Ornament Exchange....think Christmas...

Fall approaches so As does thoughts of Christmas. What I absolutely love about this next season is planning what will be purchased to signify our YEAR ORNAMENTS. As I shared this with others, I realized that many of YOU do the same ....

This represented the year we wrote our Nutrition book .... still makes me smile,
because Kermit has always had a special place in my heart and one of my dearest
friends has had this name for decades .... because he can mimick Kermit to a T. 


Sooooo I thought why not an ornament exchange WORLD WIDE ...... YOU can make it or purchase it and we will try to match you with someone who is close to you, to eliminate costly shipping charges ..

See you in September PAPER LADIES.....



I love  SEPTEMBER , possibly of all the months of the year, this one
has been my favourite all of my life. It meant more learning ...
MORE classes, more books, more challenges ..

It also meant UNIFORMS, I never was in school where I was not in a uniform. 
At boarding school it was navy blue and white and grey ...
in Nursing School it was all white and the occasional sweater in blue ...
When I went into Big Pharma, many of us wore either navy blue and black suits ..
You could always find us in medical and hospitals ... we were the ones with 
the details bags in black and on wheels ...
(Where all of our samples were for the dr's)

The Stella LIGHT experience...it will be your last purchase!






I have years For shared with you over and over, "we are only as good as our tools!"  Well lighting is a great tool, the most necessary tool in fact for superior results. As   I,  WE have been working on a very detailed QUILT QUILT --- yes for an upcoming contest, I realized how wonderful this STELLA LIGHT is to my life .....
(Now that I have so much time on my hands, I have lots of time for some very special projects)

Like sharing this amazing LIGHT!

No more TEARS....quick lesson on SALSA making..


Onion GOGGLES yes ..... I have shed my last tears ....
Years ago, and I am thinking at least 8-10 years ago
David purchased these for me after seeing too many stains of mascara on my cheeks ...
Ok, now that could have been avoided with not wearing any mascara at all ...
.... but TODAY, it does not matter ....
I still had the packaging for goodness sake ....
get yourself a pair of these or swimmers goggles..would do the same actually ...

So anyway, this is my first tool to making SALSA that is imperative ....

Canning Season is HERE!



Canning season is here....and why I know is because by September
my Pantry becomes full of relish, salsa, apple pies ( freezer) apple sauce
pear sauce and some soups....

Although I am very sad to see our SUMMER end, there is something 
about FALL that tickles all of my senses...

GINGHAM and Yarn Bowls....bet you have one in your cupboards?


Not surprising I would figure out how to do something GINGHAM in crochet...
I ordered some cotton / linen yarn from UK, it was here in less than a week...

Again since I do not know how to read patterns, all I need is to look at something
and I can usually figure it out..So I chose 3 skeins of yarn, a dark blue a light blue and a white
and just began crochet last night....
( note it has been less than a month since I picked up a crochet hook, 
if I can do it anyone can)
