My my my....It's a BUSY time of year.
I have been keeping up with the thread; just haven't posted. We had some rather bad weather about 2 weeks ago now. Was literally iced in for days. Got a little scrappin done b/c there wasn't much else to do.
Saturday my whole family volunteered at the local Toy Drive "Chirstmas Mall". It's an amazing thing every year. Total of 207 volunteers that served a total of 1158 hrs. Giving toys to 615 kids from 245 families which equaled a total of 1845 toys and 49 food boxes given away. JUST AMAZING! This is what I love about this time of year. Everyone is so generous and giving-even to those we don't know.
I hope all you ladies are having a wonderful Holiday Season.

Hey ladies! I see everyone has been busy. I got some mojo too and it sure felt great to be crafting especially for Christmas. I painted a few more pictures for a calendar or booklet I am making as gifts. Plus, I got some cards to make. My dh needs a few for work and we need a few for loved ones. SO my craft table will be smoking this week. I will be sharing the latest paintings soon.

Cindy- Your Browns almost beat the Pats!!! How exciting was that? At least it was a thrilling game to watch. I wish they would of won too. Those cookies sound so yummy! I am in the cookie mood too. I was looking for some good ideas over the weekend on Pinterest and a few other places. I think I will start off with some sugar cookies I can decorate. Boy will Ron be happy! He loves sweets.

Waving hi to you all! Have a restful evening!

Got my haircut and I feel so much better (at least in appearance). Still stiff and sore today but now I'm home where I just might take it easy.

Hello, Pokeys. I have not had a minute in my scraproom for days. I decided to decorate, and am convinced the dusty boxes are not helping my stuffy nose! I'm just doing it slowly. Still not much energy.

Debi...

Got my haircut and I feel so much better (at least in appearance)
This is useless without a photo!!
Same goes for you, Cindy. By now your hair must have grown quite a bit.

Pam, I had to chuckle at Ruby's contribution to church. Kids are so cute!

Kelly, I have loved looking at your blog and clicking on your drawings so I can see them full size. You are getting so good. I am in awe of the eyes you do. Gorgeous. Hope you get your cards/projects all done.

Sat. night we had a big Honorary 100th Birthday for my dad. He didn't quite make it to 100, (passed away 2 years ago) but we had all the grands and great-grands invited. I think we served 75 people. My sis made a 3 ft. high time line with photos of the family, and events of the world every year since his birth in 1913. It hung on the wall all the way around the church hall. We told stories about dad and my sis had arranged all kinds of "grandpa" kind of games for the children. It
was a great evening together. Because of a messy divorce of one of my siblings, family events are often stressful. Some kids siding with the mom and some the dad, and they don't mix. But there were nieces and nephews I haven't seen at any family gathering since the divorce.

Sorry for the long post.

Missy, congrats on getting so many pages done!
Christine, nice to see you. Drop in when you can.
Jana, anything to report????
Cindy and Debi, thank you for keeping this thread going! You guys are great.

I'd better quit and clean up my decorating mess. I hope no one drops by tomorrow until after I get the boxes out of the living room!
Good luck on all your holiday preparations!!!

Good morning Peas! Hope all is well with everyone.

Nylene -your party for your Dad sounds like it was a total success and what a tribute to him. I hope you get your decorating done-are the grands going to put the village up for you this year?

Kelly-the cookies are good. I have one more to make. It is fig, date or apricot filling in puff pastry. I used to make something similar with my grandmother but she made a pastry dough that was similar to puff pastry. It was made with lard. I may try to replicate it using butter sometime.

Ok here's a pic of the hair so far.




Ok I have things to do so BBL!


Hugs, Cindy

Cindy, I love your hair! It looks so nice! Your cookies sound wonderful. We used to use lard for everything we ever made. Even after I was married we had a pig butchered and shared it with another couple. No wonder we all have clogged arteries!! My dad ate 2 eggs fried in lard every day of his life. He never took a cholesterol or blood pressure pill and only lived to be 97. Makes you wonder??????

The grands set up my village and that was much appreciated. The tree is up and almost all of the boxes are back downstairs. Now, how to keep Alex out of everything. He is such a BOY! and into everything.Can't wait to see his eyes when he sees the decorations.

Off to Costco to try to pick up Scout photos again. We need to finish their frames and get them wrapped today. I'll be back.

Ok I'll try to take a selfie later and post my haircut, although it won't look nearly as good as it did walking out of the parlor.

