Five Question Friday - 9/10/2010

It is hard to believe that tomorrow it will nine years from the most remembered Sept. 11th in history.  Since then my family members have done multiple tours overseas, and made it safely (if not sanely) back each time.  I thank God each day for their continued safety.  May we remember the attacks in our hearts on this day, and remember the lives lost and families affected both on that day and in the nine years since.  Children have grown up without one or both parents.  Parents lost children.  As a nation we lost our innocent belief that we are safe on home soil.  We learned what hate in the name of religion can feel like when it strikes home.   

If you can read thank a teacher.  If you are reading this in English thank a Soldier.

1. Do you feel guilty spending money on yourself?  Normally, unless it is on fabric, LOL!  It is just hard to justify spending money on myself when I 'know' there are more important things to buy with that money.  Hence, my last haircut was over 6 months ago.  Luckily (or one of the reasons for so few haircuts) curly hair doesn't really show the lack of good haircuts.

2. How well do you know your neighbors?  We know a couple very well.  The others I am determined to get to know better over a plate of holiday cookies.

3. What age are you looking forward to being?  Do I have to look forward to an age?  I am glad to be an adult, but I still look back on my 'carefree' late teenage/young adult years with envy.  Not that I would trade places, but I wish that I had taken advantage of those years of less responsiblity more than I did.

4. Do you get excited when the mail comes? Why?  Of course I do!  You just never know when the mail man (or woman in our case) might bring a special surprise!

5. What is your earliest childhood memory?  I remember the prickly beach in Hawaii that we lived across from when my dad was stationed there.  The pictures show the beach covered by black pine needles.  We moved back to WA State when I was four, and I don't remember anything but those prickles, LOL!

Cindy (I Owe It All To Him) is very much in need of our prayers.  Her husband is still in Intensive Care following a heart attack.  Please take a moment to pray for her and her family.  If you have another moment to spare, please leave her a comment on her blog to let her know.  It is amazing the support we can receive from other cyber-friends when we are in need.  Let us show Cindy that support!

Linking up with this fabulous parties!  Remember to check back for Etsy Tuesday and Treasury Thursday!

  1. Hobbies! Yes, there's a few moments when I don't feel the guilt and my hobby fits that every now and again. Hehe... OR if I know what I am buying will make me money later? I don't feel too guilty about that. Does that count as being for me though?

    SIGH! :)
    Take care!

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href= }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

Christmas is coming...

Working through some Christmas items to list on, my Etsy store. I will be taking custom orders through Dec. 1st.  Also, getting back into the swing of things by participating in two craft fairs this holiday season. 

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…
