My scrapbook buddies...... Sarah and Sharon. Sarah gave me a gift certificate to Sassy Cheryl's digital images and Sharon a gift card to AC Moore. Two of my favorite things from two of my favorite people.
I received this beautiful ornament of Rainbow row. The famous houses in Charleston. He also gave me a gift card to Michaels. Yay-- can't wait to go shopping.
Merry Christmas to all.....
Update on the Christmas tree....1 string of lights burned out of the prelit tree!! Oh well....worry about it next Christmas

Mac got a kidney stone, so he wasn't able to come.
We were all lucky because the trainer had to be in Las Vegas for someone or something more important than us....so only one seminar and one cocktail party!
We went to the ICE BAR...and that was what it was, a bar that was made of ice, ice seating, ice ceiling etc etc They served Vodka drinks. They furnished heavy coats, and advised everyone to wear warm clothes and closed toe shoes!! I did not bring closed toe shoes. We were just in there long enough to have our two drinks. Took pictures and were we out of there. When you talk to others about this....it seemed the guests that were from the north managed better in the ice bar better than the Floridians did!
At home....my craft table came and was waiting for me when I got home. The Monday after I got home was my birthday! I received a beautiful ornament from my son. He got it at the Holiday Festival of Lights that was held on James Island, SC, plus other goodies, and a beautiful card. Beautiful roses from my husband. See the picture in the middle on the bottom. There was the a bouquet of flowers, balloon, and a card sitting on my desk from all at WMPH Vacations. What a nice thing for a company to do.
The last picture is the table from our Christmas party at WMPH Vacations.
It was such a nice Christmas party.
Hopefully soon I will have more time to play along
Happy Holidays to all

And the stuff in the condo hasn't been factored in yet! ~ His question.....How did you get all this stuff? Paper is heavy!~

My weeks fly by....I did manage to complete some Halloween treat holders.......if anyone wants the tutorial, let me know I will search, find, and send!
My new home away from home. My new office....loving my new career. It is in Delray Beach, Fl......about 20 minutes drive from West Palm Beach... about the same as I was driving from Little River, to Myrtle Beach.... Reeds Jewelers.....and NO musty mall! And I now have hot water... and that is just the beginning!
the view at break time.....
My husband surprised me Friday night.... he sent me an address, and asked to meet him after work....
He went to school with a guy who owns the Old Key Lime House in Lantana, Fl
We were invited to cruise on his Tiki Boat. It was a nice cruise that took us down the Waterway ....to Boynton Beach, Fl... He invited us to dinner....what a wonderful surprise.
Our turnaround point. Boynton Beach, Fl At the Banana Boat & 2 Georges restaurants.
Today is my Skype day....I get to talk to my brother and his children. We catch up with what we both did all week........
Now that today is my day off......It will involve grocery shopping, taking my husband's lap top for service...and if they say there is no hope or it is not worth it to me to put more money into it....I will be buying a new one!!
Happy Week to all.......
Here is my new challenge card...The theme is Flower Power- I have been very busy with my new career... so I am getting this out just under the wire....last week I got it posted to my Blog, but never got it on Cheryl's Challenge Blog!! Trying to do better this week! My husband's laptop, has issues, so I need to get a new one, or see if it can be repaired. It just might be tired....and needs to be replaced. He is using my scrapbook room laptop.....so I think he would rather not deal with tons of pictures, tutorials and Sassy Cheryl images!! Join in with the fun, the little time you have left for this weeks challenge.

The house is coming along. The appliances and wood floors are done.

What a mess, but it was cleaned up by 5pm. Cinnamon was sitting among my stuff..but didn't seem to make the picture. The top picture is a congratulation on your home card I made for a relative....IKEA tape measure that I got at one of our furniture hunting trips, and Birthday paper..that always comes in handy.
The bottom pictures are the close up of my scrapbooking layouts...some Myrtle Beach memories. I need to finish them before I can start on my Florida pictures..

…where did this week go.....Oh yeah.... Hurricane, the new house, manicure, and pedicure, and packing for my visit to Myrtle Beach....for a while I thought it may be cancelled. Hopefully I will be able to fly into Wilmington....I guess time will tell, I best be ready. Hurricanes are not a new experience for us. A lot less stressful when there is no property involved....this time I worry about Brendan in Isle of palms....and so glad he wasn't in Puntacana. I saw the pictures from there.
Now my pictures- I am working on our coffee table and on the sofa, just finished my Challenge card, and about to start a new scrapbooking project. Take a look at our storm lantern, my hurricane preparedness purchase. Thank goodness I went on Monday because yesterday Walmart had empty shelves. Brendan went to his Walmart, and it was empty also! Anyway….I am prepared!
Heading to the post office…the 24 hr automated post office….to mail our tags to N Myrtle Beach, don't want a problem at the airport…..now that we have Florida tags & am turning my SC ones in (sad ) But it does make me feel that I belong here now.
Well now that hurricane Irene has passed Myrtle Beach, and all our friends are safe, and my flight has not been cancelled.....I will be flying to Wilmington, NC tomorrow.
Missed CK in Charlotte, but my friend Sarah checked it out for me.... Rhonda and my Wilmington scrapbooking friends are there, can't wait to hear all about it.
