18, July, 2012
Here i am again after such a long absence, this time i am trying to learn how to blog with the cards that I've made,so that my cutomers will see what is new in my daily life. These two cards were made tonight in Lourae's class. she has so much talent that i want to share with all of you what we work on. These are her creations and so simple to do. Hope that anyone following will be encourage to dig in and try these out. We used a cuttle bug on both cards, and direct to paper with ink on both embossing. A Little paper piecing on the school bus and just inked up dots (about 5) and stamped the little backgound for the rooster. All products used are from Close to my Heart.

A year has gone by since i set up this blog and at the time I thought I would use it on a monthly basis. Well that didn't happen,because i let some negative feedback get to me. Someone I love said that this is dumb! Maybe it is to her, but to me it's like a family/friend newsletter. Ya Know some things have to be learned over and over and over. Which is stay with what you believe in, only you can make yourself happy..

Last year I lost some very important people in my life and I figured that I handled it fairly well . Billy Bob has been in and around my mind so much it feels like he will show up at the door any moment now. My granny has been gone for more than a year and some of her words come to me so often. My Mother in Law has been gone over a year and half and i get such a happy thought thinking of some of her actions and way of life that she gives me smiles quite often. So many of her grandchildren have some qualities like hers, so we just live on through our family.Thank Goodness. I also lost along with their families a Uncle Leemon and his grandson Brandon and a lately his daughter Gail. We also lost a brother in law from Snowflake AZ. So it must be our time to let family members go to their second estate, and a time for me to reflect on what life is all about and i know that it is meant to be HAPPY at least as much as you can make it possible, so how do you be happy? Lots of ways, for me is probably different than it is for you. One of my happy times is when I have realized I have more friends than I realized and there love for me. My family that is so loving and caring even when their lives is filled with so much worldly things.

Of Course physically what makes me happy is making CARDS and sending them to family and friends. Plus all of the other hobbies that i have and fill my days. I recently read about 13 things that will uplift and Nurture yourself with. I want to try.

I guess just typing this out is therapeutic for me and i will get on with every day life soon.

So for today I'll finish and return a lot sooner I hope. I added a play list of music i enjoy so I hope you will too.

Bobbie Jean made the flags for our Cowboys and Indians game "capture the flag" with comments from Cassie, saying "This is going to be so much fun."
I know I don't know how to play this, but apparently the next generation does. They have played it at conferences and so forth. We want all the family to get involved. It will take up a big area and we have found just the spot, close to camp. You will have to have some strategies to steal the other teams flag. ( Bobbie Jean will have the rules and game outline at the reunion)

Tuesday, July 7, 2009

well we have created some interest for the reunion at least. Most of the comments have been about the Cook Off, so i will attempt to explain some of it. We are organizing as questions come up, but i'm pretty sure we have a handle on it.

Whom will be in your group is not known by you until the Friday night at camp.We have already determined your teams but will not devulge until Friday night. I will give a list of things provided by us your host and a we won't provide list, that might help you in deciding what you want to bring.
We will Provide
Salad fixins/ranch dressing
Cake Mix/ Can of fruit
Paper plates/ware

We won't provide
Cooking Utensils
Some of the rules will be you can bring or borrow anything in camp to help you prepare this meal. You will be cooking for about 10 people.

Any question please contact any of the three of us, Shasta, BJ, Janice

4th of July

A day to celebrate the freedoms that have been sacrificed for us that I am truely grateful for.I wish that the original freedoms would still be intact but slowly we are loosing them. I am grateful for all family and friends that have made American Great! I have been a fan of Sarah Palin and am sad to see her give up her governorship but it must be for a good reason, at the very least to save the tax payers money for all the lawsuits happening to her.

Reunion News:

Thea, Maddie and Tinker have all agreed to be in charge of the children younger than themselves during the Friday and Saturday Night Casino Tournaments. Great I think!!!
