Sweet Revenge!

My 13 year old daughters greatest joy in life is to aggravate me, but in a fun way. If I am working on a craft she will casually walk by and swipe one of my supplies, then stand by and watch as I turn the house upside down looking for it.....all the while she has it behind her back, just holding back laughter. Or I will make a glass of ice water, and I like to sit it on the counter for a few minutes so it gets nice and cold...I come back....its gone or "someone" has drank it. Most recently she knew I was anticipating a package from Julie of Pieceful Bits. She always picks up the mail on her way in from the busstop and recognized the package and quickly hijacked and wouldnt let me have it....we struggled and I can tell you it wasnt pretty, but I won because I'm the momma. Anyway, it is very hard to get back at her because she is really laid back and hardly anything bothers her EXCEPT, my vintage wind-up clocks!!! SO, I gathered them all up, wound them up, and put them on the shelf in the bathroom......DRIVES her nuts in the morning, thats my payback. I, of course, love them, even if the bathroom is right outside my door and I have to listen to that ticking all night :)

Valentine Giveaway

Geesh, slowly but surely I am figuring out blogger, but I dont know why my pictures didnt appear in the order I downloaded them. Anyways, this post will just be all screwed up and backwards. So, instead of what was supposed to be first, this is second. I am doing a Valentines Tree this year and since I have no ornaments, I have made a few, this in one of the little glitter wreaths I made for it.

Now, this was supposed to be first. I joined a few Valentines swaps, some are whimsy jars, matchboxes, and decorated heart boxes. I have made a few of the heart boxes and had a ball doing it (other than glue gun burns), my partners havent received them yet, so I dont know if I gained their approval. The one you can win is below. Just so you know, I am still learning to get the hang of them, so you may find a few mistakes on it. But, I am going to fill it up with all sorts of pink and red goodies....not gonna show you on here, that will be a surprise. And since I had to eat all the candy, I will replace that too (with better stuff). Just leave a comment and I will pick a winner on Sunday.

Oh Yeah, and these I made to go under my Valentines tree (this picture is actually in the right space). I have a few more sets and will be listing them in my lollishops soon. I have the bodies made, but they are headless right now because we have the slowest mail delivery in this town that ever was!!
