It's Friday!

Big Yea for Friday! Another day of creating and even posting on my blog! I have set some kind of record this week---posting several days! I just love how this card turned out. So cute and so very true!
I work tomorrow for 4 hours and then I'm off until Wednesday. Barry is off tomorrow and Sunday and then he works on Monday. For the month of September he was given 80 hours of work! Double what he thought he would get, so we won't miss the extra for the other part time job, at least for the coming month!
It was a costly night yesterday. Our son Evan's AC went out and we gave him the money for that! In addition to that we added more so he'd have the extra for his wedding fund. I love being about to help out from some of the money we received from my FIL's estate. Life can be good at times!
I better get my body going in the direction of the kitchen to start dinner. Don't know what it's going to be, but let's just say I sent about 100 at the store today, so there better be something good!

Wasting The Day Away!

Today is my day off and so far I have NOthing to show except the crumbs in my bed from my mid-morning snack! I have been very lazy! At least my body has. My mind has been very busy thinking about some new cards to create. It's just when I see the cards still in my Etsy store, I wonder why should I make something else new that will sit and look pretty right back at me! Crazy, I know!
Barry is working the rest of the week, and I have off tomorrow. I may and see my baby Coco and talk to her. She gives all the love any Grandma could want. All I have to do is take her to the drive-thru at M's, see the ducks at the park, and give her a treat when we get home! She's easy to make happy!
It's been awhile since I've felt a little down, but the last few days I've noticed I've turned inward some, and I really have to work on that before I fall over the cliff again. I have one more day of work this week. It's Saturday and only for 4 hours, then I'm off til Wednesday, so maybe I can get the rest my body and mind seem to need right now and then be my usual self!
Have a wonderful day!

Smile, It's Only Tuesday!

I know, it's not the end of the week yet, but it should be! Yesterday was going to be a really nice short day of work, and it ended up a long busy one instead! Someone was begging for more hours and I was happy to give some away for yesterday, but then she called about 11 yesterday to say she had a "backache" and could work! Needless to say, I had to finish up my long shift! So that was the lemons, but the lemonaid was that I had my yearly review, and I got a nice raise! So there, to the boo Gods that were laughing at me yesterday! I can't believe at the end of this week I'll have worked at my job a year! Where has the time gone!
Is there a sweet card or what? ONly answer if you think it is! Please feel free to leave a comment or something---I'm beginning to think I'm not loved anymore!
Well now I have to run and get ready for another funfilled day of work at Market Street, and then home to make dinner!

OMG, It's Monday Again!

How does it happen every week? It seems just when I start enjoying my Sunday off, Monday comes along and I have to go back to work! Not fair, and just when my creating MOJO seems to have returned! I love how it card turned out! A fun new verse and a nice new digi! YOu got to love how it all came together!
It seems all my side of the family is now coming in the Thursday before the wedding. Deb from FL, her son and DIL from MA, Clare and her gang from NY, and my brother and his boys from MD! I just love it when a plan comes together!
Well, I'm off to work. Barry is working all week at the now only place he'll be working. It's a nice change to have some time to myself before to create and then I'm only working a short day. YEA for me!
Have a wonderful day!

I Love Halloween!

I know, it's not even September yet, but I'm in Fall Mode! I'm happy to be in any creative mode these days! I've had a "power outage" this summer, but now I'm getting back in the swing! This charmer was in my Etsy store, but it's now gone too, along with several other Halloween cards. Not to worry, more on the way!
I've had another busy week with work and watching Madelyn. Today was our last day to enjoy her company this week. I go back to work tomorrow and Grandpa is working his last weekend at his 1st part time joy! He gave notice an on the first it will be his last day. He's going to make his "back-up" part time job his first starting next week. I know it's going to work out for the best from him.
We haven't done too much in the way of getting things done for the wedding yet. I still have time, and I'm sure I'll still be saying that next month too!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Start Thinking Fall!

