*********Roberts Night Owl Sale*********************

Well its that time of year and we are all on tight budgets.  If there are some last minute items you still need to complete your Christmas Shopping think about stopping by the Sandy Store to enjoy some of the bargains.  Cricut Fans will not be disappointed-great savings on cartridges & machines.  The Jar Candles will all be on sale and of course its the blowout event for those Christmas Decorations.  The special discount prices are valid December 22 & 23 from the hours of 9PM to Midnight.  So if your feeling a little restless or your up anyways: sewing, baking, wrapping, scrapbooking your fingers to the bone-take a break and pick yourself up something fun for Santa to add to your stocking.  Have a Happy Holiday Season and a Very Merry Christmas.

Who Farkled????

Well ladies this question might take the cake!  I'm laughing now just thinking about how easily the question wound up in conversations had on our December 4-6 Retreat.  As you can see our Birthday Retreat was alot of FUN even with the Farkling.  We decorated party hats, had CAKE & ICE CREAM, watched what else but TWILIGHT (yes again!) scrapbooked, shared gifts and snacked on NEW MOON candy.  We ate, we played, we slept (well not much) and can't wait to come back again.  This clever group even helped me realize we have a four day weekend coming up that would be perfect for our next Scrapbooking Getaway.  Thank you for the wonderful Birthday Gifts-you ladies were so THOUGHTFUL and FUN.  As you can see there were 5 of us with December Birthdays and we enjoyed sharing the Party together.  Everyone got to take home a shirtless Edward (even Grandma thought he was cute). and although lots of our homes received a few inches of SNOW we had no trouble getting in & out of Eureka.  I have always liked having a December Birthday and you ladies: Colleen, Catherine, Sara, Joyce, LeAnn, Ruth, Jennifer, Wendy, Grandma & Deanne made it extra special this year.   Thanks again......

New Projects

This year has flown by so fast I can hardly believe we are getting ready for Christmas already!!!  I haven't had a lot time to create and design this year.   With working at Roberts, getting this Retreat business off and running, teaching and designing for store events its been a little crazy.  But my first love will always be playing with paper and coming up with new projects & designs.  I have a few pictured here that should be pretty easy to duplicate.  The two cards are from my Layering Workshop were we talked about how to organize your Cricut mat for layering and all of the different styles of layering the different Cricut cartridges contain.  Hope you like the cards I used Mickey & Friends cartridge to get Goofy (I put an elf hat from Paper Doll Dress Up to make him more festive.)  The Tree is from the Christmas Noel cartridge (The T in Greetings looks like an F but that's only because the dot for the I is attached.)  The page layouts are works in progress but I thought they would be pretty simple to duplicate.  The gingerbread housecame from the My Community Cartridge.  This layout still needs a Title-I'm open to suggestions????  My husband's choice is Walking in a Winter Wonderland (I like it but it seems to long to Cricut cut)  My Christmas mini album is made of Chipboard and is from a Class I taught last year.  I have tons of supplies left so I may do another class on this one in the future.  I am still working on my NEW MOON album and will post pictures as soon as its finished.  I will also post pictures of my "Cards in a Box" from this years Holiday Boutique next week.  I will sell these up thru Christmas for $5.00 a set.  My snowman head is also in progress and will be a class in January's Retreat.  I will also be selling those to anyone wanting one in January.  Hope we can all find some time to work on a fun project this holiday. I really believe the homemade gifts are the best.    I am looking forward to the holidays this year I hope all of you are as well.

