its the first of the month.

Wow, September is here and I love it! Fall is a very busy time of year for us, three birthdays, trips, birthday parties and of course fall activities. I love fall!! :) I love the beautiful weather, fall clothes, fall foliage and festivals. Yesterday was the first, so a new jack went up! My pick this time around, love Christina's art!
jack 36

I am happy that fall tv is back as well. We watched Gossip Girl last night, it was good! I am not going to give away any spoilers, but the season is going to be a good one! I have a fun giveaway from All Moments Remembered for you!!! Love the soft colors in this kit (Sept), please leave me a fun comment about yourself for a chance to win by Wednesday 8pm EST! I will post the winner on Thursday.

I am off to get my little ones ready for school! Have a great week!

  1. Great choice for the jack!
    A fun comment about me...I have always wondered why I wasn't a lucky person. Take for instance when I was 13, my parents played the lottery. They played all of our ages as numbers. They won 5 numbers...it came up 12 instead of 13. They missed by one number with my age! I love to win too, so it makes it that much more trying when I don't win! hahaha Oh by the way. The payout for 5 numbers was 1300.00. My folks got a microwave(it was the first few years they came out and they were over a thousand dollars then!).
    Have a great day!

    Hi,

    Love your blog and the inspiration you give me.

    Something fun about me - when I'm in a weird playful sort of mood, I like to talk in foreign accents - my son loves the Scottish grandma type one - "you wee young laddie, if you don't eat your tea it will be haggis for ye".

  3. Good morning Vee, and thanks for the blog giveaway offer! Something fun about me is that I used to be famous (in my family) for designing & making halloween costumes every year for my neices & nephews ... my proudest accomplishment was Medusa for my 8 yr old neice, complete with a turban with dozens of rubber snakes sewn on, LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Thanks so much for such an awesome RAK! A fun comment about myself...Ummmm. I am currently a SAHM, but in my previous life (1 year ago) I was a Child Life Specialist. I helped children and their families cope with the stressful experience of being in the hospital through procedure preparation, distraction, and normal "kid" activities.

  5. Fun blog. I so love Burn Notice. I was up late last night watching it for the second time! My son and husband love Heros and Lost! You can not believe what a fan I am of SUV. I just don't get the time to watch tv as much. I think our family tv time would mesh with yours! LOL

  7. Hi Vee! I'm Timi. A fun comment about me? Well, let me think...I was a SCRAPBOOK in one of the Halloween Parties I attended. I actually made a very big scrapbook page to cover my body. I did it for the love of scrapbooking. I also spent my clothing allowance buying scrapbook stuff! LOL!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

I'm not sure if anyone thinks this is fun except my kids, but I love to make up silly songs to sing to them about everything....from picking up their room to getting homework done to names of people in our family.

    Cool blog. Thanks for your willing to share such a cool prize. I don't have the chance yet to subscribe to the AMR kit club yet, so really hoping that I will get lucky and be able to enjoy this kit.
    Something fun about me...well, don't know if it's so fun, but I am an organizational freak who's a rebel at heart. DH says I need a t-shirt that says I love organized chaos. LOL! So I guess the fun lies in the fact that it's a great teaser for everyone else. Oh, how we learn to laugh at ourselves.
    Thanks again for the chance to win great give away.
    And PS- your's is the first ever blog I've subscribed to. Look forward to reading your blog often. Pretty neat site.
    Good luck to all.

  17. Beautiful colors--thanks for the opportunity to win! Something about me: I am probably the only person on the planet that gets queasy watching The Wizard of Oz. But it's not because of the witch or the flying monkeys; it's because of the voices/singing of the munchkins!

  23. Love reading your blog, seeing your creations, and today reading all the comments with fun things about each person.

  26. I thought of you last night when I got all settled in to watch One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl was ending. (dude, that boy could not say I love you, that was rough!) One Tree Hill is my embarassing guilty tv pleasure!! LOL! (Look at my facebook and see how that old micah tried to get me!) I told Karla that we are going to be wanting a book binding lesson when we come crash her for a visit! Seriously, lets look at some dates this fall... hmmmm... wonder if she minds me inviting us for a visit? LOL. :)

    Something fun about me. Well, I love adventure, and used to do as much as I could with friends. We used to sometimes get in a car and start driving. Sometimes we'd have no destination in mind.I don't do this as much now that I have a family, but still enjoy even the little day trips we take.

  36. Hi Vee! I love your blog and your fun funky style. What a fun giveaway, you're the sweetest!

    A little about me:

    I'm very kooky and off the wall. I'm a jokester and I'm really, really sarcastic. I'm trying to think of a fun fact... um, I like ketchup on my tacos. I know, gross huh? I like it on my scrambled eggs too. eww... i know.

    Also, I love the color of the inside of avacados... my bedroom is painted that color even.

    :) Have a happy Tuesday!!

    xoxo,
    Aimee

  37. What an awesome giveaway - these are fabulous kits!

    Something fun about me.. well, my dh would say there isn't anything because I have no sense of humor.

    Something different about me though _ have an 85 Chevy silverado with a chrome engine and is the envy of all my dh's mechanically inclined friends. (who he loves to tell "it's my wife's truck")

  38. Oh boy... something fun about me... well... my parents were on Kelly and Company a few years ago. (You know, a few being ten or fifteen!) Anyways, they had an episode for a scavenger hunt. One of the things on the list was to scare a person and get it on tape. Sweet innocent me was the victim.

    My mom told me to go shower, about ten minutes later, she whipped the shower curtain open and scared the daylights out of me!

    There were SEVERAL people who entered this competition. However they AIRED, on NATIONAL TELEVISION me... naked... in the shower...

    A few years later while at a friends house, we were watching something like "funniest home videos"... and there it was, again. The video of me being scared in the shower.

    I was so humiliated. On the tape you can hear the audience say: "AW!"

    I still have the tape from the show! Maybe one day I'll show it to my kids, and tell them to be thankful I have not done that to them!!

  39. Love the jack! Fall is my favorite too. Nothing like getting to wear big sweaters to cover all my jiggly bits! :D

    Thanks for giving away a kit-how fun!!!

    Something interesting about me-I have hiccups all the time. Not just normal, benign hiccups, but the kind that make one sound like they just left a local pub after being there all night, LOL. I teach HS English, and the kids think it's the funniest thing, haha.

  45. That's a pretty kit. I love the colors.

    Something fun about me...ummm...I have to sleep with my neck covered. It all stems from my parents letting me watch a vampire movie when I was 4 or 5. I slept with my neck covered so the vampires wouldn't get me. And it just got be be a habit. So even though I'm almost 34, I can't sleep with an uncovered neck.

    Love your work and the awesome RAK!

    I make funny voices at home (well, a couple of times it had slipped my mind and I've done at work -- Yeah! got weird looks from the "normal" people, LOL).

    I also get ridiculously scared when I see mice. I'm the type that jumps on chairs and starts screaming... some people find that funny :-| (LOL)

    Fun fact about me... Years ago when my daughter & son were in high school marching band. My husband & I chaperoned a bus trip from CA to British Columbia, Canada. We were in the bus 24 hours.

I guess we were well liked. :-) Thanks for the opportunity to win the beautiful kit.
