they said we would get socked and boy did we

hi everyone sorry I am so behind in my postings that is one of my resolutions for the new year is to atleast try to update my blog atleast 2x a week among other things. now the questions is will this actually happen I hope so!!!!!! we got socked with almost a foot of snow that started at 5am or so. I thought it would just be like yrs before we wont get it well we sure did this time.
anyways I will be adding a new pic of my granddaughter tommorrow and some thing that I made out of plastic canvas. I guess I am back into PC again I really enjoy doing it again I guess its immediate gratification (u know what I mean lol) I guess I need to go let the dog out and see how much more we got. Snickers loves the snow I dont know if thats weird for a labador or not not sure will check it out
comments are very welcomes on my postings so plz comment to your hearts contents
hugs for now

OMG can time fly any faster

Good evening, I cant believe how fast the last 2 weeks have gone by. Maybe thats a good thing. I have my swaps to still finish before Monday or Tuesday. I still have some last minute Christmas gifts to get out including cards. Those that havent gotten a card from me by the middle of next week PLEASE forgive me. Its been so hectic here the last week or so. Sometimes I dont know whether I am coming or going. I am not ready for Christmas yet, but for my husband and I we believe that the TRUE meaning of Christmas is every day 365 days a year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Christmas has become too comerialised (sp) u know what I am trying to say.
Kids now a days want this and that, why because their friend have it or they saw it on tv, they are sometimes not even happy with what you may get them which mite be specially made because its not what they wanted. Oh well thats life. I am hoping and praying hard that things will turn around for the economy cause it really needs to be turned especially in Michigan because of the big auto industry. well I guess thats for it tonite. hopefully I will start writing every nite.

Ive been laying low lately

i guess I wasnt as far behind as I thought. I have been busy making things for my swaps as well as things for christmas gifts. I gained a bunch of sisters this year so thats adds to my list alot. Then Earl and I just celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary we went out to dinner it was nice although both of us were sick with something not sure what but hopefully we are on the mend now. We are going over to my daughters house this weekend to celebrate thanksgiving and our anniversary I may have mentioned that on one of my othe rpostings sorry if its a repeat. I have been having fun printing out patterns for plastic canvas which I am now back into it alot more than crocheting. I may look into selling some of my handmade things on the site called Etsey although i need to find out more about it before i do that, u all know the usual questions, how much does it cost how much of what i sell do I get??? There are so many scams out there. I keep getting the Nigera scam letters saying that if i send them x amount of dollars then I will get over 35 million dollars well I have some swamp land i would like to sell them to and see what they would think JUST DONT FALL FOR IT ITS A SCAM
love and hugs
till next time
