Scrap a Day, March 31st

Post by blbabe1234 » Tue Mar 31, 2020 12:24 pm

Good morning cherries. I managed to get the Sketch with a Twist Challenge done last night but after dinner, I just vegged in front of the TV. Totally brain dead after work.

Image

Anybody have plans to scrap today? Me - not sure. It all depends on how work goes. I was making a decent dent on a new form my client wanted but then some people weren't following directions and have skipped steps and now things aren't working right in the program. LOL. Ugh...just wish people would take 5 and read before moving on. I might need a drink at lunch if they keep this up! Bahahahaha!!!

If I do make it to my room, doubt I can actually finish anything. I do need to clean up my mess!

How about you?

Hi Brandy. Thanks so much for posting this for me today. I love your layout! That wood chip title piece is awesome!

I will be scrapping today. I finished up the layout I was working on yesterday. It is going to be for my March Music Challenge, which for a change I will actually get posted by the first. In fact, it will probably go up today! I was loving working with some really bright and cheery colors. It really lifted my spirits, as did that sweet pic of my happy girl.

Stay safe all my Cherry friends.

Haven't made it to my crafting space yet.  Laundry is going.  I made my own bleach cleaner and been wiping things down, as I am getting low on Clorox wipes.  Cleaned the bathrooms.  Yelled at my husband because he didn';t get a new butter out, after he was asking me if we had more.  And then I had none to use for my lunch.  Went out for a walk to clear my head.  Because tomorrow is suppose to be cold and snowy.  
But life goes on!!!  I am healthy.  Until tomorrow.

I haven't felt much like scrapping but I did get this one done for the March Alphabet Challenge.  We were supposed to have our cleaning ladies here today but after discussing with DH we cancelled.  However, since she's a single mom and her cleaning business is all she's got, we decided to go ahead and pay and tip her.  She was so grateful and it made me feel good I was able to do this.  I will continue to pay her if I can until this damn virus is gone.

What a sweet layout, Brandy.  I hope you made it through lunch without a drink.  Although it's only 3:00 pm and I'm counting down the hours (minutes) until I can have a glass of wine to help with my anxiety.

Good to "see" you Brandy!!

OMG, March is over!!  Went back to work today.  It's like a tomb!!!  No one in or out yet the emails are crazy!!!
I am still getting discovery requests, although they have slowed way down.  Most of what I came back to was 
reports the Prosecutors Office needs.  We don't have court scheduled until June, and I will be gone by then !


Not sure if I will get any scrapping done tonight.  I did send out points to the winners of the motivational challenge this morning but had to leave early to pick up coffee.
Although I planned one 500 point winner and two 250 point winners, only 4 cherries finished all challenges so I used random.org and reordered the names.  Donna (Retiree3) 
came up #1 so she got the 500 points.  The other 3 winners were Melissa (lissahope26), Deanna (Deanna13) and Loreen.  Now  have to do the finishing touches on the Spring Fling challenge for tomorrow.  Its gonna be different!!

Have a great day all!

Well, I printed out some of the challenges and went to my studio to work a couple of days ago. After a day spent cleaning it up, I started on an old album I've been working on with photos from when I went to Italy in 1989!  I didn't get any of the challenges done, but I did do 4 double-page layouts the past 2 days. :)  I also did the layout below for Silvia Romeo's CT.  That is dh's great-grandmother in the top right. :)

Adorable layouts, everyone!  Glad to see some of you finding your mojo.  Our Ohio governor closed schools until May 1 yesterday. :(  More online teaching...I hate it, the kids hate it, it saps all my creativity!  Just want to get back to normal, but I am not seeing the light at the end of the tunnel here.

Thanks Chris. Yeah, I managed to get thru the rest of the morning without anybody being stupid. Had a nice salad at lunch and then called my Aunt Laura (my mom's little sister) to see how she's doing. Her oldest son and his gf are on the frontlines and she's really nervous and prays for them everyday. They all live in San Antonio here in Texas. My cousin is a Medical Transporter - his job NOW is to pick up the COVID-19 tests and transports them to the lab for testing. His GF works at one of the labs and her boss just tested positive. :?

Oh Brandy, so good to see you and others here. I've not checked in since almost a year ago and that was so brief. My heart pounded as I had trouble finding the message board and I thought it was gone! But alas, I found it and here you all are. Just so good to see y'all still scrapping on. Did my mood good as I've been not in the best for a long time and this virus is particularly trying.

Retired last May, you'd think I'd jump on the chance to get going with my scrapping. Sadly, I guess I've been dealing with some mild depression cause I'm not getting anything I wanted to done. Other than facebook which has consumed my time, I'm being so lazy, unmotivated and just going from day to day. Started going up to the community center locally few months back for lunch and socialization but of course right now...not happening.

Anyhoo, no I didn't scrap today and not for a long time. Just had a desire to visit ACOT and see what's going on with old friends. So, snooping around a bit if ya'll don't mind. found some cherries, cleared out my wish list, LOL, barely anything in stock! So hey to everyone, keep on scrapping! Might surprise y'all and decide to dig through my stuff...heck got more grandkids and great grandkids that dont have a book!! That's not cool. 😬

Super sweet layout Chris. Glad that you are still having your cleaning ladies show up. Helping our fellow Americans is all we can do right now.
