plastic bag holder

OK so i just made this up today. its for work cause they never have any plastic bags there. there is a kitchen and all that but no bags. so i figured if i made a plastic bag holder then people would hold on to them. i got the lady bugs at Micheal's for a dollar for 4. they came of course in the scrapbook section and have the sticky dots on the back but i used the glue gun on it anyway. just to make sure it sticks. well now i am off to do last few rounds of the sections crochet along in a group i am in. hope y'all like the bag holder

long bobble doily

this is a JPF free pattern of the day from last week i think. there are no dates on them. but it was easy if you can pay attention to it. i started it while watching my movie last night and got all mixed up. but had no problem today when i was concentrating more on this then father of the bride 2 which was just kinda on in the back ground. it kinda looks like an amoeba but i think my partner will like it anyway. here is the link to the pattern though http://www.jpfun.com/patterns/paid/doilies/p111004longbobble.shtml you gotta be a paid member to get it but for those of you who are you will have access to it. well i am outtie!!!!!

last tarheel pillow

this weeks movie review

Born to Austrian nobility, Marie Antoinette (Kirsten Dunst) is only 14 years old when she's pledged to marry Louis XVI (Jason Schwartzman), the 15-year-old king of France, in an alliance that has everything to do with politics and nothing to do with love. Sent to France and literally stripped of her former life, Marie weds Louis, but to the consternation of the royal court, he seems either unwilling or unable to consummate the marriage while their advisors clamor for an heir to the throne. Young and more than a bit out of step with the new life that's been thrust upon her, Marie gives herself over to the pleasures of life in Versailles, knowing and caring little of the political intrigue that surrounds her. In time, Marie's trusted older brother, Joseph (Danny Huston), is brought in to coach Louis on the finer points of marital relations, and before long the couple is finally blessed with a child. However, as Marie tends to her children in the gilded cage of her palace and enjoys an affair with a Swedish nobleman, political power plays are throwing France into chaos, and the growing ranks of the poor rebel against the royals and their life of privilege.

OK so i didn't like it. i am not a history buff. i still don't know who she is or what happened to her or why. loved all the dresses and stuff though. and the sets and colors. that was all great. but i don't even remember half the peoples name from this movie. i had to copy and past the part above just to tell what this movie was about. oh wait do know one thing.....she never said "let them eat cake" i think that was on a snack wells commercial. oh well. next week will either be the last mimzy or the illusionist.

this weeks movie review

now this movie is about 3 kids (kinda) 2 brothers who just cant get along. the older one is angry about his parents divorce and the the older sister (who you don't see much of) sleeps allot. the little brother finds a game in the basement that he wants to play with the older brother but he of course thinks its stupid. so the little one tries to play it aloe. after his first turn they notice the house is now floating in space and they have to finish the game in order to get home. there i a broken robot who wants to kill them and lizard men who want to burn there house and an astronaut they rescue. i started watching this movie while Alexia was in the tub. but when she got out she was so into it she couldn't even go put her jammies on unless i paused it. she really enjoyed it. i myself say if you say jumanji you have seen this. just instead of playing a game and a jungle coming out you play this game and outer space came out. so its good for kids but no really for grown ups. oh and the older brother is the same kid from bridge to teribethia (which i saw last week) it took me so long to figure out where i saw him at. any who that's my review for this week next week will be Marie Antoinette
