One a Day...

No, I don't mean vitamins! I'm talking about one layout posted on my website a day. Just one new layout to entice the throngs of women out there looking to make their scrapbooking easier with pre-made pages! That's the goal for this week. Do you know what I'm talking about?

Where oh where have I been???

Once in a lifetime does one get the opportunity to plan and do something big to commemorate a special occasion! My darling husband (DH) started planning our 25th wedding anniversary trip early last year, involving my friends, a travel agent, and a special savings account. Well, let me tell you THE TRIP ROCKED!! Though it got off to a rocky start (missing suitcase on the cruise portion, boohoo) it quickly became the trip of a lifetime! I'm a notoriously bad traveler - motion sickness- but managed, with help, not to lose my cookies on the ship. Then our eastern Caribbean week was spent drinking too much rum, hanging in the clear blue ocean, and sightseeing galore. 20 days away from home, woo hoo!!
But what I really want to tell you is that I had the coolest inspiration for scrapbooking EVER while out of the country. LOVED the different culture, colors, and food. Really dug the business signs, cool clothing, weird food, and driving on the wrong side of the road. I made a ton of sketches in my little notebook; like a new tile pattern that would make excellent background paper, and a very avant garde use of circles I saw on some drapery. Studio, here I come!! I'm going back to work, and no one can stop me!! I'm prepared to make layouts that will wow you, and thrill you! Please join me on my journey at I'm looking forward to the creative juices flowing once again! :)

I've gone a little crazy, but...

You wonder why my mind thinks like it does. For example, this morning I knew I had to work and make new layouts. But, I didn't want to, I really wanted to sit on the couch and eat bon bons (My husband's view of my world.) So I decided that at a specific time on the clock, I would get up and go work. That time passed. What to do, what to do? I decided alarm clocks work for me every morning, so why not utilize them now? So, I set the alarm on my Iphone (a blaring & annoying fire-alarm type noise) then I set the alarm next to my bed (God help me if I don't remember to set it back tonight) and I even set the one on my husband's side. Watched a little more t.v. The big laugh here, is that even tho they were all set to the very same time, they didnt go off together! However, it DID get me up, it DID make me climb those stairs, and it DID get my butt in gear after all. Okay folks, feel free to use my methods of madness! It worked, didn't it? Do you know what I'm talking about?
p.s. apologies for skipping my blog in March - best month for the website so far, House warming party, and general busy-ness. Thanks for your emails!

Here comes the Queen!

Yes, Yes, Yes! I am teaching a class with 17 people in it tomorrow! It's a basic Cricut 101 class; and I'm looking forward to getting on my velvet robe, my crown, and parading into the classroom to an Olde English Trumpet Voluntary where I will preside over the training of my loyal subjects! Sounds like JOY to me! Here's the kicker... these ladies don't know it yet, but hopefully, some of them will become my friends real soon. That's right, I'm on the search for new friends who scrapbook! Miss the gals from Tuesday Group in Vista CA, so I'm just gonna get new ones. Simple? No. But I am so excited I can hardly stand it. I'm going to be nice to everyone and see what happens! Please send me good MoJo and hopefully I will have great big success!Do you know what I'm talking about?

When you are faced with LEMONS...

Well of COURSE you make lemonade!!! But I don't mean the kind you drink, I mean the color lemon yellow. Sometimes I take a piece of cardstock and look at it very closely. This morning I picked up a yellow piece and the first thing that came to mind was lemons. Well I sat right down at my studio desk and I began to create the most gorgeous lemon-y yellow layout with nothing but lemons in mind!! I chose the title "Pucker Up" because it went with lemons... and I thought, gee, candid shots of a couple kissing each other would be perfect! So you see, you can scrap BACKWARDS if you want. Who cares if you have photos that go on it yet... you just may, one day soon! Don't be afraid to let a creative idea take you where it wants to go. Do you know what I am talking about?

Wanting to be published...

Yes my pages have been published before. But not for a least 2 years! I haven't submitted anything at all, so shocking! I think it's because I have been focusing on other things in my scrapbooking world. But that's okay, never fear, because I have made a New Year's Resolution! That's right, I am going to submit for publication! I will keep you posted, but plan on hearing from me very soon on this issue! I hope to get a spread published by August 2001. It's a goal! What words of wisdom do you have for me now? Would love to hear what you think of my new goal. Do you know what I'm talking about?
