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.
