Cards for Soldiers

Just a reminder that I do collect cards for soldiers. A friend of mine and myself ship cards over to Iraq and Afghanistan to our soldiers that are serving our country away from home. They don't have a large selection of cards in their PX so we send cards to the Chaplain and he distributes them among the troops. We make celebration cards, birthday, congrats, and way to go, also holiday cards and just "A note to say Hi" cards, we also collect the fronts of cards, cardstock, envelopes and if you want cash to help us ship them to the soldiers. If you would like to donate handmade cards, send me an e-mail and I'll send you my shipping address.
Thanks for any help you can give us.

So Excited

I'm going to be the hostess for the Membership club for the next 3 months starting in November, I have tons of ideas, now that I have my machine, I'm ready to go. For only $10.00 you get at least 20 files, I'm sure I'll put up more than 20, over a 3 month period to use for cards or scrapbooking. These are brand new files that have not been in the store before. You can go now and sign up for it, here is the link. I'm also going to be putting it to the left of this message.

Trace Creek

I'm going to Trace Creek again this weekend for a crop. I'm setting up as a vendor, hoping to get some roses cut out to sell. Have I mentioned how I love my klick-n-kut, now that I have one back?

Kitchen update: Purchased and installed a new ceiling fan, installed base cabinets so we are ready for the granite, which will be installed next tuesday. Sanded and painted the hall walls, sealed the grout in the hall. Slowly but surely coming along.

TAC Halloween Card

I made this halloween card last year with scraps of paper I had and The Angel Company Stamp set called Halloween boys. It has been discontinued, but is still available for a short time.

I'm a procrastinator

Yes, I admit it, I wait until the last minute for just about everything. My friends say I'm organized and on time, but they don't see what happens when they are not looking. I appear to be organized, and I arrive on time (panting and sweating). I've found if I have several things I need to do and I write a list, I find I'm more able to finish those chores if I see the satisfaction of marking off finished items. Today I need a list!

Kitchen is at a standstill, hubby is working 12 hour shifts for a week and a half, and he is dragging when he comes home, plus it gets dark soon after that and he can't see the cabinets to work on them.

Klick n kut is hooked up, but not working I have to call and get help to get it working. (one of those things on my list)

Tried a new recipe this week, it is really good, but only if you like leeks. It is called Pasta with brueshetta and leeks
above link for the recipe.
I used bacon instead of bruechetta, and a different white wine than she suggested, but it did turn out awesome, everyone else in the house turned up their nose, but they don't like the onion flavor, I do, and it does have a onion flavor to it, milder, but still oniony. (is that a word?)

I'm putting blogging on my list.
