Hey Girlies,
feeling a bit rundown today so nothing big going on, just laundry and junk, and a bit of sewing. also did up my reports for next weeks meeting got it out of the way. tomorrow is a busy day but includes lunch with the girls so will be a better day.

i tried nesties, but didnt like, but i think cause i had never used and no one here to show me, so sent back. i didnt like how they stuck to my plates!
i like sizzix much better, plus they cut fabric/felt so well too, so double duty there for the $, KWIM?

has anyone heard from Vikki and Kerriann?

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have a fabulous day!

Weekend plans anyone?

Saturday I am attending a stamping charity event. We are raising money for a child with GLUT1. I don't recall all the specifics. I would have to search it online again. Then after that, Tom and I are going for dinner, and then we are off to the Admirals (hockey) play off game.

Sunday, more packing and moving of "stuff" and hopefully some time to get inky.

Hi guys,

We have been on holidays over here. We camped with my family over Easter and then went to a wedding. We caught up with lots of friends and rellies along the way, so had a wonderful time.

It is Saturday here and we have just had Mr 15's first soccer game of the season. they played well, but unfortunatley lost by 1 goal which was scored just towards the end.

Our sad news is that we had our 18 year old cat put down this morning. the boys and I went as DH is at work. We all cried - Mr 18 especially.

Went to craft yesterday and made some adorable little milk cartons in a case. very cute, but not quite finished - I will post a picture when I have done the finishing touches. I suppose the weather is warming up over there. The weather here is just beautiful - still realatively hot during the day, but cool enough to snuggle under the blankets at night - almost perfect!

Hi Kerriann!

Yes, it's starting to warm up. All of the snow has been gone for a while now. Heading towards summer, and I am thankful! My spring flowers are all up and are SO pretty! It did make me realize I have some planting to do this fall though. Good to see you stop in!

HI everyone
Kerriann, so sorry to hear about your cat, its so hard to lose a "furbaby" ((((( hugs))))

having a quiet day here today. DH is helping a friend work on his truck and DS is here for the weekend but is at the beach. water will still be chilly but weather is otherwise perfect.

i got out my SLice and played a little at the kitchen table( my room is over run by the airbed LOL) its a nice machine but i find i reach for the Sizix more and esp since i am back into sewing and the Sizzix dies cut fabric better! but i do dust him off and run him now and then

not much excitement here other wise!

any news from Vikki? hope she is ok.......................

Happy Sunday everyone! It's going to be a really nice day here! Sun is out, wind has calmed down, and I do not have to work!

What are you all giving your Mom's for Mother's Day???? I had a collage pictured done at Walgreens of my nephews (her Grandsons) that I am framing. I was also thinking of MAYBE getting her a gift certificate for a massage. She has never gone for one, and I think it would do her some good.

Quick update on Vikki....she got bit by a cat...I am assuming not one of her cats. Her hand is extremely swollen and she may need surgery tomorrow. I won't know more until I talk to her. I will post as soon as I find out something new. Please keep her in your thoughts.

No wonder I couldn't get hold of her by email either (vicki - not my mum). That is awful! Clint, doesn't like cats, does he - this will be another nail in their coffin.

Vikki update. Her hand is SO swollen. There is infection, and the cat is in quarantine until she can get the vet records. I haven't heard anything this morning. It was her step-dad's cat, and the neighbor that had been caring for it is moving at the end of the month, so Vikki took the cat in....Now this. UGH! I agree, I think Clint isn't fond of cats. Unfortunately it's her right hand, and she is right handed. She can really only use her thumb and index finger. OUCH! So much for stamping and work....

