Thursday again

It's Thursday and if you was not at chat today you missed a great lesson on blending modes.

Oh life is something else. yesterday I just seemed to get pushed to my limit and I snapped. I sent my self to the corner and took a nap. Then I was up half the night because I had taken the and and I over slept. got up right at 2:00 PM EST when my chat was suppose to start. I threw on some shorts and a t-shirt ran downstairs and grabbed my meds then ran back up the stairs and was in chat by 2:10 EST. Must be some kind of record. Then my friend Cherrie said how she used to do ironing for others and it brought back the memory of how I worked my way threw school doing ironing for others. I used to even iron pleats into to back of shirts for prison guards.

Let me tell you what happened the other night. I got off the computer to go to bed. I go into the bath room to change and I'm trying to figure out why my Bear was behind the toilet. That is not where she sits, she sits in front of the heater vent in the bathroom all day. Well I decided that I need to figure out just why she is back there. I move the bag of kitty litter at sits back there and out pops this MOUSE. I was not well. I hate Meeces to peeces. and I'm not the one. Well I run downstairs to grab one of the glue mouse traps that I just happened to have from before I moved, Thank God. I run back up the stairs and Bear is still behind the toilet so I take it the mouse is still back in that area some place. I lift the litter box and sure enough there it is. Only this time I noticed that it is injured, Bear had done her job right. I dropped the glue trap down on top of the thing and then pick it up by the edge and take it outside and put it on the porch. It was to cold to take it all the way to the trash can at that hour and I was not about to leave it in the house. Well I take it the mouse froze to death over night. Now my question is, was he a little field more or was he a baby mouse and might have family near by. If he was a baby mouse then I might have more of those darn little things running around my house and I'm not well with that idea. So I put a trap down in the kitchen where the cats can't get into it. If he had family they will soon be visiting him again in mousy heaven.

Look for the sale tomorrow at Studio Style Designs We have several new Oak Leafs in the store. There are some for Valentine's Day and some for St. Patrick's Day.

Challenges and Freebie

We are half way threw the month of February already. It's hard to believe that the year is already going by so fast. Have you all started your Christmas shopping yet? I already have a fleece blanket, a quilt, a shower head, a set of measuring cups, a scrubbing bubbles shower cleaner, a salad shaker and a beautiful embroidered backpack in my closet for Christmas. So far I have spent $5.00 on Christmas. Not bad if I say so myself. My daughter bought a brand new house, only the old owners are still living in it. Now she owns two house and is living in a very small efficiency apartment. She has over half of her belongings in storage and more stuff backed away in a garage. Now you figure that one out. The old home owners have until March 31st to move out and right now they too are paying rent to my daughter. I'm the other one paying rent to her. LOL

So much for all of that. You all need to go over to Digi by Designs and get to working on the challenges. There are some really beautiful posting bonuses and they are all made to go together. This first preview is the starter kit for the Color Challenge that I run.

This is what you will get if you post your layout in the Color Challenge Gallery before midnight February 29,2008

This is what you will get if you complete the Heritage challenge and post your Layout in the Heritage gallery.

The month of March is going to have some really great posting bonuses too. Here is a sneak peak at what will be coming up for the month of March. Special thanks to Afridigidiva Designs from Scrappers Zone for the beautiful journal block that was used on the paper.
