Ever can't concentrate on what is being said?
Today at church, there was a 3 year old singing softly to herself, sneezes coughs, clearing of the throat, opening of candy, a child left and went to the restroom, an adult left during the sermon, we have a member who is on call and her walkie talkie thing beeped a time or two, the mother of the three year old shhhhhing, more coughs, and more candy being opened, the grandmother of the three year old shhhhhhing, another sneeze or two, raining outside .....oh, it is getting harder and harder, more candy wrapper noise, I need to remember to put a mint or two in my purse, cause I could use a piece too, throat is a little scratchy, hope I am not coming down with something, people shifting in their set, three year old still singing......, member got up and closed a door to the back, nursery is getting loud, more coughing, a child in front of us is asking nanny for a piece of candy.....
Can I tell you what the sermon was about this morning?

How many scrapbooking pages do you think you complete in a year?
I was thinking last night about this, I know my creativity comes in limited doses. I completed 10 or more pages during Christmas and New Years. And only 2 since then. When I go to crops, I only get a few completed, if any. It is the fellowship, I go for.
I came across a Blog, where her goal was 52 pages in a year, that"s just one a week. Or was they 2-page layouts?
Could I do this?
A set each week.
Well, I am willing to give it a try.
It seems I have once again added a challenge to this blog.
Have a good week!
*side note*
Picture is of the Journal goodie bag made for Jerri's Junque. They still lay on my table and has yet been packaged and added to the store inventory.
Starting classes tonight at the shop.
Been cleaning out and re arranging, new year , new start.
Classes will now be every 1st and 3rd Tuesday nights.
With a few Crops in between for fellowship.

Friday Challenge #2 ( 1-12-07)
Okay, it is a little early and the picture did not turn out like I wanted it too, but the challenge is
tell about your street.
I hope the frost shows up on my 35 MM camera.
We live so far off the main road that I decided to take a picture from about 1/2 way up the driveway.

Give a two year old ( well, almost 2) a balloon and you get at least 20 minutes of peace.
But he is like a elephant and never forgets the drawer where I found the balloon.
So every morning I have to blow up a balloon, and every morning I get 20 minutes to drink my coffee.
I need to put balloons on my shopping list.

As promised, a look at one of my new "jerri junque" goodie bags. As you see this has a Christmas theme. it is a smaller package with vintage Christmas cards, cancelled stamps, a frostie bottle cap that reminds me of Christmas, little tags, a pamphlet with Christmas music and more. Do you think these will sell? maybe another peep tomorrow. Took pictures of this Fridays challenge this morning. It is so pretty outside with the frost. Have a good day.

As you know I am a junque collector. And have a small section in my shop with "jerri's junque". My ultimate day is junking in dark dusty corner of antique shops and flea malls. Finding that vintage game, a box of old 50's Christmas cards , or a jar of buttons can make my afternoon. Over the years I have gathered quite a collection and every so often I decide to let go of a few items. These items are not acid free, but can be used in your altered projects. They have been used and abused. Each theme bag are one of a kind, but are limited to only a few different themes. I will try and take a few pic in the morning for a sneak preview.

Grandson #1 wanted to go to Build a bear for Christmas. There was no time, so we went last week, before he went back to school. He was so excited. He wanted a panda, and was a little disappointed to not find one. But when he saw this black bear, he knew it was the one. If you are like me and have not been to this shop, it is worth the trip and the $40.00. The look on this little mans face was worth it all.
I would like to introduce you to
Cole Wood.

Random Thought on the New Year
I want to take this year by storm, push ahead, start anew, this will be the first day of the rest of your life. New year has always brought this attitude, wanting to start new, clean, uncluttered. Today I drag myself back to work, wanting to completely change the look of the shop, rearrange, start over. The overpowering urge to simpify, uncluttered my shop, my home, the end, result my life. Would this make things easier? I did not make a New Year Resolution, but this overwhelming feeling to simpify still owns me. Stay tuned......
Just thought everyone would get a kick out of this.....
