I had heard more than once that someone hasn't called a loved one because they don't want to bother them. Let me tell you STOP reading my blog and pick up the phone. None of us are promised tomorrow. You might not get a chance to make the call later. I am sure the person you are thinking of calling would love to hear from you. Remember others aren't calling either and now is the time your loved one could use the support.

I finished the album for the girls school Crab Feed and Auction. I had probably 80% of the stuff in my stash! I put together a scrapbooking basket for the raffle at the Manteca Quilt Show. I had everything but the storage container. I made some more cards. AND I machine quilted a UFO! This one has been in the works for a year! I am hoping to trim it up tomorrow night and bind it this week. I also whipped up a batch of Red Velvet cupcakes, from scratch.
This is last weeks batch of cards. My favorite is the fish card, he spins back and forth. I made 10 of them!
This is part of the quilt I worked on. I did a vine thingy is the white border and the pinwheel looking blocks I did a daisy looking flower.
Scott spent most of Sunday under the house. Yes UNDER the house. He is in about 66% of the way done insulating the floor. It is already making a difference. After he gets the insulation in he has to go back and put up netting so it doesn't fall down.

Of course me and mom had to stay close to the booth to see how the whole thing went down. It was so funny to watch. So since that one Sunday afternoon in March the Bargello quilt has always been referred to as a Bordello quilt for me and mom.

The payment break down is $2 for each of the following:
Each scrapbook layout (single or double)
Each piece of altered art
For every 2 cards
Each mini album
For every 2 sets of card candy
My Goal is to have paid myself enough to pay for one of our tickets to Maui at the end of the 3 months. I should be able to do it too. I am making a scrapbook for the crab feed auction, 12 doulble and 1 single layouts, total of $26. I am also making 30 baby shower favors, total $60. I have been working on invitations and prizes for my Stampin' Up party at the end of the month. I also have a few swaps I am in to help add to my totals.
As the challenge progresses I will keep my totals updated for you all, at the left. Also I will post my creations as I go. I am guessing that a ticket to Maui is going to be between $400 and $500. Wish me luck!

It seems like this is the time of year for everyone at work to take vacations. I was the first at the begining of the year and we have had one a week since. Another 2 weeks things will be back to normal for a little bit!
I have been making cards and altering all kinds of things for swaps, invitations and gifts. Here are a few:
Purse for Not So Secret Sister Valentine Purse Swap
This is my Altered Money container for the No Spend Pay Yourself $2 Challenge, more about that later.
These are a few of the cards I have been working on. The first is the invitation to my SU party, second was just because, third I made for my Monday Morning Mailer swap, myself and a set for a friend, and the last for a circle journal swap and made some extra for me.
I have also been working on the bordello quilt. I will have the borders on it next week, along with a picture. I have also been working on my Dazzling Diamonds quilt. This is my current UFO to complete project. I am hoping to get it to Gina at the first of March.
Scott and 9 friends went to the Cabella's Grand Opening in Reno 2 weeks ago. They had a great time, no one got thrown out of a casino on this trip. They all 10 got sicker than a dog the following week and are still whinning about being sick.
