I have always loved to journal and telling my stories has been apart of me for a long time. As someone who only has a handful of photos to show for her life, it can be hard to tell a story. So over the years as I have a memory that I want to preserve I find away to scrapbook it. Most of the time being taking photos of just about anything.

This week I can across a class offered by Jessica Sprague. It is FREE which is the plus and I think it is going to help me to move past this blah feeling I have about the holidays. You can't beat FREE.

So I think you owe it to yourself and your family to tell your stories. Come on over here and join in on the FREE fun! It will be good for us all.

Creating time
My youngest daughter's birthday was this week. I made this banner for her and hung it in her bathroom so she could see it first thing in the morning. She was pretty excited. Then it was off to her school to decorate her locker. Compete with her favorite altoids. I love it when I surprise my children, it is so much fun!! Happy Birthday Sweetheart!! I know this year is different because of living in a new place. I still hope you had fun and enjoyed the lemon bars!! You are ALWAYS my JOY!!

Mental note

I think I forgot how to scrapbook without a messy desk!! In my former scrapbook corner I had a 8ft long table that I could put some of my mess on while working. Now I'm down by 2ft and I think I have to relearn to do everything!!! arrrgghhh!!!

Promise I will be back soon with a few cute things I have been working on this week.

Loved the class!!

Can I say just how much I loved Wilna's class. It really helped me to get my creative side back in line! It sure is a struggle when you can't find your place!! So here are a few things that we made that I have finished. I had to take a break from fun stuff to finish a wedding present scrapbook that should have been done 7 months ago! Terrible I know but sometimes life just gives big curve balls and you end up going in an unknown direction. I just have to remember that today is a NEW DAY! When I was living closer to my Granddaughter I would pick her up once a week if I could and we would go for 'coffee'. I would get real coffee and she would get her chocolate milk which she believes to be coffee. This little miss has also been known to sneak some of her mommy's coffee when she isn't looking! Both of the pictures of one of our outings.This photo is of the man I share my coffee with every morning on the couch. It is a silly picture taken at a local park with us sitting on the metal goat. He is actually kinda cool because he actually eats garbage if you give it to him.I ended up making this little album for my Mother so she could keep it in her purse. I filled it with photos of her and my Dad with their great grandbabies. She got it in the mail the other day and called to say it was very special. I like making people's day!
