Martica, have you had a chance to look at the blog title I sent you??


Yes I did I sent you a text. It is awesome I love it. Thank you so much. At first I was a bit frustrated with my blog because I could not delete the background but finally I figured it out. And it came out great. Thanks again.

Sorry to hear Yvonne! Hope you're feeling better by now. For most people I know, it was at least a week, so hopefully you are on the down swing of it.

Lorna, gorgeous tag. Left a bit of lovin' in your gallery.

Back to work today. I'm told that by the 1st of March, I should be back to my normal schedule. The new girl is all trained and finally taking over needed spots. It'll be good to have my weeks back.

ACU & Happy Presidents Day for those of you who get the day off.
I ordered my Steampunk paper and hope it gets here tomorrow. I've never used the mfg I ordered so that's always nerve wracking as I hope its good quality. Waiting to see ...

Susie, Linny, Lorna all your tags are so gorgeous!
Debbie so glad to hear that things will be getting back to normal for you.
Yvonne feel better soon. That flu is nasty.

Thank you for the sweet sugar you left in my gallery for my art postings. I'm not sure who asked about more info, but here's a link to www.Willowing.org for more info on Life Book or individual classes. There's some free lessons there too, so have fun browsing.

Each Monday I get a new lesson, and I haven't checked this mornings yet as I'm two lessons behind and want to catch up in the next week.

DH started preparing the house yesterday to paint the trim. He liked that idea as much as a root canal! But, its been 12 years, so there really is no putting it off another season. Thank goodness!

Its time for DH's work out, so got to run. Have a happy day!

Hoping those that are ailing are on the mend! Having been there myself, it takes a while!!

Our electricity went out in the night. Down to the mid 59's in the house! Brrrrr! Looks like over 2000 homes are w/o power. Not much you can do until it comes back on! Hurry please!

According to the weather report it's heading Northeast out of here, so it should miss you, Debbie.

I was laughing at my earlier post, should have said the mid 50s in my house. Warming up nicely now.
But supposed to be more ice, snow & wind headed our way tonight. Yuck!

Heading out for a day of shopping with my sister today. Planning on hitting Hobby Lobby while I'm out to pick up a few goodies for my SS so I can mail out my tag. If I pick up some goodies, I'll be able to wrap this baby up and mail it out tomorrow.

Hitting the 70's today. I'm thinking about opening up a few windows and airing the winter out of this house.

I shopped until I dropped today with my sister. And when I say until I drop, that's usually only takes a couple of stores. I of course had the most fun at Hobby Lobby. Picked up a few things to put in my SS box to send with her tag. Came home and wrapped it all up and will hit the Post Office tomorrow. To exhausted to head back out today.

Everyone who is sick, please get better. This has been a terrible season for germs spreading.

Holy sCRAP, I received my tag today and Pam was my SS. Let me tell you girls, I totally want to redo my tag because it is nothing compared to what this girl did. It's HUGE and it's PHENOMENAL and it's out of this world amazing. I can't say enough about it. And she sent me some wonderful goodies to go with it. The lace she sent is gorgeous and the baubles are awesome. Photo's do not do this tag justice.

To my SS.... I'm so sorry but my tag is nothing in comparison to this tag and I'm totally wanting a redo. I have a whole new outlook on what a tag size should be. I definitely miscalculated.

I need to figure out how I will wrap my tag for mailing to......... well she is part of this swap.

We must have posted at the same time Deb. If you need a redo then I need to scrap mine. We are our own worse critics. My excuse is tags are so hard for me to sink my teeth into unless for my blocks.

Debbie- I am so happy you like the tag. I spent a lot of time looking through your gallery to try to get a sense of your color preferences so I was very happy when you mentioned you liked the color in your earlier comments. I had so much fun making it for you and I feel like I know you better now. I am just sorry I left the note out. It was in the back pocket until I decided to rearrange things.

Regarding your tag- I know for sure you are being silly in your comparison because your work is spectacular and your secret sister is going to thrilled when she receives it. I actually had no idea what size the tag should be.

Have to remake 3 of the 5 tags I had already done because lol they looked too much like Katies! But like they say, great minds think alike! So I'm doing a lil somethin somethin different on my tags! Dry time the pits! 85 here today and we have a winter weather advisory for ice and snow for tonight! I just don't get this weather! But I like the nicer days for sure!
Sorry to hear so many of you are sick! Big hugs!!!!!!!!!!

Oh Donna, sorry you're not feeling well! That stinks, esp when the weather sounds so nice, temp wise.

