chaos... panic!

oh wait... it does that all the time anyways...

There is some SERIOUS pocketbook makin' panic happening in the "la.bor.a.tory"!!!  Ohmygosh - how close to Zapp time am I? Ohmygosh - do I have enough pocketbooks made? Ohmygosh - WILL I have enough pocketbooks made? Ohmygosh - can I keep this one? "How cute is this" is heard echoing out from the "la.bor.a.tory" quiet often... (Sometimes I sound like the bluebell ice cream commercial...)

So how do I deal with the chaos, panic and disorder that I make happen seems to surround me? Well..... let me introduce you to a new red.neck family member - "ev.e.lyn"...

of "Day Bags" (those wonderful vintage hand-held darlings) - a special collection straight off the cinder blocks in the red.neck Chic lab! AND!  Not ONLY is "ev.e.lyn" the "first lady"... but there are a couple more headin' in to the new collection! Every girl needs some red.neck arm candy, right?

Sew - while I'm slavin' away in the "la.bor.a.tory"... what are you up to this week? Did you have a good week-end? Do you know how to sew 'cause I'm in panic mode... I pay in pocketbooks...

Comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide (where I'm wondering what kind of goofball tries to design new patterns while whippin' out enough pocketbooks to take to Zapp Hall? geesh...) hee-hee

I hope you catch some "pretty" AND some "pretty awesome" junk this week-end!!! Enjoy!!!

Comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide (where I'm building a whole TEAM of fun things...)hee-hee

walk with me...

Lately I've been so busy trying to accomplish just one more thing - either in business or in my personal life. Sooo busy trying to fit just one more minute in to each day and night. Soooooo busy frantically scribbling just one more sentence in to this chapter of my life story.

After who knows how long it has finally occurred to me that my story has already been written. That I should be walking and dancing and twirling and running and skipping across the pages -  instead of trying to be the editor with red pen in hand.

So now?  The duct tape mobile got parked for a few minutes...

and I decided a leisurely stroll was just what the editor ordered... let me introduce you to my world - set the scene for this chapter - my book ('cause you are in it!). 

Take my hand, walk with me for a while...

these are just around my hood...

now - let's hit the road!

Are you writing your own story or are you dancing and twirling across the pages of the book that has already been written for you?

Comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide (where I thank you for taking a walk with me!!!  It's so nice to have had a cold front and now it's only 99 degrees outside...) hee-hee

if all of THAT isn't enough - here's some more!

true love.

Collards is green, my dog's name is Blue*
And I'm so lucky to have a sweet thang like you.
Yore Naugahyde is like corn silk a-flappin' in the breeze.
Softer than Blue's* and without all them fleas**.

Yo're as cute as a junebug a-buzzin' overhead.
You ain't mean like those far ants I found in my bed.
Cut from the best Naugahyde like a plaid flannel shirt,
You spark up my life more than a fresh load of dirt.

When you hold me real tight like a padded gunrack***,
My life is complete; Ain't nuttin' I lack.
Yore complexion, it's perfection, like the best vinyl sidin'.
Despite all the years, yore age, it keeps hidin'.

Me 'n' you's like a Moon Pie with a RC cold drank,
We go together like a skunk goes with stank.
Yo're as satisfy'n as okry jist a-fry'n in the pan
Like a good roll of duct tape, you're perfect fer me - i gotsa plan...

* my dogs' names are actually Pepe', Pooch and Max...but I couldn't make those rhyme with anything...
** I ain't got no stinkin' fleas...
*** or the little white jacket everyone insists I wear so often (I just don't get that...attall...)...

Comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide (where even though I currently have THREE chairs awaiting attention so they can go to the Taj Mahal - I still managed to drag another one home... but it's not leavin'.  It's mine.  I'm keeping it... do you like it?)...hee-hee

taco salad!

I think I like being OneHundredandSeventyThree... yesterday "the Mama" celebrated my birthday again!!!

Every year (and I mean EVERY year) I request some good ol' Taco Salad.

Seriously - can you think of ANYTHING better than Taco Salad?  Oh wait..... perhaps some sausage balls?  Yeah...

What a combo, right?  Throw in some cheese dip and chips and some sort of ribs and sausage that "the Mama" created from scratch - and you get a "red.neck birthday dinner"... complete with the resident red.neck.  No silly - not ME - you HAVE to meet my Uncle some time... and my younger cousin... I come by it all SO naturally - I'm tellin' you!

To top it ALL off and round out the belly ('cause that's what happened.... I waddled home...)

TWO pineapple-upside-down-cakes!  One 'cause I guess I HAD to share with everybody (geesh) and one to take home that I DON'T have to share!!!  Yeeeeee HA! Happy birthday to ME!!!
I can't wait 'til I turn 200... think she'll make 200 pineapple-upside-down-cakes for me?  hmmmm...

Wanna know what else?

Because "the Mama" and the "step-Daddy" are just COOL like that!!! Thank You "the Mama!"!

How was your week-end?  You shoulda' been here... I would've shared my Taco Salad and cake with you...

Comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide (where I'm thinking... I could serve dinner for a whole lotta people off of my dishes... and I wouldn't HAVE to know how to cook 'cause I could just duct tape 'em to the chair and MAKE them eat!!!)...hee-hee

shades of gray

I am CEREALIOUSLY lacking in the color inspiration department!!! (and wishing for some Trix or Lucky Charms now after typing that...)

I have pocketbook DESIGNS thought out...

but not colorways or colorcombos or color... anything.

Which is incredibly odd since I THINK in color... techno color most of the time!

Any advice for me?  What colors are you thinking in this week-end?

Comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide (that's viewing things in shades of gray... help - QUICK!)...hee-hee

P.S. I have a chair to re-cover this week-end too... just so you don't think I'm TOTALLY crazy (like you would think that about me... *snicker*)
