I'm SO FAR BEHIND!! I haven't scrapped, I haven't blogged, I haven't done anything FUN for weeks! I have awards to give away, OPB's to gush about, a layout or twenty to finish, mini albums to work on, a design class that started a week ago, and I haven't done a SINGLE thing. Nada. Zip.

As of last week I'm 61 years old. Damn. I can't tell you how I wish that number were 40, maybe even 50....but 61? Oh, that's's SO old. But I DON'T FEEL 61!!!! I don't have grandchildren, I don't even have a mate to grow old(er) with. I'm still the same person I always was....wiser, but no different now than I was at 40, or any other age. So you see, therein lies my reasoning for not feeling like a grown up.....I obviously believe you MUST be married and have children in order to grow up. I didn' I'm still a kid. Deal with it.

And... like a kid, I happy danced all over the place last week when my "secret sister" from CKMB sent me a birthday package full of scrap goodies. I just love these packages...but this one was extra special because it was for my birthday...and because it was from my "secret sister" who's been spoiling me all year long.

Love the K&Company goodies, and the mini book (isn't it CUTE???!), and my INITIAL all blinged out in pink! And the CATS word book and cat stickers and an adorable little cat stamp! And on top of all that, she sent me the Mini Album in an Evening mag. Isn't she a cool pal? I hope I'm doing as good a job for mine.

Over the weekend I cleaned out my closet.....exciting huh? Then I cleaned up the balcony since the temperature finally dropped below 100 degrees. I'm still discovering what I can grow out here that the sun won't kill in the summer. The balcony doesn't have an overhang for shade, sun, wind, nuthin'. At least I'm learning to like the desert landscape, it's so different from what I'm used to.

I cleaned up my kitchen island too....the one where I scrap. Put everything away and now I have no choice but to get to work on my design class items. Later folks.
