Favorite Finds - Weekly

I just couldn't resist! What started out as a Japanese tape theme quickly turned into an exclusive feature when I happened upon this fabulous shop, cute tape. For all of you packaging/paper/sticker/post-it/lovely little thing lovers, this is your heaven! But wait, it gets even better! cute tape is offering a 10% discount to anyone that enters this code "mylazyapples10" at checkout! Fantastic right?!!!

(coupon is good for one use per customer and expires May 31, 2010)

Be sure to stock up on your packaging supplies as I am pretty sure there is a Petite Package Exchange coming sometime this summer! (hint, hint)

Have yourselves a lovely weekend!

Just Odd

Have you ever taken a moment to see all of the very odd things that surround you? This morning I did just that and this is what I found -

  • each morning and each night my cat tells me when it's time to feed her fish, that's right, her fish
  • my other cat clears every counter, table and surface in the house. she pushes everything right off the edge, many a glass have broken this way
  • i have a nudist neighbor that doesn't have any curtains
  • i have another neighbor that decorates his roof with giant stuffed animals and furniture (he also feeds raccoons which now congregate in large groups around his house)
  • another neighbor of mine admittedly watches everything we do and looks in our windows, she also likes to share stories about how much she loved and was attracted to my grandfather (i'm talking about sexual attraction here....cringe)
  • Rory's favorite song is Sweet Disposition by the Temper Trap, whenever she is freaking out we put that song on and she stops immediately (at least she has good taste in music)
  • i have a squirrel that climbs up and looks in our windows, it has even knocked at us before
  • my oven light turns on and off all by itself all of the time
Okay that's enough weirdness for today!

And now a tribute to Rory

Don't forget to enter the Lovely Little Locket giveaway!!!

Take a moment and look at the oddities that surround you, it'll add a little funny to your day.

My Life In An Instant - Weekly

My New Toy

I love Polaroids but the film is way too expensive for this stay-at-home-mommy so for my birthday, which is coming up, I asked for a Fujifilm Instax 210 (I like the mini's too but really wanted bigger pics). And guess what...I got it, as an early bday gift from my mom!
It is the most ugly, most ridiculous looking, coolest camera ever! It certainly isn't a Polaroid but I like it just the same.

Soooo, since I will be taking really cool pictures with it, I've decided to share my fun prints in a weekly post. My scanner is not working right now so I will have to take a picture of the picture to post it which I just think is funny. Every Wednesday I will post a picture of My Life In Instax. I need to make a header for it which may take a week or two so bear with me until then.

Check back later for my first share!

Did you know about this?

Cause I didn't! But now that I do I am having a ton of fun playing with it. Oh, you want to know what it is? It's BigHugeLabs, a photo editing and flickr toy site. Check it out!

I made these and got that cute little flickr widget in my right margin from the website for free of course. No, I'm not advertising for them, I just thought it was fun and I had to share with you.

You can do so many neat things with your photos. This is just all I had time for. You should take a peak if you have a moment.

Sorry for the ad-like post!

Rory Can Roll...

But she won't let just anyone see her do it and she will not let me get it on camera. She prefers to roll when no one is watching. I've seen her do it several times but she usually doesn't realize I'm paying any attention. She also just refuses to do it if I am recording her. I have even set up the camera in a spot she couldn't see well and I've gone on the other side of her to keep her from looking in the direction of the camera but she still ends up staring at it like a deer in headlights. She has been rolling for almost two weeks now and TJ only saw her do it for the first time yesterday! She'll be a pro before I get her doing it on tape. She'll roll over and then get up and walk away at this rate. What a funny little child I have!

Dear Rory,
Mommy really wants to get some of your first rolls on video to have as a keepsake. Please let mommy record you doing it. I'll get you a toy (not really though, I'm not one of those moms yet).
I love you!
