In Topic: Art Journaling Chat & Challenge 9Pm Et Monday December 15Th

I'm sorry I missed this month's chat.  We had some family issues that required my attention.  I do like the the prompt; I'll let it marinate a bit in my brain and see what I can come up with.

This sounds like so much fun, and I'd really love to meet all of you.  But DH and I are going to Europe in very early May, and I don't think I want two trips, even if this one is short, so close together.  And I think I'd need to fly - or maybe take the train;  driving in New York, or any busy city where I don't know my way around,  terrifies me.   Fall sounds good . . .

I don't remember ever forgetting where I hid something;  I have several plastic tubs in my laundry/craft/wrapping area of the basement, and gifts go there as they accumulate.  By the time I set up this system both DDs were past the searching stage - as in not living here anymore.  I don't remember what I did in earlier years.  I'm pretty old, too, Joyce.  BUT - just yesterday I bought a gift card for my son-in-law.  I KNOW I had it in my hand when I emptied the shopping bags.  I've searched every room in the house, including those bags and the waste baskets, as well as my puree and the car.  It's nowhere to be found.  I think I'll just buy another card.  The original is bound to show up sometime (March, maybe?), and we'll use it ourselves.  Growing old beats the alternative, but I really don't like the memory gaps that just spring up.  I can't find what's supposed to be in those holes!

Ditto - I create all pages, and save as a single jpg for uploading.  Haven't used Snapfish, but it works with other companies.

He looks so worried and earnest.  DH thinks he's recommending CPR.  

 

Reminds me of our first cat's escapade on her first Christmas.  We were in Okinawa, but I'd managed to find cranberries to string with popcorn for garlands on the tree.  Siri, about 3 months old, climbed the tree and got tangled in the gal ands and the wires for the lights.  She howled piteously until I rescued her, and left cranberry juice splats all over the presents.  She did NOT apologize, but escaped out the back door, climbed another - live - tree, and perched on the roof, still howling.  And after I found a ladder and climbed to rescue her again, she jumped onto my head, employing claws to keep her balance.  And the trio of Okinawan schoolboys waiting for a bus across the street watched, engrossed.  Did I mention I was still in my pajamas?
