Haven't blogged in a while...

So, I thought I would get on here and chat a bit.

I have started attending Bug's Night Out in Rocklin, CA sponsored by local Cricut Designers Monique Griffith and Wendy Lawrence. Am starting to meet some local scrappers and make friends. It has been awesome. I have met Kathy and Elaina (name/spelling?) and just last week I met Rita. Next Friday is a Cricut Circle Meet-up, and then 2 weeks after that another Bug's Night out.

Have been spending most of my free time getting our garden going for the summer. We increased it by about 60 %. We have corn; green and soy beans;iceberg and romaine lettuce, white and green cauliflower; broccoli; lemon and pickling cucumbers; brussel spouts; Anaheim, Italian long and inferno peppers; green, yellow and red bell peppers; Roma, Brandywine, Green Heirloom, Yellow, mortgage lifter, Pineapple and Sun Sugar tomatoes; orange and red carrots; beets; garlic; okra; yellow, red and walla walla onions; tomatillos; and plan on putting in potatoes.

Now, my husband doesn't think I will have any luck with the potatoes, but we shall see. Everything I have read on it says they are super EASY to grow. And considering how often the potatoes in my bin grow "eyes", I think it will work fine. Actually, hopefully I get to prove him wrong!

Anyway, my kids are both in college or about to be in college, my grandson is getting more adorable by the day (I got to babysit him for the first time last weekend! And we had a BLAST!), work seems to get busier and I seem to have fewer hours in a day.

Love to all and I will try to be more consistent!

Good Friday Morning!

Tomorrow, i will get to see one of my best friends, whom I haven't seen to almost TWO years, when she up and moved away to Nevada and then Alabama! Hubby and I are driving to Fallon NV (can you say 'in the middle of nowhere' LOL) to see her, as she is out visiting her daughter. Can't wait. Plus, it will be nice to take a little road trip with hubby!

The grandson is finally here! Colten Curtis Janway finally arrived after 20 hours of labor and 3 days early, on November 10, 2009 at 8:10 pm. 7 pounds 11 ounces and20.5 inches long! I have gotten to see him three times. Mom is doing good and Dad is happy but tired. he is already sleeping for about 3 hours at a stretch, but he pretty much eats whenever he is awake, sometimes nursing for up to an hour! He's a little piggy!

The really amazing part about this is that Van (my hubby and the Grandpa) who wasn't super thrilled about the baby, was checking out the baby clothes when we went to sportmans warehouse on Friday! Now on to scrapping the baby!

9 days and counting!

Well, the grand-son is due next Friday, November 13th! yep! I hope he shows on his due date. Friday the 13th would be very cool! I can't wait to take pictures of him, and see my step-son as a daddy! He will be such a good daddy!

Sorry I haven't posted much, but I have been EXTREMELY busy ast work and home. My youngest is a Junior in high school and i spend a fair amount of time carting her around to different stuff.

Talk to you all later!

So, today is my birthday! Yesterday was supposed to be my "family day" birthday, the day where my family does stuff for me and I get the whole day of?!??!?! NOT happening! TWO fights with my youngest daughter, ONE fight with my oldest daughter, and a husband who got crabby cause the daughters wouldn't help cook dinner. UUUUUGGGGGHHHHHHHH!

BUT, hubby did get me a VERY sweet singing card. The outside has two sets of feet peeking out from under a sheet, obviously a man's feet and a woman's feet. On the outside it says, "In the morning, at night, and in themiddle of the afternoon", on the inside it says "you make my dreams come true" and it plays the song "You Make My Dreams Come True." He even signed it with 3 hearts (which he NEVER does. He also got me a bag of my favorite candy: Hershey's Kisses with Almonds. He abd I will go out later and probably get me something together, but with the economy so bad, and the budget so tight, I just wanted to wait anyway. Maybe it'll be new clothes when I drop a few sizes!

Anyway, just had to bitch! THanks for listening! My coworker/assistant made me a beautiful beaded necklace.

New Art Poject

I saw in a magazine a long time ago a piece of art that I thought was really cool. It was a group of tags that were embellished and collaged with scrapbooking supplies, then arranged on a mat and framed to hang on the wall.

I thought this was a cool idea, so I decided to do one for my office at work.

Here are the pictures:

This is the completed piece.

Here are close-ups of all the tags
