That's how much scrapping I've gotten done the last couple of days. I did work on my coupon binder some though. Can you believe it's STILL not done! Gosh I hope it's worth all this trouble! I'm still hoping once I get organized it'll get faster.

Nothing too exciting to tell you today. The GE man came out today to look at the fridge cuz it was making noise when dispensing ice cubes. Of course, it worked beautifully and didn't make a sound while he was here. Why is that? The worst part? When my sis and the gang were here for dinner tonite, the friggin thing made the crazy noise again! Ugh, that repairman must've thought we were wackos. I hate when the happens.

I hope to get some scrapping done soon - this blog is so boring without pictures! LOL

I told you!

I knew I would fall behind on the BP LOAD challenge! Ah, but I intend to get ahead of the game - next week! LOL I have other stuff to take care of and I 've gotta get busy making stuff for ebay.

My mom is coming today - YIPEEE! I wonder how soon I can pawn off the kids on her....hmmm..

LPSC is having a crop in February - join us! It won't be a big deal - just a little crop to get our feet wet for the REALLY BIG benefit crop in May. We'll be trying to raise money for ITP research then. My dear friend Christina's daughter was diagnosed with ITP last year - otherwise I may never had heard of it! Check out this video Christina's sister made: Ashley & ITP and click here to find out more about ITP. Scary, huh?

For the benefit of our non-scrapbooking friends (gasp!): A crop is when a bunch of scrapping ladies (and/or gents) get together to scrapbook. Since our LPSC sisters are all over the US (and the world!) we are hosting an on-line crop. Basically, the design team (ladies 'in charge') will post challenges and games for participants to complete. There will be prizes, too! Challenges could be as simple as 'use black and white photos to create a scrapbook page' - things like that. Digital scappers are welcome (MOM)! So, stop by the LIFE PRESERVER'S CLUB and join the fun!

Gotta go finish cleaning now :(

Manic Monday.......

I didn't get my Christmas decorations down. I didn't start the Valentine's day projects I have to do. I didn't finish the laundry or shine the floors like I wanted to. *sigh* Oh well, there's always tomorrow!

Did I say 'Happy 3 King's Day' yesterday??? Happy belated then. I'm thinking I'm gonna do it up with the kids next year. It is, after all, the 12th day of Christmas! So many of my cultural traditions are lost on me and my kids - I'm thinking it's time to bring them back.

I got my day 7 layout done for the BP LOAD challenge. I hope to start my Valentine's day stuff tmrw but I've got lot's of cleaning to do before my Mom gets here! She's arriving on Wednesday and she's staying with my sister!! What's up with that?? LOL (just kidding mom & miv). That's ok. I'm still hitting them up for babysitting services. Isn't that what aunts and granmothers are for?? I need some me time. Maybe I can finally get that manicure my MIL sent me money for. Isn't she sweet. I about cried when I opened the card she sent me with the gift of manicure money inside!

I know, I'm blessed.

Good nite!!

It's A New Year

So, I've made some decisions and some changes.

I'm not sure if it was the Christmas season or just life in general but the last couple of months were extremely busy for me and so stressful. I had my commitments to the OUAT & LPS Design Teams, custom orders and gifts to make and a household to maintain. Having a baby in the house has made everything go so much more slowly! It seems that the days I set aside for specific projects are the days that Ava doesn't sleep or Ethan runs amok.

My children are my priority so, in order to reduce my workload (and pressure) I've resigned from the Once Upon A Time design team. I'll still be selling on ebay but now I can create at a pace that is more comfortable for me without feeling like I'm letting the team down or failing on my commitment.

I've also decided to close my Ebay store (the fees are KILLING me) and concentrate on stocking my website. It'll be a slow go for a while till Ava gets on a schedule. Hopefully, I can make the site as successful as ebay has been for me - minus the exhorbitant fees!

I was able to work on some pages last nite (till about 2am!) and this morning (between loads of laundry). I'm all caught up on the BP LOAD challenge. Of course, tmrw I have a full day so I'm sure I'll fall behind again! LOL

Have a wonderful week everyone!!
