Well, I thought I was going to abandon blogger, but here I am back again. Tomorrow is a day we celebrate Independence Day and all the sacrifices that went along with it. This is “Our Family’s” holiday; besides Thanksgiving. We will have to put off celebrating as we do with Fanfare and Fireworks….Dave does them up big, not little bottle rockets at our place. He and our son put on a show to rivel Disney World! I’m not kidding! Out here in NE PA we have the blessing/curse of the gas pipelines being put in and wells being drilled. So right now there are big bright lights out in the field, obscuring what is the perfect setting for sparkles and colors from our pyrotechnic display!!! So maybe we will have a day during the summer to have family, fun and fireworks!
Well, we didn’t get so much snow. Lots of wind this morning. Was hoping for more of an accumulation. Oh well Nemo, you aren’t such a big fish here after all.
OK, in my previous post I told you I had a huge pile of laundry……some was claimed and this is what is left. Really???
OK you working girls and guys. What do you do to keep on top of laundry??? I have a few days here before starting on a new path and let me tell you, I haven’t hit bottom yet! 4 loads yesterday, 3 today and the thing is “It’s not mine”……all these clothes and they don’t belong to anyone!!! Don’t get me started then on the folding and putting away. I don’t dare take a photo of my kitchen table right now. Or maybe I should and some poor sole may take pity on me and come help. Alas……it is me and my mountain. So, what do you do to stay on top of this? Post and let me know!
Yeah! I am home today. I am going in a different direction for my “9-5” job and so excited to go back to doing something I love…..more later on that.
I took Joanne Sharpe’s Letter Love 101 class and loved it. She now has Letter Love 201 that began February 1st and will run for 28 days. I finally was able to log on and view the first two videos. Once again, there will be no more disappointment.
Check her out if you aren’t familiar with her whimsical lettering style!
I am going to start having some Paper Play days at my home. It will be a day for just doing crafts. Feel free to bring whatever you would like, it doesn’t have to be strictly scrapbooking or stamping. I will post a calendar soon with dates. In the mean time feel free to grab my Paper Play Graphic if you plan on coming and playing with paper (or cloth, or whatever!)
To all family and friends that know Dave, remember my previous post about him rescuing a kitten from outside that was almost feral? OK, he wanted to find a home for “Fred” as he calls it. First
softening up mistake, giving it a name. I go upstairs to see what our plans are for Sandy, the latest storm heading our way and what do I see? Take a gander…….
I am giving away two marker sets this month in a random drawing on October 31st! That is a total of four alcohol markers! Just watch the video and post on my blog or facebook page how you will use them in your art project!
How to get some cool two tone effects!
