Mini Mania has finally struck again!
Late, but keeping on track seems to get harder all the time!
Do you think you can find the location of the secret room? See if you know where it is!
Paper revitalization...it's a re-use, recycle, repurpose kind of thing. If they can do it to neighborhoods, why not this?
Help! I need your nominations!
I have to say that sometimes I get really frustrated with myself when I make dumb mistakes. What makes me even MADDER is when I can’t figure out what I did wrong…mad or crazy, which can be synonymous. So I typed out almost an entire post, including photos, had to leave for a few minutes, which turned into a few hours and when I came back…I couldn’t find it. And the title was out of my head…which had been super cute. Then I remembered that I had centered the whole blog around the word “cute”…beats me if I can remember a single sentence. But it’s been a long week and I’m only to Wednesday and I need to move on to the next task at hand…or at least to attack the list. Last week I got a wonderful box full of Cosmo Cricket’s new line, DeLovely, in the mail. I love the brilliant colors – the shades of green, turquoise, yellow and bright pink are some of my favorites colors ever and the combinations make me happy.

That has shortened the diagnostic time drastically. But there are times when it isn’t a good time to call him for assistance…like 3 o’clock in the morning when I can’t go back to sleep! Just after shutting down my computer last night, a thought came to me of how to get an image header on this blog. As you can see, I was successful! Jake will be so proud! Not to say it was easy. Nothing wrong with the typepad program, just the ineptitude of the user! But one thing I have learned. When you figure it out for yourself, it gives you confidence to try and solve more problems by yourself. That is how the learning process goes. I remember when Jacob got the first computer in the house. All I wanted to use it for was making invitations and fliers. It was easier for Jacob to do it for me than to
