ooh, Bearzi, how fun! Wish my DH would even THINK about a cruise!

And hope your birthday was wonderful, Kookzi! Somehow I was thinking "monday", not "sunday". oops!

Oh, that is super, Sue! Of course, I won't get to play....never do. I'm just too busy and I think I am going out of town Friday a.m. and not returning until Monday so I really have to get ahead on some cards before I leave. I know it will be a super teapotter challenge. So glad Christopher is doing so well. I hope I can get some more cards to you.

I'm not going to south Georgia this weekend. My youngest son has pneumonia and I've been worried about him. I found it out yesterday. He was sick all weekend. I guess it is best I didn't know or I would have worried myself sick. He is improving after a visit to the doctor on Monday and is much better today. Guess I'll be off to GA next weekend.

Wow! It is supposed to be 72 degrees here in the deep south today. And, bright sunshine is bountiful...love it!!!!

Hope all is well with all you Punchkateers.

Thanks, MM.....I can't stand for my DS to be sick. It is the first time anyone in our immediate family has had pneumonia.

Wow! What weather! I just heard that it was 83 degrees here today....a lot warmer than predicted. Boo Hoo..I didn't even go outside once today. I really missed a fantastic February day.

Hey, can you believe I have visited the thread twice in one month? I seriously plan to do better (famous last words). Benz, I hope your Son is getting better and sorry you had to cancel your trip. Sue, I am so glad Chris is getting so much exposure for his project! I plan to do some cards again for him today - I love the Teapot Challenge with cupcakes and such. Of course, now I want a cupcake. I think that the hysterectomy made me start craving sweets more -do you think that is possible?

I am so jealous of Carol's cruise - I so wish my DH would do surprises like that!

Hope you all have a great weekend - I may even pop back in......

Sue, that is awesome news about Chris! I know he is excited, and I am glad for this step. Glad you got the cards! I am sure you are getting tons of cards as I hear a lot of people talking about it.

My DH is making deer jerky on my favorite counter top in our kitchen so I am stuck crafting at the kitchen table (not my favorite place). He makes the best deer jerky though, so I can't complain too much. I guess we have to comprise some times - I know he compromises all the time with all my stuff everywhere. We made a bet the other day and I reminded him that paying up is really kind of silly since we share our money. He said he would have to sell one of his guns to pay me back then, and I told him that the guns were 1/2 mine too just like my crafting stuff was 1/2 his. He looked like I had told him that I was part lizard. He said he wanted no part of that stuff! LOL! Men are so silly....

Hello Punchiez!!! I thought I'd pop in to see if anyone had been by the chat and how delightful to "see" some of you. I am so far behind I think I'm first. We are still in AZ and LOVING the fact that we didn't get a foot of snow here over the weekend like they did back home. (insert big grin here). We have been so busy that I still haven't managed to dig out my crafting supplies. Gosh darn it, I haven't even been to Hobby Lobby in weeks. My sister came to spend 5 days with us at the end of January and I flew back to Alberta with her to help celebrate my Dad's 80th birthday. Our youngest DD came back to AZ with me on Feb 6 and just flew home on Thursday (just before they got a foot of snow)!! We kept busy while she was here and then spent 4 days in Las Vegas with her so she could attend a HUGE photography trade show at the MGM Grand. We did Vegas "convention style" not "casino style" and actually came out ahead $2.50 on the slot machines. When you can remember your wins/losses that accurately, you know you didn't spend much time at the machines! Our DD did get some new backdrops and fancy lights and is quite excited about that.

I am still hiking regularly although I did miss a whole week because of the Vegas trip. I am signed up for a 4 mile hike on Monday, and 7.5 mile hike on Tuesday and another 4 mile hike on Thursday. I am waiting to see how my knees feel on Tuesday night before I sign up for a 3-4 mile hike on Wednesday!!! Love being out in the Arizona landscape!! (The snakes haven't started to appear yet but once things warm up and the snakes show up I won't be out there as much!) When I'm not out hiking I do a lot of walking in our little community and so far I'm down 35 lbs. Still hoping to lose at least another 35 lbs before our oldest daughter's wedding in August. I feel so much better - and some clothes that were stuffed away in the back of my closet actually fit again!!

