Our Everyday Life

I knew some time had gone by without me posting any new creations... could be that I haven't done much over the last few months. Guess I've been a little preoccupied with the whole moving thing.... so I thought, it's time to change that.

Here's a mini book, I guess you could call it that, that I created at the retreat, I should probably say that I finished at the retreat. I'd already started it, sort of, before the retreat. The album is canvas and part of a kit I bought, along with the class from Pamela's World of Scrap
I love her blog, love her work, just love everything about her. One of the things I got from her class was to use what you have. All of the canvas pages are glimmer misted and I mainly used items from my scrap stash as the masks. The style here is so "less is more", which we all can agree is not me. This helped me to step outside my comfort zone a bit, and I really liked that. The last few pages have been created but have no pictures as yet. My goal was to do the album about our everyday life right now in this year 2010... and we still have some days left of this year.. not to mention I still have some pictures unprinted... so I'll add pictures to those pages later.

We are getting a bit more settled into the house, it's starting to look and really feel like home. Sometimes I still wonder if it's all a dream. It still amazes me how it all came about. Now I'm wondering just where I'm going to put my Christmas Tree! No, it's not to early to be wondering about this.... something has to keep me awake at night!

Odd as it may seem, I'm in a bit of a quiet mood right now. Have been for a few days, ok many day... I think I know the reason... but knowing it and doing something about it are two very different things. I seem to have this uncanny knack for when I try to do something about whatever it might be, I put both feet in my mouth... sometimes even spare ones that might be in the room too, and then I just make the whole situation worse. Ahhhh, the problems of the world!

My Texas Ranger's play in 47 minutes! If they win today then they go to the World Series. Even if you are not a baseball fan... cheer for them... not only have they NEVER made it to the World Series, but they have never won a Division Series either, which they did last week! (Sorry Barb) Right now they are one win away from winning the Championship series! I'm just so excited!

Thanks for taking time out from your day to stop by! Be sure to give a WooHoo for the Ranger's!!

Woo Hoo for the Rangers!! Hey! If it can't be the Rays I would love it to be the Rangers. I just got in so I don't know if the game is over or still going or if they won or lost. That is the next thing on the agenda!!

Love Love Love your mini, Lisa!! You sure do those books great! I am not good at those. But this one is great. Would love to touchy feel it!

Would you believe I have not had my scrapping out since Sept 29th? I gotta get back at it. Just been adjusting to retirement. Too much swimming and bike riding. And not being used to it I collapse when I get back. Got do it!!!

I wouldn't miss stopping by. Love your blog!

This came gorgeous, I love it. I am so glad your getting settled, and no it's never to early to think about where the tree goes. I'm stumped about our stockings since we have the flat screen on the fireplace now!!

Just beautiful Miss L :)

That album is just stunning. I'd never seen a canvas album like that before but what you did with it is what makes it gorgeous.

Glad you are feeling at home in your new surroundings. Can't wait to see pics of the tree all decorated.

Glad you're settling in and everything's getting into place.
