Hybrid Project

Wow...I forgot to blog this week...sorry! This afternoon, I made a pencil can for my kitchen for the MLAS Hybrid Challenge. It was lots of fun and super easy to create. I used the Autumn's Allure Kit by Kathy Winters for the can and the LO!

I made 3 LOs for a one kit call (OKC) by Tabea of Sunshine Artz...I will post them when she gives me the OK!

A Good Monday

It's been a busy day...I organized a few boxes...still have lots more to do... both here and in the storage unit! Scrapped a page last night with Autumn's Allure by Kathy Winters at Scrapable. I am anxiously waiting for my designers for November for both MLAS and Scrapable! And, I can't wait for the new challenges!

I am watching the Cake Boss on has me craving cake...just plain old cake (like birthday cake)...2 layers, icing in the middle, and icing on top...and give me the sweet stuff...not, that whipped stuff!

I just thought that I was pooped on Monday...last night was much worse! I went to zzzz at 8 pm...about 6 hours early for me...I am normally a night owl! Got a bunch moved yesterday and a big load brought to Goodwill.

Molly is enjoying laying in the window in a sunbeam...we have been having very little sun the last 2 weeks...just lots and lots of rain. There is a 60% chance of the wet stuff this afternoon...she'd better enjoy the sun while she can (she just fell asleep...she loves the wide window sills in the condo!).

I just got an awesome Autumn Frame freebie from Denise at FlutterButter Designs...check it out!

Moved lots of stuff today...I am pooped! I am hoping to get most of it placed in it's proper place before I go to, we can reuse the boxes tomorrow! Molly is having a blast digging in the boxes! It has been raining all day...a dreary day!
