I've been boo-ed by http://flowerpebble.blogspot.com/ check out her blog! It's great.

Here are the rules:Go to as many friends as you want and tell them they've been "B00-ed." Have them link back to your blog to pick up their Halloween Treat (picture) and tell them to Boo their friends.Then put the picture in your side bar so everyone knows that you've already been "boo-ed" and to send the picture to someone else.

Also check out this link of giveaways! WOW..I've been looking at blogs all morning

halloween candy are you?

I thought this was a fun quiz....

You Are Candy Corn

Your Halloween personality is whimsical, colorful, and creative.

You see Halloween as a time to get your creative juices flowing.

Each year, Halloween can't start soon enough for you.

You tend to go all out for Halloween. You decorate like crazy and always dress up.

....Can't think of a title Wed...

Here is an update on my Moonbeam progress. I haven't stitched much the past few days. Not sure why..Just haven't' wanted to stitch. Here is a close up shot..I finally figured out what was wrong with my camera so the pictures are a lot better today. I think today I am going to do some back stitching. I can't wait to see her face come alive. Stitching the moon is going to be a real pain cause it's all stitched with the blending thread. I am liking the blending thread I just don't like using such a short piece of floss. I'm used to looooong pieces of floss so I don't have to thread my needle so many times.

Trick or Treat is tomorrow night. Keith and I have decided to not take Brandon again this year. He's only 2 and I'd have to leave him in the stroller the whole time. And the city I live in doesn't have many sidewalks. So pushing a stroller through the grass doesn't sound like much fun. And another thing We don't' let him eat much candy. I am very concerned about this teeth, I want him to have GREAT teeth when he is older, unlike mine and Keith's. Soooo...We are going to pass out candy instead. Everyone thinks I'm a horrid mother and person for not taking him. Will he really remember that at 2 years old I didn't take him trick or treating?? Will it really make much difference?

Remember me posting about us going to the Rolling Ridge ranch. Well my MIL sent me some pictures that she took in the mail yesterday. Check out this Deer (I forget the name of it). I almost dyed laughing. What could have made him make this face?? LOL Toooo funny.

And here is another picture that I just fell in love with. Jadon and Brandon holding hands walking toward the petting zoo. Too sweet.

I'm off to do my weekly cleaning. Keith is FINALLY pitching in and doing the house work while I'm at work. But I still have to do the toilet cleaning, mopping the floors, dusting..blah blah blah...One step at a time...LOL

Thanks for visiting and posting comments. I love to read what everyone is up to and I try to leave comments as much as I can.

great progress

I have made such great progress on my moon beam witch! I was sick on Friday, must of had a stomach flu, I got sent home from work and stitched all day! While in bed. It was great. LOL Being sick was awful..but Keith really stepped up to the plate and took care of me. Made me hot tea all day. He's a good man when he wants to be. But now i think Brandon is coming down with it. We had a heck of a time getting him to eat anything yesterday. I finally gave in and gave him animal crackers. Usually we don't give him sweets in til he eats real food...but at least it was something. Anyways, back to my WIP...You can't really see the star yet hanging from her hat I had to frog that thing 2 time already, cause the blending thread keeps breaking up on me. It's a pain in the rear! I'm off to work..I just wanted to post a picture.

where has the time gone??

I can't believe it's been over a week since my last post. I am falling behind on my blog and my comments that I leave for others. I'm so sorry. I worked another long weekend. I got in 50 hours in 4 days. I was sooo tired yesterday that I didn't do much but watch TV and stitch. I have made great progress on my moonbeam witch. Although I didn't get to stitch much over the weekend. I am starting to like the blending thread. I have learned that if I use smaller strands it is so much easier to manage. Here is an updated pic. Today I am going to try and get her face stitched. I'm dying to see what she looks like. I'm on another witch hunt. I have fallen in love with this little witch. Isn't she cute! I think I would stitch her on black instead of white tho. Make the ghost stand out a little more. I also have some of that white glow in the dark floss that would work great on this piece.Wish me luck on my hunt!

Yesterday was my Fathers B-day. He turned 54. I can't believe how old he is. Growing up we used to have so much fun. He would take us fishing, swimming at the local creek, berry picking..always had us kids out doing something. Things sure do change, now all he does is work and spend time on his computer..or play station. He's usually so tired from working that he doesn't want to do much else. I sure loved the old days.

Keith and I went to visit Aronn and Candice last week. We got to spend time with the twins. I can't believe how much they have grown in the short time we were away! Eva has lost a good bit of her hair and looked a bit funny. Eva is also the cry baby baby. Cried just about the whole time we were there. Where as Victoria was layed back and just took everything in. Eva is in pink and Victoria is in blue/white. They are just so cute and cuddly.

