Baby Blankets

It seems like it goes in phases in our family with new little babies arriving. This fall my niece had her third child and he is so adorable. Now my nephew and girlfriend are expecting a little girl in March. Babies are so fun and I love holding them. Thinking about gifts for babies makes me think of buying baby blankets. They come in so many different varieties and you can also buy them by gender which would be perfect to buy one of the cute baby girl blankets for my nephew's little girl. Back in blanket history you can find that that is probably the one item that most babies feel security with so if you know of someone who is expecting you may want to purchase a special baby blanket for their new baby.


I went this morning to get a haircut. It really wasn't too long but thought I would get it shaped up before we have our last family Christmas. It's amazing how good it can make a person feel to just get a little hair cut off. I am sure glad I didn't cancel my appointment because I had thought to do that. She did a great job and it feels great too!

The Muppets

This Friday we are going as a family to see the latest Muppet movie. We have a theater not far from us that is playing it and it only cost $2 per person to get in. Now that's a bargain. They have good popcorn too. So that is what we are going to do for entertainment on Friday night. We have heard nothing but good commments about this movie.

Being the Boss

Being the Boss

Thanks for the post from Sylvester Campbell

Being the boss is hard enough as it is but in this economy it’s downright petrifying. I’ve been working overtime trying to figure out ways to save us more money so I won’t have to lay anyone off but as you can imagine, it’s not like having a stationery company is a cash cow in this economy. I looked on not too long ago for a cheaper business system than what I was using and that’s going to save us some on the website and I’ve asked my calligrapher to go part time rather than full. I actually even stopped sourcing paper from the high-end company I’ve used for years because they were just too pricey – I cut my costs to keep up with waning demand. I think we’ll make it through thanks to a happy holiday season with lots of cards as well as a hopefully bountiful wedding season coming up in the spring. Etsy is also a great money maker for us so I’m going to keep on keeping on until I can’t!

Christmas Preparation

I am busy trying to get the last minute Christmas prep done before Saturday. That is when we will be celebrating Christmas together with our sons. I have some desserts to make, clean house some and work too. I have tomorrow off so I am going to accomplish as much as I possibly can before our sons get home tomorrow night. I am excited and love this time of year.

Mobile Computer Workstations at

If you have ever visited a hospital recently you will often see these mobile computer workstations that the nurses and doctors can roll into room after room and check on the patients records or other information they may need. It has to be so handy for these nurses and doctors because there isn't a lot of running back and forth to find out information they need to know at that time. For equipment like this any hospital facility could find mobile computer workstations at

Bobcats for Sale

My husband is the administrator of an retirement facility and we live where we tend to get lots of snow. He does have a large blade on his truck to move all the snow throughout the parking lots but he often says how nice it would be to have a bobcat to help pile it up higher. For fun he has looked at bobcats for sale to see just what it would cost to own one. Maybe some day he will be able to get one to help around the place where he works.

I get so excited when I get the weekend off. I work every other weekend and treasure the ones I have off. Tonight my husband and I are going to the movie Courageous. Then tomorrow we will probably stick around home and get some chores done. We may take a day and do some Christmas shopping. Then on Monday when I am still off we are going to our sons place and go to the casino where our oldest son works and eat their Mexican buffet. They have the best buffets ever there. So I think we have some productive things planned and some fun. I am really looking forward to this weekend!
