Autumn Splendour

Well the fall season is upon us here in Ontario, and although it rains quite often during this season, I still love it. There is nothing more beautiful than the changing colour on the trees, the simple glory in the fall flowers in the garden, and the excitement of the Fall Fair's in the area.
This year I have yet to get out to enjoy these festivities, but I am hopeful that I will get there before they are all finished with. The chance to get out in the fresh air and see the animals, to smell the wonderful smells of apples, and to just enjoy some quality time with DH, gets my heart a flutter!
This weekend I am hoping to get out and pick some apples at a local apple orchard. I love the smell of apples, and the many things that one can do with them. Applesauce is a sure fire favourite here in the Haas household, but we love the smell and taste of the homemade apple pie too! Brings me back to the good ole days:)
Today I should be working on a class layout for Apple Orchards, but just don't seem to be motivated! Hopefully getting out to the orchard over the weekend, will spark some inspiration with me and help me to get this done. I will have to share with you once I get it done, but for now.....enjoy your day!

I have been tagged!!

I have been tagged!

So if I tagged you here is what you do

"List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether or not they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your LiveJournal/blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to.

So this is my 7 songs:

1. Have a nice day--Bon Jovi
2. Room Service--Bryan Adams
3. Up on the roof--The Nylons
4. Just Between you and me--April Wine
5. Acknowledge me--Prince
6. You'll be in my heart--Phil Collins
7. Truly Madly Deeply--Savage Garden

**I know.....mostly older songs....but I still love them all!

I haven't tagged anyone yet, because I am still trying to figure all of this out:)

My Scrap Space/ promised

Well as you can tell, I have been having some problems with adding things to my blog and getting everything all sorted out, but please bare with me while I move onto this new adventure.
I recently changed my oldest son's room into my very own Scrapping Haven, and I would like to share this space with all of you here. It is a great, comforting place for me to go and get creative, and I certainly have gotten busy since the room was completed.
Here are a few photos....enjoy!

Not as DUMB as I LOOK

Well ok, I don't know why I was having such issues with adding my photos before, but I was able to manage it tonight!

Now I think I am going to try and get better at adding to this on a regular basis, and keeping you all posted to how things are going with me!
I hope that you will find some things here to inspire you and keep you interested enough to keep coming back!!!

Autumn is upon us here in Ontario, and I just love this time of year. I love being able to get out for walks in the cool, crisp air, and I love to decorate for the season. Here is a little bit of what my home looks like during this season.

Hoping this works this time

Well here I go again with trying to add photos to my blog. Let's hope that this will work this time. I feel so dumb about these here goes nothing!

Where have I been and what have I been up to?

Well so much time has flown by, and so much has been keeping me busy, that I have not really found the proper time to sit and post in my blog since I started it.
I am going to try and change this and keep things updated here more often. So please bare with me.

This summer has been crazy around my house. DH was off of work for the full month of July, and we spent a lot of time together, going places and doing things around the house. Scrapping more or less took a back seat for me, except for when I had to design my classes for the LSS.

My oldest son moved out in mid July, and this, although was something we had been expecting, was still a shock to us. He had talked about it getting closer to the time he thought it was time to move out on his own and that he was going to start looking for a place. Well this all came quicker that any of us had thought. He called me on a Wednesday, from work, to tell me that he would be moving out in the morning. WOW.........imagine the shock on my face!

He moved out on good terms, but I was so not ready to have him go, especially like that. There was no time to get used to the idea of him not living here anymore, no time to prepare and have things all packed up properly. No planning what so ever.
The same day that he called to tell me he was moving out, he quit his job with Sunrise Records (which is a music store in the mall). I know, you are probably sitting there thinking to yourself that that wasn't the smartest move he could have made. :)

The reason he quit, was because that same evening, he had been given the opportunity to do Graphic Design for a company. The pay is better, the job, he loves, and he is much happier in his new position.
Things really started to fall into place and the timing was all so perfect for him. I am so very proud of him for staying focused and following his heart to do what he loves to do. WTG Baby!

So, now that he has moved out, I have taken over his room. I am now the proud owner of my very own SCRAPBOOK ROOM!!! Wooo Hoooooooo for me! It was a lot of work preparing the walls for painting, getting the painting done, moving all my stuff from the diningroom and setting it up in the room, but it was well worth the efforts and time that it took.

This new project with my room was lengthy, and it kept me from actually sitting down to scrapbook, but as you will be able to see, creating in this new atmosphere is going to be simply wonderful.

Take a peek and see my new space!
