W W J D ?

Forget Jesus, What Would Judy Do?! With her day off today? One would think that she would be playing with paper and making fabulous creations but that doesn't seem to be happening.  But that is only because the few creations she has fussed with today have fallen flat on their faces. The day is still young yet though.

Here is a project from the other day that did not fall flat on its face. In fact, it stood up and pranced around proudly.

It's time for some hogs 'n kisses! Smootchie Smootchie Smoo!  And somehow I suddenly have a strange craving for a bacon, lettuce, tomato sandwich. Oops. I'm guessing that's not PC.

I haven't got time

Does anyone remember a commercial whose tagline was, "When you haven't got time for the pain?" The commercial was for some pain relieving remedy. The tag line cracked me up though. Like on occasion you're sitting around thinking to yourself: Oh hey, I have some extra time to kill. I guess I'll have some pain.
An acquaintance of mine recently asked me for my opinion about the shenanigans happening across America in the name of.... something. Racism? Revisionary history? Discrimination? Stupidity? Anyway, my answer was that I didn't have time for an opinion.

Which of course set this person off. How can I not have time or an opinion!? Well, because I'm living my life currently and it's a busy one. And also I knew voicing my opinion would then mean I'd have to hear this person's opinion and their opinion of my opinion and I didn't have time for that either.

However, since most of my readers are not from here ('Murica!) I'd like to hear what your opinion is of the situation. Even if you are from here, you can speak up.

I'll share mine and I apologize in advance if you were expecting something inflammatory. A little background first: when Trump was elected my buddy Ed said that he just knew he'd get us into a war. My thoughts on what is happening now: Hey, I'll bet Ed didn't know it was going to be a civil war.

The Fine Print: Not that anything going on in America right now is civil. And also, if you don't have an opinion but you are just sitting back munching popcorn and admiring the trainwreck, do tell. Funny thing about this card. It's from a Club Scrap kit called Hope. That seems to be in short supply right now. Gotta dash! I have some pain I need to schedule.

Oh my gosh! The whole day is gone. Just gone. And I can't even blame the catnip.

Happy Mail Monday

I know we all look so forward to Monday when I share what the nice mailman dude brought me. Check these beauties out--fun, fun, fun! I was so tickled by how much mail my friends bestowed on me this week.

The Fine Print: It's great to have talented friends!

Advice From Dio

Hi, I'm Dio and I'm gonna be your guest columnist today. As a Life Coach I kin give you sum excellent advice. Here is sum now: It is okay to be lazy, but sometimes you gotta move around a little bit so the vultures don't eat you.
See, the clouds were being rilly lazy this morning. I s'pose it is okay because dey were rilly buzy last making growls and lights and rainings. But if they don't git up soon, vultures might eat them.
My mom made this pretend pickture of me. It's called an Ay Tee See. She made a whole bunches of them.

Suck It Up Saturday

In this Facebook group I'm in, a bunch of stampers are trying to come up with crafting related names for every day of the week so if you have a class or a blog feature on Wednesday you can call it something fun and quirky. Example: Washi Wednesday featuring washi tape.

I'm totally useless because I can't get past things like Margarita Monday (drink themed projects anyone?) and Suck it Up Saturday (put on your big girl panties and craft!).
I finally managed to contribute with Fancy Fold Friday, so maybe I'm not totally useless. More like 98.8% useless.
This Z-fold card might not really be "fancy" but it is a different fold from the norm. I mean it's pretty good considering it ain't Friday no more (and Thank God for that!).
