Ticks, Opinions & Awards

First off today: My computer was ticking. Luckily for me I knew what that sound was. The rythmic ticking of a hard drive preparing to die. I managed to get all my files moved over to the external storage drive. And then I ordered a new hard drive. With any luck it will be here in a few days, so I won't be offline for too long. Cross your fingers.

In other news: I need everyone's opinion. Remember I told you I came up with the design for Scrapbook covers. Well I made 7 of them to sell last week. I asked Sexy Papa what to price them at and he was no help. So now I am asking you. What should I Price these at? I have them listed on etsy for 24.99, because I felt like I would pay that for one of these.

p.s. I will be giving one of these away in Sept.





And lastly:
Thanks to Frannie over at Frannie Fires Back for the Honest Scrap Award. Am I to believe this? I have to tell 10 things about me that no one else knows? I am pretty much an open book. Then I have to pass it on to 10 other people?


As I am not much into handing out homework, I am going to skip the pass it on part. But I will give you my list of 10 Things you (may or) may not know about me.

1. I am addicted to coffee. There are a lot of things I can live without, coffee is not one of them. You wouldn't even want to be around me if I tried.

2. My middle name is Jacqueline. That is also the name of the only other girl that Sexy Papa loved.

3. I am addicted to fabric. I get crabby if I have to go to long without fabric shopping. Yeah I know, I am an addictive personality.

4. I am allergic to the sun. No seriously, I am. I wasn't always allergic, only for about the last 10 years. If I get direct exposure, I break out in hive that can last as long as a month.

5. I hate having water in my face. Washing it is one thing, but don't splash me in the face, or it is on like donkey kong!

6. I really wish I had a dishwasher. Our house was built in the 50's and it has not been added yet. I usually don't mind washing dishes by hand, but I am seriously wishing I had a dishwasher.

7. I have been known to leave clean clothes in the basket for upwards of a week.

8. I hate spiders, but don't mind snakes. In fact my roommate used to have a 12 foot boa, named Perry, and I rather liked him. But don't come at me with a spider.

Wow, OK, this is harder than I thought. So I am going to leave it at 8.

If you don't hear from me this week, it's because I don't have a puter. I will catch up with everyone, I promise. Until next time people, good day!


  1. I know that familiar ticking of a computer as well!! I think your price is good on the covers. I am not a scrappbooker yet, or I might buy one. I need to start, because I have a hopechest full of pictures in bags. It's 3 kids are all grown and they don't have any picture albums to come home and look at, I'm terrible!

  2. You're really talented with the whole scrapbook cover made out of material. I've actually never seen it here in South Africa before. Great idea, by the way.

    Don't worry about not packing clean clothes away. I think it's a sin every woman commits now and again ;)

  3. I don't have a dishwasher either and I desperately want one. That and a garbage disposal. They're fantastic!

  4. I don't know the slightest thing about scrapbooking or scrapbooking accessories! Sorry. But they are very pretty. If I knew what to do with one I would buy one.
    Oh, and I will pick up, play with, or pet just about anything on this earth, EXCEPT SPIDERS! Ewww.

  5. Congrats on your award. The covers are beautiful for the scrapbooks. Stopping by from the blog hop to say hello.
