I just learned a new word during the weather report--Graupel. It is hard rain, kind of like little Styrofoam balls. We had that too! Where the Heck is Spring?!

Tonight we are hosting card club--Euchre--for our church group. There are 18 coming, so we will have five tables going in the family room downstairs and all of the food will be upstairs.
sounds like you had a FABULOUS FULLY creative day and evening Barb!♥

Hi CG's....hope you are having a good weekend!

We had my BIL & SIL over for dinner last night. We have NOT been having summer weather, but wanted summer food! We had grilled chicken, potato salad, watermelon, chips and rosemary bread {anyone seen a carb lately?! LOL}

Yes, I'm sorry, you missed the carb fest! It was really good though! Did I forget to mention Devil's Food Cake too?

Did you ever wonder why they call it Devil's Food Cake? I did! The difference is that DFC is made with cocoa instead of chocolate and has coffee in it. This makes it different from chocolate cake, as well as the pH balance is higher with the addition of more baking soda, thus similar to a Red Velvet Cake and with the red theme, hence the thought and name of Devil's Food Cake.

Um, I just think it tastes good!

Good Morning Calendar Girls!

I'm rushing through the threads - I have much too much to do today! EEK!!! I leave tomorrow morning for a week (and need to get things ready to go - plus things in order here for my two guys who will be staying home without me).

I won't be on the threads while I'm gone, since I'll be much too busy. I'll see all of you again the end of next week!

Hugs!!!

Good Morning--I am going to spend some time in the stamp room today to get a few projects done. I want to make some cards for a challenge that is being held on Saturday at Camp Stamp in Oga--the quarterly stamping event that my demo holds at a local hotel. The great part is that this time there are 4 other SCS ladies--and all of them are Calendar Girls--Terry, LJ, Darlene and Carol, who will be joining me this time. And--Jeanette is coming to my house on Monday to join the 4 of us for a fun day of stamping, laughing, hugs, laughing and I am sure a bit of razzing........ I cannot wait!

Good Morning--another day of stamping for me and getting things ready for my weekend guests. Darlene and Carol will be here tomorrow afternoon, so I have a few more things to get ready...................

I did make my card yesterday along with a couple of others that are due to post on my blog in the next few days--so I need to take photo today and do the write ups. The hardest part is done---the cards!

Mom passing is imminent...it could be just a few days

Dr's don't know but it is near.....

Please keep Tammy (SiL) and all of her family in your prayers...
This all started very very sudden......

Good Morning--the weekend is Here! A quick trip to the grocery store and then I get to wait until my specials guests arrive this afternoon. I cannot wait!

I am not sure how much I will be online from now until Monday night as we have quite a few things packed into the next few days--a fish fry tonight, stamp camp class tomorrow, a trip to Creative Pals, eating out at Motor-the restaurant at the Harley-Davidson Museum, a tour of Sprecher Brewery and then a mini shoe-box swap on Monday when Jeanette is able to join us. A Busy Time Ahead--but I Love It!

Good morning ladies! My card will be up by the end of the day....too busy this week to get it done (not a good enough excuse since we have had the challenge forever....but still an excuse!).

Spending time with Carol, Darlene, Barb and LJ was so much fun yesterday!

OMGOSH, I completely BLEW IT with this posting this month - I FORGOT!!

FRET NOT, my card is NOW UP!!!

I can't believe TODAY is the 28th!! It totally snuck up on me and omgosh, I was floored when I saw the calendar in the Cabana (half-bana, lol!) and was like "WHAT!" I had to come in and see what the theme was. Carol, I hope I did your theme justice - I just tweaked it a bit since the flower/recycling theme is getting too much in my crafting repetoire and I really wanted to showcase a gorgeous stamp from Barb!

Big hugs, I"ll be 'round to see your creations soon!

Hello From Ladies Weekend on Jenna Lane!

