Christmas alert

Wal mart has the Cricut cartridges "Christmas Cheer" at the Campbell lane store. A side note: you can't find it anywhere else (I looked for it at three different stores up north). And Hobby Lobby has the all my memories tote in pink, green, and purple for 25 or 29 (mental block)bucks and if you use your coupon, well that's one good deal! I paid 50 buck for that think about 15 mos ago ugh! That's it for today I'm working on some projects for Friday! Blessings A

On Thanksgiving you'll find me where there is mountains of turkey and pie, sweet yams and potatoes piled high to the sky. Football being watched, football being played and long Christmas wish lists being made. Grandma's sneaking tastes of cool whip to her favorite grandkids, and dishes to be done less work to the highest bids. And surely you'll find me with the ones I love most. Talking and yes, eating and making a toast. To this meal To this day To the years yet to come. To my family and friends and to all of the fun. And of course to you my very good friends, I hope your Thanksgiving Day is wonderful to the very end.

found on alphabet soup a site for teachers

I wish you and your family's every Thanksgiving blessing!

Go ahead stuff your self silly

As my Thanksgiving day shirt suggest (stuff yourself silly) I fully intend to do just that tomorrow. But for the now I'm eating light. I think dinner will be a chicken wrap with a fat free strawberry fresh fruit drink from sonic. Can you tell I've had no breakfast? And it's 11 am. So much to do and so little time to do it in. I think I may need to settle for the mashed potatoes and rice that was left over dinner in the freezer. I have way to much to do to leave this house.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and all of your family
enjoy your day, take lots of pictures, and count your blessings!
much love, A

I have many questions

Ok I'm getting ready to work on Christmas cards and here's what I want to do:
a black and white photo with glitter on it
{I know it doesn't sound complicated}
however ever I'm not sure how to go about it here is my theory to getting the job done

1 spray picture with spray glue/adhesive

2 sprinkle glitter (ultra fine glitter that wont get clumpy so you can see the photo still)

3 spray a clear (hopefully matt) finish over the picture to keep the glitter from falling off photo/card?

what do you think? Have any of you tried any thing similar? Any tips or suggestions?
thanks A

in or out

So are you Going to Have you turkey dinner in or out (at home or restaurant) this year?

Pink perfection

Well it's official Clipie man is done painting in my scrapbook room and it is now pink. I'm so happy to have this over with, it's been a long project. Now all that is left is some trim work. Isn't he incredible how many other hubbies would paint a room they are barely allowed in?

DW asked why I haven't been shopping and I have, it's just been mundane things like a new Christmas tree and bulbs. No present shopping yet, I haven't even made a list. Santa is running behind this year, way behind. On top of everything else we had our pictures taken yesterday so hopefully after this week things will sing into full Christmas time mode. And in that spirit Merry Christmas!

The most marvelous event has occurred

Katie and Tom got married today!
Just joking

Were Number One, Were Number One, Were Number One
It's all about beating Michigan baby
The Bucks are the team of the year

best game of the year, everyone fought hard for a win
The Shoe was packed with the most people ever 105,000+
(the shoe is the nick name for our stadium b/c it's shaped like one)
not only that, did you hear the Best Damn Band in the Land?
(again I must clarify the Best Dam# band in the Land is a lovingly referred to phrase by locals

plus the one and only risky word I will ever post)
Ok I'm done with my gloat, you will hear no more until Rose Bowl.
I promise!

Top secret turkeys

So I've been thinking (I know a dangerous action) about the future. I believe that D.W, has came up with the next dress up theme (remember the green one?). I'm not at liberty to say more just in case, well just In case some one is reading and wants to be a theme buster. I have came up with a suggestion for next fall's retreat, its major league fun. I'll share in an email, just pass it around until everyone gets it or I can wait and unveil it at BK in a couple of weeks. All I can say is I shared it with D.H. and she liked it. I hoping you will too.

