Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio allows me to create my Christmas/Holiday cards without having to cut the card stock. It's great! I am sometimes overwhelmed by all of the cardstock, punch and embellishment choices. I made this card using MDS this evening and later tonight or tommorrow, I will post the actual card. The digital card took me about 5 minutes to put together.
On another note, it has been raining all day. I have finally completed the literature review for my thesis - all 25 pages. I don't know that I could look at it again. Tomorrow is my last day of classes for the Fall Semester. I am looking forward to a break from my evening classes. Hopefully, I will have one more semester because I am not sure of how much more of this I can take. I would like to be able to spend all of my additional time on creating scrapbook layouts and holding workshops.
I am now off to write a lesson plan on Ancient Greek contributions to modern society...
Thanks for taking the time to read and allowing me to share.

Stampin' Up's My Digital Studio arrived this week. Here's the problem...I can't stop playing with it. I must admit that when I am not writing lesson plans or grading, I spend every waking minute on my computer.
I am the person who will spend hours on a simple layout. With MDS, I am able to create a layout, preview, and edit before I begin cutting and adhering paper. MDS significantly cuts down on the time it takes for me to create an original layout. While I am not an expert yet...I though I would share a very simple layout of my beloved JuJu. This Christmas will be my second holiday without her.

Argh, it's the holiday season and I am without a camera. What am I to do? Today, I visited Adam's Fairacre Farm for their annual holiday events. I was accompanied by my eight year old cousin, Dylan. All I could think of were all the moments I was not capturing with my beloved Canon digital camera. So, I may need to forego a couple of lunches and trips to Michael's over the next couple of weeks and purchase a new camera.
Since I don't have any new pictures to post, I thought I would share a couple pictures of ny beloved best friend JuJu and my brother's dog, Roxy the Destroyer.

Each year I try to get myself a little something for Christmas. It's usually a product I have had my eye on during the year and felt too guilty to purchase without any particular reason. Last year I was fortunate enough to find the Cricut Expression on sale at Walmart. This year I am super fortunate to have found the Gypsy at Michael's for $99. As a bonus, I was also able to purchase an ATG at 50% off.

I would like to share my love of scrapbooking at my local Veteran's center by volunteering to hold scrapbooking classes. I am just unsure if this would be meaningful enough to them. Has anyone done anything similar? If so, would welcome your thoughts and ideas.
Thank you for allowing me to share my Dad Victor with you today. God Bless our Veterans, our soldiers who continue to serve and protect, and God Bless our Nation.

On another note, I am looking for a crop buddy. As many of you already know, Michael's holds a crop each last Friday of the month. I plan on attending the July crop at the Newburgh store. I have never participated, but I think it will be loads of fun.
Looking forward to many more posts and thanks a bunch for subscribing to my blog.
