Sunday Sunday Sunday

Well it is now just after 6 pm. I have just finished watching the race at Talladega Speedway.... While watching i was doing a mad rush crochet marathon. I have i think 5 more purses to do. I am now taking a computer break. At about 7:15 pm I have to go pick up Becky from her friends house... Becky has had a long weekend having been away from home since Friday early evening...

We had a wonderful group of band kids from a Christian School in Alaska at our church today. The Band accompanied our church choir. They did very very well. It was wonderful to sing with such very talented students. We sang a song called "I'm Feelin' Fine".

The Things I Need

Well today I was at Wal*Mart... I went to buy some socks. Well I thought... hmmm... I need some white glue to do some heat setting with my pearl-ex colors. Then I saw the ModPodge... Hmmmm... I am thinking I need this to do some projects with the coasters I have. Then I saw something else stamping related. All the things i needed right there under one stop in the stamping isle... how fortunate for me. So I also bought some brushes for all this crafting I hope to be doing. I need to stay out of such places.

But this was a nice shopping treat after having my car state inspected, emission inspected and finding I needed to have my head light replaced. Well I hope I can put all my shopping items to use soon.

We do however have to go out of town tomorrow. We are going to meet Rachels Fiance's parents. So I will have to wait one more day to do my stamping.... SIGH!!!

Nighty Noodles

The time has come the walrus said,
to speak of many things.
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax,
of cabbages and Kings,
Of why the sea is boiling hot,
and whether pigs have wings.

Does anyone know where that came from.... can you guess???
Any way I hope everyone has a blessed night of rest. I can use all the beauty sleep I can get.....

Beautiful Flowers

These are pictures taken from inside my bus while stopped at a stop sign. (please do not think I was operating a camera while I was driving the school bus... that would be just plain stupid). This particular bus run has several miles of yards with and abundance of beautiful flowers like this. Sorry these pictures are not very good. Didn't have time to pose anything. I just thought they were beautiful. My attendant was kind enough to help me by taking the pictures.

Oh I almost forgot... American Idol is on tonight... I guess it is the 2 hour benefit show tonight... American Idol Gives Back. I hope Melinda does well.... She is my favorite to win...

I am hungery... I wonder whats for dinner. I guess thats something I have to decide myself. I am only cooking for two tonight. DH is gone bowling. It is his last bowling night of the season.

I also have to work some more on the Ghana Purses tonight. Need to be getting those done... No time to lolligag. Times a wastin'.

I Have a Headache

Oh man... I have a headache... just a dull nagging headache... at least I am not being a headache...LOL.

It was a long day today. But no bad incidents on the bus. Kids were all good. You see I have a watch frog on the bus that sits above the rear view mirror. It is usually enough to detere the younger students from missbehaving... You can close his eyes as well if you need him to sleep or something. I think he is rather cute... Some of the middle school kids I have are even afraid of him... say he is creepy...

Ok here is a picture of my dream vehicle... It is a "sweet drive"!!!!

Monday Monday

Good evening everyone. Happy Monday! Today is my least favorite of days... My bus schedule on Mondays is not my favorite... Anyway it is an early ending day so that is good.

I am posting some pictures of the cards and things we made at a stamp camp at my sister Greta's house this past Saturday. So here goes.

This card is designer paper with a cut boarder. Then an acitate sheet was stamped with black craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. While doing this card it has come to my attention that I need to get an embossing buddy.

This card is my favorite of all the cards we did. Probably because I like chocolate and it lookes like chocolate to me. I like the different ways you can combine the designer papers.

I like this one cause it is so simple. And I like the sentiment on the front. I have a lot of friends that fit into that catagory. Now it will be hard to figure out who to send it to.

This is the mothers day card we made. The first is with the slider closed and the second with it open. Sorry if you are looking at this mom cause it is for you.... I guess then it won't be a surprise.

This is the coaster album I won as a door prize. I love coaster albums. I have lots of coasters to make some of my own. Now I need to go buy a crop-a-dial. It is amazing some of the things I find out I really really "NEED" when I go to a stamp camp....

This is a card we made out of a sheet of designer paper. Then we added bookmarks to add pictures and stuff onto. I haven't put any pictures or anything in it yet. I may make anther one for a small baby album. I thought this was a great project.
Soooooo there are all my projects from this weekend. Let me know what you think.

Handbags for Ghana

Here are pictures of the purses I am making for the orphanage in Ghana. So far I have only two different styles. They are in many different colors. My daughter loves them and has already asked me to make more for her and all her friends.... Sigh... I guess I shall be quite busy in the near future.

Happy Sunday

Good Afternoon... It is now after 1 pm. I am home from church and back on the computer. My daughter has gone to a friends house for the afternoon. In just a little bit I will be back upstairs to make some lunch. I am suppose to be on a diet. I have been very lax with it the past few days. I have had no real good motivation. I plan to get back to exercising this week. Time to get back to Curves.

This afternoon I also have to get back to my crocheting. I am making some purses for my dad to take to an orphanage in Ghana. I need to get 20 purses done by May 7. So far I have 10 done so I am half way there. I will be done in plenty of time. I will post pictures later. I am sure there will be some happy girls next month. I do so love to crochet and knit. It keeps me out of trouble. (Now you want to know just how much trouble I can get myself into... don't you .... you know you do... admit it...)

I started practicing guitar last week. I havent played a guitar in about 10 years I think. I bought a guitar from Pete (BIL) thanks Pete... it felt good to play again. Altho my finger tips are quite sore.... Need to develop those calouses... Please pardon any spelling errors...

Enough babbleing on... I hope everyone is having a great day... God Bless!!

Today I got to see my grand nephew for the first time. He is such a cutie... I sure enjoyed holding him. He smiled so very very handsomely when I spoke to him. He is 6 weeks old. And he is a very handsome one if I do say so myself. Of course I am somewhat biased.

Welcome To Me...

Hello, Hello, Hello... I am really very new to this whole blog thing... But I have been told that I am computer savy enough to figure it out. So here goes....

My name is Signe. I am married to my DH Jim for almost 19 years. We have a 11 year old daughter Becky. She is at this moment packing to go miniature golfing and then for a sleep over at her friends house.

I am very much into crafting and creating. I do rubber stamping, crocheting, knitting, cross stitch, make jewelry and I will try anything once and if I like it come back and do it again.

I am also very involved in the music ministry at my church. I not only sing in the choir I also direct a small womens ensemble.
Now... for my occupation. I drive a special education school bus. I have been driving for almost 9 years. I will also be driving a motor coach bus as a relief driver for Imagination Coach Lines. I do so look forward to driving this bus. It rides like a dream..... ahhhhhh....

So I will try to keep this blog updated regularly. And hope to see lots of visitors here. Have a great day... God Bless.
