New Year New Focus

With the start of the new year my plan is to use my blog for more of my creativity to make is more interesting. Here is a start.  This is the layout I did for my mother-in-law's Christmas present.  It is the first time the whole family is together in years.

Well the boys are back to school and it has been a busy month. I went to a weekend crop with some friends and completed another 30 pages bringing Vincent's book up to date. I then worked on a few projects that next friday night with another friend.

We poured a concrete countertop in our kitchen. We have a few issues with it, but I am hoping they all work out ok. Vincent seems to have the most confidence in the project. We worked hard on the pour and now it is a wait and see game. I wanted to follow with doing one in my bathroom but I am not sure now. My hope is to have a kitchen back by the end of October. I am getting tired of quick meals on the grill.

There is a lot going on at work making it stressful and hard to concentrate at times. I am not hitting my crafts enough at home to relax. Working space it tight right now.

Busy Month

Wow August has been a busy month so far.
I have been wanting a new countertop in my kitchen since I will not be expanding it. I have done alot of research on them and I have decided to have one out of concrete. I have spent the last two week pouring samples to get the color and look that I want. I am up to 12 samples so far. There is one that I definately don't want to use. The color is so bad. I have decided to try to marble two colors together and to try a white sand. I do not like the gray sand showing through. If all goes well I will be pouring it next weekend.
School starts soon for the boys so time has been spent getting them ready.
This weekend we had our yearly department picnic and it was a good time again. It is always a nice was to get together with co-workers and it not having to do with work.
Today was way to hot for me. It is suppose to be really hot for the next few days. I have not done much scrapbooking lately but I have to get back into the grove.

WOW it has been a long time

It has been a long time since I have posted. Well we have been on the move and very busy. I went to a great scrapbooking weekend with my girlfriend from high school in the spring and we are going back in September. I was able to do 31 layouts in a weekend. What great fun and everyone there was great also.

In May we went to Key west and the boys loved it. I will post some layouts when they are done.

Today I made my first digi layout. It is a simple one but it was fun. I used the autum kit from Have a great weekend
