    Knitting, knitting and more knitting. I’m a bit obsessed really. I just learned how to knit and it’s like I was when I first started scrapbooking, I just can’t get enough! Currently I’m working on hats for a friend of mine that just had twin girls. :)

    I have been designed a program for a conference–cover and all. And I’m a social worker not a graphic designer. So it’s been pretty interesting to say the least.

    Normally I scrapbook, but lately my creativity has poured into planning and preparing our vegetable garden. It’s still too cold to plant much, but today, the kids and I will plant lettuce, spinach, and swiss chard. I can’t wait to see how they grow…and I’m sure our bunnies will be eagerly waiting too.

    wow..I am one of the first cool is that. I have ben working on lots lately. I have been doing quite a few mixed media paintings..more poor scrapbooking has been lacking because of it. As for personally I am changing my ways, to become a helathier, stronger me. I am changing eating habits and started to jog(which I am loving).

    Working at getting my four-year-old over walking pneumonia with lots of injections and pokes — it’s been a stressful week but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. After our appointments are done, I’m going to be working on getting my house cleaned!

    Hi Ali,
    I found a type drawer at Goodwill. A little smaller than the one you have…been having so much fun figuring out what to put in it…on it! Can’t wait to hang it up in our hall.
    Blessings to you and your family!

    I have been working on keeping this awesome balance of life, mother, student, employee, and wife. But it’s all worth it when I see my daughter ride her two wheeler for the first time (by herself) or when you snuggle up with a good book.

    Hi Ali – thanks always for the great giveaways. I am currently working on a zillion quilts for a fund raising project for Brodys service dog, have 3 done – 1 almost done and 1 left to quilt. Then back to a train quilt that has been in the works for a long time.
    Love getting back to it and it will be done this year!!
    Have a great day.

    I have recently gained a permanent scrap space in my house, so I have been spending lots of time creating pages around all of my very important but very random memories from the past year.

    Lisa Martin said…

    i’ve actually felt the mojo return for myself. Maybe it’s winter slowly disappearing, maybe it’s letting myself be creative-I’m not sure why it’s come back but it’s quiet welcome. come on in and have a seat, mojo. Meet Ali and baby and Simon while you’re here. I’ve made a mini from a package of Blue Moon/Full Moon Ale, I’ve made 12×12 pages with ONE picture. it’s very freeing!

    Lyn kearns said…

    I have way too many projects going at the same time, yikes! Always have a layout going on my desk, in the process of moving my scrapbook corner out of my master closet into another walk-in closet in the house, and moving my son’s room to another room in the house so I can have his walk-in closet.

    After getting my “new” scrap area together, I have been working on going thru my “stuff” & organizing everything. It’s been “spring cleaning” for my supplies. What a great way to find some buried treasures!

    Mandy said…

    I’ve been working on structuring the chaos that comes along with taking soooo many digital photo’s! I’ve gotten to the point where i’m overwhelmed by the amount of photo’s i take and the time it takes to transfer them to a safe place (or two LOL ;) , edit some, file them away (digitally), delete some (eh few), tag them, have them printed out to scrap etc etc. Filing the prints etc. Been very inspired by Stacy Julians Photo Freedom, which i am in the midst of now… Thanks for the chance to win a great give-away Ali!

    jkhenson said…

    I’ve been working on myself. I’m getting fit again, watching what I eat (giving up chips and alcohol), cutting back on coffee, and reading more for knowledge and fun. It’s making me feel more creative in other areas like scrapbooking, because my mind feels clearer, more focused. Thanks for the opportunity, and for the wonderful photos/smiles! :)

    I have been working on my dream to live the life I love!! Very exciting and very confusing at the same time. I have new words to make this happen “focus, disipline and strength”. They are hanging on a chain and I hold them in my hands everyday to remind me where I am headed. :) Dawn H

    I have been working on documenting more of my life, so that my kids can look at this and maybe see a different perspective of their MOM, and my passion for what is normal, and have their own passion for the everyday, and know how very fortunate and blessed we really are.

    My husband is always working on our 100 + year old home. I’m going to make an album showing his work, for his 4/16 birthday. I have the pictures printed & I’ve been saving up materials. I never do any scraping for him. I think he will really appreciate it!

    Hi Ali!
    With the changing of the season soon upon us, I have been cleaning my daughters’ closets to make room for the next bigger size. They are growing so fast that I cannot keep up!
    I just keep thinking to hurry up and finish so that I can get back to preserving memories.

    My husband had an old hunting album that was falling apart, from the 80s. So I put it into a new album – saving his dynamo labels from each page. Who knew – my hubby is a scrapbooker!
