Super excited

Katrina's class is starting on Monday and I can't wait. It's a photography class, but it concentrates on taking pictures of kids and I need all the help I can get! Debbie ( graciously gave me a pass to the class, which makes it even nicer! It would be so nice to see some of my friends around there!

Life here has been going it's regular way, nothing too exciting happened. Fall has arrived, it is getting colder and the leaves have really been turning lately. I have started using my Pellet stove already and it's wonderful! I still have all my houseplants on my front porch waiting for my neighbor to finish my floor in the sunroom (where my plants reside in the winter) Of course I can't rush him, it's only been three months since he started... I am seriously debating whether I should just hire somebody else to finish what he started and cut my losses now. I mean, come on, this is ridiculous!

At DD we have a new designer now, you probably all heard of C. Zielske. Yes that's her! She is selling templates at the store and they are really cool, simple and clean! People love her and it's so exciting to have her there, she is such a cutie and really nice!
Well, let me post some pages and maybe that will jog my memory as to what has been happening lately :)

and this next one is at PixelCanvas:

I think I might be having one of my pages published in an Australian magazine, but I am still waiting for the final say, so keep your fingers crossed!
I still feel like I am on cloud nine being on the CT at DD, it is really fun and there is always soooo much new stuff, I don't know what to start with. The other girls are really nice too, which makes it just a wonderful place to hang out! Katie is just the sweetest and very good to us, I mean, really good!
Oh yeah, I am going to take an actual, hands-on photography class locally, and I am really excited about that too. I always wanted to have somebody to ask questions and show me while I am there looking. It's an intermediate class, so I should be okay. Life has really been good lately. Phil is doing okay, his cardiac rehab is going good, no bad symptoms. He still looks a little pale to me, but I think that's just the stress of his work.
I am always busy taking the kids places, if it's not lessons, piano or Karate, it will be some appointment, eyes, teeth and who knows what else. It's okay though, I would probably miss it, if they weren't here :) All I really want to do is sit at my computer and make pages. Everything takes so much time, there is so much to learn and do for crying out loud, Photoshop and Lightroom and how to organize on a Mac and so on... there are comments to leave, forums to read, blogs to follow (which I haven't done in ages :( , sorry friends, I promise to do better)
Anyway, at least I was able to post a little update...

I can see why you always want to create layouts. These are gorgeous. I love all the details you add, like the stitching. I love how unique and interesting each layout is as well.

I'm glad things have settled down for your family (health wise) so that you can enjoy what is more "normal" for you guys.

Well you are just one busy lady. All this scrapping just takes all of your time!! have fun with it--you are so talented.

Sounds like things are going great at the moment. Your layouts are wonderful (and you will have to let me know which Australian magazine - I only get CK from USA so won't know otherwise).
I can't wait to see what photos you come up with. I am having a great time with photography, lightroom and photoshop atm

Never say Never!

Well, here I am creating my very own blog! I was always very sure I would never get into this blogging "thing", but here I am. I hope you will enjoy finding out a little about my not so interesting life!
