CKU and a Tornado
CKU was outstanding, everyone should go at least once. I have quit saying this is a once in a lifetime trip because I am going back in a few years. Jeanette and I have new best friends, I am sure you know Ali Edwards and Tim Holtz. Everyone was so nice and signed autographs when ever we ask.
One day while we were gone my sister-in-law called to check on me. Her daughter had been through Cleveland after the high winds ( per the news) and was stopped by police. No one was to go through there was too many trees in the road and impassable. I was in panic mode until I got in touch with home and all was well. This tree is now in my side parking lot of the shop. No one was hurt just a little damage. Check back for pics of CKU fun later this week. Washing and unpacking today, back to work tomorrow.

I have been TAGGED!
I have put this off because anyone that reads my blog, know all there is to know about me because, I am a talker.
Do you Agree?
Anyway, here it goes, the good , the bad and the ugly.
1. I am a avid collector, of junk. This is a nice way to say I am a pack rat.
2. I think too much, I dwell on a subject. Ask my hubby.
3. I love pretty flower, use to like working in the yard but now I don't. Give me the air conditioned house.
4. I an insecure, it comes with being over weight.
5. I have a short attention spans. If I am not interested.
6. I see dead people,
no not really . But I have your attention again.
7. I Don't except change well. Give it to me slowly.
8. Only a few people know this-
I eat paper. News print. I know it is nasty.
But I always have. I know I am lacking in something,
and it is not a brain. not a lot just a small piece here and there.
9. I am allergic to bees, Wasp. But only since 2000.
10. I am running out of things to tell you, so I am going to challenge you.
Create a page about a item that triggers a child hood memory.
I know #5 is really kicking in right now, but anyway. I drank something the other day that triggered a memory. So I am going to create a page. I will post it later.
And now you have been tagged.

I found this little diddy on e-bay ( I think) made out of coin wrapper. Nice little album for Quotes or Journaling a special event.

As many of you know I also took off Tuesdays during the Summer, along with my usual Sunday and Mondays, to get caught up and relax. Well, all good things must come to a end. And yesterday was my last Tuesday. I don't think I accomplished alot on my days off but I was always ready to go back to the shop on Wednesday.

Well, the supplies are bought, new school clothes have been purchased, shoes too. We met the teacher, took all the supplies, seen his desk and had a hair cut. Forms are still to be filled out, but tomorrow is the day. And nothing will keep grandson#1 from starting 4th grade tomorrow.

I will make sure of that !!!!!!

Busy ! Busy! Busy! I am hosting a Baby Shower/ Ice Cream Social on Sunday afternoon. The new mom is having contraction, I have bought everything you can think of to top ice cream. Ready and waiting.

Decorations are simple and fun, check out Martha's web site for folded paper bowls. I found lot's of ideas there.

All that colored vellum, I bought and have not used, I have cut into circles and will lay them on the white table cloth for a polka-dot effect. I will take pictures.

So I promised her a scrapbook, hope to get started on it today at the shop. Let's see today is Wednesday and shower is Sunday. (5 days)

Wish me luck, it wouldn't hurt to ask the man upstairs to give me energy, and ideas....

Trash To Treasure
Well, this was made out of necessity. I was throwing my receipts in a drawer. So I took 3 used business size envelops and embellished them. I love it and it is handy and didn't cost a thing.....even better.

World's Longest Yard Sale

As some of you know we traveled this yard sale on Thursday and Friday.

I can only describe this adventure in one word


The next few pictures are items I bought to put in the store. And I found a 1800 photo album to alter at Jerri's Christmas Jubilee this year. It was a good thing.
