This challenge is for those who scrap slowly and need encouragement to keep scrapping all month or those who want a little encouragement to continue scrapping. It is great for those new to Challenges on 2peas and is a fun place to come chat with other scrappers.

1. Post a layout each week, or four layouts per month. Mark the box for Pokey Peas as you post your layout. Put a link to your layouts on this Pokey Peas Thread for February 2014. (If you don't know how to post a link, leave a note to me on the Pokey Peas Thread or peamail me and I will help you.)

2. This can be combined with any other challenges and can be paper, digital or hybrid scrapping. These can be cards, layouts or altered items.

3. Please leave praise for others on the thread as your time allows. We all love comments on our layouts.

4. Have fun with this! This should be a "no pressure" challenge. Just post what you finish whether it is one layout or a dozen. Come chat with the group as time permits. We love to welcome new Peas. There are no prizes for this challenge, just a chance to enjoy the works of other Pokey Peas.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

NEW MEMBERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!!!

Where are you back from Nylene??? I don't remember you saying anything about going somewhere, but I may be mistaken!!!! The old brain is not what it used to be!!!!
Thank you for the new thread-always ready to go for a new month. Here's the link to my newest page for the PL

Week Five

Here are 3 cards I made for the grands and DH

Valentines

Debi I hope your bronchoscopy goes well. Are you allowed to drive after that? I hope someone is going with you. Usually they give you meds which making driving out of the question.


Hugs, Cindy

Thanks for the fresh February thread Nylene and Welcome back.

It is so sunny here today, it made me think of flowers so I used an overlay on a page that had a beautiful sunflower.

We celebrated dd's big bd Saturday,although she wants to ignore the year,I had a wonderful time and she seemed pleased herself. She is the oldest of my children and I cannot believe the years have just flown by. How does that happen!!

Well, I had a lot of things on my to-do list today.... and I am not making much head way,lol!!

I am hoping the weather prediction is wrong for tomorrow evening... which says possibly a large snowfall. It is so over for me.... but then I cannot control Mother Nature!!

Well, I need to get serious about doing something constructive today,before it is over. Soon Come Pam

It's nice to be home, but we had some wonderful days at Disneyland with Angie and family. Our knees and hips may never be the same, but it was worth it!

Debi, how did the bronchoscopy go today. I hope they can find the root of the problem and get you going on the road to recovery. How I wish you had an "Eric" there to help you. While we were gone, he sent his electricians to our home to install a light over Steve's computer. He is having difficulty seeing there in the corner. I guess Eric didn't keep his key when he left home, so got his sister to let the workmen in. So we came home to a new kitchen light fixture and didn't have to do anything or even live with the mess while it was done. Wish I could send his "guys" to fix your light.

Cindy, congrats on your being published. What page are you on? I looked at the first few, but need to go back and really study the issue. Wish it were paper so I could cuddle up with a blanket and enjoy it. Thanks for posting a card for Kelly and Ron's anniversary. You are so sweet.

Kelly, the weather was chilly, but nice. It rained on us for about 3 minutes the whole time we were there. I dressed in layers and was warm enough for the whole trip. How I love your palm trees! Congrats on your anniversary. I'm glad Cindy was here to post a Happy Anniversary card for you! Still saying prayers for a great job for you guys.

Pam, we are seeing some improvement of Steve's eye. On Sunday he was able to read the hymn numbers on the board in the front of the chapel. That's a good sign. Still can't drive, but gives us hope. I'm loving your pages of little Ruby. I'm so glad she lives close enough to give you lots of time and attention.

Sim, it sounds like you really had a terrible day. We were watching TV and seeing all the mess around Atlanta. So sorry about your car. I'm glad no one was hurt.

Missy, I love your new avatar! Great photo.
Hi to Shannon and Christine, Jen and Jana, Amy and Sarah, Nikki, Brandy and Jenny, and all the other Pokeys!

I'm hoping to do a fast page tonight. It's a 45 minute Stash Busters challenge. That's much faster than this Pokey EVER scraps. We'll see what happens. I've been thinking about what I want to do all day and it will be super simple.

Nylene, when did you go to Disney? Sorry I know I missed a lot of posts.

Debi, how did the bronchoscopy go?

Congrats Cindy!

Yes, I'm glad the fiasco last week is over unbelievable how crazy things can get with a little ice on the ground. We were just not prepared at all. Even Walmart doesn't carry chains here! What! There was no prep of the roads with salt. Cars were closing and crashing all over the place! People were stuck everywhere. Kids! OMG craziness!

