Just some random rambling's...

As I sit here thinking it is still morning and looking at the clock only to notice that it is officially afternoon I am writing this post.  I'm sorry for the lack of posting lately, but life's been in the way.  First of all hubby's hours were switched from day's on 1st shift to night's on 2nd shift.  I am not a night person.  I like to go to bed early, well not actually early ~ between 10 and 11:00 pm and maybe read for a while.  With hubby coming home just before 3:00 am is really putting a cramp in my style.  I try really hard to stay up and wait for him but the last hour or so is too hard.  Not last night though thanks to little Ms. Danielle.  She got me hooked on that show Hoarders and I guess there was a marathon yesterday because when Ricky came home I was sitting on the couch watching it.  I can not believe how people can let that happen to themselves, but I know that it is a sickness.

And then another thing happened, I've been picked for jury duty.  It's something that I've always wanted to do ~ but is there ever a "good" time for it?  Yes, I know it is my civic duty.  Other than having to juggle everyones work schedules with the car I am looking forward to it.

I have some other news too!  I won blog candy!  I was shocked when I received the email.  Me, a winner of blog candy!!  The blog candy that I listed on my last post from Vicki at Stamp Smiles - I won it!!  Woo-Hoo!!  Thank you once again Vicki, you made my day (week, month.....)!

I have also received an award from two separate people.  Gale from Dreams on the Coast and Barbara from Barbara's World of Whimcee's ~ thank you both ~ You are both so kind. 
So now it is my turn to nominate others who have inspired me...
  1. Keersten over at The Purple Palace.  She is one who has inspired me for years with her creativity.  I can honestly say that I've kept just about every card that she's ever sent to me ~ she is a talent.
  2. Von over at Messy Me.  Her style is so different from mine that it just interests me.  I've had the pleasure to swap cards & ATC's with her in the past and I can say that I've been one happy recipient.
  3. Beth over at Blooming Where I'm Planted.  I was lucky enough to meet Beth a year or so ago at a gathering we attended from SCS.  She is such a talented paper crafter - one who I like to CASE every now and again. 
  4. Barbara over at Foster House Design.  I found her thru the Paper Wings site, her being a fellow TAC Angel.  Her creations are AMAZING!  And she is a fellow lover of anything Halloween Ü
  5. Nicola over at Gorillamama Greats.  Nic is another wonderful lady who I've had the pleasure to swap with.  Not only does she make wonderful cards but her blog is also filled with other crafty items too!
There is so many to mention that I have not - and I am sorry but this post is already very long!  If I've been to your site and left a comment it is because I love your work and you've inspired me in one way or another so please consider yourself a part of this award.  There is so many people to mention, but just not enough time. 

I hope to be back a little later with a post of something that I've created, so please come back. 

Have a super great day!

Hi, Joani!
I saw that you had won that blog candy! COOL, huh? Good for you!

I watched some of that Hoarders last night also. I see how that can happen....'there but for the grace of God go I...'
Dang Clearance Rack is my downfall! I have so much DSP now! hehehe

Maybe you can get a lil nap in today! Naps are under-rated! *U*

Hi Joani! Congrats on your award. I've peeked around your blog and your cards are adorable! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for your wonderful comments. You're in Georgetown, I lived right up the road from you in Paris. :) I moved out to Reno probably before you were born, LOL! I've been out here for 23 years now. Anyway, thanks again for being so sweet!
hugs, Sharon

ps...I'm a hoarders fan too. One of the ones last night (I think she was a hair stylist) was very extreme and almost made me gag!!
hugs, Sharon

Hi Joani,
I'm home again and can't tell you how much I enjoyed the workshop at your house and meeting Betty. My workshop is really impressed with your desk top calendar card so I will make some kits for our December works shop. Thanks for all the great card ideas I get from you. Wish we lived closer so we cold have more play days together.
