Happy dance

Two posts in a short time!  But I'm so excited I have to tell you.  You won't believe it.  My old printer is working!  I plugged it in and gave it one last shot and it's working.  I can't believe it.  We worked on it for days, tried it for days afterward, and nothing.  No black ink at all. 
 
Just to show you how bad the print was on the HP 6830 Office jet, take a look at the top compared to the 6520 on the bottom.  This is why I couldn't use older labels or anything that was already in the computer.  I don't know if anyone is interested but I may have a few boxes this week.  They will all be the tall oval since no others are available.  Making a trip to Hobby Lobby this week but they usually only have one of each size since they separate sets.  It's almost 70 degrees, we went for a walk at 10pm last night - heaven!  Still warm today. 
So that's what I wanted to share.  And one more thing.
Don't forget to decorate your fridge.
 
Have a great day!!

You have a GREAT day too. Love the fridge with the stitching on it. All my fridge is covered in are doctors appointments for him upstairs. Oh yeah and a Lottery ticket - not that we have won anything in all the years it's been on here in England. Oh wait a sec we used to win the odd £10.00 here and there. It's even warm here in England.

Just took a look at Joann's site...they seem to have several sets of paper mache boxes available, free shipping with order of over $60 (never hard for me to reach that figure!) or, you may have a store close to you?? Just a thought.

Congratulations on your printer working! I've learned not to question these things as that just creates more problems! My fridge is neglected. Have to work on that!

I like the piece on the frig. Is it the tree from an earlier Cricket Collection chart? Marly, I love your new blog header. Very inspiring! Glad your printer is working! Have you seen the site, Create for Less? They have paper mache boxes if you are interested.

Hooray!
My fridge always gets decorated with two vintage felt with sequins Santa magnets, my Great Aunt Ethel made.

Marly,
Nice decorating. What I really wanted to tell you is thank you for teaching me about your steam smash method. I really appreciated your tips on making these little pillows. My ornaments look so much better!
Merry Christmas to you and yours,
Lancy in Idaho

Do you know what pattern the Merry Christmas is that you have on your blog header?
Thanks.
