Card Class - "Cricut Card" I've had my cricut for awhile not and have not taken the time to make cards using one of my cartridges, so now we have it. They really are simple but you can add so much to the cards to dress them up. I have cut out four different designs for you to choose from and then added stamping to dress them up. Although it is calling for some snow early this week we will still be in the fall theme with our class. Card class times are as follows: Monday's at 10:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. All are welcome to join us in any one of those time slots, the same class will be taught all day. Hope you can make it.
I am still hoping for a couple more nice warmer days to do a little more yard work. I have another flower bed that I would like to get trimmed around. I also like to cover all the beds with horse manure before winter and that's not done. Next week end is not suppose to be to bad so hopefully it will be warm enough to be comfortable for me to work outside.
I have mulched all the leaves and the ones that have fallen since then were all blown away today, so that's good. The goats think the leaves are a great snack, I tease and say they think they are potato chips. You know the old saying..."you can't eat just one." Well that's how they are with those dried up leaves.
There wasn't very many chestnuts from my tree this year, but I did collect the ones I had. Well at least the ones I got to before the squirrels did. I have this beautiful black squirrel that plays around in my yard, and he is very busy putting away those nuts for the winter. There is also a couple hickory nuts and he gets plenty from those trees. Oliver would just love to chase that squirrel but its to dangerous to let him run. He just would be so involved in chasing the squirrel he would never listen to me to come back, and the squirrel could run out into the road. Not a good thing.
I am really going to get busy making my Christmas cards. I have had the stamps that I want to use for them since last spring and haven't started. I need to get them done, so I can not be rushed at the last minute. I usually make around 100 cards, but this year I won't have as many to do. So I will probably start with 50 and see from there how many more I will need to do. Do you have yours done yet???
Have a great evening.

Oh my gosh do you even remember who I am. I have been a very neglectful girl and I am so sorry. Have had a lot of things going on and just haven't been able to concentrate on one thing. I'm back and hopefully will be able to keep up now for awhile.
In class this week we will be working with the Making Memories Grommet Setter...which by the way is very easy and adds a wonderful embellishment to your cards and scrapbook pages. I have a stash of handmade background papers that you can choose from for your background, then you can add an image or a message, a little layering, attach your grommet and wala you are done.
My Class Schedule has changed: All classes are now on Monday's at 10:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. Please take note and I would love to see you for class.
My very favorite time of the year is here and boy have we had some beautiful days lately. I love to see the leaves and I do believe in my area they are probably in their prime now. Take some time and go for a drive and drink in all the beauty that God has given for our pleasure.
Max has certainly been giving me an experience I will never forget. Oliver and Karli were both such good puppies and then along came Max. I don't believe I have ever had a dog that chewed as much as this little guy does. I even came to the point I decided three dogs was just to many and I needed to find a home for Max. Well... I even went so far as to ask a friend if she might be interested. It wasn't a good time for her to take on a new puppy and actually before she even got back to me with her answer I had come to my senses and realized I really couldn't part with him anyhow. He has been getting a little better and he also is coming to know his crate rather well. I don't like leaving him in it for very long but I also don't like to come home and find my house trashed and things smashed. I do have to laugh though.....he has found more ways to get into trouble than I think any of my kids ever did. Oh the life of a puppy. Its as interesting as a 2 year old.
Have a good evening........
