Morning all in Blog land

Just want to remind everyone about Moo Two's Christmas Express pulled out of the barn on Monday, with the first gift being hid in the store categories of Christmas or Winter. Going to be some really great hybrid projects you will collect this month. 

My mother-in-law get some of the coolest emails and I wanted to share one with you all. 
This place means a lot to me in my heart due to my husband being retired military. 
Rest easy, sleep well my brothers.
Know the line has held, your job is done.
Rest easy, sleep well.
Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held.
Peace, peace, and farewell...
Readers may be interested to know that these wreaths -- some 5,000 -- are donated by the Worcester Wreath Co. of Harrington, Maine . The owner, Merrill Worcester, not only provides the wreaths, but covers the trucking expense as well. He's done this since 1992. A wonderful guy. Also, most years, groups of Maine school kids combine an educational trip to DC with this event to help out. Making this even more remarkable is the fact that Harrington is in one of the poorest parts of the state.
Please share this with everyone on your address list. You hear too much about the bad things people do. Everyone should hear about this. 

and have you ever wondered what the 12 Days of Christmas meant or even had to do with Chrstimas
check this out 
There is one Christmas Carol that has always baffled me. What in the world do leaping lords, French hens, swimming swans, and especially the partridge who won't come out of the pear tree have to do with Christmas?
This week, I found out.
From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly. Someone during that era wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics. It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their church. Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality which the children could remember. -The partridge in a pear tree was Jesus Christ.
-Two turtle doves were the Old and New Testaments.
-Three French hens stood for faith, hope and love.-
-The four calling birds were the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John.
-The five golden rings recalled the Torah or Law, the first five books of the Old Testament.
-The six geese a-laying stood for the six days of creation.
-Seven swans a-swimming represented the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit--Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy.
-The eight maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes.
-Nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit--Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control.
-The ten lords a-leaping were the ten commandments.
-The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful disciples.
-The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of belief in the Apostles' Creed.
So there is your history for today. This knowledge was shared with me and I found it interesting and enlightening and now I know how that strange song became a Christmas pass it on if you wish.'
Merry Christmas Everyone

Good Morning Everyone

I have been a bit busy lately, lots of things have gone on since the 1st of Sept.  This is my month in a nutshell. Stitchy Bear Stamps - where I sell paper packs, accidentally deleted a file on her ftp and lost her whole store. So I have to redo all my previews, zips and upload everything to the store again. She is now betting things back on track. Store is almost done but you can go check it out. She has redone it to be more customer friendly. There is Tuesday Thru Thursday Spree Sale. All Fantasy is 25% OFF come check it out.

Then there is my baby's birthday and the start of school.

You all know my favorite place to hang out is Moo Two Designs.  Donna who owned Moo Two Designs has some health problems that have not let her run the store the way she wants too so she handed the store over to me. I am now the proud owner of Moo Two Designs. I am both honored and a bit weary LOL. I know the responsibilities of running a store and so hope I can do Donna proud.

My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Software

I have had the opportunity this past week to play around with some digital scrapbooking software. I know I have used my programs in the past and have always been very disappointed with them. Cause either they were too complicated to use or I couldn't do or move things where I wanted them to. I just couldn't get the software to do what I wanted it to do. I know that is important to me, I have to be able to open the software and get right to work. Working on a layout with new software is how I learn things and when I want more complicated things that is when I go to the help or read me documents to see if I can do what I want to do. LOL
I know with designing kits I most use Micro Soft Digital Imaging (which isn't available anymore, we are talking old school program here LOL) and I have gotten better with Photoshop. But for doing a scrapbook page I want sometime simple to use to create that layout, but I also want to be able to bring in my creations into that layout too.
Well guess what, this software lets you do that. I was able to create this layout in their software in minutes.

I didn't add many embellishments cause I don't have them all finished yet, but the paper is my design. The doodle is by My Memories which is included with the software, the flowers are also included with the software. It comes with quite a bit of things to work with. Templates too. I really loved how I could very easily make rounded text. It was a piece of cake, let me tell you I can be very software challenged. LOL but with this it was so easy.
The one thing that impressed me the most with this software was that you could import PSD (photoshop files) and PDFs (adobe files) into the software and it reads them so that you can work with them, way too freakin cool if you ask me cause not many problems that I know of do that. I really loved using the software. I think you would too. If your new to digital scrapbooking, and don't have a user friendly program, you have got to get this one and if you are a seasoned digital scrapbooking you would love this software too.

And I have the opportunity to give away one program to one of my followers, so this is what you have to do. Go to My Memories Gallery - just click on the words. Pick your favorite layout, post in my comments your choice with the layout of your choice,. I will put everyone in a drawing to win a free copy of this software. Good Luck

What a Beautiful Day

My nephew Charles (Chas) wedding day finally arrived Saturday. It was such a beautiful day for the them. It was to hot or too cold. The day was just gorgeous. They did such a good job getting the church beautiful for them. They made such a gorgeous couple. Here is a picture of the happy couple who as we speak are lounging around on the beaches of Jamaica.

