I've been playing!!

Mariah had soccer in Perryville this weekend so between games I met Cynde and we went up and saw Debbie at O'Dear What a Memory in Ste. Genevieve. I had so much fun buying (don't tell my hubby)!! She has a great store and I found lots of new tools - which I justified buying by needing those so that I can use them to help me use up all this stuff I have left from the store. (totally rational right?!) I had to get a cuttlebug (Julie it's all your fault) Anyway I have been playing and hopefully I will get some pictures on here really soon!! I am also working super hard getting everything ready for the community garage sale at the Osage Center which is Saturday, Nov. 8th 8 a.m. - noon and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

*Oh and Mariah's team did super!!! They ended up 2nd in the tournament but it took overtime and a shoot out to decide the championship game. -I have now been elected the worst scrappin' mom ever because she was chosen to kick PK's in both shoot outs on Sunday and guess who didn't even have a camera. - She made her shots :) so I will just have to journal about it and use the team photo from the trophy presentation!!

Hope everyone else had a great weekend too! AND - Let me know which blogs you are finding inspiration on.

And if I can do it so can you!! The layout that I posted for the challenge was a winner! (by random selection - not talent he he he)! Does that inspire anyone?!!? This is so much fun! Come on guys check out the challenges listed here in some of the "more inspiration" and try it! When you do, leave a comment here with a link so everyone can see what everyone else is doing!! It will be a great way to stay in touch with each other!! (AND if you find other blogs with card or layout challenges, leave a comment about those as well)

Have a scrappy weekend!!

I got the JOB!!!

Yeah!! I will be the new "senior administrative assistant" for the Autism Center!!! I am super excited about it! I feel that this is where God is moving me and I am just so happy that I finally know. I am not always overly patient when waiting for direction so after I felt Him saying it was time to close the store, I immediately started praying okay but what's next!! I thought I would find out last week - but I found out today (on the 3rd day of our Revival). God has continued to try to teach me patience (hopefully someday I'll learn so I can quit being taught!!! ;)

Anyway, I know this is not the kind of inspiration you expected - but maybe knowing God leads is just the inspiration you needed today!!! Proverbs 3:5,6

Layout for Challenge at Triple the Sketch!

Hey everyone - challenges are a great way to get us inspired!! Check out the link to Triple the Sketch!! It is an amazing blog by a really neat Christian lady who gives us a new sketch every week and does challenges every so often FOR PRIZES!!! *** If you play along leave me a link to your entry when you leave the link over there!! Good luck!

A New Blog

I thought it best to start a new blog since my scrapbook club is officially over :( I am keeping that one in case anyone is behind (which is where I usually am!!) and wants to be able to look back over those ideas when they get a chance to work on their kits!!

Anyway... I always scrap more when I am challenged or accountable so I thought starting a blog and posting layouts and cards (maybe some challenges and RAK's in the future) would be a great way to start. Cynde and I are going to be making and selling some layouts and cards at the craft show at the Bavarian Hall in November so I really have to get busy!! But first we have to clean out lots of stuff so we have room to scrap so... check out the community garage sale at the Osage on November 8th!!!

My second idea for this blog, since it is all about INSPIRATION would be for you to post comments with links to your ideas!!! You know I am a little slow with my scrappin and working with 12 two year olds all day has me a little tired lately!! SO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add your links!!!
