My Life In Photo-Mode…

It’s late. I’m tired. My camera goes with me everywhere I go. And a picture is worth a thousand words, right?! RIGHT! Since that’s the case, here is a photo account of what’s been happening the last couple of weeks…

OK, I’ll elaborate just a tiny bit! =)

Here are some really pretty flower arrangements in a waiting room of an office I visited…

This is an ATC I received through a swap in which I participated (Inspirational Quotes) on swap-bot

And so, I was motivated to make some of my own ATC’s to share with others – it was my VERY FIRST and I had a lot of fun being creative with colors and various papers! I used wallpaper samples, faux paint samples, wrapping paper, cardstock, colored carboard, calendar paper, scrapbook paper, and a napkin…

Here’s the finished set, showing the back as well…

I had some colorful paper, so I made a simple matching card in which to enclose the ATC…

Here are some bracelets I made for another swap (I ♥ bracelets), also on swap-bot

Visited Blue Springs too. The water here is sooo clear you can see all the way through to the bottom! Manatees live here, but we didn’t see any (maybe next time)…

Along the trail, there was a sign posted (I love this sign!!)…

After church on Sunday, we stopped to “smell the roses”. Well, they were interesting plants – that counts, doesn’t it?

Top Momma no more…

I'm a Top Mommma!I became a Top Momma 4/30 @ 4:41am!!!

Fast forward to 10 :55pm. I get the e-mail: You just got booted from TopMomma.com. Geez Louise! I didn’t even get a chance to add their official button to my blog and *POOF* my 15 minutes of fame were up!

Isn’t it crazy how little things can get us so excited?!? Women.

So, what’s TopMomma? Well, it’s a pretty cool concept for bloggers (preferably moms or moms-to-be) who want more traffic to their blog sites. You register your blog on the site by uploading a picture to link to your blog, then several hours/days/weeks later get the approval e-mail that makes you feel like you just won the lottery. Your picture gets placed on the main page and the more clicks you get via your pic, the longer you stay on. I’m sure there are mommas out there developing some serious carpal tunnel sydrome from clicking on their own pictures!!!

Well, technically, I didn’t even last one day! I had a really cool picture too…”Bad Hair Day” I thought it was different and it represented me so well.

I took a picture of this pajama shirt I have. It’s one of my favorites. So much so, that I’ve worn it out with jeans or capris. Nobody can tell it’s a pajama top – except when my kids out me in public! We laugh about it so it’s cool! =)

This weekend…

I had a huuuuge yard sale! It was hot both days and I’m now proud to say I have two shades of tan: regular and flip-flop straps! Ugghhh! But, the good thing is we made $113.50 on Saturday and $127.25 on Sunday! WOW!

Well, sorry to burst your bubble – we don’t get to keep all of it. Most of the items were my mother-in-law’s who has Alzheimer’s and is now in an assisted living home. We had to clear out her apartment and turn it back in to the lanlord. We’ll put the money away and use it to make her stay at the home more comfortable.

She’s doing well and in all honesty with regards to her belongings – things are just things. Now she’ll be getting all she TRULY NEEDS: consistent care, quality family time, and some peace.