Anyway I still have to take photos of what I scrapped while I was home last week during the crazy ice storm! Lol

Debi, saw your blog! Awesome!! Don't worry about followers, just have fun with it! love that you've got your layouts there and you are expressing yourself! I created a blog for myself last week..have yet to start!

Chat soon

Sim, I just got back from Disney. We left early last week. I didn't say too much because I didn't want people to know our home was empty. We had a great time.

Here is my first layout for this month. This was a quick one and very simple. This is my SIL (my resident computer fixer) and little Alex (youngest grandson).

Welcome back Nylene. Can't wait to see the photos from this trip.

I have a few layouts to share. They were all inspired by the Stashbuster challenges. We had a snow/ice day today so I got a little scrappin in when the kids weren't needing something. Got another kid sick. It seems when I think everyone is over it....it starts up again. Kinda like the crazy weather this year. So OVER this cold.

NYLENE look at you go --a LO in 45 minutes...now you're talking my style of scrapping. It was a great LO too. Glad you had fun at Disneyland.

MISSY sorry you are dealing with sick kids, but I get how it seems to be a chain reaction (once one gets it, it goes down the line).

SIM thanks for checking out my blog, but as you may have noticed it's been ages since I posted there. I haven't convinced myself the need to have a blog. Started it as a requirement for a CT I was on ages ago, but didn't keep it up. I'm bad, I guess.

You can view all my LOs here in my gallery though...I have over 1200 posted I believe.

Bronchoscopy went without a hitch. Home now, a little sleepy (from the drugs) and a bit of sore throat (from the scope). No unexpected issues found. Now it's just a waiting game for the cultures ...prelimary results next Monday (looking for infection_) but they continue culturing for 8 weeks, just in case. I just want the "lungs are cleared of infection" diagnosis so I can resume my regular medications or make different plans.

Have a great day
Debi

Glad your bronchoscopy is over, debi. Hope they can give you some results soon.

Good morning pokeys!!

Well,just having my 2nd cup of coffee and working on a table cloth for my dining table sort of for Valentine's Day. Nothing fancy,just some homespun patterns that I will layer.

Well it is sunny and the ground is still snow covered but the bright light sure helps me feel like sp.... is on the way.Forecast speaks differently,but it hasn't happened yet,lol!!

I am on a mission today to hopefully get some antique canning jars of mine cut for shades to make some canning jar pendants. That darned pinterest has put another idea into my mind that I can't shake. My sil is an electrician and he tells me that I could have more wattage in my bulbs,if the bottoms are open. So the glass cutting place tells me to bring my "stuff" down for them to look at. I am skeptical because I want no breakage or error,KWIM,some of the jars date back to the 1800's and that is worth preserving. I love to repurpose,so we shall see.

Nylene,when my dh and I went to Disney with the grands,we came home each day and rested for the entire evening after dinner. We also took advantage of rest breaks on the bench while at the parks. It was a wonderful experience but quite a work out for we "older" folks,lol...

Pink Gelato,I saw the news about Atlanta and that storm last week and I just said.... oh those poor people. Glad you are ok,I am sorry to hear about your car. The photos on the news were showing hundreds of cars just out on the IS and freeways.... stuck. How awful!!

Well, I must get busy with my "bright ideas" I will keep you posted on the end result... Soon Come Pam

see

Good Afternoon Pokey's! Wow been a lot of traffic since yesterday. Stopping by to post a layout-a paper layout to share. You can find it here:
HUGS and SQUEEZES

Nylene-glad to hear you had a great time with Angie and family. I too knew you were going but did not realize you had gone. I know those babies were glad to see you. I will email you the recipe. It is a yummy quick dinner. Here's a link to where my page is in the magazine:Those Were The Days And if it doesn't work it is page 98.


Debi-glad to hear the initial results of your bronchoscopy. Payers and fingers crossed for the rest!

Sim-sorry to ear about your car and glad you are ok.

We are getting 6-12 inches of snow tonight-it is supposed to start here at dinnertime. We are supposed to get the most of it between 2 & 9AM. We will be digging out again. Then we are supposed to get another one Sunday. It has been a wicked winter for a lot of folks!

I will be back and catch up on the praise.


Hugs, Cindy

temps dropped here but at least it is clear and dry.

Throat continues to be irritated today, even more so than yesterday, probably cause the drugs wore off...LOL but tolerable.

I slept like a log last night...crashed and had a hard time waking up this morning to get the boys off to school. Didn't expect that but a good night's sleep is not a bad thing.

