Love at First Sight....

Ahhhh we all remember it don't we...? The pure joy and exhilaration of seeing it for the first time....that little tingle up the spine and the little shiver of delight....come on you all know what I am talking about....Yep that's right the beloved PARCEL....ooooooh just saying it out loud makes me gush!!!!

I love getting a parcel so much I just have to share with you all my complete and utter fulfilment and joy......ahhhhhh

Even down to the ordering it gives me a little thrill as I know very soon it will be mine all mine!!! you know that it will only be a matter of days until you are together. You wait in anticipation every day, mine is a little expection of afternoon delight yours may be a morning surprise. My ears prick up around that time of day just incase the doorbell rings and you can have that little trist that you have been longing for. Some days its a disappointment and you have to go on, trying not to let it get you down knowing that maybe tomorrow will bring the pleasure that you so hoped for.

Then it happens.....gasp.....the doorbell rings, you walk towards the door trying to be calm and not let them see the excitment they bring, you fall over the no?.... okay that's just me then....can you see that fluorescent shirt sparkling in all its glory through the little obscure window beside the door, is it yellow and reminisant of your 80's days.... Your heart beats faster, you know this is open the door trying to look demure and not the dishevelled mess of a wanton women that you have become since hearing that doorbell....then.........shit!!! It's one of those horrid saleschildren on a working visa from god knows where selling the promise of fabulous telephone calls, but you are definitely still with your normal provider you just have to sign blah blah blah.......

Oh the disappointment......the saddness......the go back to what you were doing and try to focus and not become an absolute disappointed mess.....then...oh what was that.... the doorbell again....could it be.....could it be......shit the stupid cat!!!........YES YES YES!!!!! It's him the man who delivers the promise of that special moment that pure exhilaration you are going to feel very soon........

and you know doesn't matter that he smells like a homeless man that has been living on the local park bench for a decade....he is your knight in shining armour (or fluro yellow, whatever the case may be), this moment is what you have been longing for.....all you have to do is sign that stupid screen thing that never works and never looks like your signature what the hell is with those anyway, mind........... have what you desire in your hot, sweaty hands....ahhhhhh the smell of the cardboard package brings a little shiver up the base of your spine. You get the scissors and cut the tape to free that much longed for item open it up and there it is. You breathe in the exquisite scent until you almost pass out, you stroke it every so gently letting it know that it now belongs to you. Ahhhhh it is everything you had hoped for an more you spread it out on the bed to get a look at it in all it's glory then you.......

Dive on it like a woman possessed rolling in that paper like a physico, rubbing yourself all over it, sniffing it and ......oh.....what......You all do come way....admit it......don't leave me hanging here......oh.....really? don't......its just me?.................................. {extremely long silence}

Hahaha ha ha...hah...well I was just kidding....of course I don't do that.....who does that!!.....weirdo's......haha I was just saying....some other

.....Well this is usually where my husband will step in and say he wished he got that response at the front door and that I would do that to him on the bed......Ha I then say, well if I dressed up like a tank with turrets and.... stuff and walked around house going boom boom, then I would also get that response from him....TOUCHE!!! He quickly shuts up and lets me get back to my {cough cough} work!!! And yes I am a gaming widow, oh but thats a whole other story don't get me started.........

I have been a friend of Mr Facebook now for about a year as a professional business women...yeah yeah laugh it up everyone, well I have to put something for my occupation when I visit the Doctor. I was never really much good at communicating with Him from a personal view as I had minimal friends, which he frowned upon, and planted gardens and owned pets that died from malnourishment....awwww I hear you no I am fine I survived the loss of my dear hamster and came to terms with the 5 friends I had, one of which was my husband (Yes he does count!!!)

