My girls and I have been smashing lately and the craftroom is very messy. We are having lots of fun playing in the smashbooks, its fun to have a place for all those random pictures and everyday bits and scraps of our daily life. I've been busy getting ready for Christmas and haven't been blogging much lately, here is a sample of what we have been up to in the craftroom. Have a wonderful thursday :)

So glad to finally receive the Smash books, they are really cool, I know I will have lots of fun with them, I have kept two for me and the others are for the girls, they have already started filling them. Such fun!!! Once I finish the collage journal I will start playing in them : ) The week is flying by so fast, can't believe next week is Thanksgiving, looking forward to getting together with the family, I have so much to be thankful for this year. Can't wait till next week, the girls will be off for the entire week from school, we plan on doing lots of baking and getting things ready for next thursday. Well I'm off to have my morning brew now, hope everyone has a great day.

The guys went to a soccer game early this morning, which means I had some free time for coffee and doodleing, it all worked out wonderfully especially since Sophia took an early morning nap. My kind of morning.

I can't believe it's Friday again, where do the days go? Time to do laundry again, blchhh, my least favorite thing to do. I have been baking alot this week, I love freshly baked warm muffins in the morning with my coffee. I think I will bake a cheesecake later today :) my sons favorite. Excited cause I received some new journals in the mail yesterday, a handmade one from Etsy and an Exacompta, I can't wait to start working in them, new journals always make me happy!!!

I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed this week, I am so behind on house chores, I have so much to do but I can't seem to catch up. There is always so much to do and between cooking, cleaning and laundry, I haven't been able to get to the bigger stuff like cleaning and organizing the gameroom/craftroom. And I haven't been able to throughly straighten out the laundry room. Of course with a four month old I shouldn't expect to do everything as I did it before, but I get stressed when things are not as I think they should be. I haven't had anytime to work in my art journal this week, and that is the one thing that helps me relax. I really need to make some time for it today, I always feel so much happier when I do. On a good note I finally got my new stove and oven and that makes me VERY happy, I was finally able to do some baking and that was great!

I have not posted anything in a while, been very busy with Sophia, but I have managed to squeeze in some journaling here and there. Any spare time that I have I try to work in the art journals, yes I have more then one started right now. I have slowing been bringing my art supplies and journals downstairs, I have ended up working on the kitchen table now, I do have all that space upstairs in the "gameroom" but it seems I have a better chance of working on my art stuff downstairs. My journal is my escape, if I am stressed or upset it makes me calm and relaxes me, I just love to feel creative, and these journals is where I "dump" it all.

Here are a few layouts I've worked on recently, I have way too many pictures that I still need to scrap, just don't have enough time. We are getting ready for Javis' graduation and for Sophies arrival. We finally got the crib assembled, now I just have to by the bedding for it, I really love the Jungle Jill crib bedding by Carters. We have so many things to do and so little time, I'm glad the kids will soon be out of school for the summer, just six more days of classes....woohoo!!!

It's been a lazy Sunday and I haven't gotten too much done today, I have been really tired lately(8 more weeks till d-day) but have still managed to do some more pages in my art journal. I had lots of fun doing this one , but now I am not sure what to do with it next, I am really loving the bright colors of the background and the squares. The background is oil pastels, which came out a bit messy, so I decided to cover with these really colorful squares, which is card stock that I inked, painted , stamped and distressed, I am "in love" with these squares .
