Personal Mini Crop Day

So I got up this morning still not feeling good...but a little later in the day I had these creative thoughts in my head and had to get them out. And it started raining so what else is a scrappin girl to do.....Rob made me a spice rack once the rain stopped, he likes to read so that's what he was doing durning the rain and still is. I was starting to feel a little tired so I decided to jump on You Tube and check out some of my subscriptions and there was one about a scrap room. Right now I dont have a room dedicated just for scrapping, it's our guest room as well. So I have to be inventive about storage. Then I thought to myself, I said long as I dont answer I am ok, I said self, Rob can build me a paper station and another cube to go beside for other things I could buy in the future or put on my wish list. So he had me tell him what I wanted and we drove to Lowes to price and see what materials he would need. I will post pics once we get this done, until then enjoy my creations and a pic of my scrap table at the moment.

Feeling Down but not Out

I have been under the weather the last few days, and one thing I do not like is being sick on the weekends....since I work in Little Rock, but live 46 miles from my job...weekends are my time to get things done...and since I have back in my scrappin mode...thanks to a "small" but great space I fixed up in our spare room. We are currently in a townhouse/apartment so I am making the best with what I have...makes me think of Polly. You remember the old Disney movie, where when someone complained about something she said well think of something happy about it or something like This has been a good week for my cardmakin though. I made three cards thru the One for a friends birthday, one for a co-worker (she wanted an extra card for her daughters 8th b-day), and one for a card swap (theme = pink/encouragement/breast cancer). Check them out! So what do you think? I have two other swaps one for February that is due the end of the month...I just joined last week, so I will get that done's only one card. And then I joined another swap, but it's 15 cards...I think this will be my fave...and get this...the swaps are miles away from me so I have to mail....I cant wait to get mine back from the swap. Well I need to get off of here I want to play, and even though I am sick, I just cant stop I not only have the sick bug, but the scrappin bug....oh that one is the best to have too!!! And I will make sure to take my theraflu and rest also. Have a great scrappin weekend my friends!

Valentine Day 2010

Well I had a great day, Rob had to work Sunday....but that was okay, he gave me his gift earlier and every day before. His luv is all I need and I have that everyday and he made me home made Chicken Alfredo, he's a chef.....but we both share in the cooking as I love to cook and bake. I am him Sophilla Cheesecake...let me know if you want the recipe! I made his v-day card and he thought that was great (this is our first one to share together). Now he wants me to make me one so I showed him all my stuff and he said he would me one on Wedensday, I will post a pic when he gives it to me. I have a pic of the dinner he prepared, and yes it was As you can see the table is a little worn, this happened in the fall when he decided to remove some paint from our lamps from the bedroom and decided to do this on my table a cloth was down but "OOOOPS" is what I was told when returning home from work one He can fix it and its not that expensive of a table I get to shop for a new one....which ladies is our pleasure to So all in all it was a perfect day for me! I am one of the luckiest girls out there, he helps out so much with the house, laundry, cooking and walks with me. He treats me like I treat him, with respect, love, and I thank God for bringing him to me!

Hey Ya'll

Well it's the saturday before Valentines Day, and I need to make my hunny a card....oh so many ideas, in my head and from fellow paper crafters. I have started to look for inspiration in everyday life...if I see something I try to remember it. But now I have gotten a little smarter, you know the camera feature on our cell phones...yeah it takes pictures....who woulda So now if I see something inspiring I am takin a pic, cause I dont know about you, but I am old and have no I have been in a lull for almost 2 years...I am missing my cropping buddies in florida and my ctmh she was inspirational and always taught new techniques. That's another reason, I put my consulting business to the back burner....and now I live in a small town with other consultants, so I am going to concentrate on building it slow and enjoy the products. So I am off to make a card and start a memory box for a baby shower gift. And oh yeah I have to do pesky laundry and clean the kitchen....thankfully my hunny cleaned the upstairs....he's great!!!! Have a great weekend!!!
