He is an US Citizian

Well today was one of joys and sadness. My sister has wait 15 years for this and we didn't even get to witness it. They sent letters out with instructions and they plainly said that if you were family or friends of the application you were to arrive 1 hour after they arrived to see the ceremony. Well when we got there they would not let us in and Jose was already in the court room starting the swearing in process. The people in charge said that the letter was wrong and there was not anything they could do about it. I feel so sorry for my sister and the kids as this was a VERY big day for them. We were allowed to go in and take pictures of Jose. He was so beaming and proud. As were we all. Then Mom and Dad treated us all to lunch. I am so proud to be able to call Jose an American!

The coolest thing is that tomorrow will be Jose and Susan's 15th anniversary of their civil ceremony.

Horses for a Cause

Here are some of the horse that local artist have done to be auctioned off for different organizations. We had a fun day out looking and photography them.

Twitter Site

I set up a Twitter account over a month ago and have done much to it. But it is easier to post those short blurbs there when they come to mind. So here is the link to my twitter site (you can also look up mrwilkerson) and you might want to watch it. I will be posting my random things there. I am so sure that all of you are just dying to have another place to read my ramblings. So come and follow me and let me know that who are so I can follow you.

Two very special friends will be opening up an Internet store called RockCandy(a clever play on their names Roxi and Candice) on August 1st. They will have the coolest things for all of you who love doing ALTERED ARTS and other types of ART. They have many things that you can't find elsewhere. I was lucky enough to get to see and use several items that they will have. I even already have a Christmas gift done using their vintage animal college sheet. They have college sheets, vintage buttons by the shot glass, small glass bottles, metal embellishments, vintage die cuts and many one of a kind items etc etc... I think you get the picture. So mark your calenders to check this awesome store out on August 1.
I am just blessed to be among such great ARTIST and FRIENDS!!!

Let me "TEASE" you

Here is a "tease" of the next four GREAT plates from Artistic Outpost for 2008. As many of you know this is the week of Summer CHA and even though the company is not going there in person to showcase their wares and see all of the great new and exciting products. They wanted to let everyone see what they have coming for the rest of this year. To be among the first to know about the new plates and the "Sneak Peek" specials by joining their mailing list.

As you can see by this TEASER they have GREAT new images coming. If you are like me your mind is already creating new projects for them. This is very easy to do with these stamps.

So take some time today and visit Artistic Outpost and join the mailing list to make sure you are among the first to get your hands on these plates and the great "SNEAK PEEK" specials. (I know that I love specials and all of my friends do too.)

Okay I finally bought it. I was at a friends yesterday and got to use her Cuttlebug. I became addicted. Then today Michael's just made me go and buy it. They gave me a 40% off coupon and they also let me use the 15% off total purchase one too. When they finished ringing me up I paid a whole 22 bucks for this GREAT little toy. To really top of the great bargains for the weekend I found all 24 of the Fiskers texture plates for less than 10 bucks on Friday. So came home last night and googled to see if they would work with the Cuttlebug and when I found out they would it was another reason to buy it. All I had to do was buy a silicon oven mat and cut to size of the temple lay it on the "A" board, lay my paper down, place the template and the cover "C" run it thru the machine and walla embossing done. I am sold and now I will be embossing to my little heart is content. I always liked the embossed look but hated doing not any more.

Blog Quote

I was just checking out Tim Holtz's new stamps on Stampers Anonymous and OMG there was the saying from my blog on a stamp. I must be on the cutting edge if Tim has it as a new stamp. I will have to order it since I am using it on a swap for next month. He just made my life easier.

I just wanted to take few moments to reflect on what it means to get to live in this great country. It means that I get to get up every morning and have many choices that I get to make. Like what church I want to attend, where I work, what store I want to shop at, etc.........This brings my thoughts to all of those in the past, present and future that have given me this right by serving in our Military and protecting this great country. I am for one who at times take this for grant it and know that I shouldn't. So while you are enjoying your friends and families today. Say a little Prayer and Thank You to all who allow us these privileges we have.
