Good Morning Paper-Loving Inky Friends!







Oh Kelly, I hope all went with with the kitty and DD has forgiven you! Happy belated Anniversary! And congrats to DD on graduating....hmmmm... be careful. It might sound like the college was glad to see her go... since they paid her upon leaving. J/K! I know she did an excellent job and you are very proud of her, as you should be! Hey... a thought! I can go with you to help interpret for your brother. I don't speak Italian either.

Susan, I can imagine the fun of the party... just think of all the faces.

Shelly, YAY for a visit from your brother!

Lynn, I'm getting anxious to hear all about the museum gig. Can't wait for you to get back.

My weekend was exhausting but wonderful! We were given pedometers, for a step challenge. From 2:30 pm until 9:30 pm on Thursday, I'd walked 3 miles. That's just in setting up for the conference. Then from Friday morning through Saturday evening, I'd walked almost 9 miles. YIKES! I'm usually pretty sedentary so that is almost unbelievable.



Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome home Jeanette. Are you sticking around for awhile? Sounds like you got way more excersize in then me. lol...I pretty much wasted my Sunday with a migraine and scratchy throat. Boy those kids better not have given me Strep (which they had). Today still scratchy but not too bad. At least not bad enough to keep me from talking! heehee

Kelly I hope you got that kitty issue fixed. Hahaha crackin' myself up..play on words "fixed". Anyway no need for more kitties in the world. There sure are alot of them.

Shelly how's things with your brother? Did you get time to visit? Hope so.

Lynn saw some of the pics from your weekend. Looks like the opening was a success.

Tori may have some serious issues. Skinned her knee last week and tho it looked like it was healing fine, all of a sudden fri she had a fever and by saturday the entire area around the knee was red and hot . Got her to dr and put on antibiotics, thought it was getting better but now at dr for follow up and they don't like the way it looks. Waiting for an update. Boy if its not 1 thing its another.

I'll try to check in later.
In meantime hope you all are having beautiful weather like we are!

Susan, I'm sorry about your scratchy throat/etc and also about Tori's situation. Praying both of you are better soon!

I'm home without any overnight trips until I leave for Europe. Of course, I leave for Europe in 10 days or so.

Well Dr upped the meds, drew another circle around the area (they drew one saturday) and said she has to stay home from school til follow up, leg elevated, and cold compresses 3x a day. Wednesday follow up so unless it gets worse we will have to wait til then for a new update. Poor girl is mad because she loves school. Not at all like her dad or little brother who would rather stay home for video games then go to school. lol.

Hmmm just realized my throat isnt scratchy anymore....maybe I dodged the bullet???

OMG it is actually hot in my house. Woke up this morning and its already 78 in here. Now I ama cold weather kinda gal. I live by the motto that in the winter you can always put more cloths on to keep warm but in the summer you can only take so much off!!! lol

Today I'm going to make it a day of planning. Our next gathering of my group will be doing tags and I think I want to try to come up with 12 tags of Anything. Kind of like the 12 tags of Christmas but instead for everyday use. Love making tags so thias is going to be fun coming up with the next project.

Hello Jeanette glad you"ll be around for at least a few days before Europe. Lucky girl!

Hello Kelly, Shelly, and Lynn. I stopped by all of your blogs the other day and WOW. Beautiful cards!!!

Hugs to all

Hi Susan... you hot babe!

It was 77 in our home yesterday - most of the day. It did cool down to 74 by the time I woke this morning. Had the ceiling fans going, that's for sure. I may open some windows today.

Sorry that I continue to be missing in action. I thought after last week things would calm down around here, but no. This week is just as crazy with unexpected health issues with my Dad and church responsibilities. Dad is doing O.K. just repeated trips to the doctor for removal of skin cancers from his head and ears after a life in the sun unprotected.

The opening at the museum was amazing with over 500 in attendance including one of my high school friends, one of my teaching partners, and Bryan and Amanda's third grade teacher.

I promised you all some pictures so here are a few.

Hopefully I can get back later this evening and catch up on everyone!! Today, more time at the doctor with Dad and the church preparing for a funeral tomorrow.

I've missed you guys and am anxious to get back to crafting!

Oh No!!!!!!! Did I see Lynn????? Sweet lady you have been missed!!! What awesome photos! It looks like a museum I would enjoy. If I'm ever in Texas I will make it a point to try and visit it. Love history! So sorry about your dad. Hope everything goes well for him. Hugs.

