Time to Party!!!!!!!

Today marks the start of the Ultimate Blog Party at 5 Minutes for Mom!

So get yourself over there and start visiting blogs for your chance to meet new friends and win great prizes.

I am even giving away a digital scrapbook kit or two :)

And for those of you I have never met - it is great to meet you! Please leave a comment and I will definitely swing by your blog as well.

Some facts about me:

  • My name is Lisa and I am addicted to scrapbooking.....eventually my husband will find a way to start the SA support group (Scrapaholics Anonymous) lol

  • My family is the most important thing to me in the world, second only to God.

  • I am married to a man who makes me laugh everyday.

  • I hate getting up early but do my best work early in the morning (go figure...)

  • I make lists in my head when I fall asleep of all the things I plan to do the next day.

  • I never finish anything on those lists because of my main (and favorite) occupation: being a Mom :)

  • I love to pamper myself...but haven't done much of that in the last 3-1/2 years. Yes, my daughter is 3-1/2....

  • I am inspired by my daughter, music, nature and fabric.

  • I am addicted to paper...if it's beautiful and colorful - I probably have a sheet of it.

  • I never use my favorite scrapbook papers unless I have an extra piece. Even that fabulous sheet of paper I found at Papyrus last year (for the sale price of $8 lol) is still sitting in the container waiting for the perfect project, which will never come around.

  • I love speaking to a crowd or just about anyone. I am a true people person :)

  • I can memorize things quickly without writing them down.

  • I can also speed-read.

  • I can tile any surface....I worked for a ceramic tile & natural stone company for 10 years. Have a question about your remodeling project, feel free to ask. I wear many hats :)

  • My typing is atrocious when I type fast and I refer to it as typo-nese.

  • My favorite part of my body is my hair, even though I am embarassed by compliments.

  • I have very white teeth. LOL yeah I know, sounds weird, but they are Hollywood white, which is as close as I will ever get to having my name and Hollywood in the same sentence.

  • Oh did I mention I love scrapbooking...along with graphic design, knitting & reading.

  • My favorite guilty pleasure is Nickelback :) I have been to 4 shows in the past year and will be seeing them 4 more times in the next 2 weeks!

  • I love making new please drop me a comment and welcome to my blog!!

Have a great Friday! Happy Day 1 of the Ultimate Blog Party!

♥, Lisa

Popping over as I ride the party train. Nice to "meet" you

Ooh, a fellow scrapper here. Except I haven't tried digital yet. Just paper so far. I love your quote in your sidebar about the number of children who have died from abortion. Thanks for your bravery in displaying that.

Anonymous said...

Here for the party. I enjoyed reading about you!

Lissete said...

Visiting for the party. Nice to meet you! I am a scrapbook stuff hoarder and a sometimes actual scrapbooker :)

Jen said...

Hi Lisa nice to meet you
I love being a Mum too :)

Jen said...

Oh I forgot to say I love that picture of the girl and the flowers

Kelley said...

Hey Lisa, my husband is trying to find a SA group for me too! I have loads of paper stuff even though I just sold a bunch of it because I am all digital now. Love it! I'll be back to visit again soon.

Come on over to the House o' Glamour if you get a chance.

Judy said...

Happy Party! I'll definitely be back to see you later and get to know you better. Now... I'm off to party hop some more before bedtime!

Lisa Boyd said...

Hey Lisa,

Nice to virtually meet you :) My husband will be trying to start a LA support group (Laptops Anonymous) -- especially if I ever figure out how to start digital scrapbooking!

Party hopping on a Saturday! Glad to meet you, and read your blog. If you get the chance, please stop by my place for a cup of virtual coffee and some party chit chat. Party on!


Multi-tasking Mommy said...

Very nice blog!
Great to meet you. We do have quite a bit in common.

I love scrapbooking too.

Please feel free to join me over at my place

A Juggling Mum said...

Nice to meet you, thanks for inviting us to your blog.

Have a great party week!

Janice (5 Minutes for Mom) said...

Wish I could say the same about my teeth. I don't smoke or drink coffee, yet they are yellowish. I have tried bleaching, but after a few days I get sick of it - it is GROSS - and give up.

Your hair is fabulous!

Alas - I have soooo much paper and scrap stuff waiting for me - but I can't seem to get off this darn computer! I am going to have to digiscrap one day! :)

Jaime H. said...

Hi! Here from the party!!

Stacey said...

Party cruising and stopped in to say hi. Will be back for those great scrapbook ideas later!


Southern Girl said...

Dropping by the party from Memphis, TN! I loved getting to know you from this post -- you know how to do stuff I wish I did, like designing graphics. I'm hopeless!

Like you, I LOVE paper! I don't scrapbook, but I do make greeting cards, and I just can't be turned loose in a stationary or crafts store without a chaperone. hee!

You have every reason to be proud of your hair -- it's beautiful! I generally think my hair is my only good feature, so I know the feeling. ;)

Have a fun party and if you haven't already made it over to pay me a visit (it's so hard to keep track!), please drop in soon!

Jessica said...

Scrapbooking, reading, my girls - We have a lot in common except I am more into crocheting. In fact, I have never tried knitting. But how do you balance it all. Some days I feel like I am at the end of myself.

That is why blogging is so great. You get to hear the good and the bad of others lives and know you are not alone.

Come visit me sometime. My website is

Amydeanne said...

I"m a digi scrap lover myself!!
I'll have to go check out your site!

Michelle said...

A woman after my own heart! I so understanding the hording of the scrap paper! I havent done the digiscrap though. I am also a list maker! At night in my head. But also i list everything down in writing! If Im going somewhere there is probably a list involved! And please dont tell my hubby about the SA group!

Chrystal said...

Yea...I'm ready to start reading your tutorial posts about digital scrapbooking. I've heard a lot about it but don't know the first thing.

Enjoy the party!


UKZoe said...

Dropping by on the party circuit from teh English end of the party. It's 7:30am nearly and my boys are getting ready for school. Good morning!

Revka said...

I'm here for the party. Digital scrapping sounds like fun, though I have to admit I haven'teven tried "real" scrapping yet. :) (Too many kids; not enough time.) I'm partying at both of my blogs: The Porch Light and Little Fun; Little Learning. Enjoy the party!

DK said...

Good to meet you! Just stopping by on the Party Tour. I think it may take me 3 months to visit all these blogs! Anyway, I've enjoyed my visit very much. Party on!

Tiff said...

My husband is a graphic designer and he and I are ..addicted to paper! You should see our shelves on our desks! LOL We could probably supply the entire school!

Sara said...

Popped on by riding the Party Express! I clicked on your name b/c it sounded interesting! It's good to meetcha! Come on over to the Estrogen FIles sometime and I'll let you retile my bathroom. How's that sound for PAR-TAY?!

Barbara H. said...

Hello! I'm dropping by for the blog party. I have done just a bit of scrapbooking and would like to do more, but haven't done any digitally.

That's funny about only using paper if you have a second copy. Some of it does truly look too beautiful to use.

I enjoyed reading your list! Hope you can drop by my party here.

Tonya said...

Nice to meet you! I love to scrapbook too but I just can't seem to find the time with kids! One day though I am going to get caught up.

Brandie said...

Your hair is gorgeous, I have to say I noticed that right away in your picture!!
I loved reading your intro - I mostly read and knit myself. I like to scrapbook but haven't managed to find time to do it! Someday ... when the kids are grown and I'm sitting missing them, then I'll work on their baby books! LOL!
My party is over at
