Livin' live for 3 years...

Scraploft.com has been live on the internet for 3 years now. Our anniversary has come and gone. It's been a tough year. Not sure what the future holds for the store. But I did want to say that I really wish this would have gone where we wanted it to go. I have enjoyed our time so far. Some things have changed, but one thing remains the same-I still love to scrapbook! That is the one thing I didn't want to change, and it hasn't. Thank goodness! :-)

We are having some issues with the site at times, to no sale right now. Thank you for your continued support!

6 months old!

Sophia is 6 months old already! Wow, where does the time go? I did a "mini" photo session out in our yard. It was fun. She loved being in the grass. The boys even got in for a few pictures! I am excited to get these photos onto a page eventually! :-)
I hope all of your summers are going well!

National Scrapbook Day!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day weekend! Get out and enjoy this weekend and enjoy this wonderful hobby we have. Create something, take pictures, or just create memories to be documented later. Whatever it is you do this weekend, ENJOY!!!!

I will be working my "real" job this weekend, but will remember the special moments in my life. Though I won't be able to put them into an album this weekend, I can always keep them fresh in my mind. :-)

Busy, but fun, weekend

While saving some pictures on my computer last night, I realized that we had a pretty fun-filled weekend. Como Zoo on Friday, coloring eggs (and business tax stuff-yuck!) on Saturday, and Easter on Sunday. I cannot wait to document this wonderfully busy weekend in our albums!

I so enjoy spending time with my kiddos, nieces, and nephews. It brings me joy to see them all running around playing together. I hope your weekend was just as memorable and you took photos to document the joy!

Bonus-my little girl in an Easter dress made me happy.

Spring is here...finally!

I do believe (and hope) that Spring is finally here in Minnesota! The sun has been shining for more than one day now. The temperature will be in the 50s and maybe 60s the rest of the week. AWESOME! We are looking forward to coloring eggs, an easter egg hunt, the bunny coming, and spending time with family this weekend.

On a business note, trying to finish up the taxes. Always an interesting time of the year. It gives us a look at the overall picture of the year. Some thinking going on in our minds. Some decisions to me made. Look for a newsletter with a sale soon!

April 16th will be 3 years since it was decided we would start Scraploft. We didn't go live until August, but April 16th will always be a big day for us. Wow, how fast time has gone by. Some changes have happened with Scraploft over the 3 years, but for now we are still around. :-)

I will miss them...

Back to work today. I work the evening shift. 3:00-11:30pm. I only work part time, but this time around I'm sad to go back. After having my boys I was geared to get back. Be with adults again. I think this is a sign. A sign for change on the work front. We'll see. But until then I will enjoy every single moment I am able to be home with these 3 little munchkins.

Remembering these days

My scrapping stuff is all over the place. In the garage, downstairs, under the stairs, upstairs. You get the picture. Unfortunately this means all of my creativity has to remain in my head for now. Sophia is almost 3 months and I have done one page of her. One page. I don't want to forget any of her "moments" before I get to put them down on paper. It makes me sad that she is growing so fast. She is probably our last child and it's bittersweet for me right now. I want to remember everything!

Ali Edwards did a post today about her little baby and what she loves about her personality. I am going to jot down a few of the little things that Sophia does. The things that make her, well HER.

*the little squeaking noises you make while you are sleeping*
the way you lay with your hands above your head while sleeping-just like Matt did
your smiles
*the joy that comes across your face when you see your daddy or your brothers...it melts me.*
your girly clothes
your little birthmark on your head
*the way your pinky toes stick out when you fan out your toes*
your wild hair after a bath
baby smell after a bath
soft baby skin
*such contentment when you are held*
you still love to be swaddled
the noises you make when you have your dee-dee (our name for the pacifier here)
*your unconditional love for us at this point and ours for you always*

Then I will be able to journal about them when all of my stuff is one little room. Eventually...

Two things I am tired of-Sickness and Snow

We are suppose to be getting some rain/snow around here yet AGAIN. We were lucky that it missed our area on Sunday, but maybe not so lucky today. I am so ready for Spring and then Summer for several reasons. I hate driving in the snow. I love me some warm weather. Fresh air would be nice right about now for our family. And #1 reason for warm weather-Sandals and the beach!

Sickness has been trapped in our house for over a month now. First I had a stomach bug for a couple of days. Then Matthew (our oldest) had if for one day. No one else got that. Then a week later I got a really bad cold. Then Tyler (our middle child) had croup and ended up with a cold after that. Yesterday I took Sophia in for her 2 month well child visit and low and behold she had an ear infection! And last but not least, Matthew has been home from school for the past 2 days with a fever and cough. I also still have my cold mind you. So yes, fresh air would be very good for our family!

A special layout

When I went scrapbooking with my gals in January I brought Sophia along. I went into it expecting not to get much done as far as scrapping. We had a fabulous time and Sophia was quite the hot item there! :) I did manage to get this one page done. It's a special one because it's the first one for Sophia's album. It also means a lot to me because daddy and daughter have a special bond from day one. She knew right where her spot would be with daddy. Close to his heart. It's wonderful to have a girl in our little family. The added bonus: the bow in her hair!

Products: Paper, tag, and journaling spot: Making Memories; rub-ons: Basic Grey; ribbon

I did also start a mini album for family photos and I will post that once I get it finished. I am looking forward to a day of scrapbooking with Sarah and some other friends this Saturday.

It's been too long...

Hey everyone. I know that's it has been awhile since I posted on this here blog. We are still chugging along here with the store. We've been getting more orders lately than I expected. Which is GREAT! It's always interesting to see what people order from us and honestly it helps pay the bills a bit. :)

The last month has been filled with lots of things. Valentine's Day, school conferences, joy for Sarah's family, first smiles from Sophia, and daily life. I am so grateful for all of those special people in my life. You know who you are! :)

Keep on scrapping and pray for warm weather to stay in MN soon!

I'm going Scrapping!

I'm going to our annual scrapping retreat at Birch Park this weekend. I am bringing Sophia with me and we will be there during the day for sure. I'm not sure if we are staying over night yet. We will have to see how it goes day to day. I haven't worked on any scrapping projects since August! Will I even know what to do anymore? I did make some cards for a fundraiser last month, so I haven't been totally out of the crafting loop. I know it will be interesting to see how much I actually get done this weekend! :)

Sarah and I have talked about having a store sale soon. 2008 was a slow year in the industry. Let's hope 2009 will start out right for us! Keep checking back here for details.
