On the scrapbook prep side of things: I decided that I am using all 16 of my sizzlits alphabets in this scrapbook (and my other sizzix alphabets). Some I actually had to open to use (I have had them for years!!!). It feels so good to be able to say I have actually used them all. But now I want more!!!!!!!! I just saw one at Michaels that I have been putting off getting. They are $199 here in Canada. I usually wait until I am in the States but with our $ right now, I think I will get it with my 50% off coupon. I thought that by using them I wouldn't feel the need for more but it didn't work!!

Took a look at the blog, Jen - what a beautiful family they are. So sad.

We're having pork chops here, but I haven't decided what I'm doing with them yet. Better get on that, huh?

Chicken noodle soup and fresh bread from the bread maker.

I got all the cricut stuff cut for my calendars and all the big pieces done too. Just have to cut out Christmas trees and the ribbon and magnets now. Hope I have enough ribbon and don't have to go back to the store.

Jen- What a lovely family and lots of great tributes. Jim and his family will continue to be in my prayers.

Ellie- Cute project. Good luck to you!

All my love to the rest of you!

Anyone remember who made the stand up/table top decoration that had dangling ornaments in the square holes from the country living set? I thought it was Patty B, but I couldn't find it on her blog. It isn't Tami Waddell's (which is posted on the demo side) which was posted this morning--I first saw it a week or two ago. Please? I talked about it and now can't find it.

Kathy - your dd is gorgeous! The outdoor one is my favorite, too!

Ellie- You did a great job on the challenge. Good luck! that is such a good idea too!

*Amy- I don't think I could do those injections!

Jen - thanks for the link for the blog for Jim and his family. I found myself looking through the pictures and seeing how happy he is and it just made my heart break even more for him and his family. They will all continue to be in my prayers.

Liz - I hope you have a safe trip home!

Well I didn't accomplish as much as I wanted today. I did get my craft area cleaned up, which is a big accomplishment. I did work on my sister's christmas gift. Now I need to make a grocery list so I can go to the store in the morning.

Evening everyone! Had my technique class tonight - lots of fun. The group that come to those is so fun and it's so much better to teach when they keep asking questions and getting excited with the answers! Even picked up an order even though I gave my downline a big order tonight too. She misunderstood how the hostess benefits worked and put more merchandise on it then she was allowed thinking it would count towards her quarterly total. So she went into pending and then had to place an order to get her out - decided that i could help her hit this quarter since she's really excited by SU! but works as much as I do and has 2 customers! Anyhow....

We had ramen for dinner - not really worth mentioning but since people showed up early for class, that's all I had time to make and eat!

Why is it always so late when I finally make it back here?

Thanks for all your kind words for my DD. It's so great to have a place to share. I love y'all so much!

Guess what? I did get to exercise again today. I did it first thing - before the kids attacked me with their 'wants' list. I don't know why, but wanting to report here that I did it is giving me great motivation. (Thanks to Crissy who got me started!) I can already tell a difference physically and mentally.

Tomorrow is the day to get my 'elfette' gifts done. This is so fun!

Rhonda, aren't we glad to have Amy on our team!!!!!

Stacy, sounds like your class was a hit! You are a good person for helping out your DL.

We had Sonic burgers tonight 'cause I got home late from teaching piano lessons. Blech!

Morning.

Rhonda, Amy and Lisa- I love that photo display. I saved the pdf so I can get around to it one of these days, but I have a lot of those projects. I did sell one of the kits, but mine is still in the case it came in.

Kathy- Good for you for exercising. I really should get my Wii fit out again, but then it makes fun of you for taking so much time off.

Stacy- Love it when a class goes well.

Crissy- I am jealous that your craft area is clean. One of these days. . .

My goal for today: Finish my calendar kits (I have to go get more ribbon from Roberts) and make a prototype for my announcements and get them all cut.

Great job with the exercising Kathy! I'm going to Elfette today too....(I also have club make up at 3 this afternoon, one project left to cut for a class next week and a stamp a stack tonight, but )

The Limited Supply Challenge is a total bust this morning.....acrylic stamps only...blech!

Congrats Stacy! (and Crissy too....on the cleaned up space!)

Good luck with the announcements today Paula!

I better run....off to Target before I take the little ham to the school for teacher Thanksgiving.

Hello all!
No time to exercise, yet - I'm watching my friend's 2 year old. Busy!

I've got her occupied with toys for a minute so I can hop on my laptop.

I can't believe I missed Jackie's holiday display. Awesome!

And today is Friday. That means my DH will be home in 3 days! Since my DD's baby was born, I think we've only seen each other a total of 5 or 6 days. I'd kinda like to have him back in my life!

My boots came!!! My boots came!!!

They look awesome and fit great, though I will have to practice walking around in those heels! LOL! I can't take a picture yet, because I have to shave my legs first.

