A big ugly Yellow Monster came and ate my monkeys this morning....leaving me in tears. It had big ugly red eyes on the front and the back....I'm telling you it was really ugly. I was minding my own business and the next thing I know....my monkeys are GONE! You can imagine I have spent most of my day sad and crying. I know you all expected more posts on Checkers Open House....and they will come....once I compose myself.
Just look how sweet and innocent those IHAN co-worker monkeys looked right before their capture
They are so precious and sweet.....and now they are in the belly of that big Yellow Monster with red eyes.
One thing I know for sure is that Yellow Monster will be felling ill and will likely throw them back up into my driveway and I can't wait....know what I mean?
One fun thing has happened during this Yellow Monster fiasco that actually lifted my brown-out....check out what I just found on my doorstep.....
You have no idea how happy I was to see the Martingale 2012 Award Winning Quilts Calendar. I know...to you it may be a small thing and you may be wondering how something so small could lift my heavy heart.
What you don't know is that I love calendars....it's true...I do. It is a big deal every year to decide which wall calendar I'm going to use to keep all those important dates and appointments....after all I have to look at it several times a day and I only want to look at something I absolutely love.
I can't show you every page....well...until next December...LOL...silly humor...but remember I'm in a brown-out and you have to give me some slack today. It was difficult choosing just one picture to show you....I chose April....it was done by Pat Holly of Ann Arbor Michigan. She won the Maywood Studio Master Award for Innovative Artistry...Sponsored by Maywood Studio...Original Design (copied from the description on the Award Winning Quilts Calendar so I would get it all correct :). This photo has lifted my heart and on a day like today....that really says something!!!
Are you a calendar lover too? What is your criteria for choosing a new calendar for the upcoming year? Do give calenders as gifts? (I do...cuz I love them so much). I want to know if there are more calendar lovers out there like me....and if you want to get ahead of the game....check out the special price IHAN has on the Martingale Award Winning Quilts Calendar for 2012....think you can order several for holiday or guild gifts...or just spoil yourself....we all need to do that every once in a while...and there are no calories in this years calander...LOL....remember now...you are giving me some slack today!!!
