So, yeah….

It’s that time of year where I am not around much. Work is insane and then add baseball to that. We have been doing baseball 5-6 nights a week and it’s really starting to become draining. I’m not really feeling like I am keeping up with much of anything. But, less than a month from now it will all be over and I’ll wonder where the time went.

I’m not going to add all the layouts I’ve done the last few weeks here. I’ll just upload them to my Scrap Pages and if  you want to have a peek, you’ll find them there. What I did want to share is that two of my favorite designers, as well as two of my favorite people are retiring from design. It makes me very sad that I won’t have new goodies from them to play with regularly, but fortunately I have a great stash from both. I wish them both all the happiness in the world!

First up.. Val of ValC Designs. I’ve been on her creative team for about 3 1/2 years now and I have to say that working with her designs really helped me think outside the box and create some pages that are among my all time favorites. Make sure you check out her awesome sale and grab her gorgeous designs while you can. Image is linked to her store at Oscraps.

Next is Tracy of Tracy Martin Scrapbook Designs. I created with Tracy’s stuff back when I was on the site CT for One Story Down and totally fell in love with her amazing creations. I was over the moon when she asked me to be on her creative team over a year and a half ago. Her kits are among my very favorite of all time and I find myself going back to them over and over!! Don’t miss this chance to get all her amazing creations while you still can!! Images linked to her store.

Alrightie.. that’s it from me tonight. I’m off to get my gallery updated and hit the bed. Peace, out….

I’ll be back this weekend to share this week’s newest releases and updates on my Life in Pockets pages! Hope everyone has a great end to the week. Peace, out…

 

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…

Well…

I’m not really sure where the last few days went, other than we did finally get back to work for 3 days and then off another 2. I am over winter. Fortunately, it does look like the next week or more will be beautiful and no temps below freezing! I also love, love, love the time change! I really do think about this blog every day and say I’m coming to post something and then one thing leads to another and I piddle around and don’t do it. But anyway, I’m here now and wanted to share a few new things for this week!

First up, it’s a brand new month at Simple Scrapper! If you haven’t checked out their Premium Membership, you really should. It’s a great community filled with wonderful scrappers! You also get access to a full library of sketches and Story Starters to jump start your creativity, Spark Magazine, planning tools, and lots of other unique and awesome content. Here are the layouts I created with sketches and story starters from the Premium Membership:

Basketball season is winding down and we are in the playoffs right now. I have so many photos to scrap and Traci Reed read my mind! She has this great new basketball kit and matching cards!

Cabin Fever!!

Oh has it ever set in. I love my family, truly I do. But after a week of being trapped in the house with them, it’s a wonder we are all still alive! I know I’ve mentioned that we have gotten off pretty easy in the weather department this winter, but Mother Nature decided that it was time for us to pay! It started snowing last Saturday and we got a little and then all hell broke loose. We have been out of school all week because of a combination of more snow and below 0 temperatures. I am seriously going stir crazy. This is definitely the time of year that I wish I lived in town and not on these hilly, windy, privately maintained roads. I have only ventured out the front door to shovel. And not only that, but I have been a total sloth inside the house. I just have no motivation to do anything. I feel like I have spent the last week doing nothing but cooking, eating, and washing dishes.  Ok…I’ll stop complaining now. They were calling for up to 12 more inches tomorrow, but have backed off to a more mix type thing, changing to rain. Thank GOD! I so feel for all of the people in states where they are dealing with much worse than we are.

We’ll move on to some scrappy things! I have done a little of that this week, so I will share some of the fabulous stuff you can find in the shops and on sale this weekend.

I’m loving my guest spot with Two Tiny Turtles! She has some great new template sets out this week…

This one is called For the First Time and uses a re-release from River~Rose and Pink Reptile Designs called Scrapazzi:

Etc by Danyale has a fabulous new kit called Cottage No9.  There is also matching Word Art (and believe it or not, I did not use a template on this haha):

Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs has some fantastic new templates this week called Fuss Free: What’s Your Angle. I used a kit called Eskimo Kisses by Tracy Martin for this one:

That’s it for today! I’ll be back tomorrow to share some more awesome new stuff!! Stay warm. Peace, out…

Organized, say what?!

Ok, so I keep saying that I am working on my organizational skills for the new year and so far so good. I still have improvements that need to be made, but I am feeling better about things. One of the biggest things that has helped me has been starting a planner. I would love to have a fancy planner that I could add things to, but I had fun making my own a couple of weeks ago. I used the cover from an old notebook that I loved and customized it so that I would love using it. Here are a few (not so good) photos of it:

IMG_0354(2) IMG_0355(2) IMG_0356 IMG_0357 IMG_0358

I made my own tab dividers using the Winter Wish Collection from the designers at Pixels and Company and added a few pieces of word art and journaling that inspired me. The bulk of the planner is from the Start Fresh Event from Simple Scrapper. It was a 5 day event that I did not get to participate in as fully as I would have liked because of all of last weeks “activity”, but it is now available as a do-it-yourself e-course!! The materials that come along with it are so amazing and so helpful and the key to getting me organized this year! There is going to be so much more This Year at Simple Scrapper to keep me motivated and inspired. I am really looking forward to all of it!

I also wanted to share the pages that I did for Simple Scrapper this month. Their membership materials make it so easy to keep scrapping!

Sowder_1_600This one was done using Simple Pleasures by Tracy Martin along with a template from the January 2015 Membership materials and a Story Starter from March 2012.

 

Sowder_2_600This one was done using Love the Life You Live by Tracy Martin using a Story Starter from January 2015 and a template from September 2013.

So, here’s to better organization in the coming year! Peace, out…

And Breathe…..

It’s been another couple of weeks, but a crazy couple of weeks. My son is now a married  man, for better or worse as they say. It was a small but really nice wedding. And now I’m exhausted. My birthday is tomorrow and I don’t even want to celebrate haha. The time changed last night as well, and I hate it! I do not like it getting dark so early. All of my energy is gone once the sun goes down. But anyway, I’m hoping to get back on track with a few things now and get ready to gear up for the holidays.

This weekend was DSD and while I didn’t get to take part in all the activities, I did get to scrap some last week during down time! I updated my scrap pages with all these new pages:

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,  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 😦 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!

I’ve also got a couple of pages to add to my Project Life. I’m still behind, but not quite as far LOL Have a great rest of the weekend!!

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 🙂 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.

10561531_10204493419560687_1501885942745263093_n

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!
