Santa was good to me…

Santa was good to me

Wanted to share with you one of the many wonderful presents I got while I was in KY. My family (my sisters and I) each draw names each year and this was my gift! You may remember a month or so back when I wished upon a star for this on my blog. I was tickled to get it in person!

And here’s a couple more of my wonderful gifts…

Monkey slippers
Monkey Slippers from William’s sister!

Got crafts? Gingerbread man
And a Got Crafts? Gingerbread Man from my niece and nephew!

Purse by my mom
And a purse made by my mom (it’s not really that yellow, just the processing my iphone program does)

YAY! I also got a lot of other great things including…
– A panini press
A metal letter punch number and letter set for jewelry
A cool blogging book (lots of inspiring post ideas)
– A new wallet
– Gift cards
– A Mickey Mouse sleepshirt from my bro
– Smell good stuff
– And other cute little things!

Still waiting on William’s big gifts. I have a couple more yet to open from him. He did get me some pink Sony headphones to watch TV while we were on the plane!

What did you get for Christmas?

Until next time Swellions!


Some random stuff in my world

Making bread cause I was craving it (it’s pumpkin and a mix, I don’t lie).

Bought some Christmas gifts tonight. I am getting my niece some beading tools, while I’m getting both my nephews some cool football ornaments for their new Christmas trees in their rooms! I still have a few more things to get for the little munchkins!

Oh, I met a new guy named Brian at the WRFL station who picked up my little shopping cart I was giving away on my blog a week or so ago. He colored me a picture as a thank you. I thought that was pretty swell. My radio gig went well. I had fun chatting it up with Mick! I tried to play off of his little quips. I wasn’t nervous at all!

I’ve been meaning to share this great find that I got at Street Scene a few months back. Check it out…it’s an interchangeable purse from the 80’s. Totally cool. I really need to start losing it. I love how the one has an owl with H.H.H. on it. It instantly reminded me of Homer Hillis at HHH Enterprises! It came with like 10 changeable color bag attachments.

I’m still diligently beading away for the holidays and Tasha and Marty’s wedding. Finishing up on the bridesmaid jewelry that we are going to wear 🙂
I make such a mess! Beads and tools everywhere!

Hope everyone is having a great end to their work week! Until next time Swellions!


P.S. Why do I always spell niece wrong? You would think I would know by now how to spell it, but it’s always wrong! Some things I guess you never learn! Maybe now that I’ve done this “Very special P.S. message”, I will remember!

My wishlist


Don’t you hate the holiday question when people say, “What do you want for Christmas?” I seriously am always stumped when people ask me it. I tried once putting some items on Wishlist, but if they’re not on Amazon, the task of pasting code and whatnot was was kind of daunting. It never fails that I go out and about to the mall or a store and I see all kinds of things that I want, but I’m always perplexed whenever having to answer that question. It’s an important one! It could mean the difference between socks or a cool new camera accessory.

So I do have some things I want. Some are obtainable, some are less. What do you really want this holiday?

Here’s ten things on my wish list:

1) lightweight camera tripod
2) close-up lens attachments for my camera
3) Tickets to see Britney Spears in concert (I’m not joking either)
4) Itunes gift card
5) That thing called the Gerbil/Weasel/I don’t know…it picks stuff up in small spaces you can’t get too. I told my sis this and she told me that she would NOT get this for me.
6)a small travel on popout luggage case
7)Really good jewelry tools (pliers, cutters, etc)
8) a new queen-sized bed
9) a new, soft Murray State sweatshirt (my alma mater)
10) a gumball machine

OK, so even though I want a few of these things, I want them eventually, rather than now. I don’t really have the room for a gumball machine really, but I’ve always wanted one.

This is actually a really good blog post idea, cause now I can just send them this link. Go me!

Hope you have a great night Swellions!
