Thanks Sara... we overslept after staying up most of the night cleaning... now we are back to cleaning some more... good luck on getting your home in order.. but a condo isn't a bad place to have a baby is it??? The market is slowly coming back here in TN... hoping to get what I paid for it in 2008 after realtor fees and stuff... hope we can find a buyer in this market! Kathi

good thoughts are going your way, and remember, you can change it when they leave. LOL Being a parent myself, I know how we can sometimes be a pain. But only because we love ya.
Enjoy your parents visit

Hi ladies!

Just wanted to pop in and say hi! Also wanted to let you know that I'm planning to make a return to card making land soon. My mom and I are going to the rubber stamp and scrapbook expo on Saturday and I'm really looking forward to getting some new stuffs! I'm finally getting into a routine here at school and am working on getting over a nasty cold that should hopefully be over by Saturday and leave me ready for the three weekends of crafty goodness I have planned coming up!

Sounds like your parents are quite the pair!

Good luck with the house sell. Will be praying for you.

Re-doing is a big job! Good luck to your home sale too.

Got a new hairstyle tonight. I had the beautician put a body perm in my hair. It has been well over 25 years since I had my last perm! I really like what she did so far. I didn't even have to sit under a dryer. Times have changed...

Also bought some paint today to paint my craft room and another bedroom. DH doesn't know that I got it yet. Boy will he be surprised!!! LOL!!! I plan to do this myself.

Just updated my avie with my pic of my hair when the stylist finished. Of course, I can never get it to look how she does it. It is not a curly perm, just body.

I still haven't told DH about the paint yet. I am waiting to see when he is out of town to embark on my project. The color I am painting it is called Gleeful by Sherwin Williams. It is a lime green color. I think it will work well with my pinks and purples that I have in my room.

I went to a class with Tim Holtz at my LSS today. I have another one tomorrow. I posted a pic of me and Tim on my blog and my inky fingers. I had a blast to say the least. And you can see how flat my hair is in that pic too.

Hi Ladies,
I'm finally getting back into my blogging and creating groove. When I look at my blog last week it had been a full two weeks since I had posted anything. But I'm getting back into my routine. I've already schedule my Daydream Designs post for Monday and have started the artwork for my Tuesday's Testimonial post. I've been invited back to the Classy Cards N Such Online store design team and I'm very excited about that. I get free product in exchange for designing with it and a nice little discount. The owner will also throw a little bit more free product my way in exchange for one video or pdf tutorial a month. With economic times the way they are, this was truly a blessing in disguise. I'll have my first card up for her on Saturday.

Dell sounds like you've been having a good time! A new do and a class with Tim Holtz! My oh my. I'm envious.

Have a great week ladies.

Your DT's sound awesome! You do gorgeous work and so happy that you are able to get some free stuff for doing it! That always helps.

The classes were awesome and I still haven't came down from the creative high he eludes! It is unbelievable! I spent tonight finishing my first Coordinations box. Once it dries, I will post it. If you ever get a chance to attend his class; all I can say is RUN to it! Worth every penny you spend.

Good morning! I have put up a new post and am going to be around to visit you all this morning. We had a wonderful weekend and great turnout for my Dad's 75th birthday party. Now the weather is starting to turn colder here, and things should slow down a little bit (fingers crossed).
Sorry about your test, Dell, but I'm sure you'll get it the next time. Sounds like a tough one. But getting in on a TH class, wow!, that would be fantastic!
Okay, I'm off to have a looksie at what you ladies have been up to

Kathi, you are so sweet to offer. I will definitely give you a call if I run into a snag. I do work with a couple of RN's so hopefully they can help me and I also have my daughter who is one too. I will keep you number though. Thank you.

Hello everyone! Been awhile since I had a chance to pop in here. Hope all is well. We are having our 1 year anniversary celebration at The Perfect Sentiment and that has made for a crazy week! The good thing is we posted the last challenge today and the deadline for participants to have their entries in is not until Oct. 30th and we are not doing any challenges in between so that we give the team and myself a nice little break from designing. With all of this going on and trying to get my projects done and posts up on time it has left very little time for chatting or visiting your blogs. Hoping to get to that in the next couple of days and the other thing I keep beating myself up about is not using my Cricut and the stack of cartridges I own. I did manage to use it tonight because one cartridge contained a cut I needed for a sketch challenge but, I really have to make this thing a priority. And I've got to stop buying cartridges.

That is the one bad thing about being back on the online store design team. She doesn't sell Cricut products and so I have to use the traditional die-cuts she sells like Cheery Lynn Designs and Spellbinders. I am allowed to use my Cricut on my projects (at least she hasn't told me I can't). Her only stipulation so far has been that I include three products from her store. But, watch me make something using a really intricate cut like something from the Paper Lace cartridge and then the customers start asking, where is that die-cut? I just know it will happen. LOL

What's going on in your lives ladies?

I had every intention of getting a few blog posts up this week... Planning to go back to the way I was handling my blog last year while I was in school. Make a bunch of cards on the weekend pre-write Blog posts on Sunday and Monday when I got back to school. And then post them throughout the week... While not only did I stay away longer then I planned... I intended to come back last week but When I went home the previous weekend I found out my puppy passed away so the weekend was pretty much shot with crafting and thus no blog posts last week... But I also managed to leaving my camera sitting on my couch at home so I have no pictures.... So I'll hopefully get a couple posts up on Friday (at least 2 maybe 3)

Sorry to hear about your puppy Sami. I know that was hard.

Thank You, She was old and really sick... to be honest I didn't really expect her to live long past Christmas if she made it to Christmas... it doesn't necessarily make it easier but somehow knowing it was coming did help a little bit.

The good thing is we posted the last challenge today and the deadline for participants to have their entries in is not until Oct. 30th and we are not doing any challenges in between so that we give the team and myself a nice little break from designing. With all of this going on and trying to get my projects done and posts up on time it has left very little time for chatting or visiting your blogs. Hoping to get to that in the next couple of days and the other thing I keep beating myself up about is not using my Cricut and the stack of cartridges I own. I did manage to use it tonight because one cartridge contained a cut I needed for a sketch challenge but, I really have to make this thing a priority. And I've got to stop buying cartridges.

That is the one bad thing about being back on the online store design team. She doesn't sell Cricut products and so I have to use the traditional die-cuts she sells like Cheery Lynn Designs and Spellbinders. I am allowed to use my Cricut on my projects (at least she hasn't told me I can't). Her only stipulation so far has been that I include three products from her store. But, watch me make something using a really intricate cut like something from the Paper Lace cartridge and then the customers start asking, where is that die-cut? I just know it will happen. LOL

What's going on in your lives ladies?
Sounds like you are super busy with all the DT stuff. Your work is amazing though.

It is hard not to buy those cartridges though. I so feel your pain!!! I just got Folk Art at Michael's the other day. It is an exclusive for M's. I did manage to already use it and that is my strategy. Cut something within the week I buy it.

Sam, hugs to you on your loss! That is so heartbreaking even if you were sort of expecting it.

I celebrated my 50th birthday yesterday. My DS flew home from VA and surprised me and then the entire family took me on an adventure to Disney's Blizzard Beach! We had a blast!!! I posted the entire story and some pics on my blog. Other than that, had a most relaxing, wonderful weekend.
