Layout of the day: July 11

This is SO not one of my better layouts, lol. I'm not even posting this one on 2peas. But the way I'm looking at it is, "Well. It's done." *Ü*

Thanks for looking!!

Layout a day: July 8th

Not much I could do with this picture, but I love the flowers and am so happy I still had the card!!

The colors are not showing up very well, but it is a very pretty pink and black combo of papers.

Thanks for looking!!

Layout a day: July 7

Still using my stash and finally scrapping older pictures that I've been putting off.

I really like this one!!

American Crafts papers and metal letters
Heidi Swapp tapes and brads
Bazzill flowers
Misc buttons, ribbon, rubons
Prima flowers

So, I'm getting motivated.

I'm getting motivated to get back into my cleaning and organzing groove. I've lost it recently since I've been so busy with the store and procrastinating at my job at home. It's time to get back in touch with my inner Martha. I'm so much happier when my house is organized, and I've really been slacking. When I'm organized, I feel like scrapping, or lounging with the kids, or even getting my other job done. When the house is a wreck, I don't want to do anything. Go figure, lol.

First on the agenda: pick a room/area to clean and organize.

I *had* started on my office a few weeks ago, and I got a TON accomplished. Three bags full of shred, two bags of trash...and that was just from cleaning off my desk and credenza ! Now it is time to go back in and finish.

I want to get it done from start to finish. Here is a small list of things I need to do in there.
  • Clean out desk drawer and get rid of junk
  • Finish going through credenza drawers, organizing and purging as I go
  • Get all appliance manuals for this house in a binder
  • Go through toy/household manuals and toss old ones and file new ones
  • Clean up my book shelf and buy something so that my books quit falling through, lol
  • Hang up my Disney pictures (this is going to be a Disney-themed office)
  • Take down remnants from when my scrap room was in there
  • Make and hang some curtains for the window
  • The usual cleaning: dusting, straightening up, etc.

Hopefully soon I'll be able to get my futon/bed for that room and then I'll have a nice little guest room!!

I'll post pics soon!!

Layout a day: July 6th

Here it is! I squeaked it out before the end of the day!!

Check out this scrapbooker!!

My dear friend Sharla turned me onto this *awesome* scrapbooker last night. Seriously, I want to copy all of her layouts!!

Such bright, vibrant colors. Beautiful embellishments and layout designs. She does fantastic work!!!

(I can't figure out how to make her name a link. I'm having a bonehead moment.)

Check her out!!

Money. The root of all evil.

It just has to be.

When you don't have it, you desperately need it. When you DO have it, everyone else wants it and then it's gone. When you get more, it goes somewhere else too.

You need it to survive. You need it to do just about anything nowadays.

It's pure evil.

If I didn't love it so much...I would hate it.

Layout a day: July 5th

Here is today's layout!

I didn't realize what a challenge this would be as I try to use my stash and use older pics in my layouts. I'm really struggling, lol.

This is a bright, simple layout of my darling son when he was three. He's all of seven now, lol.

Thanks for looking!!

We're changing the name of the store... "Scrap and Sauna."

Our air conditioning went out in the store today and, lucky for us, it was ONLY 120 outside. I was a completely sopping wet fool all day long until I closed down the store early. I just could not take it any longer.

I did manage to get the class kits all ready, so that is one thing that is done.

Please, cross your fingers that the air is working tomorrow!! I'm a sissy when it comes to the heat...especially if I'm indoors!!

Layout a day: July 4th

Here is today's layout. I'm really happy that I'm staying on track after getting off to a late start!!!

This is a plain-jane layout as I'm trying to use my stash and keep on my spending freeze.

Thanks for looking!!

Happy Independence Day!!

Today, we have a whole lotta NOTHING planned!! D is working part of the day, the store is closed, and the kids are home from rec. So, each kiddo picked out a movie to watch, we're gonna junk it in front of the tv all day long and then watch the fireworks from our back yard. C is sick today (has been for a couple of days), so we want her all well before they leave for soccer camp next week, so we're staying home tonight.

Have a fantastic holiday!!

Holy carp it's been a long time!!

Where, oh where to begin??? It has been ages since I posted and I am ashamed!! So much has happened but there is no way I can get caught up now, so I will just begin with today. :)

My friends and I decided...well, my friends decided after I bullied them into doing do one layout a day for the month of July. Any extras are just that, extra. But we are to commit to one layout a day, either one page or two.

Well, we got off to a fantastic start. Not.

I forgot on Sunday and almost on Monday until S called me to remind me, lol. She, by the way, had not done hers either, lol. So, then I called D...who was shopping in Vegas...and told her she needed to hurry home so she could do her daily layout. Hahaha. Then, I called and left T a message, and she was "conveniently" out of town. Uh-huh. Great starts for all of us.

I completed two layouts on Monday, to make up for Sunday, and then I did a layout today, so *I* am current (nanny-nanny-boo-boo to you all). And here they are:
