You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it!

Hi everyone!  I hope those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving had a wonderful day! I have a confession to make and I don't know how else to put it so here goes, I'm burnt out on blogging and  its time for me to take time off from Peetee's Palace.  
When I started this blog about 3 years ago I had no idea that I would meet so many wonderful women because of it.   I have formed real life friendships that mean the world to me and I intend on keeping those bonds strong regardless of what happens with the blog.   I hope each and every one of you know how much your comments and kinship have meant to me over the years.  You were there for me when my Dad died and offered up your love and support and for that and so much more we will forever be close.  I hope I was truly able to inspire some of you, for you have provided so much inspiration to me.  I wish you all the very best that life has to offer!
 I really mean that.

I love you all!

It's too cold outside for angels to fly

I will be so happy tomorrow when the frigid temperatures move on outta here! The only good thing about the cold is the chance to wear my faux furs and build a cozy fire, maybe not at the same time.  I haven't ventured out much at all to take photos but I can still show you what I've been up too indoors where its nice and warm.  When I did venture out I found this.
Next month Cristi and I bring Kiss Me Kitty to Crafty Wonderland.  I decided to make some super blinged out kitty ears of my own inspired by a pair I bought last year from Crown and Glory.

My supplies were pretty basic.  I first covered the wire shaped ear with felt.
Then glued them to a head band and covered the back in glitter.

 Then I glued the gems to the front.

 not bad huh!
 I found these at the 99 cents store and thought it would be great to hand out a few to some of our KMK kids.
 I have been eating good stuff from the Waffle window.

 Wearing bright stuff!
and warm stuff
 trying big hair inspired by Vix, the famous woman whose gorgeous house will be featured in a MAGAZINE!!!!

 Rocking my Day of the Dead necklace from Shelley who just got back from a fabulous trip to NYC!
Ain't she gorgeous!
 And am now the new owner of what is quite possibly the best work boots ever.  Helga you need a pair for when you are driving the fork lift my dear!
 Ain't she hot!
I love it when things I wear remind me of people I adore!  
Ok this one is just offensive and sometimes I am just that:)  Sorry Mom.

Throw back baby

My step dad Jim is such a talented photographer, all of these pictures are brought to you by him and are from their trip last month.

 This is our living room and my favorite room in the house.  I love it when the sun shines in!

 Images from the lunar eclipse.

It's been freezing here like literally.  Give me any excuse to break out my faux furs!  I'm off tomorrow and plan on getting creative and staying warm.  Have a wonderful weekend whatever you do!

She shoots her colors all around like a sunset going down :)

I had every intention of paying someone to color my hair, then I realized I trust myself way more than anyone else.  I guess that's what happens when you dye your own hair for over 20 years. I also feel much better about wearing this look because I created it!  There is something very satisfying about that.  Sure rich folks can buy whatever they want but it feels so much better when you create it for yourself. 
Here is my new color.  Orange on top and fuchsia underneath.  It will take a bit of getting used to but I love how crazy VIBRANT it is.
 Its pretty hard to photograph.
 This is a close up of my hair and my heart.
 A colorful reminder of my Dad.

 I did my hair in several steps over a few days.
 My necklace from Tania.
 It really does look like a sunset.
 My sweet new sugar skull purse.
 Some found fabric $4.
 My cute necklace again!

 Cristi and I went to watch our friend Teresa give a cooking class.  She is the creator of Enlighten Your Palate. 
 She did a great job!
 This is what your face looks liken when you say cheese!  Not a good look:)
 Teresa's roommate Dana has great style.
 One of her yummy creations.
 Me dorking it up.
 I made a dress! Thanks to all you inspiring seamstresses out there!  VIX, PAO, CURTISE, HELGA, just to name a few.....It came out awful, but I don't care I completed it.  I need to use a pattern next time as this one I just traced from another dress I love.  The vintage fabric I used was dirt cheap.
 Ya see that clock back there?  That was 7:44 AM this morning, not bad for a work at home gal :)
I'm a rainbow!
