I still have some gallery catch up to do - great work everyone -- I still have to get my 3 done (but stuck on 1 layout for over a week now as I refuse to set another aside to never finish - I just can't find the right thing to use to finish it....then I'll get onto my cricut ones.
I have quite a few of these lately, just so stuck that I have to set them aside or I'll never get anything done!
I know how you feel and it stinks.
I always wonder what makes one LO just click and others it's a struggle?
I never did get my computer, I did go look, got confused, then left! I also am trying to think it through, cause I really don't "need" another computer, it's just a want, and should I be spending that kind of money on a "want" - ya know?
I have a laptop and an ipad2- I should be happy!
It's just the picture organizing/sorting is just easier on a desk top, to me anyway.
I could still very well end up with one tomorrow!!
I did go through all my memory cards this morning, took hours,
Come to find out many of the pics didn't have dates, why my camera didn't have the date set is beyond me, so most I could figure out the date, so I had to go in and date them, such a pain. Then i had to get them all on my external HD, i still need to make CD's of the new files. Gotta back up the back up, right! I am just so paranoid i will lose pics of the girls, i am the only memory keeper of their childhood, even my DD really doesnt keep pics of her girls ( cause she knows i have them by the thousands!)
Then I did some yard work, took the girls to the dollar store to get chalk, bubbles and squirt guns, dinner and clean up, then I started a LO, hope to finish that in the A.M. Providing DGD occupies herself!
Hope all had a great day !!
I'm still working on my mini and box project for my swap. It's not looking like I'm going to be able to complete this months challenges since I'm on travel for most of the rest of the month! Only a few working days left for me! Got to get cracking!!!
Trish, I know what you mean!!! You're doing a very vigilant job of safe keeping your precious pic's that's really important!
Oh, quite today.
So yep, I went and got the computer. I like it, its got a nice big screen and runs so quitetly!
I worked a bit on my LO, didn't finish.
Spent the rest of the day with the DGK's.
It was a beautiful day here, 70,sun and almost no wind! Cooked hot dogs and brats' on the grill and had pasta salad, chips and fresh strawberries and watermelon. Kids played well together, all around a good day!! I hope everyone else had the same!
I am ACU!
This will be a scrappy day for me. The plumber is coming by to do some work in the kitchen and a couple of other things around the house. I can't believe my kitchen is almost done! By the end of next week it should be finished!
acu2h!! hope to have a scrappy happy extended w/e! i've got 6 days off from work so i should get some scrappin' done. then next week my dh is flying to sacramento to visit his family (we live in indiana) and will be gone for a week. this sounds horrible, but i should get a lot of scrappin' done then too!! it's not that he's not supportive of my habit...quite the opposite! (u ladies remember my last post where he just randomly shopped for scrappy goodies for me!!) just when he's home i tend to spend time with him instead of closeting myself away in my scrap room. soooooo....when he's gone i imagine i'll get caught up on a lot!
val thats my situation exactly .....dh is VERY supportive of my habit ....I mean hobby .....but when hes home I like to spend time with him ......so when hes gone I can scrap more .......ENJOY your time!!!!!!
I have been one sick woman. I loaded this into my gallery and never posted. It's not part of the twist but I did use my cricut. Tis the Season By Jazzescrapper
I used the CM cartridge and because I borrowed it I don't know the name maybe Tis the Season from Creative Memories and the tree is from Winter frolic.
Glad to hear that Michelle. I've been wondering about my Michigan friends.
Same story here as Michelle and Val. DH is an enabler when it comes to my scrapping, but I don't scrap much when he is around. While he was at work yesterday I didn't leave my room. My Cricut was going crazy making decorations for a last minute surprise-probably today too. My son is getting married next weekend and his df wants the rehearsal dinner to be all about him. I will post pix later:)
Still in Dallas but headed back around 3pm today so will around home around 7p. That will give me a chance to unload, relax for a couple of hours and then go to my scrap room for a couple of hours after dh goes to bed! Then I have all day tomorrow!
Meeting dh for lunch today-we are going to go look at a house he wants me to see. This is really moving fast-I thought we would wait about 6 months before looking at houses-my head is spinning.....wish he would slow down a bit. He told my daughter yesterday that he wanted to be in a house by the end of May-you'd think he would relay that message to me. The drive home will be an interesting talk!
Michelle glad the storms missed you.
Sue hope you are feeling better.
Okay gotta run, still need to shower before lunch and I need to pack up the truck!
Have a great day!

We are remodeling our kitchen. We are putting down tile in the dining room and kitchen and new counter tops in the kitchen. Also putting in a new stove and vent system. My refg and diswasher are only a few years old so they won't be replaced. The oven is old but still works well so we will hold off on it for a while. We are also covering the old wall tile in the kitchen with new kitchen panels. It has taken us several months of looking to decide what we were going to do. I am better off not having too many options to look at because then I second guess every choice I make.
I am doing the same thing...and just when I think I have it chosen; price it out; and of course champagne taste on a beer budget! LOL! Struggling most with choosing what I want as the little border tiles to separate the block from diamond design. Trying to keep it really timeless looking so that 20 yrs down the road it won't scream 2012! LOL! Are you taking pics along the way to document it?
Izzy ...curious minds want to know who your supplier is on evilbay!!!!
Chansgram...Thanks for the heads up about the great price on snapfish...I hope it's still there! What a pain with your photo organizing. I need to organize all the photos I've printed. Want to change my system.
