Happy Independence Day

Do you remember back in the summer of 1998 when Peter Max licensed his Statue of Liberty painting to Arizona Iced Tea? I drank a lot of it, because I liked it, but mostly to get those graphics. I made a few cards using it as well. In my tall IKEA drawers where I store a lot of my rubber stamps, I have two drawers just for 4th of July stuff. Thought I still had a card sample with the label, but only found this one last label. If I recall he had 12 different paintings and I don't know if they used them all. Wish I still had some more of the labels. Actually, probably do, in a box in the garage somewhere, with bugs eating away at them. Eewwww!

Don't try THIS at Home!

Well, I just had a really disgusting happening! There will be no photos, you can just use your own imaginations to picture it. First to set the stage: I am having back problems the past couple of weeks, so can't sit for very long. But I still keep multi-tasking like I always do. Figure if I sit awhile, walk to another location, sit awhile there, etc. You get the picture. Been working all morning on ICAD cards, painting some journal pages, tidying the family room, searching for little metal brads, this and that. Realized I've only been drinking coffee and haven't had breakfast. So what do I do, get another cup of coffee and a bowl of gingersnaps and head to the computer where I've been blog hopping. Well, I don't know how y'all eat gingersnaps, but I like to "dunk em". I'm trying to grab a blog button and get signed up for another challenge, and gawking at traci bunkers site with my mouth open. Both in awe at her stuff, and to stuff a dunked soggy cookie in it. guessed it. I held on to it a few seconds too long, and whadyaknow... It drops right on my keyboard. On the way down it slides on the front of me..oh yes I am still wearing my sockmonkey p.j.s. So there is a big nasty clump on my monkeys, and on the keyboard. For one little gingersnap, it sure made a big mess to clean up. Most accidents do happen at home, and even moreso when multi-tasking! Now my back really hurts and I need to go lay down. And I may need to go buy a new keyboard.

I do plan to finish the Mockingbird saga by the week-end, as everyone has been asking for an update.
