Spaghetti dinner!

Charlies mom, Margaret, and Ethan were here for spaghetti dinner.
Ethan and Toby are very close and Toby can't get enough of Ethan when he is over, especially when he is sharing spaghetti with him! Too funny!

It really is lucky!!

Ok last night I wore my clover to the golden nugget casino, charlie wanted me to meet one of his sponsors "Poppy the pizza guys". He had a pizza wagon outside of Binions (old downtown vegas)where he is selling his pizza at, he will be there all weekend so go eat pizza and tell them "Infernomotorsports sent you"
Good Pizza!!
Anyway, we went into the golden nugget to have a cocktail and play some keno, I was playing 20.00 in a quarter keno machine and BAM! 1500 quarters, that equals 375.00!
So we went out and charlie bought some embroidered hats for his race team (125.00) and then we played more waiting for the hats to get done so I came home with 100.00 of it....

THEN....Friday morning Colleen, Pat k, Pat s, and I went to bingo at sam's town and colleen and I won on the same game and split a bingo for 125.00 each!!! Oh the fun never ends in this town!!!
I love my Lucky Clover!!

Luck be a lady or a clover!

I have been taking jewelry classes but only one or two a month, with work being slow as it is. I still need to be creative though so yesterday I took this class, we made a clover from a mold using silver art clay then we filled it with emerald green resin and lucky me it came out beautiful, I can't wait to wear it to Bingo!!

All you need is love...

and having a fabric artist for a friend is not too shabby either!!
I had this jacket that my sister gave me years ago, then I went to see Love show here in Vegas, bought this t-shirt, of course one washing and it could fit a 5 year I thought I will just sew it on to the back of the jacket, well I use to sew but not by hand and never clothing, I knew this needed an expert, Tanya agreed and just look at the beautiful outcome, she made a little quilt using some peter max fabric (yellow submarine look) put that as the binding, quilted little squiggles and hearts on the shirt part and attached it to the jacket...AWESOME!!!

I am going to use the jacket to house all my charms from this group of artists...Thank you Tanya!

Scrapbook Expo!

This is my haul from scrapbook expo, I bought the zutter bind it all to make books, a case for my cropadile, a see thru desk tote, and in the bottom of the photo are the 2 albums I made, one is for Briannes friend (Stephanie) who is getting married, the other is for me to highlight all my jewery friends I have met. Now I have an album for all my scrapping stuff, my desert newcomer stuff, and now my jewelry stuff!

Here is a photo from Stephanie and Justins album....

Here is the front page of my jewelry album, picture of me at jewelry class...

Here is a friend page from my jewelry album, thats Betty, she is a very kind person, I love this page! The blue box is for my journaling, I need to get started on that..I still need photos of some of the friends I have met, Debbie W, Jodi, Amanda, be on the lookout girls I will have my camera with me!!

There were about 150 women scrapbooking there and the shopping was great, Me, Mary N and Mary F, and Christy had a great time, I am so ready to go back and do it again!!

Oh I highly recommend the Ayres Hotel in Costa Mesa California, the restaurant was fantastic, I had a monte cristo sandwich that melted in my mouth, filet mignon with scrimp friday night, and the breakfast buffet each morning was wonderful! The rooms are plush and cushy, and very clean, staff was beyond

Get out there and enjoy the world, take a trip and explore, do what you love and love what you is too short to be unhappy!

Charmed I'm Sure!

I am in a charm swap with some artist/jewery friends, there are 11 of us. Our first swap was a couple months ago and they were fabulous, this time around we had a theme of Romance...lots of love went into are all my charms I have collected so far, I am trying to design a necklace to display them all as a charm bracelet is too much for my wrist. Our next swap theme is "wizard of oz" that is going to be fun!

Super bowl Sunday!

We are staying home and I am making carnitas tacos, I am betting 20.00 on the Steelers and Charlie is betting 20.00 on the Cardinals, so we have a real rival going on today!!
We will just relax and watch football!

I posted a new wine for february on the right hand column, check it out! I chose this wine for it's dark pink color and it is sweet for valentine's day but it has some chardonnay in it so it is not too sweet. Perfect to serve on Valentine's day!
