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!

3 Day Weekend = Party Time For Mommy! Day Two.......

Day 2! Ok so today is my MIL's birthday and guess who forgot to send her a card?!?!?! So what do you think I did? I sat down with Connor and helped him make his grammy a card and then posted it on her Facebook for the whole world to see.....well at least her entire friend and family list!

Look at my little snaggle tooth baby.....I love this kiddo soooooooo much! (WOW he needs a hair cut!)

My oldest son brought home about 15 pounds of fresh Georgia shrimp a couple of days ago, I of course made him cut the heads off before I would touch them, then we froze those bad boys to cook today and tomorrow and the day after and the day after and so on ......we will be eating shrimp all week! (I should have taken pics of those things before he cut the heads off!) We fried a few for lunch today and yummm yumm they are so good! Shrimp Scampi is on the menu for tonight and tomorrow we will be making Shrimp Creole, maybe shrimp fajitas Wednesday? I don't think any of us will be wanting shrimp for a long long time after this week!

I am almost finished with my mini from the DSC Sept. kit...yayyyyy! I will be posting pics of the complete album tonight or tomorrow. Right now I am going to watch a scary movie with my daughter. Where's the popcorn?

3 Day Weekend = Party Time For Mommy! Day One.......

OMG I sooooo love having a 3 day weekend! Well.....really 3 days together period really gets my happiness flowing!

Today is Day One - I do nothing. I slept in until 8am! I spent the morning reading blogs and watching videos, read a bit of the new Dan Brown book, picked out a few black goodies to go into a mini album I will be making for a swap, took my kiddos out to lunch, opened up my new October scrap kit from DSC (GORGEOUS!), and best of all......Connor intructed me on how to make fake vomit out of clay!! (HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY I LOVE HAVING A BOY!)

It is now 6pm and I am ready to settle down and scrap for a couple of hours and then I will be re-watching Ghosts of Girlfriends Past with dreamy Matthew McConaughey (FLUTTER GOES MY HEART WINGS).
