More Cornhole News

Ken and his brother Scott played in cornhole tournaments the last 2 weekends. Ken made it onto the website for placing 8th in the singles tournament, and for winning the "airmail" contest. It's just too funny! Read all about it . . .

Pats Fan

Football season is underway at our house. Our Sunday afternoon football and wings with the neighbors has grown considerably since last year and now averages 25 people. It's fun for all, we make wings and chili, and everyone brings a dish.

Nate has recently become picky about what he wears, and if he sees his Pats jersey, insists on wearing it. Notice the matching sneakers . . . Kyle says he's "Representing". Thanks Nana Paula for the Pats gear!!

On Monday night one of my girlfriends hosted a couponing workshop. She served margaritas and explained how to take advantage of the deals, work the coupons, etc to save big. She gave us handouts from Coupon Mom along with a couple of handouts she made herself - I was so impressed!

It's a time-consuming process, but gets better as you go. I tried my hand at CVS today and got some pretty good deals, so I'm psyched. I'm setting up a coupon organizer now, I don't have many baseball card trading pages, but I have lots of 3.5x5 photo insert sheets that will work beautifully, since no one prints those sizes any more!

If you have any favorite coupon tips, I'd love to hear them!

Two awesome new kits from Krystal Hartley got me to playing quite a bit. Love these layouts of my favorite guys. With these kits, KH is making her debut at Funky Playground Designs. Hope you love them as much as I do!

How does your scraproom look right now?

I don't think anyone who knows me actually believed that I maintained a pristine space as shown in the photos of my scraproom, so I had to laugh at this little 2peas challenge. I am so proud of my room, I had to take a deep breath before opening the door to snap a photo "as is". I'm just glad that the photo shows the results from a great time had by all at this week's crop with my friends - yes, we really use this room, and yes, we still love our Appletinis!

To quote my pal Krystal Hartley, who shared this website with her design team. This was too fun!
