Unfortunite Upgrading

This is the holiday card I demoed on Twin Cities Live last week. I have posted the instructions below. I also got a surprise on Friday when I received an email from my producer from the show seeing if I was available this Wednesday. I will be demoing a choker made out of washers. I’ve been busy making samples and the step outs for the show. I’ll post it on Wednesday.

4. On the 4 ¾” white cardstock write a holiday greeting such as: “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas.” Center and glue to the inside of the card.

I’ve fallen in love with another KPop singer, Lee Ji Hoon. Here is my favorite song right now. He is only 30 and has been singing professional since he was in high school.

Our ancient scanner decided to die and Rocketman ordered a new one. Installing it has been a nightmare and proven to be impossible. He was on the phone last week for hours with Epson with the conclusion that we need a new computer. Our present computer is only 4 years old. We bought it shortly before the move to Korea.

Poor Rocketman with business trips to Asia and an empty bedroom needing paint so I can move my craft room into it hardly has time for anything more on his plate. I think the bedroom is more important but he disagrees. Family is coming up next week for the holidays and I had wanted the room done before then just because. I really hate get a new computer because this one will random change to Korea time and it just makes me smile to see what time it is in Korea.
