Just a little something

Well Thursday night my computer went all the way through it's updating and everything seems to be working ok. I guess I lucked out.

The other day while I was out walking I stopped to admire some of the flowers in front of the funeral home. I have always liked black eyed susans.



I took the picture and then I noticed a rock leaning up against the sign post. I left it there for someone else to find.

Do they paint and hide the rocks in your neck of the woods? If they do have you found any?

well that's a fine how do you do

Wednesday when I went to use my computer it said it was restarting. No biggie. I waited a bit but since I already had a post scheduled I got tired of waiting and went about my business. Yesterday I go up to do a post and it's still sitting there doing the same thing. I pulled the plug then turned it back on. As I type this it's saying installing updated do not shut down your computer.  Oops!

So now I'm hoping it updates everything ok and maybe tomorrow you'll get the post I was planning on today

How about an extreme blast from the past today


 Don't worry Gibbs said it was ok to post Duke so long if I used an old picture of him for the big finish


For the record  I don't like trying to  do a post from my tablet. It's a bit frustrating

Easy peasy greeting cards

I had a bunch of plain greeting cards that have been sitting far too long. I also had some assorted cards for putting together quick albums. 
I simply adhered the journal cards to the card blanks and instand greeting cards.

9 quick all occasion cards




Maybe not the best layout but I sort of liked them

Altered file folders

With a few simple folds and cuts you can turn an ordinary file folder into a handy note pad folio. I used the tutorial I found HERE but made a few adjustments on sizing to better suit what I had.

For the first one I used a fancier folder. I could add additional decorating to this or leave it as is. Not sure which I'll do yet.

The outside

The inside. On this one I used a bit of velcro to keep it closed. The left side is a pocket for storing notes or whatever else. I also used a piece of the folder that had been cut off to top the note pad to coordinate with the folder.


For the second one I used a plain manilla folder and decorated with scrapbook paper


Inside.I didn't add the velcro on this one.

And those are my altered file folders. I'm thinking about making these in a smaller size as well. These are a 5 x 7 tablet but if I make the smaller size you could easily fit one in your purse.