Jeanette Boy did we get the storms here! It poured and the lightning show was unbelieveable! That rain sure did help though..my Lily of the Valley not visible yesterday is poking out all over now. Over night they appeared 3" tall. Guess they were thirsty. heehee

Well its going to be cooler today high 70. My kind of weather although they said more rain but thats ok we didn't get much rain in April and our May flowers need it. Going to visit with an old friend from Naperville today. She's coming out today and we're going to check out a gourmet donut shop in Dundee. Interesting.
Tori update....leg still looks yucky to me but Dr said it's doing good and she can return to school today but no gym until after next check up next week. She has to keep up the 2 antibiotics and cold compresses but shes excited to get back to school and her friends.

Waving to Kelly and Shelly.

Enjoy your day ladies!!

Each of you are a big blessing in my life! I'm so grateful for you on this recognized day of prayer!

Oh Lynn! Marvelous photos!! What an incredible event to be part of and something that will show such history and pride. WOW! Such beautiful people, too!

We are MAD BUSY here!!! Just one hour rolls into the next. On my way to church (where the BSA meetings are) for the big spaghetti dinner. Come on by - I'm on salad and garlic roll and then hostess duty! ♥

Oh and some SUPER FUN news ............ Victoria passed her driving test yesterday! She had the FUN-est guy as her DMV - the girl would have had a perfect score, even in my HUGE SUV didn't knock over a single cone BUT forgot in her nervousness to put on her turn signal! minus 5 points, LOL. I said It's Miami! NO ONE uses a turn signal! They may as well take it off the cars down here, ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hugs!

Susan, I am glad Tori is making progress... and also good that you had some help giving those flowers a drink.

Kelly, YAY to Victoria!!! Laughed about the turn signal... I hope she can laugh at it too.

I've been up for an hour, Susan, but busy making sandwiches for today's funeral. Now it is on to pack my "things I need for the reception that I can't find at the church" bag. Surprisingly that list is way too long!!

Sure hope Tori's knee continues to heal well and WISH I were a member of your tag making team!! What fun!!

Jeanette, I don't think you will get to retire Hot Sauce any time soon and do all your meetings at home in your jammies!!

Kelly, yippee for Victoria. Another driver in the family should really give you a little extra crafting time!

Hi, Shelly! Hope you are doing well.

Good news on my dad. The second cancer they found on his ear is not nearly as dangerous as the first. They have decided not to reopen the ear for now. We will get to play a little wait and see.

Great news on your dad Lynn. Sure hope you find all your stuff that's needed. Hate it when I don't know where stuff is at. Wish you could be part of the Tag team too but don't worry when it happens I will be sharing! LOL

Kelly...another driver yay! I'm sure not ready for my Victoria to hit that age. heehee Time goes way too fast and I'm not ready to be that old. Its hard to believe that it won't be too long before my grandkids hit that age. I'll have to look to Lynn for advice on coping mentally on accepting the reality that we're old enought to have driving grandkids. LOL

Shelly how are things going? Hows your mom and did you get visit time with your brother?

Jeanette.........so..........working at home.......NICE. Did you stay in "Jammie" all day?? heeheehee

Went to a gourmet donut shop yesterday......oh excuse me they call it a "Craft" donut shop...lol Yeah............not very good. Give me an "Old fashioned" donut anyday!
Tonight I'm going out to a friends house and we're going to be working on making some sort of lantern from a Heartfelt Creation tutorial. Junes idea for tonight not mine. My idea is a birthday tag Tim Holtz made Hope we get to that!

Well guess I'm heading over to the blogs to see what you have all be up to. Check in later. Have a great day!

Hmmmm... I wonder if Susan is enjoying the quiet of the early morning, not to mention the worm. You know what they say, "The early bird catches the worm."

Oh, I hope not, Lynn. I actually much prefer going to the meetings and having them in person. But the cot can be prohibitive sometimes, so we do a lot of "Go-To Meetings" on our computers/phones, too.





Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Default Hello

Hi ! We are having a beautiful day! Spring is here! We have daffodils blooming and also a redbud tree in full bloom. We are also watching birds. So many beautiful birds! My favorite are the Baltimore Orioles!

We have had a crazy week with doc appts for mom and other stuff..... happy the weekend is here.

