A few weeeks ago

...I took a drive to Kathi's house, to spend the weekend with her and her sister Lynn.  I spent Friday night catching up with them, and just pushing my stuff around on the table.  Then Saturday I got busy and created these 4 layouts. 

I made all 4 layouts using the
Gossamer Blue  December kit.  It was my first kit to get from them, and will not be my last.  They do this thing, if you complete and upload 4 layouts from the kit, 5 months in a row, then the 6th month they will send you a album, for free!!!  I'm trying to be all over that!!  Month one, and I got 'er done!

As you can see, I am still working on my peeps layouts.  And YES Courtney, I'm doing it to purposely make you jealous so you'll come to the next one!!

Have yourself a great day!  It's a bit cloudy here, but temps, in January, we are in the 70's!  What's not great about that!!

Suze Goes...

Happy Friday Everyone!  It's a bit cold here again, but weather says by Sunday we will be back in the 70's!  Sure is making me long for spring!

I am really making progress on my imaginary friends album!  It seems the more I get done, the more excited about it I become! I am hoping to have a big portion of it completed before the lakehouse in May.

This picture is from our first get together in Sept/Oct 2010.  Think this is when Susan and Melissa showed me how wonderful life with thickers could be!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Go shopping!

Can you guys believe that it's almost February?  That means spring is getting closer!!  It also means it is tax form time.  All I can say is thank goodness for computers!

I've really gotten behind/slow/bad/ at blogging the last few months year, which is a bit odd for me. I've been creating, I had layouts stacked up to be photographed, I always have plenty to say, so I'm not sure what the deal is.  I have decided though, that if I had a laptop I would blog more, if I had a laptop I'd spend more time playing with photos, that if I had a laptop I could spend more time in the living room with DA, that if I had a laptop I would stop whining for one!  Can you tell I'm on a quest to get a laptop? 

It's a game we play, DA and I, except I didn't know it was a game until he let it slip, and he doesn't see it as a game, but more of, well I don't know what he calls it.  Anyway, I find something I really really want, and he figures if he gives in right away and I get it, then a week later I'll just be wanting something else. So, basically the longer he can put me off, the more money he can keep, or something like that, I really don't understand his reasoning and that's not the point.  The point is, obviously for his twisted pleasure, I have to whine for a certain length of time about wanting something before it happens.  I'm thinking I'm about there!
Don't think I have to have his permission before I buy anything, because that's not quite true, just big purchases of things that he would without a doubt notice...and a laptop suddenly entering the house would not go unnoticed by the mr.

My mojo seemed to be on Christmas break, and then didn't want to come back, but after a weekend spent at Kathi's Krafty Korner life is good and the mojo is back! And the really big news, a few of us went to a expo, and I spent $20.00!  But then I came home and started making a big huge long list of  everything I am wanting from CHA.  There is some AHHH-MaZing stuff coming!

Here's another layout for my imaginary peeps retreat album.  I just seem really drawn to all the photos from our get togethers right now, it seems to keep me from missing my peeps so much. :)  I really had fun with this layout and it came together quite quickly!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!

Hello 2013

2013- I can't believe it's here already, but I'm ready!  I'm just hoping the first few weeks of it will be a little quiet, because the last month of 2012 was some kind of busy/crazy/shocking/what just happened! 

2013 is going to be a good year!  I just know it.  We've got a lot of unknowns going on right now, mainly
with David's job, that was part of the what just happened last month.  His place of employment sold a few weeks ago and no one is sure right now what is going to happen. 

We got our Miss Jessica moved into her very own place last month.  A super cute loft apartment, that until just a few years ago was a elementary school, and has now been converted into apartments!  How perfect is that for her! 

And in a little over 3 months we will be welcoming a sweet baby into the world.  So the next couple of months will be spent shopping for car seats, strollers, adorable little baby clothes.

See, I told you 2013 was going to be a good year!

Here's a fun layout I created a few weeks ago, from our first imaginary friends retreat in Texas.  I loved Melissa's fuzzy socks, and while we were at Wal-Greens the next day, I bought myself some.  Now, I
have several pair and always think of our first retreat when I go to put a pair on!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and here's wishing you a Happy Happy Happy New Year!
