TallyScrapper Survivor Game: Week 1

Just because I'm crazy, I signed up to play a game on TallyScrapper that lasts the duration of the Survivor TV show. We'll see how it goes! Really, creating one page per week is not really that much of a committment... yes, I'm saying that now...

Anyway, this week's challenge had all kinds of funky requirements:
* must be 12x12
* must have a stitched edge
* must have a paper pieced tree
* include an owl, bird, hedgehog or deer
* have 2 photocorners
* journal on a cloud
* 3 photos
* and title it Life Is Beautiful

But is it contagious?

I've come down with a severe case of PREGNANT. Luckily, there's a complete cure.... but the side effects last a lifetime.

Whine, whine, whine! I'm big and my head aches and the braxton-hicks are kicking my butt...

Minnesota Renaissance Festival

I wasn't sure if I would make it this year, but I did go to the Renaissance Festival today with Dave's older brother and his family. We got there about 9:30, in an effort to beat some of the heat (80 degrees today!) and the crowds. That was smart. Since the last few weekends the weather has been crummy, it's like all of Minnesota came out today to enjoy a last taste of summer before cold sets in. By 1:00, it was packed, so we wrapped it up and left around 2:00. While we were there, we enjoyed the performers, the food, and a few of the shops. For years I've wanted to get a Christmas ornament from the glass blowers; this year I finally did.

And now, bed!

An Eclipse?

This was actually last week, I was taking a few quick pictures of some scrap layouts... I knew I didn't have the right lighting to get a good photo, but these were going in the mail so I thought, what the heck. First photo, forgot to turn the flash off. Second shot, flash off, arms tucked close to the body to hold the camera still, don't bother checking the viewfinder to see I've got more belly than page...

Copying Minda...

What Lisa Means

You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.

You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.

Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.

You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.

You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.

You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.

You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.

You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.

You have the classic "Type A" personality.

I Bought a Boat

I was looking at Craig's List, and I saw this boat and it was too cute and too cheap to pass up! The only trouble is that it was in South Minneapolis (very close to Nancy's, actually) and it took a little bit of navigating to get around the construction.... Getting home was easy though, once I figured out what streets are still open.

It's solid wood, and needs a little TLC of sanding and touch-up paint. Right now it's in my living room, because it's too heavy for me to get it anywhere else :)

Five Weeks, so they say...

My due date is in five weeks. Things are going well, I'm feeling pretty good except for the typical aches and pains. He squirms around a lot and to my mind has very bony hips and knees. I have an appointment next Monday, and from that point on, it all remains to be seen. I'm hoping to be able to work until October 2, and then take time off after that. Will he cooperate?
