Welcome. This blog is my little home on the web. It's mostly about my favorite hobby, digital scrapbooking. You might also find some recipes, home decor projects, or parenting woes. But mostly digital scrapbooking.

No More Alarm Clocks

Friday was the last day of Miller's summer camp.  For three weeks, four days a week, I had 2 1/2 hours all to myself.  I REALLY liked it.  He REALLY liked camp, and I bet he'll miss it.  However, I did not like having to set an alarm to be at camp on time.  I haven't had to use an alarm clock regularly for years, maybe even a decade.  I think the world gets up way too early.  This camp was so great because it was basically all free play time.  They could play inside with toys or blocks, they could play outside in the amazing park, they could participate in the art projects - all up to them.  It was a great first experience for him.  Miller will be starting a real preschool in mid-September, and I will get a few hours to myself again. And even better, it's AFTERNOON preschool.  No alarm clocks.

I've been busy making layouts.  Taking advantage of my guest spot and my 2 1/2 hours :)  This first one is a 2-pager for Miller's 4th birthday.  This was a special party for me because we stayed in our own town instead of traveling to where all the family is.  It really meant a lot to us that they all came here for the party.

I finally got some curtains for Miller's "apartment," so the room felt finished enough to scrap about it.  Before this, he did not have his own room; his stuff was just all over.  Now he has is own space.

This page was about my entry to the California State Fair and meeting my online scrapping buddy Stef who also entered and won. I still have more fair scrapping that I want to do, but this was the most important part.

Just a cute picture of Miller.  Gosh, I wish he'd cut his hair.

These were just some pics from a few months ago that I'd set aside to scrap.  Nothing particularly noteworthy about them, but I thought the little quotation word-art was funny and matched the photos really well.

Finally, this is the tentative cover for my 2011 printed scrapbook. I love the simplicity of the design. I think it's similar to last year's cover, so I like the consistency of that.  I also like the words I wrote ... sometimes I surprise myself.

That's all for now! Thanks for looking!
