MME = Meanest Mom Ever

Since when do 12 year olds want tattoos?
When did they start to think they can bargain with their parents?

Who the hell do they think they are?

So the conversation went something like this ....

12 yr old:  ‎:B  thats what my tounge looks like ... a line in the middle and a butt at the end ... iff only it had a hole in the middle then it would look like a butt with a crack and a holee BAHAHHAHAHHA!!!!!! i wish it had a hole in it ...  DD:

(ps ... MME = Meanest Mother Ever)

MME:  I think I puked in my mouth a little

12 yr old:  hahhahha!!!.....but lets get serious......I WANT A HOLE IN MY TONGUEEEE!!!

                                                             4REALS MOMMA 

MME:   I thought you had made this major OMG change into pink & glitter & all that?

12 yr old:  that dont meann i have to give up wanting tattooo's and percings......and i found out you can pay someone to come to yr house to give u a tattooo at my agee;DDDDDD

                                              ......u think i could get an owl on my fooot?(:

MME:  when you are 18 I think you can

12 yr old:  oh mom please, you know you wanna let me so that you look like the coolest momma evr, and you know how much i will freaking lovvvvevevevevevev you if you do say yes so you mide-as-well say yess.

New Pieces ...

Matching  Peace  Sign  Earrings


Like most people I adore music.
I am not prejudice about music for the most part.
I listen to a variety of music.
I find it to all be very inspirational.
Each song in its own way.

My favorite time of the day to listen to music is mornings.
I get up & turn it up loud.
One morning I might get up & scream with Metallica.
The next it might be a fun spunky Pink.
Then a good dose of Miranda Lambert.

I'm not a huge fan of classical or jazz.
I will listen to it.
But not on purpose.

Right now I am loving the fun sound of The Band Perry.
Fun playful music is usually what inspires me the most.

And of course badass women songs.
Thus.... Pink & Miranda.
Both tough kickass women.

One of my favorite things to do is get out in the garage
Turn up the music
And make jewelry.
Love it.
Me in my world.

I also love listening to music with my kids.
I love dancing & being crazy with them.
Can I dance?
Why hell no.
But I love to dance so I do.

My kids love it too.
They get a good laugh.

What music inspires you?

I Wanna Be Famous ...

Here I sit yet once again daydreaming ...
Of what?
Being famous of course.
I should totally be famous!!
I would be a good famous person.
People would either love me or hate to love me.
I'm funny dammit.
I think so.
And 'I' am all that matters right?

Ok so I know I am not famous singer/actress material.
I'm cute enough to be.
But I want to be famous for something else.
No - not for running through town naked!
Hell no!
Not until I get my tummy tuck & enhancement!
Even then I think not!

I don't want to discover some amazing pre-historic animal either.
Hell no!
I have too many critters to give a shit about that!

I want to be famous for my jewelry!
Hell YES.
I want people emailing me everyday begging me to make them a one of a kind.
I want to be so busy that I have to QUIT my job.
(not that I don't love my job - I do)

So yes I do-
I want to be famous.

Ok so really if I could actually sing ...
I'd totally want to be a famous country singer.
But I am a realist & totally know that all I'd be famous with singing is the coyotes.
But hey - I still sing as loud as I can get away with when I am creating!!!

PS I Love You ...

Mushrooms are Beautiful

Ok so first off ...
I know I have totally sucked for the past week or so.
I know this.
And just when I was getting better!

So I did my first treasury on Etsy tonight.

What was my theme you ask?
Well ...
Mushrooms of course.
I just think they are so lovely.
I know fungus right?
And so?
They are whimsical lil' things really.
When I look at 'just' a mushroom
I don't see the beauty
But when I look at it like in these pictures they seem so mysterious.
Some thing about them becomes magical
Something beautiful.
In photography they become an amazing focal point of photos.
I haven't seen a mushroom photo I didn't like.
This is one of my favorites-
Because MY own brother took it?
But more likely it is the angle at which he chose to take it.
I know right?
How cool is that?
Of course there is also the fact that when I think mushroom
I think Alice In Wonderland.
And WHO doesn't just love Alice?
A fantasy world that can only happen in our dreams.
Can you imagine being that little girl?
Following a rabbit of all things
I would totally follow such a handsome rabbit!
And what a trip she had.
She saw such amazing things.
The Mad Hatter of course never looked better than this
Johnny Depp makes everything look better!
And so these little fungi umbrellas still amaze me
To be so ugly but yet be so beautiful.
You know - there are many things in this life that are just that.

