Blogging is hard

Blogging is hard. For me, anyway. What to say. Who cares. I am sitting here, falling asleep, even though it is only 4:45 in the afternoon. I am tired. I have not been sleeping well, going to bed too late, and getting up too early. Every time I think, "tomorrow I will sleep late", something comes up. And, my allergies are acting up - big time! I thought I had an eye infection yesterday, when my right eye got all red and puffed up. But then my other eye started to bother me and puffed up. And, they were itchy! I took some allergy medication (which I should be taking every day, according to the doctor) and the itching went away, but my eyes are still puffy. Lack of sleep isn't helping much. Anyway, here is another LO. I used Pillowgirl's Heirloom Lace Papers and Heirlooms from Mother.

One more for today

Another LO done with the beautiful heritage kit, A Treasured Past, by Skrapper Digitals. This is my grandmother Mary, my mother's mother, who died when I was only 5. I don't remember much about her, and this is only one of the very few photos we have of her.

Digging through Old Photos

Have been going through all the photos I scanned in. What memories they bring to mind. The two heritage kits I acquired recently are perfect for the old photos. Here is one that I scrapped using the beautiful kit, A Treasured Past by Skrapper Digitals. Don't have much time today as our son and granddaughter are coming in from St. Louis and should be here any minute, and I want to go bake some Pumpkin Bread.

Mirror, Mirror

I have been busy with real life, and have not had much time to scrap. But I finally quit tonight and stopped to scrap this LO of my Aunt Betty. She was the youngest of my father's family and a beautiful woman inside and out. I used the beautiful papers and elements from Pillowgirl's sets Heirloom Lace Papers and Heirlooms from Mother. I have come to the conclusion that previews, no matter how cute and well made, never do digital scrapkits justice. I recently acquired two heirloom kits and the quality of the charms and papers and elements is just outstanding. So real, you can just reach out and touch them. I have another LO to post as well, but it will have to wait until the new season starts of Ugly Betty and Grey's Anatomy are over. Gotta go. Back later or in the morning.

Finally Finished

I am finally finished with the filing cabinet. Boy, that was a job. But it is organized now, cleaned out, and easier to find stuff. Not that I will like filing any better...LOL. Next, I will have to tackle the office closet.
I did have time this morning to scrap using CanDesigns beautiful Adornment kit. I like the way it came out.

I'm in one of those moods.. clean. So I tackled the big file cabinet in the office. So much junk was just stuffed in there when we moved in, and it was time to clean it out. My hubby says the shredder is overheating, but I am almost done. I just need to go through all the warranties and computer stuff... and make some file folder labels (I am a neat freak) and I will be done. Then I can get back to scrapping without feeling guilty. Here is another LO I did with Lisa West's Adelaide kit.

Another Busy Day

Where does the time go? It really sounds like a cliche, but since I retired, I just don't know where the day goes. We always seem to be running around. Tonight we watched the season finale of Burn Notice. Such a good show! Now we have to wait until next summer until it is on again. But, the new season for our regular shows (House, Grey's Anatomy, Ugly Betty) starts next week. Thank goodness for DVRs. Anyway, had time to scrap another LO. This time I used Adelaide, a kit by Lisa West.

and two from Daphne, another kit by Lisa West.

Library Day

Off to the Library today to return some books and get a few more. I am almost finished the Clive Custler book I am reading, and want to get some Stuart Woods books to finish the Stone Barrington series I have been reading. I am a big mystery book fan. Here are my latest LOs, done with KoriB's new Electric kit, available at Stone Accents Studio.

New Layouts

It seems like the Grand Opening day at Stone Accents Studio went smoothly. The designers' kits are just gorgeous. I had a chance to work with the September Megakit and did the following two LOs. The kit is huge! I am working on some additional LOs as there are so many papers and elements in the kit.
