Susanne - How did your class go?

Joanna - Enjoy your vacation or staycation which ever you decide. I am so tired of snow. BTW - have you read the books by James Dashner? Starts with with Maze Runner. I am on book 2 "The Scorch Trials" and I am really enjoying them. A little different of what I normally read butI am enjoying them. Can't get anything else done.

I just finished the first one ... is The Scorch Trials any good? My niece recommended several books during her last visit. They were all sorta post-appocolyptic in nature (No Safety in Numbers, Divergent and The Maze Runner) but they were all VERY good -- I highly recommend them (especially Divergent). And I just read that Divergent is going to be made into a movie and that A Discovery of Witches had the movie rights purchased. I can't WAIT to see those two as movies.

Today is Caleb's actual birthday. I'm mopy, missing my mom since she was ALWAYS here on his day. I should probably get a grip and go clean something.

So sorry you are having a rough day Joanna! DON'T go and clean, that won't make you feel any better. Sit and have some tea (or wine), relax, read, craft. Do something for you! Hope Caleb has a good day today.

Angela, sorry work wasn't good over the weekend. Wow, more orders for cupcakes! Ivy's been busy with her business, that's fantastic.

Joanna I hope you took Kathy's advice and had a nice day. The kids here are on spring break too but with the snow showers they aren't spending anytime outdoors...with one exception...my grandaughter Tricia is on the softball team at school and they have had two games. I didn't go but my daughter said it was like watching a football game. Everyone had blankets and hot chocolate. Hurry up spring!!!

Oh I am reading the newest(I think) Jack Reacher novel...he's a hero!! Can't imagine Tom Cruise playing the part.

Pat, I love Jack Reacher novels, some are better than others but good reads. I can't wait until the third novel that finishes up Discovery of witches. I love that book. I am on book four of the Outlander series.

Angela, so sorry you are having such a hard time at work. Thinking of you and praying for you.

Joanna, I agree with Kathy and Pat about your day! Hope you had a good day, thinking and praying for you. Hope you have a better day tomorrow.

I have to go do my commenting on blogs. I've been gone all day and evening and am way behind on everything so have to go get some of that done and read my mail.

Thanks Tracie, copying these titles down to give them a try later.

Copying these down to. I have to always have extra books downloaded so I know there is always something new to read. Thanks for sharing.

Pat, I'm so sorry that your March package will be late. I thought I had ALLL this time...guess the days went by faster than I thought! And then, the package has been finished and packed up for a week now and I kept forgetting to go to the post office. It was sent today, so hopefully it gets there speedy quick!

Here are the two cards we worked on in my class--I prepped the 'hard stuff' for my ladies since it hogs way too much time to make a rosette and get the doodads out of the doily die (even with waxed paper) for the next run-through in my Grand Calibur...We had fun, we decided that 2 hours is just too short of time. I sent each of them home with my "mitten card kit" and we're meeting again in April! Our next class is going to be 1 card and then they can crop, stamp, zip dies and punch punches! For an easy snack, I served a fruit platter and chips and salsa so we didn't break for lunch!

Funny: you all know I am not a fan of the color brown--seriously, I have (like) maybe 6 sheets of various brown CS left over from autumn in my stash--and here I am looking for brown buttons for my polka dot card at midnight the night before class!!! I found 2 sheets that matched the polka dot paper--we punched the button from the Martha Stewart punch to improvise for a brown button!

The thing to remember about my classes is there is really no time to color anything--so all my projects have to be punched or die cuts--Oh, and I tried the paper bow at the top of the Doily card--but it just looked better with the Papertreyinc ribbon!

Next Class--I think I am going to scare the bajeebs out of them and make a napkin fold card!!! hahaha Omgosh these are so much fun--I made 3 of them yesterday--talk about major decorating--it's like the card is the size of a living room! 12x12 folds!

