I think I like them just like this:

Dudes, sending a girl a guilt text to make her feel bad about not replying to your other crappy texts does not win you any points…just sayin'…
And while I'm on the subject; since when does "When can I get wit'you?" replace "Are you free for dinner/movie/coffee/whateverfloatsyerboat tonight?" Am I that old fashioned? Is it really ok to invite yourself over to a woman's home after one phone conversation? Are "Come over" texts at 12AM the new "Let's grab a drink?" Am I living in a bygone era? You say we should grab a bite to eat sometime…<-----what's that? Sometime? Anytime? When time? Oh, right!! Now I'm supposed to ask YOU out! No thanks, I'd rather die a childless spinster.
P.S. Thank you, to the sweet, hot, 21 year old for complimenting me on my name, my hair, and my laugh before asking if I was free for an entire day…and reminding me why I don't have to settle. Too bad I'm almost old enough to be your momma.

It rained TORRENTS at the beginning of summer, there were 50 mph winds just days ago, and my my air-conditioner falls out of the window on a cold drizly autumn night…and not just night, the middle of the night; 2 AM to be precise. The cold, wet, muddy, middle of the night…and I, the only one home, had to squeeze myself and this 50 lb hunk of wet metal and plastic through the three foot breezeway that was reduced to one ft. by the presence of several large immoveable pieces of 8 ft privacy fencing. Now my backside won't get warm and my arms and legs feel like I've done a triathlon.
Oh yes, and I ruined a pair of jeans, a new coat, gloves, and boots trying to rescue a very muddy $150 two year old air-conditioner… I wonder if that little trip voided my warranty.

<pMan, this 70° and 80° weather is killing me…not that it's not awsome and all, it's just kinda weird to be making snowflake ornaments with the air on :-/.
I should be grateful though, if we'd been getting our usual temps, and usual rain, these would still be just an idea…no where in my apartment can I safely use spray paint.
I have paper snowflakes in my Etsy shop http:www.etsy.com/shop/coldcrimsonember and someone requested silver, I can't find plain silver, so, I thought i'd experiment with metalic colored spray paint.
I keep thinking I need to break this project down and post instructions or a video tutorial. One day maybe.

Two in fact… and actually, one might be more a small bit of advise.
* Unless you eat, drink, and share the tv remote with someone, it's more than likely that you don't really know them. I'm not saying we can't form an opinion of our neighbors, in-laws, co-workers, etc. just because we don't share laundry and toilet cleaning duties; I'm saying, it's just an opinion unless you do. And be cool when you find out you're wrong…because, at some point, you're going to be wrong, don't resist it.
* It's not cool, to call yourself cool. Ok, so maybe thats more of an opinion than an observation. Even at thirtyfive, I still feel the pain of trying to fit in…well, maybe not me exactly, but I can, erm… empathize. It's just, when you're raising third graders, you should probably stop acting like one.
Frustrated and annoyed
We apologize for the breif interruption. And now for our regularly scheduled program.
Look Mom! See what I can do! ;)

Awsome how varying sizes in the beads changes the shape of the design. This was done exactly like the other polka dots, but the colored beads were just a fraction longer than they were wide, and barely bigger than the black ones, so my spots came out oval and raised instead of flat and round. I'm digging it, hope my niece does too.

Didn't mean to stay up this late, but I just couldn't put it down.
What to give the twelve year old boy who has every electronic device/game system known to man?
A checker board the size of his back pocket…well, it will be when I finish it (probably at 4AM on Saturday).

My sister and her step daughter celebrate their birthdays together because they're just a day apart, and normally I wouldn't give them matching gifts, but my sister loves my jewlery, and I've never made anything for my niece… so why not, right?
The first one is my sister's, the second went to my niece.

I've not been idle though, nope, not me, the insomniac.
This was the first dreamcatcher, the frame is 26 guage silver colored wire, the web is 32 guage silver colored wire, with an amethyst bead chip to represent the spider, and a green czech glass leaf...I've gotten better at it since this one.
