"You Love Him"

Here's a layout I started on Saturday. I just finished it off tonight. I had been on a scrappy roll there for a bit and inevitably, I lost my mojo. Or maybe it's the weather. We got a cold front (cold for us) move in and it makes me just want to stay snuggled up on the couch in my favorite sweater. There's no process video for this one because when I started it, my sis and I were Skype scrapping. I hope to have a new process video up this week. Thanks for stopping by :)

A Move....

In my scrap area that is! Even though I JUST moved my stuff around about a month ago....I don't know what possessed me to do it again! lol Actually, I really wanted my table in front of the window to get as much natural light for when I record my videos. My scrap area is actually half of our living room. We don't have any extra empty rooms that I can take over. Our living room is pretty long, so half of it is mine and the other half has our sofas, tv, ect. It has its advantages and disadvantages. I like that I can be scrapping at my table and talk to the kids or The Hubby if they are watching tv or playing video games, but sometimes they're too noisy and it would be nice to have a room I could close the door to and escape all the noise for a while. I also don't like that my stuff is out where everyone can see it. Although, I'm not messy and I rarely leave stuff out on my table, all my supplies and shelves are pretty much out where it can all be seen. For now though, it will have to do.  I've actually had my scrap area set up in this same way before, but had moved it...don't ask me why! Well, actually...I am one of those people who LOVES rearranging furniture every so often, so that's probably why I do! I gave myself and hour, but it took me TWO! Half way through, I was tired and wanted to stop and wondered what the heck I had been thinking! And sadly, I don't know what I did, but I ended up hurting my left shoulder. It might have been lifting and moving my HEAVY stacks of patterned papers. Funny how it's usually when I'm moving stuff that I realize just how much stuff I have...and sometimes it's SCARY! lol In a good way! I really like the way it looks and is set up now and hopefully, the pain in my shoulder will serve to remind me to stop moving things around!

I also went by Michaels today in hopes of finding and buying all of those Heidi Swapp stamps from the Hello Today line, but sadly, there were only 3 sets there. Not 3 different styles...literally THREE stamp sets! They were pretty wiped out. I picked the two I liked the most and left the other there and had my hubby use a coupon as well. Next time, I will take the kids and hubby and use four coupons! lol

I was working on another layout earlier today. My sister and I were Skype scrapping, but I didn't get to finish because The Hubby came home from work and we left to run errands. I hope to finish it up tomorrow and I'll post a picture of the finished product. Here are some pictures to look at. Thanks for stopping by!

"The Kiss"

Here's a layout I worked on yesterday. Watching Patty (Patty Sandberg on You Tube) work on all her amazing wedding pages recently, inspired me to print out some wedding pics and work on a page. Here are some pictures and process video link. Thanks for stopping by :)

Process Video #2 "Max"

So, I was able to make another process video last night. I tried a different set up with my webcam and worked at a different table at a different angle. It worked out pretty well and I think I'll be doing them there from now on. I really think the video quality would look a lot better if I had more natural light, but our house is a dungeon. I had my scrap table in front of a window not too long ago and for a brief second I thought about moving it back there, but I just recently....VERY recently (like the Monday before New Years Day) moved everything around and I don't feel like doing it again. And the set up I have now gives me more table top space. We shall see. Below is a picture of the finished layout and further down, you'll find a link to the process video. I forgot to mention that a few days ago, I saw my friend Emily who is omgitsemily074 on You Tube post a link to a DT call for Hip Kit club which she is a part of. I think I've tried out for 2 other DTs (can't remember which at the moment) and have never made the cut, so naturally I'm a little hesitant.....buuuut...I'm going to give it a go anyway. Doesn't hurt to try. Either way, you have to submit 3 LOs and 3 cards, but one of each has to be made specifically for the DT call. This will be my LO submission. Now, I just need to work on my card which I think I'll do later on today. Not sure if I'll do a process video on that or not, but if I do...I'll post the link and a picture here. Thanks for stopping by!

Long time coming.....

Wow! It has been a long time since I updated my blog. It has been so neglected and I think it's time to breathe some new life into it. I will still keep it for taking note of personal stuff going on in our lives, but will definitely use it to showcase my latest scrappy projects and purchases and give you all any links to process videos on my You Tube channel which I am going to try to start doing more of. I recorded and uploaded my first one a couple of days ago and other than a small mishap in the middle of recording where I knocked my webcam from where I had propped it really enjoyed doing it and would like to make some more. So, with that being said, here are some pictures of my recent layouts for 2014. I haven't set a LO goal for myself like I have in the past years as I'm not always feeling the scrappy mojo and don't want to put any unnecessary pressure on myself to complete x amount of layouts. Thanks to all of you who still read my blog. For those of you who don't know about my You Tube channel, here is a link:
