I need to catch up here--This week I am experiencing some outlook email issues with my computer--it seems that every 10 or so emails and I get the 'blue screen of death' freeze out and have to reboot my entire system! Aaack! This ol' gal (my computer) is starting to feel her age too!!! So, if I get a lil' quiet around here-it means I can't put up with it any longer and have brought my tower into PCWiz for repair--maybe next week...need it this weekend!

On a funny note--I am designing a chicken card for my UK/USA swap challenge today--amongst other things...Have you all see the WhipperSnapper Designs new stuff--cute! Janice sent me a coupla chicken images and I am doing my best to be silly and well you know me...now that I have chickens living next door--getting a lil' goofy with my card!!!

Have a great weekend everyone--I have to read back to catch up here--Linda's cameo-congrats and have fun....checking out the mojo "HERE" now... lattah gattah's!

Oh..Patti--enjoy AZ...lotsa pictures please?

Had hoped to post a listing and pics of Linda's and Tracie's February "kit"s, but didn't get home from work until now. We got hit with a huge lake effect snow storm overnight. Every one of our day shift nurses was at least 1/2 late into work, and even though I go opposite the rush hour traffic on the way home from work, it took me 3 x my usual commute time. And lots, and lots, and lots of our schools are closed. What a way to start vacation!

Even though I am off work til Feb. 18, I don't head out to AZ til Feb. 10. My annual February scrappin weekend starts on this coming Thursday, and I will get dropped off at the airport on the way home from Maplebrook Memories. I cannot wait to hold that new granddaughter!

Sus, you and your chickens just crack me up!!

Sorry, girls, if you heard me giggling when everyone was talking about having trouble getting down low on the floor and getting back up again with the old creaky knees/legs. But I was only giggling in recognition....ouch! When did I get so old??

Kathy, my DD did P90X for awhile and boy, did she get buff! She has been in athletics and in good shape all her life, and she said that P90X kicked her butt! I give you lots of credit for tackling that particular workout!

Tracie, it's okay that the February package made it a little early...even though I haven't had time to play with all those wonderful things---yet--they are all sooooo gorgeous, I am enjoying just eyeing them!

Linda, congrats on the Cameo!! I hope you get it up and working soon, and let us know all about it!! The good and the bad, what you think of it, EVERYTHING!! You sure are lucky lately, I agree with Tracie, you should buy some lottery tickets!!

Oh, Imke, you certainly may look and look and make a wish list of all the PTI goodies, just no buying until you get those card kits for your month
and I will be watching my mailman for a German package...

Ooooo, so much more to write, but I booked a manicure for my first day of vacation, and I need to call them (they just opened), to see if the nail tech came in on this horrible weather day. If so, I need to head out.
Hope to be stopping in again here and there before leaving for Maplebrook on the 7th and Phoenix on the 10th. In the meantime, I scheduled a manicure, pedicure, hair color, massage, and Merry Maids to come and give my house a good cleaning before I travel. I'm planning on making this a great couple of weeks off work!

Hope you are all doing well, keeping warm and comfy, and having a great day!

Althea is shinning down on us today...

Last night the lady in charge of Althea's event this Sunday called and ask if I would design a nice poster for the "toasting" table at Althea's event. Althea was not a drinker but her favorite soda was "Moxie"! I of course said YES!

So this morning I needed Althea's husband -Steve’s cell #--I call Bob T (other neighbor to ask if he has it handy). He gives it to me and asks if I need anything while he’s out. I told him I was going to ask Steve for a empty can of “Moxie” for this project I am making for Althea’s event for Sunday. Bob say’s, ‘Well, let’s not bother Steve—I’ll look for one while I am out!” I say, “Okay, thanks!”

Bob tells me to hold on…and gets back on the phone and say’s, “Andyman Bakery only has the plastic bottles of Moxie—Do you want that?” I say, ‘Well, I really had my heart set on their bright orange can---for the graphics and it’s more brand recognizable for my poster display” He say’s “Okay, I will look for one of those while I am running errands.” (How sweet my neighbors are huh?)

No sooner are we saying our good-bye’s and Bob say’s…Wait, wait…I have a Moxie can for you! Huh? He said, I was walking to my car and there was an orange can –I turned it over and it is a Moxie can right near where I parked in the grass by the parking lot!!! I say, Well, I have to have that can—that is Althea shining down on us! We both got goose-bumps…he put the can in my mailbox on his way home!!!