Mr. or Mrs. 'chubby' Robin is seeing its own reflection and flying from the tall branches of our tree out front to up over my front door windows and pecking--Spring is in the air--I have to put some paper up there today--I don't want it to get hurt--Its usually at our back door--I will try and get a photo--chubby lil' creature!

Have a great day everyone!

{{{{QueenieJO}}}} I still miss my mom too. Sometimes if I get into a crunch or a bad day-I'll 'talk to her in my head'...it seems to help! There is no greater connection between a mother and child. I posted this really cool thing on my FB page I nabbed from someone else (totally forgetting the name of it) about being a Mother...very sweet--I'll go see what it's called and see if I can bring the link here...too. Happy Birthday Caleb!

Morning friends!

Awww, Joanna, thinking of you and hoping today is a better day. I'm envious, too, that you have such a strong bond with your mother.

Susanne, your cards are amazing! I've got my bag packed for your next class....

How are you doing, Heather and Lynne? Still knee deep in snow?

Tracie, I am with Heather...where did March go? Putting the finishing touches on your package...it should go out today!

They had Iron Man Volleyball at school last night, which was a tournament for the guys. Seems they have showed up to play in "spandex" before and were warned that it had better not happen. For those who may not know what "spandex" refers to (I didn't before Ivy played volleyball)...it's the tiny little spandex shorts the girls wear...key word being tiny...there are swimsuits that cover more. Ewww...I don't care to see a guy in those! Will have to get the details today after school, she had homework last night when she came home.

OO had a webinar last night for designers...I was able to tune in, listen, and see the slides...yay, so glad I was able to get that to work! They would not show us the new pieces coming out, but the hostess had seen it all and said it was great. What is new and AMAZING though, are the hostess benefits...talk about lots of freebies! Presently, it is up to the designers to provide the hostess benefits, not the company. Can't wait for April 16 when the new program starts and they reveal it all!

Hope everybody has a super day!

No problem Heather...hard to believe we are one week away from April. I'm always happy to see spring. Of course this year we have snow on the daffodils.

Susanne your cards are beautiful!!

Susanne, your cards are gorgeous!

Pat, love your card I saw in the gallery today with the coffee pot. Gorgeous card.

Need some suggestions for dinner tonight! I have two blah chicken breasts defrosting and need to "flavor them up" for a tasty dinner...any suggestions??!!

Hope everyone has a terrific Tuesday!

Dinner is over! I fixed oven fried chicken breasts; I did it differently than I usually do. I coated the chicken in sour cream and then dredged in cornflake crumbs and baked; kinda tasty and the crumbs didn't fall off! (I usually coat chicken in skim milk before dredging; no wonder it has no taste!)

going to try to make a pulley card for a you can do it challenge. We'll see. LOL

Oppps I wasn't posta tell ya the unhealthy part!!!hahaha Well, a gals gotta have a lil' fun if she ain't cookin'! If I am ever granted a last meal--fried mozzarella sticks with marinara sauce=heaven!

Where did March go? I spent the first week on a high wire to get my sister's bday gifts to her on time (or I'd still be hearing about it)...focus, focus,focus on Tracie!

See you all tomorrow-I am pooped!

Susanne- Thanks, iīm fine and my cold is as good as gone. Your cards are very beautiful. I believe you, that is not enough time to color in a class. But even with punched parts can make beautiful cards. We see it in yours.

Yesterday i was able to join the ZUMBA class. Yeah !! Last week I had to cancel because of the cold

Angela- I'm glad that I no longer play volleyball. I do not have the figure for this tight panties

Jo- Hope Caleb had a great birthday and your day was also good !! Except my grandparents I have not lost a family member but I can imagine that it's hard on special days.

Only one more day to work tomorrow and then long Easter weekend. Friday and Monday is a holiday here. That means back to work until Tuesday. YEAH !!

Imke, I was thinking of stamping and mailing some cute "people" or "things" my class could color at home and bring to class--but I don't know if they'd be up for 'homework'! Maybe I could try 1 image--all the same like we do across the hall and see how it goes?

