Happy Thanksgiving!

Just want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone takes just a minute to actually think about what they are thankful for. It is always good to reflect on these things and appreciate them.
Just a pic of someone I am very thankful for all the time! : )

Well, I haven't been very good about posting again.  It seems we are so busy lately and when I am on the computer I am trying to catch up with other things.  But I am making a little time today.  I am linking a few things that are inspiring me right now.  Thanks for peeking! 

I know it sounds silly that email can be inspiring but they now offer different colors and styles for your background.  Right now I have a sunset color scheme and it is so pretty.  Oranges and brown.  Makes me want to go home and get out my BG Ambrosia paper and scrap with it.  Gorgeous!  

If you haven't checked out Esty, now is the time. Everything is handmade and it is all unique and fun.  Many different items available so that everyone can find something they like.  You can shop by item or even by color!  I love all the little paper goodies you can find for scrap booking.  I also enjoy browsing the purses!  So cool. 

I have posted about this site already.  But today I am emphasizing it.  I am taking a free class here and it is wonderful and very inspiring.  She offers other classes and will be announcing the 2009 schedule soon.  If you sign up for her newsletter you will find out about them when they are announced.  Also, how beautiful is the background of her web page?!  I think that inspires me even more!  

Well, that's it for me for now.  Get out there and get inspired!  
Have a good Friday!

Where have I been?

I have been meaning to post but we have been sooo busy! We are really working hard to get our new room done. We are remodeling a room into a game room. We are going to have a pool table and probably a bar and a table for playing cards etc. We have spent the last couple of weeks sanding the mud off the walls and painting! Not really a lot of fun, but definitely worth it! We are really excited to get it done and love seeing the progress we are making. I will post pics one of these days to show the progress and definitely when we get it done.

I have some news on the scrapbooking front. I have applied for my first ever design team. I have never done this before and I am very excited! I won't know until the end of the month if I made it and I can't wait! I applied at a very cool place called Your Memories by Design. She has a great blog, forum and a really awesome store. She makes some of the neatest things! Here's a link, check it out! I'll let you know how it turns out.

I am also taking an online class by Jessica Sprague. I am super excited about this too. it's a free class which is great and I think it will be a good learning experience. Here's a link to that too.

Got lots of other stuff to catch up on and post soon. Keep checking back!
