Weekend Stuff

I won a contest over at Oz Girl’s blog. She sent me a box with cool stuff. Look how pretty.
And I learned something. Oz girl made these stamps from her own photography at zazzle! Now there is something else on the internet I want to go fiddle with. You can go to this site and use one of your own photgraphs and make your own postage stamp.
The juice book should really help with my healthy intentions too. If any of you readers haven’t visited, go and check her out. Her full blog title is City Gal Moves to Oz Land. Her blog is down to earth, a lot of fun, and Oz Girl also has a photo blog with beautiful pictures.

Thank-you Oz Girl!

On another note…

Jane at Gaston Studio’s has passed on an award to little ol’ me. Jane is one of the best story tellers out there, and my goodness she does she have some stories to tell. From Savannah to Bahrain to Egypt, Jane has led quite an interesting life.

Here’s what Jane had to say about the award:

The Renee Award, I’m told, is one of the most meaningful awards in blogland because it honors someone who is incredibly inspirational in his or her intelligent and witty writing.This award further celebrates a person’s smart, strong and inspirational spirit and it honors those who spread joy and love like an acorn, a small package growing into a tall and sturdy oak tree which spawns more acorns.
Thank-you Jane! This is such an honor coming from you with the stories that you tell.

I’d like to pass this award on to these blogs whose stories I come back for time and time again.

All these bloggers are wonderful storytellers and inspirational as well. Grab yourself a weekend beverage and check them out. I think Mo Mad Dog is on vacation. He forgot to tell me where he was going. Despite this slight, I'm passing it to him, but he better pop up soon. I'm just saying.

Me? I need to go back to organizing the office and filing six months worth of crap. Apparently, it is a three day summer project. The computer being in the same room as a big chore can be a little distracting.

The stamps are very fun. I'll have to make some at Christmas or my cards.

Having the computer within a mile of where I am is very distracting! I can't seem to leave the damned thing alone!

Casey said...

Wow, you're winning left and right over there. Congrats! I love zazzle.com, it's fun to make something cool like that! I made my dad and Jamie both Father's Day shirts last year with cheesy pics of the kids!

And when is that Mo coming back anyway??? I miss him!

Let see I should be getting things done also. But nope I am here instead. I love Gerber daisy what a nice box you got. Plus an award. Well guess what?? I have one for you on my blog. Look at you go with all of your wonderful winnings.

darsden said...

how awsome is that, lovely happy package. I am going to go check that site out haven't heard about it.

only a movie said...

Oh my goodness, Pseudo. Thank you very much.

And I've had some pretty weak content out there lately, so really, thanks. :-)

Also - congrats on your prize. I'm going to go clink off to visit the places I don't know about...

Thanks again. Happy Sunday.

Kathy said...

Congrats on the award and winning such cool prizes! I made my own stamps one time of a picture of my son and his "He wants to make it clear that he wants nothing to do with this
child" father holding him and I use them every time I need to mail him something. He didn't like that. LOL
I still have some of them somewhere. Yes - I do go to the dark side on occasion..
good luck with the project!!

Creepy said...

congrats pseudo! And you too Erin....

Captain Dumbass said...

Congrats on your award. I love the stamp idea. Oh, and I think Mo had to go back to prison.

Michel said...

Congrats on the award! Well deserved!!

Jan said...

Psuedo.

I am speechless. Thank you SO much, dear - it is more than an honor to be thought of so highly by you.

Gaston Studio said...

an extremely well deserved award!

I liked the post on Michael Jackson. I could picture you sitting in that chair and turning the big dial in search of the song. MJ to me will always represent moving to Hawaii. When we lived in Colorado I was too invovled in my parents' ministry to pay any attention in pop culture. When we moved to Hawaii, pop culture and the new friends who showed it to me were my lifeline. My friend Sammee wore one white glove to school everyday :) MJ and Madonna and Prince were the beginning of the end of religion for me.

did the lady with the tray of champagne come around yet? You know I love celebrations!!!!

Oz Girl said...

Hear, hear, a toast to the girl with the mostest! :) Congrats on your award, most well deserved. I love your stories.

I am the same with my computer - it is always on (unlike my mother who turns her computer OFF after using it for 10 mins -- WTH??) and everytime I walk by the danged thing I have to check things out... grrr. So hard to get any housework done.

(And tell me you DID get the box with the pitcher and the note cards? I will be forever miffed at the postal service if it didn't make it to Hawaii!)

One more thing: Use them stampies up. I have made the fatal mistake of saving them for very special cards, and then the postal rate goes up, and then I have to put an ugly 2 cents stamp next to them! Wahhh!

Oz Girl said...

And I neglected to mention -- thanks for the mention, very sweet of you! Hope you're having a nice, relaxing Sunday. :)

Melissa B. said...

Congrats on the bling! It's always wonderful to be loved, huh? BTW, don't forget to swing by my Silly Sunday Sweepstakes today. We could use a dose of your sense of humor! And I'm intrigued by the title of your previous post...so must scoot over there, pronto!

Stesha said...

Well that puts me out of the running for the Renee Award.

Congrats to you!

Hugs and Mocha,
Stesha

How nice that you won all that cool stuff and such a nice award to boot. You are very deserving and of course I love reading your stories or anything you write for that matter.

Hope that your organizing and filing gets done so you can play and enjoy your summer. Hugs, Lori

Sprite's Keeper said...

I'm flabbergasted for the reasons behind the award are exactly why I keep coming back to YOUR site! Thanks, Pseudo. I'm honored and lucky to hitch a ride with your adventures.

Pastor Sharon said...

I am totally loving what you shared about making postage stamps. I'm going to check it out!
I want to congratulate you on your prize and your award!
Well done!

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Congrats on your much deserved award and for passing it to me. I'm honored to be included with those other awesome bloggers. Love the stamps. Oz Girl is a very talented photographer. (And a great Smart Ass player too)

Thanks again, Pseudo, for thinking of me.
Hugs,
SMB

Joanie M said...

I have a little something for you on my blog!

mo.stoneskin said...

I'm truly honoured. Especially with the implication that I'm intelligent and witty.

*blush*

*dream*

I was in France. Drinking wine and teaching a baby to crawl.

I'm very behind in my award handling but I'll snap this one right up!

Beth said...

The computer being in the same house is distracting. I've been cleaning out stuff on my break. It is a comforting feeling when it starts coming together.

Now, I'm off to make some stamps...

Beth said...

And congratulations on the award! You are very deserving!

BTW, my youngest just launched a photo blog, and I'm shamelessly trolling for traffic. Please visit my site to see what she's got going, and pay her a visit!
