Elkette's Bazaar today.

I set up at the Sweet Home Elkette's Bazaar today.  Not much traffic came thru.  Sold 1 bookmark and 2 cards.  And got an order for 2 tupperware items.  Girlfriend sold 1 item, one of her post-it note holders.  I hope to get some artwork pics on here tomorrow.

I joined Blogtoberfest sponsered by Tresa Black

I am going to get back into posting on my blog, wither it is about scrapbooking or just life.  Tresa is the sponser for blogtoberfest.  She is such an inspiration to me, a sister Close to My Heart consultant. 

So the hubby and I have been busy with our house.  Doing things that needed done, even if we were not going to put it "on the market".  The realtor we are using is wanting a professional photographer to come in, soon.  So I am going through the daylight basement, almost 1400 sq ft.  Working on one room,  whick is my "crap" room, I use it as a storage room really.  All my fabric, quilting, decorations and more stuff is in there. 
We already took a truck load of items to different charity groups.  I also gave approx 150 yards of fabric to 3 different groups.  Still have 10x more fabric than what I gave away.  LOL.  Then my scrapbooking room, not even going there!  Just going to organize it, for now.  I was going thru the basement as if moving, getting ready for that next step in our lives. 
And I have to paint the whole basement floor.

We decided that our next house doesn't need to be so big.  No children at home.  So smaller would be better for us.  Less space for me to fill.  LOL, again.

Well,  I will get art on here again.  I have been doing projects, just not getting photos downloaded.  I have a new camera.  It did not come with any cables.  Weird.  I bought it brand new from a camera shop, a Nikon D3100.  Just have to get a cable, soon.

That's all for now.

Next scrapbook day, Sunday Sept 25th, Noon-5pm

Hi all,
I have been busy.  Getting ready for the Women's Expo.  It was cancelled, just 2 weeks before it was to happen.  Bummer!.  Now I am working on our house.  Doing some upkeep prior to listing it on the market.

Now to the SCRAPBOOK day.  It will be Sunday, the 25th of Sept. from noon-5pm.  You can work on your own projects or on one that I am doing.

Info on my project is:
Using patterns out of the Reflections How-to Book.  It is a 2pg layout.  Everyone that decides to do this will have the same pattern, but different papers and accents.  They bring their own paper and accents.

Here is what you need to bring;
Photo sizes:  6x4 (3)
                     4x6 (2)
                     4x4 (1)
                     3 1/2 x5 (1, or this can be your journal area)
Paper sizes:
2 base pages ( they will have parts that are visable when done with layouts)
paper (a); 6x12, 5x7 (x2)
paper (b); 2x12, 1 1/2x 1 1/2

And what every accents you want to go with paper and pics.

Pics of Road Trip on Sunday, March 6, 2011

My brother's boss, Dave, and his wife, Beth, came from Indiana for his funeral service here in Oregon.  My husband and I took them on a small road trip, since they had a day to spare before they flew back to Indiana.  They had never been to Oregon before and Cary talked about it a lot.  I am going to attach a few pics of where we took them.

This is on Hwy 20, west of Sisters, Oregon
Here is a video, not a very clear one though, of The Head of the Metolius River

We also took them to Sahlie Falls, on the Mackenzie Hwy.

I am Back

Hi All,
Sorry I have been absent.  I had a family emergency.  My brother, Cary, age 37, died unexpectedly, complications of pnuemonia.   I flew to Indiana from Oregon to be with his wife and 2 step-children. He also had his 3 children and 1 step-child here in Oregon.  We then flew back to Oregon.   I will find a balance and get more artwork posted on here soon.  Bear with me.
