Dear Crafty Moms

Alright, so I'm in the middle of cleaning up the pigsty the kids call their play area...and I just had to put this question out there.  This to moms with kids that love to build and craft.  Like most people (i hope) I love a tidy and organized home.  It fails me 99.9% of the time and I'm ok with it.  OK with the mess that is our "lived in" home.  BUT what kills me is the stuff that my boys have built with lincoln logs, legos, recycled stuff ie their creations.  I love that they love to build and are being creative and all that entails BUT what the heck do we do with it after?  There's only so much room that can be dedicated to display their creations.  They fight tooth n nail not to get rid of them or to break them down.  What do you do with stuff your kids have built/created?  Do share...and please tell me I'm not the only one with this huge dilemma. :)

Quiet around here!

   It's been quiet on this blog and now it's quiet around my house, between the school hours only that is.  School is back in session and with that, I can now spend a little more time on the computer and less time playing entertainment director, referee and chauffeur ;)  Trying to get back into the swing of things is always tough but I'll get there very very soon.

   I thought I'd pop in today and throw out a small challenge...of the scrapbooking kind.  I haven't scrapped all summer and am itching to get some pages done. me your back to school layouts.  I know they just went back to school yesterday but I haven't scrapped the pics from last year nor the year before and with back to school on my mind...what better layout to put together?  Post a link to your layout or send it to my via e-mail.  I'll even throw in an incentive...a drawing for some goodies for all those who share.  One rule - it has to be a layout freshly done between Sept 1 - 15.
