Well, we made it through the holidays . . . almost . . heading over to my parents tomorrow to open presents (again!). We didn't get a chance to see them on Christmas, so we're going over for the night tomorrow. The boys are very excited . . .they love it anytime they can take a ferry ride to Nana and Papa's!

Hope everyone had a great holiday. I just got some new CTMH product in the mail and have more coming next week . . . getting very ansy to PLAY!! Hopefully I'll get a chance to get some stuff together and get it posted here next week . . so STAY TUNED!

Meanwhile, take your time . . view my previous posts, post a comment and enjoy my music playlist! It's my favorite part of my blog! I'll log on and minimize my blog while I surf other sites just so I can hear the music! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Here's to great inspiration in 2008!

We're dreaming of a WHITE CHRISTMAS

Well, it doesn't look like we'll be getting any snow for Christmas this year. Forecast calls for RAIN . . surprise, surprise! But these pictures of the boys playing in the snow a few weeks ago sure looks nice. Maybe I'll just make one of these my screensaver and we can look at it on Christmas Day! Things are getting pretty hectic around here as we near the big day, so if I don't make it back before the 25th, Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Call me crazy . . no, just nostalgic!!

Ok . . so if you are lucky enough to have your speakers on and can hear my music list play as you are reading through my blog, you may have the privilege to hear "Wake me up before you go-go . . . " You know . . George Michael (WHAM) "jitterbug . . jitterbug . . " LOL!!!

I just had to put this on my playlist because everytime I hear this song it takes me back to my college days at the University of Alaksa, Fairbanks. It reminds me of dear friends who have fallen out of touch . . . and it makes me smile EVERYTIME I hear it . . no matter where I am or what I'm doing. Honestly, when the song starts I can see my old dorm room, remember walking down the hallway . . . it's amazing what music can do! So, if you snicker when you hear "jitterbug" and cringe . . . just know that I'm smiling all the way back to 1986!! Ha ha ha ha!!

I don't know what got into me . . !?!?

In the last 2 nights, I have completed (well, almost completed . . . I still need to journal on 2 of them and am waiting for supplies that should be here within the next couple of days) 3 single page layouts and one double page layout. I don't know what got into me! So, I thought I'd share my work . . . all the layouts are CTMH. I haven't received any of my new stuff yet (new Spring Idea Book has some GREAT new products - my first new order will be here tomorrow!!).

These photos DID NOT turn out very good, but I want to get these up . . so I'll try to retake them in the morning when the light is better. My poor camera might be the problem too . . . it's been DROPPED (oops!) several times!!

Sorry the photos are so bad. Bummer . . .usually my camera takes better pictures. Maybe they'll look better in the morning light and I'll try again!

If you like what you see, please leave me a note. It's nice to hear comments from friends and fellow scrappers! Hope you enjoy the pages as much as I do.

It's been a while . . .

It's been a while since I've posted anything. I was checking out other blogs today and most of them are updated so regularly . . . makes me think maybe I should let this one go, but, what the heck. Doesn't cost me anything and as long as I can remember my password (took my 2 hours today to finally get it right!!!) I might as well keep coming back.

I have been doing some holiday cards and have also made a couple of other projects lately. I'll try to photo and post them later today.

Our weather has been FRIGHTFUL here on the Olympic Peninsula. Not so bad in Port Angeles, but all around us was hit pretty severely. Lots of places just now starting to dry out . . flood waters receding . . yikes . .and it's not even WINTER yet!! The joys of winter in the Pacific Northwest!

More later . .I PROMISE!! :-)