So ugly but yet so beautiful.

My High School Sweetie

Yes I had one.
Don't laugh ... you did too!
And the best part about mine - he is still my sweetie!

So yes I have a story to tell.

Long long ago in a land far far away
This young girl with huge hair and very large red glasses
Spotted a handsome prince across the way
The young girl upon seeing this beautiful creature
Knew she had to be his wife.

So she did what any other 16 year old girl would do
Called on her friend to go tell him he was cute
And he did what any other 16 year old boy would do
Tried to act really cool around this young girl

And so it began ....

Yes this is how I met my high school sweetie.
And YES I had huge hair & glasses.
I was sooo cute!

We both lived in homes
Me in a girls home that was affiliated with his boys home
I was from Oklahoma
He from Texas

We started this dream July 1990
He & I were to graduate in May 1991
We lived miles apart -
Gosh I don't remember exactly how long that drive was
But it seemed like it took us days to get there.

I remember driving to Boys Ranch with all the girls
We would go for different events
And all the girls were going for different reasons
To get out of our hell hole
To be in different atmosphere
But me?
I was going to see my future husband
And the drive sucked!

So then we'd finally get there for a dance or whatever it was
And then the wait for my future husband to show up would start
Oh that would be a killer too.

We would finally be reunited
We would have our dance
Or whatever event we drove all that way for
(we personally were told constantly - NO PDA)
Then I would cry & start the drive back to no mans land.

But we wrote everyday!
Ok almost everyday. 
We were soo young
And sooo in love!

So after a full year of being crazy about each other
And making many plans for after graduation
The day came & went
I came home to Oklahoma
He stayed in Texas

The time came & went
We just grew apart
He went on with his life
And me with mine.


But we never forgot.
Through the years he would find me
I would try to find him
We would talk
I would cry

We never hung up with telling each other we loved each other
We always knew one day we would come back together
Even if it was when we were old & grey.

Well in 2005 he called me.
After we hung up I cried.
For a long time.
I needed this beautiful creature back in my life.
I couldn't wait for years for another call.
I couldn't.

So I called him back the next day & said I don't want to wait anymore.
I love you.
You love me.
Marry me!

Yes I asked him to marry me.

Well here we are in 2010.
His heart lives with me now.
And forever.

I never knew love could be so amazing.
I never knew I could be so happy.
And I am.

So this fairytale has yet to end.
It was only on hold.
I can still remember the way his kiss felt the first time.
I still feel that thrill everytime he kisses me.
I am happy.

PS: We still have all those letters we wrote!
They make us laugh so much!

Do You Go Green?

Ok so I love the whole GO GREEN concept.

I don't do as much as I can for saving out planet -
But I am thoughtful of it.
It is something I would love to teach my children.
I want to teach them by doing & let them learn by example

I do love finding amazing old things & turning them into amazing new things.
I love seeing what people can come up with using somone else's nothing.
And all along saving our enviroment.

Going to work for Coca-Cola was cool for me
They are huge advocates of recycling.
They too Go Green often.
Have you seen their ever so cool  recycled soda bottle t-shirts?
I don't have one yet - but I shall!

Imagine that - a t-shirt made from a soda/water bottle!

I have made many crafts with recycled materials.
But never my jewelry.
I haven't figured too much out about that yet.
But I want to learn.
So I do a lot of reading about it.
A lot of searching to see where to find what I need.

How cool would a piece of jewelry made from yesterdays style
turned into todays be?

Oh so this leads me to my want list for Christmas! 
More tools!!!
And I have no idea how to tell my honey I want him to spend over $200 for a tool I want!
And I want a better camera!
And ... oh I don't know I am sure there is more that isn't coming to mind!
Tee - Hee!!

And I totally think I deserve them all since I am going

Yes I am still going along my path of quitting.
I have been a bit of an evil bitch a few times.
But I think for the most part I have been pleasant -
Well considering.
I am also being very careful with eating habits right now also.
I don't want to go from not being able to breath because I smoke to
I can't breath because I am too heavy.
I have been there before & done that.
I weighed over 200lbs-
Not only was I unable to breath well
I was always hurting somewhere.

Ok I ventured way off there - but that is my update!

So do you try to Go Green?
And if you do - What do you make?
Where do you get your supplies?
I would love to hear about your GREEN!!
