  • i am so not good at this blogging thing!
  • i just don't have the time to do it the way i really want to do it.
  • i love the artsy ones, the thoughtful posts & of course the ones with amazing photos!
  • i am feeling rather inspired lately by my surroundings.
  • inspired to create, but not just scrapbook LO's & such.
  • i have been having this urge lately to do more.
  • to create more.
  • i just wish i had the time & the skills to create some of the things that are running around in my mind lately.
  • i have had this deep desire to create my own stuff.
  • maybe some day my dream will come true.
  • for now i will continue to create with what i have available to me.
  • and soon i will share my latest CMK kit projects.
  • if you love Pink Paislee you will love this kit....i promise!
but maybe it's just the Dr P talking!!!

see ya later alligator!

that's what friends are for....

RUN - thanks to my dear friend Rachel i have started running again! let's preface this by the fact that i HATE running. yes, you read me right! but it is a very good way to get your self going & having some motivation to work out regular is very helpful. thank you Rachel for suggesting this torture. i just have to keep reminding myself that i am truly grateful as each foot pounds the road. i have been surviving my runs but i know from past experience the running never gets any more fun or easy. it always hurts! but it is good for me & i am looking forward to the 5K we are going to run together at the end of september.

WORK - i got another raise at work! yeah me!!!!

FUN - we went camping this past weekend with my parents at Sam A. Baker. the weather was perfect & we had a really wonderful weekend. putting the tent together for the first time each season is always a little challenging but we managed to get it up before dark. i was very excited to have had the opportunity, thanks to the wonderful world of technology (my dad took his satellite dish!) to watch Michael Phelps win #7 & #8 of his gold medals. that guy is a stud & a half in the water!!!

back to the camping...we went hiking, roasted marshmallows, cooked & ate all of our meals outdoors & i got to fall asleep listening to "the bugs" (one of my favorite summer sounds)

now i am off to scrap a little. still not feeling inspired. but i really do love the new Pink Paislee stuff i have in my hands so hopefully i'll have some fun with it!
