My favorite pop culture quote is this lady saying “Ain’t nobody got time for that”. It is so true. Some days as I add more things into my life I wonder where will I find the time…some days I do, some days I don’t. Blogging is one of those things. I think about it every week but to take the time to sit down and write is another story. I have to really concentrate when I write and in my house it is never quite. Where have I been you ask? Well don’t get me wrong I have been busy thinking of ideas and new layouts to post and even started a video but that’s about as far as it got. I have discovered some great new CTMH products that I wanted to share as well as some new techniques. I promise I will post those soon. I also have some very cute layouts to show you that me and my scrapbook pals did for a local charity auction to benefit the Spay and Neuter Foundation in our area. I got wind they were having a silent auction as part of their fundraiser and I asked if they thought a pet-themed scrapbook would be something they’d be interested in. The auction organizer thought that was a great idea. Well then it dawned on me….”Ain’t nobody got time for that!” What had I gotten myself into?! I had already offered up one of those cute mesh and ribbon wreaths but I was going to ask a friend to actually make that since I can make them just not for a paying customer. When was I going to find time to do TWO scrapbooks….with a 7 year old child, soccer, hockey, school, my work, husband, the holidays approaching, caring for my critters as well as volunteering to foster a pet, and running my mom to doctor almost every other week?
Thankfully I have some great ladies who I scrapbook with twice a year. We have a Facebook Page and I just went on there and said “Hey do ya’ll want to help?” The response was more than I could have dreamed. Most of them are dog lovers so doing something to help was totally up their alley. I was the only true cat person so I ended up completing the cat album. We ended up with a dog album, a cat album and an album with both cat and dog pages. Once I got started I could whip out a page in nothing flat! It was even fun and got me back into the mood to scrap.
I will share just this one I did for the cat album but there were so many others to share later.
The auction is this week so I hope we can raise some money for the cause! Now I can get back to doing regular scrapbooking, work on a Christmas Wreath I want to make, some jewelry I want to make and oh yeah the rest of my life……Who’s got time for that!