We were far more compatible from a business perspective after we ironed out some of our problems at the start. All I can say is thank goodness my friend Jessie was there to help guide me in the first few temultuous months of our relationship (me and Him), even though she was probably cursing under her breathe at my complete stupidity when it came to the simplest things that he would require and I could just not grasp. I must admit I felt like I was still quite young before he and I became business associates! He aged me quite a bit and I felt like I was like my father who could never quite figure out the VCR machine and I would always insert the tape and press play for him. Jess was now my button pusher! God love her!!!

Nevertheless I have survived and have been a friend of His for quite some time now. I do find Him to be a very frustrating character as he has been quite difficult to work out. I find him quite a pain in the neck at times, very time draining as he is very needy and just when I think I have figured him out he changes like a chameleon, only to mess me up again for the next few months.

He arouses emotions in me that are both good and bad. He makes me feel good because he likes me alot and then makes me feel sad because some of his like disappears. He makes me feel special, but also gets angry at me and at times can be very judgemental! He also thinks that he is alway right, but I tend to disagree!

We have a very tricky relationship him and I. Often my mood is guided by his mood. Sometimes I just have to walk away from him for a while as I rely on his reaction a little to much but then his allure and charm makes me want to come back for more......

His friendship is important to me, but I struggle to do the right thing by him at times. I try my best but sometimes we just do not get along.

I guess what I have figured out from our friendship is that although we have a love hate relationship I cannot let him go as he is very important to me, but I have to put into perspective what he has to say, or not say, and not be guided by his thoughts all the time.

He may be important, but I am more important and I need to be confident within myself and be okay with me and let him be Him and know that his opinion is not always the right one, whereas mine always is!!!! Yes it is!!! Just ask me and I will tell you....

The Humble Blog

So I'm trying to figure out how to blog. Do you talk about yourself, what you are doing, what frustrates you....?

I really should read some other blogs I guess and get some ideas, but I barely have time to write in my own blog!! This should not be an excuse should it, there are some amazing people out there who I really should learn more about,...this will go on my to do list...I promise.

So with this blog I am going to ask a question....Do other crafty people out there get asked the secrets to their beautiful creations????

I have had quite a few emails recently wanting to know this exact question. I am having a delimma about it though.

Do I tell them and risk that I am no longer able to create and onsell my creations and have to go out in the big wide world and get an average job without as much satisfaction? Or do I keep my dirty little secrets to myself because it has in fact taken some time for me to figure it all out myself without help from anyone as I think half the fun of creating is discovering the joy of how it all goes together.

I had this same dilemma while working full time in an Art Store. The frantic Mum would come in with an assignment that their child had to do, or better yet the Easter Bonnet (one of my favourites). I would go through all of the things they could do, offer a pattern that would have been drawn by myself or another staff member and told them all they needed to do only to be confronted with "Can't you do it for me"????? I would then have to reply that I did indeed work in an Art Store but unfortunately I just sold the ingredients, so to speak, to put together the item, I could not make it for them. Thoughts would go through my head like...would you go into a dress store like Sussan and when they didn't have your size you would then ask the sales assistant to make it for you?? I don't think so......

Mmmmmm, so after much deliberating I have decided to compare my situation with good old Colonel Sanders....what are you talking about woman I hear you say.....well....if you were a chef and decided you would like to make good old KFC at home there is no way that you could walk in and ask for his secret herbs and spices!!! Colonial Sanders would be destroyed and then there would be no more KFC as everyone would know how to cook his awesomely oily and truely sickening chicken....True????

So to cut a long story short I have decided to keep my "secret herbs and spices" to myself, so that I can continue to do what I love as a wonderful career. A career which keeps me at home to be with my children when they come home from school everyday and also to keep me out of Retail Sales where I used to get asked if we sold toothbrushes in an Art Store and a favourite from a good friend of mine who also worked in the same Art Store..."do you sell dirt"........

Believe me I am a much better person not being asked those kinds of questions everyday, ask my husband he will swear to that fact!!! God love him LOL!!!

PS: If I was not here doing what I do, who would infact clog up your facebook posts with numerous bird creations....think about it!
