She works...

I worked today. Yes I worked on a Sunday. I feel almost blasphemous even typing that. My days were already screwy with thanksgiving and now I really dont know what day it is! I get all weird if Im off my normal schedule. Im crazy like that :) I did get a chance to scrap a bit today (which is fantastic because I was feeling so so blue and now I feel great) It was all dt work, but it was still loads of fun!
We have something special going on at caardvarks the beginning of december. Something extra special that lasts more than a day and has me making cards like a madwoman. Make sure you watch the site for details.

I also finished my projects for the so very cool December More than scrapbooking kit. It actually comes with this rockin American Crafts d-ring album. The AC Metropolitian papers are very modern and would be perfect for those retro pics (or your New Years night on the town pages.) It was a fun kit to work with. I even made a few cards for varks ;)

CAN YOU BELIEVE ITS LESS THAN A MONTH TIL CHRISTMAS! Holy Crap! I need to get shopping now so Im done before I leave for Vegas in 2 and a 1/2 weeks. Whoo hoo!

She is stressed

Thanksgiving is so stressful for me. I end up in the car half of the day as Im shoved from one place to another (both of our parents are divorced so we go 4-5 places a year) Im also shoved food at all those places. (dont they know I have a bridesmaids dress I have to fit into) I wish so hard that I could just stay home all day and cook a big dinner in my pjs while watching football and drinking mimosas. I wouldnt miss the parade or the family game time and I wouldnt have to deal with the drama.

Why is there always drama on holidays? Why cant we just get with those we love and have it be drama-free? Im praying for a drama free holiday season this year (it would be a first) I wish I didnt work tonight and the rest of the weekend so I could go spend time with the out of town fam. I have cousins coming back that I really want to see.

If you have extra time this weekend... there is a new Caardvarks challenge (rub me tender, rub me sweet) going on. Its sponsored once again by the fabulous kits at the Embellishment Studio. If you love vintage lace, buttons and pretty embellments you dont want to miss out on Susan's kits!

Here is my funky card with painters tape and glitz netz. Im loving the tinkering ink blur line. Its so funky and fun.

In case I have no time tomorrow..... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! :)

She jams

I found this little lip dub several months ago somewhere in the blogosphere. I hadnt seen it again until tonight. Im so glad I uncovered it again. This was done after hours in an office somewhere. I wish I worked there.... totally my kinda people.

The song is Flagpole Sitta by Harvey Danger (which I absolutely LOVE)

It seriously reminds me of something my brother would conjour up.... and it makes me smile... so enjoy :)

She lives!!

Inhale... exhale...
Yep! Im breathing :)

I know I kinda disappeared for about a month there.... but October is always crazy busy for me. Work is insane, the auction is getting finalized and there is always family drama!

Good news is I had a birthday November 1st! 29.... only one year off from the dreaded 30. (I made this layout 1 week prior to my birthday) I had Matt take me out to the Japanese hibatchi place. After 2 orange creamscicle martinis, sushi and some hibatchi filet & shrimp I no longer cared how old I was. (*shhhhhh* I think Im actually looking forward to my 30s, but dont tell anyone and dont make fun of me next year when I cry) I still havent gotten any birthday presents though

Although I did go out and buy myself these super cute shoes :) and of course some scrapbook supplies.

I am thankful for November because it means my scraptime is back! Here's a few pages I made in the last few days. I seem to be in love with Scenic Route lately
