I am so glad it is Friday. It was kind of a long week, and I am ready to find a bed and have a long nap!
This layout that was in the Creating Inspirations Newsletter is how I feel today, I kinda just want to hide, recuperate and get some juice back in my coconut!
So glad, got my car back this afternoon, yay! That is a very good thing, I am so happy to not be driving Tyler's car anymore. Again perfect for him, for me not so much!
Went on a nice long walk this morning with a friend, it was a beautiful day and we had such a pleasant chat. really needed that!
I also received my kit to work on for Creating Inspirations for October, and lets just say it SERIOUSLY ROCKS!
Got my layout done for the Method Playground and it is a really fun challenge, I hope that it inspires others to play with their art! Go look on Monday for the layouts we all did and what the technique will be! I have to admit that this technique was really a challenge for me! So if I can do it, so can you!

So a good thing I was really excited about was the October Scrapbooks Etc. had this layout I did in it!
The bummer was that I had my name spelled wrong and that I still haven't received my check for it because they had my mailing address wrong!
A good thing was getting to play tennis and have a luncheon get together with all of my favorite tennis girls, and celebrating a dear friends birthday! The bummer was that after tennis my Yukon died and now it is in the shop and I am driving Tyler's "vintage" (read as old pos) Porsche 944, perfect car for a teenage boy, not so much for a carpooling mom!
Another good thing is that I am busy with scrapbooking, it has me wondering whether to sit or stand, the bummer is that I make no money for any of my work! Gotta a love a hobby that is so encompassing that you become an enthusiast (right April?)
Just wanted to clarify that I am not going to Denver until next weekend, and of course I am very excited! Just to add a fun silly me twist to the whole thing, my kids reminded me that they have Friday off from school and they are glad that I will be gone because when it is just them and dad they get away with more. Great.
Anyway, mixed bag or not, life is still good, and I am grateful for all I have and all I get to do, very worth the roller coaster!

That is the number of hits that we got on the Method Playground blog yesterday!
We are having such a great learning experience, and we are so grateful for all of the people who are helping us put it together and who are as excited to play as we are!
I got to go and hang out at Paper Creations for a few hours last night with a couple of digi-gals that I just adore, and we spent some time getting to know each other. I needed some time out of the house, and this was a great way to get it!
Anyway, got a lot to do and tennis is the mens semi-finals and the women's finals today at the US Open, have to keep up with that!

Can you tell that I am a little excited about the coming season?!!! I just love the fall and Halloween is just the best most fun holiday pretty much ever!
Anyway, got tons of stuff to do, and dinner is calling!

I wonder why the things that I can't get done don't do themselves.
I wonder why my kids feel the need to have something right then and now when it just can't be done right then and now.
I wonder why people don't do what they say they are going to do when they say they are going to do it (I am guilty of this and wonder why I don't just do it when I said I was going to!)
I wonder why dinner can't just make itself.
I wonder why I can't just accept somethings as they are and get over them.
I wonder about many important political issues also (constantly) but I won't share those thoughts.
I wonder about many social issues also, but can't immediately fix them so try not to be depressed about them.
I wonder about spiritual growth as well, and wish I had more energy to pursue these interests.
I wonder when life will simplify.
I wonder when I will stop complicating my own life.
Does anyone else ever wonder?

I have really enjoyed making 6x12 layouts this summer, they are fast and just make me smile! I had these little pics of Chloe that were so cute, but I was just struggling to find a way to share them, and this kit was just perfect! The velvet letters are making memories and were not included in the kit, but everything else was!
I will share the newsletter layout after it is sent out, that project ended up being my favorite from this kit!
It is a wonderful weather day here in Utah, it is overcast and not to hot or cold, I love it! I have spent the day working on some fun holiday projects that I will be teaching in Vancouver B.C. in November. So the smell of Modge Podge is heavy in the air too, gotta love it!
