And there ya have 'em!
Its been snowing since I woke up this morning.
Other than a big trip to the grocery store, I pretty much scrapped and worked around the house all day 🙂
I also organized some of my scrap stuff. I found a ton of embellishments from kits I’ve bought from noelmignon.com, but I am just not good at using them on my layouts. Gonna try to incorporate what I have into future layouts and give some to Michelle or a friend and see if they can use them.
I know today was my first day off for spring break, but I swear it feels like the week is already over. Time goes way too fast and a week is hardly any time in the grand scheme of things, is it? So many things I want to accomplish this week (things to do and people to see) and I just won’t have nearly enough hours……
I scrapped for a little while on Saturday night, these are the layouts I put together…..
I added the black borders so that you could see the white paper on the white blog background.
The title in the first one got screwed up…as I was letting the glue pen dry, I left the room for a little while. Came back and discovered that one of my cats (Pharaoh), walked over the layout and then walked across the dining room table, leaving little glitter footprints everywhere. Little shit! I also discovered that same day that his new favorite place to warm up and take a nap is on top of my laptop keyboard (I never shut the lid). I am not even kidding! Pharaoh is a tiny cat and is also a freeze baby, so I guess he figured the laptop was a nice warm place to sleep. I was wondering what the heck happened to my "s" key….it has been acting funny for the past week or so…now I know!
My shoulder has been hurting something awful. Its the muscle between my neck and my shoulder that is really painful. Probably from carrying too many things back and forth between my schools. I was so miserable that I took Friday off of work so that I could rest, put heat on it and take some medication. I spent the entire day and night laying on the sofa, reading Ethan Frome and typing an essay for my literature class.
The rest helped quite a bit and my shoulder didn’t really hurt as much today. I spent most of today scrapping……its great to see my stack of layouts-to-create get smaller 🙂 These scans just don’t do these layouts justice…..
My favorite thing to do while scrapping is watch TV episodes online at www.abc.com. Its funny because I am not a Tv person usually, but its nice to have something to do while I scrap. My new favorite shows are Eli Stone and Samantha Who?
Today was a really beautiful day so we took a drive through the country and grilled steaks for dinner. I can feel spring coming and I love it!
I finally finished my essay for Huck Finn. Just how exciting do you think it is to analyze Twain’s criticisms of society and document evidence through out the book? My Lit class is wayyyyyy too much work for a 3 credit undergrad class!!! I only have 3 lessons done out of 15 (plus a midterm and final). I hate this and cannot wait to be finished!!!
To congratulate myself on getting it finished, I scrapped for a couple of hours. I am officially done with 2007 pics!
I had planned on doing nothing today but relax….of course that didn’t happen!
I scrapped for about four hours this morning/afternoon and then spent the evening cleaning the house from top to bottom and several loads of laundry.
Now I can relax!
I am making good progress on my stack of layouts-to-create. Next will be Christmas!
Now if only I could finish my $^%$^^ essay on Huckleberry Finn. I’ve been reading the dang book for like 5 weeks now!
Its an absolute miracle, my friends.
I completed and submitted Lesson #1 for my LSU literature course. It is absolutely ridiculous how long it took me to answer 4 stupid questions. I sit here and stared and cursed at my computer so many times as I tried to "analyze" the stories. I hate it, I hate it I hate it.
When I finally finished I treated myself to some scrappy time 🙂
This first one is for a challenge at Greta, Simone and Elizabeth’s challenge blog : Scrap your crap. The challenege was to use a holiday paper on a non-holiday layout. Used up my pretty new Valentine paper for this birthday back in November!
Oops, just realized I switched the pages on the last layout when putting the photos together, the title should be on the first page.
I have a least a million more pages to do, but hopefully Michelle and I will be able to scrap together some time this month. We both got new Cricut fonts for Christmas!
