Oh, Scrappy Day!

Well hello there! Long time no blog! (corny, I know... but hey, I'm tired!)

First, I suck at blogging. S-U-C-K. I never make time for it. (obviously, since my last real post was in October 2009! Ugh) I have to admit - I'm not a fan of blogging. I like looking at other people's blogs, but when it comes to sitting down and uploading pictures and writing and...ugh. It makes me cringe.

However, I am going to try harder to post more regularly this year. I can't promise pictures every time, but I WILL try to post more often in general.

Now that my rant is over, I want to tell you about my super scrappy day. :)

I took the day off today b/c I thought I maybe had strep. (negative - woo!) Since I had the day to myself, I decided I needed to finally get some projects done that I have been sitting on forever. I made two 6x6" baby albums (which I was commissioned to create a looong time ago - sorry, guys! They're finally done!), two coordinating gift cards, and I altered a lunch box tin and made it a recipe box. This is for a dear friend who I hope doesn't read this before I give it to her. The pictures aren't the greatest, but you get the idea.

Here is a pic of all of my accomplishments for the day. Hooray!

Here is the baby girl album. I didn't take shots of every page, but you get the idea.

Here is the baby boy album. Again, I didn't take pics of every page...

They're pretty simple, but I think it'll be fun to look through to see how much your child grows in that first year. I have made a few of these as gifts and they went over pretty well.

Lastly, here is the tin that I altered.

I got the tabbed dividers from Staples and just covered them with the coordinating papers. The clip holding the recipe cards in the last picture can also be used as a little recipe stand. I found the "recipe for friendship" thing online and thought it was cute.

That's it for today! Thanks for looking at my newest goodies. This blog may get more action from me if I include scrappy goodness, so don't be surprised to see more of this. I'll get some pics of the kids on here sometime soon too. Have a good night!
