how cool!


{the above is an atc i made for danielle’s swap, as a sort of thank you for hosting her swap 🙂 } 

*** 1/31/07 addendum*** i saw that wednesday stamper‘s theme for this last week of january is “think pink”…well, i thought of this atc i recently made & it is oh-so pink, nicht wahr?  i’m a pink sort of gal & love using this color any chance i can get 🙂 !

this morning, i was checking on the osc swap group & found out through blog sis/co-swap administrator lia that our swap was mentioned on whip up, a wicked cool handcrafts portal!  i am so going to put their link on my blogroll…always happy to add wonderful links to my sidebar *smile*….

in the link i mentioned above, they mentioned amy’s swap (that i’m in & have already mailed my atcs to her) as well as a couple of other cool links, which one of them is a valentine card swap>>>it’s still open until feb. 26th!  i know (i did mention previously that i was NUTs & BOLTz), i just finished up on a slew of swaps recently, but i can’t seem to resist doing another one>>>card-making is so my thing>>>i love making cards & valentine ones at that! plus…this will get my butt in gear to start restocking my shop, which has been a bit neglected lately…

oh yes, before i sign off & head to my sweatshop studio, i have to mention a shout out to my niece, isabel, who just turned the big “1-0″….i can’t hardly believe that she is 10 already!!!! the year she was born was also the year i met my dh>>>lots of good things happened that year!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY DEAR ISA!!!! have a fabulous day today!!!!   uncle joe & i will be coming to see you this weekend for your 10th birthday bash at the roller rink>>>we wouldn’t miss it for the world honey!!!!!  love & hugs to you sweetheart!!!! enjoy your special day!


the above snap was taken on isa’s 1st birthday with grandma (my mom) & pinata friend….i can’t believe that this little girl is growing up!!!!  i can remember when she was a wee babe & babysitting this child!  my sibs & i used to fight over who would get to babysit her (she’s the first grandchild on my side of the family)…wow, those were the days!  can’t wait to see her & yipee, get to roller skate with her & the other chitlins’…it’s hilarious to watch my nieces & nephews go nuts at the roller rink!

well, that’s all for now…have a wicked good monday & rest of the week!
