Yes this blog is alive. Barely... I had to check it for a pulse and I have some paddles on site, you know just in case. LOL
Ok so once again, running around like a crazy mad woman. But today YES TODAY... I am taking the time to post on this poor baby. Come hell or high water, I am making a dang post.
Let's start off with some sneaky peekies of the May Bad Girls Kit shall we!
Vintage is making a comeback at Bad Girls. Don't forget that we have our VIP kit reveal night coming up! THURSDAY, if you can believe that! At 9pm PST.
Which leads us to NATIONAL SCRAPBOOK DAY, May 2nd
9am PST-9pm PST
You totally want to be there to play with us.
Classes, challenges and some honk honk DRIVE BY GIVEAWAYS!
If you are wanting to scrap today and are kinda stuck for something to do...head on over to the Paper Trunk Blog! Danielle has just posted her challenge for today and it has to do with new beginnings. Plus there are 5 other challenges and ideas up on the blog as well!
And what the heck...while I am here....I am going to post some FAVES Dang it!
#1. Homemade smoothies- I have been making these religiously every day for the past 2 weeks or so. Incredibly easy, insanely tasty and noone ever complains about them LOL
Our favorite way:
either frozen strawberries or tropical fruit mix
1 cup of yoplait yogurt the orange strawberry surprise one is fabulous in smoothies
1 cup of strawberry orange banana juice
1 cup of milk
and a banana
Mix it up and you are good to go.
#2. Family Circle Magazine- Oft forgotten, every time I pick up one of these while waiting in line at the store, I am ALWAYS ALWAYS happy that I did. 1.99 is a small price to pay for some of the fabulous ideas, recipes, website links etc.. that they have in their magazine. I never thought I would ever like Family Circle LOL. Boy how times have changed.
#3. Babies babies everywhere-One of my besties Brandi had her beautiful little girl this week (same day as your bday Jeni!!!) and she is precious and a little angel baby. CONGRATS B!!!
#4. In Treatment on HBO- So glad this show is up and going again. I love Gabriel Byrne. Don't ask me why...I just do ever since Little Women LOL Incredibly smart show, as John was saying it is very cerebral...engaging characters and yes a bit depressing at times as well. But who doesnt love a good funk right?
#5 My Scrappy Fave of the Week- Actually SITTING DOWN AND SCRAPPING! Just the simple act of playing with papers and glue and getting messy this week. It feels like it has been so long since I have been able to do it. So I am grateful for the time spent with my supplies this week.
Which is where I am headed now..TO SCRAP!
Wish me luck and
AHHHHHHHHH!! it felt damn good to post a 5 Fave List today. Even if it is ummm Tuesday!
Paper Trunk has kick started its BLOG PARTY! There are so many things going on at the PT blog that it is hard to keep up! So you had better head on over there and check it out for yourself. I will be hosting a challenge on NSD May 2nd, so you can be on the look out for my challenge both here on Organized Chaos and over at the Paper Trunk blog. Check out the cool challenges they have up now and ummm did I mention PRIZES yet??? Yep, we have those too! A little birdie told me there is a $25 gift card to Scrapbook.com just for spreading the word on your blog or Facebook, twitter WHATEVER you can think of! So what are you waiting for?? Head on over already!
Apparently there is to be no happy medium for me in life LOL Either I am sitting around bored at home with nothing to do OR I have so many things to do I feel like a chicken sans head.
I have been obviously awful at 5 fave Fridays, but I HAVEN'T forgotten about them! I made a cute little 5 Faves Friday blinkie a while back but never got around to posting it on the blog.
This month I was asked to take a bigger role over at Webster's Pages and will be working with the always wonderful Terri Hayes :) AND was voted Booster Club President against my better judgment..But hey, someone has to do it right? So I have gone from having virtually nothing to do, to a buttload of things to do. Making the adjustment has not been so easy for me.
Lots of events going on scrapwise so let's start from the top, shall we!
Bad Girls and Hambly have teamed up for a fun giveaway! Make sure to stop by BOTH the HAMBLY BLOG and the BAD GIRLS BLOG and leave a comment at both. Allison will be drawing a name tomorrow for the winner of a free Butterfly Kisses April Main kit!
Also time to start talking National Scrapbook Day! Yep, it is right around the corner. On Saturday May 2nd at Bad Girls from 9am PST-9pm PST we will be hosting an all day crop with classes, challenges and of course some give aways. So make sure to stop on by and hang out!
Paper Trunk is going to be hosting a week long event starting April 22nd-May 2nd on our blog! The girls have been hard at working coming up with some fun challenges for you all. Check the blog in the next few days for more details.
and lastly but not least!
Webster's Pages is going to be hosting not one but 2 live chats (to help accommodate those overseas!) on April 28th at both 9am EST and 9pm EST at our inspireME site! We have some fun exciting things to talk about and hopefully we can get Brandin to share some sneak peeks of our new midrelease!!
Phewww!! ok so I think I am all caught up on the scrappy going ons.
Isn't it beautiful?!?! It is filled to the brim with the latest Sassafras Lass papers and their new embellishments Paper Whimsies. Throw in some puffy stickers and of course PRIMA for good measure and you have this months Main Kit!
