I am not very good at keeping updates on here. I am still working on my trade mini for Weezie. She is starting on mine. I really haven't been doing a whole lot of scrapbooking as of late. I have been mostly working on some photos. Editing them and such. I have a few hobbies and I kind of bounce around on them. I bought a Canon Rebel XS about 6-7 months ago and I love it! I am hoping to start taking more pictures of people. I am also working on my editing skills because I know that can really improve a photo. I want to put a couple up that I took of a friend of mine about 2 years ago. These were with a different camera nothing fancy. I just recently found them and thought I would try my editing skills on them. I really like how they turned out. Let me know what you think. The pictures were taken in my friends backyard. It was fall and leaves were everywhere. Great time for taking pictures. I also have more I would eventually like to post. Besides that I have just been working and keeping busy. Well that is pretty much it.

Here are a few pics of the car!


So I haven't posted in a while. I have been really busy and sick the last week or so. I have started on my October GGS mini album swap. My trade partner for this month is Weezie! I was excited when I seen it was her. She makes awesome mini's. After I finish it I will take some pics and post them after she has recieved it. I MAY GET A NEW CAR!!! I am so excited. My husband and I have only had one vehicle for the almost 2 years we have been married so we really needed another vehicle. We have a truck that he will continue to drive so I needed a vehicle for work and just to get around. At first I was very set on a SUV but he really wanted a car. I don't know how but now I want a car. And we found one we really like. We test drove it yesterday. It is a 2006 Nissan Altima Dark red tinted windows. It looks so nice. So if all goes well I may have it by Wednesday. It is so funny to he had no plans to get a car anytime soon. I did some looking around and found a couple and now it's like it was his idea. That good because I really wanted one. Well that is my update pretty much!

The weather here in Oklahoma is beautiful right now. I love Fall. It is my favorite season. It is even cold enough in the morning or late at night for a jacket. I wake up freezing. I am off today and hope to get some cleaning done and maybe get some scrapbooking in. I sent off Felica's mini album to Ireland yesterday. Hopefully it takes no longer than a week to get it. I hope she likes it. I will post pictures of it after she has recieved it. I am going to try in the next week or so to post some projects up. That is the reason I started this blog. Well I can't wait until
I get the name of my GGS Trade partner for next month. I had alot of fun doing it. Well I haven't ate yet so I think I will go and do that now.

Today there is a big arts and crafts show and yard sale not far away from where I live, but I don't get to go today because I have work. Maybe in the morning I will get to go. Yesterday I came home cooked then went and did some scrapbooking! I should have my GGS Trade Mini in the mail by Monday. It's super cute! Tonight we will probably stay home or go to town to do some grocery shopping. I should be getting ready for work. lol. I found a little store that just has a variety of things and they had alot of scrapbooking paper and it was all on clearance!!!! I got I think 37 12x12 pieces of paper and cardstock for $4.88! That was a great deal. Wish I could go back and get some more! She said that wasn't going to be carrying scrapbook supplies any more. They also had some of the cutest luggage I ever seen! I will have to go back and get me some. Well that is really all for now.

I have been gone for the last 3 days and when I got home today and checked my mailbox a had a GREAT surprise! My GGS Trade Album was here. It came alot faster than I expected. Felica sent is Tuesday of last week. I couldn't wait to open it. But I had to unpack all my stuff first! : ( I opened the envelope and she had it wrapped in purple tissue paper and tied with some beautiful green ribbon. I love all of it! I was trying to decide what my favorite part about this mini is, but couldn't. This is my first mini I actually get to keep. Every mini I have made has been for someone else. I can't wait to fill it up. I have already decided to use all black and white photos for this album I think that will look nice with the colors. I LOVE IT FELICA!!!!! I will name some of my favorite things. I loved the silver flowers with blue pearl centers, the little envelopes ( now I want to make some), the key embillishment (What did you use on this?), the fibers and ribbons (espically the blue velvet on the tag) Also the paper and color combo. I have been really loving light blue lately! It is beautiful. I tried to make a small vid 3 times and my camera will not work correct so for now all I could do pictures. I will make a vid when I fix the problem with my camera. Thank you so much Felica for the mini. I love it and will always always keep it!!! I am so sorry I haven't got yours in the mail. I had a funeral today and one yesterday. That is why yours hasn't got sent yet. But it will soon! Promise. Well I am wore out and pretty hungry! lol. When we got home we went to take a one hour nap that turned in to 3! I have lots of laundry to do also! HERE IS MY GGS MINI FROM FELICA!!! IT IS SO CUTE!

I am fixing to get ready for work, but real quick wanted to post small blog today! The last few days I have just been busy with work, went to church, and working on my GGS Trade Mini Album. I like how it is forming. I found a way to use UTEE. I didn't have any embossing ink and my distress ink didn't hold on the powder. So with a paint brush I put Mod Podge where I wanted to emboss. And then put UTEE over the place I had spread the mod podge and it works. I will have to get a new kind of embossing ink for stamps though, because mod podge didn't work on my stamps! I also have just been playing around with new techniques using antique glaze and crackle paint. Well this is just a quick post and hopefully I will be able to post some more with pics of another mini I did about 3 months ago. It was my first mini ever and it showed. Oh well my sister who received it for her birthday seemed to like it, and that is what matters. Well I guess it is time to get dressed for work! : (
