Just a Quick Hello

Hi everyone. I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I can't believe how tired I am from just getting my room ready this past week. I was watching the Discovery Channel this morning and it said, "tune in next month" for some show. And it hit me that we are almost to August. How fast this year went by. My boys are getting older everyday and there is nothing I can do to stop it. My husband will be 30 in November. It is so unbelievable how fast time flies.

I just wanted to say a quick hello since I will be really busy this week. I'm going to get my room ready Monday, and Tuesday. I will be out of town Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. We might possibly go to Navajo Lake Saturday and Sunday. Then school starts Monday...Wolfie will be in 1st grade. Wow.

I hope you are all finding time to scrap. I swear I will post a contest soon. My friend just had her baby last night...a little girl and I'm so excited for her. I don't want to exclude her from the contest as she will be so busy with the new little one. All of my other friends are teachers too, and we're busy with the start of the year. Please anyone if you have questions, or requests, let me know by leaving a comment. I will try to get some scrapbooking done. I am so unmotivated to work on my kids albums but I have to do something. Enjoy your week. I will post if I am able too.

Work is not fun

I have been busy the last 4 days so that is why I have not posted. I started work on Monday with a three day workshop. I thought workshops were supposed to be more helpful. After attending, I'm just more confused than ever. Today, I went to set up my classroom. The janitors cleaned my room, and the furniture was everywhere. So I drug all of the bookcases and tables and everything back into place. It was so exhausting. I have all of the major furniture placed except for my table because the filing cabinent is in the way and there is just no way I can move it by myself. Anyhow...I was so tired, and I couldn't bare to stay another two hours while the kids napped. I came up with the bright idea of picking them up and then going home to take a nap. It sounded so fun.

Well, we got home and JoJo insisted on walking into the house. So I put him down. I shut the car door and then I heard crying, because JoJo decided the car muffler looked like something that needed to be grabbed. So of course he burned his hand and was screaming hysterically. Did I get my nap? No I did not because I had to take him to the doctor and get him all bandaged up. He is doing better, and the burn wasn't serious. He does look funny with his bandage so I will take pictures of it and him and post them.

As an aside why is it while I'm on duty Maddox has managed to break his collar bone, Wolfie busted his chin open, and JoJo grabbed a muffler? I swear I'm not neglectful.

I haven't gotten any scrapbooking done. When I do, I will post it. Take care.

Mini Album Part 2

I finished the mini album as promised!!! I finally got some adhesive to get the job done. I think it turned out pretty good for my first attempt. I think that as time allows, I will do some blank ones and offer them for sale. You just add your own pictures. Or, if you want me to make one with photos, I could do that too. I used products from Cosmo Cricket, Basic Grey, Pebbles, American Crafts, and Ranger. They are all available here.

We had a "date" last night. It was an enjoyable night. Erik suprised me with a really pretty watch. I needed one since the kids got their hands on the other one. We went to eat at Ruby Tuesday. After dinner we went to see Bruno. It was really funny, and graphic. I loved Borat so, there you go. I think I will have my mom watch it when it comes out on DVD. Unless, her and my brother go to see it at the show. Warning, it is not for the faint-hearted, or easily offended.

I am still working on a contest. I should get a sketch posted sometime this week. I do go back to school on Monday. I am sad, sad, sad. I really enjoyed staying home, and having time to get creative. The contest will be open to anyone in the continental U.S. I will ship the prize, if you win, to you. So, I just have to find a good prize, and a fun sketch. The wheels are turning. Talk to you later. Happy Saturday and Scrapping!

Do you like the New Look?

I didn't get a chance to finish the mini album. Due to the fact that I ran out of adhesive. You can't really get much done without that. I will make a trip to Hobby Lobby and get some ASAP. So, I decided if I couldn't get creative with scrapping, that I would do it with my blog. You may have noticed that the blog looks a little different. I think it looks rather cute myself. Please feel free to leave comments, or sign up to follow my blog. I will be posting a contest soon, hopefully by Monday. This post will be short because I have to go get ready. Erik and I are going on a date for our anniversary. The 21st is the real day, but that's during the week. It's been 8 years married. Wow, it went by fast. I think it's because of all the kids. You get so busy with the little animals. Well, good afternoon everyone. Have a wonderful weekend.

