Busy Cookie Day

I worked hard today. I am totally exhausted...(lol...not really) So here are the cookies I made today and the boxes I produced. Aren't they totaly adorable? The one that says Happy Holiday right one the front....that took many hours of planning to get it just right...(NOT...it was a total amazing fluke!...but it works for me!)

Cookie Box

Today I am making cookies for my neighbors and I realzied that I did not have enough cookie tins. What am I going to do? I did not want to put them on paper plates (all thought that is how a lot of them are coming to me!) I started ringing my hands and pulling my hair until I put on my thinking cap. What about the Martha Stewart cookie box that I got as a KNK cut file.... So....I cut one out...of course I ruined the first piece of paper because I forgot to cut the pounce lines as pounce so the whole thing cut apart. LOL....

I had purchased just last week, the Christmas Glitter Stack at Joann's. I did not have a plan for it but I thought the papers were pretty. The paper is really heavy duty. It cut perfectly. I used some of that transparency film that we got stacks of from Georgia, and red tape on the seams....Cute huh?

Polsia, I know you are going to be all over this!

Back to cutting and baking! Merry Christmas!

Tied Quilts

It has been a while since I posted. Just too dang busy but today I made two quilts. One for Chloe (the Soccer balls) and one for her teacher a huge Green Bay Packers Cheesehead. I could not find Packer fabric but I think this will work! The picture does not show it but it is all foot ball sayings like Pass, Goal, Field Goal, etc. The first quilt (Chloe's) took me a couple of hours to make today at Thursday Therapy....Then I cam home and helped at school making gingerbread houses with the kids. When school got out Chloe and I went to Joann's and bought the fabric for her teacher. Then we had to wait in line to cut, wait in line to pay and drive home. I got home about 4:00 and the second quilt was done by 5:00. I am very please with them! (I am going to make one for myself and put it under the tree from Santa to me!!!!) Soccer starts up again for Chloe Jan 8, so she will use this to wrap up in on those very cold days.

Catching Up!

Okey so I am not a very faithful blogger. I have some catching up to do! We bought a 35 foot Fleetwood motor home. It is in great condition and we got a smoking deal! Here are some pictures.

And here are some interior pictures. Phil installed new t.v's and a new stereo. We also replaced the fans and all the lights. We bought a new mattress for the bed and I dry cleaned all the drapes, and the bed skirt and bed spread. That reminds me I need to go pick the spread up from the cleaners! I cleaned all the upholstery and chairs. It is so clean now! Our first trip is going to be October 10. Chloe gets our of school 1/d and we are headed down to Karchner Caverns. That is the beginning of her Fall break and Phil took Monday off so we should have a fun little mini trip.

Monsoon Storm August 28,2008

Wow Wow Wow

I am not sure what you all experienced las night with the storm but it was totally AWESOME here. It was rated as a Catagory 1 hurricane. The worst in recorded history for Arizona. This has been the 10th wettest monsoom season in recorded history (since the 1800's something).
We seemed to be right in the eye of the storm. We did not experience the high winds but the sound of the constant (and I mean constant) lightening was deafening. I took some pictures and will post them here. We had no damage to any or our trees or property . We did not even have any debris in our pool. We always have debris in the pool. You will be able to tell how very windless it was in my pictures if you look at the palm trees. This storm went on from about 9:00 pm and continued right over head until 1:00 am. I have never in my life seen constant lightening strikes or constatn thunder like that. It was truely God's power at work.

It is too bad that the brand new Tempe Bubble for foot ball practice was totally demolished. Only open less then a month and $8.4 M all wiped out last night. Phil said it looked like a war zone around his office in Phoenix with downed trees and power poles.



Okey for my BFF and good friend Polsia I am finally posting my inchies.

Okey my friend, it is now your trun to post your inchies on your blog. I have put them aside for the time being...after all we have until the end of January to finish them. I need to work on my recipe cards first and then the ATC swap. That is going to be so much fun. Stacy did a great job picking a theme....a picture of each of us as a child! I can't wait to work on those. Okey I am off for now. Bye Have a Great Day!

ATG Gun is Done!

I finally got my ATG done in time for Thursday Therapy tomorrow. I had problems but they finally worked their way out. There must be 10 coats of paint and Preserve It on this poor puppy. I do love the colors and it matches my Amy Bulter bag perfectly now! I also wanted to post the pictures of the Creative Memories 12 x12 (white)frame and the 8 x8 (black). Here they are along with a picture of my new hanging light for the dinette that was damaged by my painter's (probably won't use them again!)

Okey, I am done for now. I have to go pick up Chloe from School and then it will be time to do homework and start on dinner. Tonight I am making a curried chicken salad with grapes, Mandarin oranges,celery water chestnuts and of course chicken.....Yummmy!
