hello mojo.

I don't know what's coming over me. Today I had the urge to clean... Well, I shouldn't say CLEAN since all I did was tidy up the house. It started with the kitchen, then the dining room... And then it led me to the scraproom/office.

And I stared at all the unopened kits I have from the past 3 months: Studio Calico, A Million Memories, Label Tulip - all of them just staring at me in the face, chanting: "Use me. Use me. Use me."

And I did.

And it felt good.

I finally got around to scanning a layout I did last month...

supplies: patterned paper: Basic grey, Fancy Pants, Scenic Route; chipboard: Scenic Route; stamping ink: ColorBox; journaling tag: My Mind's Eye; pen: Uniball Signo

The picture was taken at a family member's wedding in September... Carl took it. I love the photo. It's totally Jonah. :)

And tonight I sat down and created this:

supplies: cardstock: Bazzill; patterned paper: Basic Grey, 7gypsies; notepaper: Making Memories; acrylic tree: MME; pen, letter stickers: American Crafts; stamping ink: StazOn

I'm getting closer to making my 100 layouts this year goal.... 3 more and I'm there! Unfortunately I won't have the time to scrap between tonight and Dec. 31st... I work all weekend and I have a huge party on New Year's Eve...

But who knows... I might find a layout I'd created and never posted... Hmmm...

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! Here comes 2008! :)

happy holidays. :)

hi all...

I've almost found my mojo and we'll be back to our regularly scheduled program shortly.

Chasing a 10 1/2 month old all day gets exhausting and when it comes to "me" time when he falls asleep at night, I just want to hit the bed too!

Disneyland was awesome. So much fun... Here are a couple of our favorite pics:

It's a Small World was his first and favorite ride. He sat on my lap the whole time and held on to the bar in front of him. So cute!

Can't you tell he's at the Happiest Place on Earth???

The castle at night... (hubby took this pic...)

It's been non-stop busy since we've been back! AND the day we got back we went to Santa's Tree Farm to cut down our tree. :)

Happy Holidays, everyone! :)

Just thought I'd post a little bit... Even though I'm running low on mojo I'm sure some of you want to know what I've been up to. (at least I think you do! *lol*)... Since Thanksgiving, it's been pretty busy!

We leave for Disneyland tomorrow! So excited!

Still don't have a Christmas tree up - I have to add that to my to-do list when we get back from Disneyland.

I've been good with the Christmas shopping and I'm almost done with gift buying... Hope I can find more things while I'm out of town. :)

Jonah is getting bigger and he's way more active. He's got his first couple of teeth in but lucky for us he's still sleeping through the night!

My mom is doing great - thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!

Here are 2 layouts I never posted in my blog last month. My bad, I totally forgot... That brings my November count up AND I only need 5 more layouts for the rest of the year! Yay! :)

I created these for my November CT assignment at K-Joi Studios using Joanna Hope's Monster Mash kit and my BFF's pics since I didn't have any Halloween pics this year.

Hope everyone is doing well! I'm sure I'll have plenty of Disneyland pics to share when I get back! :) Have a great weekend!
