Finishing February

Wow! February came and went quickly - I guess as quickly as the shortest month of the year goes. I was hoping for a major snowstorm - a day or two off from work. Although February was snowy - it was just snowy enough to be annoying, with long traffic delays and driveway shoveling, because after it snowed, it rained and then the temperature would drop to single digits and freeze everything into a solid block of ice - so there I was out in freezing rain shoveling a driveway with 4 or 5 inches of "SLURPEE" snow because if I didn't, the next morning my driveway would be like a skating rink!! But that's February on Long Island - we can have bitter cold and wind...and two days later it's 50 degrees!

I am still working on this blog. I want to add some photos and stuff of the scrappy work I have been doing. It's fun being on a Design Team, but challenging, because you never know what products you are going to get in the mail to work with. I must say though with ACBailey, I have never been disappointed!

I love ending a month and starting a new one - On the first of every month ACBailey has free shipping, so I always have an order sitting in the cart waiting to go. That free shipping applies to customers as well, so if you need to do some shopping, click the ACBailey link on the right. The Winter CHA stuff is beginning to arrive! We just got some very cool new Basic Grey and some adorable 3 Bugs stuff......

Shrove Tuesday

One more day until Lent begins....the reason I know this is that my birthday always falls during Lent and I am always afraid to give up cake because I would have no brithday cake at all!! I usually try to give up smoking, and always fail. Now that I stopped smoking, I was thinking this morning while driving to work, what I could conceivably give up without caving I am thinking Chocolate Candy - that way I can still have ice cream or a Chocolate martini and some Jelly Bellies and still be ok. Maybe I'll throw Chips in too - so that's it - for Lent I will offer up Chips and Chocolate Candy....hmmm maybe I will lose an ounce or too as well. I have some candy left over from Valentine's Day - some Ghiardelli's with caramel centers and one Lindt truffle - there are too many Ghiardelli's to eat all at once, so I will need to put those away - but I will pop the truffle in my mouth as soon as I get home -

One of these days I would love to go to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras - it sure looks like fun and a real feeding frenzy of good food.

Wishing you a Happy Fat Tuesday!!

Almost everyone I know has a blog! I don't know why I have put it off starting one for this long. I am a good writer and I have an interesting life and lots of funny stories to share. I am creative and do alot of scrapbooking and altered art in what little spare time I have. I am a consultant with ACBailey, which is a wonderful scrapbooking direct sales company that has a great community forum. ACBailey has an awesome Design team, of which I am part and we sponsor many fun things on the forum and have great examples of how to use the latest and greatest scrapbooking products. I hope, that over the next few weeks, as I learn this "blogging mindset" and all the things associated with it you will check back and see what's happening in my corner of the universe.
