Torn, Worn and Loved

Hello my name is Nancy, and I am a addicted to Snowmen. Isn't admitting addictions the first step in any rehabilation? Isn't this Dilly Beans Stressed Snowman Digi fun?

The Shakespeare quote is very thought-provoking to me. I am not sure which masterpiece it came from or the context it was written in, but I have had it in my quotes to use collection for awhile. It has so many possible meanings. It could be the Romeo and Julet kind of love or the love that God has for us (even though we say stupid, horrible, meaningless things, He still loves us with a real, true, and forgiving love). Ok, enough deep stuff!

Truth be known, this snowperson image represents how I feel most days since my medically induced menapause (or is this how everyone wlse feels around me? LOL).

I am entering this in the following challenges:

DillyBeans Designers and Friday Challenges
- Worn, Torn and Distressed
Pile It On - PIO#33 (Bingo - Ticket, image, faux sewing on the image)
Crafts and Me Challenge #96 - Use a Digi



  1. That poor little snowman looks like he has had a rough day LOL! I was close to that after spending a week in a 32' trailer with two adults and four kids while we went camping with friends!! Love the menopause comment - hang in there ((hugs))

  2. I love this Nancy, I agree with Marisa he does look like he has had a rough day lol
    Kevin xx

  3. This poor snowman does look like he's having a rough day, sort of how I think mine will be today as I'm moving my son back to college and his first apt). Wonderful thought provoking sentiment.

  4. Fab card Nancy! I love this "stressed out" snowman. Admitting that you have a problem IS the first step. I admit that I have a paper addiction but I don't know what to do next. Lol ~jeni :)

  6. Great choice for the distressed challenge! Love that little guy and your quote - very apt to a whole load of situations :)

  7. LOL You're too funny. I came to see what was on your kitchen counter and found a snowman!!!! Now, you don't want to get over this's a good one. I am also addicted to those cuties. Guess you knew that. Love your funny post about your medically induced --pause. You crack me up. Great card!!!!!

  8. Your litle snowman looks frazzled. Love the color combo and the big red heart!!

Since you are addicted to snowmen, you might find these freebies fun - keep scrolling as she has tonnes and tonnes of free images and quite a few snowmen :-) Hope you enjoy! (P.S. I'm not connected to her - I just found the blog through Free Digital Stamps)

    so happy you have played along at Pile it On!

  11. Ha-menopause (the couple years when my husband said "yes, dear", "no, dear" stage) hahaha. This was me on Thursday when that crotchety old man I work with came to my office to yell at Gosh he needs to retire. This is just so fun and does really make me think of that day. I was so

  12. OMG this is just as cute as can be. I love the image and the sentiment is perfect!

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
