A week has gone....

and there is no kitty.  We weren't able to get the kitten because my friend couldn't get back in touch with the gentleman who had it.  So..... we wait.  We actually want a full grown cat.  A cat that might not have had a wonderful family to love it.  As my daughter says a "fat lazy cat."  My son wants a kitten.  And maybe there is room in the house for both.  We will see.

Work has been absolutely crazy.  That's all I'll say.  C R A Z Y

I'm still playing with Pinterest.  If you come by here and haven't tried it yet, leave me a note and I'll send you an invitation.  It's nothing but a huge web page of inspiration.  You name it, it's there.  Sometimes, it's just fun to find something that hasn't been pinned already.  I did discover a pet peeve.  If you want to "pin" something, please make sure you open the post that the image is in to a separate window.  So if there is a picture in this post, click on the permalink and open in a new window.  That way when the next person clicks on the image in Pinterest, it goes to where the picture is and not to the main page of the blog/store/web page.  *s*

Other than that, life is life.  I'm grateful to be alive.  I turned 48 a couple weeks ago.  I have amazing children. A great job.  Super church.  Nice place to live.  Vehicle to drive.  So many people don't have half of that or even a third.  I'm thankful to be so blessed in my life.

Niters. I think I'm headed to bed early.

Belt Deconstruction

Breezy gave me a couple of her belts that have fallen apart.  They are made of these really rows neat "brads."  As the first belt was peeling on the back, I grabbed the peeling piece and yanked it.  When it came apart from the rest of the belt, all the little "brad" pointy pieces came up.  This made it easier to straighten them and remove them.

Here's the pictures:

I'm going to use these "brads" on the covers of journals.

Colors and Pinterest

Today, I had a luggage run.  Not too long.  Chaz and Breezy cooked dinner.  It was so good!  Sirloin roast with potatoes, carrots, and corn on the cob cooked in the crock pot.  I have no idea what sauces/spices/seasonings they used but it was fabulous! I'm letting them cook more often.

I spent some time reading journals and "pinning" to my Pinterest page.  Here are a couple noteworthy before I go to bed.

I have found some amazing creative blogs.  Blogs of women who have been published in some of my most favorite magazines ever.  Which ones you ask?  Why that's be nearly anything published by Stampington.  Somerset Studio, Somerset Life, Artful Blogging, Art Journaling, and so many more.  Ah....  These are the magazines I splurge on when I get extra into the household every now and again.

My friend called earlier.  She was making a delivery and there was a little cat outside that kept trying to get into the house she was delivering to.  She said the owner offered her the kitten.  She asked me if I wanted it.  But of course!  She is going to call the man back and ask him if he was serious.  If he's serious, Breezy and I'll go get him tomorrow!

Just wanted to post a couple things that I made for work today.

and this:

I posted a set of them inside the bathrooms, one set on the door to the clinic, and one set on the outside of one of the bathrooms.  :)

I'm thinking about taking my window with the chicken wire to work and using it to hang photos and artwork on during the year.  Not sure yet.  Will have to see what my nurse thinks about it.

Tomorrow I'll post pictures of the banners I made.

I haven't been here in a while as you can see.  I am not on any creative teams for digi-scrapping right now.  I so need to take my computer in for repairs.  Both the usb ports on the right side are messed up. I've gotten a memory error and a display error in last couple months.  Of course, I'm over due for a backup and for a defrag. But it has been virus scanned thank goodness. :)

I am thinking about starting a new blog.  This one has been around a while.  I'm thinking photo blog?  Art journaling?  Digiscrapping?  Who knows.  Just feel like it's time for a change.

School starts back up for the kids on Monday.  Breezy is a Junior in high school and Chaz is a Freshman in college.  Hard to believe we're at that point!

I'm headed to bed soon.  Another early morning so I can get to SHO for training.  Niters!
