  • Hey Elsie, I’m still up too, but heading off to bed after this. I sooo wish i could just hop in my vehicle and drive over to the party tonight.

    I missed the chat tonight. I was making a huge pan of lasagna and then we watched a movie. Lakeview Tarrace with Samual Jackson, I think thats what it was called.

    I have been soooo inspired by the class, and by everyones blogs. I’ve been doing other projects on the side. And am in hopes of being able to work on my Color me Happy book tomorrow. I’ve got the front cover done, thats about it. And the other girls thought they were behind. LOL! My time off of work from recovery is coming to an end after Sunday so I’d better use my time wisely. And get as much done as I can. Talk to you soon!! Have fun tonight at your party! Angela

  • I hope you gals have a great time. 🙂 For those of us who can’t get to the classes can we purchase the supplies online?

  • Wow looks like super dooper fun. Can’t wait to see ya in June/July when I visit. Woo.

    I’ll be there in spirit.

    Oh btw, Mandy Natalini and her daughters sent me a unicorn kit. HOW FUN!! Love the Gocco print. 🙂

  • 日本電機工業会(JEMA)が26日発表した白物家電の2月の国内出荷額は前年同月比3.7%増の1573億円で、昨年6月以来のプラスとなった。冷蔵庫が16.0%増の251億円、洗濯機が14.3%増の237億円と大きく伸び、エアコンも0.5%増の403億円と堅調だった。東日本大震災後の節電意識の高まりを追い風に、省エネ性能の優れた製品への買い替えが進んだ。昨年7月以降は記録的な猛暑と家電エコポイント制度の特需の反動で前年割れが続いたが、2011年4~9月期は15年ぶりの高水準を維持している。
