Labor Day Weekend Giveaway!


Keep on those scrappin' goals!



It's a big weekend--an extra long one for many people! That means relaxing, vacationing, taking more pics, and FUN! For some of us it also means getting the yard work in shape, clearing out a bin or two in the garage or workroom or having a garage sale! Whatever your plans are for the weekend, enjoy the process!

You could win a prize package!!!

ScrappersChallenge (meaning me) is giving away a prize this weekend! Some of it (stamps) are thanks to other generous Challengers and some of it (fibers) are from my friend Sue P. The rest is from me, yours truly. We want YOU to leave a comment here below about what you are up to this weekend --and how you plan to tackle all the remaining 2010 items on your scrapping TO DO list??? Also, why not subscribe to the Feed from this blog (in the column to the upper right) so you follow the posts? Then, you won't miss anything new!

What am I up to this weekend? Yard work, getting some of my stuff ready for a scrapbooking garage sale, and working on finishing a travel album about Germany for my DD. I also made a LONG honey-do list for hubby. After all, this week is our 31st anniversary --and he asked! Sometimes the best gift is peace of mind and just getting things DONE that are on your list!

Happy Labor Day Weekend! Be safe, have fun, and be productive too! :)

Happy Anniversary, Rock! Sounds like you (and dh) will be busy this weekend. I'm working double shifts 3 out of the 4 days, so I won't be getting much done! However, vacation is only a few weeks away and I have plans to work on a few mini albums then! Have a great holiday weekend!

LF said...

I hope to get some house cleaning done this weekend. Yet, still find time to relax. :)

Mary said...

Wow! I have lots of labor i would love to do, but think I am going to take this last summer weekend to just relax. And Happy Anniversary to you and hub.

Denise said...

I wish I could go to your garage sale! My husband's working all weekend, so nothing big planned. Both kids are sick. I'm hoping to take the kids to get some school clothes.

I'm in a group where our goal for Sept is a layout a day. There is also a weekend online crop this weekend. Between the two, I'm hoping to get a lot done today and get closer to my yearly scrapbooking goal.

Glenna said...

Happy Anniversary Rock! Hope you and hubby are also planning to do something outside the house as well.

Housework and Scrapping are on the schedule.

We will be having a group of High School kids from our church on Sunday afternoon.

Monday will be our doing nothing but relax day! So that means more SCRAPPING and organizing.

Have a wonderful weekend Rock, no matter what you and hubby do!
Happy Anniversary again!

Happy Anniversary Rock!!
I have a lot I need to get done this weekend. I have a few more school supplies to get for my daughter before school starts next week. We also have our block party this weekend, and so I need to get my house in order also. I have a couple of layouts I'd really like to get done, but don't know if I'll have time for them.

Attegirl said...

I've been working today on my UM stamps, read about putting a layer of zig adhesive on the back... it's working great and I will be saving alot of space since I am also converting my old wood stamps too!
Thanks for all your inspirations!

Patti said...

Hope you have a great anniversary this weekend Rock! My daughter is in a contest tonight, and if she wins she gets to ride in the Labor Day parade on Sunday. I also work Saturday and Monday at my part time job, and might get to go visit an old friend who is in Illinois visiting from Michigan. If that happens, I get to meet her new baby girl for the first time! If I have time in between, I plan to work more on getting my scraproom organized and clean!

Happy Anniversary

As everyone around here has been traveling so much, I am looking forward to a nice, quiet weekend, or at least one where we don't travel too far.

If time, plans are to finish some cleaning of the basement (down to a 6'x6' area where everything no one knows what to do with has been located) Finish sorting through books while moving to new bookshelves. Animals to sort, freezer meals to make, school plans to finish, door to repair, scrapping to do (pics come today, I hope), and whatever else fits into our schedule. Oh yes - can't forget the trip to goodwill to drop off all the items we are removing from the house.

Denise L. said...

Happy Anniversary!! (Must be the month to get married, mine is the 24th)... I have been working on putting together page kits for a couple upcoming retreats. I am going to try your idea to work with embellishments first then paper, sometimes it just gets a little overwhelming and it shouldn't scrapbooking should be FUN!! My goal is to get more of my supplies organized and projects completed. Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe weekend.

roserae said...

I am planning on getting several of my class kits finished from last year. I also want to do some organizing that is long overdue. Have fun this weekend!!

Muffin said...

Happy Anniversary. My plans for the long weekend are to reorganize my entire scrap room due to moving. It stinks to start all over again, but I am excited to go through all of my things. It will give me a chance to get rid of extras and see what I need to stock up on. Happy Weekend to everyone!

