New Followers...YAY!

I've picked up a couple of new followers in the past few days...thanks ladies! I love making new crafty friends!

Those that have been with me for a while know that due to my children being in FL for the summer (visiting grandparents) I am without a camera. It's KILLING me! Ok, that's a little dramatic but it's REALLY hard. First, it's hard because I'm crafting all these adorably cute projects without being able to share them with you guys and second, I. MISS. BLOGGING. There, I've said it and I feel much better. Who knew I would miss typing into this little white box so much? A few years ago when I tried "the blog thang" I hated it! I always felt that if I missed a day or two here and there I might as well just give up. And so I did. Give up, that is.

This time around blogging is just so much more fun...must be due to my older, more mellow self! HA! HA! I turned 40 a few months ago and instead of being all upset and depressed about that I find myself crediting it any time someone points out something positive in my character. I'm more mellow? Must be because I'm 40 now. I'm more patient? Must be because I'm 40 now. You enjoyed that meal I cooked? Must be because I'm 40 now.

So anyHOO, maybe I'll just blog about the randomness of my life for the next couple of weeks. I should have my children AND MY CAMERA home by the middle of July. (I'm really much more excited about having my children home...seriously.)

Go craft something!

A Blogging Dilemma

Good morning, friends!

My parents came, they visited, they took the children back to Florida! 

For those who don't know, my children go to FL every summer with my parents for several weeks. Right now I'm in that "excited to have some quiet time and have tons of fun stuff planned" stage; soon, I will cross over to the "I MISS my children SOOOOO much, they are NEVER going to FL for this long again EVERRRR crying" stage. Happens every year. It used to take me by surprise, now I'm ready for it! 

So anyHOO...the dilemma. Quite a while ago, (prior to re-launching my blog into primarily my online craft spot) I lost my camera. (I know, I know...what kind of scrapbooker doesn't have a camera???!) So, the only way I've been able to take pictures of my creations to share with all of you has been by using my daughter's iPod. That thing takes UH-mazing pictures! I WILL own one of those puppies one day...probably won't be until I've got the children grown and gone but ONE DAY! But I digress...Baby girl took the iPod to FL, of course. So, now I'm back to no camera. Boo-hoo. I thought I had come up with the perfect "plan B" the other night; using my laptop's web cam! Sounds good, right? Well, I can't get the darn thing on! I played around with it once or twice when I first bought the laptop (so I know it worked!) but I've not used it in forever. I spent an hour the other night trying to figure out how to get into it...failed. So, long story short...for the next 5 weeks (yes, they go for that you know why the crying stage eventually comes!) my little blog will be picture-less. (anyone have a spare camera laying around?!) As I do with most things in life, I'm choosing to see the silver lining here...I'll get to focus a lot more on writing...or, I'll get bored with that and let it sit idle for the next 5's a toss-up

Now, I'm off to craft a totally quiet craft room! YIPPEE!!!
