Hi girls,

So yeah.. the last couple of days went slightly different than planned.. I thought it was going to be a relaxed weekend. But then on friday my father was hospitalized again Apparently he has an internal bleeding and yesterday and today have been filled with several examinations, but so far they don't know yet what it is It's tiring and it's stressful and I feel like I lack energy even to do the things I like (like scrapping).. Luckily my boy has been great the past few days Took me out for a delicious lunch today to bring some distraction..

Anyway.. Thought I would be able to catch up on some chatting this weekend (because wow you girls have been a chatty bunch!!!), but sadly no... I hope everything is alright with you girls, it sure looks like you all are having fun and hopefully i'll be able to join in again soon!

Have a good rest of this day!

Okay ladies I need your help. Been messing with this layout and almost done, but stuck. What is missing? I wanted to add journaling but can't decide if I should do it directly on the base or add a cream color to journal on. Or no journaling or all. Please leave me a comment in the gallery. Thanks. Ps I take the good and the bad feedback.

@Rachel : I don't have any brother but a lot of cousins, so here are their names, you might get inspired : Gregoire, Jeremie, Cedric, Ludovic, Quentin, Guillaume, Martin, Nicolas, Thibaut, Theo, Enzo, Valentin, Marko, Philippe, Thomas, Vincent, Gabriel, Maxime, Gael and Matthieu
for my uncles : Olivier, Henri, Hubert, Jacques, Gerard, Jerome, Marc, Luc, Bernard, Valdir (he is mexican), Alain...
while writing those names down, I realised I like Timotee.
how does you scrap place looks like now ?

@Caroline, your little getaway sounds great !

@Christina : I think that is the main reason my bf does not want me to move in, because he saw what a mess I can do in my room when I craft

@Monica : two lovely LOs !

@Dee : all my prayers go for your dad

@Elizabeth : it will be easier if you put the link of your LO here

In the end I did no crafting, but because my essay is nearly finish (my housemate would like to discuss about it tomorrow after her day at work) so that means that tomorrow I am free from it !! and I even might receive my parcel with the PL pockets (exciting !!!)
This evening I went for a 2 hours walk with bf ! he has a lot of things going on and his 4 months on tuesday at work and he is worrying way too much.... And on my side it is the same for uni, so the pair of us were not really happy bunnies... but it was nice to talk and walk.

it is nearly 11pm, time to go to bed
have a great afternoon/evening

I ended up taking a break for a bit. We got rid of cable, but I did find an oldies type of channel, so I watched I Love Lucy with Dinky for a while Now I'm sitting down to get my 30 Lists album ready!

gah, everyone on FB is talking about cooking out... I so wish we were cooking out, or invited to a bbq! Sounds so good right now...

Rach- good idea to start on your scrap room - you know where your priorities are Do you have an entire dedicated room? Funny about the contraction! How would you know if this is your first baby?

Dee- So sorry to hear about your dad I hope he has a quick & easy recovery. That's very sweet of your bf to take you to lunch.

Caro- hey, at least your essay is finished! That's always a good feeling.

Christina- oh yeah, I forgot you're from Oregon! Where in OR again? I just came from there not long ago... spent 3 weeks in Eugene. I miss it already I'm actually considering moving there in the next few years. Both of my brothers are wanting to move back, too.

Elizabeth- what about strips of journaling on cream cardstock? I think it would look really good along the right side, on top of the brown.

Dee: Sorry to hear about your father. Healing thoughts headed his way.

Monica: I have a craft room that will double as an office space for now. It will eventually be a guest bedroom and/or big kids room.

Elizabeth: I think some journaling in a white pen or on cream strips would look really nice on the brown part of the layout.

Boy oh boy!
My allergies are so horrible today. I had planned on being cooped up, scrapping, and having a great time. Instead... I was laid up in my bed and on the couch with a wad of toilet paper wrapped around my nose praying for the kiddos to stop fighting haha.
Fun huh?

@Jen congrats on the new niece. I stopped counted mine at 6. I'm ready for a nephew to come along.

Okay why didn't I think of that idea for journal strips on cream cardstock. Did that before and loved it. Thanks Monica and Rachel.

