Now - for those of you who know me - you know that I am not a big fan of the phone! I am way more connected to friends who either live in another State and talk online with me all the time, or friends who I see in person every week... sadly - if you fall in between there somewhere - well, it's not that I don't THINK of you - it's just that I really, really, really hate the phone?! LOL?! I would MUCH rather chat in person - but the next best thing is chatting online... for some reason the phone doesn't ever really tempt me?! Anyway - Thanks Chuck for checking in and making sure I am still drawing breath - and making sure that my computer is in fact NOT broken or crashed?!
I can't even really tell you that I have been super busy - or super productive... because I haven't?! I have worked on some Christmas cards - but have nothing assembled yet - that comes this week! I made an adorable little fold out mini for Fall photo's - but I have to actually go out and TAKE some of those before I can finish the mini... I will post pix when it is complete though - because it rocks!!! (if I DO say so! ...thanks Tracy for the instructions! I LOVE these and will be making more SOON I know!) I also made a few Thanksgiving/Count your Blessings Coaster chipboard mini albums for etsy. I read a book or two... still haven't gotten too in depth into Mitford... I am still on chapter 2 or 3... it's a slow read and I have other favorite authors who pull me right in from the start - so they win and I have been reading them instead. I am however going to visit my sister this weekend - so I NEED to finish at least Book One?! LOL!?
I did venture in to Craft Warehouse and spent about $100 of my Gift Card... I bought Christmas papers and fun stuff for my cards and Christmas crafts, as well as a new Paper Cutter which I LOVE and a few other odds and ends! I did exactly what I didn't want to do - just bought supplies that will not really last long and so I will have nothing to show for it?! But - they were things I needed so it is all good!
Another thing that has kept me busy the past few weeks is I ended up taking over the local Yakima SparkPeople Team. I contacted the leader to check in and offer a bit of help... I joined and a few of us had met in person already and were wanting the Team to be a bit more active - anyway - in the end, I thought I would offering to assist, but she handed the team over to me! So - tomorrow we are having a Team Lunch and Wednesday I am meeting one of the members for coffee... it's not a heavy addition but it does require a bit of time and attention!
I will post more tomorrow (or maybe the next day!?) tee hee!? Darcie wants some mindless random facts or trivia of some kind - and I was just tagged (again?!) by www.pinkpatriceboutique.blogspot.com so I should give ya a little random somethin' somethin'! (No worries though - I will not be tagging anyone this time around!)