hello everyone! I had a very busy and fun weekend!
Kerriann...so nice to hear your camping trip was nice and that the weather is like it is. That's how I LOVE it. I like it warm during the day but I love to snuggle under the covers and have a cool breeze at night. Sounds perfect. I am sorry about your cat. I had to do the same with my 16yr old just a few months ago. I can't believe how much I cried like a baby. But it's best for the kitty...I'm sure it was a hard decision. I waited a bit too long and I really think she was in pain by the time I made the decision. I feel bad about that.
Holly, those colors sound so beautiful for your next purse! I am very jealous of you to be able to be that creative! Make sure you post a picture!
Ohhhh...ouch ouch for Vicki. I hope she's alright. Make sure you keep us updated. Cat bits can be very difficult to get over...and they can be very painful! I wonder also if it was one of her own kitties...sending BIG HUGS to vicki!
Laurie, How did the stamping event go? I bet you had fun. That's my kind of Saturday! How was the moving on Sunday? Hopefully, soon you will be done with that mess.
Mothers day - I will have breakfast here probably with everyone. My mom has Alzheimer, so it's hard to do much. She still is somewhat able to remember us. But she has problems with balance and walking. I'm taking care of her on Tuesday or Weds to give my dad a break. I will take her to lunch and she loves going to the movies. She doesn't follow the movie well AT all..but she has always loved going to the movies so she still likes it. I'll take her to an early show so hopefully she won't bother too many other people at the movies ...she tends to talk loudly. She'll eat some popcorn and then fall asleep...lol! I'm a bit worried about taking her...it's hard to see her this way, and I am very worried about her falling. Hopefully my daughter will be free so she can come with me. Mom LOVES my kids!
Here's a funny story for you all about my Mom...she is a real character! One time she was eating her popcorn and said "There's something wrong with this piece, it's a bit chewy...." She took the piece out of her mouth and then realized she was eating her hearing aid...LOL LOL! She promptly put it back in her ear and got back to her popcorn...gotta LOVE her!
I'm on vacation this week so at the end of the week I'm planning on getting together with my sister to STAMP! that will be fun. I have to go into work a couple of days this week even if I am on vacation so...sigh...that won't be so nice but on well. I can't wait to hear how Vicki is doing....

The stamping event was really nice. It felt good to get stamping again! I still haven't had a chance to do much of that. Probably won't until May. I can wait, but patience has never been my strong point!

We got the kitchen packed up and moved...now to just unpack it all. Ugh!

Tom got called back to work. He starts tomorrow. WOW! That is awesome, but awful short notice. They just now called him! Kind of a long story, but Tom is my Ex-DH, but we are back together...and it's all good!

Real fast.. then I will go back and read.
Well Laurie.... thank you so much, that really saved me tons in typing THANK YOU!

I now only have us of my thumb on my right hand and even that hurts.
Wishing now I hadn't given my dd the Speak Easy for school! LOL

That cat, his name is Smurf, has not has any vaccinations since he was fixed 17 yrs ago. So I may very well be in trouble.
No Clint is not fond of cats, Louie adopted us shortly after his Rottweiler passed away. He possessed so many BIG dog qualities and really went out of his way to get to Clint.
Little things Louie does you would sewar it was Baby Dog reincarnated, Then my ds got a 6 week kitten only to not be allowed to keep it where he lived. Clint said it was okay for me to care for it until I found it a home. Well our Beagle became so close to it, Clint won;t let me get rid of it! Too funny!
Now this....
I am in pain, and emotionally distroyed. Clint wants Smurf dead now, but we have to wait 14 days to make sure its okay. i have to keep it away from all other animals and keep it fed and healthy.
It rips my heart out to lock anything up like that. I put him in the dog kennel, he has a pet carrier and his blankets, food and litter box.But no human contact at all.
He just lost John after 17 years, moved him here with all me critters only have to lock him up.
I do go back to the doc today ,they took enoguh blod from me to start another body up! LOL
She said my white count is okay, so I am home. On antibiotics and Percaset. I cant so any stamping, I have to even eat with the wrong hand. Any potty time... well lets just say THIS STINKS! LOL

On a brighter note... I have designed our wedding cards, but I can't do anything about it now.
Picture this... Bazzil Bling card stock
white 5 1/4 x 4 scallop
with a blue 5 x 3 3/4 layer with the info
Blue and white gingham ribbon and a blue flower with a rhinestone brad in the upper left corner
I am hoping to have the reception at his grand parents farm and I was gong for a country look
we first talked of a wedding at the court house and the party and grama and grampa's
now he wants to think about getting married at the farm too.

I thnk the pills are kicking in... I have spent 45 mintutes typing this and fixing typos!

