It's Monday Again!

I can't believe how time flies! It's been 2 weeks since I got sick and yesterday was the first day I actually felt halfway human. Richard has been sick a few days longer, but he's feeling pretty good now. This is the worst flu I've ever had and don't wish it on anyone! I've got so much laundry and housework to catch up on (Yuck)!

So it's going to be a slow week for me. Had to cancel my National Scrapbooking Day festivities because it's a lot of work and I don't think I'll be up to it by Saturday. My cousin Jimmy will be here this weekend from New York and am hoping that I'll be able to see him though. I miss him terribly and it's always such a kick to see him. One of these days I hope I can make it to New York to see him. I've never been there and it's on top of my list of places to go!

Must catch up on some work around the house. Running in slow motion still, so it's taking forever.

Have a Beautiful Day!!

It's a Beautiful Day Outside!!

It's Tuesday and a beautiful Day outside today. I'm just working away and putting around the house trying to get some things done. Need to take pictures today of some projects to send out for different challenges and come up with some ideas for the online crop for National Scrapbooking Day at It'll keep me busy for a few days, plus I'm doing a couple articles for the monthly newsletter. If you couldn't tell I spend a lot of time there and am trying to help promote it in any way that I can. There are so many wonderful and talented people there. It's like home to me, which is pretty sad!! lol

So hopefully my camera will cooperate today and I'll post a few projects that I finally finished today. Tried to take them last night, but the lighting was horrible and all the pictures turned out really dark.

So check back later and I should have some new pictures!!

Monday Monday!!

I can't believe it's already Monday! The weekends always fly by so fast. Didn't get a lot done this weekend. Tried to scrap but we all know how that goes sometimes. Did get my cards done for the challenges, but that's about it.

The Nascar race was on Saturday night this week and my team did horrible, I came in last place out of 96! I take my Nascar seriously and couldn't believe how bad my drivers did. There's always next week.

Have a Great Day and Happy Scrapping!!

Be back soon.........

You've Got to Love Fridays!!

It's Friday and it's a beautiful day outside. Been out watering already this morning and just enjoying the sunshine.

This weekend is going to be another scrapbook weekend. Yeah!! I haven't hardly ever been able to have fun on the weekend because I was always working. Now that I'm currently not typing and working on another employment opportunity, I've got my weekends free. I don't make much money, but I get weekends off and that's worth the extra money. lol

Most of what I've been working on has been for challenges and the card a day challenge for, so I can't post them here because they have to go on the challenge first. I've made 4 cards already and for me that's big! I've never really done cards other than at a class when someone (usually Melody) gives me a sample and all the stuff to make the card. I'm not a creative person so this is a definite challenge for me. I haven't been happy with all of them so far, but I've really liked one of them.

I am making a huge mess though. I have paper, cardstock, embellishments, and chipboard all over the place. I have to find the perfect items for each card and it's hard to decide sometimes, so I have everything out and everywhere. I have 2 six foot tables and 1 four foot table out and they are all pretty much full of everything imaginable (this is not counting what's on the floor in a tote).

Well have a Great weekend and will post my creations soon!! lol

Monday Here Again!

OMG!! I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted anything. Some people blog better than others and I guess I'm one of the others.

Been scrapping alot and working on a few projects and cards for challenges. I finally finished one challenge for IScrap and posted it on time! For me that's a great feat, I'm never on time. I made the book, took the pictures, printed the pictures and put the book together! I'm tickled that I got it done, but need to vamp it a little bit more. I couldn't seem to find exactly what I was looking for, so I'm sure I'll be making some changes eventually when the right items catch my eye.

Well back to work, got things to do today. I'll be finishing more projects all week and will post the pictures here, so come back and see what I've been up to!!

Here is a picture of the first April challenge, mini-book, Spring Has Sprung.

Today is a Good Day!

Made it through April Fools Day without incident, that's a big one. No one got me at all or even tried that I know of!!

My National Scrapbooking Day Crop is coming together and even have people signed up to come! We had a small group last year, but my space is limited and don't think we could have handled more. Hope it turns out well, I'm such a worrier!!

Have been doing lots of card making and scrapbooking. Need to take some good pictures and I'll post them here. I think I'm finally getting the hang of taking pictures of items, but still have a ways to go. The kitchen is so far the best place to take them, go figure.

I did finally put some pictures on Craigslist for some scrapbooking stuff that I have for sale. I put it in the Sacramento Craigslist Arts and Crafts section. It only lets you put 4 pictures on, so I need to do more posts! I have so much stuff from Leaving Prints and Scrap-In-A-Snap that I would love to sale. I've been pretty much using the TLC stuff for my own use, but still have a lot to sale.

Hope you're all having a good week so far! It's Hump Day so you're halfway to the weekend already.

Come back again, I may have pictures up in the next day or two!