Summer is Winding Down

Summer is winding down for me. I have to go back to work on Monday and leave the kids at daycare. I really have enjoyed staying home this summer and it will be sad to not see all of the fun things they do each day. It seems that once work gets started that it is so busy. I just hate that I have to start back before July is even over :(

I promise, I am feverishly working on my mini album. I finally got all of the pictures printed. I have absolutely no idea what is going on with my computer because it has been running so slow today. It won't download anything. I finally gave up in frustration. Why do computers always do this to you? I will try to finish the album and post it by tomorrow.

How about this? I was thinking of having a contest on my blog. You guys would complete a layout. After completing the layout, you would email it to me. I would post it on my blog and everyone could vote for their favorite. The winner would get a prize. Let me know what you think. Well, I guess that is all for now. Let me know about the contest.

Mini Album Part 1

Good Afternoon. Yesterday, as mentioned before, I took the boys to the Doctor. Maddie and JoJo had to get shots. They did so good. No one cried. Maddie got 4 shots. All he said was "Ow" The nurses were impressed, and frankly so was I because I had tears in my eyes and no one even got near me with a needle. I really hate shots...I mean I really, really hate them. This morning, though, Maddie came limping slowly out of his room. It was funny. That sounds evil, but you didn't see it. Plus, also, I thought, "Wow this should be an easier day as he is slightly subdued." He's doing better now. Back to his old self.

So, I started a Mini-Album. I'm sharing the stuff I got done today. It is not complete, but I thought I would share what I have so far. At first, I thought, "Wow this looks pretty bad. I will never show this to anyone." But it got better as I started adding more stuff to it. It's not the greatest. Keep in mind that it is not finished. I will try to finish it this week. Tomorrow, I will be in TorC. So I won't be posting, probably. I definitely won't be able to scrapbook :(

Just in case you are interested, these are the products I used for the Mini-Album. They are all available Here. Cosmo Cricket Chipboard Albums Basic Grey Cardstock

And for some reason I couldn't get the picture to show up. Pebbles Chips

Letter Stickers are from American Crafts and of course my favorite, Ranger Distress Inks
Enjoy your afternoon. Talk to you all later.

Just a Quick Post

Hello Everyone. I hope your weekend was good. We had a good time at the crop. Didn't get too much done...we were busy talking. But, it was nice to hang out with no kids. I really don't have much time. I'm off to take the kids to the doctor for their annual checkups. Not fun. Anyway, I didn't have time to load pictures of projects so I will leave you with just a few of my most favorite things from Basic Grey and they are also found Here. I love basically all of it. See you tomorrow.

Where have I been?

Well, hello everyone. Sorry for not updating. I've been really busy reading the Twilight Saga. I finished all of the books. I really love them. They are great. Now, I can cross off a few books from my list. I truly hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July weekend. We had a lot of fun. We had a birthday party for JoJo's second birthday. I can't believe he is already 2. I am going to make a mini album of the event. Wish me luck...I've never made one before. I will post pics when I finish.
I hope you all will come to my Crop tomorrow. It's from 10:00-3:00 at my house. We will have tons of fun. Bring all of your pictures and get a lot of stuff done. I will have a couple of punches, and my cricut for you to use. Plus, if we have an order total of $200 someone will get $20 of free products of their choosing. So, see you there...and if not enjoy your weekend.

Happy 4th of July

I made a few little projects yesterday and today. The first are the envelopes I made. What I did was opened up a 3x5 envelope and traced it onto patterned paper. Then I cut the envelope shape out, scored it at the folds, and taped it together. Personally, I think they are so cute and they were really easy to make. The second is a tag I made for the 4th of July. I embossed the stars (yes, they're stars) and then went over the entire tag with the Ranger Distress Inks. Very easy.

I now have a new Facebook Page. So now I guess I am up with the times. I will put an album up there with all of my projects. This may take awhile as my computer is so slow at uploading photos.
My crop is on July 11, 2009 from 10:00-3:00. So far 7 people are signed up to attend. Please make sure and let me know if your coming. Either email me or leave a commment here. Also I am here to help, so please let me know if there is anything you want me to demonstrate. I will be happy to share.
I hope you all have a wonderful and safe 4th of July. Tomorrow is JoJo's Birthday Party. So, I will be very busy. Make sure to stop by next week for more posts.
