Out with the old and in with the New

2009 is almost over. A new year brings fresh starts and new resolutions. I try not to make resolutions because I never keep them so I am calling them something else this year in hopes that they stick. They are life changes. I'm getting rid of the garbage, reorganizing all parts of my life. 2010 is going to be a great year.

Someone once told me that how you spend New Year's eve is how you will spend the rest of the year. So for 2010 I want to be surrounded by friends and family. That's what we are doing tonight - spending the evening with Terry's family - his Mom and stepdad, his brother Steven and wife Joelene along with their kids Breana and Sierra. I'm proud to call them friends as well as family.

Have a Happy New Year and may all good things happen in 2010

Here is my one last LO I have done in 2009 and used PSE 8. This is our friend Lynn when we went sledding at the frozen pond by our house. She is an absolute riot and spending time with her is guaranteed giggles.

New inspiration

Christmas came and went with a whirlwind. Presents that took weeks to think of, purchase, wrap and put under the tree where opened in moments. Dinner which took most of the day to cook was enjoyed and eaten in 30 minutes (really there was only 3 of us how much conversation could there be after spending all day together! LOL)

Well I got a great gift from my hubby - Photoshop Elements 8. So now I have been trying digital scrapbooking and have been loving it. I think I might be able to get caught up on Marcus' life since he is now 8 years old and I have only done his first year of life.

Here's some layouts I did with my new program. They are simple but I'm learning from scratch and think they aren't too bad considering I've only worked with the program for 4 days.

Latest card

Last week I got to spend a couple days at home with a sick child that shared the illness as well. I got to scrap a little though and organize my scrapbook supplies as well as surf the internet for many many amazing ideas.

This is a card I made for a swap I'm in. Not sure if I'm 100% liking it.

Cards swap - I'm addicted

These are some of the cards I did for a card swap with an amazing group of women - I haven't known most of them for long but I feel very connected to them. Probably because they are sharing my addiction to scrapbooking. :) They are amazing and very talented. I can't wait to learn more from them.

And even more.....

This is the drywall process - my brother came over and helped us - actually saved us. He has been a tremendous help. It's been a slow process but we know it's getting done right and done just the way we want it.

The corner where the "men" are debating what to do is my new scrap corner - it's gonna be perfect when we are done. Behind the framing is a big storage room and I have another one directly across from it.

Marcus is standing in front of what will be our big entertainment centre (indented wall area). He thinks that Santa will be bringing a big screen tv for that spot! Oh please Santa please - I've been a really good girl this year.

We are making progress

Well we are making progress - halfway there I think. At least that's what I like to think, it makes me feel we will be done sooner than later.

This is our electrician - it's a blurry shot but he was a little shocked I'd take his picture while working - I told him get used it I'm a scrapper!

New Scrap Room

This is my scrap space now. We are in the midst of renovating our basement and I get a new scrapbook area. I am so excited because Terry said that I can buy new furniture for it instead of taking the old used handme down icky stuff I hate with a passion as it reminds me of certain individuals I never want to mention again (whew that was a sentence) and sanding it all down and repainting it to match everything. So now I'm really excited and thinking of new ideas for my ideal scrap area. I will actually be moving this space to the other side of the room and a flat screen tv will go in this space where only girl movies and Disney movies will be played. Ok maybe some other things too when the boys join me but really it's a girl only space! LOL! I am so excited to get it done and invite all my scrappin' friends for a day of fun.

One of my favorite LO's

I did this at a retreat - Scrapbookers Paradies Camp Croppin - If you have never gone you should it rocks. This was a class I took from Bazzill. It's one of my favourite and I think I have replicated it twice now since doing it for friends.

Well I did it, I joined the world of blogging. Why? Not sure! Can't say how often this will get updated but it could be fun.
