Another SCS Meet-Up



So, I have had the honoor of meeting two folks that I "talk" to on SCS this month. I was FINALLY able to meet Vivian! Her parents live just south of me so she and her mom came up to meet me and walk around Old New Castle.

Old New Castle is the oldest city in Delaware. It's an adorable little town with very old, brick homes and quaint stores. It a very charming place. I love to stroll through the town, taking pictures - especially some of the unique and colorful doors!

We shopped at the White Swan Rubber Stamps, and then meandered down to the bead store.

By the time we were done shopping, Aida was telling us that "lunch" was about to turn into "dinner", so we headed down to Jessop's Tavern for a bite to eat.

We digested our food and chatted while we strolled through a very old grave yard just outside of a historical church. Several of the tombstones had lengthy inscriptions! I read one (which was more than a paragraph long) aloud and Vivian warned me that I was probably going to be haunted by the woman for reading it with a bit of a mocking tone.

I have felt an odd chill or two since.....

Anyway, I had so much fun finally meeting Vivian. She's one of the funnest people I know on SCS. After meeting her mom, I can see where she aquired some of her sense of humor, because her mom is a hoot as well.

A couple more shots. One of the three of us waiting for our meal, and one of her mom!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
HOP START
Oh, guess what else is going on...

Each page has a little journal page insert: 

This journal was made from lots of recycled stuff, including...wait for it....
Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

Cold Heartless Prank

I get a call this afternoon at work from "a friend" of my daughter's. He said that my daughter had been in a serious accident --> hit by a car. He told me that she had a compound fracture and was being taken to a hospital (he told me the name of the hospital). I asked a few more questions as my panic increased to almost hysteria. I had started to cry and was shaking pretty badly

My daughter lives across the country - literally. I was so frightened that something had happened and she was injured and well, you know....all sorts of terrible things started running through my head.

So, in a scurry, a few of my colleagues here at work searched Google and found the number for the hospital ER and the State Police for me. What a blessing they were.

The ER said that she hadn't arrived yet. They also said that they hadn't received any "codes", meaning, that at least they were not having an emergency brought in that was life threatening. The emergency room sugge…
