Botanical Facelift

I got bored. I looked at the wall and one of my rustic window decors. I looked at the website in front of me. I began printing....and printing...and printing...and now my ink cartridges are low..and printing and printing.

Finally, voila. Ahhhh...much better than empty little windows. :)

My first black eye

And Sir Aragon (aka Ari) gave it to me. What a nice boy. I was haltering him up, facing the right direction, doing everything right and wham! He decided to shake his head right when I swung the halter around his neck and his head smacked me right in the face...specifically my eye area. I'm pretty sure I recall seeing stars. I can't believe I'm going to show you these pictures. My hair is a mess and I have no makeup on but since we've all been close for awhile I feel like I can share anything!

This is the day it happened. The swelling took a couple of days to go down.

About a week later...

It's so funny to see people's reactions when they see a woman with a black eye. No one ever asks what happens either. Anyway, I still have the awful color but hopefully by this week I will have a normal eye!

I'm getting inspired by these little white lights...

Three generations and a new hairstyle

I love this picture. We took it this past Christmas. Me, mom, sis, brother and my niece..equals three generations.

Holidays are definitely made for photos like this to cherish. :) Also, I tried a new hairstyle for Christmas. Sort of a braid crown. You probably can't see the braid too much with my dark hair but I still love the style. Here's Molly Sims with the same style. :)

Romantic, don't you think?

Herb Chart

It's coming along great. This is where I left off with it about two weeks ago...and all because I am so disorganized. I lost my black artists marker that I was working with. *sigh* It WILL get done though!

My little secrets....

I'm not sure why this ran across my mind tonight as I looked at this picture. I'm not sure how I even came across this picture but I stared at it. Stared at her. What was she doing? What was she thinking? What was she hiding? A secret? We all have little secrets we don't like telling everyone but I'm going to start the year clean and tell you a few of mine. Don't ask why. I just thought it brave of me. :)

1. I am deathly afraid of water.
2. I'm a terrible procrastinator.
3. I'm highly unorganized.
4. I often do not finish what I start.
5. I am a daydreamer.
6. I have been suffering from insomnia, sometimes going to bed at 3 a.m.
7. I have to admit this but often love animals more than human beings.
8. I have seeing a therapist in my life.
9. I feel as though something big is on the horizon...something I will accomplish but don't know what it is yet.
10. I have a thing for bad boys (and I have a crush on Mark Wahlberg).
11. Almost all my friends are older than I am.
12. I regret never having children and becoming a full time mom.
13. I sometimes feel like a failure.
14. I never exercise.
15. I love puffed Cheetos.
16. I love Dots.
17. I want to make a quilt someday but am afraid of giving up before it's finished.
18. I wish I lived closer to my family. I miss them everyday.
19. I want to please everyone but know I can't and it hurts me when I can't.
20. I love driving long distances. It gives me time to think (and sing out loud).

What are your secrets?
