CMK work and a blog header!

I am finally able to upload the images I created with the CMK October mini Halloween kit. Yay! I have had them sitting on Kara's camera since September. Some days I really dislike our computer and Kara's camera. *sigh* I created the blog header with the kit as well. Something fun for October!

I want to scrap. I seriously miss scrapping. I feel so uncreative and blah without it. I have ideas swarming and overflowing in my head and when the time comes to empty them onto paper, nothing comes out. My mojo is still stuck on zero and it really stinks. I tried to scrap last night, but after 45 minutes of pushing paper and pics around I decided that I just need to wait and try again. Hopefully after Katie leaves today I will have some ideas.

I have even slowly been cleaning and purging my scrappy area once again, and rediscovering older supplies is always fun. I am gathering some things together for Kara's DECA class to use, too. Sometimes I look at all my stuff and wonder why? What was I thinking? It seems so *gasp* wasteful now, but at the time it wasn't. LOL! I think of all the money I have spent and it almost makes me want to stop buying, but I do know that I have become pretty selective about what I do purchase so I have minimal guilt as my eyes travel from one packed shelf to another. I feel most guilty that I am not using any of it. I have pretty much just done DT work along with a handful of layouts in the past 2 months. Yikes! I know it's mostly because of my foot. It's a comfort issue. If I stand too long, I can feel my ankle and leg swell even though I don't bear weight upon it, and if I sit too long my foot falls asleep and starts to ache.

My foot is finally feeling much better again. I slipped last week and landed hard on my foot, which set me back once again. I did some serious resting last weekend though so it is feeling much better. I sat and read, watched TV, worked some puzzle books and played some board games with the girls. All in all it was OK. My body really needed the break. Sometimes I kick myself for volunteering to watch Katie. The days I have her take a toll on me and usually I end up having to take a pain pill after she leaves. It's really a day to day thing. Some days are better than others, but that's true with pretty much everything in life.

Cross Country has ended for Skye. She had a great time and is looking forward to basketball starting up next month. I am happy to see her trying some new things out and embracing everything school has to offer. It's going to help her become a well-rounded person and she will have such pride in herself. Hopefully she will continue to enjoy several activities and sports all throughout the rest of Middle and High School.

Take care!


  1. Wow, Rae! I really love your projects and the blog header rocks!!! What a cooool idea!! It's so fun to see how we all used the same products so differently!

  2. Rae, your stuff ROCKS!! I love your banner! :) Have a great day!

  3. Rae, your work is great! I'm kind of where you are; I want to scrap, but I don't know where to start. The DT people are so awesome and the kits are so beautiful that I feel intimidated. I haven't really done a project with any of CMK stuff and I've been a member for two months! Part of the reason for that is that I'm waiting for some pictures to be developed, but even still...

    Anyway, knowing that even you lose your mojo at times does make me feel a little better.

  4. Your work is GREAT!

    Hang in there!


I thank you so much for your kind comments! :) Have a beautiful day.
