Exciting new developments

Yeah, exciting indeed.
See I'm gonna be teaming up with this fabulous lady to add a little spice to the world of kits!
She has come up with this fabulous concept of making a challange/kit blog centered around mini books and she has asked me to parter up with her! I'm so stoked I can't even tell you!

Here is a little peek at what the site will look like. Just a peek.
Just as the logo says, it is all about digging deeper and telling your story. This new venture will help me to grow in my journey as we inspire countless others to do the same. So, so flippin' exciting. I can't wait to share more!

Till then, you will just have to be held over by my other scrappies...I leave you with this page I did on the sweet Amber Ulmer.

Well that's all for now. Time to get some shut eye...if I can manage to get these scrappy thoughts out of my head long enough to fall asleep!

I know not of this 365 you speak of....




Sorry for my lack of bloggage but this week has sucked. Stress at work, fussy baby with monster diaper rash, I still feel crappy and hubs had kidney stones. YES, kidney stones. Nice. But things are getting much better as the week winds down.

Ok, so I've gotten a number of emails about what's this 365 photo project I keep talking about. What are the rules? Can any one play? Well yes, anyone can play. As for rules, it's has to be a self portrait and you take one every day. That's it. You can set a timer, use a tripod, hold the camera out and snap it, long as you take the picture yourself. I've seen a number of very inspirational folks that I admire doing this project but I got my real inspiration from Kate. Her beautiful pictures pushed me to do it myself. See Kate, I told you you were a total inspiration! This little project is making want a better camera but the funny thing is most of mine are taken with my camera on my iphone. The ones I use the timer for are with my point and shoot Kodak. There are quite a few flickr groups you can join and upload your pics and get feedback from other 365ers but I just like taking them for me and blogging them. It just makes me happy. I spend so much time shopping and putting together outfits and such that it is sort of gratifing to see it in pictures everyday. Vain. I know. But whatevs! LOL! So that's it. Go. Shoot. Document your daily self in pics. If you want to join a flickr group just go to flickr and search 365 and see all the groups pop up. They all have simular rules...just find the little nook you like and go with it. Oh and LINK ME UP too! I wanna see what you come up with so i can follow your 365 journey!

Got Crabs?

Ok so that was a cheesy title but I couldn't resist. This is my pic of the day. Not much else to share. Today was good. Boiled crawfish. Boiled crabs. Ice cole Coke. Icecream Snickers. A day at the river. A dip in the baby pool for Zane. Just a good day all around. Well until we got home and my son nearly choked to death on apple sauce that he insisted on feeding himself. *hmmph*

Well gots to go get mom is coming to get her scrap on tonight. Laters!

Yeah. Blah. Not many happies in my day. But these did bring a smile to my face.
As you know we were supposed to be at the beach this weekend. That didn't happen. Then we were supposed to go out for drinks last night (badly needed drinks). And that didn't happen. Then we were supposed to go tonight to make up for the missed drinks and I am. Laid out on my sofa...typing instead of sippin' on my lemon drop martini. Damit.

So I leave you with my 365. At least I felt cute today.
See, that is why it is so important to look stylish. Somedays you don't have much else! LOL!

Working through the weekend...

Still feel like shit. But I'm managing.
You can totally tell I'm tired...see my lazy eye in my 365 pic? My left eye gets droopy when I'm tired. Random fact. Sorry. Oh and while the weather was pounding us with wind and hail last night, I couldn't sleep. So I made these pages...

All for now. Here's hoping that I snap out of this funk. At least I still have my creativity! LOL!

...shake my little tush on the catwalk

First, above is my 365 for today...

Ok, now onto scrap happenings...I'm so excited! For the second week in a row, I made the catwalk over at Scrap In Style! See that bottom picture on the left...that's my layout! You can check it out here (until next week's is posted).

Gretchen picked my "If I lay here" layout. She said she loved the black and aqua on the kraft paper, she loves the song and loved the sweet pic. *blush* Thanks Gretchen!

Ok, now I have to go cook me some grub. I'm thinking spinach and artichoke pasta.

My Heart is Happy

My baby has been so sweet this weekend. That makes me happy.

I got my rainbow swap package sent off to my SIS partner (and mine is in route to me too). That makes me happy.
I took some cute 365 pictures. That makes me happy.

Friday 365:
Saturday 365:

Sunday 365 soon to come.

And I scraped. A lot. That makes me super dupper happy.

All this and an Old Navy/Anthorpologie/Fresh Market shopping trip. That made me really, really happy.

AND we are going to the beach next weekend. Whhheeeeee! See...Happy.

Did I mention I was inspired?

After doing the Kate jack I was so inspired that I just scrapped my little heart out. This is the result...

Below is a card I made for the family of a neighbor that passed away. The were so appreciative that someone MADE them a card. That made all those unappreciated handmade gifts I've ever made all worth while.
And this little piece of elegance is a graduation gift I made for my cousin who is graduating tonight. (Aunt Charlotte, if you are looking at this before Friday night...STOP!) he he!

As for the pending weekend, well a graduation tonight and that's about all. I'm hoping on doing a little shopping binge and perhaps a trip to my long lost scrapbook store. I would also like to take some pictures if the weather cooperates. We'll see.

Well that's all for now. Laters!

Thursday Already?

Where HAS the week gone? I've been feeling a bit drained but I was super excited to do this week's jack. This time we jacked Kate O'Brien! As you recall, I recently met Kate so it was a treat to have an excuse to jack one of her pages. Problem is, now I want to jack more of them! They are just so clean and raw and personal. I mean look at the page I did (above)...I journaled. ME...JOURNALED! I know. Crazy. I think I wanna do some more things based on her pages. She is truly an inspiration.

Ok, so here are my latest self portraits from yesterday and today.

See that green's my fav. It was an Anthropologie splurge. I think I'm due for another trip there. he he!
