Home Again...

"Home again, home again, jiggity-jig". Thats what I used to say to my boys when they were little whenever we would pull into the driveway. Anyway, I'm home. Back from my vacation in Ct. Logan and I had a GREAT time! I always do when I'm with my sister Judy. It was such a relaxing visit. Every night we put on some music and worked on a puzzle, or cozy up in Judy's bed to watch a movie.  It was so nice to share this trip with Logan too. I took him to the 'old' neighborhood where I grew up which was very cool for me, even if he wasn't that impressed. LOL I think its important to know your family's history and growing up in Naugatuck Ct is a big part of my history.

One huge highlight for us though was our trip into NYC. As you all know, I have been there before but this was a first for Logan. Actually, we took him when he was about 4....obviously he didn't remember much of that visit. Judy was very generously able to get tickets to 'Spiderman: Turn off the Dark' on Broadway!! OMG!! It was amazing! All of the stunts, the music...incredible! Logan loved it too! We also went to the American Museum of Natural History and toured a lot of Central Park. Words can't express what a great time we had, and all the fantastic sights we were lucky enough to see. I'll post a couple pics.

Now that I'm home, and my parents are all moved into their condo, I've got more time on my hands. I've put that time to good use and finished my Shabby Chic paperbag mini!. I'm so excited about it! It came out beautifully...just as I hoped it would! I'll be posting a video soon. I'm going to put pics of the special ladies in my life in it. Like my mom, my sister, my cousin, my step-daughters...etc. It is such a femine album, perfect for girl pics. No boys allowed! LOL

Also while I was in Ct I did some scrapbook shopping (of course!) at the Stamping Station. It is a great Scrapbook store. I finally found the Tim Holtz tag die! Yup, I bought it! Along with Graphic45's Curtain Call 8x8 paper pack. I'm so excited about that! I'm hoping to do a haul video to show what other treasures I picked up.

Thats it for scraproom is calling. Its a mess as it always is when I complete a project. Time to clean it up, maybe reorganize a little and then onto my next project! Happy Scrapping! :)
