{ To Blog or not to Blog }

That is the question. Sorry for not bloggin' lately, but to be quite honest, I just have not had it in me. Now I have not decided to quit altogether, but be forwarned...I might not be around much. I still plan on the monthly Christmas challenges but as far as anything else? Well...It will just depend on my mood, I guess. I have been doing a lot of thinking lately and have just decided that too much time is being spent on this computer and not enough time on crafting, family and just me. I hope you all understand...but I think you do. :0)

With that being said...I will leave you for now with a few shots from our last camping trip...which was great by the way! We have our spot booked for next year already!

Oh and PS...did you check out my samples for this month challenge? I just added them to this post. I am quite happy with the way they turned out. :0)

{ Drum Roll Please }

I finally finished my own sample for my own challenge! I am so bad. But here they are...finally!!

These pics are not the best, but you get the idea. I am actually quite happy with the way they turned out! And I actually made them all on my own. By that I mean I didn't look to anyones blog for inspiration. I had the idea in my head for awhile and when with it. I think these are actually my first cards using my Nesties for an embossed one layer card. Thanks again to everyone who played along in July. Keep a look out for the next challenge. It might go up a few days early as we are heading out camping again on the 16th.

{ And the candy keeps rollin' }

Go check out Michelle's blog for some more yummy candy...especially for you Anya lovers!

{ In the mood for some candy? }

Just found a new blog to me and there is some yummy candy to be had. Go check out Anita over at The Hovey Hut. And be sure to stick around and check out all her wonderful creations...I am still checkin' them out as I post this now!

{ Enjoyin' the Summer }

Well...that was up until the storm the other night. Wow! That was probably one of the worst storms I have seen! Our poor trees, bushes, flowers and gazebo sure took a beating. Oh well...what can ya do? I am just thankful we were still not camping at the time of the storm...that would have been one scary night!! And now the weather is nasty...rainy and cold...actually cold enough in here to turn the furnace on!!!
Anyway...just thought I would show off a few pics from this last camping trip.

 pics of the lake...kept forgetting the camera everytime we headed down to the beach!!

{ Miss me? }

Sorry for not posting sooner. To be quite honest...I just have not been in a postin' mood, but then I totally forgot about the Christmas Card Challenge! Sorry folks. So here are all the wonderful creations...

and for our non-bloggin' players...first off is Karen

And last is Bonnie.

Thanks to everyone for playin' along this month...even if I still have not finished mine!!! I promise soon! Just not feelin' the Mojo lately. Anyway...the winner this month is...
