Okay so maybe I have a good reason....I'll let you decide! I have been working on my new business. I am making stamps, acrylic....I'm designing them and have the equipement to make them and started to produce my stamps! Exciting huh! I think so....I have wanted to have stamps made out of my art for about 10 years now!! But the cost to have someone else make them was too high to ever see a profit without charging everyone an arm and leg! I thought of submitting my work to professional scrapbooking suppliers....don't think I could stand the regection! Plus they may only want a few of my designs and I already have over 35 designs!!! Well I decided that I would investigate what exactly it would take to do what I want. It took alot of research and some monies....Now it is taking alot of time. But after I have all my designs into the computer and ready to make negatives my time will be more evened out!!! At least that is my hopes.....I haven't scrapped since last months tag swap aaaaahhhhh!!!!! And let's NOT get started on my scraproom!!! Which thanks to the group at Paper Popsicles, we are trying to do our rooms together.
Speaking of Paper Popsicles we had a wonderful Fall Fling Crop weekend! I am amazed at how fast these ladies turned out awesome layouts, projects and cards! And the deals at the store were just as amazing!!!! And if you ladies are interested in some wonderful kits...check out Novembers! But they usually sell out fast so don't hesitate! I'm glad I updated my site....need to get back to work!!!

I did get a layout done of my niece and son. I used the September kit "Romantic" from Paper Popsicles. Sorry to say but this is also sold out! I believe you are still able to get in on Octobers kits...and they are just as sweet as the other months! So if you don't want to miss out you better get your order in!
At Paper Popsicles we're have a big Fall Fling come by and get in on some of the fun and freebees! There will be contest and games and prizes. Also there is a search for October Guest Designer!
Well, I had started this post the beginning of September.......BAD BAD BAD......I guess I should finish it and post something!!! It has been very uneventful in my scraproom lately....I did finish my tags for the tag swap at Paper Popsicles and we are starting a new tag swap for the Holidays!!! how exciting! So I can't say I was totally unproductive in my room. Well let's see if I can keep up with the girls at Paper Popsicles and keep my blog updated!!!!

That is what I have in store for the Labor Day weekend....starting tonight! The main PROJECT is tiling the backsplash by my kitchen sink. I only started it in 2002! I can't simply tile I have to paint and bake the tile before installing the tile. The reason it went on hold was I found out I was pregnant and didn't trust the paint fumes. Well baby is 4 1/2 years old! So I need to finish this project! Hubby will be happy to see it completed!
IDEAS come in the form of Scrap layouts and art designs. Also tags, we are having a tag swap at Paper Popsicles. There is 10 ladies participating, it's going to be SOOO much fun!
The RESEARCH is about starting our own business. Hubby likes the sound of that "our". I have been looking into business license, product developement, funding.....ugh!
As for these layouts they are from Paper Popsicles supplies! Actually Augusts' kit which is no longer available! Sorry, but take a peek at Septembers and Octobers kits! If your interested get them early....they have been going FAST! I haven't been disappointed with anything from Paper Popsicles!
The "future gardener?" is my son being curious. He would take the fake fruit and veggies in and out of the basket! "In Line" is a photo of my son's master work of lining things up. He took his favorite book "Bear snores on" and put his bears in a line over the top of the book. It was too cute and had to get a photo of it! I still smile thinking of him hunting for stuffed bears to put together!
Well that is about what my Labor Day is going to be about, hope yours is enjoyable! Until next week, keep busy!

This is one of the latest I've done. I love taking photos of my son sleeping, he doesn't do it enough! This is also the last of my Piggy Tales "Frog Prince" papers, did I mention how much I love these! Well tonight is the last night for the DT call at Piggy Tales....Yes I submitted and yes I'm a nervous wreck. Probably why I've been scrappin so much! They don't call the new DT until Aug. 29 and they are not posting the winners on their site until Sept.1 so talk about more time to be nervous! I also submitted to October Afternoon. I found it on pub calls and I believe it's a new site. They have more than just stamps. They have beautiful country paper and tags also some wonderful rubons! And since I also submitted to them, just something else to worry about! What I really need to do is start submitting my artwork to manufacturers. How cool would that be scrappin with my own products that I designed! But like alot of artists the fear of the unknown and the chance of being regected holds us back. Looking at these words I just wrote and thinking, how foolish! I could be doing something I love and sharing my ideas with the scrap-world. Not to mention helping the family financially and still be here for my boy! Well, I guess I had more to post than I thought! Enjoy the weekend coming up! Play alot and laugh more!!! I have some drawings to work on and submit!

I've been busy chatting on the forum there also. A bunch of wonderful ladies to talk with! Come visit, stay and chat at the forum, join our group in the very least, check out some of the awesome theme packs and kits Melissa sells at very affordable prices! I'd love to show some of the pages I've been working on, but not until after the call is done. I do have one project I can show you! It's an organizer I designed and built out of necessity,for my scrapbooking machines! I haven't put the finishing touches on it...had to get busy scrapping, but the basic unit is here.
It's 27" high x 30" wide x 14" deep....not to big but gets things off the floor!
