Is anyone around?
I'm relaxing on the couch... or trying to. My tooth hurts like crazy I need to go to the dentist... have been putting it off since I don't have dental coverage. But I think I'm going to need to go Monday or Tuesday at the latest. I wish they were open on Saturdays!

So you guys need to distract me

okay, I just did some brainstorming on new items for my Etsy shop I'm excited! Now just to actually do it...

Rachel- how ya doing?

Steph- LOL, I get sucked into the internet a lot, too. Plus, it's hard to pack for a crop... knowing how much to take & what you'll really need.

Loni- oh Two Peas is doing a list challenge, too?

Morning girls!
I don't feel like doing much today, still in pain from my tooth. I think it will be a pajama day. Stinks because there was a lot I wanted to do today...

What's everyone else up to today?

Ry and his dad and uncle went to the App football game. I wish I were there!!!

I just got back from the great canadian scrapbook carnival! It was super awesome because I got to buy beautiful things without having to pay shipping haha I was thinking of entering a layout for their contest (the winner gets published in the magazine and gets a box of goodies) but maybe next year.

I just uploaded that page I need help with, it feels empty in the bottom part and I don't know what to fill the space with. Help me here?

And thank you for all the lovely comments. They really mean a lot.


And Monica, I hope your tooth feels better. I was supposed to get my wisdom teeth out last year, but it still hasn't happened....

Monica, Hope you feel better soon! Sorry about the tooth. So, what are you doing with your etsy shop. Can you tell us?

Rachel, how fun! I'm glad you're keeping busy.

Christina, that sounds fun. You should submit! Is it too late?

Jen, thanks for the comments on my LOs. We went and got wood today so we are all tired, sore and sunburned. Tomorrow - church.

I updated my LO, so it looks like, well, not orange. Because it wasn't supposed to look that way. Haha.

I have the 29 page challenge printed off. I need to get back to working on some LO's! I got my 99 photos for 99 cents in the mail the other day so I have tons of photos now!!!

I had a great time at my crop today! It is always fun to meet new, local scrappers!

Loni: I try to go to a crop every 2 or 3 months. I may start going more often now though. What kind of tips are you wanting?

Monica: I'm sorry your tooth is still hurting!

Rachel: Hope you are having fun this weekend. Maybe Baby M will come tomorrow!

Thanks Rach and Loni for the suggestions! I think I'll do a little bit of washi, and some circles, but possibly on the bottom left to make it sort of a diagonal.

And Loni, unfortunately it is too late to submit. But I checked out the competition and I think I have a good chance for next year!

Rach, here shipping costs are pretty much the same amount the actual product costs. Like last time I ordred from two peas I spent $32 on actual product and $20 on shipping, absolutely brutal.

Good Morning everyone. I am having a wonderful weekend with Mimi (my mom) in town. Kids are loving her up and finally the little one gave her her first hug and kiss last night. I had a hurt back all yesterday, but thank goodness it's gone now.

I took the kiddos to a party at this gymnastic gym and let me you my little 2 year old love the rings and balance beams. Might sign her up next year. After the party we drive over to Pops which is a great little restaurant dinner place where they have tons and tons of different sodas and drinks. They also have a big neon soda outside that lights up at night. It was fun.

Today and tomorrow I will be sewing like a mad women trying to decide if I want to sew a dress ( never done before) or just make matching skirts for the fair and my DD's bday Tuesday. I am really leaning towards the skirts because it's easier. I was going to attempt the cute little knot dresses, but not sure now.

Monica: I hope your tooth feels better. I am in the same boat with no insurance. For two teeth to get work on it's going to cost me $5k. I am trying to hold it out, but I'll probably get one tooth fixed before December because it's causing constant pain and plus if I get pregnant they won't be able to do any work on it. The other tooth that needs an implant will have to wait until I have insurance. Hope your bill isn't as expensive as mine. Might check into a dental school doing your work if you aren't nervous about students working on your teeth. The teacher is there to help them through it- it's suppose to be a cost saver.

Well kiddos are up and Mimi has the coffee going so I might need to get out of bed. Have a great day everyone. Hope to chat more after Tuesday.

Morning!
I didn't do much yesterday, just took it easy. I did go to my friend's bday party. I wasn't going to go, but changed my mind at the last minute.

The tooth pain is still there... I've just been taking ibuprofen & dealing with it. I hope the dentist can see me tomorrow!

