Ladies and Gentlemen...

I have arrived...at least in the bloggy blogger sense of arriving. What makes me so sure and full of myself you ask? Two things...first...scroll allllll the way down to the bottom of the page, I'll wait here.....see that huge number down there...over 10,000 visitors!! How crazy is that? So thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you lovely precious readers!! I wish I knew who all of you were...unless it is just the five of you that I do know and you just visit here a lot...either way thanks!! The second thing is not this bush...I just happen to love it and all it's springy green goodness and wanted to share it with you...the second way I know I have arrived in the world of blogging is...the other night I was having a serious but happy discussion with a friend...at the end of the conversation she asked me not to blog about what we talked about...hehehe. :) I guess all my friends and family know that everything is fair game...unless they tell me otherwise. :)
On to crafty things...here are some cute tags I am working on...I like to do things in groups...make a bunch of this, then move onto that...it's how I avoid boredom. :)
After I made some of these for my swap buddy I decided that a few might do alright in the shop...they won't all have flowers...maybe houses, birds or whatever else I can think of...
For some reason I couldn't say no to these...who knows what they will become...
And I switched out my centerpiece...here is a cheap way to switch yours out...first get an empty picture frame...I put mine on top of a brightly colored table runner but you can put yours on a place mat or right on the table...then fill in the space with like things...here I used all my white birds...and added an orchid (that I already had-you could use any small plant or vase of flowers) in a color that complimented the colors...it looks much cuter in real life...it was horrible to photograph but you get the idea. :)
And last but not least...here is a new "recipe" I tried out last night...it was actually really yummy...it's called "cheeseburger joe's" Take one pound of ground beef, brown, add half cup BBQ sauce, and 1/4c of ketchup. Pile on hamburger buns and top with cheese. I served it with oven fries and green beans. :) Easy and tasty.

Coming tomorrow...my excitement over the RETURN OF THE OFFICE!!!!!!!!!

Peace and chicken grease ya'll!!

PS---Yes I will sell the coffee bags but I will only be making them as fast as I can drink it...which is about a bag a week...so if you would like to claim one..the first already is...just contact me and let me know...I will put your name on a list. :)
Pin It!

Congratulations on the 10000 visitors! BTW, I love how you label your post DORK... If I labeled my posts with DORK, every post would be labeled that way, and the few that might not be would be labeled GEEK! :)

I'm just visiting your blog for the first time. (I came over from Tiddlywinks.) Anyway, just wanted to "hi". I'm sure I'll be reading your past posts so I can be up-to-date. It's refreshing to read a Christian blog. I love the swap idea (I'd like to be included in the next one)! I'm familiar with your Etsy shop and have added it to my favorites. :)

I can count your visitors if you want. It is really easy, you just stand at the door with one of those clicker counter things and hit it when some one walks into the house. To increase the count, I would click it when people leave too. Pets and mice too, they go in and out quite often.

Counting is my specialty: 1, 2, 3, 5, 9, eleventy eleven, 72, Acapolco, cheese doodle, 12! That is the fastest way to count from 1 to Google. Maybe that's why I need a clicker counter.

i am so happy to be your swap buddy.
congrats on 10,000 - isn't it amazing?

i like your centerpiece.

and i did do one crafty/organizey thing yesterday from your inspiration. but of course it has many more steps so it will remain unfinished like MANY other projects for awhile.

i can't wait for my coffee bag. :)
