You've Got Mail!

The beginning of this week and the past few have been pretty rough, however the end of this one was LOVELY.

I was lucky enough to get some real mail!!
I won a challenge over at The Spark last month and got some very sweet goodies from some of the girls that run the blog.

Thank you ladies!! They are wonderful!!

Then at the tail of the week my order from the the lovely Leigh Ann at Freckled Nest and a special extra surprise from her lovely man Keith.

I adore everything!
Ok I'm off to finish a special gift, and then do some Etsy items for a big update next month.

New Craft Room Progress.

So for the weekend and a little bit of last week I have been filling up and organizing all of my craft items. 25 years worth of stuff has been stuffed into my tiny bedroom.

I have been able to reclaim the room in our house that provides as the "dumping ground" or where we hide all of our junk when company comes over.....

funny thing is the door is glass haha.

Anyway it's not done yet. I think I just buy things to I can organize it and never use it. I was told that once... I think they were right :)

Here are a few pics of the mess before and the progress.

The Mess before - It was taking over my dining room


New Simple Shelves..and a Diet Coke for good measure!

A bevy of buttons! Way more to organize.

Heidi Swapp Tape! I dont want to use it cause it looks to cute in here!

However I need to and the one I want is at the bottom...I'm now procrastinating.

Also I found out on Friday that Ikea no longer makes this jar...they have one sorta the same but it's frosted really what is the point?

These pictures are pretty vauge. The room is looking spectacular! I didn't want to give it all away at once.

Somebody Needs A Nap!

Oh goodness...
So today I proceeded to sleep in until 5:00pm in the afternoon. Seemed like a really good idea until I woke up and realized I kinda wasted my entire day.
It's now 5:14 am, and I have not gone to sleep. I have to be at work for 6:30.
This was a really bad idea haha.
Have you ever fallen asleep sitting; and somehow your head bobs and you wake yourself up? Or your head tilts back and your mouth just magically opens and you sit there...
Then you eventually wake up and think "oh man" I hope nobody saw me!
This will be me at my office today. It's happened before..and I assure you someone is bound to notice me today crap!!
However I did make this cute treasury this morning...

Also this is a text I got a few days back from a friend of mine when it was literally raining so bad I drove up a street, and it was like a full on amazon waterfall. I had to pull over. It was rediculous.

SO! The sun is coming up..and my alarm just went off.
Well no hitting the snooze button this morning I'm already up....still.
Today might be bad..haha

Stampede in Calgary Has Come To An End

What a long and busy week. I fractured a rib or two, and dislocated my shoulder.
However all is back in place again; just a little sore. My doctor recommended that I go for a few drinks...but warned against riding the mechanical bull!
Incase you don't know what Stampede is
It's a two week long carnival/festival. We have bands, and a huge assortment of rides, a midway and millions of people coming from all over the world to partake in the events. We also have daily bull rides, chuckwagons and a large grandstand show with fireworks each night!
If you have ever heard of Calgary, AB Canada you most likely have seen a picture of a Cowboy. This is the only time large amounts of pictures surface so we look like we ride horses to work, live in stables and love the wild wild west haha.
I do suppose that it is better than the time someone asked if we lived in igloos and wore parkas when I went to Germany haha too cute.
Anywho I did not attend the Stampede this year, but we had our annual staff party at a bar instead. We tried our best to look the part so we busted out our Moustache bandanas...and some indie plaid. I think one person in our office wore a Cowboy hat...
I opted for my pirate belt buckle! Cause as you may not know:
"Ninjas and Pirates agree that Cowboys suck"
haha only sometimes <3
Here are a few pictures from the event

I think the Sepia makes us look a little more country, dontcha think?

.......Now where's my shotgun?

Driving to our destination, you always need some car pics!

My brother being his regular charming self...Sup ladies?!
I made like 60 chocolate and 60 Vanilla cupcakes for my staff BBQ this was from like 3:00am the night before.
mmm Savory or Sweet?!

Some of the final cuties. Mini Cupcake Burgers!

These really confused some of the guys at our office haha
The last one for good measure. Cause every girl should be a princess some of the time!
Also...I can't seem to get any pictures off of my Rebel but I went to the old bookstore today and found some gorgeous goodies! Some of which are going to be mailed out to some lovely ladies within the next few days :)
