Hmmm - the day didn't go as planned as I had a bleed - went up to the local ED and they reassured me that things were o.k., but did say that if I had any more concerns I would be free to go back. They did say what symptoms would be a cause of concern. Oh the joys of small town hospitals

Maybe tomorrow into the studio

Shelly you enjoy your trip, and I must say I sort of like your idea about the cards, but often I use scraps and there would not be enough to make two cards

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!

It's another gorgeous morning with a briskness to the air here where I live. I think the trees will start changing soon. I love autumn!


Maxine, oh no! Sorry you had some health complications yesterday. Healing thoughts heading your way!

Thank you, Shelly! I love blinkies!

Lynn, I hope things settled down last night. (((HUGS)))

Kelly, how is your week going?

Hugs for all the Stamp Addicts.

Now, if you'll excuse me........... I need to go do some research. I need to know what Gelatos are and what fun I'm missing.

Good morning Stamp Addicts!

It's a bright new day and Jeanette, I also love your blinkies! They are very cheerful.

Last night I worked on coloring some Christmas images to make cards for this year. I am so far behind I know I won't be able to get as many done as I have in past years.

Maxine please take care of yourself. I'm glad that there wasn't a serious problem with the bleeding, but to me says slow down. All in due time.

Shelly, sounds like a fun trip coming up for you. Hope you enjoy it. I did get your September card mailed out yesterday as well as Paige's October card and I had to resend Kelly's July card that was returned, so I'm all caught up on SA cards! Yippee!

Lynn, I hope things are looking brighter for you this morning {{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}

I have no idea what Gelatos are, but I think I better stay away from them. We did use some Prisma pencils and Gamsol at SF and I've challenged myself to use more of a mix of media in my card making instead of just Copic markers all the time.

Boss is gone most of the day today!

I would love to learn how to use them more- they are easy to transport (not heavy) and the colors are pretty..... Glad to hear you are feeling well enough to feel creative : )

Hope you have an OK rest of your day Lynn- {Hugs}

Maggie- so sorry to hear about Snowball- that is a bunch of lucky cats! Fun- I will have to get to your blog to check out your MOA fun!

Kelly- Oh I love the peace meal card idea.....hehehe Maybe for our next round- we can make a card and send the card and the same supplies to our partner, who has to make a different card..... We did that in Oriental Stamp Art, and it was so fun!

Hope your days are full of Joy and not stress from your busy schedule!

Jeanette- loving your blinkies- so fun- I have no clue how to post them, but they always brighten the day : )

Had a dental appt today, and when I cam home the power was out for 1 1/2 hours. One it was back, I made a card- I need to make a few more- lotds to do before we leave for Cincinnati on Friday. We have a wedding Sat and then will hang out at the folks- Ray will stay thru Tues and I am staying till the following Sunday. So, I may be a little MIA....

Shelly
Shelly, I love this idea!!!

It's a brand new day and I'm going to have a brand new attitude today!!!!!!! NO STRESS!!!! Well, I probably will, but have made up my mind to just deal with what comes!

Maggie, I'm so sorry about Snowball! Hugs to you.
Maxine - yikes about the bleeding! Glad you went in and at least let them check everything. Maybe just rest for a few days and no walking, etc. I'll be thinking about you.

Gelatos - I saw a video not long ago and they really looked cool. Can't wait to see what you create with them Maxine.

We've really had a couple of nice mornings around here - but then by noon it's hot again and the AC goes back on. Guess we're getting a little closer to fall weather though - which is nice. Let's just postpone winter a little longer though!!!!!!!!!!!

Will check back in later. Shelly, I peeked at a card you'd done on Facebook this morning and it looked totally gorgeous........off to check that out and do some commenting!

This is the set of gelatos that I have ordered

I would not have gone for such a large set if I had not had the gifts

Quieter day - I have walked, but as it is wet and cold outside it was up and down the passage inside for 10 minutes. Poor carpet

Gotta go - just have a visitor - back later

So they are like watercolor crayons????? Do you use anything with them, like water or the gamsol for the pencils?

I usually turn my A/C up to 81 during the day when I'm not home. Last night it was at 78 which means it wasn't even up to 81 outside. I only turned it down to 77 when I went to bed. The mornings have been beautiful, but supposed to be back up to almost 90 tomorrow and rain on Friday.

It was even on the news the other day with how many hits it has on YouTube and how people were making up their own YouTube versions of it. Ugh! Enough already!