We hit 69 today, which is really unusual for Feb here in NY. It'll be 70 again tomorrow, and then colder and snow flurries Thurs. That's what makes people sick.

I've got _._._._._.'s package all wrapped and ready to go so I'm going to swing by the Post Office today and mail it out in between dusting and mopping and cleaning this house. Feeling a little lazy right now. Read deep into the night so then I ended up sleeping in this morning. Only now having my first cup of coffee. Once it settles into the brain, I'll be able to function again.

Donna, please take care of yourself.

Hey sweets!

Donna, happy you are feeling a bit better!!

Since midnight, last night, I've been dealing with finding out I've been hacked! I feel so violated and so angry. I'm trying to stay calm and do whatever I can do to protect myself. At one time I had signed up with a company that tracks activity on your accounts. Can't recall the name...not so sure I was thrilled with them anyway. Any suggestions of where I can sign up for this type of service?

As far as the hacking, I posted this on FB as I want to give folks a heads up on what hackers can do nowadays!!! Even Caller ID can be tampered with!!!!

If you are a Direct TV subscriber, please know that there is a scam being perpetrated on some subscribers. You can receive a phone call from what appears to be, โ€œDirect TVโ€. Their name and true phone number will appear on your caller ID and you will be offered a fabulous promotion that โ€˜theyโ€™ are offering in conjunction with Amazon Gift Cards. All you need do is pay 4 months in advance via an Amazon Gift Card and the wonderful new plan will be yours. Wrong! They are able to intercept the gift card that is sent to YOUR email address and redeem it! It is a scam. Itโ€™s so scary to think โ€˜theyโ€™ have the ability to have your caller ID state a company you do business with. And, they can intercept emails sent to your email address! Yes, this happened to me. But it can also happen to you. So, please be aware of how these hackers operate!!! If they can infiltrate Direct TV, I would think they could do the same with other companies. And can probably get access to your email, as they did mine.

As I try to protect myself against these hackers, I hope sharing this experience prevents you from being a victim of this type of fraudulent activity.

A representative shared this website with me. You can enter your email address to determine if your account has been compromised. www.haveibeenpwned.com

As Roseanne Roseannadanna would say, โ€œItโ€™s always somethingโ€.

Hello ladies I am in front of company where I work waiting for my time to go in.

Alvie I agree when you are antsy create.

Linny so sorry you were hacked . I will mention that when companies / hackers offer you things but you need to pay in advance or ask you to enter personal info that is a red flag. Best thing to do is either go to actual website in this case Directtv and see if it is true. Or call company and ask is there a promotion going on. Never never enter any information in that link they sent you. I myself have gotten fake emails pretending to be from PAYPAL and other companies and have had to call to verify and more then half the time they are hackers.

Well ladies have a great day must go to work I will be back later.

Wow Linnny, thanks for the update. At least I don't have to worry about being hacked thru any cable/dish companies since I don't have any of that any more. But it's like you said, it can happen at any time. These hackers are extremely smart people. Why don't they get real jobs with their expertise. It's a scary time.

Cheryl, are you feeling better?

Woke up sneezing and stuffed nose. Darn weather turned cold again and I had to turn the heat back on.

Back to work today after a week home sick! Still feel shaky and down.....

If somebody calls from a "company" ask for their name and phone number.
Call back to the company's main number and make sure this number and person you have actually works there.

Hello all! Thought I check in! I have my tag done! Yeah!!!!!!! Just needs to dry before I try to move to take pics! This is my first loaded pocket tag so it took a bit to figure out how I will fit my tags! You all know that I do not know what scrapping flat means! LOL! Any who, rainy and no sun today! But should have some tomorrow to take pics. Oh but wait, I may wait to post until my secret sister sees it first! MMMM! Hope everyone is or starting to feel better! I get to stop wearing left hand brace Friday and right hand holding up with limitations! That is why its taking me so long to finish! HUGS!!

Linny I am so rude to folks on the phone selling stuff. There is a software program that you can use on the phone that changes the caller ID and can change your voice too. After where I grew up, I don't trust anyone unless I know them. I won't even make a payment if they call me. I have to call them on a number that I can verify. This is a scary world.

Cheryl, so glad that you are feeling better.

I too don't give out any information over the phone if they call me. I had someone from my pension program call me telling me they needed my address because what they had on file was wrong but to make sure that I am who I am they would need my Social Security number first. I told them that I would call them back at the number I have on file to make sure all is ok. Unbelievable.

