The Praise Of Man...or Woman

So, today I am feeling a little mushy.
OK a lot mushy!

See, I see things in my tiny little brain, visually. I try to connect images to my thoughts and feelings. Not crazy...just artistic. At least that's what I think.

I am feeling mushy because my long lost cousin made a rockin post about me, my blog and my art. It was very kind and so sweet. She shall remain nameless but in the blogosphere, she is known as Crash from
Crash Test Dummy Diaries

She is wickedly, laugh out loud, pee your pants, kind of funny. Go check her out when you get a chance. Here is the sweet plug she gave me today, click
here. And I forgot to mention one heck of a writer!!!

I loved the post. It was like this picture below. So beautiful, yet spikey at the same time. She mocked the "Sewl" in my blog title. Ouch!! Jeez, I thought it was cute. And for your information Crash...the sewl refers to SEWING.

Gosh, ( in my best Napoleon Dynamite voice) you are like the only person that probably didn't get that
(rolling eyes).

Let me explain it for you. Heart and Soul...became Art and Soul...and then my clever mind made it Art-n-Sewl because I make art (that rocks) and I make handmade SEWN originals (that rock). There, clear as mud? Good ;) Still love you Crash!!!

To celebrate our cyber-space reunion, we are joining forces and having a big Crash-n-Sewl Spook-a-Rama. It will be a hair-raising ghost story contest. Not just stories I might add. We want pics, real experiences you have had. The whole gamut of spooky ghostly events.
The prizes are going to be RADICAL. No poxy lace doily doll or something, these are going to be
A-M-A-Z-I-N-G prizes.

See this picture below. It totally looks like I caught an orb or some spooky swirly ghost. It's not. Although I made you think it was for a minute, huh?
Just some kids playing with glow stick bracelets. You get my drift though about haunted pictures I hope. They have to be real. Not like mine.

Come back Thursday, when we will post all the details and contest rules on both blogs. It is going to be so much fun sharing our haunted stories. I hope that they are so dang freaky, they make our toes curl like this cute little fern.

Hope to see you all back.


Oh and in case you still want to enter the give-away, it is still open. Scroll down and look at the fun Halloween party we had this last weekend.

Loved your title and your post and your AWESOME PICS! Love that creepy glow stick one. I am so excited about our contest.

And I was just kidding about the sewl. It's very clever and cewl. and I really didn't know what it meant so I'm going to keep teasing you about it mercilessly.


Emily Anne Leyland said...

Thanks Girl! Oh- I totally knew you were kidding and so was I.

I am majorly excited too.

Haha- I think it is funny you didn't know what it meant. I thought I was so clever. I bet lot's of people don't know what it means then...CRIPES!

Oh well for you dummies...lol...I spelled it out.

LYLLC...HAHAHA back at ya babe.

I understood the sewl bit, so don't worry. If I got it, I'm sure just about everyone else does to.

You know about my experiences, but I'm always scared about entering these contests. I'm afraid I'll freeze and write complete rubbish. I'll give it a go though!

Hey, let's just talk back and forth to each other in this comment box. We could use initials like we used to when we don't want anyone else to know what we're talking about.

HEY, did you see TAMN commented on my post today. OMGGGGGGG

The Crash Test Dummy said...

We can talk to our wicked stepsister too, since she's in here with us.

I guess we can let her in on the secret initial code thing since she knew what sewl meant.

Emily Anne Leyland said...

You girls crack me up. At least you got it Alyson. Maybe that is why Crash has the word Dummy in her title..just saying :)

Don't be afraid to share what you told me. I haven't had a min to respond but dude, I got chills.
And what is even crazier is that one of them is so similar to mine I kicked the chair out from under me when I read it. I'll write it when I start the contest.

Crash- I will go see the post TAMN did. Look at you soooooooo popular. Tell that booger to come over this way. Oh wait you did in my major shout out..ha! And shouldn't it have been LYLALLC?
Or maybe I am getting it mixed up and I am the dummy ..hehehe.

K- going to go do something productive in my home today. I am starting to see stars so I know I have been staring at the screen way too long. STEP AWAY FROM THE MONITOR!

Alyson | New England Living said...

Yeah, let me in on the secret. Oh, and I'm the big dummy. I just noticed that I used "to" instead of "too", which I should have done. I hate making stupid mistakes like that when I comment!

Ooow, you've got me wondering what happened to you! I'm so curious!

Chris said...

I don't have any scary stories! Are they supposed to be true?! I'm scared now!

(I'll be back. Bwahhahahaha!)

Emily Anne Leyland said...


You only have to wait until tomorrow to find out my encounters :) I know a lot of people think I am nuts. Oh well, I know they happened.Oh, and my camera strap, I made. Cute huh. Send me your strap and I'll do it for you. Super duper easy. Or do you sew?

Chris, They don't have to be real. Either a real encounter or pic or a good ghost story that is made up.

It should be fun. I can't wait!!!
