Some Lovely Reminders

Whew, what a week this was - glad it's over, and a new one is starting!

As I'm catching my breath and making my lists for the week (and checking them twice), I wanted to let you in on the action...

First, a hearty "thank you" to all of you who stopped by the Creative Bloggers Got Talent contest last week and voted for me.  I spent all day Friday and yesterday working up my project for Round II, and submitted my photos last night.  I sure wish I could share these with you, but all submissions need to stay anonymous.  It's the best way to keep things fair.  So the gentle reminder here is this:  voting opens on Tuesday.  PLEASE GO VOTE!  The button on my sidebar will redirect you to the contest if you click it.  Voting will probably work like last time, where you can vote twice a day.  So vote early, vote often!

And PS - as soon as I can, I'll post the project!

Second, because of camera issues last week, instead of getting a nice little post every day last week, three of them went up at once on Thursday afternoon and evening.  If you haven't checked them out yet, we finished the tea cozy tutorial for Tea for Tuesday, an adorable fabric votive candle holder for One Yard Wednesday, and a fun post for International Dog Biscuit Day.

Because of the technical difficulties and the contest project, today is a catch-up and catch-your-breath day for me.  I have some cleaning to do, and lots and lots of baking and cooking.  Which brings me to my third reminder...

The BIG TV appearance is also Tuesday!  This is the general viewing area for our local station:
West of IL Route 59
East of I-39
North of I-80 (but it includes parts of Grundy and LaSalle Counties)
South of I-88

If you are either in or close to that box, please tune in to WSPY on Tuesday morning at 8:30 am.  I'll be on, and discussing some information about being gluten free.

Which is why I'm baking and cooking today - I'll be showing some of the really delicious gluten free treats you can do easily and (relatively) inexpensively, and of course, I'll be posting the recipes here.

This fourth reminder is a calendar item that you should have on your calendar.  Daylight savings time is coming up the second weekend in March.  This is when you change the batteries in your smoke detector.  This is also a pretty good weekend to do some other things around your home that should be done twice a year, because the switching of the clocks acts like a good memory tool.

I told you I had a list!

Have a great week, everyone!
