Where has the time gone....

...I'll tell you where...FACEBOOK! Ever since I became a member I just haven't had/taken the time to blog. Facebook is so easy and such a great way to connect with everyone in your life from the past to the present. I must get back to blogging soon...very soon!

New Cake Pic

This is a shoebox cake I made for a co-worker's birthday celebration. Yep, just like me, she loves shoes! The box and package are all cake - the shoe is fondant. It was fun to make, but I'll never be a cobbler!

Hot Older Babes!!!

Wellllll, at least we like to think so! This is my two wonderful friends from "Up North", Shelley and Linda. Last year we met for a girls weekend in the mountains (and my family home) of Western North Carolina. This picture was taken at Biltmore House. If you haven't been to those mountains you are really missing out! And, if you don't have some great friends - you are truly missing out! I'm quite blessed!

A Good Read

I love to read and always have a book I'm reading close at hand (I hate waiting-it's such a waste of time without a good book to occupy your time). I just finished this one and if you haven't read it yet - get to the library and pick it up. This thought provoking book (fiction) is excellent...and reminds us of how lucky/spoiled we are!

Time Does Fly!!!

Wow, it’s been weeks since I last blogged (or played on Facebook!). That’s an indication of how busy I’ve been - having a great time with all the recent activities I’ve been enjoying. In addition, I’ve been swamped with projects at my job. I used to go into the office early and blog a little before my work day began. Lately, I’ve still been going in early, but it’s to work (what’s up with that???). In light of economy and job lay offs – I’m fortunate to have a position, love my co-workers (some are great friends) and to actually like my job a lot.

So…here’s the catch up!

Yard Crawl
Our “Longhorn” friends had a “Yard Crawl”. Just another name for a great party! We had too much fun! I laugh the most in my life with this crowd of entertaining personalities. Everyone should be so fortunate!

My scrap friends and I hosted CSR (Creative Scrap Retreat). This was an overnight training/learning event that was a truly wonderful experience (with great food!). Each of us provided supplies and taught a class on a different crafting technique. Look at the pics of my projects! Jamie taught us the cute, cute, butterfly, picture frame project (quick, easy and lovely!). Debra instructed us in the art of binding and other techniques making the “LOVE” photo album (it’s so pretty and I don’t even have the pictures in yet!). Chere’s a year in photos Memories scrap album is a huge and fabulous project – I’m not even close to being finished, but you can get the drift from the images (I love decoupage!). Judy taught a Photoshop class that was very informative and gave us great ideas and training that we will use forever! My class was a card kit class – everyone knows I love to make my own cards! Everything came in the kit and then I added some embellishments and a little covered box to hold the finished notes. Add in great food, awesome goody bags (hello - matching pj's!) and a lot of laughing and it equals one delightful experience.
And, please believe me, the photos don't even come close to capturing how each excellent each poject really looks!

The Children on Easter Sunday

My grandchildren got to ride a horse, ride the tractor and play with colored chicks and ducks. Not to mention, an Easter Egg Hunt at Serenbe and another one at a party next door. Too much fun!