Hope everyone is doing well...
Sue - I have followed Chris' progress through the Caring Bridge site. So happy to hear he is doing so well!
Brenda - hope your son is on the mend. As parents we never stop worrying about our kids do we...
Nancy - hope you are healing well after your surgery. My what a year for some of our Punchiez! Prayers for your MIL too...
Pamzi and Audzi - a "twinzi" weekend - what fun!! Just a little bit jealous!!
Carol - A CRUISE!! I am so envious but DH has booked a Caribbean cruise for next January so I only have to be jealous for a while! The weather here in AZ is so fabulous that I can take solace in that. No snow!!!!
Kookzi - so sorry I forgot your birthday. Take comfort in the fact that I'm pretty much batting 100% when it comes to remembering birthdays - family included! Even my Mom is still waiting for her card for her January birthday.... Oops...
Bugzi - hope your are feeling great and that you are getting back into your groove. I can relate to not "feeling it" when it comes to making cards right now.
MamaRitzi - I haven't even checked to see if there has been a new Verve release lately. How bad is that!
Quiltzi, Emzi, Blondzi, Marzi - Hugs to all of you! Hope all of you are giving your punchez a good workout to make up for how neglected mine are feeling.

Take care all. So good to pop by here and actually see that some of you are still stopping by this thread. Maybe one day soon I'll have time to pop into the gallery to see what my Punchie Palz have been creating.

In the meantime, RYPH!! I'm going to grab some lunch and head out for a walk. Gotta hit my 10,000 steps today and it won't happen if I'm sitting at the computer! Hugz!!!

I'm just realizing that it has been 2 months...2 whole whopping months...since I posted anything! I have some on my camera, but I have been spending so much time with cleaning and reorganizing, and then now I'm working on some genealogy with my dad, that I haven't made but just a few cards in all that time.

However, at stamp club this month I bought 3 huge punches. Count em...three! I got the SU blossom petals, boho blossoms, and 2 step bird. Then cuz it's SAB I got a bird stamp to go with that punch.

Woo hoo!

Woo hoo is right!! New punchez is always worth a big WOO HOO!!! I looked at the newest mini and thought about ordering so I could get some SAB goodies at the same time but I haven't even had time for that!!

Hope you will be able to get some stamping done sometimg this year. I really miss it. Hugs and keep on a losin' them pounds. I've lost 16 and need at least 5 more; but, really want to lose 15 more.

I have been wondering about you Quiltzi. I haven't seen your pnz uploads in a long time. I thought maybe you weren't putting pnz on your cards; but, it sounds like that's not the case. We'll be waiting for your next wave of cards to come through our part of town. Sounds like you have been very busy. Get zee punchez our QUICK! Miss ya!

I've been so remiss in stopping by here to see what's up. Hope everyone is keeping well. We've been enjoying ourselves in Arizona - I am going on hikes 2-3 days a week and walking several miles a day in our park the rest of the week.

Last Thursday we did an eight mile hike and this morning it was over six miles. So far so good - down over 25 lbs since September now so I'm feeling great about that. DD's wedding is in late August so I hope to be closer to my goal by then. Haven't touched my crafting supplies since we got back to AZ on Jan 3rd. Haven't even been to Hobby Lobby. The days are just flying by. My sister is coming to visit us on Thursday and I'll have to make sure I get her over to HL to stock up on supplies.

Take care all my punchiez - I think of all of you often - apparently just not on your birthdays. Hugz to all!

Sooo jealous you got to hook up with Wanda and Teresa! From what I have read on their blogs (your satellite equipment is failing in that part of the state, or are they safe as they are in the same state LOL!). Was a great picture of the four of you! Look forward to seeing your new found skills on your cards

Popping in to catch up- where does the time go? Heck you hit 50 and look what happens LOL! You keep losing the weight Izzy and you will be the "at home winner" a la Biggest Loser! You go girl!! Bets you are feeling tons better now too.

My fit and firm at 50 has taken a side road due to this NASTY flu/cold I got. Over two weeks and counting now! They say it is a three weeker so at least I only have a week to go. Thankfully I'm at the tail end, just a runny nose and some coughing and my energy is finally back. I get sick so rarely it sucks to be sick!! Last time I can remember was over ten years ago. Good to get empathy for those who are sick more often I guess.

Busy working for hubby on and off. New semester in HS for DD and she is settling in well. The huge trauma from Sept - Nov is finally subsided and she is much better. Still praying for a close friend, but until then, she has found a good lunch group and did very well inher clases (straight As). She is also doing wonderfully in piano. A double exam year for her. Took grade 3 exam in January and will do grade 4 in June. Place Gold in a music festival this weekend too. Such a talented girl and I love her to bits.

So glad to hear Chris and Benzi's son are doing better, as well as your post-op Nancy. It's been quite the year for many of us!!

Congrats again to Bearzi on getting Dirty!! Will you have an autograph signing session soon

Wishing everyone a wonderful week. Will try to pop in more often....not getting all the posts in my inbox so thought things were rather quiet here until I got one the other day and popped in. Words with Friends on FB is a time sucker LOL!

Hugz to all

I don't do FB but I do play WWF with my kids. And Scramble. But they often beat me. But I have to agree, it does suck the time - when I am not off wandering in the desert somewhere!!

