Wow, I am finally BACK!

I have been away for quite sometime now. It feels good to finally be back at home.
I was up north taking care of my precious mother during her bout with brain cancer.
She is now residing in Heaven. I miss her something terrible. But, at least she is no longer in
any pain. That is truly a blessing.
I am just getting back to being involved with Stampin' Up! I have missed it.
I will try to get some new projects posted soon....keep checking back.
Thanks for stopping by...Ro

Tuesday's Hot Here At Home!!!

Good morning...............

I am waiting for the air conditioner guy to call and come to Super Charge my Heat Pump!
I am a little fat lady, and I do not deal well with this heat. It has been miserable here the past two days not having my air conditioning at night. Makes it so hard to get a good nights sleep.
This morning is nice. Doors are open. Light little breeze..........but ohhhh, I know what is coming later today. And I don't like it........ask me now, why do I live in Lake County where it is always scortching in the summer?????? Go ahead, I dare you to ask me............lol
OK, enough complaining for this mornings blog.......lol.........I feel better, do you? lol
I thought I would share this really neat card that I made yesterday. It is called a Double Diagonal Pocket Card. Made from one piece of Designer Series Paper (double sided) and a little bit of cardstock. You can embellish in so many ways...........Mine was done quickly and with little bits that were here on the table.Hope you like it.........



So quick and easy, you will love it. If you would like to have the instructions for this card, then email and let me know where to send the Word Document File and I will send it right along. Some of you have already received it as I couldn't wait for you to have the file so that you could start creating your own. This card was posted by Claudia Rosa........and I applaud her work. It was nice of her to share this will all of us. Enjoy.......and send me pictures...
No call yet from that air conditioner guy.........where the heck is he?
Remember this month on Stampin' UP! it is eScape..........keep in touch with friends and family, or just give someone a card or note.........without using the internet...........Make it personal.
I am going to try to add a link to the promotion.....let's see if it works......
Off now to clean up my kitchen. I still have to return all of the stampin' stuff back to the craft room from the dining room table.
Maybe I will get creative and create another card or something.....You never know.....
Have a blessed day...........hugs..Ro

Sunday Evening

Well, it is still hot here. My air conditioner is on the fritz again. I will try it again tomorrow and if it isn't working still, then I am calling for help. I need air......I am a fat lady and cannot tolerate it without my air conditioning. I have the ceiling fan in the kitchen going, and also the portable fan is blowing in the living room. Nice now.

Barbara, Me, Erin and Sarah
OK....Just wanted you all to know what an awesome day it was yesterday. Had my ladies here for the Monthly Downline Meeting. Aren't they beautiful? We always have such a good time. I just love the creativity in these ladies. They always WOW me. We played with the new Fresh Cut Notes. Everyone got to decorate their note card like they wanted. Fun to come up with all different ideas. I just did mine plain, as I was busy handling the web cam, phone with Weesie on the other end in New Hampshire. (How awesome is that?) I took a few pictures of the ladies, and then Sarah's friend Jana took a picture of me with my downline who were here.



And this is my beautiful "Weesie".....can't wait to
meet her at convention the end of July. She is such a doll. Everyone just loves this little gal.......she makes us laugh at every meeting.....and she has a new name now,
"Mrs. Kirkland" hahahahaha
Have to have been there to understand that one.

OK.....here is a snapshot of my simple and really easy card.
Fresh Cut Stamp Set and Fresh Cut Note Cards and envelopes are free with a $400.00 Workshop this month......so call me....to either book your workshop, or place your Virtual Workshop order.

Well, enough blogging for this evening. Hope to be able to start learning how to do this stuff, so that you enjoy coming back to see me....
God Bless ..........and Hugs....Ro

Friday's Busy

Who wouldn't just fall in love with this silly face? My goodness, I cannot believe that "Bailey" our resident labrador is almost 13 years old. She is just such a little doll. Snores worse than my husband Ted.........but they are both quite adoreable.


Bailey
OK, I am writing this edition of my blog and it is only 11:16pm here in California. But, by the time anyone sees it, it will be Friday, hence the title.
It's gonna be busy today as I will be getting things ready for the Monthly Down line Meeting for all of my wonderful Stampin' Up! ladies. I want this to be a special meeting as we are nearing time to leave for our convention in Salt Lake City, Utah, and I want to make sure that everyone is receiving all of the information that they will need to get their items ready for that wonderful experience. They are gonna just love it!!!! If you would like to join us.........just give me a call, and we will get you signed up right away!
Ok, now I am here at my desk and it is now Friday....... 7:33AM.........just finished walking and feeding the dogs and cats, and turning on the deck pond bubbler. Have my coffee, toast and sugar free maple flavored oatmeal in front of me.........yummy.
So, today I have a cute little card that I want to put together for the ladies that will be joining me at the meeting. It is so cute. It has two diagonal pockets on the front of the card that you can stick decorated tags in............soooooo cute............."Weesie"(my downline who lives in Nashua, NH) will get her sample in the mail. I think the ladies will really like it. I will post a picture as soon as I get it made and photographed.
Oh, and today might be a good day to go visit my baby sister, Kathy, as she just finished picking cherries from the top of her tree, and said she would like to share some with me. I think the gals would love to enjoy them also.
Well, time to get moving..........have a wonderful day.........
Hugs and blessing to all of you...................Ro

Tuesday's Agenda



Well, it's a cleaning day here at the Smalley house. Time to mop the floors, vacuum, fill the deck pond, do some laundry, Oh......must feed my canaries.......they love their fresh water for their daily bath. And I love watching them flutter about while trying to dry off. So cute.
I just had a nice visit with one of my down line. She stopped by to use a stamp set that she thought that I had, "Dad's Day", but alas, I don't have that one. I have "Thoughts of Father". Oh well........we had a nice visit anyway.
I am having "Video Night" here tomorrow night. I will be showing a slide show, and videos that I had taken at Convention 2007 and Leadership 2008 and also the Oakland Regional snapshots.
It will be a night for popcorn, soda and lots of laughter. Comfy clothes, slippers, and friends.
Wanna come and join in the fun watching these Stampin' Up! photos slide shows? Give me a call ladies........lots of room on the couch............well, maybe, if we can get Rebecca to give up her comfy spot......lol
I think maybe it might be a good night to make some homemade soup, along with some crusty bread.............yummy..........and then watermelon for dessert........hungry now? Yep me too....lol
OK, enough rambling for today. Maybe I will get creative and make a new card later and add it to the post.
Come back and see me later...........Have a blessed day.........Hugs..Ro
