We all know that the only way to get anything done is to bribe a politician, and so I need enough money to bribe one or two.
My cause is great.
I WANT TO ABOLISH TIME CHANGES!
Look - because I'm so befuddled by these STUPID time changes twice a year, which not only make me question the nature of time, relativity and our place in the universe, but also make me VERY cranky - I honestly don't care WHICH time needs to go away - the DST, the non-DST, whatever!!
It just needs to go away. There is no reason in the world that 7 AM should suddenly become 6 AM or 8 AM based on what a governing body decides.
The SUN decides our days, and time should not change because there's something some ding dong in Washington wants it to be dark while he's doing something shady.
Like taking a bribe.
To end it once and for all.
So please send me bribe money and I'll take care of it so we can all be happy like people in Arizona are. You're welcome.
Now in the light that is allotted to me by the government, I decided to experiment last week for Libby's Hope You Can Cling To challenge, which was to use paint, in honor of her grandmother, a breast cancer survivor.
I love all things painty, and I wanted to do something different from my normal acrylic/gesso type projects, so I chose Smooch for my card.
I took Moonlight Smooch and painted it on the background from Creative Elements. Look how finely detailed the paint stays!
Cardstock: Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Lucky Limeade

Oh but wait. The best is yet to come!!
I learned the coolest tip from my beloved Mel last week!! I have never gotten used to my reverse tweezer thingies. They just break my brain. It's like when you're playing one of those flight simulator games and pulling up on the controller makes the plane go down. They just don't make sense to my paws.
HOWEVER, the brilliant, lovely and talented Mel posted about using them as a third hand when you are tying ribbon and BEHOLD!!!
Where have I BEEN?? This is such a breakthrough for me and my poorly tied bows.
- I got this book on coloring out of my closet this week and I learn something every time I go through it.
- Since I was in the closet, I got out one of my fave cookbooks that I own to make the biscuit topped spinach/chicken pie. MMM. I've had this cookbook since 1992 and it has some of the best recipes. I adapted my own amazing meatloaf recipe from one in this book. I need to give some love to my old cookbooks.
- And then I bought this tool, and this accessory because this is one papercraft I've never tried, and I want to!
