Big Pimpin...

I recently found this website via Facebook. Bluntcards... nasty, mean, hysterically funny retro cards to share. I just love it and each one makes me laugh my ass off. Here are a few of my favorites...

They remind me of Anne Taintor stuff. Which I've loved for years. Here's some of her's -

Anne's stuff is geared more towards woman and is equally great! Click on either or both links to visit the websites. Be prepared to lose an hour or more going thru all the fun stuff! 

Now I'm going to pimp something even nearer and dearer to my heart. If you are a regular reader you know I have a daughter and she has two best friends that have been in her life since she was in middle school. Crystal and Colleen... my adopted daughters! I am a proud Ma today (actually every day but...) as I Pimp out Colleen's new Etsy storefront website. Col's so talented in many ways and she's now selling her beautiful hair barrettes and accessories on-line. 
They are bright and summery and perfect no matter what your age. They would make perfect hair clips for  bridesmaids or take away gifts for a little girl's birthday party. And they are so affordable... $4.00! I've already bought some for my nieces! 
I love how she's given them names as well. Like Coach handbags! So friggin cute! I am hoping to talk her into a Stacey LOL oooo and a Kate for the new Princess would be fabulous. Anyway, go check the website out, again, link is above, and see the whole collection. She'll be adding more as she gets them done. Ahhh I am a proud Mama! 

Pimping complete for now. Happy Hump day!

Randoms thoughts from a sleepy mind

I had sewing all weekend from my friend- no professional football stiff this time,but I think high school ball maybe. Over 800 2 inch letters that needed to be sewn on nameplates. With Easter coming this weekend and losing most of yesterday, I ended up staying up all night to finish up. I could have gone to sleep at 4ish but was afraid I wouldn't wake up to deliver the stuff so i took my time and made my delivery. Any way , the point is my mind is tired. I went to bed around 10am and I slept for 3 or so hours and am dragging now.  Not complaining... just explaining. My  ramblings may sound strange and now you'll know why...

Hoping, for those who celebrate it, that a wonderful Easter was had by all. We were blessed with 82 degree sunny weather here in SE PA and spent it at my brothers house in Ephrata. We did the egg hunt inside, (no yard) but the kids still loved it.

Being up all night, and having the tv on when I took breaks or was clipping my sewing I have come to the conclusion that the only people who are awake after 3am are people who are either 1) unemployed. 2) overweight or suffering from some sort of sexual dysfunction, 3) willing to talk to strangers on the phone that they think are really great looking when in reality we know are stay at home grandmom's filing their nails while offering titillating conversation. LOL
Seriously??? LMAO

I am finding myself getting caught up in the Royal Wedding hoopla. Not sure why - other then the fact that I watched Princess Di and Charles get married the summer after I graduated from high school (aka when I still believed in Prince Charming) and was home on maternity leave 5 years later when Fergie and Andrew got married and watched that as well. So I will be up at the butt crack of before dawn to watch  Prince William and Kate. -probably the only royal wedding where the participants are actually in love. And I am not ashamed to say that I am really looking forward to it.
I am caught up in the details... the pomp and circumstance. I want to see the dress, the flowers, the crowds. Anyone with me??