@lizzie: sry ur allergies had you glued to the bed. My house is one allergy pool between hubby and kids. And girl I hear ya on the kids fighting. Been working through that all day but thank goodness I was able to clean my room and play with my cricut.
Well off to finish the layout and clean up my mess. Chat later ladies. Have fun tomorrow with, friends and family!

Caro, my poor boy hasn't found out how messy I can be yet He's in for a surprise! Also, I'm so jealous you got to take a nice walk with your bf. SOO JEALOUS haha

Steph! I'll be around scrapping!

Monica, we have an art walk too! I love checking all of those things out, sometimes they're super inspiring.

Rachel, oh my goodness a possible contraction? best of luck from me!

Sparklin, hugs from me to you and your dad. Internal bleeding is scary scary stuff.

Tonight I went to a big concert one of the radio stations in my city put on. We saw fun., Linkin Park, Young and the Giant, and Silversun Pickups. It was so darned good. I got tickets for free because my best friend had some sort of connection.

Hi everyone
I think most of you are in deep sleep. I am already awake, dressed and went food shopping ! Uni start in a week.......so scary.....
I was hoping for my PL pockets to be here by now but still nothing, and my other parcel from france arrived so I guess it won't be for today...

@Elizabeth : nice LO, I left a comment agreeing with Monica but according to the time you must already be finish with your LO

@Christina (cmarieray) : Do you have a nickname, because there is already a Christina among us (hodgepodge)

@Monica : don't worry about cooking out, here we don't even have the possibility to do it...the weather is SO bad (but not raining yet!!). I can't wait to see your mini-album for 30lists
my essay is not good enough yet, according to my housemate and my bf, so I am going to have to work on it much more tonight ....

@Rachel : Love the picture of you craft place on I. !! Are you doing any scrapping at the moment waiting for the baby ? did you prepare a baby album or nothing yet ? or are you more busy with getting the house ready ?

@Lizzie : good luck with allergies ! I know the problem, sometimes I can finish a box of 150 tissues in one day... glassy eyes and big red nose !! the doc gave me that, it is in self-service in english pharmacy, I take one everyday when I get up and it is a saviour !!!

@Jen : welcome to Lily in our crazy world !

@Stephanie : I am here ready to scrap (because I don't want to redo my essay before my housemate gives me the details of what is wrong)

@Christina (hodge) : don't be jealous !! You can do a 6 hour drive to walk with him !!! Question : how did you met him ??? because 6 hours distance is not idealic ? (but love does not think that way...)

ok, enough talking time to scrapbook
shout when you are awake !!!

@Rachel: Good to hear I'm not the only one reporting myself. How is sleeping at the new house going? Anymore contractions??? I'm excited!!!

@Caroline: That's so cool! One of my friends went back to do a 3year undergrad in primary teaching. Shes going into her second year and she loves it.

@Lizzie: She's from Fort Worth but lives about 45mins outside DFW. I've been to Houston and Galvastone. Haha, that's crazy that you were sent to speech therapy for having an Irish accent. How exactly does a slurred R sound? Is that a regional Irish thing? I don't think I've heard anybody do it.

@Caro: Lucky!!! I'm so jealous! I'd love to see the Olympic park. We don't have a summer here either, just a few nice days sprinkled here and there.

@Monica: Oh yes, Irish people in general are normally crazy. In a good way though, not in the psycho killer kind of way. Sophia is such a cutie! Love your layouts, I'm especially enjoying the Fleetwood Mac reference.

@Elizabeth, Emma, CMarie: Welcome. I'm Lisa, 25 this month, from Ireland. My SO, Deedee, lives in Texas. I like music and books and I scrap digitaly.

@Dee: I hope your dad is ok

@Jen: Congratulations on the birth of your niece

@Hodge: That concert sounds awesome, I'm jealous

It's my birthday month, hoolay! It is Pride week here this week so I'm busy busy attending every event that I can. I have news, I'm starting a new college course next week. Multimedia production! There is no work in midwifery and I'm sick of sitting on my bum. I hope it might lead to me maybe designing digital elements that Two Peas will sell because they are so amazing

Lisa: silly but what is SO? We just got back from Texas for the whole summer and is moving back in May for work. I have always wanted to visit Ireland. One day when the kids get older I want a trip around the world.

hi everyone (again)

another LO finish ! but does not fit the 29 challenge...
San Juan Bautista

@Lisa : this is a good idea, to study something else for the moment, and it is ambitious for 2peas !!

