You made do it!!!



I have received so many emails from procrastinators that after some good old arm twisting I decided to offer some gift certificates just for camera straps and just through December. 
If you are a self admitted procrastinator, this is for you!!! CHEERS!!!!

Holiday closing & Whisky

I decided to close the store for the Holidays because my husband will be home and our family is coming to visit. The original dates where from 22nd to the 29th. Unfortunately TODAY I'm so sick. I decided to close today. I'm very sorry but I have to. There is no way I can catch up.
I have been delaying shipments because dear USPS has been having issues all week. Tonight I'm printing lots of labels again and hopefully there will be no issues on Monday so I can send out what was ordered today.
I'm very sorry if I have inconvenienced anyone with this change of plans but there is really not much I can do.
On a sweet note. This little doggie on the picture is our little 1 year old rescued Russell Terrier. Someone (not a very nice person) kicked her out of the only home she's ever known and she bounced from house to house for a few weeks. We have a good yard and loving kids so we decided to adopt her. We already have a teacup Chihuahua and they get along very well. Her name is now Whisky. Our Chihuahua's name is Tequila. HA!!!


I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, and everything else we celebrate. I really wish the best for all of you.

Gabi

Toys for Tots.... and free stuff!

Hello everyone. I wanted to let you know that You Can Make This is on this great mission again.
"Twirls for girls" is a campaign in conjunction with the "Toys For Tots" program. They are very happy to have people like you sewing little twirl skirts for the dolls that are donated each year. This is the second year and last year was incredibly successful. When your donation is paired with the official donation form they will know that those skirts are to be matched up with the donated dolls. 
The twirl skirt pattern is available FREE at You Can Make This along with the submission form. Download it today, make some little skirts to donate and some to for your little girls too.




They also have a special section where proceeds from those ebooks go to various charities. Check the out here, they are all very cute and easy to make.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Get a load of this.

I really don't know who to give credit to for the following images, but hands down, they are so clever. Photoshop Ninjas!!!
Windows Vista re-start button for those who don't use Mac...LOL
No offense but I jumped off the PC boat and I haven't looked back.
Built in umbrella, handicap mode, photoshop touchscreen, and dual mounts for Nikon and Canon. Can't we all just get along?

The only features missing on this camera are the GPS and Iphone connection.

Disney Trip with Daddy

Daddy was able to take a short break from his Korea deployment and we decided to go away to Disney and celebrate Oli's Birthday.
We drove up to Mouseville and we got there craving some good BBQ. Since we are no longer in Oklahoma, where you can get the REAL THING we settled for Sonny's BBQ.
Day 1 off to dinner.....
I hate it when he does this, I feel like a punch in my stomach as I gasp!

Summer 2008 in pictures

Every summer we go back to California to spend time with our family and friends.... mostly my college friends. We take sooooooo many pictures is hard to keep up. Here is our little vacation in more pictures and less typing.

First, I had to get a new antenna ball. Then we ate at in-n-out pretty much everyday.

We went to the San Diego Zoo, Sea World...again..... We took a quick trip to Mexico, where, in my opinion is the hottest place on earth. See for yourself!!!
For those who like to know these things, most of the pictures where taken with a 5D and 35L lens. Some "obvious" shots where takes by the kids with a little powershot SD 1100.
