miscellany monday!

  • Why haven't I set up the Wii yet? I couldn't wait to get it and now that I have it....its sitting in the closet!
  • With all the snow coming our way...I need to get my nephews out and take some SNOW pics...I love snow layouts; I have none.!! Auni @ LoveLeighScraps does lots of these. 
  • I'm wondering right now if American Pickers is on tonight..REALLY? I can't believe I told that. I love that show but its our secret..I would never tell my husband!

  • I am excited to be blogging. I seriously couldn't wait to get home and see who stopped by.  
  • I just painted my nails and I hope the polish isn't getting ruined from doing this post.

Up early.....

So I've been up since about 4:30 this morning thinking about my new scrap space I am going to create. I've been checking outs lots of blogs and ideas. It's so fun & inspiring reading & seeing other crafter creations. I want my own room (little or big) to get away to. There are so many good ideas out there. I may even document my progress.

What do you like best about your space?

Flashback Friday

So this is my first Flashback Friday! My sister at Loveleigh Scraps called me last night to make sure I was on track to do this.

I'm still trying to figure out how to show my layouts online. I did these pages a few years ago of my mom and aunt in Key West. I love the color scheme and love love the flowers! Flowers and ribbon are my favorite embellies. I use them whenever I possibly can.

Tigerfest in the D

So I still haven't posted any of my layouts! I even committed to Flashback Friday with my sister and failed..UGH! I will get the hang of this. I just ordered a book she suggested on blogging by Tara Frey-Blogging Bliss for Crafters..Thats what got her started.

I will have some great pics/layouts to post of Tigerfest. What is that you ask?? Its the beginning of the Detroit Tiger baseball season when players and fans meet. There are autograph signings, free givaways, tours of Comerica Park lots of meets and greets. I went with my family: husband-Ed, and stepkids-Rachel and Brad. It was a good time. VERY VERY cold but fun.
My husband loves his Tigers! We finally finished off the day at Fishbones in Greektown, then headed home where I changed quickly in to pjs and took a nap.

Scrapbook Saturday - need some speed!

So going with my sister and the bestie to an all day scrapbook event..should be tons of fun and hopefully I'll be productive. I have this ridiculous habit of getting there, feeling overwhelmed and not knowing where to start. It usually ends up that everyone has completed pages and pages while I've only done 2 or 3..I think too much..Each trip I vow it will not be that way! Time will tell....
The plan is to finish my Rick Springfield (remember Jessie's Girl or Dr. Noah Drake from General Hospital) cruise it but sick of it. Need to move on to other special moments, trips and happenings....from like 2009 & 2010. Yeah I'm a little slow at this....I better start printing the pictures..... night!

P.S....I'd love some scrapbook tips.

What's your favorite glass of wine???

Wine has become a new passion for me and I'm thinking about how to scrapbook it...

I always thought I was a beer drinker...don't get me wrong..I still like them on a hot summer day but I've found I really like a good glass of wine! I thought I preferred white wine..Barefoot White Zin or Santa Marguerita Pinot Grigio but I'm leaning lately towards the reds..I absolutely love Madria Sangria! Lightly sweet but not dry...and believe it not.....el cheapo Arbor Mist Blackberry Merlot was my vino of choice during the holidays. Again...not too sweet just right. Most of my friends seem to prefer a moscato preferably Barefoot but I find it way too sweet...too much like drinking Koolaid. LOL. What do you like? Nothing like a good glass of wine to chill you after a long day at work or with dinner or just hanging w/friends. Love to try something new.........

Its a New Year!

So of course, I read my sisters blog...and it inspired me to write. She's much more creative and insightful than I am but I think blogging is therapeutic. Just reading her post this morning made me smile.

In September, Croppin' Chicks hosted a Scrapbook Getaway weekend in upper Michigan. My sister and I got in plenty of scrapping as well ...