Yesterday, while I was out picking up mom, the van decided to not start, luckily, we were 2 blocks from church, where we were headed to next, so walked & Ray came and picked us up after our adoration hour and he finished up taking care of it- it has a new battery, go guessing maybe the alternator? It went out at momís day care.

I got a boatload of crafting supplies from the sale that were donated from sellers for ESSE, the day care including a Cricut. I had met up with an employee of the Day Care in the parking lot before picking up mom to deliver the items.

Oh Lynn, the museum opening looks so wonderful!!! So glad it was such a great success!!!
Hope Dadís skin cancer heals quickly from removal! Yikes, when we were kids, we sunbathed using baby oil!

Jeanette, nice to have meetings at home Does Brock love the nice weather? Is he an outdoors kid when it gets nice out?

Susan, glad Tori is on the mend! Sounds like your crafty group is a blast! Your projects and escapades are always fun to hear about : ) We had crazy storms here too, loud thunder!

Kelly- yeah, another driver! And congrats to your oldest for graduating with honors- so awesome!!! Proud mama : )

Hope to get inky today, needing lots of sympathy cards lately. This week, a funeral for a 65 yr old woman I used to work with. Died in her sleep..... just a history of hypertension.... It was like a reunion... she was very funny, so we shared good stories as we mourned her passing.

Happy day, all!

Right behind ya Shel, in both the drive by post,lol, and the running around and always something! I'm sorry to hear about your car but glad Ray was there to rescue you!

DD is on the loose!! i mean, on the road! She took the car to work today and I admit, I got teary eyed as she drove away. She's my little baby girl and it was hard not to be petrified but she's a VERY good driver. I need to have faith.

Anyone taking advantage of any NSD sales? I meant to head over to Unity but keep keep getting sidetracked! I'm home this evening but tomorrow is church, then across town to an eagle scout ceremony for 3 scouts that made eagle and the parents are hosting a triple party. Fun!

We made BANK at the spaghetti sale fundraiser! It was a loooooooooong day - 11 am til 9 pm! Glad that is not my 'job' and hats off to those who do that all day long for those hours. Whew!

We are getting settled for upcoming vacy! We are heading to the upper east coast (FL) for a 3 day beach stay! SWOON! I love love LOVE the beach!!! ♥

Wishing everyone a great afternoon!

Shelly, I'm sorry to hear of your vehicle problems, but so thankful you were stranding too far away from help. That would be rough when you have Mom with you! Brock loves going to the garden with his dad - and seeing the cows. He also loves taking walks in the park, and of course feeding his ducks. But he does that year-round. The weather isn't going to stop him. LOL!
Kelly, what a wonderful vacation you have planned!!! I love the beach, too... but never get to go. Something about the distance to it, I suppose. Plus (*gasp!) my DH isn't much a fan of the beach and surf. Alas.

Susan, how are you doing? Did you have a good weekend?

Lynn, I'm sure you've been busy - with funeral dinners, activities at church, etc... but we miss you when you aren't here.

Well, this is the week. I leave for Europe on Friday - way too early in the morning, too, since we're flying out of Chicago mid-day and it's a lot further to Chicago than St. Louis, where I usually fly out from. I have way too much to do in the 4 short days I have left.




Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok Jeanette....C'mon lets go...get packing

lol I got the whip out! 4 days...4 stinking days!! Not much time!



Shelly so sorry about van hope all is fixed!


Kelly I remember I was so sad the first time my eldest took our van out. I was a wreck! He was a good beginner driver but still had me worried since we did not have a normal size car and he had to drive our huge van. He had a huge sticker made for the tire cover on the back of the van (thats where they use to keep the spare) it was a Skull that said The Beast. He had it put on before I even knew about it. lol


I had an ok weekend. Stressful...after 23 yrs we finally decided to go get a new mattress. Yep I know...we over extended the recommended life span of a mattress. heehee. Anyway...OMG when did the prices get so high?? Did you know that some stores have a bed machine that you lay in and it calculates the perfect mattress according to how you and your spouse lay? Wierd. Anyway we have a Calif. Queen bed but now they no longer make Calif "Queen" mattress's nor do they make Calif Queen beds and our room cannot accommidate a Calif King without 1 of us giving up a dresser. So now we have to go furniture shopping (we needed a new bedroom set anyway) but so many changes need to be made. We cannot have a foot board because now with a normal 80" length mattress my Dh's feet will hang over the edge a bit. UGHHHH! If only we could chop off his feet...heehee. Just kidding. I guess good news is I'm getting a bedroom makeover (yay for me) bad news DH looses 4" off the mattress.


