P.S.

In my fluster to correct my WordPress’s mistake in accidentally publishing my last post, I forgot to add something.

(Wouldn’t it be funny if I accidentally published this one right now?  You would forever be wondering what I forgot to add.)

(Or not.)

Anywho.  The point is that I have been scrapbooking a lot lately and have been pretty excited about some of the new techniques and pages I have copied created.  I’ve been posting pictures of said pages on my other blog, myscrapbooksite.com, but am trying to figure out how to re-post them here, as well.

This is for those of you who don’t care a lick about scrapbooking but are interested in the many, many pictures of our kids that end up filling said scrapbooks.

Meanwhile, until I am able to figure out the whole republishing thing, feel free to visit the other site.  You might just discover there’s a hidden scrapbooker lurking inside of you.

And yes, scrapbooker is totally a word.

Because I just added it to wikipedia.

(Not really.)

And just to whet your whistle, so to speak, I am including my newest favorite page.  Enjoy!

We Interrupt This Blog To Bring You This Special Announcement!

Okay, so you know how I’ve been writing about Hawaii and have been, well, kind of obsessed with the whole trip thing?  Guess what – it hit me today that it’s December.  And I have NOT ONE DECORATION up yet.  I have no Christmas cards mailed, addressed, stamped, or even signed.  I have only a handful of gifts bought – a mere drop in the proverbial bucket.  AND IT’S DECEMBER 5TH!!!!  TWENTY DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!!!

Not that I’m panicking or anything.

So I got an email from Creative Memories reminding me that I have to order any gifts by December 8th in order to get them in time for Christmas, so I clicked through to their digital center and my mind drifted to someone – who shall remain nameless – who I think would really love some note cards.  I’m not going to order them because I already have too many ideas for that person but it occurred to me that many of you who read my blog may not know about the CM digital center.

The CM digital center is not like the site where you order scrapbooking products.  On this site, you can print photos, create all kinds of photo gifts, design and print Christmas cards, invitations – you name it.  In fact, while I was on my trip, our Christmas cards were delivered.  I debated whether or not to post it here, knowing that probably all of you will be on our card list, but ultimately I decided it was too cute not to share.  And not to brag (okay, maybe I’m bragging a little), but I designed the entire card this year!  In other words, I created it from scratch, mostly using some of the new techniques I’ve been learning from Pixels 2 Pages (you can purchase a subscription on my CM page).

Of course, anything you buy on the digital site will be credited to me, if you just put my name in as your consultant.  Don’t worry – I promise not to put you on any list or anything!  I’m not into all that pressure marketing stuff, and truthfully, I don’t like that CM is a direct marketing company.  The reason I don’t like that is because I don’t like it when people try to sell ME stuff through direct marketing.  But don’t tell them I said that.  I might lose my status as a consultant, and my discount along with it.

So, this concludes our special announcement.  Now back to your regularly scheduled program.  That’s right.  I have a video from my vacation, taken with an underwater camera off the coast of Maui.  It’s hard to believe that just a week and a half ago, I was snorkeling and today we had snow flurries.  Go figure.
