It's me...

I'm alive... just unmotivated, tired, stressed, overwhelmed with no time to spare. Wow, how depressing even for me. Sorry ladies, I've wanted to post but I've been really tired at night with a headache that won't go away... Enough negative stuff, let's see. I've actually been up to stuff on the down low in scrapworld.

As you all know, or maybe some of you know. I am determined to get published in 2008. I've been working on layouts for submissions so I can't share at this precise moment but I will share some layouts that I have totally lifted from Creating Keepsakes magazine. I had no mojo so I borrowed some ideas :-)




Ooh... I bought Photo Freedom by Stacy Julian. I haven't sat down to read it in detail but wow what a wealth of information. She has a lot of great ideas for photo organizing. I will definitely use these ideas for organizing my current photos. I don't really see applying these concepts on my older photos because it's just too time consuming.




I totally recommend it...

Check out my Karate Kid. He's advanced to orange belt. I'm so proud of him. He takes this class with Jacqueline (Damaris's daughter) and they enjoy doing it together.





That's all for tonight. I'm off to finish a mini I'm working on. Have a wonderful Wednesday and Happy Scrappin...

You'll get published this year, girlie! I can feel it! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! :)

I really want that Stacy Julian book too! I'll keep that on my wish list. :)

Awww, your son looks so cute in his orange belt. Is that what I get to look forward to when Jonah grows up? :)
