What must the sunrise look like in Ireland? Shelly, have the time of your life!! I can't wait to hear all you have seen and learned!

Kelly, now that your son is home you can start your family summer adventure!! I had to do the dentist thing last week, too! But.... over and done and ready for fun!! Hope there is a lot of beach time in your future.


Tomorrow is my husband's birthday so I will make my annual sunrise trip to a nearby beach. Of course, the weatherman predicts rain all day!

Good morning, Jeanette! Hope you and your daughter found something fun to explore yesterday.

My son is coming today for lunch and an afternoon together.

Susan, how's the hair growing!! Probably fast as weeds as you lounge by the lake!!

I am off to chop fruit and vegetables at the kitchen! Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Hello Lynn... I'm so glad your son is coming to spend some time with you today! It's certainly too bad the weather tomorrow will not be ideal for your traditional beach time. I'll pray for peace, safety, and I will be hugging you from afar, too.

Hello Paper-Loving Inky Friends!







Hi Lynn... I hope you're doing well this morning!

FYI - We are going to be out-of-town this afternoon through mid-day tomorrow so I'll likely not be on SCS again until my time slot for VSN tomorrow afternoon. Timing isn't the best in the world; since I'll be missing most of VSN, but it is what it is.

Have a GREAT weekend!



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

We are in Amsterdam , arrived yesterday at dinnertime. We are & walked around the city, noisy in the downtown area though!
We will get on the ship today at 2. A week and I hope we have WiFi there!!!

I may play along with VSN a bit, Jeanette. Will certainly try to get your challenge done. I did two of last night's challenges and may play a bit of catch up this morning. I am going mostly with CAS cards that I can actually use.

Shelly, I loved seeing your Irish relatives on Facebook. Can't wait to see Amsterdam and your boat photos!

Susan, did you all roast a whole pig??? I loved your 4th of July celebration pictures, too!!

Kelly, how did your blow-out go? I am sure you celebrated the 4th in grand style! That photo of Alice was quite the patriotic inspiration.

Happy Saturday, all! Hopped on quick to get my VSN Hostess card thumbnails done - it's always fun to be a hostess during this wonderful time! I see Jeanette is one, too - yay! Lynn, if you play along, my theme might be a little 'sticky'

Looks like Shelly is on a DREAM trip, saw a peek of Susan with the pretty hair on FB having fun at the farm, missed where Jeanette is off to but I'm sure it will be grand, and Lynn - thank you! She's 9 months old TODAY! I hope you are doing okay β™₯

La la la - did I hear something about Susan getting something vegetarian to eat? I'm SURE of it! Tee hee!

Enjoy that vacy, girl! 2 more weeks, I'll be right behind you!

I loved your photo on FB with your cute hair and babe in the arms (CLaire Bear, I'm guessing!)

Waving to everyone!

Your Monday started pretty dang early, Kelly!! Where are you all headed for this year's vacation?

Susan, that looked like a true 4th of July blowout!! What fun!!

Jeanette and Kelly, I started great guns on VSN and then pooped out after I had to create that slider card. I am going to go back this morning and add a thank you card to your gallery, Jeanette, and a candy card to your, Kelly!!

I know Shelly must be floating down the river and taking in the European delights right about now!! Must be heavenly!!

Off I go to create!!

Hello Paper-Loving Inky Friends!






Shelly, what fun... I've seen pictures on FB, too! Enjoy your trip... we'll look forward to hearing all about it when you get home.

Susan, yep, I'm sure your meal was vegetarian. (giggling with Kelly, I hope) Looked at your pottery pictures on FB yesterday a wee bit... looked like everyone was enjoying themselves.

Kelly, what a sweetie your 9-month-old is. Her patriotic photo was sooooo cute! Vacation time soon - what fun! I know you'll have a great time wherever you go.

Lynn, look at you doing the VSN (even a bit). Sadly, the only part I've done so far is my own. Having DD here is awesome! It means less time for cards and such but I wouldn't trade these days for anything!

Speaking of DD, I'm going to do my best to enjoy this Monday with my her to the max as she's flying back to Alaska tomorrow. Time with her has gone so quickly.




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

Yep that was my Claire Bear in the pic. She's been such a sweetheart.
Yeah the pig kinda grosses me out. I couldn't watch it getting cut up. Some wasn't fully cooked and ended up on my grill. Luckily for me when it came off it just looked like normal pork chops so serving that wasn't as gross. I did eat a ton of fruit and salads. Lol
Jeanette make today rememberable. Safe travels to dd.
Picking up our pottery masterpieces today. I never took a before pic of mine but I did a serving platter with oak leaves for handles. Might go "Pet a Goat" later. Claire keeps asking..."I Pet a Goat Ama?" Took them to the FARM ZOO last week and now that's all she wants to do lol.

Oh Susan you crack me up!!it sounds like you are loving the cabin life! I know I would, too!

And I hear you on the meat I have to cook six (sometimes eigh) meals including gobs of meat for the carnivores in this family ! Lucky ours comes from Publix

When do you get back again I don’t remember ?

Jeanette enjoy each and every precious moment ! It seems like it went by fast but I forgot she spent two of those weeks traveling with your husband! I’m sure she waits all year with her to do list in the lower 48!

Hello Paper-Loving Inky Friends!







Susan, I can imagine it was an exciting time to pick up the finished pottery! Fun!!!

Kelly, thanks! DD and I did enjoy yesterday. Today is going to be so difficult. I miss her already (and she's just in the other room sleeping right now).

Waving to Lynn and Shelly!

