Well the weekend is over....

Well here we are, Sunday evening and the weekend is just about over. It has been quite busy around here, but then again, that really isn't anything new. I had a great visit with a friend on Friday, and we spent the afternoon in my scrap room, which was a lot of fun. I worked on my March classes and because I was motivated and inspired, I continued with that over the rest of the weekend. In all, I have 3 ready to go and am planning out a couple of more.

Saturday was the usual, with running of errands and house cleaning. Once that was done, it was back to the scrap room to more creating. I managed to get a few cards made using up more of my scraps, worked on another class layout for March and worked on a couple of layouts for a friend.
I will have to get the cards scanned or photographed, and I will share those some time this week.

My scraps have gotten out of control, and I have decided that I needed to use them up before I was going to start creating anymore layouts for my albums. (where we all know would just create even more scraps) My goal is to have used enough scraps by the end of February that I can actually then think about working with my photos and creating pages for my own albums again. (this will be nice, as it has been way too long) Of course, once I have created anything new, I will be sharing it here with all of you.

I do hope that you all have had a great weekend, and were able to find some time to create!

Be watching and I will share my cards with you this upcoming week.

So much time has passed.....

Well, it certainly has been a long time since I have posted on my blog, and for that, I do apologize to everyone. This past year has been extremely busy and life just seemed to get in the way of all my computer time and keeping everyone up to date with what I have been up to. Life has changed in many different ways in the past year here for us. Thomas, my youngest has moved out into his own apartment and his older brother has moved back in for a while. After James finished attending Toronto Film School, he felt the need to come home in order to save more money, pay off his student loan and save towards the next step in his future. He has now applied to AFI (American Film Institute) and is awaiting to hear whether or not he has been accepted. He hopes to hear something by mid-April. If he is accepted, he will be leaving to live in Los Angeles, California by summer's end. In the meantime, he is working full time and still pursuing his short films. He is also now the Development Manager for Raindance Canada. In the past year, he has had 2 short films screened at the Cannes Film Festival in Nice, France, Big Bear Film Festival in Big Bear, California, has made 4 trips to L.A. for various reasons and meetings, and just most recently attended the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. He had a volunteer position there and made some contacts that seem hopeful to his future.

I have not been finding much time to get on the computer like I once did, and I certainly do hope to see some changes in this area now that a new year has started. It is my intentions to get back to "basics" and set some time aside for the computer, scrapping for my own albums, and for keeping in touch with all of my friends. I do hope to also share with you my newest creations here as I get them done. I have had enough down time with scrapping, that it is definitely time to get back in the creative mode. I have still been doing my classes, but for the most part, just wasn't too inspired to work on anything for my own albums. This is about to change!
