Halloween Tree!!!

Halloween Tree!!!
The svg file is from SVGcuts dot com.  This seemed fitting for 2020.  I had previously made 2 for Christmas.  I had wanted to make one of these trees for several years.  But each time I thought about it, it was near Christmas & I didn’t have the time to devote to it.  But 2020 gave me plenty of time, so I made three of them.  😉  The [...]

Dragonfly lanterns

Dragonfly lanterns
I love these.  So I made one for me & one for a friend.  Since this was a Covid-19 quarantine project & I didn’t have any vellum (at least that I could find… we moved a few months ago & I still don’t know where everything is), I used 8 1/2 x 11 inch heat laminating sheets.  Tore them apart (so they were single la [...]

Christmas trees!!!

Christmas trees!!!
I had wanted to make this tree for the past few years.  But it looked like a labor intensive project & I always thought of making it in December… when I didn’t have that much time to spare.  So this became a perfect quarantine 2020 project.  I couldn’t decide whether to make a green one or a white one.  But hey, it’ [...]

Mah Jongg Christmas Ornaments

Mah Jongg Christmas Ornaments
I’m new to Mah Jongg.  Only been playing about 4 years.  But I love it.  And I love the ladies & the camaraderie.  This year, I made Christmas ornaments for my Mah Jongg ladies.  I used some white paint I had on hand.  Initially, it was good.  But then over a few days, I noticed the paint on some of the ornamants was “fading&# [...]

Paprika Recipe Manager

Paprika Recipe Manager
As a self proclaimed software junkie, one application I’ve used for about 27 years is Mastercook recipe manager.  It was (and remains) a  great desktop app.  But when they ventured into the realm of cloud syncing so that the recipes sync between a desktop, tablet and phone, they failed miserably.  Since I’m a loyal customer, I str [...]

Password managers

Password managers
Having spent 39 years in IT, here are my suggestions regarding online passwords. First, do not use passwords that are comprised of family names, pet names, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.  DO use strong, complex passwords.  (A password manger will make this VERY EASY.) Second, NEVER use the same password for multiple accounts.  (A password man [...]

Mother’s Birthday Luncheon 2018...

Mother’s Birthday Luncheon 2018!!!
The 7th Annual Mother’s Birthday luncheon is a wrap & I think one of the best ones!  (I think that every year, though!  And I’m finally getting around to posting about it!)  Fourteen guests and a “drive by” (Ashley’s daughter’s birthday is the same day (she was 15 this year!), so she stops by for a few minutes.) Another guest had t [...]
