since I have been able to get on and post anything. Life has been so busy and crazy these past couple of months. I have been working on my craft room. It is done in the way of construction. We just need to do the little finishing things like putting on the handles to the cabinets my husband installed and the draws, putting up the cork as my "back splash" at my one "desk" area, loading ALL the paper I have on the paper racks(and that is ALOT of paper),picking out the color to paint the walls(not that there is much wall space to paint) and deciding what to do on the cabinets. We bought the unfinished ones and have to decide if we want to paint or stain them. Then there is putting all the little personal finishing touches to do too. It feels like it is taking forever to get it done. I know it will be all worth it in the end but still!!! LOL Now that the nicer weather is here,we are spending time getting the outside of the house looking nice and then we will be working on our pool.
In one of my past posts I told you I was going on a Bus Tour with my sister in April. Well we went and had a great time. My sister said that she will go with me again next year so that was "a good thing". I was so happy that she had a good time. It was great to spend the time with just her and me too. Love ya Vickie!!! We met some more great ladies,had some good food,some good make and takes, bought alot of great finds and of course got LOTS of great FREE stuff at each store we went to. Sue, our bus tour guide from New England Scrapbook Company store was great too. She was alot of fun on the bus. Thanks Sue!!! I was planning on taking pictures of the day and posting here and scrapbooking them,but my camera would not except my brand new SD card. I was soo mad and upset. Apparently they are making the SD cards not that are SDHC and my camera is too old to except them(and it is not that old either!!!). I guess it is time for a new camera....what do you think?
Well that's about it for now......I'll be back with pictures of the room and some new creations.....SOON!!! ;-) Until then.....
Is our puppy Linus. He is 10 1/2 months old and he is a Dorkie. Linus is part Dachshund and Yorkshire Terrier. He only weighs about 5 pounds. We adopted him from my nieces friend. We have had him now for 2 weeks and 2 days. He is such a good dog and we all love him sooo much. How can you not when you look at that face!!!
The bed he is laying in in the picture is a bed from Build a Bear that I had my bears the boys have made me in. Linus fits perfectly in it so it is now his.
Well I am off to go take Linus for a walk.....until next time...
I have to say a big thank you to Leelou's blog. I love that she post blog designs that we can have for free. I don't know about you,but I get tired of seeing the same old design day after day,month after month. I think it is great that we can go some where and get a new look to our blog. If you haven't gone to her site yet,you have to go and take a look. You are bound to find one(or more!) that you like. The hardest part is trying to decide which one to pick. It is even easier now to download and change your look. So what are you waiting for....go check them out!! :-)
I am so excited!!! My sister and I are going on a scrapbook store bus tour. I went last year with my friend and we had a BLAST!!! Spent alot too. :-) We will start at the store I signed us up at. That is New England Scrapbook Company. Then we will be bused to 3 other stores to see demos. and shop. We get breakfast,lunch and snacks. We also get a gift at our host store and a little something from the other stores we go to. Oh and of course we get a discount at the stores too! It was nice being able to see how to use somethings up close and personal and to see things that you can't get at the "chain" stores. It will be the first time for my sister, and boy is she in for a fun day. Unfortunately it sold out before my friend could get a ticket. We're hoping someone cancels so she can go....she is on the list to call if someone does drop out. It will be fun to spend the day(actually weekend) with my sister doing this. She lives about 3-31/2 hours away so we don't get to see each other a real lot. Now we just have to wait until April!! The bus tour is on Sunday April 18th. I'll be sure to let you all know what I get and will take pictures of things to show on here.

Things have been coming along with the room. I am planning on taking pictures of the progress and then when it is done to post on here. I can't wait. It is alot different then we had first thought it would be.....better too!! :-) I am hoping to get back to posting regularly when the kids get back to school and I am able to start creating things to share. I really miss not making things and blogging.
I am going to go get another much needed cup of coffee and then get some things done in the room to keep things moving.
