Whoooosh! That's the sound time makes when it flies by. Wow. December. Already. Seriously? Seriously!

I have been incredibly busy running the house and tending to my girls while Terry works like a dog to bring home the bacon.

I did have time to slip out last Sunday to take a Scrapbooking class. It was based on Ali Edwards' 25 Days of December or December Daily album. I just LOVE how it turned out and tomorrow I'm going to attempt to take some pics of it and post them here. I also need to actually put stuff IN the book....the last two days have been a whirlwind.

For now, I have a date with my pillow and my television converter.

I found this fabulous idea while clicking around in webland. I got there from here. I find such inspiring things while just aimlessly clicking. Of course, some days this is just too great a way to procrastinate.

Want to play? Here are the rules....copied directly from Nonsuch book blog cause I reaaaaally should be in the shower and getting ready to go to the Pumpkin Patch. I hope that's okay.

Are you ready to Pay It Forward??? Here are the rules:

The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and pay it forward.

This is how it works: I agree to send something fun, cute, & nice to the first three blog owners who post a comment on this entry. In turn, those three will post this information and pick three people they want to send something to and on goes the giving!

If you are interested in participating, be one of the first three blog owners to leave a comment! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found. Just a gift that will make the person smile and really brighten their day.

Again, if you'd like to join in be one of the first THREE people to leave me a comment with your email on this
particular post. You have to PROMISE that you will then post about this on your blog, link to me, and then send something to the first three people who sign up to play along through your blog. I hope people like this idea. It's a small way to bring a smile to someone's face and little thank you to all who are faithful readers and wonderful web friends!!!

Wow. What an incredible week. No, I haven't posted any of my "week in the life" pictures here. Simply because I don't know how yet. ;) But I have been very diligent about taking my camera everywhere and taking tons of pictures. I can't wait to put it all together. Thanks so much, Ali, for doing this right alongside all of us this week.

I can't even tell you how much it's opened my eyes. It didn't just show me "my life right now", it showed me what to cherish, but also what I'd like to change. I realized I've been a bit insular in the last year and don't get out a ton socially. I'd like to change that. It also opened my eyes wide to see my surroundings, my home, and what I like and what I don't like so much. And I've already begun to make some baby steps toward sprucing up what I'm not liking.

September 29th, 2008

Ack. Really? Easter? Wow. That's kind of......pathetic. Although I did have a fantastic summer so I can just say I was busy living.

Anyway, I've signed on to do the Week in the Life project over at Ali Edwards' blog. It's only Monday, but so far I'm doing okay....let's see how it goes.

Easter weekend

Well, as usual I got all excited about starting something new and then got bored fairly quickly. I suppose it is because I don't know how to make the blog look the way I want to without investing some time and my time is quite precious. I have a ton of other things that occupy my time and I often feel scattered trying to decide what to use the time doing and then I end up doing nothing but sitting here surfing and looking at the blogs of other, far more creative people and thinking of projects to do.

What I need to do is start making myself get down to business and create. One could literally spend hours/days/months looking at the wonderful creations of others and never get their own things done. Or even started.

The girls are wonderful. Just wonderful. Daily I feel guilt that I am not documenting every second of their lives before they move on to the next stage and the memory slips away. Already Chloƫ is becoming a little girl and all traces of baby are being erased. It makes me gleeful because she is becoming so much fun. But it also makes me sad. Is this only a mothers conundrum, or does Terry feel the same?

My little monkeys

A woman on a board I post on made this for me for Valentines Day and I was so happy with it. I was actually on the ball enough to have it printed, in envelopes and mailed in time for Valentines Day!!
I'm really in to trees right now in art work that I'm drawn to, so as soon as I saw this as one of her design choices I knew I wanted it. I'm not sure if other people find a tree as inspiring. My mom wanted to know what the tree was for...

Well, colour me confused!

Oh, boy. This is going to take a while to figure out now isn't it? Hmmm, has this just become yet another reason to avoid creating?

Testing, testing, one, two, three....

I have been thinking about starting a blog for ages now, so I'm just going to jump in with both feet and see where it takes me.