I just washed out that can and letting it dry!

I am cleaning house, not playing with my cameo. Glenn's daughter Glenda is coming tomorrow for 5 days and she does not do crafts at all so may not get to play much until next weekend. I made one thing and it was fun...a lady at the help center walked me though it but I have a lot to learn and remember....wow!! But I do love it and can't wait to play with it.

Back to housecleaning......

Hi Ladies!! So glad the packages are starting to arrive. Heather I mailed yours quite a while ago but I know it takes forever. Hopefully you'll get it soon.

Sorry you can't play with your new toy Linda...but the Gina K video Kathy mentioned sounds great. Love her videos!! Maybe you can squeeze it in soon.

Wow Susanne, I agree she is keeping tabs on the event!!

Good Saturday morning, ladies! I finally was able to get photos of the February “kits” that Linda and Tracie sent me! Setting these goodies up to photograph made me feel extra grateful all over again…all the time, thought, and effort that went into these packages. We really do have a great group of ladies (everyone!) here. Both ladies were so generous, it would take me a whole page just to list everything. And don’t get me wrong, ladies, I really do LOVE everything sent to me, but here’s a few of of the things that just jumped out at me when I first opened these gorgeous gifts!

Linda’s kit was chock full of reds, and pinks, and hearts! And all the images had heart themes to them. Loved the die cut hearts and flourishes: all of these goodies will be great to make some cards to give my sister as a gift. Since she works in a marriage ministry, she sends lots of thinking of you, and anniversary cards with a love/couples theme. The wonderful things you sent, Linda, will be perfect for making Sue a birthday gift of great cards! And, I can make some gorgeous cards to replenish my anniversary supply. The glue pen is perfect for those little teeny, tiny die cuts and flourishes. And, you know how much I love my kitties, that die cut kitty is awesome! Of course, my favorite Milky Way Simply Caramel Bars never made it into the picture!! Linda, thank you so much for a very wonderful package!

When I first opened Tracie’s kit, I couldn’t help but giggle. She and I have very similar taste. In fact, I sent Tracie a note telling her that the crocheted flowers she sent me by “My Mind’s Eye” were the very same ones I bought to include in her kit!! LOL!! We both really like “My Mind’s Eye” papers, and this kit had the “Breeze” paper pad with matching embellies, an awesome curly wreath die, and the stamped images Tracie included were of kitties and flowers…two o’ my faves! There so many handmade paper-crafted goodies holding edible goodies that I was in awe! Keurig coffee cups package in the cutest little holder, a cereal mix in a cute handmade package, Ghirardelli chocolate, also in a handcrafted package! Plus, Tracie also thought of my love for my kitties with a sweet magnetic cat bookmark. Tracie, you must have spent hours putting this box of fun together! Many, many thanks to you, too!!

I feel truly lucky and grateful to be a part of this group. You all are so wonderfully generous, thoughtful and supportive! Thank you!

Jo, I'm with you on The Container Store! Good thing the closest one to me is 100 miles away or I'd never have any money! (not that I have any now! ) How's Holli doing? Still into puppy mischief? And I love your FB updates on the funny/cute things your boys say!

Vickie, how have you been feeling? Hope the headaches that have been plaguing you have stopped!

Pat, any crafting trips coming up for you? I've been thinking about you and all the fun trips you take as I get ready for next weekends Maplebrook Memories trip. New place for our fun little group (two sis-in-laws, my sister, my daughter, my bestie, and a couple of other gals), I'm interested to see how MBM compares to the Craft Farm that we've gone to for the last 4 years.

Still trying to get caught up on the posts around here....you'd think i'd know better by now not to miss more than a day or two around here.

Still freezing cold here in Ohio, temps in the teens for highs. Can't wait to get on that big metal bird and fly off to Arizona...

Have a great weekend!

