Wow! I'm back again. I went online to the Internet Explorer. com. They have a free fix it program that you can download. I ran the program and I had 1501 problems, the free program only fixed 2 of them. They want money to fix the other 1499. But, the good news is I got back online.
Here is a picture of the candy boxes that I made last Tuesday when Bonnie and Penny came over.
Catherine had to get glasses. Her eyes are almost as bad as her dad's. She keeps looking around surprised at everything. I think she is so cute with them on.

Wow! This was unexpected. I have been having trouble with my Internet Explorer program, but this morning it seems to be working just fine. Bonnie and Penny came over last night to work on some of the little candy boxes that we did for projects this month. I finished six. They are all glittered and filled with candy. Penny made nine, but she still needs to make the belly bands and design the tops. I'm not sure how many Bonnie cut out, she is prepping for a class. We all had a good time. Thanks Bonnie and Penny for coming over to play! I wasn't expecting to be able to blog this morning, so I don't have a photo ready. Have a great day!

Tonight was my Stamper's Ten club meeting. Everything went well, and the projects were great. Here is a little candy box that we created and filled with candy. I plan on doing some up for little Christmas surprises. We will create this same project in my Monday Stamper's Ten.

I took an empty container from the caramel popcorn that I get from Target and made a trick-or-treat container for Catherine. She called me tonight to see if I had found the black wire that I wanted to finish the top with. I think she will like it. The spider is from Stampin' Up decor elements.

I made this gift box while trying to decide on a project for October's Stamper's Ten club. I decided on a different project for this month, but a variation of this could show up at a future club meeting. Our Ocala Stamper's Ten will meet on Monday, October 20th at Priceless. Remember that she has a new location. Check out the web site for Priceless for a map, if your not sure.

I was looking at some old PaperCraft magazines and came across a gift bag for a guy. It's always hard for me to come up with something masculine. I just had the skull and crossbones paper out working on Halloween projects. So, I pulled out a scrap of the paper and a plain gift bag. Here is my CASED version of the gift bag in PaperCraft, September '07.

Here is a sneak peek of one of this months projects. The color combination may be different. I haven't decided on the colors yet. I combined several and love them all. The light was not very good on this photo. I think my camera is acting up. I hope not, I can't afford a new one right now.
JP came by the house to go fishing with us this afternoon. We caught several brim and sunfish. I should have taken a picture of the sunfish, they were beautiful. Here is one of Sonny and JP.
My husband can be such a "MALE" sometimes. (I'm being nice!) When we got back from the river he asked me, "You didn't like me playing with that kid? Did you?" H_ ll no! The kid he was "playing" with was 18, and wearing a skimpy bikini. Let's just say that a doghouse would be to dang comfortable for him right now!
I think I'll go stamp, I need to pound on something! lol

I finished my bookmarks. I made several of the spider ones. Not only were they cute, they were really easy to make. We will have our Ocala Stamper's Ten club meeting on Monday the 20th at the new location of Priceless. Thanks Trish!

Priceless will be closed on Monday the 20th, which would be our next Ocala Stamper's Ten meeting night. I have to get with Trish to find out if we can move it to the 27th. This will be for the Ocala, Monday group only!
I am making some bookmarks for my students for Halloween. I don't want to sugar them all up. They don't need it. Here are some of them. These bookmarks are made from scrap paper and plain white labels. I am keeping the 3D effect down, because they will be mashed between the pages of a good book. I hope!
Lost "Creative Mojo", if found return to Sue Jones. I'm sorry that I have been away from my computer for so long. I don't know what is wrong with me. I guess I was just out of juice! Hopefully I'm back. I just have not felt like doing anything. I wasn't feeling sick, I just didn't want to do anything creative.
Madison and I made a cake Sunday. I replaced the sugar, and brown sugar with Splenda. They make a brown sugar too. I can't tell a difference. This is a Caramel-Pecan Pound Cake from Paula Deen's Holiday issue. Madison was a great helper. She held the mixer while I added the ingredients and she was a great help with clean-up.
I made this little candy box for a Halloween Treat!
