Happy Valentine's Day everyone!! Son number two woke me up this morning with a Valentine's day phone call!! No stopping by with flu in the house!

Son number five woke with an upset stomach this morning and is back to sleep again. He is on the medication from the doctor for flu, $100 prescription!


All of us must stay away from the grandkids for fear of them getting the flu too! Sad, no Jack to play with for probably two weeks, which means no working for my DIL!


The other grandparents went to Florida to visit some friends! Guess what, the friends had the flu and gave it to them! So the other grandparents can not watch the kids either!!


But this is the thing, how does all this illness get all over the country? They were on the plane sick with the flu coming home!! Yikes!


Pat - creativity sparked by your demo's start up items should be celebrated!!


Dani - no going back to bed, unless you are not feeling well!! I remember you saying to me you could not wait to get out of that bed after being laid up for so long!! Any time you are not motivated just think back to last year!!

Melody, those dies are so fun!

I actually feel GOOD today so DH is taking me to Cracker Barrel for lunch. I love browsing around that place.


Off to get ready, back later.

Good morning....and Happy Valentine's Day! I have an adorable dog looking at me, her eyes asking, "Why are you typing when you could be petting me?!"

Dani - I have forgotten to take a photo of a card before giving it away. One time I asked the recipient's daughter (who is a good friend of mine) to take a photo and send it to me so I could upload it. As for motivation, sorry, I have no suggestions for you this morning. I'll get back to you...maybe!


Dani - as to your granddaughter, tell her she can be young at heart no matter how old she is. In fact, I recommend being a young at heart person rather than an old person. My mom was a young at heart person, my dad was old his entire life. Talk about mismatched!


Karen - yay, happy to read your post here. Love your finish - paper hugs and glittery smooches! DD2 would be backing away as quickly as possible at the mention of glitter!


Kathy - your two watercolor on Yupo cards are gorgeous! When I get the newsletter in my inbox, I always click through to the gallery to look for your project or projects. The tulips are my favorite.


Pat - why would you want the latest? There isn't a challenge in finding and acquiring that! =)


Pat - that is quite the family culture difference, patriarchal versus matriarchal. I'm sure it can create challenges. As for the redesigned card, I used to attend a stamp class where that happened regularly. Fortunately, that demo also didn't have a fragile ego.


Melody - you enabler, you!


Ann - do you think the prescription is causing your son's upset stomach? It is a possibility. What are your son and DIL going to do for watching the kids? That is challenging. How are you doing? Are you avoiding the flu?


I must run, I want to pop into the dollar store and get some Valentine balloons and take them to my DH's office this morning before work. Talk to you later!

Good Morning and a Happy Valentines to everyone on here!

Kandie, so happy to read you are feeling good today!


Kathy, thanks for answering my question about the blendabilies!


Dani- way to motivate yourself!


We had a little snow overnight, but will probably melt by this afternoon!


Still trying to wrap my brain around doing a card with amaranth!

Shirl, it doesn't have to be that color! Use any color that starts with the letter "A"!

Happy Valentines Day! finished a big project; I will try to post on .s.c.s later. We just got back from dinner. Pat , you won’t believe it! DH took me to East side to Angelos for dinner for Valentines Day, then to the Nifty Nut House for chocolate. Ummm food! Love Italian food! Beats Olive Garden, and we like that!

Everyone sounds like they are having a good day. Kandie, gals you are feeling better. Kathy, was your son able to eat something solid after seeing the dr? Sorry if I didn’t read far enough back. I just read this page so far. Time for my rest and Jeopardy!

Yes, I had to google that color, too! LOL.

DH brought home dinner too!! Told him no flowers or store purchased cards, just food!!

We got Noodles and Co. I had the stroggie!! DH of course hates anything mixed together so he was with you Kathy! He had KFC! But no coleslaw! Sigh!


Funny, yesterday my DH said he could not find a card for me for Valentine's day. He said the were very cheap looking and did not have the right sentiment in them. And the prices were so expensive! I told him, that's ok! It's the thought that counts and bring food instead!