Patti your trip to Arizona sounds wonderful...below freezing here too!! We've planned a little overnight roadtrip this month, weather permitting to Northern IN. It's Matoon, IN and I have been in the area before, when I into counted crosstitching and my sister and I would go every spring to a convention they had in Rockome Gardens. Anyway I think its in the general area. We are going to a scrapbooking mall?? Daisy Lane. I didn't know about it but the other girls have been and are excited about going back.
In March we have a four day weekend trip planned near Kentucky Lake. That should be lots of fun. A scrapbook store is having it in a conference area of a state park and we are staying at the lodge there. Of course we will have to run into town and do some shopping at their store.
I need to get showered and dressed, we are going to a crop at the library in the next little town untill 4 and then having dinner out. After dinner we are continuing to crop at a fairly new LSS until 12(midnight). Busy day!! Will do chores tomorrow...another fast weekend!!
Hope everyone has time to get crafty this weekend!!

Good morning everyone!

Patti, headaches are so random, but so far so good. It's been a week since a bad one.

Our weather is also so sporadic; warm then cold, then rain, then wind, then snow! It's snowing pretty heavy this morning.

I still need to take a pic of the kit I received from Tracie; but, alas, the cute Valentine mix is gone, I held off as long as I could but needed a snack last night, so shared it with DH!! Then, the raspberry and orange filled Ghirardelli squares were shared with no one...I "needed" an afternoon snack yesterday. LOL Chex mix still kinda intact, and can only hope it makes it into the picture!!

Susanne, goosebumps for sure reading your Moxie story.

Patti, enjoy your vacation!

Linda, enjoy your visit with Glenna.

Angela, what a fun shoppiing trip with Ivy; you are both in my thoughts and prayers.

Pat, I'm gonna have to investigate the northern Indiana scrapbook mall!! What a cute name, Daisy Lane. Hmmm....may have to schedule a road trip to see what it's all about!

CKC will be in Fort Wayne (Indiana) the end of May. I'm planning to attend since Tracie got me "hooked" on that event!!

Guess I should fix some breakfast and start the day (I've been up since 8:30 and started making stick pins and lost track of time!)

Hope everyone has a fabulous day.

Great packages, Patti!

Have never been to the Container Store...sounds interesting though....

Susanne, that is so strange, but cool, about the soda can.

Patti and Pat, your upcoming trips sound amazing!

Kathleen, Ivy is raising money to go on a People to People trip overseas the summer of 2014. It's quite expensive and we don't have that kind of money, but I told her I would do everything I could to help her earn the money to make it happen. We have raised over 1/8 of the money so far and she will have over a year to raise the rest. I'm sure it will slow down after Valentine's Day, but we have a lot of ideas and help from family and friends. (She is going to return to Chicago for mission work this coming summer; she already has enough money in her church account for that. She said she plans to do it until she goes off to college.)

We sold cupcakes and cards today; she went home early because the cupcakes sold out. Tonight is their MORP dance at school. I offered to take her friends to eat; drop them off and then pick them up and drive them to the dance afterwards. I really didn't think they would want me around. I was surprised when she invited me to stay..."my friends like you". Of course, when she told me that I was so shocked I fainted and they had to call the paramedics.... LOL So as the place was filling up with kids, I asked them if they wanted me to go eat in the bathroom. LOL

Does anybody have a Kitchen Aide stand mixer? I bought one today; I have never had a nice mixer...always a cheapie hand mixer. Am excited to try it out; girls at work gave it rave reviews.

Anybody going to any Super Bowl parties tomorrow?

Angela: the Container Store ... (insert choir of angels singing here) is like Ikea except it's all gadgets for organization. Literally, it is my version of heaven. Ken is thrilled that the closest one is 55 miles away, otherwise I would be there ALL the time. I installed a spice rack over the door with this visit and I want to organize the garage the next time.

I have a kitchen aide mixer. I like it. The only thing I don't like is that you can't tilt the head back like you can with a standard machine but ... it doesn't smoke like my old one. I mix heavy batters and I can fry a motor in 2 seconds flat.

Patti: What is the puppy doing? chewing. She loves to walk (the boys and I walk her 1.5 miles daily and Ken runs with her for about a mile too.) THAT amount of exercise keeps her tired and not as obnoxious.

Angela- I think it's great that Ivy earned the money for this trip. I'm sure she succeeds. There is still plenty of time. Who can resist these delicious cupcakes ?

Jo- I have no idea with dogs but Holli takes a lot of attention, hm ? I think that's probably the case with every puppy ? I wish that it will be better soon - Especially the chewing.

