It's calmed down a little bit now at work. I did put my name in for a promotion yesterday, and I'm super nervous. I'm pretty sure I won't get it, but at least I tried.
Also, today I filmed and am currently uploading my first YouTube video. Look me up! (I'm Shawnlyn72 on YouTube)

The other day, I went into M’s when I was totally broke, and of course found a bunch of cute stuff. So, I promised myself that when payday came (which is the payday for the TON of overtime I worked the last couple weeks) I would splurge and get some of the cute things. So, here is my crafty bounty!
First, I went CRAZY in the dollar section (1stphoto)
Then, I found some cute and useful clearance (2nd photo).
The things not pictured are:
- Maggie Homes/Crate paper pad (I used a 40% off J’s coupon)
- 2 acrylic pencil boxes for the kiddies (for school – they can decorate)
- Sn@p letters – because I have wanted them ever since I saw them
- Some yellow patterned paper because I have very little in my stash that is yellow, and I’m trying to use more of that color
- A package of recollection back to school papers in 4 1/2x 6 ½ size to use for the calendars I make, and some Bazzill cardstock that coordinates
And that’s it!!!! I spent $62!!!! I got great deals, but I NEVER spend that much! I truly went wild (also the name of my blog)….which felt GREAT, actually since I woke up with really horrible cramps and a horrific migraine!

Today, Sunday, 7/21 is my first day off in 13 days. So I stayed up late last night, I made the 1st scrapbook page I had made in almost 2 weeks.
This morning I stayed in bed until almost 11, then went and grabbed lunch for me and the kiddos, and we are just relaxing. Maybe drive-in later, but that depends on the weather. I also have to get my daughter's Shutterfly album from Florida created.
So that's pretty much my day. Happy Sunday, all!

My birthday is tomorrow. I'll be 41. I really don't feel that old, and can't imagine it. Oh well. I'm off work, so me and the little man are going to try to do something fun.
We leave for Florida as soon as I get off work on Friday. Exciting, but lots to do. Really, we are going to pick up D who spent a week in Bradenton with scouts, and then a week with my parent's, who movedto North Ft. Myers last year. I hven't seen their house yet, so i'm excited about that.
I also finally finished my bachelor's degree in May, and am trying to figure out where to finish. The good news is that I am feeling so super creative lately. I have 6 months of calendar pages completely done already, and have completed almost 100 scrapbook pages/projects/cards just since I got out of school.....I have scrapped more in thepast 2 months that I had in the past 2 years. It makes me feel so, well.........me.
