Miscellaneous Monday

Sometimes the days just seem to go even faster than usual. This past week has been that way. John's schedule fell to where he had the past 5 days off. I love having him home with us during the day, it just goes entirely too fast.

So this weekend I finally got my new scrap space! I have been scrapping in my foyer for the past 6 months. Not such a pretty sight to be greeted by the big ole mess I had piled up in there. I had all my stuff spread out on our dining table and a card table I set up. And that was the first thing you saw when you walked into the house. Anyone that would visit us at home knows what an obsessed scrapper I am, so I didn't worry about it too much, but it was an eyesore and I'm so glad to have it cleaned up. Friday night, while I was at our monthly crop, my brother brought over a media center that my aunt wasn't using anymore. I set this up in the corner of my living room and it has doors! So I can close up the area and you don't see all the stuff. So here it is! Doors closed, just a pretty piece of furniture. Doors open, everything I need for a night of scrapping! The doors have corkboard on the inside which is really handy for hanging small packages of stuff.

As soon as I finish up this post, I plan to spend the rest of the night using this area for the first time. So, Friday night I got quite a few pages done. Here are some of my favorites. I love this picture of John and Natalie. Her facial expression makes me laugh. Sometimes she doesn't like to be kissed. This next one is my scrapjack of Meghan Dymock. Not a style I would typically do, but as I've said before, that's a big reason why I do these challenges.

And this one is for UnPubbed. Another one of my favorite pictures I've taken over the last few weeks.

I did quite a few more, a lot of you have probably already seen them if you're a member over at SISTv, so I'm not gonna repost them all here. If you'd like to see them, you can see the rest here.

And then, total change of subject.. if you remember a few weeks back after the release of the 7th Harry Potter book, I decided I would give the series a go. I just finished up book #4. I am really enjoying them, but also a little disappointed knowing that there will be no more to read soon. Only 3 more to go. At this point, I really feel like Hermione is going to end up being Harry's twin sister, given to Muggle's as a baby. I know I could be way off, so all you HP fans, don't say a word. I don't want to know! LOL Guess that thinking is a little too Star Wars-ish, but it just keeps popping up in my head.
