What a year it has been! I am not going
to say it was the best of years, but it wasn't
the worst either. The good part is nobody
close to me has gone over to the other side,
and for that I am so grateful! My health
has been rather good, except for the occasional
toothache, but if that's all I have to gripe about,
then I consider myself one lucky person!
One thing I did great this year was start this
blog, it utterly amazes me how kind people
can be, ya know, I stood in a huge line at the
grocery store today and just watched peoples
faces, nobody was smiling....so ya had to stand
in a long line, whoopiedodah....
I was thinking, just be grateful you
can stand and then I started chuckling to myself...
see, life is what you make it. I had a blast standing
in line, and I even let this little old lady go in front
of me. ( My good deed for the day is done) LOL
If I had one digi-wish (is that a new word?) LOL
It would be that I could personally meet you all,
I do see the smiles in your writing and what a feeling
that is to see. To try and explain this to someone
who is not in the digiscrappin world is so hard,
they just don't understand how one can be so
involved with people they never met, but even
though we will never see each other face to face,
I can feel the true friendships I have formed and
WOW I am sooo LUCKY! So, to my old and new
friends... I wish you all the best in the year 2009!
May it be a year of good health and lots of laughter!
I would raise my glass of champagne to you all, but
I don't drink anymore....someone get me a glass
of sparkling cider please...LOL
CHEERS to you all!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
Ok, I am done being mushy.....you won't see too
much mushy stuff from me....only a few times a
year... and New Year's Eve is one of them! lol
All my shopping is done, got the appetizers for
tonight and the pork and sauerkraut for tomorrow
all that is left is my warm jammies and hubby
to get out of work. So until then, I will work on
my new kit, ohhhh, this one is gonna be fantastic!!!!
Wait till ya see this one....so keep an eye out for it.
Think fantasy and dreams..........lol
So until next year peeps, have a great night and
if you are drinking DON'T DRIVE!!! and if you
are driving DON'T DRINK!!!! Stay safe, ok!!!
Chow for Now!!!

This is Xmas Morning...
Family gathered around the fountain...
Wednesday, December 24, 2008
I sure hope ya'll are ready for Santa!
I know I am! I do have to venture out today for some
fresh strawberries, well as fresh I can get at this time
of year anyway. They are must for the Chocolate
Fountain. I like to say it's for the kids, but I would
be just fooling myself, chocolate is at the top of the
list of my favorite things, lol and there is nothing
I love to see besides presents under the tree all for me
and a fountain of chocolate screaming at me to eat...lol
But before the fun begins, I still have a few things
to get done, so before I get busy with all festivities
I just wanted to quickly wish all my friends out
there a Wonderful Christmas... may it be everything
you wished for and more!!
The other night I got my camera out and just started
taking pictures of the tree and all the other
decorations I have, I tried the picture
of the Christmas ball, but I still got some
experimenting to do with that... I have to figure
out how to take the close up picture and not see
me in the ball...LOL oh well, maybe next year...LOL
But anyway... I think I did capture the essence of
my tree this year, so I made it into a card for everyone...
Well, time for me to run!
Have a Very Merry Christmas Everyone!
Take Care and Stay Safe!!!

everywhere I go....Come on peeps sing
with me....LOL Today was my last day
of work til next year and I am sooo happy!
I swear this was the longest day, it just
seemed to stand still at times and I swear
that clock was broke. I shook it a few times
to try and get the hands to move faster! LOL
I was only suppose to work 1 day this week
but my boss, Linda, decided she needed
a vacation before vacation....LOL The nerve
of her....lmao....Honestly, out of everyone
that works there she certainly deserves it!
That girl takes so much crap from our sweet
doctor, I sure hope when she gets back he shows
a bit more appreciation!!! I did miss her,
so much stuff broke this week, and she has
to come back and fix it all. We love to bust on
her, like when the fax machine is out of paper,
she will be busy and we will be sitting there
talking about something, right next to the fax,
the beeping begins and we look at Linda and start
laughing... "Linda, it's out of paper again".....
ohhhh, she stops what she is doing, loads
the paper and we continue with what we where talking
about....So, that is a running joke we have with her,
the paper, but we still laugh everytime that fax
so when she was away, of course we had
to call her, the fax needed paper, so did the
copier, plus what a time for toner to go too...
3 printers ran out paper also. To top it all off
the kitchen sink is full of water and someone broke
the toilet seat!
WELCOME HOME Linda....hope you had a great
time!!!! LOL We were going to put a bunch of
charts all over her desk too, ohhh, to see the
look on her face when she walked in on Monday,
would of been PRICELESS!!
other stuff to deal with, we will let her slide.
Now that work is done, it's time to get ready for
the holiday, I still got more baking to do and do
all the wrapping. Then I must get a list going
of what kind of food we will be having.
I am thinking Grilled Cheese
are sounding better and better.....LOL
Today is my DD Heather's 20th birthday! Happy
Birthday Sweetie!!! When are you moving out?????
LMAO....Of course she is not here, she decided
to go away with her friends, so much for a
small party at McDonald's.... and they have that
playground there and everything...she just isnt
any fun any more!!!! LOL
And I was going to buy all her friends happy
So whatever you do Heather, don't make any
Are you all still with me, yeah I did some
rambling, I am almost done...
I want to tell ya about KimB's new kit... Time Anew.
This kit is FABULOUS!
get all the details.
And I made a few pages from her new kit.
This first one is Heather, this was taken at
Thanksgiving. I am just not sure if I like this
one, I don't know why, but it just needs something
or I need to get rid of something, but
either way I am keeping it the way it is! LOL
The next one I love! I have always wanted to go to
NYC to bring in the New Year, but all those
people there, crammed in on Time Square just
freaks me out, and where do these people go to
the bathroom??? They all have been standing
in one spot for a long period of time, drinking
champagne or their drink of choice, and they are
bound to have to go!!! Anywayyyy, I found this photo
and decided to pretend that I went....
Ohhh we had the time of our lives......hahahaha
You like???? lol If so I made it into a QP for you!!!
So even if you can't make it to NYC you can use any
picture, but it's got to be in 2009....LOL Hence
Click the preview below, if you want to
snag it and keep up the great work with comments,
I am in complete awe at all the ones you all have
been leaving, my head is huge and so is my heart,
so I will continue to give my stuff away free.... LMAO
mwahhhhh to you all!!!!
and relax for the night! I got tons of baking
to do tomorrow. We are expecting a lot of snow
starting tonight some time, so maybe I will get
out and make me a real snowman....lol
Have a great weekend everyone and stay safe!!!

