All these goodies I have and too lazy to use them Another thing I looking to see if Redbox has something good. I love scary movies but theres nothing good. Maybe pick up the descendents. Oh well what are you guys up to?

It's ok, sometimes you just don't feel it!

My iPhone is completely frozen and I'm on the phone with tech support.

I'm at my mom's again, can't scrap but I can shop. Got a four pack of Nesties at J's today for $29. It's squares, hearts, diamonds and one other. I'm so tired right now. I am bringing her home from a nursing home and setting up home health care. Anyway, I was excited they had this on the clearance area.

The thing I find odd about some of the 4 packs is that it will have large and small of the same design in the same pack. Really there is not that much difference so I don't want that. But the one I got was four entirely different shapes. Separately they would be over $100 so I'm happy.

I am scrapping in my brain. I also am about to send some old family photos I scanned to shutterfly. One of them is a wonderful headshot of my uncle I thought was lost forever, but I found it! Yeah!

I'm doing the exact same thing- sitting at home, wishing I felt like making stuff, but just watching videos.

I DID make one quick card- but .. lost the steam right after. lol

Martha Stewart Score Board rocks!!!

I'm eating pizza, drinking wine, watching TV ... it's been a really exhausting week at work so I have NO energy for scrapping. I'm hoping tomorrow

I LOVE MY MARTHA SCORE BOARD!

Seriously use it 98% of the time I'm makin somethin!

I keep it right next to the BigShot and the paper trimmer. I even use it to quickly measure/mark a line. It's worth it- especially on days like today, when it was M's Deal of the Day and was 50% off. But you can still use a coupon! Get it!

Awesome! It's not to pricy anyway and I always have those coupons! Collecting all the tools I would like to have is $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Also, it takes a while and $$$ to get all the mists, inks, embossing powders. Yikes. Why is 1 oz of embossing powder $5? Ouch, if I got all of the ones I want that's a chunk right there. I need a MAJOR embossing powder SALE!

Luckily, embossing powder goes a LONG LONG way. When I first got into embossing, I was like, "I better get TWO bottles of the silver, cuz I love silver, and it'll probably take one bottle just to do a few things to test it out!"

I don't know how many things I've embossed and it still only looks like I've used a pinch of it...

but you're right- it is expensive for that one little bottle!

I never got any of the 'distress embossing powder.' Aren't they like .5oz or something?!?! for 5.00?!?!

I thought, if I want something I've embossed to look distressed, it'll just rub some sandpaper on it.

Nah, they are 1 oz. and they have such cool names like Worn Lipstick....makes you want them more right?

I got a 12 piece set today,(not this brand) smaller amounts but lots of colors, and I had a 50% off coupon so, this should be good for a while. I jumped in my car and ran to M's when I was working on my dragons because I wanted Lime Green. And they are terrible low on that stuff.

I still love those TH colors tho'! Broken China, Faded Jeans, Shabby Shutters. People sit around and think these names up and it works! LOL

I did NOT go supply shopping today however while I was in WM I did look to see if this particular store had the new stuff and they didnt. They had the same stale supplies and alot of Cricut carts on clearance ($29.99 was the lowest). I should be slapped because I spent almost $30 bucks on 4 packs of buttons from Buttons Galore & More.com. Yes I love buttons!

I did the same thing tonight I had no children or hubby home, started to scrapbook and couldn't get motivated, got a layout all ready and wasn't liking it so I put everything away and moved to the family room and the tv. I'm hoping I'll get some scrappin' done on Sunday. Tomorrow is senior prom day at our house so I'll be a busy Momma!!

I went to a crop. I get my pages glue-ready (a mat may be needed here or there so I take those supplies) and I got..... 78 pages completed!

Finished China, Vietnam and Halloween - they are glued down and ready to photo.

I'm getting Jakarta ready for a crop next month and then the other two ports in Indonesia. So much to do yet but I'm loving every minute of it.

When I scrap these travel things I relive them at the same time and I love that! So cool, feels like I'm back in these places when I'm working on them.

Kory, you got to get at least 1 bottle! I think you will fall in love. I did! I mainly used metallic and pearl and loved the different texture.

I'm the same I have been cleaning and doing laundry this morning but just can't get scrap motivated.

BTW, love my martha score board.

I started on a paper bag albums last night. I've got one set of pages done but not put together.

I tried to make a paper bag mini last night and found you can not use cheap bags or they come out wonky... I am going to try envelopes next and wait another 2 weeks before another craft store trip to get crisp nice bags.

Mia1979-is your picture of your new haircut? Looks fantastic! I cut off a ton of hair a week ago-about 6 inches-and I'm still not used to it. I cried a little too...

I'm trying to scrap today and I'm just not feeling it. I did alter one of those large powdered tea packages to hold all my new Washi And I made some DIY Mod Podge. I'm gunna go through my pictures and see if inspiration hits!

Just let yourself do what you want. If you don't feel like scrapping don't. If I try when I really don't feel like it, I never like the page I create.

I'm the complete opposite. Some of the ones I really wanted to put off but knew I'd better tackle them have come out the best because I had to focus on them more to get them done.

And some of the ones I really wanted to get to - I don't know why but they turned out kind of boring.

Doesn't seem to be a formula going into it as to whether I will like it or not. How much I wanted to make the page doesn't seem to play into it like I think it should.

Another one here who could be scrapping but is surfing between loads of laundry instead.

I did spend some time yesterday putting pictures into a CM Picfolio album. I also got my pictures from this week off the camera card, onto the computer, " fixed" , and uploaded to Shutterfly.

So I guess I was pretty productive after all!

Rushli- what do you mean 'cheap paper bags?' Where do you get nice ones? By 'nice,' I mean nicer than the ones I've been using. lol

I've been getting bags of paper bags at Dollar Tree- and they aren't ideal- but I've been covering a side with a strip of patterned cardstock and binding it with the bind-it-all, so it's not really a high-tech way- are you doing the classy way with the sewing machine and it's coming out wonky? I wanna know!

And okayyy I'll get the distress embossing powder! lol

-kory

Kory- I am not doing anything fancy... I used cheap WM bags that are wrinkly and hard to get flaps and such folded straight. I have not looked at dollar store ones so I have no clue how they compare. I watched YouTube videos and the ladies have such nice looking bags - they always fold nicely! I Assume they are getting their's at Ms or J's.

Don't get too mad at me when you have another collection to spend money on! lol

I have not gotten around to trying envelope minis... DH's Birthday today, and guest the past couple days... I have 2 days before guest come again, so I will spend it cleaning up the guest bedrooms. Good news is that the guests are my sister and her BF. We already told him his job is to watch the kids while we have fun being crafty. He is in LOVE, so of course he said np.
