I got one more page of the Everglades done and I think the last two pages are going to be 6 pictures of Alligators each. They are 4 x 6 and take up the full photos so there isn't much room to crop. I really don't think I can do much with blocking or anything because they take up the full photos so these two will probably just be photo pages. I am going to play with it for a while to see if there is anything I can do with these 12 alligator pictures.

When my photo-screensaver comes on, I keep seeing pics of 'gators that we took, then when you talk about them, Henri, it makes me want to start on either my LA or FL album...but I just started scrapping another trip on our Tahoe album, so I'll at least finish that trip. I'm up to Dec., 1993...just a few more years to go & since we make at least two trips a year, this album will probably take me the rest of my life

Mia~I looked at your gallery. You've got some cute layouts...bright and happy looking!

I'm also hoping to use the Craft Wars 50% coupon at Mike's before it expires tonight. I just can't figure out what I want to buy. I have most everything I want that they carry, but I always NEED more punches

Working on the Nike missle site which is in the Everglads and was used for defense during the Cuban Missle Crisis.

The research has been fasicnating - I learned so much. Now to edit it down so it fits on a page with the pictures.

THen the part of the Everglades with the crocodiles. I didn't know they had crocodiles but there is one place where salt water and fresh water come together or something and there are crocodiles. We just saw one but got lots of pictures of him.

ALl that leaves in the Flrida is a restaurant layout.

Three little one pagers - will get as much done as pottile tonight. THen maybe I can start another section of pages tomorrow.

Hi everyone, We had severe storms yesterday & today.Lots of trees were down. Had very strong winds. Dave lost his windshield too. Lots of thunder & lightning so I haven't been here much. Dave is not supposed to pick up sticks & logs. I could not get him to stop. He looked out later. 5 adult kids from one neighbor family were picking up stuff. The 4 neighbors from next door were here too. My son kept taking every ones stuff to the recycle place. I do not know how many trips it took. Today, Lowes (home improvement store) sent guys with chainsaws & bags to pick up the stuff. They were not charging anyone. Never saw them do that before. Dave had tears in his eyes cause it was so sweet. I spent the day cooking cause I shopped last night. I am going to make a thank you sign for the mailbox tonight.Dave took pics of everyone working in our yard.
After that, I will work on my layout.

Two pages of Florida Everglades done (or at least ready to finish mat and glue - will take about 15 minutes at the next crop) so now I'm off to start page 3. There are 5 pages.

After those 3 are done I have 3 more misc. Florida pages to do and I'm thorugh with that trip. That is my goal this weekend. WIll hopefully finish it today. I can do 6 more layouts today, and definitely by the end of the weekend.

Then I have a 1 pager from having houseguests and then a 1, possibly 2 pager from Bill's hospital visit.

THen its just piddly 1 and two page layouts - about 20 of them until I get to Key West. Then I'm caught up.

I want to be caught up so bad. We leave on a trip on Tuesday and I know I will bring back so much more to do in a month in a half or two months of travel.

Coming home to the scrapping caught up is like coming home to a freshly made bed with clean linens and all clean dishes.




Yeah on getting those 2 everglades pages Henri! I hope you get all 5 of the everglades done soon so you can work on the other 3 FLA pages & be done! I do hope you get all the ones you want done so you can be caught up before you leave again.

How awesome to have that help with your yard Linda! And to have the people from Lowes pitch in. That is what being good neighbors is all about!

I think a sign for the mailbox is a very sweet thing to do.

We couldn't believe it. The adult kids grew up here. The Mom said that she remembered when her kids walked to grade school & Dave told her that they could walk through our yard cause it backs up to the school. She said she was always so thankful for that. I am sure going to miss them when we move. I know we will find other great neighbors there. Dave thought about the sign. I said let's make it a big red heart.

Where are you moving to? If I missed it in your posts, I'm sorry. I know you're leaving the house your dad built, which has to be really hard. We were going to move "back east" a few years ago—even looked at some houses in MS, TN, GA & SC, but then the housing market fell apart and we just kind of forgot about it. We've lived in San Diego (same house) since 1978. Hubby is SoCal native and I don't think he was really into the moving thing. Now I see the weather everywhere else and I'm kinda glad we're still here...at least for a while But I'd love to live where they actually have trees & rivers. Yes, we have lots of trees, but not all smooshed together like on the other coast. Most of our rivers are dry for most of the year. I'm a CO native and I guess I'm glad I'm not living there right now either! San Diego has had its share of major fires and I don't miss them!

If you just put it up for sale and its nearly all gone in just hours - you did a great job of organizing it and getting it posted well!

Awesome!

she sold her gypsy, cricut imagine, cricut cake (the big one), and about $2000 worth of jewelery making items (beads, tools, etc)

I think she only has some stamps, misc paper, magazines, embellishments left!

Happy Monday!

I've been MIA most of last week due to my sister being here. I'm trying to catch up but there are so many threads and blogs it just seems impossible, so I figured I'll just jump in here. Linda, such a bittersweet story. I'm sorry for the damage, but so happy that the neighbors helped out!

I spent this evening organizing my ribbon. This is at least the 3rd time I have reorganized it but I think I finally found a method that will stick. I needed to move them because I needed the container they were in for my ever growing paper collection.

I hear that Jarvae! My friend gave me a BUNCH I mean a BOAT LOAD of stickles and TH powders and the like and in addition to what I have I know have to rethink how to organize it all. the little container I have for stickles is NOT going to hold all this!

You do not need to be sorry at all. I may have only posted it one week & it may have been when you were gone. DH medical conditions have gotten much worse & he went on early retirement. we have 2 acres. He has to get on the roof when it rains because it leaks. He fell off recently. We are staying in this city. We are moving to a condo of some sort so he does not have to do that much yard work. He just found out he has to have back surgery & anerysym at the same time. It will be a 5 mos recovery. You are right. It will be so hard to leave but I want Dave to be safe.
I know what you mean about the housing market. It happens here too. Sometimes I wish I was out there out of the cold but I forgot about your rain. Rain is better than snow.
