Back Again

...... ok I have given you enough time to pick your chins up off the floor.
I must be coming down with something - definitely must be considering I am posting yet again lol.
Had a great day yesterday - finished off the last of the christmas shopping for the boys. Had to pretty much start from scratch with the Santa stuff after someone discovered the loot tucked away somewhere :( Hace decided to play a game of switch-a-roo so now all the Santa pressies will be from Tony and I, and vice versa. Bugger have a kid who loves to explore and is constantly looking around every nook and cranny around the farm, in the house and car. Oh well, will have to work harder to find better hiding spots next year.
I have been loving the holidays so far - lots of cleaning out and clearing out the house and reorganising the scrap room. I finally finished a job I started way back in October when I was at home on bed rest - reorganise the albums and putting all the Layouts in their correct album and in their correct order. Yes I know I tend to be a bit OCD about that sort of stuff :o. But now it is done and this is what it looks like:
Moved all of the LO's out of the old albums - except for the Creative Memories ones used when I first started scrapping - and put them in the Printblocks Ringbinder albums (love, love, love these albums). Then I used white Making Memories rubons to put the name and relevant year/s on the spine of each album. Love how it all looks all neat and tidy and organised. Now all I need is to work out what sort of wall unit I want and I can put them on display instead of in the cupboard lol.
On the scrapping front, I spent yesterday afternoon and evening at the shop. Like always, I didn't create much but I sure had a great time. I was finally able to give T the LO's I did for her - lets just say there were tears all round. I was totally thrilled by her response and I cannot say enough how pleased I am that she liked them. While at the shop, I came up with these two LO's. You can probably tell that I loved the LO from 2peas mentioned in the previous post because I have used exactly the same design again hehehehehe.
Nothing much is planned for today - maybe some more scrapping and I can see 4 cropper hoppers full of patterned paper and cardstock that is more disorganised that goodness knows what. The usual washing and ironing also needs to get done but I am sure I can hang the clothes out inbetween fiddling with a LO and the ironing can wait until another time or maybe later tonight hehehehe.
Ciao for now
Me xoxoxoxoxoxo
