First let me say to all my amazing customers and readers…. I know I'm on a paper crafting hiatus, but don't give up on me. I know it won't be too much longer. <sigh>
I don't know about you but my "favorite" things list always changes. In fact I'm one of those girls who loves to scrapbook about my favorite things each year and I love seeing how they change.
Heather and I thought it would be a fun digital challenge to create a layout around your 5 favorite things. This challenge is really wide open. Seriously, you can do so many great layouts around this theme – Top 5 Favorite Things!
I was browsing the internet when I stumbled across a layout very similar to this one. Since my creative inspiration is at an all time low with this crazy move, I needed to draw my inspiration from others. The internet is my creative mojo right now! For me, it's the bomb diggity right now.
Typically for a theme such as 5 favorite things I would use pictures as my focal point to describe my 5 favs. This time I decided to use titles & journaling to describe my top 5 things and then a list of what they are. It turned out to be my Top 25! I like it. Actually, I love it.
Watch the video below to see a few design tips for creating this layout:

The adventure continues. Of course we hit a snag. We knew it would happen and today was the day. We've been so excited about the flooring going in. The wood is complete and looks amazing. I love love love it. The carpet is in the procress of being completed however we are short on carpet. I guess when it was measured they didn't include the closets. ??? SERIOUSLY???Not a big deal at first but then the way the carpet was cut it became a bigger deal. All rooms will be completed except for Alexis room which will still need a 12 x 4 ft piece.
Today I had a good cry. It was needed. It was coming. It's been coming for awhile. I'm trying SO hard to be patient. It's all coming along great, but the last few days I can tell I'm tired. We've been working in the house long hours everyday as well as working around the kids schedules and I'm just tired. Thankful, yet SO TIRED!
It was a healthy cry and I feel like I can take on another few weeks. We haven't decided if we are going to wait for the piece of carpet to come in before moving in or what. That could mean another 2 weeks of staying at my parents. It's been a wonderful stay but I'm sure they must be done with us. LOL. We have stuff everywhere. My OCD organized self is about to land in the funny farm from EXTREME disorganization.
Can anyone relate to this? Am I just going crazy mad?
I can't believe it's been a month since they packed our stuff. WHOA!!
Good news. Russ has a new vehicle. He is now the proud owner of a truck. He is so excited. It's a good thing because he would have been friends with Yellow Cab come Tuesday morning. There was no way we could survive on 1 vehicle and his work schedule.
Bad news… my Starbucks in farther than I like. I know, petty. You don't have to tell me. It's become a "treat" to go get my favorite drink instead of a daily thing. I plan to write Starbucks once I get settled. They need to know I need a store down the street from my house.
I'm going to continue to be strong…
Keeping my chin up and I can't thank you enough for always listening to me babble! I'll be back to my paper crafting self soon. It's just not as soon as I thought it would be.