Today not doing much. How about you?

Cindy, I had a few minutes to settle down and enjoy the magazine and spotted your layout right away. Love that layout...so much nostalgia for me and DH in our younger years. I love your last layout. I want to totally scraplift it in 8.5x11. Those flowers are amazing!!

Debi, I'm glad the preliminary report is good and hope we can get you moving toward wellness. Did you get your kitchen light up?

Pam, you must post a picture of your antique bottle project in the thread. You can do that by hosting it somewhere and then using the IMAGE tool at the bottom. I'd love to see the result. Good luck on the cutting.

Missy, you are really on a roll. But don't get so fast that you leave us Pokeys in the dust!

Sim, love your flying high layout. I'm mad that we didn't take airplane photos. Silly me!

Well, the Cubs will be here soon. We have arranged for our neighbors who are artists to talk to the boys about art and to show off their fabulous artwork. They do a great job with the boys. They do this for each new group I get. Boy, do I appreciate them!!

See you all later!

Sounds like lots of you peas should be called frozen peas! I wish I could send some warm weather but it has been cool out here. Got a little scrapbook shopping done today and want to make a few pages a a few cards. See how you guys are inspiring me to scrap?! I took some pics from our anniversary lunch on Saturday so I have got some nice pictures to play with.

We had a nice weekend. We had lunch at the the golf course and Sunday was the Superbowl. We were enjoying the game and would you believe our cable channel just on that channel went out for a long while!!!! My dh and I were so mad and finally thought to find it online. Geez!!! But it finally came back on tv and we were happy for Seattle. Man, I REALLY would of been upset if we were having a party and it went out. OMG!

Cindy- What a game! I couldn't believe Seattle almost blew out the great Payton Manning like that. They say "defense wins championships" and they were sure right! It was almost shocking to watch. But I hope he gets another chance to redeem his record. Seattle is a tough team and just flat out played outstanding so hats off to the new champs!

Nylene- Thanks for the new thread too! I wish it had been warmer when you came out here. It had been fairly warm for weeks and then it started to cool off on the weekend. But I am glad you all had a ball. Have you recovered yet? Yes, I am looking forward to see some pics too.

Sim- Yes, I heard about the crazy weather out there too. I am glad you are ok but I hope the city can be more prepared the next time. Scrapping is always great medicine. Scrap away!

Missy- You ladies in these cold weather areas are so tough. I would be so tired of the cold too. Hang in there!!!

Pam- The party for your dd sounds fun. I know she must have enjoyed all that family love.

Hi to all!!

Just a quick hello then I am off to make some cards and see where the day takes me.

Kelly, are you still painting.... wouldn't it be cool if you painted the landscape where you spent your anniversary.... Sending you some lucky vibes for Ron's job quest.Also,send me some of that "cooler" CA weather,it's got to be better than ours here in Ohio.lol

Well, the weather has delayed my lamp project a bit.... I still need the pendant adapters,which will probably take some shopping at different home improvement stores. We got a lot of snow last night,so I am beached today probably.

Pink Gelato,what was that photo treatment that you used on the picnic day layout. I loved that!!

Well, enough of my babble... Soon Come Pam

Hi, everyone.

I started to clean my scraproom and (as usual) I had an idea and just had to scrap. Sometimes I feel so lazy that I spend so much time in this hobby. But I keep telling myself it's cheaper than therapy!

Here's the layout I did. This is my little Ashy-Bug granddaughter. She spends a lot of time at our home.

I Love Your Style

Be back later to chat!

Hello Peas! Well we lived thru another storm! We got about 5 or 6 inches, then freezing rain. Such a mess. The kids kept me busy today. I have a webinar at 9 but will be back after 10. Love the webinars as I always learn something. This one is with Jana Morton. I have another one in a week or two that is called Digi U. We actually have a live chat where we can join in on the conversation.

I will be back to catch up on praise and see what is new with all of you.


Hugs, Cindy

weather dropped another 10 degrees today so we're in the teens, but expecting it to warm up about 20 degrees with chance of snow (guess there is some snow both north and south of us already. we're in a pocket I guess.

I'm dreading confronting my new roomie today...hasn't paid this month's rent, now is late, and hasn't mentioned anything to me. This was the problem I had with my prior housemate (the one who referred this one) so hope this isn't a red flag. I charge $5/night late fee for every night after the due date until paid in full but I hate to have to actually use this clause...hopefully it is just an oversight.

