JCI, bored at work, figured I would stop in while the teams practice out in the gym. Don't need to watch that train wreck!!!

Gen-type as much as you want, whenever you want girly!!

Kim-Sorry to hear about your back. I have a little benign back pain mostly due to the physically demanding nature of my job and the very sad fact that I don't stretch or anything before I play soccer... whoops!! I'm a Physical Therapy Assistant and do patient care in the mornings before the high school part of my job, and unfortunately about 90% of patients are back patients. Its usually either car accident or degenerative changes, sadly. Just this morning I had 5 patients and 4 were back and 1 was knee. Sometimes PT can really help! I hope you do find some relief very soon!!!

Thanks for the gallery love on my new doggy LO with the tree!! I absolutely LOVE LOVE that photo!!!

Gen- He was stationed at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri and also in Greenville, SC, but he couldn't remember the name of the unit there.

And don't worry about being long-winded, we do care!!!!!

Yeah, they are. They have helped increase my LO "visibility"!! And as long as thats an appropriate way to say thanks! I do try to check out others galleries too. You never know what cool-looking LO technique you might see!!

And although my job allows me time to scrap and play on the internet (shh! ), I sadly cannot be on here all day!!

WTG Erika on the gallery counts!!! I try my best to thank but then...not always to ones like everyone here...you all know how much I appreciate your commments and as long as you try to comment back that is fair right?
Now, there are some people who never comment back or send thank yous and that kind of burns me (none of you guys though) but it is hard to keep up with everyone!

Speaking of wich....here is another from me!

Yes, thankfully everyone was rescued.  And I have to fly twice very soon.   Once in Feb. to Charleston, SC for a girls weekend and then March to the Netherlands for a work/fun trip.  I do not fly well ever since 9/11.  I just think everyones is suspect and is going to light  a bomb, or the plane will just fall out of the sky.  I had just shared this last thought with a friend last week when I found out I was going to fly overseas.  She said, and I quote, "planes don't drop out of the sky and crash in the ocean.  Thats like Lost and thats not real"  Can you believe it!!  She was trying to make me feel better.  So, of course when this happened today in NY, I just had to send her a text!!  I don't make this stuff up!  It really happens!

Hello everyone. Hope all is well. It got down to -1 last night. But unfortunately no snow. This type of weather is only fun when the ground is covered in white and you can sled!

Dh and I went out on a date last night. This is the third one we've been on since Zander was born. LOL! We went to Olive Garden and then to Michaels!!!! My Chirstmas present from him was money to spend in whatever store I wanted and that's the store I chose! We had a lot of fun. But both of us agree that going anywhere without ds just feels weird. We are so used to glancing in the backseat every 10 secs! We always have fun together but it always a relief to come home and see our little boy.

I just got back from wally world with some pics I printed out so new lo's are soon to come!

Oh MY GOSH!! You guys, we had the worst Saturday ever, I think, yesterday!! See mey 6ft,2in, son needed a new bed, REALLY BAD!!! He was sleeping on a twin Captain's bed with a cheap mattress and hung off of it. Anyway, we set out at 10:30 to shop for a mattress. Again, Oh My Gosh!! I had no idea how much they could cost and how many different types there are!! We started at a place called Sleepy's - they have a thing you lay on and it tells you what type of bed you need and of course the over dressed, tell ya what I can do salespeople. He starts out showing us this matress set that is THREE THOUSAND dollars!! For a 17 year old!! So, we finally managed to get out of there, went to Bob's Discount furniture, went from just a mattress to looking at a whole new bedroom set! Until dh realize that the $999 did NOT include a mattress!! Hellooooo!!! Then, we decided on a matress set and he found a bench that he wanted, for the foot of the bed. But we could get the bed until Wednesday and the bench not until MARCH!! So, I really didn't want to wait, see ds wanted to clean and redo his room, yesterday and that was not something I was going to mis!! So, we ended up at Sam's found a nice price Queen set. Only problem, we had left our Sam's Card at home, the temp card hubby had as expired!! We drove back home, 30 minutes, got the card, left ds home to start cleaning, this was around 3:30 or 4:00, went to Wal-Mart bought sheets and a bedspread. Drove down to Sam's got the mattress... Got home and all three of lit into DS's room. GOOD Lord Almighty, that room was just filthy!! It had not had a good, mom is in here watch out cleaning in a couple of years. We finish right around 10:00.

My son really likes his new bed and gives us a hard time because his is (looks) bigger. It is actually a little taller. They are both queens, he is so tall that's what we had to get. But his room smells and looks so nice and clean now. He even asked for some coasters for drinks. How long will he use them? I don't know, but he asked!!

