Went to Maryland on 8/15.
Visitied my 97 1/2 year old grandmother, she is doing well. We also went to Adventurepark USA, a Red Sox game and Six Flags Safari. I'm more tired now that I was before I went on vacation. Had a great time and the kids did too.
The kids are back to school next week- ya hoo!! Actually they are both looking forward to it.
Well I'm back to work and have lots of catching up to do.

Cricut- I love it! i have 4 cartridges and just ordered 3 more.
Had to make a bridal shower card and was able to tell my daughter what i wanted and in what color, she ran the cricut and I glued everything down on the card. Simple and it looks really nice!
I've seen that people are using their cricut to cut out pieces and then are selling on e-bay.
I am going to try that, I think the Disney figures might sell, people are always scrapping their vacations and especially trips to Disney, so why not try to sell these really cute pieces for their own work. I am going to add some items to my store when i return from vacation.
been watching the Olympics faithfully. Love that Michael Phelps!
Off to Maryland tomorrow, can't wait! A few days on my uncles farm and going to catch the Red Sox play at Camden yards.
Go RED SOX!!
Be back next week................

I am still working on LOs for ebay, I also have a bunch of cards to add.
I think I am going to work on things all month, then list all at the same time.
That way summer will be over and I think there will be more action.
Thinking of offering complete 20 page scrapbooks. Will see how that goes.
Off to Maryland on friday, the kids are very excited. I'm not looking forward to the drive, but I know we will have fun when we get there.
Then comes birthday weeks, 5 birthdays in the next few weeks.

Here is another a few more of my cards.
Last night the kids and I went squidding....we've never been before but caught several and had fried calamari when we got home. I've never cleaned a squid, only fish in the past, but I picked it up pretty quickly and shortly after dinner was served.

My new cricut came yesterday, have only had a few hours to play with it so far. It seems like it will be a great tool for scrapbooking. I finished another few layouts to put on e-bay. The summer seems to be very slow, no movement on my items. I will continue to build an inventory of layouts and albums and hope that they will move when the summer is over.

I recently learned how to create paper piecing figures and tear bears. I'm not sure that I am a big fan of them yet, although I see there are many premade scrapbook pages selling on e-bay with both techniques. I have listed a few premade pages to see if I could sell them, the first time they didn't sell, not I've added a few furry tear bears and I want to see if that changes anything. I have had a lot more hits than I did without the bears.
Hope this blog works out and I have others that would like to share and read with me.
