Good for ruts!

If you're in a rut, and just want to get a page out quickly to get you going again, let me suggest pages like these two. All I had to do was trim the photos to size, cut out a title block and journaling block, and BAM!

MMM over SOY

I've decided to enter the Memory Makers Masters contest over the CK Scrapbooker of the Year contest. I'm a little surpised myself in my decision because it has always been a goal of mine to combine my two passions of scrapping and writing with a column in a magazine. However, having just come off of not winning CK's HOF, I think it's best not to overwhelm them with stuff from me.

Also, I'm very impressed with they way MM actually answers questions on their message board regarding their contest. That's important to me even if I don't stand a chance in this contest!

I also like the direction MM has been taking lately. I think I've only submitted to them once before, but I think my style is fitting for what they seem to be looking for.

Finally, I just happen to be working on a LO that is perfect for the theme "I Believe." When I read the MMM requirements, it was like fate or kismet or something. That, or it was a huge coincidence that got my blood flowing!

So anyway, that's my decision.

Please wish me luck, and I wish much luck to all those entering either or both contests (you'd have to be insane to enter both at the same time though)!

Let's All Set Some Goals for the Week!

Ok, I like to ask everyone what their scrap goals are for the day on the AMR message board, and I'm one who never seems to meet mine. So, today I want to ask what everyone's goals are for the week.

My goals for this week include:
+Complete the LO that's been sitting on my desk half-finished for almost a week;
+Organize all of my never-been-seen LOs to see which might fit the current calls;
+Possibly start (if not finish) a second LO for the week.

When I look at the list, it doesn't look too hard, but let's face it, the warmer weather keeps us even further away from our scraprooms, and I'm no exception.

I'll check back in and post if I met my goals or not. I'm hoping this will keep me on track!

I also challenge everyone who stops by to set your own goals on your blog! Let's put them out there for everyone to see, and maybe it will help those of us who always find a excuse to not find an excuse!

Third Time is the Boy!

It's official. We had the ultra-sound yesterday, and we are expecting a boy! Finally, I get to start doing pages in blues and primary colors!

I've been lame lately

I have not blogged much, and I haven't visited many blogs lately either. Maybe that's part of why I have no MoJo?

So, I'm posting a LO that I did in about 30 minutes once. It's a photo of my oldest daughter with her first and longest friend. His mother just happens to be my first and longest friend. I am hoping it inspires me to put out another quickie or two tomorrow. Wish me luck!
