What happened…

What the heck happened to February? Oh my gosh, how did an entire month get away from me. Sheesh. I’m seriously playing some catch up here. Just when I think I am getting in the groove, something happens and I’m never sure quite what. I guess I just let things get away from me. I’m hoping to be able to schedule a couple of posts today to share some things that I’m a bit behind on.

I will have all of my layouts updated on my Scrap Pages, but for now I thought I would just share what I’ve done for this weekend and goodies you can still find on sale through today!

It’s BYOC at The Lilypad! I swear, every month I just want to scrap with all the things, but time always gets the better of me. But this is what I did get to play with and the colors are so gorgeous and spring-like!

A bit busy…

Here we are at the end of January already!! Whew, it has flown by and that makes me super happy. I’m not a fan of winter at all and the faster those months go by the better. Yes, I do wish my life away when it comes to winter! The one thing that has really helped me be more positive and enthusiastic during January is MOC at The Lilypad. Seriously, having a challenge a day to focus on keeps my mind off of the dreary cold weather and gives me something to look forward to every day!! We are nearing the end now and I am all caught up with the challenges! It’s super fun! This is my 6th year participating and those layouts are some of my favorites ever! I love being challenged to try new things and learn new techniques. I have a page set up here for those layouts – MOC 2019, and honestly thought I’d get by here a little more often to share, but it hasn’t worked out that way. And you can check out the full list of challenges and their explanations here – Month of Challenges 2019.

Another reason I stopped by here is to share my layouts from this past weekend’s new releases. I ended up rearranging some furniture and babysitting this weekend and didn’t get here to post, but here they are 🙂

In with the new…

Whoa. I really thought I’d posted since the start of the new year, but I guess I haven’t. It’s been pretty busy, though. School started back on the 3rd and it’s been a bit of a whirlwind. I’ve been catching up on some things here at home and try to start a few new things.

MOC has started at The Lilypad and as of today, I am caught up. We’ll see if it stays that way haha You can find my pages under the Scrap Pages tab at the top and a link to my gallery there! It’s not too late to join in if you want to have some fun and possibly gain some new skills!

I also have a couple of new release pages for this week! Just Jaimee has a beautiful new add on to the January Storyteller available!

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:

I’m hoping to do some more updating soon, maybe this weekend! I am so excited to start planning my December Daily. It really helps keep me and my mind occupied during the cold dark days of winter. Thanks for looking! Peace, out…

I did it…

I got my PL all caught up for this year, even including this week!! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me! Last week, I was 10 weeks behind. I have never been that far behind! Ok, so there is one missing week. I don’t know what it is about September, but I am sorely lacking photos in September every single year! I think it has to do with getting back in the swing of work and school. I will go back and finish that page when I figure out what I’m going to do about the lack of photos…maybe a lot of journaling! But for now, I fee complete and ready to move on from here!

You can check out all my pages HERE, but I’ll share the ones I’ve done for October

Now on to all the other things on  my to-do list!! Hope you all have a great upcoming week! Thanks for looking, and until next time, peace out…

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!

DSD Overload…

Happy DSD weekend!! For those who don’t know, DSD is Digital Scrapbooking Day. There are challenges, games, and sales galore!!

But what I have done this week and into the weekend is scrap!

It’s also BYOC weekend at The Lilypad! Talk about gorgeous!! Here are just a few of the kits  you can find on sale:
