    Freaky Friday

    It's almost Halloween! Do you have your candy ready? Is the house decorated? Do the Kids have pumpkins ready to carve? Are the finishing touches on costumes complete? If not you need to get crack-a-lacking! Only 5 days until spookfest!

    I'm still working on some fun stuff for you all and those challenge kits. Not too sure what I'll get done over the next 2 days as hubby is off and tomorrow we have moms club at the pumpkin farm/patch. We'll have to see.

    Okay here's your Friday freebie, it's another QP but this one is special because it's from one of my MMM kits Candy Corn. Since you can't get the kit any longer I figured I'd use it for today's freebie. I used one of the photos from Emma's Fall Festival for the preview- isn't she cute!
    download Candy Corn QP

    Manic Monday... again.

    Okay, I feel like I've been on the go since Friday morning. With Emma skipping naps, trying to get advertising out for the whole Madness stuff and my parts of various team kits done on time. Not to mention church yesterday and the family hay ride with cookout last night. Oh and I did mention that Emma is finally co-operating with the potty training? She's using to the potty at least 2 times a day to pee-pee sometimes more. She goes back and forth on the panties issue but has had few accidents so far. She even used someone else's potty at the cookout yesterday and we all know how big that step is (public potty time). Needless to say it's been an interesting weekend, it's been really crazy. So now let's take a moment to catch our breath.

    Let's look at some of the photos from yesterday:
    First is Emma in her "witchy" outfit.
    Emma and her boyfriend Kullan in the car on the way to the cookout.
    Kullan sharing the love, Emma rejecting him.
    Emma learning to play catch with out pastor and his dog.
    More catch and the cookout.
    A jam session with our musicians. They play every week for service too but the musical selection is different.
    The Hay Ride! We took the second one once it was dark out, not much to see but still fun!
    Emma on the hay ride, eating a hotdog.
    The week of Madness at DBD is over but the challenges are still going thru this Friday so you can still have some fall fun and get some freebies!

    Okay, let's go find us some freebies!
    Jenny has a cute food one for you on her blog.
    NBK has a cute little emblem on a ribbon for you.

    Busy bee...

    I'm sorry but I won't get to a list until Monday. Friday was hectic especially with no nap from Emma. Then yesterday she again didn't nap.

    Katie update

    Hi everyone! I have great news! Katie is coming home tomorrow. It turns out they did an emergency surgery a few days ago to relieve the pressure on her brain and since then she's had a rapid recovery. She still is lax on the left side but can walk and talk if she concentrates. She still has a long recovery ahead but is doing so much better. I want to thank you all for adding her to your prayers because I know He was listening! I'll catch you all tomorrow!

    P.S. I've been noticing that this week 4 share has started to let some, shall we say adult content ads run on their site. So I think I may be on the lookout for a new free file share site. If anyone has a recommendation please let me know. And if you see that stuff on 4share take the moment to tell them what you think about it by clicking feedback in the top right corner.

    Where am I?

    I really don't know. I've been running around all day either out on errands or trying to get things organized for next weeks Fall Fun! UGH. I had the dentist this morning, then I swung by the church to get some stuff, then the store to return stuff and off pick up Emma, then get on the puter to fix stuff and now finally to blog. Whew!

    I have a confession....

    No list today! Sorry but there it is. Hubby is off, we had a staff chat meeting to finalize next week's Madness events and hubby and I are going out on a date tonight so we've been trying to get our "weekend" chores done. (He's on rotating shift work so our weekend can be almost any day of the week- lol!)

    I do have a cute picture of Emma to share with you all.
    This was a few weeks ago. We took Emma and Kullan for ice cream. I know mine looks hugs but that waffle cone doesn't go much past a half inch into that cup. That face Emma is making is classic her. She's saying cheese and telling you to squeeze the button on the camera to take a photo.

    Sorry about the list but I'll come back tomorrow while Emma is in school, after my dentist's appt, and do one. Or during her nap if the dentist takes forever. Pop over to the wonderful Ikea Goddess for you freebie fix if needed!

    I can't wait for next week!!! Exciting things going on. My Bingo chat is now set for friday the 19th at 7 pm eastern. The bingo card template and word list will go up this weekend probably or next Monday at the latest. Wait until you see all the goodies we have for you all!

    I have no new news on Katie. She's still in the hospital but she seems to be doing ok. She does still have a long road to recovery and they're still assessing all the damage that was done by the stroke she had. Thanks again for everyone's prayers and who've checked up on me and/or her! You guys are the best!

    * I do know that Marcee has a cute set of flowers on her blog today!
    And Kim B. has some cluster tags.

    Happy scrapping y'all!
    C-ya tomorrow!

    Softness add-on

    Hey there everyone. I have a few announcements for you all today. First off is that I'm retiring the Amazing Technicolor Dream Collection. What does that mean? Well it'll be 65% off thru the end of October and then it'll disappear forever. So go grab the kits or the entire collection before they're gone in the retirement section at DBD!
    And tomorrow for one day only as part of the Super Saturday Sale my kit Amy's Birthday Bash will be 50% off all day!

    And now in the shop my newest kit Softness. It's soft and supple as a cloud, cool and pretty as a winter's sunrise. You'll find flowers, lace and less feminine elements for a variety of themes; the gentle colors could easily be used for anything!
    Softness is up now in my DBD shop!

    Thank you again for all the prayers for Katie, her family and myself. I'm doing better but still a bit freaked out about all of this. I wish I was home so I could go see her instead of having my best friend Emily keep calling me with updates. She's been a rock for everyone calling people and as a nurse helping them understand what's going on. I have no new news as the time difference makes my getting of updates hard. So thank you again.

    Happy Scrapping!
