liddle fwowwer

Just a liddle sumthin' for you! This flower is less than 1 x 1 inch, perfect for a sweet touch to your layout or project.

Ooops... MAJOR APOLOGY here... I was so intent on getting my product to the shop to clear up these next few days, that it was not till yesterday I realized the Grab Bag is for AUGUST and won't come out in the shoppe till this COMING monday. Please forgive me. It WILL be worth the wait!

MY SISTER IS HERE!! *little happy dance*


We're going to make salsa today, so last night we headed for our local supermarket to pick up a few last minute items on the recipe. While in the store, I decide to buy Mr. Miles some chocolate covered almonds from the bulk section. (thats his love language) I'm going 100 mph because I'm so excited being around my Sis (will have to fit in one year's visit into a 5 day (ok two 1/2 days and three full days) visit. So, ok, frankly I'm hyper.

While I'm getting the bag to fill, my sister is talking to another customer in the aisle. I whip the bag onto the spout and pull that old handle up forcefully and...

And all of a sudden all our feet are awash in a sea of chocolate nuts.

Sister turns a nice shade of fuschia from head to foot. Everyone scrambles to pick up the nuts... quickly. We are QUITE the spectacle.

The customer observes that his shopping experience, till this point, had been rather dull. This was the most exciting thing to happen that day. Glad we have fulfilled some need in his day.

I DID manage to get some nuts in the bag.

I'm not sure if Sis wants to shop with me again. Specially after we had that big fight at the till over who would pay. Prolly the staff is wondering if we will be back too. ROTFL.

Off to make salsa!

I've just COME BACK to EDIT my bloggie, because a miracle has happened... HA,HA my SPECIAL, lovely friend AmyW is NO LONGER AWOL... *giggle* she JUST commented here AND posted too AND has a sweet little kit for YOU! Better run over there right away cuz who knows meybe we won't see her for the next six weeks hay? Her kit is in celebration of her Dadoo's Birthday. Just click HERE to be transported!

By the way, my dear friend Renae has made her first kit - its BEAUTIFUL, and she's giving it away, in bits - you can scoop her 'first bit' at her blog by clicking HERE.

Also, blogger Melanie is a WONDER at making word art - something I can boldly say - I SUCK at... and she had some good quotes happening right now. You can download them for yourself by clicking HERE.
