I certainly won't complain while my neighbors over in the neighboring town of Eagle are cleaning out from the tornado that went through their bucolic village on Monday night and so many have suffered damaged.  My complaint of Day 2 with scads of rain and power outages would be a petty snarky mewling!  Yeah, I'm sure the chicken coops will be floating, the garden is pretty mucky, but the worst, is that it's the second day in a row that I've slept in until 7am.  This from a girl whose alarm goes off at 5 am so that I can have some peaceful office time without the darlings interrupting every 15 minutes.  Rob's got an internal alarm so if he were home, he'd wake me up but alas, he's been out of town on business, so I'm starting to feel a bit behind the 8-ball and a bit off my game.  But my home is standing, my family is safe, (mildewing but safe) and all is right in our world.  I do have much to be thankful for.  I'll just need to make this short a second day in a row!  I'm sure you'll understand….probably prefer it!  🙂

Here's a quick card that will be one of the Crystal Effects class.  I am needing to make a few adjustments to the normal schedule for the Crystal Effects class.  Normally I hold this Product class on the third Tuesday of the month (AM & PM).  With an additional AM class the day prior.  I have a scheduling conflict that's come up so that Featured Product Class-Crystal Effects will be held on the following dates.

  • Monday:  July 12th @ 6:30pm
  • Monday:  July 19th @ 9:30am
  • Tuesday:  July 20th @ 9:30am
