I'm back, well sort of

It's been a long time since my last post and my fans Amy, Veronica & Jess-all 3 of you-have been patiently waiting for updates. :) I do love that you guys check in here regularly to see what's up with Mark and I. Thank You. Work has been keeping me so busy and I am so tired but I will try hard to keep posting as frequently as I can. Love ya guys!

Last time I posted we were getting ready for the Washington National Guard Militia Ball. Here is a pic. Since then Mark has been promoted to Major, we are very excited about that. I am very proud of my soldier!

A few days before Halloween I took this picture from my kitchen window. Very pretty itsy bitsy spiders but they need to move away from my walls!!
For Halloween I carved pumpkins with my neighbors Amy, Sam & Emma. Here is a spooky picture of my pumpkins from our porch. The 3rd one was carved by Amy. It looks craaazy!
On November 2nd I attended the Creaking Keepsakes Scrapbooking Convention in Bellevue and met Ali Edwards. I absolutely love her. Her two lectures were the best of the 6 classes I took. Her approach to scrapbooking is so inspiring, fun and liberating. She has changed the way I scrapbook and scrapbooking has simply becomed fun rather than stressful. Ali signed my copy of her new book and here are the pics.


I also took 3 classes with Shimelle Laine. I was looking forward to her classes but I was kind of disappointed, perhaps I was too tired by then. She did bake cupcakes for us and it was by far the best cupcake I have ever had, it was delicious! She also got me working with felt and when I got home I kept working with it and made some pieces I love. They are hanging in my scrapbooking room.

The best cupcake ever

Here are some before and after pics of my scrapbooking room. I painted the walls and got new furniture and I am loving it. Still have a lot to do, but it's a start.

this is it for now. I'll be back with more updates!
