My BFF is a fairy!

>> Thursday, September 3, 2009

It's another day of sneak peeks over at the PMS blog. To see 3 new fairies being released, go over there to check it out!

I'm VERY excited about my fairy to show you today! When chatting with Diem (the illustrator of the Beautiful Day Fairies for Paper Makeup Stamps), I told her i really wanted a fairy for my BFF, Rachel.

Now Rachel is a true dometic goddess! I know you all have one in your lives. You know, the one who's home is always emaculate. She's got some glorious delicious dinner cooking (even if it's only noon). She's got a scrumptious dessert waiting in the refridgerator. And she's done all of this while simultaneously creating some ridiculously cute craft for her child to take to school. Yes, she's THAT mom. She's also the mom who always finds everything on sale. Oh, and did i mention she looks good while doing all of this? This picture of us is very old by the way! Rachel now sports this über cute bob hair cut. Of course she does. ;) She's a domestic goddess!

Here's my life... my house, though my best intentions are to keep it clean, always has toys strewn about, laundry to be put away, and is very very very lived in. There is never dinner cooking on the stove or crockpot or anywhere earlier than 20 minutes before dinner because i dont have a clue how to cook. There might be some dessert somewhere though. I never find things on sale, but rather have to run to the stores after Rachel calls me to tell me to go and even then i miss it half the time. And most of my clothes are Rachel hand me downs as she either gets skinnier than i am, or she's giving me clothes she's traded for her new sales duds. Yes, this is my life. *sigh*

But having Rachel for the BFF is fantab. Because she always remembers to call me about such sales. I DO get the "hand me down" clothes, which of course due to her domestic goddess ways have been well taken care of and you'd never know. She makes my dinners FOR ME and brings me snacks. And she's always ready with some crafty mojo. She is my muse. Not to mention she cuts all my rubber for me! hahahahaha.

She's the domestic goddess everyone should have in their lives! Oh, and our kids are going to get married. :)

Without much further ado, i give you my Rachel card!

Please notice that i left the bristles of her broom white because though rachel cleans often, there really isnt much to clean. I tried to help a bit while she was sick and wanted to clean for her... but there was still nothing to clean! So instead of coloring her broom. I added Spica pen so it shimmers! hahahahaha. I also added some spica pen to her hair and wings. Its hard to photograph of course, but i tried!

So since my pst has already gotten incredibly wordy... i think i'll just skip right down to...
