~~..::Closer and Closer::..~~

Getting closer and closer to being finished. Here are Jetmax cubes that I have. I have 18 of them now. I think this will complete my obsession with them as I have run out of room to house them... They are quite addicting. I swear if I had more room, I probably would have a whole wall of them!...

Ohhh just had a though.. I have a hide away closet area.. I probably can house some in there instead of the 3-drawer sterlite containers I use... They serve the same purpose though, maybe I ought to just keep them!

Here's another view!


I've gotten around to taking some up to date pictures of my scraproom... It still isn't quite finished, but here is what I have so far!

~~::..Finally moved!::..~~

Finally moving into my new place and getting the scraproom together!.. It's a lot of work, but someone has to do it.. It is a slow going process, but I'm going to take my time in getting there.. I wish I had some help to get things together, but it's just me and no one even remotely close to come help me out!.. But it's okay.. it will give me a chance to go through and look at all the goodies that I have!..

~~..::Random Thoughts::..~~

Packing is so much fun!.. Hopefully this will be the last move for a good while.. I keep looking at the picture of the scraproom I am going to be getting and thinking.. Why am I not thinking about the rest of the house?.. I love the house as a whole, but to accumulate my own scraproom is an accomplishment..

I can honestly say that I have hit an all time low with the Cricut message board.. Today was so awful and all because of a question I posted to a message board member!.. Another came in and started talking... what they would call their opinion.. and it went downhill from there!.. I have learned that I now can only associate myself with a few select members on the board!.. I've gotten close to many of them and I guess there are some that don't care for me.... That's fine too, because they don't make me!!.. This was my first time every belonging to such a board and it really has left a bad taste in my mouth.. I never thought that people can be so ugly about what you say that had nothing to do with them in the first place!.. I enjoyed going to the cricut website everyday.. I spent most of my days there.. I see now that I really need to find another MB and casually frequent the Cricut board!..

I guess this means I will now spend a lot of time on my blog!.. I can say what I want to say and if someone feels the need to say some BS out of the way.. I can delete them...

An update on my move... Hopefully I will be moving by next week!.. I've already got everything packed up and almost ready to go... Just to get the everyday things together that we use.. SO can't wait for me to move... He doesn't really like how the teenagers hang out where I am.. I'm okay with it because it's the teenagers that live here.. It's not like they are coming from elsewhere to hang out here!...

Well thanks for reading for those of you who are reading.. I won't be able to add anything scrap-related until I get moved because everything is packed up..

Thanks for stopping by!

~~..:Getting a new SCRAPROOM:..~~

Can't wait until I am moved into my new house.. I will be gaining a basement scraproom... A whole room to myself... I can't believe it... I am so excited.. I'm really going to hate the moving part though, but if it means for me to get my own room.. I'm all for it!!... I was scrapping in the closet, but now as some of my other friends have said.. I can come out of the closet,lol..

~~..:Thank You!!:..~~

This is a Thank You card I made for my SO for being the friend he is to me!.. It is nice to have someone other than family members and friends in your life.. Someone that makes you laugh and smile at the right time is a blessing!..

~~..:Yes I do.. I love me some Monica!:..~~

I have been a Monica fan since she first debuted in 1995!.. I love everything about her.. I have every CD she has out.. I hear there is another CD coming out in October.. OMG!!.. I will be right there waiting for it!.. I have tons of pictures of Monica and am currently working on an album all about her!

~~..:The scrapbedroom/closet:..~~

Most of you have seen my video on how I've utilized my bedroom/closet as my scrap room.. I've taken a few pictures to show those of you that could not view the video. I've thought of redo-ing the video, but the second time around isn't like the first. I kept remembering things I didn't say in the first video and then I would remember things I didn't say in the second one. So the best thing for me to do I think is to post pictures..

~~..:My Cricut cartridge storage:..~~

This is how I store my cricut cartridges. I have more there now and the stamps aren't there, but this is where they all are.. I'm soon going to be running out of room,lol...

I work now in the medical field and love everything that has to do with medical terminology. Medical Terminology is a whole new language.

Five things on today's to do list:

  • Try out Capadia's mesh .cut file.. it looks awesome!.. I'm thinking I can use it as a background for one of my layouts!.. Don't hold me to it Capadia, but I'm going to try my best to use it.. I've already downloaded it...
  • Laundry
  • Sleep
  • Organize more of scrap supplies
  • See if I can find a MAN!!!!
Snacks I enjoy

  • Chips
  • French fries
Places I have lived:

Florida and Georgia.. I know.. I've not been around much!

People who I will tag:

NOBODY!.. I don't like tagging people.

