January and February Mini Albums

June Mini Album For GGS Club

Feeling Frustrated Today!

Today I am feeling very frustrated. It seems the more I try to learn about blogging and iphoto, imovie and In design, (just to name a few) the more I realize I do not know!!! Yikes... trying to manage settings and stuff. How do other people do it? Do you take classes, or do you just keep surfing and reading and surfing and reading?

I am sure eventually I will get things figured out. Sigh! Until then I will just keep moving along and try to remember that the turtle won the race.

I am also recovering from yet another oral surgery. It has not been my year... medically speaking. I am into my 4th oral surgery and have one left to go. Sigh. And, I just recently I fractured my foot. This has definitely slowed me down. So, OK... from head to foot I have had a few set backs. But it is not going to stop me. No way! I am going to pursue and and have a incredible, successful year. That a girl! Go get 'em!

Mini Album for Laura

I got Laura's album made for the GGS club! It is a patriotic album. I made me one too. I love celebrating the fourth of July, and I am passionate about anything Americana. And I am one of those who gets a lump in my throat whenever I hear Lee Greenwood sing I am Proud to be an American/God Bless the USA. Last November I lost my nephew who was killed in the line of duty. I have a deep gratitude in my heart for those who serve our country. God Bless you Charlie! I love you and I miss you!

I joined a Scrapbooking Club... Girls Gone Scrappy!

Earlier this month while having the blues or somewhat of a mid-life crisis, I mentioned to my sweet hubby that I felt as though I needed to belong to a club, or get a pen pal, or get a new friend...or something! He suggested joining a scrapbook club. At first I thought his suggestion sounded a bit far-fetched, but then I recalled reading something about a club on Marion's blog and decided to check it out.

I contacted Marion, feeling a bit skeptical as the spots were basically full, but she e-mailed me back with the good news- I was in. I paid my dues and made it just in time to receive the June kit- a Tim Holtz kit filled with goodies to grunge and distress. So now I am officially a member of the GGS (Girls Gone Scrappy club. Hooray for me! Every month each member gets a kit from Marion to make a mini album, and we also exchange a mini album we make from our own stash for a member of the club. For the month of June I was assigned to exchange a mini album with Laura.
