ALSO- y'all seen the Sihouette PORTRAIT in the New Arrivals section?! So it's smaller than a Cameo? For some reason, I thought a Cameo only cut 81/2X11? Ohhh I still aint bought my Sihouette- so maybe this'll be the one! lol
Hey, y'all! I'm home from another great day at work. If they would just turn me loose for about 5 or 10 minutes with a couple of our problem clients, my life would be so much better! I understand people make mistakes, even I (believe it or not!) make mistakes, but it shouldn't take 4 freaking hours to fix their screwup! Other than that little issue, I'm still glad to be back at work. It has really helped to get back into a routine, I'm actually sleeping through the night now! YAY! That probably helps me feel better more than anything, lol!
I got home today to a surprise! I finally made up my mind what I wanted to use the gift certificate that Henri Jean so generously gave me, and placed the order Monday. That's right, Monday. And the package came today! Another YAY! Gotta love sb.com's fast service! So now I have even more new goodies to play with!
Korybean, did you see that Demo Day at MHF is a different Saturday this month? Lisa's son is getting married on the 3rd Saturday so they moved it, I think it's the 2nd Saturday, have to look to be sure. But didn't want you to miss it!
Okay, gotta run, y'all have a great evening!
I'm with you, Korybean, on being excited about the hopefully cold and rainy weekend. I have several projects in my scrappy room that are just begging to be done, and since Monday is a holiday, if the weather cooperates, the long weekend will be perfect to get lots of stuff done. I'm very excited about the prospect of cold weather! I absofreakinglutely adore cold weather!! And I am so tired of this hot weather, I am not a hot weather person. I was born in the middle of winter, I figure that's why I love cold weather so much, lol!
Korybean, I gots your back when it comes to Demo Day, buddy! It wouldn't be near as much fun without you! And maybe, just maybe, if we cross all our fingers and toes and hold our breath and the stars are aligned and Mars is in retrograde, we might be able one of these times to get the lovely Ms Tanya and the awesome Ms Sheryl to join us. Maybe, lol!
Manda, hope you feel better soon. My sister has been sick with sinus infection and upper respiratory infection, seems like it is taking forever for her to get well.
Everyone have a great evening!
Anxious to see your new layouts when you post them!
Tanya, I'm going to look at some old layouts from last Halloween and see if the dress shows up on any of them. There was a photo taken by the ship photographer which really showed the dress by $39.00? I think not.
Dont know why Holland America ships photos are so much more than other ships.
Okay - best photo I can find but its just a small snapshot - but from one angle the material is red and from another its black. You can sort of see that, it just keeps changing from red to black as I move. The spider webs did not show up at all.
SUCH a busy day at work today! I've had no time to come by and chat But I got a lot done and that's always a good feeling.
I hope everyone who's feeling under the weather starts feeling better soon. Everyone who had great days today and yesterday, YAY!
Henri, I know what you mean about hauling costumes around. When Rob and I went to Italy earlier this year, we went during Carnival. We usually pack VERY light (one carry-on suitcase and two small school-size backpacks total for both of us for 2 weeks in New Zealand with beach and winter weather). But for Italy we both brought very large costumes. I had a hoop skirt, very large feathers, and a hat, plus the rest of my costume. We ended up taking 2 large suitcases and 2 backpacks with us. To us, that is a LOT. We were only in Italy for 2 weeks and normally would have taken just the one small carry-on plus our backpacks.
Darla - OMG, THANK YOU!!!!!!! I woke up this morning in disbelief!!! Thank you soooo much!!!!
Henri - LOVE the dress, looks awesome!!!! And your pages with the chandiliers are great!!!!
KK - I want him to be the ringmaster because I thought it would look classier than a zookeeper! And he always says I come up with ideas that make him look stupid. I have to agree, I've had some doozies, but I just say he's not a good sport, LOL!
Also KK - the Silhouette Portrait isn't worth it (in my opinion). The original Silhouette only did 8.5x11, the Cameo does 12x12, one of my reasons for upgrading. I say, for the money, the Cameo is still the better deal.
Sheryl - I love that new storage!!!
Demo Day - I'm definitely out this month. The Dog Walk is this Saturday, next Saturday is OU/Texas, and the following Saturday I'm at Affair of the Heart with my co-worker (unless she decides to back out). And later that night is our Halloween party. Busy month for me! That's another reason I have to get our costumes taken care of THIS weekend!
I stopped at Hancocks after work and found the perfect material for my dress and the fur for my "mane" and tail, etc. I'm SUPER excited about it!!! I used to sew more, but haven't since ... probably three or four Halloween's ago ... so I'm hoping it will be real easy to put in some straight seams. While I've got my machine out, I'm going to try sewing on some cardstock. Always wanted to do it, but never have!
Off to start my day ... have a fantastic day, everyone!!!
Crackel Barrel is arestaurant of mainly home country food style. Very good and the ambiance is very home like. Big chimney is always on. They a store before you get into the restaurant. Lof of rocking chairs in the big front porch. Love it!
