I am soooo not worthy....

Kim at TCB made me cry Friday when she featured me as "Today's Creative Blog"...and yes of course I'm late in posting because I've been working all weekend...but wow, I can't begin to tell you how special it made me feel! Especially with all the craziness in my life lately and the fact that I've been a total blog slacker lately! If you've never been there you have to go check out her blog, I've had a link to her over there on the right forever. She's part of what inspired me to start blogging in the first place. She features a new "creative blogger" every day (or so), she's very creative herself, a mom, a fitness instructor...the list keeps going. So stop by and see her when you have time.


Recieved:Carolyn, Kelly, Pat, Robin, Judy, Lisa, Kylie, Kathryn, Rita, Christi, Bea and mine are done

Need:Dianna, Deanna, and Casii
Lesli dropped out guys, sorry, she got super busy.
Cassii sent hers once and for some reason they haven't gotten here yet, but lets all cross our fingers and maybe they'll show up in the next day or two...sorry Casii

Everyone did such a fabulous job with the cards!!

I've been terrible about updating here, I had such a good routine going, but things have gone so wonky. I am really better and thanks again so much for being such great friends!
I've not been creating very much lately, I've been so busy with work and stuff I've been making for classes that it hasn't left a lot of extra time for my own stuff, I'm hoping I can spend some time today getting my Deck cards, Mother's Day stuff and maybe a few other things done.
I've started a new job at a nursing home, which I think I'm really going to like once I get used to it, and I'm still having a great time in Heaven at the store. I had to get back to work at a nursing job to help pay for this indiscretion
yeah, I bought a new (used) Dodge Dakota...I always wanted a truck...and ok I so had no intentions of doing it, but there we were, at the dealership getting something done to Rob's car, and there "he" was all shiny and pretty and all "look at me I'll make you look like a badass" and I was now all I need is a pair of those swinging testicles to hang from the trailor hitch and I'm set........needless to say the boys are totally stoked about it the first night we had it we ate dinner in the back....don't worry though, the neighbors already think we're nuts...(right Pat?) "He" needs a name what do you think? I was going to call him Thor....

Before I forget...the new issue of OhScrap is out and I have a sketch AND a video feature...I'm new to video's so keep that in mind...I also sounded terrible because I was still pretty sick when I did it...but anyway go check it out!! If you're not subscribed already you can do so by emailing

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!!

Gratitude:...Yeah so out of touch on this

1. my health...won't be taking it for granted anymore

2.beautiful weather...FINALLY

3. even though we're crazy busy, I'm blessed to have more jobs than I know what to do with especially right now

4. my truck

5. OF Course!! Being a feature at TCB...THANKS again Kim....


Teri in CO said...

Kelly said...

Amy my girl, I've missed your blog!! YAY on the truck. I'm sure the boys will love having one too. Getting a new vehicle is always fun. I'm glad you are liking your new nursing job and are back to good health. Don't be a stranger!!

Angel Gurl said...

congrat's Amy great job.

Carolyn said...

Yippee! She's Alive! kidding with you...just missed seeing you on the blog-but happy to hear that you are okay and have just been busy, just something we all run into from time to time. Okay a lot around here, it Spring sports here, and this week games start. Oh yippee! LOL

Congrats on the feature, very cool! Also on the new nursing gig & new truck!

RobinDiane said...

Congrats on the new truck and the new job. Hope the job goes well for you. Congrats on being featured on Todays Creative Blog. You go girl. I checked out the video from the OScrap issue. Great job!!!

Kylie in Warsaw said...

Cute "new" truck! And I totally vote for Thor:).

Christi Snow said...

Thor, I like it! LOL!!

Once upon a time, I too was a truck girl...for 2 years I got to drive my red baby...she was a F-250 CrewCab, 4WD, Diesel giant and I loved her, but then the Air Force decided that we needed to go to England where she would have taken up two lanes of any road so I had to sell her. :( But let me tell you that thing was a guy-magnet. I have NEVER had so many guys talk to me in parking lots as I did in those 2 years. :D

Kathy said...

CONGRATULATIONS girlie! How cool to be featured on TCB!

YAY! You bought a truck! We LOVE our truck! I don't know how we ever lived without one before.

I cracked up when I read about you eating dinner in the back of it! LOL!

Casii said...

Congratulations on TCB! That is Amazing!
New ATCs will be going postal soon (shaking fist at poor, unsuspecting mail lady).

Whoa, wowser truck. I like Thor. It inspires awe and respect, eh?

Dianna said...

Um yeah...I must have the same mail lady that Casii does........
I think she said that they would be there on Wed. (as I was thumping her on the head....)

Congrats on your TCB feature*!* You deserve it~and it's just the thing to get you back to feeling like yourself.
Now, I'm off to watch someone's video debut......

Truck name?
I vote for Slagathor...still BA, but with a little more attitude.

hey there, I'm behind on everything due to my Mother's accident. Do I owe you anything on this one? Please let me know if I signed up? I don't remember?


Zoe said...

i just saw her post today and was swinging by to congratulate you! she always picks amazing blogs!!!

Judy said...

I've missed your blog. Glad to know that you are well-just very busy. You'll love your truck. I drive one and absolutely love it. When I got mine, my co-workers couldn't believe that I had traded in a car for a truck!

Judy said...

Hi Amy
