having a bit part in my past does NOT entitle you to a part in my present or future!!

ugh, so someone from my past just found me on facebook. sent Tedibear and i both friend requests. Tedibear approved her cause she didnt kno who this girl was (we used to call her by a nickname). i waited till i could form a polite brush off letter. then she posts bout how ppl need to forgive and forget and let th past back into their lives, and i quit worrying bout being polite. i told her we didnt have anything in common back then and i doubted we did now so i didnt see any point in being friends now, even on fb. forgive and forget right? there wasnt anything to forgive (we were trying to date but then i met Tedibear) we just didnt work out, but i had deffinately forgotten her, i wished her th best but told her there wasnt room in my life for her.

she came back with this rambling piece of crap that made very little sense and made my head hurt. how we might not have anything in common but we might in th future and what was i afraid of, then she was whining bout it again on her status update.

one, i wanna kno how her girl, who shes 'so in love and finally complete' with feels bout her begging an ex-lay to be friends again.
and two - omg really?? grow up! we talked for like 3 weeks (3yrs ago!!) and i could barely stand you then, (esp after she started saying 'i love you' in th first week!!). im not afraid of anything, i just dont like you!!! i tried to say that nicely but she didnt get it so now i gotta be mean. contrary to popular opinion, i dont like being mean. i just have no prob doing it when confronted with stupidity. if ppl wouldnt be stupid i wouldnt be mean.

ugh!! anyway, rant over. back to crafting, and posting my first giveaway!! :-D

want to do's for april

so i joined craftster, and they have a 50 in 2011 craftalong going on, so i joined that to help keep me on track for my 365 in 2011 goal. i was kinda nervous jumping in cause most of them have been posting since th begining of th year, i kinda feel like th new kid in school, but they are a friendly group so im sure there is nothing to worry bout! i went thru th whole thread before i posted (over 3000 posts!!!) and i got LOTS of new ideas for things i wanna try!! and since im finally getting my settlement check from my wreck (that happened in 07!!!) i get to go shopping for new supplies next week!! Tedibear has been so cute, i asked if i could get somethings and she keeps saying 'its ur money hon, u can do whatever u want' (th wreck happened before we met), i think she still hasnt fully accepted that im an our money type of gurl, not a ur money and my money type. although i am totally getting a lil bit in ones for my allowance!!! lol! see, anytime we have cash, if there are any ones then i get them as my allowance that i can spend however i want no questions asked, but that way we also always have emergency gas monies if we run out before payday ;-P

and ive totally gone off on a few tagents so i will have to do another post with the actual list of things i want to do this month.... its next

i wish you would want better for yourself.......

it is always so hard to see a loved one in an abusive relationship. ive been there and kno how hard it is to get out of. i think thats why i have such a hard time when someone i love goes back into one after trying to get out of it. it brings back everything i went through. and i normally end up having to distance myself from my loved one because it hurts and makes me so angry knowing that they are being mistreated but they think that because they love the other person they have to give them another chance. i understand loving someone completely, but you have to love yourself first. and sometimes that measn saying 'i love you but you dont love me back in the way that i deserve so we cant be together' and thats hard, trust me i know how hard that is! but you deserve so much better!! there is someone out there that will love you back just as much as you love them! and they wont hit you, or constantly tell you you are worthless, or cheat on you and blame you for their cheating, or tell you your opinion doesnt matter and they are going to do whatever they want no matter how much it hurts you.

i love you, and i will always be here for you, i just wish you wanted better for yourself!

365 in 2011 ~ 4/1

last count was 102.....

i didnt do much, just finished th skirt i talked bout, and made th matching top. its an awesome stretch lace i found at joanns back in october, black with metallic pale green splatters all over it. it was gorgeous and on sale for only $3/yd!! so Tedibear let me splurge and get 5 yds. then i had this lime green fabric that i had gotten at walmart when they were clearancing out th fabric dept, got a bolt of 20 yds for $5! for th skirt i used part of a pirate costume pattern, its a 1/4 circle, but i cut 3 on th fold, so its basically a 1 1/2 circle skirt. i layered th lace over th green then added a (new to me technique) yoga waist, this way i can adjust th length of th skirt as i want ;-). th top is just a chemise really, and i did it out of just th lace. i ran out of fabric for th sleeves so they are only half instead of full length gathered at th wrist, but thats ok, i kinda like them better that way.

so that brings th total to 104. i had plans to make pants out of th green but i seem to have come down with th walking death :-(
