This is not a pioneer settlement, either.

....but it has been here at my home. We had 12 inches(!!!!) of snow this last week, which knocked out my power and my Internet connection. There were more than 200,000 people without power in DFW, and for us Texans, "cold" is one frontier we haven't quite conquered yet. Thank goodness my power's back on, but the Internet connection has yet to be found. Arg.

Of course, all of this happened in the midst if my daughter's room being featured on A Soft Place to Land, which garnered so many new visitors! Thanks also for following me, and please, please don't give up on me just yet. I'm here, but posting via an iPhone is not exactly optimal. I hope to be back posting soon once we find my Internet connection and will, most likely, be posting about how I made the sweet little tree I made in my daughter's room.

I wanted to thank you for writing about your photo book as a coupon book. I did that several months ago and it has really worked for me. I spent an hour the last week getting all my coupons together, and e-mail offers and I ended up having $75 worth of coupons in that book!! On stuff I actually use! Thanks girlie!
