the new year

Hello everyone,
It is new years eve and I wanted to give you an update on what to expect from me in the next year to come. First of all. I plan on making this blog even better in the upcoming year. I want to have blog candy giveaway at least once a month I also want to post a haul video every Friday. I am also planning on doing several tutorials and post some new minis. I know that is a lot of activity but I am hoping to make this blog a regular stop for many of my fellow scrappers. I go to various blogs with the hope that I can catch a cool tutorial, haul or mini album video. Sometimes I find what I am looking for and sometimes I do not. I want this blog to be a place where my fellow scrappers can go and know on any given day what they might find. So that is why I am making it my mission in the upcoming year to post videos on certain days. I hope you all have a happy and safe new Year's eve and I will talk to you in 2010

just a quick note

Hello everyone,
I hope you are all having a great day. Me, just surfing Youtube and a few other sites looking for insperation and a little motivation. I have found a few tutorials and projects I am going to try to make. I am also gathering my thoughts for the upcoming year. I always make a new year's resolution. I try all year to remind myself to keep this resolution. I never make one that is out of my reach so it is impossible to complete. This year I am trying something new. This is the year I minimize. I want to minimize everything. What this means to me is that I am going through my wardrobe and getting rid of some items. It is very difficult because I always think I can wear that later or what if I really want to wear that it is gone? Well now is the time to forget the pack rat in me and just say goodbye. If I have not worn it in the last 6 months it is gone. Wow is that going to be hard but I can do it. This minimizing does not stop with my clothing it also applies to scrapbooking. I am going to limit my scrapbooking purchases to products that I will use in a current mini I am doing. I will try very very hard to limit spontaneous purchases. Also I am applying a budget to my spending. I am limiting my spending to a strcit budget. I use to see and buy. I would watch a haul see an item I want and go buy it well in the process of buying I refuse to just buy one item on line at a store so that meant buying several items. Well in 2010 I am going to stop that. Ths is not to say that I wil not stumble and fall off this path I am on but I will quickly regroup and get refocused. Finally my pictures. I have 5 memory card full of pictures that need to be stored on cd and scrapbooked. Now let me tell you I know for a fact that 3 of those memory card contain over 1,000 pictures. This is ot going to be easy but again focus and determination are key to my success. Plus that meas I have some ability to buy a new product to use in that mini. So please tell me your new years resolution. I am anxious to hear what everyone is doing. Thanks for stopping by.

Great News

Hello everyone. I want to first and foremost wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. I hope you are all having a safe and wonderful Christmas. Now for my great news. Me and my boyfriend having been dating 11 years 3 weeks and some odd days. Well tonight he asked me to marry him. It is special because 40 years ago my dad asked my mom to marry him on Christmas eve. My dad asked my mom at his parents house, the same house he grew up in. Chris asked me to marry him at my parents house, the same house I grew up in. It was very special and romantic. I am so very happy. Like I said it has been 11 years in the making. Well I hope you all have a great holiday.

Just a note

Hello everyone,

It will be fun listening to all the christmas carols and seeing him preform. They really have some great preformances. So as you can see I have a pretty packed day. Looooove it. I love being busy. Even if it is just creating my latest mini. So that is it for now. Tank you so much for stopping by.

My mom bought me some goodies for my birthday. This is part 2. Sorry about the sideways video taping

Saturday, November 7, 2009

Hello everyone.
I hope you are all having a great day. I just found out that one of my many cousins and her hubby are expecting their first child. I am so happy for them. Now I can make a baby scrapbook for them for christmas. or maybe a couples scrapbook and include a few baby pages. Either way now I know what she is getting for Christmas. Yeah!!! Babies are so wonderful. So I have been very busy getting some mini albums made for christmas. I promise to post videos soon. But these are going out as gifts and I don't want to take the chance that someone in my huge family might see one and thats it. The surprise is over. But I promise I will have at least 10 videos before you know it. I have so many mini's to make. I have done 5 so far. Not bad but definately a long way from being done. I must admit I am hooked on youtube. I love watching all of your mini album videos and tutorials. I loooooooove them. So please keep them coming. I really start getting the shakes and withdrawls if I don't get my daily fix. So thank you all for stopping by and I will keep you updated on the happenings in my little world.

Hello everyone,
I hope you are having a great day. It is a little windy and rainy. Perfect for this time of year. The leaves are blowing and the wind is whipping about it is great ambience for Halloween. Just what the ghosts and witches ordered. Anyway I spent the day with my mom doing a little supply shopping for my scrap room. Yeah!!! I now need to organize my scraproom. I have watched numerous videos on other scraprooms and how you ladies organize your goodies. Well I am in the process of doing the same. When I feel my room is presentable I will do a video. Until then I will gladly watch your videos. Until next time

Good morning

Hello everyone
I hope everyone is enjoying their morning so far. I wanted to get my day started by updating my blog. Last night I orered some goodies from Blue Moon Scrapbooking store. I love Basic Grey products so I ordered some paper pads, brads and buttons. Then I placed an order with Scrapbooking Alley for some more Making Memories sortables containers. Scrapbooking Alley has free shiping and no sales tax on any size order. What a great deal. My boyfriend decided to sleep in a little today so I am going to take advantage of my free time and get to work on a mini I doing for a gift. So I hope everyone has a great day.:}

update on the happenings

Hello everyone,
I hope everyone is having a great day. I have been very busy which is why I have not posted anything recently. Last week my son turned 18. Than on Friday Mathew had a homecoming parade he was in. He ran for homecoming king. On Saturday he had the Homecoming dance. He was not crowned king unfortunately. However, he did have a good time riding in the convertable thru town and then the dance on Saturday. I wish the weather would have cooperated more. It was raining off and on both days. Other than that I have been busy working on a mini album. I will be posting videos soon. So keep checking back. Have a great day!!

Hello everyone,
Today was a long day. I just figured out how to set up this blog..UUUURGHH. It took me forever to design it the way I wnted it. I may still change a few things but for now it is a good starting point. I am also working on making a mini album and I will be posting it soon. I also plan on posting product information and reviews. I have become aware that not many products are reviewed so I plan to take products and review them also show how I have used that product in my album. Any questions please feel free to ask. I am happy to answer or reply to your comments and questions.
Have a great day!!!
