Where the heck did April go?!

WARNING: This blog contains proof that my hair is indeed blonde, and always will be, even it doesn't show on the outside. Now you may continue :)

As I said in the title: WHERE THE HECK DID APRIL GO?? It still seems like it should be 2011 or something. Shoot, it should still be 2010 acording to my internal calender. But, I better tell it to shut up, because it's 2012. And, almost May at that. I've been  doing a bunch of crafty stuff, and thought I'd write about it. Oh, I've been trying to figure out Picasa photo editing thing too. Not working too well :( It's confusing!

 Rainbow cake=awesome~! I must make this!
 Here's where the whole blonde thing comes in:
 Cute, right? well. Yeah. Um, I didn't get it at first. I was like, "Huh? I think you're Orange Fanta Branch? What does that mean...? O_O Fanta...OHHH!" Man, I'm stupid :D

 Here's one of the things I made...a Duck Tape Wallet! It's so cool! Annnd, it's so easy to make! I made Melissa (My Sis, in case you didn't know) one too :)

 I thought I was the only one (besides my mom) who thought that! I get so mad at that part!!

One thing I'm in the middle of making! It's for Dylan's (my nephew) birthday. I'm not very far into making it, so I need to hurry up--his birthday is May 13th!

Another blonde moment :"Huh? How..? Guhluhbull...g..u...h..l..u..h..b..u..l..l....Huh?!? That's not true! OHH! WAIT!" Another "Man, i'm stupid" moment. Hey, at least I'm not alone...Melissa did the same thing! (And, she not blonde!)

Okay, so I said I would write about crafts I've been doing..well, now that I think about it, I haven't done alot...does origami count..? hehe :) Well, I made flipflops out of duck tape & cardboard...but I messed up a step & it didn't work :(( & it doesn't really count, but I made fried rice :D I took pictures & will post them tomorrow..don't have them uploaded! I've been writing alot..& I made some little pillows...and that's about it. I've been pretty busy going thru stuff & packing.

T-T-T-that's all, folks!


Countdown to October...

OK, so the picture above is from Google Images, and not one that my family has personally taken, but hopefully that will change in the near future!!

Countdown to October means that our little family of three is planning to spend this Fall making memories together in the Arizona Desert!!! We have been keeping up with many RV blogs and kind of living through them and their lives on the road. Hubby is slowly coming around! In fact, he has been dreaming of Hawaiian Shirts and camping hats, clothing that is not allowed on the dress code at his job! Love it!! I keep telling him that I'm going to "Hippie Him Up"! This may be hard to imagine, since he is a Mechanical Engineer, but I am determined! :)

We are continuing to downsize all of our possessions. This past week, we were finally able to get some of  my Daughter Melissa's belongings to her, including her heavy dresser. Hubby and my Brother, Don, also moved a bed, chest, and chair for my Sister Sherry who just moved into an apartment.

Although I have had my wheelchair around for awhile now, and have been enjoying it when I'm tired, today we've discovered that I can no longer get around on my own steam. Looks like from here out, I am wheelchair dependant--in addition to being Blind! My bright spot is concentrating on going Full-Time RVing and making lots of great memories for our family!!

Just want to give a shoutout to RV Sue and her Canine Crew. In case she reads this, our family LOVES to read your blog and hear of your adventures. And to be honest, I really hope to get to meet you someday!! To all the RV Dreamers out there, if you want to read a really great RV Travel blog, check RV Sue out! You won't be disappointed! :)

New followers, 63 pictures, and a project...

 Alright, first off: we have two new followers!! Yaaay! That makes 10!! Thank you  Lauryn, of Love Notes By Lauryn, and Roudi, of C Is For Craft!! You made my day :)
This is #1 of the 63 pictures..and no, i'm not kidding. I counted them. I've taken about 7,000 since Christmas. This is from when I first got my allowance...I made rings! And I made 10 of them (I get $10 allowance) and put them all on at once :)

Not bad for my first time making them

I still had some grass and easter eggs my friend gave me, so I took pictures...

And threw in some real eggs for fun :)

These thingies were only a dollar at Walmart! They're squishy. And awesome, too!!

My pillow...yeah, when I get bored, I take pictures of everything. And I do mean everything...including electrical plugs, vents, lamps, etc...

Aren't these little angels awesome?! I got them at a yard sale for $3!

I keep them on my *messy* bookcase,

 beside my *messy* desk,

 With everything else!
 The mixture of...
a tape measure, (I think you only call the hard ones that. I don't know what you call the softy ones...)

 and Fabric, can only mean one thing....PROJECT TIME!! I'm going to *try* to make my nephew a blanket thing...
                                                         My marker/colored pencil box
                                                          Hmm, which one would work?
This is what it's going to look like. *Ahem* Sorry, excuse me...this is what it's supossed to look like. The fact that I'M making it, plus the fact that i'm only using two colors, means that it will look nothing like that...except they both use blue :D
                                                               Gotta have music!!
                                                     My sewing  box
What it'll look like when it's done. Hmm, it's smaller than I thought. Oh well, he can use it for his stuffed animal or something.
                                                          What it looks like sewed...
                                                         Yeah, I messed got tangled...

                                         Jeez, that's alot of sewing to do....
                                          Aww, it broke... :(
Hmm. Maybe if I open this up, then put it back in there, then smoosh it....Nope. Not gonna work...
                                           I'm so great at cutting. Not even CLOSE to even...
                         Packing everything to get ready to go to Grandma's tomorrow...
                                               Rolling up my tape measure...

                                                        Hehe, I love doing this... :)
                                           Hmm, there's gotta be a use for all those scraps...
               And yes, I was working in the kitchen. Well, actually, I was at the bar, which faces the kitchen. Heh. I'm very technical...
        The other day when my niece was here, she started organizing the magnets and put them in a row...well, when  I looked up, I realized she had spelled timely! (And she doesn't know how to spell. She's only 4. It jsut worked out that way)
      Dang, it's late. (that's PM!!) I need to go to bed, especially since I've got to get up at 5 to go to Grandma's while Mom goes to the Doctor...
                                         Ever noticed the logo for Toblerone has a bear in it?
                                             What's better than a rainbow of popsicles?
                                          A whole ROW of them!! these aren't frozen though :(

       Ha! I can hold 'em all with one hand, even though it's like 100 of them!
                                                                I've got an idea!!
                                           Can you tell what this is going to be...?
 NYAN CAT!! Although, it looks more like a 2nd grader threw up...the rainbow is popsicles, the body is a poptart, (duh) the legs, tail, head, ears, and mouth were scraps of fabric (told you they were useful!!), and the eyes are jellybeans.
                                                     Oooops....I got hungry! :D
                                                   "now it's really late...better go write that blog..."

                                                              Night everyone!!
                                    (This will be posted tomorrow...i'm too tired!!)
