JCI!

Hello ladies I'm sad to say I'm still working on Pattie's kit. I'm going to try and get it out today. I'm very sick and have no strength so please forgive me for running behind. Last couple of weeks have been busy with doctors and test.

Hugs to all!
Lena

I was going to check out the LOVE challenge tonight--looked at the member companies and realize I don't own any other than...who is the skinny lady brand---anyway>..boo hiss...I wish they posted what you could use before the challenge--so you can plan something in advance...

The neighbors that are having the housewarming are not getting too many of my neighbors on my block--so far maybe 4 of us? There is an older couple at the end of our street--but they are always busy/traveling or going to things--if they go it would be 6 of us! I wonder if the weather is really bad--if they will have it...guess I should email the hostess huh? If the weather is bad, my desserts are going to need a 'ride' over!

Rented; Won't Back Down...so off I go! Have a great night everyone

PS. Imke you are funny "the German" haha! I'll say, not only does this Lithuanian say it's good...my friend the German thinks its terrific too!

Good morning!

So how was Claire's birthday?? Yes, it seems she should still be a tiny baby! They grow to fast!

Patti I have your package all packed and ready to go. I fell asleep and when I woke up it was to late to get it to the post office yesterday. I promise it will go out on Monday!

For anyone interested, Scrapping Memories is having a sale that ends at midnight tonight. They have alot of cute digital images. I had made the mistake of ordering the SVG files which didn't work for me. So she gave me a refund and I then ordered digitals. She was sooo nice. My mistake so she really didn't have to issue a refund. Anyway she has lots of digitals for .50 - .77 which is a real bargain.

Going to a one year anniversary sale at the LSS where I teach classes. Hope to find some goodies for the girls on my list.

Hello Ladies...I am home from our soiree at the new neighbor's house! Wow, pretty house and it is all very custom built inside--a very open, wooded feel like a fancy ski lodge with high ceilings and open spaces...No cobwebs!!! haha And everything is just perfect! The one thing I noticed is the kitchen counter (huge long divider from kitchen to dining area--great entertaining counter) is lower than my hip...then I realized the couple that lives there are both fairly short people Ahhh!! This is the one thing I would have to change if I lived there! haha...They loved the cookies (made a new recipe from the Betty Crocker site) "Chocolate Chip baby cookie cakes" (made in my mini muffin tins-doctored up with a second helping of a mixture of cc, pecans, brown sug, egg, vanilla and sent back to the oven to bake!)-- and the chocolate covered pretzels...big hit! Very nice people--also met some other neighbors up the street--and two very young couples that just bought brand new houses! I guess I have to think back when Tom and I bought our first house--we were YOUNG once too--but not nearly the size of their first homes! It was nice to say goodbye and be home (walking) in 3 minutes!

We were teasing Shane that he might have to come pick us up because of us getting obnoxiously rip- roaring drunk and passed out on their front lawn...but that didn't happen! hahahaha (no Susie spilling the wine on the new carpet at this event!) Oh well...There's always next time!

My baby Patrick turns '18' on Monday--we got him a fishing rod/reel, lottery ticks, some other goodies--he wants Steak for dinner tomorrow--so far so good--no snow here yet!

Hope everyone is having a nice Saturday night!

Sounds like you had a nice evening, Susanne!

We traveled for volleyball today. My backside didn't like sitting on bleachers for 7 hours! We got home after supper and had to make a batch of cupcakes to go out tomorrow...it was a fiasco.... They were Red Velvet and Ivy thought the batter tasted "funny"...I tasted it and thought it had a bit of a "tang" to it. I don't eat the batter, so I just thought it was the sour cream in it. Then she was making frosting which has melted white chocolate in it. She nuked that for too long and burned it. It was grainy and gross, so had to be tossed out. When they were done, we decided to share a cupcake...they were a little zippy.... I finally figured out what she had done...she had used lemon pudding in the batter instead of vanilla. I told her to go to the garbage and look at the box; of course she argued, but it was lemon. I could've throttled her! I am constantly hearing "I don't need you, I can do it". I just wish she would be a bit more gracious and accept help when it's offered. Tomorrow we need to make 6 dozen...5 different flavors. I am hoping for no mistakes!

