Weekly Entry

Here is my weekly Cricut Circle entry!  I forced myself not to mat the picture, and originally I was going to use a title and journal but I don’t think it needs it.  Although I hit on the 3 requirement (pink, lace, jewels) it still needs something, I just don’t know what…I’ll have to think on it for awhile.

10-14 Contest

Circle Weekly Entry: French Manor Cart



This is my first ever entry for any contest…and the picture just doesn’t do it justice.  I have black bazzill cardstock, the mirror and corner are both from French Manor and I have beads for lights.  The mirror and design are a shimmery silver and the lighter color around the  mirror is a soft lavender.

The Old and The New

Last Week:
Spent time with extended family...nice.
Purchased tickets to go to Utah.
Enjoyed a light spattering of rain today - first of the season!
Completed training to volunteer at the animal shelter! Lots of fun!!

Upcoming Week:
The week is empty - let's not confuse it with the possibility of quiet. No, not true, BUT nothing out of the ordinary. Typical driving here, there, and everywhere!

I want to resurrect some of my hobbies and my future dreams...everything has been put on hiatus since Ace came along last October. I've never pretended to be one of those moms that can handle fifty things at once and will suck it up and take their kids everywhere with them. No, I'm not one of those. I hole up at home and focus on surviving the new chaos on a sleep deprived lifestyle.
Now that my babe is almost a year old, it's time to carve out some time for myself, especially since my hubby is dying to play music again. The problem is, I've only dabbled in scrapbooking the past couple years - I used to know everything about everything, and now I'm so far behind. Their are tools and "stuff" that I just have no idea what they are and what they do. I'm so behind the learning curve, it's not even funny.
So, what to do, what to do...spend a butt load of money - buy the Cricut Imagine, try to attend a swarm in Utah (last time I was in Utah was for a CKU many many years ago). What's a swarm? No idea. what goes on? No idea. But, what better way to relearn everything....just jump in and give it a go!