Yesterday was a wash. I hurt too much to do anything.

But today I feel better so I've just made my TO DO list for the week and am about ready to start tackling it. I always feel better when I get stuff done, but getting started is so hard for some reason.

Hope you get your SCOUT photos today NYLENE and finish those projects.

Cindy your hair looks nice a bit longer. How long are you wanting to grow it?

I went shorter to make it easier to care for now that it's harder for me to bend my arms to brush the back of my hair. I like it though so no sacrifice.

Have a productive day. I hope I will.

Debi, I'm sure your fall made you especially sore yesterday. Take it easy.

I should have been working in the house, but today I played in my scraproom for a while. Felt so good to be creative...or maybe the antibiotics have kicked in, because I felt so much better. Here's the page I finished.

Always Moving

I'll be back!

Good morning Peas! Thanks for the kind comments on my hair. I do want it to grow just a little longer but not much-down to my jawline I think. I have a lot of errands to run today. Not looking forward to it. I was up & down all night with cramps in my legs and feet. Grrrrr. I packed up 58 treat bags and boxes yesterday for the kids to take to school. They look so cute!

Nylene-glad you got to spend some time in your scrappy room yesterday and that you got to scrap a page! Alex is too cute and I know what you mean about busy. Bobby was never still, and was into everything.

Well after today I have all the wrapping to do. Going to try to do a few a day till I am done. Ok not much more to say...BBL!


Hugs, Cindy

CINDY I have all the wrapping to do too and I must say it isn't my favorite part as I'm not a good wrapper. Guess that's why I do digi and not paper scrapping...paper and I seem to not go well together. The kids won't mind how the presents look though.

I have just a couple evenings left with my kids...til they go off for a week with their dad. Tonight we are taking some photos so I can put one on our cards. Wrapping up homework I hope, as Thursday we have a Christmas concert the boys are performing in. Friday they leave for their dad's for the Christmas week.

I have plans to go to mom's on Saturday evening and spend the night so I can pick up my new tv (and hers as she bought one for herself also) on Sunday. I may spend the rest of the afternoon trying to connect it to Comcast, now that you have to use their digital box as well...

I can't believe Christmas is almost here...still waiting on a couple items to be delivered but if they come late, it will be ok since the boys won't get to open them til after Christmas.

Well my TO DO list is long since I didn't DO what I was suppose to DO off the TO DO yesterday's list so now that TO DO is on today's TO DO list too...LOL

Have a productive day.

Howdy, Pokey Pals. Absentee Pokey checking in to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year

I have been uber Pokey, in that I don't think I have scrapped anything since I left a DT in January I have been crafty in other ways, I have completed 3 quilts, and I am part way through a 4th. I have been knitting and crocheting, and also sewing up those Bucilla Christmas felt kits A couple of my fellow ex-pats are expecting babies in 2014, so I have been a good Auntie and got out the knitting needles One of the quilts I made was for a baby shower this past weekend, and the mother to be loved it, and it all got a bit emotional

I hope that everyone is looking forward to the festive season, and that you all get to spend time with friends and families. We are staying here and having the usual Christmas by ourselves. We are going to the neighbourhood Pizza party on Christmas Eve, which was great fun last year, so we are looking forward to that

We are also excited that we will be getting some visitors in the New Year - my BIL is visiting in January, and my parents are coming out again in February. A few friends from home are hoping to visit WDW in Orlando this year, and I hope we can meet up with some of them. I can't believe we have been here for 18 months now Time is going so fast! The kids are fully integrated now DD started High School in the fall, and she is loving it. She is doing her Mid Terms this week, which she is finding a bit stressful, but cannot wait until Friday as she is going down to Disney to perform in the Candlelight Concert with her HS Chorus And Mama gets to go as a chaperone They get access to Epcot after the concert Friday, stay overnight at a hotel and then get a free pass to the Magic Kingdom all day Saturday. As do I

My plan in 2014 is to get back into scrapbooking. I have a ton of photos ready, and DH is getting a new camera as a Christmas present, so I doubt if I'll ever be short of a photo or seven

SARAH !!!!!! Long time no see. I was just thinking about you the other day. I was wondering if you were still here and if you were going home for Christmas. Thanks for answering my questions! Glad your kids are integrated and doing well. But...........we need photos of all your fun needlework projects!!

Cindy, you are the "Queen Grandma" to make 58 packages of cute treats for the friends of your grands. We need to make a Queen badge for you!
What a sweet thing to do.

