And NOW...The STUDIO

Hello everyone. Did you all have a nice weekend? Ours was pretty quiet. However, that's about to change in another week or so. Soccer will be starting back up...YAY!!!

On Saturday, Jayla and I ran a few errands while daddy went to have some work done on his car. As if I NEEDED to go there on a Saturday, Jayla and I went to JoAnns. You guys, I think I got the best shopping deal I've ever gotten. Well, the best that I can remember. For those of you who scrapbook or do other crafts where you have to cut...there's a need for a self-healing mat, right? Well, I needed one for my new studio, as my old one was all yucky and too small. SO...I've just been putting off getting one because I'm so stinkin cheap. I look at them everytime I go to the store, but I refuse to pay for them, lol. As always, I went to look at them yesterday at JoAnn's. Guys, they had a 24"x36" Fiskars folding/portable cutting mat on clearance. The regular price for it was $45! Ok, I would NEVER have paid that, regardless of how badly I needed it. But this sucker was on clearance for....$9.97!!! I about passed out. Oh, and get this, it was the LAST one. Doesn't that just tell you that I was meant to have it? I'm REAL excited about that find. It pays to be patient :-D.

Later, Jayla and I went to Sally's Beauty Supply. It's time again to do the ole girls hair. And it is such a chore that neither of us look forward to. Actually, it touch up time...ARGH!!! My challenge was to find something that I can use on that childs head to make the washing process easier. She's too little to go "old skool" and hold her head over in the kitchen sink. She's too big to lay up on the counter with her head back in the sink. And my back can't handle the fully emersed bathtub washing. Anyway, I think we found something. I sure hope it works.

After our errands, we called daddy to see what was going on with his car. They were still working on it. So we drove over there to go meet him for lunch. But isn't it always this way...we get there and they were just finishing up (insert rolling eyes). Anyway, we still went and had a nice Mexican lunch together. I love Fajitas! (now!)

Today, we had a great Sunday School lesson and a wonderful church service. Later in the day, I took Jayla to a birthday party for my friend, Stacey's daughter. She turned 3 today. The party was so cute. Then in the middle of the fun, the tornado sirens started blaring and we had to cram all the kids in some hall closets. They were all screaming and crying and the rain was coming down in SHEETS! Once it finally let up, Jayla told me, through her tears and snotty nose, "Mom, that storm scared me out of the creeps!" I love the way she phrases things, lol. Fortunately, the tornadoes the news talked about weren't in our area. We just had some severe t-storms. But all is well now.

Well, boys and girls, guess what time it is? It's FINALLY time for the STUDIO GRAND OPENING :-). You guys have been so patient. I think I've already told you guys that I ABSOLUTELY love my new room. I am SO proud of how it turned out. I don't think there's much more I can say about it. How bout a sneak peak...

I'm such a tease, huh? Well, that's all you're gonna get for now....Ok, ok...I'm just kidding. I had SO many pix that I wanted to share. And it would've been a MAJOR overload had I put them here. So, if your interest has been peeked and you wanna see more, just click on this link. http://twopeasinabucket.kaboose.com/pg.asp?set=recent&gallery=1&cmd=display&layout_id=1302777

Oh, and I wanted to let those of you who inquired know, Mister M really liked my Valentines pictures. He asked me exactly what I thought he would. "When did you do THESE?" I was just glad to get one of those "smiles" from him. He was very impressed. And even inquired about the rest of the.

Alrighty, I think that's it for tonight. I can't wait to hear what ya'll think about the room. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll talk to you soon. Toodles!!
