Smile

Hi Everyone

100 lashes with a wet noodle for me for being gone so long. I am really sorry about my absence. I have no good reason, and I do thank all of you for not abandoning me.

Did everyone have a great Thanksgiving. I know I certainly did. We went to a friend’s house (that I met at church- woo hoo)  and spent the day with her and her family. We just sat around and ate good food and talked about all the nothings in the world.

Today’s cards I cased from Connie Stewart. She has a video showing you how to make 4 cards with 3 pieces of paper (2 neutral and 2 half sheets of color). Isn’t that awesome. She is a wonderful lady and has such enthusiasm. You can see her cards and video here. Here’s my take on her cards.

And His Name

Hi Everyone

Glad to be here today. Ugh, We got snow last night – not much – just a dusting. I thought the weather man was kidding, or wrong as usual. No Way – he hit the mark last night.

You know I used to live in South Dakota (10 years) where we would get snow anytime from October through Memorial Day.

When I moved here to Indiana 2 1/2 years ago – just outside Indianapolis – I thought my snow days were over, at least until the months of January or February. I really really dislike snow.

If you had to scrape your car windows every day – before and after work – basically anytime you needed to go somewhere and shovel snow off your sidewalk and driveway – – I think you would get tired of the snow and dislike it as much as I do. I didn’t have to shovel my driveway as I had a gravel driveway, but I had a big deck 10′ x 20′ that had to be shoveled. Anytime the snow plows would clear the streets – they always left snow piled up at the end of the driveways.

Now imagine – single lady with a snow drift 7 feet high and usually 3 to 5 feet in depth covering the end of your driveway. There is no way I or anyone else could shovel that much snow away. My son spent 3 days shoveling the snow drift to no avail. Thank god businesses were closed because of the weather as there was no way my car was going anywhere. I finally called the trailer park owner and asked if something could be done for me. Woot Woot – would you believe he sent a guy with a bobcat to open up my driveway.

Imagine this scenario happening on a regular basis – Ohhhh – I soooo dislike snow even if it is just a dusting.

Well, on to better things…….

Hello

Hi Everyone

How’s it going today.? Wow, the weather here today is just gorgeous. It’s 69 degrees and the sun is shining. Just beautiful. Perfect for a picnic or to play in the park.  Great day for going to the zoo. Any outside activity would do as long as you don’t have to sit on some cold bleachers. 🙂

Today’s card reminds me of a pretty spring or summer day.

Church Craft Nite

Hi Everyone

Well, Have I been out of it or what. I have really been out of it.

I am soo sorry everyone for not posting this last month. As you know I have had a string of bad luck and lots of migraines  – I guess everything just caught up with me.

I have managed to get in my craft room the last couple of days. We are having a craft night at my church in November. I have made some crafts for that night. I’m soo excited about it. People will sign up in advance to make my crafts.  Woo Hoo – I am really excited about this. I will be able to get my name out in the community with some fellow crafters. Wish me luck and I hope everything goes well for all of us crafters that are going to be there.

I am just going to post pictures of the crafts we will be doing that night. I will not be making a supply list for each of the products, nor will I make a supply list of any kind. I do want you to know that not all the crafts will be using Stampin’ Up products and some of the crafts will be using retired Stampin’ Up products.

I hope you enjoy my crafts – I had lots of fun making them. “)
