Hello Everyone

Well, I really don’t know where to start, I think I’ve forgotten how to blog!!

My week at  Angie’s seem to fly by, I enjoyed keeping the boys and Gage wanted me to stay.  I also loved spending time with Angie. I tried using her Mac but I just couldn’t get the hang of it. I don’t have any Adobe programs for a Mac so I decided it was useless to bring it home with me.  I did, however, get a big surprise.  I did Josh’s taxes for him and he had told me when his refund came he was going to buy me new glasses.  I had already gotten them so he called and told me to get ready we were going shopping. They bought me a new 20 in. monitor, first I got a 22 in. but it was really to big and the color wasn’t good on it so we took it back and got a 20 in.flat screen which I LOVE..I also got a new 1 Terabyte hard drive for an extra drive, and a new Natural ergonomic keyboard, I had one a long time ago and loved it but haven’t seen one in awhile. I feel like I have a new computer..I put all of my scrapbook stuff on the new drive and only have a few programs on the main drive.  I have 841 GB of space left on the new drive LOL..I found out that 1 terabyte is equal to 1,000 GB..I’m wondering how long it will take me to fill it up! I watched part of a movie on here and the monitor is bigger than my portable TV in my bedroom. I have been moving stuff off and on for the rest of the week and it took a LONG time..I have been working some to and have some new word art called “Sis and Me” coming out this week..and on the first our Pick Your Bits kit will be out.  I working on Spring into Spring now and hope it will be in the store next week.

Don’t forget my Rustic Warmth word art made to coordinate with Kim’s Rustic Warmth Kit..and also my Southern Comfort set that is my part of the Pick Your Bits for March.



I have a layout to show you from scoobie81


She used For Love of Family Check here for other credits.

On a visit to Angie’s, when she lived in Vegas ,I got  started reading a series of books called The OUTLANDER series by Diana Gabaldon.  I didn’t think I would like them and they were so big, I didn’t want to read them.  One day Angie was at work and I got bored so I started reading the first one in the series, about 2 chapters into it I couldn’t put it down,  I finished that one and started the next and then took the rest of them home with me when I left.  I don’t know how to describe them, they are compelling, well-written, well-researched novels that defy categorization.  Are they time travel?  Historical romance?  Historical fiction?  The only thing I know for certain -  they are exceptional.  Angie had one of the new books in the series and I brought it home with me but when I start to read I tend to fall asleep…Is that a sign I’m getting old? LOL I haven’t finished the one before the one I brought home and now she has a 7th one out so I’m way behind LOL.

In 1945, Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon—when she innocently touches a boulder in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an "outlander"—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of our Lord...1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire's destiny in soon inextricably intertwined with Clan MacKenzie and the forbidden Castle Leoch. She is catapulted without warning into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life ...and shatter her heart. For here, James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a passion so fierce and a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Thought I would share this with you..if you are looking for something great to read, try this will love it if you like time travel, romance, history, fiction and fact. The first book is The Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyagar, Drums of Autumn, Fiery Cross, Breath of Snow and Ashes, Echo in the Bone. You can find out more about the books on

Ok gang I’m almost done lol..I guess I got wound up..but I do have a little something for you today


Just a few fancy tags if you like them you can find them here

Take care everyone and have a good day.

Hello Everyone  here I am again.  Sorry I have been away so long..after my stay in the hospital I’ve just been taking it easy and haven’t been on the computer much at all.  This thing has about seen its better day, still not working right and is a pain to use.  I’ve debugged, done my scans daily, and nothing seems to work.  I need a new one but my budget says not now LOL

Another thing that happened that I am so excited about  I got new glasses..I can see it’s so great not to have me nose on the monitor to see..I love my frames..they are a pale sister said I was in the 21st century now LOL..I will have to make a picture and show you.

Thanks to you 11 who left comments..I really appreciate the well wishes and the prayers..that’s what got me thru and has kept me going. I do feel better now than I have in a long time.  I’m getting around much better and can do more now around the house..I even felt so good I got to keep Jaxon overnight for the 1st time..he is such a good little baby, its hard to believe he is 7 months old, but I got up and down out of the floor and could carry him around, which I’ve not had the breath to do in a long time..I had so much fun with him.  It was the 1st time I’ve really been able to spend time with him without miss jealous Kaylen..

Las night Kaylen spent the night with me..she’s growing so much and I really can’t believe she will be 2 in July.  When Kendra put her down she just ran across the room with her arms out..she got in my lap and that is where she stayed for most of the night..she got her toys out of course, and found her favorite book and we read it over and over and

I will be gone next week to Angie’s..she and Dave are coming to get me today..I am going to keep the boys while they are out for spring break..I’m really looking forward to spending time with them all.  I’m glad I’m feeling so much better now, I can cook supper for them and do some of the household things while Angie is working.  Angie has a Mac computer that she has said I can use..but I have never seen one nor know anything about them, but they say the are better than a PC and they don’t get virus’s..If I figure it out and can use it, maybe I can do a blog from there..I will just have to see..

While I was in the hospital I had 2 new word art sets that came out..some of you may have already seen previews of them but I will show them here.