Ohhhmyyyygoshhhhhh. I just woke up to the most beautiful snow. I'm sooooooooooo stinkin happy!!!!! Hopefully it stays for at least a few hours. I keep trying to wake my hubby up to go play with me... but he won't get out of bed. He's such a grumpy pants in the morning.

Hope everyone has a great day. I'll get my new lo up as soon as I can get a good pic. I kinda need sun for that, but I'd rather it stay snowy for a few days! haahhaha

You Southerners and your snow!!!! Sheez!! How 'bout 1-2x a week. Snow sucks. Or temperatures below 35 for 3-4 months. Ugh! LOL!!!

Kim, cute story! I always think mattress shopping should be one of those things where you go in, feel what ya like, buy, take home...but there's always some dumb salesman who wants to show you the whole showroom with special focus on the highest priced!!

Jane, how are we doing on the Jan cluster challenge??

I went to my first "class" yesterday evening at my LSS! It was a Winter Fun book, very cute. I just wanna add some chalking and inking before I add my photos. There were only 4 of us, so it was a small and quiet affair. Also, my LSS has Silhouette's for $149.99, which I think is pretty good price, that my Mom wants to get me for my birthday. That's in June, but I'm trying to convince her to just give it to me NOW!!! She is a QVC/HSN obsessed shopper and is always calling me in regards to the scrappy things they have on. So on Fri, she woke me up to see if I wanted a Xyron Cutting Machine. We engaged in some dialogue on all the different types and prices of these cutting machines. Then my LSS puts out the email on the Silhouette. I read about it and I think I might like it. I don't want to have to buy cartridges. It'll be my first, so hopefully I can figure it out!!

Enjoy!!

Erika I had a Cricut Expressions and I didn't like it all! You could even say I hated it! I know ton of people love it, but not me. I couldn't get it to cut right, seemed like it took forever to get allt he letters added to cut. You can only cut on size at a time...

I have a Silhouette now and I love it!! No cartridges is a big factor, but you can cut any font that is on your computer and you can download fonts for free!! It's fast, it's easy to set the blades right. I can do several diferent sizes at once... Unless you plan on cutting really big stuff, I strongly recommend the Silhouette! JMO.

Erika I already posted my cluster LO's!!
but I added them to the front so you could see!!!! LOL!!!

Rose, thats so great!! Woo-hoo!! My cousin is keeping a notebook on all her dates: blind, online or otherwise and she is convinced she has a best seller in the making!!! She's so funny!! She's told me some good ones...and by that I mean such a disaster that you just have to laugh about it now!

No official word on the Silhouette. Mom has said that she called to put it on hold for me. Not sure if this is her way of hiding it from me til June!! Evil woman! I tried to convince her to give to me today but could only come up with: "Because I want it" when she asked me why I should get it now. She said I sounded ten y.o. just then!! I told her a card in June is all I would need if I could just have that Silhouette NOW!!! LOL!!

Soooo bored at the high school today...only practice...I brought some scrappy things to work on.

Thanks for all the gallery love on my newest Titus LO!! If he only knew how sweet you guys were, you'd all get slobbered!!! (is that even a word??)

Hey ladies! Hope everyone had a great week. My hubby has officially kicked off his Intensive training Cycle. He's been gone since Wednesday since they closed the base on Tuesday for the snow. It was pretty much amazing! lol. One would think that since I am alone I would have had a lot of time for scrappin lately, but no... not the case. I have been so busy these past few days that I haven't even had time to catch my breath. My friends and I are getting together tonight to scrap though, but I was really wanting to do it at my house since I have the most stuff, but my friend wants to do it at hers, so it's gonna be annoying to lug all my stuff over there for just a few hours of work. grrrrrrr. I'm one of those that needs all my stuff around me to get my juices going. lol. So-- today is cleaning day. I'm putting it off of course. ;P My anniversary is on Sunday. It's our 3rd, but we have yet to spend one together, and it's not looking good for this one or the next one. He deployed 6 days before our first, was still deployed on our second, he'll still be away on Sunday, and the next one he'll be deployed again. Kind of depressing. Sooo.... I'm gonna go comment on all the new los, and then clean my filthy house!!! I'll check in later. Happy Fridayyyyy!!!

Hey ladies! Hope all is well with you! Sorry I've been MIA the last few days. I see there's plenty of new lo's to comment on! That should keep me busy for a while!

Gen-I'm sorry to hear that about not being together for your anniversary. That's gotta be tough.

I thought I'd have a few more lo's done by now, but no such luck. I hope to get working on them soon, probably Monday.

