Glad to hear you and the Dr got on o.k. and it was nothing more than a pull something, Lynn. Oh, and enjoy your shopping while in the city for your specs

DH's left eye has got worse.... they gave him another injection, and we go back in four weeks not six this time.

The leg is improving, but slowly, thanks .

Sorry to hear that DH's eye has gotten worse. I'll be keeping you guys in my prayers. Glad that your leg is feeling better. If it's sciatica, some leg and low back stretches will help.

Finally got a chance to check out your blog. Your salt card is fabulous! I really like the earthy tones you used for it. I'm working on mine and hope to finish it up tonight.

Hope your trip was good to the eye clinic and all is ok - and your leg starts feeling better!

Jeanette, you should be ashamed saying your card today was ugly!!! Oh My Goodness!!! I loved it!

Darlene - big hugs sent your way as I can just image how hard it is to deal with all this and then work on the top of everything. Hang in there.

Still colder than blue blazes here but suppose to warm back up to the 70's over the weekend.....then probably get cold again. Grrrrrr..........And another BIG Grrrrr......I woke up this morning and started to put my glasses on and the arm broke completely off! Yikes! So, off to the city I go tomorrow to see what, if anything, they can do. But, there's a plus side to things maybe.......San Antonio's only stamping store is going out of business and everything is 40% off! YEAH! So, after the eye business I'm going to make my way down there. It's on the other side of town but if I have to go anyway, might as well make the best of it all. I never shop there because they're terribly expensive but maybe now I can find somethings if they aren't all picked over.

Oh, my doctor visit yesterday....yes, he was very glad to see me! LOL!! I knew he was probably missing me terribly. He's a cutie so it's always nice to go and let him poke around on me a bit. LOL!!! I'm fine - just pulled something which I figured it would be, but like I told him - at this age, I figured I needed it checked out.
LOL! How often do you fake being sick Lynn? Glad that you checked out okay though.

What? I can't believe that the store is closing in San Antonio. I hope you find some good deals.

Maxine, so sorry to hear about your husbands eye! At least he's able to get the injections and hopefully they are good.

It's just an all day affair to go to the city it seems. Got things squared away on the glasses and also am getting some prescription (bifocal) sunglasses! I'm very excited about that and they weren't as expensive as I thought they'd be. Of course I got the less expensive frames. You can spend a fortune on those things. Don't think I've had any prescription sunglasses in about 20 years.....been doing the clip on kind and just hate them.

San Antonio Arts (formerly Stamp Antonio) is closing at the end of February. Their sale started Tuesday and so everything was very picked over today. I couldn't get there on Tuesday due to so much ice up there on the roads. The lady that owns it said she almost didn't get to work and when she got there that there were ladies lined up outside the door. Not too many stamps left at all, but I managed to get a couple. They do a lot of mixed media stuff there and scrap booking so a lot of it I just wasn't interested in that much. Did get some red embossing paste and a couple of embossing powders....some ColorBox spots of ink and some glitter paper. The best (if I ever use them) were Tim Holtz Distress markers. Got nine of those in just whatever colors they had left. They were only around $1.00 each so that was worth it. Have any of y'all ever used the distress markers? I think I'm going to have to watch a couple of videos on those things.

Anyway, that pretty well completed the trips except a couple of stops for Jim (tools to ogle over!! LOL).

OH Maxine, I'm sorry to hear your dh's eye isn't improving as fast as they hoped. I'll keep praying - you're doing a wonderful job as support team!

Lynn, glad you got into the 'city' I guess that's one thing I take for granted here. As much as I like to book it out of here and head for the hills, we're here and so why not make the best of it Sounds like you made out like a bandit with the new toys! I can't remember the last time I bought anything but that's because I didn't need it, hee hee!

LONG day here - PTA, volunteering at the library, lunch with my college dd - oh bliss!! Then pick ups from school, take one to show rehearsal, one to piano, back to pick up others, finally we were all home in time for homeworks, studying for tests tomorrow. And the teacher texted and said she'll need me for a few hours in the am in the classroom - don't you love it, texting with teachers, LOL! Who remembers bringing in a NOTE, folded in half and signed, LOL!!!!

I got mine done last night, and I'll have it on my blog tomorrow. I used my b/g for a card for the Sunshine Mail DT. Not crazy about the technique or the card but I did it!.

I used coarse salt for mine and I think it would have been better with regular salt. Also I tried embossing my glossy c/s before I put the reinkers on it and I really don't like the way it turned out either. Certainly not like it was in the video on the tutorial.

Maggie, Ill look forward to seeing your card tomorrow.

I used the coarse salt on mine, too......... but I don't think that was my problem. I'm thinking I didn't like the muddled colors I used.

