I have been MIA for a while.  As most of you know we are remodeling a house. Almost gutting it in places.  SO, we are making alot of progress and I have been busy, busy painting!!! and painting and painting!  BUT, I am excited that the next room ready to paint is the office!  MY place!  

I have already been working on painting old cabinets we are repurposing for the office.  They are almost done, and now the room itself is almost ready to paint! I still mull around how everything will be organized but, I can't wait to get it all into motion. 

We have seen so much accomplished this week, flooring in mudroom, kitchen, livingroom, most of the dinning room and the small bath almost done as well as dd's room!  Fun,fun and TONS of work by my dh and ds.  So, if you are missing me, that's where I am, prepping for lots of posts from the new place in a little while!

I will post a sneak peek soon so you too, can see how far we have come!

Thanks for your patience!

Zoe Collection

Our new Zoe Collection uses canary, glacier, slate, sorbet, sweet leaf, whisper and white daisy colors. I thought they were perfect for my daughter's first day of college! This is the alternate layout to the Workshop on the Go for this set. I love the stamp set it comes with. There are lots of possibilities for it. This was a fun day for her and I felt the collection had alot of fun colors.
You can get yours at! Just click shop, you can also join one of my gatherings on the front page. Get your own new Annual Inspirations catalogs there too or view it online!

THIS is why I do what I do!

Last week we had a family vacation to the best vacation spot in the world!  I have gone here since I was born and it is like a second home to me.  My extended family LOVES this special place and it holds many, many sweet memories.  I am very blessed to be able to share that with my own family.  We spent a wonderful week together, just doing the traditional things.

Although a few cell phones, laptops and such are now a part of our time, it didn't take over (too much).  We were still able to visit the Whippy Dip, take a dune ride, visit "our" lighthouse, play in the sand and yes, some of us swam.  (It was a bit chilly for some of us!)  But the best part was, we were together.  Making memories that I hope will last THEM for a lifetime.  I know mine will!

Here is a little bit of our week.  And THIS, my family, is why I LOVE to scrapbook and they love to look at them!  To Remember.....
