What a horrible accident, kewlmomma.  I don't understand the need to out drinking for the sake of drinking.  I can understand if you have a drink with a meal, or on a festive occasion like a wedding, New Years or a celebration of sorts. But I do not understand the need to hang out at a bar just to drink (and probably don't have any food to go with it).  But that's just me.  I agree that if you go out drinking, don't even get there with your car.  Take a cab there so you are compelled to take one home and not drive home drunk.  I hope they throw the book at him, especially for leaving the scene of the accident.

Thank you for your kind words. I am sorry I picked here to vent.
Now on to happier things. Lets go to the next Dotee round. This is great therapy for all of us.

Here is the dotee I received from Fiberdogs:



She's a mermaid!!  I love her face, and her shells were perfectly intact!

She also sent some gorgeous hand-stamped notecards and some fabric and a sweet note.  Unfortunately, I don;t have pics of them yet - since I have been sick, my daughter was trying to be helpful and cleaned off my desk (where I'd had them tucked away) and can't remember where she put them... I personally think my little artist tucked them away in her room Tongue  As soon as I find it all, I'll post pics Smiley

Thank you so much, Fiberdogs, and I hope you and your family are feeling better!

Hi everyone - I'm home finally. This was a rough week but I'm ready (and needing) to craft again, finish my swaps and start some more! I am off to give you all feedback. Let me know if there are any strays out there.

Also, I will post the sign-ups for Round 6 later this afternoon or tonight. Just need to check my other swaps and stuff. While you're waiting, please read the sad story of Miss California.

Please meet Miss California. Her story is sad but short....



She was disqulified for several reasons. She failed the drug test - she is addicted to self-tanning pills. And two of her tarantulas escaped, one tarantula cannot perform the 3-Tarantula Pyramid that was central to Miss C's talent - a lecture on the proper care and feeding of tarantulas while making fruit smoothies. She also refused to remove her sunglasses and that did not endear her to the chaperones or the judges. So, better luck next year Miss California.

Everything about Miss California is so very clever.  Fabulous!

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

Thank you Jeane for posting a pic for me. I love her bandanna by the way.
 Thank you for all the well wishers. I'll take the good vibes with much thanks. Our friend was only 26 and had a 3 year old little boy. He decided to go out drinking with a friend and the "friend" was driving drunk when he ran into a tree. This so called "friend" was not hurt so he fled the accident and left him there. We are in shock right now. The moral is "DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE." I know I don't need to say it to anyone here. I'm sorry if this is TMI I guess I just need to vent.

I am SO SORRY to hear about your loss! I work as a nurse in a trauma center in the ER and I see so so so many drunk driving accidents it just breaks my heart. I swear when my daughter is old enough I am going to bring her to work with me some day to see what alcohol and drugs do to our lives and the lives of people we love