Heading to the post office today to mail out my tag to ........... who lives in........... Just waiting for the rain to slow down a bit before heading out.

Yay it's Friday!!!! I get to sleep in the next two days!

Glad to hear some of you feel better, prayers for healing for all who don't feel well.

I am not anxiously waiting for my tag..... sorry.... have to be honest.

Talking about honesty.... I am truly ashamed and have asked for forgiveness from God for what I did the other night. I was honest with my answer, but I should not have been honest.
Here is the story:
Back ground first- There is a girl, well I call of us "girls", who has done some things to me that have really hurt me and I do not trust this person at all. The last thing she did that was so tacky was that the night my sister died, I was at the Moose Lodge when I was told my sister had passed. This person was there and said. "Oh, does she have a husband? Is he free now?" My other sister and I just looked at her. She is laughing thinking she is so funny. All it did was confirm how takcy this person really is, no "friend" would be so insensitive. She has done some other tacky things, but that was it for me.
So last Friday, Larry and I are at the Moose Lodge, we came in for a drink and then we were going to go over to a differnent place. We had sat at a table with quite a few other people we are acquainted with, except one guy across the table from Larry, we didnt know him, and the chair across from me was empty. Well.... this girl comes over and asks if she can join us, and I didn't say anything, but the guy across from us said sure. And I would have been fine with that. But she looks DIRECTLY at me and asks again... Is it okay if I sit here. and I looked at her and I could not say yes. I could say nothing. and she said... okay.... and walked away.
Later I was so ashamed. I shoud have just said "sure" because Larry and I were not staying long anyway.
I want to send her a card, but I do not know what to say. I know that I should have tol her yes,.... now I am paying for it with guilt. I asm so torn as to what to do.

I don't think you owe her anything, Kat! It would be different if she apologized for her extremely insensitive comment. She knows she's wrong! Trouble is, Kat, you are like me.....we want everybody to like us! And let's face it, not everybody deserves to be our friend. I would be cordial, but I would not go out of my way to be nice! AND DON'T SEND HER A CARD!

Maybe after time has passed, I can forgive her tackiness. Right now I am too sensitive about it. Tomorrow is my sister's Celebration of Life service that I totally dread going to. I spoke with my oldest sister last night. She said I should go because it will give me healing. And that funerals are for the living who have lost someone, not for the person who passed. It is for healing. I know I need healing, I can hardly think about her without crying right now. Unfortunately, my eldest sister and my mother cannot be there. They are in Seattle with my other sister who came down with pneumonia yesterday, which is not good because she has dialysis 3 times a week, very bad health as it is and now this. They are feeling so bad, but my sister needs them there with her. Life is so messy sometimes.

Alvie I agree with Susie that you should not send a card. Being honest is not a bad thing. The best thing to do is to let it be. If it happens again, you can decide whether you are feeling strong enough to have a conversation with her. If she apologizes, all the better. Right now you should do what will make you feel better in your grief. I am sorry you are going through this.

Hey dearies!!!!

Hope you gals who are not feeling well are doing better!

Been busy day and 'my babies' will be arriving soon!!!! Just took brownies out of the oven and the house is smelling delightful!!!! If it were up to me, a warm brownie and a dollop of vanilla ice cream would be the perfect dinner. But......

Late last night, well really early this morning, I was hanging out on youtube and came across altered pringle containers. They are altered into little treasure boxes, held long ways, of course. Let me go and get one......

Linny, I saw those too. And I just finished some Pringle. They look beautiful. I think that you should make one and let us see. I think that I saw it on FB or Pinterest. I use the plastic ones for my paint brushes

Linnny, we used pringle cans to make our santa's one year. It's amazing all the things you can do with those.

My tag is on the way and will arrive at my Secret Sisters house on Monday. At least that's what I was told but I don't trust the post office these days but at least know there is another tag on it's way.

Alvie, I understand how you are feeling. It is not the other persons action that we are responsible for but ours. God loves you and knows that your human side was reacting to her tacky actions. I don't think that you owe her a card. You and God have settled it. There will come a time that you can let her know that she hurt your feelings. She was very insensitive. Big hugs to you. God loves you.

I received Happy Mail last week and am still happy.

Pouring down rain today. Floods all along the Ohio River. What a mess for those that live along the river. It's suppose to clear up tomorrow. It's like those spring rains have hit early. You'd think it was April.

Alvie, since you said nothing, you have nothing to apologize for. Do not feel like you need to send her a card. I'm sorry about the loss of your sister. I'll be very sad when those days come, for my two sisters.

Peace for you and your family.
