Once upon a time, things got quiet here on the weekends, so a thread was started to just hang out and do a virtual crop. Since then it has expanded to run all week long. We have our regulars, but new friends are always welcome, too.
And we miss some of our old friends too!!!!

FAIR WARNING: We may talk about anything and everything. We're women. We chat. You never know what might come up in conversation.

Sharing your recent scrappy work is encouraged, but there are no guidelines for what or how much you have to do.

So come on! Don't be bashful! Just jump in wherever we are, and we'll be glad to get you caught up on what's happening. We never know what we're going to talk about or how silly we will get.

WARNING: Reading of, or participation in, this thread could result in food or drink being sprayed across your computer or sleepless nights ... Just read responsibly.

Did some stuff last night for me. Me stuff. LOL

Then when I got home, hubby says "Lets go out"
Out as in you and I? Out as in no kids or grandkids? Out as in not fast food, but an actual bar with music?

I'm IN!!!

Okay the music was really bad Karaoke, but hey, it wasn't radiating from the walls of my kids rooms.

And the rest of the night shall not be mentioned here, cause it was not rated PG

Today hubby is already hard at work on the drywall in my new studio

I need to go down and finish the prep work on my cabinets.
Then I need to decide if I'm going to take the time to do some wood work on the cabinets themselves, or start basecoating the doors and then work on the cabinets later.

I also need to make 2 birthday cards.
One for my lovely daughter who turns 20 tomorrow.
And one for my lovely granddaughter who is having her 16th birthday party today.

Yay for a night out! My hubby is taking me out to dinner tonight. I've been a little blue lately what with all the studying, trying to get caught up on the swaps I'm in, trying to figure out why we're not pregnant, trying to get something going on my etsy shop so I can bring in some extra cash to cover what I'm loosing with the hours cut, and blah blah blah. I think he saw that I needed something fun so he's taking me to Carabbas

Today I'm doing some studying, I have a test coming up on Tuesday. I'm trying to find time to make a green tomato pie and take it to my Grandma's house for my Pap. Trying to find time to work on my swaps. I'm so looking forward to winter break from class in December xD

Tomorrow we're having a birthday party for my nephew, he'll be 4!

okay, well, I did get one of the birthday cards made. Survived the party. Went out to Jake and Laura's to try to settle their paint dilemma (that doesn't look right, but it came up in spell check??) They were here last night for me to help pick the colors. When they put samples on the wall they realized I was right about one being dark, and the faux chairrail they were going to paint in didn't look right where they had it.
Sigh....

So I went out and looked and convinced her that her colors themselves were fine, it was the proportions that were off, so I think we got that settled. Had to check out Jamie's new bed anyway.

Bill has made amazing progress on the drywall. I am sooo excited about the way the room is coming together.

The doors of the cabinets were all prepped and ready so I went ahead and started on those. The insides now have 2 coats of base coat. The outsides have one....technically I hit them twice but I one was more of a touch up, so depending on what they look like in the morning, I might put one more coat on them. I also basecoated the front of one cabinet that was already prepped.

Still need to make one more birthday card, and wrap a couple of small presents for Meg, but not too many worries because she sleeps late everyday and we are taking her to brunch.

I also have to sit and review some legal paperwork. Phhhhhh......so not looking forward to it. But in another 6 weeks, hopefully it will all be over.

I'm here and I'm exhausted. We've been slammed from 10pm to midnight, but tonight (and last night) we were slammed from the time I clocked in until the time we closed at midnight.

They're gouging because it sold out first time around. Ranger is trying to make some more, they're going to go fast though and they won't be back until next year. I got mine from a local stamp store for $18

Okay, I spent the last several hours reviewing some legal paperwork and working on more documentation. It is so stressful. Hopefully I have provided enough to get the job done.

My craft room is all set up. I'm so excited. I love how it looks. I'm super happy that it's done and now I can get to work and mess it all up again.

