Ummm yeah….

I didn’t think it had been that many days since I was by here hahaha. Oh my, the time is going by too fast. Maybe there is just too much going on at the moment. Creeping up on A’s wedding in less than 2 weeks. I still don’t have a dress or shoes or hair done or,Ā  well, anything. I guess I truly will always be the queen of procrastination! I did get the place for the rehearsal dinner set. It’s a nice little coffee shop here in town and a lovely place to sit and eat and talk.

We had homecoming week at school last week and some super fun dress up days. Monday was 50’s/60’s, Tuesday was 70’s, Wednesday’s was 80’s/90’s, and Thursday was senior citizens day. Our dept always has the best participation! We didn’t get a group photo every day, but here are a couple from the 80’s and senior citizens day

It’s a lot of fun and the kids really get in to it as well.

In the scrappy world, I guess I have some catching up to do on posting. I can’t say enough about how much I love my designers! They are all so great and creating for them is truly a pleasure!

One bit of sad news first. Dear sweet Loni aka Zoliofrope is retiring šŸ˜¦ I will miss her amazing templates but love her for making the decision to put her family first and be the best she can be. She does have a great sale going on right now!

And now for the rest of what I’ve been lucky enough to work with the last couple of weeks!

Back on track

Working on getting back on track with this. No guarantee it will work this time but we will see how it goes! Monday down and Tuesday in the books. Still working on a place to have a rehearsal dinner and I so do not have time for places that do not return my phone calls UGH. I honestly will be glad when the month of October is over. I’m not looking forward to winter or the colder weather, but it is just way too hectic right now! I’m looking forward to a little down time. The last couple of days have brought rain and more rain, but some nice thunderstorms as well. I hate to see them go until spring. The other good thing about the rain is that it forces me to stay inside and get things done around the house.

I thought I’d take a little time to share some scrappy stuff. Maybe if I spread it out, it won’t be so daunting and I won’t put it off quite as much haha

Today is Featured Favorites at Pixels and Company, which means 50% off some absolutely beautiful kits and things! Here is a page I did with Happy Halloween by Anita Designs and Bookplate n5 by Sabrina’s Creations

Getting back on track

I am really going to work on getting back on track here. This month may be more difficult for me because the wedding stuff is upon us! Two bridal showers down and two weddings to go. We had my future daughter-in-law’s shower on Friday and they got lots of nice things. Next week is my niece’s wedding and then we have 3 weeks to do all the final preparations for my son’s wedding, including find me a dress *ugh*. In the meantime, I am just working and trying to keep my sanity.

Keeping up with scrapping helps keep me sane, but I am falling way behind on my Project Life. I am hoping to remedy that later today. I might have to do more writing than photos in there because I still don’t have a working cell phone camera and I’ve only had my new DSLR for a couple of weeks. We’ll see how it comes together.

I know I say it all the time, but I create for some amazing designers. I am in awe week after week of the beautiful stuff that they come up with. This week is no exception.

TGIF

Fridays don’t mean a whole heck of a lot on summer vacation, but well, it’s still Friday šŸ™‚ Just got finished updating my Scrap Pages and man, there was some gorgeous stuff to play with this week. Credits are attached to all of them so you can find all the goodness!! I am almost caught up on Project Life. I have to do last week’s page and this week over the weekend. I’ll get that updated in the next day or so.

Summer is quickly winding down. The schools here in this area have already gone back, so I am glad that I teach down the road a bit! We have several things going on the next few days. I go with A and C to Roanoke tomorrow to get their tuxes for the wedding. THAT should be interesting. I told C that on Monday we would head to Pipestem State Park and go horseback riding. He has never been on one, so that should be interesting, too! We also need to get in a few more pool trips before the summer is over! I have to go to work on Wed of next week for some training…yuck! I finally got my hair done yesterday after 7 months and it feels so much better!

I shared a fun pic on Facebook for Throwback Thursday yesterday, so I thought I would share it here as well. I miss my dad.

This was taken in 1996 at Smith Mountain Lake, VA. My parents owned a condo there and we spent a lot of time in the summers at that place. Yes, this is what my dad liked to do for fun – hang my children from curtain rods LOL He was the best!

I’m out of here for now. It’s a rainy day and I have some errands to run. Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
