Journalling reads: This is my NEAR brush with FAME! I didn't actually meet Tim Holtz, but I did win this photo, autographed embossing tin, and his distressing inks at Scrappink 9-29-07
Then I got these 2 birthday cards done for a birthday party tomorrow. -->
I still need to get a couple father's day cards done and 3 thank yous. I really need to have a card stash on hand!

Yet...at times, this trait seems to be such a curse. I always mean well...yet I find myself inadvertently over stepping bounds, saying/suggesting things I probably shouldn't, and damaging relationships. I even think it hinders me as a parent....I totally have to check myself and just let my daughter be. I wish I could find a way to harness the good parts of this personality without allowing the bad aspects to cause damage.
As you can see...I'm feeling a little raw today and at a cross roads. I have damaged yet another relationship and my attempts to repair it have failed. I am unsure what to do next. I wish I could be more like my husband...he'd just brush it off and move on. The problem is I don't really want to move on. What to do, what to do?

Here is the one that took me a week and well I'm thinking it is a little weak...I changed up the design so many times because I just couldn't get all the things I was doing to work together. -->
Journalling reads: This is me when I was 7. Oh to be young, innocent, and free!
This one is simple but sweet. I don't mind the flowers on this Grandpa page...he would have loved them! -->
Journalling reads: This photo brings a smile to my face. I'm about 18 mths old. Grandpa Bob was a nature lover, great fisherman, and wonderful Grandfather. Her passed away at 55 yrs. old in 1974. I was 10.
Ok...another note. I'm having the worst time getting good phots of my layouts in the new house. I had a great system in the old house that I just can't seem to duplicate. Either I end up washing out the layout or I have dark patches...ARGH!And, while I'm talking about miracles...I ate a healthy lunch today! Lunch is my nemesis! I always seem to be out and about around lunch time and well...fast food is soo convenient! Anyway I had tuna salad on a whole wheat pita with lettuce and tomato. Topped off with Ranier cherries!! YUM!

Then we went up to Iowa City and Coralville to check out another mall and find some more furniture stores. We found a smaller mall with a huge play place in it. Kelly had a blast! She ran around for an hour! But we did not find any furniture stores. Weird...I thought for sure there would be some around the malls...Oh well...we will head up to Davenport today.
Now...I think I'm going to take a LOT of flack from my fellow scrappy friends because I don't have one picture from either of these scrap worthy events!!! LOL!!! I forgot my camera!!! I've been soo busy with moving and everything else that I have gotten out of practice taking and using my camera!! Be easy on me ladies! LOL!!

Then Friday night I went to a crop!!! WOOHOO...It was great to get out and scrap again. Although, I'm becoming an at home scrapper. I didn't really plan what I was going to do and just didn't have what I needed again. Oh well...it was great to get out and meet some new people. I have a couple layouts to finish from that night.
Then my Dad and MaryLou came for a visit. So...we played pinochle, showed them around town, went out to dinner. Plus...my Dad...his generousity is AMAZING...purchased a yard tractor for us. We have almost an acre to cut and our push mower would not do the job anymore! Thank you DAD!!!!! I love you soo much!
We mad them a big breakfast Sunday morning and then they went to visit MaryLou's brother who lives 20 minutes away in West Liberty! Go figure! When we lived in Atlanta, we lived 30 minutes from her other brother! Small world!
Then we had a spontaneous road trip. We decided to go to the mall. It is in Coralville, about 45 minutes from here. WOW...It felt like we were in civilization again! We spent the day shopping and caught a movie...IRONMAN...Loved it...the movie and the day. I think we just needed a family day of just us not doing anything! I do feel a little recharged after that.
Now...back to life! LOL!!!
