Gettin' my ART on!!!

I am counting the minutes! I am so looking forward to this weekend! Mom and I and a bunch of friends are heading up to Portsmouth NH for Cool Crops, a scrapbooking/art-making retreat we go to every year. Since I am at work and don't have access to my pictures, check out this post for a little taste of what last year's weekend was like. I got the unexpected surprise and huge blessing of being able to leave work early yesterday so I got all my supplies packed up. Now all I have to do is toss my clothes in my weekend bag tonight and Mom and I will be all set to hit the road tomorrow morning! Once again we are bringing way too much stuff. Everyone does. It's all good. You never know what you may want to have with you. Inevitably I always end up wanting something that I did not bring but I have more than I will ever use in one weekend! I have so many projects swimming around in my head that I want to work on! I plan on making a mini-album of pictures from our QVC trip this past summer. I need to add some pages to my current Fall Journal. I need to get my December/Christmas journal/album set up and ready to go. I am using this very cool red felt album from Making Memories. Love. And, then of course, there are random layouts that I will add to my random album!


So that is about it for now. I won't be bringing my laptop with me because that would leave Kevin without a computer for the weekend (we are currently a one-computer home at the moment...) but my Mom may bring hers. If she does I may try to update while I am there. If not, have a fabulous weekend my lovelies. I will be back Sunday night!!!

Oh have fun. I'm a little jealous. I was supposed to have a scrapbook weekend too, but some friends canceled on me and now I don't want to go there by myself. Hope you get a lot done and have tons of creativity come to you. Have a great weekend:)

Also, I am so happy to hear that you and your mom get to do such great things together. I wish my mom and I lived closer!

I cannot wait to see what you have made! I always love seeing your creativity. NO one does paper like YOU.

Can I just whine a little here? I am happy for ya, don't get me wrong, but I miss your ass when you're without internet access, I really do.

We're gonna have to fit you with some sort of chip or something, so you can update us at all times......
