I remembered:)

Well as many of you already know, I haven't scrapped any layouts for myself since the end of October. I know, bad huh? Well, I finally got some time today to get right to work in my scraproom, and let me tell you, it sure did feel GREAT!
I really remembered how much fun it can be to work on something for yourself and to make a mess.
Oh MY poor scraproom......what a MESS! But you know, it is all worth it knowing that I managed to get 4 layouts...that's right, count them......1-2-3-4. DONE!!!! WOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Now that I got a little taste of what it is like to just be as creative as you can in the moment, you can bank on the fact that I will be working on something again tomorrow!
Until then....happy looking!

Well as CHA vastly approaches, I must tell you all that I, for one, can't wait to see all of the new products in person. Amongst some of these marvelous NEW products is a new line by Scrappy Chick that I think everyone needs to be keeping their eyes open for.

This new line comes to us all from the wonderful gals at Scrapthatmoment, which is my new found home, since the Scrapbook Jungle closed it's doors on us.
This site is simply a great place to hang out and I tell you all, the inspiration is out of this world. Not one day goes by that you will not find the most wonderful pieces of art in the gallery, and although I haven't scrapped much for myself in the past couple of months, I feel inspired!!!

You all have to take a look at these new papers and the wonderful SNEAK PEEKS that we have been given. Go to and check out the newest products...never to be seen before! You won't be sorry you stopped by!

Yes, I am ALIVE!!

Well, I guess some of you might be wondering what the heck happened to me for so long, so here I am!

I must say that keeping up with this thing, isn't as easy as I thought it might be. It seems that life has gotten away from me lately (ok, since mid November, but who's counting) :) It just seems that so much has been going on in our lives and in the house, that I just haven't had as much time as I would have liked to sit and post here so you all had something to read;)

Since I last posted we have been quite busy.

Here's the list:

Renovated the bathroom
Prepared for Christmas
Made all my Christmas presents
slowly tried to recover from the holidays
taught classes at the LSS
Got James moved to Mississauga:(
Started to prepare for February classes (ok.....just came up with the list of the classes, no real prep done, YET)
Purged the house (lots of stuff not in use and therefore were donated)
Lost my JUNGLE home, but found a new one at
Now we are talking about redecorating the this will be something else keeping me busy in the weeks to come

So now that you know what I have been up to as of late, I hope that I didn't bore you all too much.

Now I am in dire need of getting my scrapping groove back, or at least started. I more or less got into creative burn out after creating all of my Christmas gift items, but I am thinking that enough time has been let to slip by and I need to get back into the groove.

Shirley tried to motivate me by challenging me to do a 2 page spread last week, and I failed this challenge. I am still trying to get used to the idea that James has moved to Mississauga and that Tom isn't home most of the time. The empty nest syndrome is worse than I thought it ever could be........gotta get me out of this slump for sure.

Now Peggy has challenged me to get a layout done by Thursday, with the promise that, she, too, will get one done. Let's hope that I will NOT fail this challenge too!

Let's see what I can come up with:)
