Christmas layout.

Back to my style. Somewhere along the way I stopped doing with fell in love with, well no more! I just love shabby chic style of layering and lots of textures and machine stitching. Here is a layout I did this week just for me! I think I started doing what I thought everyone wanted, what I thought everyone was doing. But it never felt right! SO back to me, now that I have time for me, time to do what I love, I am going back to what I love.

3 Prima Paintable classes I offer currently

I used Marvey Glossy embossing markers on this one then heat embossed with clear powder, I love how it turned out! In real life the colors and the raised gloss is just stunning!

I used just plain markers on this one, what a simple sweet layout in 10 minutes!

This one I tea dyed with instant coffee singles bags then used Pentel Aquash water colors over it! It also shows Prima journaling paper, Prima Ribbons, Prima flowers, Prima Rubons and crystals.

Wow it's been a while!

I have been so busy! I appologize and plan to do much better now that summer is over at updateing this thing on a daily basis!

Here is what I have been doing! Here is my new studio in the basement! We started out just putting in new flooring because I hated cleaning up carpet after a long scrap session! But then we decided to paint the stairs which lead to the basement and I have always wanted RED! We went with just two walls being red because I didn't want to over power the room! But after I re hung all my shelving and things most of the red is covered up! I guess I could have gone with all red and it wouldn't have mattered after all! We also then decided to re do the ceiling and Robin decided to paint the old track for the drop ceiling red also and with the new ceiling tiles I just love how it turned out!

7 bad habbits!!

This is a blog challenge from a wonderful site I belong to. Check out thier monthly kits at 2Jills!

This weeks challenge is to list 7 good or bad habbits you have!
Well it's much easier for me to list the bad ones than to think of good ones!

1. I let the laundry pile up way too high.
2. I am addicted to the Gene Simons Family Jewels show.
3. I procrastinate assignments till the last minute, but I work best under pressure.
4. I have to get moving right a way in the morning or the whole day is shot if I sit down on the couch.
5. I have so many ideas and plans and never fallow through with them.
6. When DH askes if I will go to the Hardware store with him, which is daily. The first think I think about is a cand bar! Now I can't leave the store with out one?
7. I have lost touch with so many good friends for lack of picking up the phone.
