I'm baaaack sugarmuffins!! 

This silly ol' blog has been giving me major headaches when I try to post, I'm not quite sure what the issue is...people have always raved about wordpress, which is why I shuffled on over, but now I'm not so sure... I'm starting to think the world doesn't want me blogging..hmmmnn??  

Anyhoo, where have I been hiding?? Nowhere too exciting, I'm afraid - I've spent the last month just busy and taking time to organize and regroup! Lots of family time, running around and surprisingly enough, almost no stamping!!  I did manage to head to a fun srapbooking weekend again so that was loads fun!! 

Halloween was kind of low-key this year (I think Nicholas and his friends are getting to the "too cool" stage, so he was not too into it)..I'm so bummed out about it I was so looking forward to it!!  I even managed to make 35 of these adorable "Frankie" baskets designed by Gretchen Barron for him and his friends.  It was all fun and games until about the 10th pair of "eyelashes" I decided to cut and curl for the girl baskets. OY... never again - (until Christmas, that is - after all, she did design new ones ).

I have recently gotten into digi scrapping (is that super-fun or what??)  I still could never give up my "old-school" paper and bulky embellishments, but it's kind of cool to just be able to scrap away on the computer!! 

Here's a brand spankin' new layout I made using a Sweet Shoppe Designs quick page kit:

How stinkin' cute is that?? It literally took 2 seconds!!  Look at that fake smile on my monkey!!   that poor kid is so traumatized  from having a camera in his face every 5 seconds, can you tell??  I just have to find a good place to print out the pages now - any ideas??

Can you believe it's November??  I am so looking forward to doing Ali Edwards' December Daily project again!! Of course, the goal is to have your book completed by December 1st, so I will definitely be working on that in the next couple of weeks!  I am gathering my materials and I even managed to find some really cool vintage findings on Etsy. (somebody stop me  - I am hopelessly addicted to shopping there! OMG!!) 

Okay, I think that's enough rambling for today!  I appreciate you taking the time to visit and read my chatter, I am going to have some fun stuff to share in the next couple of days (assuming my blog cooperates!! grrr...)  I look forward to sharing some fun new changes coming this way!!

Have a happy crafty day!!