Speaking of income, any helpful hints on how one looks for a job these days? I desperately need an income.

And my health back. Is that too much to ask?

Shannon, I guess there are some advantages to the miserable cold...it allows time for scrapping. You've been doing a great job.

Debi, I wish I could give you some advice on employment but I've been out of the working world a long time now. I'm sure you have checked with your local employment agency. Would a temp job work for you. They often lead to full time. Good luck. Nice job on your layouts.

Cindy, no wonder you are becoming a professional scrapper, with all the classes and practice you are getting. I'm proud of you. Wish you lived here so we could do things together. I hope you keep warm in your cold neck of the woods. Enjoy your webinars!

We've been to Home Depot already today, in fact, at 9 a.m. I know DH will be so much happier when he can run his own errands again. We rode out to see the Golf Course yesterday and I can feel his impatience with the snow that is hiding his grass!! He does think his eye is healing, so when we go back to the surgeon in March, I hope he will be cleared to drive.

I finished another page last night. I can't seem to stay out of this scraproom.

Footprints

I hope you are all keeping warm and get a chance to scrap. Have a great day!

Hi Peas!Glad to see everybody is busy scrapping! By the way the webinars at Creative Passions are free. Sometimes part of a class but Digi U is monthly and no charge. You just have to register and sign up at CP. The next one is Feb 18. I actually installed our new tv today! I was impressed! It is a smart tv and I can't believe what those things do. You can even get the internet on that thing.

Nylene- You're so sweet and say such kind things. I so enjoy leanting things about scrapbooking. I went out today and bought a ton of adhesives for my paper pages. I was running low on my supplies. I am trying to do a couple paper and a couple digi a week. I wish I lived closer to you also-but we would be in big trouble all the time! I am so glad to hear that Steve feels his sight is coming back. What a blessing and gift that is!

Debi-yep I would be putting my foot down here in the beginning so hopefully that doesn't happen again..You need that extra money. Finding a job is hard these days, but I think most people send resumes out where there are ads for.

Pam- I am with you GF I am getting tired of all this bad weather. I think it started at Christmas and has just continued on and on and it is getting old. I loved the story you sent me! These dogs are just characters aren't they.

Well I need to go check out everyone's creative works! BBL!

Thanks for all the compliments ladies! xxx

I'm so tired and am going to bed but I'll come tomorrow to look at the stuff you've posted

Pam-I'm not sure which photo effect I used. But it was done on Instagram. I just looked and there are a couple in there that have this brownish hue. Like 'rise', 'early bird' and 'toaster'. Maybe it's one of those? Sorry I don't remember. I was just playing with Instagram a couple years ago haha

debi-hope u feel better soon! I have chronic pain and understand the feeling when you just think, gosh can't I just feel good and pain free for a day!? Ugh. Sorry I'm no help with job hunt either. could you join like Mary Kay or some type of thing like that?

Chat soon

I mentioned to my housemate she was late on rent (the actual conversation wasn't uncomfortable)but her response was that she was more than happy to pay the late fees...hmmm not exactly the response I was looking for...guess I'm going to need to nail her down on paying on time...

trying to decide if I'm going to visit mom tonight...she is bored and wants me to come up but I had planned on going up Sunday for other reasons. She wants me to spend the night and hang with my brother who is coming to visit tomorrow...I don't want to waste away my whole weekend though...oy!

Spent the morning reviewing Japanese kanji so I can help Noah with studying...hope it helps.

If you don't hear from me for a couple days, you can be assured I'm at mom 's (no internet there). LOL

Hi, everyone! I have been gone all day. I drove to SLC to meet my 3 sisters and sister-in-law for lunch. We talked and laughed for 3 hours. It was such a great day. Only made one early trip to Home Depot today. We've been every day this week. It's a good thing I love my DH!

I'm working on a layout that actually has a photo of ME! Now that's unusual. I'll post when I finish.

Debi, thanks for letting us know that you may be gone. We start worrying after a couple of days!

Sim, I'm sorry that you are a chronic pain sufferer. Is it worse when the weather is so cold? Hope you are doing well.

Cindy, you are getting a lot done while you are locked down in the cold. Are you planning to watch the Olympic ceremony tonight. I hope it goes really well since there seems to be so many problems with the Sochi venue so far.

Hi to Pam and Kelly and all the other Pokeys!

Have a great weekend! I hope 2peas behaves itself this weekend. I may try to finish my layout and post it.
Hugs to all.

