Good morning ladies, TGIF!
It is our homecoming this weekend. DS3 is driving his dgf and 2 friends 30 miles away to go to dinner. Makes me nervous! But I love that they get all dressed up. O I need to shorten his pants, just remembered.

I finished a great book last night Harvesting the Heart by Picoult now starting the Hunger Games triology on my tablet-first time reading a book on here:)

Well I'm just starting the first book and it's about teens killing each other-I think. I've just read chapter one so far. The entire city dresses up and gathers round. All teenagers names go in a jar and like a lottery, a boy and girl name are drawn from each area (12 areas) and they are sent into the wild to kill each other. The last one alive wins. They have no choice about it. They get their names put in more times each year in exchange for food. It's from a very poor area. Not usually something I would pick up but I've been told by many friends that they are all awesome. It's even replaced the reading requirements of To Kill a Mockingbird in some high schools.

I read the Hunger Games Trilogy. It's very good!!! It's been awhile though. It's like in the future where people live in camps or communes and the rules have been set by the elders.

Nikilynn, I left you a birthday message over at the other site. Of course my hello kitty can't compare to your firemen.

That's what I'll have for my birthday too. I want one my age that's not married though. LOL!!!

Nikilyn! Happy Belated Birthday!!

Deb: nice son-in-law!! definitely a keeper...



Today is my daughter's Birthday Observed. We are going to try bowling- my son thinks he can do it without any trouble. Fingers crossed! Then the rest of the day will be spent putting together her new Hogwart's Express legos. But her favorite present will be watching carefully from the table: she begged me for a styrofoam and feather crow from Michael's a few weeks ago. I madeher wish come true, and he is now apart of everything we do. She named him Jasper. I love my quirky 10 year old!

IMELDA!!!! Are you near Niagara Falls???? I am going to be on the NY side of Niagara Falls in a few months! My aunt lives in Lewiston, NY and we are going to visit! If you are not far away, I can come to Canada and we can meet up!! How fun would that be? My aunt lives right near the Canadian border, so it wouldn't be much farther once I get to NY!

Deb doodle - you gotta introduce me to that icecream on my next trip!

Imelda - I couldnt have done it if I had small kids - or even if I had to cook more! This last week, with Josh back at university and Neil travelling to Mexico - well I had no excuse but to buckle down and get it done!

It is the hottest October day today for 100 years - just under 30C - we're all pulling our summer stuff out again!

Out for dinner tonight with friends in London so I gotta go and titivate!

I'm here to claim the beautiful Megan as my lil sis! I can't wait to spoil you...I've already been checking out your wishlist I have a few questions for you though. What "traditional" embellishments do you use (e.g. brads, buttons, ribbon, fiber etc)? Also, I'm not very familiar with the Cuttlebug. Can sizzix dies be used with it?

I hope you have a fabulous Sunday! Can't wait to start shopping!

Happy Sunday girls!!!

It's been a beautiful couple of days here in Florida. I had the grands yesterday for awhile. For the first time in sooooo long it wasn't roasting outside so Shane and I played some catch, then I sat outside with the baby while Shane and Brooke rode their bikes and skooters.

Around lunch time Brooke suggested we have a picnic in the yard. So I whipped up some tuna sandwiches and we sat on a quilt in the shade and had those and some chips and pickles. It was just so perfect out there. The baby really enjoyed it too since I gave him some cheetos to maul. When they'd get too small I'd take them from him because I didn't want him to swallow them and he'd let out a scream. LOL!!!! But then he'd get a fresh one so he was happy again.

Rachel, you bet I'll break out the Ben & Jerry's New York Super Fudge Chunk next time we meet. You'll find it as spectacular as the Blizzard!!!

Michelle, your daughter sounds like an absolute gem!!! A styrofoam and feather crow. What a girl!!! I love her already. And Happy Birthday to her!!! Oh, and my son bought me the B&J's. I only have sons hence no son in law. This one is the one that's possibly moving back in for awhile. At the rate he's going it will be a joy. Just keep bringing Mom those little presents. LOL!!

I started my day out at 5:30am, met some friends, drove 30 miles away to do a 5K cancer walk. I missed church but felt it was ok today. Now my DS3 is dirtbiking and DH is watching football, so I am catching up some here and will scrap a little, if I don't fall asleep first. Darn I'm tired.

Thanks for claiming me!!! (And calling me beautiful!) I am soo excited for you to get to know me (and eventually I will get to know who you are!!! ) The cuttlebug (as far as I know) is just like the Sizzix big shot as far as what it does, but it is more compact. And yes, you can use any brand of dies in it. As for traditional embellishments I have them coming out the wazoo!!! Simply because I do not use them! I have jars filled with buttons (separated by color and then put in rainbow order of course), I have 2 (TWO!!!) Clip it Up ribbon Organizers, plus all my scraps of ribbon on hangers (in rainbow order). I have tons of plain brads & fancy brads...hmmm...I actually have a lot of everything except newer stuff. So as far as traditional things go, I already am pretty well covered for the basics. I could use some WHITE textured cardstock though! I prefer the American Crafts 12x12 White Textured Cardstock (It comes in a pack of 60 sheets and you can find it online for about $12). I am going to work on making some Halloween kits and eating something!

