Christmas Cards


I know it’s September but I’ve been working on making my own cards for the last few months.
I hadn’t done any for awhile but the other night I had an inspiration. The card here is the result of that. I love this background stamp and these were just too quick and easy. I would also like to try it in the Cranberry and see how that looks.

Would love to hear your thoughts and opinions about it.

OK – I know that I have been slackin’

My signagture line says it’s been updated….but it’s not. I know, I’m sorry. I don’t have any real good excuse. I did get sick for almost 2 weeks and that really kicked my butt. I’m feeling better and think I might actually live now. But, really I don’t have any good reason.

So, lots going on with us here. Ayla started ballet last weekend. Actually it’s tap and ballet. She did a great job during her first class. Jumped right in and followed along so well. She was so cute. They don’t let parents in the classroom during the class so I couldn’t really get good pictures but I think next week is an observation week. They take the classes all year long and then next June there will be a recital. I remember doing tap and ballet as a child, so I think it’s very cool for Ayla to be doing it now.

Tomorrow we are getting new carpet in our house. We choose a beige berber carpet that I think we will be very happy with. It sure beats this ugly blue/green crap we have now. I also think it’s going to make the whole place look bigger and brighter. The living room is so dark now….anything will help.

OK DSS – I’ve updated my Blog now…..thanks for asking about it. I’ll keep trying to stay on top of it.

Another Year – but so many cards


My mailman must wonder what in the world was going on there this week. In the last few days, my box has been flooded with cards from my SCS friends. Really, these were gorgeous cards and I am just so touched that so many people took the time to send them to me.

Please check them out and give these ladies some much deserved praise!

It was a Journey

Like reliving Jr High and High school all over again. Flashes of memories and things that happened so long ago I thought they were long gone out of my brain. A few sad ones, but mostly happy memories, of friends, love and life as a teenager.
Steve Perry wasn’t with Journey is round and that was a bit disappointing. But none the less they put on a great show.
Def Leppard rocked the house! I could not believe how good they sounded and then energy they still had after all of the these years! Songs I had not listed to in a decade came flooding back to me and I was awesome!! I felt 15 again, jumping and singing and dancing my heart out. It was so good for my soul.

Seeing 2 concerts in 1 month was huge for me. I have not been to a show in ages. But, I’ve had such a great time that Ticketmaster has become one of my most visited sites on the internet.
In fact, Miss Mary and my boys and I are thinking of catching The Who when they roll into town next month.

I took some pics but have not downloaded them just yet. I’ll post them sometime over the weekend.