Closet cleaning while Claire Bear takes her nap today so no real fun planned. Ohhh..and I'll have to post later to show you the box June and I made friday night. It was a Heartfelt Creations tutorial. Very cute.


Have a great day!


Hi Lynn!

Susan, you are such a slave-driver.

Whew! I'm glad you were just kidding about DH's feet!

I can't wait to see what you made!

LOL...Its a "Skill" Jeanette a very special "Skill"!

Anyway so friday night my friend wanted to try her hand at a Heartfelt Creation box she had seen. She pinned the tutorial which was not a video so we had to figure out what the lady was writting. Took us 3.5 hours to make it and it turned out very cute. We made a minor adjustment of covering the bottom with a piece of cardstock since the directions just had you fold the flaps on the bottom in. No glue or taping and we found the bottom kept opening. So we taped it up and glued on some extra cardstock.

Now altho this is cute it is pretty fragile and I'm not quite sure what to do with it. I mean you really shouldn't put anything in it cuz the constant in and out of hands will no doubt ruin the butterflies. So for right now it's just sitting on my mantle. Any ideas??????

WOW, Susan!! That butterfly box is an amazing beauty!! Hope you are enjoying your new mattress and that your husband still has all his toes!!

Shelly, sorry about the car issues. It seems to me that as soon as we get one issue ironed out another one always pops up to take its place. I hope the repairs have all been handled by now.

Jeanette, I love your Monday graphic. That is me in the toilet for sure. This week-- must replace my complete air conditioning system. I am waiting to hear from my repair man about just how fast that can happen. It is getting hot here in Texas! I may have to move to my mother's for a few days.

I love that you are about to jet off to Europe!! I look forward to hearing all about your travels. Poor Hot Sauce is going to feel left out!

Kelly, I didn't get in on any of the NSD sales but I did get 29 packets of Journey paper at Tuesday Morning, thanks to you!! I only left them the yucky colors I didn't like. I also buy my Skinny Syrups there to flavor my water and tea. I love that store!!
Enjoy your three days at the beach!!! I am so jealous!!

I'm off to Christ's Kitchen and will check in again later!

Oh no! Lynn, air conditioning is a must where you live, I'm sure! I hope they get it taken care of pronto. I am sweating for you.

Thanks... I'm looking forward to the trip... and am working on marking things off of my pre-trip to do list. I don't want to leave something important undone, so I made multiple lists. LOL! Hot Sauce will be lonely, for sure.

Our DD flies in on Tuesday (from Alaska), which of course is shortly after I leave. She will be here for a 6 weeks or more. She takes over use of Dad's car while she's here, but he has a pickup, too. He is hesitant to drive Hot Sauce even when I'm gone because he knows how particular I am with her... so my guess is Hot Sauce will be a garage car the entire time I'm gone.

Oh my gosh Lynn....I am such a wuss and a crab when it comes to my comfort. I am not a heat person so if it gets to 80 I have the air on and don't even get me started on humidity! LOL Every one I know keeps moving south for retirement and we want to go North. Hope you were able to get your air fixed cuz yep it's hot down there!

Jeanette you must be done by tomorrow! Are you close?? Don't make me look for that whip again! heeheehee Honestly I am sooo excited for you. This sounds like an awesome trip. Now don't forget I need as many tidbits as possible from you since I live vicariously through your adventures since I have such a fear of planes and water when you can't see land. I may never get over seas or to exotic places by I will have wonderful daydreams with your stories. Enjoy and we will miss you immensely!

Kelly...glad your fundraiser was a success! It is a ton of work tho but you made it! Now you sure do deserve that little Vacay at the beach. Have you gone already? If not enjoy yourself and don't forget the sunscreen and drink alot of fluids. Yep I'm a mom...hahahaha

Shelly...well here we are in the rain again. The lawns are soooo green tho. All my daffodils have bloomed and died and the bluebells are in full bloom right now. All the various crabapple trees I have are i full bloom too but the rains definately bumping off the petals. Love seening all the birds back again. The Orioles are enjoying their oranges and the Cardinals are in the ground feeder dishs alot. The Blujays (the little boogers) are chasing off the wrens but they hold their ground with that loud chirpping! Its so serene waking up to the various chirping around here. I bet it's the same by you. So how did the craft sale go? Success?

