Quit teasing us Vikki Jo. I'm trying real hard to not buy more goodies right now. Especially since I need to put a new engine in my van.

Hey girls!
I'm going to work on updating cards little by little this week. This is our last full week with Adrian and she still has a long to-do list. LOL

Wow, Jan. That's not good! I've not heard of people having issues. Do you have central air or a dehumidifier?

No aircon I'm afraid, our villa is one storey with a flat roof, my husband had my little room built up there for me, it's great but when the temp soars it gets pretty hot. Must admit it's usually the silicone that dries up not the sticky tape.

Okay, I'm impressed. We get all excited if it gets up to 70 F. Which hasn't happened very often this month. I would gladly share some of our raing...

Merry Christmas Ladies!

I received a PM from crazysexycool Elizabeth, she wants ot join our group but is unable to post her or uploiad cards

I passed her note off to Lydia. I also gave her the info to contact Lydia for help.. hope it all gets figured out.


I start PT on the 13th
I can almost touch my face! Mosquitoes are awful, they keeping biting where I can't reach!

my fil took me to the green house yesterday they are having a sale.. anuals that fit in a box $1
well I had $2
I came home with 30 pots....umm someone wanna come help me plant them now! LOL

Clint and his boy are helping me, they keep telling me I am too fussy! LOL MEN!

some of the pots are the 6 packs. I got 14 tomato plants with tomatoes on them already and 3 peppers and onions (its a 4" pot and I have to seperate them a bit) I am thinking Salsa!


Its been over 100 degrees F here during the day, but storming bad at night. Just 20 miles north of me is flooded so badly they have evacuated the towns. Duluth which is an hour north got it real bad, the zoo was destroyed its aweful.

Some just want some rain to end their droughts and others wanted some dry days!

I am still staying in my bedroom .. there is no air in my craft room and I can not open the windows then I forget to have the guys close them at night and with the rain things get wet so i stay out till I can do the windows myself.
Internet in my room is so slow, so no galleries for me SORRY!

Vikki Jo, so glad that you are able to post in the forum. Love your Christmas snowman. It sounds like you may be doing a bit better? You really got a fantastic deal on the plants! Sometimes it pays to be late! I would have come to help you plant them, but seeing as they are already planted, I'll save the airfare ! I'll be flying to Texas instead....nothing like jumping out of the frying pan (85 degrees) and into the fire (104 degrees)!

Hi Vikki Jo! What a surprise to see you here. I was coming to make a post. Sending you prayers and hugs!!

I came here to share -- I am so excited -- I created my first Christmas Card in 2012 yesterday! Indigo Greetings by Serenity_Stamper - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers (I know that I signed up for, gulp, 12 a month -- but I have been SO super busy this year with volunteer work. I am grateful I got a chance to play, if only for one card).

Blessings,

Lela

Hey Girls!

First off... VikkiJo! So happy to see you here sweetie. Great score on the plants. Wish I could have come help you out. There was a greenhouse in Peoria that used to have an end of planting season auction every mid-July. They used my favorite auctioneer and I always came home with a pick-up load of plants for as little as $50. So wish someone would do that here! Where I can actually plant cool stuff.

Adrian headed back to TN this morning so I have the laptop set up and am here to get caught up. I hope to have a June winner posted by tomorrow morning. Thank you soooo much for your patience while I played grandma.

Hi, Vikki Jo! So good to hear from you. That is so sad about the zoo. DH's grandfather was from across the river in Superior, Wisconsin.

We only had a few days of real hot weather here, but the past few days it's been down into the high 70's. Yesterday was a beautiful day for our Independence celebration. I don't think it got to 80. Of course, the city park we hold our event is full of shade trees. We had about 1400 or more people at our event. That's a lot of people to feed, but feed them we did. It was a great afternoon of good music, good food and lots of good company.

I am behind on my cards. I still have June's to make. I'm not sure when I'm going to have time to work on any. I think next weekend is the only free weekend I have. I really should have joined a Relay For Life team this year but wasn't sure if I would be up to all that walking. I may show up and walk a couple laps with my sister and her new DIL.

I've been behind on reading the posts but mostly up to date with my cards. So sorry to hear our fearless leader has been unwell. I hope you're feeling better soon, Vikki Jo

Please add my name to the list. I don't send out too many Christmas cards, but I have made a lot of new friends this year so I'm thinking 3-4 a month would be a good number.

I have been a scrapbooker for quite a few years, but I'm fairly new to card making. I really enjoy coming here to SCS and I'm hoping to make some new friends here. I've already signed up to attend my first SCS shoebox swap in October, and I'm all excited about that.

Anyway, thanks for letting me play along. I am looking forward to this challenge.

Anne

September already? I'm still trying to find time to do my June and July cards. Looks like I'll be doing August along with them.

If you'll notice, Sue isn't the only one with Sept. cards LOL

Hey gang!
Just stopping in first and foremost to apologize. July has been the absolute busiest month I have had in a very long time. Thank goodness I don't see it repeating in August. I'm so ready to just play! On my own time!

That said, Bob and I are running away from home for the last 2 days of the month. I will be back on Wednesday. We'll close out July and get August started on the right foot.

HugS!

Kelly, how was your get-away?
Not near long enough! LOL. but that's because I am so at home in Eureka Springs. I know so much about the community and there is a Victorian Pencil House I'd love to own. The only hotel I'll stay in is the Best Western Inn of the Ozarks. I've never been to a hotel where the employees truly are like family. Randy has owned this hotel for I don't know how many years. Dave, the restaurant manager, started out eons ago as a young man providing shuttle service from the bus depot to the hotel. I know all of the employees by name and get hugs from most when I walk in the lobby. Randy has had me look at newly remodeled rooms in the past to get my opinion on the finished product and has offered me a job more than once.


I've been staying at this hotel every October for 18 years.


Bob and I spent Monday around the hotel playing pool/ skeet ball and enjoying the pool/ hot tub. The hot tub wasn't working properly and 1/2 the games didn't work. The hotel got right on to fixing them Tuesday morning (maintenance had just left for the day). We went out for a nice dinner at my favorite restaurant, The Rowdy Beaver.


Tuesday after we'd checked out, we spent the entire day taking the trolly to the Crescent Hotel and the Christ of the Ozarks for pictures for a Flat Jaydin project. Then walked all over downtown snooping in shops and I had the opportunity to visit with shop owners I only get to see once a year.


We made a quick stop at my sisters on the way home and got home about 10:30 Tuesday night. Man was it a long two days but it was nice to share 'my town' with him.

So glad you had a wonderful little break away from it all Kelly! You deserve it after such a busy month and all that you do!

Sound like you had a lot of fun. I'm ready for a little get-away but don't see one in the near future. I have to wait until January before I can take any vacation time with pay. Isn't it funny I have to wait so long after getting my hours changed to more? I've been at the library for 6 years but with my changes I'm considered a new hire so have to wait. I'm not going to complain.

ummm who has signed up since I abandoned you ladies?


I am so brain dead!


No meds..... gotta learn to tolerate the pain. The Deltoid is something that I need to learn to live with it can not be fixed.

Still no card making for me, I drove today.. OMG that was horrible! Clint had to do my seatbelt, and shift
getting in the truck was the most horrible thing of all

I am checking out galleries today. started at 9 am, need to go away a lot.
I am having an MRI of my neck soon, to check for nerve damage I guess