November 13-15 Retreat

WOW-This retreat was so MEMORABLE!  What a Fantastic Group of Ladies I had the pleasure of getting to know this weekend.  This was our largest group 13 of us in Total.  Many of these ladies teach at West Valley Elementary School and what a FUN bunch they are.  Our school system is in good shape if these ladies are any indication of the dedication teachers have today.  They spent this weekend and I'm sure many of there weekdays thinking about and planning for their students.  This very talented group of ladies produced many, many beautiful pages, completed some calendar kits, and even learned my never-ending card fold in record time.  They also started a new TREND-rather than freeze the bra of the first person to go to bed, or toilet paper the desk of the first person to take a nap they decided to Serenade the last person awake with a boisterous rendition of Where are you Christmas (Nice).  I also want to thank all of them for being so understanding & patient with me.  I ended up getting sick just before the Retreat and had my energy level just bottom out on Saturday-this fantastic group of ladies proved to be great care-givers and I want to especially Thank Tricia for all the wonderful tea.  I also want to thank my good friend Anne who made sure everything ran smoothly and shared her teaching talents with the group making the Twilight Albums. 
This Retreat, like many of the others leaves me with a feeling of awe and inspiration.  In the quiet moments when we get to share our STORIES our lifes ADVENTURES our STRUGGLES I am amazed what we as women must sometimes endure.  I feel really blessed to have this avenue to make new acquaintences as well as life long friends.  The ladies that have attended all of my past Retreats have really enriched my life-I sincerely thank each and every one of you for your support of this endeavor.
Cassie, Cherie, Tammy, Cheryl, Maria, Tricia V, Kerry, Brenda, Dianne, Joan, Tricia & Anne It was truly a pleasure-Thank you for attending our first Retreat with snowfall  It was truly memorable.
A Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Cricut Design Studio Update

Hi Ladies-I had a friend call this week and let me know she had trouble loading her CDS update to her computer.  She went thru alot of heartache to finally resolve the problem with Cricut.  I am posting some instructions here in the hopes that some of you will not have to spend hours trying to get your updates done.  Thank you Joyce for calling attention to this problem your struggles will help others avoid the same issue.

Cricut Design Studio Update

If your firmware update is not working do the following:

1. Go to start

2. My computer

3. C drive

4. Program files

5. Cricut Software folder

6. Cricut Design Studio

7. Firmware releases

8. Click on the file Cricut_v2_34.enc , then right click and add an a after the 34. So your file should read Cricut_v2_34a.enc.

9. Then click on the file Cricut_v2_34b.enc, then right click and just delete the b. So your file should read Cricut_v2_34.enc.

10. Go to your design studio and do your firmware update.

11. When your firmware update is done and you turn on your Cricut it should say version 2.34.

My thanks to Jennifer Boyd from the South Jordan Roberts for getting the instructions together in such a concise easy to understand format.  Hope this helps anyone having trouble with their Cricut Update.  Happy Cutting!!!

Free Halloween Template

Martha Stewart had a free template for a treat box I thought I would share with you.  You can get the small paper mache boxes at Roberts or any craft store.  You should be able to open the site with the link below.
Happy Halloween.

Date Night

With six kids its not often that my Husband and I get to go out on a Date Night.  This week one of my kids helped us have a Date Night to La Caille resteraunt.  My daughter is taking a Food and Nutrition class at the Junior High and was able to get discount dinner reservations to La Caille for the three of us.  This Etiquette Dinner is a fun way for the kids to practice all of the information they have been studying on table manners and table placement. I enjoyed getting dressed up for the occassion but I loved seeing my holey t-shirt wearing husband in a suit even better.  I think he cleans up rather nicely.  My daughter looked beautiful and much too grown up for my liking.  The food was spectacular of course, but even more then the fancy meal I just enjoyed time with two of my favorite people.  I also made some mental notes on a couple of home decor styles I want to try.  You think my husband will mind if I paint faux bricks on the dining room walls??? 

