My Child had a Mullet

OK - it wasn't very bad, but the hair was getting long in the back (and on top too). So the little boy got his first haircut this weekend. I know it was needed. Trust me. It just broke my heart to part with something that was keeping him baby.
He behaved perfectly. I've heard stories so I was prepared for screaming, biting, crying, escaping, the works. He just stood there and played with the things in front of him and acted as though it was nothing out of the ordinary! I'm so proud!

I have owned the Kodak Easyshare 5300 printer for almost a year now. I must confess I love it, I love the price, the ease of use, and the fact that I have a tray loaded for printing photos at anytime. It's also an excellent print quality. There's just one thing that frustrates me to no end. I can't print on transparent paper with it. At least not easily. You see - they designed the printer for regular paper and photo paper, and that's it. So every time I tried to print on vellum for a craft project (I like to use transparent paper for several things) the printer told me a paper jam.
So I contacted Customer Service, tried all the updates possible and they told me sorry, it just doesn't work with transparent paper. How can they design a printer that's nearly perfect in every other way for the crafter and miss that one? I don't get it.
So my get around is to tape the vellum sheet to a regular piece of paper and print on it that way. I wish there was one printer that met ALL my needs that had the same ink prices as the Easyshare.

Remember This?

This site is no longer in use. You can see all this information and new posts at my new blog Maggie Muggins Designs.

So my other niece got a bed with bedding for her American Girl doll. Santa had a little bit of help on this one (ahem). Note the matching fabrics. Anyhow - Santa's helper discovered a doll bed that was an awesome price! Then the day before Christmas she took some measurements, a peek on the for ideas and spent a long time sewing the bedding from scraps she had to match. And by bedding I mean: mattress, pillow, pillowcase and quilt! I still can't believe how well it turned out and how well it all goes together. Santa sure keeps on top of things - matching fabrics and what not.

I honestly can't wait to have my own little girl to make things like this for.

My Husband has a Stalker

If you are reading this girl - you are even more of a stalker and a creep than I even thought. I have two words for you: Restraining Order. You started calling him up again before we even started dating and maybe he was nice enough to say hello, but it was so over. He stopped answering your calls. I mean - really when you call your ex and some girl answers his phone and says you have the wrong number do you get the hint? Or when he no longer answers it when you call? Or better yet never calls you back? Then do you get it?
Obviously not - so email is the solution right? He responds in kind that he's getting married, blah, blah, blah. There's a thought that perhaps, for the sake of friendship, it would be worthwhile to respond. After all, he was friends with your brother too. When he voices that thought, your friend emails him saying how upset you are and that he shouldn't get married because he's cheating on his future wife (who was completely aware of the whole situation). What the?! It's so completely obvious that he's moved on and yet I guess that doesn't register and you have "promptings" to email him not once, but twice on his wedding day!
So when your email is blocked by him and the messages are returned that wasn't enough either. I know. E-mails from you from other peoples addresses are still never read. He just deletes them.
By the way - I completely trust my husband - that's not why all contact has ceased. The reason is my husband is scared that you might show up on our doorstep one day still hoping for something. You're completely nuts.
I guess the lack of response is not enough though. Why do you care so much? Especially now that you are married and have a child. At least that what your brother has told him via e-mail. Why was he the one you called while having problems in Denver? Why did you lie to me about who you were on the phone just to speak with him? And now, after 3 years of no response whatsoever - why did you even think he would add you as his friend on Facebook? Certainly not because you think he wants to keep in touch. Haven't you got it by now?

Please stop stalking my husband.
