Only a month

Well it has only been one month exactly since I posted.... One of my resolutions for the year of 2008 is to blog more faithfully! I hope that I can do it. I always seem to let life get in the way of me doing the things that I want to do and enjoy doing. I am hoping in the coming year to find a happy medium.

Lately I find it hard to come up with inspiration for scrapbook layouts because I am always having to think about doing them classes. I may have to cut back on my classes until my inspiration comes back. I hope not because I really do love teaching them.

I was so happy last night because I actually sat down in my scraproom and was looking at a layout in the December issue of Memory Makers and have wanted to try this layout for a while, but just haven't had the chance. Well last night I did it and I am so happy that I was able to scrap for myself! I had forgotten how enjoyable and relaxing it can be, (even if it is scraplifted).

Here it is:

so I hope that everyone has a wonderful New Year!!! I am off to scrap now :)

It's been awhile

since I have posted, and I have been meaning to post for the past couple of days, but life in general has been soooo hectice since the week of Thanksgiving. That Monday, my father in law had a massive heart attack. He actually died twice on the way to the hospital. He survived a heart attack that not many people survive. They call it the widow maker. He had an angel with him that day!

Wayne has been sick with a cold and still going to school 3 days a week and working a 48 hour shift. I have been busy with cleaning houses, teaching scrapbooking classes 1 or 2 times a week and taking kids to appointments. I think I need to stop and breathe!

We had the Christmas parade in Whitesville today. It was good. I think that next year though I will have Joey stay with Marilynn so that I can take good pictures. I miss not being able to see Ariel performing. Wayne played Santa and rode in the ladder truck. Then he sat for several hours for kids to sit on "Santa's" lap and get a bag of goodies. Tomorrow we have the Christmas party for the Racine Volunteer Fire Department.

So no rest this weekend and I have 3 houses clean, 2 scrapbooking classes, 3 other appointments and I don't know what in the heck else for this week, lol

I will try to find some time to post some pictures, but for now you can drool over this one:
