Playing Catch-Up…

I feel like I do this a lot and I’m really trying hard not to put myself in a position where I am catching up all the time! But, I can happily say that I am totally caught up on my Life in Pockets!! Now, my plan is to stay that way. I know life has a way of showing up just when I say that, but that’s my plan! I do have to say that I probably wouldn’t be caught up if it were for Just Jaimee’s Ready-to-Go Pocket Page Templates!! They have made it so easy to just pop in photos, add some journaling and be done with it. I have added and replaced some elements here and there with elements from her Storyteller Collections, but it’s been super easy! Seriously, if you are behind like I was, these are the way to go!! Here are the last few weeks pages so you can see how amazing they are:

I do love creating my own spreads and will try to do that as I stay caught up, but these are so fabulous when I just don’t have the time to do it all myself!!

Now I’m going to spend a little time getting a planner post together and scrapping a few new pages on this rainy Sunday. Hope you enjoy yours!! Peace, out…

Happy Saturday!!

And the Saturday before Christmas at that. Wow! I am almost ready. I have had a few things to do for a couple of weeks now and keep putting them off or other things get in the way. Now I am feeling crunch time. I have a couple of gifts to wrap, a couple to make, and some candy to do and I will be officially finished. I am hoping to accomplish most, if not all, of it tomorrow! Then my plan is to clean house on Monday and be ready for the holiday 🙂

I have managed to get some scrapping in the last week or so and there are some fantastic new releases this week. Here’s what I have to share:

I also have my Life in Pockets updated, but I won’t post them all here. You can head over to that page and check them out if you’d like. I’m going to work on getting my DD posted around some galleries 🙂 Hope you have a great rest of the weekend and I’ll be back as soon as I have a minute! Peace, out….

Yikes!

Been a while since I came by here and honestly, I’m not sure where the time went ha. I fully intended to blog last weekend, then I thought I would while on Thanksgiving break, but yeah, it just didn’t happen. I did update my Scrap Pages with last week’s layouts and I thought I would take a minute to swing by and share all that’s new this week. No nonsense out of me this week. Not really feeling the best today, so short and sweet. Here’s all the fabulousness in the shops that I had the privilege of working with:

Crazy busy

I thought we were going to get off easy this year with Halloween being on Saturday. Not so much. Instead, it turned in to a two day ordeal and 3x the make-up. C had to be ready for his Halloween party at school on Friday, and I played with some make-up on myself. Then, right after school, we re-did the make-up and went to work with A at the Rescue Squad’s haunted house. It was a lot of fun, but made for a really long day. We didn’t get home until about midnight. We did make-up again on Saturday for trick-or-treat. I have had my fill of candy :p

Today, we went to mom’s to celebrate my birthday a couple of days early. My sister, her husband, and one of her daughters and her husband came. But the best part was having all 3 of my kids, my daughter-in-law, and my granddaughter all together. We are so seldom any more it seems. Having grown children is different for sure. We are supposed to go out to dinner on Tuesday for my actual birthday. And Thursday is parent/teacher conferences, which means staying at work until 7. Going to be a long week!

Now to update some scrap pages from this weekend… there’s still time to catch them on sale if you hurry!

Life gets in the way…

No excuse, just haven’t been by for a bit. I haven’t really been doing anything productive, just putting things off lol. I didn’t really do that many pages last week, so I spent some time organizing some files and setting up some tracking pages so that maybe I don’t have so many sticky notes cluttering up my desk! But I do have lots of great stuff to share this week, so here I am!

This is what’s new, in stores, and on sale this week!

Valorie Wibbens has her Add-Ons to Memory Pockets Monthly:

Saturday Night’s Alright…

I kind of love Saturday nights. Not that I ever do anything really exciting, but I feel like it’s a good time to catch up with the world. And now I’m going to catch up on uploading some layouts 🙂 All of these kits are still on sale, so make sure and check them out if you get a chance.

First up is Etc by Danyale’s Chapter No. 2 – Slightly Worn. It is fantastic paired with the Lifetime Stories Collection

I have a few more pages to share, but I will come back and do that tomorrow. I also need to get caught up on my Life in Pockets. Tomorrow is supposed to be another rainy day, so it will be a great day for scrapping 🙂 Enjoy Saturday night. Peace, out…

In Deep…

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…

Ahem….

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

Holy Cow…

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…

It’s a Great Day

What an awesome day! This has to be one of my most favorite days of the whole year…Daylight Savings Time! I love the extra daylight in the evening. I just have so much more energy when I have more sunlight in my life. I get so lethargic once the sun goes down, and when that happens right after I get home from work, it’s really rather depressing.

But I didn’t really come back today to sing the praises of DST, I wanted to share my newest Life in Pockets pages. I am keeping up fairly well so far. I still have this past week to do, but hopefully I’ll get that done later today. C has basketball practice and I have to shop for my mother’s birthday, but other than that I don’t have much else to do. Thankfully, my morning does not involve shoveling or chipping ice!!

For Week 9, I used all things Valorie Wibbens – For Like Ever Papers, For Like Ever Journal Cards, and Sprinkles V33…all at The Lilypad.

Week-9-L  Week-9-R

I’ve added them to my Life in Pockets page, so everything there should be up to date! I’m on my way to work on some pages for releases coming up this week. Hope everyone has a fantastic Sunday!! Peace, out….
