Hey everyone out there in cyberland!
I LOVE good harmless practical jokes. I want everyone to post a comment and share the best one you have done or someone has done to you.

Getting old SUCKS!

Ok. I've been wearing dollar store readers for a few years now. They are so perfect for a mizer like myself, that also has to color coordinate everything. I have readers for every outfit and every occasion. HOWEVER.........I found them so inconvenient AND highly breakable. They were also making my eyes WORSE. I couldn't even read prices in stores. Which to a cheapskate, I mean MIZER, like myself, that is a sin.

So...I broke down and went to an eye doctor, aka eyeglass salesman.

Let's just say my insurance was geared more toward prices in the 1970s. My mouth dropped when I heard the total. They are probably worth more than my good old compact car!!! Hell, just the lenses are!!!

Anyway.....I got those fancy dancy progressive lenses. Yes. I can see again and the glasses actually stay on. But here is where the fun begins.

First...I can't stop wearing them low on the nose(kinda sounds like a rap song) They sort of DO NOT work that way.

Second....If I move too fast things kinda go wacky for a second. Especially my computer screen. They make even more fancy dancy lenses for this purpose, but I said NO! Can't fathom what THEY would have cost!

Third...Where the hell did my peripheal vision go?

Fourth...I'm not sure I WANT to see everything THIS good!

Alright. I know it takes time to get used to these. Everyone has told me this. But I hope I don't get pulled over and asked to walk a straight line. I could be the 1st person arrested for failing a sobriety test and be sober! LOL!!!!! I can see them smacking their breathylizer and assuming it was broken. "Sorry ma'am. We're gonna have to take ya down to the station while we check out our equipment."

Boy does getting old SUCK!!

The frames ARE super cute though.

Hot weather tips

Keep the sun off your skin as much as possible. Actually wear more clothing consisting of loose fitting breathable fabric.

Run cold water on your wrists every hour

Use covers at night with a hot water bottle filled with ice water. Put it behind your ankles or knees.

Put an ice pack under your left arm. Close to the heart.

Wear cooling bandanas around your neck(carotid artery)

The point is to keep your major pulse points cool

Or be like me~sit your butt in the airconditioning or right in front of a fan with a nice cool drink:) Being out in this kind of weather will cause wrinkles girls!! Hot sun is VERY bad! Bad, I say!

Craft Show Preparedness!

I'm slowly collecting items to create a beautiful professional looking booth. I want people to feel like they are in a boutique not a pop up awning:)

My new banner will be hung on pink fabric. My new labels will be used for new earring cards. They are 1 1/2 inches round and I am putting them on pink 2 inch round cardstock.

I Tried a New Mascara

And me likey!

I have been thinking about wearing false eyelashes for about 2 years now. You know how the eyelashes get thinner as you mature(politically correct term for old). I have such a hard time with those horrible mascara wands. HATE THEM! But 'tis a necessity.

Well I bought the new L'Oreal Telescoping Explosion today. The (magic)wand is awesome.

It's the little round ball one and boy can you get each and every lash. I put a test swipe on my wrist and it will not wipe off.

I really suggest giving it a try!

I have included a pic for everyone, because, if you are like me, I stand there staring at everything trying to remember which one I wanted to try:)

My New Treasuries

Of course, this one is a given

Well, so is this one~LOL!!

And in honor of my first REAL eye exam in 4? some years, and the new glasses I have to get(damn old age) I made this one

Then last, but not least~for our very patient men


A lonely widow, age 70, decided that it was time to get married again.
She put an ad in the local paper that read:



On the second day, she heard the doorbell. Much to her dismay, she
opened the door to see a grey-haired gentleman sitting in a
wheelchair.. He had no arms or legs.

The old woman said, 'You're not really asking me to consider you, are you?
Just look at have no legs!

The old man smiled, 'Therefore, I cannot run around on you!'

She snorted. 'You don't have any arms either!'

Again, the old man smiled, 'Therefore, I can never beat you!'

She raised an eyebrow and asked intently, 'Are you still good in bed???'

The old man leaned back, beamed a big smile and said...

Rang the doorbell didn't I?

Long Year So Far


I haven't been paying much attention to my business lately. There have been a few deaths in my life this year. Worst year ever and July just started. However, I feel I'm coming back around. I made a few new pieces and have been working on my animal blogs. It feels really good. I am even starting to put together things to do shows. Slowly! LOL!