OK, so I sketched something out on paper, using a sketch challenge to help me, so let's hope it translates into a real card!

Sheesh, I feel like I just ran a marathon (which for me is running up the stairs with the laundry basket ) catching up here. I missed all of yesterday and up until now today! Too, too much to comment on everything, but kudos, cool, hugs, wow and me too, I wish and whatever else applies

I worked a whole hour and a half yesterday, then went to WalMart for stuff, took DH to lunch, then went to Mall of America to avoid traffic enroute to my upline meeting last night. So, since my work day was so short I had 4 hours to wander the mall. I went to Ikea - right next to MOA for an hour and only bought candy (not on the diet, but good for Christmas treat bags for my next class). I went into Aldo - so tempting, but I was a good girl and did not spend any money while at the mall yesterday! Upline meeting was fun - 3 giftable projects.

Ladies,

I know why God had me get divorced. I have a friend in crisis. Verbal abuse, she's afraid of physical abuse, and she has called on me for support. I am the only friend who knows. She mentioned a couple of weeks ago she was thinking about divorce - I told her to do some good thinking and talk to her family, as I was the only one she had shared with. She has now shared it with her sister and father and is calling attorneys, as we speak. All the money is gone. I am heading over there after grabbing some crafts, as tonight is crafting night (her husband is "away" who knows where). Please pray for my friend's safety!

So I am supposed to be using my day off to prep for my scrap retreat weekend (next weekend) and I have managed to shot a gopher, catalog our DVD library, finish laundry and clean the toilet. Oh and post 4 items to craidslist for sale. No progress in here and it really needs it - I can get to the chair, but it looks like a tornado ran through here. I still have to finish up 5 more elfette gifties too.
Going to GF tonight for wine and chocolate after her tots are off to bed - about 8ish.
Tomorrow DH wants to spend time with me - talking about the new 007 movie and dinner. And shopping for new pillows (really needed).
Sunday - pray for me! We are going to friends son's b-day party and we are rollerskating! I have not rollerskated since high school (and that was 20+ years ago!).

Off now to get out of my jammies, did I mention I am still in my jammies!?! then to the grocery for milk and something for dinner. DH is on his way home from work too. He decided he was going to start going in early all of a sudden and was out of the house by 6 this morning.

jen, I will be praying your words are wise and what is needed in this situation. Above anything else, her safety is first and foremost important! Not knowing all the information - be sure she has a place to go at a moments notice and that she will not hesitate to call 911! {hugs}

Yes, we are working out a plan before everyone else arrives. She's not sure if she's ready to share yet. I am still on the computer doing the research for her, as her husband is very controlling and checks the computer, etc. and who knows what spyware he has on there. I'm going to slip her some cash tonight too. She is reluctant to go to a shelter, but I told her she can always drop the kids here and then go, if needed. She just needs options. I need to make sure she knows what to do in each situation. I'm lucky I did not have abuse to deal with. Now, I'm wondering if she's been honest about no physical abuse. I bet not.

On another note, I'm sorry my life has been so full of drama lately! It's not usually like this. I am thankful to have such wonderful friends who can listen like you gals. It is so therapeutic. You don't know how much you all mean to me!

I'm going to slip her some cash tonight too. She is reluctant to go to a shelter, but I told her she can always drop the kids here and then go, if needed. She just needs options. I need to make sure she knows what to do in each situation. I'm lucky I did not have abuse to deal with. Now, I'm wondering if she's been honest about no physical abuse. I bet not.

On another note, I'm sorry my life has been so full of drama lately! It's not usually like this. I am thankful to have such wonderful friends who can listen like you gals. It is so therapeutic. You don't know how much you all mean to me!
This would be my guess, that is why I said what I did.

Jen, your friend is very blessed to have you in her life right now. I'm praying that she'll have the strength to do what she needs to do.

I just got off the phone with a wonderful woman at the state domestic violence hotline. She gave me some advice about what to do for my friend and I have 3 phone numbers to program into her cell tonight. I am going to make my friend put together an emergency kit while I am there.
I knew there was a reason I gave the STBX an extra weekend. Thank goodness I'm free to go and help.

I'm surprised she is still wanting to host crafting night, but I have the feeling she'll get comfortable enough to share with the others as we are close friends. Also, it will take her mind off of it for a bit, I'm sure.
OK, going to pack up stuff....talk to you all in the a.m.
Thank you for the blessings, prayers, good wishes.

Jen- One of my BFF's has been going through a similar situation to your friend this year. I am guessing if she has shared that much that there has been physical abuse too. It took my friend a long time to open up and talk about that part of it. (((hugs))) to you and to her.

So far I've gotten almost no where on my goals for today. Just made it to buy ribbon. Off now to cut Christmas trees and finish putting the kits together.
