Vote for Me an' I'll Set Ya Free!

Pin It

Not really ... I'm jess feelin' the Election Day vibe. Don't even tell me you didn't vote today ...

So, yuppers, it's me ... I'm back ... for today, anyway ... with another paper bag album to show y'all. This is what I do with myself these days:

This ^ is the cover ... duh:


This ^ spread is pages two and three;


This ^ spread is pages four and five;


This ^ spread is pages six and seven:


This ^ spread is pages eight and nine; and,


This ^ spread is pages ten and eleven.

This album is currently up for bid on eBay. There's also more (larger and not-so-distorted), photos on my listing ... if you'd care to check it out, you can clicky HERE ... and a new window will open ... not an old window; a new window.

Since I decided to actually make some money rather than just spend it, I've been horrible about card making ... and bloggin'. I have every intention of returning to full-time blogging and card making when I begin to enjoy the effects of my micro-economic recovery plan, or "M-ERP" for short. Provided that actually happens ...

But I want you to know I miss ALL of you horribly ... and I miss spending hours and hours visiting your blogs and seeing all of your amazin' paper creations. Let's face it: you guys rock!

In other news, Sheila asked me to go with her to a funeral parlor and look at urns.

"Yucko," I answered, "Why?"

"Well, the DH and I want to have all this stuff resolved now so that the kids won't have to worry about it later on down the road," she responded.

So, off we go to Palms West Funeral Home ... to pick out funeral urns. Big fun ... and totally my idea of the perfect day!

"Well, which one do you like?" Sheila asked.

"Ummm ..." I stammered.

"How 'bout this one?"

"Ummmm ..."

"You're no help," she sputtered.

"Ummmmmm ..."

"Never mind," she said, "I'll take the blue one. You know I always look good in blue."

Seriously. No, REALLY. Cross my heart and hope to ... ummmmm ...

~Hugs,
