Christmas in August?

Yep, it's Christmas in August because I'm THAT far behind...or maybe I'm that far ahead! LOL.

Sorry the pictures suck...but nighttime is not the best time for photo taking. Plus I've been having computer issues today. But I wanted to share something. Without further are the two pages I did the other day.

This was made with a Colorbok kit. Honestly, I'm not thrilled with it. The colors don't match very well. And it took me forever to come up with something I liked. Well, most of the time was spent trying to do the title using the dual alphabets in the sizzix. Regardless, it took me 4 hours to do these 2 pages...and they look more like one hour pages.

I've been spending time today trying to get my coupons and such in order. I used to do a lot of couponing to save money. Then when the kids got older I didn't have the time (and they drove me nuts at the grocery store!) but now that I need to watch the $$ I'm trying to get back into it. The trick is to have multiple coupons and then use coupons when items are on sale. You can save quite a bit this way. But it does require a lot of time and organization.

Anyways, hope everyone had a great Monday! Tomorrow my dh has a job interview. And I'm going to spend the day cleaning the house. I have an Arbonne party on Thursday so want to get the house ready.

I like your pages! My grandma was an expert at coupons, sales or getting a deal. I remember when she had lived with us in the mother-in-law apartment my dad added to our house, she had shelves lining the walls to her place. She stored up all kinds of stuff. We could have lived off the stuff for years. Well one day she came in and told us that the store had to give her 10 cents for some air freshner. Something about it being on sale and she had a coupon and they gave her 10 cents to "buy" the air fresher!

Have a good day!
