It's been a LONG time...

I got SO lazy about updating my blog. It's not even that I've been super busy...just super lazy. The kids got done with school and we are about half way done with summer vaca. Mattie will be a sophmore next year and V will be a 4th grader. How times flies. It's been a pretty uneventful summer. Probably not taking any kind of vaca again since Steve can't get the time off from work. So the kids and I have been doing the movies quite a bit...the free ones and then we do movies as a family on the weekends...not free ones;) Visit my mom and Lal a lot, but that's about it.

I'm still going to the gym about 4 times and week and putting in some workouts here at home too when I get the chance. I hadn't been able to lose any more weight after the intial 20 lbs that I lost, but just recently, I dropped about 4, so I'm happy about that. Just REALLY need to watch what I eat...

We are also in the middle of planning our 20 year high school reunion. So meetings and trying to collect payments...busy, busy. We just had a "meeting" yesterday, but only two people showed up besides me, Lal and Laura, but it was still a lot of fun catching up and laughing a whole lot:)

We will be starting back to school shopping this weekend. I've pretty much got all the school supplies we need with the exception of like 2 or 3 small items. It really does pay off to stock up when they clearance this stuff. This is the second yr and I haven't really had to buy school supplies.

Mattie turned 16 the beginning of this month. Can hardly believe it. V will be turning 10 almost as soon as school starts. I feel so old:(

I have been trying to keep up with the scrapping. Been working on different things here and there. I have drastically cut down on my shopping...seriously...been saving myself quite a bit of $$$ ;)

I can't upload every single project I've done since I blogged last, but I will update with a few of the lastest things.
I've been on an Alice in Wonderland kick lately;) These are just a few of the things I've made using the theme. I've done some cards and quite a few different type tags. I am so loving the new Graphic 45 line. I just picked up some at 911 the other day and can't wait to use it. Jennie is doing a mini book class with the line and her book is AWESOME!!! I so want to do this class.

Just a card I made using one of my Tim Holtz dies. I am loving these dies and just starting to explore their possibilites. I can't wait for some of his new CHA release Alterations especially the tag one!!!

Going to try REALLY hard to remember I still have this thing here and update more often. Summer will be over before you know it and I'll be back to my regular schedule;) More soon...hopfeully;)

Hi Marcy. I love your blog! There is however, a weird little window that says "the picture has been moved" or something like that, which scrolls down the page as you do. Check it out without logging in so you can see what I mean. I am following you now. I hope you do join the vintage shabby/chic hand made flower swap. It's gonna be FUN!