October 23-25 Retreat

Thank you Ladies for a wonderful Retreat.  I am going to have to dub this group the Worker Bees.  When we added up all of the pages there were a couple of you around 20 pages completed this Retreat-AMAZING!!  We also had our first digital scrapbooker attend-your pages were Fantastic Patty.  Along with the Sandra Bullock movie marathon(who doesn't love Hocus Pocus & The Proposal);  we had Jaime surprise us ALL with shall we say white fluffy stuff everywhere (no I don't mean SNOW).  The sunset was incredible-the rain & sleet made us glad we were inside and the Sunshine Sunday morning made us appreciate the beautiful surroundings.  We even enjoyed a very special visitor-the local deer population decided to trot right up to the road by the Inn.  I enjoyed laughin' and scrappin' with all of you:  Alease, Arnell, Barbara, Vicki, Patty, Grandma, Deanne, Colleen and Sara your amazing women and it was my pleasure to get to know you better.

Fall Fun at Four.....

My little four year old Kylee loved the Hay Maze & Pumpkin Patch done by Engh Gardens in Sandy.   She picked up a little pumpkin and as I grabbed my camera said "This one's little like me".   I  tell you this was definitely an "Awww" moment.  I just love this age-everything is so exciting & fun.  I love that at four years old she takes time to figure STUFF out and then explain it to me.  I rememer how excited she was this year to tell me that her Grandma was actually Dad's Mom.  What a discovery!  I'm so glad she clued me in.  What would I do without my little helper making life so clear?   I also love her enthusiasm for LIFE.  When she finally made it to the end of the hay maze she jumped for joy shouting I Did It!  Wouldn't life be so much easier if we could all share the things we have figured out with others???  Wouldn't it be a happier place if we could always share our Joys???  I can't wait to Scrapbook Kylee's Fall Fun!

Never too old to TP!

Here's what happens if you're the first to go to sleep (or just take a nap in this case) at one of our Retreats.  Everyone decides your never too old to get TP'd.  This time honored tradition of messing up the home or in this case scrap table of the offendee is captured here in this wonderful picture. Ladies I think this is soooo much better than the other option of Bra Freezing!!!!  By far the best part is hearing everyone say "pass the toilet paper"whenever someone had a goopy mess to clean up-its so nice to share with friends (awww).  Who says you can't recycle gently used toilet paper???  So as you can see another fun trip to Eureka.  This weekends winner of our Acrylic Block Challenge Project was Angie-do you think she had some inside help from her little girl (Angie is 8 months along and was still willing to join us in some scrap fun). Thank you ladies for some Great Memories.  You make each Retreat special & FUN!!!!!

This is the Card I made this Month for my Card Club.  I used some watercolor pencils and a water brush to color in the stamped image.  Makes a fast and easy way to watercolor.  Inside the card it says:  Just Flying by with a Halloween Hi!  A simple card is always great when you have to make multiples.  I am off to another Retreat this weekend-I will post some of this weekends projects & pages tomorrow.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I keep hearing the statistics about Breast Cancer & I tell you I am just BLOWN AWAY.  The one most commonly heard is that every single person on the planet either has had breast cancer or knows someone that has had breast cancer.  Oh my Gosh-this is just too many women!!!!  So if YOU are a breast cancer Patient or Survivor my heart and prayers are with you.  At this moment in time I have a sister in law and an Aunt that were diagnosed with breast cancer.  My Sister in Law was only 36 and pregnant when she found out.  The doctors had to deliver her baby boy early so she could begin treatment and this amazing women went thru treatment, kept working and raising her two older girls and cared for her newborn baby.  My Aunt had a lumpectomy 10 years ago, and just this year during a routine mamography she found out the cancer was back & had to undergo a full mastectomy.  I am just at awe at what a women can go thru & just how strong she can be when she is determined.  My thoughts and prayers are with the hundrends & thousands of women out there trying to survive.  It is with these ladies in mind that I created a design for this years Ladies Night Out event I am including a picture for any out there that may want to duplicate this card for their loved one.  I know the lesson that I take away from these amazingly strong women battling this disease is HOPE.  We must HOPE for a positive outcome, we must HOPE for a cure, we must HOPE our challenges and struggles will educate the next generation.

Halloween Explosion Box

Halloween Explosion Box that also works as a nested set of boxes.  These fun boxes can be made for any holiday or special event and are so much fun to give as gifts.
