Monday...Ughhhh

Yippe Skippie, It's Monday!!! The house
is quiet and of course dirty. Some friends
of mine have been telling me they
have nannies or housekeepers. I am like in AWE
of these peeps! Why didn't I ever get one!!!
Why wasn't I ever smart enough in the beginning
to even think of getting one, oh, that's right
I never had the MONEY.... LOL So, I have
no one to keep my house clean except
for me, cause if you think my kids would
wash a dish around this house, no freakin'
way, let alone put a new toilet paper on the roll
after using it up... Yeah, that is a huge pet
peeve with me!!! I swear, sometimes I would
love to take all the toilet paper and HIDE it....
just so they know how seriously mad I get
about that! But hubby says Nooooo.....
I can't win for the life of me!!!
that is when I wish I had a house keeper, I bet
she would keep the toilet paper roll stocked for me! LOL....
What a subject for the beginning of the week.
I got lots of things to share before I start tackling the
mess in this house, so I am done rambling
about TP....lol


I finished 2 of my 3 layouts....
The first one has some things from KimB's JanCU Bag.

And I used Jazzy's new word art!
Click on the bag to go to her Kim's shop, it's still on sale,
you got till Friday before the sale ends!!

Here is the other one...

It's for Jazzy's Photo-Op challenge at DSO and I used her Christmas Word Art!
If you click on this preview it will take you to Jazzy's Store.
Yeppers, her wordart is still on sale too!!


Okay, got another surprise, Beth...
who is known for her AWESOME QP's
has a new kit in her store.. If you are anything like me,
you still have photos of the fall
that need to be done, and this new kit will work wonders
on them, here is the preview:

Isn't that COOL!!! Click on the preview to check it out!

And if you stop by KimB's Blog, she has a QP of these goodies.....
but before you go, I did get Kim's CC done!
Yeahhh, I am on a roll this month.....LOL
I named it Rose Fest, the colors are right up my alley!
Here is the preview:

If you want to download it, just click on the preview,

and please, if you do, leave a thank-you, it does go
a long way and beside, I am outta of ideas and some
encouragement would help me, KWIM...LOL
Well, that should keep you all busy for a while,
time to start tackling this mess. As always
take care and stay safe!
Chow for Now!!!

This is so delicate and classy! But it is 53 MB which is so difficult to download on dial-up. Would you ever consider breaking it into two downloads for the unfortunate ones on dial-up? We would soooo appreciate it. Thank you for all you do and good day.

Oh, your preview does not do this kit justice. It is so very exquisite, love each and every piece of it. thanks for joining the challenge and sharing the kit.

Ummmm...Crops? I think our girls are related!!! Julie doenst chang the damn TP either. I once asked her why she is too lazy to do it and she replied "it was beneath her"...the little shit got grounded for that one. ROFL!!!

Have a great day!
Mwah!

Thanks so much for this beautiful part of Kims Color Challenge. I love those roses.

eilajean said...

OK, so I just sent a pic to you tat I think says it all! Love the soothing nature of this kit. Cannot wait to give it a try - OH, I forgot... still sorting pics. I did make headway. My mom visited in the summer and totally mixed up everything - so now I don't completely know what I have scanned... ARG!

Hope you are staying warm...

Maybe consider a cleaning lady about once every 2 weeks or so. When I was in school, I had someone come in like that, just to catch up the dusting and mopping - WHICH I HATE. It usually only took about 1 1/2 hours and cost ma @ 30 bucks. WELL worth it.

Love your layout of Zander. Such a sweet little boy.

Later tater!

Lucy said...

Thank you for the lovely gift!

TP is and issue around here too...and having the rolls right there on the back of the toilet doesn't make a little bit of diffience, at times the TP just ends up falling in the toilet...
just a soggy mess...

good luck with the house work...I just got half of the vacuuming done and thouhgt I needed a little break.

Again Many thanks Sweetie.

pkdoll said...

