I am stealing an idea - Link Love

I have seen this on many of the blogs I follow, not sure where it originated. Any hoo...

  1. I have been looking for flattering culottes patterns & cam e across this site, sooooo cool. If you are up to making your own clothes & enjoy vintage clothing please check out Vintage Sewing.
  2. If you know me, you know I love birds - blame mama, she got me started ;) Was putzing around on line today & through following a bunch of different links (a normal occurrence for me) ended up here. They have the cutest, quirkiest bird stuff. I am in love.
  3. One of the most awesome jewelry stores on the web - IMO - of course, having "inspired kookiness" in the title definitely is right up my alley - Eclectic Eccentricity
  4. Awesome indie the name says it all - Indie Fixx & for freebies be sure to check out their Feed Your Soul
  5. I don't think I have said it enough, but Etsy ROCKS! Best stuff on the web :)
I'll stop here for now, please enjoy & will be back later...

Okay, Okay! I stink, I know. But I am working on it. Having a blue period, need to Watch Armageddon, have a good cry & get the poison out. Just feel like I need to cry, hard & maybe can get this out of my system. At least for a while. Anyway... Finally got the pics up at Flickr & am in the process of tagging & describing & actually giving titles. But, am t i r e d & need to hit the hay, just wanted to give a shout out to let y'all know I haven't forgotten about you all. Please bear with me & hope to shake this soon.

I know, I know

Ok, I am officially a bad, bad, bad girl. I have no excuse either. Just moods & not feeling like writing. Bad. I have been having fun crafting & whatnot though. I love Swap-bot. I found it through one of the blogs I follow. I love that there is this whole community out there that is artsy & crafty & likes to share. It inspires me & having guidelines & deadlines keeps my butt from procrastinating. You pick what swaps you want to join, so you don't even have to be arty or anything, there are store bought swaps to. I love seeing what others pick. I also have a TON of picks I have to up load to Flickr. I promise (pinky swear!) it will be done this weekend.
Ivy just left for her big Girl Scout trip. One of her leaders came by to pick her up. I have made good friends with both of her GS leaders & HATE that they are both leaving this summer. The absolutely worst part of Army life is losing your friends, makes for a lot of pen pals & long distance friendships. Granted, sometimes, you end up near each other again, but not often.
One of the things I love about living here is the awesome music I find from listening to the German radio. Stuff that, maybe, is on the indie stations (such as 103.1 out of LA - listen live on-line), but not necessarily. Also, one of the blogs I follow - Meet me at Mike's (an Australian based blog) - introduces me to some cool music too. Was thinking of adding some music videos, but would be too much, hard to pick & have gone link happy today anyway. So, some new faves...

Busy Bee

Shorty, but gotta let y'all know you're in my thoughts. Have had a busy week with AFTB & FRG stuff. You know the army, we love our acronyms. AFTB - Army Family Team Building & FRG - Family Readiness Group. I have come to the conclusion that dealing with money, no matter who's is a royal pain. Good grief, the legalities are ridiculous. Sigh, need to not think about it for now. Otherwise, good week, just busy. Next week will be also & I need to find out what to do w/ my pup next weekend. We're all going on overnighter at water park thing near Berlin & I am a driver. So 1 night, 2 days. Maybe she can go, but then what. Hmmmm. Will have to see. Well, am watching Scrubs with the Peanut, will yap at y'all again another time. Till then - Be Well :)

nifty video & like the song too.

Not sure if that phrase applies to any time, but sure feels like the right description. I am in A MOOD! >:( Grr. Was finally, finally, going to get the DLA filed & get reimbursed for the move. Have everything, but when I went last week to file, found out I didn't have my finance POA (power of attorney,) with me. Had the other 5 POA's, but not the one I needed. Hmph. Ok, made plans to come back today @ 1300. Thought I knew where that stupid piece of paper was, so didn't bother with it this weekend. Looked today. Not where I thought it'd be. Spent the whole morning searching high & low. No where. The damn thing grew legs & ran away. Argh! Crud! Pooey! Grrrrrrrrr! I have looked EVERYWHERE I can think of & have just torn-up my entire first floor. I am frustrated beyond belief. So now, I need to regroup & try & figure out where it could be that I haven't looked. I am going to take a break & watch My Nieghbor Totoro & try to relax. Hopefully I'll have an epiphany & can be ok with going next week to do that paperwork. In the mean time, here is one thing I did accomplish this weekend...

I decorated the top of this cigar box using paper maosaics. Now I have a set place to keep my ATC's (Artist Trading Cards,) in progress. The finished & ones I recieve right now are out where I can see them, even though will eventually have too many to keep all out.
