On a really big monitor, the background takes over the whole page. I hate it. Down it goes. Thanks for your input!

Hey, I'm tired of working, doing laundry, even scrapping right now. Just playing around with these great backgrounds that I found at Scrapperlicious' site. They're from The Cutest Blog on the Block and it took me an hour to decide on this one. Not sure if I like having a background or not...and I haven't changed anything to go along with it yet....because I need your help. Please answer the poll at the too Erika. I can take the truth! This is a really huge decision in life, you know. It could have grave consequences on my scrapping ego forever.

This is a little album I'm making for my niece, with pictures of her mom.

I changed my blog name. If you know of anyone that is using this name already, please let me know. I looked around and the only one I found is really a scrap pit site. You know...JUNK. Nothing has been posted there since 2005, but I don't want to be using another scrapper's blog name. Just don't think that would be kosher.

I haven't posted anything in a while. I'm working on half a dozen different scrapbook projects right now....some of them are....shall I say old? Like a year or more. Meant-to-be Christmas presents that didn't get finished in time for Christmas. A Week In The Life album. The album above that I'm making for my niece. Two scrapbook classes that I'm WAY behind in, plus the everyday normal scrapbooking that I never get finished. And to help me with all that...I ordered a Bind It All! At least I'll be able to bind my books....they may not be finished on the inside, but they'll sure look cute on the outside.

Then there's that gorgeous book I bought from Dedra Long. I love that book. I've decided to use it as a "me" book..... a little journaling here....some pictures there. I'm going to finish EVERYTHING ELSE before I start this. I am! But after visiting the Creative Therapy site, I'm so inspired to make this book. Just looking at a few of the catalysts, (challenges) they've had in the past gave me insight I didn't really have before. What a cool site. I have Dedra to thank for both.

Only four pages to do for that little album, then I have to journal. I better get to it. Hope everyone's doing great and looking forward to the holidays!

It's amazing what you can fit in 4' of space. What's even more amazing is how much crap is still in my closet! I really have a lot of stuff......I have nothing compared to some scrap rooms I've seen, but I've got a lot for one person with no offspring. I didn't think I could get this much moved to my little corner, but I paid a little trip to my favorite Target store and found the shelf, just the right size for me. And the organizer underneath the shelf, I found in the bath department. It holds a TON of goodies in it and it has an extra long compartment for those extra long packages. I really like this thing...I like having my options at my fingertips without digging through drawers.

Not quite done but it's better than a closet. I may have to attach a skirt to the table, though, it looks so bare. And I'll probably still scrap at the kitchen island where I can stand, but I won't have to drag everything out and put it back all the time.

Thanks to my friend and minibook queen, Dedra Long I won a mini book class at Check it out for yourself, it's only $15.00 and it looks well worth it. 4 mini albums in no time at all! Thank you, Dedra!
