It's been one crazy week....

trying to tie up loose ends at work - a week
earlier than we normally shut down. The days
are long and they start very very early........
But I do love what I do everyday and I'm
thankful for it.

However, I have managed to stay up late
and play a little..... Recipe pages are almost
done, tags are at least cut out and it's going
to be a baking marathon at my house late
Thursday night.

Can I just say I am really looking forward to
the weekend!!!!!!

As Bill would say.......

only in America can grown adults witness the
birth of a Cabbage Patch baby at 10 leaves

This place was so cute and set up with
Dr's, nurses, incubators, nursery, etc. It brought
back memories of the doll's release in 1983.
Christina was only 10 months old that Christmas and
I waited in line for many hours to finally get my hands
on one of those dolls.....

Cottages are reserved!

Total cost per night per cabin is $93.65 this does
include tax. Total amount billed to my CC $187.30,
for the first night reservation. Nine of us are
committed so that breaks down to $20.81 per
person per night.........

I emailed Michelle H my address and for
everyone else I'll meet up with you sometime
next week, or the week after, etc.

Just a suggestion - but how about we work out
the other logistics (food, etc) at a later time.
We can discuss at Card Class or in Dec. at our
Christmas crop.

Safe Travels

to all of you on the road this weekend
and next week. Enjoy and take lots

Since our group will be small next

to reschedule the "event". It may
have to be set for the Dec. crop.

May we never forget.......

Hard to believe it's been 7 years since

I send a special prayer and thoughts
to our Armed Forces who fight for
our freedom everyday......

Is anyone

interested in participating in a Cookie Swap for
our crop in December? Which, by the way is
just 4 months from now... I know we all get busy
this time of year, but I thought it would be
fun if everyone made a different treat and we
exchanged, etc. Allows us to have different
goodies to enjoy. Just something to think about
and we can discuss at our next crop.



Work at work, work at home, laundry, grocery shopping,
misc. shopping, errands, family, telephone, net surfing,
etc, etc.........I'm running short on play time and I really
could use some. Those new toys are calling my name.

I'm listing the play dates here and will add them to the
side bar later. Angie, if you don't mind please add these
to your side bar as well. Thanks! Also, could you add
Marcheta to the bday list. Her special day is Sept. 13.

Sept. 5&6 (new)
Sept. 19&20

Oct. 10&11

Oct. 17&18 (new)

Nov. 7&8

Happy Birthday

Michelle H!!! Hope you see this is and your day was
a good one.


Thursday, July 24, 2008

Thank you

for the awesome Birthday wishes via
emails, calls and blog postings! Greatly

There's a miracle called Friendship
That dwells within the heart,
And you don't know how it happens
Or when it gets its start.
But the happiness it brings you
Always gives a special lift,
And you realize that friendship
Is God's precious gift.

I have really neglected the blog lately. Need to get
better about posting regularly. Just a quick post
to see who all is coming this weekend. Can't wait
to see all the awesome stuff some of you did this
past weekend! Stay cool and have a great day.

Decked out for the 4th!!

I'm on a roll 2 blog postings on the
same day.....
Mallory welcomed her first 4th of
July dressed in Red, White &
Blue. What a sweetie!!!

Weekend Highlights.....

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July. I wanted to head out to Georgia for a couple of days, but ended up staying home. So, Bill and I took a quick trip down to OpryMills and the Hotel. We caught a glimpse of the North American Irish Dance Championships and those kids were awesome. The costumes (priced at well over $1,500 used), makeup and hair pieces were just beautiful. The choreography and dance steps were point on everytime. Very impressive!!

Can I just say I love making these collage pics....

goodies at HL. There were 5 different word books, Love, Family, Believe, Baby and Friend
to choose from. I also spotted a new ATG gun, the shelf tags for the Bind It All, which should be in soon and new Cricut cartridges are on the way. A couple mentioned were Camping, Baseball, etc. The posted goodies were purchased at 1/2 off since they are albums.

Scrapbook Weekend has arrived!!! Good thing, I've got tons of projects I need to work on. I just need to get better organized so I can plan out layouts, etc.

I've been off most of the week and while I had good intentions to work on these things, I just didn't get around to it. My time was much better spent with the grandchildren. Priceless.


Monday, June 16, 2008

Ok, since we are airing our laundry....I thought I would post a pic of one side of my "studio". I'm in the process of purging and organizing.....
which is long overdue. I've got to get stuff off the floor, and clean off my desk and under the desk.

Friday, June 13, 2008

I'll be glad when it's time to

scrapbook again!! I've taken tons of photos in the last
two weeks...

Hot Hot Hot

Not to much to blog about today.... It's been an uneventful day.
Hope everyone has a great weekend and keeps cool.


Thursday, June 5, 2008

One of my favorite old school groups of all times is Tommy James & The Shondells......I'm sure I'm dating myself by revealing that little unknown fact. Anyway, here's some Crimson & Clover love:
After pondering whether to blog or not for quite some time - I've finally taken the plunge. I hesitated due to the fact that my life as a wife, granny of 5, scrapbooker and a full-time member of the working class might hinder my be a regular blogger. So, I'm going to give it a try and we'll see how it turns out.
