Smiley from Good morning and happy Tuesday!  I hope everyone had a great weekend (even if it was a tad short).  I have a burr up my butt (as Mr. Stodgy Smiley from says and yes he really does dance like this) about landscaping the back yard.  Now granted I’ve done nothing but sit in my recliner on my butt for a few years now.  Depression can be a killer!  All of a sudden I feel great and I want to work outside and get some things done.  Yesterday I decided to tackle the dog run in the back.  We don’t have any big dogs anymore and it’s taking up too much space.  It’s all down except for two posts which I just could not get out of the ground.  I’ll have some pictures later . . . some before and after.  There are some wild Trumpet Vines in the boulevard and the dog run was in my way of where I want to plant them.  I’ll be digging them up later this morning when its cooler.

Oh I might add that Smiley from was a little upset with me.Smiley from  He thinks my neighbor and I are collaborating on making our back yard a jungle.  (I can only wish . . .  I LOVE Michaels back yard.)  He wanted to know my master plan and was actually perturbed that I did something he’s been wanting to do for months and months.  He also let me know that the outside of the house needs staining, the deck needs to be cleaned and why in the hell did I take down the dog run instead of dusting?  After a few minutes of steam coming out of my ears Smiley from, I said to him “don’t you think you should be happy that I actually feel well and wanted to get outside.  At least I wasn’t sitting on my ass!”  He had to stop and think  . . . and then I insisted we go outside and TALK about this master plan.  Gee wiz it appears we were on the same wave length . . . . Smiley from

This story could go on and on, so let me end here for the day.  Moving On  . . . .

It’s Stamp Simply Ribbon Store blog hop today!!!!!!!  This month we have been challenged to use a Rubber Soul/Wordsworth Remembering set.  I jumped because I absolutely LOVE the Wordsworth Remembering sets . . . . I know, I know . . .  I’ve mentioned that before!

There is Blog Hop Candy today too.  It’s a Wordsworth set, Webster’s Paper Pack and some ribbon to coordinate.  You’ll need to check out Sharon Johnson’s blog to see the picture!  While you’re at it go ahead and visit the other Designers who are playing along today.

Sherry Cheever YOU ARE HERE

but WAIT, first you need to see my project!


It’s a Maya Road Chipboard piece that I altered with Webster’s Pages and some Grunge Paper.  The flower is made with Spellbinders™ Sunflower and the sentiment was die cut/embossed with Labels Eleven.

So thanks for stopping by and remember  . . . . life is short, do what you damn well want to do!

  22. Wow, Sherry! You outdid yourself with this gem. Beautiful work!

  23. Absolutely love the Hans Christian Anderson quote!

  24. Love your striped flower!

  25. Love the quote. Did I already say that?

  26. I’m glad you are feeling better. Good luck with your yard. The hanging is so pretty. I’m so enjoying the word set. Thanks

  27. Love this project you are one talents young lady

  28. Love it. The colors, textures & quote all go together perfectly. Lovely job!!

  31. Wow!

  32. How beautiful! This is amazing. TFS!

  33. Gorgeous project! Thanks for sharing. God bless!

  34. Another beautiful project! You have a knack for keeping them flowing, Thanks for sharing your talents.
    I live with Mr. Stodgy, too. Except that in my house it’s Mr. Stodgy that suffers from depression and doesn’t take his meds properly. Man, that can be a bummer for sure!
    I’ve concluded that at my age I should do what I want to make life good for me, and he can do as he pleases. We both seem happier that way.

  35. The Toad and I have spent the last two weekends outside bringing a much neglected front yard/courtyard to somewhat presentable. I’ve been so sore I can hardly move, yet I just stand in my courtyard and am happy. Creating can take many forms….yard “work” included!!

    Love this hanging!! I think I need to try and find some mojo (maybe it got mixed in with the manure?!) to create something besides flower beds….

  36. Beautiful!

  37. You brought a smile to my face this morning. Your Mr Stodgy sounds like he may be related to my Crankster. I keep reminding him that women and cats will do what we want so men and dogs had better just get use to it.

    I LOVE this plaque. I am already devising a plan to case the idea. What a great gift it will make!! You, my friend, ROCK!

  38. Love the quote and great flower!!
    Glad to hear your feeling well enough to get things done around the yard, you know it won’t be long and we will be in the midst of winter again, so enjoy every minute you can out there 🙂

  39. I absolutely love this project! The sentiment is so appropriate and I am so glad you are on the road to recovery. I enjoyed your story with “Mr. Stodgy” and your cute little animated icons are wonderful. They made me smile. I am glad you had the “talk” and that you are on the same page. I would love it if you continue your story each day! A lot of us have a Mr. Stodgy in our lives and your story makes us think about what is really important in life and how to share that message with others.

  40. You are so creative! (Just wish I had a smidgen of it!) I love your blog, you tell it like it is. Am so glad you are feeling better and getting out and doing things. The hummingbirds love the trumpet vines and will thank you!

  41. Gorgeous is the first word that came to mind at looking at your creation today Sherry. I love the dotted paper and the striped background of the flower. The sentiment is so true and fits just perfectly. Thanks for the inspiration. I actually think that I can make something just like this. TFS!!! Sherry. 😀

  42. Simply gorgeous project!!

  43. You are always thinking outside the box…. I just love your ideas and always learn something!

  44. Sherry, just beautiful!

    And as always, you crack me up!! Love & Hugs, Ree :o)

  45. This is fantastic. You have such talent. I wish I could have gotten some of the gene. Looks like a great present for me. Love ya sis!!!

  46. Love the card, but also loved to know I’m not the only one who makes hubby angry with yard projects! ha ha.

  47. I’d love to come help dig! Your wall hanging is wow! Love the colors! Who couldn’t be cheered by a lovely flower? And Hans is correct – flowers are God’s gems! He gives us sprinklings of them here and there, all shapes, sizes and colors!

  48. love the design!

  74. Your wall hanging is so pretty. Like your choice of colors, too. I get such a big tickle out of your comments before you share your stamp work. Good luck on your big project. We had our front and back yards done 3 years ago to make it have that English garden, cottage look! The yard looks awesome but is so much work! We are constantly weeding, pruning, fertilizing, weeding some more, spraying for insects, dead heading, and weeding again. Keep it simple.
