Where Has The Time Gone???

I completely forgot about this blog.  So very sad.  Now that my soon-to-be 9 year old daughter knows I have it, I'm sure she'll remind me that I need to post in it.  I've attended a few scrapbooking retreats and a few crops over the past year, I'll try to scan in some of the things that I've made.  And get this, in addition to bringing a few friends over to "the dark side" (LOL) now my husband is getting into the scrappin' too.  He's very good at it but he has a bit of an advantage over me seeing how he is a graphic artist and all.  :\   I'll try to do better this year.  I p r o m i s e......

TA DA!!!

2011 was a rough year for my family and a lot of things fell by the wayside.  One of them was my crafting.  I sure hope 2012 is a much better year for me and everyone.  I did go to a 3 day scrapbooking retreat in November in Glenn Allen, VA.  It was very productive and everyone had a great time.  There's another in the same place the last weekend in February.  This month!  Woohoo!  Of course I still haven't decided exactly what I'm going to be working on but like normal, I'll throw things together at the last minute.  Hopefully, I can be a bit more organized.  Actually, I would like to be more organized as a new year resolution.  I am such an unorganized person.  I have friends and family have OCD but they won't give me any of it.  :(    (selfish I tell ya)  LOL  Okay, enough for now.  I'll check back in soon.  (promise)

This is Rachel and her cousins Ethan and Abby.  Little Abby passed away at 4 months old.  Love you Abby.

Rachel had to dress western for the day at camp.

Rachel's Lola (grandmother).  She doesn't get to see her very often.  My husband's side of the family live in California and we're in Virginia.

Rachel's jewelry box I made.  I used a Making Memories white embellishment box and altered it.

This Rachel when she was 3.  She was "helping" her older cousins at the go-kart track.

Me and my husband Reggie.

My cousin Austin and his wife Amy on their wedding day.

Rachel and her Kindergarten teacher.  She absolutely loves school.  I hope that love lasts.

Me, my baby sister Kelly and my little brother Wayne.  Wayne passed away this past November. He was 43 years old.  Love you brother!

I can't believe that I haven't posted anything since last October.  It makes me kinda sad actually.  I haven't felt like doing much of anything really.  I'm going to try to do better, promise.  :)  Sometime between now and Monday, I will post a few of the layouts that I've managed to finish and hopefully I'll be able to complete the countdown calendar that I've been wanting to do for Rachel.  This one will be to count the days till her 6th birthday (and to use every year until she tires of it). LOL  April 22nd isn't that far away so I had better get crackin'!
