Char's Crafty Comeback

Apparently you aren't above some criminal corruption yourself Kate. That was a chancy, cold-blooded move my courageous friend. Too bad you were not clever enough to come across your cherished charm bracelet in the ever changing convenient nooks and crannies I have contrived.

Check it out.

I checked out the message from Saucy and comprehend your concern. Medication would be celebrated in my complex condition. I will accept this in the form of cupcakes and charms. Or the bracelet gets chopped.

Kate the Charm Crimebuster

The boys and I are cavorting {somewhat criminally} this cheery Wednesday morning. We are trying to catch up with Char the corrupt criminal who craves charms and cupcakes. Our caper begins cleverly. Are we covert enough to catch this crusader?

The crude credit card method coaxes us into Char's castle.
Confronted by Chloe! Char's cruel {possibly contaminated} cannibal cohort.
We conjure our calm and courteously continue on our way. Can we catch her?

Curses! She's escaped!

We were not covert enough to catch Char and deal her a copious amount of consequences...this time. This corruption shall not continue. We will conquer this charismatic criminal. Stay tuned.

Ooooo, I hope Kate is ok with this!

This is Char. No last name needed as I don't wish to incriminate myself further. As you can see, Kate and I have been friends, oh, forever. And for most of those years I thought she was crazy. She bakes, she scrapbooks, she tells me all about her crafty friends. I can appreciate the work but think WHY? I am on Weight Watchers and *shouldn't* eat cupcakes and I don't like to glue things. Kate makes me scrappy stuff so I don't have to. But I DO love holidays. And all the Martha-ness that goes with them. So I went a little out of my head (probably due to the lack of sugar) when I saw the "Saucy" charm bracelets and cupcakes. I borrowed said charm bracelet in a Halloween decorating frenzy that left me with a crippling injury(I have had my decorations up for 3 weeks already). Channeling Martha herself, I was precariously perched on a dining room chair reaching high above my head to hang autumn leaves in my entrance when the chair leg slipped off the step and I pitched down the stairs a$$-first. Don't worry, the large bannister post at the bottom broke my fall. No seasonal pun intended there, believe me. It just goes to show what a diehard Halloween decorator I am and mark my words I did not learn my lesson as I will be on the same chair the day after Halloween putting up my Christmas decorations. Sprained toe (which required stitches they couldn't give me), crutches, huge scrape and bruise to match on my back, sore hip, leg bruises, and ego damage not withstanding. So Saucy, you have now offically met the BIGGEST decoration fan out there and I NEEEEEEEED one of your bracelets. Taking Kate's blog hostage was my moment of temporary insanity. As Kate said, everyone needs a little Sauciness in their life. Hope her husband doesn't arrest me for this one. xox

The person who stole my gorgeous charm bracelet out from under my nose. Oh, you know who you are. I used to feed your fish and THIS is how you repay me? I know what you look like in the morning lady and I am NOT afraid to reveal those details right here on my blog. Everyone needs a little Sauciness in their life but stealing it is NOT the way. You need to turn yourself in before this gets ugly.

Semi-Charmed Life

Lurrve me some charms. I like little things. They are so...well...little. And that makes me happy. Spent some time with some FAB women today making these FAB Halloween charm bracelets. We are all such overachievers...there are more then 12 charms. Oh was it a blast.
Seriously, no idea why this one is sideways. I didn't even take the photo sideways. Oh well, thanks Blogger.So all puns aside, I do lead a semi-charmed kind of life. I have no idea what Third Eye Blind was thinking when they wrote the song. I have no idea what it is about. (I hope nothing weird). But I love my life...with the good, the bad and the ugly. Semi-charmed. There are a lot of things going on in the world that I don't like or understand. Tear worthy and heartbreaking. But they make me appreciate my friends, my family, my passions that much more. Taking the time to bond with good friends and new friends is chocolate for my soul. Thanks ladies. xo

Wedding Hangover

No, I am not a drinker but the wedding hangover is there. My baby sis is now a Mrs. And boy did we do it in style. I really, really wanted to put a photo on here but didn't want to infringe on the photographer at all so here is the shameless plug for BOB MICHAYLUIK. He made me blush with every second comment but the man knows what he is doing, let me tell ya. He can turn a regular wedding party into a group of supermodels. I can not WAIT to see the rest of the pictures.

Everyone had a FAB time and my sis looked gorgeous. We rocked that wedding party gig. Stay tuned this week for some scrapbook goodness as I think I am going to jump right in to some 6x12. Check out Leica's blog for some inspiration today.

Just Art

My baby sis is getting married this weekend...hence the MIA in blogland. Who reads this blog anyway? Well, regardless of my so-called fan base it's a great record of life, love and art. Here is a layout I did a bit ago but I am SO in love with it. And I thought I would add it to Jennifer Johner's challenge over at KI Memories. You should check it out, the girl oozes talent. And keeping with the quaintness of our province, my sis actually graduated with her. Just goes to show that us small town chicas are a force to be reckoned with.
