For a cause! SHOPPING SALE!

Sep 19, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: Uncategorized

Christine from All That Scraps posted THIS info here 

My daughter Savannah brought a note home from school today. Her teacher from last year was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Her teacher this year will be walking in the Chattanooga Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure on September 28th. Her team needs to raise money for this worthy cause.

We at All That Scraps want to give to this worthy cause, as I am sure you do to. We are going to donate 5% of all orders placed today (9/18) and tomorrow (9/19). All items count towards the 5%.

Shop at

Then Kim has posted some other info here called Cammi’s Cause. Be sure to read it.

Info from Kim’s blog:

Cammie is having a HUGE blog candy extravaganza in honor of National Alzheimer’s Day on Sept 21st. Be sure to check it out!

I thought I’d like to help raise some funds as well in support of the cause, so what I’ve decided to do is two-fold: 1) Starting tomorrow, I am offering a 10% discount on ALL stamps on the site. Use the coupon code Cammie at checkout to receive 10% off all the stamps in your shopping cart. (It won’t discount your other merchandise, just stamps.) The coupon code will run from Wednesday, Sept 17th to Sunday, Sept 21st. 2) I will donate 10% of ALL proceeds (including money spent on other items on the site) to the National Alzheimer’s AssociationFYI – The discount applies only to retail orders…

I would also invite you to listen to a song that I have played hundreds of times since my Dad passed, and even though it’s written from a female perspective, it really gets to the heart of what loving someone with a memory condition means.  It’s called Silent House and there are two artists versions, one by Crowded House and one by Dixie Chicks, both are wonderful and I wholeheartedly encourage you to take a listen.  

To shop-


I also have somethng that I am contributing to Cammie’s blog candy. I JUST mailed it out though. I’ll share it this week.

Thanks for checkin in.

OK so this post is SUPER late :C

I forgot about a FUN read! People loved this post last year. I figure I have many new reader’s whom may not have seen it. People always ask how I seem to “do it all”, well here are some fun tips 😀 Enjoy! I even put it in it’s own category on my sidebar, for easy future reference!

I am having some issues with my blog font, size and everything. I have NO IDEA what is going on! GRR!!!

Upon trying to figure stuff out I found the way to change the color! Don’t worry every post won’t be pink now, although it IS tempting me 😀

I am happy to say I am feeling 100% better, and things are going great. I am back in HAPPY mode. Positive mode. No more whining. OK well ONE more bit of whining. I am a bit worried about the girls parties-tomorrow is the last day for RSVP’s for Alexa and I only have 3 people so far :C How does this RSVP thing happen every year?! Seriously people never respond!

Then, poor Amber, I have 3 girls definitely NOT coming due to soccer games, and only like 2 coming so far. I know I would rather go to a fun Spa party than a soccer game ANY day! Its only ONE game! Jay says that is not a “team” attitude. Oh well! LOL! Im not a sports person anyway! LOL! I guess its just hard putting so much into a party to have people not pick up a phone. My point-if you get invited to a party please don’t wait till last minute to RSVP!

We have a full weekend planned and it should be so much fun. We are suppose to go to Canobie Lake Park tomorrow, but its suppose to be like 60 degrees! I am not going on a bunch of rides that are windy when its FREEZING out! Let’s hope it warms up a bit. Its jay’s company party so I don’t want to be a downer, but I don’t want us all FREEZING either. THAT is not fun. Plus the kids get the cold weather continuous runny nose-blech!

I made Jay turn the heat up today to 70. The house was freezing this morning. Fall is here. He didn’t want to turn on the heat but I assured him is he wanted to have a “nice” weekend, he would be smart, and turn on the heat, otherwise HE would be the one freezing (wink! LOL!). So he promptly cranked it up and I am nice and toasty warm now 😀

OK onto business today!


 Daisy had her birthday on Tuesday September 16th!

I had to make her a card! I used an image from Stamping Bella called Butch & Mimi. I think Mimi is Daisy in cartoon version 😀 I chose what I thought was some fun colors that suit Daisy and her personality (yes dogs DO have personalities!). I decided Daisy needed a balloon, so I punched a circle, then stamped a paw image from the Dog Plate #1 set

I can’t believe she is one! Many have been asking for updates and photos, so I hope today gives you a

little chuckle. The photos I have to share were taken ON her birthday. She was definitely up for some


First she ate Amber’s Spaghetti O’s & meatballs off the table-you will see her nice red face? There is no hiding that Daisy!!

 Then she was a little quiet. Just like a child, that is NOT a good thing!

I go to find her, and she in the mud porch, chewing SOMETHING………….


Oh yes, of course! Its my bench!

She hops right up, and gives me this look like…………


Seriously!! How can something THIS cute, be THAT naughty!! She is such a chewer! Gosh! Nothing is safe.

Its hard to get mad at her though.

Then she begins gnawing on my doorway! Yes, right in front of me! I reprimand her, and she just looks up at me like this


Man! If she were a kid she’d be in big trouble! LOL! She is my fur-baby, and has me just wrapped around her naughty little paw!

Well that is it for me today. I also have a birthday party to go to this weekend, so I hope to get what I need done for that. Don’t forget tomorrow is the Saturday Sketch! I hope you get to check back in and play along 😀 Its another fun one.
