lame blogger...ew to new #14...

i know i haven't been here at all this week. but i have a super short video for you! seriously, it's like one minute. i did it a bit ago and i'm going to let it process and load while i go run some errands.

Supplies:
Pillar candle
Vintage button (mine is from my friend Eva's box o' buttons)
Ribbon (I used some brown ribbon with the little balls on it from one of the SC kits a few months back.)

i've been very busy. i got a job and will start next week. nothing spectacular, that's for sure! but it pays. i'm working nights and weekends though, so that kind of sucks. we need the extra cash, especially with Christmas coming up very soon. also, we'd like to be able to do things instead of just sit around at home all the time. granted, it's a nice home. but still. well, of course if i'm working we won't be able to do anything anyway. but it's only temporary. the house i think would fall apart without me here picking up after 4 boys (mike, mich, owen and gomey). my dog does make messes too. only the sock kind. luckily not the poo or pee kind. that would make it not a nice home anyway...it's an endless cycle...

anywho, hope you enjoy the video. have lots of stuff to do today and i really hope to get my butt in gear and do the SYC for this week! i know. i'm sorry ladies over at SYC. it's been crazy here. i hope to get it done very soon. But, there's still some great inspiration over there, so go check it out!

later...

ETA: ok, back to load the video onto this post and lookie what i found while checking out the SC blog! it's me!!! thank you so much! how exciting to be featured on the SC blog!!!
