When am I not busy?

I seem to be doing something all the time, yesterday morning I scrapped with my best friends that live in town and went to lunch with yet another friend, then today we are going to one of my friends church to scrapbook all day, tomorrow I'm meeting my Nashville best friends and we are going shopping out to lunch and then to the weekend crop we are going to. I've been spending time cutting out overlays and titles, to try to sell, I'm also going to donate some for the door prize. I expecting to make some money, my New Years Resolution is to pay off my Master card, I'll probably have it paid in 3 months, but we are going on a cruise first of March, so it may take a little longer than 3, anyway, it was a long time coming, but that's my resolution.
Have a great weekend,

Valentines Card

Here is a copy of what my Valentines cards are going to look like, so if you know me personally "don't look". I always make extra's so I can swap them with my Red Hat Ladies. I'm going to be slowly posting this week and next, I'm getting ready for a weekend crop this weekend and a day crop the next weekend, the second one is in KY and is a good place to sell stuff, so I've been busy cutting out overlays and titles to take and sell there.

I wish everyone had enough money to be able to keep their cars up and running right, I take in my car and change the oil every 3 months, they let me know if something is wrong, leaking,low on air, ect..My kids on the other hand, don't do anything til the car is on it's last leg, then they call Momma, well the money train is closed, I can't afford my kids anymore. Son's car is in the shop and now father in law is paying for it, he's going to try to get his other car working this weekend. I am always the taxi driver. Have to pick him up from work, Zach from babysitter, and take him home which is a 45 minute trip from the babysitters, so I'll be gone 2 hours round trip. Wheww, hope the car gets fixed soon.

Yesterday I got to watch my grandson, the babysitters were full for morning hours, and my son and my dil worked 1st shift instead of 2nd. He was full of smiles and coo's, he was so cute. We did a small photo shoot, he didn't want to get posed too many ways though and he really hates being on his stomach. Then I realized it was his 2 month birthday, I'm taking my friends advise and taking a picture of him in his carseat each month to see how much he grows.
Have a great day!!

Well I had a lazy day here today, I watched TV most of the day with my puppy in my lap sleeping, well he's not a puppy anymore, but he still looks like he is, he's a long hair Chihuahua and he has a very baby face. I think he likes to get away from the other dogs, we have 2 more and my daughter has her's here to. I watched the Hallmark channel most of the day, it had some pretty good movies I haven't seen before. Tonight we ordered Chinese food and my daughters boyfriend and my son's girlfriend came over and are visiting with us, I may not post tomorrow, I took this weekend off from my files.
Have a great weekend,
p.s. Thanks to all who e-mailed me to order CD's

Getting rid of some CD's

I forgot to post yesterday. It was so crazy all day long. On Wenesday mornings I scrapbook with my friends and I try not to miss it if I anyway can help it. It is so much fun to get together with them once a week, our group is slowly growing too. There was only 3 of us to begin with and now there are up to 6 when everyone shows up. We are going to meet at my house soon as my hubby builds me a big table, I want a 5'x 8' table built in my scrapbook room, he's going to attach one end to the wall and the other end will just have the 2 legs on the very edge of the table, so there will be no hit knees. The rest of the day I worked on my auto-ship, it is almost ready, just need to delete a file and put a few notes on it. It will go out today!!!

Have a great day,

I've found it's better for me to post in the mornings, so here I am, sitting in my jammies, drinking my coffee and wiping the sleep from my eyes. I worked on my Zoo collection yesterday, it is for the Auto-ship club which is due out the 15-20th and I have always gotten it done by the 15th, but some circumstances in the past week have caused me to be a bit behind, so it's possible it may not be finished until tomorrow. I have it designed, and am just doing the test cuts now, so once I finish the test cuts, I can go through make sure all the files are the same in each section for illustrator, klick-n-kut, wishblade and pazzles, then make a screen shot of the all the black and white jpgs. Sometimes it gets very boring, don't get me wrong, I love designing the files, it's the convering to all file types, cleaning everything up, making sure it cuts right, that's the part that gets tedious.
Love to all my cutter nuts,

Until tomorrow, hopefully :),

Happy Sunday

I had a very good day today, my husband was in a cleaning mood, and we cleaned out closets, corners of the room, boxes of stuff, ect. Our garbage cans are full and our garbage is not going to be picked up until Friday, I think we really "cleaned house". I didn't get to work on any of my files, but the ideas will still be there tomorrow. Yesterday I went to a Red Hat Meeting and most of my best friends were there. I had a wonderful day scrapbooking and chatting with them, so naturally I got no files done yesterday either, I'm going to have to work hard on Monday and Tuesday to get my auto-ship files out on time. It is Zoo related and I have some neat files in it, a giraffe that is very detailed, your going to want it.

Sorry for not posting more often

I just wanted to say I'm sorry for not posting more often, I've been working like crazy trying to get my auto-ship ready for the 15th, this month I'm doing Zoo animals, and think I have all the designs ready to go, but now I need to test cut them all and embellish some of them for show. Then I'll zip them up and have them ready to send out. I'm going to a Red Hat Crop tomorrow so I was trying to get some stuff ready to work on, not doing well with that, since my brain was consumed with the auto-ship files. I'm also cutting overlays that I sell to a local store and got another order for some yesterday, so between that and keeping my house clean, I'm keeping pretty busy. Here is a overlay that Barbie did for me that I will put on my website sometime the first of the week to sell.

Selling cut out overlays

I have just finished designing overlays for the local schools, I'm going to cut out about 5 of each and see if they sell at our local scrapbook store. The manager of the store also wanted the dollhouse, so I cut out 2 of them and decided maybe I could try to sell them on-line also. I have the 2 page train cut out, which is picured on Dec 21st blog, the teddy and a 2 page rubber duck layout. If you'd like to purchase a overlay (these are not embellished) for one the price is $4.99 and for 2 like the 2 page train, duck, dollhouse, ect, the price is $8.99, shipping would be a minimum of $5.00 and a maximum of $8.00, depending on how many you buy. You will pay exact shipping. E-mail me if you have any questions, at

Happy New Year

I hope everyone has a happier year than they did last year. I hope our truck will last until we can save some money to buy a new one, my husbands truck was put in the shop yesterday and $400 later we were told it was on it's last leg, it could last 3 days it could last 3 months, since I don't work we can't afford another car payment right now, so we have resorted to praying. I know it will all work out one way or the other. Last night I went to our local scrapbook store and scrapped for a little while, I worked on this doll house, I think it turned out pretty good, but now that it's done I might have used something clear behind the windows so you could see a picture back there. Let me know what you think.
