I have my mojo back!!

Yes I do!! I went through most of my scrapbooking stuff and was honest to myself about whether or not I would actually use certain items. I have a massive stack to get rid of. I need to remember to not get caught up in the hype of having all the new and only getting what I will actually use. With that weight lifted off my shoulders I was so ready to scrap! I really do think that having too much stuff can hinder your creativity. I finished my Emma Maya Road album and did another LO using lots of random goodies that I can now see (hahaha). I would have pictures but my camera battery was dead so had to re-charge. Try and post pics tomorrow. Gotta go finish my laundry!!

Proof that I am a scrapper.

Ok, so I am not good at taking pics of my LOs (tips?) and I had more to show but I can't figure out how to make them right-side up (does that make sense?) If you know how to make blogger posts look good, share the knowledge and help me out!! Maybe if I had more then 5 minutes to post I would be a little better. Hahaha.

These are some pages I have done over the last few months. I actually scrapped a bit last night. Worked on Maya Road album for Emma and scrapped a page using the Making Memories new Easter line. Love the colors on that one! Going to clean up my area tonight and try and post a RAK next week...gotta make room for all the new stuff!!

In love...

with the new Maya Road and Fiskars punches!! I have always been a chipboard girl so it is no surprise that I am loving the new mini trees and such but I am not a punch fan but these new borders are too stinkin cute!! I used the Uppercrest one for some card samples for the store (try and post those later this week!) and I am definately going to invest in that one! Very elegant. I actually scrapped a bit this weekend (shocker I know) and I think that my mojo is coming back. I need to clear some space for the new goodies that will be flooding the store during the next few weeks so I will be doing a RAK this weekend. Post more on that later but if you want some new or slightly used goodies, check back in a couple of days! Back to work chekcing in the new Heidi Grace and Fiskars!!
Check out the store for the punches: The site is a little bare at the moment. We are cleaning it up and will be re-vamping it a bit over the next month or so.

At least my ankles look good.

So I have been working out at the Y for about a month now and I do have more energy and I think I am handling stress better. (Dave is at least still alive for the moment. hahaha) It is just irking me that I can see a difference in Dave but the most I see myself is my boobs are smaller (much to hubby's dismay) and my ankles look slimmer. Totally not fair cuz I work harder then him and I don't have a Mt Dew addiction. I even gave up my precious Dt Coke! Grrrr!

I will try and post some pics tomorrow. Finally found my camera cord. Yeah!! I have no scrappin mojo whatsoever. I am lovin all the new goodies that I have seen from CHA and that will be coming into the store soon. Can't wait to play with the new Maya Road mini trees!! So hopefully that will get me scrappin. Cross your fingers!!

Let's try this again.

Ok, those that know me well know that I have repeatedly tried to have a blog. Hasn't worked out so well for me in the past, but one of my goals for this year was to start and keep up my blog. I was also supposed to start an All About Me album and even got Amy involved for accountability but haven't even done 1 LO. Amy has though, so maybe it wasn't all in vain!! So I will keep this short and sweet and just update a bit.
Cam, Caden and Emma are good. Being their normal loud and curoius even though Em has definately had attitude lately. Dave says she gets it from me but I don't see it. (hahhahaha) Dave is a stay-at-home Daddy for the moment. Hopefully his work calls him back ASAP. He had a lead from a former co-worker but that hasn't panned out yet. I am still at Scrap Happy. We have a mutt, I mean, dog, now thanks to Dave getting her while I was out-of-town. She really isn't too bad.....! That's all for now. Commet and let me know that you read this. My goal is 2 posts a week. Shouldn't be too bad.
