Disney Cards

Been busy with the Mickey Mouse cart this week - maybe trying to get myself pumped up for our Disney trip?? Who knows??? All I know is I have Mickey and Co on the brain.

I am going to tell you a sweet little story.....Katherine is on the phone w her 6 yr old grandson, Michael. Michael is expressing his concerns that he is going to miss trick-or -treat because we will be at Disney over halloween. Katherine reassured him that we would be going to a party at the Magic Kingdom for halloween. She swears she heard his eyes get bigger over the phone!!! He yells to his mom "MOM!!!! Mickey Mouse invited ME to a halloween party!!!!"

So, Katherine calls me (sounding in a bit of a panic!) and tells me the story....and asks me if I can use my crafting skills to make an actually invitation for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party :) WELL YEAH! I have an excuse to play!!!!!  Here is what I made:



So I have my Mickey Mouse cartridge out and decided to make a few more cards.

My mom LOVES Goofy, has for years and years so for her birthday I made her a Goofy card to go with her LimaBean Wreath....

Then I made my friend Katherine a Mickey card to tell her thank you for inviting me...

So now I am ready to go!! Have EARS, will TRAVEL! I am leaving in about an hour!

Disney Anticipation!

One week from today (right now) I will be in Orlando, FL w my bestie - Katherine - and her grandson, Michael (this is his 6th b-day gift from his grandma). I have been blessed to be asked to accompany them on this trip. This will my 2nd trip to DisneyWorld - the last trip was when I visited this same friend when she was living in Florida a few years back.

I am super super super super excited! I love DisneyWorld!!! L♥VE L♥VE L♥VE it!!!
It was everything I thought it would be and more!!!!!

And, in advance, I want to thank Katherine and Micheal for allowing me to tag along and not getting embarrassed when I embrace my inner child and demand (while stomping my foot) to ride the TeaCup ride yet another time.

Poor Katherine, last trip she wanted to move on to Space Mountain and bigger rides, while I was perfectly content to ride the is a pic from our last trip :) TeaCup rides make me happy!!!!

NO! I don't want to get off!!!!!

Here is Katherine and I as we arrived to the Wonderful World of Disney

and since Katherine tolerated my obsession w the teacups I rode the dang "Its a small world" ride even though the little dolls creep me out!!!

OMG this ride goes on FOREVER and EVER and EVER....and the dolls STARE at you!!!

(see the creepy eyes???)

I have already been informed that I will be subjected to the small boring world for at least one time - she thinks that the poor kid needs to "experience" it - good thing he will be sleeping w her when he has the nightmares that night huh???

Wreath mood....

I'm not sure why I am in a "wreath mood" these days...everywhere I look I am noticing them, maybe its the holiday season coming, maybe its just a phase, who knows, all I know is I LOVE them! and I want to MAKE them. Just not sure what I am going to do with them after they are made, you can only hang one at a time on the front door. Ya Know???

So I finished up my 2nd Lima Bean wreath - this one is for my mom....someone (one of the kids - either the 17 yr old or the 21 yr old!!!!) TOUCHED the chrome paint on the "D" (like a 4 year old) and it totally ticked me off!!!

Here is moms - need to get it in the mail in the next few days...

Then I decided to make a tulle wreath for Christmas - I think I am going to cut some holiday die cuts on my Cricut and add them too it (but I honestly like it almost like it is right now).....

Then, I was playing on Pinterest and saw a fabric covered wreath w felt flowers and decided to make my own!

Here is the one I saw:

and here is MINE:

Since I will be re-doing Victoria's room pretty soon and turning it into my craft area, I was thinking of making it brown with pink accents and this would be perfect!

What I have been up to...

Life has been CrAzY for the last few weeks, Birthdays, Anniversary, Hubby out of town, got my Imagine in the mail,  Trip to the Texas/OU game...and the rest of the month looks just about as busy!

Coming up: Taylor Swift concert this weekend (Can't wait Can't wait Can't wait - I am like on of her 14 yr old groupies! I have had these tickets since April!!!!)

Saturday Swarm in Norman (gonna be a blast!)

Dad is scheduled for surgery - triple angioplasty and not sure if he will need stents or not yet) - interesting that I am not the kid who is going to be with them during the procedure - I have been replaced by the now living closer daughter who doesn't speak to me (can you believe that ANYONE wouldn't like MOI???) ~this is probably a story for a later date...

and finally....drum roll please....a trip with one of my best friends to DISNEYWORLD!!!! We are taking her grandson on his first Disney experience for his 6th birthday (all I am paying for is my food and the ride to and from the airport, I have wonderful friends with lots of "points"!)

I think I am going to need the month of November off from all activity (except Thanksgiving) just to recuperate!

If you wonder what I have been doing here is some of it....