Sounds like everyone has had a fun Saturday night, baking, house warming partying! I'm at work, and had to stop in across the hall to let the image swappers know that I finally got those March images into the mailbox, even though they won't actually get started out to you til Monday morning!

Angela, I remember the days of sitting on volleyball bleachers. Rachel played VB from 5th grade throughout college. Ouch, my sympathies with your sore bottom!! Ah, and teenagers...don't you remember when you were a teenager and knew everything???

Happy 18th birthday to Patrick! Hey, Sus, pretty soon you won't be having any more teenagers...they will be twenty-somethings! Dang, aren't you getting up there in years?

Lena, PLEASE do not worry about getting my February kit out! Whenever is just fine. With my being on vacation and away from home for 10 days, I haven't had time to do anything with my kits anyway. I sure hope you are feeling better and stronger!

Heather, I agree with Linda--the picture of Claire and donkey in your avatar is so cute!! Claire gets cuter and cuter with age! (Wish we all did!)

Jo, where did I miss that your old house sold? Congratulations! What a relief to not have to worry about 2 mortgages!

Tracie, I had to giggle at your comment about the stamp scrubber, when you said that you are sometimes too lazy to pull the scrubber out and just use water or baby wipes...I do the same thing!!!

My visit here will need to be short....babies need meds and feeding...

Wishing you all a warm, sunny Sunday free of snow shoveling!

How awesome that you didn't spill wine on the carpet Susanne! lol!! You are so much fun and tell such great stories. I hope Patrick has a great day and loves his gifts.

Angela, so sorry for the kitchen problems. We have a 13 yr. old granddaughter who sometimes get a little attitude so know what it is like with that age. Ivy is very adult about a lot of things but sometimes the child pops through. Good luck with the 6 doz. cupcakes.

Patti, looking forward to your image. I know it will be great. I hope your day is great when you get off work.

Lena, don't worry about us, just take care of yourself. You are in my prayers.

Tracie, can't wait to see your card.

Vickie, good afternoon to you. Hope all of you have had a great day.

Well we woke up to NO SNOW! HUH? Actually I woke up against my will at 5:30am because Muddy must have been having a doggie dream--he does this thing...stands on my side of the bed and wacks his tail next to the bed--no cute sweet puppy kisses...more like "hey, get up" wack-a-mole! So out I go with him, flip the coffee pot switch and as he is all set and I am sipping coffee--my eyes are starting to fall back asleep! Tom got up and I said, no snow until later...off to take a lil' power nap!

When I got up at 11 or so--snow was abound--huge flakes...the grocery store was empty (lovin' this part)...we celebrated Patrick's pre-birthday and he got some goodies! Then, as soon as we were done with singin' HB to him..he took off to baseball and Tom drove Shane back to school!

I saw that comment Patti--Yes, I can no longer say I have "children under the age of 18" but they'll always be my babies! I made Patrick gimme a hug today--I felt so petite...he's like 6.3 and his shoulders are as wide-- the front of an old Buick bumper! Yeesh!

Angela--no matter how much you do for your darlin' chickies...they push the limit is all I have to say--better luck tomorrow--how long do you have the "Cupcake" event going for? Dare I ask if you ship to Boston?

Oh Joanna! I can identify! And, it wasn't even bad weather! I drove over a trashcan lid after the trash was picked up, the lids end up helter skelter either in the yard or on the driveway; I really thought I was missing it, but crunch, crunch! Too late to back up after the first crunch? Nope, I did backup only to hear crunch again! Damage already done, so pulled forward...more crunching. Into the garage I go! DH likes things to coordinate...went and bought 3 new trash cans and got rid of the cans that I crunched one lid so they all had to go! LOL

Too late to say good morning, so good afternoon everyone!

