Spam Anyone?

Have you ever taken a minute and really looked at your spam email folder?  Mine seems to think I am single and in need of meeting someone.  Mr. Spam doesn't seem to care who... man or woman... one rich to take care of me or one for me to take care, (that one cracks me up!).  He also seems to think I have an issue with belly fat, that I need to read bible quotes, that I need to acquire some insurance, and enlarge parts of my anatomy.  I'm guessing not my belly!  Sometimes scrolling through the spam folder makes me giggle!

These photos were taken during my visit to NYC.  I saw several of these guys on the streets, and thought we don't have this back home.... hmmmm, this could be a job for Matt!!  At the time he was looking for a job and I thought this could be a new career path for him. Of course, he wasn't so crazy about the idea.

My new love, wood veener from Studio Calico!  Combined with Mr. Huey.   **sigh**

A big thank you to all of the men and women who are serving and have served our country.  Wishing you all a safe Memorial Day.

The whole day...

Yes, for a change I have the whole day at home! And on NSD day too! Even thought it's just the day and not the weekend, I'm gonna be excited!!

Seems I've not gotten much of anything done here lately, because all I've been doing is reading! I used to read like this, all the time, it's just been a long time since I let myself get lost in the world of books. I read 5 books in April! FIVE! It's been years since I've done that. I got lost in the Hunger Games, surprised myself, but I did. Then in the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, another surprise. I read this book called Lunatics that David brought home.... and now, I've discovered a new Sookie Stackhouse book is out. I'm going to have to quit my day job!

Today I've got to play catch-up.... on the house... the yard... the laundry... and most importantly... on Project Life!! I am so behind it's not even funny! Good news is, I've got a retreat in 2 weeks, and I'm sure that is what I'll be working on!!

Here is my latest layout for Project 12, yes, still 2011.... but, I'm halfway done! Progress is being made! Everything is from one of my Studio Calico kits, I'm not remembering which one. I love just about everything about it, except the title. But, I'm leaving it. This was a really fun sketch to use. I'd provide the links, but honestly, not sure I can even find them after a year. Just know, it's a pagemaps sketch, as are all of the Project 12 layouts.
Hope you all find some time to play today... and enjoy NSD!!
