Where is Winter??

Since we have had no real winter yet this year, and I have all these beautiful winter papers I have had to do some thinking....

Ideas For Winter Papers:

1. Scrap a Winter Tradition

2. Scrap somethin you can only do in the Winter

3. Scrap pics of the kids in Winter clothes

4. Journal, journal, journal. Create a page with a story about your family's love for all things Winter.

I am trying really hard to find my inner organizer and use her!! I have a lot less scrap space now, so the past couple of days instead of scrapping I am organizing!

Oh Christmas Tree

So this year we have ABSOLUTELY NO ORNAMENTS!! NO STOCKINGS, etc... They were all left in the attic of the house in VA. So being that funds are ULTRA low this year, it was time to improvise....

What would you do??

Ok so a couple of months ago I was supposed to work on a project with a store/kit club. It was supposed to be a project of MY DESIGN for their blog with instructions and such.

We all know how crazy my life has been lately. I had some time this AM to just surf, so I checked out above mentioned blog, and, well a very similar project is there. SO NOT as nice as mine, but it was there. Now I am thinking... what the hay!!!! That is just wrong. We have had many discussions on boards about DTers lifting and how unkooth that is. Now for a store owner to take someones idea and use it when they have no more affiliation with this designer is SERIOUSLY WRONG!!!!!

What do you think?? Is it wrong??

Carpe Diem

Had a FAB Halloween with the kids yesterday. Lot's of candy, cute costumes. Oh and Sal's Pizza!!! A good friend Gerry hooked the kids up with GOBS of candy and the cutest cupcakes. She is a sweetheart!

So I am no longer a member of the AMM DT :( They had too many DT's for just taking over the company. I was super sad, but realized that I only had 3 assignments since I started with them so I am not missing out on much.

OK well you all know how much I love to scrap, and try to make everyone around me scrap as much as me too right?? Well I think I am going to have some blogging fun. So keep an eye on this Blog for some new exciting stuff!! I am going to sieze the day and spead my love of scrapping with others!

Ever feel like life is just spinning around in limbo?? I do!!! 2 steps forward and 2 steps back not going anywhere. Just here in limbo, stuck in the everyday, never moving forward.

I think I need to do alot of scrapping this upcoming weekend to find a little sanity!! Or at least escape limbo for a bit.

The LO of Wil is the Sept kit and the second is extras from the TSE store, mixed with a little kit.
