Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hoping that everyone had a wonder Christmas! It's been a while since I last posted. Life has been very hectic this month.

First we had several functions at school, projects to mark, exams to mark and grade. I finally managed to take two weeks off work but still have to go in a couple of times -- the joys of being in management I guess.

The week before Christmas was spent cleaning, painting the spare room (we're converting it into a play room for the girls) and more cleaning. It's our turn to have the entire families (mine, his and my sis' in-laws). So, we're having over 40 people in our teeny tiny house! Good news is that I don't really have to cook since it's a potluck. Though it was a bit stressful, it worked out really well, and we managed to spend time with everyone, as well as some friends prior to the party.

This week is still busy, we're still cleaning and prepping the play room. I'm also in the midst of re-organizing my scraproom and can't wait til this mess is done!! I'm tired of it, and I haven't been able to scrap for weeks! Can't wait to go to Sonja's place to play in January.

Hope everyone else is enjoying their holidays, and to everyone, "HAPPY NEW YEAR"

Scrapbooking Blitz!

It's been a crazy two weeks -- lots of stuff going on at work, and then last week, a major snowstorm. This meant that the kids went to stay at the grandparent's houses so that I don't have to drive them over in the morning. Not only did it mean uninterrupted sleep through the night, but would also give me free time in the evenings to play!

On the Monday, I got to stay home as they canceled school on account of the snow. This meant I got to scrapbook ALL day long! And since DH was busy helping a friend move, I didn't even have to cook dinner!! But I was productive and managed to complete 3 projects -- 2 for a local store and 1 for a manufacturing company in the USA. I can't post the pics of the project for the LSS, but here is the link to my gallery in the US

Though I did have to work the rest of the week, I was able to play in the evenings for a few hours (what a treat!).

Last night I headed over to Sonja's place to play and made a gorgeous layout that she had created. I will post a picture as soon as I can. It was a really fun evening as we scrapped, chatted and ate our way until 1am!!! As this will be a monthly thing, I can't wait until next month to see what other fabulous project she has designed for us! Here's a link to her site -- if you're in the lower mainland, you may want to join us!
