Hi!

sitting here with a fresh cup-o-coffee trying to relax a bit before i have to get ready for tonights meeting

took the folks out to lunch for their anniversary then to michaels and on some errands.

michaels was busy rearranging the scrapbook isles and putting lots of stuff on clearance. i am hoping they will finally get new stuff! ours is a small store so seems like they never get the newest stuff.

was raining but now the sun is out

The stamping night went GREAT! They really had a lot of fun. They stayed stamping until 11:30. They want to do it once a week. At first I thought that was a great idea! Now, I'm thinking maybe once a month? Two are stampers..but the other two had fun chatting with everyone. The two that enjoy stamping are bridesmaids at the wedding I'm making the shower invites and thank you cards for. They offered to help assemble everything together, and they really want to! They enjoyed the stamping so much. I don't know why I was so worried. The two cards came out perfect. I don't have any to show you guys because they took them all home with them.
Laurie, I'm sending you a PM. BTW, that is the SAME stamping pad storage that my sister is looking at getting. I am jealous. It's really a good price!
Holly, how did the purses come out of the wash? Also, I was at Michael's today..they have shrunk down their wooden stamps and expanded their cling stamps. Looks like they are taking a clue from SU and getting rid of their wooden stamps. A lot of clearance and some good buys. Also some of the Martha Stewart punches were on clearance. They were not with the regular MS stuff, they were in the general clearance aisle of the store. They were about five bucks off and they were pretty cute!
Any word from poor Vicki? Are you there Vicki? How's the hand?

I am all for no drinks on the table, they make these ever so awesome holders that hang off the tables. The scrap book store has them,
When we gather at my house I set TV trays/tables up between 2 ppl.

This is odd I posted an update this morning and its not here. It was, I saw it! LOL

Anyhow I'll start over, here's a new one...

What a day!
Clint needed to go to town, and we had to deal with a detour.. a bit of sarcasm, I said, "Oh man, this means I have to drive passed the green house."
LOL.. for me that is worse than Michael's or even Archivers!
Well he said, "You should stop and see what a bit of dirt will cost."
I had bought this strawberry pyramid garden thing and it needed dirt.
So we stopped and the lady that owns it with her son are friends of mine. Jay says.. "Oh you have such a little truck I will just give you some."
HE FILLED MY TRUCK!
I filled (well Clint did all the work) LOL the strawberry bed, then I mentioned another spot that really needed some dirt, and oh, my little bed by the deck could use a bit. I still have dirt in my truck. all I did was play in the dirt all day! LOL
He helped me put dirt on our dogs grave, and I planted 2 Bleeding Hearts there and some Hostas that I got from my mother
It was a nice way to spend time together and I didn't really do much with my hand except move dirt and cover roots.
I tried to use the rake to level dirt, but I couldn't hold on to it long enough to do any good.

Well I did spend some time with Smurf (that cat), he seems just fine, crabby, but wouldn't you be if after 17 yrs in one house, with the same person, you got locked up.
He is totally fine when Clint talks to him.
I turned him loose, he's outside, but not locked in the cage anymore.

THe hand is almost normal color today, It may say this blotchy red I think. The swelling is WAAAAAAAAAAAAY better! I still can not get my rings on though.


Thank you ladies for all the prayers and thoughts!

I have to un-bury my new table so I can make Mother's Day cards. Hopefully that can happen Saturday. We moved in the rain this weekend, and it kinda sucked. The great part though was that I got to spend a few hours with my nephews. They were such good boys, so they each got a present. I had bought them movies...All Dogs go to Heaven and An American Tale. They have watched American Tale three times so far that I know of. YEAH!!! I hope you all had a great weekend!

