Yay! They're done and in the mail!

I finished my card swaps (I even replaced the card my mom stole) and I put them in the mail yesterday. I am so glad. I even have a vauge idea as to what I am going to do for the remaining 2 card swaps. I still have to do the July and August, but they aren't due until June 25th, so I have some time.

I went to Ranae's house on Saturday (my uplines upline) and had a blast. She had 5 projects set up for us. Four cards each one using the new Stamps of the month from the new Summer Idea Book. Each project used one of the new paper packs too. It was so much fun.

I am getting some new toys!

So I did it, I went to kitchensinkstamps.com and ordered some dew drops! I love dew drops I think they are so cute. I probably should have just got one or two jars but I couldn't help myself, I order four or five. The total was still under $25, and truthfully, I know I will use them a lot. I can't wait to get them, I keep checking my email to see if they have shipped yet, and I only ordered them last night! Oh well, I will post projects soon.

Well....That'll teach me!

That will teach me to try to be organized, and keep things where I can find them. I had my stack of finished swap cards sitting on the table next to the front door so that when I finish the second set, I could grab them and take them to the post office. Today is a friend of my families birthday, and my mom took one of my swap cards to give as a birthday card. D'OH! Darn it all anyway! Oh, well I love my mom, I have enough paper to make another one, and on the bright side the teenager who received it said it was really cute. Oh the joys of trying to be somewhat organized. The sad thing about this is, I have a drawer full of premade cards in my craft room and my mom knows it. She just forgot where it was and she was in a hurry and they were there. Oh well life goes on.

On a side note apparently I am not the only Burt I know. My very good friend Nicole is a Burt to, so since I am in such good company I think I will try to think positively, but really the only song I really remember is Rubber Duckie your the one, you make bath time lots of fun Rubber Duckie I'm awfully fond of you!

Well I was going to say that's all but I just had another thought, for all of you who are Twilight fiends (like I am) I have recently discovered fanfiction. What a truely awesome artform. Fanfiction is when someone gets an idea to add on or change what happens in a book, and they write the story and share it with the world. Stephenie Meyer's website has links to several, my favorites so far are the Topaz and Debussy and Twilight Archives They are truely awesome, the Topaz and Debussy does have some smut stories so if your younger ones are interested I would recommend the Twilight Archives as an alternative.

I am

You Are Bert
Extremely serious and a little eccentric, people find you lovable - even if you don't love them!

You are usually feeling: Logical - you rarely let your emotions rule you

You are famous for: Being smart, a total neat freak, and maybe just a little evil

How you life your life: With passion, even if your odd passions (like bottle caps and pigeons) are baffling to others
I think I just might cry, I always thought that Bert was one of the more pathetic charatcers on Seasme Street. Oh Dear!
