Lighten UP!

Hello Blogland!  Kara is BACK In Da HOUSE!!!

Though the title of todays post might lead you to believe Im talking about Christmas Lights....NOPE!
Its about the Nature of my Post!  I HATE having a "Downer" post...But i needed to get that out to all of you cuz i knew i could count on my SWEETEST Blogging FRIENDS for prayers...
So first, I want to THANK YOU ALL for all of your Comforting words, SWEET comments and Prayers!
My spirits are MUCH BETTER today!  Thank the Lord!!!  Kara NO LIKEY being in a Funk!  YUK!
I havent even been on my computer since Friday evening....I was CHECKED OUT!
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When I CHECK OUT...I go into a ZONE!  Sometimes its a creating mode, or a "Im gonna watch a stack of movies I LUUUUUURVE, so be QUIET and DONT bother me unless you are Bleeding"  mode....OR, Perhaps, a CLEANING HOUSE MODE!  I went into CLEANING mode FER SHIZZEL!  You shoulda seen me....My Hub just sat back and watched me Scurry around this house...NEVER SAT DOWN!  The Hub was in "Slooooow Moooooootion" mode but i had kicked it into Speed of Light Mode!

OH!  And speaking of LIGHT....The Christmas Tree Lights ISSUES...WILL NOT GO AWAY!!!!!
Last  week I showed you Toms Tree with a section of Lights out...fixed those..then, Last night...New section out...AND...My Main Tree...YEPPERS!  A Section out in there too!  But Im am OVER  IT! 
O-V-E-R  IT!   DUNZO!!!  No more messin with the trees!  AND DANGIT!  I SAID that the title of todays Post had Nutin to do with Christmas lights, and HERE I AM...Talkin bout those DANG lights again!
Im going to start a NEW trend....Christmas trees with NO LIGHTS!   HA!  Yeah right...The Designer OCD, OooooooCD, OCDeeeeeeeeeee will NOT allow that to happen!

ANYHOO!  So...I wanted to Lighten Up the MOOD here at my Blog...and found a couple of things while cleaning yesterday that did the trick for me and wanted to share with you all!  I mean YALL! Texas gal, nuff said  :0)
I am a Greeting Card collector...Not to keep, but if im somewhere and find Cards that make me literally Laugh out Loud....I buy em and keep em on hand for that LAST MINUTE, "Crapola...I forgot______ has a Birthday today and I dont have time to go to the store and get a card....so I go to the Handy Dandy Card VAULT!"...Does ANYONE else do that?
  LOVE IT!  This is what I found yesterday: 



Ooh Eem Gee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Are you Laughing or WHAT!  I laughed so hard, nearly tinkled my undies!
That is SOOOOOOOOOO how I have felt the last few days!!!
LOOOOVE  THIS!
cards from American Greetings, Just my Style


Ok!
I have to show a lil Pretty....this is a christmas arrangement I made for a friend whos tree colors are Lavender (Shes a Lavander FANATIC!) Ice blues, Silver...and just some Pastel, Whimsey VIBE!
Its SOOOOOOOOO HER!!!
CockaDooDee!!!
I hope she doesnt see this!!!



An angel from the top...
See that sweet lil Bird...How TWEET!

I used a Regular ( Year round, silk Hydrangea) in the arrangement...
Designer TIP: Not every  flower you use in Christmas needs to be a "Christmas" flower...
Its good to mix in some of the natural Elements in your Christmas Decor

The Butterfly is kinda Her THING!   LOVE butterflies!!!
Did you know Butterflies represent "New Beginnings"...
Just a lil Trivia for ya!


WARNING!!!
This image MAY CAUSE Dizziness!
WOWZERS!!  I got a lil dizzy lookin at that!   EEKK!


HELLERRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

I had Cleaning Projects like DIS going on ALL OVER DA HOUSE!

Uuuugggg!
Dont you DARE say a word about my Nightstand drawer!  I am VERY efficent and keep ANY and ALL things I might POSSIBLY need while in bed IN THAT DRAWER!

