Blog help needed

OK so I am hoping some of you long time bloggers out there can give me some pointers.  I am having no luck figuring out how to add "New" post to the different pages on my blog here.  I have to be missing something?  Every thing keeps posting to HOME.  So I have just been editing each page.  But I want it to be a New Post and not look like just a continuation of previous post. Peek at my other pages and you'll see what I mean.  Does any of that even make sense, well I hope so.  Any advice would be extremely appreciated.  I've been checking a lot of blog help sites but finding nothing.  

until next time........

One more thing learned

Well I figured out how to fix the comments section, so now you all can leave me some comments, come on you know you want to (wink).  I am learning a lot.  Found a cool blog site that has a lot of good information about Blogging in general and it's free to boot!  It's called Lee Lou Blogs.  I am loving this site, lots of tutorials and freebie stuff for blogs and wallpapers and more,  you should check it out if don't know about it yet.

That's it for today, have a great weekend!

Until next time...........

Just one of those days

Hello, Not feeling so hot today, went to doctor's and have a intestinal virus......been trying to fight it off for 3 days now, and doc says let it run it course.  So just lying around watching bad TV and trying rest.  Which is hard for me, I just can't stay still for long!  Always into something.  I seem to have lost my Creative Mojo though I really want to work on Christmas Cards but just can't find the right idea for them yet.  Nothing seems to look just right to me, so I scrap it.  Anybody else ever feel like that?

Shopping and a New Friend

It's Monday afternoon and I am just sitting for the first time today at 4pm.  I have had a nice day so far though.  I have been chatting with a new lady friend  that is on one of the craft forums I frequent.  We decided that it would nice to meet face to face before we go the Creative Keepsakes' Convention next month in San Marcos, TX.   We decided on meeting at a new Achievers store midway between our homes.  It was fun and my new friend, Liz, is very sweet.  She knows a lot about scrap booking and a lot about products I have never used but will now!  We spent 1 1/2 hrs browsing , talking and buying too.... it was fun to have someone who loves crafting as much as I do to shop with.  And we are making plans to meet up at the convention and shop there, better start saving my pennies now!  Now since I am planning on being able to spend a bit next month I could not spend a lot today, but I did get a couple of handy things for the craft area.  All were on sale so I didn't feel to bad, lol.  Here 's what I got.

Mini Scor-pal for cardmaking & Xyron Tape Runner

And the deal here today was that when you buy the tape runner you get another refill tape for "Free" this week only!  And there's 100 ft of tape in one and run about $10 bucks, so that was a nice savings.  Can't wait to try all of it out.  Oh almost forgot, the Scar-Pal came with a a free zipper sleeve too. Well that's my day so far today.  Click over to the Card Page to see what I dug out of my Christmas card making stash to start on the Christmas Cards List.  Everyone not only likes my handmade cards, but now they expect them.....And I hate to disappoint anyone.  

Until next time...

Guess I didn't figure it out!!!

Darn, Darn and Darn!   Can any of you tell me how to post a "new post" on the actual page of the blog you want it on, everything keeps posting on my home page..... :(   Wanted that last post to be on my Card Page!   !$@&#(@) ........ Someone please help save...........

I figured it out....

SOOOO, I finally figured out how to post on each page.   I can be a bit slow when it comes to this blogging stuff.  But once I figure it out, I don't forget!  

I also wanted to share my challenge prize from one of my House Mouse Card Challenges I won.  It arrived safe and sound all the way from Canada.  Can't wait to use this stuff.......
July 2012 House Mouse Challenge Prize on Paper Craft Planet
Still waiting on 1 more Prize pack for the 2nd house mouse card I entered in another challenge last month.  I'll be sure to share a pic when it arrives.

Until next time,

Rainy Saturday

It's Saturday afternoon and we have Rain, finally yippee.  Here in TX we have a draught going on!  Been this way a few years now and we need and want rain!!  So even a little sprinkle like we just got is more than welcomed here.  And I don't have to water my plants now, always a good thing.  

Made some yummy fruit mix for the family today, thought I share:
Gotta love fresh fruit this time of year.  I had a bowl and it is so Yummy!! MMMMMM....

Had a surprise in the mail yesterday, my sweet doll of a MOM, sent me a great card, thought I'd share it with you.  She is 75 and makes cards and sews ans knits and crochets and crafts just like me!  So now we know who I get it from, is her great card:

Card from my Momma

 Alright, that's it for today folks, going out on the town this evening to a Benefit for a musician friend who passed a way last summer.  The old Band has put a CD together of unpublished Music of our dear friend "Chadd Thomas". He was a great local Rock-a-Billy Musician in our area.  You can hear his music on You Tube, just look for Chadd Thomas and the Crazy Kings.  We loved their music, RIP Chad!!  So we are going to show our support to his family and friends........and get the CD too!

Have a wonderful Saturday!
Until next time

Happy Friday

Happy Friday everyone. I 'm getting a late start today, sorry.  Decided at the last moment last evening to go out to dinner.  Hubby was wanting seafood, the closet place with semi decent seafood even remotely close (30-40 minutes away) to us is Red Lobster.  So we got cleaned up headed out and much to our surprise got seated with in 10 minutes and the service was good.  Food was not fabulous but good, but it is a chain restaurant.... We both got the ultimate feast and left very full.  Made it home and crashed out with full bellies.  A good night I'd say. 

I have been busy trying to get this blog seen by more people and Yay, I have a follower, finally. Thanks Roxann for your sweet comments.  Hope you'll be a regular here.  I have also joined some challenges over at Outlawz Challenge Group.  Fun, Fun group of crafters there.  I am going to add my Creative Freebie Challenge card on my card page next. Click over to there and to see what I came up with yesterday for this challenge.  

Well that's it for now, gotta finish laundry and clean abit...anyone wanna help, LOL....

Have a great weekend

Back and feeling confident

Well now that I've played a bit with this blog stuff for a while I think I can handle it, maybe, lol.....It won't look all professional for a while, but, oh well it's out here.

I added some of my creations in paper and yarn to the menu pages.  Check them out and let me know what you think.  I'll be working over the next week to try to make this blog a better place to visit, hopefully. Any suggestions??? 

Bye for now...........
