Friday Greetings ! A super cool line up today beginning with: STEPHANIE'S CHIC ON THE CHEAP IDEAS It's not too late to add another few peek-a-boo things around our homes just in time for Christmas. LOVE the gift wrapped pizza boxes! What a trick idea. My favorite pizza is and always has been Italian Sausage + Green Pepper -- thin crust.  Ordering now so I can eat the contents and wrap the box! ((Little fun fact)) My first job at the age of 16 was working at Pizza Hut in Billings, Montana.  Employees got to order a small pizza while working a shift to either eat on break or take it home.  My second favorite was Taco Pizza!   *sigh* Taco Pizza is no longer on their menu.  Boo


Hey-hey friends! How was Thanksgiving?  Ours was wonderful.  Can't go wrong with great food, family, laughter and sharing stories and enjoying each others company.  Thanks-Giving happened! Well - It's official! Christmas season has arrived.  Time for me to break out my pretty twinkle and chunk lights, retro tree (yes, I have a silver one that my great Aunt Jen Lou gifted me with the roll around color wheel - circa probably 1960) , decorations and a wreath or 2.  EXCITED. Great line-up today. BEGINNING WITH STEPHANIE'S CHIC ON THE CHEAP COLUMN 42nd high school reunion?!  Impossible - you look too young, for that timeline, Steph.  Seriously.


Hola! How's your week been?  And how's gearing up for Thanksgiving going? All's good around here.  Never a dull moment and plenty of laughter and what in the world peek-a-boos! Another fabulous line-up today beginning with Stephanie's Chic on the Cheap. Gotta love the cool versatile look this one little faux-fur bomber style jacket offers.  Once again (!) Steph keeps us in the know and shares with us her insider tips on how to dress to impress.  Thanks, Steph! The QUICK QUESTION has my mind thinking of several answers.  I'll just stand with what my Grandpa used to say, "If you can't say anything nice -- don't say anything at all."


Greetings Beautiful Readers and Happy Friday ! Another stellar line up this 5 for FRIDAY beginning with: STEPHANIE'S CHIC ON THE CHEAP column. As always, Steph brings her innate fashion expertise to us!  Fortunate us - she writes exclusively for Daymaker Readable Art. The SPANX leather looking leggings are the bomb-a-reno!  Love that they're so versatile - tennis shoes, boots, sweatshirt, dressy shirt, and BONUS they keep any jiggle-wiggles tucked in! I'm gravitating toward the tennis shoe look with the SPANX leggings.  That's me. My sisters, have said to me more than a handful of times, "Cher, do you have any other shoes in your closet besides tennis shoes and Birkenstocks or flip-flops?" I say, "Yeah, of course."  They say, "Time to break 'em out."  HA! As soon as I finish plugging in today's episode -- I'm going to look for a pair of these SPANX leather looking leggings for MOI.  Starting with Steph's tip of checking out Ebay first! Thank you, Steph, for keeping us in the know with your tried-and-true insider info! QUICK QUESTION - What could someone figure out about me by the friends I've chosen? My answer -- positive, happy people who are laid back and easy to be around.  You?


HEY-HEY, AWESOME READERS! Presenting 5 for Friday! Stephanie's Chic on the Cheap column isn't in the line-up.  She's a super busy lady and time didn't permit her to write her column for today's episode. She asked that I relay to Daymaker Readers that Stephanie's Chic on the Cheap will be back next Friday and she's working on an exciting column about her new found discovery of Spanx faux leather leggings!   Sounds like a wanna-be-in-the-know about these Spanx leggings to me! Steph always keeps us in the cool-kids-fashion-club.  Thanks, girl! Here's our fun episode today:


Greetings wonderful readers!  Happy Friday! Only 4 days until the fun-magic-eve when kids dress up and do the trick or treat thing.  Do you get trick-or-treaters?  I don't.  But I always buy a bag of candy in case the doorbell rings and I won't disappoint. Great line-up today: Beginning with Stephanie's Chic on the Cheap ideas for pairing a flannel shirt with these super innovative fashion ideas! Using a hair flat iron to quickly iron the button up part of a shirt?  LOVE IT! And,  yes, I love a flannel shirt - and, yes, I am totally gonna do and wear all 3 of Steph's ideas this fall and winter.  Beginning with the leopard print under a flannel to bring out the "flanimal" in my day!


