Oh my! Keep warm Zella! "They" say it is supposed to be a bad winter for the East USA. I fall in that category too, it is only in the low 40's for high here today......that's extremely abnormal......I'm hoping not to see any of that white stuff here until Christmas time. You know in the south, everything shuts down with snow! LOL

I am home and it feels so good. I love being away at conferences, but like being home even more........................... I also had to scrape the snow and ice that came to visit yesterday off of my car this morning--not fun! I have some errands to run tomorrow, but hope to get some crafting time too!

Happy Friday! So who's got big plans for the weekend? Part of my weekend will be spent blowing my nose....UGH!!!

Tonight I have to wrap up a swap and get it packaged to mail tomorrow (and I'm a day late...UGH!). I think we're going to go to the gym tonight - it's a great time because NO ONE is there on Friday nights. LOL!!! I think we'll also tackle the Dollar Store tonight...we try to go only once a month...but when we go it's a bunch of stuff.

Tomorrow I'll be stamping some - catching up on some DT work. I also need to make some cards to mail next week. Of course there's other exciting things to do tomorrow too like clean, laundry, grocery shop....yippee!! LOL!!!

Sunday is church AM & PM. I'm excited about services this weekend because the focus is on Missions and we are launching our new program...I'm excited to see what it's going to be and who we are supporting!

Then Monday is back to work. Oh, and sometime this weekend I should sit down and figure out what Thanksgiving dinner is going to be so I can start getting things together.....will do the shopping for that next weekend....wow - hard to believe Thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away!

I know I've been so lax in commenting on blogs lately....hope to get caught up on that this weekend....honestly I know I can't go back and comment on every single post but I'll hit you all this weekend for sure.

Happy Friday to all my GALS!

DH is home with an irritated, bulging lower disc, in quite a bit of pain. We did get him to the doc yesterday....no rupture.....so that is good....but after a pain shot, steroids and muscle relaxers.....he is still in some pain. ugh
DS is home from school with a bad cough and stopped up head. ugh
I'm feeling odd having everyone home on a week day! LOL

Sadly I didn't visit hardly any blogs over the weekend....it was a whirlwind plus with my nose either being so stuffy I can hardly breathe or running so much that I need to just have a box of Kleenex with me at all times...UGH! I hate being sick - I don't have time for this! LOL!!!

Good Morning Crafty Gals! Remember me?

Yikes! I've been gone a looooooooooooong time. And it hasn't been completely fun. LOL! As you know, we went on vacation - we had a GREAT vacation!

We got home late Friday night and Saturday was spent doing a mountain of laundry, getting the Bible study ready to teach on Sunday, etc. Then we had a fright on Sunday, which has engulfed my life with anxiety (sleeplessness, nightmares, etc) and laborious cleanup. Our house and church were in the three blocks of our town that were impacted by a tornado. Fortunately, it didn't touch down, but from the looks of the trees, it raced through about 12-15' in the air... right over our house. We have no basement so scrambled into the interior bathroom in our home. Our Brock was such a trooper - he rushed in there with us without a question as to why we were acting so crazy. We hadn't any more than gotten into the bathroom that a loud knock came to our front door... so DH went and answered the door and let our terrified neighbor who lives in a trailer in. He joined us in our cramped bathroom. Talk about neighborly bonding.

When the tornado had passed - which didn't take long, we discovered devastation outside, but fortunately our home and lives were spared. It toppled some trees completely - on the school property directly across from our church. Our church had 3 severely damaged trees - they are so compromised that we are seeking someone to take them the rest of the way down. The city did clear the branches on one of them because it was in danger of hitting their power lines. Our yard lost a big part of a tree - it, too, will have to come down. The section of tree hit DH's truck and he has a broken windshield, dented fender, and dings on the top and hood of the truck. He's working at getting an adjuster to look at it - not sure how quickly that will happen.

Our neighborhood lost power because two electric poles came down taking the lines with them. They got us back up before bedtime Sunday night - though the church was without power until Monday evening.

Cleanup has been exhausting - exacerbated by a lack of sleep due to severe nightmares.

Oh, and to make matters worse, yesterday the piece that fills the opening to the "attic space" above the garage came tumbling down - yep! It's right over my Cubby Hole! So more messes to clean up. UGH! DH says it probably was loosened by the tornado and finally came loose yesterday. Yikes! When the tornado was passing through - the reason I knew it was is because of the WHOOSHING sounds in the garage. I thought the garage was going to explode! I was in the laundry room which is right beside the garage. My DH was in the extra bedroom watching the weather report on TV and he heard the freight train sound the tornado was making. So he gathered Brock and we all rushed to the bathroom.

On top of all that, this week's schedule - meetings and such - is horrendous. Either DH or I (or both of us) have meetings scheduled EVERY day and tonight is our church's annual Thanksgiving Dinner. Needless to say, I am so far behind on everything............. and would love to crawl in bed and sleep instead. LOL!

I'm so far behind that I don't have time to read and catch up... so please let me know if I missed anything important. THANKS!

Oh Jeanette! So glad that you and the family are ok!!! And that your home and church survived. Things can be replaced....so while there is clean-up to be done and trucks to be repaired - I'm thankful that your family (including you) are safe and sound! I had a friend who went through a tornado and she also talked about that freight train sound. Her town was hit pretty hard. She showed me pictures she took after it was over....one was of a car hanging out of the side of a building - on the 2nd floor!! I visited her almost a year later and you could still see damage. I'm praying for you my friend - that He will give you peace to take away the nightmares and strength to continue through the week with your meetings and cleanup. Ah, your church has much to be thankful for at this years annual Thanksgiving dinner. Love you!

