All Good Stash Deserves to be Loved

I'm on a scrappin bender this week. I got 3 pages done yesterday and am already up to my elbows in 4 others. Still need to journal 2 of these I'm sharing, but I wanted to get them photographed before The Storm of All Storms hits.

I used to ALWAYS scrap with a little stash thrown in. I haven't been doing that recently, so I jumped back into that with the stuff I've been doing this week. You'll find "old" Creative Cafe, Sass and Scenic Route paper today. As well as embellies from Love Elsie and Karen Foster. I challenge you to see how far back in your goodies you can go and "Love Your Stash".

Hope you enjoy your weekend and you get some time to get your scrap on.

Strep Throat(s), Sinus Infections, and Vomitting, Oh My!

Nuff said.

My scrappy box of goodies for January and February has arrived. I'll be creating with EIGHT lines for Croppin Paradise in the next 2 months!! Can.not.wait to get this house healthy, so I can get my scrap on.

In the meanwhile, I did squeeze a little ME time in between all the germies. I played with the Studio Calico January kit and also SC's Homefront line (again)...

Mom's Got a Latte Do Today

Just ordered all of my goodies from Croppin Paradise for the next 2 months. They do their kits for their Design Team a bit differently. I get to pick what I want. It's kinda like I make up my own kits each and every month. So, so much fun! I've got both of Basic Grey's newest lines coming. Plus, I'll be playing with some Cosmo Cricket. A couple of my favorite lines ever! Stay tuned for that by the end of the month!!

Now onto the Studio Calico. When they announced their first ever retail line, I pre-ordered all of it as fast as I could! THEN, it was time for me to switch up my kit clubs and I HAD to sub to Studio Calico. So, both packages arrived this month, and I've been a scrappin fool. Even threw in a little stash. You know how I like that.

Later Gator...

Another Red Letter Week

So Donk has begun his work ups in preparation for deploying in March. He left on Saturday for sunny & warm (insert sarcastic snicker here) Fallon, NV. Me, here on the homefront, is already caring for my 3rd sick kid. NO, seriously. AND, that does not count Sullivan pulling the dresser down on top of him this morning. It's a good thing he and Sophia had recently broken 2 of the 3 drawers, otherwise he may have been seriously hurt when I lifted the dresser off of his back. Small blessings, huh? That's me, a "glass half full" kinda girl, HAHAHAHA!
The nap thing is seriously becoming a thing of the past. So, my days really are solely consisting of 14 straight hours of pulling the Twinnies out from under the dining room table (their Secret Hideout of choice) with whatever purloined goods they've procured clenched in Sassy's super-duper clenched fist. These treasured items have included yogurt (being eaten with a nutcracker cheese spreader), Lysol Anywhere Hard Surface Spray (they can open babylocks; Sassy ruined a brand-new outfit), and of course, any errant videogame/controller/etc. left out by the Bigs.
So, after said 14 hours of chasing Frick & Frack... I mean blessed time bonding with my youngest, I'm not getting to scrap much due to the couch calling my name. But, I do have a few things to share.
This first one was done with a Becky Fleck sketch for a Guest Design Team gig. We shall see...
This next one is a card I made for DH. I was doing a little Tips for Tools write-up for the AAS blog. I love my new Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. Check out the butterfly wings and the chipboard heart...

Be back in a few hours with some stuff using Studio Calico's January kit AND their new Homefront line available at a store near you. Or your favorite online retailer. Have to get some diet Coke to survive another day with my sick brood. TTFN.

Momma's Gotta Brand New Bag

I told you I had some new stuff up my sleeve for the New Year. I'm happy to share that I have a new home for 2010...

The linky is over on the right in my sidebar. They have a fantastic store filled with great product that I can not wait to start playing with. The Croppin Paradise Girls are real nice & friendly and we're going to have a ton of fun!! I hope you'll check them out. I'm anxious to get my first box and start creating. You know I'll share here. Maybe even some sneakies. Shh. Don't tell.

I've got some other stuff in the works, but until I can share...

Hope your New Year is starting off with a bang...
