It Starts with Heart

I created these fun invitations for my daughters big 12th birthday party with the new kit "It starts with Heart" by Meredith Cardall. You can get the kit at FS or ES. I printed the design on photo paper, rounded corners, punched a hole and tied to a bottle of fingernail polish. Since the girls will be doing a lot of fun girlie things like painting fingernails, makeovers, etc. I thought it would be a creative way to make an invitation.

Music to Live by

Well I decided to finally open one of the presents my husband gave me for Xmas. It is super cool turntable(for those old fashioned things called records) and a CD player, tape player, plus radio that can transfer all these into MP3 files. Plus I can listen to my MP3 player through it's speakers. Well I pulled out my old records and tapes from jr. high and high school and beyond. Wow! I spend 2 or more hours just listening to memories. Funny how music takes you right to a time in your life. My taste in music is a little eclectic. I would say I listen to Alternative but way back when I liked a little of everything. Take some time to listen to the music you love. I did and I plan on doing more of it in the near future.

Heart Day Projects

 Krystal Hartley released a new kit today called "The Very Thought of You" done with Scrapkitchen Designs and I actually made some hybrid projects with it. I've been a very bad CT member lately and need to make up for it so I made a bunch. It's a little early for Valentines but never to early to say "I love you" to the ones you love. I used the papers and elements and then printed on photo paper. Cut out and added ribbon, ink, eyelets, and lots of sweets.

"The Lovely Bones"

My husband got us free movie preview passes to this movie on Tuesday. Date night in the middle of the week-Yeah! It was a good movie but pretty sad. I did like it even though it was sad. It had whimsical parts and creepy parts and heartwarming parts too. It makes you want to keep your kids close and enjoy them as much as possible. Last weekend we rented My Sisters Keeper about a girl dying of cancer (5 hankie movie for me). My husband suggested we see a comedy next time- 2 sad movies in a row is just too much.

Scary Thing Happened on the way to the Condo

Well on the way up the lovely snowy, wintery canyon road to clean the condo I decided to hit some ice and have a crazy ride all over the road (getting very close the edge that goes down to a very cold river) and then hitting head on into the cement barrier in the middle of the freeway. Well I was only going about 50 MPH but you would think that all that spinning would slow me down but I don't think it did. Luckily I have this huge big metal bar thing on the front of my Tahoe and it ripped it right off. My license plate was a wadded up piece of metal but the funny thing is you can hardly tell we had a wreck. We have to take it in tomorrow to the body shop to see if the frame is bent(if so they total your car- which would be nice to get a new car but sad because I like my car) Luckily no other car was coming at that time or I might not be writing this lovely blog post. I sort of feel stiff all over but nothing a hot bath won't cure. My husband and I were blessed today I guess(He may not want to ride with me again though LOL) Hope your day was better than mine!