Make sense? Let me know if you have any questions.

March ~ **March 5th Challenge**

Show some love to Carolina this month. Carolina is going through some tough decisions right now regarding a move to the States. She and her family need our thoughts and prayers. She hasn't had time to get crafty lately. That is sad because she is such a wonderful crafter! Her creations are out of this world.
Carolina love "My Favorite Things" stamps, bright colors and mixing different patterned papers on one creation...just to name a few. Please visit her blog to be totally inspired! Please CASE (copy with a few of your own changes/touches) some beautiful card or project from her blog. In your blog link back to the project you CASED. If you just went with inspiration and not one particular creation on her blog, that is fine too
HUGS Carolina!

We are showing love to Zella this month! Zella is our GAL for July! She likes to create with cute images like animals and flowers. She loves (I believe) bright colors. She makes beautiful inspirational cards also. Look through her beautiful blog, find something you love and get busy!
As an extra challenge this month, I know Zella loves sending her cards to be used at crisis centers and the like so if you could send your card (and a few extras if you're feeling froggy) to a worthy cause (like cards for a cure, cards on a mission, operation write home, etc), I know that would put a big ole smile on Zella's face.

August ~ **August 5th Challenge**

We are showing love to Sassy this month! Sassy (Joan) is our GAL for August! She loves bright colors, flowers and ribbon. She makes the prettiest altered items. I mean have you seen what she did with that rock! Hello!!!! AWESOME! I have also seen some beautiful journals on her blog. So, there are many, many, many things to inspire you for August. Go look through her blog and get inspired!!!!!

September ~ Sharon is our Gal of the month. She is our card making Queen! She creates faster than anyone I know. It amazes me how many cards and kits she finishes at one retreat. She creates lots of soft, floral cards and loves using patterned paper. Let's here it for Sharon! I can't wait to see what everyone makes to honor her.

October ~ Me (Melina)......CASE me.

November ~ Diane is our GAL of the month. She has a very pretty style. Please visit her blog to see all her yummy creations.

December ~Post pics of your Holiday decorations in your home or post pics of your Christmas cards you will be sending out this year.

Works for me...since I'm actually decorating for Christmas this year. LOL!! The last 4 or 5 years we haven't decorated because we don't have kids and no one ever came over....neither one of us really cared all that much so we just didn't do it. This year since my mom and brother are coming over for Christmas dinner we figured we better go out and buy a tree, etc.

Good Morning Crafty Gals!


Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow! (at Barb's house, not mine, please!)

Yikes! I don't send Christmas cards!!! Guess that means I'll have to show a Christmas decoration. Oh wait! I don't have those yet either. YIKES!!! I'm usually half way finished putting up the forest by now and I haven't even cleaned house to start the process yet. Must get busy!!!

Zella, sounds like you have a fun Christmas planned!

Oh the weather outside is frightful......ok, maybe not frightful but there's this white stuff on the ground and covering my car! At least it's only an inch so far....they are saying 1-3 tonight overnight...and our high tomorrow isn't even supposed to hit 30! It's just way too early for this!! But at least I'm indoors....watching the Buckeyes!! O-H-I-O!

Last night I went to Pat Catan's (craft store) to buy a Christmas present. I have 5 secret sisters at church and one of my spies told me that one of them is really into scrapbooking so I went there and bought her a bunch of stuff. Yes, I have spies. We reveal on Dec.14th at a luncheon and so I've asked someone who is close to each of them to find out what they really want. So far 3 have reported back to me.

Tomorrow is church (AM & PM) so that will take up the day - of course with a nap in the afternoon. LOL!!! Might even find some time to make a card or two in the afternoon. This morning I made 4 (for DT responsibilities). And I also need to get my Thanksgiving cards out and get them addressed and ready to go out on Monday. I also went to the library today to pick up a few books that were on hold for me. I like to have a book to read at work to read on my lunch hour. I don't go anywhere -just sit at my desk and eat a yogurt.

At least next week is a short week at work...but it's going to be CRAZY! There's LOTS to do next week!!! But lots to do means the days just fly by.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

Hello Ladies--Good Sunday Morning!

I had a great time at the stamp show in Madison yesterday. Tim Holtz was there and I spent some time watching his demos. Awesome Projects and such a Creative Guy! I got a couple of new stamps, some dies and a few embossing folders.

We had some friends over last night and enjoyed their company. Today is Packer Game Day--and wash day.............

I sure hope you have a Great One!

Good Morning from Snowy SE Wisconsin! Yup--it is snowing again and they say this time it will stick and stay awhile............... I know that other parts of the US have it much worse--so stay safe today!

I am going to play in the stamp room all day today and hope to get ahead on some cards challenges and DT posts with the holidays coming up. I also need to start to swap out the Snow/Santa cards to get them postal tomorrow afternoon.

Have a Marvelous Monday.................. remember it is a short week!

Hello Gals

Popped in to see how you are doing. Well, it's after midnight here. I had a long Monday.
A family friend passed away....cancer. She was only 52. So so sad. We went to the funeral home...stood in line for 2 hours before we got to the family. She was very loved by a lot of people...made a big impact on a lot of lives. She leaves behind two daughters, 1 of which had just announced that she was pregnant. Our friend had 2 grandsons from her other daughter. She found out the day she died that her other daughter was having a girl. It's like she held on just long enough to hear the news and then....4 hours later she was gone. I've cried and cried. I don't understand....but thank the Lord I will one day.

Good night all.
Sweet dreams
