Autumn's Sky Continues with Week Three!

Well since my physical I have been doctoring with a few things. I guess I must admit I am not 21 any more LOL. There are some signs of aging, hee-hee. Went to cardiac today to get two types of heart monitor. A holster 24 hr one and an event monitor that I have to use for a month. Gosh! We'll just deal with things once the tests come in and I learn more. Goodness!

It is so itchy though, and I can't take a shower. ugh! ;P

Well here is week three of Autumn's Sky... enjoy!

Full kit upon completion!

Here is Week 3

Autumn's Sky Continues with Week Two

Hi all,

Well I made it through a very busy week again. I tried to cut back and work 50 hrs only this week but somehow I still ended up working some 65 hrs. Oh, Man!!! Anywho...

Not much to say here except I live breathe work and get some sleep in between a bit, LOL! It does not look like I will have the time to commit to a design store any time soon. I will be trying my hand at setting up a shop on my own site however so wish me luck!

Here is WEEK TWO of Autumn's Sky.

Long Awaited Autumn's Sky! ;)

Weeeeeee.... I have been on a whirl wind ride. I went to Dallas Texas for a week of intensive training and stayed in a luxury hotel and just had a blast! Then I cam home and the very next day started working at the Samsung store that Saturday morning last month. Phew! I have been working solid 65 hour weeks and sometimes 15 hour days. OMGosh! so busy to say the least. But I am doing it!!! I LOVE my new job!

Anyway. I have been rushed off my feet all month. Last Saturday was my first day off all month and I slept all day LOL. I have tomorrow off so I thought that I would change things up a bit and post my kits after work late Friday nights so they are available during the weekends. Good idea, yes?


 I just love the combinations of the blue/pink autumn sky and all of the turning leaves and browns of autumn.

Here is the first part of Autumn's Sky.

Delay to Autumn's Sky

Sorry folks...I will be away on a business trip for a week. I hope to post at some time during the week depending on the internet connection there. I will not be able to post the freebie this Sunday.

I got a new job and I am flying off to Texas for a week of intensive training! I am so excited!

Anyone seen any navy/ dark blue slacks/ pants/ Dockers for women size 20 or 22? Anywhere? I need them for my uniform.

Concluding Sea Swept

Hi all,

I went away at the spur of the moment this weekend. I thought that my friend's internet connection up at her lake house would be strong enough to make my post, but alas, that did not work out. so I am late posting again this week....so sorry!

I drove 3.5 hours, about 185 miles to her house up in Wilmar, MN. We cleared out her garden and picked several buckets of tomatoes. We were planning on making 5 recipes but ended up canning three recipes and had fresh tomato BLTs, Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato sandwiches. YUM!

We made salsa and jalapeno Christmas jelly and then a couple jars of Italian Stewed Tomatoes. Proved to be a very productive weekend. I made it home late last night, just in time to have a few hours before going in to work this morning. I had to basically unplug all weekend. I missed my Internet, LOL!

So, here is the last week and section of Sea Swept... Next Sunday I will post the first part of Autumn's Sky.

So this is next week's Freebie:

More Beauty for your Sundays - Sea Swept

Well this ended up being a harder week than I thought that it would be. My Birthday was an amazing day on Monday the 16th, I had a surprise invitation to lunch with my cousin. And then out of the blue I got together with my Dad for supper (It had not previously been planned either.) Then the week continued with job interviews and lots of running around.

I worked longer days than usual because I had taken off for My Birthday on Monday. A ten hour day on your feet is a long day. LOL!

Well the poll finished with Autumn skies in the lead to be the next freebie kit. I'll try to have larger parts so the kit finishes a bit quicker, say, in about a month instead of two months.

Well I'm going to finish this post and then schedule it to post tonight... I have house cleaning to do as I have a housing inspection on Tuesday.

Belated Birthday - Sea Swept

Well, I had a blast of a time traveling for my Birthday. Hee-hee.

I drove 80 some miles to visit my son last Saturday, it really made my day!!!

Then, I drove the next day 110 miles down into Iowa to meet an old friend and see a movie and have dinner. I also popped into the McDonald's down there and visited with my friend and co-worker from McDonald's. She moved down there. So I had to say "hi".

BTW, Immortal Instruments- City of Bones is an awesome movie. Just the kind I like in Sci-Fi/ fantasy! Loved it!

Another year older... sigh.

Here is Week 5 sorry that it is late.

Sea Swept Freebie: Week Three

I acquired some huge zucchinis this week. I plan to bake a batch of zucchini snack break to take in to work. Yum! I am going to Google a recipe for this as I can not find my friend Betty's yummy yummy recipe. If it turns out tasting good then I will scrap it up and add it to the recipe pile!

I plan on having some recipe cards published into some 4x6 or 5x7 albums someday soon. I had been printing them out on my printer but I seem to be going through the ink that way fast! LOL. I ended up giving my album to my cousin Marsha when she was visiting. So now I have to peek at my tablet for my good "keeper" recipes! But that's alright, cause I love my tablet too!

On another note... The job hunt continues. I recently graduated in I.T. (computer work) and Business Admin. I have A.A. degrees in the fields. I am so excited to be done! But... Now they are teaching C# and writing apps. So cool. I can study the new course material for free, just a perk of doing the Tech route at Minnesota School of Business (Globe College). I only had to pay for the book, Woot!

I have made a cute little windows app to play Rock, Paper, Scissors so far. I had a blast figuring it out!!! Love writing code! It does not like me so well as I get stuck a lot on a bug fix or a logical error right at bedtime and then can't sleep, but I am trying to try to journal it so I can maybe work through it. Pandora streamed onto my bedroom TV seems to help though :) I have a cool NetGear NeoTV box player. Love the Pandora button directly on the remote! Coolness!

I also found a new tech gadget "Push 2 TV" adapter that sends your laptop monitor feed to an HDTV wirelessly. Only 20 something $$s so I am going to have that on my Birthday wishlist for this fall! Hee-hee.

I have the Week Three freebie for you below. It should stretch over 8 weeks total. :) That last week all the parts will still be available but I will take the links down one week after a kit finishes so make sure to come back!

Sea Swept...the Beauty Continues on Sundays.

Welcome to week 2 of my Sea Swept Giveaway. Every Sunday I will be giving a part to a beautiful Personal Use kit. I am not currently selling in a store at the moment but my store bought kits are all scrap-for-hire/others compatible. My freebies are only for PU Use. My freebies will only be available for one week after the finish of a kit so make sure to come back every Sunday.

The full kit when complete.


I am hoping to get a tutorial made in the next few weeks as well leave a comment for me on what kind of tutorial you would be interested in.

Well this week last Sunday I was a traveling up to Minneapolis, MN, USA to see a game of baseball where the Minnesota Twins played the Chicago White Sox. It was so sunny and wonderfully warm. not too hot, just perfect 83 degrees, just right!

I am not much of a sun lover as I get sun stroke quite easily and would you know, I forgot to bring a hat? So... I did make it through the sixth inning about 2 hours out in the sun out of the 9 innings of the complete game. The price of food and drink amazed me!!! They wanted $4.50 for a bottle of water that sells for $1.50 in the grocery store. Gosh! Well, the Chicago White Sox ended up winning the game but it was a blast anyway and I went with my new BFF Tina up to the game. This was our summer trip from work at the car dealership, They treat their employees right! Wooooo! It was a perfect day!!
