 I love sharing with you and I LOVE hearing from you!! It brings a big ole smile to my face!! 


Okay, It's Sunday, about 1145pm to be exact and I want to know WHERE my weekend went? SERIOUSLY??? There was no time to get down and dirty with stamps this weekend.  

The kids had us wrapped up in activities and Science Fair projects the entire time.  They are lucky I had a moment to break away and clean their undies.  Seriously though, Brandon spent 8 hours working on his Science Fair project proposal that was already late.  Might I mention this got him in a little BIG trouble.  The punishment was he would do nothing until it was complete. His punishment gave me 10 new gray hairs.  Sitting with him for 8 hours- YES, I said 8 hours helping him research this Science Fair project was just awesome-NOT.  It was a dual effort on Russ and I's part with Russ sitting with Brandon longer than I.  I was ready to poke both of my eyes out with a fork.  Funny how when you help your kids with homework you feel COMPLETELY stupid afterwards.  I do remember graduating high school and college.  According to the help I was giving my son, I shouldn't have graduated.  

Alexis and I did a doosie today as well.  We were up and out the door late morning for a  going away party for one of her gymnastic coaches.  Being the last minute nelly that I am we quickly drove to the grocery store to get a BIG ole thing of Chicken Wings and a Poinsettia to wish her luck.  We get to the "party" only to notice there isn't a party.  I quickly check my emails only to find the party is next weekend.  Are you kidding ME? The chicken wings were really good and now I'm praying I can keep this stupid Poinsettia alive for a week.  

So, the one Poinsettia I know that I can keep alive is the one from the Watercolor Winter stamp set.

  1. Oh my goodness this post made me laugh! I am THRILLED to have won the blog candy, but you are the one who deserves the prize for six years of humor, inspiration and a sharing spirit! Thank you so much, and best of luck with the live poinsettia, the stamped one is lookin' good!

  2. LOL, Kimberly, you are too funny. Isn't it amazing how faster we age because of our children, NOT. LOL  I love that tag, it's gorgeous. The Poinsettia will last, they are very good plants, just make sure you water it. LOL Congratulations to Lynne.

  3. Kimberly, I so needed to laugh today after being sick myself and also my two boys being sick with my hubby out of town!  Love the Vintage buttons on this creation!  Congrats to Lynne also.
