News





This is a card I made awhile ago. I've been working on a layout since before we moved but I'm still not done with it, I will post it when we're done. We are all moved, and mostly moved in, I still have to excavate some stuff that is in a storage room at our new apartments, but it's little stuff like my swimsuit, my fall sweaters, etc. Our new place is tiny, but very cute. We got rid of a ton of stuff, but it was truly all junk. The stuff we kept is all our nicest stuff, so I think our new place has class! We also live 1.41 miles (according to mapquest) from our work so we might go down to one car and then we will be saving so much money!!! In gas alone, especially!

This is the main room, it is a dining room/living room/scraproom all in one.

This is my micro-kitchen, but it actually has just about as much cupboard/pantry space as our old place, and storage is definitely our biggest need, since I seem to love to accumulate STUFF!!!

This is our cute lil mini-yard!
I did laundry the other day in the laundry room with quarters and gigantic IKEA bags to carry stuff, it was pretty painless since we live in a really small complex I can just walk over there. And we've dipped in the mini-pool a few times, very nice on a hot summer day. And I've had plenty of relaxing baths since we've been here, which may be my favorite thing of all!

Here's my new scrapspace, directly behind the couch and TV, which was very sweet of Jesse to agree to.

I can sit and watch movies now with Jesse, scrapping at the same time!!!

And something really cool is that I won this free kit from gypsyrosepaperie.com
They are fun and nostalgic, I love the stuff and I can't wait to use it!!!!
I'm still reading everyone's blogs, I will try to comment too. I'm working about 50-60 hours per week so I'm super busy, but I will still try and catch up soon!

Hi! I love that card! Love the colors! Thanks for stopping by my blog. You asked what font it was that I used for the title on my Bobunny album... those are actually red stickers from Doodlebug. They come in a variety of colors. I love them! Hope that helps. :)

You are finally moved, I was wondering where you were in that process. Trust me, you KNOW I know how much that sucks! lol

It is nice to see you getting unpacked and set up, your place looks really cute! Very nice of Jesse to let you put your space in the living room, proves he knows how important it is to you! Now that we are all moved (you, me, kay) we need to get together for a crop!!

Christina, thanks for your comments, you know I love them! As for your question about SBA, I wouldn't know if they are getting them. I haven't officially quit, and they haven't fired me, but I am not working there anymore. I can give you more detail in person, kwim?!? I do know they did not go to CHA.

Love the cards, glad to see your all moved in and your lucky to have a hubby let you have a scrap place. I am lucky to because I got to convert a unused bedroom after one of our sons moved out. Take care and catch you soon.
