Odd things with wings...





A little atc challenge that I decided to take part in...I even named them.."Phyllis Flies", "Don't make me break out my flying monkey", and "Am I late?"....Sometimes I get tired of vintage and pretty and just want to play with something strange... When I was making my atc's, the kids were also making projects...Andrew was especially proud to present me with his two "green" paintings..yep, green, all green...I will save them forever and Olivia made me a paper cuff bracelet...Also, drum roll......the bottom half of me is now in a size six again....The top half still needs some work cause I am still rocking the boobies...Why on earth would anyone want to make the dumb things bigger????? (just my opinion)Especially when you are five feet tall....

Love the trading cards! And the names are very clever. Congrats on being a 6 on the bottom again. As for why anyone would want to 'make the dumb things bigger,' I have no idea.

Hi Melinda...
I like your Odd Things with Wings! It's always neat to step outta the box every now 'n then... Cute pic of the kids, and such sweet art projects they made for you!
I've not been too well, but am finally back and trying to catch up with everyone... Sure was sad to hear about the recent woes with your daughter 'n the custody issues... I'll be sending up extra prayers as you navigate the stormy waters... I so wish there was more that I could do to help...
Congrats on the size 6 ... YAY!! ... and I agree, cannot fathom why anyone would want big boobs!! I'd gladly give away some of mine... LOL
Hope you're doing well and I'll be back to visit again...

~hugs 'n prayers~

SIZE 6?! I'm jealous. Pregnant or not, I'm so NOT a size 6. Darling ATCs. Funny winged things are still cute. :)

Hi Melinda. Catching up on postings and blogging and please know I am praying for your family and hope everything works out for you and the kids. They are so lucky to have someone as loving and caring as you. May sunshine begin to fill your days, thinking of you. Love the wings...I do like to play outside the vintage and pretty box also:) Jenna Louise