Susanne, I just realized I said I was going to post a picture of the cardkit from you and I've not done that yet! BUT, I did get a picture of the pretty wrapping right after I posted that it was received! (will take a pic of content today!!)

Thank you Imke today hasn't been good for me. I woke up and after a cup of coffee I was ready to go back to bed.

I have an appointment tomorrow with an oncologist so I'll share more with you after that appointment. Sorry I have kept everyone in the dark but hopefully I'll know more tomorrow.

Yes!!!! My DIL mailed Patti's package for me today!

Susanne, thank you so much for everything and the great description you included in that sweet mitten card! I won't be able to take a picture until late tomorrow or Thursday morning (depending on what time we get home tomorrow).

BUT, I can sure let you all know what was in all those wrappings so you'll know more about the picture when you see it! Here goes!

Yummy Ghirardelli caramel chocolates (for crafting energy per Susanne!)
Susanne is re-aquainting me with stencils and paste and metallic powder to sprinkle on the paste and a stencil brush! Love that stencil and thanks for including the directions (I'm going to a stamp show March 2-3 and the company that sells Dreamweaver stencils will be there and I'll get to see a demo refresher!)
A square envelope template to fit 5, 5 1/2, and 6 inch cards!
A beautiful 6x6 paper pack
Package of window cards
Gorgeous beads for the letter openers I make...guess what? I'm going to use these beads to make one for me! WooHoo!
2 rolls of ribbon, green brads, and some beautiful white flowers in a tin.

Now I have to ask about the adorable card you sent...I LOVE the felt mittens...is it a die? If so, which company?!! They are soooo cute the way you have them embellished!

Thank you again!
Here are the pictures of the goodies I received from Susanne! Thanks again! Just had to also take a picture of the mailing envelope!

gosh, I gotta share! I got a phone call from my youngest DD yesterday that she went to the doctor on Friday; I'm going to be a grandma again! It really took me by surprise (she is 2 - 3 weeks along). She has 16 year old, a 13 year old, and an 8 year old. She is 39! I didn't jump for joy at first, but the more I think about it and pray that she and baby remain healthy I'm getting kinda excited!

Awe Vickie--glad you like you goodies...make us a stencil card--wanna see what it looks like!

I was going to send the image on the envy to my lil UK/USA swap but at the last minute I picked the Penny Black "Queen of Hearts" image instead...she's funny! I didn't want to scare off the new girl with the Dyllusions image and the 'choice of heads' to use! haha (Just typing that sounds absolutely ridiculous to me!)

Speaking of funny--if anyone wants to laugh--my FB page has the Taylor Smith song--go click on it...someone put exerpts of a screaming goat in segments of her song--God I laughed my rear off every time I click on it!

Lena--we're all with you in spirit {{{{{hugs}}}}

Well, good thing we celebrated Patrick's big day yesterday--he no sooner popped in from school and was out to a hockey game! Poof..gone...Tom's working late and K's out...so I guess dinner at 8pm? Monday's are our pasta night--so unscrew a jaaar'd sauce over manicotti, sprinkle a lil' mozzi chez on top..back 1/2 hour and serve up with garlic bread! Easy peasy! {Alternative: if someone doesn't like this, they boil their own pasta or ravioli} Oh..fyi good tasting marinara sauce is the Vineyard flavor of Bertolli--yummy w/o meat--we all like this quick sauce w/o adding meat to it!

I have all things 1/2 done today--ran out of coffee, ink jet yellow ink (so my printer refused to print, dog food, so it was one of those days that I had to hustle to the store before Muddy expected his dinner! Got home and realized..oopsy..forgot the laundry detergent--oh well, no laundry duty for me tonight! Back to the store tomorrow!

