Where does the time go?

Holy moly its been almost half a month since I have blogged.....where have I been? Oh i know the answer to that. PSP'n...lol I have a new addiction. PSP and scrapbooking! Oh ya and there is the other part too not feeling well, so I have been scared to turn on the torch in case the fumes made my sinus infection worse, and not really having a whole lot of energy to create. Got to get out of this funk and over this junk!

So anyhoo thought I would share a few things I have made over the last 2 weeks of playing on the computer. Just some siggie tags with some really great freebie scrapbook papers and elements. Still getting the hang of it but I sure have been trying, there are sooooo many things you can do with Paint Shop Pro and animation, its just mind~boggling trying to learn it all..lol Of course the 1st one is dedicated to another addiction:


And a cute sassy one for Valentines day:

I am also adding a slideshow at the bottom of my blog with most of the siggies I have made in the last few weeks if ya care to check them out too.

Sore fingers......

So I haven't posted in about a week or so....shame on me!! I have been working with wire for an Era Challenge on the BHV group and then decided to make a second weaved bangle...I know gluten for punishment. We are having a 3 month challenge, each month we are to make a piece of jewelry inspired by a time period within an era. Our choices for the first section of the challenge were Prehistory, Sumerian, Egyptian, or Greek. I picked the Egyptian Era for my piece, this piece is a bright shiny copper bangle with a lapis focal and rounds, and it is weaved down each side. (My weaving skills leave much to be desired...so nobody laugh)
The second one is copper and sterling silver. I oxadized it to have a deeper color and to set off the focal boro bead, which I made and was inspired to do so by the picture on the left center... Still need more practice, but I think I am getting better, or at least I can tell a big difference between the first and second one I have ever done.

So whatcha think?

Twilight or Harry Potter?

So I find myself utterly bored without anything to read lately. I have read all 4 books of the Twilight series at least twice, seen the Twilight movie and can not seem to get enough. I want more! I am a total addict! I really hope that Stephanie Meyer will finish Midnight Sun, as the partial draft was very intriguing since it is from Edwards point of view. It would be awesome if she did all 4 of the main ones from his view point. I have also read all of the outtakes posted on Meyer's website for each book, if you havn't checked them out you should. Summit Entertainment is due this week to announce if Taylor Lautner will be be cast as Jacob Black again. I sure hope he can buff up and is chosen for the second movie as it would be a disapointment if the original cast was not in the rest of them.
Now for Harry Potter ~ I have read each and every book in this series more then twice, and seen all the movies that are out several times...lol At one time you could of called me obsessed as I would watch the movies and read the books at the same time. I can't wait for the new movie to be realeased.

Here is the link to the Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Price:


Next, I am going to start on the P C Cast series, House of Night as soon as they are delivered..lol I have read one of her books, Goddess of the Light and it was very interesting. As you can tell I lean toward mystical type books and movies.

Which movie/book series do you prefer?
