      We love football around here, but more college than pro. However, we are rooting for the Chiefs today!

      Update #2: Our official snowfall this week was 25.5" and it was -17F this morning when I woke up. With the wind chill it felt like -41F. Did I once upon a time say I liked living here because the seasons change?

  8. 2 Days ago I had a horrific incident with my little dog Luna she is 9 lbs she was poisoned by a tode and it was horrific to see she having seizures and drive with her screaming  and jerking. She spent 2 days in the hospital and its coming home with still care to do she got pneumonia because of it. :( I'm so thankful she is alive.

  10. I'm curious. How much time do you spend on a layout? On average. I think mine average 15-20 minutes max. And they show it LOL As my only "art" its either easy and I know what I want or its hard and I leave it simple. But I feel like maybe I'm not taking enough time to really create art (not looking for compliments, just thinking outloud). My layouts fit me. But I see the craft and art you all create and I wonder, how much time do you spend per layout?

    1. Celestine

      Celestine

      Most of my layouts come together somewhere between 50 and 90 minutes. I tend to do LOs that include a lot, especially for the CT where I want to highlight kit contents. I am also a perfectionist about placement, shifting things in a miniscule way that no one would ever notice. (I need to get over that, LOL!). If I go past 1.5 hours, then I know the creative juices aren't flowing and I will usually set it aside and come back to it the next day. When I come back the next day, all the overthinking clutter in my head is gone and I can usually whip together the LO in under 30 minutes. Like Amy said, there are no rules to the creative process. Do what works for you!

  11. I just managed to upload 1 layout when my laptop conked, again...

    Last time I lost a lot of stash. I was able to get it back from Angie. I was going to do backups today, but of course, I didn't. 🤔

  20. I am so happy, had to share the news. Got this message a few minutes ago: "Your art piece, I'm Rare, matched all contest rules and guidelines and has moved forward to judging." So Awesome!! Incidentally, this is the same piece that made it into New Hampshire's Institute of Disabilities 2024 calendar!

  22. Well the Dr says I’m a tough old broad. A car rolled over my leg tonight. I was helping a neighbor move her car, we were pushing, suddenly it started moving, I tried to jump in and pull the handbrake, and I fell over, and it rolled right over me. I went to the ER, bruised, scraped, but miraculously no broken bones! I’m in a lot of pain, but ok. I’m just lucky it never rolled over my hips or torso. Just have a follow up and things to watch out for. But I didn’t die. Lol.

      Oh my gosh, Andrea. You are incredibly lucky and definitely one tough lady! I hope you don't feel too many after effects from this adventure! Ouch, ouch, ouch!
