WOW, I just can't believe it has been so long since I posted. I have checked in, but never posted. :(
Hopefully in the next few weeks, I will have new things posted for eBay maybe even Etsy. Fingers crossed xx.
While I have been away, I have had some health issues and new meds I started taking. They totally zapped my energy, so not much crafty-ness going on here. I have sooo missed it. I just got back from a Thanksgiving lunch with Lacie at school today. She wasn't crazy about the dinner, however, I thought it was pretty good. Sure don't remember my school lunches tasting that good.
I have a few things ending tonight on ebay. Just a few single 12 x 12 pages. You can find me on ebay by searching for: mysweetpaperdreams. I am a Proud member of the BTDL design team. Type BTDL in your search on ebay to see all of the amazing work from this super talented team.
now.. let me see if I can remember how to post a picture..
I listed two double page layouts last night on eBay. One for a girl, and one for a boy. They are basically the same pages, just switched the colors to make them different. I am trying out some patterns that I bought from TREASURE BOX DESIGNS. She has the cutest patterns! Love them. :) Anyway.. this is the girl set. What do you think?
Well, after having went through six visits to Best Buy store with my Dell laptop and 3 or 4 calls to the 1888 number. I finally have a replacement for my computer.
It was still doing the same things it had done since October. Not only did it do it at my house, but 4 of the computer guys in the store also saw it acting wacky. The strange thing is, whenever it went to the repair center in Atlanta, it never acted up there... yeah... right.. Finally last Monday the Dell came back from the repair center again and when they told me it had nothing repaired on it, I had to refuse to take it back. After talking to a different manager this time who read all the notes, spoke with the agents in the store, she honored my request for a new laptop.
Here is what I learned from this , so please use this as reference... ALWAYS make sure when you send an item off for repair under warranty, make sure they write EVERYTHING you tell them it is doing. Make sure you keep track of names, dates and anything that could help you in the future.
If you can , get the person you are giving your item to, to verify what you see is wrong. That was what helped me get my replacement computer. I am happy with the outcome of this even though it should not have went on this long. Also.. when you buy a warranty, make sure you understand it very clearly. Never ASSume anything!
Well, first let me say how disappointed I am with BEST BUY. ..... AGAIN.
My laptop is STILL not repaired for the issues it has had since October of last year. I can't seem to get anywhere with this store. I can't believe I am going through all of this. I have spent TONS and TONS of money in there over the years. I finally called the customer service number on Monday night after picking up my Dell laptop again. They assured me it was fixed. I came home, got Lacie settled in bed and logged onto my scrap groups on eBay. Lo and behold, as I was typing, my cursor was still going all over the place. I was literally speechless... for a few minutes.
I am going to call them back again today when things settle down. We are going to a birthday party this afternoon for one of Lacie's preschool friends.
I should have posted before now, but it really is a challenge to fix all of the errors as I am typing. I should video tape this and post it for THE GEEK SQUAD...
Anywho here is a simple one page layout I did this week. I am working on a new paper bag album and I can't wait to get back on it tonight.
Well, I was getting ready to post a picture of my latest album, but I guess it will have to wait until tomorrow.
What a day this has been!! WHEW! glad it is over and I am heading to bed.
I had to take my laptop back to Best Buy AGAIN for the same thing on Thursday. It was a unplanned trip back so I had no time to prepare myself for the two weeks it will be gone AGAIN... I am a little frustrated about the whole thing because this was the THIRD time I took it back for the same thing.
So now I am having to use SLOW MOE the desk top. It is so slow, it is unreal!!! I shouldn't complain, but I am spoiled to my fast laptop. LOL!
I listed my album last night on eBay and I thought my computer would be ready today (because they said it would be ready) but I got a call around 12:30 today saying they are shipping it off and it will be gone for two weeks. :(
I will get my picture up here sometime tomorrow so you all can see it. I have already shut down MOE for the night and I am using DH's laptop . All of my pictures are on MOE of my album.
I hope everyone had a great GOOD Friday and wishing everyone a blessed Easter weekend.
We are heading out for a quick trip to IKEA in the morning for a large stuffed shark for Lacie. Her friend Peyton has one and she has been wanting one so bad... My mom and sister are getting this for her and she is super excited.!!
Have a great night all, I want to post the picture tomorrow (well, later today) but if you really can't wait to see it, just search BTDL on eBay . It is the VINTAGE SHABBY album.
I just listed this mini acrylic Twilight inspired album. I love how it turned out. I like that it is a perfect size to set out on a desk or dresser. It measures 4 x 4 inches, has 12 pages including the front and back covers.
I really hope to have more listings ready for next week. This week I was pretty busy with Lacie's new room. We painted it and put new border and curtains up in her room.
I painted a wood shelf for her wall and also did an altered 12 x 12 canvas with her pictures on it.
I still need to get a few more pictures and accessories to finish things off. She loves her room!! LOL!
I am so THRILLED to have my laptop back!! Thanks GEEK SQUAD. :) I hope it is fixed this time. Fingers Crossed XX.
So here is my latest creation I listed up for sale on eBay. I just finished a custom wedding purse album with this same paper. I think this paper is so elegant. I created my very first purse album with this same paper.
