Kids R' Great!

The other night, I was lying down with the daughter. She was fidgeting, using her talking "Oobi" hand, having a delightful conversation with her stuffed animal & telling me she wasn't tired. I knew she was.

I began to tell her it was time for bed & she needed her sleep. After all my talking, she still claimed she wasn't tired. I rested my head gently on my pillow and with my eyes closed, I thought I might apply a tactic that has worked for me in other situations. I told her that "whoever falls asleep first, wins!". A few seconds later, she chuckled and said "are you playing a game?".

She won the "game". She fell asleep so fast after that! Funny how that stuff can be so successful sometimes & fall completely flat other times. Now, when she goes down for a nap or to bed, she brings up the game. She's been winning a lot lately. ;)

Another funny Princess Fluffyfart thing - Tuesday, Dock rented movies. He brought home Wall*E. Our wonderful little girl acted as if she was uninterested with a hidey smirk on her face. A few moments later, she told her daddy:

"If you brought home Kung Fu Panda, I would say I wanted Wall*E. If you brought home Wall*E, I would say I wanted Kung Fu Panda. I wanted Kung Fu Panda."

I'm thinking I'm nearing

A time when I might actually get back to posting every freaking, stinking day! At least 5 days a week, anyhow.

I am busy with blogs for the time being, plus, I spent the last couple of days putting together a supply order so I can make more jewelry! It's going to be incredible what's in store! I have loads of cool components coming, not to mention a fabulous giveaway in December.

I'm also getting ready to participate in our town's Christmas Open House. It's town wide - great for exposure! I'm organizing & establishing myself for Jewelry parties, too. Hectic times, for sure. Hopefully, it's all for good and everyone comes out of it happy & satisfied!

I still miss you all & can't wait to visit more of you - I've been stealing visits when I have a free few minutes.

Once I start making more jewelry, I will be posting pictures galore! I'm so excited - you have no idea!

I know! Somebody KICK me!

I has been waaaaay too long. I have been uber busy, not to mention the last 2 days dealing with more computer meltdown stuff. YAY!....not!

Anyhow - tomorrow we have plans to visit the inlaws (just me & the kids, Dock never goes & they're HIS parents) , so that means I probably won't be blogging again tomorrow. I'll be back around again soon! I miss you all!

Finally! Perfect Match belongs to....

Karol! Awesome! Karol is a fab lady (fun & funny & super sweet) & so deserves this beautiful set! I am so glad you won one of the auctions because you were in on every one! It really is a beautiful thing - having you all be a part of this, my first charity auction! Maybe next year, the turn out will be bigger & the jewelry will be even better (the "jewelry better" part will be for sure - I have big ideas!)!

Karol's auction win brings us to a grand total of
$140 donation (I rounded up from $138.23), that's better than I imagined we could do! Whoo-hoo! I don't know how the donations are acknowledged, as I've never done it before, but once it's accepted, whatever note or info I get I'll post it here.

Karol - I will be sending you an email (I meant to do that sooner - life sometimes fouls up my plans). I also was going to send that out today - but I didn't get to the post office (and ran out of my bubble envelopes). Tomorrow it will be!

Thank you all so very much for donating for beautiful pieces of jewelry & for such an important cause!! Our little donation may bring them a tad bit closer to a cure! I love you guys!
