Dec. 11,2010

Hello all
It is Dec. were has the months went. I have been busy with work and getting my Secret Santa ready for my partner this last few months. I have been working on my charms for a charm swap at Myscraproom.ning.com. It is for Kathy the Canadianscrappergirl. It is Dec. Charm swap.. I have six made already and working on the other six and I have to make my tags for them to go on.. I will try to post pictures if my stupid camera will work..Been having issues with it. I almost didn't get my secret Santa videoed for you tube.. (1Angelbrat) It has been a depressing time this year not sure why tho, I haven't even gotten my tree up or the house decorated. I am a bit overwhelmed with my house. I just haven't had the ambitions to clean or to do anything.. . I pray it gets better. Anyway I am still waiting on my 35 subbies.. That is enough to depress a person.. THat no one wants to subscribe to your blog.. Guess I am not popular enough or worthy enough to have anymore peopoe sub to me.. Anyway I am off to get some things done.. Maybe laundry.. it is quite a pile in the basement.. Since it is a rainey day and I don't want to go anywhere.. and it is geting quite cold too maybe snow tonight..

Anyway see you all later..

Good Morning.. It is Friday. YAY YAY !! So excited it is the weekend. Well I first of all want to tell everyone that my mom is on the mend.. She had back surgery Monday the 18th and it was for some pinched nerves and some of her disc's were sliped... I am so glad she is feeling so much better. She went to the Doctor yesterday and he said that she was healing fine and that he would see her back in 4 weeks. So I am pleased with the out come so far. Anyway just wanted to share that little tid bit.

So today is Friday and a work day... We are to get a big snow storm to come thur here today.. We are to go tonight to Menards for hubby. He is wanting some sort of tool.. and then to the store for some gorcerys for his Mens Breakfast he is having at church Sat. Morning. He and my son are so pumped for this.. It is were the men make the breakfast and they have fellowship and will no doubt be followed by a game of Basketball in the gym.. So Saturday will be my day of laundry since I got a new dryer last night. and i am going to work on a mini and cut some papers and to play with my new Glimmer Mist.. and my Smooches.. I have some flowers I want to alter. So this is going to be fun.. Have to get my heat gun out so I can dry the flowers... :) I am so excited because if we get snowed in I can play with my Cricut and my new glimmer mist and smooches and work on scrapbooking and mini's.. I also want to try my hand at making some of the paper flowers that I seen on You Tube and glimmer mist them. I need to get out the old grocery bags and some old books and maybe the old news papers also so I can make them. I did get me a cutter that cuts circles and squares and ovals.. I wonder what a flower would look like cut out in an oval?? Hummm going to have to try that.. anyway I need to get going and get ready for work but wanted to post today.. as I am trying to post often.. Cuz I don't want to loose my subscribers.. I am trying to be intresting.. LOL I am going to post a picture of a flower I cut out with my Cricut..
