Good morning ladies---we didn't go to the gym cuz hubby has a dr apt. Yesterday I worked on cutting out the flower dies to make the metal flowers. Then I played with the alcohol inks to color the pieces. My problem is that the dyes haven't dried and I cannot find out online how to do this. I'm trying the heat gun next. Anyway feels great to get those creative juices flowing again.

Andrea: So glad you had time to spend with your friend! My MIL was a mean disgusting woman who took joy in insulting me and walking away. I hope yours isn't that bad.
Anna: Snow again!!! Holy cow...don't you wonder if one day it will snow then the next be 85 deg? We have that left lane law here too but it's never enforced.
Ashley: are you still on days off?
Cathe: I PM'd you my email address. I saw a couple of stamps I want but I need to let the bank balance recoup from all the spending I've been doing!!
Cheryl: every get that smoothie you were talking about on FB?
Danielle: Hubby home yet?
Denise: Oh, I thought from the LOs he was a newborn! My bad! What a cool idea to have a special place for the babies to play! Do you have Christopher every day too?
Kimberly: Idaho is a lesson in different landscapes. Personally I love Northern Idaho and Boise is awesome too. Glad you are getting to have a family reunion.

Off to see if I can get this project done!

It's probably for dinner tonight too!

Terry, it is also National Colorado Day too!

Cheryl, we don't have a Starbucks here but there is a new juice and smoothie shop opening up soon here. I am excited about it because I do love a good smoothie!

Hello to all and have a great day!

Danielle- Congratulations to your sister! He is adorable.

Andrea- oh how nice you got to spend time with your bff. That is priceless. Glad to hear MIL was better with the aunt around. Was that her sister?

Anna- Grilled Cheese is my go to sandwich.

Cheryl- Your pocket letter is adorable!! I love the nautical/vintage feel of it.

People are leaving Illinois. I've known two who have gone to Colorado. I was through Wolf Creek Pass when I was 12. It was gorgeous.

Terry- I got your address all changed. Sounds like you are having fun trying out alcohol inks and metal. Can't wait to see your creation.

I hope to scrap today.
Have a nice day!

I did get one flower made by hit or miss! Never got the alcohol re-inkers to dry so I took it off and played with the Copics which dried beautifully in a few seconds. So I wonder what the heck the difference is since Copics are alcohol inks!

Anna: I love grilled cheese!!! Especially when it's fried in garlic butter!! It must be Colo day because it's the date it became a state. I'm guessing!
Cathe: Thanks! I'll be looking for the catalog. Wolfcreek pass is not only gorgeous but so dangerous. But then it ends in Telluride which is stunning landscape & mountains. The beetle kill in the mtns is sad but we noticed that where evergreens were there is an abundance of aspens now.
Cheryl: your pocket page is very cute!
Danielle: hope all is well with your cousin.

Hello to all---have to go to Lowes so I need to scoot!

Terry sorry your mil was so horrible. Mine thinks only her opinion matters and that everyone wants to hear it. Then she constantly screams, cusses, and belittles my fil in front of everyone and anyone.

The Aunt is fil sister and a wonderful person. Her son just moved to town here a few months ago. He eats at our house at least four times a week. sometimes more and i do his laundry with everyone elses lol. Him and dh like to work on cars and stuff together. Its nice to have family close and he helps with projects around the house.

Danielle congrats on becoming a new aunt.

Terry that is really weird about the alcohol ink. I had a few but i just did not like using them.

I have felt so un creative lately. I think its just because i am so busy right now. Hopefully it will come back.

Good morning!!

I slept late..........8:30!! It must have been all that fresh air I had yesterday. I walked in the morning at a local park. Then we were outside at Van's track meet for 2 1/2 hrs.

the track meet was the 6th graders very first! Doug had to go find Van and his friend because they weren't at the sand pit for the long jump. He didn' t do too badly in that. He was last in the hurdles. His team was last in the relay. We didn't stay for the 200 hurdles. Doug said he was one tired puppy after all of that. It was cold by the end of the meet.

Danielle- Hope everything is ok with your cousin.

Terry- that flower is gorgeous!!!
Being stuck here in the middle of the country, I hadn't heard that beetles killed many of the evergreens in Co.

Cheryl- enjoy the kiddos.

Only thing on the agenda is feed the fish.

Morning-- Steve left at 6AM so I am unsupervised for 3 days!! Planning a shopping trip today as soon as I get ready.

