Celebrate 2015 With a Free Printable!

Barely finished with Christmas, and I'm already planning New Years! I hope everyone had a memorable Christmas. Did Santa bring you everything that you wished for?

I have two new printables for you today. I'm changing my hosting to so I hope everyone has a smooth download. These will print at 8x10 as is, but of course if you need a 5x7 you will be good. I hope you enjoy the first printables for 2015!

Christmas Tree 2014

Well, finally it's done. It's actually been done for two weeks, but I keep switching around where the ornaments are. My family thinks I've lost it.

After a crisis small problem with some broken glass icicles, I had to purchase more. They are not cheap either. I shall be more careful. I did also purchase a dozen or so new ornaments this year too. I like those that represent "us". Some new deer, hearts, noels, and snowmen were hung with care. And yes, the tree is by the chimney *s* Here are some close-ups of some of my ornaments.

A Little Christmas, A Little Winter

This is usually just my winter table, but I've had these cute little balls for a while and couldn't resist. I did find some mini icicles to hang off this tree too! I was indescribably happy when I found that deer canvas. The same place that sells the icicles, is a greenhouse that converts to a Christmas store every year. It's full of inspiration and I love to just wander aimlessly looking at all of their trees and decorations. I felt funny taking pictures in there when I was in, so I only took a few. Maybe I should go back, say heck with it, and bring the big camera lol.

Red, Gold, and Lots of Glitter

Sounds like a great mix if you ask me! I used the red candle holders that I picked up last year at Michaels. The gold deer are from years back at Target. The new gold glitter votives this year I picked up at Michaels also. The wreath is a Balsam Hill prelit that matches the tree. I added some picks and a gold bow. Looking at this wreath makes me all warm and fuzzy. I wanted to leave it up all year because it makes me that happy, but there was an outstanding "NO!" from the peanut gallery.

I've had these gold deer forever now. I did pick up a new tree and that gorgeous lantern at Michaels this year. I love 60% off!!

I have been looking around at all the house tours this year, and I must say...breathtaking! The blog world is so chock full of creativity and you should all be proud of yourselves!

A Scrappy Kinda' Post

I hope everyone that's into the scrappy world got to enjoy iNSD. I say every year I'm going to save up and really shop, but I never do. So I was a good girl and only partook (that's a word right?) in one sale. Then as I was downloading from said sale, I realized that I had already purchased one of the kits. Now you know I must have liked it. A lesson learned as they say. Look before you buy. Since I haven't bothered to clean the house today, I scrapped instead. And Facebooked. And read some email. Oh, I guess technically I cleaned. I sorted through all of the weeks email!

I think it turned out really cute! I used "Memories Captured" by Word Art World. I'm a sucker for the colour scheme. Thanks for taking a peek!

Lost in Space

Yep, lost in space. What you may ask? My emails. I get literally a ton of blog updates in my email every day. Then one day...they stopped. Now because I'm a technical type of person, I have spent the last month (didn't say I was timely) checking settings, changing passwords (in case I got hacked), checking some of the blogs that I know I hadn't received updates from. Nobody has mentioned it. Then one of the blogs I read came through today. Apparently Feedburner stopped working in mid April. It's nice to know I'm not nuts. Sad, but not nuts.

Happy Birthday to My Princess

Two years ago today we were in the middle of our home inspection praying for the best, when we got the call. The "I think I'm going to the hospital now" call. She couldn't wait for us to drive to North Carolina in time, but we saw her a couple of hours after she was born. What a perfect angel. She's growing up so quick! Mimi loves you very much and hopes you have a day as beautiful as you are ♥

Happy Birthday to Me!!

