Six Word Saturday 12/21/13


 Ten hours on the road today.

Driving to Eugene to see my grandparents and a few other relatives.  I took this trip in September and finally recovered just in time to do it again...

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!

This week I started listening/watching these Christmas songs again.  It really helps me get the Christmas spirit. 

Wishing you a wonderful week!

The new blog is coming together!

I have been working and reading and trying out code and changing themes and looking at pictures and reading some more...sigh.  Now I know why I switched to blogger way back in 2009, it is much easier to use and make changes. 

I want to make a living though this new blog so it might as well be work right from the beginning! 
Please check it out here and let me know what you think! 


I hope you are all safe and warm this week!

I haven't crafted in a month!


After crafting everyday for a month I was burnt out...  Now I don't have anything made for Christmas, cards, gifts etc.  I need to get my rear in gear!


Hope the week ahead is all you want it to be!

Time flies when you get older!

I didn't believe that saying when I was younger but it really is true!

I am thankful that this year has gone by relatively quickly although things that need to be settled are still not settled.  This year has been a little better than the last three years and I am hoping that next year will be even better!

Wishing you all a wonderful week and to everyone in the US a Happy Thanksgiving!
 
p.s. I finally got my www.theheartdesires.com to show up after issues with Firefox.  It has a temp theme up on it now as I am transferring posts over.  It did not transfer pics so it just has the default pics up right now.  I will be purchasing a custom or semi custom theme and hope to have it up and running by mid December.

Trying to start a Wordpress.org blog...
It is not at all easy!
I had a domain name already
 I just needed a hosting site
Both of those are ready now
But the site won't show up!

Can you ever finish when organizing?

Seems like I as soon as I think I am finished something else pops up and then when that is done the first one needs to be updated...  I see why we have stores just for containers!

31 Days Recap

YAY! I wasn't sure I would actually be able to post every day but I did!

While I had a lot of fun this challenge turned out to be more time-consuming than I had planed for it to be. It is my fault though, I mistakenly thought that it would take no time at all to find Movies and Music for 31 days, so I decided to add two more challenges to my task list: Photo's and Creativity!

Turns out I didn't make too many comments on the movies or music, though I did have a blast watching and listening during my search(that may or may not have been where my time was sucked up...). While I posted a picture everyday, they weren't all taken on that same day, don't know that is a requirement but it is what worked for me. Then it comes to the creativity challenge. I am crafty, but this one was hard for me and why is it that work goes crazy as soon as you start something new at home? Luckily I took two classes in one day and made 14 cards! You read that right, FOURTEEN! Needless to say I slept the whole next day! But having that many cards ready for the blog helped me quite a bit and left me with time to create at a slower pace and enjoy the process rather than being stressed.

I have only visited a few blogs during the month but now that the challenge is over I will make a point to go back and visit more of them. To make a long story longer, I had a great time with these challenges. Next time though, I will not try to tackle so much at once so I can enjoy the process and make a point to visit more blogs doing the challenge.

Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you found something I posted on in the last 31 Days that made you smile!

Day 31 i wore...Nah, I thought I would share a site that is even more rare than a picture of me.


The fact that these two are sitting this close together is amazing, all they do is fight.  It didn't last long long though, maybe a full minute, but I managed to get a pic!
