I'm trying to clean out some of the cards I've made that have been hanging around my desk and instead of putting these in my ebay store, I thought I'd ask if anyone would like to buy them. They are all blank instead, but very pretty on the outside. I've marked them down to an almost
"give away price" so just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested and I'll send you a paypal invoice! Thanks for taking a look.
Today I'm so busy working on projects that NEED to get done, but come back tomorrow and I'll have a peek at what's coming this week! LOTS of fun things on Wednesday from Whimsie Doodles and Thur from Deedee Digis!
Have a blessed day!

Finally a bit of good news. Barry was able to get a part-time job yesterday. It's only for 8 hrs a week at the Assisted Living Home near us, but it's a start in the right direction! He'll be working 4 hrs on Sat and 4 on Sun. I'm really hoping it helps him feel better about himself. He's so down about finding a real IT job and finishing up school now, that anything will be a help to him! I think he'll feel better too when he's making a bit of money instead of it all being on me. Speaking of me, I've listed these cards in group in my ebay store. I thought it might help to sell them in packs. They've been listed at dirt cheap. I need to raise some money by Friday to pay some bills that are due. You know, like my electric and water! I wish it were Christmas time so people would be in need of cards, but you work with what you have and it's a hot June week!

Deedee has created another fun set of images with this one! Bears are so much fun and this little guy is just perfect! Check out the link cause she's got a freebie you can try out! Please notice the ribbon. I found this last week at Hobby Lobby. I took Madelyn there on one of our "craft" outings. The ribbon was on 1/2 sale and I got 3 colors. It's so nice in person. The center feels like suede and I love the ruffles on the edges. I got yellow, green, and red, so you'll be seeing it a lot!Barry has an interview this afternoon for a part-time job at the assisted living place where our friend lives. Brain wasn't even expected to make it past January, but he has beaten the odds and is doing well. So well in fact, that he now is working where he lives! He's only in his mid 60's and used to being active. He's doing a lot of the planning for actives at the place. It's good for him. They were looking for someone to be at the front desk on Sat and Sun from 4-8 and he thought of Barry. Barry is interviewing today at 3. I know it's not a whole lot, but it's a start and I think Barry will feel a whole lot better with a job. Something to look forward to and build upon. I think he needs to feel like he's doing something to help out at home! Please keep him in your prayers for another day!Today is the wash. I was going to do it yesterday, but when I went into the laundry room, I found I didn't have enough stuff to finish all the wash, so why start! I just put up the first load. How can only two people have that much dirty clothes? I know it's hot down here, but really, wouldn't staying in PJ's everyday help? I need to work on some cards and upload for tomorrow. My last assignment with Whimsie Doodles. I can't believe six months has come and gone. WOW! Come back tomorrow and check it out!
JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW
I've added some cards to my ebay store that are on sale and a great buy if you're interested in stocking up instead of creating yourself!
Have a great day and stay cool!

Today I had to go have blood drawn for the medical study I'm doing. It won't be bad except that it's across town. I don't have to go for another 2 weeks, so that will be better! I need to do some wash, and a tiny bit of cleaning (ha, ha) and work in some DT projects. I can't believe I only have one project left to do for Whimsie Doodles! Then my six months will be ending! It's been such fun to work with all of the wonderful ladies on the team and I have learned so much. I will miss them all, but will continue to be a follower!

At school Barry is doing well. Next week is the big test. Toes and anything else will need to be crossed! The school told him about a job they were contacted about. He's interested. It just pays about 1/2 of what he used to make, but they want people fresh from school so they can train them how they want. Sounds good to us! Anything sounds good to us! Since I didn't win the lotto last night, job is next best thing!
Today it's dark and cloudy. I printed off some digi images to work. I really must do something today. Yesterday was a bust with work. I lost the MOJO somewhere. I hope it makes it back today! I did find a few pieces of pretty purple paper at the LSS. They are suppose to get some new MFT stamps in this weekend, but they think the one I want is on back order. They'll call if it comes in. Like I need another Pure Innocence girl!
Have a wonderful day!

Yes, you could say after PAPER, I do love the smell of fresh coffee brewing! Right up there near that is when you open the fresh can of coffee. Can you tell what I drinking now? You guys are so smart! Today I'm sharing a card that was made using a Inky Antics stamps along with a verse stamp that I've had awhile, but keep forgetting about. I don't know who made the inside stamp, but I thought it fit the two gals having a "get together"! The paper is from BG. I hate the fact that there are only 2 of each piece of paper in a 6x6 pad. There should be more!!
Today was fun day. We laid around this morning doing nothing until about 10. Then a nice breakfast of eggs and onions on a bagel, then we went out to NorthPark Mall. Barry wanted to see the groups that would be there for a "service" day. There were all types of organization's there who help families with special needs children. One of the one's Barry works with sometimes was there and he saw several of his friends. I was able to check out the craft goodies at Paper Source. I didn't buy anything, but they sure have some beautiful Japanese papers. I could only wish!
Tomorrow we're going to Madelyn's dance recital at 1, so I'm writing tonight instead. I hope to work on some projects in the morning, but you never know how that will work out. Sleep may call instead. I will have some fun news coming soon about something new I'm going to be doing. I can't tell you yet. I won't be for a while, but I know you'll love all the things I'll be doing! See, now you'll have to come back.
Take care friends, and thanks for coming back to my ramblings!