I am dog tired tonight. We painted Lacie's room today and will finish up with the border tomorrow and then set up her new valances and sheers. She is getting to be a big girl now, she asked to change her room so we did. My mom and sister bought her new bedding and some other things for her room.
I just can't get over how much it costs these days to redo a room. I hope to be able to redo our den this spring. I am so in love with blue and brown together.
Anyways.. I hope everyone is doing great. I am hopefully going to get up another album this week so be on the look out for it..
I was so excited this week to see my local Michael's had just got in some new papers and embellishments from K & Co. (My favorite paper line) YUM!
This album was created with their new paper and embellishments, plus Prima flowers and hand crocheted flowers by Sandy Vint from the BTDL design team. Her flowers are so amazing! I love using them in my albums.
I actually bought some yarn to teach myself how to make some for myself, but I haven't found enough time to sit and watch a video to do it.
We had more SNOW on Friday. I couldn't believe how long it snowed. It was a powdery snow, not good enough to make a snowman with. Lacie still enjoyed playing in it. Within a few hours on Saturday morning, it was gone in our front yard. I was shocked it melted so fast!!
Anyway, we are SUPPOSED to get more tomorrow....hmmm.. I just don't know I can see that happening again. It is odd we get three snow falls in a year here.
I hope these three pictures all show up, if not, I will add them in just a bit. I listed a chipboard album last night and a two page layout, plus a simple set of cards.
We were quite busy yesterday, Lacie went to a birthday party for two of her classmates, the twins, at Monkey Joes. Once she loosened up, she had a blast. Then we met went out for a dinner at Logans with Rick and it was late when got home, so I rushed to get these pictures up and the listing on eBay. It was late when I finally got all three revised and posted, but I did it!!
I will check back and see if this posts correctly....
I can't believe we FINALLY got a small amount of SNOW on Friday. That just doesn't happen much here in Gastonia.
This Friday we went to the Ringling Brother's Circus in Charlotte. We met Lacie's preschool class there and we had a wonderful time. I was utterly AMAZED she sat through the show. I am so happy she is starting to do well on her ADD medicine. It was nice to see her be able to sit through something.
The other big news was our snow!! It started Friday afternoon, and we got some sleet mixed in with it. bUt Lacie and Rick still went our yesterday morning to play for a bit. She didn't like the sleet blowing in her face so after about 15 minutes, she ASKED to come in. And of course I had hot chocolate waiting for her. :)
I listed two set's of pages on Thursday night, but I had to get to bed early since we were were going to the early show, so I didn't get to post these new listings here.
I will be back in just a bit to post the pages, it is time to get Lacie wind down for bedtime, be back later...
Well, it's Thursday night and I just got these two listings up on eBay. The first one is a set of premade pages that would be super cute for Valentines Day. I love the papers I used on this set. I have had them awhile just sitting here waiting for me to decide what to do with them. I feel good that I finally used something I have had for sometime! :)
Oh if I only had a dollar for every sheet of paper I have here in my scrap studio! ... LOL!
Anyway.. I also listed this chipboard album tonight. It is so cute, and I love this paper to!! It is by Daisy Bucket .
I really thought I would get more listings up this week, but I am really tired and I have had to crash a few evenings this week. I decided I would listen to my body and give it a break.
The weather here has been really crazy this week. Yesterday it was in the 60's, and today it was back in the 30's with REALLY cold rain ALL DAY long.
So that's all for tonight. I surely hope to get more done by next Thursday. FINGERS CROSSED XX. :)
Thanks for stopping by tonight. I listed this Designer Purse Album (TM) Thursday night on eBay. I really fell in love with this paper when I saw it. I love pink and black together, so it screamed at me when I saw it.
I am finally better from the sinus infection I had for a few weeks. It was one of the worst ones I have had. Now that I am feeling better, I hope to get more listings up next week. I have some really cute paper I want to use for a few Valentines Day layouts and possibly a few albums.
The one album I am wanting to get done is just a vision in my head, it will be a vintage, shabby type album. I am gathering the goodies and trinkets to get it done.
I am calling it a night, hope you enjoy the new album.
Good evening all! I just listed these single 12 x 12 layouts tonight on eBay. I am still under the weather so i didn't get as much done as I wanted this week. I have been seeing Valentines Day pretties EVERYWHERE!! That got me in the mood for these two pages.
I also bought this STUNNING paper made by PRIMA at one of the craft stores I shop at. I bought the only two sheets they had. LOL! One for me to make Miss Lacie a pretty page for her scrapbook and one to sell for someone who like the paper also.
I had to take the pictures inside tonight, we are "SUPPOSED" to get some flurries this evening, but nothing yet. No big surprise there, we RARELY get a snowflake here, let alone enough to play in. I love to watch the snow fall , it is so peaceful.... and have you ever "LISTENED" to it fall ? what a wonder!
Well, thank you for stopping by to see what is new with me. I am heading to my couch to unwind before bed time.
I am a SAHM to a very special little girl. I started scrapping back in late 2005.
I started selling on eBay back in April 2007. I love to make layouts, paper bag albums, Designer Purse Albums, altered items or whatever comes to mind.
