Back to regular scheduled programming

So it has been a month and a week since I last posted. I would sit down to type and say hello to you all and it just wasn't in my energy to get anything out. I would think about all of you in blogland and know that some of you were getting frustrated with no new post. I know I get pissy when my regular blogs I visit don't post. Why? I don't know. I look forward to catching up so to speak. But did that make me post a new post...NOPE!
It has been a little stressful around the Gurzi household. I won't bore you with details but life just happens and you have to sometimes just punt and see where the ball lands.

Let's see football season is well on it's way and with that brings a very busy schedule for us. Practices, practices, and more practices! Makenna has started her competition season of Color Guard and they have already placed first TWICE! so stinkin proud of her and her whole team! They work their butts off so this is very well deserved! In fact, I will go out on a limb and say they work harder than the football team! God knows they are at that school longer than any other sport!
We are off this weekend for a flag football tournament and a color guard performance in San Diego. A jam packed weekend! Looking forward to it!
As far as work goes this for me is a catch up time here at the office. time to clean up, get organized. Who am I kidding...haven't organized nothin!What I do need to do is start thinking about my CHA winter class here pretty quick.
Here is a recipe book that I made for Michael's few months back. All out of chipboard and then covered with our Cornucopia paper and lots of cornucopia soft spoken.
I love this project. The colors are Fabulous! Each page has a pocket so that you can add recipe cards every year when you get new recipes! Yummy!
These next two projects were made for us from Adrienne and Irene. They will design things for us when we need them to. They are the best!

Are they not the most cutest things EVAH! All cornucopia soft spoken and paper from cornucopia paper pads. Wreath and glittery banner thing amajig from Michaels! I so love the banner!!!! It has been hanging in my office for months. I am going to be very sad when I have to take it down. It just makes me happy. Which is funny in itself. Why you ask?? I loathe Halloween. Never have liked it not even as a kid. I hate dressing up! HATE IT! I consider myself a pretty fun person and this is where my fun stops. I mean really dressing up?? for what? I just don't get it! I do love the little ones coming to my door. Now that is priceless. Just don't ask me to do it. I have boycotted Halloween parties for years. For my friends that want to have a Halloween party don't feel bad if you don't invite me. I won't feel bad RSVP'ing NO! hee hee! Enough of that silliness!

I am off to Jaxon's class party. I am the official class photographer. I have to tell you I feel a lot of pressure with this job. Not sure why?? Give me room mom duties anytime over this. hmmm... i do have issues, don't I? Maybe this is why I haven't blogged lately all my issues!
Anyway, here are the goodie bags I made for his class.
I got the idea from here.
I love this website. Great teacher gift ideas, party ideas, etc. Bookmark it and refer back to it. You will not be disappointed!
I am going to run a contest so that I can get some regular viewers back. I am sure some of you have given up on me. Always check back because you just may miss a great giveaway!
In honor of Halloween, post your favorite Halloween costume adventure. Be it your child or your self I will pick a winner on Tuesday. How does some beautiful new Christmas paper and embellishments sound??
That is all I have and I gotta jet! Have a great weekend with the families. make wise choices out there if you do go to a Halloween party and go through the candy lots of weird emails going around about stuff in the candy this year! Weird!
