Sorry for the delay in coming back but things have been a little hectic. To sum things up my son and I have moved into an apartment, I am trying to learn how to adjust my schedule as a single parent, trying to recover from a very nasty bug, trying to unpack and fit my extremly downsided scraproom into a closet, trying to make our space fresh and new to make this transition easier for my son, trying to catch up on cyberland as I just got my new laptop this week..... and it's SPRING! Loving this time of year as it is a true sign of renewal!t. I came across this great site and signed up immediately!

Check it out!!  The Brave Girls Club is an online community showcasing beautiful workshops, retreats and ideas... Plus they have 'A little bird told me…Daily Truth emails' with beautiful sayings that are just what I need right now.... here's today's email.... So go and sign up and get a little breath of fresh air in your emails everyday!

Well I must go and shower (yes it is 11:47 am and it was my first day in a month to sleep in - and boy did I do that!!!!) and greet the day and try to get my to do list semi crossed off!

Bye for now!

New home inspiration

As I mentioned I am in the process of moving and thought I would put together a little montage of some inspiration for my new place. Because of the fresh start that I am embarking on I thought that FRESH colours would be where I was heading.... so here's a little inspiration....

Bye for now....

April Crop Suey Challenge

For Crop Suey's last challenge of this dt term we challenge you to get homemade and scrappy for your scrappy project/layout/card or whatever you choose to do!

*make homemade embellies using scraps!*

Be sure to link your lo up in the comments section on THIS post to be eligible to win the prize from our fabulous sponsor! You have until midnight EST on April 20th to play along!

For my page I decided to use all my bits and pieces of scrap rubons that I have. I have soooo many BG rubons and thought this would be a great challenge for using them! I had these rectangle chip board pieces that came out of some chipboard frames I got at the dollar store and I am just loving grey/yellow/teal so had to work with them. Also had these great rubons from Michaels that had a typewritter on it and the title. Lots of scrap rubon letters, some spray paint, a butterfly and voila!

As mentioned in my last post I am packing and won't be settled until the middle of April and by then I will have purchased my own new laptop!  Scared at what is around the corner but know that in time I will be happy again! Will fill you all in soon - I promise!

Thanks for stopping by!
