Happy Thanksgiving and Crazy Shoppers!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with their family and friends and eats lots of turkey and pumpkin pie!  We have so much to be thankful for, but we are most thankful for the love of our family and friends!

What else besides Scraps will you be buying  (or trying to buy) on Black Friday?  Me, I'd like a new digital camera and a 32 inch LCD TV, but I am not getting up and going shopping at 4am!  It's just not worth it. 

Do you know there were actually people in line last night at Best Buy!  How crazy is that, they are going to miss Thanksgiving with family and friends to get a "deal" on something.  They said they hoped their family and friends brought them dinner. It's not about the food, it's about the time we spend with people we love!  There is no bargain out there that's worth giving that up!

Thank you for all the great comments on my All Boy Mini, I hope you enjoy it!  I get a big smile just knowing that someone comes here and actually reads this! 

There are a few more days left to do some challenges at DSO, there are some great posting bonuses so be sure to check them out! 

And tomorrow, don't forget about my Black Friday Sale!! You save 50% off everything over 99 cents.  Lots of other DSO designers are having sales to so be sure to check out the whole store!

Oops, forgot to put the wooden boy in the zip

Oops, I can't believe I forgot to put the wooden boy in the zip. He's the cutest element and I know that's why you all downloaded it! LOL The zip below has been fixed now but if you downloaded the All Boy Mini before 9:00am est you need to download the zip again or you can get just the "wooden boy" here. LINK EXPIRED

Happy Birthday & Easy Print Photo Cards

First off, I want to wish Phil a very Happy Birthday, I hope you enjoy your special day sweetie!  Thank you for making me the luckiest girl in the world!

The holidays will be here before we know it!  I need to get my Christmas cards ready, so I thought I'd make some cards to print. I came up with these Easy Print Photo Cards - Winter set 1.  They are 6x4 so you can just put your photo under the card, add a little note if you like and print at home or print at your favorite retailer.   Now you have personalized photo holiday cards for just pennies!    You can also use them to make a  brag book to give as gifts. 

They are on sale this week at DSO for only $2.00!


Here's a few other new goodies in the store this week!

Luisa has a cute new kit called Lil Chic


And Kim has another great CU Grab Bag which you will LOVE!

Food Friday

Ok, Bunny started Food Friday so I am following her lead.  Be sure to stop by her blog and check it out her recipe and she will have links to others who joined her for Food Friday!  Bunny shared a wonderful Pecan Pie recipe today from her Gran that sounds wonderful!    I'm gonna have to try that pie!

I love quick, easy and good recipes so I thought I'd share this pumpkin dip.  Now don't make that face, it is really good and great to make to take or just to have when company stops by during the holidays.

Pumpkin Dip

2 - 8 oz. packages cream cheese

1 - 15 oz can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)

3 cups powdered sugar

cinnamon to taste


Microwave cream cheese  on medium heat for 4 minutes to soften.

Mix in pumpkin until creamy and not lumpy. 

Mix in powdered sugar one cup at a time. 

Mix in cinnamon.  Serve warm with ginger snaps or vanilla wafers.  

If refrigerated, just  warm in microwave before serving.

Yeah!!! They won the Super Bowl!!

My grandson Clayton's football team (he's there on the right)  just won their Super Bowl! 

He sure loves football and he is good (if I do say so myself) but that's because he loves it!  It's so nice when a child finds a sport they love.  I think playing sports so good for kids and helps keeps them out of trouble! 

His team was undefeated and this game was a nail biter!  They won 8-O and Clayton scored the 8 points!  Here are some photos taken by sports photographer W. Litmer.   It is so nice of him to provide links for us to post photos to our web sites.






These photos were taken by Bryan.
