Time for an update

I haven't posted for a while so I thought I would catch up on some things that have happened recently. First of all, I went to New York with my husband a couple of weeks ago. I never wanted to travel to New York because I was afraid to fly. I am proud to say that I have now conquered my fear of flying. New York was great and I hope to go back again when we have more time to see the sights.

Saturday was a Girl's Day Out for me, Kimi, and her Mom. We had such a good time visiting a scrapbook store in Winter Garden and having lunch at this quaint French bakery. The new scrapbook store is Scrap Paper Scissors ( This is a new venture for the owner and she is very enthusiastic about her new business. The store is small but she has a bunch of cool items (most things I haven't seen in any other store locally). I really encourage anyone in the area to stop by. It's important for all of us to support these small local businesses.

I also found out that I only need 3 MORE CLASSES in order to receive my AA degree. I was so excited when I found out. I never thought I would get to this point and I can finally see light at the end of the tunnel. I am taking all 3 classes that I need over the summer semester. It's going to be a lot of hard work but I think it will be worth it.

So since I have all of this work ahead of me with school, I have decided that I need to take a break and / or significantly cut back on scrapping. This was a hard decision for me to make but it's something that is ultimately going to be in my best interest. In order to help me stay focused, I have put away many of my scrapping supplies and have turned my "scrapping desk" into my "homework" area. I have been really sad most of the day because it is scrapping and crafting is something that I enjoy so much. Tomorrow is time for a new start...first day of classes. I am hoping that the next 3 months goes smoothly & I earn my degree.
