Back to scrapping

I met my husband in December of 2005, so scrapbooking just completely stopped and took a backseat in my life. I enjoyed doing it but I'm not as creative as some people are and it usually takes me forever to get inspired to put a page together. Well that's gonna change! I've been following Melanie's blog now for awhile and she has given me the scrapping itch! I had all sorts of books going at one time, but dating, marriage, and just the whole "wifely" duties that come along with that has gotten me behind on times. I went to Disney World in April 2005 and that book and all my pics have just been packed up, never touched again, until today! My living room is tore upside down with scrapping stuff. And my precious little Tatum is gonna meet his maker if he CHEWS on any more of my tools. I walked away for just a short while and here he comes with one of my little razor thingys I use to cut pics and papers. He's now in time out! LOL (FYI, he didn't cut himself with the razor, he was chewing on the cover of it) My current goal is to finish this book real soon. Wish me luck! More to come...

Happy New Year...wanna know my resolution?!

OK, I'm a blog slacker...pretty much if it means I gotta sit down at this computer for any length of time and think of something to say, I'm gonna be slack about it. Oh well...

I just wanted to share my New Year's resolution with everyone!! I, personally don't do resolutions, never have...but I was thinking a few months ago about this and decided it would be a resolution I would stick to this year. Drum roll please!!! My resolution is to wear make-up everyday that I actually have to go outside of my house. : ) LOLOLOL You think I'm joking right?!? WRONG!!! I am sooo serious! I have gotten into a BAD habit of not wearing make-up for the past year or so...Good Grief!!! It all started when my precious husband told me he didn't care if I didn't wear it, because I was pretty either way to I started sliding a little. Well, then when I'd put it on I noticed my face would break out and my eyes would get irritated from the mascara or eyeshadow so I slid a little more. Then I started a new work schedule and ended up going into work before 6 am and there was no time to put it on at home, so I just didn't worry with it...This is a major thing here!!! My mother has been on my case for, like EVER now telling me I needed make-up (what a mom) drives her crazy when she sees me without it. So, I went out at my birthday and bought me all new stuff, mascara, foundation, powders, eyeshadow, everything that I usually wear and I've been doing fairly good about putting it on everyday so far. I've slipped a few times but hey, I have just been practicing for the new year right!?!? Well, the new year is HERE so I have to live up to this! I did let myself down today (GOOD GRIEF, it's the flippin' 1st day) by going out this morning to Wal-Mart and not even thinking about it! But hey, it's Wal-Mart, do I really need to impress anyone there?! I was only there for a short period of time so I think I'll be ok. But seriously I plan to keep up with this. I have inherited from my parents dark under-eye circles that definitely need to be hidden, and lets face it, I'm old...I need to do something to make myself look good!!! LOLOL

I hope everyone had a GREAT Christmas and that this New Year will be filled with blessings for you and your family.
