If you weren't mentioned it doesn't mean anything except that I am in a hurry and trying to type really fast. I probabyl learned so much from you I can't articulate it in one sentence (and someof you above I learned alot from but just talked about one thing). You know, that whole getting old thing, my memory is going! LOL
I totally feel a layout coming on, however, I am supposed to prepping for my class that is in 5 hours --yikes! So until tomorrow...happy crafting!

And here is another class I am working on (above)...
Rearranging my scrap room yet again...I think I organize more than I scrap. There should be a pill for that.
Got another thing for stamps, moved some stuff OFF this table (above) and my bulletin board fell off so that is why that is on there. Do we ever stop organizing? LOL This place is a flippin' mess!
Xaver put up a new ribbon rod for me and I moved all my loose ribbon to that bigger, more sturdy rod.
Another yummy ribbon pic. One can never have enough ribbon!! And it is fat free too!
Here is where the ribbon used to be (on the second rod down). I added more spools to that rod since I just went on a major ribbon run last week. Xaver said he will put my bulletin boards back up here, under the ribbon, tomorrow. Yippee!
I realized the loose ribbon hanging would be tickling my arm when I was scrapping so I moved my tables around. Not sure I like it just yet--there is alot of space in the middle of the room and my back is to the door but I can get to my Silhouette and other tables (not pictured but on the left) so much easier...we shall see. It is growing on me.
I love these new fabric bins I got from Target earlier this month. So cute! The fact that they are filled with stuff that needs to be put away and organized - not so attractive. I'll deal with that in all my "spare time", right?
A few weeks ago I put all my Prima flowers in these jars, with a ribbon tied on the top as a sort of "key". I just ran across some pics of Katie and my nephew sorting the flowers for me by color after Thanksgiving dinner. Matthew broke the "pink" jar so those flowers are floating around in a bin until I get some new jars. Boys...
I am nearing some serious landmarks here at my little blog:
- 500th post happened last week
- I am almost at 40,000 page hits!!
- AND my Blogoversary is coming up soon
For some reason I came home with a lot of Fairy Fly Bys leftover from the Royal Slumber Crop. We made 150 but either I can't count or we missed some people. Who knows!?!? All we need to care about is that it is good news for you!! I am giving away those Fairy Fly Bys to anyone who posts a comment here, first come first served. I have like 20 of them so need to worry about getting one as I am sure I will have enough.
Also, I still have that Quickutz Chandelier Alphabet Die up for grabs!! I did not collect any donations on Maria's behalf :( but Pat from the same group earned the title (and crown) for Queen of Philanthropy after just signing up for the event three weeks before. What an awesome accomplishment--this group of ladies is just amazing, inspiring, talented...I am so lucky to call them my friends!
How can you get that alphabet?
Donate $25 to Scrapbook Royalty. We always need donations to help our organization run since we are all strictly volunteers. Every little bit helps!
The first person to donate will receive the Chandelier Alphabet (or a kit from my stash if you don't have Quickutz).
The second person to donate will receive a 4x4 die (or an XL banner starter kit if you don't have Quickutz).
The third person to donate will receive one of my new XL Banner Starter Kits in the color of their choice.
The fourth person to donate will receive one of my new Banner Starter Kits in the color of their choice.
The fifth person to donate will receive a ribbon and embellie pack from me.
If I get more than six donations I will post more prizes!!!
HOW CAN YOU DONATE?
Either use the buttons I posted in the last week (see posts on Wed and Fri) OR you can send the money to Scrapbook Royalty directly through Paypal at email@example.com. If you send it direct, please forward the email saying you sent a payment to me so I can get your address to send the prize. Thanks for playing and happy creating!!
