Chloe's Junior High School received the only "Superior" rating for the Fall ABODA Orchestra Festival this year.  Maybe she will stay with the violin now and not give it up next year like she has been talking about.  Crossing my fingers!

We are Done!

I love it!  Let me know what you think please.  Today is Tuesday.  Chloe comes home Friday!  I can't wait!  It just might be worth the drive home the the Westin Kierland to see her expressions when she sees her new room.  Oh course I threw out piles of things that she has "collected"   My little scavanger!  Look at it now...It will never look like this again!   LOL.....


We are making progress. I am loving it!  Of course, Phil got a lot of help from Millie

It is Day 2 Of Chloe's Room Remodel

I am giddy from the paint fumes that are wafting through the house....It is so hard to pick colors from a tiny chip so I bought some samples and painted them on the wall.  Still I had doubts but....today after seeing the room all painted it looks so "teen" I love it.  I hope Chloe loves it.  Still waiting to hear from Megan her BFF!  Her closet has never been repainted in the 12 years we have lived here so I decided to do that also in white semi glass so I can wipe it down when it gets marked up LOL....

Chloe's Room Make Over

Okay Chloe headed off to church camp at 7:30 this morning and I came home and started tearing her room apart.  We are going to surprise her with a total room make over....new paint and all new furniture.  Since they do not allow phones nor electronics at Church Camp  (so they get closer to their God) she will not know anything about it until the moment she opens her door when she gets home.  SURPRISE!!!!  Also good because none of her friends athat I also have on my Facebook can tell her!  LOL... I am going to have her best Friend Megan be my "teen advisor"  Let the fun begin!

And now after the tear down!  The painters come tomorrow and her new furniture on Tuesday or late Monday.  The walls are going to be a light grey and the ceiling a dark grey.  Her new furniture will be dark cherry.  Just right for our young teen lady.

Mille Update Pictures

Millie came home a month ago and we are having so much fun with her. Here are updated pictures of Millie taken between June 5th and June 11th.

Millie Our New Puppy

We bought a new puppy.  Her name is bigger then she is "Waldreps Marvellous Miss Millie.  Millie is what we call her.  Miss Mille when she is a bad little girl....(rarely!)  As fate would have it we fell in love with her immediatley and the fate part is...she was born the moring that Lucy died.  I guess it was meant to be.  No she is not a Guniea Pig.   She is a  Pembroke Welsh Corgi.

Blog Candy

My friend and an awesome Copic instructor is also the one who got me to love doing my own finger nails and to give up nail appointements for life!  She introduced me to the Konad Nail Art  System sold at OC Nails.  Check out Dainielle's blog at http://fundamentalchange.blogspot.com/ and see the free blog candy she is giving away.  Here are pics of some of the blog candy gifts
I think she mentioned a couple of more goodies so make sure you read her blog post.!

Spring Is Here

 I have a couple of cards to share with you, made with the adorable Magnolia Tilda Stamps.  You can find these stamps at our store http://www.shop.scrapologyaz.com/.   The first card is the one I am entering in the Magnolia-licious Easter-Spring Extravaganza Contest. I just love her barfeet.

Copics:  E000, E00, E53, E25, E49, E59, G07, G09, G19, B21, B24, B29, Y0000, Y000,Y04, Y08, RV10, RV11, RV14  I used Spellbinders Label Four for my Die cut.

I has been beautiful in Arizona the past couple of weeks.  The temps have been in the high 70's and even hit the high 80's and one day in the 90's already.  Now, yesterday we had a storm come in and dump rain on us most of the day and evening and the temps dropped into the mid 60's.  What the heck is that all about.  Oh we got to love the cool weather and rain while we can.  It will soon be HOT HOT HOT and DRY and we will be thinking about these couple of cool days we had in March.

I am sharing a 20 x 20 garden with my neighbor at Agritopia.  It has been a lot of fun planning and getting it set up.  I think I will post a layout I did of the Garden too.

It's February

Wow February is coming in like a Lion weather wise.  It is suppose to be 29 degrees tonight and cold for the next few days. So far my tomatoes have made it but tonight will be a challenge.  It is still considered balmy compared to what is happening in the rest of the Country!

Over at our store www.scrapologyaz.com, we have been pre ordering lots of the new items coming out in the next month as soon as everyone recovers from CHA!  I can not wait to see some of the new things we have ordered coming into the store.  Look for new Spellbinders both the regular size and the big ones for the Grand Caliber.  The Spellbinders Grand Caliber has been flying off our shelves.  I love that you can use a full 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of card stock without cutting it down.  SWEET!  It still cuts the regular size dies.  Make sure you check it out. I love it's pretty color of Cherry Red.  Here are some of the products we have or are going to receive in the next couple of weeks in our store.

And finally here is a new Valentines Card of Course it is a Magnolia Tilda, and colored with Copics.

  Copics, oh I forgot to tell you.  They have come out with 12 new colors and here they are.

Check our store because our Copics are arriving by the dozens.  We are loading them up as quickly as we can!   Stay Warm.  I hope all my East Coast friends are safe and warm.  Hugs!
