I'm in though I may be posting my projects later in the month. I have my room torn apart and am working on painting right now. I at least have the walls repaired and the primer done now I can't wait to get the color on and then I have to work on dh to get him to get my new furniture put in and the shelves up. That was my Christmas present. It's only taken 4 months to get to it! That's what going back to work and having teenagers has done to me!

Good morning!

I'm hoping spring is finally here in VA too, Michelle. Sunday, we were in the 20s with snow and ice. Monday, we were in the 60s and today we are supposed to be in the mid 70s. Strangest weather!

Hello to all and have a great day!

Morning!! The mailman has just come by an brought me a couple of carts!!!! French Manor and Walk in My Garden!! Just in time to use on those Spring layouts.

Thank you Norma for all your work, sent you my addy.

I'm enjoying a bit of fresh air today but if the sun doesn't stay out I may have to close my window. The breeze is still a little cool, plus there is noise from barking dogs, construction workers next door, and the small air planes that buzz the airport a mile away.

Time to go play! It will be getting busy around here later in the month so I best get most of my scrapping done at the beginning.

Tina, looking forward to your bomb!

Thanks Norma! Appreciate all you do! Have fun on your rounds...and a special day tomorrow!

Worked outside for a while this morning...pretty humid...but I am not complaining! Going to my scraproom for a while...have to pick TNT up at 3:15. Dana, their Mom, is going to have her nails done..she is going by HL for me! I needed some vellum for a project. Saved me a trip...:)

Have a great day everyone!

And Michelle jumps starts us out of the box

I'm working on another box card- wasn't quite satisfied with the first one- many of the same cuts, but some other sizes & colors- we'll see how it comes out.

Have a fun trip Normal. Thanks for all you do for this challenge- I love seeing what everyone creates- so much inspiration.

Thanks Norma - what an unexpectedly wonderful surprise!!!! All of us winners are so thankful to you.

Hope to get some pages done this week and have crop on Sunday.

I really don't like it when job hunting and taxes interfere with my creativity. Well, not to mention the gorgeous weather! lol

Happy birthday Norma! Have fun!
Off to get ACU.

Never made it into my scraproom- well to create anyway.
Moved around some stuff, hung more peg board, etc.
when will I ever be satisfied with that room!!

Shopped a bit, nothing fun- light jacket for work, fertilizer, yip-eee!!

Spent the rest of the day out front with the DGDs- the "kindies" are learning to ride w/o training wheels.

Sounds like everyone is doing fairly well!

Maybe I can make it into my room tomorrow to play with that new machine!

Happy Birthday, Norma! Hope it is a day filled with fun and relaxing.

My room is torn apart but it is painted...except the trim which I am starting today. Then I am hoping my dh will help get my new furniture set up this weekend so I can start putting things in place and have a real craft room, all mine!

Been dealing with the stomach flu with the youngest. Hoping that is where it stops. He seems to be doing better today. DH puts himself in isolation whenever anyone even coughs so I'm sure he will be fine. I, on the other hand, still have to play mom and take care of them and clean after them so it would probably be me if it gets passed on. He used to be really good at taking care of them when they were little and sick but now that they are teens he thinks they are on their own. Major germaphobe. Funny thing is, my oldest showed his tendency to take after dad and pretty much quarantined himself too. Wouldn't even touch the donuts that were on the counter because Chris had been in them the day before he got sick. For a teenage boy that is major!

Lisa, that's funny about the donuts! Donuts seem to have a pretty good pull- on me anyway! We are suppose to be 55 and partly sunny, sure doesn't seem like that now-gray and 28-yuck!

Trish- it is gray and yucky. I was looking forward to at least one more day of the sunshine before snow tonight and tomorrow. I like that Highlands Ranch sits right on the 3-6 inch line...Hoping it's more like the Denver's 1 inch prediction.

What is it about craft studios that always need those finishing touches?? It sounds like you are making great headway Lisa!!

I can't seem to get mine done to my complete satisfaction!! I still have too much stuff and no where to go.......if I am still complaining about the same thing come this fall then it's time to start hauling it out the door or give it away as RAK's.
Why this fall?? I am waiting for my DIL to move and get settled to see what all she wants and will have room for in her crafting space. In the meantime I am piling up all the things I don't want. One of the major problems is "Houses in the south have NO STORAGE!" That's why you see so many cars not in the garage! It's used for storage. Our garage is filled with equipment and my car.

