Hello bloggy friends!
If you're new to my little corner of the blogging world - WELCOME!
Can you believe it's already May?
I love May.
I love the Spring weather.
The flip flop potential.
The long walks.
And ice cream.
Lots of ice cream.
But I digress... here's my CURRENTLY:
Listening: Ginny Owens is streaming from Pandora right now.Loving: My new linky party, "Tricks of the Trade" launched today.
Thinking: This Saturday I am going to spend twelve hours doing nothing but scrapbooking! (well and consuming my body weight in junk food!) I am joining some ladies from Creative Memories and we're going to scrap our hearts out! I can't wait :) I'm going to be working on a scrapbook of our many New York City adventures, as well as creating some cards.
Here are some pictures from a recent trip into NYC - we went to the Irish Potato Famine Memorial. These stones were originally from a cottage in Ireland - they tore it down, shipped them over, and built the monument using the stones:
Here's my hubby with a rock from Cork - the county where his family came from:
Here's a sample of the cards I've recently made:
Wanting: a manicure and a bubble bath. Don't we all?
Needing: my food pantry is
slightly very disorganized. I plan to tackle it this weekend...unless the weather is too nice and it beckons me outside :)
Summer bucket list: This summer I am going to be taking all of my books home (I'm going to need to rent a U-Haul!) and will be cataloging them on my computer using my handy-dandy Intelli-scanner:
It's an AMAZING tool that scans bar codes and generates catalogs of books, magazines, movies. Connect it to your computer and with one simple scan, it records the title, author, publisher, copyright date, number of pages, genre, and a short summary. It also registers how many copies you have in your collection. You can even set it up so that students check books in and out using the scanner.
AND if you're a teacher, they give you $20 off!
Check it out: IntelliScanner
Well I'm off to check out the blogs that have linked up with "Tricks of the Trade"