Happy scrappin

Well I'm excited to see you turkeys tonight. I've got some paper to find and I also need to use the die cut while I'm there. So I'll see you guy's later!

Play station 3 = they are not husband material

Yesterday I found the perfect Christmas tree so as a result Mr. Incredible and I went to stare at letter N and to eventually purchase it. I wanted him to see it, so off we went to Wally world. This was new experience for both of us, we never have bought a Christmas while married (we bought one before) I was sick as a dog and he asks "want a tree?" I said "I like the one at Hearts"( a k-mart like store that used to be up north) so our tree is like 15 years old and needs replacing real bad. So on the way he needs to take a quick trip to Best Buy.

Now I don't know if any of you bother to watch the local news, we usually don't. The news is usually two days old and a repeat of last weeks, if ya know what I mean. But apparently last night they had a clip on what was going down at BB, (so hubby tells me) . The play station 3 is due out (this mooring) tomorrow morning at 8:00. Well lo and behold there is a line of about 20 boys and I mean boys (collage years) camped out beside the front doors. Some are playing bean bag toss while others are huddled in tents and a few are starting to resemble frozen popsicles. I'm thinking why? 1. Good reason could be to sell it on e-bay, if you were smart, but I'm pretty sure they weren't those type of people. Do people who use e-bay shout "hey due!" when some one makes a bean bag basket? I guess anything is possible. As we made our way through the store there was a definite air of what is to come in the morning. At the check out (some what close to the doors) a young single check out girl is obviously annoyed by the young male shouts of revelation do to the bean game outcome. She had sighed deeply before she even ca blinked the second season of home improvement.
I said: you've got a loud crowd out there don't you.
clerk: yep
me: are you single
her: yes
me: I said go outside and check them out burn there faces in your memory
her: Why ( she obvious wants a quality man)
me : so you can remember what they all look like
her: blink
me: they are not husband material
her : big smile, that's good I'll remember that

She is on her way to becoming a smarter woman. My niece dated one of these play station men he was 32 and loved his play station more than her. Side note; her previous B F was as well.
So to the mothers out there: tell your daughters If they play, play station beware.
For the single woman: make sure play station is not his first wife!

News flash

Gobbler T is doing better and it's a girl
Thanks D.W. for the up date.

Snow? And X box in my cereal

Did anybody watch the long range forecast? It has dandruff in it,
I'm not ready for that, like hello I 'm getting ready to travel next
week. Ok that was a bit of a rant but I'm really not ready for that
type of weather. I'm ready for the thanksgivings of the past not
this new cold stuff I mean it's just like I'm living back home.

X box in my cereal? When I opened up my frosted flakes this morning on the top (not on the bottom) of the flakes was a miniature hand held X box game. What is up with that with cereal surprise going high tech? I think everyone should half to dig for the prize just like I did as a girl. Furthermore it certainly should not have circuitry. Get real if it's on top (when you open the box) what kind of surprise is that? And not in the cereal? What's that all about? I am total surprised I thought it was the kid who was supposed to be surprised.

Ok next subject I'm feeling a bit green How about you B.K.?

I'm thinking that we need to write Bonnie a letter and tell her what a great time we all had what do you Turkeys think?

And I must not forget to say We missed you gobbler T. Your empty chair was present at our table all weekend. We look forward to a time that you will be able to join us in our next costume oriented adventure! And speaking of gobbler T when is her birthday? Gobbler T and D.W. some how evaded our birthday list.

Moving on
Christmas crop at B.K's Details:
Friday December 1 and 2

The LebaNON road

Our scrapbooking retreat was all about the road. It was all about enjoying the relationships we have paved in the road of life. My road was smoothly paved this weekend, filled with stops of friendship and laughter along the way. I had a great time, I had one of the best times ever. I hope you did to. It's seven thirty and I can go no more, I am exhausted from having a great time. I must rest. I will post photos later (after I sleep) and maybe in the next day or so I'll post an "interactive" game for us.

