Cock-a-doodle-do


BUSY FRIDAY!
Today has been way too busy and it's only 4p.m.

Have a casino event that I had to help decorate for this morning - missed my WW time slot so will either go weigh in in the a.m. or wait until next week.

Have 2 painting classes tomorrow ~ one on glass and the other on fabric painting. PLAID has come out with a new fabric paint that is really soft to the touch - not like the old 80's stuff. It dries well and washes in the washer well.

Not sure if it's out on the market yet - got mine through hsn.com.

Anyway, have a student coming to the fabric class that is going to a cooking school in Atlanta soon and she wanted to paint an apron for herself and her husband but knew he wouldn't like the flowers we are painting on his. SO...I told her I'd be happy to paint a rooster for him and here it is. A rooster this bold needs a name don't you think??? My kids have their votes in, what do you think?? Leave me some ideas ~ he needs a name.

Angie, it was great chatting with you today! Thanks for calling and I'm sorry your bill is gonna be huge! Over an hour from England to here - YIKES. The conversion rate there is horrendous right now - it's over 2 to 1 which means you pay double for everything. Don't miss that at all but I do miss living in England. Good luck with your scrapbooking!

Gotta get my clothes ironed and get ready to go and be a Texas Hold Em dealer at the Casino event - thank goodness our family plays poker weekly ~ I'll know pretty much what I'm doing (although I still can't remember the value of the chips ~ the kids have to remind me all the time and I still forget) Might take a sharpie and write it on my hand ~ hehehe.

Welcome home Oma and Opa ~ can't wait to hear about your awesome cruise!

Have an outstanding weekend.

Hi Sandy, I love the rooster and I'm thinking of a name. But can't. Mostly because I am so overwhelmed with the envelope that my mail lady just delivered moments ago. I haven't had time to take it all in yet. What you sent me is unbelievable and I can't wait to use in my art. I am so over saving stuff because it is so pretty. I think norah'S presence has helped me with that. OK gotta go.
Hope it is OK that as soon as I can snap a pic I want to share my gift on my blog. K? You are one special lady.

Sandy,
Don is crazy about the Rooster apron. He says he will wear it proudly and you can have the ladies name it anything you'd like. He's calling it "MINE!!".
See you in February.
