Do you suppose that frogs fart?? If they does that look? Does it offend other frogs, or is it a status symbol?? You know...I may very well have too much time on my hands! lol

The Revenge of Rubberface!

I'm a bad tooth owner - I'll admit it! I'm not sure why I avoid the dentist…I just do! I shouldn't though - my dentist is totally cute! He's got a fooze ball table, video games and television in the ceiling! And yet - I go about every 3 years…usually when I HAVE to go.

Last night we had pork chops for dinner…I took a bite and WHAM! It felt like my tooth would split in two!!! I didn't eat last night…by this morning I was starving and my tooth still hurt! I was lucky to get in to see my Dentist at 10:30 this morning. He told me that when a tooth ache is waking you up at night it means 1 of 2 would need to be pulled…or a root canal!! Happy feeling gone!! My first response was…"I was kidding - it's totally NOT waking me up at night!" So he laughed at me and tapped on the troubled tooth with something metal and painful!! So I jumped about 2 feet and when I landed I told him I'd mess him up if he hurt me! lol Yeah - he totally wasn't threatened! An hour later, I left with a temporary filling to deal with for 2 weeks while the medication they jammed into the root canal does its thing!

I head to the superstore for Ibuprofin...then to Tim HOrtons for chocolate milk to wash it down. The punk behind the counter was admiring my palsy (which conicadentally also magnifies the moustache I seem to have grown overnight!). I try to smile and tell him I just had a root canal...He says - "yeah - I can tell!" I seriously wanted to kick the crap out of him! Then he laughs at me when I tried to take a drink!!! I didn't think it was that funny! Imagine trying to coordinate drinking from a triangular cardboard box without half of your bottom lip! Yeah...Not Hot!! And not funny either!! We'll see who's laughing when I kick his A$%! LOL

So here I sit - back at work. I picked up Wendy's cuz I'm starving and thought…it's soft! Well…it's the Revenge of Rubber Face!! The drool is totally NOT HOT and I'm trying to tear hunks of my burger off with my lips…but only half my face is working! The other half feels like it's sliding off! I really do look quite ridiculous and everyone is looking at me funny! I tried to take a drink of my coke...but my pucker is frozen too! Seriously!! Hopefully when the freezing comes out I won't look like such a dork!!

Oh a happier note - I got 3 bags of Timothy mix hay for the girls today for only $2.99 each!! WOOT! (Oh - for those of you who don't know..."The girls" in question are my guinea pigs and not my children...My children won't touch the stuff! LOL)

My very first post! it is. My brand new Blog! I've been kinda driving myself crazy (I know - it's a short drive) trying to figure out what my first post should be...I mean, it is - after all my first post! Then I figured - who cares?? Chances are that anything that I do put on here will be moronic at best but maybe - just maybe - it will give somebody a laugh or two...I guess only time will tell :)

Happy reading :)

How cool is this??!!!

What an awsome step by step for a terrific storage helper!! I made a 1 tier spinny...but so far my base is made using a trivet! lol (The joys of creative thought!) Anyway - just thought this would be fun to share :) Not my idea...but it's totally a great one! Find the step by step on Rocky Mountain Hobbies!

Star Album

I found this super great tutorial for Star albums on Scrapbook Crazy! It made them super easy to put together too!

Flaming Bratz Cake

I did this one for my daughters 6th Birthday. The flames are an inside joke (I'd love to set all the Bratz dolls on fire!) lol she LOVED her cake though, and the fact that the Bratz dolls have removable feet made it extra convenient! Barbies are about 2" too tall for the Wilton Wonder Mold, so I always wind up making a separate ring cake to use as the base. If I use a Barbie, the end result is over 12" of cake skirt! This one was just enough cake for 13 kiddo's, a handfull of parents, and a little bit left to take home :)

Belly Cake

I'm super pleased with how this one turned out! I made it for a baby shower for a co-worker. They're expecting a grand son! The top is rolled fondant over a heavy layer of butter cream frosting. I colored the cake blue too! I hope they enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed making it!

Paper Pinecones!! (I didn't make these but...)

My SIL started making these as Christmas ornaments, and I fell in LOVE with them!! I meant to ask her to show me how...I just never got around to it. She made them again, this year (but used a corner punch for her squares? I'm not sure how that works exactly - but I'm hoping to find out!! In any case, I found a super AWSOME step by step for them on "Craft Store Junky's" blog! She also posted an update with a diagram!! How awsome is THAT??!! Check it out!! AND if I ever figure out how to do it using a corner punch...I'll let ya know ;)

Super fun Christmas Trees!

I found these super adorabel trees the other day, and I'm reeeeely hoping to try them out soon! I found them on the Oriental Trading web site, along with their super simple step by step! Even the kids would have fun making these!!
