Goddess Dollz ornaments

I made Christmas ornaments for my favorite girls this year.  As usual,  this idea came to me in the middle of the night so that I could spend every waking moment up to the party deadline finishing them! I showed up a half hour late, covered in glitter with the glue still drying, but they turned out pretty cool.

and now back to our regularly scheduled...

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted anything!  My excuse(s) are summertime and working a lot.  Quite frankly, if there is a choice between pool time and anything's pool time every time! 

I had the best summer on record this year: made a little more money than usual and reconnected with old friends and found some really fun new ones too! 

Now that things have slowed a bit, I was trying to figure out a clever way to jump back into blogging and I think I may have hit on it.  See if you can figure out what I'm trying to say.

It was a beautiful and hectic summer, so I got a little 
on my blogging. 

Now that the
is closed,

I can get back on
on my blogging

A clever idea...

...blatantly stolen from the Naples Botanical Gardens! 

My parents own a condo in Naples, FLA and we usually go visit over Spring break.  This year was no exception.  My mom volunteers at the Naples Botanical Gardens as a docent ( so we went through their beautiful gardens.  In the children's garden they had what I  thought was a cute and clever use for old purses...

I took a picture of them knowing that at some point I would totally rip off the idea and use at home!  I found a couple of purses at the local ARC Thrift Store and here is my version:

This is right after I potted them.

and this is where they ended up hanging-one of the front porch,

and one on the back deck

I thought they turned out so good, I'm going to make many more! 
Note to self: use potting soil because real dirt gets REAL heavy!

Greeley Stampede - 10 days of fun!

Whew!  The Greeley Stampede finished up on July 4th with a monsoon during the Gloriana show and fireworks postponed until Monday July 5th...what a ride! Here are the rest of the highlights from our 10 days 'living" at the Stampede:

Stampede time!

The 88th annual Greeley Stampede gets underway TODAY! ( Our radio station ( will be there for the next 11 days for all the fun, carnival, rodeos, concerts and food on a stick you can imagine!  If you are in northern Colorado between today and July 4th, make sure to stop by Island Grove park and see us!

Yesterday we set up our mobile Stampede Studios-another beautiful 5th wheel from Loveland RV Service (  Honestly, this RV is way to good for us! Here are some photos of our home away from home:

Summer 2010 continues...

Our much anticipated Blues concert came to fruition last night-107.9 The Bear presents Kenny Wayne Sheperd with special guests, The Blues Dogs. 

We  filled the Thunder Mountain Amphitheater in Loveland, Colorado with a crowd of 3000 of our closest friends.  A gorgeous night with the Rockies as our backdrop and an amazing sunset just for good measure!  The Blues Dogs, who just the week before kicked off the Greeley Blues Jam, ( got the crowd going and then Kenny Wayne Shepard and band kept it going for nearly two hours.  Fantastic show!

Big crowd!

Time flies by

Since last I posted, I've completed 6 graduation videos,  cleaned my house from top to bottom for grandma and grandpa's arrival, got the lawn and yard spiffed up  and looking pretty (thanks Bert, mom and dad for all the mowing digging, planting...), planned and pulled off probably the best party I've ever thrown (thank you weather Gods, my family and co-hosts for such awesome help!), watched my son graduate, got some relatives together that hadn't been together for a while and a little extra work thrown in just for good measure!
Here are the highlights:

smile, work it, let see it...good!

A company email was sent out explaining that all of us radio personalities had to have a professional photo done so our mugs could hang in the lobby...ugh, really?  One of the reasons we are in radio is that no one can see us!  Unlike TV, we don't have to look good to sound good and we can wear our jammies and bunny slippers and no one is ever the wiser (unless there's the dreaded web cam).  There is also an old saying, "got a face for radio," which (politely) means you don't have to be model perfect to do the job...whew! 

But being presentable out in public is part of the job, so off we go to Harper Point Studios in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Turns out we clean up well and really not a bad looking group of people, so here are a couple of pictures from the shoot:

Fun with strawberries

yum! Not sure if you can tell in the pictures, but the strawberries are HUGE!
I love the Dr. Seuss mountain of whipped cream