I also wanted to show you the favor that I did for the wedding. Laura Bea, Chas and his brother Anthony helped me with a few of them. We made 199 of these little bags
  Inside each bag were 4 hugs and 4 kisses 
on the bottom of 2 of the hugs and 2 of the kisses was a personalized sticker 

They had such a good time and made such a beautiful couple. I am so happy for both of them and love them dearly.

Painted Garden

I know I never got back to posting a picture of my new kit a few days ago. Just got really busy with getting the final touches done on the wedding.
Here it is, my newest kit.

New Kit, New Happenings

I have a new kit I have been working on for some time. I have no idea how some people can get 2, 3, or 4 new kits out a month, I am lucky I can get one kit out a month LOL. Drives me crazy. 

But first some new things in the stores I am in. 
Stitchy Bear Stamps has a brand new collaboration out for June called Picnic/4th of July. Some really awesome stamps and papers in there. Just think of all the things you could create with it. 

Moo Two Designs also has a brand new Collaboration kit out called Chillin'.  It's for all those teen photos you have, this has some awesome pieces to it. 

  My newest kit isn't in the store yet, it should be either today or tomorrow.  Most of the flowers in this kit, some of the elements were all painted by me digitally. 
Here is a preview of it. Coming soon, that is the one thing I need to finish OMG I forgot. I will post it later today. Bye all for now

Hello Everyone

It has been a while since I posted last. Things have been busy and stressful the last few weeks. First the laptop went to the repair shop with a problem with Window's 7 and came back clean as a whistle. They had to do a whole clean out, right back to factory settings. Which meant I lost everything on the laptop. But I did have almost all of it backed up online, except for a few files cause one of the problems that occurred was Windows was preventing my online back to back up. But thankfully I only lost a few files. But I have been really busy trying to my EDR to match what is backed up online. I would have never realized how long it takes to download what has been stored online. I was like OMG, so I am doing a little at a time. 
But next step is to clean out the EHD of files I don't want to make room for the files that are online that I do want. 
Today I decided thou I was going to work on my blog and get it looking the way I want it to. It's OK, no sure if I like the background or not but we will see how it goes. 

Then it was lunch time, had a wonderful Chicken BBQ, from Cody Fire Department, they have the best chicken bbq in town. If you live in Fulton, NY you need to go get bbq today. 

I have been working on things, I have been busily working on my nephews wedding. Save the dates, Invitations, favors and now the programs from the wedding. Then on Friday making meatballs. Saturday the wedding is over with. I know they can't wait. 
here is a look at the save the date and invitations I did. 
Can't show you save the dates till I scan one, that is one of the folders I lost and wasn't backed up online either. But here is the invitation, RSVP card and reception card.

Funny Story about Kimberly

I have a really cute story to share with you all about my daughter, Kimberly. Kimberly's bottom teeth have been loose for a long time and she just doesn't play with them enough to get them to fall out. Her permanent teeth have grown in behind  her baby teeth on the bottom. In Feb she was out sledding in our back yard with her cousin, Brasen.  Brasen decided to run in front of her while she was sledding down the hill and she crashed into him, knocking her front tooth out of her mouth. It was just the tiny bit loose. It kind of traumatized the poor kid, to have blood dripping from her mouth, her hand was all bloody. Poor Kid.  Now there is no hope to get her to get those bottom teeth out.  First tooth gone and we told her we would write to the tooth fairy to let her know that her tooth was lost in the snow. She was so worried that the the tooth fairy wouldn't be able to find her tooth.

 A couple weeks ago, Kimberly told me that she was having problems seeing the blackboard at school and I had noticed that she was standing and watching TV in front of the TV. So we decided to take her and get her eyes checked, well she is nearsighted.  Yesterday we went and picked her up from school to go get her first pair of glasses. She looks so cute in them.

We decided to take her to Apple Bee's for dinner, she has been doing really well at school. While there she went to the bathroom and came out saying, "Mommy I lost a tooth, and can't find it" Oh no not another one, she lost one of her bottom teeth in the bathroom, but I think she might have swallowed it and not realized it.
So she said to me, "Mommy can we write the tooth fairy another letter and let her know that I lost my tooth here in the bathroom, I said of course. Now again she is worried the tooth fairy won't find her tooth again.,
This morning she comes running up the stairs to show me she has lost another tooth. Her other front tooth fell out sometime during the night and she can't find it. She said to me "Mommy, do you think I will ever have a tooth to put under my pillow? "I am making a lot of work for the tooth fairy."  poor kid. And I do think she has swallowed this one too, cause it wasn't in the couch or on the floor. My darling little girl.
