• New Year’s Review and Handbag Power

     I love this!  The ladies at Lockheart sent this out for New Year’s Day and I couldn’t agree with them more (especially the ones with handbag and dogs).  The bottom has been cut off of this copy, which said, “Pay it forward.”  While I agree with the concept, I have a difficult time with the tired phrasing.  I know!  Let it go!  However, for me, it’s right up there with, “That’s so random” and “If you will.”  But, there you have it. The chopped off copy bothered me so much I didn’t post this on New Year’s as planned, but it still works for me.  If you’re one of…

  • Art Journaling With Snobs

    Kathy & I like to go to art classes every once in a while.  It’s nice to do something creative, especially with your hands.  We went to an art journaling class last spring or fall (honestly, sometimes time blurs for me), which promised to be a lot of fun.  The teacher had all of the materials we needed and she gave us prompts for the pages we created.  There were about four women who knew each other and a couple of women who came alone and then there was me and Kathy.  We are always so excited to get messy and create and spend time chatting; unfortunately, we show up and everyone…

  • Chuckle of the Day

    This is the second time I’ve seen this photo and it makes me laugh, a lot.  Not a fan of Tori Spelling, but walking a pet goat kills me. This is from the WonderWall–a “place” where I spend more time than I’d like.  Did you take note that the dog is in the wheel barrow–apparently little dogs who wear sweaters don’t get to use their paws a whole lot (as a side note, I bet it’d work up some heat and keep warm by “hoofing” it).  All around, this gave me a good laugh.  I’m not laughing at those folks, although I think they could be easy targets.  Sadly, I…
