Eggstra Special Easter

We took these the other day when we went to look at our new house. The people were still moving out, so we havn't seen the inside, but the outside is sure nice :) Do you like?

I can't wait to see what it looks like on the inside. I had some friends tell me that they're really well made. Hard wood floors, tile, carpet in the bedrooms. Not cheaply made like the house we're in now. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE our house now, but it's not the most sturdy of construction. Looks good on the surface, though. But I must say, I LOVE the large tile floor. It's the PERFECT color. You can't tell that it's dirty - ROFLMBO!!!

Well, my sweetheart is officially gone for 6 weeks :( He left yesterday late afternoon, and was driving to Georgia. I sure don't envy him that ride. I'm not a good long distance driver/passenger. I would make a HORRIBLE trucker - hehehe.

We spent the whole day watching him pack. Man, you woudln't believe how much stuff you can cram into a little Saturn Ion - hehehe. I was able to catch up on a LITTLE bit of email (catch up is VERY misleading - hehehe), and was able to design my 5 WordArt packs for the day. Wednesdays are always pretty long and busy :)

We had Cub Scouts tonight, too. Tom got his Bear Badge! Good job, Thomas! I'm so proud of you!!! For some reason, my camera's flash was messed up, so this picture was TOTALLY dark, but I was able to change the exposer in Photoshop, and lighten it up a bit. I was able to fix it in the other photos, luckily :)

Smile, Tom. It's a happy day :)

Man, this kid is gonna be the death of me. DANG! He would NOT sit still, and it was a struggle the whole time. Only 6 more months until he's not 3 anymore - LMBO! Good thing he's so cute :)

OK, first off, I just have to confess. I don't believe in lotteries. Or raffles. It just gambling. Sure, someone wins, but most people just put their money in the communal pot. So, how's that for a promotional pitch - LMBO!!!

But, if you're the gambling type, this might be for you. For $2.00, you have a chance to win the ENTIRE Scraporchard store. My part alone is over $500 (I KNOW, that's a lot of WordArt :). That's over $3800 worth of Digi products. Holy crap!!! You have one month to download all of it. Really, it's a crazy prize!!!

So, click on the ad below to learn more details at the Scraporchard forum.

I totally forgot that I signed up to do a blog train yesterday with Michelles Angels. Oops. hehehe. I only have a FEW things on my mind these days - hehehe. SO, lets play it off that I was in a funky time zone, and that's why it was late - hehehe. Anyway, here's the blog train list (see mine in the middle :), and below the LONG list is my part - the WordArt. Easter, to boot! Don't you just love Easter??? I sure hope the Easter Bunny remembers to come to our house. We are moving Easter weekend. Nice, eh? hehehe. Please, someone remind me on Saturday. Please, for my kids' sake - ROFL!!!

I love this cute little chick and saying. You do good work.

My scout pictures always turn out terrible. I think the cultural hall just sucks all the light out of everything. Oh. and I dreamed that I was in TX visiting my mom and saw your DH. I was like "Where's Bethany, I gotta meet her!" I guess that makes me a fan. LOL

LMBO!!!! That's TOO funny :) But seriously, if you're really in Texas some day, LOOK ME UP!!! :)

Thank you so much for this Freebie. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in Creative Busy Hands Scrapbook Freebies Search List, under the Easter post on Apr. 02, 2009. Thanks again.

Congratulations on your new house!

I found your site about 2 weeks ago, and have become obsessed with your word art. It's wonderful! I'm currently downloading a lot of it, because it inspired me - Every year, I make a scrapbook for my husband's grandmother who lives across the country from us. It's a "year in review" kind of thing, with pictures of my son. I was grasping for a theme this year, when I found your site. I'm going to choose 10-12 of your sayings and build 20-24 layouts around them. When I get it done, I'll send you a link if you like.

So, if you've been wondering why your site has been getting so many hits from one IP address, that's me. Thank you so much!

Thank you! Your blog post will be advertised on the DigiFree Digital Scrapbooking Freebie search engine today (look for timestamp: 02 Apr [LA 07:00pm, NY 09:00pm] - 03 Apr [UK 02:00am, OZ 12:00pm] ).

Funny that you said that about lotteries. When I first read the notice about the lottery at SO I thought how fun it would be to win the store... but then I thought of how bad I'd feel if I spent $10 and didn't win. I don't even want to spend $2 and not win. I'm not good at gambling!! I can't stand to lose $2!! LOL I've never even put a nickle in a slot machine. (I know, I'm boring.) ;-)

Thanks for another super cute word art. Best wishes with the move.... I honestly don't know how you stay so sane with all of this moving around. :)

Your easter chick is adorable! Thanks so much! BTW I have 3 kids ages 14, 10 & 3 and people aways ask if they are all mine and if they have the same dad(they are & they do)-very annoying! My sister has 5(4 boys)and people tell her they are sorry for her! Boy it gets her going-she tells them she's sorry they think that way because all of her kids are blessings! Anyway your comments sound just like the ones we hear! Too funny-nosy people! :-)

Your new home photos look so exciting! I hope your move goes smoothly for you. I love your site - I have been checking out your work for a few months now. We have a BOY SCOUT in our house so I appreciate some of your word art related to kids!
Stop by my garden sometime - it would be an honor.

Hey Darling! You sure have been busy haven't ya! Sorry, I haven't stopped by for awhile...been busy too! *LOL* I just LOVE your new house! Can't wait to see pix of the inside!

Jan said...

Wow, Bethany! Love the new house. It reminds me of the Spanish style house
my husband and I built in Florida. Why I ever left it and moved to KY, I'll never know. I live in a 1860
log house now on a farm. It is smaller, than the 4000 sq ft FL one,
but way harder to keep clean. Then maybe it is because I am 13 years older, disabled now and raising 3
grand daughters. Go figure.
I also really enjoyed your post of
the reinactment trip your family went on. I have alway wanted to do that. I love reading your blog. As
I have to stay in bed most days, I see the world through your eyes. I
was a military daughter and wife for 35 years. I sure do miss it.

Your chick is so cute, I'm going to use it to decorate the front of some of the Easter box baskets, we will be making for a retirement home's meal tray! I have already covered 48 empty General Foods International Coffee cans with wallpaper. We will be decorating the fronts and adding pipe cleaner handles. Thanks for helping to brighten up someone's day! ~ CM2
