See you soon!

Once he's done and the carpets are dry I'm going to move my scrap stuff over. I want to do it myself because I just don't think my SIL's get it and I know the men don't! LOL! Besides, it doesn't really fit very well in boxes and it's just going back in the cubes. If I pull out the drawers, I can carry the cubes one at a time quite easily. It's the bigger pieces that I'll need to wait for help with.
Andrew's taking Friday off to get started with the big stuff. One of our nephews (Hi, Kevin!) may be able to help him during the day.
Oh, and I have a monster cold. Just what I needed. I'm feeling much better today than I was yesterday. I'd actually accomplished more today by about 11:00 than I did all day yesterday!

These are matchbook style cards like the one I made for Andrew for Valentine's Day. (Yes, he did have a hard time opening it. And I laughed!) I used Bazzill cardstock for the card bases and some Bazzill scraps for the white, pink and aqua. I punched along the bottom of the white with a Martha Stewart punch. I finally used it!!!! The aqua flower is Prima, the pink is Heidi Swapp and the two green ones are Bazzill. I got the epoxy stickers at Jo's and they are the JoAnn's brand. The ribbon is just some random scraps I had. Feels good to use up scraps!
The card base is more white from my scrap drawer and the green was leftover from the above cards. The orange and the chipboard are DCWV, the rubon is American Crafts and the flower is Heidi Swapp. The little orange bling is from the Target Dollar Spot. I used a corner rounder on the bottom two corners of the card and the cardstock with the sentiment. And, I used my favorite border punch, Threading Water on the white. Oh, and it's really hard to see but I sanded the edges of the orange cardstock and made some faux stitches with my Signo Uniball pen on the green with the onesie on it to match the faux stitches on the rubon.
Well, that may be it for the crafty posts for a while. I'm going to be packing up my scrap stuff in the next day or so. If I get ambitious, I may photograph a few things that I've had done for a while. But, don't count on it! LOL!
Tomorrow, I've got a prenatal appointment and then I think my mom and I are going to head up I-5. I need to pick out a crib at Babies R Us and I may get a few things for Audrey while I'm there because Salem doesn't have a Babies R Us. We're also going to Scrapbook Attack. I've got quite a bit of credit left up there and I need to use it up. It expires when they have their next garage sale and the drive from Silverton is pretty long when your pregnant. :) Also, if I buy it tomorrow, I can pack it with the rest of my stuff.
Oh, and we are going to look for a twin mattress for Mickey. He's moving to a big boy bed when we move to Silverton! I'm hoping that the first night he'll be so tired from the excitement of the move that he'll stay in bed. Wishful thinking, I'm sure! LOL!

I bought this kit at Scrapbook Fever in Salem and finally got around to putting it together and ordering the pictures. Yep, I now have a wedding album! I used green paint instead of blue, of course, and it makes me so happy to see it.

We're renting a house from our friends Jackie and Eric. This is such a relief, I'm looking forward to a good night's sleep tonight!
Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day and I'll try to post more later!

Yep, I'm stressed.
Yep, I'm busy.
Scheduled two house viewings today and only made one as today was the day Mickey decided to puke for the first time in his life.
He's doing fine and is currently watching Dora, eating Saltines and drinking Pedialyte.
The sale of our home is going well and will close on February 28th.
This gives us two weeks and three days to get out.
Because of the above info I've pulled six ads off Craig's List for rental homes.
I really hate this up in the air stuff. I'm a planner and even though I can deviate really easily from the plan, I'm not good at just haring off without one.
I've decided that since I can't plan a lot of stuff that I need to, I'm going to plan something I want to. :D I'm going to CKC-Portland. Not taking any classes because I don't know for sure that I can go but I'm planning on going. I'll scrounge up some coupons for my local scrapbook stores and just pay for admission when I get there. Dad can watch Mickey on Friday and Andrew will be home Saturday. I'm going!
Phew! It feels good to plan something! :D

Because of this, and good old pregnancy hormones, I'm up at 3:00 am dinking around on the internet trying to get tired enough to sleep. Sigh, I'm going to be no fun for Mickey tomorrow.
On the bright side of things, the inspection on our home was today and it went well. Nothing major and only a few minor things. Which is pretty darn good considering the house was built in '55!

~I finished editing the pictures for Andrew's aunt and uncle's 50th Wedding Anniversary party.
