happy thursday!!

okay, so maybe i will try to post bi-weekly... you know life just keeps coming at me and i have not enough hours to accomplish everything {whine, whine}. i know... the same is for you, how did we all get so busy??

i now have five children a week that i care for, maybe that adds some more to my list of ways that i lose more time... hmmm. i have been trying to be a mom, wife, early childhood practitioner, friend, scrapper, etc. i definitely need more than 24 hours in a day to do all that!!

the weather here today is beautiful. fall crisp air, but sunshine outta this world. leaves on the ground everywhere...picture perfect fall day!!!

i have done a few projects, i am never sure what i have posted and what i haven't posted when it gets so spread out between postings, i know... that is my fault!! well i will post some of the latest creations. oh... i almost forgot to mention, i am the mosy member of the month for november at the mosy scrapper. check out the message board & blog at http://themosyscrapper.forumakers.com . that is also where i am doing the 12 weeks of Christmas contest and each week create some type of project for there, getting some things for me {and a few gifts!!} taken care of!! :)

okay, well here's the projects and don't forget to keep writing those gratitudes down... here are a few of my latest:*a beatutiful, autumn day~sunny, warm, breezy & leaves falling everywhere! *spending the morning with mom & caiti at a craft show *movie night with david, caiti & andrew {& homemade chocolate chip cookies-made by me!} *my washing machine {fixed!! woo hoo!!} *my GRATITUDE journal.

I love each and every one of these projects. Your believe frame is outstanding. I also love your altered box as well. I think you really rocked the layout with the Basic Grey and the three pictures of the kids, I am just sorry that other people don't get your talent. I understand what you mean about not enough time, but you have done a wonderful job at being my friend.