Have a good one everyone! Where's Lynn bin? You okay out there Lynn?

Oh Susanne you are sooo funny. Glad you survived Patrick's big day.

We are getting ready for yet another snow storm. Not sure if Linda is getting is yet but first time ever, I was told to stay home from work. I am a non-essential staff member. Finally it is paying off. HA! I do have to say kudos to all those nurse though that make it to work no matter what.

Guess I will have time to work on some card kits I need to put together. Always something to do.

Lena, keeping you in my thoughts, please keep us posted when you can. {{{HUGS}}}

Vickie, congrats, that is awesome news! I'm so excited for your family. A girlfriend of mine just had her first and she is 42, and all went well. Crossing fingers for your DD and baby, that things will go very smoothly.

Yea for Tracie, a day off is great.

Glad Patrick had a good birthday Susanne. Made me laugh about the laundry detergent, I think I'm going to "forget" it on purpose next time, to give myself a little break. I'm on my 4th load today, got to rope my dh into a "folding party" tonight, he'll be thrilled.

This might be a crazy question, but does anyone like Burger King? Someone gave the kids some gift cards, but we don't eat fast food. I'll send them to someone who wants them. I just don't want to throw them out.

Heather, did Claire have a good birthday? That photo in your avatar is too cute.

Susanne, I plan to visit the booth that sells the dreamweaver brass stencils and product this weekend; I need to watch the technique step by step, then I'll dive in! And, you have probably started me on a new venture...so I'll be coming home with more of the stencils and things!! You are such a good enabler!

Kathleen, thank you for the good thoughts for my DD and baby-to-be! The daddy is very happy 'cause this is his first! he is soooo good with her kids and treats them as his own.

Vickie, congrats, that is awesome news! I'm so excited for your family. A girlfriend of mine just had her first and she is 42, and all went well. Crossing fingers for your DD and baby, that things will go very smoothly.

Yea for Tracie, a day off is great.

Glad Patrick had a good birthday Susanne. Made me laugh about the laundry detergent, I think I'm going to "forget" it on purpose next time, to give myself a little break. I'm on my 4th load today, got to rope my dh into a "folding party" tonight, he'll be thrilled.

This might be a crazy question, but does anyone like Burger King? Someone gave the kids some gift cards, but we don't eat fast food. I'll send them to someone who wants them. I just don't want to throw them out.

Heather, did Claire have a good birthday? That photo in your avatar is too cute.


Kathleen if no one else what the gift cards I would love them. My spoiled grandchildren like to get cards from Granny and I try to add things inside they would like.

Thank you ladies for all your thoughts and prayers. This is so different from when I had Breast Cancer. I was able to keep up my strength and work too. Now I'm lucky if I can walk through the house. It's hard to get enough protein down for energy but I keep trying!
I have not told the Swap thread yet just not sure what to say. I was diagnosed with esophagus cancer 1/3 of my esophagus is affected. The pain started in Oct and has gotten worse through the last couple of months. I have one enlarged lymph node in my chest but everything else looked clear! So hoping tomorrow I'll find out what can be done.

Vickie: That is FANTASTIC about your new grandbaby to be! 39 isn't that old to be having a baby. I had TJ when I was 38. And other than being a bit disgruntled about being termed an "elderly gravida" or being a "geriatric pregnancy," all turned out well. What do you have so far? Girls or boys? What does your daughter want? Ken and I talked about having another one a few years ago. I wasn't able to in the end but one of the biggest discussions we had was how we would go from "get your coat and get in the car" parents to starting back to the beginning!!

Vickie, congratulations on the new baby! Your daughter is in my prayers and I think your SIL sounds like a great guy. Is this the one in Texas?

Tracie, they are saying the snow will start around midnight tonight and we should have 8-12 inches. We haven't had much up until now so hope we get the foot and then warms up and melts it away. Happy for you to get the day off.

Hoping we all have power tomorrow.