Pat- How was your crop ?

Patti- Your kits looks wonderful. Have fun with your new goodies !

Linda- Have a great time with Glenda. It goes ahead with your Cameo ?

Kathy- I can smell your Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake

Wish you all a marvelous Sunday !!

Good Sunday Morning! I've been up since 2:15 this morning. Just couldn't sleep any longer, so I did the taxes. Took me 2 1/2 hours, what a pain in the you-know-what. I wish my DH appreciated all the time, effort and headaches go into doing that stuff (even with using Turbo Tax), but he has no idea. ugh! But I'm glad to have that chore over with for the year.

Jo, good thing puppies are so cute, because the chewing, and the potty training, and all that good stuff, can make you wanna (insert nasty deeds here). My daughter's husky, when it was a puppy, loved to chew her pantyhose--unfortunately, it resulted in several trips to the vet since I guess pantyhose can cause intestinal blockages! She learned to give him hydrogen peroxide whenever he ingested stuff so that he would vomit. Lovely image, isn't it?! One good thing about having a dog is having to walk the pup forces you into exercising every day! My DH keeps talking about getting a dog, and I've got my heels dug in hard, resisting. Hmmm, maybe I should give in, just so I'd start walking again!

Vickie, what date(s) is CKC? If I can get off work, maybe we can make plans to meet up. Fort Wayne is only 3 1/2 or 4 hours drive from me.

Pat, sounds like you have some fun trips planned! Daisy Lane sounds like a good time, and I think a state park lodge weekend would be awesome! I'm sure you will enjoy yourself!!

No Kitchen Aide for me...all I have is a hand mixer. But I'm not much of a baker. Sad in some ways, but good in others, because if I was a baker, I'd weigh twice as much as I do now, because I'd eat it all!!

We are going to a Super Bowl party this evening at some friends from church. I don't think I've ever gone to a Super Bowl party before. Most of the time, I've been working, or just watched bits and pieces of it at home. I love football, it's my favorite sport to watch, so I think this will be fun. You can bet I will be rooting for the 49ers, just because the Ravens are not very popular here in Cleveland (Art Modell moved the Cleveland Browns to Baltimore in the 90's--now known as the Ravens--and we were without an NFL football team until 1999. Most Clevelanders have never forgiven him (may he RIP), and hate the Ravens because of the "betrayal". Cleveland is a big football town, and take our Browns very seriously, even though we have not had a team go to the SuperBowl, or been a big winner since the 1980s. Our motto is "Wait til next year"

Angela, you made me laugh with your "reaction" to Ivy's telling you that her friends liked you and that you could hang around at the MORP dance!

well, need a refill of my coffee cup. Enjoy Sunday!

Kathy - Hope the cake is good.

I will watch the superbowl for the commercials. Love the Clydesdales commericals. I am a sucker for any kind of baby so the baby colt should be adorable. I even suggested a name. I thought Bella - Belle of the "Bowl" would be cute.

I have a Kitchen Aid - Received it as a 20 year gift at work. I really like it but it sure takes up alot of space on the counter. Still pull out my hand mixer often also.

I am meeting some friends for brunch today and then not sure when we will do later. I need to make a baby quilt. Maybe I will attempt it.

Well of to post something new on my blog.

Wow Angela, that sounds like a cool trip for Ivy. Do you know where overseas they will go? And what kind of things do they do for People to People? I was in a People to People program in HS, but it was more of a tutoring, big brother, big sister program. Ivy's doing great raising the money already and she has plenty of time. So smart to get an early start. I think by raising the money herself she will appreciate the trip so much more than if someone just handed her the money. She sounds so responsible! That's cute that she wanted you to hang out at dinner and that her friends like you! That must have been fun.

I love the container store, too Jo. We don't have one near us now, but did when we were in NY.

Going to frost the cake this morning Tracie, looks so good! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Patti, you've been up for a while! Good to get the taxes done, even if it's a pain. Always a relief to have that done. Have fun at the Superbowl party! I had no idea of that story of moving the team. I know when things like that happen, fans never forget! We are rooting Ravens, only because Joe Flacco the QB is a University of DE grad, and that's where Chuck and I both went.