No SCS inkling in my mailbox today (looking at calendar) it's Wednesday right? Maybe it has not loaded yet?

Wow, 2 months from today I'll be "35" hahahaha! Have a great hump day everyone!

Susanne, I didn't have the weeklyinkling in my email today either, but it is posted on the home page, how to create a rosebud. (since your post is at the top of this page, that's as far as I've gotten in reading!)

Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday (coffee is done so going to grab a cup or two before I fix breakfast)

Susanne, I coated the boneless, skinless chicken breasts with the sour cream, a good thick coating, and then dredged (covered both sides) in the cornflake crumbs; no mixing of sour cream and crumbs. I did throw in a dash or two of seasoned salt to the crumbs before dredging.

Vickie - Never heard of dipping it in sour cream. I have tried buttermilk and it worked well. One of my co-workers then dips hers in crushed cheesits. Haven't tried it yet but sure sounds good.

Susanne - I loved your cards that you made for class. I may use one of your ideas for my class here.

Working on my April kits. Just putting finishing touches on them and should go out in the mail this week or next. Had fun putting them together. My problem is starting too early and I keep adding to the package. I will have to start to learn to limit myself for the next round. LOL!

Off work today so I am going to meet my sister at LSS for lunch. They are having a 25% off everything this week. I'm sure I can find something that I must have.

Tracie--my biggest challenge is the NO TIME FOR COLORING ZONE...so it is so handy to create with dies and punches...and change up the style of the card itself--feel free print off my notes--I am so proud of myself for making a mental list--I think the Easter stamp was from Dots design--but it also looks kinda "Whipper Snapper Designs" too..had it for awhile...that's what happens..the labels wear off after uses and washing!

Beautiful card, Heather and the bow looks fabulous. This is the Lil Inkers, right ? Canīt wait to get mine.

I ordered one and Susanne was kind enough to forward it to me. That saves a lot of postage.

I don't know if I told everyone that I was babysitting Jasper while his Momma went back to work. So far it has been part time which is a good thing. LOL! I have forgotten what its like to have an active 12 month old, a very independent one at that. She is working with mentally challenged clients who live in their own homes but have to have someone with them. She is not an IHHS worker it is through a private company an when they found out how much experience she had working with not just dementia an alzh, but also working in a psch facility they hired her as fast as they could get all the necessary paper work an background check done. She has 10 years working with the elderly an also mentally challenged. She loves it an im glad, she is a very compassionate person an I should know I was one of her supervisors for most of those 10 years.

He is actually pretty good an since the house is mostly baby proof yet he still finds things to get into. He really likes to get into to trash know, we separate it and he mostly gets into the burnable stuff. This evening I was watching Armywives on the computer an had headphones on an didn't realize Nickie had taken the phone out to the front porch to talk to her ex about plans with her older boys for this weekend and Gregg had fell asleep just 5 feet away in his recliner when I smell pepper very very strong, I turn around an he is sitting behind me with the schllings course black pepper full bottle dumped on the carpet just swirling his fingers in it. I am so thankful that he didn't get it in his eyes, the other scary part he climbed up on the step ladder I use in the kitchen, (still not sure how he did it) to get it. Kitchen right behind me. So, I had to wake his papa up to hold his hands away from his face so his mom could come wash him up while I cleaned up the mess. Hmm, 3 person job that one little. Guy!!!!!

Heather, so glad you like it! That card is awesome, so bright and fun! Imke, hope yours arrives soon!

Susanne, I agree, with a 2 hour class, forget coloring. I remember when I was a SU demo, we used to have a card night with 10 tables (each demo had 2) and people would make 10 cards in three hours. Forget it if anyone had a complicated design or coloring, lol. One night we were there for 6 hours, I was falling asleep standing up! I LOVE the cards you did with your class, so elegant. So funny that you don't like brown, but really made it work so well! How is K doing? Did she like your card and note? Keeping you all in my thoughts, she's lucky to have such a great and caring mom!

