Crazy days…

This week and next are probably two of the busiest of the whole  year. My goal is to be done shopping and such by next Friday when we are out of school and this weekend will be spent getting everything ready for all that goes on at my school and C’s this week. I need to do some serious catching up on wrapping and make a few gifts. I also have 2 pot lucks this week to prepare something for. This past week was spent with C’s first band concert and rehearsal. So, needless to say, not a lot of scrapping got done this past week. Actually none during the week. I hope to do some serious catching up this weekend. I have a couple of layouts to share that I managed to get done last weekend before the craziness!!

I’m going to try to catch up on some December daily pages before bed. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!! Peace, out…

From my happy place…

We are at the beach for the Thanksgiving holiday and it’s been awesome. Temperatures have been mid 70’s perfect and I got a little Christmas shopping done. I just hate that it’s about over and we are headed back to the cold, but hopefully we’ll be back soon. I thought I’d take a few minutes while I’m relaxing on our last night here to share some amazing newness in the shops this weekend. I think this is the most layouts I’ve scrapped in a week for awhile.

Check out these amazing new designs that you can still catch on sale at The Lilypad:

Hope you all have had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! I’m off to see what else I can get in to this weekend! Peace, out…

Seriously…

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.

This is BYOC week at The Lilypad, and oh my at the goodness!! Here’s my pages

New, new, new…

Staying up to date as much as I can right now 🙂 It will be nice when football season is over and I have my evenings back again. But until I do, I will make the best of it and get here when I can. We spent the afternoon with football games and our team lost pretty badly. I’m not sure what all they are doing wrong, or what they are doing right. Hopefully they will get it all together.

In digi-land, there are some fabulous new releases this week and I had the privilege of working with the best!!

First up, Danyale teamed up with Studio Basic this week for one amazing collab – Everyday Brave. I am so in love with this one!!!

This it for today. I am off to update my planner and hopefully try to get back here tomorrow to share what I’ve been up to with that lately. I also need to do some catch up work on my Life in Pockets. Hope you have a fantastic Saturday night!! Peace, out…

Oh Life…

How you have a way of keeping me from blogging hahaha. Yep, I’ve been away for a bit. I think I just needed a break from being at the computer so much. Other than keeping up with my CT obligations and scrolling through FB occasionally, I haven’t been on line all that much. We’ve been doing things in the time before school started, and then there has been football practice…every day, and games, and life. Now that work and school have started, I am trying to get some order and organization in my life and coming here, I hope, will be a part of it. I’m not going to post all the pages that I’ve done over the last few weeks, but I have updated My Scrap Pages with all of them and I hope to have my Life in Pockets updated by tomorrow. I still have a couple of weeks to catch up on there. I also have some planner updates to share and what I hope will be #plannerpeace. Maybe.

I am going to share my latest layouts and then hopefully from here on out I’ll be back on a more regular schedule…and with some other things, too.

Busy, busy…

Yeah, summer is still happening here. Football practice started right after my last post and it is two hours a day, every day. It seems like we no sooner get up, get chores done, and eat, then it’s time to head out to practice. Such is the life. I have two more weeks of summer vacation and I already see the days filling up with things that need to be done. I’m determined that we will squeeze some fun in there! But I’m not going to dilly-dally here. I’m just going to drop off some pages so you can see what I’ve been up to and the gorgeousness from my amazing designers and then I’m off to bed to start all over tomorrow.

Yeah, so…

What happened was…summer. I’m feeling like I haven’t been very productive, but I have managed to clean out a few rooms and do some fun things. C and I ended up taking off for the beach, just the two of us. R was hoping for a phone call about a new job and didn’t want to leave, so since it would be the only chance for us to go because of football starting, C and I jumped in the car about mid-week and took off for a few days. It was really nice to spend some time together and do a lot of the things that he and I like to do. Since we’ve been back, I’ve just been catching up on some things around the house and hitting the pool and a few baseball games. And we’ve been playing a lot of Pokemon Go! It’s about to get crazy here again, so I’m not sure that productivity will happen this summer ha. Football practice starts tomorrow, I have to go in to work on Thursday, and I need to start doing some pre-work stuff before school starts.

I haven’t even scrapped all that much, but here are the pages I have managed to get done 🙂

Newness…

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!

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!!

Newness and some prayers…

Before I get in to all the amazing new designs that are on sale this weekend, I want to take just a second to ask for prayers for so many people here in the state of WV. 44 of 55 counties are currently under a state of emergency due to devastating flooding in some parts of the state. Last I heard, 20 people are dead and many have lost their homes. It’s so sad. This all happened just an hour or two north of where I live and many are still trapped. Thoughts and prayers would be appreciated.

Now on to some good news. I have quite a few layouts to share for this week. So many amazing kits and collections on sale!

Just a Quickie…

I really intended to post a few days ago, but time once again slipped up on me. I’ve been spending the last week or so getting ready for the little guy’s birthday. I might even try to post some of those photos…try. I didn’t get my layouts for last Friday shared while they were still on sale, but I will put them at the end of this post. These kits are awesome, on sale or not.

I thought I would come by real quick tonight while SOSN at The Lilypad is still going on. There’s some gorgeous stuff 50% off!! I have totally enjoyed my time as a guest Polly and hate to see it come to an end after this month. Here’s what you can find in the shop and on sale today only!!
