Sporadic Scrap Attack

I just LOVVVVE it when my mom calls me up and says, "Hey! Um? Can you make me a ________?!" Followed by me saying, "When do you need it by?" Mom replies with, "Ah? Now?" So this is what happens following the phone call:

Today it was a 62nd birthday card for my mom's cousin Alinda. It turned out to be a sweet surprise for A as she is usually the one who makes everyone else cards for their special occasion. Alinda was so excited that someone made HER a special birthday card. Happy 62nd Alinda!

The above picture brings out the best in me. I work best in a messy, chaotic sort of organized mess. What can I say? It's sad too, because I have this great creative space that was supposed to keep me uber organized and allow my creative juices to flow. It never happened that way and I am trying to get it back to being UBER organized to allow for faster production of my creations. Some say that organization is key for success. I have yet to have that realization. The pictures below are of my "creative space" taken about 2 yrs ago. However, in its current state it is so unorganized and full of clothes and random collections of supplies that it's utterly unrecognizable. I hope your space is one that you are able to use and enjoy. I'll post pictures of my updated and useable crative space whenever I get around to uncluttering it:)

Please share comments on how you keep your supplies organized. Happy sporadic scrapping! H

Valentine's Day Book

As promised I have taken the completed V-Day book pictures utilizing our AWESOME sunshine that we are being blessed with today. I hope you enjoy this fun album as I will be putting it up for sale on my store (found here at: 509Designs) as well as a couple of other albums. Hope you love the pics:)

Thursday Challenge

I couldn't sleep this morning as this has become my usual routine over the last 6 weeks. I have tried a couple of things: warm milk, reading the most boring book I could find, over-the-counter sleeping pills, staying up ALL night AND day to try and get back on a regular sleep schedule. None of which seemed to work. Any ideas? LOL:) Anyway, I headed on over to one of my favorite digi-scrapbook blogs (Ellie's Angels CT blog) and saw that yesterday was Thursday's Challenge. I haven't done one in a while and thought I would take a stab at it.

Below is my layout and a copy of what I was supposed to replicate. I stuck true to the original design and I am pretty proud of it. Mostly because the picture I got last night from my mom. I wasn't aware that she took any pictures of my dad while he was at N.I.A.C.H. I am SOOOO proud of him and want to make a book of his progress to help lift his winter blues.


All papers and elements from Ellie Lash kits Bubblicious and Countdown To Christmas

A YouTube Video

I hope to have some exciting news for you all regarding a physical store location after this weekend. Things have been crazy these last couple of days preparing, scrappin' and not getting ANY sleep:) I feel like God is leading Jaime and myself towards a great adventure. At least I hope it's God...LMBO! Sleep deprivation can really kick your butt. Anyway, I found this YouTube video that made me laugh a little. I hope it brings a smile to your face as it did to mine. Please keep us in your prayers as we tackle this adventure. Thanks, H
