    I'm back!

    Hi there everyone! I finished Harry potter # 7 and it was awesome! I won't go into details because that's just mean but I am surprised how much I completely loved this book. I mean the whole series was great but the last one didn't thrill me so much. (I've decided to blame that on the fact that she wrote it while PG.) But this one was a page turner until the very end! Fabulous!

    I hope you all grabbed my Wizardry kit and then took lots of photos either of the book parties or of loved ones curled up in corners reading. My dadoo was at a swim meet this weekend and said that kids were everywhere reading in between events. And my big bro said at Amtguard Saturday whenever someone died they'd go to the sidelines and read while waiting for the next game to start. I love hearing these stories of when and where people are seen reading these books!

    I just put a pork roast into the oven for dinner. I've never done a pork roast before so I'll let you know how the family like it tomorrow, but it smells divine.

    It's been brought to my attention that I do overkill sometimes. I mean like Wizardry for example. It was supposed to be a mini kit and turned out fairly large. I do that all the time. Oh well it's just me.

    Oh the ASDR is going great. Cindy and I made a collab Lo for challenge #2, it's on the Super Scraps blog if you want to go take a peek. I think it turned out really great! And now we're onto challenge # 3 which is royalty LO or something. ( I need to go read it again.) But I figure that'll be easy with her royal highness around.

    And thanks to everyone who stopped by bingo on Friday, it was fun! Did you miss out on buying my stocking this weekend? Well here's what was in it: Jumpstarts 2008 calendar collection!
    It's got a 8.5x11 inch template for each month and has another template with the actual dates/grid portion for all 12 months of 2008. It comes in PSD, JPEG and individual PNG formats at 300 dpi. I figure it's a great way to get a Jumpstart on the new year and/or your Christmas shopping. (I made them 8.5x11 format in order to make it easier for everyone to print them out for use.)
    You can get it now in my shop!

    Glad you finished. And yes, my son took a photo of me at the ballgame reading HP7. Need to get it off hubby's computer. :-) I was okay with HP6, but really disliked HP5 - which we nicknamed "Harry Potter Whiny." :-) Thanks for your list!

    Hi Amers - What I didn't mention before about the HP book stuff was that the local TV station in Fresno had a number of live feeds from the big bookstores in the area. Lots of people were dressed up in costumes including a number of small people who should have been in bed (as should all of the swimmers who had partially read copies at the swim meet at 7 AM.)

    We are glad that you have returned to our world. Did Emma miss you while you were gone?

    Lots of Love to you and the family. Dadoo

    Just give a quick thought to the poorest French girl that will have to wait for the translation before she can read the last Harry Potter...
    BTW, great calendar templates :)
    Hugs, Sabine
