Happy Mother's Day

I haven't called my Mother yet!! My phone was almost dead so I'm letting it charge a bit first. :p

Spent some of the day organizing and going through my bankers box of scrappy bits!! Some of them have bit the dust. There were some swappy things that I put in a pile to go and some that I kept. Remind me DO NOT PULL OUT A FULL SHEET OF WHITE CARDSTOCK! OMG I have a whole ziplock packed with just white cardstock! I have very little red though! I guess I don't do red a lot :p I have two bags of patterned too :p

I went to the library today and checked out some organizing and designing books and some Hellsing Mangas. I read the Mangas all ready and started in on one of the junk books. If I followed this I'd have no crafty stuff ROFL well hardly any but maybe it would be a good thing? I don't think I can do it in GASP 4 days though! Then there's the boxes of stuff we moved with from FL that had no place to open in here. I know it's hard for me to open that and go ohh that's where that was!!! Do I really need to keep all my bunnies and Eeyores! OMG I won't be able to do it! But it would save me building shelves to show it all! hmmm tough descisions!

Ah well I have more packing calling me! Hubby bought me more boxes :D

6 more days and counting

Wholy cow I had two comments and I feel like a rockstar! ROFL

The closing Day is my Birthday the 15th. :D so that weekend we will be moving in! and I still don't have my scrappy stuff or my books packed :p ug I'm slooowwww. Then I get distracted by the remodel shows on HGTV LOL. Did anyone see Rate My Space last night? I loved that table but I don't think I'll be able to make my own :p I'm looking at buying the one at Michaels but they never have enough of the cubes :p I tried writing down the inspiration rooms too but I'm having a hard time navigating that site :p I can't figure out what craft room would be, other rooms so far have entry ways and other spaces so far.

Well off to do laundry and pack and find more things to give away. Probably go out shopping for a friend since she lives out in the boonies and can't get to stuff ;)

I made cards with the kids yesterday and 3 altered note book covers for Mother's Day Gifts. I still need to sand the note books so the covers will stick better. So my Mother, Granny and MIL will have a belated M's day present. Ah well. I'm a little bit on the way to my 0/100 no buying challenge Whoo hoo!

Have a great weekend and a happy Mother's Day ;)

gr arg

ok why does the Blog List have to go away so I can change the Design? sigh I'll make the list again tomorrow.

May? really All ready

Bad Bad Blogger I know.

Well here it is May. I will turn 27 on May 15th. I have the day off from work and I will be closing on a new Town House :D whoo hoo!! I'll be closer to my scrappy friend and another interstate is close by so I'm not too far from work and my other friends :D

The thing I love about the new place is I will have MY OWN SCRAPPY ROOM!! Yeah :D I will paint it Lavendar :D There's a room in the Lowes or Home Depot Paint book that I'm going to copy. Then it will be a matter of saving money for a new craft table in the middle of the room :D No more Dining room for me!

The sad thing is trying to pack all of this stuff!

I got to meet some scrappy friends during the month of April and had a blast. I loaded up a bunch of scrappy stuff and let them have at it :D then I bought a bunch of stuff too!!! So with that and the new place I'm on a no buying until I use up stash! If I went by how much I spent on my vak that was 96.50 worth of scrappy stuff (well actually more because I went to a clearance place where it was 50% off and we hit a HUGE JA's Sale on the way back LOL so worth more yes) NUT it was stuff I NEEDED!! ROFL ;)

So my no buying LO's 8X8 and bigger count as 1, cards and smaller LO's count as 1/2, alterd items um things over 8 inches count as 1, under that 1/2 or 1/4 if they're itty bitty or I'll figure out something else LOL I'm only allowed to buy more adhesive, albums (trust me I just filled 2 these may be necissary!) and cardstock if I absolutly run out)

Serendipity is having an awesome May Mahem Crop so hopefully after I move I can catch up on all the wonderful challenges or I'll sneak some stuff in, keep a stash to the side that I can still scrap from :D maybe take it to work and pray all the kids fall asleep :p
