Almost October

Can hardly believe how fast this month has flown by.
I realize I probably make these statements fairly often... something I feel like I can hardly help.
I wonder how fast time will fly by when I'm 60, or even 80? Will I ::blink:: and it'll be Tuesday? ::Blink:: again, and it's two weeks past last humpday? ::Blink:: Christmas? Crazy!

Oh, and if any of you have received an email from my hotmail address.. I can assure you I did not send it! Some damn spammer has grabbed my account somehow. Asses. I'm going to change my email password hoping that it won't happen again. Evidently they sent an email to every person listed in my flipping hotmail account. There are addresses in there that are at least 3 years old. AND with people *I* don't associate with anymore too. *whine* I KNEW I should have deleted those contacts last month.... now I know why it was bugging me to do so... maybe I will listen to that voice in my head more often now too!

~i apologize for the spam though, I had no control over sending it, and hope you know I would never spam you intentionally!~

In other news, I got my October Daily Grind kit from The Scrapping Spot a few days ago. Monday? I think so. Such an easy kit to work with. Love every inch of it!

Papers are from Fancy Pants The Daily Grind Line (all papers are double sided). 1 - Floral Ledger Transparency, 1 - DG Strips, 1 - Sparkle, 1 - Office Space, 1 - Notebook Doodles, 1 - Vacation (not pictured), 2 - Bazzill Sea Salt, 2 - Bazzill Hayley, 1 - Thickers Smoothie, Black, 1 - Sentiments Rub-on, 1 Burlap Fabric, 1 yd. printed Ribbon, 1 yd.

There is also another Fancy Pants kit called All Fall... it's just as beautiful as the one above.

I think I'll be sending hubby in the attic this weekend for Autumn/Halloween decorations. The weather should be perfect for webbing up the trees and stuff. I can't wait!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend if I don't update tomorrow ;)

new halloween paper

It's finally cooling off in the mornings, and the sun is setting sooner. FALL is right around the corner.. I'm stoked. I usually get re-energized in Autumn. All the crisp smells of the season. The kids love playing outside for a few minutes after sissy and daddy leave for work.
in the hay

look @ me
so it's blurry.. i'll still scrap it! Ü

and lazy kitty

YAY! I finally was able to go out and get some Halloween paper. I bought a K&Co halloween pad. Had a 50% off coupon, so I saved $6. Had hubby with me too, so I made him buy some UTEE for me with his coupon. I've never played with it before, so I'm not sure all I can do with it. I'm interested in creating layers and stamping in it.. and maybe crackling it too.

I have an idea for a Halloween project... I think I'll be using this idea for TSS this month. You'll have to check out their newsletter for October iffin ya wanna see it.

Oh yeah, Rusty Pickle rocks! Finally got my candyland line in... it's SO much flipping fun to use. The bright colors and design are scrumdiddlyumptious! I'd show you what I've done with it, but it's for this ONE THING that's a secret. Don't worry, I'll post more about it in the weeks to come... like 3 weeks at the latest? ;-)

Here's a completed photo of all 20 skele's I made. I'm thinking about putting three in my etsy shop and getting that going. I'm just so unsure what to charge for things... if it's worth the effort of putting them in the store... I'll never know until I try, I know that. ;)

Time to put the little ones in bed..

eeks, 3 weeks?!

Yeah, its been that long since I've updated.
What have I done in the last 3 weeks.

Well, I rented Katelyn's trumpet for band. It's a comforting sound to hear her in her room practicing 30 minutes a day. She's improved so much in one week!

I read 15 books, including the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer. I think I want to read it again. I can't wait for the movie in November!

Oooh, played with the September kits from The Scrapping Spot.
Both of them are Pink Paislee this month.
I used Pop Fashion on these, along with the toppers!

fashion statement

You can see the rest on my flickr photo stream HERE

I cleaned up and organized the basement.
Celebrated Doug's 35th birthday
make a wish

pulled myself out of a depression

Played 5 weeks of Tally Olympics issuing challenges.. total fun yet, hard as heck!

Realized I may need a new camcorder.. darn it! Says something about condensation, yet it's not been outside or got wet.. humidity? hmm

Well, it feels good to catch up a smidge....

oh, I got kicked out of the Treasure challenge week 4.. just two weeks away from winning. The talent there was outta this world good. The ladies that won, surely deserved it, such beautiful work!

To my ladies in TX, stay safe!
I'll be thinking of you!
