So much for good intentions

Lately, I've been busy on other work and have fallen behind in my online world. Melody is helping me with Farmtown and I've actually missed several days at Slots! Who could have imagined. Co-worker is on vacation and I'm pulling some overflow to help. No issues, just keeps me really busy all day long.

I have yet to unpack the work laptop from the weekend away - I should get my photos uploaded - one of these days. Got 2 events coming up in November and I still need to complete the class packs and sign ups. Some days I am not sure if I'm coming or going.

How about you? Busy much?

R & R

Had a wonderful weekend away - worked on completing a number of projects I had begun in my recent travels. I was quite pleased with all I accomplished. The weekend was cold, rainy and dreary outside, but inside, I was in a place of peace and creativity. Wish I could have those times more often.

Yes, I know you're probably saying, how about showing us some of these fabulous projects you keep talking about... well, here's the thing - for some reason, editing and printing photos really doesn't excite me. I have Photoshop Elements, but it's still so tedious and there are so many steps. Wish I hadn't lost the web site for that one scrapbooker who tells how to use actions to do some of the basic photo edit steps easily. Without pictures, scrapbooks really can't be considered complete.

Ce la vie... one of these days I'll get "a round tuit" and actually photograph the projects to share.

Hope all is good with you. I'll try to check in again with some photos to share in a few days.

Home from Travels!

I have had the most amazing several weeks taking incredible classes with some fabulous instructors. I now have tons of projects to finish. Part of today's duties - choose my photos and print so I can build some of these awesome starts.

Scrapbooking art classes are all well and good and the new techniques and perspectives I've gotten from them are totally wonderful, but until I add my photos and story, they're just pretty pieces.

How about you? Are your scrapbooks just pretty pieces or are you really getting into the exploring and documenting your life part? When the two come together - then you get WOW.

Back and Gone Again

Got back from Inspiration Unlimited - you'd think I'd have a good photo of me and Teresa Collins, but I've got to say, while she looks lovely, I think I need my photo guru daughter to fix me a bit before I want you seeing me looking like that.

The event was wonderfully done - smooth, well organized, tons of creative ideas and projects, shopping, and also set in Sunset Station in Henderson Nevada (a casino, in case you didn't know). Needless to say, I had an incredibly wonderful time.

Went to work yesterday. Today, I'm off again to Houston for a store owner training with manufacturer classes and a trade show. Again, I'm expecting to have an awesome time learning new things, hanging out with old friends and making new ones.

When I get back in town, I'll try to get some photos uploaded here to share the fun with you all.

Have a great day!
