A Message From Your Friendly Neighborhood Monster

Hey there! If you have every wanted to meet a friendly monster, today is your lucky day. This guy is mega-friendly, and chatty, and curious, and persistent! I mentioned in passing- in passing mind you- that I was going to write a blog post about monsters. Well, ever since that day he has been asking me, "Is today the day? Is it monster blog time? Which monsters are gonna be there? Am I invited? Will there be cake?!" And on... and on... and on...

So guess what, folks?! Can I get a drum roll please? ............ Introducing, for the first time ever, little... orange... monsterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

"um... hi."

What?! For days on end he has been pestering and poking me, he has been chatting my ear off. Now that monster time is finally here all he can say is, "hi."??

Well, I'm sorry. I really thought he was going to fill all the time, I didn't even prepare a monster speech. I thought we'd just have this monster ramble on at you for a while so you could get the full experience. Instead, we got one word. I thought we were going to have an 8-minute monologue, but noooooo. Anyway, I guess I'll just wrap this up. I asked some of the other monsters for an interview and they just rolled around and roared.

I know! You could always check out some other monsters here at i only like monsters. Keep up with all the monster gossip and make new friends. If you like, you could scroll to May 10th and have a peek at my cactus zombie. Just sayin'

Needle Felting Makes Me Feel Alive!

It makes me feel alive because I stab myself all the dang time! These needles are sharp, and I know that. You'd think I'd learn, but you'd be wrong- because I can't seem to keep my paws out of the way. Just another night in the craft room. :)

Hi. I'm Tina, and sometimes I write letters to inanimate objects. Don't judge me! I see you there, Judgey McJudgenstein! You can just scoot right along. Ya hear?

Dear Basil,

I'm sorry to say I'm breaking up with you. Our relationship just wasn't working out. See, I wanted more from you besides your delicious leaves for my dinner. I also wanted a good listener, a bar-hopping buddy for Friday nights, and mutual understanding. You wanted... water. I'm sorry, but I just can't commit like that.

Nearly Two Years Later...

Well, what a difference a year makes. And what a greater difference two years makes, my friends. I took a blogging break around the time we found out my husband's job was being relocated. I've always been an Ohio girl, never living more than a couple hours from my parents. And I liked it that way, we didn't really want to move away from our family and friends. I was feeling like a zombie for a while. I was mad and sad, and feelin' bad, thinking 'bout the things that I never had. Oh wait, I'm bustin' out a little Salt-N-Pepa there.

Sooooo... jump to present day and we live in Georgia! It's not so bad, the area is lovely, and we get to go back to Ohio and visit every couple of months. I know it could be worse, which is why I'm not sitting here bitching about it. And if you think THIS is bitching, then you don't know me now, do you?

I didn't do any crafting for a while, which is very unlike me. So I had nothing to blog about, and a whole lotta, "Wahhhhhh wahhhhh, I don't like it!!!" doesn't make for a fun read. Catch my drift? But now I'm feeling better, I've got my new craft room nearly set-up, and I'm making all kinds of fun stuff again. So I feel like normal old Tina, and that's about that. So, if you missed me, come on back. And if you didn't... too bad! :D
