Oofos are here

They came yesterday in the mail!

They're so comfy.

I think until it snows, these are going to be my wear all the time shoes.

I hope they hold up to the wear and tear that Im going to give them.

I guess I'll find out!

The mocha color is beautiful. Wish I had gotten another pair in a bright color just so I could switch it up.

My daughter is already eyeing them up. Sadly, her feet are almost as big as mine, and these seem to fit her just slightly better.

If I win another pair down the road, I'll have to get a bigger size ;)

Another tshirt

This time I decided to use the markers I bought at AC Moore.

Fabri-mark markers aren't too shabby.

I used the stencils and holders that came with the screen printing kit.

Not that I can't freehand, but I wanted perfect copies of the turtle.

It turned out quite well so far...

Kashi magic

My Moms Meet Kashi came... Woooo hooooo. Perfect timing. Can't wait to share these.

Nothing really

Nothing exciting... Just housework and sunshine.

And maybe another iPhone photo or two.

Tshirt from Was not the one I thought I won though. Kinda sad there...

But my stuff came and it rocks! Still can't believe I won that gift code. :)

School tomorrow

Not for me, but kids are getting ready.

Me? I'm still working on wedding items. Not mine ;)

The wreath and now the throw away bouquet.


I made a wreath today from 2 coat hangers, newspaper and scrap material to cover it

The bows and flowers were made from leftover ribbon.

Making some shirts

After scoring some cheap plain tshirts yesterday we decided to try out the cheap screen printer I bought them last Christmas. ( late, I know)

Going well so far...

Sweet! Now for the sharing!

R/c madness

Does anyone else race rc cars and read this blog? Just curious to see.


Got hooked up now. Gonna post on the go with the phone.

Should have realized I could do that sooner.

A photo

Just testing. Woo hoo

Hello? :p

I know there's no one out there really waiting to hear my every word... that's ok though.

I've been busy surfing the net, looking for a real job that pays enough and getting my two kids ready to go back to school.

Im completely interested in finding some promotions to do on here... something crafty, graphic, photo oriented even...

If I could get some luck and some goodies, Id pass them on to you too. :)

anyhow.. enough with the rambling. Have you seen my pinterest boards?

Check it out... I actually pin stuff worth while. Now, IF I could figure out how to get my pins to backfeed into this blog, you guys would be set ;P

I spend a lot of time yesterday uploading photos to 500px in hopes that someone will buy a print or two.

A digital download is probably all anyone I personally know would be able to afford, but there's always the chance that someone out there wants one of my photos for their walls...

Just a button...

Hyphens Happen

Be sure to look for nuggets in my store...

Day 2

Been trying to keep things moving in the right direction.

SO far Ive set up a facebook page and started a zazzle storefront. Its not much, but its a start.

Im really hoping that this gets me to where I want to be...

Poof... a blog is born.

Truth is... it's not that simple.

To properly hatch a blog, you should give 10 years of dedication to something, before being outsourced and faced with an uncertain future.

After incubating that with a few beers, a few friends and a screw it attitude, remove from oven and hit post.

Though this blog should primarily focus on my penchant for graphics, it does not mean that my obsession with photography isn't going to get a LOT of airtime.
