I"ve been a crazy creative fool...

which means that my other stuff is being semi- neglected but since Jon has been home last few days I just want to enjoy.. he is waiting for his call back and then I will be alone again :( so I"m kind of enjoying the routine break... who needs super clean floors and no dirty laundry, right? lol
I just got a box from the Diner with DT stuff and this months sponsor is Prima... oooo I cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Soooo want to dive in right now but since I"ve been creativing like crazy, I need to go feed my family!
Im also excitedly waiting the other DT box that should be coming right from Deja Views Scrap Talk current sponsor.. .that should be fun.. always love their stuff!

nothing visual to post today.. but will be back soon when I get all my creations uploaded and posted....

family is good, kids and dog well, Ryans hives are gone and he has been super happy, very talkative and it appears we have entered another period of growth for him... that is always wonderful to experience since they are so far and few between!

Hope you are all well...
Peace,
kim

someone talk me out of it....











heee heee heee.. please!!!!!!!!????? A scrappy friend... please tell me why Im crazy and all of a sudden inspired to compete (once again) for Creating Keepsakes HOF!!! Why Why must I torture myself like this??? lol but I really do have some great ideas this year if only I can sit down and finish the layouts.. they are all started, info written up etc... but I always feel like I just have to wait for the deadline (in case I might drastically improve in the next two weeks/! lol)




I never have a chance in h e double hockey sticks but you never know... I mean 2 LOAD friends of mine won last year so maybe, huh???




I've also been like a crazy woman totally into hybrid scrapping lately... how come you digi ladies never talked me into this before... I just downloaded like 4 awesome kits and printed out all kinds of papers, embellies etc... and the fonts... wow... how exciting to have that instant gratification!




I really need to get back into everyday scrapbooking...




















... I have read them both and they both change the way I scrap....




LOve them as an artist and highly recommend reading and re reading them...




speaking of Ali... on her blog, she is doing this cool weekend project thing ...check it out http://www.aliedwards.typepad.com/




.. I printed out my book pages and will love doing this!








since its been awhile... here is some recent work...

I"ve.......

been busy with keeping up the house... and I have been doing alot with the kids lately which is not allowing any energy left for scrapping (even at night)... been doing most of my computer time here on the lap top which doesn't let me allow access to my pse files (pics and layouts)
so I"m not able to post... but I do have some new things to share... hopefully tomoroow when the kids get back to school.....

Have a good holiday think of peace, friends and freedom today!

Peace,
kimo

kids are home today....







for a snow day! Unfortunately, its that big slushy heavy mixed bag of snow/sleet rain.... not the soft fluffy stuff... but its okay by me.... still looks prettier than viewing my million leaves I haven't picked up from fall (in the backyard) hopefully the snow will stick around for awhile as winter flew back in after last week of "spring"... crazy weather but just happy to have the winter back for awhile at least!






think it might be a scrappy day today!



Jons folks took us out to lunch yesterday and then treated the kids to a new toy at Ocean state Job lot so they are busy playing... I have some catching up to do scrappy wise.. been making cards but so much scrapping to do.... just the day for it! :)






posted above are some newest creations... enjoy

what has been










occupying my mind lately is Autism stuff and Ry..... He has this rash (from a virus?? that is lingering) and of course it would be a novel to write all about what an ordeal it is to be co-ercing/forcing/convincing him into taking some Benadryl as directed from the physician...






the joy is that Jon surprised us and came home for two days in between this two week trip so that was very helpful .






All this has made me get busy filling out the million and one forms necessary (not to mention the essay) I"m writing to finish up the application for respite care...






Not looking forward to having peoples in my home again but its time.... we are all feeling very burdened... and I know Ryan will benefit from services (extra) in the end... its all just soooo hard.. no matter which way we choose!












I really have managed to keep up with my to do lists, and my word... intergrate....






I am continually taking in all the info in my brain.. writing it down... and doing... and it feels good...






some things making me happy lately....






this little mug I found at CVS... comes with its own spoon.... LOVE IT!
























































































lots and lots of card making lately....




peace,


Kim

wonderment....















I can't believe its been a week since I last posted! Yikes... where does the time go???





well, with the kids back to school, me back at Curves working out, Jon heading out of town and Ryan with a mysterious rash... life kinda got in the way...





I have been doing so many things and still managing to do my responsibilities, rest and relax too...





I chose my word for the year......Integrate...(not interrogate) as my husband jokes! lol





But integrate.... mix, mingle, do, advocate,combine etc.... and I think its a great focusing and positive word for this year and I'm definitely living up to the challenge with that....










Here are my projects for Scrap Diner DT January....... ps. did I say how much I love that place??? She sent me a bunch of 7 gypsies, and Daisy D's stuff... how me is that??!!!!





So, it was pretty easy making some awesome stuff when you get sent some awesome product to work with!





thanks for peeking and I promise to come back BEFORE another week is up! lol
