In the meantime , we have created a Yahoo Group for you all. Not only will you receive updates and announcements, but you will receive them at least 24 hours before they are posted to my blog or other scrapbook websites.

So, you can get a jump on when table rentals and ticket sale registration opens.

Right now the group is closed to public posts. All messages will be coming from the group moderators.

As the date of the flea market gets closer, we will open up the group to all
posts from members. So, we can talk about everything that has to do with the flea market and count down to when it begins...

Snow Snow Snow....

We got hit again! The weather people were calling for only a light dusting to 2 inches in our area...

So, I went to a crop 2 hours away, James went out with his friends for the night and the kids were at Grandma's house (an hour away).

Well, they were wrong! Wayyyy Wrong!

I got to the crop at 8 am and I had to leave at 1pm because there was about 4 inches on the ground.

I left and it took me 4 hours to get home. The roads were a nightmare. Tractor trailers jackknifed, cars abandoned, other cars turned around with busted front ends, and cars stuck in the medians. It was ugly!

James picked up the kids at 2:30 pm. He got home 15 minutes after I did. he was coming from the other direction. He said the roads were just as bad.

We were all so happy to be home. And safe.

And we got about 6 inches yesterday. Not a dusting. So, thanks Mr. Weatherman! For being so...uhh... accurate... {eye roll}...

Well, gotta run! Need to go and shovel some snow.

Ok not new, but redesigned! Isn't is beautiful? I see your heads nodding .... Excellent!

My Blog Makeover was done by a very wonderful and talented Kristina Proffitt! And she did it so quickly. One day my blog was boring..the next Ka-Blowwee! Perfection!

Kristina and her partner Crystal Wilkerson have created templates for your blog that are just so bright and inspirational! The name of her business is Blog Designs by Two Happy Mommas. You need to check them out! You will not be disappointed!

Kristina even redid my Scrapbook Resume Blog. I cannot tell you how happy I am with her work! And she is a pleasure to work with. Y'all know how difficult I can be sometimes! ;)

As you all know, I am quite the bad blogger. I never knew why, but I think it was because my blog was so..well....blech! Boring! Dull!

Not anymore! I cannot tell you how many times I have come to my blog today. I love it! So, I had to share it all with you! And I am sure you will see a lot more of me now too!
