Almost there...

I have 2 1/2 days left of school before the Christmas break!! I am so excited!! Two weeks off!! I have so much stuff planned to do, cleaning ugh!! But I need to do a more major clean up of the house..lots of scrapping, relaxing, hanging out with friends and family, hubby will be good!!

I have been so busy with getting Christmas gifts ready that I really haven't had much of a chance to blog, sorry!! Have been doing a bit of scrapping in between kind of as a break from the Christmas gift making but, I am almost done!! Will be finishing the gifts off over the next couple of days and will post some pictures of them soon too!!

Things at home with Jared have been so good. Things are good with us and life. It feels good. Not too much to worry about, still figuring things out but we're doing it together. Lots of hanging out and talking. I am just absolutely loving it!!

Now I wanted to share some scrappies!!

That's about it for now, will be back soon!! Want to post some Xmas pics!! Have a good rest of the week!!

So happy it's Friday!! YAY!! Not much going on. Lots of stuff to do still for Christmas, still making things but, it's coming along...will show pics soon too!! So, I fianlly managed to upload my minis that I have been making. I love making them!! So fun and easy and easily addictive. It's also fun to make something different!! I can for see me making more!! Already have a couple of other ideas for some...

So, what are you all doing this weekend?! Probably what I'm doing too..Jared and I are going Christmas shopping this weekend, hopefully we'll get most of it done!! I went to the mall on Wednesday to pick up this...

I absolutely loved Laverne and Shirley in high school, now I know it's not from my generation but they used to show reruns of it all the time and my bff in high school and I used to watch them all the time together, that and Grease, that's another story!! I was so happy when they started bringing the series out on, that is what I will be watching this weekend and making Christmas gifts.

I also bought this...

Had to after watching the Victoria Secret Fashion Show..loved them when they were around while in high school!! Have been listening to them in the car and totally just dancing away while driving!!

Hope you all have a good weekend!!

I had a good and relaxing weekend!! It snowed all weekend over here. And it was so nice to stay inside, nice and warm!! I didn't have anywhere to go so I stayed home!! And i was busy being creative!! Made lots of things!! Did some scrappies and worked on some Christmas gifts that I am making for friends and family. Will share later. But for now here I what I made...

Love how these pretty snowflakes came out!! And of course when I was done there was glitter on me and everywhere else.

And now some pages, they are all from the Sistv collections. I finally had a chance to play with them!! Cannot wait to do some more!! I love these collections they are so easy to use and so fun!!

Love how the pages came out!! I did most of these pages on Saturday!! And Sunday I was busy creating in the kitchen. Made a new recipe in the slow cooker, Tamale Pie it turned out really yummy and I baked some Oatmeal and Raisin Cookies so yummy!! Something about snow and cold just makes you want to cook and bake.

Jared was home all of Sunday too, he was busy watching his Bears game. Which unfortunately they lost. I also worked on another mini album that I'm almost done and then I will post!! I still have to post the mini I made about Hawaii.

And we watched Desperate Housewives, what's going to happen to Tom and the kids? And watched also Brothers and Sisters, I am so happy that Kitty and Robert got married. Sometimes I wish how fun it would be to join in on one of their family get togethers, I know it's only tv but still. Can't wait to see what happens next.

The snow was still here when I woke up this morning but, it's starting to rain so, unfortunately I don't think school will be having a snow day!! Which is too bad 'cause I was kind of thinking it would be nice to get all creative again today!!

Also wanted to say thank you to everybody for all the wonderful comments from my last post. Getting to be chosen for the catwalk has totally made my week or even more..year but, it was a total boost of confidence!!

Hope you all have a good week!! Be back soon!!

I just called Jared at work to tell him!! I swear I thought I was going to cry!! So happy!! Thanks Brandy for the heads up!!
Check me out here
Have a fabulous tuesday!!

The last few weeks...

Life has been so busy this month!! With work, school and play I haven't really had a chance to update!! That and I have been a little lazy!! We celebrated Jared's 30th birthday this month, and my SU business has been doing really well this month that and I haven't really had a chance to scrap except maybe once and I am in complete withdrawal!!

Anyways back to Jared. Yes my hubby is 30, it's hard to believe that he is 30 already and I am not too far behind either!! But I threw him a surprise party for his bday and he was completely surprised!! I totally got him, he was in complete shock that when he walked in he walked out a couple of seconds after just to take everything in!! It was too funny and I was all worried when it happened 'cause I was thinking..what did I do?! But he was okay. I think more surprised with everybody there and the fact that his wife was sneaky..hehehe!! Here are some pics:

I planned the party a week before his actual bday and it was so hard to come up with a story for him to actually come home!! He was told that his brother's girlfriend was throwing a surprise party for him, their bdays are actually a week apart, it worked out well except that he was hard to get him to come home, he called me on the phone and told me that he was running late and that he was going to just meet me at his brother's place so, he wouldn't ruin the surprise and he was pretty insistent until finally his co-worker kept bugging him that he couldn't go to his brother's party all stinky and that he should go home and shower...his co-worker was helping me out and Jared listened to him and he came home..phew!! It was tons of fun!! Lots of food and drinks, good times!!

For Jared's actual birthday it was over a long weekend and it was just the two of us, made him Sheperd's pie, very good and we had cupcakes!!

So, that's it!! Lots of other stuff going on..deciding about things and figuring things out. Will just have to see what happens!! But that's it for now!! I will post again soon...happy weekend!!