Debi,

Well my TO DO list is long since I didn't DO what I was suppose to DO off the TO DO yesterday's list so now that TO DO is on today's TO DO list too...LOL
I needed a good laugh today. That sounds like my life lately. I'm sure you will miss your boys over Christmas. Glad your shopping is done and the boys won't care how the packages look.

I'm hoping to get to scrap a bit more today. Two more packages to wrap and I should be ready. Still finishing a few cards...I'm sure they will arrive late. Oh, well, the thought was there on time.

Have a great day today, everyone!

Happy Wednesday! My week has been very nice with lots of crafting going on. I finished the cards for my dh's work. They turned out very cute. I know he will be excited to share them with his coworkers.

Peace, Love & Joy Cards

Debi, Nylene and Cindy Glad you got your deco up. I know your homes must look so festive and pretty. We hope to get our deco and tree up this weekend.

Cindy- Look at you girl!!! Fabulous! I like the lenght of your hair and you look great. Watch out Heidi Klum here comes Cindy! Oh your cookies sound so yummy. I was going to make some sugar cookies but after reading the recipe again I decided to make a cake instead. I was watch the Queen Latifah show and this guy made a swirly red and white cake so I am going to try that. Went shopping last night and got all the stuff. Should be fun.

Nylene- So glad you are feeling better. But keep taking it easy. Wow, what a celebration you had with your family. You dad was truly blessed to live such a long and beautiful life. He almost made to 100. Also, thanks for your cheers about my art. It feels so good to have you Peas along with me in my art journey. I have been doing more and even painted a few. So I will share those soon, too.

Sarah- Great to see you!!! You have been creating up a storm. I know all your crocheting and knitting must be beautiful. Have a happy holidays and how to see you around when you can.

Waving hi to you other ladies. Have a nice rest of the day.

Hello to all you, hope all is well!!

Since we are on the down slope of December,thought I would check in and chat. December is not a good month for me.... nuff said. I will endure and I love the time with family. We will have our annual "event" here on Christmas Eve and then a breakfast on Christmas morning at dd's.



I am making rugs like crazy... so not much scrapping right now.

We had a photo op with Ruby on the week-end and I hope we netted at least a few good shots of her without a dog tail or behind in the photo,lol! I know for sure, that I could not have been a children's photographer ,even if I were homeless and starving,lol!!

Sounds like the crafts,cookies,decor, and present wrapping are in full swing with all you ladies. Oh and almost forgot the haircuts. Cindy,way attractive and similar to mine. I am a lifetime member of the bob club and it works best for me. Mine is just a little below my ears and it is easy to care for. I looked at my first grade photo recently and sure enough,it was a long bob with the curls left in. I have curly hair/wavy so I must blow or iron out the curls. My Mother liked the curls so back then it was a variation.lol!!

Well another busy day for me... more rugs and some cleaning. All that fabric makes for a very lint filled house,needless to say but I don't care,I just love making the rugs.

Take care all of you and don't work so hard that you don't get to enjoy a little. Soon Come Pam

Pam, I had to chuckle about the remnants of the rug making. I think I'd trade you...DH is making some homemade Lincoln logs, thousands of them, and right now my living room is filled with a couple of 3 foot houses/churches, and the sawdust that was in the bottom of the box as he brought them up and dumped them out. I know the grands will love them, and if they don't, DH will still have a great time with them. But, what a mess they make until all the sawdust is worn off. I'm so sorry that Dec is not a good month for you. Breaks my heart. Hugs!

Off to do a bit of shopping for Cubs. I'll be back later.

Maribeth, where are you? Hope everything is OK? Amy, I'm sure you are up to your elbows in Christmas. Drop in when you get a minute.

Good evening Peas! Wow so many have stopped by and I am so glad to hear from everyone!

Sarah-so good to hear from you! We have missed you! You need to stop by more frequently whether you are scrapping or not. So glad you are adapting to the US!

Kelly-your cards are beautiful! You do such a good job!

Pam-yep I wore that other hair cut most of my life. but I am getting used to having my ears cove red! I am down to only having a little more wrapping, then baking those filled cookies. Then I can relax and enjoy the holiday and what it is really all about.

