I did it

I did it....I finally joined the blog world! Yes this lady is finally stepping into the 21st century. This blog will be about some of this and little of that.

Some of you know I just started selling Uppercase Living. If you'd like some great ideas for Holiday gifts check out my website at


Thanks to all of you who have held Open Houses for me. I appreciate you helping me get this new business off the ground. It's been great meeting your families and friends something I don't often get to do. I'm looking forward to holding the new ones I have scheduled.

I'm working on Christmas presents, making all the decorations for our Christmas tree, I also joined two Christmas swaps so I have two gifts to make them, remodeling the house in Oxnard, refinishing furniture for our bedroom here in Oxnard ( I'm not sure how this will turn out hopefully like I envision. I will post pictures as soon as I get the bedroom set done, I'm finishing up a scrapbook for a friend. I will try and post some of my favorite pages tomorrow.

For my Scrapbooking buddies I want you to know I will be giving gifts away
every week until Christmas. I will post a picture tomorrow. If you'd like to win all you have to do is sign up for our newsletter at and leave me a commit here letting me know you added your name. So come back often and be sure and tell your Friends. Don't forget to leave your comments. I will be seeing who leaves me the most comments between now and Christmas and I will have a special present for you.

For those of you who have been asking about my Mom and Mark's Dad they are both doing about the same. Thank you for all your prayers. We hope you will continue to pray for them.

I thought if I kept track of how many days left it would help me get everything done. Anyone need encouragement? I know I do I always take on more than I should at the Holidays. I always want to make everything. Who in their right mind would just be starting to make all the decorations for their tree. Why not let me know what your making for the Holidays and we can keep each other on track.

I'm also cooking Thanksgiving dinner so tomorrow I will share some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes with you! I know many of you have asked me to publish a cookbook....this is probably as close as I'm going to get. I will be posting some of my favorite recipes from time to time. Have a great evening!

Hey You! Glad you're doing this.
Thanks for being who you are! We lucked out when Mark got you for us! And we love you lots!
Don't know what today will bring but if Mom is up to it after we see Dad we may stop by. I'll call first just to give you a heads up!
BTW: Good blog job! How come some people do everything so well?