My bro invited my mom & me to the Renaissance Festival with a big group of them today, but think I'm gonna stay home. Hey, at least I will save some money!

Instead, I'm going to scrap & play with Etsy stuff!

Elizabeth- have fun sewing today! I will be using my machine a lot today, too.

Jen- the zoo sounds fun! Have a great time.

Steph- how'd you do at the crop?

Monica: I would love to go to a Ren Faire. I really love going to the one in PA because my friend works there. So much fun, but very spendy. No labor. I had 30 minutes of contractions last night and 30 minutes this morning. Teasing.

Oh. And I don't know if the OB made a mistake or just uses that specific gender pronoun generally, but I definitely heard a specific gender pronoun during the ultrasound. Eeeek! I don't want to get my hopes up for the one she said, but it would be pretty awesome!

Well even braxton hicks will help you get there. Any contractions are good, keep going on those walks! So you may know the gender huh!? Are you annoyed or excited? Does it really matter though? When people say they prefer a gender I'm shocked, BUT I do have an even number of each, so I don't know if I get to have an opinion. Some say girls are easier some say boys are. Everyone's advice cancels each other out, so I'm writing my own book. Not literally. I'm not writing a book - I just don't read the books because they're contradicting and just stress me out.

(Stepping off the soapbox) ahem

I think I am going to try and keep a PL type album for the baby and then insert layouts into the album as I complete them. That way there is a mix of memorabilia and full layouts.

Fun-fun! I've done 6x6 albums and an 8x8 album. It's fun to do those but then I go back and see almost no 12x12s so it's kind of hard to do both. Also, I bought all this pink and yellow stuff for baby G then when she was born I realized she was a purple girl. So she doesn't have a coordinated album!

I LOVE your PL plan. I kind of wish I would have done that but this past year has been so busy! 4 kids is busy! I think I'm going to try doing PL too. I don't know if I can wait for 2013. Oh well. I can't wait to see what you do. It's going to be awesome!

My wedding album is mostly coordinated...

good morning!
Man, I did not want to get out of bed this morning. I still feel like I could go back to sleep! The dentist couldn't get me in today - earliest is Thursday, unless someone cancels tomorrow I have a subbing job for this afternoon, so I will be going to that instead.

That's about it! Yesterday was a boring day at home. I did get my laundry done and some housework. And my brother & his gf came over for dinner, so that was nice.


Rachel- Still thinking about you & Baby! I hope something starts happening soon!

I've been canning tomatoes all morning-sorry no pics this time. I could show you my nasty orange nails though.

Oh Monica, I hope someone cancels! Good luck subbing.

Rachel, It's much easier that way right? I agree, which is why I'm kind of falling of the Lists wagon. (not inspired - no offense!) How is everyone else doing with 30 Days of Lists? Are you back from your appt yet? How did it go?

Hi Caro! You make being a student sound so fun.

Steph, how do you prepare for a crop? How much do you get done at a crop? I'll be going to one on the 28th for 8-12 hours.

Christina, too bad! Yes, do it for sure next time.

Jen, how was the zoo?

Elizabeth, how fun to have your mom there. Have fun sewing! I hope whatever you decide to do works out.

Lizzie, I got my prints too. They should keep me busy for a while.

Alright ladies. I had a great appointment today. Painful but great. She aggressively swept my membranes and stretched me from 2 to 3 cm. I should have a baby in 24-48 hours. If not, I will be admitted to Labor and Delivery on Thursday and start the induction process.

So baby by Friday!!

I placed my order (thanks again ladies!!!) and couldn't wait to find out boy or girl, so I ordered a 6x6 stack of Crate Little Bo Peep and Little Boy Blue. I also got some journaling cards that will go nicely in the baby album!! I will take a picture of all of my stuff when it arrives!!

Oh my Rachel, sending you tons of healthy baby vibes!! I hope that the bebe comes soon!
I didn't want to know for my third, I feel at work and since I was high risk and only 22 weeks I went for an ultrasound. It was 2am in the morning when I got it and the Dr. said oh he's fine! Kicking strong, looks like he's gonna be into sports! He grinned at us and I gave him the death stare and the hubs explained that we did NOT want to know the gender! hahaha
My sister in law just had her baby late July. We didn't know the whole time and it was MURDER on me! I mean I gotta know so I can make the bebe cute things!! We all thought it was going to be a boy, and then little Ximena was born and the whole family rushed to the stores to buy everything pink and purple!!
Okay baby talk over! hahahaa
