I was tagged by one of my favorite scrapbookers, Bjh from the forum.

If you've been tagged, list 7 random facts about yourself and list the 7 people you are going to tag.

Here are my 7 random facts:
  • After nearly 4 decades, the best friend I found at birth, Jennifer, is still my best friend today. I'm pretty sure she still claims me too! Today (11/26) is also her birthday.
  • I used to own my own meal preparation business called, "You're the Chef," in Flint, Michigan. We closed a little over a year ago due to the economy.
  • I am a huge fan of the stage play Annie (not so much the movies though). My two daughters are following in my footsteps.
  • I studied musical theatre in college and did one regional commercial for a home improvement store the summer after I graduated. It was my one and only professional credit.
  • I have a masters degree in public administration (I am a master bureaucrat).
  • If I could, I would be happy to survive on a diet of pizza, gyros and Halo Burger.
  • My husband and I pulled off a military wedding just 4 days after 9/11. Our honor guard dropped from six to two, but I still walked under the sabers and Allen was not ordered to report (we even made the Hawaiian honeymoon)!
I am off to tag:

No Cricut for me!

My Mike's advertisement said they opened at 6 a.m. today. I got there at 5:45 thinking I had plenty of time only to find out that they opened the doors at 5:00 a.m. (they just wouldn't start ringing people up until 6 a.m.). Needless to say, the Cricuts were gone. I have not interest in going to the WalMart in town, so oh well. I still was able to get a lot of stuff, so it was not a total loss. I'm taking this as a sign that I am really a QuicKutz gal at heart.

I hope you all have a great day and find deals galore!

Awesome New Papers!

I just found a new line of papers that I am in love with. It's called Daisy Bucket Designs. They are just beautiful. Maybe I can take a photo and post it tomorrow. They are double-sided, and the colors are great. They fit my style perfectly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I did get a new Canon Power Shot this weekend. It was an early Christmas gift from my parents as Audrey dropped my old one last week and Allen's just seemed to poop out on us. My Mom found it on sale at Best Buy, and nabbed it for me. This time, she got the extra warranty that covers it even if I run it over with my car. With the way our other two were treated, that's a real possibility! Thanks Mom!

As a writer, and especially as someone who majored in English for my undergraduate degree, I am having a very hard time with my HOF Ticker. You see, I do not have one LO done. Rather, I have one LO finished. Oh, using done in place of finished is one of my biggest pet peeves. It ranks right up there with people who think a lot is actually one word and those that don't know the difference between your and you're. Oh yes, there are also people who insist that they are doing good when they're actually doing well. Arg!
Ok, the ticker stays, but it is really going to bother me!

One down!

Whew! The first HOF LO is complete. Now that I got started, I hope I keep up the momentum! Anyone else started? finished? still thinking?

Found some mojo and looking for a card kit

I can't sit her and type for too long, because I've got some mojo, and I don't want to waste it. I have been going through the gallleries at and, and I've got some inspiration!

I think I might "cheat" and order a card kit this year. I'm going to do some looking around to see what I like. Any input would be appreciated!

Where's my Mojo?

I did do one LO the other day. It's actually a scraplift - sort of. I had the idea in my head and even had the photos developed and on my desk. Then my December CK came in the mail, and there was somebody else's version of what was in my head. So, I knew it was a sign to do the LO. I did it, I love it, I plan to submit it to CK. What's the problem? Audrey dropped my camera, and it is out of commission for now. I don't have a 12X12 scanner. Arg.

So anyway, I have all these plans for HOF, but for some reason, I'm just not doing them. If anyone has some scrapping mojo to send my way, please do so. I think a big part of it was getting through Halloween and then getting through the first Daisy meeting (it was tonight). I now have two weeks until the Daisy's meet again. I also have a great co-leader and a few more Moms that want to help out, so I'm in good shape there. I do have Callie's birthday party in couple of weeks too, so that will take up some time. However, if I keep focused, I really have no excuse.

So that's it: No excuse. I need to start making that counter to the right move. No excuses. Except that right now it's time for bed. No more excuses starting tomorrow.

This is my first time going to Scrap-A-Faire. I have not registered for a class yet. Please take the poll to the right and tell me what you think.

Callie would not let Audrey participate in her school Halloween parade (she's just a pre-schooler after all), but Audrey still had fun watching! This photo cracks me up!

New site I'm crazy about

Have you been to What a resource! Let me know if you've been there and what your name is there so I can look you up! My name (if you have not guessed already) is Scrapperdays.

Here's a photo of Callie in her first school Halloween parade. She was dressed up as Barbie Island Princess. If I had of know that they were just putting the costumes on over their street clothes, I would have dressed her in blue instead of brown!

Hair Scare

As much as I love Halloween, I'm glad it is over! Between dance class parties, school parties and trick or treating, I'm pooped! Not to mention the late nights because the girls were buzzing on sugar. Yes, last night I found them hiding underneath the dining room table shoving as much candy in their mouths as they could! They also chose last night to break my will in regards to re-brushing their hair before we set out trick-or-treating. At least I will have fun scrapping this!
