I am usually the painter... I love to paint! However, Michael started the painting without my help and I have had to let him do most of the work himself. Let's just say... we have a different way of approaching things and his way has left me unable to do any work without his help. :) So... it has taken a while. Scheduled times to work on it have not worked out and Michael has been really busy with extra computer work, etc.
Anyway... guess I am chatty in the early hours! Must be delirious!
While he is waiting for the 1st coat to dry on the last section of room... I thought I would go ahead and post a card!
This card is one of my very first publications! It is in the Stamp It issue of Paper Crafts that went on sale on Jan. 19th!
I have three cards in that issue ... all of them pretty CAS! I think CAS is definitely 'my style'! Apparently... because everyone says it is and any challenge 'wins/mentions' and any publication acceptances have all been cards that are completely CAS. I guess I just need to stick with those! :) I have realized recently that if this is truly the case... I have way too many supplies! :) Ha!
On another note... I want to share a couple of cute things about Carver.
We ask Carver not to say "Oh my gosh!"... instead we say "Oh my goodness"! Well... apparently at school (and everywhere else) he is the manners police. That boy doesn't miss ANYONE saying "Oh my gosh" and he is not shy about calling them out on it!
Last week, Carver got up out of his chair to correct one of his teachers for saying it. The teacher apologized and thanked him for telling her. Well... she said it again... Carver gets out of his chair and this time points his finger at her and says, "You're gonna learn this... we say Oh my goodness!"!! The teacher couldn't wait to get to Michaels office to tell him all about it! That boy is a mess!
It doesn't matter where we are... he gets on to anyone who says "Oh my gosh!"!!
We have started this new thing... well.. I did! When Carver gets real whiney... I always say... you need to quit being a whiney hiney! Well... recently I started saying... "do you have a whiney monster in your hiney?". Well... that seems to work for the time being. He will stop whining. He either wants me or daddy to get his hiney and get that monster out OR... he has decided that he can toot that monster out! :) That is usually his method of choice!
Speaking of tooting... I have my dad to thank for this! Carver has started saying when he toots... "Who fired that shot?"!! Grandpa's... what do you do with them? I have to admit... I do think that one is funny but I would prefer my son not say it!
Okay... one last thing before I go! These are all things I have wanted to blog about but haven't really had the time!
On Sunday night, I am speaking to a group of high school girls about my choices as a teenager and about my cancer, etc! I AM NOT a public speaker! It scares me to death! So... any prayers that you guys would offer up for me would be so much appreciated! I am not nervous about sharing my story... that is fine as long as I can come up with enough stuff to talk about! The actual speaking part is what makes me nervous! Thanks guys! :)
Peace and Love!
