Oh, this is great

I found this on the Cosmo Cricket blog, and I just had to share!

Dear Tech Support:

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a slowdown in the overall performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications that had operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0. In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, but installed undesirable programs such as NFL 5.0 and NBA 3.0. And now Conversation 8.0 no longer runs and House Cleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. I've tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.

What can I do?


Dear Desperate:

First keep in mind; Boyfriend 5.0 is an entertainment package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system. Try entering the command


and download Tears 6.2 to install Guilt 3.0. If all works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.

But remember, overuse can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1. Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will create Snoring Loudly.wav files.

Whatever you do, DO NOT install Mother-in-Law 1.0 or reinstall another Boyfriend program. These are not supported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have a limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider additional software to improve memory and
performance. I personally recommend Hot Food 3.0 and Lingerie 6.9.

Good Luck,
Joyce at Tech Support

Rockin' and a Rollin'

First off, I'd like to thank everyone who visits my blog. I love looking at the live feed to see where everyone who visits lives. My boyfriend is quite interested in that too, but then again he's interested in anything that involves communication with people around the world - he's enthralled with the mail system. I always hear something like "don't you think it's cool that this letter/postcard/parcel was in [select city] just a few days ago?". Yes, it doesn't take much to excite him =P!

And, here's another layout completed for CHA. I used the sketch from SBE's Aug/Sept. issue (page 94).

Materials used : My Mind's Eye "Parade" collection
American Crafts Felt Thickers
My Little Shoebox Mini Alpha Stickers
Bazzill Cradstock
Jolee's Stickers

I'm like a kid in a candy store!

It's such a scrappy day for me! I've completed 2 layouts (seen in the post below), went to Michaels and grabbed a bunch of Making Memories "Vintage Findings" (hello, it was 40% off!), and my huge shopping spree from 2peas came in today. Since I'm so giddy about all the goodies, I thought I'd post pictures of them. Hopefully they'll inspire you to go through your stash and start scrapping for CHA, too!

Feel free to click on any image to enlarge =)

Some alpha stickers - you can never have enough!

A couple of stamps. The Basic Grey stamp was sent to me (for free) from 2peas because I spent so much on BG supplies!

Some travel goodies. 2Peas was sold out of everything I wanted, so I'll definitely have to keep my eye out for the rest of it.

Some summer themed goodies!

All my BG "bling it" goodies. If it was in stock, it was in my cart!

More bling! Can you tell that I have a minor addiction?

Love these stars (and the "little devil" stickers)

Some Maya Road chipboard albums (to add to the ever growing collection =P )

Some randomness. I love the canvas tags. They'll go perfect in the mini album I'm working on

Some Primas. Aren't they gorgeous?!

And some random papers. There were more pictured, but for some reason the image is cut off.

CHA Celebration

So, CHA is in full gear, so what better excuse to scrap?

Summer CHA 2009

What's better than when a bunch of gorgeous new products are being released? Nothing (well, maybe laying on the couch eating a tub of ice cream [with no consequences mind you] and the hubby giving me a foot massage) !

Here are a couple of my favorites that are going to be released, and I cannot wait!!

First, new Bella Blvd. Their "Camped Out" line is super cute!

Love Reminisce's "Autumn Forest", too! There seems to be a theme going on here ;)

Also, Sassafras never disappoints!
