Organize your Stuff: Week 22 (round 3): Dies Part 2

Alright! We have a confession to make… my name is Indigo Montoya, you kill-ed my father! Prepare to die! Woops, channeling The Princess Bride. Again. However, I must admit, that using my cuttlebug was not nearly as painful as we thought that it would be. In fact, the results were actually kind of neat! The POW is also kind of proud that we were actually able to scrap an event that actually happened just this Tuesday- Girl Friday’s Daisy Investiture Ceremony! (It is official…she is a Girl Scout!)
PA Me kept us away from that box all week, which was actually pretty easy with the three kids and their extracurricular activities. (At least that is what she kept telling me when the POW and Creative Me headed towards the box). Luckily, OCD Me finally got fed up yesterday morning…yes, it took until Thursday morning to open the box. OCD Me took out this contraption and read the directions (yes, we do read directions), only to find out that somehow during the one time that the cuttlebug (doesn’t it kind of sound like cuttlefish? Ewww slimy and tentacle-y….Stop it PA Me! Anyway…) was out of the box it did not get put back with all of its parts. Creative Me had two embossing folders, but only one of two “B” plastic plates.

So, off to lunch with Fabulous Spouse, who happens to work near a big box store that takes 40% off coupons, and then back home to… little guys out of school, homework, picking up Oldest Child from sports, taking Oldest Child across town for another school activity, almost making it home then getting called by Oldest Child to bring dinner (as the POW asked Oldest Child to get originally, but Oldest Child was convinced that there would be food), getting food and returning across town, and then repeating the process thirty minutes later! Finally, though, the layout is done! And Creative Me is proud of the result of using white core paper in the embossing folder!

Illusive Middle Child mini album update: Cover Complete! (and photos in place). Spoiler Alert: yes, they are all Halo Legos in battle with each other.  Yes, as a Mom, most of these pictures look exactly the same.  No, to Illusive Middle Child, they are unique and highly critical to the story telling process. End Spoiler. Now all that he and Creative Me need to do is use the Cricut for some titles and add some journaling, and not cause OCD Me to send him to his room! Then we will be ready to share the whole thing.


As for storage, we are afraid that is going to have to wait for Round 4.  OCD Me will just have to be happy with a neat space in its box.  This is because the scrap room was overrun today by the last vestiges from the old scrap room… which by the way, we are happy to report, is empty and ready for paint!  Thanks Fabulous Spouse and Girl Friday for the final hauling! (PA Me was able to stall, what, a year to get all of Creative Me and the Inner Hoarder’s stuff out of there! Not bad…for PA Me that is!)  Tuesday is Week 23: Templates...does anyone have these anymore?

Oh, I almost forgot! *Disclaimer: Infomercial time* We are almost half way done with our 2 Week International Blog Hop with Blog Candy for Tuesday Trio! Remember… these Blogs slice, dice, and even julienne…paper (you thought that we’d say fries, didn’t you!). Now, for a limited time, you can win some paper crafting goodness...picture last post!... for the low, low price of FREE! One lucky lady (or man…) who 1) is a follower (their rules not mine) and 2) leaves a comment answering the following question: do you have a die cut system (the POW says a Cricut counts) and do you use it (or are you like my Inner Hoarder who has one in the box but never uses it)? If you left a comment last post, here is your chance to be entered again! Remember, if you have an address and win, we will ship! If you have a guard animal…that is between you and your mailman!