We are having a wonderful time! Darlene and Carol arrived Friday afternoon and we jumped back in my car to head to Kohl's for a bit of shopping--imagine that! We then went out for a fish fry at our favorite restaurant! Yesterday was a fun-filled day--and an long one................. LJ arrived around a bit after 7 and we headed to Camp Stamp-in-Oga where Terry met us at the hotel doors with a big smile and hugs! We had a great morning in class, making 5 sweet cards! I won a raffle prize (a stamp set) and also took 2nd place in one of the card challenges (I won one of the new in-color ink pads and some cardstock-Strawberry Slush--yummy color!) The picture below is from the class.

We then had lunch and made a trip to Creative Pals to check out the Whipper Snapper selections as well as the other lines they carry--and we each walked out with a package of new toys! Then a quick stop at Kopp's for a frozen custard cone! Back to my house with Terry along for a wonderful class on coloring with a local friend--awesome information! Supper late with Rebecca making salmon and some interesting salads--it seemed everyone liked the meal..... We chatted around the table until 11:00, when Terry left to drive home and we all went to bed.

This morning we all went to church and have had a change of plans for the rest of the day. Originally we were going to head to the Harley-Davidson restaurant for lunch, a ride along Lake Shore Drive and then a tour of a local brewery that makes soda as well as beer. Well--we are all OK with just staying here and playing with ink and paper, sharing stamps and other supplies and chatting.

Tomorrow, Jeanette arrives and Terry is coming back to join us for a mini-shoebox swap. We may take another trip to Creative Pals with Jeanette and a stop at another LSS. I am sure tomorrow will be a day with lots and lots of laughs and I will post more pictures!

Barb, I'm so glad you are all having so much fun!!!

I'm happy to say my card is made and posted, on the right day. I had big plans to get it made yesterday, but my day quickly changed when my next door neighbors home caught fire and is no longer liveable. I spent the day watching the fireman tending to the house (fire was at 10:30am, last firemen left at midnight last night). The good news is everyone made it out of the house unharmed, the bad news, nothing can be saved and they are going to be tearing the house down, they said today, but I'm thinking it will be tomorrow. So I spent the rest of the day collecting donations for the single mom with the 3 kids that rented there. I've already gotten them piles of clothes, a Wii with several games and almost $500. That is just from the people that were at the school Talent Show last night. The sad part is her two younger boys and my two younger girls play together outside every day. SInce they are going to have to find a new place to live (they rented in a multi family home), they are going to lose that "kids next door" connection.

I spent the day watching the fireman tending to the house (fire was at 10:30am, last firemen left at midnight last night). The good news is everyone made it out of the house unharmed, the bad news, nothing can be saved and they are going to be tearing the house down, they said today, but I'm thinking it will be tomorrow. So I spent the rest of the day collecting donations for the single mom with the 3 kids that rented there. I've already gotten them piles of clothes, a Wii with several games and almost $500. That is just from the people that were at the school Talent Show last night. The sad part is her two younger boys and my two younger girls play together outside every day. SInce they are going to have to find a new place to live (they rented in a multi family home), they are going to lose that "kids next door" connection.
Oh Linda what sad news about the house and your kids losing the connection. But so glad to hear that everyone made it out safely. You are such a wonderful neighbor and friend to be gathering up donations for them and doing it so quickly. They will be so blessed.

Hello!

Barb, I am so glad that you girls are having such a good time. I love seeing all of your smiling faces! Tomorrow will be a blast.

Linda, I am so sorry to hear about your neighbors house. Thank goodness, they are all okay. For the owners of the house, it is probably best they are doing a tear down. Our neighbor's father was an important ranking fire guy (like my terminology?!) in New York. He used to investigate fires with the mob...for reals. He has the best stories - I love his visits. He always says that you never want to renovate a burned house, they never are the same after a fire. Then laughing - but kinda not if you know what I mean LOL! - he says if your house is on fire, throw a bottle of vodka on it and run! Who knew vodka was so versatile....

Have a great Monday girls!

April, I am so sorry you are not feeling so good. Things sound so busy - take your time and get some rest. Cards can wait! Take care.
