1st Year Calendar.

I didn't get all the pictures- but enough. This is for a friend who just had a baby. It's a great calendar that can be written in and then torn out later to insert into a scrapbook. Baby's first year- easy as pie!

I do hate to do generic album pages with no pictures- but I know she'll want tons of pictures, and this should work. I stuck my own pictures on it (so she could see as well- not a scrapper) for sizing. And so I wouldn't completely lose my mind.

2 crops in 2 weeks: this is what happens.

Now, my room is usually messy- but NOT like this. The last 2 weekends have been busy. I've been to 2 crops (Friday nights,) had sleep over's, making dinner's for my neighbor, trips to Missoula, and just normal family life.

I've gotten into the habit of just throwing stuff on the bed. Stacking on the floor. Pawing through the closet in hopes of finding my most favorite envelope template that wasn't where it was supposed to be.

So, here are the before pictures. Don't laugh (unless you take pictures of YOUR craft room and I can laugh too) it's not nice. :)

I do plan on attacking the closet too. Because of the envelope issue. My husband only grunted. But, it's gotta be done. I know what I want to do to my closet- those nifty stack a thing's, but I need measurements so I know exactly what I need.

Home Depot- I'm coming up tomorrow!

I'm also thinking it's time for a new color. Joe REALLY grunted when I said that. What can I say, I get bored easily, and I like change.

Our living room has been painted twice since we've moved in (almost 3 yrs.) So, this little room shouldn't be a problem. My mom might even give her thumb's up. Her response to the room was: "It looks like a tangerine threw up."

Can you tell she loved the color?

I like bold, crazy colors. But I'm thinking I want to go back to my soft green that I had in Kuna.

Joe didn't comment at all when I shared this with him this morning (around 5:30am.)

I wonder how painful it would be to cover the orange...


It's a girl (CPS swap)



It's mine, all mine!

I buy when I get sad. So I made a nice purchase this weekend, and Mr. Brown delivered it today. A day where I had a hell-day at school, and needed a pick me up again. I forgot it was coming till I saw it after the basketball game. YAY!
