Getting Motivated

I decided I would put my pics up of the three projects that I have in the works at the moment. I know I am supposed to do it on Monday but I didn't get in here this week until yesterday. *Shame* :)

I figured since hubby is on patrol tonight & just announced he is working Sunday too....that it would give me some time to (hopefully) get these done before Monday. Oh and don't doubt for a minute that I wont have one for Monday either. Hahaha I am the queen of WIP's (works in progress). LOL So I have to get it in gear. I need to stay focused, stay motivated, hydrated & well stocked in snacks. Just Kidding! I really am loving this challenge. Thanks Steph!

On another note, I wanted to show you this adorable card my stepmom sent me today. It made me cry. I believe thats me in the picture and aren't the shoes soooo cute. She is a wondeful photographer as you see in all the pics of my family on here. Well things have kind of been a little rough around here with lack of work, small town living and our impending move back to San Diego :( If you haven't been in the loop....hubby has decided to uproot us from our beautiful small town living (poor but small town) for the last five years in hopes of making more $$ & having some sort of future. I am none too happy about it other than the fact we will be home with our family & friends & my hubby will be happier. Where we live is gorgeous & quaint but the economy goes hand in hand with that. It has been such a struggle since we got here five years ago. Hopefully this will be better for us in the long run. *Keeping fingers crossed & saying prayers*. Anyways, I was talking to my dad & stepmom & got really emotional over it all. So I open this card & the outpouring of love & kindness was just too much for me to take. It was such a beautiful card & it just warmed my heart when I needed it the most. Now everytime I look at this card it makes me smile. :)
*Up above on the left is my bunny box. Middle pic is my ornie order from Etsy. Right pic is my bunnies from a new pattern from Heartspun Treasure Primitives. Must have these done by Monday! ;)

Like I said.... I better get a move on.....lots of work to do. Please email if you decide to take part in our little challenge. It will be lots of fun keeping up with all of our processes and finished projects.

It's Good To Be Back

Well, it's good to be back. Sheesh! I never intended to be gone for this long. With the holidays, conventions & just plain ol sickness my absense just grew & grew! I am glad to be back. Woo Hoo! I promised myself I was gonna get in here & get busy.....shake things up a bit!

First off Steph, from Sunshine N Ravioli, has started a Monday Blog called Monkey In The Middle. It is a way to post all of your WIP's (works in progress). She is hoping that it will motivate her to get things done. Well I loved the idea & have adopted it too. I will post every monday what I am working on so you can share my progress with me. Be happy to start your own MITM. Steph had this great graphic & said we could use it. So go ahead & grab it if you want to start your own up. I am thinking...what the heck...if this motivates me to get something done...then there is no loss there. Hahaha

I have gotten bitten by the scrapbooking/stamping bug again. After dragging all of my supplies....and I do mean dragging...up from the basement. I have been on a paper bag book frenzy! I am loving it! I just finished a book for my niece Jesica for her birthday. I absolutley love it. I also made my friend Marissa two of them for a Christmas swap & fell in love. I am so sad to say that I forgot to take pics of those albums. Kind of bummed since they were my firsts. I am sure Rissa would copy them for me if I beg her. :) She has been having some computer problems. So maybe once she is up & running again she will do that. She is the biggest sweetie around. LOL...I am adding pics of Jesica's book that I finished. I am currently working on another one for my niece Carolynne whose b-day is coming in March. I figure these teenage girls will love putting their pics & mementos into them.

Well I certainly have been a little long winded. Sorry! I am just excited about all of the things that I have been doing. After being sick for so sure is good to be back up & crafting.
Well I am off to work on my album. I also have some more bunnies in the works. I will hopefully get these bunnies listed on my Ebay & Etsy site by the end of the weekend. Here are two bunnies that I did from Missy's..... free pattern. I just love them. I may list them again....but not sure if I will. I just may keep these cuties for myself!

Well have a terrific day & glad to be back. Toodles
