It is Finally starting to feel like Holiday Time

So yesterday I was outside making wreaths from the Blue Spruce that Art helped to cut down at my grandparents house IN FLIP FLOPS!!! So today there is a cold front coming in and it is actually starting to feel right.
So the countdown has begun until I am unemployed. And eventhough it is an ending to a lifetime, it is the begining of a new adventure. More info to follow.
Have a great Thanksgiving!!

I'm baaaccckk

Can you believe it? Another post and it hasn't been months, LOL. I have been busy in the scraproom. Purging and playing. Quite exciting.
It will be soon that I get to take some time off and do what I want to do, so hopefully when that time comes my room will be all pretty and ready to play LOTS!
I'm off to get ready for job #2.
Hope your day was great!

Well I'm going to try this again, I had it all written up before I left for class last night and then I got an error.
So I am going to try to get some of these collages put together so that I can show everyone some of the things going on. I'll go through all of the pics starting in the upper left and going clockwise.
The first one is my favorite of the fishing season. He caught this blue gill at our friend's house in Renault. He was so proud. Then it goes into the first day of Kindergarten. His eyes look SO blue in the picture. He was so ready to go to school. And he is still loving it, so we are quite happy. Then while I was sick, Reed got to carve 2 of the 3 pumpkins that we had. This was him in the middle of his "creation" of a jack o lantern. He is so crafty. The last picture is of Reed fishing at Carlyle Lake. We went up there to join in Family, Fishing, Fun which was hosted by the local CCR&R (Child Care Resource and Referral). We had fun and Reed came in 2nd in the son and parent category. He got a framed certificate and a gift card to McDonald's.

So there is a little bit. I will be back in the next couple of days, I am actually getting some scrappy things done, so hopefully I'll have pics to share of that next time.
Til then,

What do you do when you are home sick?

Lay in bed and raise your blog from the dead. :) With the addition of Cricket Broadband to our house, I am able to bring the lappy into the bedroom while I totally feel like crud.

There has been a lot of things that have happened since I last posted.
*The Race for the Cure, was AWESOME. I have some great photos to share from the papparatzi.
*LOTS of fishing
*Reed started Kindergarten and he LOVES it.
*An Astronomy class at SWIC, slowly getting that list completed.
*I joined an advocacy group, called Leaders In Action, which was put together to help child care providers in southern Illinois be heard and represented.
*Breast Cancer Walk at SWIC
*A class trip to the Magic House
*Had our first parent teacher conference of the year
*Pumpkin carving, lol, well that just happened so that I was able to keep him occupied for a while. Got to lay down on the couch and watch him.
*Lots of scrappy projects, and I actually took pictures of some of them, lol. Once I get them loaded I'll get them posted.

So there is the shortened version of everything.

It's Race Time

I know I know, it has been forever since I last updated. There is so much to tell everyone. I am hoping to overhaul this blog and get it up to speed with atleast a weekly update. So there are a couple big things that I need to get up here and then I am going to go tinker in the dashboard of this blog.
#1 The Race for the Cure is June 13th and I have started a team this year. Some of the girls at work wanted to get together so here it is. Our team is The Dream Team. If you aren't doing anything on the 13th please join our team (online registration ends on May 22nd) or you could also pledge to our cause.

#2 I have joined the Clear Scraps ladies as they have traveled into a new venture. They are coming out with a month kit (or two) and I was asked to design for it. The first one comes out this month, so be on the look out.

Ok I am off to mess around with this blog.

Technical Difficulties

Sorry folks, for some reason Blogger has decided to go to a huge format even when I load my pictures as small.
I hope to get this taken care of soon. If you have some suggestions please let me know.
So what do you do when you have lost some weight and can't fit into your old jeans anymore? Well if you are me, you make a cover for your new mini album, LOL. The seam of my jeans runs down the spine of the book. I used a BoBunny Naked Album as my base.

I used a Pink Paislee Topsider, some Ali Edwards stamps from Technique Tuesday. A Heidi Swapp letter covered in Silver Paint Dabber and some Martha Stewart glitter. My sweet little butterfly is actually a Shrinky Dink. I used a die and ran it through my Big Shot and then Reed had a blast shrinking it. He loves that machine.
My LOVE banner, is created with an acrylic album, LOTS of the new Basic Grey Bittersweet. Letters from Pressed Petals, flowers from Heidi Swapp and Prima, Felt from Fancy Pants, crystals from Prima, Jeweled Brad from Heidi Swapp. Various ribbons and little trinkets from my stash.

I love this cute banner. It will be hanging in my room. I was thinking about adding some clips and hanging my favorite pictures of my guys from it.
Thanks for looking.
