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,
I hope you are all having a great day. I hope you enjoyed the video I posted yesterday. I will have another one soon. Probably within a day or two. Today I am not going to be able to scrap much. I am going Christmas shopping with my dad. We have one this every year since I was little. Than tonight I have a concert to go to. My sn is in choir and they are doing a concert at the school. 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.
