Well, admittedly, I'm such a nut about being on time...that I have finally figured out to PLAN on others being late...so I don't get all worked up about it. It makes my life a lot more easy going! haha

Awwww, you need someone to come over and take care of you. Make you feel better. A fall can knock you all out of wack. I fell down the stairs one time and I felt like I had the flu. Make grumpy you man slave for a month.
Seriously, I hope you feel better soon. HUGS!

Well, since you made stew for him, he should cart you around. Maybe to a doctor while he is at it?????

Argh, Miss Lynn is trying to outdo me in the fall department......

She does not want Mr Grumpy to be a manslave, she wants the Cabana boy!! Where is he now??

I did make my bookmarks today, 2 the same, with an owl on them. Lovely....

So will post soon, and also did one cover of an Art Journal for my little fairy princess.

Dawn, I signed up to get emails, but how do you log in without signing up for it first? and how do you upload your images to the site?

Morning
Positive thinking will let you do everything
better than negative thinking will.
- Zig Ziglar

The fact is, that to do anything
in the world worth doing,
we must not stand back shivering
and thinking of the cold and danger,
but jump in and scramble through
as well as we can.
- Robert Cushing

Hopeful thinking can get you
out of your fear zone
and into your appreciation zone.
- Martha Beck

Success is a state of mind.
If you want success,
start thinking of yourself as a success.
- Joyce Brothers

You don't have to sign up or log in to link up your stocking stuffer. Scroll down that post, past the pictures. Then, right underneath the icon for the free silhouette cutting file, there is a funny blue faced thing...and it says "links in collection:0 click to view/add link."

Click that...
then a new blue screen pops up...click add your link
then, fill out the new fields that pop up. you can link it to your SCS gallery pix...or your personal blog post.

Make sense?

It would only let me use one pic, which is fine, but the other side has the Christ child on it so that is why you see Happy Birthday. But on the top it says Merry Christmas. Oh well, You got the idea any way. ANd BONUS.........it worked. Thanks Dawn

Dawn thank you, I did it.

Marion, yours is not working..... if you go to the link to add link you will get the screen where the links are listed and you can delete yours and start again. Now I know you can do this. Donna did it (so anyone can!!) hahahaha

Love you all, all love the stuffers coming along.

I still have to make mine,
