It's Finally Friday Not that it matters to me any longer, but I just thought I'd put that out there for those of you that it matters to. It's been wow these past few weeks. Been crazy busy here. Between work and working on projects. Work was going great until my hip and back started killing me. Was doing a lot of hours working the store, and it was just to much on it I guess. So I had a chat with the acting manager and I'll be doing more classroom things instead so I won't be on them a much. I'm saddened to find out that an LSS that I taught at for years is closing. This Saturday is her last day open. I'm going to make a trip down to see her today and pick up some goodies. She's offering 60% off everything left in the store. I hope there is some good things left. It's quite a hop down to her store. But it'll be nice to see and chat with her again. We haven't chatted in so long. Well I just wanted to pop in here and say HI. I can't wait to share with you the new site that's coming. You'll all love it .... Have a great weekend.... Hugs from Charm City

Wanted to Share some.... (I took this first thing this morning. It's the neighbors little house in their backyard. I just loved the blue against the white snow. And with the trees covered, it looks like a little cabin in the woods...) of our good fortune that we received yesterday and last night. We had alot of fun earlier playing in the snow. The neighbors dog came over for a play date with Mystic to. She is such a playful dog. And huge, is she ever so massive. Her name's Daisy. Kaitlynn's off sledding. Can't wait to see how much fun she had. I got a swap package a week or so ago and these photos will be great with it. I can't wait to play.... Well have a great Sunday!!!! Enjoy all of our white stuff.... Hugs from Charm City!!!! This is my favorite photo
White Pearly Stuff Oh ya BABY!!!!! We got it...I can't believe we finally got some snow. It looks so beautiful outside right now. I just had to take some photos this morning of it. WOOHOO!!! IT'S A SNOW DAY!!!! I can't wait to get out and play. Kaitlynn's SNOW DANCE finally worked this year. The trees are so pretty when they are freshly covered. Not much going on here otherwise. I did finish my layouts for the contest. Now I'm going to start my "C" cards for my ATC swap that I'm in. I know I'm late, but I just had to get these other projects out of the way first. And did everyone hear that Cammy had her baby? Oh my. What a beauty she is too...I just love little babies. They are so precious and innocent. Innocent of the world's demise. Well I just wanted to pop in and say HI. I hope everyone had a wonderful week and even a better week ahead. Here's a couple of photos that I snapped this morning...ENJOY!!! Hugs from a very pretty white Charm City Well the photos aren't uploading right now. I guess something's going on...I just got a report for Kaitlynn, she said we got 12" of snow.....woohoo!!! Let the play time begin...

GOOOOOOOOOO STEELERS!!!!!!! WOOHOO!!! I am so proud of them. I can't believe that they took the game last night...woohoo!!!! At least one of my teams made's been awhile...way to go guys!!! Today is officially my first day at work. I went for another interview last Friday for the assistant managers job at the store, but I didn't come out of it feeling warm and fuzzy. So it's not looking like I'll be getting that position. But I am going to be teaching and working with customers so I am still a happy camper. And I did get a call from the other store that I interviewed with the other day. They were at CHA in Vegas when he called. He said that I will have an offer in the mail this week. So I'm interested in what they are going to offer me for their store. I really want to work for them, but I'm not getting bennis with them. And this is one thing that I needed for my family and I. I guess God works in mysterious ways. Here's a project that I worked on ther other day and thought I'd share it with you all. I just picked up Architectural Decor book by Linda Gillum the other day and was so inspired by her work that I had to try it out. This is one that was in her book. Although I changed the process alittle, it still looks like her project. If you get a chance and want to step outside of your normal box, I would highly suggest getting this book. All it is, is foam (2 different size foam sheets), paint, glaze, newspaper and some glue. What a cool project. And some add your own wall art to your space. I have another in the making that I'm using paper on instead of paint. I'll share that one as soon as I get it finished. I picked up the foam and the book at Michaels in the flower foam isle. It's not the green foam, but the white moldable one. Really fun to work with. Have fun and if you make anything I'd love to check out your projects. Here's another project that I made the other day to. I just picked up some of the C. Cole papers and wanted to make this project. It's not a very good photo, sorry. The can opens up to add some hidden goodies inside for that special person. A great friend of mine is in the hospital and I thought this would be a great thing to send. Instead of regular flowers, this will last forever. I'm thinking about adding a quote/poem on the front. Well I hope you like the projects I've shared. I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead. Thanks for stopping in.. Hugs from a very cold Charm City
