20 Loads of Laundry Later...

And I'm still alive! It is so nice to have a washer and dryer...no more dragging the kids to the laundry mat to wash 2 weeks worth of clothes at a time. LOL....I can't lift it, so I have to slave drive the kids! That's when having 3 comes in handy! I know, I'm a mean ole Mom!

~We now have front loaders~ you shoulda seen all of us, Otis included watching the first cycle go Around and Around...... LOL. It's the little things in life! Hahaha

I have been working on a special gift for a friend, so I thought I show you a quick peek...Any guess as to what it's going to be? I can't tell ya yet.....don't worry, as soon as she sees it, She'll know~and she'll guess the right answer.......Maybe she'll keep it a mystery, too? LOL


LMAO.....So, You thought I was done with the pineapples, huh?? Not yet. :) Cora has her's.....and Chris, don't worry~I have a set, set aside with your name on it. This next picture of what I'd like to giveaway...Yes! My first blog giveaway.........

Here's how this is going to work.....If you'd like to receive this Pineapple Polymer Clay Dollhouse dish set......Leave me a comment letting me know you want to enter. On April 3rd....I will put all the names into a hat, and pick a winner. Here's the catch.....If you win, You must do the same......Make a gift and Do a giveaway! Kinda like Paying it forward.....Anyone want to play??


Next, we have a picture of JD's casualties...I didn't realize he'd broken a few the other day........This just goes to show that Sculpy can be very fragile! The teapot is missing the knob on the top, and the 2 pots are missing a handle..


OK *Please excuse my dust bunnies, they keep me company.......So. I forgot to show you this the other day. My oldest picked these up at the dollar store. I want to use the hair dryer trick to see if I can't get the doors off the one on the right...Both will probably get repainted at some point. Good looking out Drew! (Yes! That's the cover to the Big Love Season One DVD on the left!~ I dunno why, but I love this show!!!!!)


*Currently watching My Fair Lady.

And speaking of movies....Mercedes recently asked me What my all time favorite movie is....and well I replied with a long list. I can't just chose one. I watch them every day, Yes.....it's my guilty pleasure. When me and the bf first got together I was bed ridden for a while, so our dates consisted of buying a movie, and cooking a meal at home. And here 5 years later, we have one heck of a collection. I love having them....but they sure are an eye-sore. In my other life, they'd be covered up by long curtains or something.....and, no, I've never counted them....

When I go tmy first microwave (I think they'd just been invented LOL!) my flatmate and I sat watching it go round too! WOW! What a movie collection!
I have those same cabinets from the $2 shop here. You need to put them in the microwave to soften the glue. I usually give them 30 seconds at a time on high. Then cut out the parts you don't want with a craft knife. They get quite hot and the paint usually blisters so you'll have to repaint them.

Darn I forgot to add. I do this with the Michael's hutches tho never tried it on dollar stuff - try the microwave instead. Works great to loosen the glue.
