Weekly Wrap-up: It’s a new month!

I do so love it when the new month starts on a Friday- it’s like super bonus with the buffet and new releases and new challenges and and and..!

Since our newsletter just delivered you the royal treatment, I want to quick go over some things coming up. The end of the month can be so drab and quiet with all the finishing of challenges and some of us still  recovering from iNSD, plus Summer is in full affect most places and I sure hope that means everyone is outside  making memories!

First up, GingerScraps Book Club!

Our read for the month of June is The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks!  I personally have never read a Nicholas Sparks book, but I hear they are fantastic so I can’t wait to start this one as my first! JoyLynn is also looking for some input, she wants to know what you want to see every month in the book club, she’s open to any suggestions!

Next, make sure to check out the Bake Sale happening RIGHT NOW!

You only have until June 5th to grab as much as your can for just $1 and let me tell you, there are some real surprises in this months bake sale! Do NOT miss this!

Did you know there is a brand-spanking-new challenge this month hosted by Jenn of Joyful Heart Designs? It’s a brush challenge! For the first month, she chose a wicked cool bird brush set. Brushes can be used for anything!  I know Jenn can’t wait to see what you all come up with, and neither can I!

Guess what? Z Pink Boudoir Designs is having a CT call! Join the Zeee-speration!

Guess what else?! JenC Designs is having one too! JenC is looking for Guest CTs for the summer months – but there’s a twist! More than one way to enter and more than one way to grab some of her super cute goodies!

Good luck to BOTH designers on their calls!

Now, to wrap-up the wrap-up (HA!), with the sunny days and the weather heating up, who’s ready for their summer do’s? Renee (MnMommy2) got everyone talking about hair (cuts, styles, color)! Which of course, got me thinking-  I need a hair cut myself! Except, I’m one of those that loves the cut for a few days then immediately misses my long hair so any drastic cuts are out of my future- but what about all of you? Who is getting a new do for summer, and more importantly will you scrap the before and after? 😉



Weekly Wrap-Up: March 18, 2012

Sarah here!! How ya doing? I’m a little spread thin, I swear. Today, I have Girl Scouts. Second to last official meeting for that. I’m both sad and excited. After that, we have one more meeting, and THREE trips. I’m sadly only going on one of those. But Madison (my daughter) is going on all three. I’m excited for her.

Speaking of children (and excitement), and part of the reason I’m just spread out so thinly: March 17. Y’all know it as St. Patrick’s Day. Well, we know it as Oh Crap! He’s Aging Up! AKA, my son Ethan’s birthday. This year, he turned SEVEN. To celebrate, we bought a new car. Okay, that wasn’t really a celebration, but he got to see a Camaro, which made him happy, I think.

075/366 [2012] - Little Boy and His Dream

So, that’s what’s new with me. 😀 If anyone is paying attention, no, we didn’t buy the Camaro. We bought a 2011 Chevrolet Malibu. Program car, so GM-certified everything inside when it comes to maintenance, and 7500 miles, or so (a little more, but still *sweet*)

Weekly Wrap-up

Sarah here! How’d your week go? Mine was nuts and insane. I’m part of my local girl scout troop and they adore putting me to work. In case you didn’t know, this year marks the 100-year-anniversary of Girl Scouts. Can you imagine? 100 years? So, they’re hosting a week-long event in Washington, DC. Four out of eight of the juniors in our troop are going. $4000 for them to go (including their parents), and that’s with hiring a charter bus. :O CRAZY. So, we’re hosting fundraisers and the like. I’ve been helping.

Anyways, there’s a point to that tangent. I figured, since I’ve been doing SO much with Girl Scouts (and NOW Boy Scouts because of  my son), I’d share one of my go-to products, created by our own Connie Prince.

Perfect, right? I use it SO often. Well, okay, now onto the news around Gingerscraps!!

Discussions of the Hunger Games have started!! There are separate threads for Books 2 & 3 (Girl on Fire & Mockingjay), so you won’t get spoiled if you haven’t read Books 2 & 3. Come join us!! Give us your opinion on the books, the characters, the author. All that good stuff!!

ChristinaP wants to know if anyone is watching Survivor. I’m not personally, but if you are, join in with the chat. 😀

ChristinaP also found a thread on another Facebook saying “Digi isn’t real“. Several members really didn’t like hearing (well, reading that). What’s your opinion? What do you think of Digi? Hopefully if you’re reading this, you believe it’s real, and a lot of fun!!

It’s been a pretty quiet week all around. Now, it’s WAY late for me (lost an hour to Daylight Savings Time!! Did you?), and I’m hungry, so I’m going to just say “Ciao” and see you next week!!
