Kicked out of my test....

So one of my classmates and myself were asked to leave the room we were suppose to take our final in....why? b/c we were both coughing up our lungs O.o So instead of taking our test in the big lecture hall we went next door and had the whole room to ourselves and well our respective coughs that is...LOL

Addicted to shopping? Me too...

Just thought I would mention about the great rebate program I use. I get money back for shopping online at places like, Gap,,, and I've only been using the program since this past January and already I've earned over $20 for purchases I would have made anyway. I encourage you to check it out. You don't even have to signup to take advantage of their special offers :-) Just scroll down to the bottom of the blog for the link and the current specials....

Coughing, Bad Weather, and Finals....Ugh

So I've been sick for the last week which doesn't make studying for finals any fun at all. So far I've taken 3 which means I'm half way done...YIPPEE! I have the killer of all finals on Monday and with the bad weather all that's really available for me to do is study so I guess that's good :-P I do manage to find my study breaks it bad that I've already taken 2? LOL. My first one I spent watching last night's episode of Dollhouse and for my second I worked on my SheetLoad April challenge (to see what I'm talking about go here). I really love the stamps from The Greeting Farm...they're just too cute! So cute in fact that I bought their new stamp Graduation Anya so I can make my friends who are graduating from Optometry School this May some awesomely cute graduation cards :-D The stamp is actually a digital one that I can print out and color or upload it to a paint program (ie very similar to photoshop except it's FREE!) and color it in there. I'm also working on making their graduation presents. When I'm finished with all of them I'll be sure to post them on here after I give them to them of course ;-) don't want to spoil the surprise.

I can't wait for finals to be over....just one more week....just one more week....

I'm looking forward to spending the Saturday after my last final catching up on all my scrapping and cardmaking and working on my inchies for my inchie swap after all it will be National Scrapbooking Day. Usually I just create stuff on my own in my own time but recently I got involved with a scrapbooking forum on and I've met a TON of nice ladies on there who are SUPER TALENTED and I can't wait to sponge off of them :-)

Okay I better get back to studying but I will hopefully be finished with my card challenges by the end of this weekend and will have them showcased here....

Pictures of my new project

The first two are some of the things I'm going to add and the last 2 are views of the main canvas.

Finally Joining the Blogging Community

I guess I'm a little behind in the whole blogging thing but better late than never. Mostly this blog is about my efforts to reduce stress by scrapping. I guess I started off small like most newbies do with a sort of slap it on mentality to my photo albums. My mom saw that I was jazzing up my pics and gave me a scrapbooking set at my following birthday....well, I hate to say I haven't even used it nor the ones she's given me since but it's true at least partly. How can you "partly" scrapbook? you ask...well I started using the papers and embellishments that came with the scrapbook sets and used them to make other things, specifically, handmade cards. I am obsessed with making greeting cards by hand and slowly as my obsession grew so did my craft making supplies. I have now graduated from a crafting backpack to actual plastic storage which is currently becoming too small for all my stuff.

Recently I have gotten into altering artist canvases but have yet to fully complete one. However, I have gotten the canvas painted, all the 2" squares of different scrapbook paper cut out and with some rearranging now and then, gotten all 63 squares in place though not yet set in stone so to speak. As my first project here on my site I'll be taking step by step photos as I progress (you always do have more pics of your first baby don't you? lol). So sit back, relax and enjoy :-)
