Giveaway Coming on 50th Post

Today marks my 49th post and I know a lot of bloggers have giveaways for their 100th post, so I have decided I will have one for my 50th.

It seems like it took me forever to get this far. I simply LOVE blogging and reading other blogs is a favorite past-time of mine.

I will be gathering items for my giveaway tonight and plan on posting everything later today or sometime tomorrow.

I just wanted to announce it now since it just came to me.

Until Next Time.........

I'm So Excited!!

I have been studying and worrying that I was going to have to take a lot of math classes this summer, but today I went to GTCC for my Compass Testing and I actually scored out of all math classes!

I was and am so excited at the stress this relieves!! I called my husband and told him and he said there was no way and I could have knocked his head off.

Regardless, now I can focus more on the science of becoming a surgical tech. Let the fun begin!

Anyone Else Having Issues With Blogger?

Several times tonight when I was viewing blogs and I would try to go to another one or close one down it would keep popping up on my screen? I have never had this issue and am wondering if anyone has experienced this.

I know my friend Shari told me the other night when I moved everything from CCP blog to the new one I have now that my site did the same thing on her computer.

I also know that there is a scheduled outage this Thursday, so maybe it has something to do with that. Maybe, they are messing with things early?

New stuff I made

I had an order for some boxes and candles and thought that I would share them with you all.

I love making the fabric covered boxes, they are so fast and easy to do. I love how they turn out each and everytime. I usually paint the inside of my boxes, but decided to try something a little different this time. I used Walnut gel stain and I love how it turned out (pic 1).

I also made some canldes. They are from a mold and I used cinnamon wax. I have had the same pot of cinnamon wax for over 2 years now and it just keeps getting better and better. I treat it just like a bread starter, by just adding more wax, color, cinnamon and oil to it and the color is wonderful. On these candles I aslo painted the tea lights and covered them with cinnamon.

Thanks for looking..................

Until Next Time............. Take Care

Could it be this simple?

I think this is PERFECT~ Exactly what our economy needs!

There was an article from the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper on Sunday. The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the Economy?" I thought this was the BEST idea....I think this guy nailed it!

Dear Mr. President, Patriotic retirement:

There's about 40 million people over 50 in the work force - pay them $1 million apiece severance with stipulations:

1) They leave their jobs. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.

2) They buy NEW American cars. Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed.

3) They either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis fixed.

Like most people have been saying, the government is bailing out the wrong people!

This was emailed to me and I thought it hit home.
