    Name: Gwen
    DH/SO: Rich
    Kids(ages): Andrew (8 ), Jordan (7), Natalie (4.5), Jack (2)
    How many scrapbook pages do you usually dedicate to Halloween? Usually 2-4
    Anything else going on this month for you and your family? Andrew's turning 9 ... and DH is missing his birthday again. I'll be a single mom for most of the month, hopefully for the last October ever (DH's contract is hopefully ending)
    What other crafts are you working on? Decorating my home ... but that's not a craft. I need to get back to the handcrafting - I love the photography, but I need to do more.
    How can we get this board moving? Better yet, are you scrapping and if not, why? If I was actually creating, I'd be posting. I just can't seem to find the time. But once the consignment sale is over, I'll have my craft room back and I do plan to start catching up.

    How many scrapbook pages do you usually dedicate to Halloween? Depends it's usually about 2-4 dedicated to trick or treating, but then we have halloween parties and this yr is ds' preschool party, in the past we've had storytime halloween, and sometimes we even do professional halloween ones. Then those mixed in with all sorts of autumn events... love this time of year!!!
    Anything else going on this month for you and your family? A ton of stuff...lots of halloween events, pumpkin picking, apple picking, DH has 2 conferences that he'll be either half way across the US or in another state for. Mixed in with a bunch of mtgs I've been single mommy for a lot lately DH's bday is this month, attempting to go through more stuff and purge things (either via donation or selling), and also hopefully completing more home renovation stuff when DH is here.

    What other crafts are you working on? Right now, nothing Along with how hectic life has been these days I haven't been feeling well most of this pregnancy so it's hard. Closest thing I get to being crafty is organizing the kids rooms and coming up with new storage solutions and putting framed pictures on the walls

    How can we get this board moving? Better yet, are you scrapping and if not, why?
    I would say with more general information threads- like how to tutorials and what not, some challenges, another V Crop, and maybe just some getting to know u threads this board will get hopping again. It just seems like the board has gotten busy for all of us I wish I was scrapping but my scrap/craft room still only contains my boxes of items which have taken a back burner to being unpacked. Mainly b/c I can't find the time to do so many things that need to get done let alone scrap.

    Favorite layout and/or card from September: Haven't done a single thing...I even had some freebies expire on artscow, snapfish, shutterfly etc.

    Kids(ages): Nathan 2 1/2, and baby brother currently baking

    How many scrapbook pages do you usually dedicate to Halloween? 1-3

    Anything else going on this month for you and your family? parents are visiting to help us with some house projects, hoping to get DS's room rearranged and get the twin bed set up in there.

    What other crafts are you working on? big brother t-shirt and decorating baby onesies

    How can we get this board moving? Better yet, are you scrapping and if not, why? Right now, I am scrapping a little bit only...but I have been designing stuff on my gypsy and sketching out pages for the pics I have on hand. So when I do get a chance to scrap, I have stuff ready to go, just have to cut it out, and slap it down. I think maybe a VC or a mini VC would get me going...but I don't know if everyone is too busy, or what.

    OK, I just took pics of mine, so they don't look as nice as the ones already posted... Sorry it's fuzzy, but I'm pretty proud of how this summer one turned out!

I've had the same work in progress on my table for over a week now. I am homeschooling three kids, doing MOPS, Bible study, small group with my hubby, and then there's church in general. LOL Life's crazy good.

    Sorry I some how just saw that I didn't reply on this post!

    Name: Melody
    DH/SO: Donny
    Kids(ages): Xavier
    How many scrapbook pages do you usually dedicate to Halloween? I am so behind that I haven't even scrapped Xavier's first Halloween yet! So not sure, but I am guessing two to four pages most likely.
    Anything else going on this month for you and your family? October and November have tons of birthdays in the family! Plus DH has shoulder surgery to repair a torn rotater cuff. So I am currently taking care of two children! LOL!
    What other crafts are you working on? Just working on my Christmas Cards.
    How can we get this board moving? Better yet, are you scrapping and if not, why? I think if we can all get scrapping and sharing more that will help to increase the board movement. Also maybe we could start sharing techniques and tools more. Like if we find something and use it and really like it, we could share it.
    Favorite layout and/or card from September: I actually did get some pages scrapped! I will take pictures of them and post my favorite! Ran into a problem...batteries died and I don't have any spares tonight! I can't believe I am out of lithium batteries!!!
