Show Me Thursday #50

Can you believe it's almost been a year since Sassy Cheryl started the Show Me Challenge over on her Sassy Cheryls Blog? All you have to do is post a pic or as many as you want sowing what you have going on in your life, and you're entered in a random drawing to win a free Sassy Cheryl image. Now if you don't know, Sassy Cheryl has been on a roll creating tons of new images, so winning a free one would be a very good thing.

All of a sudden we have folks cooking and my mouth has been watering looking at all the foods that are being prepared. Over the weekend, my niece and great nephew came down with her DH for the night. While her DH was hunting, she and Coleman came down to see me. He's 14 months old and could walk if he wanted to, but is totally not interested in walking.

Sometime between Thursday night and Saturday afternoon, I lost the flash card for my camera. As a result on Sunday afternoon, after cleaning my Copics I cleaned and reorganized my half of the table. If you're not sitting down, you might better. You're not going to believe these two pics. I even want you to know that this afternoon, after making a card I left it looking just like it does in these pics.

This morning I went to town and stopped at Wall's(a closeout store) where I found these ornament boxes for $.99 each. These will be stuffed with a little cash and given to the great nieces and nephews.

Rozanne Paxman, the CEO of Scrap Girls, has a blog called How Mom Did It. It's dedicated to sharing the things she learned from her Mother and her Grandmother. She also shared a tip on how to make your own laundry detergent. This is what I mixed up this afternoon.

Finally, last week I showed you pics of the turning leaves. Well, this is a picture that shows some of the leaves that have fallen in my front yard. The trees still have at least this many still on them. You'll have to wait to see pics of my DH's creative way of raking them, because we don't rake until they all fall off the trees.

    Coleman is precious. What a cutie-patootie! Blue eyes?
    Yep, it's hard to believe that it's been almost a year. Have to do something special for that one.

    I'm so proud of you for keeping your work space clean. I've taught you well and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE those ornament boxes. Too stinkin' cute.

  5. My crafting room is in desperate need of cleaning! I can't seem to stop long enough to take the time, though.

    Looks like you are keeping busy, shirley. That's A LOT of leave to rake. I don't envy your hubby that job!