Andrea: I just saw the weather and it seems there a ferocious storm headed for the Midwest with NE getting 18 in of projected snow. Global warming huh?
Anna: Thank you---and Happy 13th to you as well! I was going to use them on a wall in the trailer. Nothing heavy --ie 3lbs or better--can be hung cuz there is any studs. I was also practicing because I also have to make one out of aluminum for an outdoor horseshoe welcome wreath that I'm donating to the auction of our national event.
Cathe: I hated track as a kid! I'm a toadstool in size and can't jump or run. Good luck to Van in future meets. When you went over Wolfcreek Pass were you a kid? Did you see Telluride?
Cheryl: enjoy the kids! I got my 2 stamps yesterday and want to play!! I'm putting together projects to work on while we are away for a month. Those are coming with me!
Danielle: did you hear how your cousin is doing?

Hi to everyone! Don't walk under ladders or cross a black cat!!!

'morning

One of those nights where I couldn't fall to sleep. I finally fell asleep at 3:30.
I messed around on fb while awake. I came across two gals giving book reviews. The liked The ADDRESS by Fiona Davis. I really liked that book so I'm figuring if they liked it, I'll like the other books they reviewed. Now to get to the library.

Cheryl- lovely tag. I have that doll.
Did you get storms last night?

It is so windy!!!

Andrea- sorry you got snow. UGG.

Terry- sounds like you have a lot of plans.
Did you go shopping?
No, I didn't see Telluride. I hear it is beautiful.
How big is the flower you made? I thought it was little and would fit on a card, but if you are hanging it, it must be fairly large.
I chuckled that you are going to be "unsupervised" for 3 days.
When I was unsupervised I thought I'd have more fun and scrap the days away but that didn't happen. LOL

Have a good day everyone.

Morning! Dog duty done, coffee drank, phone call to Bff and here I am.
I did go on a shopping extravaganza! Had a ball. Drove 63 mi one way to the nearest Hobby Lobby just to see it. They had albums on sale for $10 ea, a pad of light cardstock for $5, and home décor items like I've never seen before in one place. Apparently the "farm look" is really popular right now!!! I went to the jewelry store (uhoh!) and updated my wedding band with a new diamond---don't tell Steve! Went to Macy's and bought 5 new summer shirts so I can toss the 7 yr old ones I currently wear. All in all a good day!!!!

Andrea: are you still getting snow? We have so many friends moving over to Idaho right now. I was talking to hubby about it too. WA gov is going nutso ---seems to think he's a dictator. Gotta get outa here!
Anna: Morning!
Ashley: where are you?????
Cathe: The base of the flower I made is 3 inches. I listed it below. What I'm thinking of doing is making several flower shapes in this technique then putting them on wire stems, tie it all together with a bow and hang the bouquet in the trailer. I was wondering if you were getting that huge snow storm that is hitting the mid-west.
Cheryl: adorable tag! My sister could use one too. She has up & down days since the divorce. I do think your techniques on mixed media came out great!

Hope everyone has a great Saturday! It's time to go play---

We aren't getting snow. It is very windy though. It moved our big round outdoor table and chairs to the middle of the deck!! They are all covered with a canvas cover expecially made for patio furniture. So everything kind of moved together. The cover remained on because Rum puts boards on top of it. One chair was tipped over, but it's ok.

Over on the Rockin Scrppin Grans thread one of our member in Nebraska really got hit with snow. They are ranchers and lost two calves. The cows are giving birth and her DH and SIL didn't get to them until it was too late.

Terry- Oh MY YOU were not missing DH very much were you?
Yep the farmhouse look is in. Rum was in HL with me and called it "country". I had to correct him and say it is now called "farmhouse". I like the look. I have bought some galvanized things and wooden signs. Love HL's sales.

gotta go to the neighbor's for a drink. I don't wanna go. It's cold and windy. I just want to stay home. Plus I don't drink unless it's a Pina Colatta ---see I don't even know how it is spelled. or a Martguerita. I'll take a can of Pepsi over with me.

Danielle- so sorry you aren't able to have a baby. My niece is going through that. They are trying to adopt. They thought they'd have a baby by now. A lot of young mother's are keeping their babies nowadays because of all the support they get. I don't know what to tell you.

Was it Ashley's weekend to work? I don't remember.

Have a nice evening.

We hit 80 yesterday and it was gorgeous outside. Today we are under Flood Warning and tomorrow we are expecting snow. Mother Nature hates us!

Ashley, where u b?

Cathe, did you drink your pepsi or did you get your pina colada?

Danielle, I feel your pain. My daughter and her husband cannot have children either. Makes me really sad.

Denise, love all of your new layouts. Love that egg overlay/bg on that one layout!

Terry, I love your kind of shopping spree! And I love HL too!

