My Very First Laptop

Sunday, June 6th, 2010


Please welcome my very first laptop to the world! 😉 I’ve wanted one forever and finally had a way to justify it. We seperated my office supplies from my scrapbooking space in our new home, but I still need the internet to stay connected to the world while I scrapbook. So we picked out this adorable, 11.6 inch ThinkPad in red. It’s a fabulous machine and doesn’t take up very much of my scrapbook desk space! Today we accesorized with a cute little red mouse for editing photos more easily.

Pictures of my new scrapbook space coming soon. I still need to get some layouts logged and tidy it up in here!

Updates!

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

We finally moved into the new townhome we purchased. It feels like it’s been a seriously long and drawn out process. The last of the boxes are getting unpacked and I’m starting to find a few spare moments to scrapbook again. I still have a few layouts done from before that I will be posting soon.

Hopefully I can get some good catching up done before the baby arrives! We’re about a month out from my due date now.

I still exist…

I have been pretty busy with life events and vacationing lately, but I do have a bunch more layouts completed. I will get those posted once I’m home and unpacked. 😉

An amazing weekend!

Monday, February 1st, 2010


I just got back from a wonderful weekend scrap and spa retreat in Sacramento at Green Tangerines.

I joined about 30 other women in the workspace at GT. We scrapped and chatted and helped each other from 5 pm Friday until 5 pm Sunday. Our only breaks were to eat, sleep or get pampered – a manicure, pedicure and an hour long massage. We also had challenges and raffle prizes completing the fabulous experience.

I finished 10 layouts (16 pages total) which I will photograph and post as soon as possible.

I really hope I can attend again next year!

Entryway Display

This is our new display in the entryway to our apartment.

Details: The dark corkboards on the sides are from Michael’s. “Home” metal sign is from Marshall’s. Middle frame is the Everyday Display by Creative Memories. And I also got the Day to Day pack to use on the display. Thanks Marianne!

View from the side of the bed back toward the door:
Pictures of our redone bedroom (sorry, we have crappy lighting in there still). The corner of the room that I’m not showing is currently a mess. It will eventually be the mini nursery.
Close up of the artwork over the bed can be seen here.

Art Project

Thursday, January 7th, 2010



Our bedroom has been lacking in decoration for a while. I’ve been getting ready to move the furniture around and had this exciting idea for artwork that involved mostly items I already owned. I picked up a canvas frame from Michael’s and went to town!

I’ll try to add a post once the furniture is moved and this piece is hung (over the bed).
Products: Tapestry fabrics. Patterned ribbons are by DCWV All Dressed Up. Then I used some random flowers and buttons from my scrapbooking stash.

I’m back!

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

After a long hiatus for the extended holiday season, I’m back and scrapbooking again.

I’ve been a little distracted… I’m PREGNANT! But now I have even more motivation to get caught up on my scrapbooking before the little one arrives in June. =)
This month should be lots of fun. Hubby and I will find out the gender of our baby and I’m going on a 3 day scrapbooking retreat at Green Tangerines.
Anyway… on to my new layouts to share…
