Jan. 25- Jan. 27


Here is the layout I finished this morning for Sunday - Tuesday.  That's me up there, with my foot stuck on the windowsill.  Ed, of course, could not pass up that great photo-op.

I have gotten the sewing bug again.  Last week I saw a gorgeous bag on Vanessa's blog and just HAD to join the Yahoo group that she got the pattern from.  Since I have not sewn much at all in the last six years apart from cloth diapers, I pulled out my fabric and sewing machine and made some practice tote bags.  The one in the picture above is even lined and padded!  Go me!!

Update: Bunny asked if I got a new camera. Yep!! On Tuesday we went to Best Buy and got a new camera. 10 megapixel and has settings for capturing shots of active kids-perfect for my family! Next week I will put bigger pictures up so they are more legible.

Oh-the CDs from Saturday -There are about 250. Yikes!

First Week of P365 is completed

I finished my layout for Jan. 1-10th!  Yay! 


Since I decided to start this late in the evening on the 10th, I do not have a lot of pictures, but I have memories listed to fill in some blanks.  

Oh, and we DID finish school and started the Velcro science lesson.  I had the kids gather a bunch of things from the house and they had to figure out what they all had in common.  Shoes, coats, cloth diapers, and training boxing gloves.  I can't wait to see what the rest of the lessons will be this week.  :-)  Maybe you will get to see them on my next layout.  LOL!

Taking the Plunge

Last night I decided to go ahead and do it. I bought the kit from Weeds & Wildflowers and decided to do P365 . I think it might have been the Smirnoff Ice I had just finished that "helped" me decide. ha ha ha!

This morning I started scrapping Jan 1 -10. When it is done, I will upload it here. I do not get to work on it now, though. I am trying to homeschool this morning and I have a second grader who does not want to do his math. Doesn't he know that makes me want to stop far the day so I can scrap?? We got lots more to go, so I hope he gets done soon. I have a cool lesson for science about Velcro and I think he will like it. He has a big motivation to finish school, too. When he is done for the day, he is allowed to play Wii. If he refuses to do his work, no Wii until he is caught up. In the fall, he was grounded from the Wii for three days because he refused to do his lessons. I think he "learned his lesson" that week. LOL!

Yeah! He just handed me his finished math sheet!

Should I try P365??

I am trying to decide whether or not to do P365 this year. Yesterday I saw a GORGEOUS kit at Weeds & Wildflower Design which will make it easy to scrap P365 and lots of other stuff too. I am trying to talk myself into forking up the $20 to buy the bundle set.

I do not have pictures for every day this year, but I have some photos and of course memories. I am such a perfectionist that I am afraid of starting and not completing it.
