scrapping this week…

So, lucky me made some scrapping time this week.  I’m beginning to get frustrated with myself because it’s taking me so long to make LO’s.  I think I should be able to get 2 done in an evening.  Nope.  From 8 pm until almost 11, I’m working on one thing.  Maybe it’s the television…  Maybe it’s stopping to take a fudgecicle break…  Maybe it’s talking to my husband rather than working.  I don’t … [Read more...]