Dh hit his head really bad at work Tuesday night. When he went to the doctor he found out he had a concussion. He's had a non-stop headache ever since. That first night he was slurring his words and rather confused. Needless to say he hasn't been back to work yet, and his first day back (from the lay-off) was Monday! I feel so bad for him!

Oh Tiffany, that's too bad about your hubby. Did you have to wake him up every few hours the first night? I had a concussion many years back and my mom has to do that.

So was planning to scrap today, but ended just plaing around with my Silhouette some, which is good. Maybe tomorrow.

I'm like you Kim, I've been playing with it all evening! I think I'm going to like it!!

It was really quiet in the LSS today. I made a mini book that I hope to get photos of tomorrow. There aren't any photos to go in it yet, its for my girls weekend coming up in Feb. I was the only one that came. So it was just me, and 2-3 of the other staffers. We gabbed and gossiped though!!

Now just chillin with my beer, my dog and now my Silhouette!!! (I know...what an exciting Sat. night..whoo hoo...)

He turned it off because he said it was dangerous. It was exploding so he was probably right!

Nonetheless, it was FREEZING in the house - I do live in Canada!!!!

Jill- I'm so glad your dh is back home with you! I've been praying for yall.

Erika- Your Sat night sounds similar to mine... minus the dog, + a friend and her 3yo son. lol. Glas you had fun at your lss. Oh and congrats on your new Silhouette!!! I've never used one bf... you'll have to tell me how you like it.

Kim- don't you just love when you plan on scrappin and get distracted with your tools? lol. I'd love to hear more about the Silhouette... I might need one b/c I hate my Cricut.

Guess what!!?? I got my Silhouette!! Happy Birthday 6 mos in advance to me!!

I'm like you Kim, I've been playing with it all evening! I think I'm going to like it!!

It was really quiet in the LSS today. I made a mini book that I hope to get photos of tomorrow. There aren't any photos to go in it yet, its for my girls weekend coming up in Feb. I was the only one that came. So it was just me, and 2-3 of the other staffers. We gabbed and gossiped though!!

Now just chillin with my beer, my dog and now my Silhouette!!! (I know...what an exciting Sat. night..whoo hoo...)[/quote]


WAHOOO!!!! Your gonna love it!! When I get on my other computer I will pm you a couple of useful links - one tell you how to print on your printer and then cut it out on the Silhouette. The other is a site where people have created things you can cut out. Also, if you lss has a beginners class - take it. I have some handouts from mine and I refer to them all the time!!

OK, I'm checking in. I haven't had my computer turned on ALL WEEKEND.

Friday night went very well, so did Saturday and Sunday. He's ready to give me a ring, and I want to take it, but I'm scared of making a mistake.

Jill - Why did he turn your furnace off??

Rosita - More info, please!!! Where did ya go, what did ya do????

I have three layouts for challenges I gotta get done! One I have to get done today - Yikes!! Then I'll work on the cluster layout. Maybe I can combine two of the challenges!!





He turned it off because he said it was dangerous. It was exploding so he was probably right!

Nonetheless, it was FREEZING in the house - I do live in Canada!!!!



Well, better cold than dead, so maybe I wouldn't fire him.

We've been dating less than a week!

My weekend...Friday night was dinner and then stand-up comedy. There's a place here that has stand-up every weekend that I love to go to, and he loves it too...we were talking until about 12:30 in the morning. Remember girls, I'm a 9:00 bed-time gal even on the weekends?

Saturday he came over for lunch and then went with me to ds' soccer game. I found out there that he was the quarter back in high school. Then we drove down to ________ to pick up ds' new glasses, and then we went to the park and he worked with ds, teaching him how to drop kick the ball...then we all went out for pizza, then we came home and played pictionary (dd's idea), and then we cuddled on the couch and watched a dvd of stand-up comedy that I had. I was so comfortable, I was falling asleep...

Sunday he showed up at my church! This was important for me. After church, he went with me to the mall. I had agreed to take dd and 2 of her friends to the mall, and he was happy to tag along because he wanted to spend more time with me. One time when the girls went in one store, he said, "Let's stop in here (jewelry store), so I can find out what you like" I did tell him that I've always imagined that when I got engaged, I didn't want a diamond engagement ring, I wanted a ruby engagement ring. Y'know how stones are supposed to signify different things?...the ruby symbolizes love. He pointed out a ruby ring that had diamonds all around it...good taste.

He went home before I left for church last night, but he did tell me that he doesn't want to wait until next weekend to see me.

