Not enough hours in the day...

I've been busy taking inventory of my surroundings lately. Seems as if a spring cleaning bug has bitten my butt. I'm a bit of a pack rat and am trying to simplify and declutter our surroundings these days.

I've been watching episodes of Clean House with the kids lately. We are astonished by the conditions people live in. There are some serious hoarders out there!! Then there was a garage sale at my local scrapbook store. I started trying to figure out what I'd be willing to part with. Well, I ran out of time and didn't get any of my stuff there to sell. I can't believe the amount of product I have. Or rather, forgot I had. I made a promise to myself to really start using up my supply stash.

I did go to the tag sale, however and was able to pick up some stuff that I was excited about.
While I was there, I browsed the new goodies too, and ended up getting these buttons in pink, red. orange and green. Oh how I love them!

I also picked up a few more sheets of BG Origins papers. Loving greens and yellows lately.

Some excitement at out house this weekend - Tommy lost his first tooth!

Not feeling it lately

So I haven't been in the scrappy frame of mind lately. Not that I don't spend time drooling over pages and window shopping for hundreds of dollars of new supplies. That part is just fine. It's my creative mojo that has gone on hiatus for a while.
I get into these funks every so often - feeling like I can't create anything to live up to the ideas spinning around my brain. I have 3 unfinished pages and a mini album waiting to be completed. It's frustrating, but when I get this way, I just roll with it. I decided, as a result, to not bother applying for any of the amazing manufacturer DT calls that were posted the past few weeks. Going to focus instead, on creating for fun and submitting to some page calls.

I've been sick the past week. I guess it was some icky viral deal - sore throat, fever, runny nose, debilitating headache. Coming out of it, though, just in time to work the weekend again.

Spring is around the corner. You wouldn't know it for the amount of snow we have in our yard here. The kids had 3 snow days out of the past 8 school days.
Here are a few pictures of the fun:

Isn't that snow hippo cute? Colin cracks me up with his creativity.

Well, tomorrow is another day, and I 'm hoping to have something completed to share here.
Have a good one!
