I found a wonderful site yesterday called Just Digital Designs. I know there are Tons of sites so why add another? Well first of all there are some really nice freebies there, for joining I got a welcome gift called My Zen by Brownie Scraps which I made the top LO with and I got Sun Kissed by Sweet Tomato and made the second page with. I did these for challenges there.
I actually joined to get a free kit by Laura which is another cute one.
It's an open gallery and works like DST and DTS so all my DESIGNER friends, check it out!

I am really early posting because I couldn't sleep. Gina and Trey went out to eat so Charli came and played with me a little while. She actually asked "What cha doin'?" tonight, I can understand her very well. She is talking more than a couple of my two year olds at work. She followed Les into the living room and he didn't realize it and before I could follow her she knocked off a truck from my shelf (one Daddy gave Les) and it fell on her foot and bruised it. He tried to comfort her but Meme just does it better, LOL! She was funny with the bag of ice we got her to put on it, I did get pictures!
I am so happy to have a long week end! Les has to work everyday so I will be scrapping and crafting! Unless Gina needs me I only plan on going to church tomorrow. I will post some of the things I make, too.

I thought this picture was a cute one and wanted to play with color selection for the glasses. I found them for $1 at Maxway. She is fascinated with my glasses like most kids at this age are so I thought she would like them. I am so happy to have a 3 day week end! I don't have any special plans so I guess I might get caught up on my CT work! I have a lot of kits I have done but have to send links to the designer and have some new kits, too, Cathy K did a Birthday Kit for week 3 of the contest. I will be doing some pages with it and post.
Les has to work Sunday and Monday but we are planning on going to see Star Trek at the Drive In after church Sunday Night with a group of friends from church. Gina might go, too. I am not going for the movie but the company!

My Grandmother let me have this wagon. At first Charli was afraid to ride but Jeff pulled her and I around a little and she was OK with riding.
I made this page with a new kit called Go! Go! Go! by Connie Prince.
Not really a lot to say today, got a couple more pieces made for the craft show yesterday and played with Charli... she is now 16 months old!

I walked in the house with a bag and Charli asked me "What's that?" and pointed to the bag. When I showed her what was inside was a great 'monster sleeping bag' my Mom had sent her. She loved it! I even called my Mom to tell her how much Charli enjoyed it.
I can't wait to see her in the afternoon! She has started loving on me at random times and saying more and more, she picked up her play phone the other day and said "what's up?"
I didn't spend much time at all on the computer yesterday, I have decided to do the craft show with Twila so I am making a few pieces to sell. I sure hope we have better luck than we had before!

I have been going through some older pictures this last week and found this one. I filtered it and made a page with a kit called Going Green by Connie Prince I want you to go over to this site and look at my avatar there... Isn't that TOO FUNNY! I am waiting to see how many people go look because I only have 4 views right now.
There are a lot of sites I enjoy but this isn't one of them. If your page is not looked at you have not accomplished what your set out to do as a Creative Team, get the kit seen! At Gotta Pixel I have 21 views and 3 comments, and at my Favorite site Scrapable I have 18 views and 5 comments. There are sites that it is a chore to post at because no matter how you do the challenges and comment on others your page is 'lost'
Well that's my two cents, LOL!
I saw the cutest candle holder made from a Mason Jar and am trying to make one, I know why I have not made any jewelry in awhile! That wire wrapping is really getting harder with my hands, Gina told me last Sunday she could see my thumbs were worse. At least they don't hurt. I got one almost done, I will take pictures and show you later.

This is the mill that was beside Granddaddy Gary's House. Most of what was very important to our town, Greenwood Mills, is now gone. Everyone has relatives that worked in the mills if they grew up here, it is so sad to see them torn down or sitting there deserted! We live in Mathews Mill Village which was established in 1889, I can take a 5 minute walk and visit my Great-grandmother's grave, I take Charli to feed the ducks at the end of my block at the Mill Pond, drive past my Dad's old workplace called the Compound and Self Memorial Hospital which was built by Mr. Self who owned the mills.

I love yard sales! I especially love church and fund raisers. I got this cute fellow yesterday at the Lutheran Church to add to my collection.
Today Gina and I went to Greenville. I needed to get the mats for my photographs for the Festival of Flowers, I am still a little horse but being with her and Charli I felt much better. Charli really does not like to shop!