Tracie, have fun working on the quilt! I like the commercials too and the halftime show, too.

I love my Kitchen Aide! I use it every week. I make bread dough in it twice a week and use it for other baking things, too. We have the attachment for grinding meat, which is great, too. Mine is white, but I love the pink one!

Hope everyone has a great Sunday!

Good morning!

So much going on here!

I have a kitchen aide and love it! It has it's own spot on the cabinet. I usually have to move it when I want to use it and it's very heavy! ugh.

Pattie I love your kits mine is not finished but I'm hoping to get it mailed and to you before you leave for vacation so I need to get busy here!

Hi ladies, just popping in before church. Glenda is going with us today.

I have a kitchen Aid and it is way to heavy for me to lift. I rarely use it because it is stored in the pantry. I just did out my old light portable. My kids would love to have it.

Hope to check back in later.

Patti, the CKC Ft. Wayne is May 31 and June 1. It would be wonderful to meet up!!! Hope it works out! Would love to meet you IRL!! I'll post a link the the Ft. Wayne site.

Hope everyone has a super Sunday! Guess it is Super Bowl Sunday....I've never watched it; don't even know who is playing or where it's being played...guess I'm not really sports-minded. If my kids and/or grandkids are playing, then I watch!!

Happy SuperBowl Sunday Everyone! Ahhh...finally relaxing after a very busy weekend. I went to my LSS AE's 15 year birthday celebration yesterday morning--brought my homemade oatmeal choc chunk cookies and orange slices--When I walked in the door and hollared..."Who want's breakfast?" lotta takers! We made (4) cards at the Make & Takes tables and I won some cool Dylusions Sprays with my raffle ticket--it was fun--nice people, good positive energy...And, after the classes--I finally bought my bow die! hahaha I bought the cute (more rounded style die) by MFT...can't wait to open it! Also we made a card using Starfoam stickers--really neat--not stickers in the sense like we know them...but lines of sticky silver/black (a lot of colors available) hollowed out 12" designs to enhance a card--So think about wanting to frame something with a small shinny design--BINGO--these stickers strips (if you will) just pull off and you place it on a card--check em out--I know I am "enabling" again..but they are cheap fun! I bought silver--it looks like metal--kinda cool

Last night up until 2am-then up this morning at 6AM--baked 2 kinds of cookies (doubled recipes) so I did that, made place cards for all the food and items and the Moxie poster--by the time I hoped in the shower to go to the event--I asked Tom to circle around grab mama a coffee so I can get some spunk back! Oy Vey was I tired--but, I have to tell you the turn out in Althea's memory was amazing<--I mean there must have been 300+ people in this huge hall, it was light, airy, the receiving line--we waited 45 minutes and the line never stopped! Lotsa love for Althea>..a very nice event and I am so proud to have been a part of it! I will sleep like a baby tonight! Next week my class here on Saturday!

Well, off to put on the chix for dinner (chili is purring in the crockie) I may sneak in a lil' power nap--Have a good week everyone!

Yesterday's crops were both fun..a few of the same ladies went to both crops. I worked on the 8 1/2 square scrapbook I'm making with photos from my birthday. I am trying to use the AI stamps "girlfriends" into several of the pages. They are so much like the four of us!! I started out with the girls in the little red car heading out for a road trip and everybody loved it. We even picked which lady was "us". Lots of fun!! I have purchased a few other stamps but still waiting for the "girls" under the umbrella. It rained the first afternoon on the road so this will be perfect. I have several photos of us standing under umbrellas.
Hope everyone is having a great SuperBowl Sunday!!

Pat, send us some photos of you gals!!

I am enjoying Glenda and we are getting a lot of visiting done here. She always has her kids and hubby to take care of when they are here and we spend very little time talking to her one on one. She came all by herself this trip so we are all taking advantage of this time.

Had to pop in to let Imke know that a package from Germany has arrived at my doorstep!! It's opened, but I have to go through all the goodies, so I will post pictures, details and a proper thank you a bit later....

Sounds like Susanne, Pat, and Linda had especially busy weekends!

Whew! Susanne, I get worn out just reading all about the stuff you do! What like a lovely tribute to your friend Althea!

Linda, sounds like you are enjoying Glenda's visit without kids!

