Hi everyone.

Just read through the posts. You guys have been busy.

Came home early Saturday morning from camping to help my DD get ready for a 1st birthday party for her son. DH and Natalie stayed a little longer. Got home and started putting some stuff away and get a phone call, asking if I had the trailer keys. Yup, I had them, so had to drive back up there and back. Almost two hours out of my day that I didn't need to loose. Then get a call from the realtor that someone is coming through between 1 and 2 p.m. which worked out. We got the food in the crockpots and tidied up. Then get a call that someone else is coming between 2 and 3. It would have been ok, but they didn't show. Waited till 3:30 and told our realtor who said she would talk to them. Never heard anything. I hadn't taken a shower yet and we had lots of prep work to do to get stuff ready for the party and take to the park. Needless to say it was frantic and we were a little late.

Need to clear out my craft room and my sewing room, so that they look more like bedrooms. So I guess I will be done with crafting and sewing until we get moved into our new house. Makes me sad. Don't know what I am going to do. I guess I will get a lot of reading done.

Better go and get some things done. DH is going to Boy Scout camp starting tomorrow for the rest of the week and he gave me a list of things he needs me to do. Also have someone coming through the house later so need to wipe up tiny fingerprints from grandkids being here yesterday. Also have lots of laundry to do.

Shelly.. glad you got a chance to get away and relax.

You sure have lots to do. Hopefully the house will sell quicklyBigGrin

I hope you enjoyed your grandsons Birthday party

Your new home does that need to be built or is it already completed??

Busy day Ms. Abigail didn't nap but played all day by herself which was nice gave me a chance to do some things around the house.

Hoping everyone has a good evening/day

Wow! is it hot here and it's supposed to get hotter as the week goes on, into the 30C.

Shelly: glad you got back from your camping ok. Hope the birthday party went well and that your house sells quickly. Maybe you'll be able to get back to some crafting then

Nancy: sounds like you did a great job babysitting/raising Hannah & Alex. Nice that you did albums for them.

Have to take mom for therapy tomorrow & Thurs. Troy is off to camp Wed., so he'll be coming home with us after bocce tomorrow evening and I'll take him out Wed. morning. His camp is about 45 min. away. I'm adding pics of great neice's birthday card and her sandpail decorated with vinyl. The pop-up card was made with the Explore too, so much easier than cutting it all by hand. The balloons and the #3 are cut from glitter foam with the Sizzix.

Hi all. Got home from camping late last night. Brought in my purse and computer tooka bath, and crashed. We did all of our unloading this morning. We had planned on coming home this morning but DH decided he would rather leave last night and be able to unload before it got too hot. Although he is at my parents now unloading their RV. Brandon's nephew went to help.

My parents plan on selling their 5th wheel and truck they pull it with. It has always been too big for them. BUT, he wants to buy a smaller one to pull with their smaller pickup. HOWEVER, I really don't think that they will be able to camp by next summer. They have declined a lot this past year, and I am sure another year will bring more decline. I hope it takes his current one a LONG time to sell. But knowing my dad, he will get in a big toot and get something else that really would not fit their needs even if they do go camping again, and he will pay too much. He is not realistic at all.

And my sad news. Nick went to doggie heaven, if there is a doggie heaven, yesterday. It was a really hard decision, but the time was right. I was not there (I couldn't handle it) but Merle was. He said Nick wagged until the very end. He had half a bag of marshmallows! I am tearing up even as I type this. He was such a good dog, and a special member of our family. We will miss him deeply.

Shelly... that had to be aggravating going back and forth to bring the keys back.

Sandra.. the pail came out cute and love your card so cute.

Oh Joy... I am so sorry to hear about Nick and I am sure there is a doggie heaven.Sending ~~HUGS~~
your way. I'm tearing up myself.

Busy day took Abigail out did some shopping Hannah came along then they played this afternoon.

I think Abby is growing out of her naps but one good thing she plays by herself I can see she is tired but she won't go down in the crib. She is quiet and plays so I really can't compalin.

Awhile back with my Imagine machine I cut Abigail's name with the cart "Blast Off" and today she pulls the letters out of her purse and says "L I said yes that is a L, then I I said your right she told me all the letters.

Well hoping everyone has a good evening/day

I had a nice little surprise when I got my Anna Griffin cartridge from HSN for 24.99
it had a 10.00 gift certificate for Design Space. That was a nice little perk

Also got my Convection Bread Machine. didn't realize how big it was DH said just make room on the counter which was perfect only had a small toaster that we hardly use and the bread machine fit perfectly. Plenty of room. I couldn't imagine bringing it up and down from the basement. That is what DH got me for my BirthdayBigGrin

I ordered all the King Arthur Bread mixes and flour and there was a delay with Fed X.

so hoping to get it tomorrow and I can start baking my Gluten Free bread. Now I can't even tolerate dairy..Angry

Hi Tasha. I am Joy. I don't know about specific chats, but just keep looking around the messageboards for great ideas! There are lots of very creative people here.

In the cards area and scrapbook area and general crafts thread, there are some GREAT ideas. I don't think of things to good on my own, but I am good at scraplifting!

Joy - So sorry about Nick! It is hard to lose a pet! I know you will miss him. Hoping it gets easier. Maybe if your dad's trailer doesn't sell till late in the fall, you can talk him out of getting another one until spring and he will realize how much they will or won't use it. Hopefully, you could go with him to look at new ones to help him not get more than he needs or pay more than he should. Why do our parents have to be so stubborn?

Nancy - Hope you get your bread mixes soon. That will be nice for you to make your own. My DD keeps saying she is going to do it, but she hasn't. That GF bread is so expensive! I hope the mixes help keep the price down. Sorry you are having trouble with dairy now too! My DD has just found out she has IBS with her celiac. You asked if we are building or if our house is already done. We will build, but are waiting to start until we sell hopefully. We have 60 days from when we signed to start, or the price will go up. So we are approved to go ahead at that time with a lender and I guess we will, but I sure hope it sells before then.

Tasha - Welcome to the group. I am with Joy, I don't know what specific chats you could look at. But look in the scrapbook areas and the cards sections and you will get lots of inspiration. I also don't come up with things on my own, but I can scraplift with the best of them, lol! There are lots of things on YouTube also that might help you.

We have had good traffic on our house this week. I know it hasn't been long, but I just wish it would sell so we can get moving. Not looking forward to moving twice, but I would feel better if I didn't have to worry about having two houses. I also don't want to have to drop the price just to get out of it. I don't mind if we don't get our asking price, but I don't want to get too little out of it.

Also, the sooner we can start building, the sooner it will be done so I can get back to crafting and sewing. Packing all that up is tough. I'm having a hard time with it, but I guess it must be done.
