Daily Grind ~ 2/18/12

Good Saturday morning!!
Taking an awesome scrapping class today at "Life's Memories and More" in Palmer, MA, called Victorian “Steampunk” Chipboard Album . I love trying new things and this promises to be very unique.

Back to work on my cruise album - so many embellishments I received in scrapbook exchanges from fellow cruisers, so i will not need anything else save the pictures and brochures etc to fill it.

Just a great, sunny day to do something I love without interruption. Will miss you LindaBabe!!

Have a wonderful day!!

We're looking at a cruise in September on the Pacific coast. I was soooo sad we had to cancel our Caribbean cruise so I could go to NYC with Sarah. The September cruise would be much closer to our actual 20th anniversary and it stops in San Francisco for 2 days. San Francisco is where we had our honeymoon I like the idea of a Disney cruise for all the extra little touches!

Happy Saturday!

I would love to cruise, DH and I both get motion sick so I am not sure about trying one. Maybe when DD is older.

Been busy this morning

grocery store
PO not just one but 3 to get what I needed
Bank

upload pics and place order
kit pages for tomorrows crop
vacuum house
dinner mac and cheese that didn't get made last night
Talk with DS about plans for next year

DS came home last night, I have seen him for about ten minutes. He will be home this evening so we can have a talk about college life and his plans for next year.

Have a great day!

Cassey

afternoon all

trying to keep myself awake, the caffine didn't help a bit!

spent the morning in the sugarwoods helping. Tapping is complete here at the house and the vaccum is on. Assuming he turned on the sap sucker at the small bush, need to call and check. Still need to drop L off to tom in the largest bush we're abt 1/3 tapped out by the time night falls he should be 1/2-2/3 done.
Thinking I'm going to leave the sugarhouse cleaning till tomorrow my foot and opposite knee are killing from playing mountian goat this am. Told him that is one thing this wife isn't his reply was well I guess I'd better get a 2nd one who is please do dear cause I'm not built for that type of work.

guess I need to clean off the scrap desk and clean up some more hot spots in the house. the biggest challenge will be keeping myself awake.

Have a great day all
Caroline enjoy the class

Hope everyone is having a great day. Morgan got a last minute invite to sleep over a friend's last night but ended up coming home around 1:00 am. I'm tired. She'd been 'off' pretty much all week, so I should have known better, but...she was complaining of a cough and sore throat, but didn't cough once when she got into her own bed.

We celebrated MIL's birthday with Chinese food and cake and ice cream for lunch. My boss gave me a beautiful cyclamen for Valentine's Day on Monday, but they are toxic to cats, so we re-gifted it to her The last thing I need is for Meezer to start chewing on that.

I got the majority of my pieces designed for the Cricut Cuts Swap in the Craftroom last night. I won't have time to start cutting tomorrow, but maybe Tuesday - Morgan has vacation next week.

Happy Weekend!

The class was really good - would never have made anything like this as i do not own a Cuttlebug, and the chipboard album was cut with one of the dies. Used the Graphic 45 papers to create it - omg, people do have such patience. This instructor, Fern, was wonderful. Had so many embellishments to add to each page.
I had never heard of "Steampunk" until i saw the Graphic 45 paper. Love it!!!!

Disney cruises can be as adult as you want them! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Palo and the quiet pool, and quiet cove cafe and the fact that the kids are pretty much tied to the kids clubs and the mickey pool. (we're an old couple with only borrowed kids, and Disney suits us just FINE - 13 cruises for me & 8 for the man)

Steam punk is SERIOUSLY cool - I discovered it when I was looking at Vegas shows last year. Can't WAIT to get my hands on that Album!

Thing is, the album is so unique, you don't want to put pictures in it, or give it away!!!
Lindababe, promise you will enjoy creating this one.
Hey Buff - wish i had known you were in the area.
