It came

My silhouette cameo arrived today, yay!

{new blog}

Well it certainly took me HOURS to do, but I've updated my blog after many, many, many moons. I hope that you all love it! It was a free template that I found online; there are a couple other free ones out there that were mega cute :)

{creative weekend}

Although I'm having a busy and restless kind of week; I did have a wonderfully creative Saturday. I made just a few layouts, so here they are for your enjoyment!!

This has been such a fabulous weekend. I didn't work on any of my homework (I'm ashamed), but I did get a bit scrappy at my monthly Slop Crop (feel free to join me anytime, really) on Saturday. Friday night I helped my mom purge a lot of OLD, OLD, OLD scrap stuff and reorganize some things and ate a delicious dinner cooked mostly by her (I helped a little). Saturday was an all day affair (that's usually how Slop Crops go). Today (Sunday), we slept in late (till 9), then I studied for a little bit, took a cat nap (I NEVER get to do this), showered, took visited the Big Orange Pumpkin Patch for a few hours, then came home slipped into PJs, made a delicious dinner (baked chicken, garlic butter rice, and steamed veggies), and got Harper into bed ON time after watching The Hutchback of Notre Dame and reading 4 books before finally putting her into bed.

It has been a swell weekend. Gavin is now taking a test online. I aced my online quiz, and I going to complete my reading assignments until Gavin is done with this exam, then we will watch either Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, Homeland, Hung or the Walking Dead. We NEVER get to watch television, thank goodness for DVR!

So finally after weeks of anticipation.... I've uploaded images of my scrap room just for you! Enjoy, relish, and roll in it; I love my crafty space. It is still a work in progress. I would absolutely love to replace the Mickey Mouse TV with a flat screen, but HECK it was free, and it works amazingly! I would also love to replace the TV stand that it sits on with another black wire rack like the one in the photos. Those are usually inexpensive (go on sale often at Target), and they are just plain handy dandy. I love the industrial look. I would LOVE, love, love to pain my hutch but not sure what color, and it would be fabulous to brighten up the scrap room with better lighting and a different wall color. This is the color of all the walls in my house except the bedrooms, bathrooms, and office. EVERY room and ceiling in the house though :) - AND I would love to hand some stuff on the walls. I plan to make a 'brag rack' with clips from IKEA, but I just don't have the time or money to invest in little wants like that. The holidays are coming up so I have to start thinking about that!

{weekend wrap up}

Let me sum up this weekend for you in a complex sentence. Gavin and I watched Transformers Dark Side of the Moon; then we studied the rest of the weekend, but I did take a time out from studying to get my hair cut and to scrapbook a little, and I even took photos of my *new* scrapbook room.

Haha, that's the longest sentence really.... :)

Well I mentioned that I took pictures of my *new* scrap room, and I did. It was the formal dining room, but then I told Gavin that it was pointless and a waste of GREAT space and light, and that it MUST be my scraproom, so it is yay!

It's been my scapbook room officially since August, but who cares? I'm just glad to have such a large space. I haven't uploaded the pictures online, but I will this evening after I'm done taking my test before I pick up Harper girl from her Lita's house.

Despite all the hours spent studying for my 3 (yes, 3) upcoming exams; we still managed to have some fun fitting in a couple of flicks with Harper a two hour trip to Stonebriar mall in Frisco, and last nights episode of Boardwalk Empire. I love that show *squeel*.

We also produced a short film (it's 24 seconds long) of the Birthday Song to my very good friend Robin!!

And I'll share that with you now!
Enjoy the rest of today and enjoy this short clip of Harper and her mommy ;)

With Love,
Gabi Watson
