  2. 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?

      I have been amazed at how many layouts people have been posting in a day. I can maybe manage  2 a day. Some might get done quickly but since I lost a lot of my purchases it is taking me ages to look through my new buys & decide what to use on a page as I’m not familiar with them & go searching for things I no longer have. 😢🤔

  3. 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.

      OMG Andrea! You are so lucky there was no more severe damage. Take care of yourself.

  4. Andres has survived having her one kidney removed today.  She is in a lot of pain, mad and the nurse for delaying g her sleeping tablets and pain meds, otherwise she is in good spirits and sends love to y’all. This is her sister Melody.

  5. Auckland was declared a state of emergency last night due to so much rain and terrible flooding in 24hrs all over the city. So many homes flooded. We live 1 1/2hrs north and the rain was horrendous. The ground was already soggy from ex cyclone Hale we had at the beginning of January.

      Stay safe Jane. The weather has been ridiculous this summer. Down the east coast we have had heatwaves, flooding & even snow down south.

  10. 🥲😭 My little Addison is in the ER, suspected appendicitis. She’s on a gurney with a drip, in the hallway! The hospital is full, RSV, Flu and also Covid rising there. Poor little mite. And Nana can’t be there…

  11. My new laptop is ready for pickup. Hopefully my version of PSE will work because it is the same operating system. I also got them to back up my files onto a new EHD. Getting excited now.

      I have been using my PSE12 on Windows 10 so got that put on my new laptop instead of 11 Pro.

  13. Hi there! I wanted to let the ladies know on Scrapbook girls the passing of Linda Robin. She was very active. She hated dead flowers, so let the flowers bloom in her honor.

  15. Now we are all settled in our new little home, Ken decided after all we have been through it was time for a little holiday. Tomorrow we head to a seaside town for four nights. I am looking forward to morning walks on the beach.

      Sounds like a good plan. Hope the weather treats you well & it’s not too cold. I see there is black ice in the Blue Mountains this morning.

  16. I am very happy! Today an EHD saved from our flooded home is working  as previously it would not work. It has some older digi products with lots of Scrap Girls items.  

  17. 6,770 miles so far, 500+ gallons of diesel fuel, 60 days, 14 states, 27 different campsites, up mountains, across plains, by lakes, at farms, breweries, visits with friends and more adventures to come. Our Grand Adventure is amazing.

  18. My husband is a very  happy man. Last week he went to the local museum which is a small village set out, to volunteer. In conversation about all the woodwork he used to do, they have allocated him a  workshop of his own to set up and use. He will make wooden items to sell in their Information centre store.  With our move to a retirement village I was concerned about what Ken  would do to fill in his days...

      That is good for Ken. A great way for him to display his talents & to make a bit of pocket money.

  21. We are in Arkansas now for a few days...I am loving this new trailer and our new adventure....but still miss boat life.  Good service has been spotty so it's been hard to keep up here.

      Stay safe. We were lucky to miss the flooding where we are. Our nephew had about a metre of water under his house but managed to get everything up high. Take care. This rain bomb is an unprecedented event.

  23. Sorry to have "dumped" in the gallery today. Getting things done before a week or so of husband having numerous doctor appointments and procedures lined up to see about how to proceed after a concussion that has left him in considerable pain when he moves his head and a numb arm. Hope to be back before long.

  25. So I’m still trying to get over this pneumonia. I see the PA for follow up tomorrow, and just found out my doctor retired! Waaah! He was such a good doctor, he’d personally call me up with any lab, X-ray etc results. Not sure I’ll find another one like him,  can’t smell anything, so I’m sure I have Covid again,…or it’s just my smell gone after Covid never to return, I am so tired.I’m sure I’m missing some layouts that I said I’d do, so sorry if that’s true.

      I hope you feel better soon Andrea. We had been going to the same doctor for 47 years & changed because they got a bit “Ho-hum”. We had been with the new ones for 2 years & now they have both left the practice. So we are yet again on the lookout.
