in the new issue of Jot magazine!
It's been a while since I submitted anything for publication, or even scrapbooked! But when I saw the call for projects for issue 8, I decided to give it a try.
Jot is an on-line scrapbook magazine, so it was as simple as sending an email and a picture of my scrapbook layout. I had actually tried for the gold foil call, but she felt my page would fit better with the Christmas story gallery. I agree!
You can find my layout on page 75 in the magazine *Here*!
It was definitely something to get excited about scrapbook wise. :)
The scrapbook purge is still going on here.
That green and pink paper storage box is now empty. I am trying to fit all of the patterned paper I want to keep in that two door cabinet behind the boxes. Although it's not just patterned paper in there...
This on the other hand is my staging area of product that I am organizing for a few giveaway boxes. I've temporarily taken over a corner of Erin's room but she is ok with it. She is actually hoping some of the items come her way. I will just say that I have given her a lot already! She has her own small stash of scrap supplies now, and really not a lot of room for more :)
That stack in the back right corner in front of the Frozen bag is going to be saved for functions where I teach such as an upcoming Girl Scout activity in the Spring.
I just need to sort through those three baskets on the left and then start separating things into three boxes. I hope to have the giveaway Friday, so be looking for that!
Making progress though, and feeling a lot better about scrapbooking again! :)
As for the Thanksgiving holiday, it was nice.
Unfortunately, Mike had to go back out of town for work the day after Thanksgiving. :(
Not fun! But his brother and wife were in town and it's the first time we have seen them in two years. So we were able to still have a good weekend despite not having Mike with us.
The kids and I did a little bit of shopping on Saturday in the afternoon, but then took it easy the rest of the night.
It was pretty warm yesterday. Near 70 degrees. Then this morning, we woke up to this...
Thanksgiving is over, December is here and so is winter as far as I'm concerned! :)
Hope you had a great weekend!
