I am in *heart* with FRED!

He finally got here today!!!! Now attacking the UPS man is NOT an appropriate thing for a grown woman to do, but........... I ripped open the box and can NOT wait to get home tonight and scrap something!

Isn't he a beauty! I will post a picture of him in action tonight, I have a LO waiting on my desk to finish up. I hope my hubby is not jealous! Sorry for the crazy picture I am at work as you can tell my the computer in the background.

Check out this picture that will be my next LO. I spent the weekend before last with my nephews and had a little photo shoot with my middle one!!! He loves the
camera and it loves him.

Here are some cute pictures from Easter. Have a great day!!!

Today was supposed to be the big day, FRED was supposed to arrive. I waited and waited like a child on Christmas. But alas NO Fred today. He was shipped to my PO BOX by accident and had to be rerouted so sooooonnnnn I will have him in my hot little hands! I hope everyone had a nice Easter. Here in "Sunny" SO FL we were not so lucky on the sun part. The kids had a blast anyway hunting for the soaked easter eggs!

Still Waiting

Ok one UPS man came today and dropped off the beautiful envelopes for my cousin's shower invitattions that I have been working on for so long. They will be done and out by friday! They are a very pretty pale yellow. But still NO FRED. I am really jonesing for him! Well went to Wal-Mart today and got my easter eggs for the hunt that we do for all the kids on easter sunday. I filled all 100 eggs!!!!!! Wow that is a lot of eggs for 4 little boys! Got some cute ones that look like Camo so those I will hide the dollars in! Man I wish I was young again. I am hopefully going to scrap SOMETHING tonight. Maybe try and work some more on my DT kit - dance.

Help I am sooooo lost. I only have a son and he is NOT into dance. What can I do with this? I have the whole line and am late at turning it in. LaVerne stop LAUGHING

Waiting for the UPS Man

When oh when will he get here with my F.R.E.D. I can not wait to get started on my scrapping with the new upright easel. I am going to be seeing my new man FRED every night once the little one is in bed. Is that cheating on hubby? :) Well Michelle with Scrapbook Central also told me that the new storage cases for the stamps should be in soon too. Yay I can start organizing my scrap space and maybe post some before and afters! I would like to get some scrapping done tonight if that is possible, I am a little on the tired side today. Not sure why.

It is soooo windy here and NO I do not live in Chicago! South FL is balmy I guess, but last night and today down right almost bordered on a mild hurricane! Well if anything good happens I will post again, but looks like tomorrow will be my next one hopefully with new LO's to show.

So back at work and looking at my email and what do I see, but my shipping confirmation of F.R.E.D. - he should be here this week!!!! I can not wait. I will post a pic as soon as it comes in. I had a busy weekend with my 3 nephews visiting and we had a very good time. I will post some pics as soon as I can have time to get them out of my camera. Today is busy at work so not a lot of time to post today. If anything good happens I will POP in to post. Have a great day!

Happy St. Patricks day! The luck of the Irish to you (say that in a brough accent)

Friday Friday Friday - (said in a conga line tune)

Yea we made it. Today we are having a nice steak lunch at work so this should be a nice end to a busy week. Got this email today and just thought I would share it. It truely made me laugh out loud......

Ladies this has to be read, laughed at and passed on. There is not a woman alive today who won't crack up over this

I was due for an appointment with the gynecologist later in the week.
Early one morning, I received a call from the doctor's office to tell me that I had been rescheduled for that morning at 9:30 am

I had only just packed everyone off to work and school, and it was already around 8:45am. The trip to his office took about 35 minutes, so I didn't

have any time to spare.

As most women do, I like to take a little extra effort over hygiene when making such visits, but this time I wasn't going to be able to make the full effort.
So, I rushed upstairs, threw off my pajamas, wet the washcloth that was sitting next to the sink, and gave myself a quick wash in that area to make sure I was at least presentable. I threw the washcloth in the clothes basket, Donned some clothes, hopped in the car and raced to my appointment.

I was in the waiting room for only a few minutes when I was called in.
Knowing the procedure, as I'm sure you do, I hopped up on the table, looked over at the other side of the room and pretended that I was in Paris or some other place a million miles away.

I was a little surprised when the doctor said, 'My, we have made an extra
effort this morning, haven't we?' I didn't respond.
After the appointment, I heaved a sigh of relief and went home. ?The rest of the day was normal. Some shopping, cleaning, cooking.

After school when my 6 year old daughter was playing, she called out from the
bathroom, 'Mommy, where's my washcloth?'
I told her to get another one from the cupboard. ?She replied, 'No, I need the one that was here by the sink, it had all my glitter and sparkles saved inside it.'

Never going back to that doctor. Ever.

That reminds me..... I need to make an appt.....

Anyway I did NOTHING I was supposed to do last night. I am really bad, but good news is my WONDERFUL, LOVELY, FANTASTIC Mommy called to ask if my son can spend the night!!! He loves it there so it worked out GREAT! Chore night! Oh well.

