just a note

because I haven't had a chance to post, not that I have many folks reading my blog lately, but I feel like I should post something about my lack of posting. I've been pretty busy with work, family gatherings, and home life. I'm sad that I haven't had a chance to do any cross-stitching or scrapbooking. I really love my photos and want them in albums. I did spend the night last weekend with my cousin in LA (Los Angeles) and we went through my photos and reminisced until the wee hours. Sheesh, she had the magnifying glass out!

I also haven't had a chance to read all the blogs that I've subscribed to, so I feel really out of it. Maybe this weekend I can take some time out and catch up, but I feel like I'm heading out-of-town again -- we'll see.

Take care.

Yikes!

Has it been that long? Well, I've been busy at work, then I got involved with digital scrapbooking. Yes, I did a few pages, but they are just practice pages. I'm looking forward to getting Photoshop Elements so I can dive in. I have a couple of scrapbook programs, but I'm not pleased with the results.

Okay, my cousin had his wedding last weekend. It was beautiful, the reception was at Pala Casino and most of us reserved rooms and stayed overnight. We had a blast! I took tons of pictures, but I have yet to look at them and get copies made. I need to do that tomorrow, so I can show my other cousin when I visit her this weekend. I tell you, my weekends are busy!

Oh, and as for St. Pat's Day, I've been doing all kinds of activities with my kids at work. That has kept me busy as well! I found most of my ideas online, which I have learned alot! I married an Irishman, but I think there are traditional foods that he wasn't aware of -- and he is from Cork, Ireland. It's been a fun to "research" and makes it fun for me to share them with others. I even made a cd of Irish music!

Plus, my Avon biz has got me in a tizzy. All the sudden, I have orders that I didn't expect. It has been slow lately, but looks like things are picking up, if I focus a little bit more than I have been.

Take care, I'll try to post more and show a little of my creative side, which has been minimal lately (although dd has been cross-stitching like mad).

Halloween treat bags

Good morning! A quick craft share with mini treat bags. Very simple to put together, I'm looking forward to making these because I love...
