Home today. Took off work to take Auntie Margaret to her endoscopy. They had to put her under general anesthesia and needed a driver. Good enough excuse for me to miss one day of work. I planned ahead and left my lesson plans. Hope my sub isn't certifiable by the end of the day.

I saw a layout on Stephanie Wheeler's blog a while ago and thought it was a great idea to make a list of things currently happening in my life... and since I'm off work today with some time on my hands, I thought I'd take a stab at it.

listening: to Glee from Season 1

eating: Wendy's BLT Cobb Salad

drinking: Diet Coke

wearing: T-shirt, capris and sandals

feeling: relaxed

weather: hot and sunny

wanting: my Kindle to be here already

needing: some courage

thinking: about the near future (and pondering about some decisions that I have to make)

enjoying: reading on Kindle for Mac in excited anticipation for the actual Kindle!

wondering: how soon I'll find out about something (mum's the word for now...and no I'm not pregnant...for sure.)

That was fun! Gonna have to do it again soon. Leaving in a bit to go to JB's 3rd birthday party at his day care. He's three... oh my!

Feeling out of sorts

It's been a rough few weeks. Dealing with a lot of feelings and emotions right now. It's taking a toll on my body...I feel so tired all the time and I'm hyper-sensitive. I have some decisions to make and a lot of soul-searching to go with those decisions. Not a place I want to be in.

Besides feeling like a semi ran over me, it's been a busy few weeks. I've only managed 2 layouts since my big scrap session.

I scrapped this one last weekend. Broke out the new sewing machine I bought and created a mess. Thankfully, the white thread mess doesn't really show.

Supplies: Studio Calico Anthology Collection and Basic Grey Basics.

This one made it to the table today. I had a vision for what I wanted the splotches to look like. In the state of my muddled head, the product didn't quite turn out the way I wanted. I used Sketch 7 from KP's sketchbook 2 class as inspiration. I scrapped on a piece of 8.5x11 cardstock and then adhered the whole piece to the patterned paper. Got that idea from Ali Edwards.

Supplies: Studio Calico "Back 40" September kit. Studio Calico cloud stamp set (not in kit).
