Summer Vacation and other things...

Wow! Two weeks since I wrote my last post. It was not until yesterday, when I was able to create one simple layout. So, if you ask what has kept me so busy???. It was the following:
  • Tax season, open education IRA, get all the paperwork, and sending it to the Treasury Department.
  • Next was selling on Ebay. Since the beginning of April, I started selling on EBAY, with the intention to do a sever spring cleaning, and eliminating house clutter. It was better than I expected, as of today I had already sold more than 20 items on Ebay, which range from scrapbooking books, stamps, figurines, more books etc. My best seller item was three DOMINO magazines (retired) from 2006/2007 which the winning bid was $46. I had realized that, it really takes time to package all those items and going to the post office. Ebay selling had substituted the time, I had available to do scrapbooking and/or blogging. I am looking forward to selling more items.
  • The scheduled car maintenance.
  • Swimming pool classes, basketball, chorus classes.
  • Buying books for next school year. Online of course.
  • The 6th birthday of my son, which we did a pool and pizza party, yesterday saturday. This includes the planning of this activity last week.
Today, I did four loads of laundry, and almost sorted all the clothing. It is 4PM, and I already put everything for school tomorrow morning, including the bag with my son's bathing suit for his swimming school classes at school. This is great, since lately I had been forgetting this bag. Wow!!!, you already be, a little tired, of reading this.

In summary, I expect to have more time available for scrapbooking and blogging this week. I really like the weeks, when there is nothing planned, and I can be at a slower pace. No stress!!!

Well, returning to the scrapbooking theme. I created this layout from my family cruise summer vacations on 2008. This is me, with my two sons at the restaurant lobby on July 21, 2008. We were waiting for our turn to eat dinner. I used a retired page kit from Close to my Heart. The sketch is Sketch #120 from Sketch Inspiration.
Supplies: Patterned Paper & Cardstock: Close to my Heart (CTMH), Flowers: Heidi Swapp, PRIMA and Hero Arts, Marker: ZIG Memory System Millennium 005, Stickers: CTMH, Rhinestone brads: Stampin UP (fire squares)

Hoping, you have a great week too!

Wow Yara!!! What a couple of busy weeks you've had! I have thought about doing the exact same thing about de-cluttering my house. Selling on Ebay-how fun! You layout is too cute. What cute little boys you have. I love cruising too! I also love weeks when there is nothing extra planned. Relax and create!
