The holiday market is an event I am actually organizing as a fundraiser for my girls' dance team. Somehow I became fundraising coordinator. The words "I'll help" is heard as "I'll be in charge".

The scrapbook pages I am making to sell are really challenging me because I still haven't been able to mix the stamping with the scrapping. I did a cute dps yesterday though.

I miss being on here and "talking" to my scrappy friends. I have been trying to stay off the computer so much because once I get online, I'm sucked in and next thing I know it's three hours later. I'm going to try and check in a couple of times a week though.

I've started checking out pages done this month so far and commented. Hopefully I can catch up for September.

Have a great day!
It's good to hear how you are doing. I know what you mean about being "sucked" in! I find the same thing happening and then it seems I get nothing else accomplished. Hope you get the chance to come back soon!

I've done a few pages for the Divine Digital and Big Picture Class sites but seem to have lost the steam now. Got laid off again this week (kind of thought this would begin to happen since I've been forced to spend time teaching the boss' daughter all the things that I do) However it would be nice when I'm laid off that she would actually do what she was shown instead of just letting it pile up for when they decide they want me back. This week I was to go in one day just to do the weekly payroll. Not sure what she's been doing but definitely none of the other bookkeeping things that need to be done to keep the company current. I guess he'll have to learn the hard way! In the meantime, I'll get to look for another job!

hi! After getting NOTHING done in August (as far as scrapbooking, LOL) I have two pages done for September, a double page layout. I'm happy about that, LOL, and will try to get it posted tonight. I also need to update my signature. I've missed you guys but had to stop reading half way thru page 2 becuase I've got to get dinner going. Hope to check back after the kiddos are in bed tonight! And in the meantime, I did get page 1 posted on my blog here: Tanya's Stamps & Things: Mojo Scrapbook!

Ugh! That's the worst! I hope you find a new and even better job and the boss at your current place can learn the hard way about keeping good people!

I finished the Make-A-Wish album!!! I also printed 3 8x8 albums and have them all assembled I've put the 22 page album in my gallery here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga....php?cat=23577

An aside, I'm SO thrilled with my Epson 1430 wide format printer! I printed 42 12x12 pages with it earlier this summer and then ran out of paper and haven't gotten back to printing. Then tonight I printed 68 8x8 pages and I'm STILL not out of ink - and its still on the "sample" size smaller cartridges that came with!! AMAZING!! I did tell DH to please order me more ink tomorrow as I"m pretty sure if I tried to start printing these Make-A-Wish pages in 12x12 that it would run out before I got too far!

I'm feeling so pleased. Now to get one album packed with a thank you card and Ben's thank you letter to send along to Make-A-Wish UK. We'll go in person to present the one h here in town and ask them to pass along the third one to Ben's Wish sponsor.

Journaling is important but if I don't journal I have a title; sometimes the pics are self-explanatory so I try to find the title in the 'moment'.

I doubt if you're 'lazy', I'm thinking you're just very busy! We all go through 'dry' spells but it's like anything sometimes you need to relax and rejuvenated...or, push through the lack of inspiration. I know I've been doing way less than I use to which is why I am trying to do a L.O.A.D....though I'm waaaaaaaay behind...however, I have about 10 pages more than I did . I was lacking inspiration so I just started to use my favorites and some challenges to force my way through...still not 'there' yet but on my way!

Sounds like a crazy work situation...good luck with the job hunting! I'm starting to look too and hopefully will get something after the 1st of the year if not before.

Agreed - journaling in my everyday album to me means where and when the photo was taken and who is in the photos if it is not obvious who is in the photo. If I have a title and the pics are pretty self explanatory, then I don't always journal. Sometimes I just have a great sketch and a couple fave photos with the date. I'm learning to be less rigid.

Question - what is your favourite way to scrap? Double page spreads or single pages?

I realized as I was working on that last album that I was really hating forcing myself to do double pages (so that I could make the work of the album easier and quicker). I rather like doing single pages with sometimes even only one photo now - maybe its a fad?

I use lots of photos for the most part, it's hard for me to use just one photo. Because of that, I tend to do double page spreads.

[QUOT=3Fries;19698577]I finished the Make-A-Wish album!!! I also printed 3 8x8 albums and have them all assembled I've put the 22 page album in my gallery here: Stampin Up! Gallery: Paralympics Make-A-Wish Trip - Page 1 - Cards & More - Splitcoaststampers

I'm feeling so pleased. Now to get one album packed with a thank you card and Ben's thank you letter to send along to Make-A-Wish UK. We'll go in person to present the one h here in town and ask them to pass along the third one to Ben's Wish sponsor.[/QUOTE]

You deserve to feel pleased, Terri! I just checked out your 22 page album and it is absolutely STUNNING! You did an amazing job (lots of basketballs too ). I'll be very surprised if the Make a Wish people don't use your album in their PR somehow. It all deserves to be published. No kidding! I am so delighted for you. LOVE it!

just dropping in to say hi and see if anybody is around... I am soooo tired, but I am sooooo in the mood to stamp or scrap. I need to clean my house and all I got done today was made bread and laundry. Good thing there is always tomorrow!

Thanks Wendy I was thinking of you as I was making the basketball pages and giggling as I know how much you love my basketball pages, LOL. There is room in the back of each album for a cd, I'm trying to decide if I want to give them a digital copy of the album but I'm inclined not to. I'm really hoping that the company that sponsored Ben's Wish enjoys it too. I tried really hard to capture the experience from Ben's eyes, and the huge pleasure he felt!

Thanks...I guess that means you didn't get the job with the local girl scouts that you had mentioned a while back?

No, a bit bummed. I still haven't heard if anyone got the job; we haven't heard a name with the new position. Either way 2013 is the year I need to get a career going.

Hello Anavon...I'm not a VSN girl...I don't stamp often and that pace overwhelms me . I'm having fun using my cricut to finish my page; haven't used it for more than a few things in a while. Have fun at VSN! I may come and take a peek.



Ok, so we need to stop the month for a little bit so I can catch up to my L.O.A.D. committment...how do we do that?

I'm sorry to hear that...it sounded like the perfect fit for you too! Good luck on your search.

I've got a pretty definite prospect for another job but it won't be ready until the end of October or November some time. It's pretty much exactly what I'm doing now except I would not have to be answering to anyone other than the 3 partners and they don't want to be bothered with too much of the day to day running. I would have remote access from the workplace and I would get to make my own hours and be home in the mornings and afternoons for DGS so he won't have to go to before and after school child care anymore. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and sending up prayers that this deal all goes through as planned. It almost sounds too good to be true but I'm really ready for a change.

I'll have to go and check it out. I need to make some cards but don't seem to have any mojo or inspiration to get going (you know it's not digi )