I can well understand about becoming a germaphobe, as the years go by and the older I get I have become more and more of one! Or maybe I'm just the one that is always saying "Don't touch that till you wash your hands!!!"

Headed off to do, I don't know what.........

Blue skies peeking thru- I'm getting out in it before it all turns to gray and snow.

Shopping online for the jacket I never found yesterday and picked up a new toaster (mine is 100yrs old) and also got 2 packs of pens for my new Cricut.

Now out for some hands on shopping! (I am not a fan of online shopping).
Accomplished nothing in my room today-so far.

Quick check in! Getting ready for dinner with the family. I had a great time at Bunco last night-time with friends is always welcome.

Thank you ALL for the birthday wishes-it's been a good (and busy) day.

Ginger and Becky I will add you on the first page later this evening.

Happy Birthday day. GLad your day was nice!!

we have a snow storm heading my way. they are predicting 8-14 inches this time. I;m so over this junk.

got a few things in the works hoping to finish them up by the end of the week.

That's funny about the donuts Lisa. When I:m at work at people are sick I;m like umm yeah did you wash your hands or wipe that down. At home I try to keep sickness away but I know with the oldest DD we are in for just about everything.

Another day with nothing accomplished?? How does this happen! The day is just gone! It NEVER goes this fast when I'm at work.

Shopped, by the time I got home DGD1&2 were here from school (DGD3 is home with pink eye.....lovely) played again out front and then I did manage 2 loads of laundry and vacuumed the upstairs, then back to the store (for tomorrow's dinner) and picked up a pizza, 9 at night and I'm shoveling in pizza- and I wonder why I can't lose weight! But I realized all I had eaten all day was a few breadstick around noon.

So I've been going to Savers (like a goodwill for those who don't know what Savers is) and have been finding these nice little shelves and such- found a really nice shelf thingy for like $4 and I so thought, or was hoping it would fit my stickles- well it ended up not fitting them, ( I kinda knew it wouldn't ) but it has like evenly spaced divots(msp?) can't figure out what this shelf is actually meant for but was thinking maybe displaying golf balls- do people do that? I'm still going to keep it, paint and find something to put on it!
That was a long story for something you ladies probably still can't figure out what I'm talking about!

My HL run however was nice, pp at 50% off! like I need that!
And a few other things fell in my cart as I strolled the aisles!

And then my online shopping fell through- grrr. PayPal got it but for some reason Walmart.com didn't ? Back at it tomorrow.

I chatted way too much!

Good morning!

It was 77 here yesterday! I opened the windows after I got home from work and enjoyed all of the sounds. Today it is gonna rain and bring in a cold front. Oh well....nice while it lasted.

Trish, I have a similar shelf that I bought at an auction last summer. And like you, I got it for my stickles. And no, mine didn't fit either. And yes, I think my shelf is meant for golf balls too. I still have the shelf but not quite sure how I can use it!

LisaP, hope you don't catch that bug from your son!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Yes, Trish. That is the picture out my back window too. I was supposed to be subbing today but I ended up with the stomach flu hitting in the middle of the night. I was miserable and never even looked out the window so when Nathan came in as he was leaving for school and asked if he could use the Pilot instead of his car so he didn't have to clean his car and drive in the snow with it I said, "no, stop being lazy and go clean your car" thinking it wasn't supposed to be too big of a deal and the roads weren't going to be bad after warm weather. (DH does not like him driving my car after his accidents.) Well guess who got stuck...not once but twice. The school has a big hill coming up to the parking lot and a huge hill into the parking lot so students are constantly getting stuck while they have to stop. OOPS! Good experience for him right? lol

Lisa, that IS a huge hill going up to the school- every time I see people biking up it, I always think "how the heck can they do that"!!
Ooops on the car trade! But I know what you mean about letting them take your car. Especially if they've had accidents- makes ya leery for sure.

Got a bunch of my stuff done in my room- still need to paint my new little shelves- but obviously can't in this weather- bugs me, but it'll have to wait.

