What a mess, but it was cleaned up by 5pm. Cinnamon was sitting among my stuff..but didn't seem to make the picture. The top picture is a congratulation on your home card I made for a relative....IKEA tape measure that I got at one of our furniture hunting trips, and Birthday paper..that always comes in handy.
The bottom pictures are the close up of my scrapbooking layouts...some Myrtle Beach memories. I need to finish them before I can start on my Florida pictures..

…where did this week go.....Oh yeah.... Hurricane, the new house, manicure, and pedicure, and packing for my visit to Myrtle Beach....for a while I thought it may be cancelled. Hopefully I will be able to fly into Wilmington....I guess time will tell, I best be ready. Hurricanes are not a new experience for us. A lot less stressful when there is no property involved....this time I worry about Brendan in Isle of palms....and so glad he wasn't in Puntacana. I saw the pictures from there.
Now my pictures- I am working on our coffee table and on the sofa, just finished my Challenge card, and about to start a new scrapbooking project. Take a look at our storm lantern, my hurricane preparedness purchase. Thank goodness I went on Monday because yesterday Walmart had empty shelves. Brendan went to his Walmart, and it was empty also! Anyway….I am prepared!
Heading to the post office…the 24 hr automated post office….to mail our tags to N Myrtle Beach, don't want a problem at the airport…..now that we have Florida tags & am turning my SC ones in (sad ) But it does make me feel that I belong here now.
Well now that hurricane Irene has passed Myrtle Beach, and all our friends are safe, and my flight has not been cancelled.....I will be flying to Wilmington, NC tomorrow.
Missed CK in Charlotte, but my friend Sarah checked it out for me.... Rhonda and my Wilmington scrapbooking friends are there, can't wait to hear all about it.

Finally got my challenge card posted..... Between the new house, and now hurricane Irene, I have had to share my scrapbooking/card making time!! I went to get gas yesterday.....there were long lines, can people be preparing for the hurricane this soon? Maybe I will give in and go get water and batteries......and a flashlight for the batteries!!! I keep thinking about my hurricane preparedness box that is packed in our POD in South Carolina!! What was I thinking?, packing it away.....oh yeah....no more room in my car!!

I have finally used those house images that you have been seeing for weeks!! JoyFold cards....and many of them...I decided to make my change of address cards....Just in case I don't have time once we move!! Signing the contract tomorrow. Let the building begin....Actually most is done...only 60 days needed to complete!!
Just below is my altered composition book.....I needed something that I could keep tract of all the little details of the construction, and moving!! ~ It is exciting ~
Will someone remind me why I thought I needed a Realtor? We found this development on our own...Gave up looking for a pre-owned home. All the developments are gated, so I couldn't find anything on my own. I guess I thought a Realtor here would be like the awesome one we had in SC....
In the book is a red business card.....My first scrapbooking friend! She works at Oakton Preserve, and understood why I needed to take many pictures!! I had to have the "before" pictures, so that I can scrapbook the whole journey!!

That time again......Sassy Cheryl's Show me... I can't believe it has been 36 weeks since we started doing this....I love to see what everyone is working on and to be able to show my friends what I am working on....now that I am so far away from my scrapping buddies. Join the fun.
I finally finished my snow and the sand layouts from the snow fall the beach had February 13, 2010
Coloring in the living room/scrapbook space....Cinnamon sits with me on the sofa, while I color....
I did my challenge card, and sent it to a friend that is expecting.
AND......I went on a search for a paint chip....the color I wanted was Seafoam Storm... I found it...even though the sales clerk says...sorry we don't carry that anymore!! I wasn't going to give up! I am gathering ideas for our new home. I am going to have to start a new album for our new home...

Easy Challenge, right? Nope...of all of the supplies I moved....not one piece of lace, not even a lacy punch. Mac & I took a trip to Naples Fl for the weekend. The hotel we stayed at had a paper doily........I was so excited to find a piece of lace, even though it was paper....I kept it safe with all the other items I collected for my scrapbook pages...
My challenge card is complete....Sorry- unless I remove the kitty....I can't get his tail to move off my words!
