Whew!! It took me all day to get this site lookin' the way I wanted it to!! FINALLY!! :) I guess I still need to update those little calendars on the side, but I'm tired of doing that for now!! LOL Now, to be fair, I didn't acutally spend all day on the computer!! LOL It just felt like it!! :)

So, I've been a busy bee lately!! I've really wanted to blog, but haven't had time to really devote to just sitting down & blogging, and it's been bugging me!! I've totally had some, "I've gotta blog that" moments...

So, I know I've shared with you all that I've been thinking about selling some pre-made scrapbooking wares, I just didn't know how to do it as far as a home-show kind of business...well, today Steve did the checkbook & said he just prayed over it & he wasn't going to worry about it. Then he asked the Lord to clearly & specifically show us how to earn a little extra money, if it be him getting another pt job, or me doing something. He was at work when he did this, and I hadn't talked to him yet. Well, as you know I had a lot of computer time today, and I put a couple of things up on ebay. While I was there, I did a search for "pre-made scrapbooking pages" & a TON popped up...towards the top of the list was a double lay out (only 2 co-ordinating pages w/ the same theme for those of you who aren't into scrap lingo), and it had 10 bids on it, 5hrs left, and the top bid was $61!! I emailed that to Steve, and said, "I think I've found what I'm supposed to be doing!" He immediately calls me laughing, and says, "You'll never guess what I just prayed about not even an hour before I got your email!!" So, we had a God-moment today. Okay, every moment is a God-moment, but you know what I mean...

It makes me want to just rake off the kitchen table & set up scrapbook camp!! :) LOL Now, I did more "research" on ebay just to see what the going rate for a pre-made scrapbook page(s) were going for, and was surprised to see that there were some more lo's going for $25-35 (and that was a 1st bid), and there were lots that had no bids, but there was still time, ya know? There were also ones that were only going for $5-$10, and some $15, so you get the picture. So, there is a want for this type of thing. Just exciting :)

Okay, there's tons more to share, but I gotta go...Steve made me a s'more!! :) YUM-O!! :)

Love you all!! :) I hope the new look is easy on your eyes!! :)

That's awesome about the scrapbooking thing. Man, I can't believe those go for that much! I saw at Hobby Lobby and Flower Factory both scrapbook-looking picture frames....there's another idea for you. I really hope you can make some good money at this!

Love ya!

So cool about the scrapping opportunity! So, uh, if you ever need supplies or a certain paper, let me know. I have so much stuff I'll never get to, I'll give it to you if you reimburse me for shipping, LOL! I can't wait to see some of the pages that you do!