Nylene I am watching the opening ceremonies but have my laptop on my lap. We bought a new tv for our family room so I am watching it on there. It is a 50 inch Smart tv. You can actually get the internet on this tv! Guess who got to set it up. Still have a few things to figure out but it is working. Got Netflix to work and the dvr. It actually has a built-in wireless!!! Oh what will they do next!
I am excited to see your layout since we don't see you often on your pages! Like all of us we take the photos!


Hugs, Cindy

Hey all! I've been a little busy this week and settling down this evening while I watch the Winter Olympics opening ceremonies. I do love sporting events. I can't even imagine how excited and nervous these athletes are. But they have been prepared for this moment. So go team USA!

Last night Ron and I went to an event at Macy's celebrating Black History Month. It was a panel discussion about fashion and the African American influnces. The famous speakers were good and we enjoyed it. So now I've got some more pics to scrap.

OMG, you ladies have been scrapping away. I have the bug now too. I got some prints to p/u and then I can get started. Oh and I have got to catch up on praising your layouts. So far behind!

Pam- I haven't done any painting recently but doing one of the golf course landscape is a good idea. I just love it there and it would be fun to try to create something. Also, we have cooled off here but I wish I could send you some of our weather. You frozen peas are so brave to deal with all that cold. Hang in there!

Pam & Nylene- Thanks for all the well wishes on my dh's job search. He has had some interviews. Just hoping something opens for him soon.

Nylene- I remember those Home depo runs too. My grandma loved going to the garden section and gets lots of plants for the gardens. She love those Martha Washington Geraniums along with other stuff. So because of all those visits, my love for gardening developed. I can't wait till I live somewhere where I can plant my very own gardens. Going to be so fun! Also, I am glad your dh is feeling better and hope he will be cleared to drive at some point.

Cindy- Your new TV sounds awesome!!!! Just wait when football season starts again you are gonna feel like you are at the game!!! Enjoy playing with. Also, I almost forgot about the live chat classes. I used to love watching and chatting with Prima and a few others. THe one you took sounds fun too. Now you can watch it on your TV. So cool! THis Opening Ceremonies is something else. Now the nations are finished matching in and it is at the history and pagentry. So interesting! Hope you enjoy the games.

Waving hi to Sim, Missy, Debi, Christina and you other sweet ladies. Have a nice day!

Cindy, I'll bet those Opening Ceremonies were fabulous on that big TV. You are so brave to hook it up and get it working. When our remote gets messed up, I have to call DSIL to come fix it. We are both so techno-challenged! Steve can put on movies for the kids, but I just mess it up trying!

Kelly, I'm so glad you have the scrapping bug! I think your outing for Black History Month sounds wonderful. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

I need to get some Saturday work done, but wanted to post the layout I finished. It's bulky so didn't scan really well, but you get the idea.

Have a great weekend.

Hello everyone! I am freezing here in MO. The wind chills have been in the single digits. It appears we are to get above freezing later in the week! I am looking forward to it. For some reason, my allergies are crazy! Cedar started this time of year and it was out in January. I can't get any local pollen counts yet but something is stirring up my allergies.

I am hoping to get my bonus room back in order and get a table ready so I can scrapbook or do art journaling. I am still trying to locate my book on drawing faces. I get in a groove organizing then I have to go to work and it derails me! I have a broken up schedule this week which makes it hard.

I am at the coffee shop which will be closing soon. They have started blocking some of my scrapbooking MB I visit but this one I can still visit! I hope everyone is doing good!

Hope it warms up for those of you who are in super cold weather or snow! apparently we are going to have some snow and ice Tuesday and/or Wednesday. Sounds like everyone may be more prepared this time hahahaha

I have scrapped but have to take pics of the layouts and post. Goodness. Just been so busy!

Saw a few of your layouts and wish I could see them all I usually use my phone and it gets annoying to go back and forth with the app and internet.

Waving hi to all the lovely ladies!

Hi all. I ended up going to my Mom's on Friday night; I don't like to say "no" to Mom since it's so hard for her to get out now that her main ride isn't doing well health-wise. Of course, we visited the casino but didn't stay long since it seemed the only thing we could do there was donate money. LOL.