WOO HOO!!! Darlene's card arrived today and it is GORGEOUS!!! So many wonderful features - like the most beautiful DP ever, embossed sentiment and butterfly, swirls and layers, and ribbon. It's a work of art!

Darlene, THANK YOU! For the STUNNING card and all the "gifts" you sent, too. I really appreciate all you've done to spoil me this month!

LOL, I don't really have much choice Today I had a little girl at school ask me are you just a mom or do you have a job? I wanted to say "um, that's job enough!" LOL! But it's all good Truly no one can say I sit on the couch watching soaps and eating bon-bons all day! (Im doing it wrong, aren't I? LOL!!)

Well today was a pretty crappy day overall but happy to finally get online, and be in a happy place! My dh offered to make dinner but I said the kids could eat a light fare -- Ohhhh the "S" word here -- soup, salad, and sammies!!

I need to get to your blogs, visit, comment, leave some love .......... not enough hours in the day!

LOL, you are too cute! So is that Armadilla on your blog - you are like the Steve Irwin of Texas, girl version!! You have the neatest critters come and visit!!

I hope this week is calming down for you and things are all good. I wish this were a restful weekend, alas, my girls have mandatory solo/ensemble singing to go to tomorrow at the High School to be judged and given scores. They either 1. move on to the state level or 2. go home Somehow I was "volunteered" to man the meet and greet in the morning and then the concession stand later on.

All I can say is if they are selling chocolate, it has my name all over it!!

This seems to be the common theme with this TAT! I'm guessing we are not fans, LOL! I actually LOVED the idea of the challenge - I just LOVE challenges period and give it my best attempt! I can't say this one will be in future though, lol. I so appreciate this Darlene - tried and chalked up to 'btdt'. Oh chalk. Another not a fan of!! I can't seem to master salt or chalk!

You know what we need! A great big old weekend where we can chat, and craft, and drink wine, eat chocolate, and enjoy these technques!!

Okay, first one that wins the lottery, I call Dibbs on getting us a place to craft and have a girls weekend together!!

Quick pop in before I head off to get on my jammies and as Jim says.....hit the rack! (No idea where he came up with that - but basically, the bed awaits!)

Kelly, good luck to your girls tomorrow at contest. Know they'll do wonderful.
Maggie, your salty card is beautiful!!! WOW!

Off to "hit the rack"!

Was DH in the Military? That is what some of the armed forces call their bed. I think mostly in the Navy because on the ships the beds were hanging from the sides of the ship like a "rack."

Thanks Lynn, and thanks for the rest of you for your comments already on my "salt" card. I think it looks better on my blog than it does IRL.

Good luck to your DD's on their singing. Yes, chocolate makes everything worth while.

Did I tell you guys that my DGD performed a solo in the Musical Presentation at her HS the other night. This was a night of broadway songs. She did one from Thoroughly Modern Millie. Her voice teacher is Ivan Rutherford. He played Jean Valjean on Broadway in Les Mis. He has a studio in Irvine, CA which is close to where they live. He was there at the HS and also sang a duet with my DGD's HS choir teacher. There is a link on FB, but here is a link. Not sure if it will work if you're not on FB.

Hi folks - I is back and absolutely exhausted - through lack of sleep - three short nights in a row and I was soooo glad I did not have to drive.
We travelled with DH's brother and wife - great company, comfortable card and a wonderful family 80th where we caught up with family we have not seen for 8-10 years. I will sleep well tonight!!

Thanks Jeanette. She's pretty special, but then again, each of my kids and grands are in their own special way.

Had a busy day yesterday. Went and did errands and then went by my sis's house to pick up the jacket that I gave her on Friday for Christmas. It was a little tight in the arms. I thought I'd keep it and get her something else, but it was snug on me too. So back it goes! I'm thinking I'll get her a LOFT GC to replace it.

Worked around the house cleaning and organizing my closet in my storage room and then my bedroom closet.

My great niece Lexi and her dad came over to pick up some boxes of clothing that I wanted to get rid of - some of them hardly worn and a couple things never worn. I found out that they were taking all kinds of donations so I also gave them the two boxes of household stuff I was going to give to Goodwill, so got all those give aways out of my garage!

I spent some time commenting on my DT challenges and plan to get around to the blogging groups today.

Just finished watching most of the Puppy Bowl........not off to watch the Super Bowl in a bit. (I like to see what the commercials are! LOL)

Either I'm losing my mind or just so busy.........can't seem to even remember where I've been or what I've been doing! LOL! We went to my brother's house for Christmas yesterday.......yeah, a little late! Had a good day but LONG. Rambo had to go with us because it was too cold to leave him here and didn't want to pay for him to stay at the vets until Monday. I swear, it's like taking a little kid on a trip! Had to have a couple of pee stops here and there! LOL! What's normally a 2 1/2 hour trip (one way) turned into a 3 hour trip one way! Whew!!! We didn't leave until about 10:00 yesterday morning and then got home about 7:00.

