Found a new site that I thought would be interesting. Check it out. I've been having trouble uploading the image I created so if you have better luck, let me know. I kept trying to download the image so I could do a layout and lost it. I may try to recreate aother one and try it again. In the meantime, enjoy the site.

Last Hurrah

Last night was a Last Hurrah for the Scrapbook Fever team at Pam's house, and we had a blast! Everyone brought a dish to share and we ate all night long! I don't think I have laughed so much in a long long time. We each shared a story about our time with Lorrie. We then played a game (Chinese Swap?) ,where we brought a wrapped item and drew numbers. Then we got to steal it or pick one that hadn't been opened yet. We couldn't stop laughing all night long.

These ladies have so much talent, humor, fun loving attitudes, and passion for scrapbooking. I will miss all of the different techniques each one shared with me. I will miss seeing everyone come in on their day off to visit with whoever was working that day. I will miss going to Scrapbook Fever just to say hi.
We cannot lose touch and plan on having a get together in December. Plus we will have our monthly scraps to look forward to!
Until next time....

Fever Friends Scrappy

Well Ike missed Austin all together and we had our Fever Friends 1st all day Scrappy on Saturday. Had a great time with a total of 16 scrappers who stayed most of the day. A couple more who came to visit with promises of scrapping in October! Took a couple of pictures but haven't had a chance to download them yet. I will post them later.

We decided to take up a donation at each scrappy and everyone who donates can put a charity name in a jar to donate the money we collected. This time we collected $60.00 and drew the Red Cross. I'm sending the money today to the local chapter. Great job scrappers!

More later.....

I know it's been on everyone's mind and in everyone's prayers that today is the 7th anniversary of that awful day. I hope every one has taken the time to say a prayer for future protection of the U.S. and healing for all of the people who lost a loved one that day. I hope that all of us will remember the unity we all felt in the days that followed, and keep it alive throughout the rest of our lives. I pray that we never again have another attack on our soil. God Bless America.

Alot of news about Ike hitting the Texas coast this weekend. I hope he slows down and does not cause alot of damage. The weather people are saying we'll get some severe weather up here in the Austin area.

We're planning on having an all day scrap at my church on Saturday. I know the weather will affect the turnout. This is a way for the Scrapbook Fever group of ladies to keep in touch. We all were so saddened by the closing and did not want to lose touch. It won't replace SBF but it will keep new friends in contact. Hopefully a little rain won't stop us! All I can say is "BRING UMBRELLAS"


I just had to post this photo. My grandson saw a guy with a mohawk and asked his mom if he could get his hair cut like that. She saw no harm in letting him have fun prior to starting school (he is only 4) better get these things out of the way before he has to conform to school rules. So here he is. He really thought he was "hot stuff" At least it isn't blue!

Did ya ever?

Did you ever start a project and just know that you had the perfect embellie "somewhere" in your stash? I had one of those days yesterday. I was working on a layout and remembered I had a stash of flowers that would be perfect for the page. So I started looking in all of my bins, my bags (since I've been going to crops and retreats), etc. After about 2 hours and finding things I had forgotten I owned, I gave up. In fact I almost forgot what I was looking for! Moral to this story??? I need to get more organized. How do you store all of your embellies?

Day 2

Thought I would share a photo of my sweet little puppy. His name is Chico and he turned 1 on August 5th. We have had Chico for about 5-6 months. I have to brag here, he is just too darn cute and we have taught him to sit, beg, down, shake, and toy. He loves to get his toy and play for as long as you will toss it for him. He has the sweetest disposition I've ever seen and thinks all humans were put on this earth for him!

First post ever

Alrighty Then. I've been told it is time for me to start my own blog spot so here I am. I've been enjoying several blogs in the past few months and hope I can be as creative as my mentor Pam! Thanks for all of your encouragement! Since picking the name Nani I can promise that I will do my best not to bore you with grandmotherly ramblings. Although with 5 wonderful grandchildren it will be hard not too!

Off to learn more about how to add photos, profiles,etc. Wish me luck!
