Yes, I actually do stuff.

Guess what? I actually DO stuff with my crafty bits. (I bet you thought I'd talk about my lady bits, huh?) (Perverts.)

I'm so freaking close to finishing a birthday present for Krysten. I have Sam's all made. Then I have to put the finishing touches on a package o' birthday lovin' for both of them. So obviously- craftiness will happen there.

Over the weekend I got a few scrapbook pages done and so I'm going to show you. Just so you can see that the huge new stash of stuff I got will not go to waste. Oh no. AND I just got a few more pictures printed because I'm really far behind and I'm getting to be a bit...overwhelmed. Yup- that's the word I should use here.

This page is obviously all about Jackson. One minute he was happy, chillin on his homemade throne reading books. The next minute (after I moved the strategically placed pillow leaning against him) he burst into tears. It's rough being two, folks.
OOh--- some of my favorite pictures of my kids being nice to each other. Here's a fun fact- I have a LOT of stamps...yet I hardly use them on pages. I don't know why. I can't explain my crazy yall.
Hey- blogger is being a whore and won't put this the right way. But this? Is a super creepy bunny that comes during Easter. This year both of my kids have whacked out eyes. It's like all three of them are possessed.
Part one of two pages- Look at this face and tell me you wouldn't eat him up???

Part two of two.

And as a testament to how far behind I am....these pictures are from 2007. Seriously. Olivia is only 2 in these pictures- wow. The other two girls are my cousins who live in Florida and are adorable.
Anyways. So I got that stuff done, and two more pages done tonight. I have a long ways to go and Matt is picking up pictures for me right now. As well as putting gas in my van AND putting air in my tire.

Don't laugh- I tried to put air in my tire today except that it was SO loud and I freaked out. Mostly because I had visions of a tire blowing up in my face and I'd end up like that girl on that one Law & Order episode that had no face. Well that was because someone threw acid on her face but I bet the effects would be the same and yah. All of that flashes in my head in the span of 2 seconds. It kind of makes me psychic, right?

Of course I'm right. I'm always right.

Oh- and before I forget. Buy stuff from my Etsy shop. My kids need winter jackets, hats, boots, mittens, and snowsuits. Mommy be broke. ;) I'm taking orders on holiday cards and invitations like right now. Hurry up and get your request in so I can fit you in before I lock myself up working on our family cards. :)

Question of the night: Do you have any hobbies? What kind of stuff do you do?

Eeeeek. I am SO excited to see what you have in store for me. Seriously, like bouncing up and down excited!!

Hobbies huh. Um... I guess writing would be my main hobby, even though I haven't been doing a lot of it aside from blogging lately. And reading, of course. And... does shopping count?

Your scrapbook pages came out sooo cute! I love them all! :) But the pictures of Jackson are just adorable on the one with the blue and brown theme goin on! Love it, he's adorable! I know just what you mean about being behind on scrapping, because I totally am!!!

I would have to say that my main hobbies are scrapping and reading :) I guess shopping could count as a hobby right?! :)

I am not a real craft person. I did great making my daughter's Halloween costumes over the years.
But, other than making a mean alien head, I don't attempt much craft things.
I have trouble following directions on how to bead things.
But, you do an awesome job.
My hobby is baking and cooking- by evidence of my blog-

I used to love scrapping <--- is that a word?

Now I'm just lazy and have all my pics online. It's horrible.

You really do things with your crafty bits! Both dirty and non-dirty. I do think that your kids are so adorable, although I'm afraid you would have me arrested if I really told you that I would love to "eat Jackson up".

I don't have any hobbies right now, except eating and sleeping, and getting super fat.

Wow. Your scrapbook layouts blow mine out of the water. It's like you're working with one of those HP graphic design tablets and I've got a 4-pack of crayons.

Hmm..I cook, crochet, and go to 7-11 for slushies.

I should be scrapping instead of sitting here lol!

Those are cute! I used to do Creative Memories, then I realized it stressed me out to not have my albums finished in a timely manner. MyPublisher saved my life. Once a year, I do the yearly family album and I'm done. No worries. Get an awesome hardbound picture book that takes me a week to do.

I do craft...knitting, crochet, tunisian crochet, and this weekend sewing has taken up residence as another vice. :)

Great photos.

I knit, knit, and knit. Oh and I make jewelery from time to time. Oh and read, read, read.
