Ugh. I was doing so well at posting to my blog everyday. Work just gets in the way every damn time. I'm working 4 days this week! Yeah, I know, OMG. Hey, I'm not use to that kind of work week, give me a break! ;)
I can't post anything crafty, 'cause I've not done anything. Why? Work. (It all comes down to that nasty little 4 letter word.) I still have 11 Christmas Card planners to make and 22 more 6x6 pages to do before I leave in 13 days. Wow....13 days. Doesn't seem real. When am I going to get this crap done?!
I spent 3 hours helping set up for a yard sale tonite. Guess what? I'm doing it again tomorrow, too. All for the yard sale I'm having with other people on Saturday. The only reason is so that I have spending $$ in Salt Lake City. Man, I better make enough to make sweating my arse off worth it. This is my second in one month. I hate having one once a year, let alone 2 in one month. Dang it, if it weren't for needing that extra spending money. And, holy mother of gawd, it's hot. I just about jumped in the swimming pool tonite clothes and all.
Me, Steve, Myra and Shelley went to Holiday World on Wednesday. Talk about busy. The water park was crammed. There was a freaking line for the lazy river! Both of them! Insane! We rode a couple rides and the lines weren't too bad....because everyone was in the flippin' water park!! We had a pretty good time, even if I did almost drown in the Bahari wave pool. We spent most of our time in the lazy river. Now that is relaxing. I could spend all day there.
Got a new bike!! An '09 Trek Navigator 2.0 and it's p-r-e-t-t-y!! I love it! Now to get ready for the big 20 mile bike ride Sunday, Aug. 3. Oh, yeah, you heard me right. Me, a bike, and 20 freaking miles. Wish me luck on that.
Also, got a new phone! We are officially a home with no land lines, cell phones only. Our home phone number stayed the same, it's just on a cell now. My cell number stayed the same, too. Steve now has his own cell and a new number. Kinda weird. Oh, but back to my new phone....it's purty. An LG Black Cherry Chocolate. Because this one plays mp3's, I had to relinquish my beloved iPod over to Steve. I was keeping myself entertained on the drive into town this evening. I have something on my phone that ID's songs by putting it up to the speaker for about 10 seconds! It then ID's it. Then, if you want it as a ring tone, it finds it for you automatically in the ring tone application. You gotta pay for it, of course, but how cool is that?! Amazing! Or, maybe I'm just easily amused. Either way, you gotta admit that that's pretty cool.
Well, I need to get off here. It's late, and guess who has to work tomorrow, for the 4th day this week? Yep, moi. ;)
Oh, Nicole, I read your blog and thanks for the "award"! I'll have to post my answer to that or whatever at a later date...like next week. When I only work my normal 3 days! ROFL!

A card I did several months ago, but I don't think I posted on here. If I did, and you remember it, so sorry. Just enjoy it again! LOL! I did this card based on a sketch by Lucy Chesna from her sketch blog (link on the side of my blog under "It's All About the Sketches!") and I used what little leftovers of pattern paper I had from the December 2007 BYOM kit and some leftover embellies I had from a Scrap-Tastic kit and a SU stamp in the corner! TFL!
Oh, and if you haven't noticed, I'm trying to post to my blog at least once a day this month! Nicole introduced me to a way to post on my blog without having to log in everyday! GENIUS! I'll try to post something scrappy everyday, but I just don't think that's going to be possible. But, I like pictures, so hopefully, I'll have at least a photo to accompany my posts! Wish me luck!

Here's the other card front I'm making to swap at convention! Told ya I like Ruby Red and Cameo Coral together! ;) I used the 5 petal flower, ticket corner and 2 sizes of star punches that SU has + 2 different stamp sets....Independence Day and ?? (it's the birthday set that has a candle in it....where's Tiffany when I need her?! Oh, yeah...Florida!! Must be nice!)
Missin' my Kenna Wee this week. She's staying several days with Kasara and Asher. I know she's having fun playing with Asher and hanging out and helping Aunt Kasara, but I miss her when she's gone! I'll be picking her up Thursday after I get off of work. Oh, geesh, you should've seen the fits Mara and Micah were throwing because McKenna got to stay with Kasara. Horrible. I made it up to them with a Taco drink and choco chip cookies. :)

Here's one of the card fronts I'm making to swap at convention at the end of the month...I'm stuck on the Ruby Red and Cameo Coral together. My other card front uses the same colors!
Just spent the last two days back home in Mt. Carmel helping Kristi edit the wedding video we took last month. Wow, what a lot of work and we still have a ton of editing left to do. But, it's kind of fun when we get going on it. Confusing, but fun.
Chatterbox design team finalists were announced. Not that I thought I had a chance in hell, but still, a girl can dream. Big surprise, though, all the normal names in the industry were on there. Bitter, party of one, please! LOL!! I can't help it, though. It just reminds me of why I haven't tried submitting anything in a long, long, long time. When I start to submit to things like that, I always seem to lose sight of why I really scrapbook...for me, for my girls', for future family. It's really easy to get wrapped up in trying to make a name for yourself. Ok, rant over. :)
Tiffany, I hope you're having fun in Florida! Say "HI" to Mickey for me! Nicole, hope your having a fun, relaxing time with family! I miss my BFF's!
Time to go pick Mara up from volleyball camp! Later!
