There’s something refreshing about a new month. Time to start over, start fresh. Here we are in November. As much as I dread the cold weather cBOYoming, part of me loves this time of year and starting to think about the holidays. Football is over now and we have our evenings back again. Maybe with the new month and more time, I can spend more time here.
What a great weekend it is in digiscrapping!! Designers never cease to amaze me with new and gorgeous creations!!
One day this space will become habit for me. Just when I think I’m on a roll, life throws a curve ball and I’m behind again. This time it’s for the best of reasons, though. I have a beautiful new grandson! He is absolutely precious and I adore him! I got the call on my way to work last Friday, so we spent the weekend either at the hospital or at football. This week it is raining and chilly, so I am spending some time getting caught up on all the neglected things. Football was cancelled and I was finally able to go get my hair done.
I’ve uploaded all my layouts for the last few weeks to My Scrap Pages, but I’m not going to share them all here today. Go check them out if you’d like…credits are on each page.
Ummmm, how did it get to be July already? I feel like I blinked and June was gone! If we are accomplishing anything with this summer break, it’s relaxing. We’ve done that very well!
Just stopping by today to share the newness that you can find in the digi-world this weekend. There’s still time to grab them on sale!
I am off to do some organizing on the computer and post updates to my Life in Pockets. I finally got all caught up with that. I hope to get some Planner pics and update that as well. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday and a happy, safe 4th of July!!
I also had the awesome opportunity to work on a new project – Project Grateful, a monthly collaboration from some incredibly talented designers. This month’s is Project Grateful – Homemade, and it is fantastic!
Yep, it’s been awhile. I honestly have thought about coming by every day, and then every day something comes up and this blog just sits. I am working on a few changes to my routine and life that will hopefully help me to become better organized and keep up with this a bit better as well. Streamlining, if you will. School has been out for a week now, and baseball is over as well. I have spent most of this week getting ready for C’s birthday. He has not always had the best of birthdays. My dad and my father-in-law both passed away within the week surrounding his birthday, so I’m trying to make this one a little extra special. There won’t be a lot of people, but I’m hoping he will love it just the same. I’ll share photos when it’s over. Next week, we will get in to the fun stuff, like pool time!
I’m pretty much keeping up with scrapping time as well, and my Life in Pockets is only behind by a week! I do want to share that Etc. by Danyale is closing her shop at SO and is having one fantastic sale! Make sure you get by there and grab up some of her goodies at ridiculously low prices!
I didn’t do a whole lot of scrapping this past week, but I did manage to get in a few pages. Here’s some of what’s new:
I’ll also be updating my Life in Pockets later this evening or tomorrow. Traci Reed’s Pocket Life for June hits the store, and it is awesome!!
Well, I’m in it kind of deep this morning. My PC decided to blue screen on me twice in the last couple of days, so I decided it was time for a long over-due reformat. I’ve had this computer for about 2 years and never done a good hard reformat, but I’ve put it off simply because I did not want to got through setting it all back up. Since all baseball stuff was cancelled for the weekend, and I had a bit of time, I figured it was as good a time as any. We are only going to get busier! Now, here I am, deep in re-installation hell!
I figured I would take a minute out and come share layouts for this weekend before I go any further and before I face-palm because there was something I forgot to back up (it always happens).
If and when I get my Photoshop re-installed and running, I will catch up on my Life in Pockets pages. I’m a couple of weeks behind, but it shouldn’t take me long to get caught up. Wish me luck as I go in deeper! Have a great rest of the weekend. Peace, out…
Yeah, I’ve been away for a bit, but it is that crazy busy time of year. IEP season is in full swing, I’m finishing up work for a class I’ve been taking this semester, and C started baseball. Not to mention the fact that the weather is better and I just don’t want to be inside as much! Just thought I would cruise by and update all my pages. I’m getting ready to work on the latest PL pages, but here are the rest of the pages I’ve done since I’ve been away
Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend. I’ll try to update sooner next time! Peace, out….
Yeah, so it’s been a couple of weeks and yeah, same ole busy, busy, busy. I am taking a class this semester and, every little bit of weekend time that I’ve had, I’ve spent working on stuff for the class. It’s interesting stuff, if you like classes on teaching methods, but between that and the usual spring IEP, paperwork, testing, etc, I don’t have much “free” time. We have a 4 day weekend going on right now. That is the extent of our “Spring Break”. I am so envious of those who get a whole week off, but we are on the countdown to the end of the year! I’m also tackling a pretty big project in my time off…painting all my kitchen cabinets. They’ve needed an update for a long time. I got about half way through yesterday and will probably get the other half tomorrow. Today, we are going to color eggs and go to mom’s for dinner.
We got C all signed up for baseball a couple of weeks ago and he had try outs last week. We heard from the manager of the team yesterday and he will get to be #45 (Michael Jordan’s baseball number). Their team is the Giants and we have our meet and greet on Tuesday evening.
I haven’t had a chance to see it in person yet, but M now has a house of her own! I have informed her that she now must come and get all of her stuff haha. I’m dreaming of a craft room! But all of that will probably have to wait until summer, when I have the time to do it.
I have managed to get in some scrapping the last couple of weeks, and pretty much keep up with my weekly spreads. I’ve updated both galleries, but here are some of the pages I’ve managed to squeeze in…
Thanks for having a look and hope everyone has a happy and blessed Easter! Peace, out…
You know, the really really busy ones! Monday was mom’s 77th birthday so we headed over to her house with cake and presents to celebrate. We ended up staying a bit longer than planned while I set her up a Facebook account. Yikes! I’m not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing…time will tell I guess! She had been telling me about some of her old friends hounding her about getting on Facebook and then said “If I don’t hurry up, all my friends will be dead!” hahaha. Oh, mom.
Tuesday was C’s last basketball game. We were hoping it wouldn’t be, but they ended up losing by one point in yet another really poorly officiated game, but I digress. So, I spent Wednesday catching up on everything that didn’t get done Monday and Tuesday.
Thursday was Randy’s 45th, so more cake and present getting happened. I got him the set of headlight covers that he wanted for “Cammie” (his Camaro). And Friday, he spent the evening with her, while I did NOTHING, thankfully!
And so now here we are. I didn’t even get much scrapping done last week and I am a couple weeks behind on my Life in Pockets pages. Hoping to get caught up on those week as I am anticipating fabulous new goodies to play with!
Still there some great new releases this week!
If you are a geek like me, then you totally knew that yesterday was Pi Day, and a once in a lifetime one at that. Etc. by Danyale has an awesome bundle deal with her It’s a Theory Kit and new Perfectly Geeky. I paired it up with Cheryl’s new Fuss Free: Banner of Love templates.
And last but certainly not least. Valorie Wibbens has a brand new set of templates out this weekend – Topography No. 27. I absolutely adore her templates, they are so unique and so awesome. I used her For Like Ever Papers and Sprinkles V33.
Now we get a bit of rest and gear up for our first year of baseball. Hopefully, I’ll keep up with it all! Peace, out…
Yep, snow day #10…and I am just going to leave it at that!
Taking time out of my doing nothing to swing by and share round one of new releases in digiscrap this weekend! As usual, these designers have outdone themselves!
First up is this beautiful mini kit by Val C. Designs called ArtBook – Beautiful and available at Oscraps.
