Brecken, Annette, Lisa, Pam & Momma
Slick & Lisa
The cake we had to celebrate was AMAZING!
Linda McClure from Vidalia, LA made the cake using the cricut to decorate cake. Notice the scrapbook paper on the table. Mrs. McClure made the cake look like the paper. Cool! I wish we could show people there is so much more to learning basic math, english, history, science. We can make learning fun. Mrs. McClure was a school teacher and now she makes cakes and has fun doing it. I did not think I would ever need all the above subjects but I use them daily in scrapbooking. I have just learned a creative way to use them and remember them. There is a creative way to get students attention. Slick took ceramics at Co-Lin to get his GPA up. It worked but whats more important is he learned something new. Now he is taken ceramics II. He sold his ceramics at Scrap~N~on the River.
Slick tries so hard to help the young girls that come to the convention with their mothers to feel good. He says he knows what it felt like at the DU banquet as a child and he did not win anything. He tries to make sure that does not happen at Scrap~N~on the River.

Pockets are a wonderful thing and not just in paper crafting. Look around you at all the pockets you use or see. There are pockets for displaying things (a silk handkerchief in a man's suit), those that hold things (pant's pockets or wallet), ones for organizing (in a purse or briefcase), a few to hide things in (a child's pockets), others to catch things (pockets on a pool table or baseball glove) and a place or position (football quarterbacks stand in the pocket or in a bowling, the space between the head pin and the next pin behind). You can be in a pocket, put things in a pocket, line one's pockets, or be out of pocket. So how does this related to paper crafting? In much the same ways it does in every day life. Here are a few examples: Use a pocket to hold an item such as a gift card, tag, or note. Use a pocket as an accent or to display something. Hide part of the card in a pocket; show part of the hidden item. Use multiple pockets to sort several things. Place a pocket on a tag, bag or box. In this class, you will learn new techniques for making pockets which can be applied to scrapbook pages or cards. You will receive all the supplies to complete three cards during

We in Adams County are in a DEPRESSED community and we are looking for jobs to come to our community. This is why I am writing you today after receiving the email from Brian Rhoa on the subject Execs: Process Begins to Determine Centers of Expertise for Accounting I know without a doubt our community leaders would do what ever it takes to get the COE’s in Natchez, MS. I have been out of the work force for about 10yrs and do not understand with technology as it is the ARC is so for behind times. I was raised by a single mother with three children watching M.A.S.H. seeing the BIG RED CROSS everywhere. But over the years until Hurricane Katrina and Rita I did not know what happened to the BIG RED CROSS. I am very interested in the Red Cross because I like helping people in need. Since 2005 our nation has over come a lot of bumps in the road and we as a national organization need to learn how to put it in gear and roll on with the changes. But pay attention to what the needs are. There is so much red tape that bogs us down it is hard to move forward. I have a number of ideas that would be very cost effective and would put the BIG RED CROSS out there in a positive way.
You can go to http://www.natchezdemocrat.com/news/2009/apr/06/frank-named-interim-manager-red-cross/ and http://www.natchezdemocrat.com/news/2008/dec/12/red-cross-assists-county-residents/ to read up on the Adams County Red Cross. You can also go on my website to see who I am, http://www.scrapnontheriver.com/ and after, you should be able to tell I am a go getter and do not back down from a challenge. I would like to do what ever I can to help make the ARC in our community/nation more user friendly and service minded

I hope my son will move back to Natchez and marry a girl that loves him as much as I love his dad. We have one son, Slick and live next door to my husbands parents. My father-in-law has had alot of problems. In 1999, he had surgery on his foot and developed MRSA. He lost is leg and had to take IV antibiotics 2 to 3 times a day for 6months. I would have to get up at 5a.m. take the medicine out of the refridgerater so it could get room temp then go back at 6a.m. to start the IV. This was done for 6months one time and 3months two other times. Now my mother-in-law is sick and has to be cared for. At the same time my dad is in a SNF hospital after having a bus wreck. Being the oldest child comes responsablity like the one my mom looks to for help. After my dads wreck I stayed with momma at the hospital in Jackson MS. for 3weeks until I felt they where okay by themselves. On Oct. 14, 2009 my laptop was stolen from UMC waiting room but that was not as important as mom and dad being ok. Here it is Janurary 2009 and now it is my mother-in-laws turn again. This is why I am Blogging about the cycle of parents & children.
I pray daily for my son and that he will be successful. Having only one son is scary because who will take care of us when we are old. Parents do not want to be a burden but this is part of the cycle of parents & children.
