Found the air dry clay, it was just where I had put it! I guess!!! I thought I would be much older when I started to misplace things. Well, I will be 45 years old in 34 days!

I need inspiration!! I have searched all the usual places, e-bay, blogs,websites and magazines. But nothing! I can't get this caption out of my head " CAUGHT SMILING" in fall colors. I have great pictures for this page but I have lost it. It is not the only thing I have lost. I can't find my air dry clay. I know I had it when I was in transition to my new studio. It is like the pink flamingo best friend mis-laid. She called and I sent her some. But I am not giving up on this clay. I know it is here somewhere. I wanted to roll a oak leaf into it and let it dry, then emboss it. Sound pretty easy but I just need to find it and some creativity.

Dear Hubby and I trying to download pictures to this blog. Well, lets see if it goes through. I such a computer dumbie. I usually just run across it and work through it. Any way, my dear hubby and I were at the beach several years ago in this picture. Since ,we both have quit smoking and gained a few pounds. I think I would live on the beach if I had the chance. Hubby ask me ( after all the hurricanes) would you still live on the beach, I told him with no uncertainty that I would. I would just head in-land if there was a threat and re- build again after we were hit. He on the other hand is a country, mountains, hunting fool . Takes me to the beach, only comes out in the morning. I stay out in the sun all day .....Love it!

Lazy Saturday.........You know that feeling, Don't want to do anything. Just be! This is the feeling I have today. I am just being here and not a lot more. I fell so quite, relaxed and free. Maybe free is not the word but relaxed is.....There is major chaos going on around me but I don't hear it. There is a ball game on the radio, cartoons on in the livingroom, the dish washer is going, dryer is on, grandson #1 turning cartwheels in the den, Grandson #2 ( 7 months) is nannnnnnnnnnnna whining in his walker, but I am perfectly relaxed. I wonder how long this will last. Think I will go to my room and close the door, before it ends. And enjoy it !!!!

A page challenge-Thing( s) I Love........ Had to think about this one. Well. The obvious is family, friends, and all the feeling that come along with being in love, being a mother and grandmother. Waking up each morning, being fairly healthy, my home , my world, my god. So what can I create. Maybe something about just ME. I have this little obsession with old jars and buttons. Everytime a jar of buttons come up for auction, I bid. My aunt Callie Ruth gave me a jar several years ago. She was brought up to use everything. I am sure she had cut them off of all her families clothing for years. Only to use the clothing for rags until you could not use them any more. I loved looking at these buttons and thinking they had come from clothing before I was even born. New and old. I realize now that some buttons are worth $ but to me they are worth much more. A memory of days gone and little old women using it all. This is my page - I am a Button Junkie.

And I got new paper in the Jasper store on Saturday. YEAH!!!! I have been picking out pictures to go with all the new pretty paper I got. I even got the camera and took a couple of pictures to go with the paper I got. I need help. Going to have a photo shoot next week with the grandsons, to go with the new black and white paper I got. Got a class on Thursday night, it is going to be good to see my buddies. I was sooo excited with the new paper on Sunday I came up with a cute layout. I would download it if I knew how to. Got to get someone to show me. haha It is a dating layout. Pam's daughter is dating for the first time. I wish I had taken pics of Jessica's first date.

Shhhhhh.......I am all alone in my house. It is soooooo quite you can hear the birds outside and the water in the garden pond. Daughter and grandson's have moved back in ( almost 2 months now). No one is at home but me, on a Saturday, and it is great. Most nights as hubby and I go to bed, I whisper to him "I want my house back". I would never say this to daughter cause I know she is trying to get her head above water. The boys are well, let's face it , they are boys and 7 and 7 months, It is just great to be here with Nanny and PawPaw. They are getting alot of attention. Class went well today. First time at new scrapping store. Had 11 people taking the class. Not back for 1st time to see my work. Even sold the samples. Got feedback from the ladies they want to take a card class next month too. Got a class at Michael's Thursday night, got to get busy and design it. Maybe while the house is quite. Turn on some music and create.

New to the Blog, but I am going to give it a try. It is just like keeping a journal ( I do that) I can do this! Her we go my intro- I am 44, wife, mother of one daughter and grandmother of two grandsons. I Scrapbook, create altered books, love to read, go to auctions ( this is where the junque comes in at) , and I am a member of a organization that raises money for a children's hospital. I do teach scrapbooking classes and really enjoy it. This has been a wonderful time in my life. I am doing what I enjoy and sometimes I even get payed alittle. Well, who am I kidding, I spend it all on supplies. Because I NEED it!!!!!
We recently enlarged a room and now I have a " studio". This has taken alot of my time lately, getting it just like I like it. Hubby realized these are hobbies that are here to stay.