Vickie, that chicken sounds delicious! Going to try it for sure.

Denise, so funny about Jasper getting into everything. Glad the pepper didn't get into his eyes. He's quite the handful isn't he? So adorable though!

Patti, hope things are going OK for your mom and dad and that you can find the help your mom needs.

Liam's been sick this week, so we haven't done much over spring break.Cal's had lots of sports practice. I think I may have frostbite on my toes from last night, well maybe not that bad, but they were numb for a few hours after practice.

Hope you are all doing well this week!

Donīt worry. At the moment, the mail takes a long time again. No idea why Lindaīs package is still on its way.

I remember when Linda sent me Deniseīs stuff it only takes 4 days !! From Friday to Tuesday ! It goes when its wants

I think maybe in the next week because tomorrow and Monday we have a holida here in Germany. On these days, there is no post anyway.

Kathy- I hope Liam recover soon. Itīs a pity to have spring break and to be sick.
With the frostbite I totally understand. I always have cold hands and feet, which is not normal. My toes are sometimes very blue It really is not normal. My dermatologist once said: My feets are eventually become really cold (with frostbite) and then you get it again and again. I have to live with it, but it's uncomfortable. That's why I love the summer! Then I do not have cold hands and feet !

Speaking about it.....itīs snowing again today ***ggggrrrrrhhhhh !!!!!

Denise- Jasper keeps you on your toes, eh? But I think it's still good then you have a mission and it is not boring

Good Morning everyone!

Kathy, hope Liam is feeling better. It is a shame he was sick over Spring break. I can see how your feet would freeze, sitting out in this crazy weather to watch baseball would do it.

Imke, when did you get frostbite? I didn't realize that once having it happen you would get cold easy from then on. It must be miserable at times.

I think we are all wishing for warm weather. It was 63 here yesterday and beautiful. I hope the sun shines again today and we are supposed to have another warm day. Saturday it is supposed to be 68 with a chance of rain. Of course that is the day we are all getting together and having an Easter Egg hunt so I am hoping for no rain even though we need it.

Heather, your card is really cute. I've used mine a few times and really like it since you can make the bow match your card papers.

I am waiting for my envelope maker. I wonder when the pre-orders will go out.

Heather, great card...love the bright colors!

Imke, I have cold hands and feet too...I'm with you, I can't wait for summer!

Vickie, your chicken sounds good. You can also coat chicken with a mixture of salsa and mayo and then bake it...very good flavor.

Made some yummy veggies...fresh broccoli and strips of red pepper steamed and seasoned with garlic, dill and sea salt. So good...no butter or olive oil or anything! Has anyone tried the Tastefully Simple spices and seasonings? That's where the garlic/dill seasoning came from...I love them!

Kathleen, hope Liam gets to feeling better. Davis has had a cold and now feels like he has a temp. tonight.

Speaking of SU! classes.... One time my friend Sue was holding a class...like Kathleen mentioned, a table for each card. We used Pearl Ex powder on one of the cards and there were some newbies there who didn't have a clue or follow directions; anyway, you should have seen the haze in the air! Oh my word! We laughed about that one for a long time...we said our lungs were still probably iridescent! LOL

Denise, Jasper sounds like a handful...and a dare devil! It keeps you young, right?!

I can not remember that I had once had such cold feet. It must be years ago. But at some point I noticed that my toes in the fall / winter are really red and sometimes blue ! Then I went to the doctor and he told me that there are frostbite. I have no blisters or bumps, which is the worst form. But thatīs enough for me. He also said if you have had it once, it comes again and again. And it's true, for years it begins in the fall when it gets colder and does not stop until the spring to when it gets warmer.

And at my hands itīs similar. Even in the thickest gloves I have cold hands.

Everyone has their problems and I'm only 38 ! Just what I do when I'm 60 Hahaha !

From which company is the envelope maker ? I have the MS scoring board and with this i can also make envelopes. But rarely do it.
