Trying to find balance…

Sep 6, 2008

Gosh, I so stink at this blogging. I am trying but right now I have too many pots boiling over at once. I was doing great until hurrican Gustav decided to give the gulf coast a little visit. Labor day weekend I had my mom, dad and their bird, sister, BIL their 4 kids & dog, my MIL, FIL and their dog staying at our house. So throw in our family and our 3 dogs it was a bit tight. It was quite a visit. Mind you we live in a one story, 4 bedroom 2 bath house and one bedroom is DH’s office and one bedroom is my scraproom. So we had air beds all over and coolers lined up in the kitchen. It was crazy. Everyone left Tuesday and now are watching hurricane Ike. So Tuesday I washed and cleaned and Wednesday I was dragging and did absolutely nothing.

So this brings me to Thursday and Friday… well I am happy to say I will be teaching classes at one of Rollie Stillings events “Scrappin Away Vacations”  January 15-19. This will be her 5th anniversary and man does she have some fun things planned… make-n-takes, art auction for a charity, raffles and so much more. The event opens for registration Sept. 15th. She is only taking the first 175 reservations and then it is sold out. Rollie will post the classes Oct. 1st, which brings me back to Thursday and Friday… I have been working on creating a super cute class project for this event.

And how ironic… I got this award from Wendy Vecchi last week and then a few days ago from Celeste Smith. I guess they like my blog even though I am a bad blogger.

So here are the rules:

  1. The winner puts the logo on their blog.
  2. Then link the person you received the “I Love Your Blog” award from.
  3. Nominate at 6 other blogs.
  4. Then put links to those blogs on your blog.
  5. Then leave a message on the blogs of the people you nominated.

So here are my nominations in no particular order.

Santa Claus: Because I still believe.

Sande Krieger: I love her style, she makes me want to try digi so badly and her photography is out of this world.

Linda Albrecht: Her attention to detail is incredible and her altered projects are too cute for words.

My Crafty Life: Neat tutorials and templates

Jenny at Everyday is a Holiday: Love her paintings and seeing all her vintage finds.

Caroline Lau: Always discovers some neat technique for sheers or chipboard.

Now I am off to finish up my class project and work on some tutorials for next week. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
