Painted Sheriff's Star

I did these (there are actually two) for the boys' cowboy bedroom. The inspiration came from a photo I saw in a catalog (I think it was Land of Nod.) Its just freehanded, would probably look lots better (especially the lettering) if I would have taken the time to trace some letters. It was just a major accomplishment to get them painted! Besides putting their names on the stars, I also wrote their Bible verse around the edges of the canvas. (Someday I'll add photos of the nursery and the OFF THE CHARTS mural my m-i-l did...it also includes their Bible verses...very sweet!)

Framed Photo Confetti


I just love Darcy Miller from Martha Stewart Weddings. She is so talented and clever! I happened to see the episode where she was sharing
her scrapboxes with Martha. SO AMAZING!!!
One in particular caught me eye...The Framed Photo Confetti Box.
Well I didn't have any photo confetti, but I have lots of pictures and a photo printer. I didn't do a step-by-step of this as I wasn't blogging yet, but will do one as I'm going to recreate the above picture for both of my brothers. (Not really worried about spoiling the surprise for them...they're not exactly craft/food blog followers! )
Basically, this is what I did:
I made a file folder on my computer with a special label just for these pictures.
Then I went through folders I had already created for each of my family members, copying the pictures of them that I wanted to use and transferring them to the above mentioned folder. (I tried to be sure there were an equal number of pictures of all the siblings...if you have children, you know how this goes...lots of pictures of first child, some of 2nd child and, well, the 3rd child has the fewest.) This one has 120 pictures. I took each picture, transferred it to a Print Shop program, cropped and resized to about 7/8" square.
The page was full of tiny black & white photos of my sweet family.
Then I made my own "confetti" by punching out each picture with a 3/4 circle punch. On a 12 x 12 piece of heavy white cardstock, I lightly lined out a grid in pencil. I erased the lines except for the "+" where the lines intersected. With mini glue dots I randomly added each photo. I also created a little label that I also printed with the photo that said "Earley Family, Est. 1959" I added it to the left corner, close to a picture of my paretns at their wedding. Since I didn't have any scrapboxes or shadow boxes on hand, I used a 12 X 12 frame I got 1/2 off at hobby lobby. It worked great!
I made this for my parents as a late 51st Wedding Anniversary gift. They seemed to really like it!
I can't wait to make more!!

My first attemt to link to one of these...bear with me if I make a mess of it...

How To View General Device Info From Home Screen

How To View General Device Info From Home Screen

Information such as your PIN, IMEI, OS version, and even signal strength can be found by navigating through the option menus and viewing sections such as About and Status, however there is a simpler way to view most of it on one screen. Using this simple keyboard shortcut, you can display all of your basic device information in one place, directly from your home screen.



This function serves primarily as a help feature while troubleshooting with technical support, though it comes in very handy for most users who learn about it.



To access the Help Me status screen, simply hold down the ALT and CAP keys simultaneously, and press H.

How To Add an Extension to a Contact

How To Add an Extension to a Contact
While this may be obvious to some, many people aren’t aware that you can easily program extensions directly into your contact list to be automatically dialed after the main phone number. While this process is mainly used for extensions, it can also be used to program passwords for auto-entry for alternate voicemail accounts, or even to automatically navigate you through an IVR system that uses keytones. There are actually 3 methods of doing this, which vary slightly in convenience and effect.
To insert a 3 second pause into your contact list entry, you have two options. The first, and most obvious option is to enter the edit screen for the contact (Contacts, highlight contact, Menu, Edit), and navigate to the end of the phone number in which you wish to add the extension to. Press the Menu key, and select Add Pause. You will notice an icon containing the letter P will appear, indicating a 3 second pause. Following the icon, simply enter the extension you want to dial automatically, and save (menu, save).

If you’d like a longer delay before automatically dialing the extension, you can add multiple pauses, with each one adding 3 seconds to the pause in dialing.

