layout a day
the end


for the first 20 days of january, i have had a blast making a layout a day. my goal was to make it 31 days. but "real life" had different plans... came up from out of nowhere... and hit me in the back of the head. so the only thing left to do is to cut some of the extras and try to manage whats left. so the l.o.a.d. class is one thing that had to go. :sigh: i'm still planning on scrapping each day for the rest of the month... but not adding the deadline in. :) happy scrapping & and just enough reserve to stay afloat!

Noel, I hope this just means that life just got a bit busy. I loved seeing your work and being inspired by it. I'll be praying that things become less hectic for you.

Hope life starts being a little more gentle to you! I just realized TODAY that you're doing the load challenge. Such bad timing on my part! And your layouts have been wonderful!

Pamela said...

I was wondering about that. I hope everything is ok. I probably won't make it either...but it has been fun...will you still get your HOF stuff done? (I remembered you were doing both because I was doing both). Again, hope everything is ok.

{{{HUGS}}} to you, girlie!! Take care of yourself, okay? You always amaze me with your ability to juggle it all and accomplish amazing things ;)

Rena said...

Just being a MOM is stress enough, but with all the other stuff that sounds like you got goin on is enough to break anyone down. Not that you are broken down, you just might need to know that we are all here together, going through everything together. Chin up!! Read Ali Edwards blog, she has a great quote on there and beautiful flowers to brighten anyones day.

I have been off the MB for awhile, but doing LOAD as my stress reliever ...hope things get better for you!

City Mouse said...

Hope everything is okay, Noel. We've never met, but your sweet soul shines through in everything you do so I hope you're alright.

Take care,

Lisa said...

Having to be a single mom added to the stress of deployment... you do an awesome job Noel, you are a great source of inspiration, not just because of your layouts, but because of all you cope with and your positive upbeat spirit. Praying for you, Stan and the girls. {{{HUGS}}}

Noel, hope that all is right in your world. I admire you for more than your scrapping ability (which is great!). You seem to be one of the young mothers and wives who has her priorities in order. LOAD has been fun, but many things are more important especially in a family.

Hi Noel ~ Hope it all slows down enough that you can catch your breath. It's not fair when Real Life gets in the way of scrapbooking!
