An Hour a Day

So after spending the weekend trying to get my current scrap area a little more organized, I decided that I would try and spend at least one hour a day down there doing something.  Today's accomplishment...6 sympathy cards.  Over the weekend I did manage to make Mother's Day cards and a few birthday cards but I don't want to post them until after their recipients have received them.  Tomorrow's project remains a mystery....haven't decided want to do yet but am thinking about Anniversary Cards!

EEK a Mouse

I was working on my computer and all of the sudden Seth yells MOUSE!! I'm like where and he said it was behind the hope chest. Next thing I know he's headed for my desk so of course my feet immediately go up in the chair. All the kids were standing on furniture and this poor mouse was running all over trying to figure a way out of the chaos. He finally went behind the TV for awhile. Katie went downstairs to get a bucket as she wanted to catch him and let him loose outside. Well I went downstairs to put clothes in the dryer and then I hear a bunch of shrieking and then I heard the back door open. When I came upstairs I was informed that he ran out from under the TV and ran around in circles before crawling into Olivia's shoe. Katie picked up the shoe dumped in the bucket and then ran him outside. She was going to let him loose behind the garage but apparently he jumped out of the bucket and ran like the devil. Hopefully we've traumatized him enough that he won't come back!! Katie Jo Horwitz saved the day and is our HERO!!!

Happy, Happy Girl

Drove down to my Mom and brother Skip's last Friday to pick up Katie. The bonus for me was being able to see my niece Madeline. She's such a happy baby. Mom was watching her while her parents and older sisters were on a trip to Ohio to go to Cedar Point, Kings Island and a few other places. They really missed Madeline and I know they were all happy to see each other. Katie and I left Mom and Skip's on Saturday and headed home. It was so HOT!!! I really wasn't feeling well on the way home. I blame it on the heat, I just couldn't seem to cool off. I was in bed by 8:30 that night as I was exhausted.

Today Seth and Marc are enjoying themselves at Six Flags Great America. Seth got a free ticket for doing the reading program at school and I got Marc a free ticket with Coke points. They've already called twice. Seth has been on Raging Bull, American Eagle and Dark Knight. It's the first time he's been on them as the last time we were there he either wasn't tall enough or brave enough. Sounds like they are having a great time! The girls and I are just hanging out at home today and being lazy!

Productive Day Part III

Here's the rest of what I did today!!

Productive Day Part II

I'm doing this in parts as all these pictures won't fit in one post. All of these layouts were done today. I really feel a sense of accomplishment!!

I spent most of the day in the basement scrap booking. It's the coolest place to be since it was over 100 with the heat index today. These are the cards I've made over the past month. The first one was a birthday card for my great niece Ariana. The 2nd one was a birthday card for my father-in-law. The 3rd one was a card for my granddaughter McKenzie wishing her a great summer filled with lots of ice cream. And, the last one was another card for McKenzie saying that I hoped they were all settled in their new home.

I'm Still Here

It's been so long since I've posted I almost forgot how. Well I'm going to try and get back in the swing of posting regularly which I hope means weekly. Here's pictures of some of my latest projects. OK first are cards I made for teacher gifts, they got 4 of each one as a set. Next are two scrapbook pages of my niece Madeline who just turned 1 in May. And, last the wedding card I made for our son Matthew and his wife Tina. I still have some more recent cards to download from my camera so I'll try to get to those later this week. Hope everyone is staying cool!!!

Oops where does the time go!!

Well it's been so long since I posted I doubt anybody even bother to check out my blog anymore. Can't say that I'd blame them. Here's some pictures of things I've been working on over the last several months.

The first picture is of the little Christmas ornament gift tags I made to go with teacher gifts this year. They are filled with mint M&M's. The second picture is the birthday card I made for Olivia's teacher this year. They just happen to share the same birthday. The third is a birthday card I made for one of Seth's friends. Next is the birthday card I made for my niece Chloe, who like her Aunt Paula, loves ducks. Next is the birthday card for my brother Bill. He and his family went to Kennedy Space Center this summer and actually saw a shuttle lunch. And, the last picture is the gift I made for my mother-in-law's birthday.

I'll try and do better about posting!!