I did read that someone ate a hearing aid! But for the life of me I can not remember much else. I'll go back!
I sure miss you girsl. Any new gallery updates? Anyone start a blog while I was gone!

now to figure out the wording.

oh Vikki, ((((HUGS))))) i am so sorry.

this is such an emotional thing to go through. i just Pray the vet says Smurf is safe and you have nothing serious to worry over as far as lack of vaccines. the poor guy is prob wondering what in the world is going on too! such a scary time for all of you!



your cards by the way sound beautiful and so does a farm ceremony! esp on the family farm, all that history to it! ahh....yes beautiful for certain!


no bloggin here, i am very non techy!

i did however finish the purse, so will post pics here in a few.

I'm so sorry you are in this AWFUL pain,and..um...a bit jealous of the percocet After I delivered my first baby, they gave me "percocet with a cranberry juice chaser". I got preggies with my second just for the pills! LOL..j/k! I can't imagine how difficult things are! I wish I was in your area--I'd make you a nice meal and clean up your house for you. Those are the things that drive you mad you can't do. Rest..rest...and we will just keep typing away here to give you some stuff to read till you can type again.
Ok..Holly...those bags are TO DIE FOR!!!!! I am so jealous and in awe...I could NEVER do something that creative! You should make a business of it.
Laurie..how are you and life?
I made Mother's day cards today, I'll post them later.
Ladies, I need some fast advice. I have someone who is a sweetie who wants to learn how to make cards. Dont ask me how I got mixed up in this..but she is suppose to come over tomorrow night with her SIL to make cards. I am in a total sweat!!!!!! I don't know these folks too well. I don't know how to "show" someone how to make cards. My sister is a SU demo and I really rather she do it, but she can't make it tomorrow. Plus, tomorrow I'm going to take care of my Mom and give my dad a break. That will be a logn day never mind trying to get some idea of a card together or some snacks, etc. I really hate to cancel...I don't like cancelling on anyone ..but I could probably pull off doing it...just a simple card...but I dont really feel like embracing this whole thing...god...god...ok..someone here make up my mind for me!

I never went to Prom, but I hear it was a good time. If you think of it, please post pics. How fun! You can't beat Mom and DD times like that! How did shoe shopping go? I am so picky!!!
I didn't go either

I love that! I'm with you!!

i ordered that sizzix die from SU this morning, so cant wait for it to come in, as i think i will like to make more of the bags. I have the Big SHot now, but since I've had the Sizzix since 1998 I am not buying any new dies for a while! They all work together nicely, I even use my Cuttle Bug Folders and Nesties with it

Well I am a bit crabby today, so I will leave for a bit and go take a nap! LOL
This left handed business is strictly for Lefties! LOL

Karen...do you remember when SU gave out the Inspiration Sheets a couple years back? Can you pull that out if you have any and make some simple cards from them...or go here to the gallery for a stamp set you want to use and get a few ideas. Or...um...tell me what set (if you use SU)...I might have an idea...

Or...show them your favorite technique.

Ladies, I need some fast advice. I have someone who is a sweetie who wants to learn how to make cards. Dont ask me how I got mixed up in this..but she is suppose to come over tomorrow night with her SIL to make cards. I am in a total sweat!!!!!! Grab a couple of simple cards you and your sis have done, cut the stuff to make it again, but do not assemble. Do it twice and there ya go! LOL We're there with you in spirit, you'll do just fine! I don't know these folks too well. I don't know how to "show" someone how to make cards. My sister is a SU demo and I really rather she do it, but she can't make it tomorrow. Plus, tomorrow I'm going to take care of my Mom and give my dad a break. That will be a logn day never mind trying to get some idea of a card together or some snacks, Crackers, meat and cheese is best, no messy hands! Stay away from chips that make your fingers icky! Like cheese puffs! LOL my fave!!etc. I really hate to cancel...I don't like cancelling on anyone ..but I could probably pull off doing it...just a simple card...but I dont really feel like embracing this whole thing...god...god...ok..someone here make up my mind for me!

I am just busting up! That's so funny!
I think the percs make me crabby! I feel lazy and thats not me, so I wanna do something then I feel crabby.

that might work! I could show them faux silk technique. That is mega easy. I don't want to use my cuttlebug or anything like that just because it's not something they have at home. Thank you Laurie. I think I just have to go "simple".
