Today, Lady Di and I went to church and then she treated me to breakfast at Family Affair. We decided that I would go over to her house, so she dropped me off and I rounded up some things to do. Tomorrow we are taking a sweatshirt class that Joann Dickow from Community Quilting is going to teach us at the church. So I worked on getting my fabric cut for it, and finished ripping apart the sweat shirt. You take a sweatshirt, and tear it all apart and turn it into a jacket. Di was watching the football game too. It was a marathon football day with the Packers playing first and then the Vikings which Di also wanted to watch as she wanted to watch Favre. We had supper together, I finished stitching this towel and headed home. I have all the rest of my stuff for tomorrow all packed up and ready to go. I will just need to make my lunch in the morning. Hope you all had a great weekend! Elaine

Hello! I just got back home a little while ago. Lady Di and I went to the Dells to put stuff in my booth. It needed straightening up. The cards were messed up and someone was messing with the tags on the pin cushions. That always happened at the flea market too so that is nothing new, and they are easy to quick put back together. After we were done there, we went to Baraboo to the Dollar Tree and found lots of goodies. Most of them will create more work for me, but I love crafting so it is fun work. We headed over to our favorite Chinese Buffet and had some great food. A quick stop at the Memory Bank and then we were on our way home. It was fun to have time to spend with my partner in crime. We haven't had much of that, the past few months. Either one of us or the other has been gone. So it was fun to have time to spend together today.

Hello! I am so happy that the wind has died down here. It is so good to have things back to normal. This is a card that I made up to show my stamping group with the Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper, Sweet Snow globe stamp, and greeting from Bells and Boughs.
This morning Sara and Ciera Ricci were over for a visit, and after they left I cut up all the designer paper from the 2nd designer series paper swap that I am having. Sixteen packages to cut up. Whew! I am glad that is all done. Di and I were talking on the phone most of the time I was doing it so that made the time go faster! I also got everything packed for tonight. Now I need to get in the shower and get ready for my stamping class tonight!

Man, is it windy here. I saw on the news tonight that we are having 50mph winds, and I sure believe it. It is definitely gusty outside. I was going to work in the garage this afternoon but decided against it as I was afraid that I might get hit by a flying object. I dragged a limb off of the driveway when I went out to get the mail. I got some cleaning done today so am happy about that. Lady Di was over this afternoon and we had a nice long visit. She brought me the Ande's chips I had ordered, so I just finished making the thin mint cookies with the Ritz crackers. I can't wait for the chocolate to harden so I can dig into them! YUM! YUM! I have been stitching on a towel this evening and catching up on some more of my TV programs. I finally have it up to 12 free hours on the DVR. I have a long ways to go! I really got behind on my TV watching the past month!
This is the never ending card that Colleen taught my stamping group while she was here. They call it never ending because you can just keep flipping and flipping it and there really isn't a start or stop to it. I consider the panel with the F on it the beginning. If you flipped it one more time, that is where you would be at again. It was a fun class, and everyone thought that it was pretty cool.

I went to bible study this morning, came home and slept an hour and a half. What a slug, but I was tired, and immediately fell asleep when my head hit the pillow. Naps seem to be the norm these days. I haven't accomplished too much today. I have been embroidering on a towel that I am going to give as a birthday gift, and watching TV while working on it for hours. The cats have liked it, they have been curled up right beside me on the bed. I did make some chicken enchilada's for supper tonight and did dishes. Sorted through some paper work this afternoon, stuff that had been thrown in a pile while Colleen was here. Just trying to play catch up, and find some motivation to do it!

I have been home, in the house since Thursday. I have been cleaning my craft room, cutting tags etc with the Big Shot, punching scraps, and stamped some cards. I actually have some things made ahead of time so I should be back to my regular posting now. I have had a lot of people in and out and figured I'd better get busy and post something today. You know it's bad, when your mother comes to check up on you as she has not heard anything out of you for days....(also known as you haven't posted on the blog!) Today I worked on a totally AWESOME project that I am going to be teaching a special class for. You're gonna love it! Have a great week! Elaine

We had a wonderful day in Milwaukee at the baptism today, I will tell you more about that later!

We have been busy, and the days are just flying. Soon it will be time for Colleen to go home. I can't believe how fast the time went. I will be sad when she goes, there is so much more that we would like to do and we are running out of time. Thursday we had a long fun day. We left at 8am and got home at 10:45. I am still trying to recover from it but it sure was fun. We went to 2 quilt shops, 2 thrift stores, a cheese factory, House on the Rock, and Colleen made a run into the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center. We ended the day with supper at Cracker Barrel. Yesterday, I rested most of the day, and Colleen stamped and played. I did a little bit towards evening. Today I did some laundry and a bunch of stamping. I showed Colleen how to color with my Copics and she enjoyed doing that and wants to get some. She also liked the Bind-It-All and the Circle Scissor Plus. Wait till you see the adorable card that I made with that today! Well, I need to head out and hit the bed. The Ambien should be kicking in soon....lol It takes about a half hour to work, and I am out like a light!

Today, I disconnected my Vonage account and activated my new cell phone. My phone number will remain the same. I have free incoming calls, after 7 pm and weekends. If I happen to call you during the day and keep jabbering....remind me to have you call me back as I am sure it is going to take some time for me to remember that I do not have unlimited minutes like I did with Vonage. I will have 1000 but I am sure they could go fast if I am not careful. For those of you who know me, you know that I like to talk! LOL My mother always says that the worse punishment she could give me when I got into trouble was to make me go to my room and not be able to talk to anyone. I am definitely a people person!
Beth stopped in today, and Colleen and Beth helped me finish packing up the stall, and they loaded everything into the van, and the stuff to go to Practical Cents, in Beth's truck. We dropped that off on our way home. I am so glad to have that all finished and the weather today was beautiful for doing it. Beth scooted home, and Colleen and I were making supper when Carol stopped in for a quick visit. We ate, and then decided to work on unloading the van. We got it done and both of us were wiped out and hit the beds for awhile. I was hurting pretty bad, but am so glad to have it all done. I could not have done it with out the two of them, it would have taken me weeks with all the lifting that needed to be done. A BIG thanks to the both of YOU! You are the best! Tomorrow we are going to have a play day and stamp! Have a great day! Elaine
