So happy to say goodbye

to the ick. I've been sick this week with a flu bug. I started feeling better last night and was back to work today. Yay!

I love love love Two Sisters Designs. I have collected their stuff forever and followed them over to {we are} storytellers when they made the move from Scrap Artist. Recently I learned that they are retiring. I can't believe it! So sad.

So if you don't already own all their amazing stuff, go here to get it before it is gone...

Karah has a new collab kit coming out this week. Here's a little sneak peak-

I can't believe he's going to be driving in a few months. I had to call the insurance last week to find out when I needed to add him on the insurance and such. *sigh* Where does the time go? Seriously!

And I created a envelope album too-

I need to clean up the house and my craft tables so that I can have some scrappy fun this weekend. I hope you all have a super fab Friday and enjoy your weekend too!

Busy busy....

It's been busy since going back to work after Christmas break. The weekend before last we cleaned out the garage which was really nice. It took most of the weekend but it was worth it to have it clean and organized once again. We also cleaned up the yard of fallen limbs and minor damage from the recent storms.

This weekend we went to an antique show at the Clark Co. fairgrounds. It was so much fun looking at all the goods. We did a lot of browsing and a little shopping. Afterwards we went over to Cascade Station in Portland and did some shopping there and IKEA too. Before heading home we stopped and had pizza at BJ's... Yumm-o! Last we stopped and watched Hotel for Dogs and the theater. It was a cute movie. When we finally made it home, I was asleep before my head hit the pillow. lol! It was a lovely day but tiring.

Today has been a laid back day. The kids both have friends over and we have had a lot of fun playing around. We baked cookies, played monopoly on the Wii, watched a movie and now it's winding down. I think I'll make some Chinese for dinner tonight... I haven't made that in a while. :)

I've been scrappy too-

And here's one hybrid project that I made for darling daughter for Valentines Day. I'll slip it into her school binder on Friday to brighten her day.

And a couple of months ago I did a tutorial for The Daily Scrapper for the Chinese New Year. That article just came out a few days ago. If you are interested in reading it, you can find it HERE. It was a fun little project and certainly kid friendly too.

Lots in store for the next few weeks. I guess being this busy keeps me out of trouble though, right!

I hope you all have had a terrific three day weekend. Thanks for checking in!

I live in southwest Washington - smack dab in the middle of the flooding. Thankfully my home is safe but sadly many friends and co-workers in the community are not. They evacuated my kids school yesterday at lunchtime. No school today. And this morning the river is supposed to crest 7' over flood level. That will flood most of the town where I live. In addition, all the rain is causing numerous mud and land slides. Not good.

Earlier this week, I started playing with this fun kit. It is awesome! You really need to pick this up today while its on sale. :)

And here's the low down on how you can get it-

Just another quick post today. I hope you are all having a great week and staying dry.

Welcome 2009

I am so happy and hopeful for all that 2009 holds!

There was 5 new inches of new snow when I woke this morning. Most of the old stuff had melted and it looks like we're in for another round. The news is saying snow off and on for the next three days. Wow!

It's been a little more than two weeks since I've been on break from work and I have really enjoyed it. The house is nearly spic and span. I've thoroughly enjoyed the holidays. I have even organized several things... today I'm tackling the scappy stuff. Three more days to relax and enjoy... Yay!

Today I am trying once again to kick some poor eating habits and to dedicate myself self to exercising more. Still room for improvement in those areas. What are your resolutions?

I have been so productive in the scrappy department on my time off too. Creative time equals a happy me. :) So I'd like to share some stuff-

Did I mention that the kids are gone for the entire weekend and that my hubby will be home after work this evening for the whole weekend. We seems we never have time alone. I will have to open the recipe book and find something fab to make for dinner tonight. Maybe we will go out tomorrow on a date. I'll check to see what playing at the movies. Fun fun fun!

Darling daughter and I went to see Bedtime Stories earlier this week. I must confess it was a cute movie. Especially for an Adam Sandler film. And speaking of movies, my current fave is What Happens in Vegas. It is so so funny. It is a must see if your into comedies. Hilarious! Matter of fact, I think I'll go pop that in now and hit the scrap stash.

You all have a fantastic weekend!!!
