Okay - Glimmer Mist isn't that scary....

I finally used my Glimmer mist!! And it wasn't as horrible as I thought it would be - nor was it very messy. And I actually liked the way it turned out!! I had a great time on Saturday with Aimee and am looking forward to the next time we go scrapbooking. The Layout I did is of Leslie sitting in front of a bed of tulips in Chicago. I used the butterfly screen and Tattered Leather Glimmer Mist. And I'm loving the flowers from Prima!!

It was back to work today. After work, I wasn't very motivated so I didn't accomplish much on my ever-growing "to do" list. There's always tomorrow night though...right??

Happy Friday? I'm starting to get a head cold so I don't think I'll be doing too much this weekend. Except cropping for 12 hours tomorrow!! It should be a good time...I will definately have a few layouts to show. I'm hoping to try out my new Glimmer Mist - I've been a bit intimidated by this product, but I think the best thing to do is just jump into it and give it a go. We'll see how well it goes.

Aside from that, I finished my sewing lessons and now am going to start on a project - not sure what I'm going to work on, but I'll be sure to keep you updated.

I'll leave you with some cute pics of my "boys" - I snapped a few pics of them doing what they do best, being lazy!!

End of a Busy Week

Time sure does fly!! It's been a busy week - and I've realized that I am quite domestic...and loving it!! The week involved work, scrapbooking, sewing, sewing lessons, baking and enjoying some of my favorite shows. Last weekend I managed to finish the mini album I was making for my friend, Helen. I used Basic Grey 'Origins' line....and I LOVE the way it turned out. The colors are so bright and it's just a fine line to work with.

This week, like I mentioned, I also took my first sewing class!! I am a newbie at a sewing machine. but I am proud to say that I made my first bag!! It's nothing too exciting. I used a plastic shopping bag as a template. But it was a little project that got me used to sewing. I still have a ways to go, but as I get more comfortable, I am sure it will slowly come together and the projects will get more elaborate!

This evening, I didn`t do anything too exciting...I spent the evening cleaning and baking Peanut Butter - Oatmeal - Chocolate chip cookies. But I am looking forward to the weekend and some shopping. I am planning on going to the Restore to see what kind of materials I can find for a little project I am planning...and maybe to a local greenhouse to check out the plants for the garden!! I am REALLY looking forward to summer and working on our backyard!!

New Year...New beginnings...(a little late).

It's been a little while since I posted anything. There's no real reason why, other than things come up, I put things off and lose track of time. I moved into a new home, which took up alot of my time and energy getting things straightened out...and making the space 'ours'. Then Christmas - we all know what that time of year is like. Next thing I know it's January, February and now March! I keep vowing to myself that I will make more time for me, and make more time to do the things I love. I have been getting more inspired lately with sewing (thanks to Leslie and my new Janome!), and making over old furniture, and, of course, scrapbooking. But also, now that spring is coming, I'm excited about our backyard and planting a garden. Yup! I feel like I have lots of things on my plate and I'm trying to organize things so that I can get to work on all my wonderful, inspired projects! I am planning to start 'blogging' again - because I know a lot of people who keep asking 'what are you up to?' and I am excited to show people some of my projects!! So, you can (hopefully) start to expect more frequent posts...
