First of all, thank you for all the incredibly sweet comments on my last post. I really do have the best friends in the world. I took a little break from the designing yesterday afternoon to watch some football games over lunch and do some retail therapy. Someone spoiled me and hopefully if we get some photos this week I’ll actually be wearing something different in them for once. I think someone may have been getting tired of seeing the same 3 outfits on rotation. :) He walked out empty handed though so we may need to plan a little day trip here, maybe on the way to some therapy of this sort?? We’ll see. A road trip would be good. That’s what finally gave me the breakthrough on Maegan’s blog design so maybe it would help with a couple that I’m stuck on at the moment.
As promised, a little video of Pixel and her best bud Murphy. I hung out with them Friday night for a bit while Nikki was working. They’re really quite hilarious together as you can see…
Does that count for a Pixel update? Trying to check some things off that list a couple posts back. :)
And my to-do list for the week.
Havin’ a really hard time juggling everything lately so hopefully this will help. I’m finding when I let other priorities slip that my creativity seems to go downhill too so maybe keeping things balanced better will make me more productive in the blog design area. Right now I’m spending far too much time ‘stuck’ on designs and I really think it’s because I’m trying too hard. Now if I just need to step away from the laptop for a bit and refocus I’ll have this pretty list of things to remind me what else I need to be taking care of. :)
I know I’ve posted the template before but I tweaked it a bit while I was making this list so if you didn’t get a copy earlier or you’d like the new (hopefully improved) version you can download it here. I don’t claim to be a template designer and it would probably help if I used more templates for my own scrapping. In fact, if I did I could probably even add a little bit of scrapping for myself on that to-do list huh?! :)
Oh, and did anyone else watch the Sound of Music last night on tv? Well, if you missed it it’s on again tonight. I have the DVD but somehow there’s just something nostalgic about watching it when it’s on tv. It’s quite possibly my very favorite movie as you can maybe gather from my blog banner (which is WAY overdue for a rehaul). I put a little Sound of Music playlist on the blogpod for your listening enjoyment. :)
Kay, off to get ready for church. Then a full two days of blog designing with a little house cleaning thrown in here and there. Maybe a walk with Pixel. An episode of Big Brother tonight. Back to work on Tuesday, dinner at my favorite restaurant before they close for the season and ice cream at Charlie’s.
I’ll try and pop in here again before then with a couple more new blog links and that recipe I promised (if you can really call it that).
Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend so far.
