Tuesday Already!

Holiday weekends are really nice, but Tuesday now feels like Monday and this week is going to just fly by. Hope everyone had a safe and fun weekend.

Did do some scrapbooking this weekend, but not near as much as I wanted to. I had such a big mess that I had to take some time out and clear it off. I did find a few things that I was missing, so that's always a good thing. I'm still working on items for the 2 design teams that I want to try out for, so please wish me luck. One of them could even lead to a paying job, so really wish me luck on that one!!

Hoping to get everything done this week and will be trying my best. I knew I was slow, but now I believe I'm beyond slow, I think about everything just way too much. I put stuff down, leave, come back, look at it again and either decide to move some things or glue it down. Does everyone do this or am I just crazy!!!

So I should be keeping myself busy coming up with one more project and putting the finishing touches on what I've almost got done. Will post a couple progress pictures in a couple of days, but not sure if I can post the project pictures until after I hear if I've made the DT's or not. Keep everything crossed for me please!!

Talk to you soon!

Busy, Busy, Busy Again!!

It's been a few days, a few days too many since I've posted, life is just happening all over the place. Have been working on stuff though, still playing with the canvas album and having a really good time. I think I'll be finished with it tomorrow, but still playing around with it. I do need to find some pictures that will go with it, that's going to be the trick.

I am also working on stuff to go out for a Design Team, it's a Cricut DT, but it's a good one to start out with. Just so happens that the canvas album I'm working on I've been using my Cricut, so win win, two birds one stone!! lol

Tomorrow I will post some pictures of what I've been working on and then I need to straighten up this room. Creativity is very messy, so I must be very creative, because I have a big big mess.

Just wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten about you, just have been really busy. If you follow me on Facebook you would know that I am having back issues that are now taking over my leg and foot. Went to physical therapy today and it seems to have worked, so I'm very happy!!

So tomorrow, I promise and have a great rest of the evening!

Crafty Saturday!

Well I've been having a crafty Saturday and enjoying the heck out of it. Don't get a lot of opportunity to just sit down and work on stuff, but took today and said that's what I'm doing all day!! But needless to say, I've been making a bigger mess, but it's so much fun. I have 'stuff' everywhere and am having to look all over for everything and of course under stuff. Still missing my pearls, but am confident I'll find them eventually (I hope).

Well here are the before pictures, which are now current pictures. If you see any pearls hiding, let me know, I still haven't found them!! lol There is another table behind me with all the Cricut stuff on it, but I'm embarrassed enough with what I'm already showing everyone.

Talk to you soon and hope you're having a great weekend!!

It's Friday!!

OMG!! This week has just flown by, I can't believe it's Friday. Sometimes I wonder where the time goes, but it's moving way to fast lately. I have had so much going on this week and I'm not even close to catching up. I did take pictures the other day of my mess, started cleaning it up and then messed it up even more. Have been doing an online mini canvas class and have everything spread out all over the place again!! I wonder if anyone can scrapbook neatly, certainly not me. I think the room is worse now than when I started cleaning it up. Oh well, I have all weekend to mess with it and the class is over tomorrow night. Even with all the stuff I have out for the class, which is a lot of stuff, I still need to go to the store tomorrow to get a few more things!! UGH!!!

Well this hasn't been the most productive week for me getting anything done. Richard has had a couple appointments and they usually end up being an all day thing. He did get his shots today, so hopefully he'll be able to see a little bit in a couple of days. I can't imagine not being able to see, but I guess you just learn to live with anything that's thrown at you.

Will be taking the pictures out of my camera tomorrow and taking pictures of my project so far. I'm loving working with this canvas from Canvas Home Basics, it's amazing and fun to work on. Angela Holt is the one giving the class and it's a lot of fun, and she has a really cute accent (TN). When I figure out how to put links on, she's going to be one of them.

Haven't had time to spend on the actual blog, but I'm not to bad at posting. Did miss a couple of days, but life does get in the way sometimes.

So I'll talk to you tomorrow and have a great weekend!

Busy Tuesday!

I've been busy organizing and getting my room ready to play, play, play! I have stuff everywhere and decided to take the time to get it all organized so I don't have to keep digging through piles looking for stuff. I did take a couple before photos and will take a couple after photos when I'm done. I have been on Facebook of course, love all my artsy friends, they're all so talented. One of them posted this link and I'm in love with the stamps and can't wait until I have the time to go and look around. It was posted by Lisa Pace and I couldn't get the link for the giveaway to work, so go to the Pink Persimmon blog at http://pinkpersimmon.typepad.com/pinkpersimmon. The giveaway is awesome and I'm hoping I'm the winner, but I'm usually not that lucky when it comes to giveaways! lol

Well I need to get back to work and I'll be back later with my progress. I seem to organize more than anything and it's starting to annoy me! lol

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.

Talk to you soon!!

Monday Monday!

It's Monday again, but had a great weekend. Spent all day Sunday in Galt with my family for Mother's Day and did have a fun day. I did have to spend all day Saturday finishing my mom's present, but did get it done and she really liked it. I wanted to more painting, but did end up using stencils. It was one of those that everything I did looked awful, so last resort was stencils. lol I also can't believe I didn't take any pictures at all yesterday and had my camera and everything. UGH!!

Today we ended up going shopping for necessities, so tomorrow I've got lots to do. I have projects scattered all over and will try to separate everything out later today so I can start in in the morning. Still trying to figure out how to change/add things to my blog, but need more alone time to get into doing that, I need to think!! I also need to go around and collect some 'buttons' from my favorite places, but that should be fun.

Well much get back to putting stuff away and then some cleaning before the making of dinner. Keeping it simple tonight, still tired from the weekend.

Have a great day and talk to you soon!

Still Updating!

I still have lots of updating to do, but need to figure it all out. I always had someone to help me put things on, but I'm trying to do it myself. Those that know me know that I'm totally computer challenged, but I do give it my all! lol I am taking pictures, finishing some projects and just trying to get organized. I always thought I was a really organized person, but I do think there is a point where you're too organized and I'm pretty sure that's where I'm at about now.

The first thing I need to do is finish my mom's Mother's Day gift, I only have until Sunday and of course I'm behind as usual. I have been getting ready for my Cricuit class that's today, so I'm using that as my excuse. hehehe So I'm sitting in my craft room typing this with everything that I need to finish all around me. One of these days I will have everything caught up, all the projects that I've needed to finish for the last 15 years..... quilts, scrapbooks, everything!!

So I hope you all have a great Friday and be back soon!

Wish me luck on my first class, hope it goes well.

Resurrecting My Blog!

Hey, if anyone is out there. I've been away from my blog for a long time, but it's now time to get it started back up. I have high ambitions and this is a great place to start. I have been mostly paper crafting and scrapbooking, haven't been doing much on the digital side. I do need to do some so I don't forget how!! lol I did get my Scrapbook Canary Certification (SDU) and for me that's another great start in going in the right direction. I'm still looking into getting some other certifications, but they're so expensive and not in the area. I would like to continue teaching classes and I am the paper crafts instructor at Joann's in Rocklin, but it's not exactly what I would like to do. I would like to do classes on what I like to do, my own projects, not what the store says I have to make/teach. So I've been checking out design team calls again and I am actually going to go for it! For me this is big, I've never been one to show off my work, but I'm going to start. All the design teams and pretty much everyone wants a blog and I've had this one since I began scrapbooking pretty much.

I will need some help updating it and that'll probably take some time, but I've got lots of time, just not any money!!! lol So please stay tuned and be patient, hopefully this blog will start rockin'!!

Thanks for stopping by and see you real soon!!