Look at you typing Vicki! I'm happy to see it. How's the pain? How's the swelling.
I already made my Mother's day cards. If you want to take a look at them, they are in my gallery. I made two..one for my Mom and one for my MIL.
Laurie..moving in rain...SUCKS! Sorry, but it does. Poor you! I'm glad you wound up having a good time with your nephews. The day sounds like it actually ended in a fun way!
Holly, did you get the next pocketbook done? I hope you post a picture. Were you able to get to grill before the rain?
Today was my first day back to work after a weeks vacation. The day seemed to take FOREVER to be over. Especially because tomorrow is my day off for this week. I have some more cards to post from my vacation. I have them on my computer..just haven't got them posted onto splitcoaster yet except for my Mom's day cards.
I have to try and get my car into the garage tomorrow. My poor BIL back into it by mistake. I hate HATE dealing with car things...I really do! Give me a toilet to clean, a cat box to clean, scrubbing anything..I'm ok. I do HATE to even drive a car to a garage. I feel like they see me coming..a women who knows nothing about a car except the gas goes into that thingy there in the back..lololllol. Any of you guys have something that you just hate to do?

Karen, I agree that they see us women coming and the dollar signs just flash in their eyes. I always tell them I have to call my brother for his opinion before I let them do the work....ugh!

I have not made Mother's Day cards yet. I think I want to do the watercolor roses using 5th Ave Floral but don't have a blender pen. Thinking an eye dropper might work just as well??? I have to dig out my stamping room first!

I don't like going to the laundromat. I have to take my comforters because they just don't fit in the washer at home. UCK!!! The strangest people hang out there. I like to go really early (by 7am at the latest) on a Sunday morning. I usually have the place to myself, and I am in and out as fast as I can.

I have an icky project to do at work today for the boss. I was hoping for tomorrow off, but my one client is getting the materials in tomorrow morning. Ticks me off...oh well...hope for a short day. Then I am off Thursday and Friday to finish moving the odds & ends and clean the apartment really well from top to bottom.

I have a question here for you guys. I usually use red rubber cling stamps or wood block stamps. I have tried some clear stamps...some with ok results..some with awful results. I use SU ink so I know I have good ink. I've been looking at flourishes stamps...but they are clear stamps. They have some stamps for DD's graduation that I really love...but I hate to spend that much money and they don't work well. I am very concerned when I buy clear stamps they won't cover well. have any of you guys used their stamps before? I'd love some help. thanks!

Karen, I have a friend that uses Flourishes stamps and she loves them. However...I personally do not have any. Is that helpful or not?

Thanks Laurie! I'm still hunting around here for one I like on rubber. The ones at flourishes are 15 bucks. I think that's a lot for clear stamps. When I look at the whole package there really is only two stamps on the whole set that I really want...I think I'll see if I can find something like it someplace around here....

good morning!

just a quick Hello before i run out the door!

Karen, with the clear stamps sometimes you need to "season" them before they will do a good impression.
just ink them up and stamp off several times on scrap paper, repeat a few times then they should be good to go.
its something on them that makes them not work well at first, a coating of some sorts.

try and let me know how it works for you

OOOHHHH....My SU demo has told us that too Holly....good point! And rub the stamp on your blue jeans....kind of "roughs it up" so it takes the ink better...Yep! Good advice girl!

Hi Girls,

Just a quick hello, as I haven't been on for a while. Life here is incredibably hectic at the moment for some reason. My stupid depression has reared its ugly head again, and I have been a bit down, and not with it, but I am working hard on getting on with it all. My sister and I are going on a scrapbooking retreat this weekend (it is a long weekend here). It is both of our birthdays this weekend and this is our birthday present. We leave tomorrow and I have not got anything organised as yet, so need to get my act together. I have the photos I need, but nothing else. We will be really spoiled as we are going to a 4.5 star resort near the beach at Newcastle in New South Wales, which is about an hours flight away. Lots of relaxing, a bit of scrapping and a few sleep ins are all part of the plan. It is the longest my sister will be away from her 16 month old daughter and she is looking forward to being able to sleep past 5.30am!
Hope you all have a great weekend, and are getting ready for Mother's Day next weekend!!
