Thanks + More Crafty - More Snow = Less Ghetto?

To get you started this evening (I swear on my right boob that I have funny in this post) I am posting a vlog. You can see me stumble through a terrible thank you to some of my readers. I suck at that but I figured THAT would be better than me doing my regular "thanks- you are cool". So.. ok. And I didn't preview it because you people freaked me about telling me I sound weird. Now I'm all self conscious when I say "about" and such. One time I actually said "a boot" and now I'm getting teased. Whatever. So I refuse to see what I look like. HA!

(Edit to add: Forgive the static. I decided to listen to it and guess what? THIS IS PROOF I'M NOT CRAZY, Matt!! It does make a static noise! Any techie people?? Help me prove my husband I'm not a retard.)

So I haven't had a chance to show you what is in my shop. And my "link" button isn't working so you're gonna have to just go to www.scrapinsara.etsy.com (which links.. WTF blogger? WTF?) and check them out. But I have an entire greeting card set (more coming soon):
 And cutie Valentine's cards. I have a few different ones and I made myself an extra set of these.
OK. So we are all familiar with the ghetto state of my van window, right? If not, you need to click on that link and be ashamed of yourself for not knowing what's going on. Anyways. So right now the only thing keeping my van from being robbed of it's seats and random shit in there is a huge sheet of plastic and some duck tape. Well, I'll tell you one thing- neither of these things will keep you warm but they WILL give you the experience of scraping the inside of all your windows so you can see out them. And I've also discovered that I think I have freakishly small arms because folks? I'm struggling. I got my boob stuck in my steering wheel today and it hurts. I'd show you a picture of the huge red mark that is still there but I think that's porn and my blog will get flagged or something. Anyways.

So today it snowed and shit and I didn't think anything of it. Until I went outside to find that some of the tape is not longer sticking so I had a snow drift. IN MY VAN. Guess how awesome it is to shovel out the interior of a vehicle? Um, it's not. Seriously pissed me off. So I put even more duck tape on it and I hope to god that it not only stays sticked to the van door part but that if it does fall off... my seats are still in there. I heard that some people will steal your seats and stuff. I don't know if that's true but sad day because I don't know if I have a clause for that in my insurance.

I can't wait to see what tomorrow morning brings me. :/

But I will tell you one thing- I will never have this problem again. Granted, if we're being honest my window will probably get shot out again. BUT I told Matt we are going to have a special account with my deductibles sitting in it. But until then.... I'm without a window and $125 short. Oh payday.. where art thou??

Okay so now you only need $100 cuz I felt sorry for your ass and stocked up on some etsy. What can I say I haven't talked to you in a couple of days and I got all sentimental.

A drift in your van? Freaking awesome.

Ruth said...

Wow, that's some serious static.
I don't think you sound weird. You just sound like someone from Wisconsin.

Danielle said...

Okay so Matt needs to figure out the static problem because I just had a minor heart attack ... all I heard was someone was getting a vibrator in the mail and she's never had one before ... I hope it's not me. Lol. No, but seriously. Call me prude if you want ;)

Anywhoooo, I'm glad that you're making progress on your window ... slowly but surely I guess is how the saying goes, even though slowly really sucks when it's a pile of snow and a storm outside :( Hang in there, xoxox

Ugh Sara, that snow drift majorly blows. I am thanking God that I don't work this week. I don't plan on leaving the house till at least Saturday.

Oh and P.S. I need a Sara day in the worst way. Or I might murder my dad. I figure if I'm going to go to jail it ought to be for doing something ridiculous with you and not for murdering my father. Just saying.

I hope your window gets fixed soon! I would help in the funds and buy some etsy but unfortunately I need all the money I can get. I hope your tape sticks I couldn't imagine shoveling out a car. Happy Trails!!

jprp said...

you are so damn cute, and talented! i seriously need to get to your shop, but the thing that really struck me with this post was the getting your boob caught in the steering wheel, really?! wow, what i would give to have a boob big enough to get stuck somewhere!!! xx

My bad hearing and the static didn't mesh well. Probably due to my hearing more so than the static though.

Ang said...

So I have this little earbud that I plug in at work and listen to videos or radio or whatever... turns out I'm deaf now after the static (i hope someone can help you with getting that fixed). However - to me, you don't say 'about' funny, but I've been told I do as well, so I'm probably not the best person to judge you on this. I've also been told I say 'bag' funny... so maybe you should vlog about all the words us northerners say 'wrong' and see which ones people call you out on, then post it for all to see. You know, so we can work on our problems together. :)

I hope you get that money soon! I'd buy somemthing but I'm trying to save my own $500 deductible for that huge gash in the side of my van. Which granted, does not cause snow drifts in it.

Dana Leigh said...

So I'm the lucky recipient of one of your stationery sets that Ang bought for me. If you look at her blog and my blog today, you'll get the back story. I love the set! I'm also going to take a peek at your items available for sale. We'll all help get that window fixed in no time!

You just tell Matt that I'm going to college for computers and that the static is NOT normal and shouldn't be there. But I enjoyed it regardless.

And it's terrible with your van. I really really hope you're able to get it fixed asap. When I get paid Friday I'll try to buy something from your shop! I hate gangster kids. Disgust me.

YOU GOT YOUR BOOB STUCK IN YOUR STEERING WHEEL?!?!?!? lmao!!!

And it was my pleasure, dahling. ;) Weird and cool to hear your voice!

Mom Taxi Julie said...

LOL Everyone commented on what I was going to say. Way too much static, heard about the vibrator and OMG your boob!! :) Love ya girl hope you get the money soon!

Sara said...

Ugh! Sucktastic start to the new year. Sorry about your window. That blows donkey balls. And how the heck did you get your boob stuck in the steering wheel?! Hope things get better. I'd try gorilla tape next time. It sticks much better than duct tape, even in snow and wet.
