Nancy, sorry to hear about your brother's continuing medical issues. I hope they are resolved so that he can be out of the hospital for Christmas.

Maybe it was the wind that kept everyone awake. I was up from 1:00am until about 4:00. I should have got on here with all of you.

Sending up prayers for your brother Nancy.

I mailed the last of the Christmas cards yesterday (the bulk were mailed a day earlier).

Tony will bring food and join me on my meal break since his father will with some of his grandchildren.)

Between the dog escaping and me trying to catch her with the boys for 45 mins. with her almost getting hit by a truck while she zoomed around the neighborhood and a major sibling rivalry blowup between the boys tonight ("He hit me!" with major tears from the 9 year old..of course, the 9 year old provokes the 11 year old until he blows). The 11 year old has inherited his mother the lawyer's debating skills because he tried to plead his side of the story. Throw in a lot of talking back to his parents and it's been a stressful day in paradise! They all need to go to obedience school!!! DH and I disappeared upstairs for awhile while parents and son "discussed". "You love him more!" and tears from the 11 year old. BIL says "Welcome to our world! This is a daily occurrence!"

May everything be peaceful and joyful in your world this holiday season!

Actually the boys are already unusually close and will defend one another against others. They can share unusually well for siblings. One has saved his money to buy the other an expensive electronic game. Their babysitters are amazed at how well they play together...usually.

There is a lot going on in this household between a difficult work situation, school, and raging hormones of an 11- all most 12 year old who clams up and holds his emotions in.

Tornado warnings here in NC! Rainy and dark this morning. Bad house fire next street over, too...someone's Christmas just became sucky...sending them positive thoughts and hugs.

Looks like we'll start heading home at 4 a.m. (snore!) tomorrow to get through PA during daylight because of snow.

Today I need to finish cutting out hearts to leave for the boys' Valentines. I was hoping we'd go shopping today so I could go to the new HL here as I have a gift card burning a hole in my pocket and I want to go to the beach to see the ocean. We'll see how the day goes...

Hope everyone is have a fun vacation!

Heather (Quilling Quees), told me about it when I went to the Post Office to get my mail earlier today. I am NOT looking forward to it at all. I still have 2 broken ribs that are tender. Do you think there is any chance that the snow accumulations will bypass my house, driveway, and sidewalk? LOL

Oh definitely. I'm sure Gayla would be glad to take it for you -- and she can have mine, too. Though we only traveled as far as Rochester to celebrate Christmas, I am glad to have driven home on clear roads.

We had heavy rain three or four times today but it cleared up late this afternoon so DH and I could go to Wrightsville Beach for a few minutes before sunset. It was cold and very windy so we didn't stay long. There were sufers out since the waves were kicking up but we didn't see anyone riding in. We Just had to get in our ocean time since we are so close! The water is always wonderful to look at! Sigh....

Please give the snow to Gayla before we hit PA tomorrow so we have clear driving all the way home! My alarm is set for 2:45 a.m., the car is mostly packed, and we've said our goodbyes to the boys. I'll just have to shower, finish packing, put some food in the cooler and try to get out the door about 4 a.m. I doubt I'll get much sleep tonight since I haven't slept straight through the night while we've been here.

Anyone want to get together to stamp Saturday, Sunday, or Monday???

Thinking about you, Arlene, driving through this mess. Hopefully they'll have everything cleared off by the time you get up here.

Thanks, Heidi! We left this morning at 4:22 leaving nice weather in NC and hit snow mid PA. It was great having good daylight hours for driving most of the way. The last three hours or so of our 16 hour drive were YUCKY! DH drove a lot of the bad weather and I took over from Cortland to home...not fun since it was really only my second bad weather driving of the winter. I actually drove at least 7 hours of this drive. DH did most of the driving going down to my brother's and to his sister's so I was proud of myself for helping more coming home. I expect to sleep most of tomorrow! LOL!

What a bummer to find "winter" at home when we were in "spring" all week! Christmas Day it was at least 50 degrees in Wilmington.

We had a good time with the boys. They LOVED being with Uncle Steve!

I'm in Day Two of hibernation since returning from NC! This snow does NOT make me want to get dressed and go outside even though I really want to go to the grocery store. It's much cozier being on the couch with Zekey and my new electric throw! I have SAD now that it gets dark so early and the snow is here...sigh...

Which of my stamping friends will move south with me so I have someone to play with???

Happy New Year!! Hoping things settle down so now I can play. I got the spectrum noir markers because I was enabled by Bo. I don't have any copics because I couldn't justify the price so I am so clueless on the paper and blending what colors with what. So now I will be spending some time on youtube for color combos. Any idea what stores would have the paper that would work well with the markers. I want to play so bad. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas too.

cutcardstock.com Get Curious Metallic Cryogen White #89 cover or Cougar Super Smooth 80# or 100# cover. I use these with my Copics so they should work for those markers. Wish we lived closer so I could give you a few sheets to try! Shall I mail a few to you? PM your address if you would like me to. Get on the website's mailing list so you can get coupons. Have fun!

I'm so proud of you!! I have been playing with my markers too. I hope you will love them. I have copics and the new CTMH alcohol markers and I actually have been coloring a little too. Youtube is a great source for ideas.

I bought GinaK superheavy weight cardstock that I use with my markers to avoid the bleed-thru. It's $6.95 for only 25 sheets but I stamp out a page full of images and then color them all in. Heavy Base Weight Card Stock- White

But truthfully, go to Walmart and get the Georgia Pacific cardstock in the office section - 150 sheets for under $6 . You will have some bleed thru but it's a great practice cardstock and it works with alcohol markers since the paper is smooth and you can blend on it. It's definitely most economical paper to start with until you feel comfortable. Georgia-Pacific White Cardstock Paper - Walmart.com

The other thing I suggest is to start with a bigger stamp that will give you room to blend.... Fifth Avenue Floral has some great images. I have several big stamps and I practice my color combos.

Call me this weekend if you have time for a visitor and I'll come over if you want a partner in crime for experimenting.

That's very sweet of you Arlene. I can check out the website. I will add myself to the mailing list. Thanks for letting me know what the site is. Like I have said before I am very nervous about trying/buying from websites.

Cheryl, you can buy the white from yourself -- it's the SU! shimmery white, p 160. Maybe you even have some around.

I think Bo's given you some good advice on checking out the WM CS.
