after watching jeniece paint her inspired me to want to paint my old wicker seat.... so sommer helped me drag it in the yard, and start painting
It's not quite done yet...need to pick up one more can of paint....but I like the way it turned out.and really adds a bright welcome to the front of the house, it feels so fallish today...I'm ready for this fall.....halloween, weather, hoodies...pumpkins/....speaking of pumpkins..I also am making a pumpkin stem to decorate my car for halloween...but it turned out a little obscene..check it out on facebook...I posted pics!! but it's not done...

actually started working on a mini book of my trip to texas this summer...did the cover and the first page, and then ran out of adhesive...ughhhh!! Well it figures I would get the scrap bug, on the first day back to school!!

Autumn issue of Somerset Memories

I got my copy of the autumn issue of the somerset memories, this is the first one of their big that they only do 2 a year...but it is huge...and packed full of tons of cool projects.....and they even have one of my layouts in there...this is mine on the top of the page......

so excited to be getting a week off of school....much needed...always gives us a boost when we go back, hard to believe and a little scary that we are half way done....but don't have much planned for the week, maybe take the girls to the apple orchard or something...they're getting so old....or maybe a movie night...a week from today...Tonee' turns 20 years old....still can't believe it!! Oh well gotta go...actually at work....and then I have weigh in tonight right after....wish me luck!!

outside scrappin'

yesterday was so beautiful......I decided to got outside and scrap on the back porch for awhile...and did actually finish up to pages...not much to them..but it felt good to be creative again....this first one is of lil' mikey on his birthday..enjoying the homemade cupcakes aunt stac made for him (okay store bought)!! but heck he doesn't have to know that... and this one is of me and the girls when we went to the paint your masterpiece place on sommers birthday

Life is pretty good right now, school is hard...this is the hardest mod since I started, I don't know if it's because we are kinda in the half way mark, and I am just feeling burned out!! but I just feel like I am having trouble "getting" it...!! But we keep truckin' along. Looking forward to project runway tomorrow....even if they keep kicking off the most entertaining people...just love that show!! Oh well gotta go..on my way out the door to school!