Holy smokes! Nope, Trish, I haven't been around snow in a while now, but I don't think that's 1" either... YIKES! (pretty tho!) Stay warm and dry!

Oops Lisa! Yes, that is a good learning experience though! I remember getting stuck on a hill in my old pickup. Rattles the nerves, but taught some important driving in the snow lessons that I still use to this day! He'll get over it!

I'm acu to here and off to get cu on love! Got a crop Saturday afternoon so hoping to upload three projects after that!

The redo was to get all the little shelves that I have been buying and painting, up. Also, took out the DGDs work area- it seems it is just mostly DGD3 who is here enough to be in there, so I said she can just work on the other side of my desk- gives me more room in my scraproom and I think looks neater/not as cluttered.
I still need to paint the 2 shelves, once winter leaves...again!
I wish I wasn't as anal about things matching or "lining up"- it would sure be a lot easier!! ( note the green painted ATG!)
I really like how my 6x6 pp pads and ribbon turned out. Before I had the ribbon at the top and empty pegboard hiding behind it. Dropped down the ribbon and utilized that precious wall space!!

I'm tired now! And I also need to stay out of Savers- no more cute little storage pieces!!

That's a lot of snow Trish! We got just a sprinkling overnight...but I woke up with a sore throat and ds with a running nose. Ugh!

And your room looks awesome! Love how organized everything is!

Finally acu on love and the first page is updated too.

RAK winners, I have received your info and will be mailing out RAK's on Monday.

Arrived in Atlanta around 2p and then I got to hand deliver the RAK to Linda at 6:30p when she picked me up for dinner! She took to me downtown Atlanta and we got to walk around Centennial Olympic Park then went to midtown to have dinner. All along the way she pointed out places of interest. She is one of the most interesting people I have met in a long time. I thoroughly enjoyed my evening with her. And she offered to escort me around tomorrow too to see Margaret Mitchell's house and the Coca-Cola museum. How lucky am I to have a scrapbook friend here in Atlanta! Hugs to you Linda

When I left the house this morning dh saw me put the cartridge in my bag and he asked me why I was taking scrapbook stuff with me. He laughed when I told him I was bringing it to a scrapbook friend, he said, "you guys are everywhere!"

Becky glad to see you back this month.

Deana, Jennifer and Ginger glad to see you joining us again.

A big welcome to Angela our newbie!

Trish and Lisa OMG on the snow you got. And Trish your room looks great (I admit I am a little jealous!)

Sharon I would love to have that view from my window, looks beautiful.

Sonja have fun at your crop.

Amanda sorry to hear about the sore throat, hope you start feeling better soon.

Chris loved your layout, so very heartfelt. I happy you are part of our group and happier that you feel that you are a part of our group

Gotta get rested for tomorrow, talk to ya'll soon

Well sorry Lisa and Trish that I didn't warn you about a big storm heading your way. We've had nothing but rain/snow/sleet/sun/small hail/more snow/more rain for 3 days. And yes it did all that in a day just depended on what the clouds decided to do. LOL! Wait 5 minutes and it would change!
Trish your room looks awesome! And yes they do make shelves for golf balls. My mother in law had one. Each golf course puts their logo on the balls and then you can collect where you have golfed. I know golfers are as bad as scrapbookers because my husband is one! Trying to think of what you could put on those shelves. If I get a brainy silly idea I will share it.

We went to AZ the end of Feb. first of March and I loved it! So warm...the days I was hurting I only had to walk about 200 yards and I was in a hot tub to ease away the pain. I asked my dh if I had to come home and he said no....but I knew I had to get back and make cards and mini books for the shop. But I have lost my mojo!

boricuapar (did I spell that right?) said:
And to everyone struggling with reorganizing their creative space - it's a never ending story.
Well I am entering that rank and don't know where to begin! I have been purging a little. I got the closet cleaned out. Gave away 3 walmart bags full, and have thrown away 2 garbage bags full out of my room. Now I don't know where to go next. We bought the new flooring to go in there and I am trying to reorganize and purge what I can before we move it all out. I know how I want my space when I get done...well most things. Graphed it out, but I have one wall that is troubling me...and two options to go! If I can't figure it out soon...I may be asking you all!

It's good to be back...and I am ACU!

Let's keep our fingers crossed that the mojo comes back soon!
