I haven't scrapbooked in so long and it's really been bothering me that somehow I've lost the time to be creative... Today I had the entire day off and felt absolutely no motivation to get crafty. But a voice in the back of my head kept nagging at me: "Look at all the time you're wasting. You should make use of this free time. Yada, yada, yada." So, as I was printing out some photos for Mom, I found some pics from last year that didn't warrant a whole page on their own, but still brought back a specific memory. I threw those pics into a 2009 recap-type layout. I'm not thrilled with how it turned out, but I did realize as I looked through last year's pics, there weren't really that many. I need to renew my efforts on Project 365 and actually find a way to get myself into more photos this year! Stay tuned...

Drove down to the Quad Cities today to spend some time with my nephew, Trey, who is home on leave from Afghanistan. We spent the afternoon hanging out, playing Wii, eating, talking, laughing and playing board games with the rest of the family. I love this kid and am so very proud of him!

I was productive all morning! Got some MAJOR Spring cleaning done. My 'supervisor' was ever-vigilant on the couch, eyeballing my every move:

She finally said we could be done. Now what?

Hey readers, remember me? You know, when I started this blog in 2007 I had the best intentions of writing every day, diligently documenting my life. Ha! What is it they say about the 'best laid plans'? In any case I find myself with a little extra time tonight and I thought I'd at least check in. Most of you who follow me on Twitter or Facebook at least know that I haven't dropped off the face of the earth....
My last post was February 14th and I believe I was making cards, or at least saying "Happy Valentines Day". In the past three weeks, it's been work, work, work, BIRTHDAY, work, work. I spent a lot of time with my friend Jason, which meant that nothing productive got done. Gonna try and fix that this weekend...
More later,
