Bells Will Be Ringing


Good golly Miss Molly, it's been over a month since I've posted!!! Hi my crafty friends, did you miss me? lol It's been crazy around here, lots of rain, lots of mowing and other chores. Drove 2 1/2 hours up to my son's college on May 5th, left a little after 8 am with Savannah in tow driving in pouring down rain. Got up there and then got to work. I had no idea how many clothes my son had or how many shoes! Let me just say he doesn't need any clothes!!!! And shoes, he is worse than a woman. He had 40 pairs of shoes!!! Yes, you read that right! The kid was shopping all year I guess cause he didn't leave with that many. lol So I packed all his clothing and a huge long tub and it couldn't hold all his clothing. I'm serious! Had to put the rest in his big duffel bag and that was stuffed. That wasn't including his dress button up shirts, they went in another tub with his suit! He and a friend took some stuff to storage, took a couple of trips. While they were doing that, I was cleaning upstairs-vacuuming, dusting blinds, sills and baseboards. It was bitter sweet cleaning his late roommate's room. I cried a little and talked to him a little. Next I did Bret's room.Then got started down stairs. Cleaned in the kitchen-the stove, fridge, washer, dryer, cabinets, etc. Then washed up the floor. Bret came back and cleaned the bathroom and washed that floor. All was left to clean was the living room. So while he loaded stuff up in my car and his truck, I dusted blinds, sills and baseboards and then vacuumed. 8:30 pm we were out of there and boy were we tired!!! Another 2 1/2 hour drive home, no rain on the way home thankfully and we finally got home. We just brought the cold and frozen food in and threw in the basement fridge and freezer and hit the bed! Savannah did really well, that was her longest trip away, so I was happy that she did so well. Not in any routine yet, as so much as been going on here. Had to buy a new mower. Bret and my step father got it yesterday early evening, so Bret mowed til dark on a high setting-and it was a hay field too!!! Then he turned around and mowed again tonight. I did a little bit. I have to learn this new mower as it is a zero turn mower. It's gonna take me a while, but I did ok, not great, but not bad either. Of course my son was laughing at me. lol

Ok enough chatter, I do have a card. Last month, I wanted to play along with Rudolph Day, but my editing program-a free one-wasn't working. New computer remember. lol So I couldn't edit my photos. So had Bret look at it finally and all I had to do was sign in. Duh to me!!! Now it is completely different and I don't know how to add my watermark. Sigh Anyway, I did make my cards but didn't post. But I did do them! Not much card making going on right now as I am working on a recipe mini album for a gift. So here is my card and sorry I don't have the names of the supplies I used with me at this time to do the recipe. Just ask if you want to know anything and I will let you know what I used. I made three of these, need more practice with the bells, so might make more of them. Need some different grey's too so need to work on that as well. The stamp company was Sunny Skies or something to that effect. 

And that's it. All I have for now. Not much, but still have so much outside work to do now that Bret is home. Poor kid hasn't even unpacked yet, so he will be doing that the rest of this week in the evening after work. I also have a ton of curtains to hem for my other son and DIL for their house. So got to get on that as well! Not sure how I got so busy so fast! lol 

As always your comments bring sunshine to my day and I appreciate you all so very much! Thanks for stopping by and visiting a spell with me. The rain has stopped and this week has been beautiful. I don't want to go for 6 weekends in a row of rain! Will need to get the pool open soon, to bad it wasn't already open as the rain could have raised the level for me. lol Until next time.....


Crafty hugs,