Thanks to all for you comments on the new do! LOL I actually have changed how I am styling it. I will see if I keep it this way which I think I will as I really like this look. But will wait and post Christmas photos.
Ok gonna sit back and take a deep breath. BBL

Good evening Peas! Nice seeing you Missy! Waving a big HI to everyone! I know everyone is busy preparing for and enjoying the holiday. I needed to destress a little so I scrapped a page this evening. This page will go into my JYC that I started three years ago. I wanted my family to know why my recipe is titled Dough Balls.

Snow Balls or Dough Balls?

I will stop back tomorrow! Have a good one!

Well, girls, I am still the absentee pea! I think I have left love for all the layouts for this month so far. I just wanted to pop in and wish you all a Merry Christmas! I hope everyone is doing well and prepared for Christmas. I just wrapped the last gift except for two that should be delivered Monday. I am officially on break from school, but I have worked the past two days for my other two jobs. I will be so glad when dh finishes school in May!

I haven't scrapped except for my monthly layouts for July and August. I will try to come back and post them soon.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!


Been there, done that--have the layout!

Good Morning peas! So nice to see you Amy and I am sure you will be glad when your DH is finished with school and you can go back to working one job. I am sure your kids miss you too.

Went to Kellie's for my birthday dinner last night. She made some of my favorite things for dinner. It was nice to spend the evening with my family. Today I will be trying to clean up my scrap room a little!

Nylene- Is Angie and the kids coming for Christmas? I know they were there for Thanksgiving but not sure if you said what they were doing for Christmas.

Well hope to hear from you girls soon! Have a great weekend!


Hugs, Cindy

Cindy, I love your hair!

Sarah, it is nice to see you here!

I seems that it was only a few days since I was here but I see it was longer than that! I wanted to report about my date I had. We had to reschedule it again and we finally meet last Friday. He was indecisive and I had to take control or we would have been stuck at the place we were meeting. :thumb down: I felt it awkward that when he got home he sent me a message asking what I thought about him. I don't think it is a match made in heaven! I thought if he wants to go out again, I would. He seemed shy and maybe he will come out of his shyness.

I am sitting at the Mudhouse with my nieces. They are closing early today for their Christmas party. I am trying to get things done for Christmas today since I work Monday and Tuesday night. I have been sleepy today and need a nap!

Good Sunday evening Peas. Jana good to see you and sorry your date turned out a little on the slow side. Hopefully if you go out a second time he will be a little more relaxed and you will have a better time!

I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!

See you soon.

I forgot to tell you something! I have received one of the best gifts I could receive which is that I am finally feeling like my old self again. It took two and a half years but I am finally there! I am so thankful that I am finally here and can even say those words. I thank you all for all your prayers and thinking of me for all this time.


Hugs, Cindy

Cindy that is wonderful. Wish I could say the same, but still battling the pneumonia (on week 8) and because I'm off my normal meds, dealing with lots of inflammation and pain with my RA. Hope I will be back to my "normal" soon as well. But Cindy you give us hope that it is possible.

Cindy, sorry we missed your Birthday on Sunday. Wishing you a wonderful year and many more to come. I'm so glad to know you are back to your same happy self. I know the past 2 years have been pretty rough for you. Hugs!

Amy, so nice to see you dropping in. I'm sure you are swamped at Christmas time and working 2 jobs doesn't help. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. I look forward to the time you can just do your one job and spend some time scrapping.

Jana, glad your date was not scary, but sounds like it was a bit slow. I hope the next one is better. You are in my prayers as you start this adventure.

Debi, I wish we had a magic wand that we could wave to make your pneumonia go away. Please take it easy, stay warm and let's get you better. Hope you have a great Christmas, even with the boys gone. Good time to rest and read a book. How did their room turn out...or are you waiting til they are gone?

Today I went to the American Crafts sale to meet an internet friend. Some of you may remember her, tinkgumby. She was here visiting from Texas so we met at the sale and I took her to lunch. We were just about finished when DH called saying his eye surgeon could get him in immediately. So that ended our visiting. She is so sweet.

Steve noticed last night that he wasn't seeing well with his good eye. I finally talked him into calling the surgeon and luckily he could see him today. He has another HUGE hemorrhage in the retina. His sight went from 20/30 to 20/150 in 2 days. Not much they can do, but wait and hope it absorbs and won't leave scars. He can't drive, of course, so he's not very happy right now.

Cindy, I have taken some pictures of the Lincoln Logs and will do a layout after Christmas. They are amazing.

Wishing each of you a wonderful Holiday season, celebrating whichever one you celebrate. I have loved getting to "know" each of you and hope you enjoy this time with family and friends.

I'll be back!

