The View

Hubby and I took a drive a couple of weeks ago looking for property. I took this picture between the town we live in now and the town we are going to move to. Isn't it just gorgeous? We love it here. Of course, right now everything is brown and dreary... It's winter, what do you expect?
Some of you that are not from Southeast Texas (or other similar areas) will not be impressed with our hills... But for me (a lifelong Southeast Texas girl), this view is fabulous!

Easter Chick

Since we have been moving and updating our house to put on the market, I haven't had a lot of time to create. So, when I saw the PCP sketch challenge and CBC's color challenge, I thought I would kill three birds with one stone (card)! I have made 58 of these little guys to send out as my Easter cards to friends and family! Woo-hoo!

And I noticed Courtney's post about the SRDT challenge for doing the inside of the card. That is always easy for me! I decorate the inside of my card every single time!

Anyway, I had a blast doing this. It was nice to have gotten my stuff unpacked to a point that I could get back to my desk and create!
Stay tuned. There will continue to be more to come!

Hello Again!

Hello everyone! I bet you all thought that I had fallen off the face of the earth... But no!!! :)

Things have just been way more crazy than I anticipated. I won't go into details here, but suffice it to say that moving from the city to the country has its own set of problems that I never foresaw!!!!

We had our first country episode tonight. I'm smiling now, but I wasn't when it happened...

I was sitting watching a movie (argh - that's a whole other story) when I started smelling a smell that I can't even describe. The best way is to say that it smelled like some kind of chemical burning. My eyes started watering and my head started hurting. It was awful. I went to the back door and the odor was getting stronger and stronger. It was aw-w-w-w-ful.

It didn't take long and the whole house smelled like it. I went outside and it was worse out there. Then it dawned on me where I have smelled something like it... on the highway...

Well, it seems that a skunk walked past the fence in the yard and the dogs started barking at it. Well, Mr. Skunk did what all good skunks do and sprayed! Best I can tell is that he missed the dogs, but the neighbors will probably never forgive us for this! The smell lingered for about 2 hours outside.

However, when I left home to come to the PD to post this, my house still smelled awful! :(

Since things are beginning to get a little more back to normal, I am hoping to start posting more regularly again. Keep checking back for pictures and projects. ...and more tales of country life!

Hello all! I just got back into Beaumont on my way to Stampin' Up! Leadership Convention in Orlando. Will try to post some entries from Orlando of photos that we take there. Will be at the mercy of others there with their laptops... So, we'll see!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year!