I want to let you all know that I am going to be off the grid for the next week or so. I am headed into the hospital for a hysterectomy on Tuesday. Monday is a day of appointments for blood work, ekg, lung xray, and a dr apt. The surgery was scheduled in February but I did not get approval from my insurance until Friday afternoon. I expected it to be rescheduled so I am now scrambling to get the house in order, bills paid, grocery shopping, etc. For those of you that pray, please keep me in your prayers because I am very nervous about this procedure. No clue what to expect afterwards.

Hope you all have a great week!

Good morning!!

Anna- thank you for confiding in us. I got a sense that something was amiss as you weren't very chatty. Of course I will pray that everything goes well.
Do you have an IPad? I know you'll need a lot of rest, you'll need something to do.

Cheryl- the neighbor MIllie wanted to have some of the neighbor's over. Yes, Rum went. Of course I had a good time. I'm like that. I don't want to do something, go, and then have a great time.
I've been like that since I was little.

The weather is awful almost everywhere. Please Mother Nature send some seasonal temperature.

Have a nice day everyone.

Denise- I enjoyed all your new LOs.

Hey ladies: I got the flowers done so all I now need to do is to fine something to use as stems. DS#1 in MN texted a picture of his patio and the furniture which has approx. 18 in of snow accumulated on it. His caption was "Spring in MN"!! Cracked up.

Anna: I'm so sorry you have to go thru that! The surgery is actually much less invasion with less down time than say 10 yr ago. I had mine about 2 yrs ago and was amazed. I'll pray for you but I have every faith that you'll whiz thru this!!!
Ashley: I hope you are ok!
Cathe: I don't drink very often either and never to get smashed! Glad you had a great time tho---I always do too without the booze. That had to be some wicked wind!!
Cheryl: have fun! Has Zoey ever played outside in the rain? Kids here do it all the time especially like soccer games and some baseball too.
Danielle: I am so sorry for you as I'm sure a child would bring you great joy. However, be the best auntie to the babies and they'll love you like your own.
Denise: What awesome LOs---and that egg overlay is amazing! Is that a Silhouette?

I was up til 3AM --like Cathe before me--so I slept in late and so now it's time to get going!!!

Hi! It's been crazy here recently...we were getting ready to throw my grandmother a 90th birthday party. Her birthday is actually March 31st but couldn't get any reservations for a large group at a restaurant until April so we had her party on Saturday. There were about 28 people there...mostly my grandmother's friends from Senior Citizens and a few family members. The hardest part was keeping it all a surprise since my grandmother lives with us. She's kinda nosey and will look through things so we had to hide favors and invitations in lots of different places. She also has this friend who really likes her red wine and we were afraid that, eventually, she was going to spill the beans. BUT everything went off without a hitch and my grandmother was well and truly surprised!

Good morning!!

We have snow on the ground. You can still see grass, but yet there's snow trying to cover it!!!

Ashley- how nice your Grandma was surprised! Good for you and the family for pulling it off. We were wondering where you were.

Danielle- It's hard to think someone could be sunburned since we've been so cold and cloud covered. Hope it doesn't hurt.

Cheryl- I went to sleep right away last night.

My Silhouette really came in handy Sunday evening. Charity needed lettering cut for Nev's graduation party. We cut a lot of lettering for two banners. It was fun because usually I'm cooking and Charity is on the porch with Rum and Doug. She was amazed at what the Silhouette could do.

Hugs Anna as you get ready for surgery.

Have a nice day.

Cathe: It is just crazy with snow everywhere now! My BFF is amazed at my craft room and all the stuff. Makes her laugh!
Cheryl: Well, if you don't play in the rain I guess that's a great reason for Zoey not too!! Hahaha!
Danielle: great news that the garden boxes are ready.
Denise: how is your garden doing?

I'm going to keep putting together pieces of cards & coloring to take with me. Happy Monday all!!!

Terry we are still getting snow. I know a lot of people fed up with wa and California are moving to idaho.

Anna i will be thinking of you.

My dd got sunburned on sat. It was cold overcast and no sun to be seen. That is typical for her. she will also burn thru her clothes. I can put sunscreen on her five times and she is still burned. We just have to keep applying and watching her.

Ashley i am glad to hear you were able to pull off the surprise for your grandma.

DD and i have been doing diamond painting together. Has anyone herd of it. It paint by number with little colored jewels. They are all sparkly and shiny when you are done. DD loves them so i bought one so we could do it together. we sit and talk . Its nice to find an art project she likes.

Garden is going well, at least what I have in the ground. Too chilly for watermelon and cucumbers and okra still.

Yes, the egg bg is silhouette. I was crazy and backed all those open spaces. Crazy but I like how it turned out.