I forgot to post the layout I finished. It was a quick one of dd with my dad. I used one of Kerri Bradford's 12 days of Christmas free cut files for the star, border and holly berries.

BTW, I no longer receive an email when someone comments on my layouts or when I get a peamail. Anyone else? I put in a ticket last week, but haven't heard anything more. The ads come thru from 2peas.

Happy Birthday Cindy!! I hope you had a great day!

I got ready for work a little sooner than usual. I have some time to chill before leaving for work. I work the next couple of nights.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

Nylene I am having the same problem and put a ticket in also. Got a courtesy email back from Matt saying he was turning over to the tech group. I too am getting the advertising ones. I am praying for Steve's eye to heal. That poor guy and you also as I am sure it not easy dealing with it. I am glad you got to visit with your old Pea friend-at least for a short time!

Deb- I pray for you too to get better so you can go back on your meds. I


I had a very nice birthday and Thanks for your birthday wishes. This way it lasts a little longer!

Again Merry Christmas everyone!


Hugs, Cindy

Happy almost Christmas everyone! Hope you all are enjoying the days before Christmas. My dh will be off until the new year so I am happy to have him hope. Maybe one of his gifts will be a "honey do" list! I am sure he will just love that right?

I finally got my art calendars ordered and can't wait to see them tomorrow. Here is one of the pictures I made for the holidays. This is for you all too. Enjoy!

Comfort and Joy

Nylene- So sorry to here about your dh's eye but I am praying it all will go well. Hang in there!!! Sending you some of our cali sunshine today. Also, like Cindy I want to see what your dh has been creating. Hope to see some pics whenever you all have a chance.

Cindy- HAPPY HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!!!! So sorry we missed your day but hope you had a terrific time!!!! Wow, I am so happy you are feeling better. That is the best gift of all. Enjoy yourself and hope you get back to being Ms Trouble soon. Your dough cookie story is so cute and what a great memory.

Pam- So happy you have some fun crafts to work on even though this is a tough time. Hang in there too.

Jana- good to see you. I am glad your date was ok. Maybe the next time it will be better. Take your time and enjoy.

Amy- I know you can't wait till May!!! Hang in there and have a fun time with your family.

Waving hi and sending some holiday cheer to Debi, Missy, Christine, and you other ladies.

I too am just stopping by today hello and wish you happy holidays!

I see I missed Cindy's bday this month. Happy birthday & so glad you have had some improvement in your health.

We've had nasty cough, congestion & ear aches running through our household. It sure is long lasting but thankfully we are otherwise in good health so this will pass. We're very blessed.

We are not traveling for Christmas. We really like having this time making family traditions without travel stress.

Pregnancy is going well but has sucked up my time & energy. Hoping I'll get some scrapbook tools for Christmas that might inspire me to come back.

Mom-glad I dropped by the posts. Didn't know about dad's eye! Will call you. Lots of prayers to you both.

Hi, Angie! We will FaceTime with you a little later. Dad is napping!
Wish you were all well for Christmas. Wasn't it Christmas when Sam had a stomach bug here?

Thanks, everyone for the prayers and thoughts for DH. The weather here has been terrible. Everything is gray, the snow, the air, the sky. It's really hard for him to see in those conditions. But thanks to Kelly's sunshine sent this way, today is just gorgeous out there. The air is clear, the sky is bright blue, the snow is pristine white and DH said he can see so much better today. (Still not great, but better)

Cindy, thanks for sending in a ticket too. It's been over a week since I sent the ticket. I wonder if they have stopped that service. I hope not. Have a great time tomorrow with the grands.

Kelly, your artwork is amazing. I think even more important is how much you love it and working at it. BTW, I laughed when I read that Ron was getting a To Do list for Christmas. Funny!(but often necessary!)

Debi, I hope you get some rest while the boys are gone and that taking it easy will help to heal the pneumonia. You've had a rough couple of months and it's your turn to get well! You are in my prayers.

Pam, I hope you get to enjoy little Ruby over Christmas. We will have all the kids except Angie dropping in sometime during the day. We should have a fun time together. Hugs to you at this stressful time.

Christine, Amy, Jana, Maribeth, Missy, Sarah and all the Pokeys, I wish you a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. I'd post a cute picture like Cindy did, but can't figure out how to download one to do that. I'm so techno-challenged! The thought is there, the no-how isn't!


I am planning to continue with the Pokey Peas thread in 2014. I hope you will all join in when you can.

