Oh, I had a lovely, lovely drive to work this morning. The roads were like a freshly zambonied ice rink. Just lovely. I swear I could attempt a triple lutz on the road leading to our driveway. I made it to work safely and I hope that everyone in Anchorage SLOWS DOWN especially when coming up to a light or stop sign. I'm tired of seeing those people sliding right through a red light because they are in such a rush to get somewhere.

More from the craft room....still clearing off shelves. I'm really going through EVERYTHING and tossing things that are just cluttering my space and my mind. One thing I've always kept out are my journals. I sat on the floor and looked through all of them. Here's some bits from various journals. I'll share more this week.

Reagan's personality is changing so much. She's at this goofy stage right now. She likes to flash this silly, cheezy grin and it cracks everyone up. I think she knows it too because when you start laughing at her, it gets her going even more. Man, I cannot express how much love I have for this child.

Holly and I did a little combat shopping on Saturday. I picked up some things for my coworkers Christmas presents and a little something for myself. Isn't he cute? It's a Le Creuset baking dish but I'm going to use it more for show. It's in my craft room right now. I'm using it to hold the little pieces from the kit I'm currently working on.

And I got tagged by this lovely.

1.If you could have $100 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?
Hhmmm.....this one's hard. I think I'm going to go with paper.

2. If you had to choose between using only stamps or rub-ons which would you choose?
Stamps, hands down.

3. If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts, but could only do one for a year which would you do?
Layouts. I've made plenty of cards in the past and they're just not as valuable to me as a layout.

4. Would you rather own a scrapbooking store or have your own scrapping room at home (can't have both, lol)
My own space. Yeah, it would be nice to have a store but really, when would you have time to scrap?

5. And then last but not least, what is your current cardmaking or scrapping style?
I'd like to think that I don't fall under any one style but my own. I started out making collages so I like to incorporate that into my pages. I like to work with shapes too. You'll notice lot's of squares and cirlces in my stuff.

Ok, now I, you and you.
Happy Monday!