Good Morning, all!

Rare moment at home - spending some quiet time here catching up on my floors, laundry, walking the pups! Definitely wishing for cooler temps here but it's still quite warm! My daughter has a late class today so I texted her and told her to get up - I'm treating her to lunch today at Panera Bread - we ♥ Panera!!

I'm so intriqued by your gelatos, Maxine -- they do look like the watercolor crayons, are they similiar? I would love to try those - one day!

Happy Hugs all around!

That's hilarious about the camel commercial and Youtube, etc..... I'm with you Maggie, once you've seen it, you've seen it! LOL! I do like camel but have heard they're a little stinky too!

What's Panera Bread - a restaurant? We don't have those here I don't guess.

LOL! I guess they can be kind of stinky and it takes getting used to in order to ride one.

Panera Bread is a restaurant - they make the best sweet rolls and have some great sandwiches, soups, and salads. We have a few here that are rather close to me, but out of the way, so I rarely go there. We do go when I'm at my DD's in CA. My oldest DGD worked at one of them while she was home for summer vacation and really liked working there. The owners were really nice and just loved her.

Yes, Panera Bread is a chain restaurant - kinda grab and go sandwiches, salads, pastries, yummy coffees, soups, etc! I had their new Autumn Squash soup - DIVINE!!! It's nice that dd had a late class today and I could scoop her up for a quick lunch date - she sleeps in on the only day she can, so rather than wake her up, I sent her a text to see when she got up, ROFL!! Now that's bad that I have to text my daughter down the hall in the same house!!!!!! *g*

Yea on getting the gelatoes Maxine!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to see what you make with them now!

The Panera Bread sounds yummy!!! I'll have to check and see if they have one in San Antonio but have just never seen them there.

Another day passes and not crafting..........I'm still not sure what took up my whole day (but sure it was probably something important anyway! LOL!)

See everyone tomorrow!

Default Hello

dropping in to say hello!

Watching Nashville, then hubby wants to watch Breaking Bad. It is a bit on the dark side- so one episode is all we can take at a time- no marathon here. The writing is something- its like a season ending episode every time where something crazy happens and you cannot wait to see what happens next.....

I was able to clean today and got some creative time in too...... working on some TJ cards. One of the techniques- I just could not wrap my head around it, and it took me HOURS to get a card done, then I went to town and got another cranked out. Whew......!

WOW Maxine- the cool thing about the big set of Gelato's is all of the shading you will be able to do. We have done a couple of TJ techniques with them- they are like watercolors a bit.

Maggie- Gelatos are like a tube of chapstick- you apply them to the paper and you can add water or just blend them in with your fingers. You can also draw with them onto the stamp and spritz with water, then stamp onto the cardstock. You can scribble them on, and drip water across the top of the page, and you get drips down the paper- Oh, lots of fun....

Lynn, hoping all is well with you and hope you get some creative time soon!

Kelly- I love Panera too- oh- Stephi texts from her room when she is at home......bother! Glad you are enjoying some down time : )

Jeanette- love the graphic- that commercial makes me chuckle sometimes- and sometimes annoys me.....

OK- I am going to try to blog hop tonight- working tomorrow.

Shelly

'morning Fellow Stamp Addicts! (Yes, you're right, the Good is missing.... because it has been a rough one!)

Shortly after doing some morning chores, I turned on my computer and sat down with a nice warm cup of coffee! That was a BIG mistake this morning. One of the first emails I read was from Leelou - the creator of the free blog templates that so many of us use. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY CURRENT BLOG TEMPLATE!!! Well............. she made a HUGE announcement. She's changing the way she does business which means on October 19 - just over a week off!!! - the free templates will disappear and my understanding is that my blog (as well as EVERYONE else who is currently using a Leelou blog template) has to be changed to something else BEFORE then or my blog will be wonky and template-less. EEK!!!!

Yep, not a good way to start my morning!

Does anyone know where I can get a cheap - or totally FREE - 3-column blog template????

Jeanette, I have no idea about your blog template. I just use a plain Jane one from Blogger.
I can't do that... since I need 3 columns and all blogger has is 2 columns.

I've spent the past two hours looking for another template source. Found a couple that are okay - but can't get either of them to download. UGH!

