YOU:create ... week 13

You know how some days are just a comedy of errors?

And then you wonder why we call them a comedy when none of it’s funny?

Me, too. Today was one of those days.

My body wasn’t exactly feeling peppy. So I gave myself a pep talk [get it? peppy? pep talk? Ok, maybe just I thought that was funny...] and got out of bed – determined to make a pretty canvas just for you.

And then I couldn’t get the jars of paint open.

[Correction: It went something more like, “These $%^%^&*#* jars of paint won’t open!!!” I have a mouth on me. It’s true. And I’ve decided I’m ok with it. It’s just one more trait I got from my dad. :)]

Eventually Linda came to deliver groceries and she opened the jars for me.

[Yay, Linda!]

Then another sweet friend came over who didn’t realize I was allergic to wool, and I had a bad reaction.

[Boo, wool!]

And the rest of tonight has been spent not painting a canvas.

[Boo, me!]

But then Riley came to the rescue.

[Yay, Riley!]


See, today is Riley the Blog Dog’s birthday. Yep. Big Kahuna is officially 7 years old. Which makes him 49 in dog years [I got out a calculator to make sure. I am just that bad at math]. And in all of his 49 years of wisdom, he came up with a solution.


For his birthday, he is going to give a canvas away to one of today’s commenters. And here’s the twist:

You get to tell me what quote YOU want on YOUR canvas!

That’s right... just leave me a comment telling me what you would like your personalized canvas to say. Then will select one of you and I’ll make the canvas for you this weekend.

It’s a win-win! And I get to stick my tongue out at the comedy-of-errors-day that thought it was preventing me from doing a giveaway.

That’ll show a Wednesday not to mess with me. :)
