Oh, how I wish.

I wish I could…

doze, sleep, dream, nap, sleep, rest, shut eye, sleep, slumber, snooze, hibernate, sleep, catch up on zzz’s, sleep, hit the sack, in dreamland, or sleep.

Oh, how I wish I could be doing this.

Oh, how I wish I could be doing this.

It’s way past the time I normally go to bed, but I can’t seem to sleep. Maui’s right next to me, and she’s snoring away. I swear she could wake the neighborhood if I opened a window! I’ve tried to count sheep, dream of things that make me feel all warm and cozy, drink something warm, and basically anything else that helps put people to sleep, but nothing seems to be working right now. I’m going to feel the effects of this in the morning– I’ll be a walking zombie even though I’m going to need to be up and lively! YIKES!

Anyway, since I’m posting… I thought that I would post some layouts that I worked on yesterday.

This month, I was in charge of coming up with the challenge over at Scrap Outside the Box, so make sure to head on over here to read the challenge posted by yours truly.  The “outside the box” item is something I know all of you have, so make sure to play along! All you have to do is use toilet paper on a layout, haha! I seriously can’t wait to see the finished layouts from everyone. The title was inspired by the current song over at Scrapping the Music. Here’s mine – I turned toilet paper into a flower:

I loved Prompt 22 over at Gutter Girlz, so I had to play along; it’s all about doing what you want to do and using the song “Mind Your Own Business”. I had a lot of fun creating this one because it represents the “biz-natch” in me, haha. Actually, I’m hardly a bitch (I’m usually sweet and gentle), but as of late, I’m totally guilty of being one. Sometimes, I think every girl has the right to be that way, don’t you think?

Oh, and in case you haven’t noticed, Red Oak Lines now has it’s own domain on the web — because I’m cool, haha. Just kidding! Any way, you can reach my blog at “http://redoaklines.com” now, but of course, you can still reach at its former location, “https://redoaklines.wordpress.com“. By using the former link, it will direct you to the new link. 🙂

Oh, and if you want to play, I’m still doing a RAK over here.

That is it for now. I’m going to try to get some sleep. Tomorrow is going to be a tiring day.



PS: Your guesses make me smile. All of you are so silly!