I decided I was going to be lazy today and then realized I need to get two more cards done pretty quick..........so........the laundry room is where I've been for a while.

Oh, Maggie, Jim was in the Marines..........don't know why he says "hit the rack", but that's what I've been doing a little earlier each night now it seems.

Good Eve, all!

Yeah, survived the Concession Stand! Was supposed to work from 8:30-12 but the 'relief shift' didn't show up so I was there til 5:30 pm But it was all fun and we made quite a haul for the choral dept - I even got $1 in a tip, ROFL!! (I left it behind and told the guy to go away - rofl)

Made a fun trip to Michaels today to stock up on the kids' class projects - we're making Valentine frames, a book bag to take home the traveling "Wilbur" and have to stencil with puffy paints, and some felt to make "Valentines keepers" w/ floss and buttons - too fun.

Maggie, your gds sounds like she is doing marvelous in singing! She sounds like she could be one of my dd's! Wow, to study with a teacher that was on broadway oh so wonderful!

Sounds like everyone is having a good weekend - I need to rest after this weekend, alas, it's already nearly Monday!

Not planning to watch the Superbowl so those that are, good luck to your teams!!

Hello- a quick drop in to say hello : )

We have been at the beach for 4 hours today- we went right after b-fast. I am under an umbrella today- reading a book about Cambodia- as we went out on a boat and snorkeled yesterday, and I have a couple of really RED areas...... I had a blast thought- very fun.

One of Katie's prior co-workers is on the island we are on, so it is nice she has someone else to talk to. I went to everyone's blogs today at the beack- on my IPhone- it was slow and used up all of the battery, so I thought I would hop on the computer while it recharges. (And stay in the air-conditioning for a bit too).

No Superbowl here- how were the commercials? I guess we will see them on You Tube..... Hubby sent an e-mail that the game was awful.....

Keeping everyone in prayers- fun to browse through and catch up here so I have a little less to do once I arrive home!

Shelly

Shelly, so glad that you are enjoying your trip. Watch out for that sunburn@

The game was pitiful for the Broncos! They did not look like a Super Bowl team at all.

Kelli, glad that you survived the concession stand. That would be really hard hard to be right there with all that food and not indulge. I was down another 2.2 pounds this morning so that's 4.4 altogether! Kids' class projects sound like fun.

Lynn, that was some trip. I don't know that I could do that all in one day. Yes, my 1st DH was a Marine and that's what they call their bed. Who knows why. Just to be different.

Ouch, Shelly! Do you have any aloe? Maybe that will help, if that's what you mean by red areas (Wasn't sure if you meant YOU or the beach, lol!) Sounds lovely where you are, sunburn aside!

Didn't watch the Superbowl - too many other things to do, still now!

OH J, that is definitley Maggie! I saw a photo the other day and thought of her, too! I'll have to see if I can find it

Have a great day, all - gotta scoot, lots to do!

Hugs!

Kelly, that pic is adorable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CUTE!!!!!

Shelly, glad things are going well and you're having fun. I saw a couple of pictures you posted on FB this morning!!

Maggie, I'm with you....the game was awful. Oh well.....they still have next year I guess. The commercials were pretty pitiful too! Nothing outstanding that I saw.

Until Shelly gets back and can take over some of this I thought I'd do a

DISCUSSION OF THE WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!

What card stock do you use for your card base?

I use Walmart GP but it's so flimsy - however, I hate to spend a ton of money on just the base of the card. I heard that Recollections (from Michaels) has one now that's heavier and is inexpensive. Has anyone tried that?

HI Lynn! I love the clips I'm seeing of the Nat'l Anthem - wow, what a voice from Renee Fleming! I saw a clip this am on the news - goosebumps!

Hmm, DOTW: I only use PTI or SU, in that order It's thick, lucious, gorgeous paper. I have tried Recollections in the past but I'm not a fan. It's too thin and flimsy and I haven't had good luck with using it. It doesn't cut straight in my cutter either - the thinner the cardstock, the loopier the paper is. Thick = precision, each time. I look at this way - even though it's just the base, w/out a good one, the rest of the card doesn't leave much to build on. Like putting a sloppy joe in sandwich bread rather than a bun To me, It's like an investment - My PTI cardstock comes out to about .15c a sheet as long as I buy in bulk to accompany the pricey s/h.

Off to pay a few bills - somehow they just keep rolling in, go figure!
