Well, that was easy!

As my (cough) loyal blog readers know (all 1 or 2 of you?) I'm taking the Blogging for Scrapbookers class from Shimelle ... and I have to say, I'm learning more than I thought.

First example?  Check out the new blog background.  Nifty huh?  I got it from The Cutest Blog on the Block's site.  Lots of cute things there ... and FREE!  Can't beat that, can you?

So what else have I learned?  Well ... that I cannot possibly read and comment on all of the blogs of classmates.  WAY too time consuming.  I have a slew of them in my Google Reader (which if you don't already have a reader of some sort, is totally awesome) and am able to flip through them relatively easily to see which I connect with and don't.  I've also realized that I have more to say than I originally thought!  If it's interesting and earth shattering on the other hand is totally up to you. :)

I'm irritated already this morning because I still have a headache from yesterday.  I'm prone to migraines, but this isn't one ... just an annoyingly bad headache that I was hoping would go away.  I have plans to clean up the house a bit, but also some fun stuff ... paint a chipboard album for my Journal Your Christmas class along with a paper mache tree that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.

Can we talk about Hobby Lobby for a sec here?  OH MY.  It's just ... SIGH ... delightful.  Yesterday my sister and I spent over an hour in there (more because of her indecision than anything ... but still).  I was good.  Really!  I got a couple of patterned scrapbook papers and the paper mache tree and a tube of bronze Christmas balls.  All for $13.  I LOVE this store.  Really cute things for home decor, holiday themed things are grouped together in the holiday section along with being in their original section (ex. Scrapbook paper and embellishments).

Okay ... enough from me.  Enjoy your Sunday and hopefully you'll be doing something fun!