Kim-I was SUPPOSED to wake him up every two hours but he wouldn't let me! He said I got enough of that when ds was smaller. But I didn't need to anyway. He was tired all the time but couldn't sleep. Today he's going to go back to work to see how he does (he works second this week).

Congrats Rose!!! This is SO exciting! He sounds like a great guy!!! Good luck! I'm so glad for you!

Kim, whenever you get a chance to pm that Silhouette stuff, I surely appreciate it!!! I did a title to a chipboard album I'm working on, I did some flourishes for my Ed's chipboard album I'm working on. I think I'm going to like it! Its easy enough to use too! Its a little louder then I thought it would be but who cares, I'm cuttin' titles!!!

So I've changed my mind on the big DSLR. I'm gonna grab just a small point-n-shoot to throw in my purse. Thats more like the photographer that I am anyways. But turns out there is like 100!!! I thought I had it narrowed down to three, but now I'm not sure. Some are sooo similiar it hard to choose!! I have a big Sony that I have really liked (and truthfully theres nothing really wrong with it, just 2 y.o.) so I think maybe I should stick with Sony, then again, I had a film Elph camera (i think canon) that I used to LOVE, you know the kind, B.D. hehehe Before Digital!! Plus there this Olympus with great zoom. Canon and Kodak have like a 100 each!!

So does anyone on here just have a little point-n-shoot that they love??!!! TIA

Erika, I'll get that stuff to you. I can also scan some of the stuff I have from the class I took if you want. It's a lot of the basics, but it's some good stuff to have.

I have the Cannon PowerShot SX110 IS, I love it. It's the second PowerShot I've had. They're just easy to use. This one has a 10x zoom!!

I told him tonight on the phone that he was going a little too fast for me. I told him if it were just me, then I might be right there with him, but I've got 2 kids to protect. He seemed totally cool with that, and said he wasn't in a big hurry to get married, he just didn't want someone else to get to my heart before he did. He told me he's not after my money (good thing because it isn't there) or other things. I told him I was after his money because I want a bigger house with a scrapbook room!

No, haven't got around to scrapping, yet. DH is working on getting everything set so if our power goes out again we will have our generator. Had to run to Lowe's to exchange something, then had lunch.

We got dumped on with snow this am as well! Worst morning commute so far this season. Dead crawl on the xway...all four lanes!!! Luckily I only go like 3 miles down the road!!

Thanks for helping with my camera request those of you who did! its been helpful. There are just WAY too many opitions in the P & S level! Kim, that Canon that you have seems great! I have a bigger P & S that has a 12x zoom, which two years ago was cool, now they make them with 24x!! But I want a pocket sized one! I added the Canon you have to my list of possibles!!!

Hello everyone, well we still have power, thank goodnes. We do have a generator now, but you can't find a transfer box to save your life around here. I think we just have ice falling now. What a mess. My friend accross the street called earlier to see if I had any sand or kitty liter, their van is stuck, in the driveway, sideways!!! It's a on a hill and it isn't going anywhere right now.

Got a layout down today...thought I'd post it then I gotta run huibby wants to watch a movie. So, I'll chat with you all tomorrow!!

Anyway, I did another lo, not sure I like it or not though.

Hi ladies!!!

Sorry about all the snow you guys got Erika and Kim...I know I wouldn't have wanted it!

Your photos are funny Kim...guess you need a scraproom fairy to clean up after you huh? I wish I had one too...maybe that'a why I do digi so much lately!!!

Tiffany...I have been digi scrapping for a year or a little more and I love it...I just bought my first kits on line the other day up until then I was using freebies that you can get just about anywhere! so as far as that goes it is a lot cheaper!! I don't have PS but Digital Image Suite and it works fine for me..I'm just scared to ge PS and have to learn all of it!!

What kind of PS do you have Jill?

I have uploaded about 9 LO's but instead of loading them all on here I just thought I would tell you and if you want you can stop by and leave a comment or two!!!

Later girls!

"was"? Well, it's better to have found now, then before the kids and you got too attached. So sorry. (however, even though no one has asked, we are dieing for details.)

At any rate, your Mr. Right for You is out there and you will find him. Hugz!!!

Hey Rose. So sorry about the dating. My mom actually just jumped back into the dating scene. She has been divorced for almost 11 years! She has had some really bad experiences over the past few months, and I was so afraid she was going to give up. I'll tell you exactly what I told her... I think that the process is so hard.. getting to know someone only to find out they are not who they say they are. But you should not let that stop you-- it will happen... in God's timing. keep the faith girl

What's that saying?? If it seems too good to be true, it probably is?

I'm praying for you.
