There is just so much going on right now. It is hard to write it all down. I went back to college last quarter for computer classes for an IT degree and life has changed so drastically. School, work, home and family.

Then I got it in my head to improve me and embarked on way too much lol. I rented a garden plot from community gardening and OMG! the weeds, the weeds! lol. I started to improve my keyboarding skills to improve my typing speeds, I have been trying to brush up on my math facts and math skills because I need to take college allgebra in October. I also started dieting and joined a gym. OMG! the prices of swimsuits these days!!!

My dear teenage son is now the proud holder of a driver's learner's permit and we try to find time to teach him to drive. Like I need gray hairs yet. lol. Aww he's a great kid really he is, but driving is so very stressful!

I have also become an exclusive designer now at Scrappity-doo-dah.com
woohoo!

I have a few new goodies in the store too.

Michael, Michael - a kit named after my son and his father.

And introducing more scrap time for you. lol! I have an Eight Days a Week series. Because we all need more time to scrap mrhahahaha!

Eight Days A Week- Calm
Monday Blues



And finally, a freebie for you! The Digi Scrap Obsession forum is finally back online and Kim B has posted colors for the wonderful Color challenge again!!! I am doing cartwheels!!! you should check out her posting bonus gift. It is stunning! Check it out at DSO

I made a little gift for you for the color challenge.

While We Were Away...



The Scrappity-Doo-Dah designers and team members were cooking up something special for you!



The whole team at SDD appreciates all our customers, and our whole team want to thank you for your continued patience - both in the time that we were down and our migration over to a new, more (ahem) reliable host. We hope that this blog hop will make up for it!



More than 15 of the designers and some of the CT, Love Birds, and Moderators of SDD have come together to bring you this huge kit - While We Were Away. We know you missed us while we were away and we missed you too!



If you take all of the stops of the blog hop you will end up with a huge, beautiful kit that you will be able to scrap almost anything with. You'll also receive a ton of quickpages, courtesy of our Creative Team, Love Birds, and Moderators!




First I want to take a moment to tell you that a ton of designers have sales and specials going on this weekend to make up for the downtime. Be sure to check all of them out this weekend!
 
 


Please understand - SDD will be going through a host move throughout the weekend and possibly into the week still. If the store does happen to be down, be patient and try again later. We may experience some downtime during the move, but rest assured if there is, we will try to fix it ASAP!




And now on to the blog hop!



Here's what you'll be receiving from me today!

Sorry links have expired
And don't forget to stop at the next blog to grab your next piece.You should have come from Inspired by Dominic Designs and your next stop will be http://www.2minutes2myself.com/. If you get lost, you can find all the blogs right here:
