Well it's Friday, I worked hard yesterday, we tore down a old deck and hauled the wood away one truckload at a time, we made 4 trips to the dump yesterday and still have one to go today, I did make a new file today though, it's a nice bird, I'll make some more birds and set them up as a collection, it did turn out rather nice.
I'm going to be home alone this weekend, son and Hubby are going to Boyscout camp for the weekend, I look forward to getting the house clean, reading a book or two, and working on my files, maybe I'll turn the phone off so I don't get phone calls either.

Free File

I'm probably going to post my free file sometime today, so it'll be early, it is a banner that you can use as a title. I made a bald eagle yesterday and one today, and the banner, so I've done 3 files in 2 days, doing well so far. I'm going to upload my eagles at Paperthreads, and I may sell them as a pair, I haven't figured them out yet. Will share the pictures when I take and upload them.
Have a great holiday with your families,

Where has this week gone?

This week has just flown by, I had so many things to do, and we opened our pool and it is ready for swimming, weather is getting warmer, so it should be ready. This weekend my brother is in town so we'll be busy visiting, we are going to Jazz on the Lawn tonight, so much to do. Kudos to you all that do it and work full time, I don't remember doing it all when I did, but I'm sure I managed my time better then. I'm going to try to make a file a day, we'll see how long it lasts. I'm going to put my files at Paperthreads on sale sometime next month, I'll give you a heads up before I do this, but I wanted to get some more individual files made before I do that.

Have a great weekend, and remember those who served and those who gave their life so we all could be free, Happy Memorial Day!!

Free File Monday

I posted the file Butterflies for Hope, my neices name is Hope and I did a page where a butterfly chased her around all day long, it tickled her because she loves butterflies, and it kept landing on her arms and fingers, so she showed everyone. I'll have to post that layout someday so you can see it. My winning layout from the Red Hat crop is posted on Sat. May 10 post, in case you wanted to see it. Enjoy the file.

My Red Hat Meeting

I had a good time yesterday, there were about 12 women in the 2 page layout contest and I won 1st place with my Mother Day Layout, and my friend won 2nd place, with a pretty flower layout, congrats Carolyn.
We did a class on a 2 page layout of family, it was giving by another Red Hatter and turned out beautiful, good job Dora.
We went shopping at Michaels, and Joanns (none in our town) in Nashville, then out to eat at Calhouns, my first, and it was yummy. Hope you all had a great weekend.

Freebie requests

Are there files any you want to request? Do you want more overlays, paper piecings, themed, holiday, words, ect...let me know what YOU want. I have a class this Saturday, hopefully it is full, I just heard a rumor our health insurance is going to double, that's a bummer. With the price of gas I'm not going out as much, but I enjoy staying home, so that's ok by me. Tonight I have a stampin up class, must attend that, some things are just neccessities

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again. ~Og Mandino

Thank you

For all the personal and public posts I've gotten lately. It makes me feel like it's worth doing the blog when I get so many postive comments. I'm working hard on new layouts so I have something to work on at my NSD crops and on Monday you'll see what I've come up with, I have made a Jungle page already, it's just not ready to put on my website yet, but I'll post pictures of that on Sunday or Monday along with whatever I've done from NSD.

NSD Plans

I am going to a friends house and scrappbooking on Friday from 6-whenever, and then on Saturday back to her house until around 5, going home eating dinner with my hubby (hope he's cooking) and then to Scrappers Delight Store for their 6-1am crop. I still remember my first NSD Day, I just started scrapbooking, my kids were little so I didnt' have much of a social life, and I had no where to go, so I sat on the floor, scrapbooked with my kids and had a wonderful time. I hope whatever you do for NSD you have a good time, and even if you are not a ornate scrapper, you put your pictures down on pages the safe way, you journal, I tend to forget details so journaling is important to me, and the rest is just icing.
I hope you have a great weekend!!