It's here today is the day when we load up our
cars and travel!
I'm not quite ready (of course) but I'm prepared to do the mad dash,
I always do on traveling day. My only sadness about our girl get away
is leaving my Clipie man. Yes I have guilt about being self indulgent
while he is left at home with my fur baby. That aside I don't have all
day to sit here and talk I've got to go get ready to have for me serious
fun with some of my favorite scrappers! If any articles show up about
car maintenance you'll know Clipie man has invaded my scrapper blog!

Wednesday, November 08, 2006

3 DAYS! Ladies just 3!

Beep, Beep, Beep,
We interrupt this blog to bring you an important message
A certain scrapper has found a floor in her scrapbook room.
Yes you are reading correctly I have found what looks and feels like a floor in my favorite room. Now don't be alarmed. It was found during excavation in preparation for packing and painting. The floor in question seem friendly enough and is without harm and it has something growing on it (it may resemble carpet).

Let me further explain. In my home I have a most beloved room that I say is dedicated to toward none other than scrapbooking. It is some what sacred, men may only enter when using the computer, or they do suffer coincidence. However if you looked at it you would question the sanctity because it looks more like (I need to think about this .......Hum how do I describe it) Have you ever seen the movie Yours, Mine, and Ours? (the new one) It looks a lot like her creative space (but worse) my floor is covered too. Until yesterday when I created a small clean spot and it greatly alarmed me.

Why is it I feel the need to be one of those people who need a creative mess? I can't seem to get anything done when it's clean. I have no ideal what phobia this is but in the mean time, I'm going to try more than ever before to have a clean room.
Blessing 2 u
go vote today, so you can complain later!

We have a birthday alert!

Calling all scrappers to sing:
Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you,
Happy late birthday to
Lisa the most wonderful scrapper
Happy birthday to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and many more.

please submit your birthday dates below in the comment section so we can keep up with one another. Thanks


It's just four days until we take off. I'm so excited

On a serious note yesterday some one tried to gain access to my blog (who didn't have access). An alert was issued to me and well now I know. I really hope it's just some random hacker who is hacking there way through nice blogs like this one. So I want to issue a warning to all who read my blog on a regular basis if it suddenly turns funky than my normal cantor know I didn't do it. As for security I'll be changing the pass word every day for a while to keep it hacker safe sorry for such a not happy message I really like to keep it you know, like me, a happy, joy kinda place.

That's pretty much it for today and I'm gonna work on packing because Mr incredible is home tomorrow (he seems to be a distraction at times). Especially when he offers to help me paint another wall in my scrapbook room. So I'll go vote (so I can complain later) (thanking heaven that John isn't on the ballot) tomorrow. Tonight I've got a wal- mart run, (so Mr I can have a no cook weekend). So tell me do you always feel this guilty when you go away to have fun? Or is it just the first few times you leave them alone for the weekend?

5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Blast off!
I know my blast off statement is kind dork (ish) but I could not resist. Ok so lets cover the basics are we all just taking what we want or do y'all want to coordinate this thingie. Some one taking quick cutz? Any body taking a side kick, xyron machine, mm tag maker old fashioned eyelet setter? Box of tissues. I know what your thinking your thinking I 'm getting nervous right? Wrong I'm an extreme packer when I go on vacation I forget nothing bwhahahahahahahahahah. No just joking I'm just a bit you know, not picky but a small pain in the butt when I pack. Ok so here is my master plan, by Wednesday or so why don't we all make a list of what each of us are bringing and post it in the comment section of the blog. That way we all can travel a bit lighter. IF any body needs an extra bag let me know, your more than welcome to borrow. I'm also going to put at least two of my old ones up for sale. I was supposed to work on my matching today but I found two good movies this morning and before I knew it Mr incredible was home from work. So I didn't get any packing done. I'm going to need to buckle down or as the cmt channel says cowboy up.