@Rachel : do you have tons of list about what you have to do before the baby arrives ? I wish I could help you getting some stuff done

@Cmarie : great, this is better !! 2 Christina, it is too confusing !!

Hi ladies!! I know only a handful of you will remember me, but my name is Jamie. I use to participate on here all of the time but life got in the way and it was either message board or blog. So I decided to blog.

Sorry to hijack the thread but I wanted to quickly ask if anyone here is 28? If so, I'm looking for other 28 year olds to participate in a scrappy blog hop.

More details here

I hope everyone is well!


cheers & besos

Caro: We have only really half-unpacked. My goal is to get the house presentable for what I imagine will be a lot of company in the coming weeks. Also, all of the baby's stuff isn't here (crib, glider/rocker, dresser). Sooooo much to do.

I hear reinforcements at the door. See y'all later!

holy geez, I feel like I missed a lot since last night.

I'm definitely not an early bird, so you will not see me up at 4am I had a hard time dragging myself out of bed today. I've been so tired lately!

I cancelled plans with my cousins today, so I will be around all day! I need to make a custom order for my Etsy shop, but otherwise I plan to scrap.

Rachel- That's awesome about your craft room/office. aww, bummer you aren't able to sleep. Hopefully you can get some stuff done before Baby comes, but hopefully he/she comes soon!

Lizzie- ugh, my allergies have been horrible, too. I need to get more Claritin D... that seems to help me the best.

Jen- Congrats on your niece!! How exciting

Christina- okay, I've heard of Coquille. We went to Coos Bay last summer. This summer, we stuck around Newport and Florence. We actually stayed in a cute little cabin at the Waldport/Newport KOA... I LOVED it! oh, and you will see many more OR pages from me soon I just printed all of them from this summer to scrap.

Christina/Hodge- I love art walks, too, and find them inspiring! The whole atmosphere is awesome, too. OMG, that concert sounds awesome!! I've wanted to see Silversun in concert for a while. And I bet the other bands were awesome!

Caro- Don't be scared for university! I'm confused, though... what is your essay for if you haven't started school yet? Your roommate & bf sound really critical of your essay! I would be so sad if I couldn't ever cookout because of the weather... that's what we love to do here!

Elizabeth- I'm glad you figured out what to do with that layout! 30 Days of Lists is a class that a lot of us decided to take. They give you a different prompt every day for a list to make... people are keeping track in journals, digi layouts, or mini albums (like me).

Lisa- LOL, the Irish people in MY family are psycho crazy though But, yes, I agree that in general Irish people are just fun crazy! Happy birthday month I'm excited for you about the Multimedia class... I hope that works out for you!

Jamie- hey girl! Long time, no see. I've been seeing your posts at SC more & more though. Sadly (or luckily, I guess!), I won't be 28 for another year. Good luck with your blog hop, though!


WHEW! Caught up... for now. I'm off to get crafty!

Wow you girls wake up early! Haha I'm treasuring my sleep-in time!

Caro, haha I wish! now that we're getting into school I have no idea how often I'll see him. We met because we both worked overnight camps 2 years ago. The camps are Ukrainian dance camps and he came up for the two weeks, once to be a counsellor and once to actually dance. I was just a counsellor both weeks And the distance sucks. But we've made it work for a while.

Lisa, it was awesome! And when's your birthday? Mine is in September too!

Steph, Linkin Park was the best part. I didn't really enjoy the crazy moshing crowd so my friend and I moved back a little. Luckily I'm tall so I could see over pretty much everyones heads.

@Monica : don't be confuse ! lol (I was too, and the subject is still really a mistery for me) Uni starts on monday the 10th but we already have some homeworks : an essay for the 21st and read a massive book. Because the essay is not supposed to be on the experience we are going to have in our 1st placement (4 days in a primary school, next week after the 1st day of uni) I prefer to have it finish before (otherwise I am going to be influenced by what I saw. For the book I started beginning of july and gave up.... it is boring and unreadable...

