bUSy liTtLE BeE

As usual I am busy keeping myself busy :) Here's what I have been up to and some things I want to share.

--LOTS of homework ( I have to keep reminding myself that I only have three more weeks until I am done FOREVER!!)
--Finishing up the last week of my internship this week for the Petersen House Museum. Overall I think it went well. It was fun and I learned a lot. I HOPE *fingers crossed* that I can find something in this field in New Jersey.
--Speaking of New Jersey, 11 days and counting until we leave. I am SO SO excited! A little nervous but mostly excited :) So, I am busy packing, and making lots of arrangements. I am still waiting to hear back on a couple of things regarding the finances of the trip and am biting my nails until I know what's going on.
--So, since I am packing, this means that all my scrap stuff is being packed away :( However, I feel like this is a good thing. Although I love it, scrapbooking is not the only avenue of art that I enjoy. I feel like I need to get back to what started my interest in art, drawing, watercolors, colored pencils, stuff like that. So when I set up my new desk at our new place I am going to set it up for creating paintings and drawings, very excited about this.
--I cannot however completely give up journaling and photos, so I have decided to keep an art journal/ travel journal. I have limited myself to filling one 12 x12 art bin with supplies from my stash...let me tell you it is TOUGH to choose what to include. I am excited to see how it turns out though with a limited number of supplies.
--Lastly, I am jumping on the flickr bandwagon and starting my own page to share photos. Here is the address and it will be added to my links on the right. There is only one pic right now, but I will be adding more soon.
--One more thing...if I owe you a RAK, and you are checking this I am still sending them, just haven't got to the post office yet :)

OK....I have been wanting to do one of these for a LONG time...and now is the time! My first RAK...and trust me I will be doing more within the next few weeks :)

So the first one is for a Journaling Your Story idea book from Scrapbook Trends...I was published and given two copies...and one of you lucky folks will be the recipient.

Just leave a comment and I will draw Sunday night and announce the winner on Monday! Good Luck!

At ThE NOok

Well I have been online the last few days...a lot actually, but I haven't posted because I have been spending most of my time over that My Scrapbook Nook. I was invited to participate in phase two of a Design Team call and it has been awesome! I have been scrapping, and chatting and uploading non-stop! It is a great way to do a call. I won't know who made the team for another week or so and am dying of anticipation...but whatever the outcome I am going to stick around over there. It's nice to have people to talk to and obsess over this thing we call scrapbooking.

Other than that my life has been the usual homework (only for another 5 weeks though:) and errands. Our plans for moving are going along nicely and we should be out in a month. We put some stuff up for sale (furniture and stuff) and have almost sold all of it so that's nice. Need to do some more packing, but I need boxes first. I can't wait. New Jersey here we come!!!!