Hopefully during the rest of the week or this coming weekend!! Did do lots of scrapping though so, that' good!!

I actually tried the OLW and Scrapjacked challenges, totally love how they turned out too!!

Nervous and Excited

I have been meaning to post earlier but, last week was so busy. I was trying to finish up all mu Stampin'Up stuff. I had my first workshop this past Sunday. In the beginning I was more excited than nervous but, as soon as I got to the place, I got really nervous and a bit shaky. Almost how I used to feel when we would have to do speeches in front of the class in high school. But it was good. Luckily it was mostly in front of people I knew, my sil, and Jared's brother girlfriend. Everybody was really easy going and it was fun!! And I did well in sales which is good and made a little moolah!! Always good!!

I also started a blog for my Stampin'Up stuff. I'm planning on posting about my workshops, classes I am offering, specials, and different projects. Basically anything I can think of. So, please check me out!! And leave me a comment!!
It's Stamps, Ink and Paper

So, I was bad. Jared and I are trying to figure out this whole $$$ thing and saving so, we've kind of started a budget and I went a little crazy last week and bought a couple of things. I feel bad. I have been thinking about taking the things back but, Jared says not to worry about it. But it's hard. And I was doing so well for a bit..gotta get back on track!!

Super excited that this week is a short week!! I get the day off on Friday!! We have a province wide teacher professional day!! YAY!! I have no meetings or conferences to go to so, I get the day off!! Super excited!! Might go and get my hair don, I am debating it now because of the $$$ thing, but sleeping in and scrapping is definetly on the list!! And I need to plant some bulbs finally for the Spring!! Maybe some cleaning..we'll see how I am feeling!!

That's it for now, more to come soon!! Have a super wek!! Ciao!!

Happy "Turkey" Day!!

So excited that it is a long weekend this weekend!! YAY!! Up here in Canada we're celebrating our Thanksgiving this weekend!! So Jared and I get two turkey dinners this weekend!!

The headaches are still here. Which totally sucks but it's connected to my tooth. Thankfully they're not migraines and I also thought that's what they were or a left over of my cold. So, yesterday I went to the dentist and she gave me some antibiotics and hopefully that works. The pain of the tooth and the headaches better go away soon.

Watched Grey's last night, it was good as always!!Love that show!! And tonight Jared and I are going for dinner with some friends. I hope I can eat okay, I had for dinner yesterday soup and smoothie. We're having Mexican, I already feel bad, every time i go for Mexican 'cause my mom's Mexican food is the best!!

I also did some more scrapping this week. Did more pages from my
SOMO kit. The September kit is so fun!! I found it easier to use than the August kit.

Check them out at SIS!!

Hope everyone has a good weekend!!

Life and Being busy

Sorry for the lack of blogging. Life has been busy and stuff has been going on and I have been feeling a little negative and so, I have not wanted to post anything. Just decided to disappear for a bit. But things are looking good again and everything is going to get all sorted out so, that's always good.

Besides life and other things, everything has been good. Have been working on my Stampin'Up stuff and getting everything all organized. Almost have all my class stuff ready. It's been taking me awhile but that's okay. I also find that sometimes the creative juices get sucked out of you!! Especially when it's kind of like "work" and you have to do it. But it's getting there. My goal is to have it all ready and done by next week. I have my first party next weekend. So, I am super excited and nervous. Still trying to figure out how I am going to teach's easier to do than teach I think. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

I bought a whole bunch of bulbs to plant for next year!! So excited already to see thme bloom!! Especially since everything in my garden has pretty much died. Boo!! I am enjoying the fall weather..the rain and cold is not too bad..not yet anyways!! Still love summer!!

Last week was the season premiere of a whole bunch of new shows!! YAY!! That made me happy!! Monday's because Jared is home we watch Heroes, K*ville and CSI Miami..k8ville was good and Heroes love it, they always leave you hanging!! Wednesday, I love Gossip Girl so bad but so good..kind of like the OC and ANTM so fun!! Thursday Grey's it and also watched Big shots..kind of like Sex and the City for guys, Friday Ghost Whisperer and Las Vegas, love those!! And Sunday I think is probably one of my fave days for tv..Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters..LOVE those two shows!!

This past weekend I finally caught the awful cold bug that has been going around, I probably caught it from Jared he was sick the weekend before. It was bearable except for the headaches...I don't feel like doing anything!! But for some reason I got a whole bunch of creative mojo going when the headaches weren't there. Got lots done and working on two minis which I will share soon but for now here we go...

These two pages are made with the Aug. kit of SOMO not quite sure I like them, I had a hard time with this kit.

I just got the September kit for SOMO on Friday so, I managed to do a page and working on a mini with this kit too..will share soon!! Quite happy with this one!! Did it yesterday while watching DH and Brothers & Sisters.

All my pages are over at SIS check 'em out, the link is on the side bar!!

That's it for now I will try to do another post again this week and update more often than not..happy monday everybody!!

So glad it's Thursday!! I need the weekend. Have been wanting to scrap, just got my August kit from SOMO and I am excited to play with the goodies plus some other things I want to work on!! And Jared has been so busy with work that we haven't really had a chance to spend time together so, I am looking forward to some time with my hubby!!

I did do some scrapping last weekend while watching the Bears game with hubby!! Check it out!!

And I did my first 6x12 page..I liked the size will definetly do some more pages in that size!!

Hope everyone is having a good week!! Have a super weekend!!
