Is that a Christmas page I see?

I have never really purchased Christmas themed paper before. I always told myself that when I was ready to scrap Christmas pictures, I would take them to the store with me to pick out what I wanted to use. I think this is one reason I never seem to scrap my Christmas pictures. That and the fact that I have tons of photos and I just want the pages to look perfect. I think I am overwhelmed.

Well that is all about to change.

Over at Scrappay Divas it is Christmas every day ~ all month long!!!! (Well until the 25th or until we run out of Christmas photos ~ which I doubt will happen).

This is a layout that I started back in 2003 (using pictures from 2002). I had a different plan for the page and in fact already had the pictures matted. Well….I kept the original dark green color scheme but that is all. I am so happy to have this page done. Three years is a long time to have a page just lying around in pieces. Sadly, though….I have many more just like it waiting to be completed.

Argh! Why can't I scrap???

So...since, I could not work on the Christmas layout that I think is from 2002. I decided to work on another 2002 Christmas layout that I had started at the same time. The pictures I am scrapping are from a holiday tea and I had already matted a few pictures and had an embellishment I wanted to use. I am rethinking how I wanted to scrap this page. Well actually, I cannot remember how I wanted to originally scrap it. LOL!

I do know that I will be using same color background paper and I will no longer be using the embellishments I had planned to use. I also want to use some of the new paper I bought.

The paper the pictures are matted on will work great with this Basic Grey paper I bought the other day. Isn't it pretty? I almost did not buy it because it is just not my 'thing,' but I really think it will go well with the photos and the dark green paper I want to use.

Here is my problem. I want to use this paper in part of the title (since I cannot figure out how else to use it - I am patterned paper challenged). I have tons of BG monograms but have never used them so I thought I could just trace them and use the paper I want to.

I think the regular BG monograms will be WAY too big. Especially on a 8.5 x 11 page. I wonder if I should go ahead and buy these new Basic Grey mini- monograms. I have looked thru my fonts and even my lettering templates and I cannot find any style that I like.

Why can't I just use the stuff I already have?

Why does it take me hours to scrap a page?

It is 1am! I need to get to bed!

Here’s the problem

After looking at Happay’s Christmas layouts today, I am in the mood to catch up and scrap all of my Christmas photos I have put off scrapping. Yep! That’s right. Put off. I realize that I don’t scrap them because there are so many and I feel I cannot do them justice.

I never even buy Christmas themed paper because I don’t want it to just sit there. However, recently I did break down and buy some Basic Grey Fruitcake. Yummy! (the paper – not the cake). I want to use it for a different layout though…but still…..I have purchased some winter/Christmassy paper recently and I want to use it.

See this?

This is a problem.

This is a 3 page (8.5x11) layout that I started years ago. Everything is stuck down. All it needs is journaling and I want to put down everyone’s name that are on the pages. I remember not being able to finish this layout when I first started it because I had purchased some holiday rub-ons to use and promptly lost them. I recently found them when I was cleaning up my stuff but I put them in such a great spot, I cannot find them!!! So I guess I cannot work on this layout at this time. I also don’t remember where I was going with this layout, so my style has changed.

Do you want to know the saddest thing? I do not even know what year these photos are from!!!!! I think it may be 2002 but I will need to check. The pictures are not digital so I have to look at negatives to find out. Wish me luck!!


Do you wear it?

Liquid or Pencil?

Do you wear it by itself or along with eye shadow?

If so, do you put it on before or after your eye shadow?

What is your favorite color? Favorite brand?

Happy Turkey Day!!!

I hope all of you have a great Thanksgiving because I plan to.

In just a couple of hours B and I will be heading over to my parents' house. Not that many people will be there this year. My mom says only 20 {not including the kids}. I remember when the place used to be PACKED! I think I need to look for an old photo when I go over there today so I can share. Even just 2 years ago we had 31 people and that is still considered small.

I am excited to see everyone that will be there and will be missing those that are not. I am very thankful that I have the family that I do. I really missed them last year

Well I better go get myself ready, before B takes over the bathroom!

Do you ever feel anxious and not know the reason why?

For some reason I am feeling that way. Maybe it is because I just got an email from my in-laws asking about Thanksgiving. We spent last Thanksgiving with them and this year it is my family’s turn. Maybe I am anxious because I have to tell them No? Maybe I am anxious because I think that B is going to spend Thanksgiving with his parents this year instead of with mine?

I just feel like I am running out of time and I don’t know why.

I don’t like feeling this way.

Mama needs some new sparkly things

Anyone want to buy some shiny things?

I love the new banners as they show one of the items currently available.

I have been very happy with my shiny purchases.

Flu shots?

So what do you think of them?

Do you get them?

Have you gotten one and then gotten sick?

Have you ever gotten sick from the actual flu shot?

They are giving out flu shots today at work. I have NEVER had one. I don’t know if I agree with them actually. I mean no one really knows if the flu shot you get today will protect you from this year’s flu strain. It appears that everyone at work is getting one except me. What a rebel I am.

We will not discuss my dislike for needles.

A not so graceful loser

There really is something to be said for being a graceful loser.

As those of you that read my blog know (that would be all 2 of you), I am not a country music fan. However that being said, I was very interested in seeing all the newscasters talk about Faith Hill’s not so gracious loss at the CMA’s last night. According to this article, the entire thing was a joke. I personally don’t feel that it was. But what else could she say? She has to save face somehow. She was on the air and was caught showing emotions that are normally saved until the losing star gets home (or at least inside their limo). But hey, that is my take on it…..check out the video footage for yourself and let me know what you think.

I guess I was more obsessed then I thought last week

104 songs played! That is a lot of songs. More songs than I think I have listened to in an entire week sometimes (well on my computer anyway).

When you buy a new album you are supposed to listen to it a lot right? I mean there are 14 songs on the CD so even if I listen to it twice it would rack up a high number. I thought I was doing okay at 104 songs played. Then I checked my profile a few days later and the numbers had changed. I guess some plays had not been counted. I guess I listened more than I thought. 119 songs! Wow!
