Video Making Today

Made a few videos today.   Now the big job of editing them.  I did miss my camera person as Miegan was busy with friends. Today was Kayla's first day of working and then she went out with friends to bowl.  Waiting patiently so I can hear all about her first day on the job. Hope she gets home soon.  I am tired.

Day in Blacksburg

Started early for the Orientation session. gave a lot of information about Virginia Tech.  Was nice.  Weather was a little not so nice.  We had flurries and cold.  Not as cold as Cheyenne and not as windy or I thought, though locals said it was windy, 25 miles per hour just a slight breeze.  After the Orientation we had about 1 15  before we headed over to the Engineering School talk so went to Financial Aid.  They were very helpful.  Then to Engineering was a great talk and told all about the different engineering opportunities.  We then went to one of the cafeterias and eat at Qdoba.  Sure was a different experience than my cafeteria days.  Went on a walking tour of campus. Only took about an hour and we took a few tours of some buildings.  Looked at a dorm room, looked like mine.  Then went back to hotel and took a nap.  Woke up and we toured the town of Blacksburg about 10 minutes by car and we got lost. I like the small community but Kayla wants a little bigger area. More hunting.




Tips & Techniques Tuesday March 26

Water Coloring for Tips and Techniques Tuesday.  Isn't it great, I love water coloring.



Happy Stamping.

I am all packed now Kayla needs to

OK sharing a suitcase with Meigan was OK. At least we could find everything and it was neat.  Well Kayla and I are heading to Blacksburg VA to visit Virginia Tech and we have decided to share a suitcase.  Of course she wanted the suitcase all to herself but I thought we could fit into one large case, we shall see. I am packed and have about a 1/3 of the suitcase.  She said that she has to bring all her homework books since she hasn't done homework in the last 3 days and has a bunch to do on the trip.  I am looking forward to the trip (except for the suitcase portion of it).  Never been to Blacksburg and here it is very nice.  I did check the weather hoping that we would have some warm weather but no.  Monday and Tuesday they are calling for snow.  So we leave just as the snow leaves and arrive there with the snow.  I hope we have at least one nice day.  I intend to do some walking around campus.

I will post some photos and videos while we are there.  I hope Kayla and I both survive and one of us doesn't end up in the hospital or jail.

Check back for nightly updates.

Swimming and the Prom Dress the Story of Today

Meigan had another swim meet today.  She was in the 100 and 50 meter free style and the Freestyle relay.  She did well in the 50 and took over 3 seconds off her time.  She also swam the first time for the 100 meter and boy you could see she was tired but she kept right on doing it and came in at 1:40.
Here Meigan is getting ready to go on the 100 Meter Free style.
And there she goes.  Got a great start.


Here she is in the First turn

Even though she is tired she is still going strong.  I love how she never quits.
Then Kayla hasn't been feeling well lately and has just started feeling better.  She went to the meet with us and enjoyed herself.  When we came home she tried on her Prom Dress and I really wanted to cry she was so beautiful.

 I am really proud of both of my girls today.

What a day.

OK today was a busy day.  Dropped Kayla off at school and she was not feeling good, so was expecting a call.  Went to my exercise class and really worked hard today. Had my Techniques class and did  Triple Layer Stamping
It was fun and we made a bunch of cards. I will get some pictures up in a few days.

Then just as we were breaking up Kayla called to come pick her up.  Rushed to get her and then back home to throw the chicken in the crock pot and then back to school because she forgot her computer and needed it for homework.  Kayla slept most of the afternoon.  Her prom dress was delivered so had to take care of that.  Then I had a webinar to attend and files to get ready for me Finance Council meeting this evening.  Pick up Meigan from swim practice race home so she can change and get to symphony then I had to go to my finance meeting and then home to eat supper around 9 PM. Boy was it a a busy day.

What did you do today?

WOW My Digital studio is Dropping price

Take a look at this.

If you have been putting off getting My Digital Studio you shouldn't any more.  Price is now $19.95.

  1. We’re changing the name of the software to MDS. Now, you might be asking yourself, didn’t it just change to MDS 2 last year? Yep, it sure did.
  2. We’re lowering the price! What has been known as MDS 2+ is now $19.95 US/$24.95 CAN and will be called . . . yes, you guessed it, MDS. It’s the same great software and content at a fantastic new price.
  3. Coming soon: all of you who have been holding onto the original My Digital Studio software will be able to upgrade for FREE. We’ll let you know as soon as it is available. (Can we get a woot, woot?)

A few other things to know.

Other stuff you may want to know:
  • We will still offer a free 30-day trial version of the MDS software for anyone who had not previously tried the MDS 2 Trial.
  • The original My Digital Studio software (not the product line) is going away, including support for it. The free upgrade will be available soon!  
  • MDS 2 (the software that didn’t have much content) is going away.
  • You can still get the software on a disc (item 130647) or as a download (item 130646). Just keep in mind the disc will say MDS 2+ on it because it will take us awhile to switch everything out.
Share your excitement below. (Virtual high-fives all around.)
We understand that when a price changes after you have made a recent purchase it can be frustrating. If you purchased the software at the old price from March 1 to March 17, 2013, the following will be added to your Download Manager by Wednesday, March 20:

Swimming is the name of the game for Meigan

Meigan is our adventurer.  She likes to try new things.  You would never know it as she hates change and must know what is happening every second before it happens or she gets upset, but she will try anything to eat and now she is trying different sports.

You know she loves her Viola and that is the highlight of her day is to practice.  She loves her dance.  She has now found a new love.  In 5th and 6th grade she tried basketball and volley ball. this year in 7th grade she was on the volleyball team which she enjoyed and was pretty good at.  But she is now beaming every day at 4:30 when I pick her up from swim practice.  She took a few swim lessons when she was young nothing more than we were confident she wouldn't drown at birthday parties, nothing serious.  Well she wanted a winter sport but didn't want to do basketball or track.  So in came swimming, never been swimming for competition or even laps.  Doesn't know all the strokes but she is now a fish and loves it.  She competes in 50 yard free style and 50 yard backstroke along with a 200 freestyle relay.  Yesterday was her second meet and she dropped 2 seconds off her freestyle and I never seen her smile so big.  I think this will be her sport.

Spring is in the Air. Sneak Peek Stamp Set

 Get your first peek at the 2013-2014 annual catalog with this stamp set.  A Round Array.

You can buy it now in a bundle with the coordinating 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch for 15% off at $23.95 or purchase it alone for $14.95.  I am going to use it for some magnets and bottle cap jewelry. Click the on line shopping button and choose me as your Demonstrator.
