I'll keep this brief.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you are well aware of what's supposed to happen tomorrow at 6pm: Jesus will take his children up to heaven and leave the rest of us to roam the earth in misery for the next five months. The Rapture. The end of days. The beginning of the end. (yes, you can quote me)

I guess after the five month purgatory period, we can expect the earth to implode or explode, or whatever happens during the end of time. Personally, I can't wait to witness this. I want to see the 'saved' drift effortlessly up to heaven, or disappear, or explode or whatever happens when they are rapturing. I barely know what to expect. I'm looking forward to the ultimate 'learn as you go' experience.

I'm spending the first few minutes of Armeggedon driving to meet some friends for dinner...6:30 reservations. :)

Location:Everywhere at 6pm tomorrow

Scotts reaction

Courtesy of Suzanne

Scott's Birthday gift.

I would like to share a very special gift I commissioned for my husband's birthday. I found this artist through a post on Regretsy in which April Winchill commissions a portrait with a flip flop on her head, wearing a magic marker moustache. That was back in February. Then in early April, I read this post where others sent in their photos for portraits.

Well, I am only human. I HAD to have one! And what better reason to order one than for my husband Scott's birthday? So, this is the photo I sent to Sharie of ShariesCraftworld

Yes, I know...this could have gone horribly wrong, but I'm an adventurous gal. I've been with my husband for half of my life, so he obviously knows me and my humor. I received the finished portrait with plenty of time to oogle it before giving it to him on May 1st at his birthday dinner party.

I have to include an angle shot here, so you can see how 3D it is!

Now, like I said earlier, this could have gone horribly wrong. He could have had silent distaste, could have screamed in disgust and thrown it accross the table...but, Scott is my husband...I could not have asked for a better reaction.

I have to say that Sharie was a pleasure to work with, and that this portrait is one of Scotts favorite presents ever! Thanks so much again for this awesome portrait, Sharie!