Two more things I want to ramble on about. One is have you ever watched Hogan knows best? (I think that's the name) It's about hulk Hogan and it's a reality show on cmt, it's good so if you see it watch it. It's just about there everyday life, how many animals they have and their kids of course.

Second thing I just wanted to again remember our pregnant gobbler she needs our prayers. And I don't know if any of you knew the officer that was killed this week but one of hubbies co workers (spouse of co-worker is on the force) did. From what I hear he was a very good man. Remember his family. I don't have the guts to be an officer so I really admire anyone that does. Hard job, risky job, even more hard job, to be the spouse of an officer. I thought it was great to see the out pouring of emotion. Makes me want to organize a scrapbook for them.
blessings to u and your family


six days left!

Friday, November 03, 2006



Let me just say in one week from today I will be furiously getting ready and so excited that I'll need a tranquilizer drug of some sort. Sorry I didn't get around to answering posts yesterday but I went out last night and well ran out of that precious commodity called time. B.K. And I went to C.and C. And yes she had 40 off on mostly everything. I was out in the clearance building and found some of that ink I spoke about in a previous post and bought a few of them that were not on clearance. Other than that every thing I bought was. I got some turkey paper, some kitty paper that had the same type of food she eats, some relay cool license plate and vintage post card paper (got the last of that) and a cloth m.m. sticker sheet marked down to one dolla maya, and my favorite (I hope) will be the hedi swap paint! And one of those mask things by hedi swap too. All in all It was a good thing. I found a way to get there that made it supper close for me, so I enjoyed the short beautiful drive the fall color are amazing . Oh and speaking of gas one of the carry outs was charging 1.99 for gas!!!!!!!!
and D asked us to remember our pregnant gobbler, so be praying for her & baby. blessings

Thursday, November 02, 2006


Eight days, my, my those numbers are getting skinny. I'm not packed but spent several hours trying my very best to cram everything I could into my tote that holds embellishments. My next "phase" is to try to match up the remaining photos with paper and then search through my embellishments to coordinate with them. That being said it's much more complicated to get done in the mix of the day.
Road trip- I think I'm taking a trip down south to see what's 40 percent off today. I hope that I can find paper to match my Nashville pictures and I've heard something abut this special kind of turkey paper. You guys wouldn't know any scrappin gobblers would ya? Blessings. A

I did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
9 days until retreat

Happy birth day to my sister, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to my sister, happy birthday to her. Happy 49 Sis!
So like you can tell It's all about family with me. I also forgot to say happy Birthday to
who had his very first b-day this weekend. Unfortunately Colten lives on an Army base in a way off state and I've never got to hold him or hug him but here's to you kiddo!

Wow I bet all you are saying that's a lot of birthday's. True this is a popular time of year for my family and clipie man's family.

At 4:48 my first treater arrived and at 6:50 or so I had my last. All in all about 45 together, down form last years 62. My favorite was a three year old girl who took off running soon as she got in the yard,(left her mom in the dust) and made a b line for me and the candy dish. She was dressed with wings and a cute little shimmery out fit, buy the time she got to the door her mom had caught up with her. She was out of breath and obviously had been chasing her little butterfly all over the neighborhood. I said to her mom don't worry mom butterfly's are supposed to flitter. The mom was so tired I really felt for her. The other note worthy were a 6'4 pimp with a changing voice ( I don't think he was even fourteen) and the parent who snapped a picture while I was giving out candy to their little goblins (they had to be a scrapbooker I just know it). All in all fun for me as well as them. Did I mention the penguin? a girl a few house's down dressed as a penguin and the poor thing was hot, I told her take off your hat she said "my mom said I couldn't she paid 50 bucks for my costume and I was going to get all the use out of it that I could" It took every thing I had in me not to crack up then and there, but I made it over to the couch where hubby was and exploded into laughter. A

Ha! surprise! not dead!
