    Just call me slacker!

    Okay, so I'm a slacker as far as blogging goes. I'll admit it. However I've made good progress for the VBS and did some sewing this week. I'm not done with the craft prep for VBS but the church isn't open tomorrow so I'll have to stay home and blog/scrap instead- LOL! I can go back next week on Monday to finish up for the rest of the week too, so I'm not worried about crafts. I've been sewing like mad yesterday and today, probably tomorrow too. I've caught up on Emma sewing and made 4 dresses and now I'm working on making animals for decorations for VBS. I made a stuffed frog, but Emma claimed him for her own so I'll have to make another later. I'm also going to make a couple of Macaws and try to adapt the pattern to make a toucan. (I'm thinking leave the body the same but change the beak and with the black fabric instead of the red it'll be close enough.) Emma has already claimed one of the birds as hers. I have a monkey pattern too, but it looks harder and I don't know if I'll have time before Sunday to get it done. Plus it's a regular jungle monkey pattern and for VBS we're a howler monkey, so oh well.

    You'll all be delighted to know I got an A in the class that just ended. But starting Sunday I get Math and Computer applications- not my favorite subjects.

    Just wanted to pop on and let you all know where I've been. If you're nice I'll take some photos of our VBS rain forest decorations once they're up for you all to see. (You should see my very cool mushrooms!)

    Happy Scrapping!

    Congratulations on the "A" in your latest course and good luck with the next ones!!
    You sound like one busy lady - I love to sew too - used to sew lots when my daughters were young. Now, I'm into digital stuff - like scrapping and I just can't believe how entertaining it is!!
    I like to visit your blog and look over your freebie list - might be something there I need!
    Looking forward to the photos of the rain forest.

You go girl!!:) I disliked Math cause it disliked me when I was in school and I don't know if they had computers way back then or not.LOL You can look at my blog and see I don't know a lot about computer applications either.hehe I have no idea how to put a blinkie on my blog..and I have been given instructions by several people.I will just tell everyone to come see mine on your blog.LOL
    Can I send my sewing to you too?;)I took sewing in Junior High and it didn't like me either.hehe Can't wait to see all that work you have done.:) Oh if it were only possible to tap into some of your energy.!!! It would probably send my blood pressure sky high.LORL

    Amers is a slacker! Amers is a slacker.

    OK, I hope you are happy now.

    Mom and I recovered enough from working the election precinct for 15 hours on Tuesday that we went over to Senior Center and played Duplicate Bridge Wednesday afternoon before I drove her to the final NCS meeting of the year. Boy, could we see a difference in the traffic caused by the slowing economy and $4+ gasoline. We drove right through the I-680 / Hwy 24 corridor without any slow downs at all.

    We are going over to Lodi tomorrow to work at a swim meet. If I get your mother moving soon enough, we will stop by in Fairfield and pick up another couple of copies of your birth certificate. LOL Getting your mother moving quickly, like that is going to happen.

    Give Emma our love and a couple hugs to everyone.

    Amy well done on your A, I hope you treat yourself to something for that. Don't be too worried about Math and Computer, you can do anything, just don't talk yourself into making it harder. Would love to see piccies of all the stuff you have sewn, when you have the time LOL.
    Best wishes,

    YOU SEW???? How can you call yourself a slacker??? (I can sew or I can scrap or I can do nothing -- but I can't do both in the same week/month!) Do you have a sewing blog??? Enquiring minds need to know!!!