GREETINGS FROM CHERYL I can barely believe it's already FRIDAY!  Seems like 5 hours ago it was Monday.  But, nope, not!  Ha! Time marches on for sure.  How has your week been?  Looking forward to anything extra-exciting for this coming weekend? Fabulous 5 for FRIDAY line-up today: Beginning with STEPHANIE'S CHIC ON THE CHEAP fun fashion at the Fair!  Super cool and full of heart and look at the 4 amazing women who posed and gave a little something interesting about themselves.  Daymakers!  Thanks, Ladies.  Hat tip to you all.


HELLO FRIDAY AND HELLO FRIENDS FROM CHERYL CLARSON And it's a Friday the 13th.  I'd never really given 2 thoughts about a Friday the 13th until I had one that will always be in my memory.  You can read it in my meet-and-greet in the ABOUT page on this site.  Anyway, you? Line up for this 5 for Friday is stellar! Beginning with Stephanie's Chic on the Cheap.  Gosh, Steph has it going on with her fabulous insider tips.  Thanks, Steph! Quick Question - Do I personally believe in ghosts?  Not necessarily - but I don't un-believe in them either!  I hope one doesn't ever present itself front-and-center to prove one way or the other.  To my knowledge, I've never fainted, but pretty sure I would in such a situation.  Ha 18 Thoughts is a super cool list.  I don't have a favorite take away.  All are such valuable wisdom.


Presenting 5 for FRIDAY's read this October 6. We had a crazy storm that blew through here Wednesday night.  Not just "a" storm but the threat of a possible tornado in the area. Felt a little like a white knuckle ride -- as the tornado sirens were heard loudly in the night - warnings of take cover sort of thing - this is not a test.  YIKES! My wonderful neighbors = friends had me in their thoughts.  Texting or calling -- "get in the bathroom," "make sure you have your running shoes on and your purse close ... in case ..."  "Are you okay?" "Copy."   "Copy."   "Yes."  were my responses via text. My little freeloaders (aka cats) were less than impressed with the lock-down time in the bathroom -- but they're over it now.  They have short-term memories.  Ha! Torrential rain, crazy wind, etc ... Long story short - tornado blew over our part of the world with no damage and went whipping away somewhere else.  Hopefully back up in the sky where it started! Today's line-up is packed full of happy:


HELLO SPECTACULAR READERS from Cheryl Clarson Presenting Friday September 29 Episode.  Welcome. Have a great line up today! Beginning with the pics: #1 Peppers and Papayas.  That's a lot of fun to say.  I feel stuffed peppers for dinner in my future! #2 The coolest, thriving mass planting of horse-tail reed I've ever seen.  This is a small picture piece of how this planting was growing at a Hyatt Regency resort here in Texas.  It was at least 2 blocks long.   Spectacular.  Impressive.   I LOVE this plant.  Yes, it's invasive (think bamboo) but it's such a cool plant kept under watch.  I have several at my home - but in planters, so they don't wander where they please. #3 Sandwich pic - I think we'll name it the ham-zing-a-roonie!  This sandwich is delicious!  How to assemble it is in this episode.  Make it.  Doubt you'll be disappointed.  I know I'm not and those I have made it for either.


GREETINGS FRIENDS AND HELLO FRIDAY! FROM CHERYL CLARSON Welcome to 5 for Friday on this Friday September 22 -- day before the official day of the Autumn Equinox! I don't know what the last day of summer is doing in your part of the world -- but here -- Summer is not going out without a very well noted reminder that She is Summer and she is hot.  It's super warm here today. Today's line up is a lot of fun:
