Happy Veterans Day to all

the veterans past and present who sacrificed for
our freedoms. On this day I am especially thankful
for my Dad, Brother, Sister, Uncle and Grandfather who
served our Country proudly. Love you all!

Halloween Fun at the Alumni House

and one very tired Luigi!! This is an annual
event at work and the kids really enjoy it.
Sorry you didn't make it this year Zoe but
getting the all clear from the Dr., after your

Back in the saddle

after a crazy couple of weeks.... Major renovations in
the home are finally completed. New flooring, carpeting,
painting and window treatments. Thought we would
never get finished. Still have a couple more rooms to do
but that is tabled until the first of the year.

Zoe finally had her tonsils and adenoids removed last week.
Surgery went great and she is recovering nicely. I noticed
immediate changes in her voice, and the freight train snoring
is gone!

Mom and Dad came up for a rare visit, (last one was 3 years
ago) and we had the best time taking pics and just enjoying
the time together. I also finally took some much needed time
away from the office last week and this week, but somehow
found myself there at 5:30 in the morning yesterday......
Going to take the rest of the week off - to spend with Zoe and
get back on track next week.

I am so looking forward to next weekend's crop!!! Everyone got
their costumes ready?

Just want to say I feel

very blessed and thankful for all the ladies
in my inner circle of friends! Several of us
have been scrapping for many years and we've
all been very fortunate to find many new scrappin
buds along the way........

Terri, thank you for hosting an awesome crop at
your place and for making me feel very special
as I approach the half century mark.

Lisa, what a great weekend we all had! Sorry I
missed Friday night but believe me, I would much
rather have been there than nursing a root canal.

I know several of us don't scrap much during the
summer as other activities keep us busy, but thank
you to everyone past and present - who has hosted a
crop in their home during this time of year.

Fall will be upon us soon and I hope to get some dates
posted on the calendar within the next couple of weeks.

After taking a blog break

I'm back to say I cannot stand ProvoCraft and
their sale practices - not to mention some of their
lawsuits regarding third party software.

Some of you may heard (I had not) that OMC is no longer
carrying Cricut brand products. I have ordered several
carts from them in the past and hate to hear this news.

Here is a statement from OMC's FB page:

"Due to significant price increases by Provo Craft, and changes to the way they are supporting their internet-sales distribution channel, we are not able to offer Cricut brand products after this week. We hope that in the future, Provo Craft will again allow us to serve you by carrying Cricut products."

I'm sure this will be the case with other online vendors
as well.......just a matter of time.

Marking my spot in Cyber Land....

Finally, justice has been done. But is it over? NO!

Let us brace ourselves for the Retaliation that is sure
to come by his manic followers and Martyrs.

I pray we keep our guard up and this madness
ends soon. We have lost so much already and our
Armed Forces casualities continue to rise......

Stay strong America and God Bless the USA!!!

another unstable night with Spring storms.....

I finally managed to get to sleep around 2:30 this
morning and made it to work on time. Looks like
another round of stormy weather is on course for
the end of the week - it's definitely Spring in the
Bluegrass State!

On another note.....I am looking forward to the
scrappin weekend as always. Hope to get an
email out this afternoon or tomorrow with info
on National Scrapbook weekend, which is just
around the corner.

Quick reminder

scrappin at the CH this weekend...... Looking forward to it! Sorry we will miss you Deb H., hope you are having a great visit with your family!

Just got back from

lunch and CANNOT believe I had to dodge little
rain pellets of Sleet! I thought I was seeing things
until they started sticking to my hair...........

Looking forward to some scrappin time this
weekend!! We're gonna have perfect weather
for it. That's for sure!

Elizabeth Taylor........ I loved you in Cleopatra and now

I got 2 gift sets for Christmas.

I know for those of us here at home

life goes on as we wake up to our daily routines...

But I cannot help being emotionally stricken by
the death and destruction that surrounds the
world we live in. Not just from one event but
everything and everywhere.

It's bad enough that Mother Nature is a force
that will always win - but why do we as mankind
have so much hate toward one another......

"One day your life will flash before your eyes.
Make sure it's worth watching"

Happy Birthday Deb H!

Hope you have an awesome birthday today in spite
of the dreary rainy day!!

Thursday, March 3, 2011

Just an observation.....

but why do the everyday trials and tribulations of
life have to interfere with my Scrapbooking mojo??

I am in such a creative funk these days. Hoping the
soon to be longer days and sunshine can whip me
out of it......

Best of Luck to you

Debbie H! Will be thinking of you and hoping
you have a great appt. and safe travels today!

Happy Anniversary Papaw!

You’re one of the the best, dearest things

you’ll be dearer time goes by.

Love you,

Happy Valentine's Day!

It sure is a beautiful day today!

Tuesday, February 8, 2011

Well it's been over

a week and I still don't have my voice completely
back that I lost last Monday. It's been a struggle.
The cough is still a nuisance but not as bad as it
was. Hoping to make the Cancer Crop on Sat., but
not sure at this point......

Still no dates yet for March and April - will try and
get some posted before the week is over.

Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful snow!

Just wanted to let you all know

I have scheduled our scrappin weekend
for National Scrapbook Day - our special
day that occurs on the first Saturday in
May. However, instead of the usual 3 days,
we're going to have to cut back to 2 this year.

Mother's Day is celebrated on the second
Sunday in May which happens to be the
same weekend of NSD, on May 8.

I'm sure many of you have family events
during this time and I believe it is in
the best interest that I don't schedule
crop time on this day. Personally, for me
I am fine with hanging out at the CH.

Let me know your thoughts on this.

Posted a couple of Scrappin

weekends on the sidebar. Due to the Cancer
Crop and a work trip to NOLA in February, I
was only able to get one date on the calendar for
that month. Hope to get more dates scheduled
as soon as I can make it over to the clubhouse
and go over the calendar with Management.