Traci said...

My weekend holds many tasks. I'm doing the final prep to lay new wood floor thruought my home, I need to make a "memory" book for my mom & Step dad's 40th anni that my sis and I are throwing them at the Queen Mary(sshhh surprize)next weekend. I must find time to swim, and to hopefully top off the all too short weekend, I need to get curriculum all set for homeschooling my 4 kids (we've started already..but needs to be organized). I love to be busy, but I love to complete my tasks even more. I'll have a great weekend, I hope you all do too

Will be taking photos of pages and uploading to blog finally !

Sunny Joan in WI said...

I will be vacationing all weekend, but I'm going to use some of the time to reevaluate my goals, projects etc. I just got a great new planner that I can take with me anywhere because it's small and compact, but is ringed so I can move pages around. In addition, I already have 2 weekend get-aways planned to work at getting my daughter's school album done by next spring! Joan

Linda said...

Happiest of Anniversaries Rock! We're putting our garden and flowers to bed this weekend. We've hit a very cold spell of 45 at nite and it seems Jack Frost is right around the corner. But in the evenings I'm finishing my Christmas 12x12 calendars I give out every year! Nice to have them done early. Have a great weekend! Hugs!

txscrapbooks said...

Happy Anniversary. What am I doing this weekend? Craft Space reorg, sorting and purging all through the house, general cleaning since it's a long weekend. I might get caught up on some of the things on my list that have been there a long while. LOL. As for finishing 2010 scrapping goals, well, once my craft space is reorged, I might be able to finally get back to scrapping on a regular basis. That was one of my biggest goals this year. Yay!

cinmfoster said...

Happy Anniversary!! I want to clean the house, need to can the tomatoes and peaches, clean out the garden and have a couple of baby girl rag quilts to finish, a couple of mini albums to finish just to name a few.

Elizabeth said...

I hope you guys have a great labor day holiday and happy anniversary. This weekend I am traveling to Louisiana to see family I have not seen all summer. So I guess that is a labor of love. To get to my 2010 scrapping goals: since I have organized my page swaps by themes, I realize that I need to get pictures printed from my digital camera, so I will be looking for an organized way to tackle that several years of pictures.

Anonymous said...

Just finished reading "Stuff" so i hope to do some real cleaning this weekend between bouts of relaxing.

Deanna A. said...

Happy Anniversary, Rock!! Tomorrow we are going to my sister's for a golfing outing, staying overnight and coming home on Sunday. That will give us Monday to be able to do a few things around the house and yard......maybe!! lol Hope you have a productive weekend and take time to enjoy your anniversary!!

Kristen said...

This weekend, I plan on some quality family time since hubby has been out of town, some fall yardwork, and designing for some upcoming SB classes. Oh yeah, and catch up on some sleep!

Lisa said...

It's my 40th birthday this weekend! Eek! Thanks for the chance to win!

Odie said...

I will be having a scrappers garage sale in two weeks. I am sorting my stash and pricing as I go.
For the balance of 2010, I will use my surefire scheduling system. I use a blank calendar and write in tasks for given days. I never write in the whole project; I may not have time to do it all.
I break the project up into measurable tasks, and put one on a specific day two or three times per week. If I accomplish more - that's great! But if I cannot get it done, I still have room on my calendar to reschedule.
If you are true to yourself, you can move mountains with this method :O)

Linda said...

I'm going to a six hour crop tonight, then preparing for a three day cropping retreat at the end of the month. In between the fun scrapbook things, I guess dh and I will try to clean out the garage and my scrapbook room on Monday. Happy anniversary!

dwbarton said...

HI
I am shooting a wedding on Saturday, which will result in me missing my 2 boys first soccer game ever! BUt can't miss out out on a paying gig. Sunday our local church has a BIG firework celebration and my sister lives very close by and we can fireworks from her house. We have a picnic planned for family and friends, checkers, badminton, play with 2 kittens and 2 horses. It will be like back in the old days at Gramma's house. Monday no school and everyone is off work and we are just going to chill!

Amy said...

I need to work on cleaning up my house--my husband recently bought boxes of craft items from an auction!!! Then I need to tackle my scrapbooking corner and upload photos to order online!

Rachel said...

Hi Rock...love your blog, thanks for sharing all your wonderful ideas! My family has a wedding to go to and I am hoping to work on baby shower invites for my friend's shower. Maybe I'll work on some scrapbooking too....if I can stay awake after my almost 2 year old goes to bed! Happy Anniversary!

Nancy Neeley said...

