Hello 2011!!

Hey all,

I know it's a little late but hello 2011!! I know it's been forever. I don't know if any of you that follow are still even checking. I haven't been feeling well the past month or so but I am on the mend. This past week was particularly rough. The holiday season also took a toll on me. I even didn't have enough time to scrap and be creative. Even though we have been off of school enough I just didn't have the time. I've had some more time now though since the holidays are over. I have gotten to work on some wedding shower favors. I'll try and get a video up of those. If not a video at least some pictures. I got the idea from Chic' n Scratch. They're the post-it note holders using a binding system. I haven't done a bunch of paper crafting otherwise. I feel out of practice now, haha. I have taken up knitting again. I started a scarf for a friend a while back but wasn't happy with the way it looked so I had stopped working on it. I undid the work I had done and practiced over and over. I am happy with the work I am doing now and have started working on it in earnest. I'll get some pics up soon.

We have been out of school this past week and are off tomorrow also. We were off for 7 days at the end of last semester and have now been out for 7 days this semester. We only have 10 days worked into our system, this was after they bumped it up from last year. They have already started trying to figure out where to take the days from. Although there's been talk of since we're in a state of emergency maybe we'll get some of days excused. We'll just have to wait and see. This has been a good time to not feel well. So I guess everything has worked out alright.

Oh by the way, I was doing really well not spending a whole lot of money on myself the past month or so. I was proud of myself. I have bought more stuff recently, but I have had some gift certificates and good coupons. So I haven't spent a ton of money. Right now it's a little hard though because I have these other coupons for my birthday and stuff and of course there are things that I would like to get. One of the things is a pegboard for my scrapping area - I've been waiting because I didn't know if we were going to try and move soon or not. I think though that I would like to get it anyway and I'll just take it down again or whatever. Part of the reason for really wanting it now is that I am slowly working on rearranging things in a few rooms and that includes my scrapping area. At one point I thought I was going to lose my work surface but I may be able to keep it after all. We'll just have to wait and see what ends up working. I may decide that I don't want the pegboard after all. We went to Sam's and bought this bin system that I really like - at first I didn't know if the look was going to be too industrial but I like all of the storage that is available. Maybe I should get a second one since I pretty much have this one full. Anyway, just been thinking of different options and what I think will work best for me. Hubby has offered to build something if I make up my mind what I want to use.

Anyway, enough rambling for now. I'll get those pictures up soon and some videos.

Take care and bye for now.