@Christina : Now I understand, is there no solution for you to go to uni near where he leaves or him near you ?

Ok my housemate explains some of the problem on my essay (I am still not entirely answering the question and talking a bit too much about the systems...) so it is time to re-work on it.....

have a good time

Caro, he's planning on going to my university when he finishes his Undergrad because it offers the program he's looking at. He goes to a small university, and I go to the largest one in our province so I'm not moving. He also has to find out how he'll be able to pay for living up here. So sooner or later he'll be moving up here, not just because I'm up here haha

I just uploaded 3 LOs!

@Rachel and Christina : really nice LOs girls, I commented all of them

I spent more than 2 hours talking with bf about my essay, I am still not their yet and I have to rethink completely how to approach it. When my housemate arrived she also helped us to figures things out, and I just burst ino tears at one point... too much stress already and school has not even started....
They gave me an order of not looking at it anymore for a day or 2 !! good like that I can scrapbook tomorrow and wednesday, bf and I are spending the day in the Olympic park !!! So I will work on it thursday.

nothing else to say
I think I am going to take a shower and then bed with a movie (it is nearly 10pm here)

Caro: I think that sounds like good advice. Put the essay down for a while and do something else (scrapbook!). That should help a ton!

Thank you for praise. I'm going to catch up on praise when I get hooked up with internet later this week. Too hard to praise on my phone.

Hey ladies. Busy fun long day. The reason I got up so early was bc I was hot and had to fix the air, take oldest to potty so no accidents (even though she has gotten better- 4 years old) and once I was up my stomach was growling so I had a granola and the rest is history. It's hard to jump right back into sleep when I am hot so friends episode and the couch helped. Well I hope everyone had very productive day. I had fun taking pictures of my daughters and can't wait to upload them and scrap. I am very tired from my busy day so tomorrow after my insanity workout I'll be uploading layouts all day until dance. Chat with you ladies soon. Good night!

So I was making dinner and our stove died.

At least I washed, folded/hung up, and put away Ryan's clothes so day one as a housewife wasn't a complete fail!

Well, I attempted to scrap some more tonight, but just wasn't feeling it. I did find 4 layouts I had done before I left for Oregon I forgot about, so I put some finishing touches on those & will have them to upload this week!

I think I'm going to go lounge on the couch & start a new book before I go to bed. Night everyone!

Looks like there was lots of scrapbooking going on here! I...sat around lazily most of the day! Ok....so I crocheted while I sat here lazily.

DH suprised DD and I with season tickets to a children's theater group in Chicago that we have enjoyed. So now we have to pick our dates to see the shows...oh darn!

Rain and shine my friends ! It is a new day !!!!
it is actually 11.20am in London and I have been up for a while

I tried to enrol online for uni, too many complicated questions
so I am going to wait for bf to come back from work (I don't want to do any mistake...)

Still waiting for my PL pockets to arrive, this waiting is excruciating...

I am not allowed to work on my essay, I try to enrol but have to wait for tonight, I checked all my emails, I am dressed ... so I think I am allowed to craft !!!!

Well I just finished my Insantiy workout and after a shower I feel great. Later I am sure I will sore, but I am hoping the results are worth the pain. It was fun and sad to do. My youngest had been throwing up all night and morning and since she was throwing up everything she ate she was super pale so that broke my heart to see her throwing up. It was fun because my oldest loves working out with DH and I and since DH is under the weather with allergies she was my buddy. Got some great pictures of her doing some pretty hard moves.

I am hoping that once I knock out homeschooling I can attempt to take pictures of all my layouts or some and upload later this week. Hoping to anyway. I am also going to attempt to clean out my closet which holds all of my scrapbooking,clothes, scuba suit, old kids clothes, genealogy work, and other stuff. It's packed.

I hope everyone has a good day at work, home, and with whatever else you have going on. For me I am hoping to have an excellent day with my daughters and try to keep my energy level up. I'll be on a little later in the afternoon around nap.

PS. Has anyone checked out the gallery lately. There is so much cute stuff in there and I find myself bookmarking and liking more than I am crafting. I am loving all the new techniques that are out and one day I will attempt to try, but right now I still consider myself a beginner.