Yes, it's time to start planning for the Fall season! I love everything Halloween so this was an easy fix for a hot day in Dallas! Digi papers, Paper Schooes, Paper Trey. All goodness used! I added several new cards to the store today, so hop over and take a look!
Another week to work some long hours is ahead for me. Monday I work 7, then Thursday and Saturday, another long day! The good thing is that I'm off the other days this week. I'll need it to recover my feet and back!
Madelyn is coming over several days to visit this week also. On Tuesday she'll have to go to the hair lady with me. I'm getting color and cut. I'm going to be looking so sexy---no laughing in the peanut gallery! We have no other plans this week, just chillin'!
Have a wonderful week!

Yea! It's Finally Friday!

It's been a long week! Madelyn has been at our house most of the week, bright and early! And Grandma is tired! I've been working as well, so Grandpa has had to share in the joy of a 9 year! A friend of her brother is babysitting this afternoon when I go off to work, so that will end my time for this week. She'll be back again on my days off next week!
I heard from my brother this week that he is coming to the wedding. Yesterday it was just him and his two younger sons. Then at 8 this morning he called to let me know that his older son and family will be joining us! They have the sweetest little baby girl and his first grand baby, so I'm thrilled they all will be attending! I don't know how is going to handle knowing some of the people he invited are really coming! I think he was hoping some wouldn't show---silly boy!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Just Another Fun DAy!

Good morning Saturday! What a week! I worked all week and then one my day off, yesterday, we spent the whole day at the car dealership! We took our car in this week to have some work done. It was leaking water somewhere, and when they thought they had it fixed, they blew the engine up instead! Now nobody wants to say that it was their fault! It never had a "knocking" problem until they had the car, but we had to decide if we were going to buy a new car or put a new engine in the old one yesterday! The price of a newer used car was just too much to pay! The payments would be greater then I wanted to pay, and for 6 years no less! I could never stop working at that rate! We finally went to dinner at 9 and made the choice to just fix the old car! Yes, we'd still have a car with lots of miles on it, but since Barry baby's the car anyway, it seems to be a better choice for us right now.
So that's how my weekend off started! I'm off until Monday and I plan to do nothing else that makes me feel bad! I want to play in my creation station, swim in the pool and just be lazy!
The car I'm showing today is made using lots of scraps from other cards, but I love how it turned out. It flew out of the store, thanks to my must loyal of friends, who had to add it to her collection! Thank you Pat, as always! I love how customers become friends! It's the best thing going!
On another note, my family is making their plans to come to Texas! They are going to start arriving the Wednesday night before the wedding. My most loved cousin in coming in to spend a whole day with me by herself, then on Thursday night my sister and all her gang are coming in as well! My two best niece's are coming on Friday and my BIL too! It's all starting to come together and I'm over the top with joy about that!
Well, I'm off to drink another cup of coffee and enjoy the day! Thanks for coming around to check on me.

Remember Me?

I didn't want anyone to think I was lost forever on the computer, but instead I've just been taking a much needed break from the craft world! When our computer went down and we had to buy a new one, it took it as a sign that I needed a that break too. I've been really slow at creating this summer and I have to admit I really didn't miss it, but now it's going to be time to get back on the horse and do something! As always, it's the something that I wonder about!
Yesterday Tina, Cassie, and I went to Mandy's shower. Cassie is my Grandson Justin's girlfriend. She's a lovely young woman, and I was so glad to finally meet her. Mandy's shower was held at a long time friend of hers. As you can see, we played games! I am not a big game player, or even a small game player, but I was a good sport and went along with it! The girls were having a pool party about the shower and since I had worked all morning, I was so happy that my son Larry and Madelyn came to pick me up! Tina stayed and I think I got the better deal! The kids came to our place and we went swimming for a while and then meet Barry for dinner! What a wonderful ending to the day!
Today I'm going to meet the ladies to look again for a dress for the wedding. Mandy's mom along with a friend of the family, Kaye, that I really like, will be joining us! Lunch is on them too!
Well, I think I really need a shower and another cup of coffee before I start my day. Thank you for coming back another time or two!
