I just realized I've been so busy I haven't had time to update my blog recently. Everything is fine. I trust you all had a good Earth Day yesterday and did something to better our environment. You can read my Earth Day poem over on AC.
I have a question for you all. My granddaughter would like to change the color of her bedroom. Bobbie says she wants hot pink walls. We've agreed no to paint her walls hot pink but to compromise. The walls will be a pale pink with one contrasting wall in hot pink. Then she can use hot pink decorations on the pale pink walls. I found some wonderful big paper napkins in the perfect shade of hot pink and I had a brainstorm. What if we "wall paper" the wall with the hot pink napkins? Would it work? There would be some seams yes, but that would just add texture to the wall. Then I thought of a dilemma. What glue to use? So this is my question to all you artistic and crafty people out there. Woulds this work and what type of glue would I use? I had thought maybe modpodge, hmmmm.......
What do you think?

My fun wig from this past Halloween. She loved this look.
Buy wigs when they go on sale after halloween. I paid 1.00 for this one. These wigs are so much fun to play with and Bobbie is such a good sport.
My tribal head gear. I never let them touch it. (I'm a member of the tribe of the Golden Eagle in Boy Scouts.) Don't you just love that look on her face?! I do!!
Two of my favorite people.
Happy Easter Everyone!!!

Yesterday was my birthday and I had surprise phone calls and surprise gifts from many. Hubby took me to supper at the IHOP that just opened here. Good food and good atmosphere, we'll go back, next time for breakfast.
I've joined an art swap and have been working on the "painting" I am swapping. It's my first real swap so I want it to be really nice. I just feel bad that I didn't get anything posted here about it before the entry deadline. I promise to do better next time. The Spring theme was easy and I even drew out something to create, however I was having trouble deciding on the medium. I finally decided and so far it really isn't looking anything like the drawing. I like what I'm creating though and how it is turning out so far. I just hope my swap partner will like it. I've really enjoyed the 6'oclock stitch blog and just wish I could remember who sent me her way so I could thank her (or him).
Oh, and since April is National Poetry Month I've been doing poetry challenges over at Associated Content. I've done two so far and would love it if you'd take a peek.
Just click on Chocolate and Remember Those 80's Shows to read.
That's about it. I hope you all have been having a great week so far. Blessings to you all until next time. (I think I'll do some blog browsing this evening, I miss you guys.)

Bestowed upon us by none other than "Distracted By Shiny Objects" over at the A Tiding of Magpies blog.
The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken - excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all...
Now I am certain that the fact that I am a fan of zombie movies, as is Bobbie, and the fact that I watched the movie "The Land of the Dead" with my husband this evening had nothing to do with this award. Or did it! So as not to incur the wrath of the zombie chickens I too shall choose to pass on this amazing award to 5 unsuspecting souls. Who shall it be? Let's see.....
2. Misty Mawn
3. Lori at elvie studio
4. Diane at Duda Daze
And of course
5. Marilyn at As Seen Through My Eyes
All 5 of these wonderful bloggers and so many more have laid words of wisdom upon my heart these past months and I just couldn't think of any better way to say Thank You.
And now it's their turn....
Who will they honor with the??? :-)
Hugs and Good Night,
