mwah to da sistahs who lovey da layout!

This is IT!

Home office.  Lights off.  Corner light on again.  MUSE running through my veins.

I just watched the Michael Jackson movie THIS IS IT, and I have to say, I could not believe how quickly I reverted to an innocent, chubby, glasses wearing (still am), braces needing (need them AGAIN), 10 year old blubbering yoyo brain! LOL.  That movie really hit a spot… I can’t explain.  My little ones were watching their mama spin, dance, grab her crotch (LOL.. NOT), moonwalk (I wish) across the family room.  They looked at me in bewilderment.  They asked me.. MOM, WHO WAS Michael Jackson?  While, they knew some of his songs (from their bellowing mother and father), they didn’t know “WHO” Michael Jackson was.  While i did not want to go into detail about some of his “idiosyncracies”.. or some of his “decisions”, or some of his “misfortunes” growing up..I wanted them to know how Michael Jackson was an ICON.  How talented he was, how he really represented most of my childhood through song.

I think they “got it”.. by watching me smile.. by watching me dance.. by watching me know almost EVERY SINGLE WORD TO EVERY SONG, while I forget what I did yesterday (lol)…

What a sad day it was (actually my birthday) to lose such an important and talented artist who made history.

Wow.. to think that this movie really affected me is crazy! but it did.

Cheers to Michael Jackson, and the odes he left to us to sing to, to dance to, to enjoy.

Mwah to da sistahs who will NEVAH “BEAT IT!”

Em

Em

Where is it??? have you seen it?

my mojo.. my muse.. my writing skills!! where has it all gone? LOL

Sistahs.. I don’t know where it’s been but I feel like it is coming back!  I do know that my older posts have been quite amusing and self deprecating..LOL to say the least and I feel it coming back.. so bear with me (or is it BARE with me.. that would mean getting naked, no?) . So this is it… aside from my other KAJILLIONS of new years resolutions which will be discussed next week.  I, SISTAH EMMY, PROMISE TO FEED YOU FUNNY STORIES, SHARE LOTS OF PRODUCTS (not only stamping related cuz i really LOOOOVE ALL product.. HMPH), discuss every day nonsense.. talk about my children (cuz I KNOW you all wanna hear DAT..LOL).. take funny pictures, have contests.. etc. and do this on a regular basis.

I am sitting in my office at home.. Tyler is watching the hockey game (WHEN DID HE GET SO OLD?), Jayden is in Lalaland (shleeeping)  and I am in the dark and have a cozy little tiffany- esque light on at the corner of my desk.  I am sipping my instant (blech) decaf coffee and I finally feel the groove coming back.  I finally feel like I WANNA write.  hmmmm… this room is REALLY inspiring!! Perhaps I should WEIGH myself in this room since it is making me so happy? (IX-NAY on the EIGH-ING WAY)

So sistahs,  I thank you for bearing with me.. (or is it BARING.. oh ya, that’s the NAKED bare).. you won’t be disappointed.  Of course I still have to discuss BIDNISS..

Speaking of BIDNISS.. you should check out da bella store.. brand new BASIC GREY SUGAR RUSH is in DA HOUSSSSSSEEEE!!  LOVEY it!

Mwah to da sistahs who helped me find my MO-JO.

Em

Happy 2010 sistahs!

I have been soooo quiet!  do you miss me? LoL

Just wanted to tell you that our THEME for this week’s Bellarific Friday is “BACK TO SCHOOL”! so don’t forget to email me your entries by THURSDAY JANUARY 7th!  Please email to emily@stampingbella.com.

Now for some GREATTTTT news!! There’s a new BABE on da BLOCK! It’s OFFICIAL!  Her name is JODI COLLINS and she is soooo phenom!  She won as guest designer for January in the last blog hop and I didn’t wanna evah let her go!!  So PLEASE meet JODI and go to her bloggypoo and give her some LOVIN’ and tell her that Em says HI! LOL.  I just love her work and I know you will too!

Take a looky at her KING of the WILD THINGS card and she also used our SCRAPLINES PARTY ANIMAL ticket! LOVE IT

Here’s a little bit about Jodibella (sounds so good!)

“Hi everyone! My name is Jodi Collins and I live on Long Island, New York with my husband Chris and our 3.5 year old daugter, Meredith”.  I work full time as a paralegal, but once I am home from work and Meredith is in bed for the night, I head down to my “stamp chalet” and spend hours stamping!

Stamping really is therapy for me, and I am a total challenge junkie! I love sketch challenges the most as they really get my mojo flowing!  I love all styles of stamps and papers, but I tend to gravitate more towards cute, sassy images that I can color… cute+sassy+coloring=STAMPING BELLA!

I am super excited to join the Bella Babes and am humbled that Emily finds me BABE-worthy!  I am looking forward to sharing my Stamping Bella creations with all of you and I hope you all find them Babe-worthy too!”

Here’s a picture of Jodi.. isn’t she DEEELISH?!

Mwah sistahs!
