Here's pictures of all my booty from Canadian Suzette of the Whose Lace is it Anyway swap!

I'm having high-speed internet issues, but luckily I still have my AOHell dialup back up.

Sooo, I uploaded a ton of pictures and organized my Webshots area . . . while on dialup.

It sucked, but it's done!

Suzette is so kind and wonderful! Her package was filled with nice, beautiful and thoughtful items. I am officially spoiled from here on out in the swapping world! My 'Queen for a Day' has been extended over the three-day weekend! Thank you thank you thank you Suzette. You're the best!

Canadian Suzette is a first-class swapper!! [Sep. 1st, 2006|12:49 pm]

Dateline: 12:30pm Friday, September 1, 2006

Picture it: Sitting at my office, wishing the next four hours were done already. In walks the mailman . . . and I spy a good-sized box in his bin. My heartbeat starts to quicken. Could it? Might it? I get up and walk to him, with my hands clasped behind me like a kid in a candy store looking at the display. What's that I read on the box? Something 'Canada'? My pulse picks up the pace further. Last I heard from my lace swap partner was her hints about being a Canadian, 'eh . . . ooooohhhhh, this could the start of something BIG I'm thinking. The mailman takes notice of my sudden interest of his presence (to-date I've never come out of my office when he's come in) and realizes I'm not jumping up for HIM - I'm jumping up for his *package* (snort). He finally fills out the requisite paperwork and hands me the box. His voice fades off to a distant drone as I grab scissors and attack my postal goodie. In the back of my mind I'm thinking 'be good - must take pictures first' . . . then I rip it open and start oooooohhhhing and aaaaaahhhing and petting, and smiling, and squeeing and generally looking like a right lunatic!!!

Fade to black.

Well . . . it's all packed back up for the trip home - it's gonna be a LOOOONG four hours. When I get home I'll get some pictures and descriptions up. For now let me thank Ms. Suzette of Canada for being a FABULOUS swapper. I feel like it's my Queen For a Day moment!! Thank you Suzette!!

This livejournal s*^t is new to me, so I may have to work on linking stuff . . .

Anywhoooo - I'm glad she likes the stuff, and I'm bummed the chocolate got mooshed in the process. I had them in the freezer for days beforehand, but unfortunately my 'overnight' package took TWO DAYS!!! Oh well.

Now I get to sit back and wait for my swap package to arrive . . . whatever shall it be? Whomever shall it be from? WHENEVER shall it get here????? LOL

Lace Swap Pron - Lindsey B's gifts [Aug. 20th, 2006|05:30 pm]
ajmclaughlin
I spent some time this afternoon taking pronographic Lace Swap package pictures of Lindsey B's gifts.

After that, I uploaded them to my computer and took time to rename them and even give them little captions.

Dumb me thought that all that effort would translate to my flickr account . . . but NOOOOOOO!

So, I got lazy and didn't redo all the captions in flickr OR even my Webshots account (where I loaded some of them too).

Shadow and Callie assisted in the photo shoot. Shadow was her usual Diva self, and I think Callie got high from a natural fiber overload!

Raiders are on right now (ugh - I'm a DolFan!!) so The Mike is watching TV while I cook dinner and update my journal.

Tonight we're having:
Chicken Cordon Bleu (from a recipe I found online and modified to my liking)
Bow Tie pasta with a mushroom cream sauce
Asparagus - The Mike's favorite vegetable . . . of all time!

I've been in and out of my Clapotis knitting today . . . mostly out . . . but I'll be back on it hot and heavy while I watch an evening of great shows.

Entourage at 7pm and Big Brother All Stars at 9pm. BB is supposed to be a kick-ass episode tonight and I'm all a-twitter! The day(s) Dr. Will and Janelle go will be days filled with Snoopy Happy Dances!!

Lace Swap Update [Aug. 17th, 2006|04:35 pm]
ajmclaughlin
I'm in a lace swap and I've been toying with my unsuspecting lace recipient. It's so much fun to bestow presents and goodies on a complete stranger! I love it!

She doesn't know who I am yet, so mum's the word for now . . .
