I'm Baaaaaaaaackkkkkkkkkk!!!

After a long, tumultuous (big word I know..I just hope I spelled it right) time without a computer...I am officially back.

I am so behind with everything, I don't feel that I will ever be caught up. But I am going to do my best. I can't even figure out what I should be typing about...since so much time has passed. So I will just start with the right now.

I threw myself into teaching. I figured why not. I wanted to get over my fears and combine the two things I love the most. (teaching + scrapping) I have tons of ideas swirling around in my head, so I wanted to share them...and teach them, and meet people, and travel. So on April 28th, I teach my first class in Shreveport, Louisiana. Its about an hour and a half from my house. The class will be on "Playing w/Playing Cards"...I have always used playing cards on my pages...so I figured why not just slap some paint on them and make a little album? The cool thing is, is that you can make like two or three mini albums AND a few layouts with just one deck. I'm not sure if its been done before...I know I personally haven't seen it, so I will just go with it. Tonight I am gonna make a "Things I love" one using the heart suit. I have so many ideas...I just hope they come out right.

My husband owes me a scrap night tonight. He told me, dared me, whatever you want to call it...if I ate a bite of his nasty, disgusting, slimy, fried eggs that he would do whatever I wanted. So I took a bite....it was like FEAR FACTOR for me. So now he has to scrap with me. I just don't like to scrap alone ok???

Napoleon Dynamite is on HBO right now...its playing in the background, and it never stops being funny.

I'm back. I am. and i missed you all so damn much.
