Look At Me!

4 months

Today I am 41/2 months old.  Great Grandma thinks I am a wonder because I can sit up.  Those are my Daddy’s legs in the background.  I want to eat what my Mom and Dad eat.  I don’t like baby food. 

It is supposed to be below zero tonight.  I am have some kind of upper respiratory  bug with low grade fever, no energy and just want to sleep all the time so that is what I have been doing the last few days.  If I am no better on Monday will call the dr.

100_2701I call this post five because that is how many different stamp sets I used to make this card.  This card is in the summer 2011 CTMH catalog and I feel in love with it when I first saw it.  I used the Olivia Paper Packet.  Stamp sets used are Hot Diggity, Inkadinkado, Stampin Up, Hero Arts and an unknown.  Ink colors are Smoothie, Chocolate, Olive and Black.

We are having some frigid temps –15.  When we first moved here 50 years ago it was nothing to have temps to –30 and sometimes in the day time it wouldn’t even get to zero. 

Kathi, I like my Kindle a lot.  I read it when I am doing my treadmill.  I have word game on it and sometimes I will play that while watching the news.  It is very handy to take to appts. when you don’t know how long you will have to wait cause it automatically saves your place for you. 

Sam and Sam had their kitty declawed and one of his paws got infected so now he has a bandage, cone collar and antibiotics. 

Kambrie had her shots earlier this week and was not a  happy camper-was very fussy for a couple of days.

Operation Write Home


I made this card for Operation Write Home’s Sketch 52 Challenge.  This is the first time that I have ever participated in a challenge.   I have been wanting to get involved with OWH for awhile.  I think it is a great idea.  For my card I used the Olivia paper packet.  The bird is from the Hot Diggity set.  Sentiment is from Hero Arts.  The little green flower is from Prima and the center is a Itty Bitty sparkle from CTMH.

I feel like I have been away for ever.  Had some nasty bug that while it wasn’t right out disabling I had no energy.  Some days I would sit at my desk and look out the window and just nothing would come to me. 

Jim gave me a Kindle for Christmas so I did sit at my computer a lot and download dozens of books.  There are a couple of free sites that I like to go to. and and when you choose a book you are directed to Amazon.

We are finally getting some winter weather.  Went snowshoeing the other day. 

Kambrie was 4 months old on the 14th.  She weighs 12 lb 40z and is 24 inches tall.  She is a very happy baby. 

I was re reading some of my earlier posts and my goodness I should really read them before posting.  So many words left out etc.

I Can Almost Smell the Ocean


This card front was in my stash and I have no idea who the stamp manufacturer is since I most likely stamped it at a friends house.  It is layered on Pansy Purple textured cardstock.  I had trouble photographing this card.  Can’t seem to get rid of the shadows.

Talked to Leola yesterday and we decided I would make a 12 x12 shadow box frame with the idea from the cover of the spring CTMH catalog.  Kambrie is 3 and a half months old and already copying everything her parents do.  She pets the dog and the other day Leola was having a glass of water and she could tell Kambrie wanted it.  Leola put the glass so Kambrie could reach it and she put her two hands around the glass and stuck her face in it.  Told Leola she has to put some more videos on their blog. 

It is more like winter here, now we need some snow so I can go snowshoeing. 

Kathi, I chuckled when you said you couldn’t get rid of the little embossing specks.  I don’t have much trouble at home but when I go to classes I have the worst time and I follow the same procedure as at home. 

My word is goal.  One of my goals is to use up my crafting products before buying more. 

I am getting my craft room more and more fine tuned.  And rearranging where I store some of my stuff. 

It is time for supper.
