I don't know what the weather is like by you, but let me just tell ya, in Chicago it is COLD! Our schools have been closed since Thursday! Sometimes you gotta love those unexpected days off! I haven't done much in the way of creating, but I did do laundry and clean my house. And my best friend came over for a visit.

In the wee hours of the night, is when I seem to create. I used Crafty Secret's newest set called, Lucky Wishes. I colored this guy with my Copics and gave him some bling to his ring and turban! The glass globe was stamped on a transparency and embossed in gold. I randomly stamped dice around making sure not to stamp where the clear globe would be. See that ticket border? Yep, it is part of this set too! Super cute! To finish it off I used some string and a button.

I was awarded this award by my new blogger friend Ivy. She is a fellow Chicagoan and is freezing her butt off just like me! : ) I am supposed to list 7 things I LOVE. So here it goes:

1. I love when all my laundry is caught up........which rarely EVER happens!

2. I love anything that smells good.....air fresheners, candles, perfume, laundry detergent.....etc.

3. I love my family and friends! Without them I'd be in a loony bin!

4. This hobby that allows me to escape from life's troubles for awhile........and keeps me out of therapy or addiction........ok maybe this hobby IS an addiction! : )

5. My job! I love what I do! 5th graders are the best.......they get my sarcasm.......

6. My new dog Skippers.......he truly is the most lovable little guy ever!

7. Going out alone with the hubby........which doesn't happen nearly as often as I'd like........


Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great weekend!!!!!!!
