5.5 Months Later and...................

................here I am!!! Wow, I can not believe it has been 5 1/2 months since I've done anything on here! Heck, I've hardly done anything scrappy at all in that time. I decided to make a few changes as you can see - I've changed the look of the blog and I've changed the blog address. I am hoping that these little changes will help rejuvenate me in several aspects of my life!!!

So, what have I been up to???

1. New job. I spent 3 grueling months in training for my new job with the Federal Government so by the time I got home during the week I was so stinkin' exhausted I pretty much fell into my recliner until time to roll to bed. And weekends, meh, I spent most of those asleep or veggin' in the chair.

2. Family. I have spent a lot of time worrying about my Mom as her health went downhill for a while. Teenagers - need I say more? LOL It's been a tough road leading to their senior year so we've had a few road blocks and obstacles to overcome but here we are 2 weeks before school starts and I think, keyword is think, we are back on track!!!

3. Drama. I grew tired of it so, I've rid myself of those who contributed to the drama and stress levels. I've reworked my world and am going for quality versus quantity :)

4. Travel. Rob and I have done a lot of travel and fun stuff this summer - I'll upload pics throughout this week a few each day - there are well over 1000 pics so I would hate to bore you with all the pics at once!!! LOL

5. Copic. Need I say more!! Actually I should! By the end of August I will be the proud bearer of the "Licensed Copic Instructor" title!!! I will hopefully begin teaching classes here in Albuquerque and surrounding areas by October helping others discover how absolutely amazing Copic markers are!!!

Anywho, thanks again for coming over from the old blog and I hope you will hang around for a while and share your life, scrappy goodness and anything else with me!!! Until tomorrow, Happy scrappin'!!!

Please let me know when you will be teaching classes! I still haven't figured out how to use Copics.


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???

With that said..........

Thanks and happy scrappin'!!!!