Shelly, I thought Breaking Bad ended?! I must have the wrong show! I don't watch tv, I just can't seem to fit it in! But I did watch American Horror Story with my dd last night - freaky show! And of course, they are HUUUUUUUUUGE Walking Dead fans - that will be on in it's full glory this Sunday - she wants to have a zombie premiere party, LOL! The whole things gives me the jeebies but hey, all in the perspective, right!
Have fun with your TJ cards!

I'm SO far behind in my card making! Next week, I'll return in full glory I do miss it, part of the reason I was glad to unpack most of the Cabana and put it back, ROFL!!!

I'm not sure what you are wanting when you say three column Jeanette, but here are some freebie blog backgrounds I stumbled across yesterday

I having now gone and looked at your blog layout Jeanette, I had a 'blogger' layout like that until just recently.....

Thank you, thank you, thank you, for all your birthday greetings. I had a great day, apart from the fact the landline had a hissy fit and would not accept inward calls. Thankfully my brother rang on the cell phone and told me, and then the Telco diverted my calls to the cell for the rest of the day (at no cost) and I got a couple of very special calls in the evening. Some of the grandies also 'skyped' me so I had a wonderful family day.

I did not get to play (again) but the body did not want to stop completely at 2 p.m., so I had a rest and read up about the gelatos in the little book that came with them at that point

I also managed a walk around the (small) block too - slow, but done, another goal down.... all in all a great day, and will continue today with my brother and his wife calling in - with cake

I was able to clean today and got some creative time in too...... working on some TJ cards. One of the techniques- I just could not wrap my head around it, and it took me HOURS to get a card done, then I went to town and got another cranked out. Whew......!

WOW Maxine- the cool thing about the big set of Gelato's is all of the shading you will be able to do. We have done a couple of TJ techniques with them- they are like watercolors a bit.

Maggie- Gelatos are like a tube of chapstick- you apply them to the paper and you can add water or just blend them in with your fingers. You can also draw with them onto the stamp and spritz with water, then stamp onto the cardstock. You can scribble them on, and drip water across the top of the page, and you get drips down the paper- Oh, lots of fun....

Lynn, hoping all is well with you and hope you get some creative time soon!

Kelly- I love Panera too- oh- Stephi texts from her room when she is at home......bother! Glad you are enjoying some down time : )

Jeanette- love the graphic- that commercial makes me chuckle sometimes- and sometimes annoys me.....

OK- I am going to try to blog hop tonight- working tomorrow.

Shelly
I think I'd need a whole day to work on a TJ card. I get the newsletter all the time, but never have time to really play with the ideas. Do you have yours on your blog?

The Gelatos sounds like fun, but one thing I don't need right now is another coloring medium. They do sound a lot like the SU Watercolor crayons. Do they still sell those?????

Shortly after doing some morning chores, I turned on my computer and sat down with a nice warm cup of coffee! That was a BIG mistake this morning. One of the first emails I read was from Leelou - the creator of the free blog templates that so many of us use. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY CURRENT BLOG TEMPLATE!!! Well............. she made a HUGE announcement. She's changing the way she does business which means on October 19 - just over a week off!!! - the free templates will disappear and my understanding is that my blog (as well as EVERYONE else who is currently using a Leelou blog template) has to be changed to something else BEFORE then or my blog will be wonky and template-less. EEK!!!!

Yep, not a good way to start my morning!

Does anyone know where I can get a cheap - or totally FREE - 3-column blog template????
Oh, my goodness! That would not be the way that I would want to start my day at all. I use Blogger and it works fine for me. I have 3 columns - each side for widgets and the center for my posts. Hope you can get it figured out soon.

Maggie, I'm soooooo confused. I've looked and looked at the blogger templates and I don't see any that are three columns... but you say yours is. What am I missing???

Again, I use Blogger and I have 3 columsn. I think you just have to choose the template that you want in the Design area.

Oh, I just went to your blog... you have a shabby blogs template. I guess I misunderstood. I thought you meant you had a blogger template. This leelou thing affects anyone who is currently using one of her free templates - which is thousands of bloggers, I'm assuming. I have blogger, but the template I am currently using for my layout is a fee leelou template. So on the 19th it will go away. Not my blog... but my template. It will be a wonky mess unless I figure something out before then. EEK!

And I've tried and tried to download other templates today - even from the Shabby Blogs site where yours is from - and none of them will download for me.

Your template isn't from blogger... it's from Shabby Blogs. It says so on the left upper side of your blog.
