Good morning! I think the weather here can't decide what it wants to do. I thought we were going to be in the low 70s this week but that is gone now and more rain in the forecast. I'm good with that!

This is the week that DD2 (and the rest of us) will find out what her high school classes will look like for the next bit. They haven't released any information about it yet. She was supposed to be back to school tomorrow but they are scrambling to figure out how to do school online. One of her teachers is TERRIBLE with technology so I'm curious to find out what they do and how. I jokingly said I wouldn't be surprised if she retired! (Not that she is that old, she just isn't techy.)

I got started on commenting on VSN cards last night...there are SOOOO many! We'll see how many I get to. Are there more this time because of the quarantine, or am I just imagining it? I'm pretty sure I would enjoy this staying home thing more if I didn't have to try to work from home.

Kandie, I hope crafting has helped put you in a better frame of mind. That lady sounds very annoying!

Banana bread for breakfast sounds yummy, Sharon. DD1 was standing in the kitchen this morning looking lost. When I asked her, she said she was trying to find something to eat. She didn't want cereal. I suggested what, apparently, is a California thing - avocado toast. Though I'm sure I had it when I was growing up in Oregon but whatever! She liked that idea and went for it. If only all problems were solved so easily!

Way to go, Annette, at combining your VSN cards with the alphabet challenge cards!

Yay, Kandie, for another card done!

Gracie, a make-up challenge would be hilarious! My girls have made themselves up to look like the Joker before! Quite involved. Of course, now we should make ourselves up to look like zombies and go on a walk around our neighborhoods! I saw that as a suggestion somewhere.

And, on that note, I saw this funny yesterday. When I sent it to both of my girls, DD2 texted back and said, "I beg to differ!" She is a hard core MacGyver fan!

Gracie, would that be the Ikea version of TP?! lol

Kathy, the first time we took a cruise it was a seven day cruise to Alaska. Our agreement was that we would always take the stairs but DD1 was a toddler on that trip (it was a family reunion for my DH's family) and, at some point, she wanted to take the elevator. That was when we discovered that they changed the carpet in each elevator daily because it had the day of the week in the carpet! Made us chuckle, but we could understand why they did it!

I only did the days and not numbers because I can go check the calendar if I need to know more than what day it was. Wish I could get those rugs! DH says its my job to change the days since I got to bed last.

My friend dropped by but didn't come in. Her husband is bored and wanted to borrow John Wick 3.

Seven cards done. Are there 18 or 20 challenges? Are the minis also to be done to be entered in the prize drawing?

My eyes are tired so I’m having a pretend nap time, that is, I’m closing my eyes and may or may not actually fall asleep, lol.

22 counting the minis, which, yes, are to be included for the prize drawing. This was one of the biggest VSN's, and the participation was better than normal. I think there are probably 2 reasons for that. Many people are home because of the virus, but also flowers are easy for most of us to use on our cards.

I thought the participation was bigger than usual, I attributed it to the quarantine though.

Don't worry, my DH is safe and we aren't fighting, but I just saw this funny online. It made me laugh...naughty, naughty!

I've been working on commenting on VSN cards...I think I'm going to have sore fingers by the time I'm done with Ann's!

Hi Catherine! I know, I don't know how I'll ever get through everyone's gallery. I just finished my lemon card. I have 7 left, so I need to get going!

Default Hello

Waving hello- lots of catching up for the past few days!

I have been having trouble with my neck and a nasty headache from the whiplash … I gave up and started the prednisone yesterday, and today a better day and finally finished my N card- a full session complete! First card made in 4 days : ) Felt so good!

I stopped in yesterday, and there was chatter about what are you wearing, I colored my hair yesterday, so was sitting there in a towel...lol I have been keeping jeans on at least every other day so no surprises at the end of the quarantine. I do not own too many sweatpants.

My daughter and her pup are still here, enjoying that very much. She has a vegan diet, so eats with us but not what we are eating for the most part. She also has her juicer here and juices celery everyday, and carrots, also beets. I tried some of the celery, and it made me belch all day.....so guess I won't be doing that too much! She is fun and silly, so really like having her round.

Melodie- thank you for the bit of joy in the mailbox : ) How sweet! I have entertained cleaning out my card pile/stash, just have not done it!

Goodness, I think a make-up video would be such fun! LOL

I will look into the VSN challenges tomorrow, as long as the neck and headache continue to be better!

Waving hello to all!
Shelly

Oh my goodness, Gracie, your lemon card cracked me up!

I didn't get very far on the commenting because our Monday night Bible study met tonight via Zoom so that sidetracked me. After the Bible study was over, DD2 and I went through a BIG box that has been in my closet since we moved in. I took photos of some things and they are going away after our lockdown is over. We went through several drawers of my clothing too. Stuff I should have done ages ago. DD2 is an excellent purging buddy since she is a minimalist.

Shelly, I'm sure it is wonderful to have your daughter there! Such fun to have them around, right? Especially if she is fun and silly!

Good morning, and what fun to wake up to all the funnies on here!

I believe I counted 18 regular challenges and a couple of minis. Do we do the one for children as well? . Never mind on this question. I found the master thread with all the challenges!

The lady newscaster on tv this morning has on the most lovely light blue dress with lace inserts. It immediately made me think of Easter!

Thank you for all the nice comments on my cards so far! I think I will try to work on cards in the morning and afternoon and comment in the evening. I did get started with comments and then got sidetracked by all the card ideas running through my head, lol.

Isn’t that lemon tree fun? I’m glad no one could hear me as I worked on those little quilled pieces. I had to wear magnifying glasses to see the small pieces, and kept getting glue on my fingers from gluing them closed, and then when putting them on the card they kept coming back up because they were stuck to my fingers!

My stepmom called to say my SIL in Arizona, a very talented seamstress with her own business, is making masks for the community. She fills a box with masks and puts it on the front porch and then someone comes by and picks up the box.

I found out Sunday, also through stepmom, that a lady I worked with for quite a while passed away in her sleep last Wednesday. It was quite a shock, since we both worked at a resale store where people rent booths for their wares, and DH had just stopped by three weeks ago to say hi while I was getting my nails done. She had a very bad heart. The thing that upset me the most was that I had to hear about it through stepmom who heard about it through a friend of hers who heard about it from her daughter who has a booth at the resale store. The boss, who has been my friend for ten years, never even called to let me know. It took me a few hours to get over wanting to call the friend and ask her WHY she never let me know. It was only the three of us who ran the store. She and I opened the store together in 2010. Ok, I’m done venting. Thanks for listening.

There is no service, of course, and a memorial will be held for her later.

Good morning!
Kandie, I am so sorry about your friend and how you found out. So sad.
Catherine, I need your minimalist daughter here to help me purge, although DH is pretty good. But he would get rid of everything!!
Actually, I am pretty envious of you and Shelly having your DDs with you!


Great funnies, ladies. Thanks for sharing.
Have a great day, ladies.

Good morning ladies! I am so completely disgusted with our weather this morning. We woke up to a ton of snow on the ground and I have a headache because of it. I am so ready for spring! We were supposed to be on our way to Hawaii next week so this is just depressing. Oh well, I'll just hide out in my craft room.
