*Leaving on a jet plane...or in a Mini Van...*whatev!* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....

Today is the DAY that I leave for CHA!!!! WOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOO!! Can not WAIT to meet Amanda from Flamingo Scraps,  see Nikki again, meet Lisa and gang from just a LONG laundry list of peeps to see and product to check out! CAN NOT WAIT! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

 Wanted to share some goodies with everyone today! :):):):):):):):) Today is Thursday so its time for a new Sketchy Thursdays sketch! I JUST LOVE THIS ONE!!! WOOOOOO!!!!! Made with the EVER YUMMY Crate Paper and Tessa's GORGEOUS flowers from her ETSY shop and also some YUMMY Nikki Sivils burlap buttons and her alphas too! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Here is our sketch this week....

And here is my take on it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And today is a bittersweet its my last day as a DT member for so today I have my very last lo posted on their BLOG... I think this month's kit was by FAR my FAVE ever...and I am LOVING how this turned out! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) I can not thank Lisa enough for the chance to work with her...she is AMAZING! And I am SUPER excited to meet her at CHA on Saturday!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) 

Ohhhhhhh and I had some questions from my 8 things about me yesterday from my bloggy award I got... so here are your answers in red :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

1) People always wonder how I accomplish so! Well, part of it is I get up at 3:30 everyday (except for the weekends, when I get up at 5AM then!)...I started getting up at 3:30 when I was a single Mom with Adam when he was it was the only time I got to myself... and have been doing it ever since! :) 
*I get up at 3:30AM on the weekdays and go to bed around 10:15-10:30PM*
2) I was in drama in school! (I know you are all shocked by this! lol!) ... in fact, I BET you can guess WHAT role I played in the play, "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown!"... *hint... she has the same hair color as me!* :) 
*Yes! I was Lucy in the play!*

4) A lot of you all ready know this... but I will share again... I DO NOT drive! Never have, never scare me, period. 
*I am really not kidding about is true, I have never had a drivers license in my life! :)  Before Brian came into my life, I took the bus or I walked, I just always made sure that I lived near a daycare for Adam (at the time he was in daycare), and near a bus line to get me to work.... sooooooooo if you KNOW that my email addy is BMWGIRL that doesn't stand for the BMW CAR... it stands for Brian's initials, and I am his girl! LOL* 

7) One of my nicknames is "Miracle Worker"... I can walk into anyone's home/apartment etc...I can re-organize it/clean it/make it all work just right... usually within one day! My BFF once flew me out to NJ for the weekend, just to help her organize her new apartment! LOL!:) 
* This is true.  I actually started packing things for our upcoming move yesterday in my back room at 1:30PM...and by 3:30PM I had about 40 boxes packed and organized neatly in my back room*
Hope this helps! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Well...that's it for me today... I will try my bestest to keep up with everyone while I am gone! Thanks for stopping by... I truly appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


  1. I'm so excited to hear about your CHA trip!! How very cool!!! I know you will take a ton of pics!

    I'm very glad that you shared these facts about you! I have learned a lot. I get up early, not as early as you, but because it helps us get ready in time in the mornings. I can totally understand your reasoning for getting up so early though. Makes me want to try it.

    The whole car thing was interesting to me. I thought the whole car thing in relation to your email addy as well! How funny. Your hubby's initials. Did you ever take the driving classes? With public transportation, getting around is so easy these days if you live in the right places, so I understand. I didn't have a car for years after I had my son. I was and technically still am a single mom. So I feel ya there! Love ya lady!

  2. Well missy, I got you beat.......I'm up every morning at 3:00 a.m. (part of my medicine dosing) but I stay up till 1:00 p.m., take a two hour nap, more medicine at 3:00 p.m. and off to bed around 10 or 11 at night. If I still had my health, I'd even outdo you, but alas, you are the winner in this race. I am such a fan of yours, of just everything you do, and so proud to know you. Please take some time for yourself and do something relaxing while you're at need to pamper yourself once in a while or you can burn up. I'm so jealous that you're going.....someday, when I get rich, I wanna go to.

    Have a great time, stay safe.

    Love ya'

  36. HI SWEETIE!!!
    SO glad I popped in today and read those things about you!!!
    I NEVER knew that about you, any of that!!
    The one that shocks me the most is the NO drivers license one, my oh my how do you do it????
    Great choice to live by, but I would be lost.
    So happy you are off to a special place, only I do not know where???
    Have fun sweetie, I love all your pics and your LAYOUTS!!!
    Great job, I am a NIGHT owl, so I stay up late to have alone time, sometimes up til 1--sometimes 2, get up 7 hours later, I need 7 hours of sleep!!
    This week, not so much --sleep, that is OK, I will next week or the week after.
    helping out with a very special little guy!!

  37. Julie, I hope to see you! It has been so long since we have chatted. You have so much going on and are full of so much creativity, I love it! I will stop by Nikki's booth and I hope to catch you!

  38. Oh gorgeous stuff!! Love the layouts. Ooooo, have fun at CHA for me. My trip got canceled... I'll miss seeing everyone. Have fun, take lots of picts!

  39. Wow Julie, totally gorgeous layouts today, I just love, love, love them, love the flowers on the first one and the photos are just perfect! :)

  40. Adorable pages, Julie! I'm especially loving that pink/orange color combo.

    5 hours is so not enough sleep for me...I'd be one big beyotch. I need 8 hours! And you are one fast guys will be moved in no time!

  41. Wonderful pages.... the one of the kids together is fab!!! Great color combo!!! I am still amazed at you... I get up at 4am... and I have to go to at 8:30-9pm or I'll be a zombee.... I would love to create that early but... my nephew is living with us and the studio is otherwise occupied with him sleeping... maybe I should do some planning the night before and take some things out to work on... nahh... too much work to put it all back...

    You're one of the most amazing women I know....

    Ya know I'm just like you when it comes to packing... organized packed and ready to go... but I still could use the help with the organizing in my home... been here almost 2 years and I still don't like where some things are in my home...

    have a fab trip enjoy the show and the 'company' if you know what I mean... lol!!!
    {{hugs}} Michelle
