I have a new found addiction. It is one of the reasons I have not been productive in my scrap room. I have gotten HOOKED on the twilight series. OMG!! I love it!! I bought book one, read it over the weekend. On Monday, which is Laundry Day, Wal-Mart Day, In general, Chore Day, I bought book two. I finished it that night. Like I said, I am HOOKED. Yesterday(Tuesday) I went to Hastings to see if they had the paperbacks for 3 and 4. They did not. I knew by looking at the price that I could get the hardbacks cheaper at wal-mart. So off we went. I am only about halfway through the 3rd one. I've been trying really hard to get some work done around the house. I'm hosting a Stampin Up! party at my house on Sunday. I've got to get my house and scrap room picked up but this addiction keeps getting in the way. Anyway, this is why I've been MIA lately. When I get finished with these books I am so going to have withdrawl.

The Kindness of Strangers

Joseph and I went out to get the mail this afternoon. While we were out by the road. The neighbor across the road hollered at us. (We've never met them in the 4 years since we've been here) He asked me if I wanted some iris bulbs he had just dug up. yea I got flowers for valentines day!! So Joseph and I planted them out by the concrete bench. Bad news is I got some fire ant bites on my hand and now it is swelling and itching. Got to take the bad with the good. Can't wait until they bloom!!

Sketch Saturday #37

This is the card I made for Sketch Saturday's sketch #37.

I finally got to use my new stamps from GinaK. The cupcake is from the new Sweetest Blessings. I also used my new Nesties. I got 4 new sets this week. Hobby Lobby had them on 30%. I got circles, squares, rectangles, and hearts.

Thursday's accomplishments

Thursday is story hour at the library. I did not feel well Thursday. We went anyway. I holed up in my room the rest of the day and this is what I got done.

I can't take credit for this one. This is a kit from Lickety Split Scrapbooks. I got it a year or two ago at GASC in Arlington.

I seem to have used the same layout for these next two. Oh well, you find something that works why not stick to it.

I'm working in my room today, so I will have some things to show you later.

Blog changes

Today is Tuesday. That means after school it is off to the brownie meeting, then a quick potty break and off to the cubscout meeting. I am in charge of the cub scout meeting tonight, so we have to go. Nuts. Right now as I am typing this I've got my cricut running cutting out a zillion fleur-de-leis. The blue and gold banquet is next week and we have to make table decorations. I hate having to make table decorations. 9 and 10 year old boys do not like to make table decorations.

Ok time to regroup. I was playing on the puter last night and decided to change the look of the blog. I still don't know how to do a bunch but I am slowly figuring it out. Hope you like it.

Off to work on scout stuff. Hopefully I'll get to come back in my room later this afternoon. It's not looking good. At least not until after bedtime.
