My baby is going to preschool

i have been in denial all summer long. even put off filling out the paperwork til this am since it was due tonight at meet the teacher. ughh i am not ready for him to grow up. i know he will enjoy it but still he is my baby. my last one.. next step college ok kindergarten first but then.... and the Meagan dog gone her is is 7th grade already! I am thinking we should lock her away til she is older! then of course sarah is right behind her. wahhhhhh. i dont want them to grow up yet I want them to grow up lol. just feeling a little down about time flying today! maybe its the fact that summer is almost over. or school starting or that it is almost september 2007! wasnt it just 1999?????? or 1991??? maybe it just one of those days.

but i am hoping for some quality scrap time this weekend. if we dont end up helping clean up my parents house after the flooding. unbelievable how many people are affected by this!!!!!!!!!! the whole county! making work very busy! so what is up where u are???

did u know that CSS had a big sale that ended yesterday. of course I ordered again. :D needed just a few more supplies since mine were nice and organized now :D . Also almost september 1 which means a new CSS contest, and a new Dt reveal! wait to you see what we have for you!!!!!!!!!

Wahoo Basic Grey TOOT

I still get so rocking excited about making this gallery. I started jumping up and down and screaming last night when i got the email. most of my close friends know the while I love Basic Grey to look at. It seldom work in translation for me ( in my opinion) I would go so far as to call it my nemisis paper. I just sit and stare at it. have often thought of taking an exacto knife to it. Yet I still buy it. so when I create something I like I am super duper thrilled. when I make something that others like too, Crikey, well that it just rockin!

so here is the star layout. I really am beginning to wonder of they just like Sarah photos. of the 4 total layouts in their gallery ever -2 were just sarah, 1 was sarah and meagan, and 1 was just alex. odd. and odder that i keep track of that.

on another note, my dear friend Carman is in the hospital for the next day or so, and if all goes as I planned she should be getting inudated with cards and well wishes in the next few days.

Stamps for a cause

OK i bought these stamps cause I fell in love with them. The added bonnus is that 7.00 of the purchase went to Make a Wish foundation.. here are 2 cards I made with them....

A Clean Desk is a sign of a Sick Mind

ok i have never been the type of person that has a clean organized desk! never!!!!!!!!!!!!! still not me. I had the sign above my desk in college....A CLEAN DESK IS THE SIGN OF A SICK MIND.... But I can always find what i need when i need it. and others come to me to help them find things on their desk.. so my scrap area is not neat either. but tis kinda organized... But i buy faster than I use!!!!!!!! so with the rains Jim decided to clean out the basement... sorting for a yard sale. *shudder* all that's left is my is a work in progress and right now i couldn't scrap if i wanted too WAHHHHHH!!!!!! but hopefully by the end of today It will be cleaned and organized more. I keep trying to organize a RAK box by some little hands keep stealing it and adding it to their supplies.. but it was hard cause as I put the supplies in their rightful place i wanted to play with them, buttons, flowers,stamps.... i think i know what will be on some of my next layouts..

So how is your desk????

any organizing tips???? please share??
