I have the bug...It's like old times...Before I actually "worked" in the biz kinda thing...It started when I did the "designer of the month" for Scrapbook Bakery...When I went to CKU-A Orlando I started a little travel journal...Scrapped every night while at CKU and finished it this week!
I also finished the calendar "A year to remember" from my class at the Creative Escape, thank Heidi Jones...LOVE it! Giving it to my MIL for Christmas! DONE...
On Friday this was in the mail... It is the contents from NOVEMBER's Scarlet Lime kit...My dear friend Christy Tomlinson asked me to be again..."Guest designer" So loved all the amazing stuff...So eclectic and random! LOVED all the vintage buttons and trims...LOVED her paper choices! LOVE LOVED the little hand made pinwheels...LOVED!
So I have been Scrapbooking...And I am reminded why and how I started this fabulous hobby! I have had the best time...I plan to keep it up! Scrap at least 2-3 nights a week...Now is a good time...Football is over, I am home with the kids and can just sit in my new space and CREATE...LOVE IT! Here are a few sneak peaks at what I did with all this fun stuff...And I have TONS left over to play with! Thanks Christy! LOVED it! LOVE YOU...
Last night I started working on my 21 day challenge from Rhonna Farrer's CE class...LOVE her, LOVE her stuff...
I hope you all make time to CREATE... Happy Sunday! kiss kiss m ps I will take some shots of my CKU album...i love it, i used MM's new 5th Ave line...So loving it!
Just want to put this out there...I have so many dear friends in the fire ravaged California that could use all the good thoughts and prayers headed their way...To watch what is going on there breaks my heart...I can't even imagine what I would be thinking or going through...My dear dear dear friend Emily has been evacuated from her home as well as a dear co-worker at MM Jen Allen...I chatted with em today, she is ok, shaken but left her home with some clothing and her beloved scrapbooks...Can you Imagine? What I ask is that we all take the time to be grateful...Grateful for what we have and where we are...Also take some time to pray for those going through a terribly tough time... love to you in California tonight... kiss kiss m
Just a few things about my office...Thanks for all the comments and e-mails! I just thought I would answer a few common questions asked...First, the paint I used is Bher and it is called Asparagus! LOVE the green...Two coats made it perfect! Love the White Crown Molding...Totally pops! Second, the little peak a boo boxes, these are from Ikea...LOVE the little window...I added my own ribbon, the boxes you have to put together, but if I can do it...Please so easy! Ok third, the other boxes, most of them are just a mix from ikea and the ones with chalk boards, Target in the kids sections, love these! Ok...The Wall unit...Please i love these so much I have two! They are of course MM's and i LOVE them! LOVE the plastic containers...I took out the dowels for the ribbon, I have WAY too much ribbon and love putting my MM Shimmer there instead! LOVE the little shelves and love that we thought of the size from the Noteworthy jar sets...They fit perf! Ok my desk! Grant Aslett built this for me, it is one of my favorite things...It is an old door and desk combo. Love that i can slide fun things in between the glass...LOVE that it is so long! I work on a MM mat, as to protect the glass...I have all my favorite things right at my finger tips...It is always loaded with stacks of projects I am working on! But when I scrap, i just clear it off and go! This I got at TJ MAXX, love it!
Love that it has all these huge drawers, and it looks so good too and hardly takes any space! Grant drilled holes in the handles so I could label them! He's genious! These are what totally changed my space for me...They are from Ikea...LOVE LOVE LOVE these...I have so much stuff in them! Love that my 12x12 paper fits into them perfectly...They are awesome, cheep and look GREAT! Anyway...Just had some great comments and e-mails! I hope my space inspires you, I know i love creating in it...Love all my "stuff" most gifts or things gathered from trips I have taken all over the world, teaching scrapbooking! So great! Love my space! kiss kiss m
I woke up this morning in Beautiful Midway Utah to this... Yes that is snow! This is the view from our chalet:
It is supposed to be Fall! This is so normal for Utah, it was amazingly beautiful! Midway is about an hour away from our house, and is close to Park City, we went up for the weekend to celebrate Grant Aslett's parents 50th wedding anniversary and My Mother-in-laws birthday! All of Grant's sisters and brother were here to celebrate! We had a wonderful time watching old movies of Grant and his sibs as kids, I made a scrapbook for my MIL and we took photos of all the grandkids
and they wrote sweet notes to her in it, we went into Park City to shop, i bought a darling little wallet at Coach to match my new purse I bought in Florida...loving...We played a little Phase 10 our families favorite card game. We ate like pigs...Sat by the fire chatting, the kids played guitar hero with their cousins,
and we had the most lovely weekend...Love the snow! I am sure it will be gone tomorrow...But living in Utah there is always more on it's way...
It was a great weekend...Good to be home... Tomorrow is the start of a new week...One where I will be HOME...Gonna make Pumpkin Chocolate chip muffins...Work from home and enjoy every minute of it... Night... kiss kiss m
