Birthday Card Using CTMH I Want Candy Special

Hello friends!  Are you having fun this fall?  I haven't done much.  Still waiting till I feel well enough to get my flu shot.  At least I got the COVID booster out of the way for a while; which is a big relief for me.  It cooled down to 70's here in Southern CA; but I see it won't last until the temperatures go up again.  

I hope the mosquitoes go away soon.  Both my husband and I are getting really tired of fighting with them all day long in the house.  I can't get anything done; as they bite me constantly in my craft room, bathroom, dining room and kitchen.  I finally bought 2 of those zappers and they do get some of them; but not before I get bitten several times.  They appear to like me better because they don't bite my husband; but they do annoy him all the time.  They fly straight into our faces and then I knock my glasses off trying to hit them.  I use glasses for reading, computer and crafting.  I don't recall ever having them in the house before I moved to CA over 25 yrs ago.

Click here for my new CTMH Videos. I added CTMH Workspace Wonder products to my desk a few years ago; and I was not able to use my video recorder on my desk after I did that.  It took me a long time to finally come up with a way to do videos with that same recorder; but on a different arm/holder.  Thanks for your patience. 

Remember - Keep On Creating!!
It's Good For Your Health!!