The second, and easiest method, is to insert a capital X between the phone number and extension. This will have the same effect as the first option, without having to use the menu to add the pause. To insert a capital X, hold the alt key and press the X key on your keyboard.

The third option provides a slightly different effect, which is called the Wait function. This feature will prompt you during the call to enter the extension automatically if you choose, which can be beneficial if you don’t always want the contact entry to include the extension. To add the wait function to a contact, navigate to the end of the phone number in the edit screen, press menu, and select Add Wait.

RIM Pondering Whether to Change the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider to BlackBerry Tourch 9800

RIM Pondering Whether to Change the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider to BlackBerry Tourch 9800
9800foto 021 300x198 RIM Pondering Whether to Change the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider to BlackBerry Tourch 9800

Seems rumor has it that Research in Motion (RIM) is considering launching the BlackBerry Slider 9800 as the BlackBerry Tourch. This would add another name to the BlackBerry family which already exist of the BlackBerry Bold, Curve, Pearl, and Storm. Now to some people it doesn’t really matter what you call the device it just matters what it does, but people like me actually look into it deeply ( call me crazy!). Seems like RIM has also bought the BlackBerryTourch.com domain name which shows that this is more of an idea. Now the last time that RIM developed a new device name ( The Tour series) it kind of flopped and is no longer part of the family. It might be due to the purchase of the company Tourch mobile.

Now my question is it a good idea to bring a new device name into the family? Also Why would they do this? Well think about it, if the BlackBerry Slider is a big failure and has the Bold Branding on it then it looks bad for the Bold series which is RIM’s Flagship series and has a pretty good history of being great devices. Now I don’t work for RIM so I don’t know what they are actually thinking but maybe this is close maybe not! Seems like some slider devices are already being manufactured down in RIM’s plant in Guadalajara, Mexico carrying the Torch branding. What do you all think? Is this a good idea or bad?

Another table at the party

My amazing M-I-L designed the table and I provided the desserts. We both have a love of tablescapes and much if my inspiration comes from her. I keep telling her to start a blog or I'm going to do it for her...people would love to see what she can do with a table! Be sure to scroll down to see more of her tables from this party.

My M-I-L graciously used my cakeballs as a centerpiece and dessert at her sorority reunion luncheon. Doesn't she set a beautiful table? The pops were red velvet. Each guest received a chocolate chip cookie dough ball and a pina colada ball nestled in red, white & blue candies under a glass dome.

Race to the Bottom with Cliffed

Race to the Bottom with Cliffed
 Race to the Bottom with Cliffed

One of the most addictive and fun pick up and play games I have seen is Cliffed, I have played it on my iPad extensively and it is a very enjoyable puzzle/action game. The graphics are not always going to be your cup of tea, as they are a bit anime styled (some of you like that, I know) so take that into consideration.

The gameplay is pretty straight forward and fun however and it makes for a very fun game to play over and over again (you might get bored after a month or two, but by that time it has paid for itself).

Cliffed is an amusing vertical scrolling type game which allows you to race to the bottom of the location. Races become difficult as you get better at the game and opponents are always a challenge. Great as a single player game or turn based game to determine who is the fastest at descending from the highest of heights. High scores are tallied by speed and players can post scores online to compete against. Game play does have a short learning curve but provides some entertainment when learning how to go down the fastest.

Features Include:

  • Playable Characters – there are a total of 12 characters that are available. You start off with a few and unlock more the better you do in the game.
  • Grab and Go Controls – You can instantly start playing the game as the controls are very simple and easy to get used to.
  • Endless Game Play – The game will never stale as the challenges are always changing while providing the addictive quality to continue to beat the high scores.
  • Graphics – Smooth and polished graphics make the game even more enjoyable when descending at high speeds in Cliffed.

Pickup Cliffed in the BlackBerry App World for a very good price of $2.99 and enjoy, Cliffed supports all BlackBerry App World devices.