Have a great week big sis!!!

Hi Rebecca. I hope your weekend has been as lovely as you are. We are having the most amazing hot weather at the moment, and instead of warm winter woollies, I was wearing my sleeveless silk top while we were out for lunch today.

Everyone was out and about - lots of people walking along the towpath by the Thames and just enjoying the sunshine!

This evening I have sorted out the mail I have to send - birthday cards, cd and wedding cake to Rosita (sorry I'm so slow!), wedding photocard for Debbie, and some stuff for the xbox that ds left behind last week.

I also packed up the photos for the church we're going to next weekend. It was my dads first church as an ordained minister, and he saw it built from ground up. He took photos (the old slides/transparencies) and I had them printed out for the Golden Jubilee celebrations next weekend.

Oh I've been claimed! Yay!!!!! I saw that photo of myself and thought for a second I had screwed things up and gave myself away already to my big sis! BUT I see you've been pretty crafty in finding a photo of me...this is going to be a fun round! So happy to have been claimed already! Yep I am at training...two weeks away from home and away from my scrap stuff....it's gonna be hard!

Tres, Dana's doing ok. She's been having some personal problems alot lately and so has been on an emotional up and down roller coaster (drama, ugh!) lately. Healthwaise she's doing well though.

So, some fo you know I've been working on a benefit for Rafe, so he can have the surgery he needs to try and stop the violent awful seizures he has every day. WELL, it was a huge success! we raised $5K in five hours! AND the day before the benefit we got the best news imaginable! My son's (who is in Afghanistan)chain of command have been working behind the scenes and they have found a naval doctor that is going to do the $100,000 surgery pro-bono! at a military hospital! It's a miracle...truly! We're so happy we can't see straight. None of his after care, respite, post op appointments etc will be covered by insurance though, so the money we raised will g to that. Also, we found out yesterday....my son gets to come home from Afghanistan for the surgery! SO excited!

Oh. For some reason I thought you were back home. So glad you are able to spend so much time with your mom.

Opps just noticed I spelt your name wrong.. That may mean I have to send you something extra in your first package.

I guess my first few questions are: what project(s) are you currently working on?
Besides scrapping, what is your favorite pasttime?



Well then in that case you can spell my name wrong anytime! Well I just bought 2 latch hook rug craft kits to make for my daughters. I have a scrapbook and card making group that I organize back home and my next event i'm hosting is a Christmas tag swap so I'm working on a tag. I'm throwing a huge Halloween party for my kids at the end of the month so I'm working on putting together little embellishments to use for the party. My favorite pastime besides scrapping I guess was cross stitching and doing arts and crafts. Hope I answered your questions so far.

Good for you Rachel! You girls are so organized!

Earlier this week I broke two of the fingers on my left hand and had to have stitches as well. I am just such a clutz sometimes! It is getting better but I'm still a terrible typer with it like this!




Wow Pink!!! How in the world did you do that? I'm so sorry!! How are you getting along?

Tina, how fun! I am jealous.
I am on my way to a day of meetings at work. It is our first Monday of the month marathon of meetings. It is usually the only day we are all in the office together.
Good luck with your job training Mel!
I hope all of you have a wonderful day!

I did it by lifting a very heavy candy jar and dropping it on my hand and the wire rack it was sitting on. I need to learn to stay away from sweets!

OH my Kimberly!!! You must be more careful! I hope your hand heals quickly! And take something for the pain if it hurts--no reason to be in pain when there are meds to help! (At least that is my philosophy )

Hi BIG SIS!!! I hope you have a wonderful day!!!

I am going to scrap soon--I have swap kits & M/M/Ms to finish and mail out today. Then I am going to shop, shop, shop for my lil sis when I go out to the post office I am stopping at Archiver's (OOOO!!!) and maybe Michael's, A.C. Moore and JoAnn's to check out the sales. Archiver's NEVER has sales, but they have ALL the new stuff!!! I love going there, but I need to bring limited money and NO credit cards--if I do let myself buy what I want I end up spending $300 a pop every time I go into that store! After doing that 2 times I learned my lesson!

Hi Tres! Yes, I will certainly be more careful about the sweets. I chose the candy jar because it was so heavy and big and I thought it would be harder for the kids to get into it all the time...well, turns out it is just as hard for me to get into it as well. Honestly, I guess I learned my lesson!
