After Thanksgiving . . .

I'm sitting here watching the guys watching football and it occurred to me - I love this time of year! It's all about family, food, get-togethers, and time together. I'm so very thankful to my God for the opportunity to have this time with my family. I've been under the weather with bronchitis and a sinus infection so I've not been my normal jovial self (hehehe), but nothing beats time with the family.

Anyway, my daughter has just announced her engagement to a wonderful young man and my life will be forever changed for the better. I'm gaining another son! Keep my in your prayers and let's have fun with this! I'm not sure how to do this wedding-thing, but I'm sure my daughter will educate me quickly!

I'm just wondering . . . how can I best use my Cricut for all the things that will be happening? Hm-m-m-m-m-m Any ideas? please let me know by sending me a comment or email (shortscrapper@gmail.com).

I guess I'll figure it out as time goes on. Boy, am I glad I'm through with grad school - whew!

If anybody reads this, I'll be truly amazed. See ya -

Time to share . . .

I'm adding pictures of some of my work. The first one is a page I made for an auction at the first scrapbooking weekend I went to. I had no Cricut, no Cuttlebug, no scrapbooking tools (except inks, scissors, and brads) to my name. I started sewing on my pages because it was a way to dress them up with having all the fancy tools. To this day, I'm still known as the one who "sews on all her pages". While it's not true, it still sounds good! :-D

I'll be adding pictures of other things as I get around to it. For those who find this blog, enjoy.

Oh, the newness of it all!

Okay - so this is all new to me. I'm trying to catch up with the 21st century and do this thing called "blogging". I really wanted a place to show off my scrapbook and card creations and share some stuff that I've learned. I won't promise that I'll post regularly or even add stuff or a consistent basis. I'm a fairly new scrapper and I've got a lot to learn.

But . . . I wanted a place to display what I've done and share what others have shared with me.

I'll be in touch . . .
