What a day yesterday was


I got up yesterday to a frozen hot water line. It had gotten down to -5 here over night and the pipes are exposed under the kitchen. I had also been using the fireplace that night so the furnace had not been running.  A combination of the things allowed the hot water line to freeze. When I called my daughter to try and reach her husband she got real nasty with me because the line had froze. Like it had never froze when she lived in this same house. But I did finely speak to David and he told me what he had to do to thaw the lines out before. So over night I left a blow dryer on the hot water line under the kitchen sink and left the tap open a bit. This morning when I got up the line was thawed out and running fine. I called David back this morning and let him know that the problem was fixed and while I had him on the line I told him just how nasty his wife was and told him that he really needed to talk to her.

For some reason she is really angry about something in her life and I guess that mom is the one who she is taking it out on. I don't know if David and her are split up or what. I know that he had some back to Jersey around December 1st but I have no idea if he has gone back to Florida or not. The last anyone said to me about it was around January 7th and at that point he was still in Jersey. It none of my business what goes on between those two so I'm not even going to ask them. I know I had to make a real effort not to get nasty back with Jenn last night no matter how nasty she got with me. I so wanted to tell her off.  But I kept my mouth shut. I will just do my best not to talk to Miss High and Mighty. From now on I will just call David and be done with it.

Oh and how fast justice comes about. Miss High and Mighty already called with a bad case of the "I wants" and mommy had a bad case of the "I don't have's". One should really think about how they treat others before they open their mouths because you never know when you just might need that person.

Anger Management



I had a situation today and rather than get mad I played the get even game with the person. I had made some hearts with my new action and used this other persons lace. The hearts were not being sold nor was the lace was not included in the action, The heart was used on the preview only. This person wanted to say it was a violation of her TOU. I read the TOU that came with the file and it was not a violation. Well, rather than the person wanting free advertising for her business she wanted the previews remade. So I remade the preview using lace that was Made by Acorn Designs and I made sure that when I put the new preview in the store that I included the fact that the Lace was made by Acorn Designs in the description. It don't bother me one bit.

But this is a good lesson for everyone in that even in your preview, don't use anything that does not say it is CU on it even if the item is not being included in your product. Someone might come back and complain that your violating their TOU. Now mind you I think it is pretty petty for a person to do so but there are those who are not happy unless they can find something to complain about.

A commercial use digital scrapbooking designer's tool for Photoshop. Use this action to make lovely custom heart tags for your kit or layout. You can customize each step individually.

Reach out and help someone

Why when we see a layout in a gallery that really needs help is everyone so afraid to say "maybe if you tried this" or How about putting something over here" Or even Those colors are just not working with that photo". Would it not be great if we offered constructive criticism? Then maybe the person can make a better layout next time or they can redo that layout to make it better. Don't just say "good job" on a layout when you know it needs help. Maybe we should get in the habit of always saying something positive about the layout but then saying "CC" and offer some help if the Layout needs it.
