7 Years of Bad Luck?

My dh informed me Sunday morning that he broke my little hand-held mirror when he went to get his comb. He said that he just gave us 7 more years of bad luck. Well, with the luck we've been having lately, I don't think it can get any worse! Can it? I'm not really much of a superstitious person.....if a black cat crosses in front of me, I don't just stop in my tracks (reminds me of a recent My Name Is Earl episode). But like I said, our luck hasn't been very good lately. The problems we had with the car, problems at Jim's job (he may end up having to go on 2nd shift soon), problems with my sisters, problems with my son, etc......I'm just beginning to think that that my life isn't ever going to just run smoothly.

I am so not ready for winter to get here! After having that little bit of snow the other week & seeing a LOT of roadkill lately, I have this funny feeling that we're in for a very long, cold winter this year :( Almost every day this month, it's been either cloudy or rainy & I miss the sun! I need the sun! The only good thing to come out of this yucky weather is that I'm actually scrapbooking.....a lot! :) Afterall, what else is there to do when the weather's like this??? Here are just a couple of the layouts I've done in the past week & a half:
This was above was pretty simple.....it just kind of all came together for me, which doesn't happen very often. Supplies: Bazzill, CI PP, MME Bohemia PP, quote, title & transparency, Primas, brads, Fancy Pants flourishes chipboard, Heidi Swapp chipboard & ghost hearts, Making Memories paints.
In this next one, I used up some of my old stash.....Basic Grey Fusion PP, monograms & chipboard alphabets, Primas, Heidi Swapp flowers, Making Memories quote stickers & chipboard alphabet & rhinestones.
I love the way this one above turned out! I traced out the flower using a piece of MOD paper that I had & then used MOD paper, Bazzill, Heidi Swapp chipboard alphabet, Technique Tuesday Arrow, Prima flowers, ribbon, rick-rack & rhinestones. It's hard to tell, but I doodled dots all around the flower just using 2 Galaxy Markers.
This one was another pretty simple one. These are pictures throughout the years of Cassie hiding from the camera. Bazzill, Cosmo Cricket PP, Bazzill buttons, Making Memories Ledger Paper & Heidi Swapp chipboard alphabet.
Yeah, yeah, so I 'stole' this title, but I thought it was perfect for these pictures of my granddaughter talking on her Dad's cellphone :) Bazzill, Prima PP, flowers & rick-rack, Heidi Swapp Chipboard Alphabets & Journaling Spot, Rhinestones.

I also did a layout of my car, but everytime I try to add it to blogger, it turns it sideways, so if you want to see it, you can view it here: Sports Cars Aren't Just For Boys Anymore!

That's all for now.....gotta bowl tonight.

I hate it when you just have a horrible bad streak going. It just never seems to get better. I truly understand how you feel. You just wish something good could happen.
As for the winter... I hate to admit it.. but I have to agree with you. It's not looking good right now. I do NOT like the cold. This also seems like it is going to last forever. Tanning salon here I come. It always makes me feel better. I will go for the entire winter.
Your layouts are awesome. I love everything about them. Great work. I wish I could come up with some creative thoughts. Keep up the good work.
