Really, Deb. Really?

It's not like I haven't been having fun or crafting. I have stuff to share. I don't know why I don't force myself to sit down and blog more often.

We've settled into spring here the past few weeks. The kids had spring vacation last week. Lots of play dates and sleepovers with friends.
Activities have started back up.
Soccer and baseball practices. Opening day was today.
Play practices.
Time to figure out summer camp and other activities.
Heck, even fall activities. Sign ups for soccer and football started this week.
ACK! It's a kick in the pants to try to stay organized.

Lately, I've felt born again in scrapbooking. I've had tons of ideas swirling in my brain and can't wait to get them translated into projects.

Here are some pages that I made for challenges over at Timeless Daydreams.

This is my first 6x12 layout. That's me, in Kindergarten. I remember wearing that outfit. It was kinda groovy with a vest. And my hair was curly from rollers my mom put in my hair the night before. My bangs are crooked since Mom trimmed them in the bathroom. These are some of the little things I remember from that time in my life, and I tucked them into the Maya Road Kraft envie. Love them. Dug into my Sassafrass stash for this page. Much of
their stuff just has a 70s vibe for me.

Then I dug into my Webster's Pages and Prima stash to make this page.
Every now and again, it is fun to just do a girlie page, with flowers and fluff. :0)

Here are some pics from the weekend:

Have a great day!

I discovered this today and decided it would be a great way to jump back into blogging...

The Simple Women's Daybook

so here are my entries...


Outside my window... is my vegetable garden to be. I spent some time raking it out this week, while Tommy and Harley played in the yard.

I am thinking... I need to take more pictures.

I am thankful for...getting holiday time tonight. It's goodto be home with my family at night. We played Uno and Monopoly together. It was fun!

From the kitchen... I want to make banana bread this week.

I am wearing... pajamas, fuzzy socks and a hoodie.

I am creating... just finished a layout for the March Madness competition at Timeless Daydreams.

I am going... to buy a bathroom scale this week.

I am reading... just started A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick.

I am hoping...that my brother-in-law, John (who underwent cancer surgery this week), will heal quickly and completely.

I am hearing... the radio in the kitchen. I love to have music on while I scrap.

Around the house...I'm trying to get rid of some of the clutter. Where did all this stuff come from, anyway?

One of my favorite things... this week is vanilla ice cream. The real deal. With just a hint of chocolate sauce.

A few plans for the rest of the week... Getting the cold weather clothes switched out for the warm weather ones and spend time with the kids who are on their April vacation this week.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
