I Miss Scrapping

I miss it so much it hurts. I was telling myself that I haven't had this block last for this long. I scrapped a 9x9 last Monday. If you call that scrapping, a very big picture in a 9x9 Webster Pages paper, added two flowers from the same paper that I popped up, one butterfly that I punched from my favorite butterfly puncher hehehe and the title from my Thickers stash.

I needed to finish the layout for the Ikea shadow box we bought two weeks ago or else I'll hear my husband nagging me that I keep on buying things and I don't use them. "Dahling, that's why there's a word --- hoarding!"

I am meeting a celebrity tomorrow! She was so gracious to judge Challenge #29 for Scrappers At SG, to top it off, she even threw a RAK. What a dear!

I Feel Blessed

And, once again, another week passed me by and I have no projects to share. I am itching to cut and paste but been really busy --- at work, at home and at church --- I am assisting in teaching level 3 kids in our parish, we're preparing them for their first Holy Communion.

I miss making Pamela's sketches. Received news the Scrapbook Challenges will be having a Use Your Stash online crop! I hope I can join. Next week is pretty busy. Saturday is for Catechism class, then there's a shower party for Pre's High School friend, and Pre's close friend is coming over from the Philippines.

I am not complaining. I've got rewards this week. Last Wednesday, decided to make Strawberries N Cream. When Bebi A saw it, she said "You're the *besest* mom in the world!" Food is all that little girl can think about!

Then this afternoon, while Dawter T and I were preparing for Catechism. She asked me "Why do you want to be a Catholic teacher?" I think she doesn't know how to say Catechism.

I told her my reason. "We've been blessed with so many things and I felt that this is one way for me to give something back to the Lord." With that, she gave me a tight hug. Awwww... I was so pleased.

I am not going to dwell on this.

Halloween photos. Christmas photos. Gone.

I am not going to dwell on this.

2010 Word


I want to have it back. At home. At work. At play. It took a vacation and never came back.

Anyway, I told myself that I won't be complacent this year. That I'll get that energy somehow. To go out. To have fun. To be out there.

There's more to life than sitting, waiting for something to happen. It's time to make it happen.

2010 Word. Zeal.
