Thought I would do a random post today. So many things going on, and on my mind!!

1. Parent/Teacher Conferences: I have parent and teacher conferences tomorrow. So looking forward to having this be done, have it also next Thursday. So, wish me luck!!

2. ATC or Artist Trading Cards: I did my first ones, and I absolutely LOVED it!! Check out my post from before. It was so easy and I LOVE how you can use your leftover scraps and be completely artistic!! Tons of fun!! I have another that I am doing over at
SIS. Super excited about this one too, the
fabulous Brandy is hosting it and it's all about Starbucks, so many ideas swirling in my head.

3. Books...I totally back into reading again. LOVE it, I have so many books piled up next to my bed that I am so excited to read. I am currently reading this book:

Absolutely LOVING it, excited to watch the movie again after I'm done but, I think I might find some more books of her too. And maybe read more books of history and people from way back when...does that make any sense?! Any suggestions would be great!!

4. Spring and Spring Break: Is almost here!! I have Spring Break in two and a half weeks YAY!! and spring is almost here all the flowers that are coming out bulbs are slowly peeking through but, I love having a vase flowers in the house like the tulips I bought the other day. SO pretty!!

5. Budget: So, I know it's only really been a week since I wrote down that I wasn't going to buy any scrap goodies until I go shopping with Connie over Spring Break over the border and I have been doing good. I go over to a couple of scrapbooking the ones on my side bar and fill my shopping cart so, far I haven't purchased anything, I'm doing good...

6. Scrap Goodies: It was so nice on both Monday and Tuesday I received some scrap goodies in the mail, this is okay for the budget..stuff from Stampin'Up for some workshops and the SOMO February kit super excited to play with this and some fabulous and wonderful goodies from the fabulous Jill that I won in her RAK!! This will totally help with the scrap budget. Super excited to play this weekend!!

That is all I have so far!! I hope you all have a good rest of the week!! And happy weekend too!! Hugs!!

Quickly Hooked

Just wanted to do a quick post. Weekend was good. Busy, but good. Taught a class, slept in, scrapped a bit and spent some time with hubby. Which I always love.

I finished my first ATC. Was so excited about this I joined a Beautiful Blooms ATC over at SIS and I can see how addicting it can be to make these, and it's fairly quick too. Good way to use up all your left over scraps.

Here's how it turned out...

Hope everyone had a good weekend. More later. Happy Monday!!

Mondays Come Too Fast!!

The weekend just flew by. They always do. But lately it just seems even quicker. And I don't have a day off like the rest of the country does, very unfair. They have talked about changing it, let's hope it goes in effect next year. That would be nice.

My weekend was good. Friday night Jared and I went out for our Valentine's Dinner. It was fun. Lots of talking and laughing. I just LOVE hanging out with my hubby!! After we went to Blockbuster and rented a movie. We rented Ocean's 13. But I ended up falling asleep on the couch. I was super tired plus I think the Bellini and the martini didn't help.

Saturday morning I got my hair done. A cut and some highlights. Love going to the hair dresser. She just put some different shades of brown and I got my hair cut, shorter. I love it!!

I did a little photo shoot, tons of fun!! Then Connie came over and we went out to Langley which is about a 30 to 45 minute drive from my place. Did some shopping. We went to two scrap stores, Michaels, Starbucks and Chapters. Got some scrap goodies, more stuff to play with. Had a chai latte and a chocolate cupcake at Starbucks, yummy!! And got two new books to read. I'm really enjoying reading again!!

The movie looks so good, and so I want to read the book before I see the movie!!

I have been eyeing this one for awhile...I have heard such good things about this book.

Just finished reading the Kite Runner, loved it so good!! Don't know if I want to see the movie though. Now I am reading Shopaholic and Baby, just love that series. Makes me laugh!!

So, after shopping (sorry I got off topic) we went back to my place packed up some scrappy goodies and went back to Connie's place. Her hubby made us some daiquiris..yummy!! We had some Greek food, watched Breakfast at Tiffany's (love that movie), by the time we were done with dinner and almost finished watching the movie we were both dead energy left. So, I went home!! We had so much fun together, we're planning a shopping day across the border over Spring Break..super excited. My goal is to not go to the scrap store until then, about a month...I think I can do it!!

Sunday was rather quiet. Jared had a soccer game in North Vancouver, a fair drive so he left at about 3:30pm and I went and got some pictures developed...we are still working on buying our photo printer..cannot wait for that!! Came home and made myself some Cafe and I began to work on my scrap space and the area surrounding, I cleaned and reorganized. you can now see the floor and I got rid of some stuff. It's not too bad. I think I will need a trip to Ikea soon though maybe for a new desk and more storage containers. But it's clean so, I'm glad. I am going to tackle my patterned paper basket next and reorganize that. Did manage to do a page this is for
OLW Love how it turned out, Jared and I way back when.

Never posted these..from last weekend I think...

By the time I was done organizing and cleaning, I was hungry so I had some macaroni and cheese, love the white cheddar flavour..YUM!! I crashed on the couch, did some knitting and Jared made it home in time for Brothers and Sisters, love that show.

I hope everyone had a good weekend too!! This week is busy, I have class on Saturday have to prepare for that, and parent-teacher conferences are next to prepare for that. I will be back soon because I was tagged by the fabulous
Brandy will have to post that up soon!! Have a good week!!

Happy Love Day!!

Hope your day is sweet!!

Friday, February 08, 2008


So, I'm here still. After my last post I bascially got really sick and was home for the rest of the week. No school, just me lying in bed sleeping all day and then moving to the couch and back to the bed. Saw the doctor and I got some antibiotics, feeling better just have this really bad cough left. But I put on Vicks Vaporub before I go to bed and it totally puts me to sleep. The smell reminds me of when I was little and my mom used to put it on me when I was sick.

The rest of this week has been all about playing catch up with life. Kind of sucks but we are back on track so that's good.

Super excited that today is Friday. I am going with my sister, mom and my sister's soon to be in laws across the border for some shopping. We are going wedding dress shopping first and then doing a little more shopping of other kinds after. I am excited!! I hope I find some good finds..on the hunt for some new clothes..maybe swing by at some scrappy stores we shall see. If not will have to save that for when I go with Connie. Have to get up early not, looking forward to that. Oh well!!

Hope everyone has a good weekend!!
