um, so...yeah...

good morning!

ok, before I go into anything I need to make a confession, and it may change how a lot of you think about me.

you see.....last night I watched Dancing with the Stars, which in and of itself seems pretty lame on the outside, but's worse.

I voted, 6 times, online.

sigh, I voted for Jennie Garth, you see, I knew this would happen, I saw my 90210 Kelly Taylor dancing and I freaked, lost my mind.

It's the only explanation.

And there was I am not going to bore you with the details, but just note that I was glued, GLUED to the tv, which really is not something I like to be...So I need to set limits or really I would probably be watching every hair brained show on tv.

cough....ahem....moving on.

yesterday I made the new set of blocks I have pictured today, and I really think that they might be my favorite block set I have even made. I am trying hard to resist the urge to renew the listing on etsy almost constantly so they remain at the top...I jut want to scream out from the hill tops "look at these", yes, like a crazy person.

right now I am in an odd state of mind, I am very please with what I am doing creatively at the moment, which is good, but at the same time I am finding it very slow a little part of me is panicking, and wondering if the time will soon come that I will need to get a "real job", to today, apart from making things and packaging I am going to try and spread my little wings and get some more exposure.

so what will that mean...not sure at the moment, but I will let you know as soon as I know.

with that I bid you a very fond farewell, this is blog post #297, so I only have a couple more posts until blog #300 and the "Blog LOVE" sale is over.

remember just to mention "blog love" in the message to seller section and wait for a new invoice to receive 20% off.

the new blocks are amazing.
I am so sad that I missed heroes. I hope it was exciting and just as good as last year.
I forgive you for watching and voting. everyone has a weakness.
I spent most of yesterday with top model on in the background while painting, their's my weakness.
Things will pick up online, I imagine folks are acclomating back to school and back to the grind, give them time to grow tired of life and they'll come back

Nice blocks!!

I vote on American Idol all the time. I watch it with my kids and we get very involved. I understand your predicament.

I taped "Dancing with...". I love watching the dancing but can't stand all the stupid stuff in between. (Except for maybe when they talk about Wayne Newton tonight).

I'm so glad Heroes is back!

I missed last night's show. Thank God for Tivo. Can't wait to see it tonight. I'm obsessed with that show.

I would have voted for Kelly Taylor. Especially if she was 1) dancing against Brenda or 2)still sporting her bangs.

Oh girl... I will be GLUED - GLUED, I say - to the TV tonight. Tonight is the season premiers of Bones and House, two of my fave fave favorites. So, I am definitely NOT TO BE BOTHERED between 7 and 9 tonight. The house will have to be on fire around me!

I don't like reality shows but I know tons of people who do. I think it is kind of funny and neat that you voted. Someone has to!

I love the blocks too. Mahvelous, dahling!

90210 rocked my face off! my mom always said it was too risque so I had to sneak & watch it :) Had I known Jenny was on dancing with the stars I may have actually snatched the remote out of the feisty 5 yr olds hand & turned off the cartoon network!

Yuck, i hope you don't have to get a real job. Those are the worst. I'm sure things will pick up at the shop.

I didn't know Kelly Taylor was on Dancing with teh Stars! I have never watched that show, but I love my Kelly, so maybe I'll give it a quick peek.

And I TiVoed Heroes but haven't watched it yet, so I skipped that part of your post! ;)

We got hooked on Dancing with the Stars a while back and it's become a must-see. But I've never voted yet. I've gotta hold something back! haha

I love the new blocks! Oh it is heroe's night tonight in this household. When watching trashy tv (not TOO trashy though!) I can always justify it by saying I am working too (ummm that really means blog reading....)

Sending you good thoughts to banish away the possibility of you having to get a 'real world' job'.

Oh yes, I can definitely see why you are so very fond of those blocks! Fantastic!

PS I have collage on my blog today. Would you believe it? Come take a look.

You won't have to get a "real" job. No, you won't.

HAHAHA! I've mapped out my week of tv schedule for the season premiers so I know I'm going to lose at least 2 hours/day of my life to that box in the living room