No plans today...Jim is out visiting former employer for some ex co-workers retirement breakfast so I get Nick and Claire by my self today. Hmmmm...going to need extra tylenol for my back. lol

I'm melting!!!!! Seriously, it hasn't been awful yet. Gets pretty toasty from 3 to 6. I am on the schedule (I think) to have a brand new system installed next week. So glad I am going to be hoteling it for the next 4 days!! Then I'll probably move to Mother's until my house is cool again!

Best wishes, Jeanette, on your exotic travels!!

Susan, I'm wishing I had some of your rain right about now!!

Default Hello!

Jeanette- happy packing and what an awesome trip!!! I will keep you and your group in prayers!

Lynn, Oh Lynn, I cannot imagine no AC!!! I guess I always associate the heat with some degree of humidity, which you do not have too much of down there, do you? I was working hard today running upstairs, then down to the basement doing laundry. I was so hot, I had to take a 2nd shower.....!

Susan- Oh Susan! We were in the city today when the storm rolled through- it was a quick flash and gone. Luckily, we were indoors by just a few minutes too. It sure does make the humidity go down though, doesn't it?

Your butterfly project is stunning!!! It looks so fragile : ) Where do you see these gorgeous projects???

Kelly- that is an all day fundraiser! Hope it made tons of ca$h!!!
Your beach vacation sounds fantastic- and I hope it is delightful! Does that mean little man is out of school for the year?

We are 'fostering' my daughters dog. When you sign a lease that says NO pets AND, ask the landlord if you can have a dog and he says no, why would you get a dog??? She has 3 more months on her lease- so she blinked her eyes at my hubby like daughters do, and he could not say no. The dog LOVES him too. He is sweet and seems smart and listens as well as a 3 month old puppy does.....

The crafting sale went fairly well- I made over $300.00 I need a die cutting machine-am trying to decide what to buy. Another Big Shot? I will use a 40% off coupon, or do I need a Gemini? My Big Shot goes through one way, but makes horrible grinding noises going in the opposite direction. It still works, but I'd like to be prepared if it breaks ......

Hugs to you all! My dear crafty friends : ) It sure would be cool if we could all meet IRL someday!!!

Shelly

Good Morning Paper-Loving Inky Friends!




I hope you have a FANTASTIC





Lynn, yikes! Not until next week??? Just think of the calories you'll melt off from the heat. Seriously, I hope you do okay and the installation goes smoothly, too!

Shelly, I had to giggle. It sounds to me like your DH is the one who has the new dog. Won't the pup have bonded with him by the time the three months are over? My DH will do almost anything for our DD, but I don't think she'd ever convince him to foster a dog for her. He is not a dog person - in any fashion. In fact, he's actually quite afraid of them. Hmmmm... maybe that's where Brock gets his fear. Is fear hereditary???

Susan, I know you'll pop in later... so Hi there! I hope your day goes well and you get your craft on!

Kelly, you're likely commuting already... be safe! What sweet thoughts you have to keep you company as you roam the roads... of beaches and vacation.





Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yep I'm popping in late today. Got carried away cleaning out my closet. OMG the "OLD"
cloths I have held onto. Can you say velour jogging suits???? 3 of them! LOL and I never jog anywhere. Well maybe to the bathroom ROFL. Anyway a huge box is now ready for Goodwill.

Safe travels Jeanette....don't forget us!!! Don't fall in love with Europe and not come back.

Oh Lynn....you poor thing I'd be melting too! Glad you'll get some "Cool" from the hotel and then you should go to your moms at least you have someplace to go.

Shelly glad the storms were'nt too bad in the city and it was pleasent sleeping with the windows opened since the humidity did go down like you said. I actually love the rain. Everything smells so fresh afterwards. We need to work on this meeting thing. It would be wonderful.

Kelly is probably gone but I'm sure she'll check in on her phone just to make sure she doesn't miss anything.....sooooo HELLO! Kelly

Oh and I ran out to my Tuesday Morning and guess what they were just putting out???? The FSJ paper. My store seems to be a bit behind when it comes to putting out items but glad it is because I went for a new bathmat and came home with 18 packs of the colors I like. I left the papers I didn't care for. SO YAY for me!!

Got to go figure out dinner!
Hope everyone had a great day
