Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Bloggerette Sorority Rush


Today is "rush" day for the Bloggerette Sorority. Our rush assignment, given to us by Karen at Some Days are Diamonds, was to do something creative with the sorority photo and post it.

Well now girls - - - -

I realize most of you have NEVER heard of little ole me before, so you do not KNOW that I don't "do" crafty, decorative, gardening, baking, cooking, or tablescaping type things.

I "trade" in irreverent humor.

Why, it is the GOAL of my blog to make you spit and snort.

So obviously, no frilly, lacy, girlie project was going to originate with me. I have to be creative in a different way.

So, without further ado, here is my creative "rush" project, in two parts.

First my "virtual" frame on the photo. Hey - - - I made it curvy, that's as close to frilly as it's gonna get around here.

But I didn't stop there! No indeedy - - - check this out:

Here you have our very own LIVE rendition of the bloggerette sisters.

It works - - - first on the left is my flesh and blood "blog lurker" sister, Pam. I am in the middle, and one of our very own Bloggerette Sisters, Cindy of Applestone Cottage is on the right.

I won't EVEN tell you how hard we worked trying to get this picture!

Sweet photo. I can just imagine how long it took. It's like me trying to do a picture in the mirror, I just can't!

Mimi said...

I hope to meet you one day!!!
I have to hurry and maek mine today(well it's after midnight so I say today)
nothing like waiting til the last second or I won't be accepted!!!!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

OK, I'm giggling Keetha.
That was a lot of work but fun!
So glad you came to visit, I loved having you two.
Have a great rest of your trip!

Ann in the UP said...

Spit and snort, huh? I knew you were my equal in classy responses!

Thanks for sharing the fun you and Pam had with Cindy. It looks like a jolly good time was had by all.

Keri said...

I beg to most certainly DO cook and do it well.

Erin said...

Keetha - I look forward to every post. You crack me up. And the recreation of the picture is better I think than the craftiest uses for it.

Aw, you girls are great! Love the expressions on everyone's faces! ♥

HI, from New Jersey! Great take on the photo. You sisters look fab! Can't wait for the rest of the upcoming events. Enjoy the rest of the party!

Looks like you're not having a good time on your trip...sad. :P

Hugs to you ~ my new sister.

Hey...your sister PAM is stalking me!!!! hepppppppppp
You two are crazy nuts and I adore you both!
Your picture is just the best, too!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Did you visit Cindy at the cottage where her husband has wrought so many marvels? He is THE most talented guy. Oh, and so is Cindy -- who by the way was the first one to "teach" me about linky parties. So SHE is to blame! all look lovely, and Bloggerific!
Love, Cass

Theresa said...

Well, it is soooo nice to meet 'cha my dear Sista! Your creation is perfect and I LOVE the picture of you, your "blog lurking Sister" and Cindy!

You asked about my name, Ganky is what my 14 year old granddaughter decided to call me instead of Granny! Ganky is just who I am now to most everybody!

Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me! Thanks for leaving a sweet comment! Big hugs to you my new friend!

Sherrie said...

Hello Keetha,

So nice to meet you! Your rush project is so originally creative! Thank you for the laugh :0)

Ha...I love this photo of your own bloggerette sisters! I thought it was hard enough just taking a picture of myself. And I adore your comment in your profile that you're known to stir things up! I've taken that up as my life's work now that I'm almost retired. LOL

Thank you so much for stopping by my site. It's very nice to meet another sister...


JoAnne said...

Well, I for one am spittin' and snortin'. Great rush project.

Hi sista K. how original. That is more than we hope for. All the creativity is what makes it fun. Thanks for stopping by, come again. I know we will be snorting and sneezing and whatever after we get to know you better. Blessings

Cindy Adkins said...

Oh my gosh, Keetha--You are AMAZING!!!! I can't believe you all posed for that picture--I'm in awe!!!
THANK YOU so much for visiting my blog.

I also wanted to tell you that I have a brand-new blog (not even 24 hours old) that is for inspiration...It's called I Owe it All to Him. There's a link from my blog...It's for anyone who just wants to read inspirational stories or who needs prayers...
so, just thought I'd tell you you're so welcome
to come see it!
Also, I will enter you into the drawing to win the clips and tin.
