John Mayer Concert

For the last 2 years I have been boarding a Carnival Cruise Ship that had been renamed the Maycraft Carrier. Mostly everyone that has boarded the boat has boarded for one reason and one reason only JOHN MAYER!!!!

Well since this year due to his new album dropping there was no Maycraft Carrier this year so we had to settle for his concert at the Verizon Center. John Mayer is a great performer and when he’s on the boat he’s just one of us but with better accommodations LOL!.

Since I am part of his fan club we got the first chance to buy concert tickets a week before they went on sale to the regular public. I knew I had to get good seats for my little cousin so I got up turned on my computer and at 10am sharp I was ordering concert tickets to see John Mayer with special guest Michael Franti & Spearhead.

Here are a few pictures from the concert last night!

Here is my cousin Sierra's reaction when they started to introduce John Mayer:

I WON!!!!

OMG!!!!! I really can't believe I won the contest that I entered over at

I was on and checking out to see if I got any new comments on my layout “Just Being Me!” and I saw people saying congratulations on winning and thought everyone had lost their mind and decided to go over to the site and see if maybe I was missing something. My prize is the My Little Yellow Bicycle’s entire “Sweet Love” collection

I was actually not going to enter the contest as I was doing the layout on the last day for submission and my mind was really not into it. You would think with all of the snow in my area I would just scrap until my hearts content but the snow just has my mind all flustered and they keep talking about more.

I do have to spend a special thanks to my cousin Robin (loves2create) as it was her sketch #112 that I used as a guide for this layout.

I did the following layout for a contest over at Swirlydoos called “Bundle of Lovin Contest”

This is my take on my cousin’s (love2create) 2nd sketch. Hope you like it.

I am so sick of snow. Today was my first day out of the house since Friday February 5th. That is when our 1st big storm of 2010 hit and then before we could recover from that storm we got more on Tuesday into Wednesday Morning. I am lucky and can work from home but I was sooo glad to be able to get out of the house today even if it was to go to the grocery store and stock up on more food since they are saying we are supposed to get a clipper storm on Monday.

Here is a picture of my neighborhood Wednesday evening when we went out to start shoveling.

This is a picture of the HUGE icicle that is on the side of my house.

This icicle is at the front of my house. We tried knocking it down today by hand and only half came down the other half my husband had to knock at with the shovel for a bit.

I am thinking I need to move to somewhere they have never heard, or seen actual snow except on the TV screen.

My First Card!

I FINALLY did it I made my first card and I am soooo proud of how it turned out. The idea of making a card for some reason was just freaking me out for some reason. Well this morning I just said I would do it and I did.

Sentiment on the Inside of the Card reads: As we grow together, as we continue to change with age, there is one thing that will never change: I will always keep falling in love with you


We are in the middle of our second big storm of the winter season which the news people are referring to as the “SUPER STORM”. We are expected to get 18 to 24 inches of snow before it is all done and over with. I have to say I am soooo done with snow and they are calling for more on Tuesday into Wednesday and on they are showing snow for next Saturday also.
