I’m a loser!

Really I am!!!  It has been forever since I blogged last, my photo a day project has gone totally to crap, and I’m so mad at myself because I was doing really good for a second lol.  April basically sucked… lots of deadlines, FPD had a ton of things going on, then NSD came and went, now it’s catalog time.  I have been working up the courage to post a video blog, actually had 2 ready to go in the past couple of weeks, but TOTALLY chickened out haha.  I’m pretty much a dork in real life, but seriously, looking at myself on camera is just plain ole bad news.  Wow… they were bad lol!  Makes me wonder if I really come off like that day to day with people!   Total loser!

Anyways, maybe one day I will pick myself up by the boot straps and OWN my dorkiness… at the moment… not so much though:)  It’s such a shame though… because I blog so sporadic, I always feel like I have to cram a bunch of stuff in in 1 post, hence it taking FOREVER to do 1 flippin post.  I figured that if I did a video one, I could take a couple of minutes sharing my pointless nonsense, upload and DONE!  I blame all of this anxiety and the need for a video on Donna (and yes I call her by her first name because I like to pretend I know her lol) I noticed she started doing video’s and well, I just lurve her:)  One day when I grow up I wanna be like her.  Love her style, love her work, love what she stands for…

OK, I’m actually going to keep this post short and sweet (2 completely pointless paragraphs later right)!

I got some of my stuff from Prima last week…. how flippin weird is it to see my own stuff in the flesh, in packaging…. I don’t think I will ever get over that loL!  So surreal and exciting!!!  Can’t wait to get more stuff to give out!  Here are a couple of previews:





Alrighty, last thing!  I HAVE to post these pictures of Makena’s "new" room.  I really feel like my Joey is the bestest husband in the world.  He has been wanting to tackle a home "project" for awhile now and i kept holding him back because I was scared he’d hurt himself or the house or BOTH!  But I gave in when he convinced me that we should redo Makena’s room… frankly it’s LONG overdue to get this kid outta our room and sleeping on her own lol!  You do what works for you as parents and I enjoy my sleeptime, so we coslept:)  So after like 2 weeks of furniture shopping, a trip to Home Depot for paint and Joe "supplies", a trip to Target for bedding, a lamp, and a rug… this is what the outcome was:




Definately not done yet, I have to add all of the cute personal touches and accessories, but you get the picture!  Anyways, back to Joe… he was SOOO cute when fixing up the room.  He went non stop for like 3 days getting everything perfect.  Joe was so proud of his accomplishment, he wanted me to put the pictures on his phone so that he could show them off to his buds lol…. and he says I’m a dork huh?Putting up the molding and chair rail is kind of his first "big" thing to take on in the house.  As far as handiness goes, he did A-ok:)  Our last house I did all that work, laid the tile, etc.  Handy gal here dontcha think:)  Anyways, so the room is almost done and before he ruined it by putting a stupid TV in it, I had to grab the camera.  When I went to take these pictures… he even got the closet all cute with the baskets… and get this…. see the little dolls and stuff animals in the last picture?  Joe put those in their like that:)  He had them kinda hanging out a bit more, but I went and messed with it and couldn’t get them the same lol!  He’s such a sweetie:)

Alright kiddos… I’m outtro!  I will be back with the posts I drew sometime this weekend!!! Maybe by then I will have gotten over my awkwardness and done a video that I am not totally embarrassed by… prolly not though:)

I love that pink room, and her name on the wall. I’ll never see a pink room in my house, as I’ve got 4 boys, so I’m a little bit jealous :)

Makena’s room RAWKS!!!!! I wish I had a room like that when I was a little girl (oh so many years ago LOL!)
I love your Prima stuff, Corina. I keep looking for it at the LSS, but alas, they don’t have it. It would be sweet if I could win it from the woman herself :)

Alisa - May 7, 2008 - 6:13 pm

I just bought a big 12×12 stack of Corina (your) papers, that must sound very cool:), and a few embellies. Getting more goodies to go along my recent purchases would be wonderful. Also, your daughters room is adorable. Kudos to the hubby.

Debby - May 7, 2008 - 6:18 pm

I love the color and the combo of different colors that you complimented the room with. I love that shade of pink. Beautiful.

KateB - May 7, 2008 - 6:21 pm

I’m going to a friends house tomorrow to organize her daughters (4 of them in one large room) space-I wish we had the money to make it turn out as darling as yours but I’m thinking that won’t happen! Love the pink! My own daughters room is very girly too.

Love Makena’s new room, your hubby did a FABULOUS job, what a sweet dad and husband! Speaking of Prima…I was at one of girlfriend’s house who does traditional scrapbooking and has an online store and she was showing me all these “cool Prima kits” she just got in and I’m like “OMG, that’s Corina’s stuff!” after awhile, I had to finally confess that I really didn’t “know know” you like in real life or anything or that you even knew of my existence lol…but it WAS cool to see creative works I’ve admire and bought “digitally” come to life! Just thought I would share! Have a great day until the next post! lol
