blah blah blah

OK, I guess it's time to climb outta my hole. Josh has been gone a whole week now and I miss him terribly. I've been a huge bum around the house. Last week I was sick sick sick (thanks to my wonderful kids), the weather sucked, thus adding to my hobbit state. But despite all that, I am now officially licensed to drive in Germany. Beware the granny driver. I don't like going over 70, which apparently is slow here.

Not alot of scrapping going on. I guess in some sort of off the wall way, Josh is my muse. lol. I've been feeling uninspired lately. Thank goodness for Rhonna Farrer's 21 Day Challenge. Basically, I'm making a mini book out of this Melissa Francis star album I've had for what seems like forever. Each day, my goal is to draw, paint, etc and include a quote that Rhonna has supplied. I'm not going all out...no papers, embellies, etc. The purpose of it is to create a habit...I used to draw like crazy when I was younger. When I was in college, I painted alot. I took a couple of art classes and I loved them. Now, I'll draw a bit here and there...doodle on my layouts, but I don't just sit and draw in my sketchbook like before. I'd like to get into that habit. We're only into day 4. Some of the pages I REALLY like...others are, engh. But it's the process that's important. Actually taking a little bit of time each day to sit and work towards your habit...even if the end result isn't perfect...is the key. At the end of the 3 weeks, I hope to have an inspirational mini album that I can pull down from my shelves and look at during times like this; when I'm feeling a bit uninspired.

Now I don't want you to think that just because I feel like I'm in a bit of a rut, it means I'm not creating at all...because I am!! :) I just don't feel those "creative juices" flowing out of me. The new Mojo challenge is going up tomorrow!! Here's a sneakie. :D

Things have been a bit slow over at ScrapbookMate. February was a slow month for newly released products, buuuuuuut CHA is over and our new boxes are on their way. My german mate got hers today, so I'm going to go by the "depot" in the next town to see if mine is there. And hopefully the young guy that speaks english is there. LOL! Pathetic, eh?

So guess what? I pulled all my etsy goods and they're all sitting on my table, ready to be photographed and put up for sale. It's time to make some spending money! lol. I've been really, REALLY thrifty as of late. I think I've shopped for scrapbooking items twice since the start of 2008. Being on a design team that hooks you up with new product helps, you know?

Also, I am working on a project with some Grungeboard. I can't wait to complete it. If it comes out the way I have it pictured in my mind, it's going to be awesome. :D

I got a new videocamera. The wonderful little "Flip." I decided on it after reading Donna Downey's blog and her rave reviews. This puppy is cuuuuute and super easy. And even cooler? I have a little something in the works for all you scrappers out there. It's still in it's creation mode, but it's going to be totally neat.

That's all! Oh! It snowed a bit today. I couldn't believe it. Just once, I want to see a blanket of snow. This Texas gal hasn't experienced a big snow.

Holy crap! You are an amazing artist! I only wish I could draw like that. Sadly, stick figures are about the extent of my drawing capabilities. LOL! Can't wait to see all of the fun projects that you have up your sleeve!
