Pie Request

Is it too much to ask for someone, anyone to throw a pie in my face? I have been telling people for years, actually begging people to do it, but they refuse. They think I'm gonna get mad and hold it against them. This request is on my "Bucket List"...right up there with going to China's Great Wall, which btw, no one will go with me there either. Is it so hard to understand why I would want this?
I'm a rational person and clearly I have thought it out, but NO ONE has the nerve to do it.....
except Ellen....Ellen DeGeneres.

Yup, today I sent her an email telling her my woe is me story and asking her if she would do the honors of throwing a pie in my face. Come's not like my husband is out of work and our car is on 3 wheels and we need a new house......

I just need a pie and someone with pretty good aim. I hope she answers me...I'm Just Sayin'

Lots of Purpose

Just a glimpse of some of my new creations

Somehow, whether I plan it or not, a theme pops up in my head as I'm creating...besides Spring and Alice in Wonderland....Birds, yup, birds and mind you, they're alright, just not my favorite....

Candlestick and bird plate make a wonderful cake platter or serving dish

Prayer candles with a chic twist

I've altered Cigar boxes in an "Alice" theme...Queen of Hearts

and Alice herself

and lastly and most enjoyable.....Vintage Sheet Music Feathers...

This coming up Monday, my bestest buddy Brenda (say that 5 times) will be coming over and helping me set up my Etsy Shoppe. It's not like I'm gonna jump right in and start selling stuff right off the bat cuz I don't work like that. I have to think on it, drink on it and most importantly....sleep on it. But I's gonna happen.....I'm Just Sayin'

That's Love

While standing in line at the check out at the market, I overheard two girls in front of me talking about what their plans were for Valentines night. Apparently they were going on a double date with their prospective love interests and left the details and plans up to them as to where and what time....

Cell phones rings and one of the girls is carrying on a conversation and hangs up. She then tells the other girl what restaurant and what time these guys will be over to pick them up......9:00pm.

9:00? Really? There is no way I could eat dinner at 9:00 due to indigestion and at that time of night the dinner dishes are washed , Eric has worked on the computer, I have folded the laundry and put it away, watched a little TV, taken a shower, put on my PJ's and sat on the couch either holding hands with Eric or if he's watching a program I don't like....then I'M on the computer engulfed in Pinterest. He will then kiss me goodnight and go upstairs and fall asleep while reading a book and I will be crafting or roaming the house till about midnight

Now that's love....I'm just sayin'