On the upside, I made a nice birthday card for dd this morning, then we went to brunch.
She then went to spend some time with friends, and then out to her father's family for dinner.

Hubby got a lot of work done in my studio. I am soooo impressed with him! And I am sooo happy with how my studio is coming out.
I didn't get to work on my cabinets at all today, but that's okay. I will have all day tomorrow. I also need to try out my paint samples and make a concrete decision on those. He says by next weekend we can prime the walls and maybe do a test patch of the color.

I have Jamie Tuesday and Wednesday so that will limit what I can do in the basement those days. Bill will be gone late tomorrow night so it will add to the amount of time I can spend down there.

Yay Liz! I can't wait to see pictures. I need to figure out all of my stuff too, once I get my new room. I'm going to have a lot of cabinets, but so far when it comes to my scrapping stuff I am more of a out of sight out of mind kind of person, so I hesitate to put too much of it in cupboards. But having the counterspace so that all of my tools will be out will be amazing!

I can scrap when people are around, and I can scrap alone. but currently my space to scrap is a tiny cubby and all of my tools and stuff are exploding out into my bedroom, and I have to dig things out to use them and then clean them up and after all these years of not having my own space for anything, hubby decided it was time. Besides, we have the space, it was just going to waste before.

I need to get myself fired up again though. I am losing my extreme motivation to get things accomplished and to stay on the move all the time. I need to make the most of every day and get things done and stop sitting around on my computer. Lately the wind has just gone out of my sails and I need to find it again.

Here it is.

Top of the steps By Foltzy
The goal is to one day have you all up there.

Main area By Foltzy
Ignore Princess, she was mad because I shut the door to Micayla's room. Also ignore the water stains on the wall, the people never repainted it after they fixed the roof and I didn't realize it until after we bought the house (The inspector took a meter to it so I do know it's old and not leaking now). Also the white board will be on the wall eventually, I discovered last night it's missing a hook to hang it.

Corner of my scraproom By Foltzy
The Xyron is suppose to be on the top of the brown shelf thing but I forgot to put it back after I was done playing with it last night. As you can see I also use the window space for things. I don't use that window as it faces the neighbors one window and so I keep it closed.

So...spent the morning watching Jamie run around like a mad man

took ds to hospital for a CT scan

took boys to Wendy's for food

watched Jamie run around like a mad man again

put Jamie down for a nap

Sitting here basically staring at the Essence, trying to stop yawning before I dislocate my jaw

He's here visiting. He keeps saying he's going in to watch a movie with his brother, but he just sits here and sighs

of coarse this means I'm not accomplishing anything on my to-do list either cause I feel rude not sitting here with him since he's actually here.

Not really Ria.
He's having a hard time right now.
His fiancee broke up with him cause after 2 years, one of which he lived with her family, she decided they were too serious.
His hero aunt, had a hissy fit and cut off all driving him to school since he totaled his car a month ago.
He had to withdraw from school.
And he's been sick and had to go to hospital today for CT scan and other tests. I took him, so he was here to visit for a while. He's overwhelmed, he's scared, and he's feeling the need for some stability.

Then it could be that he just wants his momma. Who do we all want when we're sick or hurt or sad? Momma.

Up late today, more big brown eyes!

Finished my cabinet doors last night. Need to go check them over, do any touch ups, then they can be put aside and the remaining cabinets can be cleaned, prepped, and done. that probably won't happen until after 5 though. Need to find my to-do list, update that, and attack it with anything I can do with tiny feet running around.

Geez o pete.....just checked my ebay listings...not one single bid. I don't seem to have a lot of luck there anymore.
Used to be a place where people went to buy nice gently used stuff...now I think everyone goes there to buy new stuff and the heck with the rest.

Thanks Mel! It happens around this time every year. I guess it's the seasons changing. I'm actually glad it's happening now, I'm usually sick on either my birthday or Halloween. If it gets me now it'll be gone by then
