    Tye Dye Paper Wrap 

    Here’s what we did on Thanksgiving. it is great time to do fun stuff with children since they are home more. We will use this for wrapping small presents in the coming month. 






    I had my daughter spray the shaving cream and add the food dye. she went slightly overboard while I was getting out the paper from the craft room. So they got to play for awhile in it. after they were done it looked so pretty like a cake. Too bad it just did not turn into one. I had to keep myself from licking the spatula.

    I hope I do not violate any terms of service with this, but I am discouraged with word press today,. hopefully I can do this in 10 minutes. You see word press mad me an offer I couldn’t refuse. I read blogs that were moving from blogger to word press and my blog on blogger was not doing well so i thought I would try this host before I ended up moving like so many after it became much harder to do it. i had a lot of friends on word press with nice blogs also that seemed to like this host. So everyday I have been trying to post.  In a few days I fell in love with this place.

    This is one post I will not share on social sites in case that causes abuse of terms also. Sad and I do not understand it.

    1. I love the photo challenges and daily prompts.
    2. This site seems more personal then blogger.
    3. I like the “like” button,. It is encouraging to get likes which blogger did not offer.
    4. I have gotten feedback, comments and likes on every blog.
    5. This sis a great community. of support.
    6. I love the reader.
    7. I love the blog.
    8. I love the information to read and learn after you set up your blog.

    Probably a few other things I am impressed by.

    also another reason i left blogger : I could not find any follow buttons on anyone’s blog to follow. It was just gone on every blog. I tried to get answers and finally gave up.

    Now -and I have only been on here about a week. I haves followers i want to thank. I have emails from comments and likes. The emails contain blog subject matter so you can follow up on blogs that have supported you by these things. Yesterday I went to a blog I loved. I commented a 2 posts and followed this blog. I went to another following me with  a beautiful picture photo challenge of the week It would not let me post the comment. I wasted and hour changing my password. It kept telling me to re log in over and over. Then my comment would be gone after I did. I had to try the comment over , re log. I tried to just like the article. Not either. I thought maybe it was just that blog. I tried 2 others. Was not budging. Today I tried again. Nope. I tried 2 x and this time do not want to go with my time like yesterday.

    I tried help also yesterday. I finally found 1 post on forum with this same problem. I do not think it was rectified by the posts and the thread was closed. The thread was 3 years ago also. I wasted about an hour on help. No answers. No way to ask about it anymore. I will check out the spam thing as per that one forum thread. I cannot ask any blog since I cannot comment and probably voids the terms and would be real spam. If you are not supposed to comment , why send emails on blogs to respond to?

    I do not want to leave all the things I like above about WP, but I may have to. Thank you if anyone can help with this.  I do know everyone’s time is limited and important.

    Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful 


    My little chicken n a pot………




    You see he was born with a beak deformity which made it hard to eat. The other chickens took his food away since it took him so long to get it down. So I fed him inside. He thought the house was his special coop. My daughter and I saved him from death a few times.

    I am thankful for the year and a half I had my special chicken. This Thanksgiving he was gone. A week prior we, had laughed as he ate dog food out of the dog bowl. The next day in the morning  he was not at the door. He liked to sleep in the tree. We could not get him to go in the coop in the evening. Something got him, but I am so thankful for the time I had him and the laughter he brought..

        Sorry I am so long in replying. my internet acts up a lot. I would be thinking I did something spot on if someone turned back to painting again by my illustration.

    Do I Have to Post on Black Friday? 

    I think not. I will leave that to all the others that do not hate that day to shop- unlike me. I would rather kick back with the kids and craft something or organize something. I really need to clean, but. I would almost rather do Black Friday.

    So today goodbye to the Bad Fryday and the Cumbersome Clean making me mean.

    On to the daily post prompt. Grab nearest book and write about 3rd complete sentence on pg. 82

    So the book that is closest-and this is hilarious since it kind of connects the dots to :”cleaning.”-is “It is too much bother to invite people over to dinner anymore.” Do I have egg on my face? Or pie? The yolk is on me. So to put it this way, this comment is actually partly the truth. Inviting people over that is. I just do not invite people over as I used to because it is a somewhat bother. But I do have excuses:

    1. Crafting has taken over my home.
    2. I live way out in the boonies.
    3. My house truly is not as clean as it used to be since it was too much and I needed some “me” time. At one time it was spotless all the time so an impromptu invite was easy to do.
    4. I planned ahead so much more which did not work with my families do spot on manners and schedules so I had to loosen up.
    5. Consequently now when I think, “We could have invited”, it is too late. I thought this yesterday as I was making food for the feast. I do this almost every week or so.Duh moment. “It would have been nice to invite.”

    So some of the above might contain “It is too much bother to invite people over for dinner anymore.” But I can also blame others. After all, it is extremely annoying when it is also too much bother for others not to show and not even call to let you know. After all my craft materials usually show up., Since my craft room almost contains everything needed and if it does not today, I am still not doing Black Friday Anyway.

    Connect the Dots.

    Even made something on Thanksgiving.
