Getting Brave These Days!!

No, I'm not a brave person and I can't believe that I'm actually going to do it and go out for a design team. So this post is mainly to put some of my layouts on so that can check them out. So cross your fingers!!

Here are a few layouts that I've done. The pictures aren't that great, but haven't figured out how to take good pictures of layouts, so this is the best I've got for now!! lol I should try using my scanner again, but I love lumpy layouts and lumpy doesn't scan very well at all for me.

Oh My!! Been A Bad Blogger!

I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since I've posted. I keep thinking about doing it, but for reason haven't taken the time. I've been playing with my camera again, but I'm still not happy with my pictures. Think I need to save up for a nicer camera and hope it helps and doesn't turn out to be me!! lol

Been busy working the last few weeks, which is good because I never know when I'm actually getting work, so I'll take it when I can. Now getting paid is another thing, still haven't gotten paid for work in August, but hopefully on the 20th. Keep your fingers crossed!! I've also been working on selling Avon, but coming along kind of slow. I'm not as aggressive as I need to be, but need to work on it. I've got a few customers, but would like more of course!!

Haven't been doing much of anything lately. Have gotten a few new things for the yard for our Halloween scene. I'll try to remember to take pictures again this weekend and post them. I still haven't been out to take pictures of the 4 new headstones either, but I'll make sure I do it his weekend for sure. I have other pictures I need to take to, so I'll do them all at the same time.

Been thinking about trying out for a design team too, but still thinking about it. I don't know why I'm struggling with the thought of it, probably the total rejection of it all. The one I'm thinking about is going to be a Project Runway type competition, rather than just anonymous people choosing people and then just posting the winner. So my projects will be voted on weekly for I believe 4 weeks and each week people will be getting kicked off. I've only watched Project Runway one time and it's a lot of pressure!! lol I should just suck it up and go for it. I'm one of those that is my own worst critic and never happy with what I've done and not just in scrapbooking, in all aspects of my life!! Yes, I'm one of those. But I'll decide by this weekend and probably end up doing it in the end unless I talk myself out of it by then. Those are the other pictures I'm supposed to take this weekend, my scrapbooking pages and projects I've done to see if I even qualify for design team!! Will keep you up to date on what I decide. If you come back and there's a bunch of pictures posted, that could mean I decided to do it!! Cross your fingers just in case!!

This Saturday Sara is coming to spend the day with us, her boyfriend is away on business and it's a good weekend for her to spend quality time with her dad!! We talked about going to Apple Hill and see if it works out. I've only been there once and it was 14 years or so years ago. If nothing else it'll be a good day out and hopefully fun.

I've gotten a few of the inside Halloween decorations out, but only a few. I've made some of them and I did take some pictures today, but they're not that good, but I will post them anyway though.

This is the lid of a paint can I painted about 5 years ago. The candy is actually white, don't know why it's showing up pink, must be my mastery with the camera! lol

This is a shot of one of the sides, couldn't get a good picture of the whole thing for some reason. The flash kept glaring off of it and when I went to a less lite area or used no flash then it was too dark, so this is the best picture I got.

These were some coasters I made out of terra cotta pot bottoms. I made a bunch of these for gifts, but mine are the only Halloween ones. The ones I made as gifts I were unique to each person that I gave them to. Of course I didn't take any pictures of any of the other ones that I made.

That's all I've got for now, but will be back this weekend!!

Talk to you later!
