Just checking in...

I have been sick for the past week and I am just starting to feel like I can do something creative. Today I started planning out my next two months of classes. I also decided to do a class at Scrapbook Fun Fest and ordered the paper for it.

Well, I lost two more followers, so now I need 12 followers and I can give away the Blog Candy that is burning a hole in its mail packaging.

I am planning another Blog Hop for the Limelighters soon. Maybe, I won't tell you quite yet. Still in the planning stages.

Off to take more Nyquil and sleep. Sleep has been good.

Class peek and Our New Blog

Here are a few peeks at the Birthday Reminder Mini Album we are doing in class this week. After I finish up on Tuesday I am going to put the kits up for sale on Etsy. The gals who were at class on Saturday really liked the project.

On to other Dewey news:

Since we hope our house sells this year and we can start on our adventure of RVing across the US. I started another blog our friends and select family can follow read and follow us. It is

For now I am updating once a week, but as we really get started on our travels I will update more. However, I won't really tell anyone where we are until we are on the road and then I will tell where we have been.

Still waiting for another, now, 10 followers so I can give away some Blog Candy. Won't you be my follower?

The Nattys

Yesterday we went to Seven Feathers Casino Resort and watched the Oregon Ducks play in the Nattys. It was an amazing game, right up to the last second and Auburn won, but that's the way the cookie crumbles. Even though the Ducks lost, I can't say it enough, it has to be the bestest football game I ever saw.

There was food and anything you wanted to drink (non-alcoholic) with the admission ticket and lots of give-aways. 5 huge TV screens. I screamed and cheered so much I lost my voice.

Friends gave us a free room for the night so we didn't have to drive home in the freezing fog. Thanks guys.

Now I have a ton of class prep to do for this Saturday and Tuesday next week. Here is a peek at the cover of our project. More on it later.

BTW - All my prizes for the Blog Hop were sent off - so to those of you receiving them, please let me know if they got there AOK. I hope you all like them.

New Year, New Beginnings

I am really having a hard time trying to give-away Blog Candy. Who Knew?! I lost another follower so now I need (Edited) 9 new followers before I give-away a lot of goodness.

As you all know we are totally down-sizing everything so we can sell the house and buy an RV and hit the road for a couple of years. So I have lots of stuff I would rather give to my loyal followers rather than anyone else.

Yesterday I went through all my school boxes. Whew, talk about memories. I was ruthless and I am sending a lot of my books to my sister who is currently teaching pre-school and my nieces who both have degrees and teaching credentials in Special Ed. They took after their aunt. I am so proud of them!

I have been working of a couple of big projects. As soon as they are finished I will be sharing and putting kits up for sale on Etsy. Also my DH has been building some great stuff for crafting enthusiasts. They will be on sale on Etsy also by the end of the week. Can't wait to share.
