Oh November...

Hey there!
I'm so excited and so confused that it's November already! It seems just like yesterday that it was spring, and now, we are gearing up for another winter. Time flies. And it gets so dark so early now! Ugh. But, once the Christmas lights are up, it helps a lot. My semester is nearing its end, my birthday is oh so close, and the holidays are right around the corner. It's an exciting time of year for sure! Life has been good lately. Looking forward to making more memories.


I need to carve out more time to be here. I have so many cool things to share. It's gonna happen.  :)

Thank for reading!

Hello September!

September is here, and that means that fall is near!! Although we've had a cooler than normal summer, I'm still looking forward to those cool, sunny fall days, fall fashion, fall birthdays, and the holidays!  :)

Scrappy Sunday

Hey there!
For me, it's the day before school starts! This summer has simply flown by! I have had many, many wonderful moments and some challenges too. I have learned a lot about myself, and life this summer.
Anyway, here is a sample of some of my favorite new layouts!

Thanks for stopping by!  :)

Scrappy Sunday

Hey there everyone!
Welcome to another Scrappy Sunday. I am sad to know that August is half over, but it's been a productive crafty summer for me. I felt like I lost my groove for a while there. Between being super busy with school, stressed over work, and general stress, I was wiped out. So, I tried some new techniques, like using up by backlog of papers and supplies. Another thing I did this summer was to take a few classes. I normally don't like videos (I like PDFs to read at my leisure), but, I took the Kelly Purkey Craftsy class, which are videos, and now I'm hooked with watching scrap videos! It's a different feeling to watch the process. Just what I needed to get out of my rut. :)
Happy Sunday and thanks for stopping by!

Scrappy Sunday

Hello there!
I have been scrapping away happily here. I have been trying to be creative and use up my scraps and older collections I have been hoarding. I just pick up a pile of pretty papers and I keep making pages until the papers are gone! It's a new technique for me that's been working well. It's definitely a different way to scrap. I kind of like it too! Have any of you out there tried to scrap this way?

Thanks for stopping by!
