72 of 365: Birthday Movie August 14, 2010

Where to start, where to start…..the dentist visit or the concert????  Well obviously the concert 🙂

I am so excited.  Tonight I am going to the Bret Michels concert at the Wisconsin State Fair!!!  So actually 2 exciting things:  I have never been to the State Fair and, well… its Bret Michels.  Why, you ask, am I so excited over Bret Michels?  Well, that comes with a story.  It either starts with my brother and I constantly listening to an old Poison TAPE (thats right, a cassette tape, google it if you are too young to remember those LOL!!) and singing along when we were kids…Or more likely it comes from my guilty pleasure of watching that ridiculous VH1 show Rock of Love.  Because, even though I know every word to all the old Poison songs, my brother and I grew up without cable TV, so no MTV to actually see the band or the trouble they got into.  I honestly, did not know who Bret Michels was until the Rock of Love.  Too funny 🙂 Today kids would try to make claims of child abuse if they didn’t have cable TV, but back then it was just a thing for city kids to waste time on.  We lived WAY out in the country growing up, and it didn’t seem like we were missing out on anything….  Wow how the world changes (btw…I’m not “old,” will be 32 next week.)

I LOVED watching that completely ridiculous show…  All three seasons, thinking/knowing he was never really going to find that special someone on that show.  Heck, I probably would have continued watching and laughing my a$$ off even if it went to 10 seasons.  I think it was a way to wind down, and let my brain go numb since ,at the time, I was DEEP DEEP DEEP into my graduate studies and visions of statistics and patterns even haunted me in my sleep, so watching something completely senseless probably helped reduce stress.  LOL!

Well, there you have it…I’m going to my first concert in probably over 10 years (Last concert I went to see was Bob Dylan, on some kind of come back tour,  in Green Bay), and since our seats are pretty close to the stage I will probably behave like a star-struck teenager. 🙂

The first project I am posting today is a Birthday card my Sister-In-Law asked me to make.  It was for her friend whom she regularly goes out to movies with.  Her only real request for the card was for it to have a tub of popcorn on the front.  In many ways I actually like the inside of the card more than the outside.  Plus I personalized the inside message with an inside joke the 2 of them share.  To do this I just made some word art in photoshop.  All of the paper piecing is from my Cricut and Gypsy
