Tammy, I was in scrappy withdrawal. Plus, I love a deadline. It truly helps me to DO/MAKE something when I know I have a deadline. The trip wasn't really that hard. All the flights were on time, etc etc. Except for the constant meetings (on my part) it was a rather relaxing trip.
I don't think I will ever get my scrap room clean, but I finally organized, the last box of stuff and put all the containers on the shelves. I put away my Christmas stuff and my winter stuff. I craft every day, so my desk has a different mess every day, but I'm trying to come up with a way to have all the stuff I'm working with, papers, tools, glues, etc in one case rather than 5 different catchalls.
I finished a 3rd lo!! Oh crud, I forgot about an online crop tonight.. I rented some movies with my daughter and fell asleep through the second one. The first one we saw was "The Help" it was a wonderful movie, tear jerker. The second one, don't waste your money or time, called "the Tree of Life" with Brad Pitt in it. That's the one I fell asleep in. It was thee most boring movie I've every seen. About 20 minutes of volcanoe/ocean/who the hecks knows scenes, not sure what the movie was about. Pretty sad.

My daughter wants to read the book now. She said I cursed her. She kept crying through out the movie! Ever since I got pregnant with her, I cry watching tv or mushy stuff and the past two years, she's sometimes even worse than me!
I found a challenge on here for Scrap-room makeover. Not necessarily to redesign, but to to get it organized and have things put away, etc. Perhaps change something that will make it easier to help keep it clean. I joined it!
I want to add a goal for this week.
1)Paint my scrap room (as long as the paint is still good) I have a gallon of pink paint I bought for my daughter two years ago and she decided not to like it. The walls need to be painted in here, so I might as well use what I have. I'll be able to accent it with blacks and whites and silvers.
2) gather all my extras to donate to Pebblesh and mail it. (she in turns gives it away to people who are new to scrapping or may not be able to afford to buy new things, etc)
Sometimes you just need a break from crafting to feel refreshed and inspire creativity again. You'll be back at it in no time.
I just added another goal even though I haven't finished with my last set. I still have that stupid rosette snowman in pieces all over my craft room. I need to put him together. Maybe he'll be done by next year...
HI ladies!! I have been MIA for a few days, and seems like I missed a whole lot of chit chat. lol sorry ladies. I am slowly completing my goals... My lil' scrappy corner seems to never be clean/organized! anyhow, I just ordered a whole bunch of pictures (snapfish.com has a penny print sale going on right now 99 prints for 99 cents) so hopefully when I get those pictures in the mail, I will get inspired to do some more LO's. How has everyone been doing?
Hi Cheena, that's a fabulous deal for photo printing. Wish I wasn't so lazy about ordering pictures. There are a ton I need.
Yay, Stacey! You get a banana. Good for you.
Vivian, now that you are close to the finish line, are you getting excited yet? Have you already purchased a new house or are you still looking?
Last night I spent about 2 hours in my scrap space glueing rosettes for that stupid snowman. I had tons of accordion circles that needed to be made into rosettes, and my mother had helped me with them. Dear Lord, she stapled every single one wrong. She just attached the pieces together instead of attaching them to the correct peak so they made an actual accordion fold. I'll remember this snowman project forever, because it feels like forever since I started it. Anyway, all the rosettes are done, but I ran out of hot glue and didn't feel like digging more out, plus I couldn't find the directions, so the snowman pieces will be glued together today, and then I'm packing him in a closet until later in the year. I'm over him.
Bummer, I took the paint out yesterday and it was dried out. Somewhere I should have another gallon of paint. If not, I'm going over my friend's house on Thurday and he's going to see what they have leftover from when they painted a couple of years ago.. hope his paint is still good And he has some purple, hopefully.
Kelly, I was laughing as I read about your snow man. I bet if you had the directions in front of you he would have turned out as beautiful as your pumpkin did.
Vivian, did you ever find temporary lodging? Or is the house you bought going to be available when you move out?
And since I missed out the past month or two ...Tammy, did you finally move to England?
Dumb question, if you're in CAN, why would you need to send your stuff to NY in the USA? Where will you be leaving from?
Also, if you don't mind me asking, what is biometrics? Was that a prerequisite? Was it another name for a physical?
Last week, my doctor calls me to tell me my triglycerides are running a bit on the high side. I was on medication last year which she took me off of this past June. So, instead of putting me on meds, she told me she was going to put me on fish oil. I told her it sounds disgusting and asked if I was going to be smelly or tasting fish. "Oh no...." Well, I'm on week one where I only have to take 3 a day, then next week two 3x a day. then the next week [email protected] a day. I was smelly fish just her telling me this. Well, I'm on day three now and tonight, I'm burping up fish. We had meatloaf. Meatloaf doesn't taste anything like fish. You know, if natural remedies work, than fine. But I don't care if its synthetic or natural, just give me what's quicker and more convenient.
Happy Friday Everyone!! I finished my other swap YAY!!!
Tammy, how did everything go yesterday? I'm with Sally also, what is Biometrics?
Sally, that seems like a lot to remember to take?! Anyhow, I take an Omega Fish Oil supplement everyday along with a multivitamin, and I've never had that problem... Maybe b/c I'm only taking one? How long do you have to take that amount of supplements? Will it be reduced? Maybe that will help... Sorry for all of my questions. LOL
I absolutely loathe fish, so burping fish is not an option. There is a brand of fish oil out there that is infused with strawberries so when you burp, you taste strawberry. I can find out the brand if you like. I'm too scared to even try those.
We just spent the last 2 days at the wrestling regionals tournament. Got some great shots but am completely wore out. 7 hours Friday and 9 hours on Saturday. Very long days. I think I have bleacher butt.
