Hipping into Thursday!

Hip Hop Girlies!!
It's Thursday and it's time to party Unity-style.

I had big plans for playing with my Kit of the Month for today's post, but then my Mac mouse died...kind of. It points, but it doesn't click. Did you realize you can't do anything with a computer if you can't click??? And unfortunately, that's the only computer that talks with my camera, but now I have to order a new mouse from Apple.

Long story right?? So instead of new art, I am going to show you my piece I made for this month's challenge. Do you play the challenges?? If not, you should! Big prizes involved! Plus it's fun!

This month's challenge was to use Pink, Green, and Cream in a card....

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Little Girl Believes
*Prima paper collection
*watercolor pencils
*StazOn jet black inkpad
*flat back gems
*Nestabilities Lables die cute

Once upon a time....

Once upon a time there was a beautiful little Princess. 
Normally she was a sweet and lovely child. 
But one horrible day, she decided to disobey the Queen's edicts.
As a result, she was punished and was very sad indeed.

But at her heart, she was a Good Little Princess.
Not once did she complain about her punishment.
In fact, she tried to see the good in the circumstances.
The Queen was impressed with her strength and positivity.

As a result, the next day, the Queen wanted to do something to uplift the Little Princess.
A gorgeous, glittery card featuring the Princess was just the way to her heart.
The card was much appreciated by the Princess and it made her smile.
It was a beautiful smile. Just like the Princess.

The End.

My Princess had a hard day yesterday, 
so this card was created especially (and extra glittery) just for her.

Supplies used:
*Bo Bunny paper collection
*watercolor pencils
*misc. bling
*misc. glitter
*Martha Stewart border punch
*Nestabilities labels die

Have a great day everyone!

Writing on Wednesdays...judging my writing mood by coffee cup.

I am going to tell you something shocking. 
I am a writer obsessed with my coffee.
I know.
I can hear the virtual gasps right now.

In this house, we make 2 pots of 12 cup coffee per day (one in the morning and another around 2:00 in the afternoon). We brew a German coffee called Jacobs and it is cause for panic when we are down to only one unopened bag in the coffee cabinet. (We usually have  4-6 bags in there at a time....)

I have two favorite coffee cups....

My pink one, which holds 2 cups of coffeepot coffee.
Then my big honking pottery coffee cup which holds 4 cups of coffeepot coffee.

(by the there ANYONE in this world satisfied by what a coffeepot determines is a single cup?? I don't think so! Where did that measurement come from?)

So back to my coffee cups. When my muse is working hard for me, I use the big honking one. Lately, that's the cup I've been drinking from (i.e. the writing on Operation: Endeavor is going VERY well right now.) I love that.

Now I am debating buying a Keurig. My writing space is at a bar style table in the corner of our living room (we use it as a game table when it's not my office space.) It's right beside a classic 70's wet bar (cue the disco music...hehe.) I've debated getting a little single cup Keurig pot and putting it on the wet bar for when I need an additional pick-me-up cup in between pots, but $100 seems a lot for a few single cups a week. Does anyone have any feedback??
