On The Road Again!

Hello My Friends!

On The Road Again!  Yep, a quick overnighter to Dallas in the morning!  This time we are not leaving at the crack but pretty near close!  LOL!  Doing some last minute market stuff before all hell breaks out for the holiday season!  Can you believe it?  The Holidays are right around the corner!  I know, I know cover your eyes if you have to!  Hahaha!  I love the holiday season!  Love it!  This year I'm promising myself to start earlier as last year the house looked undone, gifts were purchased last minute and I was totally unorganized!  I was so caught off guard and this year....I WILL HAVE PARTIES AT MY HOUSE!  I WILL HAVE THINGS WRAPPED!  I WILL ENJOY IT!!   OK, enough with the holidays!  I don't want to push it!   (No Hate Mail Please! LOL!) 

I'm sitting here on my porch in Granger, Texas at what, 10:30 p.m. and there is a cool crispness to the air and I'm totally in heaven!  Tomorrow,  I'm sure will be back in the high temps, but today, tonight has been a dream!  A touch of Fall Y'all!  Yahoooo!

I had the coolest day today!  I actually got to meet one of my online friends, Kim aka Peanut who lives near me in Austin.  We met at Archiver's (An incredible paper crafting store) and she really was an excellent enabler...err...help with spending my money by showing me all the goods she a scoped out on a previous trip. Thanks Kim!  LOL!  I came home and crafted the afternoon away and looked up at the clock and the day was gone.  Amazing how time really does fly!  One project completed that I will show you next week.  Can't wait.  It's a fast and easy and VERY simple to do.  You talk about tease...LOL!  

Last, I wanted to let you know that this coming Monday, Graphic 45 will feature one of my DT projects for September.  It too is a fast and easy small project and I think its pretty cool.  I hope that you will join me over at Graphic 45 blog Monday to see it...…I'd appreciate it!

Thank you all for you're AMAZING comments on the Traveling Dylusions project.  YOU ROCK!

Thank you for coming by to visit!  Have an awesome night!

  4. I deny having anything to do with spending your money... I did not twist your arm and send you back into the aisles 3 times after your first check out! Alright, well, maybe a little. I forgot to show you the wonderful chair stamp that would be great for a Dylusion. Maybe next time. Can't wait for your next project. I think I stole a little of your mojo. I got home and tore into the Nutcracker paper and worked until my eyes got fuzzy. This paper is so much prettier in hand than on the computer. Have a great trip "up Nort" as we Yankees say!

  8. Your post made me smile. I am off to get some Graphic 45 paper and treats as it is a new line to me (hard to believe, I know...) but what you do with their products has me so in awe! I promised myself that I will start early this year, as I had the same kind of year you did..Ifelt rushed and unprepared and didn't do enough celebrating and "enjoying". I used to bake cookies and treats and give them out etc.. I totally ran out of time. Thanks for inspiring! Enjoy your trip.

  11. I Hope you enjoyed that "almost like Fall" breeze you had yesterday, I woke up to it here In NW Florida this morning. We sent a lot of time on the front porch just enjoying it. I would creep back inside and work on one of the many unfinished projects I have going on, but soon that sweet breeze would call me back outside. All A while my head was filled with your Dylusions.... :)