Donna and Norma...glad you two had fun!
Norma...House Shopping??? Oh how much fun! Wish my dh would encourage us to move...but he doesn't want to budge! grrr.
Marge...welcome to sb.com! You'll love it hear and become addicted to the computer as much as to scrapbooking.
Ok...I am acu!! YAY! Started a mini tonight so hopefully can get a page or 2 done and use my cricut!
Even though it's late...Blessings to everyone for St. Patrick's Day!
good morning! ....another beautiful day here in michigan! ....the closest I came to scrapping yesterday was putting the 100 or so LOs that I have done recently into albums .....I just hate that part! ......but its done! .......now to start a new pile!
Becky-DH got a job in February working in Dallas. The deal was suppose to be that we would wait 6 months before making any decisions about moving. Well he has been house hunting and taking me to the ones he likes. I am in SHOCK over the house prices. I know it is location, location, location and he wants to be close to the office but I just cannot justify paying the kind of money they want for a 3000 sq ft home. My house would be worth 2x the price it is here in Houston. And that's really the problem, I am not finding anything that is nicer than my house and they want 2x the price. So next week I will start looking and look at areas a little further out.
Have gotten alot done just need to take photos and upload, hope to do that this afternoon.
I've been MIA - we finally had beautiful weather here and since I was really hoping to start work this week, I had my grandson all last week & the weekend -- I tell you, I think I need a vacation. TJ is only three but boy does he make me feel like a grandma. We had 70's all week, the snow is finally gone and we played outside morning til night. (They live in an apt w/ no yard - but I have one.) So I'm really hoping it rains today & tomarrow so I can get to my layouts.
I'll work on catching up in the gallery - so many beautiful items here!
I have been so under the weather lately...well, because of the weather... I spent this whole weekend in a daze because I was in so much pain...I am actually looking forward to seeing the doctor on Wednesday so we can figure out what to do so I don't keep losing days...:whine over:
I did get a couple of things made last week before the cold weather knocked me out:
Holy [email protected] on a cracker, you guys were busy!! Still need to go back and cu from page 15 on , BUT I am dropping off my third project for the month - early!
This one's also for the Monochrome and Scraplift your Faves challenge: Big Sky Country - 2pgr By SonjaC
Used Elegant Edges, Mickey Font and Campout carts.
BB to cu later! TFL!
Maybe by tomorrow I will have my 3rd project done...well at least one page with a cricut cut from the mini I am working on. I swear I just feel like nothing is falling together from my bathroom to my scrapping. Want to hang it up! LOL!
Snowdog - So glad to read that you had a wonderful time with your grandson! Such precious times...but yep they make us feel old don't they?
Renbear - So sorry to hear you are in pain. I know exactly how you feel. My body has been on revolt too...I'm going to the dr next Tues. Hope they can help you. Have you been diagnosed?
Well it's getting late...my pain meds aren't touching my pain, but they are making me feel sleepy.... So we will see what wins...sleep or me being up in pain.
Haven't been in the mood to scrap*shrug*? The most I did was make 2 tissue paper flowers a few days ago. That's it!
Glad to see others have been productive!
I had a good night sleep, so maybe tonight after the DGD's go home, I may feel like gettin into my scraproom.
Hope everyone has a great day, I think today is the warmest day for us till the weekend(when I'll be at work.
Oh my goodness so many beautiful creations and I'm three pages behind. I'm leaving on travel for the rest of the month in the morning. I won't be back till the 3rd, which will be too late to sign up for next months challenges. No worries Norma, I'll be back in May! Have a fun time ladies and think good thoughts for us as we travel across the US. WQe're picking up our new motor home in SC and going to Atlanta to see my sis, then onto OK to see my dad, daughter and grand daughter too, then home about the 3rd. Should be quite the adventure! Praying for better weather though! See you all again soon!
Okay first page is ACU again, please remember to check to make sure I got your project posted.
Already over 120 again and still have 10 days to go-we should easily get to 150. And more than 50% have already finished the challenge! Great job ladies.
Dawna have a fantastic time on your trip-ya'll just be careful. We can't wait to see the photos you take and the layouts you are going to make. (PS I can add you into April if you like-but understand if you would like to take a month off!)
Started cleaning yesterday and just made a bigger mess! So off to put away some scrappie supplies!
LOL almost up to date, Michelle finished another layout while I was talking!

I had a very hard time with these papers. The bottom mountainous looking paper was one of the uglys, as was the flags in the top corner and the title. The little bird is the embellie. I challenged my self to use only the uglys given to me and basic card stock, and I am happy with the outcome.
for he cricut challenge, i used plantin school book for the title. I was going to weld the words, but i forgot!!
acu2h!! takin a while bc computer here at work just started actin' wonky 1/2 way thru but i made it! took dh to airport at 3am this morning...visiting his fam back in his home place of sacramento for a week....i imagine i'll get a lot of scrappin' done this week tryin' to keep myself busy! actually i hope to get my scraproom organized and cleaned up....we'll see if i can accomplish both!
Izzy ...curious minds want to know who your supplier is on evilbay!!!!
I assume u mean my new one and not the one that suddenly stopped selling without warning lol! The one I've switched too is taymeag2010. Sometimes have to bid on a cart several times to get one I want, and I've found that the wee hrs of the morning is when I have the most luck, but that's true with all cart sellers I've found. This seller, unlike my old one, has great communication and lightning fast shipping. Also, they have reasonable shipping prices and they do combine shipping. Good luck!
