Bill Organizer

Every year or two I buy one of these bill organizers for my monthly bills. Yes, OCD. This year I thought I would make my own. I bought the pockets from Office Max. I covered them and the cover with Stampin Up Spiced Cider paper. I made the monthly chart in word. I then laminated the cover and ran the whole thing through my friends Zutter. It will be interesting to see how well it holds up over time (the ones I have purchased always seem to fall apart and rip).

Happy Birthday Kristina

I made this for my cupcake obsessed friend Kristina. We had a surprise party for her last weekend. I made this card to match the colors in the gift wrap.

Frankie ATC

This was for my ATC group this month. Our theme was masculine. I never do masculine so it was a stretch for me. I figured Frankenstein is a boy and I was itching to use the Friend Good stamp. I made this a while back when at the stamping retreat Granada Getaway. It was a super fun weekend with friends and the retreat was beautiful. Plus we one it in a drawing. What could be better, a girls weekend and it was free.

True Friendship none of this sissy crap

I have seen this poem before but recently received it from my sister again and thought I would post it. It's very me.

Here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship.
You will see no cutesy little smiley faces-
Just the stone cold truth of our great friendship.

1. When you are sad -- I will jump on the person who made you sad
like a spider monkey jacked up on mountain dew.

2. When you are blue -- I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.

3. When you smile -- I will know you are plotting something that I must be involved in.

4. When you are scared -- I will rag on you about it every chance I get.

5. When you are worried -- I will tell you horrible stories about how much Worse it could be until you quit whining.

6. When you are confused -- I will use little words.

7. When you are sick -- Stay away from me until you are well
Again. I don't want whatever the heck you have.

8. When you fall -- I will point and laugh at your clumsy butt.

9. This is my oath.... I pledge it to the end. 'Why?' you may ask;
'because you are my friend'.

Friendship is like peeing your pants,
everyone can see it,
But only you can feel the true warmth..
