Courtside at the Timberwolves...

LUNCH BLOGGIN' again... :)

SO. We were gifted with courtside seats to see the Timberwolves on Sunday, and we had a fabulous night! What a treat to sit courtside!

Mad and Wy were on their very best behavior (except for Mad making the bunny ears on Wy for the photo op, lol...)

Crunch (team mascot) likes to hassle the kids (and everyone sitting courside) - he made a big deal out of posing them "just so" on the court, messed up Wyatt's hair, and then this was the first pose, lol...

OH! THERE'S Wy's face! Thumbs up, Crunch!

The best part of the night? An OVERTIME WIN for the Wolves! They had a slow start to the season, but they are HOT for January 2009! Thanks for stopping by - I hope your team is winning!

Going, going, gone...

Studio Janet is closing down shop on January 15. (*insert my sad face here*) BUT - she has one final grab bag, and it's a DOOZY! If you are a fan of templates, then you have to check it out, because she has some treats in there! In addition to the templates, there is a coupon for a FREE template set, AND a coupon for 70% off!

OH - and the shop says the grab bag ended on January 6, but I just read over on Janet's blog that she is extending that until her shop closes on the 15th. YAY!

I have a list going of my *must haves* from Janet's shop...I am for sure getting one of the Fat Packs, and I also have my eye on a few other template sets.

NOW - on to the GOOD NEWS! Janet is not leaving the digi community forever (YAY!) - she is embarking on a NEW endeaver at The Daily Digi! The site launched on Jan 1 and I am already a big fan - I can't wait to see what she has in store! Right now, it is getting started with lots of tips and tricks and general information - check it out, and add it to your faves!

Are you keeping up with project 365? I've been having so much fun figuring out what to photograph each day - I need to get organized and share my pictures!

Right now - it is back to the "grind" as I am lunch blogging, haha...

Thanks for stopping by - have a great day!

January Calendar Page...

Well - the tree is down, the decorations are put away, and it's back to the rat race today! I have meetings for the morning, but wanted to pop in and share page 1 of my 2009 calendar...

I originally was going to skip doing a calendar this year, as I never got around to it in December, but then I stumbled on this cute calendar kit by Dani Mogstad, and I just had to make an effort, lol. (Energy, right?) The image is linked, if you are interested in making this project. (It's not too late!) It's in 8x10 format, but I am actually printing it smaller, to hang near my desk. One cool thing - it comes with a blank calendar as well as the 2009 format. SO - you could use this for any year, and just plug in your own corresponding dates.

Here is my January page - photo taken on January 2 - I will share the rest when I get them completed!

Thanks for stopping in, have a fab Monday!

One little word...

Can one little word change your life? I think it can! Ali Edwards started a tradition in her January 2007 newsletter to pick a word, one little word, to focus on for the year. A few of my blogging friends have been participating in this, and I felt inspired to do this too. We started chit-chatting about it mid-November I think? Then I got caught up in the holiday chaos of Thanksgiving and Christmas, and set it aside (sound familiar? Haha!) Well - we started chit-chatting about it again right after Christmas, so I pulled out my sticky note.

Haha - just ignore that I had frumpy on there. I decided I *do not* want to be frumpy in 2009, lol...I want to be the OPPOSITE of frumpy, so I went with ENERGY for my word. I feel more energetic already! I was so energized, that I had to scrap a page!

I also treated myself to this (with my word "energy" of course). I've been a fan of Lisa Leonard's jewelry designs for awhile, so when Ali posted about the coupon, it was a no brainer. See how energetic I am? *snort*

Did you make any New Year's resolutions? This is the first year in a long time that I haven't actually penned my resolutions down. I guess, since they are the same every year, I feel I can just remember them, haha, insert rolling eyeballs know how it is:

lose weight
drink more water
go green
give up caffeine (YA RIGHT!)
get organized
yada yada yada...

Do you see how most of these require ENERGY? Hmmmm...

One thing that I do want to focus on is more scrapbooking! I want to set aside time for this every week. I might even calendar this and set up reminder alarms. I did that with balancing the checkbook and I actually do that every week since it's on my calendar. The second thing I am focusing on is photography - I need to get back to using my camera (either the P&S or the DSLR will do) more often...

Thanks for stopping by - have a fabulous Sunday!

Project 365!

Jumping in...

So - the "photo a day" concept has been around for awhile, and I think that THIS YEAR, I am going to just DO IT!

And since I'm snapping all these photos, why not SCRAP THEM TOO, right??? (Image is linked to the info at the Studio Matters Blog)

I know what you're thinking! You're wondering WHERE THE HECK are those December Daily pages I promised???

LOL. I swear - I am *not* a December Daily Dud! I snapped the pics, and I jotted notes for journaling. BUT - the holidays are crazy, and I just fell right off the bandwagon! I refuse to feel bad about it! I will get my album complete (but y'all should prepare yourselves that you may not see it until NEXT December, lol...) because the pages and album are all ready to go - I just need to plop my stuff onto it.

Okay, maybe I am a dud.
I will do it.
I don't want to talk about it any more.
Don't hate me.

NEXT YEAR - my December Daily will be DIGI. I think that will be a much better fit for me!

ANYWAY - I am hoping that this Project 365 challenge will also get me scrappin' - and at the end of the year, I will have a nice fat album to show for 2009! YAY!

New Year, New Look, New Desktop!


PHEW - it's been awhile since I had a moment to breathe, never mind keeping up on the blog! Today I had some time, and wanted a "fresh and fun" new blog header, so I was tinkering around, and ended up with a whole new look, lol. (DON'T email me to ask me how I did it, because I have *NO IDEA* lol) I used Dani Mogstad's Sweet Cupcake kit and her Handstitched Alpha - links are in the sidebar. I am now on a mission to get some cute little buttons in my sidebar for archives, labels, and etc.

I wanted to share my January desktop - this is a desktop freebie from Shabby Princess - I just love her stuff! Of course you all know my best pooch, ha ha...

I have a TON to blog about, so hopefully I will be back soon!
