A Few Things

I haven't posted in a few months! I finally got moved into my new place 5 days before Thanksgiving and then right into Christmas and well I still have a few boxes that are still in the top of my closet that need to be unpacked...hehehe
Things have finally settled down and I've been able to finish a swap or two and wanted to post a couple of pics before it gets crazy around here again....I have another week maybe two of calm before the storm of work gets me!

These are from an album that I did for a TWS swap.

And a kit that I put together for a swap...the first kit I've ever put together so I hope I did ok.

Endings, Beginnings and The Great In Between

I'm very sad to say that after 3 years in this huge house I will be downsizing to a much smaller place. I'm happy to say that I will be saving tons of money! I will no longer have to worry about the upkeep of this huge yard and I get a chance to decorate my new place in a fresh new look.  I hate moving though....hate packing everything up, hate having to get use to a new place but at the same time it's also exciting. I will be much closer to Connors school, 2 blocks to be exact WOW. It's just scary ya know? It's still the same neighborhood though so I guess that's a good thing.

I will be packing my scrap stuff up tonight :-( I will be packing my kitchen up, I will be packing, packing, packing!  I will also be without internet probably for at least a week...maybe two YIKES I'm going to go into withdrawal not being able to read blogs and watch everyones youtube videos!! Moving next weekend though so hopefully I won't be without for too long.

The last time I moved I was getting a! I'm nervous, trying to decide if I'm making the right decision....I hate when my decisions affect other people. Hopefully it will all be for the best though.

Wish me luck.

She's Alive! (And peeks at my trade minis!)

A week and a half long vacation interrupted by flu, bronchitis, flu ridden child and other mayem! 4 days left of my vacation and I am finally beginning to feel somewhat normal except I have the serious shakes possibly from the medications I'm sure. My breathing is still labored but my chest no longer hurts every time I inhale!

I wanted to quickly post a few pics of my October trade minis that I made for DSC and TWS. Not going to say which is going to who because darn it I want it to be a surprise but they are pretty similar....I really hope the recepients like what I made. I did forget to add fibers so had to run back and add that and I left the charms off  but am sending those along so they can add them :-)  These were supposed to go postal last Friday but my good old flu buddy had other plans! They will be postal tomorrow!!!!

Trick or Flu?

I have so much to post about and so many photos to post including one of the most amazing minis that I received from my TWS partner Debbi! But I'm sorry I don't have the energy to sit here and post anything more then this. I have been sick since Wednesday, flu that developed into acute bronchitis and connor came home from school yesterday sick, we both spent our halloween in doctors offices he has the flu :-(  Lindsay has barricaded herself to far far away land ...her room.... she wants no part of us or the illness.
I promise I will post pics as soon as I'm feeling better. I hope everyone out there has a wonderful weekend.

CCC $10 Swap and Randomness!

Hello Hello! Exactly 2 weeks before I start my vacation yayyyyyy!! I am so excited to actually have 12 days off from work!! I really am completely burnt out mentally and I am soooooo very tired all the time, I'm looking forward to doing nothing but scrapping while the kiddos are in school and whatever they want to do afterwards, I think I may actually even take a nap or two, in fact I am going to add that to my vacation agenda!

I have 2 halloween minis that I started working on so I am up to my eyeballs in halloween stuff I didn't work on them at all today but I'm off Friday and Sunday so guess what I'll doing on those days? YEP working on those minis! I was wondering if I could use that spider web stuff that you decorate around the house with on on one of the minis....what do yall think? I'm worried that it will end up getting stuck and gross over time.

Speaking of scrapping though look at what I have picked up during my little shopping trips the past few days!

Ok so that's not really all that I bought.....I picked up a couple of paper pads by K&Co and DCWV (they were $5!) These are all the $1 findings that I picked up for the $10 swap at Craft Craving Chicas. The purpose of the swap is to pick out 10 $1 items for your swap partner and as you can see in the pic I ended up with much more then 10 items! I'm going to choose the most unique items and send those off to my partner and the rest just may end up in a blog candy soon! Who knows.

Off to dreamland now. Yall have a great night!

DSC September Kit Mini Finished (Mostly!)

I'm so excited to be mostly finished with my album! Hang in there with me because this is only my 2nd mini that I have made so I'm still learning from all of you....yes I am a blog/youtube stalker (but in a good way)! One thing I noticed after looking at the photos of my album is that I only inked the edges of one page so all my other pages have grey chipboard edges... I'm going to go back and take care of that! I also have tons of stuff left from the kit! I mean tons...I even have 2 chipboard pages left so I am most likely going to go back and add those pages later.
Lindsay loves this mini so it will be hers, she can go add whatever journaling she wants about her and Connor. I cannot express how very close they are...their relationship is amazing to me and really makes me wish that I had not been an only child. My oldest Travis is close to Connor and Lindsay too but it's not the same, it's almost as of Connor and Lindsay are connected at the very core of their being....their souls are connected.
Anyway here's my mini, I had a lot of fun making it. Thanks for taking a peek!