*My Medicine, Vitamins, Salene nose spray, 3 Foot Scraper, file THINGYS, A journal, My Bible, Gum???, My Camille Beckman Body Butter, 800 pens and Pencils, a Stapler, Nail FILES ( Fer Tha HOOTCHIE Nails!) , 2 Calculators (I STINK at math...so got 2 calcs incase I lose one), Address return labels, Deposit slips, Earphones, a Crossword Puzzel book, Map color pencils, Linen Spray, Mentholatum,  Nail Glue (Again for da Hoochie Nail that MIGHT get loose) , Drink Straws???,  Tweezers, A Back Massage Thingy (that NEVER gets used...Thanks HUB!)...Lets see...YUP!  That about covers it!
Holy SHNIKEES!

NEEDLESS to say...The Scurry of Cleaning I STARTED yesterday has Continued into TODAY!
I have a feeling that this cleaning "Project" is gonna be a bit like a TV miniseries!
WHAT WAS I THINKIN!!!???
I KNOW...Kara, CALL 1-800-Wwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
Oh...And ALL OF YOU are going to suffer through this with me...SMILE :-)
Put on your Good Tude!  (Tude=Attitude)



 And ANUTHA Funny Card so you might tinkle you undies with me :0)

Have a great day, I had to get some steroids for my sinuses again this week, couldn't taste or smell anything and that drives me CRaaaaaazy! But yay, now I can taste again, so come on over for a drinkypoo with me, I've been having Mimosas with breakfast (I can't help myself), did bacon and biscuits and gravy for brunch today! My diet MUST start in January - again!

I love your witty self ... the card is hysterical! And, I love the gorgeous arrangement you made! Oh, and thanks for sharing your bedside drawer. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who sometimes can't even open it because of all of the "stuff" in there! LOL. Happy Holidays !! xoxo

Hello Kara! What a sweet blog you have here! I have perused many of your posts and had a really fun time. So nice getting to know you!

Kindly, ldh

Laura Wilkerson said...

Kara, You're so crazy! I have a suggestion though, next time you get in the super lighten' speed, OCD, freakishly cleaning mood, just jump in the car and head on my way! I'm in need of some serious redos :)

Jemsmom said...

Haaaaaaaaa!!!!!! Those are freaking hilarious!!!!! I love it!!!! I need those for my best friend! She would get a kick out of them! I am having tree light issues also. I am so mad right now, I could scream!!!! I have to have lights on my tree on Christmas morning! Hubby better get crackin' on it! That arrangement is gorgeous!!!

NanaDiana said...

Glad you are back on the Happy Wagon...Ain't Prozac great? lol I am the same way..when I am in a funk about something I will start cleaning..and scrub and polish...it's definitely, definitely a sickness....However, MY nightstand drawer is neat because I just cleaned it out..thank you very much! I am down to 2 pencils and 2 pens and ONE crossword book and ONE Sudoko book...one journal and NO calculator because I am good at math...hahahaha...no seriously....I am...love numbers..lol

I hate those stinking pre-lit trees almost as much as I hate hair on men's backs..makes me want to yank them all out (get it? lights and hair)...yeah...never mind.

Your friend is gonna love that arrangement. I hope she isn't in Blogland cuz, honey, if she is there is no surprise element left here.

Hope your Dad is doing okay...let me know- Hugs-Diana

This is the first year I haven't had light issues! My 7-foot slim tree has over 2000 twinklies on it and the strands are wound in and out among the branches so they don't show. (anal moment from years back...) So when a strand goes out, I have NO idea where it starts or ends- you get the drift... I've had to cut a strand out and attempt tucking in a new strand on many an occasion. Yikes, that is work. So we are definitely sisters in the hood when it comes to lighting, Kara! Love your pretty gift for your friend. Gorgeous colors and cool mosaic mirrored bowl. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas- I'm going off the grid for a little bit. I have to clean, too!!!
