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!
