More sneaks

We made it through the hurricane, what a pretty day it is here. Wish I would have taken photos of my yard before the storm, it's looking a little battered now. :( But otherwise no damage. Scary last night though, really loud at times. My neighbor lost some siding!

A few more sneaks for you:

Hope you will join us for the reveal at Cocoa Daisy! Until tomorrow.

Sneaking in quickly

Cocoa Daisy's Sept sneaks:

This has been a rough week. Earthquakes and traffic at the beginning. Now running around like a chicken with my head cut off at the end in preparation for this hurricane. I'll be working on the rest of my pages after we lose electricity and there is nothing left to do. Happy weekend to you! Until tomorrow. Be safe East Coasters. :)

Sometimes I forget. . .

Struggling today to find my motivation. It's like my get-up-and-go, got up and went. And sometimes I forget:

1. That I'm a mom of a busy 4 year old.
2. That I work a demanding full time job.
3. That I make 57+ decisions a day.
4. That I don't have a maid or a gardener. (Rats, oh well.)
5. That I don't have a cook either. (double rats)
6. Or a dog-walker. (you get the idea)
7. Or an accountant. (Argh)
8. That I'm also a wife, a daughter, sister, and friend.
9. That I have a chronic illness.
I can get so lost in my head, so busy doing the next thing. But I really believe that to call yourself a scrapbooker, you have to scrapbook. And I'm working toward scrapbooking more. This past year I've made strides to simplify and organize the house/yard. This has freed up a lot of time (of course laundry seems to eat up more than it's fair share but still). And yet, I'm still not very efficient about using that time. I can't say I'm so busy I don't have time. I know I do, I just don't know how to use the chunks I end up with. But I'm working on it. :)
I forgot to share this page for Cocoa Daisy, and now the kit is sold out with just a few add-ons for sale. It's Christmas in August:

Happy Thursday to you! Until tomorrow. (Please come fast weekend, I'm ready.)

Everyday page

An everyday page with the Cocoa Daisy kit Siren's call. This is a take on a sketch provided by Lisa Pace. (Sketch = very good; Me following directions = not quite as good. But close enough for government work. :) ) The Cosmo cricket paper in the middle kind of looks like a border?Honestly, borders intimidate me. :) This is my favorite page this month, the subject just makes me laugh. I love pages that make me laugh.
A rainy day here, but welcome after the hot weather we have had. Will be back with another page tomorrow. Happy Wednesday to you! Until tomorrow.

Procrastination (And Summer Cocoa Daisy Pages)

Sharing some pages today with Cocoa Daisy's August kit Siren's Call:
(Vee, do you remember this day?) I love these photos, taken with my Blackberry phone. And I finally caught the ice cream truck. It's only taken two summers, really. :)
What an amazing kit this was. I'll be sharing more tomorrow. Until then. (No, I mean it, tomorrow. :) )