Vickie, I will see about getting the CKC weekend off, and will check out the website. I'd love to meet you IRL, too!! We'd have such a blast!

Pat, you will have to post some photos of your AI girls and your "girls"! You seem to have the best times!!

gotta go for now...will try to stop in later! Have a great day!

Good morning!

I am going to retake pictures of kit from Tracie; the pics I took are very blurry; erased them from camera and will retake today.

Had a doctor's appointment yesterday with breast doc; everything is good; go back in 6 months. Whew! I always get a little tense with that appointment.

Wishing everyone a terrific Tuesday!

Pictures of February kit from Tracie (thanks again Tracie)

Missing from the kit is the Chex mix and the really cute Valentine treat mix and holder. Chex Mix is long gone as is the treatmix, but the holder is on my computer desk (that's where I munched away on it!) YUM!

Angela, I don't know if you are a member of Pick Your Plum (you just sign up to join). Every day they send you an email of what is the daily special and todays was brightly colored cupcake wrappers and pastry bags and tips. Super cute, I thought of you and Ivy right away!

Vickie - So happy results were good.

Kathy - I have never heard of Pick Your Plum. Something else I need to find.

Off to make a lemon cake to take to work. Always celebrating something at work. I swear I will lose weight when I am not working any more. HA!

Hello everybody!

Vickie, that is great news about your Dr. appt!

We will leave before 4 a.m. tomorrow to head to the Dr.

Kathleen, I will have to check out Pick Your Plum...thanks for the tip, it sounds interesting!

Great packages arriving!

Linda, is Glenda still there? It sounds like you are enjoying your visit!

Tracie, the lemon cake sounds refreshing. Is the frosting a bit tart or sweet?

Just wanted to clarify that I did not go to the dance with the girls, just out for dinner...Ivy would have drawn the line at that! LOL

Davis is staying with my parents tonight and is then going after school tomorrow to make homemade dog biscuits with our friend "Super Sue". Susie is all gung ho to sell them at the Farmer's Markets this summer and is practicing. Davis loves to spend time with her.

Better get things caught up; am trying to get to bed early tonight.

Good news, Vickie! That kind of news is very encouraging! Keep up the good work!! Great kit from Tracie....that lady sure knows how to put a WOW kit together, doesn't she?

I wanted to stop in to post photos of the February kit I received from Imke, but I am having technical difficulties. I use Picasa to edit and resize my photos so they will fit in the gallery and on the thread, and I cannot get the program to open!! I just used it Saturday to post the photos of Tracie's and Linda's kits! Sooo frustrating! I will just have to work on it. Til then...

Imke sent me not one, not two, but THREE kits! (she said she made more kits because I did not ask for any stamps!) One kit has the cutest furniture images...chairs, couches, pillows (PTI "On my Couch") with funny/cute sayings to go along with it. The papers and ribbons are fabulous with deep greens, chocolate-y browns, and peachy/pumpkin color patterned papers. I LOVE, love, love that Imke stamped some of the images for me on patterned paper so that I can paper piece!!

Another kit has PTI's "Lighten Up" and she included tons of die cuts to match the stamps! Papers are in some of my favorite colors of pinks, kraft, and blues. Everything in it will make it soooo easy to make some awesome cards!

The third kit is for me to make a bookmark! It has PTI's "All Booked Up" images (the card you sent, Imke, that was made with this set, is so cute! I was so happy to see that you included some of the images for me!!) Papers, cardstock and embellies in beautiful greens and purples, with the yummiest stip of deep purple felt!

She also included a PTI die for me "Rolled Daisy". I am thrilled, since I do not have that die, and though I am trying not to acquire new stamps, dies are getting to be my new "thing"! I am crazy about dies ever since I got the Vagabond from DH for Christmas!

Oh, and there WAS a most delicious, huge, dark chocolate bar!!

Imke, thank you so very much! You have spoiled me, my dear, and I love you for it!! What a wonderful package to receive! Many, many thanks to you!

Imke, because I wil be gone until February 18, and my birthday package to you took three weeks to reach you, I decided to put your March kit in the mail now. I hope you do not mind if it reaches you before March. And, after I visited the post office, I returned home to find that I left out the card and treat for you. So when I return, I will send another small package with those things I forgot! I must be too excited to go on my trip!
