4 1 1

I always wanted my own business, then I could be like my boss - show up at work 2 hours a day, 2  maybe sometimes 3 days a week. Hey, I could even just show up at lunch time while everyone is gone and leave the paychecks and never have to see my employees.

Flower gardens and veggie gardens and pot plants are all nice and pretty, until it gets so dog gone hot and dry that they don't get enough watering and I'm gone and forget about them for a few days.

I am told my tv does have more channels than TBS, HGTV, and CNN

I met a couple of people who said they live in my neck of the woods. They say it's a small world.

A diet is not coke and bag of cookies.

Hooray for holidays. It's Memorial Day Weekend....Enjoy the water and sun.

Something New

I would like to consider myself  "in-the-know", but I will admit I found this on another blog, and I don't remember what blog  I saw it on. . But it is so simple and and I don't know how I didn't notice it myself.  It is kinda new and is available for us to take advantage of. I think it is so cool and I would love to use it to it's full potential. So first, thank you to the anonymous blog that taught me this.

So for the few of  you who click on me sometimes to see what's new, I share this with you = You can make extra pages on your blog to showcase what ever you would like. Example, see the words below my header? Those are extra pages I have created. Just click on them and see.

You may already know all this. If you do, then why haven't you told me so I could stay up all night playing with it?

Here are the steps to make your extra pages.
     Go to the posting page of you your blog (like you are going to do a new post).
     Instead of clicking on new post, click on "Edit Pages".
     Then, choose " new page".
     Follows the steps and you are done.
     You can edit, delete, etc. the new page just like you edit your posts.
    
You can add up to 10 stand-alone pages such as an "About Me" page. Learn more
Have fun!

Crafty Update for You

This is the latest YOE crafts for the past 2 months. Last months craft challenge was songbirds.
These are the birds I made to send. It's the spool pattern, but I added silk flower petals for their tail feathers. Remember, these are Christmas ornaments we are making year round.

And, these are the birds I received in return. Cute little birds perched on their swing. They are also made from the spool pattern, and she put glass beads on the end of their tails.

This month is mermaids. .The mermaid I sent was made with sparkly pompoms threaded on a wire and a paper cutout of a mermaid (front and back) that is laminated with the wire placed between the two cutouts.

and I made an extra ornie for her - a pink flying pig (which she collects). This little piggy has a few rose buds, a little embroidery, some shiny glass beads, and soft fluffy wings.You can't see his tail, but there is a cute curly tail there.
I'm waiting for my mermaid to arrive and then I'll see what's up next for June's ornie.