Spent the night, since my brother was coming to visit on Saturday, which is one reason my mom wanted me to come up earlier than I had planned. So we went to lunch with my brother. I spent the day there studying Kanji (I managed to finish 7 out of 10 chapters trying to catch up with the boys), and watched hallmark station and a little bit of the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. Planned on spending the night because I needed to pick something up on Sunday (my original plan)then go home early to get stuff done at home (the stuff I wanted to work on Saturday) but the weather had other plans. I turned on the late night news to see if I could catch some Olympics news and found out that it had been snowing heavily and the main roads around Mom's were all closed. I looked outside and sure enough it was covered with several inches of snow and still snowing. Thus it wasn't til late afternoon after the roads were a bit clearer that I headed home, stopping for gas and groceries. Oh well, I got lots of Japanese review done and lots of visiting with Mom so it was all good.

Housemate left rent on my bedroom door, so good on that front too.

Got an email from my pulmonary doctor saying they found a bit of bacteria in my lungs (no surprise there) so she ordered me another round of antibiotics (this will be my 4th one) but she thinks I should be able to restart my RA meds if my rheumatologist agrees. I see him on Friday. So we'll see where to go from here.

Have a great day
Debi

All caught up on gallery praise ladies.

Nylene, thanks for the compliment on my new avatar photo. It was taken on our cruise back in October. One of few pics of us together that I'm not trying to take it myself. We had the waiter take it. I had to convince my DH that we needed at least one good photo of us together for me to scrap where my arm holding the camera wasn't in the photo. LOL

Kelly, the weather this year has been CA-RAZY!!! We have had two rounds of ice storms and this last week had a round of snow. At least w/ the snow my kids can enjoy being home from school. With the ice, NOT SO MUCH.

We have missed so many days of school I fear our summer will be short lived. It's rather aggravating. I enjoy my time with my kids. They have even thrown around the idea of taking away Spring Break. Not to pleased about that, considering I have camping on the beach in Florida plans.
If I could talk the DH to moving somewhere that I didn't have to deal with cold weather, I would. He likes the seasons. I would rather have warmth year round.

Howdy HEY! to the rest of my pokey gals. Hope everyone is staying warm.

Hi, Jen! Nice to see you stopping by. How's our TV star?

Jana, so sorry you are freezing! What a strange winter we have all had. How are the four-footed friends at your house? Is your internet cafe closing for good? We need to see some of the layouts you've done lately!

Cindy, I am loving the flowers you have put on your last couple of paper layouts. They are just gorgeous. What are your tricks? Do you cut them on your sil.?

Debi, I'm glad they can target the bacteria in your lungs. Hope your Dr. will OK the RA meds again now. Sorry the casino stole your money. They have a habit of doing that! I'm glad you had a good visit with your mom and brother. I hope your drive home through the snow was not too scary.

Missy, I love seeing your layouts. I know how busy you are and it makes me happy to see that you are documenting your life.

Sim, I hope you don't get any more of that winter weather!! You have had your share this year. It's raining cats and dogs here, but we really need the moisture. It's snowing in the mtns which is what we need.

Here are two pages I did about our first summer as a married couple. There's nothing artistic about them, and they are more journaling than scrapping, but I wanted to get it down on paper. I really should do more layouts about our early years like this.

Mount Harrison

I'm working on things for Cubs tomorrow and for the Blue and Gold Banquet next week, so I'll be back after tomorrow. Have a great day, my Pokey friends.

Nylene, the internet cafe was just closing for the evening. I tend to go late in the evening on Sunday and they close at 11pm. They start rounding everyone up about 10 minutes before closing time.

I haven't really done much scrapbooking since my room is disorganized. Hopefully, I can get things more organized soon! I don't think it is going to happen today. I haven't had much sleep and then went to the gym to swim laps. I am ready for a nap!

My four-legged friends are loving that I have an electric blanket to help warm the bed up! I got one that turns off after 3 hours. It gets the bed warmed up and as long as I don't have to get up, I stay warm! We got more snow today. :thumb down: I believe by the end of the week, the weather is going to be above freezing! I am ready!

Hey all! Hope you are staying warm and cozy today. I hear the weather is going crazy back east and hope it passes soon.

I have been drawing and made some cards for Valentines. I got a few more cards and layouts to make. I hope to continue these this week. Just not sure if I have any good pp for my layouts. Hope I can find some.

Missy- Wow, if I lived there I would be so over the cold and snow too. Hang in there. I know the kids love being home, though.

Nylene- Your layout about the fire lookout job is so amazing. Your writing is so vivid and really made me see what you both experienced. So good!

Cindy- How is that tv looking? Oh, you know we missed some of the Superbowl game because our cable froze right? So tonight i found out we get any one movie for free. That is a nice suprise and woulr be nice to watch on a smart tv.
I heard the Browns made more changes. I hope this all helps the team get better.

Waving hi to you all! Have a nice night!