Hi GF!! Sorry I have been MIA!!! I have been soooooooo sick! UGHH! Love your color challenge kit--it's gorgeous!!! I can see you have been busy! Love the LO's--you are just sooooo talented and I love seeing what you have been doing. I did finally do a blog post and have a QP for free over there. Hope to get back to things, but it's been an uphill battle. Talk to you soon!!

Van said...

Lovely kit -thank you!

Dianna said...

You don't have boys do you? If you have boys - forget it. It's a male to trait to deny that anything is actually empty. If there's one swallow left in the OJ container they'll put it back in the fridge be cause...it's not empty. They'll leave one sheet of T.P. attached to the role because if they do that...well...it's not empty. We were just discussing that...

Maybe that's why they hate to take out the garbage soooooo much. It would mean they were emptying something.

Beth said...

LOL! You always make me smile!!! My dad, when we were kids, actually took my sisters and I aside one day... sat us down very seriously... and proceeded to give us a BIG OLD LECTURE on replacing the toilet paper!!! WAHAHAHA!!! He wanted to make sure we put it on withe paper coming 'over the hill' too.... LOL! (the things we remember eh??) THANKS THANKS THANKS for posting the preview to my new little kit!!! You're the BESTEST OF THE BEST!

Evelyn/Ev/Evee said...

Crops, I so know what you mean about having a housekeeper! I need one full time I think, one who would do ALL the housework, go to the supermarket, cook my meals, wash up after...... so I could spend all day either at my computer or meeting my friends!

Love love love your kit for Kim's colour challenge. Thank you so much.
xxoo

Kim B said...

BWAHAHAHAHAHA- OmG- the worst is when you sit down without checking and uhum you have one little piece left- lol
Yeah she puts the loo paper there during the week- but on the weekends the boys can use a ROLL per sitting if you know what I mean- ROTF!

CROPPY- omg, I popped in to say hi and saw the CC kit here first - HOLEY SHIOOOOT girl- that kit looks out of this world! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE it- you've outdone yourself here girlfriend!
HUGS me

Sue said...

Your Colour Challenge kit is just gorgeous. As for the toilet paper, no probs, no kids, mine have flown the nest. I do niss them sometimes, but not the empty roll!

MsSweetP said...

Wow! This is beyond beautiful! Thank you very much. I just lost my father this past Sunday,my mom passed away 20 years ago. So I am sitting here trying to scrap some photo's of my Mom & Dad before the bushel of kids came along ( 8 kids ),LOL. Anyways, their wedding colors were soft pastels, so this kit is just perfect for it. Ok, time for me to get back to scrapping so I can have these printed out and ready for the funeral.
Thank You again.

WillowRaven said...

Very pretty kit - thank you very much for sharing!

SusanW said...

This is so pretty. Thank you. And I can totally relate to the TP issue. I've had shelves right beside the potty and I have a basket there now. But, alas! It is the same. They just leave it for the next person.
A couple times when I emptied it I left it to show them how it feels. Once someone actually put the new roll on. LOL

GORGOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!
TY so very much from another fellow Penna !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

RoseAddict said...

Success at last! Blogspot wasn't cooperating; 4shared, which has been working great for me all day, suddenly decided to give me fits (maybe I've worn it out); but I can be VERY determined when there are roses at stake! Thank you so much for this gorgeous kit.

TP? No problem. My daughter (an only child) had her own bathroom, so if she wanted paper, she had to put it on the roll. DH has his own bathroom. Same thing. And now that he's "paper trained" he even takes care of the powder room downstairs when necessary. I have decorative boxes sitting on the tank lid of each toilet, holding two rolls each, so it's always handy. Mine is covered in roses, of course!

txgwen said...

Peggie said...

Thank you. It's lovely.

JulieBee in Iowa said...

I love your butterflies and the delicate flowers and papers. There isn't one thing in your kit that I don't like. It's really pretty! Thank you so much!
I hear you about teenage troubles. Mine are 17 and 2 months from being 20. It's totally stressful! (huge sigh)

Sue said...

I lost your kit to my hungry EHD, so I'm glad to pick it up again. I used your rose in three layouts. This is a gorgeous kit! Thank you very much! :)
