I know that it's been a little while since my last post.
First let me say that Irene has come and gone with no real damage to our home. There were however a few tornado warning/watches so we took the mattress into the basement and slept down there to be safe. The boys viewed it as an adventure. The youngest was nervous and scared but that was mostly due to the news broadcasts. Once the TV was off he did a lot better. Unfortunately there were areas that didn't make out as well and my heart and prayers went out to them.
Organization: Well that has been a slow go. While most of my stuff is pretty organized I still want more. lol
I have scanned all my stamps (except the ones that I just got) along with art work that co insides with the stamps sets from the Idea Books for inspiration. My next step is to print the out and have them in a binder for easy access. They will be stored in theme/number order as well as the reference book. I have a lot of images to print and I know that I will go through some major ink to get it all done.
I also did move my stamps up a drawer level from where they were. It makes more sense since I am constantly going through them and I don't have to bend over to see them.
School: Matthew's first day of school was cancelled due to Hurricane Irene which he was very happy for.
This is Joe's Senior year of High School. They already did the senior portraits during the summer. I am not to thrilled with them but at least he did it. This boy really hates his picture taken. It;s like pulling teeth to get him to let me take one.
Allergies have been my worst enemy as of late. I have been taking some meds but they make me drowsy if I am not kept busy or moving constantly. So needles to say my crafting hasn't been up to par in my book. I have had a friend who is pretty new to scrapbooking come over and showing her how to do a layout that is in the Idea Book. She is enjoying learning the different techniques.
Other than that there really isn't much going on here. I hope that you all are in good health and enjoying life! Don't let it pass you by!!
