Hello....Are you still there?

I know I've been a terrible blogger lately but I hope you are still hanging on with me. This isn't the only site I neglect. My Myspace page hasn't been updated in months and my new Facebook account will be lucky if I visit once a week. You see, I think this is too much to keep up with. Why are we so hung up on the latest and next best thing and why do we need so many avenues in which to communicate? Really. We have several email accounts, a home phone, cell phones with text messaging, myspace, facebook, blogs, dating sites and even twitter! Geez! Does anyone have a life beyond the cyber world? Just saying...

Anyway, now that I'm off my soapbox, I'm here to share what I've been working on the last few weeks. When I'm not seeking employment and taking care of life in general, I am creating.

I hope you enjoy these.


First up is my Month of Gratitude album. This was a Simple Scrapbooks project where you can download the journaling cards from their website. I did it for December and this is how I chose to decorate it. Rubons are from 3birds, American Crafts and the Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby). Other embellies are from 3 Birds. Here are the highlights:




My second project is an acrylic album. I just love the Fancy Pants Valentine papers and cards and Elle's Studio Valentine birdie labels. The acrylic embellies are American Crafts and the felt embellies are 3Birds, rubons, stickers and chipboard are 3Birds, and other misc paper, silver hearts and ribbon. I put together the flower embellishments with several punches and embellies.



Also, wanted to share a couple of fun pictures of the punchies I've been collecting from my scraps. I can't believe how much I have already. I love all the colors.



I am also working on Project 365 but have fallen behind since I haven't ordered any more picture prints in a while. This is something I will be doing this weekend for sure and I will post some of those pages soon too.

My take on small things said...

I like these albums. Really beautiful. This should be your career, not a hobby.

I'm still here....sadly, I'm usually a silent stalker, happily reading from the comfort of my google reader. I stress about keeping up in the cyber world as well...remember the whole facebook deleting incident. Some people are just too high maintenance for me. I struggle to keep up and make everyone happy...just not enough hours in the day. With work, my boys, my dh....I just have to sometimes let my computer stuff take a back seat. so no worries from my end. i'm still with you. love the gratitude album, the acrylic AND the punches. you've been busy. i'm not doing the 365 project. i sucked at it last year so decided to not even bother. good luck with yours :)