We are relaxing this weekend...hopefully. On my agenda is some scrap room organizing as I prepare to pack everything up until our room addition is to the point I can move things into it. DS #2 needs his own room ASAP before Mom goes crazy. Of course we are going to BBQ as usual on Monday.

Laura Murphy-Ogden said...

I am anxiously awaiting rain and winds from Hurricane Earl to come thru New England tonite.....chillin out for the rest of the weekend, no real plans...and I have no idea how I am gonna tackle the rest of my 2010 scrappin goals...oh wait, I did not set any..lol

I am cleaning computer desk, doing yard work, and work on my TOPS album this labor day weekend. Have a good weekend and thanks for all your ideas.

Laura B said...

I am fortunate to have not only the long weekend, but all next week off work. We are taking part of it to get away and relax; then I plan to start a new scrapbook with the rest of my week. :)

Anna said...

I'm having a garage sale (to clear out some of my extra scrapbooking/stamping items) then will be working on craft show items for pretty much the rest of the weekend along with getting page kits ready for a crop at the end of the month. I'm scrapping over 400 pictures from my parents' trip to Alaska last summer!

Stephanie Van Daele said...

I will be preparing for a very long time away from home due to a work assignment. Good Grief! - the laundry!! :)

I'm going to take my sweetie to a lake so he can swing into it from a rope swing with our friends (he's the physical type). I'm pregnant, so I'll just watch. I also have lots of chores to get done and some phone calls to make. We might go to a park, too, so he can teach me to juggle (which is surprisingly cardiovascular, but I always forget it is until I'm done doing it and realize I'm tired...nice 'cause I'm sure I'm allergic to exercise for the sake of exercise). We also need a lot of rest. We've had a really busy summer. I need to finish moving the stuff we have moved already into our house, and then I need to re-set up my scrapbooking stuff at my scrapbooking desk. I have a lot of it to enjoy before I have our baby in December and there's a lot to work on. I also just became a Mary Kay consultant because I love parties of all kinds and this would be an excuse to have girly parties with my friends and their friends. Also, I'm finally going to have makeup in shades fit for people who don't look just like myself, so I can learn to do really good makeup on different kinds of faces and go to fun business meetings, so I have to read and research a lot this weekend before next week's meeting. Oh, and I'm looking forward to sitting through my first full church session since before I was pregnant (I've been sick all summer, but got better when I moved back home from my hubby's internship in another state). Oh, and I also need to paint my new car key at least at the top with nail polish and some stick-on gems from my crafting gear (they don't make pretty custom keys for our car, so I have to do it myself).

Um, also one more thing: I need to work out a consistent schedule so I can start getting things done that I haven't made time for in a long time (like scrapbooking and learning new songs to sing).

Cathy said...

painting our remodeled room! then we are watching the UK vs UL game....GOOOO CATS!! Planning a fund raiser crop, hopefully I'll get lots of pages done that day!

We are going to a local street fair tonight, celebrating my Dad's birthday with a picnic on Sunday, and helping a friend on Monday...and then in between we are going to go make our traditional last weekend trips to the pool, scrapbook, ride bikes, and just enjoy each others company! Have fun everyone!

PAINTING! Would LOVE to be scraping or doing something fun, but we're painting our Living Room, Dining Room and Hallway. It needs it since it hasn't been painted for 13 years. Ran out of time during the summer, so I'm determined to get it done this weekend. Then I'll have time to scrap! Have a Great Weekend!

Getting to a 'stopping' point in my daughter's album (she's now 7 and I'm up to 5 1/2, LOL). Then get back to work on christmas gifts to be made. Start working on cards for 2011 and have them ready to go (birthday, anniversary's and 'thinking of you' plus thank you and kid friendly fun ones). Always a project to be addressed, but there's always time too.

Enjoy the long weekend!

Spent the entire holiday weekend cleaning, organizing & getting the kids ready for school. I'm hoping to get more scrapping done once the kiddos go back to school. Not sure what my plans/to-do is yet. I'm just focusing on tomorrow right now (kids 1st day back)

Sharon said...

Now that the weekend's over I finally had time to catch up on my e-mail and blog friends. I would have LOVED to catch your garage sale! My weekend went very quickly, most of it was spent working on cards and embellishments for my Etsy shop and making one more attempt to straighten up my craft room. Happy Labor Day everyone!

Raven said...

My hubby and I did a total revamp of my daughter's room. She just started Kindergarten and has graduated to a big-girl bed! I managed to sort every drawer and her closet AND all her toys and donated 5 kitchen size garbage bags to charity...tomorrow I tackle my scrap table while she is at school!
