Sickness has pushed its way into our house! Poor Kaila has been blasted with some sort of stomach bug. She's having a hard time keeping food down, but she's a trooper. I hope they get this out of their system before Thursday. It usually only lasts a day or two at the most. Poor girl!

We had our first Scrap-Day at Charlene's church. What a great set-up. I can't wait for the next one. We're hoping more people will be able to come next time. There was so much room for everybody!

If you have someone you'd like to get a scrappy gift for for Christmas, you should get over to The Scrapping Spot! They have some great sales right now AND they're offering free shipping on Good Friday - ONLY! Go to the forum to get the details. I think I'm going to get some stuff for some friends of mine :)

Anyway, here's a layout I did for my sketch blog. These pictures were taken by my friend, Angelina Schwarz. Amazing, eh?

Thanks for stopping by!

I can not believe that Thanksgiving is next week. Where in the world did the time go? Snow? Are you kidding me??? I need another week of warm weather, thank you very much!

Not too much going on here besides the usual - cooking, cleaning, unpacking...

I will be going to a scrapping day tomorrow - yeah!!! I sooooo need a day of scrapping!!! I'll have to leave for 3 hours during the middle of the day for a birthday party that the little ones are going to, but other than that...I'm scrappin'!!! I hope it becomes a regular event.

I just have one layout to share today using my sketch from this week, along with a kit from The Scrapping Spot.

Speaking of The Scrapping Spot, their December Kit Full Reveal is up and ready for purchase. These kits are loaded with embellishments and great Christmas papers! Get over there and get yours before they're gone!

Lots to do today to prepare for tomorrow, so that's it!
Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave me a comment!

The open house is upon us...finally! We worked hard this week to prepare the house for viewing. I'm happy to report that almost everything has been removed from the property and is practically ready to move in tomorrow. I'll keep everyone posted on the progress of the, hopefully, fast-selling house. Some of the photos are two different views of the same room.

The old house is coming right along. In fact, it's been listed and there is an open house this Saturday - yeah! We did a little more remodeling to the old scraproom - sniff! We took all the shelving down, patched it and painted it. Boy, this room looks huge! For those of you who have actually seen this room, it's amazingly different. Wish we would have done this years ago. It needs new carpet, but we'll leave that to the new owners. I will be soooo glad when the house is completely cleaned out and ready to show. What a relief that will be! Wish us luck and send your prayers up that this won't be on the market very long.

Happy Fall!!!! I loooovvveee FALL! It's a beautiful 60 degree day here. You can't ask for more than that!

This should turn out to be a good week for our family. We're preparing to list our old house this week. We're "feverishly" removing the remaining items from the house. Needless to say, we need to have another yard sale. - LOL! So, keep us in your prayers regarding the whole "house" issue. The market's not bad here, so it shouldn't be a problem. The sooner it's sold...the better.

Go on over to my other blog - Nuts About Sketches for your chance to win an awesome scrappy prize provided by The Scrapping Spot.

Just a couple layouts to share with you and then I must get some housework done.
