...about how glamorous life is as a designer!
Okay so have been working a little bit too hard lately and not eating “PROPER”. My Dr would probably smack me…yeah or what ever. It’s my life woman!!! There has been a lot of chicken nuggets (several times this week, can’t help it they are just so cute and round and they really want me to eat them) and coffee and that brown soft drink made by the devil. Not the light kind, don’t like it. My friend Chichi has started to call me Mc Nuggets and is really concerned that I (in her very loud words) –DON’T EAT SOMETHING GREEN WITH EVERY MEAL! Today I took her advice and had lunch with my lillsiss. I hade a turkey SALAD with nasty fibre pasta in it and my lillsiss had dead fish and other kind of deceased underwater creatures on rice also known as a Japanese delicates called Sushi. Any I bought a turkey SALAD to have for dinner. I just eat my SALAD in front of the computer and it was still quite boring so I took one of those cheddar cheese dipping sauces and poured over it. Made it a little bit better. And then I eat my crisps= potato= good for you, that is why they serve it to small children. And drank some clear soda, not the brown kind=clear= Good, like water but with a nicer flavour. And I eat my bag of dried fruits= Vitamins= Will make me healthy and alert.
And yes I am going bananas!!!

…about me I applying to a Design Team and making it thru to the second round. It feels good. The journey probably ends now but I am happy that I tried. Not that I don’t care if I get to be on the DT or not. If I said that I would be lying. Of course I would love too be or I wouldn’t have applied.I have seen the work of several of the others that have applied and trust me they are EXCELLENT crafters, so the chances I have to make it is to put it moderately SLIM.But that is okay. The thing that feels so good about all of this is that I put myself out there and wasn’t afraid of being rejected. And that is a really good feeling.

I just won a challenge with this layout! I didn’t believe it at first so I sent a PM to confirm that is was for real before I could really celebrate. Got an answer and yes it was true I WON!!! I know this might be silly but it really means a lot to me right now. I so needed something good coming my way.
Thank you Pescaragirl, THANK YOU!!!
I made this one the other ady and it is probably my most “clustered” layout, ever! But we are so proud of her and I wanted to get all the pictures on one page. The behind the scen, snack break, ad and a picture of the ad on the bus. WOW this is so cool!!! WTG Mie!!!

...I am supposed to “organize” my home and “stuff “ today. But it is so tiresome. I did the laundry yesterday and lots of it, and then at a week moment while picking up the laundry I was feeling like a “real house wife” and then I went overboard and decided that I will organize my home tomorrow and that tomorrow is today. But that is just not me…
Note to self: Don’t pick up the laundry just leave it (that is a kind of cleaning). Because if you do you never know where your mind might go…

There is just something about bacon. Not the actor or the painter just regular fried bacon. The way it smells and sounds while it is simmering in the pan in its own juices. There is as far as I know nothing within the food category that is not combinable with bacon. It goes well with pasta, rice, potatoes, bread and cream ahhh with cream it is absolutely fabulous. Call me Bananas but I think it would even work with bananas. Think Elvis did that? Have to Google….(Yup, yup recipe down below). I started thinking that if I could have a bacon perfume that life would be just perfect, then I realised that I was taking the whole bacon obsession to far, but there is most definitely something about bacon. I love it!!!
Recipe courtesy Peanut Butter & Co.
2 tablespoons butter, softened
8 slices white bread
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1 large, ripe banana, sliced
1/4 cup honey
12 slices bacon, Sauteed until crispy (optional)
8 slices bacon, Sauteed until crispy (not an option)
Fresh pasta, enough for 2 really big guys
1 cup of cream (light cream if you are on a diet)
1/4 teaspoon salt1/8 teaspoon pepper
Cook the pasta while you are frying the bacon. Do not baste off the fat as it accumulates in the pan. You will need it! When the pasta is done rinse of, then pour it in to the frying pan with the bacon and then add the cream. Stir until the cream is almost fully absorbed into the pasta.

Happy Birthday To You
Happy Birthday To You
Happy Birthday Dear MAMA
Love you and see you in exactly 30min (or so).
Today is my mum’s birthday and that calls for a celebration. To those who don’t know her here are a few words to describe her
My mum is;
·Kind= always there supporting and pushing when a push is needed.
· Caring= we couldn’t get by with out her, even if we are all grown (we need our mama). And we all sometimes pretend we don’t, but in the end we all do.
· Creative= they based the character MacGyver on her, for real why would I lie about a thing like that?
· Intelligent = knows everything about everything, sort of like a dictionary. Trivial pursuit or Jeopardy not recommended with her if you are a sore looser.
· Loving= she is a mama and a good one, mind you she irritates me sometimes but that is mostly when she forgets that I am totally beyond change when it comes to taking care of a household.
Gotta go or she will get cross with me….

“I believe in angels, Something good in everything I see” What I see when I close my eyes is you singing along and dancing to this music.
See you in my dreams
