Good Bye to 2008. Tonight we cheer in the new year, 2009. Tootsie, Moo and I wish you all a Wondrous New Year. May you be blessed with happiness, good health and prosperity. I want to say thank you to all the wonderful scrappers who have stopped by and given me the caring and support that I needed to get through a difficult, yet busy and learning year.
I am thankful for my family and all my wonderful scrap friends everywhere. I am also very thankful that Moo and Tootsie have made it through another year. This past year, I was blessed with two more great grandchildren. We almost have enough for a softball team, Papa. Wherever you are, may your soul rest in peace.
Now I will seriously have to think about what I would like or need to do in the upcoming new year. I have new programs to learn on my computer and more designing to do. I might even try to get in more exercise. Tootsie and I could certainly use a treadmill or an exercise bike. H-m-m-m. We'll see.
As for tonight, I am staying at home with Tootsie and Uncle Moo. We will share a nice dinner,
and toast in the new year together while we watch the ball drop in Times Square (on TV, of course!).
Before I leave today, I would like to share with you the infamous "ball" that has been trying ever so gracefully to expire. My Tootsie is very persistent, however, and will keep on breathing new life into it as long as she can. That means - new tape every few weeks or so. God bless her. Till tomorrow,
Hugs, Edna B.

I stopped at the supermarket this morning on my way home from work. Guess what? They weren't open yet. Rather than sit in the parking lot for half an hour, I just went on home. Maybe tomorrow I'll have better luck.
Well last night at work, while my little lady was sleeping, I did manage to get quite a lot done on my laptop. I've been trying to finish up my share of the January daily downloads for Magickal Scraps. All I have left to do is the previews, tuck them in folders, and zip them up and send them to storage for links. I feel so much better now.
I'll have a new Chanukka kit for you in a few days, and then will come a new Christmas kit. After that, I have to get busy on some new stuff. But first, the dreaded TAXES! I just need to make sure everything is in one place, and all totalled up. Then I can breath easy until it's time to visit my accountant.
I did finish up a new layout with Snow Raven's new kits, "Christmas Glory 1 & 2," and a matching QP for you, which I will post today. The featured photo is this year's homemade Christmas card. It's an annual family production. I get one every year, and they are just adorable. I sure hope you like it.
Poor Tootsie is going into ball withdrawal. Her beloved, dirty, bald, spitty tennis ball has finally split open almost all the way. Just a few more tosses will finish it off. It makes a funny "splat" sound when it hits the floor, and can't really bounce anymore. We have tried other balls, but she doesn't want them.
Uncle Moo got her a new tennis ball, but even that just wasn't the same. I don't know what she will do when the ball finally falls apart into two pieces. I tried rubbing spit from the old ball on to the new ball, but it didn't work. I wonder if there's a "Balls Anonymous" group around here somewhere. (BAA)
I think I should get ready for bed now. I'm getting slaphappy. Tonight's another work night, and then I'm off for a few days. Woo hoo. (I'm getting excited just thinking about it!) Have a great night.
Hugs, Edna B.

This afternoon, daughter in law, Janet, came over and I told her about a gorgeous shirt on QVC. Did she like it? She loved it. Ring, ring, may I take your order? Just like that, another gift all taken care of. This could become addicting. Actually, I love watching their electronics show. By watching them, I have learned most everything I know about computers and teckie toys. They explain so much and show you exactly what they are talking about. It's not only enjoyable, it's very educational.
Snow Raven is putting out the call for more designers, and designers-to-be. If you already design and want your own store, or if you are just learning to design, this could be perfect for you. I will put up her posters now, and take my leave to go play on my PC. I haven't been on it all day until now. Have a great night.
Hugs, Edna B.

