Happy Birthday to my daughter

She's six today. *sniff* Growing up so fast! We'll need to keep her main party low key since we just went to Disneyland a couple weeks ago, and it will probably be toward the end of the month to let a few people schedule some time off, even if it's just to take an extended "lunch break", which is what her dad will need to do. Well, she and I are off to the store before school to pick up some cupcakes for her class. I hope I get enough for everyone, I'm not really sure how many kids there are, so…

Testing to see if HootSuite will pick up my feed again since I switched over to WP.

If you have XBOX Live, be warned

From what my husband and I have been reading, this has been going on for a while, but today we were victims. Thankfully it wasn't for too much money, but any amount of stolen money is bad enough in the scheme of things. His XBOX Live account was hacked today.  Around 2PM he texts me and asks if either our daughter or I had purchased anything on XBOX.  Not that I was aware of, because my daughter had been playing the Disney Kinect game, and we purposely log out of his account and use hers since…

Moving away from ArtFire

I've had a storefront at Etsy for a while, but I had not listed anything there.  I mainly used it for buying supplies. With an upheaval over at ArtFire recently with some new program that really sounds hokey (to put it kindly), I've decided it's no longer the place for me. As a result, I'll be moving my items over to Etsy, and also over to Zibbet. I've moved all of the hairbows I had listed at AF, over to Zibbet.  My polyclay items and jewelry, I'll move over to Etsy, but it will be a slow…

You are not imagining things

Just a quick post before I head to bed. No you are not going crazy and seeing things. (not that anyone stalks this place that much, LOL) Yes I did switch things around, I'm using WP again.  I know, I'm a glutton for punishment, but this program is so much easier to use than what I used before.  I just need to keep up the updates when they come out and hopefully everything should be fine. (remind me again in six months when I'm screaming about my site being attacked, yet again) Anyway.  Out…

Vacation - there and back again

The three of us just got back from vacation yesterday.  We went to Disneyland, for our daughter it was her first time.  She did really well with all of the walking we did (we figure we averaged about five miles a day), all of the waiting in line and the boredom that ensues with the waiting. Cast of characters: My husband - J My daughter - Z me Grandma On the drive out, she asked probably about seven or eight times “are we there yet?”, half of which was asked before we had…

Spiffy Title decoration

I think I got the spiffy fonts in the post titles to work in IE finally.  I can see it in IE on my PC, so I think most everyone else should be able to as well. I think I like this one better than the other though.  It looks more similar to how I write.

Reinventing the Wheel

Remember not long ago, I mentioned wanting to update the look of my blog?  And that it would probably not be a very speedy process, yeah? I still haven’t really gotten past the “wanting to” stage, but I have been rethinking whether I should stick with this CMS, ExpressionEngine (EE), or change back to…. WordPress. Yes, I know.  That program frustrated me with the two times my site got hacked, and was the reason I switched over to EE. But designing in EE was…

Really? And on months old posts, even

Wanna see how fast I block a spammer from posting anymore? Done. I like how they try to fake things by trying to make the comments look related in some way. The lastest one even carried the same topic of their comment into a different post, like it was a continuation of their thought but they didn’t want to leave it on one post, they had to spread it around. Psh. You spam, you banned. Enjoy reading all you want, Mr./Ms. Spammer, but you won’t be able to comment anymore!  :p

Polymer Clay Smooshers - Christmas in July sales

I created a collection of items from a mix of fellow guild members who are participating in the “Christmas in July” sale & promo going on over at ArtFire. Alas I am not having a sale myself, but I figure I would promote some of my fellow guild members who are!  Check them out: #widgetcont p{ padding:0; margin:0; } .title_brown, .title_brown a, .title_brown a:link, .title_brown a:active, .title_brown a:visited, .title_brown a:hover { color:#dfa754; font-weight:bold; }…
