What I've been doing.....

Okay so I've been a busy beaver, been doing a lot of things. One of those things is not cleaning house, and it shows, I do hope no one shows up at my door in the next couple of days cause I seriously don't wanna be embarrassed, granted lots of cool things are happening. And with school approaching and more time on my hands, the FUN will begin around here.

One of my projects has been these frames. Now imagine them brass/gold color.... I love spray paint!

Here they are after I spray painted them a base color.

Here you can see them after I antiqued them. First time at glazing... FUN FUN FUN. Oh the possibilities, made me feel better about what I wanna do to my kitchen cabinets. Guess if I mess them up to badly the husband will wanna redo the kitchen before any of his projects.

Here is the red frame with the photo below in it. I sent this 16x20 print off to Walgreens and it looks so much better than that drab *but cool* photo of the house in 1970. I need to find some foam board to put behind the photo so that it will fit better in the frame and get a proper frame hook for the back. I do not want this to fall. LOVE IT. (will look awesome when i get my walls painted).

Perfect Oklahoma Sunset.
As I was walking past my kitchen window yesterday I noticed the bright oranges in the sky, I hurried and put the boys to bed and grabbed the camera. There is a pasture that starts about a half an acre or so from our yard. so I walked over to the barbed wire fence and got a few beautiful shots. This is my favorite, and now has a place in my living room so I can see it daily.

Scrapbooking has been consuming my life. Here are some layouts I've done recently.

Braden - 2 schools last year.

Braden at the Oklahoma Aquarium - Jenks Oklahoma - Kindergarten Field Trip

Bradens 6th Birthday

Jace's first Campout

Jace loves the Soccer Ball

Tulsa Zoo - I did this one as a scrap challenge. Task was to create a Red/White/Blue layout.

I've been so bad I havent even shown this photo of my boys from Christmas time.

Well I have also been doing some tutorials for digital scrapbooking over at B2N2 Scraps. I will put a link over on the side so you all can enjoy her creations.

Boys start school August 16th. We enroll them on August 13th! So its next week! Tomorrow we are headed to Tulsa to do some back to school clothes shopping - still gotta get shoes, backpack, lunch box and Clorox wipes. Wednesday we are gonna go check out this water park here in town, I haven't taken the boys all summer and it is a must they get to go there. So scratch that one off the list. We are hoping to go down to the lake next week, Brants calendar is all jacked up and isn't getting weekends off for a while :( bummer. So we gotta get a day in at the lake ASAP. Not that I don't think the lake will still be warm lol come September. Mercy Oklahoma has been HOT.

We are still alive....

I think its safe to say we are alive, some days I'm a walking zombie! Life has not settled down for us since we moved, yet sitting here I cant tell you what all we've done that keeps us away from blogging but I'm gonna assume its just the typical three kids, two dogs, one husband and a house that constantly needs cleaned or tidy'd up.

The boys start school in two weeks! I'm looking forward to it, they are looking forward to it. It will be Jace and I alone each day from 8 am till 4 pm, mercy I wont have any excuses not to blog more regularly.

I will be doing a lot more blogging mostly cause I am helping a digital scrap book designer manage her creative team. So I have alot of duties that will have me infront of the computer! So again NO EXCUSES.

I'll take some time this week to update all the fun things we got to do this summer. I am in the market for a new camera, ours is just too slow and I dont like how it handles alot of inside photos. So, sadly alot of photos just werent taken this year, oh and not mention it eats batteries like candy!

:) Be sure to check out my scrapbook page, there are a few new ones I've done.