I went to Dollar Tree and got three balloons for my DH and then dropped them by his office along with his Viewmaster Valentine's card. It was fun to surprise him and he was definitely happy.

Ann - what was your son thinking having a protein shake with milk in it? I hope he is feeling much better.


Dani - that is adorable! Too bad she didn't show more details or give a link to a tutorial.


Shirl - you could always use Always Artichoke as your A color...or there is amethyst, amber, etc.


Sharon - Happy Valentine's Day! Angelos sounds like a lovely place to eat. Your Bible study gifts look lovely! It was too funny that you abbreviated Bible study to BS. Our Monday night Bible study group sometimes does that too, which always cracks me up because a lot of nonsense happens on Monday night too! grin


Linda - the Valentine's card you uploaded is lovely. When is your mom's surgery?


Kathy - well, they ARE fruit...just under a chocolate layer.


My DH hasn't made it home yet. My DDs are at school at the first dress rehearsal for the play. DH did a computer presentation to the Freshman Class today and he was up until 1 am preparing his presentation. He hadn't procrastinated, he has been busy working on set building for the play. I think I hear him. He told me on the phone that he has dinner planned, he is taking care of it. I feel badly since he was up so late though!

Ann...hope you all get better soon! Love your new challenges!

Walking Dead...I've been avoiding it like the plague. I'm catching up on last season of Zoo...hybrids running around killing everyone...evil corporation abducting children...no one can get pregnant because of animal activist group last season...except at least one young lady who escaped inhaling the airborne agent! LOL


Still catching up on summer season...finished Outlander...then I have Last Ship, but I am keeping up on current Bachelor and watched Dancing with the Stars while it was curreent. All I can say...good thing I have a DVR!

I looked up amaranth on Google and it said it was a plant with raspberry flowers. Then I looked up amaranth color, and it looks like Stampin' Up's Rose Red or possibly Strawberry Slush (retired)...what say you Ann?

For us, it was Ash Wednesday...a day of fast and abstinence from meat day...so we revamped our plan to include church and a quick dinner after since restaurants are so busy. We stopped at Safeway and got a frozen bag dinner (2 of them, actually) ...Bertolini's Lobster Ravioli in cream sauce...it had red peppers in the sauce with mushrooms and spinach, lobster, and cheese in the raviolis. It was really good...had so much sauce that we added some cooked BowTie noodle and our favorite spice...Broussards. Long story about that one...we buy it on line now...it's kind of a cajun spice on the mild side...great with almost anything in place of salt. Then we bought a Mediterranean salad kit bag with cranraisins and pumpkin seeds...we added a bit more cranraisins...it had a Poppy Seed dressing...thought a bottle of wine would go well...so threw that in. All in all, it was a great quick dinner!

Carlene, what a dinner! Perfect and quick!

My grandma would call our weather this morning soupy. Real dense fog. It rained all night and now it’s a mess outside. Lots of travel warnings.

Well, DSGD (DH’s GD) age 7 called and thanked me for her bookmark and resin nature necklace. She is so funny. She said “how did you get stuff from the yard in a necklace?!” and “I think I’ll use my bookmark tonight!”

DD2 and DGD age 12 called to say they received their resin keychains and weren’t sure what they’d do with them. That kind of a thank you is questionable.

DD1 hasn’t called yet. I’m anxious to see how she liked hers.

Anyone else take time to make gifts and then get kind of a ho-hum response?

We had a nice day. A real nice lunch, then DH said are you wanting to stop at HL, which I never mentioned. He sat in the car and read the auto instructions book while I browsed. I found nothing I wanted, but he told me what a lot of gadgets do in the car when I came out, lol. Then to the library to check out some books, and on home for me to read and him to nap.

Linda, I continue to keep your mom in prayer.

Ann, are your sons feeling better today? Has anyone else gotten sick?

