One of my favorite summer events takes place tomorrow: Arthur Ashe Kids' Day! @AAKIDSDAY. I am volunteering on Court 11! Stop by & say hi! 

I have always enjoyed late August, early September. It means new school books, new TV cartoons/TV shows, seeing old friends, shiny new shoes & my Daddy taking me from store to store so I can find the PERFECT lunchbox! (Metal-lol). As an adult, late September means volunteering at the US OPEN Arthur Ashe Kids Day. I have been volunteering for the last several years and it feels awesome to give back as I was a recipient of Arthur Ashe's tennis program when I was a teen-ager. Through this free program, I was able to meet greats like Chrissy Everett and John McEnroe and the late Vitas Geralitis.  I adore the game of tennis! 

If you get a chance, grab a kid or two and take them out for a day of fun! The events are free. THE SHOW IS A PAID EVENT-BUT IS AIRED ON CBS ON SUNDAY. The food is reasonable. Go on! HAVE FUN!!!

It's Just Paper & Glue!

Hi everyone! It has been so very busy around here for the last few months! Noodles has graduated high school and started college on July 9th! Yep! She is attending school year round and did not want to wait! She is a Fashion Merchandising Major in a NYC and loves it!

In addition to getting Noodles set, life has gotten in the way of scrapping! I am dealing with chronic migraines. My email was hacked and boy was that UGLY! My cell phone, since it is connected to my email account, had to be reset as well. Speaking of UGLY-there have been a few nasty things going on over on YT that RUCKUS and I are going to address on the next TABLE SCRAPS! Sad that people cannot remember that when it comes down to it......

 we are all creatively connected
 and scrapping is just paper and glue!
