ONe of these days...

I will get around to letting go of Christmas on my blog...
you know, the header, the music.


* I'm currently working on the big chest, sideboard, console table, whatever.
Maybe I should just call it my white trash craigs list find :)

* Nathan has been sick (like a dog) for like 4 days.

* Kristen and her friend have tried out for the school talent show, and they made it!
They are dancing to Another ONe Bites the Dust. They are too cool.

* I had a great birthday. Lots of calls from people who love me ;) Dinner with the fam.
FABULOUS gifts, and to die for chocolate cake! For real, that's what i named it.

* I currently am having a fabric addiction. Hello, my name is Carol, and I love fabric. Been
buying a bit lately, have LOTS of plans! Now to execute said plans!

* Samantha started piano lessons, she is loving it.

* I'm hosting a jewelry party next Tuesday evening, the 23rd. If your interested (cause I
know everyone wants to come!) let me know and I'll get you the details.

* In honor of my still Christmasy blog...here's a Christmasy layout!

Considering my luck with blogspot these days, i am anticipating this post to look like crap when i publish it!

edit: whud i tell ya!

Back in Business Baby

I finally got my computer back a few days ago.
It's kinda weird.
I've lost all my original settings and have to redo everything.
But I got all my files back...except ALL my downloads.
Need to find out if my computer guy has those somewhere.
Hope so.

Anyway...having come back from the brink of destruction,
I've spent some time on some pictures that I had and put
in a BIG OL' order of prints at Costco.

I took the girls out on a little adventure to old downtown...
aka: the hood, a few months back.
They were ok with most of our stops, but at one possible location
they stated with a bit of apprehension in there voices
"we're not getting out of the car."
So we didn't'. But overall we had a lot of fun.

I told them to wear whatever they wanted and do whatever they wanted.
Here are a few of my faves.

this one has a sunkissed action on it

this ones got an urban action to it.

The rest of these have no actions on them
cause that's part of what I seem to have lost.
bummer dude.

It's been busy around here as usual.
Jack had a little birthday in January (need to get on those photos)
We've got another birthday coming ;)
I've been painting (does it seem like I'm always painting something??)
It's been nearly 6 years, so a repaint of the downstairs is in need.
My cabinet is next in line...gonna get that baby finished here soon...i promise!
For my sanity, I've squeezed in some scrapbooking here and there.
Here are a few layouts I did a few months ago.
I actually loaded these and a ton of others onto my flikr photostream
if your curious to see more ;)
Some old pictures of Kristen
I like to melt all over!