Anna, hugs. Yes, just rest and heal and before you know it you will feel SO much better. So much better. The first couple days are hard but then it gets a bunch easier.

Hi! Working 9-5 on the third floor this week. I keep getting these weird shifts on my schedule. I'm starting to think I made someone angry and they don't want me in the upstairs lab LOL! I'm off tomorrow, though, so I guess that's a good thing. I sort of wished I was off today though because it was miserable and cold and rainy and disgusting this morning. I was seriously soaked by the time I got to the lab.

Cathe- We're getting rain instead of snow but we had hail and freezing ran last night. Can't it just be warm from now on?!

Terry- Thanks! I was one of the lucky ones at the studio...some of the other older students and staff who took pictures the same morning I did, their photos somehow got lost. I got all my shots though.

Andrea- I saw those in Michaels. I wanted to pick one up but I didn't have any place to work on it.

Cheryl- Good luck at work!

Good morning!!

Andrea- Anytime you find something a daughter will do with you is a good thing. I bet my DGD would like those. I'll have to look for them at M's.

Ashley- Love seeing you in your element. Sure glad your photos didn't get lost.

Thinking of Anna. Hope she is as good as new very soon.

The sun is shining!!
Haven't seen it in days.
I guess it's been so cold that we forget the sun is still up there and can burn us. LOL

Have a nice day.

Diamond painting, not heard if it. Will check it out.

Hope Anna is doing ok with surgery today.

Ashley, maybe you are dependable so they are doing that, depending on you.

Danielle, too soon to plant for your area. Snow is not conducive to growing as you know. Hope it warms up soon. It's too chilly here for some crops too. Long cold snap for this year.

Hi ladies! Spent yesterday putting all the parts & pieces of a few cards together to take on the trip. I'll assemble it all there. Steve would kill me if I took a bunch of supplies inc the die cutting machine!!! Also have about 50 Copics ready and some coloring projects too.

Anna, I hope you are home today from the hospital & recouping. Sending hugs!!!
Andrea: I've never heard of that but now I want to go investigate it.
Danielle: yep its way too early and way too cold for tiny little plants! Even the flowering trees here are suffering!
Denise: Even tho the egg bg might have been hard it was the crowning glory on that LO!!

I need to call the vet and get angry because they aren't sending my flea RX thru to Alivet. I'm about ready to find a new vet outfit. Then--and this will crack you up---I have to get ready for a nail apt that I THINK I have but I'm not sure and it's not written down. Oh the joys of memory loss & old age!!!

I bought all our diamond art on amazon. So many different ones to choose from. DD had done a rose, the Cheshire cat and has the for seasons coming soon. I did a light house and am now working on the rose from beauty and the beast. I have a horse farm scene on the way. I just make sure they are shipped from amazon . I dont have an m's close enough.

Ashley my dd does the paint by number app. like you do and its really calming for her. The diamond art is the real life version. you just follow the numbers and dont think to hard. It helps dd in the evening to decompress and we talk. I really think you would like it. We do it at the kitchen table. Just make sure you buy a bunch of snack bags or small ziplocks to keep each color in.

Its back to sunny today after snow yesterday. I start back to five days a week at work next week. I really hope the nice weather continues.

Hi! Had today off since I worked the weekend. I spent part of it waiting at the doctor's office (to get a prescription refilled) and the rest hanging around the house reading. Then I went to dance class where we're starting our second tap dance. That wouldn't be a big deal except our dress rehearsal is in like a month and we have maybe a minute of this dance done!

Cathe- What is this sun you speak of? We're back to that hazy shade of winter gray...even though it's spring!

Andrea- I'll have to look up these diamond art kits because I really love the color by number apps. They're about the only thing that keeps me from completely going bonkers when I'm stuck at 61st street.

Good morning!

Thinking of Anna and hope she is doing ok.

Andrea thanks for telling me where you got your diamond art. I forgot to look at M's yesterday. Do I put diamond kits in the search box? I guess I should see if Rayn would even like to do it before I get her some.

Cheryl- A whole new world just opened up for you with the new printer!!

It was sunny 20 minutes ago but now is overcast. We are supposed to get freezing rain, sleet and snow. I will worry so about everyone getting home from work and school.

Ashley- you have so much experience in dance, do you help choreograph the dances?

We generally don't plan until May 6th in zone 6. Of course I only plant tomatoes.

Terry- will you be checking in with us while you're gone? I forget -where you are going???

Just got home from the gym and now it's off to do the big grocery buy out. Hubby decided that he's coming with me to BFF's this weekend and we are testing out the trailer to be sure it all works.

