Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #7



I've been doing a lot of crafting already this weekend. I have another challenge entry and a couple of scrapbook pages. I'm only ONE page away from finishing Madison's first year scrapbook! I am so happy, it's been a huge project and I can finally put it behind me. Almost.

Here is my challenge entry for this week:



And my scrapbook pages:

Finally Friday

This past week has been so crazy at work, I was ready for the weekend on Monday. Today was especially bad, and I left at 3:00 to get a head start on my weekend. I had a great surprise when I got home, more free stuff and the new stamps I ordered from Papertrey Ink. I made a few pages today:




I also made reservations this week to go to Florida. I'm really excited. I was in Miami for a few hours on the way to our honeymoon, and it was a little scary. This time my mom and I are going to Orlando. On a whim I called her and asked her if she wanted to take a trip and she said sure. We will be going to Disney World for a few days and I will be going to the craft and hobby show.

And finally, I actually have some knitting to show you. I've been working on this scarf since February/March and I'm almost half done. I think I'll finish this just in time for the cold weather.

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge - Week 6

I haven't done much this week except sleep. At least I don't feel sick like I did while I was pregnant with Madison. I managed one scrapbook page this weekend and I did it as part of a challenge:

Mother's Day Weekend

We had a very eventful weekend. On Friday we found out we were having another baby(Yay!) due in January. On Saturday night Madison woke up screaming and vomiting so bad that we had to call 911. It was so scarry. She would not stop throwing up and then she kept choking on it. This lasted almost 10 minutes. Of course as soon as the paramedics arrived she was quiet and asked them if she could watch Barney. They said she might have had a feberal seizure, which I've never heard of, but it happens when the body tempurature rises too high too fast. Luckily she is just fine.

Mother's day was really nice. I got to spend some time scrapbooking and we went to visit my mom.






I'm not crazy about this one. It just seems to be missing something, but I don't know what to do.

Free Stuff March and April

I have a talent for getting free stuff. Finding, winning, earning (I know, technically not free, but if I can earn it while I'm in my jammies, free enough), whatever, I can find it.

You know when you listen to someone winning on the radio and they say, "Oh my gosh. I've never won anything before!" Well, that's not me. In fact, there was a point when I won so much, the DJ's started to recognize my voice. The best stuff I've won? $635.00, a night on the town including limo, drinks, dancing, and food, concert tickets, and of course, lots of CD's.

In March and April, I got a lot of free stuf.

1. From www.freegrabber.com (If you decide to do this, I would suggest opening a separate email account that you don't have to check because you'll get a lot of spam):

Coffee
Ziploc baggie
Body wash
Lots of shampoo/conditioner

2. Things I've won:

1 dozen cookies from The Cookie Connection
Mini Scrapbook

3. Things I've gotten from surveys/testing:

3 full bottles of sunscreen
Box of Kleenex
Can of Pringles
2 boxes of Hostess cupcakes
Can of shaving cream
2 rolls of paper towels
Sweet and Sour Marinade
Package of Pampers Cruisers
Cash

This one is my favorite because I'm always finding packages in the mail, and I get to keep everything I test. Besides testing and keeping the products, I actually get paid for it!

If you want me to send you some links to the survey websites feel free to leave a comment with your email and I'll send them to you (that way I get referral points). Again, I would sign up for a separate email account because if you are consistent with this, you'll get a lot of surveys. I've done this for several years now, and I haven't gotten any spam from this, so you could use your regular email if you wanted to.

Happy Weekend.

A Weekend With Oma

My mom came up and stayed with me for the weekend. We had big plans, but they all got rained out. I can't believe a little over a week ago it was 95 degrees and this weekend it stormed. On Saturday we went to a bridal shower and then went shopping. Today we were going to take Madison to Fairytale Town, but it was still raining. So we did what we do best, we went shopping. I got myself a new purse, a pizza crisper, new clothes for Madison and a new step stool. She carried that step stool around the house all day. It has been so long since I've done any shopping, it felt like I was out of control!

Here are the scrapbook pages I finished this weekend.
