My inner nerd is excited!

I've been thinking of upgrading our cell phones, since we're out of our last contract period. So, they offer some nice discounts to get you to sign another contract. Along the same lines, I decided I wanted to get a new MP3/iPod player, since my old player only holds about 20-25 songs. So this past weekend I was doing some browsing on the AT & T website, and I found a Sony Ericsson Walkman phone on the list. I bought one for me that's nice & girly. (It's metallic pink!) It arrived on Tuesday & I'm in love with it!!! :D I love the built in mp3 player and FM radio, plus it came with a USB cord so I can even transfer the pics from the phone's camera to my computer. (My last phone made me send them through e-mail for a charge.) And it has separate ringtones for different callers, which was something dh & I decided we wanted. I also love the fact that I can design my own wallpaper for the phone, which I've already done. (If I get a chance, I'll take a pic.)

It's just a fun little toy, and it's been keeping me off the computer a bit. But I'm still around some! :)

New quickpages up!

I've got my second Quickpage album available in the store now. This one fits the Cosmo Cricket "Jack" chipboard album, and uses the Plush Jazz Summer kit papers.

Fun with sigs!

Aside from regular old digiscrapping, I find it fun to make signature files for some of the online message boards I frequent. The one here is my latest one for DFW Area Moms, slightly modified here to remove my kids' names. It's inspired by a collage in the liner notes of Sam Phillips' latest cd, Don't Do Anything. As soon as I saw the collage inside, I knew I wanted to try to make something in that style. (It also reminds me of a scrap LO I've seen by Chris Ford in Digital Scrapbooking Magazine.) I'm in love with this look right now. :)

So many projects!!!

I always seem to find myself in two designing modes: on and off. LOL! Either I can't seem to come up with an idea to save my life, or I've got so many different things I want to do and not enough time to do it. Right now, I'm in the second phase; I've already uploaded a couple of new things in the past week, plus I have one other larger project in the semi-complete stage. And I'm working on another Quickpages album for the Jack Cosmo Cricket album. Plus I need to get my mini bonus kit for July finished. But my daughter's decided this was not a good time to get a full night's sleep, and I can't sit down and work with her around a lot of the time. (Sigh.) I really do need a "noneday", as Carolyn Leonhart would say!

Anyways, if you're a paper or digital scrapper and you haven't already checked out Digitals revamped hybrid section, I'd recommend it. We kicked off the selling of the Cosmo Cricket chipboard albums on Tuesday, and it's been going very well. I did do a set of "That Happy Feeling" Quickpages for the Kate album, and even though I threw it together as quick as I could so it would be done for launch day, I think it's still a nice album. It would probably make a good little gift for someone, too. My hope is to get the Jack album finished in the next week or two, plus one more Jack album.

Ok, sleep, toddler. Sleep! (sigh)