Carnivores....lol too funny Kelly. We should be home around the 17th. The last few mornings I've had some quiet time as d's has taken the kids fishing. Blue gills are the catch but so tiny they have just released them. Thank goodness cuz I don't want to clean fish after the whole pig thing last week. Lol Did I mention the pig was stuffed with chickens which was stuffed with brats?πŸ·πŸ–πŸ”πŸ“πŸ₯–πŸ₯–
Stay strong Jeanette..dd will be back again for another fantastic visit. Does Brock get any special time with sissy?
Lynn you've been making me laugh throughout this horrible hair ordeal. Thanks for all the smiles.πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
Shelly it looks like your having a great time on you trip. Safe travels.
My kids leave tomorrow. Bring on the peace and quiet!

Hello Paper-Loving Inky Friends!








Thanks Susan - I'm trying to be strong. It's just a long l-o-n-g time until we see her again. (She'll be back sometime next summer). Yes, she spoils Brock while she's here. She loves taking him to the park to feed his ducks (multiple times a week) and they always go for a treat afterwards... either to Casey's to get a donut or to the "Orange & Yellow and Red & Green" store to buy a bag of Brock's choice of candies and some cookies for DD. He always has a smile on his face when they get home... he does like his sweets.



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

I can't believe I slept all the way to 6:20 this morning! What a treat!

Sounds like a bittersweet day for ther JP&I girls. Susan is happy to have the peace and quiet of the cabin alone, and Jeanette missing her daughter already!! Kelly planning for her upcoming vacation and Shelly's river adventure coming to an end.

Me, I will have a crafting day here alone. Three cards must be made and mailed and die cuts of palm trees, circles, and mangers made for Bible School. That Gemini Jr. will be smokin' by the end of the day!

Hi Lynn... YAY for sleeping a bit later this morning! And look at you, busy already!

I'm washing all the bedding today; last load in the laundry. Also doing cleaning/organizing. Am going to stop and get creative in a bit. That will ease the blues.

Hmmmm....I'm assuming Orange & Yellow and Red & Blue is a Brock code? Tried to figure it out but nope I'm clueless. Not unusual for me πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„
My group left yesterday and dang it... thought I'd be relieved but miss them already.

Lynn wish I was crafting with you. I always prefer having a crafting buddy around.

Today is antique browsing day. My fave!!!

Happy day to all

Oh, sorry, Susan! I thought I'd mentioned it before. There is a local store here - kind of like a market/bakery plus gardening type of store. They have bulk candies there and Brock loves to get a little bag of fruit slices. He often tells his dad that he wants to go to the "Orange & Yellow, and Red & Green store" - that's the colors of the so important candy. Oh, and did I mention they also have a free sample tray... they give FULL size frosted sugar cookies away as samples. He makes a beeline for it every time he goes.

Hello Paper-Loving Inky Friends!







FYI - Brock and I are leaving this afternoon and won't get home until tomorrow evening so unless I pop back on here for some reason later this morning, you won't see me again until Monday. Have a GREAT weekend!

Safe travels to you and Brock, Jeanette!

Got an oblong hob nob milk glass basket yesterday at a steal. I am a huge fan of milk glass. Love decorating with it on my dining table and fireplace mantle. Then stopped in at a thrift store nearby and found a bunch of clear vases for a faux milk glass project the ladies and I are going to do the 19th. Everyone wanted to make this centerpiece but didn't want to spend the money for all the milk glass needed. Yet alone try to find such a huge lot of it. Then I saw a faux milk glass tutorial with hot glue and "BAM" lightbulbs went off! Cant wait to try this.
Safe travels Jeanette.
Lynn did you get some crafting done?

Hi friends! We are in from a quick overnight/day trip in the glory of The Keys! We had gorgeous weather and the SECOND we got to the end of our street, kaboom - the skies opened up! YAY for great timing!

Susan, I just went with my daughter to a her friend's relatives Estate Sale. It was interesting! Each granddaughter (there are 3) got to keep one thing from Gramma. She chose a Tiffany lamp. There was SO. MUCH. STUFF! We were there for moral support - no shopping And I did hit an awesome LSS while we were so far out of Miami so it was a kinda shopping trip

Susan, are ya'll home now? I can't keep up with where everyone is! I spend day after day with Alice - oh my she is SO ACTIVE! She's all over the place - still not officially crawling but she 'army-mans' it everywhere and is pulling up on the furniture. I think she is going to skip it all together. She's so much fun. But definitely 2 Starbucks in a row to keep playing with her - LOL!

Speaking of - that new Tye Dye Frap? Not. a. fan! It was kinda banana creme flavor, actually, I'm sure sure what it was?! My son LOVED his. Me, not so much! But it is GORGEOUS! It looks like a JoJo Siwa bow in a cup, LOL!!

Getting ready for this week's road trip! I got a head start on laundry and starting to pack and no one is touching the bags once packed! I have a major issue going on with my hop/ball of my foot ..... I am praying I'll be able to walk each day!

Off to find all the cards that played along with my VSN Pop Rocks challenge - it was a delight to see all the strawberry, grape and cherry cards decorateing the gallery. I wish I could have made more for the other hostesses ..... time, time, time!

Hello Paper-Loving Inky Friends!








Susan, yep, I'd stand in line for those cookies. I'd never had one until this summer - didn't even know about the free sample, though apparently Brock goes there often with his dad. LOL! DD told me about them - oh, and she purchased a package of 6 at least once a week while she was here. Oh my! They are delicious!

Kelly, that's funny about the tye die. I was in Bux while on my way to camp. They had a picture and I asked what it was. They said - Oh we're out of them. (Then take down the sign, right?) But she described it as tasting like banana laffy taffy. Yep, I think I would have passed on that. LOL!

Lynn, did you find anything at the estate sale? I love going to those but rarely do.

Shelly, I'm not sure when you're coming home again - but I hope you're having an awesome time!



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