~~..:Secretsister gifts!:..~~

My secret sister from the message board sent me this lovely gift.. I'm sure you guessed it... My favorite color is brown!.. She altered a paint tin and filled it jammed packed with ribbon!..

She did an awesome job!..I have so much enjoyed her these past 7 months and it's my pleasure to call Marie Eisenhower my NSSS since I know know who she is!

~~..:My Sims2 addiction:..~~

I am a big Sims2 fan!... I have been playing this computer game for about 7 years almost 8.. It was my first love before I started scrapbooking. They are now coming out with a Sims3, but I'm not sure of how my computer will handle it because the game itself is so demanding..

~~..:My Scraproom Tour:..~~

My Scraproom Tour from Softbrn on Vimeo.

I did this video today after I got home from work.. Took me sooooo long to actually get it uploaded somewhere!.. I'm glad I finally have it up though!.. I hope you enjoy my space and feel free to ask questions!..

By the way.. in the bookcase at the beginning... the two storage bins... I completely over looked them.. They contain my studio G stamps and inkadinkado and Autumn leaves dollar stamps.. Don't know how I overlooked them... Well maybe because I shot the video three times...

~~..:You fill me up:..~~

A quick card I made this morning.. did the coloring while at work yesterday!..I seem to get a lot of coloring done while I'm at work!

~~..:My first SWINGER's card:..~~

This is a card I got inspiration from on YouTube. I feel in love with the idea of it the minute I watched the video. I didn't do it exactly as she, but I finished it up simple since I was actually doing it at work.. in between patients. I am surprised I actually finished the whole card. We were kinda slow too.. The doctor I was working with was surprised I did cards...

This is one from **Snoflak**.. She sent me a set of chalks.. alphabet letters.. and some borders.. she also sent me a baggie full of mint chocolates and some flowers... they are soo pretty!..


This is a RAK received from AuntieTT.. I was sooo shocked to receive this!.. She knew my favorite color was brown and made me a checkbook cover!..

~Simple card I made..~

A card I did quickly.. I think I'm getting better at them!.. I still don't think I'll be a stamper though, but I won't give up!.. I have a few cards I have in mind so hopefully within the next couple of days I can get them done and loaded up here.

This is the Target version of the Making Memories desktop carousel. I painted mine black because most of the furniture for my scraparea is black!.. I kinda messed up a little because some of the paint ran. I ended up giving it to my daughter for her things because I was just not happy withit... I'm thinking of getting the Making Memories embellishment center and spray painting it black to go along with my other items... I also might go ahead and get the Making Memories carousel and paint it black too!..lmao..

~Sweet Lady~

This is my latest creation. It was done for challenge 7 on . I enjoy the challenges there because it helps me use the stash I have instead of buying new things because I love to shop.

Here is a photo of my half-way done scrap area. I use my bedroom for scrapping as I live in an apartment and have limited room. It works out nice for the most part because I look at everything I have everyday. I am currently organizing as best as possible, but it is hard having a bed in here too. I do a little and then get the urge to lie down!.. I have been thinking of turning my living room into my scrap area because we don't sit in there and I get no visitors..

~Contrats to you!~

Here is a card I did in challenge 8 on in honor of my daughter graduating high school..

~~My very 1st card~~

This is a card I did for a challenge on It's my very first card. I do not know about doing cards for some reason. Maybe once in a while I will do one, but as for doing them all the time... uhhh uhhhh!!.. A lot of the cards I have seen on the site are amazing! The girls have so much creativity and do such awesome work, but I think I will be sticking to doing layouts :-)...

~~My Favorite Girl~~

I am such a big Monica fan! This is a layout that I did of one of her photos. I have been following her since she was outed at the age of 14 in 1995. I have all of her CD's and try to keep up with the news of what's going on in her life. I will soon have an scrapbook album of her using the hundreds of photos I have been saving! I don't know anyone else that is such a big fan as I. I moved to Georgia in hopes of meeting her one day. She recently had a baby and I can't wait to get those pictures to scrap as well

~~More than just a daughter~~

This is a LO I did of my oldest daughter. It was a quick layout and I enjoyed searching for colors and the paper for it. The mat is embossed using the new folder "You" on the cuttlebug.

~~All Smiles~~

This is a LO I did of my daughter. She is always smiling. One of my friends even nicknamed her smiley because she's smiling all the time.

New Blog?

Wow I have finally taken the plunge to create a blog!.. Hopefully I will be able to keep up with everything.. I will be trying to post some of my completed projects here..{that's if I even complete them!}.. (don't laugh)... I'm really trying.

Thanks for stopping by!,