Did I ever tell you about Boystown? Well, many many years, my hubby and I decided that the only way to be able to hang on to his great big old house was to rent out rooms. Obviously, we would take in men only. I'm not nuts enough to want lots of little chickies running in and out of the house with their tiny little tempting outfits on.
So today, I have my hubby's legacy for me -- Miss Edna and the eight little dwarfs and one grumpy old painter. They get the big old house, and I get the tiny little apartment in the back. This odd little group keeps me on my toes, helps to keep the bills paid, and there is never a dull day here. One very nice thing is that they all love Tootsie, and treat her well.
This past week, our dear grumpy old painter put up the Christmas Tree, and then we hung lots of candy canes on it because the eight little dwarfs all have a sweet tooth. Every year, Santa finds our scrawny little tree, and puts lots of goodies under it for everyone.
Today, I want to share a brand new blog with all of you. Miss Audrey has just started a brand new blog. See her link on the right side of my page (Dyani of Virginia), and drop by and visit with her. Don't forget to leave a "hello" for her. http://dyaniofva.blogspot.com/.
Before I sign off for the day, I will post your freebie. It's the QP that I made with Snow Raven's new kits "Merry Xmas" and "Jingle's World." Enjoy, and have a great night.
Hugs, Edna B.

Before I start chatting, I want to let you know that we have a brand new Daily Download Kit, "Festive Season" at Magickal Scraps. So be sure to stop by and take a look. It's a mega kit, and it's gorgeous. http://www.magickalscraps.com/.
We got another fuel delivery today, so now we get to see well how the new furnace does, and if it's an oil gobbler. I'll keep all fingers and toes crossed and hope it's not very thirsty. Although, I must say, the cost isn't as scary as it was last winter. That in itself is a blessing. We'll see.Tonight, Tootsie and I are going to watch some old family holiday movies that we had taped, and now my son has been converting to DVD for me. It should be fun, because some of the people in the movies aren't with us anymore, and it will be nice seeing them again.
I have a photo to share with you, that I took a few days ago. I was looking out a window, and this blue jay saw me and quickly flew off, but not before I snapped his picture.
I really hope Santa has a terrific new lens in his big bag with my name on it. One that takes really fantastic close-ups. Ah, well, I can dream, can't I?
Has anybody tried those cleansing pads that you put on your feet at night, and while you sleep, they drain all the toxins out of your body? While shopping the other day, I saw a box of them so I figured "Why not?" and I bought them. I've only tried them for two nights, but each morning when the pad came off, it was dark gray colored. So I guess it's working. Wouldn't it be nice if they could come up with one that you put on your body at night, and it would eat up all the fat while you snoozed?
I think I better quit while I'm ahead. Have a great night.
Hugs, Edna B.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Audrey! Who'da thunk looking at those adorable golden curls and pretty blue eyes, that today you'd be out tromping through the woods with your trusty gun trying to scrounge up something for dinner. Not only that, you'll mount whatever you catch, (after you've eaten the meat, of course) and use it for a door stop or a corner display.
Not me, I tell you. Each of my four eldest children chose totally different careers than I would have thought of for them, and each did them very well.
Moo just came in tell me to turn on channel 2 (PBS), and watch the Four Aces singing "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing." After 50 years, they still sound good. The program is a special on Love Songs of the 50's & 60's. Oh my, now Bobby Darin is singing "Dream Lover." It's a tape, of course, because he still looks like a teenager. No gray hair and wrinkles like the rest of us.
I have been given two beautiful awards that I would like to share with you. First is the "Treasured Friends Forever" Award. This was given to me by:
Kyra at http://smiekeltje.blogspot.com/ and
Bonnie at http://bonniecarter.blogspot.com/
Please visit their blogs and see all the wonderful things they've created for you. Now I want to pass this on to five other treasured scrapper friends.
Snow Raven at http://silversnowyraven.blogspot.com/
Shannon at http://ladyshannonmemoriesmadeeasy.blogspot.com/
Davonna at http://chroniclesofnani.blogspot.com/
Shawna at http://scrap-stuff-with-psp.blogspot.com/
Anna at http://deliciousscraps.blogspot.com/
The second award, "This Blog Has A Heart," was given to me by Bonnie, aka, The Maltese Scrapper. This is very touching, Bonnie, and I'm feeling pretty special. Thank you. So now I think I will pass this on to the same five people I've already listed above, plus I need to add one more name. My special friend, Kyra at http://smiekeltje.blogspot.com/.
So now, my friends, I'm going to say good night, and finish watching this wonderful program on the TV. Oh lordy, some of these old songs are just so beautiful. Have a great night.
Hugs, Edna B.