I was a good girl. I heard that snicker, hush! Hubby finally determined that it was costing me a fortune to keep my Mustang in perfect health, so I had to say goodbye and part ways with my Bumble Bee. He did decide this after I spent $600 on it last week to make it stop when it was supposed to. Apparently running stop signs and lights gets ya in trouble. Who knew? I must say this is a heck of an upgrade!!! She's a 2014 Volkswagen Touareg TDI R Line. I need to come up with a name once I get to know her a little bit better. If anyone wants a review let me know, I can do one. I haven't really spent much time learning all the new things that it has. My Mustang wasn't for luxury or technology, more for looks and speed. I do know that I'm very comfortable driving and it's soooooo roomy. I'm very thankful that my hubby was able to do this for me, thank you love of my life ♥

Happy First Day of Spring!!


I have this delusion of daffodils, green grass, sunshine, birds dreams were crushed when I walked outside this morning. My loving husband, who was still snuggled under the blankets by the way, reminded me that it's supposed to be in the 20s next week. Would bah humbug be appropriate?

For those that are having a sunshiney day, please send it my way...Otherwise, have a good day my peeps!!

I'm Normal Again...

Well, as normal as normal gets anyway. I'm back to my regularly scheduled life. I have brought with me a case of the sniffles. Which includes a bag with cough drops, cough syrup, tissues, and sanitizer. Never leave home without it lol. Oh, and my blankie. Yes, I take my blankie to work with me. Our building is a little on the chill side so we can keep all of our servers happy, so I keep my blankie over my legs. I'm excited though to be back to being off at 3:30! I couldn't keep up with the housework! The dust bunnies were in process of staging a revolt. No fears though, I haulted that production =) I admire all the the working families that can still keep a house clean!!!! Spring's around the corner my chickies woot woot!

My Last Day

Sadly, this is my last day of 4 a.m. I'll be going back to my regularly scheduled life for the rest of this week. THEN, I have another schedule change. I'll be taking a continuing education course at work for a week and a half. THEN, yet another schedule change, I'll be working 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. for a week. I'm sooooo confused...can't tell if I'll be coming, going, or staying. I'm such a scheduled type of person, I'm going to go crazy! Wish me luck friends...xoxo

I'm Not a Morning Person...Or So I Say

Tomorrow is the first day of the the next two weeks. Yes, I'm aware that is not how the saying goes lol. I finish work today at 4 p.m., and...start my day tomorrow bright and twelve hours! Someone made a small booboo in shift coverage, so I "volunteered" for a 4 a.m. to noon shift. What was I thinking?! I'll be crawling out of bed when some people are hearing last call. I'll be hearing last call for sanity =) I'm kind of excited about a change though. It's temporary so it's not going to kill me...I hope. So who wants to be my alarm clock? Lots of snuggles to you all...xoxo.

How Much Are You Worth?

Odd question huh?  Way back in the 1990's when I was still blogging on Homestead, I was worth $17.1 million.  I have found out now that I'm worth a lot less. WHAT?!?!?! I guess we depreciate as much as cars. Well now my day is shot - For Sale

Joys of Moving Blogs...

So I got this bright idea to move my blog to another account.  Some days I wonder what's wrong with me lol. Since I was just moving from one blogger account to another, that went pretty smooth.  Easy as pie.  Well, til I started adding more blog posts. Now when I publish new posts, the whole left column drops to the bottom of the page. I have deleted and readded posts more times than I care to count. Then I had the great realization:  social media, accounts, mailing lists, oh what have I done?!

Two days later, I think I have it.  But then, oh no, what if I can tweak this, hum...wonder what would happen and how it would look it I did this?  Still messed up left column?!?! When does the madness stop?!

So...I'm here now, unless I accidentally hit the wrong button.  I hope you enjoy the new look, and yes, I'm still tweaking it lol.

P.S I just realized, now I want to go through the old posts and update them lol.

Valentine's Mantle

I'm so happy I finally have my Valentine's mantle done. For me to have something done early is like a major miracle lol. I only did the mantle this year, and still have my winter theme buffet table still done. Some of the candles were from Michael's 70% off Christmas sale this year. Everything else has been picked up over the last century or two. I took advantage of the one sunny day we've had here to get these pictures taken *s*
