Busy Month

Wow, I was just updating my new "Where to find me" section to the right there and couldn't believe how long it was. Should be a fun month!!

I also want to get back on an exercise routine. All the illnesses last month convinced me to get my butt moving and be healthier. I've been researching on the internet alternatives with diet and exercise to lessen my sinus problems too--truly amazing what you can find with a few clicks of a mouse these days

I'll be getting more books up on the Diva Bookshelf this week, so keep your eyes open!

Have a great day everyone!!

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphicsI'm being interviewed by the lovely Carol Ann Erhardt on her blog today. She's made it so much fun!!

I'd love you all to pop over and take a look! I'm going to pick a name from all the commenters today to win one of my FUN-STUFFED ENVELOPES!

Well, better than a blank wall...

Still working on getting over this sinus infection. Doctor gave me new medicine and the great news that I get to have a cat-scan because I've been plagued now for years--oh joy, oh bliss....not.

So, while I'm trying to keep my head in one piece, Adelle has tagged me so here goes...

Here are the rules
1.) Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves. 2.) People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules. 3.) At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. 4.) Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog

1. I never know what to say about myself, I feel I'm the most boringest person in the world because I like staying home--so these things drive me nuts LOL

2. My kids are 20 months apart and when sitting down everyone thinks they are twins

3. I am five foot, 2 inches tall if I'm lucky.

4. My flirty girl logo is a reflection of my fun writing and not a reflection of myself--I'm a chubby blonde LOL

5. I'm proud to be a Canadian and I always try to include Canadian stickers in my Fun-Stuffed Envelopes.

6. I'm pretty crafty and usually do two or three craft bazaars over the Christmas season.

7. You all know my husband is a sportsaholic but my family isn't--can't remember my brother or father ever watching a sporting event except maybe one World Series because the local team was in it.

8. I think Orca Whales are extaordinarily beautiful creatures but they scare the living crap out of me because of a recurring dream I used to have as a kid. To this day, if a Marineland/Seaworld commercial comes on, I can go "ooooh so pretty" but my heart races a mile a minute in terror.

Okay, I'm supposed to tag eight more people but let's face it, half are at the RT convention so if you want to do it, go ahead and leave a comment to tell me you did!! I'll even pick one lucky taggee to send a FUN-STUFFED Envelope too!

Thankful for the Sun

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphicsIt's been a rough week here. I'm still fighting a sinus problem and my oldest has been sick--took to doctor last night and turns out he has strep-throat, poor thing

BUT the sun is shining, they are calling for unbelievable warm temperatures and I can't wait to open my window and let some fresh air into the sick house

Calling all Authors

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics

As most of you know, I send out FUN-STUFFED ENVELOPES all the time during the various chats I attend--or whenever I'm in the mood to give things away (which is quite often LOL). These are filled with business cards, bookmarks, magnets, postcards, or whatever other fun stuff I can think off. Readers love them and I get great comments back from those who have received an envelope.

I LOVE to include things from fellow authors and it's time for me to restock.

So, if you want some of your stuff in my FUN-STUFFED, simply send me an email at and I'll tell you where to send them!

This is a great promo opportunity to help get your name out to more readers!!

AND just for fun. I'm going to randomly pick one name from this post's comments to send one of my FUN-STUFFED ENVELOPES to! (told ya I love to give things away!)

What going on with the Weather??

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics

Come on! A week ago we were in our spring jackets, three days ago we were under snow again, and today is just gross and blah with wind and rain and slush and ....ugh! Seriously! Is it any wonder everyone has been getting sick?

Where's the sunshine? Where's the blue sky and green grass? Where is Julie Andrews swirling around the mountaintops with a song in her heart and a smile on her face? Where is the bright sky with a glittering ocean and hot cabana boy bring margaritas to our chairs?

Let the darkness go, Universe, and bring on the Light!!

When all else fails...

Cheer yourself up with a picture....

Cause this is pretty much how I feel...

Caught some virus or just a screw up of nature and my allergies. Either way I needed a laugh so I thought I'd share.

Rested and Ready to Go

I did something very unusual these past few days....I took the weekend off--no working, no writing, no nothin'!

It was weird LOL. I often found myself floating like the cow up there, not quite sure what to do and with my hands itching to get to the keyboard but I forced myself to ignored it.

The holiday was a perfect excuse not to feel guilty about saying No and leaving everything until Monday. We had some great family time Friday and Saturday and then my husband (who also had his first weekend off in ages) caught up on ALL the sporting events happening yesterday to the thrill of his sports-aholic children LOL. It was really good. Of course I come back on to a ton of stuff to do but you know, my head feels clear and I'm smiling taking it one at a time. The piles are more managable. I really must do this more often LOL.

So, what did you all do this past weekend?

Thursday, April 5, 2007


The only reason I let my husband do this is because it was for charity--Ride for Dad fighting Prostate Cancer--The deal was, if his store raised a certain amount of money then he'd get 'er all shaved off--what you don't see is the goatee which he shaved off the night before (safer than giving his employees an excuse LOL) (oh but I am LOVING my new camera *g*)

We figured the drastic change would be better witnessed by the boys rather than a big surprise of Daddy coming home shaved and bald then they asked if the boys wanted to help out LOLAnd this is what I got to take home with me....sigh, it'll grow back right??

Tuesday, April 3, 2007


I got a new toy yesterday--A digital camera!!

You all know how much I've wanted one, well I took a little of the tax return for something other than bills and house repairs and bought one.

LOVING IT!! Can't wait to go to the zoo and get close ups of the animals (both home and the real zoo LOL)

Couple other things too.

New books are up on the Diva Bookshelf so stop by and take a browse.

Also. The first Wednesday of every month is the Yellow Rose Round-Up Chat at 8pm EST in The Wild Rose Press Chat Room. Should be a rootin' tootin' good time! When signing in, don't forget to choose the Yellow Rose room!

Would love to have y'all join us this week!!

Good sunny morning everyone! At least until noon the weather man says LOL.

Okay, so off to the good stuff. Who won this month's episode? None other than....

Episode #42

I'm your host, Stacy Dawn, welcome to another episode of the blogesphere's continuing gameshow here on the Sensibly Insane Channel.

And what would our gameshow be without a hunky guest spinner. So, let's see who will be discarding their shirt for us today....

**wink** Is it getting hot in here or what!

How about you take that sexy body over to the spinner and spin us a prize.


Look at that! The prize wheel landed on a gowned notebook...or I should say, a notebook resembling a gown...perhaps like one worn at Canada's Juno Awards this past weekend LOL

Okay, remember, rules are simple. All you have to do is look at the picture below and tell me their story in the comments section before 12Pm EST tonight.


Here's your escape:

What's their story?
Give me two lines or give me twenty, it doesn't matter. This is all for fun and all for you! So let your mind wander, and your hands fly over the keyboard and let yourself...
