THREE A.M.????? What???? And...yeah...I'm with Spooky! :):):):):):):):):)

Hi all......

*knocking on wood* I hope this will be fast I am running around like crazy getting TOMORROW'S post ready for "These are a Few of my Favorite Things" next challenge! :):):):):):):) The DT are frantically voting tonight....this one, no that one...hehehehehehehe...its soooooooooooooooo fun...but sooooooooo hard to CHOOSE!!! :):):):):):):):):):):)
I also want to share the latest CAFE MOJO challenge......with back to school "back in the swing of things"....we wanna see a LO with your back to school routine .... or just your daily routine in general! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)  Yes....that title does read...."People say my routine is CRAZY * but its my peace time!" :):):):):):):) Yes, folks....I do get UP at 3AM.....because it is the only time I get stuff done without interruption!!!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):) I used a flower and leaf from Tonia's ETSY and made the peace sign using some wood grain contact paper and the yellow felt flowers from Jeanet! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Next Scrapping the Music.....after Michael Jackson passed away (*side note....because I need to say....RIP to Patrick Swayze today too....*sniff sniff*....."nobody puts baby in a corner.....* *sigh*)....ok....anywho....after Michael passed away....the girls at Scrapping the Music discussed with Mary, the owner of the blog about doing a Michael Jackson song as a tribute....well, at that time, we all ready had the summer songs lined up to go....sooooooooooooooooo we are doing it this week......"We are the World" is our song this week.....and I really wanted to emphasize on the suffering that is happening everyday .... everywhere ..... I used a National Geographic page from an issue in the 1960's....soooooooooooooo it seems suffering has been happening for a long time...... hope U all can play with this AMAZING song.....whether U like Michael on a personal life level or not....he truly was a music genius and icon and truly did set the stage for many of todays artists out there...I loved his music....I could listen to "Black or White" "Scream" "Thriller" anyday everyday..... :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh and I wanna show U what I made with Nikki Sivils BOO-tiful line! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)  Now....I will admit...I have made PLENTY of Halloween LO's in the past.....but....I never decorate for Halloween....Adam ALWAYS wants me too....but I never do.....but when I got Nikki's Halloween line...OMYGOSH....I sooooooooooooooooooo had to make a decoration for the kids this year! :):):):):):):):):):):) He has a little shirt on that says, "I'm with SPOOKY!" ...I was going for those T-shirts that read, "I'm with Stupid!" and the arrow pointing to the guy next to him!!! hehehehehehehe :):):):):) I made a little candy dish for the kids....and let me tell U....ADAM got the biggest grin on his face....for I FINALLY GOT HIM A HALLOWEEN DECORATION for the HOUSE!!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Ok.....I am off to check on the girls voting....LOVE TO ALL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I may eventually gear my blog to the young ones, I am thinking about it- I just don't know - it really depends on this company and where I go from here. Anyways, just know I appreciate you a whole bunch! You are such a kind person, so glad I finally 'met' you! lol
