I need to get 2 days with of computer usage in in the next 6 hours. Eric will be confiscating the computer so he has something to do while he goes in to sit for a cow musk ox tag. He'll have the truck and the computer. Guess I'm really stuck at home unless I want to spend $6 on a cab ride (one way). I went to the store and bought him some goodies for sitting in the truck. He said I could actually have some of the quviet from this musk ox!!!!! I'm excited about that.
On another note, while I was in town buying groceries I had to return a movie that we rented yesterday. I was just going to pull up real quick, run the movie in and leave. I pull up into a spot that everyone pulls up into and this older gentlemen (60/70 something), comes up to me and says you can't park here. I told him I was just going to run a movie in and he's like "this is a fire lane only!" First of all, I don't know why it's considered a fire lane, because a fire truck CAN NOT get through. Second of all, people do it all the time! Someone just pulled out right before me. So to make the guy happy, I told him "thank you for reminding me" and then went to park half way down the parking lot to return the movie. No sooner than I had left though, someone else pulled up in the same spot and ran into the movie place! Okay, I know it was wrong, but everyone does it. How did I get so lucky as to be the one confronted. I felt so guilty afterwards :(
Okay, I better get this wrapped up because I want to get it posted soon.

The bummer of the trip is that Anchorage just opened (back in October) a Target. The first for the state. I wanted so bad to go to Target, but it is located way out by the base and unfortunately those roads were never really great enough were I felt comfortable travelling them. The buses were also not running that far out of town on Thursday. We got back to Bethel on Friday night on one of the few flights that had left in the past 3 days.
The weather was bad enough to cause problems for the K300, Bethels Dog Sled Race. They were suppose to start on Friday, but because of the warming weather and rain, there was too many "swimming" holes. They didn't want a repeat of last years race. Luckily on Friday night we had a cooling wave with high winds come through to help refreeze what had thawed. We had temperatures drop into the teens and winds of 50+ mph and gusts past 70 mph. They finally got things going Sunday afternoon at noon and they cut out the last leg of the race. Racers are already on their way back to Bethel. They should be coming in early tomorrow morning.

I'm really liking this pattern and I think I'm going to enjoy making it again. I love how it's crocheted, but doesn't look crocheted. What do you all think??????

These were so easy to make. All you do is take a white CD sleeve and do a little stamping! I added some patterned paper into the envelope for a decorative background. I made just plain old sugar cookies for the final touch. I tried to make some candy cane type cookie, but they failed miserably.
Here's another card that I made yesterday. I decided that I was going to start trying to do some of Kristina Werners Card Color Challenges. This challenge was to use SU (stampin' up) Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive and Whisper White.
I think I'll be enjoying working on cards like this. I like being "told" what colors to use. Makes it a little easier to decide.

I'm using close to the same color. It's an intermediate pattern, but I don't think it's too difficult. Once I get it done, I'll make sure I post some pics.
