June 15

blog list April Love my Nook!

Question? What’s your favorite gadget?

2012

The apps I have downloaded on my phone. Love them. Keep track of things, organize, and budget. Awesome! I use these more than I call or text on my phone.

2013

I guess I was gadget-out! ;(

2014

My favorite would be my NOOK! I love it! I love it for all the apps. I love it for reading new author books that I would not have been able to read otherwise. 🙂

Question? What makes you cynical?

2012

Fake friends. Especially when they are only out for themselves. Makes me want to disappear.

2013

I guess nothing made me cynical, amazing.

2014

One dictionary says, distrustful of human nature, mocking. Hmmm. I don’t like when someone you thought cared about you ends up not making an effort to be there when you need them. Trust disappears.

Question? The best hour of today was _____. Why?

2012

Eating pizza with my boys. Nice to eat together. Plus, Shay will be going to college soon and will not be eating with us too much except visits.

2013

I guess I did not have a best hour today. Maybe they were all the best! 🙂

2014

Being at the movies with the boys and then eating afterwards at IHOP. Spending the time with them. It was Shay’s treat which made it even better. 🙂 We had fun and it got us out of the house. 🙂

Question? What’s the last meal someone cooked for you?

2012

It was when hubby was home on R&R in May. He is currently deployed. He made Mac&Cheese with hamburger in it. His favorite that he likes to make. Sure miss him.

2013

Guess no one cooked for me.

2014

Monday Shay made the sloppy joes while I caught up on dishes that go in the dishwasher. It was yummy and simple. He is learning. 🙂

Letters Feb 2013 006 Envelopes I made out of some wild paper! 🙂

June 19

Question? What was the last personal letter you received?

2012

Gosh, I can not recall. I have had cards but not much is written in them. I think maybe the last letter was Farra when she was at Colby going to college last year.

2013

Obviously, no letters arrived.

2014

It’s been since Christmas and that was a newsletter type letter. We get mostly junk mail. BLAH.

June 20

Question? Write the first sentence of your autobiography.

2012

I am a creative but quiet woman who loves adventure.

2013

I have no words.

2014

Who am I?

June 21

Question? What do you want to know better?

2012

I want to be more fluent with my design software. This way I can get jobs or sell products.

2013

No entry.

2014

I want to know more about Illustrator. I have the software but have yet barely touched the surface of it.

Edgar-Loo-doodle I made this in Illustrator. My writing muse! 🙂

 

 

 

Lettermo sparks creativity

Letters Feb 2013 006

I received a letter from one of my new pen pals and they had made their own envelope out of a map. I loved it!

I took the envelope apart and traced the outline on to paper for a template. I now have my own long envelopes which can be made from any paper you may wish. I had this wild animal paper that has been sitting in my stockpile for years and now have a great use for it. 🙂 I did use white labels so the post office could see the addresses clearly. I also taped the sides to make sure the letter didn’t slide out on its travels.

I hope it adds some smiles to all who look upon it. 🙂

Its Lettermo instead of NaNoWriMo

I came across a site that a lady began where you write a letter, a card, or any kind of through the mail item in the month of February. I love getting mail so I signed up. I have a lot of family and friends that do not write anymore. I so miss having the fun mail instead of all the junk mail and bills.

I have some new pen pals and I am looking forward to getting my mail now. I sent my first one today to my son since I had the card already. I am going to love buying some new stationary. I love stationary. I have one lady that actually sends a small size of her art. I am really looking forward to that.

Here is the site if anyone else is interested in it. Happy writing!