Cathe: I will be checking in for sure. We are going to Sedalia, MO which I see is in the NW corner. From there (after 2 weeks of dog trials) we will head north to spend a few days with Aaron in MN then home. So we will be gone for about 4-5 weeks!
Andrea: I'm going to look at the diamond art too. Thanks for the list of digi places! sometimes the one site you love is shut down and now there's more to see!
Cheryl: a new printer? Yeah!!!
Ashley: I've always wondered if you choreographed the dances too with all the experience you have
Anna: Hoping every new day makes things easier for you. Miss ya and hope all is going well!
Denise: if you need something to do I can give you some of my list!!!
Hi Danielle! We go to the gym first thing and I demanded that since I wouldn't interrupt the day to go workout.

Off & running.....

We have a bit of snow on the ground and it is cold. It's supposed to start warming up today.

My favorite G0-To store is closing. ....Bergner's. My Bff and I meet there at least once a week. We are sick about it.

Have a nice day ladies.

Denise-- Sure hope you didn't loose your Silhouette files!

My Bff and i went to Bergner's. We each bought a pair of shoes. The lady let us use a $20 off $50 or more coupon, but we don't think she was supposed to. Later Carole tried to use a coupon on a shirt and they said she couldn't. Could no longer use the Bergner's credit card, but that was no problem.

Cheryl- we have a Burlington coat factory but it is by D ick's in a strip -type mall. I never go there. I did when it first opened. It is by Jo Ann fabric so I don't know why I don't pop in.

It's sunny and it may have hit 50*. It's 48 now at 4:30.

Have a nice evening everyone.

DH enjoyed his birthday dinner at olive garden with the local grandkids. I had the chicken guarding. Love it. It has a light lemon butter sauce with a ruffled pasta and veggies - peas, broccoli, red bell pepper, and zucchini . Delicious.

Good morning!!!

I have been scrapbooking probably for 9 years give or take. I really got into it about 5 years ago and have been addicted ever since. Its very hard to find places where i live to scrapbook I have a couple of crops i flip between but some can get very cliquey. Those I tend to stay away from, I just like to go meet new people and have a good time!

Hi! Went to help at the dance studio today. I've been put in with all the very young classes now (I was with the middle level girls on Saturday mornings) and it's pretty much barely controlled chaos. Since their instructor got herself fired (she attacked the studio owner), their dances were left half done or not done at all and we have dress rehearsal in about a month!

Cathe- I don't coreograph dances at all at the dance studio. The studio owner doesn't allow me to. I coreograph dances for Girl Scouts, though!

Denise- I hope you don't lose your files! I had a virus do that to me once and it killed me.

Glad to see you Anna! Thanks for stopping in. Hope you see this even if you aren't up for chatting yet.

I couldn't sleep last night either! I know I saw 3:30 on the clock.

Ashley- It's too bad the owner won't let your creativity show. The Scouts are lucky to have you.

Alana- I'm pretty sure none of us go to crops. We tend to cheer-on each other her in the forum. There just aren't any around anymore. Also retailers are chopping their scrapbooking items from their shelves. This is a good place to order from though.

Have a nice day.

Hi! Finally had a nice day here so I...sat inside and read LOL! My mom wanted to go out for a while but then she got caught up in helping my sister clean her apartment so that end any plans we had. This week is going to be weird...I'm 8-4 two days and then 10-6 the rest of the week. I just need to make it to Saturday because, then, I'm going to see "Avengers: Infinity Wars" and I am RIDICULOUSLY EXCITED for this movie!

Anna- Glad to hear you're feeling better!

Cathe- The studio owner won't let me choreography because I'm not very good at following her rules. She's very much into giving little kids dances that are just too hard (lots of acting and formations and things like that) and I disagree with it. My Daisy Scouts, for talent show, are doing a very simple routine to The Go-Go's "We Got the Beat."

Cheryl- Sorry to hear your husband is sick!

Aww Cheryl-- Hope and pray Karyol heals quickly. Sure hope you got some sleep too.

Ashley- I bet the Girl Scout dance will be cute. Is it hard having hours that vary?

Anna- Hope you are getting better each day.

Denise- Darling photos of Sadie on FB.

Danielle- are the boxes done? Is it too early to plant? It is here.

Do any of you have the photo editing program called ACDSEE?
I've always used Picasa but it is no longer supported by Google.
Every time I upload pictures it now uploads everything on the card rather than just the new prints. I don't know how to fix it.
Maybe it has nothing to do with Google not supporting Picasa. I don't know.

I sent card to Jeannie and Katy asking how they were. I told them we missed them and to please return.

It's is a bit cloudy but feels like Spring.

Have a nice day everyone.
Cheryl- keep us posted.