Check out my new Sig! I posted a request at http://forums.delphiforums.com/sigcountry/start asking for a witch Sig with my name on it. IT is sooooo awesome. I'm off to read and catch up on blogs. Have a grrrreat week.

Moonbeams and stardust witch

Here is a picture of my new project. This is the 1st project that I have used special fibers and floss on. So far i hate it. Maybe because it's something new and i'm not used to it. I am using glissin gloss rainbow blending thread and something called color wash. I ordered them from 123 stitch. I received them in the mail today. Here is a picture of it so far. I just fell in love with this design. It is from the stoney creek magazine Oct 2007 issue.

We went to a place called Rolling Ridge Ranch over the weekend. ( http://www.visitrollingridge.com/)) It was soooo much fun. Keith's mother took us to celebrate our birthdays. (Keith's was Oct 10th). I have never seen wild animals before so this was such a treat for me. And Brandon loved it. I thought he would be scared but he wasn't. He loved feeding all the different ones. Here are my Fav animals.

a finish and happy Bday Boo!

I finished Tweeny witch yesterday! YAY! She looks great. I'm going to the store today to see if I can find a frame for her. I'm not very good at doing french knots so I left a lot of them off of her dress. I don't think the french knots do much for the design anyways. This was a fun stitch, but if you don't like doing 1/4 stitches you might want to steer clear of it cause it is FULL of them. Epically those pumpkins on her dress.

I received my Halloween exchange ornament from Kathy E. (no blog). She sent me lots of extra goodies. I just love the socks and the fabric she sent. And the owl ornament is just awesome. This was her 1st exchange ever! I'm glad she liked what I sent to her. And she loved the extra goodies I sent. This is what i sent to her.

Since I finished Tweey witch I am trying to figure out what to start today. I might do some more Halloween ornaments. My Halloween tree is looking really bare this year. ( I gave most of my ornaments away last year). If anyone would like to stitch me an ornament for my tree let me know! LOL

My son turned 2 yesterday, We had his party on Saturday. Not many people showed up but we had a great time. He loved all this gifts and especially loved the guns my sister got him. I can't believe he is 2 already. How time flys. He is really talking a lot now, I was worried in the beginning that he wasn't talking much. And I think potty training is right around the bend, he tells us AFTER he has messed his diaper. And he's always wanting to go to the bathroom to pee..I take him but he doesn't do anything. Just stares at the potty. So that will be fun..I told Keith that potty training him will have to be his deal because I can't stand up to pee. LOL

Anyways here are some pictures of Brandon and his party.

Tweeny witch WIP

I thought I would post a WIP picture of my Tweeny witch. I have a LOT more of it stitched. I love stitching the orange colors. The picture isn't the greatest, can't wait til i get a new one for Christmas. I was going to spend today back stitching but I got called into work. So the back stitching will have to wait in til I get home tonight or tomorrow morning.

I mailed out my Halloween ornament exchange package the other day. As soon as she gets it I'll post pictures of it.

Remember when I showed you this picture Of my 2 framed girls. See that horrid brown panelling I called my living room walls. Well now check it out....Keith and I spent last week painting. It look us forever to cover up that ugly brown color. IT is now a very lovely cream color.(excuse the mess on the TV stand, I was still putting things back in order) The new color makes the living room appear larger and brighter. I love the new change.

I posted a while ago about not receiving my Christmas in July ornament exchange. Well...I think that boat has finally sailed. My partner claims she has mailed me a package 3 times and it's not reached me! 3 TIMES! Now I can't believe that at all. The owner of the exchange doesn't know who to believe..me or her. I can understand that because the owner and the partner are "friends" but as to end the exchange for me she (the owner) has sent me a package from 123 stitch. I got it yesterday in the mail. She sent me the new just cross stitch ornament issue. I thought that was very nice of her. There are lots of ornaments I'm thinking of stitching up.

I gotta go get ready for work. I'm off tomorrow and I'm going to unplug the phone. I need a day off!!



Yesterday was my birthday. It was such a depressing day. I didn't get a single phone call from family or friends, no gifts to open. I went to the post office hoping to at least receive something fun in the mail, maybe something from a stitch er friend...but no nothing. How sad is that? Guess it was just another day in the year.

I found a couple ladies doing PIFs on there blogs and signed up. So now I am offering to do one here.

The rules are:

I will send a handmade gift to the first 5 people who leave a comment on THIS post requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don't know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week... but you will receive it within 365 days. That is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is "Pay It Forward" by making the same promise on your blog (or - in your life - if you happen to be blog-less). So, come-on people, join the fun!

I haven't been doing much stitching the last few days. So no WIP pic to share. Hope all is well.

I'm a bit to depressed to write much more. So I'll leave you with this picture I seen on a message board.
