Get, Get, Getaway!

Ahhhh....heading to the cabin with the sis-in-laws!  Can't wait!

  The sun is shining, the weather forecast is looking good, and this chicky is soooo ready to leave her troubles behind for a few days and go relax and laugh with my funny sistahs!

I might even try and catch me a couple of fish if the mood hits!

Have a wonderful Memorial day weekend everyone ♥♥♥
--see you next week!!

Miss Rosie Gets Rowdy

As you may or may not know, we have a couple of cute little fur babies that live with us....there is Daisy and Miss Rosie.  They have very different personalities, those two--this is for sure!  lol  Rosie is laid back, quiet, and very polite.  Daisy is the rowdy, cocky, inquisitive one.  Well, I recently won a new cat toy from Marvelous Melissa on Etsy in a drawing and the prize was one of her darn!Socks cat toys.

Let me tell you...Daisy totally loved the toy...she was up on the table inspecting the package before I even opened it, lol--and she has spent a lot of happy time playing with it since then. 

But what I wanted to share with you are these cute pics of our very sober Miss Rosie getting rowdy with the new toy!  LOL

It's so fun to see her playing, she rarely does.'s my favorite.....

Thanks so much Melissa.....what a fun prize!  I would highly recommend her well-thought-out cat toys, both of our kitties have thoroughly enjoyed it!

Lucky Ducky My Deer

Just got a call that they are postponing my radiation until noon, so I have a little time to show off a couple cuties I finished up this weekend!! 

I was called a "Lucky Duck" for winning StarryDeborah's drawing, and you know it's true! lol  Which reminded me that I had this darling little duck/pocket knick knack sitting in my studio, just waiting to be made into something. 

So I made a little pincushion to stick in the pocket and also made up a couple of flower head pins to stick in there, just for fun!

And then, I got a cute new deer stamp and just had to make a little something with that...(don't you just love Michael's 40% off coupons!)

                        Dear Dear
Totally girly and cute as a button---oh, and with a cute button too!  :o)  These are actually little open-up cards which are blank inside for you to pen a special message to your Dear!

So, is anyone else having a pain in the arse with Blogger lately?  The pics don't go where they should and then when you move them (which is not going as easy as it should either), they start centering all your text??  AND trying to add a link to a picture doesn't seem to work anymore either.....Grrr.......

I'm a Lucky Lucky Lady

Guess what I got in the mail?? 

Did you even try guessing or did you just automatically jump down here to see?  Lazy..... hmph.

Well, I got something really special from our friend StarryDeborah!!  I was lucky enough to win her 100th follower giveaway over on her lovely blog--I won the Tea Package.  The really cool thing was that on the same day, she just happened to be the winner of my Etsyversary weird is THAT? lol 

Don't you love getting packages from creative people??   Such a treat...check out the vintage kitty tag...honestly I think this is one of the cutest tags I have EVER seen!  Thank you Deborah for parting with it, I'm sure it wasn't easy!

Inside the pretty hot pink tissue was this sweet little concoction!!  How perfectly lovely! I am going to hang this little cutey by my computer to hold my lip balm and hand lotion. 
These goodies were tucked into that little basket...some cute sticky notes, that darling dimensional teapot magnet, which I've already stuck on my filing cabinet in my studio, and an I Love Tea pin.  Love it all!!  Thank you so much Deborah, what a lovely treat!

Tags Galore in the midst of Blabbing

Hello! Well, I did it again...I have every intention of doing a better job at blogging, and then weeks go by! lol I think for today I am going to blab a bit about stuff and intersperse it with some of the cute tags I've made lately--how does that sound??

I've been very tired due to chemo and the accompanying anemia, but I can still sit and make tags, and that makes me happy!

I got a new camera from my Sweety for Mother's day...I must say it is making picture taking much more enjoyable, and the pics are so much clearer!  Love it!

Lately I don't have much to talk about that doesn't involve cancer. I certainly don't want to just sit here and talk about THAT all the time, as if it hasn't already taken over so much of my life, dammit!  But, maybe I'll just talk about it a bit and get it off my chest, huh?  That might help.  There is some good news...I had my last chemo treatment! Yeah! It was my 24th dose and they decided that I needed a break. Yes, thank you :o)

I think my Sis-in-law and I are going to try and get up to the cabin for a weekend very soon (possibly Memorial weekend) would be so great to get away from the city and just relax for a bit and maybe catch some fish. Doesn't that sound nice?

Next week now they have me scheduled to go in and get set up for radiation--BRAIN radiation! YIKES. The kind of cancer that I have has a tendency to work it's way up there and they want to radiate in case there are any rogue cells up there already.  I say, get in there and zap the hell out of them!  Grrrrr!

(this little bird reminds me of myself...a  chubby little gal that just keeps on flying!)

Know what is really bumming me out? I have cute new little hairlets trying to grow on my head, they are about 1/4" long right now, just as cute as can be (really, I look a bit like a baby bird! lol) and the radiation will cause me to lose those little guys --dang it!  lol  I feel very motherly towards those little fellas!

There, thanks for listening...I feel better!
