Monday Daybook goodbye March!

FOR TODAY… March 29, 2010

Outside my window… a little bit of sun and cooler after the rain we got last night. They say it may be almost 80 by Thursday!!!!

I am thinking… that in just 10 days I will be with my family!!!!

I am thankful for… good test results for P!

I am wearing… black tuxedo shirt my booty bling jeans and new black boots.

I am remembering… that I really did get an absolute TON of stuff done this weekend even though it wasn’t stuff I wanted to be doing! Some of it even was fun!

I am going… to go home and scrap. MUST GET WTG layout done!!!

I am currently reading… still working on the Kim Harrison.

I am hoping… that my new skin meds work soon.

On my mind… WTG, getting easter cards done and mailed, spring cleaning.

Noticing that… when we work together it’s much more fun!

Pondering these words… What's the point of havin' a rapier wit if I can't use it to stab people? - Jeph Jacques

From the kitchen… Veggies from Folks. Yumm!

Around the house… putting up laundry, setting up my new storage boxes in my studio.

One of my favorite things… tangerine zinger tea.

From my picture journal… im a slacker and don't have anything :(

Monday Daybook Happy Spring!

FOR TODAY… March 22, 2010

Outside my window… grey and blech. It actually snowed this morning. Can’t complain too much it was 70+ on Saturday. Spring is definitely here!

I am thinking… about color. I hate that the house is so colorless. I changed my wardrobe, now to work on P and get him to let me paint something!

I am thankful for… P. He surprised me with tickets to Fiddler on the Roof staring Harvey Fierstein. It was one of the nicest evenings we have spent in a long while!

I am wearing… teal sweater, jeans, black half boots.

I am remembering… I need to get going on the next WTG challenge!

I am going… to take a nap I think.

I am currently reading… The Good, The Bad , The dead by Kim Harrison. More urban fantasy to lose myself in.

I am hoping… that the warm weather comes back soon. I really want to plant a garden.

On my mind… check engine lights

Noticing that… Ive been in a better mood lately. Don’t know why but I will take it.

Pondering these words… wildflower garden

From the kitchen… probably another super salad with all sorts of crazy toppings.

Around the house… O need to clean the kitchen floor. Who ever put white tile in a kitchen should be shot (right along side the idiot who put in white carpet in the living room)

One of my favorite things… Live theater. I totally miss it.

From my picture journal…

Mon/Wed Daybook-Happy St Particks Day!

FOR TODAY… March 17, 2010

Outside my window… grey and drab.

I am thinking… I may need to add the hip hop class to my Tuesday workout.

I am thankful for… friends and family that will listen to me vent when I need to.

I am wearing… Kelly green ON blouse, black pencil skirt, really really green tights and black boots. I love being faux Irish!

I am remembering… dyed green bagels and milk as a kid on St Patrick's day.

I am going… to buy my tickets to PA today!!!!!!

I am currently watching… Dexter. My new obsession.

I am hoping… I didn’t totally fuck up my job with the trade show drama.

On my mind… Spring wardrobe, visit with family, stupid job stress.

Noticing that… the daffodils in the yard are almost ready to bloom.

Pondering these words… dolly downsizing.

From the kitchen… Maybe nothing. I’m hoping we go out tonight to celebrate the green!

Around the house… I soooo want to do some painting this spring!

One of my favorite things… colored tights.

From my picture journal…

I am thinking… I really need to get some prep work done for upcoming crops.

I am thankful for… an organized closet (more or less)

I am wearing… black sweater with white shirt jeans black ballet flats.

I am remembering… our wonderful outing this weekend.

I am going… to finish my WTG layout early if it kills me.

On my mind… getting my photos edited and ready to print

Noticing that… (well had it pointed out to me)I’ve been a more positive person lately

Pondering these words… Check Engine

From the kitchen… Breadsticks with homemade pesto sauce and a huge salad

Around the house… I am going to try to get down to the garage tonight while it’s so warm.

One of my favorite things… Pesto. Who knew????

From my picture journal… Can you believe this dress looks great on me??

DH ROCKS aka guess what i am doing tonight???

Ive been talking about wanting to go see this movie forever. Im a huge Johnny Depp fan and LOVE his tim burton collaborations.

I am soooo psyched.

The last of the sketches

Im not going to post the sketches (too lazy lol) but here are the last of the layouts I did for ScrapFreak's free February sketch class. Next on the list...Scrapfreak's third birthday bash. One of my favorite events of the year!

Ok I am a couple days posting this but I am super excited. I won a guest design team spot on Scrapfreak for March. I am doubly excited because this means I will be getting one of the new embellishment kits to work with!

Our job was to scrap lift whomever posted after us. I got lucky and had to scrap lift the uber talented scrappincathy. Her style is so different from mine I knew it would be a real challenge for me.

Here is her layout:

Monday Daybook

FOR TODAY… March 1, 2010

Outside my window… another sunny day after a gorgeous weekend so that of course means snow and rain with a high of 35 tomorrow.

I am thinking… about how much spring cleaning I have ahead of me!

I am wearing… grey baby doll dress, black leggings and black motorcycle boots.

I am remembering… how much fun I had when Kim was here. I miss her!

I am going… to try and get more exercise in this week. I’ve been totally slack about doing any at home. Now with all the room in the LR- no more excuses!

I am currently reading… Unwind on my KINDLE!!!!

I am hoping… for a little time to scrap this week. I didn’t get anything done this weekend and now I have a real itch!

On my mind… getting my photos edited and ready to print

Noticing that… my clothes are fitting better and better!

Pondering these words… laptop vs. budget,

From the kitchen… for me- more lean cuisine, for P no idea. I totally need to do some meal planning.

Around the house… putting up laundry, cleaning the garage and studio