Have a great weekend and if anything great happens today I will pop in for an edit!

POP!!!!!! I am in for my edit!!! Here is my newest purchase - check it out.

I can not wait to get it and see how it works. I will post pics of it in action when it gets here. Check it out at LaVerne this is what I was telling you about at the 3 day crop.

What a day!

So I wake up and am running late as usual!!!!! I walk out of the front door and wow what do I see but a BEAUTIFUL chilly morning. Blue skies, white clouds!!!! Yea I can change my weather picture today! Though you can tell from the picture I am still trapped in my office. :)

Well last night I watched the boot off show of AI. I was pleased with the results though I really thought the country girl would be history! I love country, but come on she really ruined that song, considering we went to a Beatle Mania concert on Saturday. Wow what a show that was. Any way..... I did absolutly NO scrapping or card making last night and now I am really behind. 10 cards need to be made, Laundry is piling up, bathrooms need to be cleaned and floors need to be mopped. All before tomorrow night. In the words of the Beatles...HELP I really need sommebody..... Can you say housekeeper??? If only that was in the buget. So for now I am off to work ALL day then head on home to do the chores and if there is time cards! Wish me luck. Have a great day.

Hump Day!!!!

Last night I sat and watched Idol and inked the edges of the baby shower invites. Here is a quick look at what I have done so far. This is one of the options of images in the middle. This is not adhered or pop dotted and no bow so far from done.

They are coming out great. Today I was going to print out the actual wording today at work and now my printer has a black bar running down the left side of the page. Bummer!

So in response to the daily weather picture. Looking out my window at work has looked the same for the last 6!!!! Days!!!! I wish the sun would poke its head out just once!

I am still working on my swap cards. I liked the LO of the shower invite so much that I have incorporated some of it in to my cards. I cut out a round scallop of pattern paper and smaller version of solid white and inked the edges. I am going to stamp an image according to the them of Easter/Spring and Birthday on them and then add a bow. Not too bad. Making them 6x6. I love that size for cards.

Well not much else to report. My son still has a nasty cough, the weather here is nasty, it is only Wednesday!, work is work, and I have no idea what to make for dinner tonight. Oh I forgot on a brighter note, my 3 nephews are coming for a sleep over on Saturday night. My son is excited!!!! I will post pictures on Monday! Should be FUN

Tuesday, March 11, 2008


So today is just another day! Also Scout night! I love the scouts, it just seems like it rules our life sometimes. Last night my cousin and I worked in cutting out ALL the parts to her baby shower invite. Coming out very cute. Thank goodness for the cricut machine. Today during my lunch break I will be inking the edges! I will post some pics today once I get them going. Still working on my DT kit for March. All about Dance and I am really struggling. Not sure where to go with it at all. I am in a rut with the bazzill scalloped circles, but LOVE them. They look really neat on the pages.

But I really need to try something new. I also need to buckle down and finish my cards for the swap due on SATURDAY!!!!!! 5 - B-Day and 5 Easter/Spring. I have the idea just need to get them done!

Well work has been sort of slow, so I am getting caught up on a lot of little paper work. A little boring. Well slow day with news, I need to get a new daily weather picture, but our days have looked the SAME for a week now. So much for Sunny South FL.

The Time Change SUCKS!

I can not get into the swing of things at all! I spent the weekend scrapping which is ALWAYS a good time. Got to meet new people, see LaVerne, and get a lot done. Here is one of my most favorite layouts of the weekend.

I did my 2 page Layout for the Design Team at Scrapbook Central and with one more to go I am really stumped for ideas! Not so sure why this kit is killing me at all.

Coffee!!!!!!!!!!!!! I need coffee, I will try and blog more later......

First Blog in the bannerless world - Thanks La Verne!

So this is what life is like without that crazy banner chasing me everywhere I go. SWWWEEEETTTT! LaVerne was SO right. Well I am now committed, or should be, to maintaining my new BLOG! This may make it easier for me to get more LO's done and not to mention CARDS with my scraps since that is one of my New Year resolutions. I know, not the typical weight lose, but why set myself up for failure! :)

Yesterday my goals were to Clean House, Do Laundry and pack for a 3 day crop. Well..... One load of laundry was done. Packed for the crop! and the house welllll - there is always another day right.

Kids sure do like to pull out EVERY toy they own to play for 30 minutes. My son's room is usually a disaster before bedtime. Last night was an exception. Maybe he is getting the hang of Mom's crazy - PICK UP YOUR ROOM! or just doesn't want to hear it anymore. Whatever works right.

Here is a typical response I get from my son when I ask him to clean his room.

He is a crazy kid and I adore that about him. Well for today that is all I have for now. I will be gone for the weekend at the crop. Hopefully I will have a ton of new stuff to post! Can not wait to see LaVerne in action! She is GREAT! I love meeting new people and seeing their styles of scrapping and photography. That is my new goal this year too, get better at taking pics and cropping them! Have a creative weekend and enjoy!
