I guess they call them books or folios or something like that ::giggle::

ShareTweet I’m still addicted to YT and I’ve been trying to learn how to make these folio book things. I’ve gone over a tutorial about three times now. I’m trying to commit as much as I can to memory because of all the tut’s I’ve seen, this one is the most detailed, uses no glue in the binding and just is my favorite, so far. Three parts I’ll put below: Now, just for fun, I thought I’d include a peek at some of the finished foto folios that I wish I was talented enough to create or had a gold mine of money to buy kits. These are my favorite yummies so far, as well: Here is a convertible album in a box: I”M IN LOVE WITH THIS PAPER: Thanks for spending … Read entire article »

Online Love – Etsy – Charming Maggie

ShareTweet I just received an order from Deborabh,, or Charming Maggie.  I ordered a couple eternity charms, baseball related harms, cat charms, and Kokopeli, which are hard to find. I can’t tell you how over-pleased I am with the order and the service. There were special additional charms that I needed to know were there.  There were better charms than some I ordered, which only helps my business. I can’t tell you enough how pleased I am with Charming Maggie. Go visit and let them take care of you, too. Heidi SandDollarKisses **I put in a second order of charms for the store.  I purchased “believe” (which you know is my word,) sand dollars, and star fish.  I put in a word that I had my eye on the heart in heart charms, for my next order.  … Read entire article »

Now this graphic explains exactly what I’m going through with the dessicated disc and arthritis on the side: … Read entire article »

Soapbox in the name of Obamacare and Free Enterprise

ShareTweet It takes something extraordinary, these days, to get me to hurt myself, physically, to open this lappie.. but here she blogs… Okay.  At first, I didn’t know what to say (great opening for a debate, eh?)  No, this is not a debate.  These are some facts, that are personal, and not up for debate. I consider Home Delivered Pizza a privilege and convenience food.  I could care less if the pie went up a dollar each. BUT.. This is just the beginning of getting our heads out of the sand.  I have kept my politics out of blog all year, which means I’ve been stewing to spew forth.. Obamacare is the beginning of something so ugly that I’ve not been wanting to talk about it. I’m depressed.  You should be, too. Before Obamacare, I had to stop … Read entire article »

ShareTweet These are Stephanie’s Fabulous Pumpkin Muffins. Girlie has dubbed them “Never Go Back Pumpkin Muffins” meaning to commercialized versions. I’m a sucker for mounding muffin tops.. and these muffins are worth their weight. Absolutely delightful! The only thing I changed was 1/4 tsp nutmeg for the pumpkin pie spice. The camera couldn’t capture what the eye see’s, with marbled orange and beige.. truly an eating experience. This pumpkin muffin recipe is a true keeper. Thanks Stephanie. … Read entire article »

Brain Overload

ShareTweet I can’t imagine why my brain is on overload. I have one camp and two conferences swimming up in there, that need to be blogged about. I’m a full-time student. I’ve met some fantastic people, in the last few weeks. Have you ever been in a meeting and felt you knew a total stranger, before?  I was in a panel discussion sesssion, at #convergesouth, in greensboro and I just felt I knew this guy on the panel.  I don’t know why I felt I knew him.  He mentioned Silicon Valley.  Okay, a Cali guy.  He mentioned he worked at Yahoo. OH MY GAWD.  When the panel ended, I cautiously asked, as I reached out my hand, “Ernie? Y360 Ernie?” What an amazing experience.  My first blogging gigs were at Yahoo 360, until Yahoo “threw us under … Read entire article »
