Sales and more sales…

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a traditional dinner on Thursday with all the kids and one of the grandkids. The other two were at their other parents’ house and we missed them.

Are you a Black Friday shopper? I’m not so much. I don’t like the crowds and the parking and all that jazz, but I have been trying to scoop up deals online as I find them. I don’t have any particularly spectacular ones to share, except in the digi-scrapping community! Yes, there are Black Friday sales there, and they are not to be missed. Along with some upcoming Cyber Monday sales! Here are just a few of the things you  can pick up this weekend:

Until next time, peace, out…

Most Wonderful Time…

I know I’ve mentioned before that I am not a fan of cold weather, winter, snow, any of that stuff. The shorter days can really get me down. But, there are a couple of things that keep me going through a lot of those days. One of those is my December Daily project. I just added a page here on the site for it and my cover page is done. I’ve also been working on some foundation pages so that I have it all ready to go when December starts. I’m trying to do a couple of pages a day, so that come December 1st, all I have to remember to do is take the photos. I talk a little bit about my process and other ways of going about it in this thread – DYD Sizes and Styles – at The Lilypad. I may come back one day soon and share a little more detail here. Everything I’ve used is from the Document Your December section of The Lilypad store. You can also check out what I’ve done in previous years in the December Daily section here on the blog.

For now, here’s my cover for this year:

Ha I honestly did not think it had been almost a month since I last posted! Not quite sure what happened but it sure feels like I have been super busy every single day. Just dropping by today to share some fantastic new releases for this week!

Hello Friday…

Happy Friday!! Friday evenings are a favorite of mine. It is the one day of the week that we just do a lot of nothing. No homework, no chores, no cooking…just relaxing, maybe scrapping or movie watching. This Friday was a bit different because we had the day off due to some pretty significant flooding in the county where I teach. I feel so bad for all those who were affected by it. There were several campgrounds close to the river that were completely under water. I spent the day cleaning the house so that I can enjoy the rest of the weekend. I seriously need to spend as much time as possible catching up on Project Life! I am so many weeks behind and there’s so much more amazing, fun stuff coming up!

I thought I would jump on tonight and share the new releases for this week, and then hopefully be back to share some PL pages as I finish them!

What the…

Trying to wrap my brain around where the last two months have gone! Wow! I barely even remember them passing. Everything at work was just crazy. I finished up a class, had another project to complete, and held tons of meetings. Baseball season was a blur. Chance’s team didn’t do very well, but he had a great time and that’s all that matters. He really loves the game. School ended last Friday and since then I’ve been cleaning out rooms and prepping for a yard sale tomorrow. They are so much work, but I will be glad to be rid of all this junk! I have a one rule when it comes to yard sales…if it goes out of the house, it doesn’t come back in. Whatever doesn’t sell, will be donated or trashed. Once this week is over, it’s really time for summer break to begin!

Other than all of that, I’ve been trying to keep up with some scrapping. I am way behind on project life, but caught up in most other areas, even though there is so much I would love to do! My Scrap Pages is up to date, so if you want to check out what I’ve been up to, you can look there.

I thought I’d drop in while I have a quick minute and share some of the fantastic new releases this weekend!

First up is Collect Moments – Storyteller June 2018 Add-on by Just Jaimee. I paired it with the TLP June Challenge Template by Lynne-Marie.

And now that crazy time is over, I hope to have more time for blogging, so I will be back soon! For now, I’m off to do a little reading before I finish setting up for the yard sale! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!! Peace, out…

April Showers…

We are having a lovely rainy day here today. Why do I say lovely? Well, for starters, it’s not snow!! And a long time ago, I was walking my daughter in to kindergarten, grumbling about the rain when she looked up at me and said, “But mommy, if it didn’t rain, there wouldn’t be any puddles to jump in”. I have never looked at rain the same since. We had a crazy busy week, so I’m taking the rain today as a sign to slow down and catch up on a few indoor things that I’ve been neglecting. Plus, I’m getting a little time to scrap and to come by here!

I wanted to take a minute to share what’s new this weekend and the layouts I’ve created!

Still Waiting…

We are over 2 weeks in to spring now, and I am still waiting to see it! I’m looking out my window right now at snow on the ground and more expected tonight. I’m so over it. We have had a few fairly nice days here and there, but no definitive spring yet. That hasn’t stopped the busy from coming though. Baseball practices have started. IEP season at work has started. And the countdown to the end of the school year has started. Sometimes it feels like the days drag and other times it feels like life is going by at lightning speed.

One of the things that brightens every month for me is BYOC at The Lilypad!! Amazing designs that all coordinate so beautifully. And if you haven’t seen this month’s, it is gorgeous!! Here are just a few sample pages by me.

I am working on catching up with Project Life. I only need to do this week’s spread, but I will be taking some photos today to add to it. I’ve got some actual work to do for my IRL job and I guess I need to make that my priority for now. Hope to be back soon with new updates! Hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful and relaxing! Until next time, peace out…..

Moving right along…

Not so much here, but in life I guess I’m moving right along. I’m taking a class this semester on Google Classroom and Google Suite, so any and all spare time I have had has been spent on that. My new year plan for posting more regularly has kind of fallen by the wayside for right now. Maybe I need to stop thinking and planning and just do.

Anyway, I thought I’d stop by before bed time tonight and share a couple of new pages for this week.

This one is using Just Jaimee’s Storyteller 2018 – March Collection! I can’t wait to see it come to life in my PL pages!

I am working on this week’s pages, but other than that my PL is up to date. I have been going back and using some older JJ templates this year, instead of the Ready to Go pages. I am kind of missing them, but looking forward to a new look in my book I just had my 2017 book printed and I am loving going through it!! Here are the last couple of weeks:

Week-6L

Week-6R

Week-7L

Hopefully I’ll be back soon. I’m hoping to get a planner update done in the next couple of days!! Thanks for looking!!

Rabbit Holes…

Ever get sucked down them? I sure do! Just about every time I sit down at the computer to do one thing, I’m off on adventures looking up a thousand different things! And that’s why I never seem to get here like I intend to! I swear, I can be going to upload a layout and next thing I know I’m looking at phone cases or reading about missing people or any other random things, but I never remember how I got there haha.

But anyway, I just wanted to pop in tonight and share some amazing new releases out this weekend and get caught up on posting my MOC layouts!

You can check out my page – MOC Pages 2018 – to catch up on all things MOC!! It’s hard to believe that it’s almost over! I am caught up through today and looking forward to the last three days of challenges!

I’m telling you, Etc. by Danyale and Little Butterfly Wings make the most beautiful babies!! They have this one out this week called Dear Karma 2: Innercircle

If I am not babysitting, I may try to swing by tomorrow and do a planner update. I haven’t done one of those for awhile! I’m out for now! Thanks for looking and I hope you have an amazing upcoming week!! Peace, out…

Sundays are for…

Relaxing, catching up, couching. That’s what Sundays are for. I haven’t gotten to the couching part yet, because DH is hogging it up! I’m going to kick him off of there soon!! But, I thought I’d take the time that I have and come by here and share some layouts for the week. It’s not to late to catch a lot of these awesome designs on sale!
