Seeing Clearly

Well I finally took pictures of the clear cards I made. The blue one is the one I used for the make and take and the other is for my MIL. I hope you like them.

I've spent the last few days getting out wireless network to work. After spending at least 3 hours on the phone with 2 different Verizon guys and buying a new wireless router at the recommendation of the first guy they finally sent a tech out. Seems they had upgraded their equipment and the first guy I spoke to got it all wrong. I brought the router back to Comp USA and held my ground until they agreed to reimburse me the whole amount and not just the cost less a 15% restocking fee.

I hope to get some more scrapping done tomorrow, I've got quite a few projects underway and it would be nice to finishe some of them! I have a bout 20 pages to do on my soon to be born nephew's 12x12 book, a class with the little mailbox I showed you a few weeks ago to get scheduled and the final kit count done, my MIL's recipe scrapbook to work on and a photography album that I've started and want to work on. In addition I've also got to finish the class project for one of the LSS and put another together for the other LSS. In addition I have a business expo early May that I have a booth at and then I'll be getting ready for CKC Fort Lauderdale where I hope to introduce the new TLC line as well as some of the other items I plan on selling there. Somehow, I have a feeling I'm going to be rather busy!

Anyhow, I hope you're all having a great weekend and scrapping your hearts out!

A New Sense of Freedom

Well the taxes are done, the ones for 2007, the sales taxes for January till March for Florida and I've answered the IRS's questions on the 2006 questions. I feel so much better to have all of it out of my hair! Yippee! Life has not been all that easier, my computer is hiccupping, took 2 hours of playing with it to get to boot up the other day and yesterday our wireless router, courtesy of our ISP went on the fritz, but I'm still happy the taxes are done~!

It allows me to get back to talking papercrafts and particularly scrapbooking! So first, let me share a tag I made for the RCS tag swap. I'm going to warn my buddies not to come and look if they want to keep the surprise till they receive them in the mail. But I really wanted to share. We had to make them all identical and we had a choice of themes either summer or vacation. Until I added the little saying on the tiny piece of paper, I think it could have been either. But once it was added, it became more vacation since it says "Having a Great Time".

I also was at a crop this weekend where I vendored and did a make and take. The project I chose was a clear card so that I could show people some of the techniques to use when working with a clear/acylic album. We had a great time. I've included a picture of what my booth looked like. Click on it for a bigger view.
