Notebook and matching pen...

I love these little notebooks. They are so easy to make and the matching RSVP pen takes about a minute! This was made with SU Designer paper and the new level three SU Hostess set called Time Well Spent.

We had a wonderful time at book club this past week. We laughed all night long. Not even going to try to explain how much fun we had as you really had to be there to understand how much fun we had.

This is a fun group of ladies and I enjoy the time I spend with them. Imagine a book club that gets sixteen women every month! It must e fun!

Here's a picture of me laughing at my holiday grab bag gift. You had to be there to understand why this was so funny.

Here is me with my Holiday grab bag ..... you had to be there to understand why this was so funny!

Only 70 something more hits until I have 5000 hits on this blog...amazing. I will have to do something special when it hits 5000.

Another Diane Original....

Great day yesterday. Had a wonderful time at Jeanne's luncheon at the casino. Congratulations again to Jeanne on her retirement. I got home just in time (or just a little late) for my last jewelry class of session two. Here is what I made.

Thanks Julie for another great night!

Tonight is book club...I have about an hour more I need to sit down and finish the book. Looking forward to a fun night at book club. Tonight is our Holiday party which is always fun!

High Score - 216!

It was exciting! I told Kerry I was going to bowl a 200 when I left the house but I tell her that every week. I never actually bowl a 200. Tonight was different, I actually bowled over 200 AND I also got a 7-9 split. All in all it was a great night at bowling.

Suzanne, on our team, also bowled her highest game tonight!

I hope my luck continues tomorrow at the casino!

Happy Monday....

Another great week ahead. Here's what I worked on this weekend. I think I am getting better at making the stationery/note cards. Here are some note cards.

I made this one for a friend I sit with while we wait for our daughters to finish voice class. She has been knitting while we talk and made me a very nice (and warm) green scarf (I'm wearing it in the hiking photo). We both love green. I made her the following note cards. I hope she likes them.

This is how I packaged them.

Tomorrow I am going to the casino for a friends retirement luncheon. I made these for her.

Jeanne, I hope you like these!

And this is how I packaged this set.

Busy week ahead. Besides work, I have bowling tonight, tomorrow all day at the casino and tomorrow night at jewelry class. It's good to be busy.

Survived the hike...

We met at 9:30 a.m. and it was cold and windy. Seven of us hiked the beautiful state park called Lovers' Leap. It was a nice morning. When the hike was almost done we enjoyed some bagels. I would definately do it again.

Lovers' Leap is a beautiful state park and like most Lovers' Leaps across the U.S. (and there are many) there is Legend. According to local legend, this was the spot where a young Native American girl, distraught over love, threw herself in o the rushing water below

Here's some photo's of the scenery.

Now going shopping! Enjoy the weekend everyone.