Izzy, my goodness...you're visiting us and with great news. Twenty-five lbs. of weight gone. That is awesome!!!

Sue, I am so glad Chris is doing so well. That is really an ordeal you and your family have been through. BTW, I see you have a birthday this month...along with several other punchiez.

Glad Marisa is mending, however slowly. Sure hope I don't get something like that.

I think I am starting my allergy problems. Hubby has been sick with allergies for about 1 1/2 wks. Just in time for us to head to GA this weekend. I hope we won't be miserable. Hubby and I have been busy making our little grandson a pirate's treasure chest. He is into pirates big time so he will love this chest.

Quiltzi, glad you got all those new punches. They're so fun. I loved the punches I bought to make the lily on my card yesterday. It was easy and fun.

I'm signing off to check the weather. Toodles.

Bad weather is headed our way today so my neighbor (yes, the one I sell all my punches to and borrow back) and I are already planning to head for a basement. Schools are letting out early so it is serious. Just the beginning for the season.

I want to thank all of your for your thoughts, prayers and comments left on Christophers caring bridge website. He is getting stronger and stronger each day. I have been in meeting all week with the school and sunnyview where he is getting therapy~ I have some very exciting news....drum roll please...Mr Christopher will be heading back to school on Monday for half days to start and see how it goes. He will not ride the bus...my idea...I will drive him to and from. He will be there 7:30am-11:30am and I have volunteered to help in anyway I can with his transition back into school. I feel soo blessed to be able to say he is going back to school, my family and I have been through every parents worse nightmare and to see him bounce back the way he did is a miracle. It has been 10 weeks today from his surgery and we are soo happy to have Christopher alive and here to hug each morning. Thank the lord!! I dont know what I would have done if I lost my son and I am soo thankful for him to still be here with us. That is the best birthday gift I could get...when your over 50 we seem to be low key about them.
Again, the continued support, prayers and comments have really helped get us through this very difficult time in our lives~Thanks to all of you that were there for our family~hugzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Sue, that is outstanding news and I bet Christopher is excited, too. Yes, you and your family, along with Chris, have certainly been through a lot. I know it is a blessing to look at his sweet smile everyday.

Oh Sue how wonderful. Great news I am jumping for joy here in GA for you and your family. What a blessing!!!

Right now I am trying to catch up. DH and I went right to work after getting off the cruise ship and I don't think I will do that again. I should have come home, done my laundry and rested. Especially after having to deal with the accountant for work this week....yikes. I swear I don't have a degree, but some of the things they come up with have me scratching my head and I have to point them in the right direction!!!!

So I am off to fold more laundry. Will catch up soon!!!!

Somehow, I don't get all the messages here. I just wanted to make sure all our punchies in the tornado and severe storm areas are safe. I'm trying to figure out where some of you live, but zee fruitcake isn't smart enough to find it on a map for each particular city. I pray you are all okay.

Back to the old grind Bearzi - you knew it had to happen.

Woo Hoo, Sue, it's looking so great for Chris. What a blessing to have him come along so far so fast. Must have been all that luvin' sent your way.

Diz - iz ya still in zee dezzert?

Benzi - 1st: are zee punchez safe; 2nd: is your family okay and 3rd: is your neighbor's house okay with all zee punchez? Just tryin' to make sure.

Quiltz - new punchez?

Ritz - 50???

We missed the tornadoes yesterday-we just had lots of rain and some good wind blasts come through. I know some bad storms went through Alabama- are you girls Benzi and Nutzi OK. Been thinking about you.

Benzi is o.k. The punches are all safe. Everyone can rest easy.
When we left home on Friday, the weather looked terrible so about 4 hours into our 9 hr.trip our oldest son called to say say there had been a tornado near Huntsville when he lives. They were all o.k. On Saturday, while at our youngest son's house in south Georgia, a tornado was spotted 6 miles away. It bypassed us but there was 3 1/2 inches of rain on Saturday.

I'm sure hoping everyone was o.k. in their areas. Bearzi and Nancy seem to be o.k. and that is awesome news! Tis the season for this terrible weather and it seems to be starting early this year. Such tragedies always come out of these tornadoes.

I'll be heading home tomorrow. Take care all.

Hugz,
Benz

Glad to hear everyone is okay after the weather issues

GREAT news about Chris!! I"m sure he will be happy to be back at school to see some of his friends too

Teachers are on strike here for three days this week and maybe more...such a mess! Kids have spring break for two weeks starting next week so with the strike it will turn into three weeks basically. Not fun for anyone! Our education system is a real mess and I hope some things can get settled sooner than later.

Gotta run, got a houseful of kids.