What a dreary day it is here.
dressed and actually doing something
besides sitting at this computer.
do a little dance....today is your day!!!
Monday, December 8, 2008
how to make someone feel good! The
responses I got on my snowgirl certainly
made my day!!! I thank you all!!! Now
that my ego has been adjusted,
for the better, I might add...lol)
I went back to the drawing board.
Why, I never save my stuff in a psd file,
is beyond me! So yes, that snowgirl I just
saved as a jpeg. And since the response was
soooo good I did her brother! LOL
Maybe it's a good thing I
don't save them as psd's...since starting
from scratch again, I got to learn more
this time and I gotta tell ya, I am loving
this one....LOL I guess it's the vest on
him, I played with smudging, blurring, adding
shadows with a brush...not the shadow button
and I really like the way it looks....I wanted
the bulging out of the seams look.. then I
wanted the stitches...ohhh, that look a bit
of time, but well worth it, I think anyway...lol
But before I show you my snowboy you just gotta
see these layouts from my friends at SBM.
I was totally floored when I went into the
gallery this weekend and every time I went in
I saw someone using my stuffs.... That really
made my head swell....LOL So I wanted to share
them with all you peeps!
This first one was mailed to me from PkDoll...
I do love it! Thanks Paula
This one was done by one of my CHILLS friend...Sue
I just love how she used the candy cane for his name!
And these 2 are from Omajo. They don't have
snow where she lives, but she used them anyway...
what a sweetie!!! Thanks Jo....
and this one she changed the color to green!
How COOL is that!!!!!
Ok, now onto your freebie....I loved reading
your comments, so don't stop now....lol
Here is the preview:
If you want to snag him just click the preview!
(Hopefully I did that right??) LOL
Okie Dokie, time for me to get something done in this
house, I am expecting my MIL and I had to get out
of my jams...dang it!!! LOL So have a great day everyone,
and stay safe!!!

minutes, if I don't get too chatty! LOL
I see I have been neglecting my blog, BAD ME!
But I got a good excuse, I swear! And I will
show you soon....
But first, I got some FANS out there,
who would of ever thought!!! LOL Certainly
NOT ME!!!! I can't tell ya how exciting it
is to make stuff and then actually see peeps
using it!!! It just floors me, and at the
same time, I get all oohie inside, I know,
oohie isn't a word, heck I just made it up,
I just can't think of the word I want to use
right now and I do like making up words...
makes life a bit more interesting and people
look at you weird too...but that's ok, it makes
people laugh! I swear try using OOHIE today
and people will think you totally lost it! LOL
I know, I'm a weirdo!!! LOL
Anywayyyy, I want to show you some layouts
that some peeps have been doing! I really
LOVE them all!
These are by MoonlightPearl (Elle) from SBM!
I just LOVE her ocean layouts and she even made
me a calendar, so now I have a lovely layout
that I can look at all next year! THANKS ELLE!!
These are from Eye (Irene) They are sooo
BEAUTIFUL!!! She is from Nova Scotia and
the snow they get there looks soo pretty!
THANKS AGAIN Eye.....you are certainly a GOOD FRIEND!
These two are pictures of her new grand baby!
Here are the nature layouts:
And this one she used a combination of kits....
soooo clever Eyeball! LOL
Thanks again!! You both made my night when I saw them
in the SBM gallery! mwahhhhhhhh!
Now to the DON'T LAUGH part.....
I made something in PS all by myself, used
some shapes and normal brushes....LOL It started
out as a teddy bear, cause I always wanted to make
one of those, maybe one day, but now is not the
time...LOL I've been working on this all week...
Maybe I have been just looking at it too long and
it started to grow on me, I don't know, but I think
it came out rather cute...so here it goes, DON'T LAUGH
PLEASE...my Mom always had this phrase and it would
go like this..."If you don't have anything nice to say,
don't say ANYTHING at all".....well, that's how I am
going to take this....and don't just say it to make
me feel good either, I need to know! Is it CUTE
or do I need to start again...cause I will....I am
like that.....LMAO! ok, ok, ok, enough rambling!!!!
Here she is....my first snowgirl....
I am trying to figure out how you can just
click the picture to download! Can anyone
help me with that. I highlighted the image code
and clicked the link button, but that doesnt
seem to work....can someone please share that
info with me....pleazzzzzzeeeee!
Click HERE if you would like
to have her...and please leave some love!
I really do love reading what you peeps
have to say!!!!
Ok, I think that's it for tonight! Have a
great weekend everyone and please be stay safe!
Chow for Now!!!