G'mornin Crew!!! Well I already cleaned my bathroom next is my bedroom. That's not so bad...dusting mostly. I have to figure out how to keep the "Elmr" hair off my dresser. That dogs sheds worse than any dog I've ever seen. And I comb him, give him fish oil and tell him to stop shedding. Nothing works. lol...Altho the fish oil does make a difference.Anywho....gonna try to get some creative time today as well.
I hope everyone is feeling perky today. I shall return. Hugs and Prayers.

I was so tired from working around the house that I decided not to grill yesterday. When DH suggested Chinese carryout, I agreed, and we had a lavish spread. Since today is supposed to be warm again, I'll grill today, I think.

Catherine- I got a guy in the meat dept. at the local supermarket to mark down a 3# tube of ground round for me. Exp. date was 2/16 (I'll freeze it), on sale for 13.97- he marked it 4.99! YAY! (He was in a good mood- the lady before me wanted 5 stuffed jalepenos with bacon wrapped around them. There were 9 left in the tray, and he gave her all 9 for the price of 5. I LIKE this guy!) I got a 15# bag of potatoes for $1.59, bag of salad for 49 cents, 3# bacon ends & pieces for $3, and my favorite unbreaded chicken nuggets (in the deli) for $1.39. I went in to buy milk LOL. I always check the markdowns.

Pat you are still the Queen of Bargains and Deals!

Good morning! It is nippy this morning, works for me! DH brought home baguettes, an assortment of cheeses, Greek olives, and sparkling cider for our dinner. He was taking us on a walk down memory lane to how we ate the year we lived in France. It was tasty and a fun time to remember.

Carlene! Glad to see you pop in here. That is quite the viewing list you have. I am pretty much limited to all varieties of NCIS and a few others. My DH probably already thinks I watch too much, he is not a TV guy but I grew up with it. For us, every day is a day of fast from meat. I chose to become vegetarian a number of years ago. It still smells good to me when I smell it cooking but the last time I broke down and had some, it didn't taste anywhere near as good as it smelled!


Kandie - Your gifts were gorgeous and yes, I have had ho-hum responses to gifts that I spent time and love creating for the recipient. I found it discouraging.


Pat - Chinese carryout sounds fabulous! And your superpowers are amazing at finding the deal! And good for you for making him a card.


Well, off to work. Talk to you later!

Morning! Late start for me! Could not sleep with DH snoring away!! Up at 5:30 and then went back to bed!! Slept till 9:30 a.m.!

Son number five was up early for bathroom then back to bed then up again sick to his stomach. Now he is back sleeping again!!


Number one son, did not get the flu just a cold I guess! Hopefully, he is fine and working!


No one else is sick yet here! Trying to keep our distance from number five son!!


I am just sad that I will miss our granddaughters bday party with all her friends. She was going to introduce me to her three boyfriends!! Image that at seven years old!!


The only good thought is that we are not bringing sickness to all of the kids coming to the party!!


Gotta go check out challenges and load laundry!

Good news at the dental office. He was only in the chair about five minutes. Only one stitch left to remove and the OK to eat real food! LOL. His face was pure joy as he ate his roast beef sandwiches! Only two more appts left and he will finally be done. One will be to now make the permanent mold for the crowns and then to put in the permanent crowns! He should be done by the end of march!

No, I had leftover KFC from last night here in the fridge. He loves their Arbys sauce. I was just happy to see his face light up as he ate real food!

Hello all! Just caught up on chatter. I hope everyone that was feeling ill is feeling much better soon. Glad to hear about your son Kathy.

Kandie - I have the ultimate ho-hum story for you. I have an altered book picture in my gallery. It is my first time attempt at book folding. Last year for mother's day, I decided to take it up a notch and do a slightly more elaborate design on 2 more. One for my mom and one for David's. I spent countless hours shaping each page and flower petal by hand. My mom was thrilled and showed it to anyone who would stop to listen. When I phoned my MIL to see if she got hers, her reply was "Oh yes! I have taken all the flowers off so I can read the book." I thought she was kidding. Nope. Won't be sending her anymore handmade gifts.
