Forever Young Part 2 & Happiness!

October 5, 2011 at 8:39 pm 7 comments

Hello again! Today is another in my mini-series using the Forever Young set. This is a cuter card with a different feel. I did feel the poor girl (assuming its a girl- hard to tell with a silhouette!!) needed jazzing up a little so fashioned her a quick red dress. She looks a little warmer- poor thing with the wind blowing a gale at the moment too!!

I’ve added some glitter to one of the hearts- always reminds of those frosted grape things that get paraded about at Christmas. I remember making ‘frosted glasses’ with egg yolk and sugar for a dessert yonks ago; wasnt a pretty picture!

I picked up the bowl I’d painted today. I’ll take a pic of it and post it with one of the other cards. I love it- makes me happy. Speaking of happy, theres been just a little too much hilarity in our house today with one of my littlies friends for tea. Will was having so much fun that his face was bright red. Wish a bright red face indicated happiness; Last time my face was bright red was this week when Will and I were doing ‘The Biggest Loser’ on the Wii. It would coincide with the postman ringing the doorbell and me answering it looking flustered and sweaty. He’d obviously seen our exercising efforts through the window and smirkingly asked ‘been exercising then?’. I muttered feebly ‘something like that’ and shut the door quick. Shame we can’t all glow! Is that asking too much?

I’m procrastinating. The kitchen has got itself dirty all by itself again. No matter how clean I get it, it just spirals downwards. We were in the kitchen yesterday preparing a sandwich and Will was less than impressed that I’d forgotten to buy tuna. ‘But why did you not buy tuna?

‘Because I forgot too, I’m sorry’.

‘But why did you  forget?’

‘I just did, Mummy forgets things. I’m afraid I’m not perfect’.

‘Mummy, you are perfect’.

‘(laughing) I’m really not!’

‘Mummy I love you and you are perfect’.

Priceless! So not true- but cute all the same. So glad I can have my heart warmed like that. Super glad I’m not stuck in a smelly office missing little snippets of  his conversation. Here’s to staying at home (if you can)!!

See you soon (after I’ve purchased some Tuna!)
