Just ten or so days later,

and finally, I'm coughing less, sleeping less, blowing my nose less and no more body aches - that flu really kicked me in the behind.  Its been slow getting up off the sofa........

But I'm up.  I started my new job on Thursday last week (totally love it) and am able to stay awake long enough for some creating and other life things.

I had been itching to get into that Jenni Bowlin kit and finally got to it.  I loved the red, black and cream papers, the lace, the felt, the black vintage buttons, just all of it.  I may need to get that yummy box every month as a happy 2011 present to myself!

I've also started to do a little holiday decorating around the house.  Still a ways to go, but I'll get there...

Got these cool berries on the mantel.

And hung a pretty wreath on the door.  The big guy picked up the plain wreath for me last Sunday at Loews and I simply added a flower cut from a Christmas stem and hung it from the top of the door with gold sparkly ribbon.

I've got a table centerpiece project in the works.  As soon as I get more cardstock (tomorrow  on my lunch hour)  I'm hoping to finish this up.  Here's a peek,

So much bling!!!  Gotta love Martha  - this project is in this month's Living with several other festive ones.   Martha's  website is full of ideas as well. 

And oh!  Don't forget, its Sunday.  And Sunday means............

And now I'm off to watch yet another sappy Hallmark movie!!

Have a great day!!

Just Happy Thanksgiving

Oh, I had such high hopes the other day.........sadly, this flu kicked in and I've done little else than sleep, cough and blow my nose.  I am feeling better this morning, so am hoping.......  In any event, I wish a blessed Thanksgiving to everyone.

Just a little sick..

Last week was going along so well and then BAM, Friday night I suddenly had a runny nose and started coughing.  I could feel my chest filling up and by last night, the fever set in.  I slept most of the day away today, but managed to stay awake for the second half of the game which thankfully, had a happy ending!

Yeah.....the Pats beat the Colts 31-27!!!

Anyway, I feel a little better right now, so tomorrow, I'm looking forward to spending the day in my jammies and maybe doing a little creating.  I'm fixin' to do a little something with this.

I'll be back...........

Just Congratulations

to my brother, Chris.  I'm thrilled for him.    Check it out  


And actually, I'm thrilled for myself, too.   I got official word last night that I landed the new paralegal job I was after.  Finally, I'll have my own office again and I can't wait to surround myself with my photos at work. Well, I should add, I love the work too!

In scrappy thrilled, I got this little package of goodies in the mail the other day

and am planning to tear it open and create this afternoon.  

When it first arrived, I was completely and immediately inspired by the thin corregated cardboard that it was wrapped in.  I immediately tore off a piece and took a punch to it.

And here's the end result.

For the "09", I used Studio Calico's new Jett Numbers.  They rock.  Also loved the sparkly MM brads in the kit this month.

And now, I'm off to Bed, Bath & Beyond, on the hunt for a Thanksgiving outfit for my table - we're hosting dinner here next week!

Have a wonderful day!

Just Shopping

My cousin is up from Florida this week, so we've been doing the shopping and out to lunch thing for the past two days (hey, there she is!! In the photo in my previous post!!).  Between the two of us, we've done same damage, especially given that our day doesn't start until I get out of work at 1:00.  I ended up landing a couple of sweaters (well, three), a really cool suit (I love those long, long jackets) and a fun black, purple and ivory scarf.

These Franco Sarto's,

a  fun new handbag with vintage mickey and minne on it

and in my never-ending quest to find the best volumizing mascara in the universe (what girl doesn't have her own, private mascara wars, right?), I picked up one of these


and one of these

Not sure that I'll love either as much as I do Prescriptives Lash Envy or Arbonne Triple Action, but we'll see..........

I did start playing with a layout on Monday, but haven't quite finished it up yet.  Hoping to get to that tomorrow!

All in all,  these shopping trips have proven to  be a great practice run for Christmas!!! 

Enjoy the night!

Just Six Months Later

hmm........six months, 180 days and about 24 Sundays...its been a long time since I've last blogged. Lots and lots of goings on in that time, but now that the dust has settled, I'm back, and finally, feeling inspired again!

So anyway, hello, just six months later, with some snapshots, that capture  some of it.......

And yes, I've got my scrap back on!

Enjoy your Monday!

Just Inspiration

Isn't it fun that inspiration is everywhere?

The other day I went out to lunch with a friend and then we were off to do a little furniture shopping - she's looking for a new living room set.  When we walked into the store, I was amazed by all of the colors and the inspo started striking like major bolts of lightening.

Love, love this combo.

There's just something about tulips.

Striking, yet so calming........

Red rocks.

And this?  Well, this just speaks for itself.


By the way, she bought the blue one.

And no, I haven't taken the time to scan those other layouts yet, but here's a peek of a little somethin' somethin' I did with the Flower Child stuff........... 

Have a wonderful mother's day tomorrow!!

Just Cinco De Mayo

Ok, so yesterday, cinco de mayo, I decided I  not only wanted to eat mexican food, but also wanted to do something with the cinco part.   I went with five things I've been wanting to do, but didn't take the time to.  And here they are:  

1.  Man, the car looks nice when its washed..........

2.  Get to another baseball game......

3.  Switch over to the summer bedding.....

4.  Call my favorite "auntie" in Flordia, who celebrated her 86th birthday recently.  Ends up, I'll be visiting her in person in a few weeks.

5.  Get to back to the gym.  Its been tough with this knee brace, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel - this thing is hopefully, off of my leg on the 18th.  I couldn't do any leg weights and am limited to the eliptical bike, but just doing something felt great.

Hope you enjoyed your cinco!!

Just the Weekend

So I hope everyone enjoyed their National Scrapbook Day!  Although we enjoyed the day, none of it, not one smidgen, included any scrap time. Bummer for me, but, the little guy enjoyed his first communion day so it was all good.

There was playoff hockey Saturday afternoon, too.  Go Bruins (they won last night, too)!
Sunday, we did a little house shopping - still nothing there -and  then spent some time with my parents at a great local restaurant.  I way, way overindulged - the lobster bisque was awesome, the baked stuffed shrimp amazing. 

The place is really cool - an 1850's home converted into an inn and a restaurant.  If you're local, check out Colonel Blackinton Inn.  You'll love it.

I had my nose in this here and there over the weekend, too.

Who isn't curious about Carrie as a teenager, right?

And there went the weekend!

I did find a little time to get to creating yesterday.  Time for new RAH DT projects!  I'm having a blast with this and so LOVING the yellow in this collection. 

Peeks of that coming soon!

I've yet to scan those other layouts I mentioned in my last post.  I'm hoping to get to that  over the next couple of days

And now, I'm off to catch Mr. DeWyze on American Idol!
