Ok, I think I just threw-up a litle! 30?! WTH? Where have the last 12 or so years gone? I have been dreading today since last year's birthday. People keep saying,
"30 is the new 20.", "Wait until you're 40.", and lots of other comments like these. Well, you know what? I'm 30, and I hate it!! I woke up miserable, and as the day goes on I feel worse. In fact, I'm trying not to cry right now! Urghhhh...maybe it's just a phase, and I'll get over it? Right now, I don't think so. Growing up sucks ass in so many Laura Jean did make me smile yesterday, though, with my awesome birthday presents.

Taylor made me a card. Traven brought me an ice cold Coke from Summer Leadership. My mother sent Matt and I a gift card for Outback. My baby brother called me from Iraq. I got lots of well wishes! I am very grateful! Really, I am. I'm just too miserable to show it much.

Anywho, as I have mentioned before, I am in the Treasured Hunt '08 over at Treasured Scrapbooking. So, our first challenge was to create a one page LO using felt, scallops, only 1 photo, and journaling that had to start with "Today I". We can't post our creations anywhere but there and our blog until the competition is over or until we get the boot. (whichever comes first) So, here's what I did....

Plain and simple. I took the picture of myself this morning. I hate it, but it's me. Hopefully it will be good enough to get me to the next round. :0)

Bad Moods and Scrap Mojo

Do you ever feel like you aren't loved or appreciated or noticed even though the evidence staring you in the face says the complete opposite?? That is how I have been feeling the past few weeks. I haven't the faintest idea as to why?

And, before I get into the good oldest 2 became a big brother and sister again on the 25th. So, their sperm donor comes to pick them up so they can go see their new baby sister. You know they were there for 2 hours and were not allowed to hold the baby!?!? Why? Because their other sister, who is 5, didn't want them to, and she has final say!! WTH?! Also, they spent about 30 minutes in the hallway because their step-mom had to pee, and she didn't want them in the room when she got in and out of bed and while she was in the bathroom. Maybe I just have no shame left in my game, but I was a little pissed by the whole thing.

Ok, ok...done with the bitch fest...

As far as scrap mojo, I feel like I have ZERO!! However, I've been getting lots of points and wonderful comments at Tally (I'm in the top 5 scrappers so far this contest!)...I've got an altered item that is the top in that category...

my card just left the top 8...

I have been the LO of the Week over at Treasured Scrapbooking for 2 weeks now (yeah, yeah...she may be a little too busy to change it, but I'll take

I made their '08 Hunt, as well. :0)

I have been working on some Fancy Pants LOs and stuff. Yes, I think I am going to enter their Creative Team contest! I know it's a shot in the dark, but I'm still excited....just because I feel I'm getting so much better at scrapping! :0)

What have I been up to?

Hmmmm...not too much these days. Lots of cleaning, lots of being bored, lots of being lazy.
I have been watching the neighbors dogs while they're at Disney for a week. Let me tell you, if I had known that one of them was not yet house trained, I wouldn't have offered to keep them. I literally clean at least 5 puddles of puppy pee a day, and I let them out at least 5 times a day! I honestly think I'm getting an allergy to dog gag everytime I have to clean the stuff up! (She's only 4 months old and is bigger than their adult dog)
My oldest 2 young people came home yesterday morning!! :0) The house has been loud and obnoxious since. As much as I dislike loud and obnoxious, I'm glad to have it back.
My hubsters will be home in about 2 weeks...only 2 weeks earlier than he was originally supposed to be home. The MC really sucks ass sometimes!! As of right now, he is still leaving in January for a year. Like I said, the MC really sucks ass sometimes. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful for everything they provide for us and for what they do....but I need to be angry with someone/something, so they won that spot!
My baby brother is on his last 3 months of his journey to the sandbox. He has handled it much better than I honestly thought he would. He has grown up so much! I am so proud of him! :0)

Ok, ok...enough of the blah-blah-blah...
Here's what I've been creating...

You can see these and all of my other wonderful creations over at TallyScrapper. I love that "place"!! The ladies and gents are wonderful...the talent is amazing...the support is is my home on the net!

I uploaded my first submission to the Prima Sketch contest!!! :0) I hope they like it as much as I do!!

Oh yeah, I can't forget the Jar of Whimsy and inchies!!

So, as some of you know, my hubsters (over there on the right) was supposed to leave around the beginning of January. Well, he was told not too long ago that he would NOT be going....then, tonight he calls and tells me that he was put back on the list and will be home by the end of this month from Cali. :-( I am hoping, that with the indecisivness (did I spell that right?) of the MC, that he'll get taken back off...and I can get back to happy...fat chance, but there is always hope.

In other, happier news, I got some more done with the Tally July kit!! :-)

Inchie ATCs!! Aren't they the cutest things ever...well besides my young people??

Urrghhh...fevers suck!

So, one of my lovely friends/neighbors, decided to stop over for a visit the other day. I invited her and her young people inside. Well, her 2 (ages 2 and almost 1) and my youngest 2 (the older 2 are at the sperm donors) are running around, playing, having a nice know...touching everything, sticking stuff in their mouths...normal young people stuff for that age. Wellllll, she decides to tell me, like after 15 minutes or so, that her young people have been running fevers for the last 2 days or so...not little ones, 104. What was I supposed to do then? Heck, we were already exposed. At any rate, I ended up having a very last minute 4th of Jult get-together...not planned at all. She brought the young people...still with fevers!! Ok, I like her, but WTH? The point of this long youngest 2 have had fevers since the 5th! We have been cooped up in the house since Saturday, and it has had it's rough spots! lol

At any rate, with all of this time on my hands, I have managed to create a lot of stuff for Tally (you know, I'm a part of the cool crowd over there the DT for July-Sept...WHOOP-WHOOP to me!!) with the awesomely Leah-designed kit!! I've also created some things for the Glitz challenge, and some other stuff. I am actually just running out of scrap-mojo! :-) Well, thanks for reading!!

I guess this means I am trying out the blogging world! Not sure how it will go, but at least I can say I tried. :0)

Don't ask where I came up with the name. I'm not exactly sure. I always tell my hubsters that if we get a boat, we are naming it Just a funny little made up word straight from the eclectic mind of me!
