.....I decided there could NOT be a single thing in the jam packed, crazy people pushing and shoving stores that I had to have or needed to buy today, the biggest shopping day of the year. Not a single thing.
I made a promise to myself that I would NOT do the shopping thing today and am proud to say...I kept my promise. ALERT THE MEDIA...this is a freakin' first for me.
Instead....daughter Jen (who was visiting) and I compromised, (that meaning she didn't want to do what I wanted...LOL !) which was to see 'Australia' so, we went to see 'Four Christmases'.....what a stupid choice that turned out to be.
Except for the very hilarious manger scene where I almost wet myself, I could have taken a nap through the rest of it. Vince Vaughn makes me nuts...he's so hyper. And I have no idea why an academy award actress like Reese Witherspoon took an insipid role like this one. Not to mention all the other first rate actors that have parts in this nutty movie.
Okay..I know there will be someone out there who thought it was a 4 star movie...please don't tell me who you are !
After Jen went home I finished up on a little project inspired by my friend, (writer, author, crafter), Judi Kaufmann, who suggested using Claudines sticky back canvas with our chipboard bracelets.
I printed collage images on my Epson R1800 inkjet onto the canvas. Epson makes really good printers and this one does a beautiful job on her canvas.
I painted the 1 inch chipboard bracelet with some acrylic paint.
I peeled the backing off a cut piece of the canvas & attached it to the bracelet.
Okay.,that was the serious stuff....
Now...it's fun time again....The second "I'm MELTING" contest.
In case you don't remember how it works from last month...
1. You send me a comment on the blog
2. I randomly pick a name
3. You email me a good clear jpg of your face and I alter it and "melt" it digitally and you win a prize ! Something way cool. A surprise prize.
So...remember..you have to be a very good sport because I'm going to do some pretty weird things to you... this little contest will end on Sunday at 9 AM EST...so...just comment here and we'll be on our way.
Here's an example of what you're in for.....quit laughing...this could be YOU !
Is there a good sport out there ??!!
