Getting back in the swing of things...

One of the great things about buying a new house is all the SPACE you get! We were living in a tiny one bedroom apartment and have probably tripled the amount of space when we bought this place. One of the perks is finally having a space of my own for my scrapbooking. No more taking over the dining room and living room with all my supplies! Well...not so much....I do have a new space and it is all set up and clean and organized. However, currently my dining room is covered in my supplies and my living room...well the coffee table looks like this: Now I admit this is not AS BAD as it used to be in the apartment but still... maybe a bit unnecessary... In my defense I was cutting kits for my class tonight!

I have been trying to scrapbook more now that I'm all organized. And really I know I need to start using some of the stuff I have before all the new stuff being released at CHA right now hits our store shelves and I have to buy all that too!

Here is a layout I've been working on. I'm a little stuck at the moment: I know it needs something but I'm just not sure what. I have been thinking about printing out some journaling on white paper strips and laid on the page sort of like this: Any thoughts?

806... the number of photos I took in the two months I wasn't blogging. I felt like I was on a roll with the blogging thing up until December then life got crazy, so here is the run down of what I've been doing when I wasn't here blogging:

Moving into our new house: Actually Dustin did most of the moving...
Did I mention we moved into the house a mere HOURS before a huge snow storm

Went to North Carolina for Christmas with the familyPlanned and threw my sister a baby shower two days after ChristmasTaught some classesWent back to North Carolina to meet my nephew JarmonTurned 27. I don't actually have a picture of this but it happened. I am now officially in my late 20s, yet I still like look I'm 13.

Ok so maybe all that doesn't sound like a lot but it felt like a lot was going on. But here I am back and hopefully I'll be posting a lot more this year. I am still working on decorating this house so expect some of that and I plan on posting more scrapbook layouts and projects, hopefully with tutorials.
