Tuesday




morning everyone!!

first, big thank you to everyone on board with the contest!!! So far I have a ton of entries through here, my shop, and myspace...so it will be a good contest.

For rules of the contest please see the blog post titled..."Monday"

ok so yesterday was hectic and I worked non stop, I even worked during Heroes!! Finally at about 11:00 I fell into bed to relax with the May issue of Vogue.

you see, my handsome bubs went to the PO to mail some of my packages and came back with it, at first I thought he had gone to the store and bought me a foreign Vogue, but no...it was American Vogue...and it had Models on the cover, yes...models!!!!!!!

I can't even remember the last time American Vogue had models on the cover, can you? Anyway, I usually sort of dread the summer spring issues of fashion magazines as I am not a "summery" kind of girl, but this issue of Vogue, is the best I have seen in quite some time, I seriously think I could blog about it for a week, it's that good.

but, I don't have time for that...I have a few hours to actually do some art and then I have a couple graphic design things I must get done, phone calls to make and more goodies to package.

Oh, and a big congrats to both Ben and Tara for jumping out into an early favorite position because they both commented on the blog and bought something...you see I think they are trying to "fix the contest" but remember loyal blog readers, this is not like the Quiz Show scandals of the 1950's, I have integrity, I cannot be bought.

(well I can be bought but it would take designer handbags to do it, or shoes)

here is an idea I stole from Karen Beth's blog, that I just loved.

5 hearts and 5 hates

here are 5 things I heart

1- the moments before you fall asleep at night then everything is all dreamy and surreal

2- ice cream dates

3- pictures of old movie stars

4- the rare mornings my bubs and I have to sleep in (about 2 times a month if we are lucky) and before we are both fully awake we just kind of snuggle in together and can't really talk, we just sort of squeak to each other at fist.

5- rain

5 things I hate

1- hillybillies

2- the fact that people light off fire works in the park next door all spring, summer, and fall

3- the fact that sometimes I tell people I am originally from New England and they say things like, "I thought you looked foreign"....there are so many things wrong with that statement I can;t begin to start, I just hate it all.

4- driving and being in a car for too long

5 - being poor.

ok, that's it for now loves. I am showing a new set of blocks I did, be back tomorrow for letters to celebrities.

****small side note, as of Thursday I will be taking all the art cards out of my shop as well as select paintings on canvas panel....they may not return as they will be going to Pittsburgh with me. If there are any you want, grab them now, or if you ask, I can hold things too...I'm nice like that.

Hooray for Tuesday.

It's a song. Never mind.

Hey, listen: don't give Ben any prizes. I don't care how much he buys from you.

JK. Let the best person (read: me) win!

Obviously if she's letting the best person win, that would be me.

How awesome was Heroes last night? I don't like that Linderman at all, even if he can make the dead flowers pretty again.

I think everyone is trying to fix the contest except me. (I will buy you some designer shoes.) lol.

Now you are going to force me to spend money on Vogue.

I love not hearing my alarm clock when I can just "naturally" wake up, and it's neither too early nor too late when I do naturally wake up. I also like reading in bed.

Hooray for models on Vogue! I almost bought it, I probably should to support covers with models but I also know someone will toss it into the recycling bin in my building before too long....Wow, I sound so cheap. OK I will just go buy it now.

Perplexing... I thought I had a subscription to Vogue but I've not seen one in my little mailbox in a LOOOONG time so perhaps it has run out. Hmph. Oh well... this issue sounds delightful. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Sounds like after such a long day of work that you enjoyed it!

Loved your 5 loves + 5 hates! I also love little lists like that. :)

xo,

Karen Beth :)

When I received my Vogue in the mail yesterday, I was excited beyond words. Every fashion blog has talked and posted photo of the new cover.

So I had an early dinner, showered and crawled into bed with my Vogue. Argh...what a wonderful evening we had. :-)

N.B.: I need to get a life and/or a boyfriend.