Merry Christmas! Maggie & I made red and green kettle corn this morning! Instead of regular white sugar I added the colored sugar you use for baking! It worked pretty well!Tastes good!

If anyone wants to post an image here in the thread you can open an account at Photobucket -they are free. Then upload your image or photo to your album there. You then need to resize it which you can do right from the screen you are on by clicking on edit. I resize mine to about 500-700 pixels. After you save it it will give you the url codes. Click on the one titled direct and copy it. Then in your thread here click on the image choice at the bottom of the thread and paste the url in the box. Then your image will show up after you click submit.

I hope that helps you Nylene! You can make your album private or public over there also. Good place to store or share your photos also.

Well I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!


Hugs, Cindy

Cindy, I know how to upload from my computer to imageshack and have done birthday gifs that way. But what I can't figure out is where to get the images and then how to get them downloaded to my computer. I worked yesterday for an hour trying to copy and download a clip art to my computer so I could then upload it to imageshack.

Today my 12 year old granddaughter said she'd help me learn to use the digital imaging program I've had for years. She came to print a brochure on my colored printer and I couldn't believe the things she had done. So that's going to be my Christmas gift from her.
Several hours of help!!

Now if I can just remember what she teaches me! This old brain gets befuddled sometimes. If her teaching sticks, I'll have a fun Merry Christmas picture for you all next year!

Just a quick but heartfelt MERRY CHRISTMAS to all my Pokey friends as I try to finish my wrapping and get to mom's for today's festivities.

Have a wonderful time with family and friends and post when you can.

Good morning Pokeys! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I know I did! I got lots of photos of the great time with family. Poor Kellie got the flu and was unable to participate. Now it is back to reality and need to do laundry! Hope to do some scrapping later.

Christmas is just starting for me...boys get home on Sunday so I have presents still needing wrapping for them.

Spent a nice day at Mom's and brought home lots of turkey and trimmings (always the best gift of all). Stayed overnight and spent the day with mom (went to the thrift stores (our hobby) and actually hit the casino for a couple hours but wasn't very lucky. Oh well it was still fun.

Now I'm home with lots to do and limited mobility, but I'll plug away at it.

Got to fix my son's computer...it's giving me the blue screen of death warning and impending hard drive failure...not a good thing. Hope I can fix it before it completely fails...wish me luck.

Have a relaxing weekend.

Nylene- Hi, I'm new and looking for a monthly challenge that I can get into. Is it ok if I join in for January? I am a four of 4 kids (12,11,6,4) and a kindergarten teacher. So I give all day and night, but I love to scrap. I have found that just having a challenge or goal for the month keeps me working. I looked at the post for December and you all look like nice and fun ladies....I may need some help at first as I have not posted any LO's yet. If you could help me alittle I'd be really thankful

Good Morning Peas! I Hope everyone is doing well! Nice to see you Brandy! You need to visit us more often!

Glitteracres- nice meeting you and welcome to the Pokey Peas! I am Cindy, wife, mom and gramma! I love scrapping and do both traditional and digital scrapping! We are pretty laid back here and understand that life does get int the way sometimes so if you get one layout or ten done we love sharing them with you. I will peamail you how to post a layout and a link. That should help a lot!

I stopped by to say Hi and post a layout I did. Need to get moving so here's the link and I will be back after while.!!!

Those Were the Days

Thanks for looking!


Hugs, Cindy

Brandy, welcome back. We have missed you. It's fun to see a layout from you! Keep popping in when you get a moment.

Glitteracres (love your username!), so glad to welcome you to the Pokey Peas. We are pretty laid back here, but try to encourage each other to keep scrapping. Cindy said she sent you some info on posting a link. She's a peach and is much more tech-savvy than I am. I'm happy to help with anything I know! Tell us a little about you. You can read about me on my bio by clicking on my name.

Cindy, I was flooded with memories when I clicked on your layout. We skated on a local pond when we were young kids...long before we started dating. So many fun memories! I pinned it with your other heritage layouts.

Hi, Pam, Kelly, Debi. Glad you each had a good Christmas. Ours was very nice, with family coming and going and then a big sleepover for the grands. I'm doing all the driving now, so that mean lots of trips to the lumber store, Home Depot, etc. I'm not getting any scrapping done! Maybe later today.

I'll be back before the end of the month. I'll probably post the new thread for January on the 31st. Hope you all get a little scrappy time before the end of 2013.

Pam, we need photos of those rugs!!!!!
