Tough times need love.

I absolutely adore Kristal and her eyes wide open approach to life. Today she is doing a share the love blog hop. I am going through a really rough spot personally and look forward to seeing all the love!! She has asked that we share one thing about ourselves that is special or unique. I LOVE LOVE LOVE music of all genres, but can not sing out in public because I am tone deaf. Yep I can make a real joyful racket!

I so appreciate all the love and want desperately to send some back but.... I have committed to making a 2 twenty foot banners a diaper cake, decorations and thank you notes for a baby shower my daughter is giving. She gave me a date in May and then when I was talking to her (she lives 500 miles away) yesterday afternoon at 2 she mentioned they had changed the date to April 17 YIKES she thought she had told me. Needless to say I am scrambling to get them done and in the mail. That being said I will hop around as soon as it is all done. In the meantime I am going to give you a chance for blog candy love.....as of yet it is mystery blog candy as I will get it in the next crafty store run (most likely pretty ribbon as I think no one ever has too much ribbon) will post a pic as soon as I have it. Will also post pics of my space..... right now TOO FUNNY trying to rush this job and entertain a 4 month old Boston Terrier TOTAL disaster!!
Follow this link to join in Kristal's share the love blog hop.


Yep the blog candy is ribbon. Will add to it but that will remain a mystery until it arrives at the winners house.
LOL just noticed that the cute cupcake ribbon is upside down....that is the kind of day I have had!!

    I am here from the link party. I see you like all types of music too. Have you been watching American Idol? If so, do you have a favorite yet?

  7. I just want to say "Glad I'm not the only mom that gets roped into large projects like that." I can't stop smiling knowing that even though you are streesed you are giving everything you have to make it just right. God Speed and you will have it done in no time and it will be just perfect.
