Christmas 2011

My favorite decorating this year.  I saw something fancy in a magazine and took what we had and made my version with Mike's Grandmother's gold ornaments and candy garland and my stars.

Ethan my son and Charlie my China son and Andrew visiting with us over Thanksgiving decorated the tree.  True to Ethan's words that Mom's picky when I stood back when they were done I noticed that they had grouped like ornaments in groups of threes and I LOVED it.  Shocked me and I think I'll release tree decorating in the future.  I might move up to supervisor like my sister.

A Major Award

I won a major award!  I actually am the first to win the WINKS Ugly Sweater Contest.
I didn't have a Christmas sweater to wear so I was told to create.
Create I did - the GW (GoodWill) had the sweater and $1.95 ornament bag.
Add a Dollar tree door ornament with bells and you have a 'tacky' sweater.
Now the mini sweater is my prize along with the certificate and a skein of yarn.
I'll post the yarn latter. 

Merry CHRISTmas everyone!

Dear Chrome I only use you for Blogger so there!

So after weeks of no browser I used to use taking my comments on blogs I downloaded Chrome.  Well Chrome I only use you for Blogger so there.

I hated that I was so involved in moving that I missed checking blogs, but now I'm back and with my new house Yes that's right my old one sold!!!  I have a sewing room of sorts in one end of our massive bedroom and when the house sells I'm shopping for a new machine.

I browsed the blogs tonight and it was so good to see my friends and inspiration. I just have to get my photos going again to show what I started for Halloween and such.

Happy November everyone!

Introducing Asus

Introducing Asus
My wonderful new 17.3" display that is easy on the eyes.
I have been with no home computer for a few years.
I'm in the process of figuring how to get the pictures from my work Mac to this baby.
I love it!
We have money from her estate so I remember her with this purchase.
