Sorry I'm a little late getting this post out today but the kiddos needed me this morning. Usually while they eat breakfast I can pop on here and get my blog updated for the day but this morning, they needed Mommy more than usual. Emma has been feeding herself since she was about a year old but today she wouldn't eat a bite unless I fed it to her. Aiden is in one of those finicky stages now where he never wants to eat the same thing twice so I had to try 3 different things for his breakfast. LOL. So... I had my first workout yesterday. Boy am I out of shape! I felt so good afterwards though. I am going to go 4 days a week as of now. If I decide I need another day, i'll go on Saturday mornings.

Here is todays wordart freebie. I hope you like this one. I think it's cute!

Happy Monday Morning!!! I hope everyone had a great weekend and got lots of rest last night. We were supposed to take the kids to the pumpkin festival thingy yesterday but it had been cancelled with no reason given. Bummer. I was so hopeing to get some good pics of the kids in the pumpkin patch. Instead, we took a trip to Tim Hortons for coffee and Tim Bits, and then off to Walmart for some shopping. I bought 3 loofas at $1.47 each! Good deal. I also bought deodorant, and some plastic bottles for shampoo and body wash. Oh yeah... guess what the hubby and I did? We joined Gold's Gym!!! I have my first workout today and I can't wait. I remember the good ole before I had my kids when my body was half the size it is now. Having 2 kids almost back to back really changes a body. For the past few weeks I have been slowly decreasing the amounts that I have been eating and of course eating healthier foods. I have almost cut out cola drinks, almost. LOL. I still like a bit every now and then. I have found a great one at my local Sobeys store that has 0 calories, 0 sodium, 0 aspertame, 0 sugar, 0 caffeine, basically its just colored water. LOL. It still gives you that cola taste and fizz without all the bad stuff. I'm starting to feel a bit better too. So... when hubby gets home from work today, we are heading to the gym. They had a scratch and win promotion when we signed up so we won 5 months of free child-care! That's a $200 saving for 2 kids. WOW! I have to pack our bags today and have everything ready to go when hubby gets home. That's why I bought the plastic bottles for shampoo and body wash. It's better to take the small bottles than the big bottles we have here at home. And of course, I have to remember to pack the new loofas. As the weeks and months progress, I'll keep you updated as to my progress. I am taking a before picture today and when I reach my goal, i'll be taking an after photo. I am so excited.

So... onto todays wordart freebie. This one is a true reflection of my journey to the gym. LOL. Enjoy.

We had a great day yesterday. We took the kids shopping. I didn't buy much, except for ALOT of groceries. There is a new grocery store here called No Frills. It has the best deals! I spent $191 but at regular price I would have spent about $350! That's alot of savings!!! I guess that leaves me some money left over for Digital Scrapbooking Day! Don't forget people that DSD is Novemeber 1st! I can't wait to get those great deals. I've had my eye on a few things lately so I guess on the 1st i'll be getting them now. LOL. Well... here is todays freebie. I mentioned yesterday that I was browsing the galleries at DST for inspiration. I found so many beautiful quotes and wordarts that I just haven't been able to find anywhere else... so i've made my own versions of them. This is another "wordart lift" we'll call it. LOL. Enjoy.

I am in the process of creating some "stuff" for the Christmas Season! I know... Halloween isn't even over yet and here I am all ready to go for Christmas! I am even singing Christmas Carols to the kids. Emma already knows the words to Jingle Bells and when she sings it, she doesn't miss a beat. LOL. It's so cute.

I have released a few new things in my store at Pretty Scrappy for today. I have a 3 packs of gift tags, a pack of round labels, and 2 pack of stamps. THEY ARE SO ADORABLE!!! They have all been created using graphics from the Prim Country Clip Art Collections at Digi Scrap Kits. They are awesome. You can expect to see so very much more of it too! I have LOTS more! All sets can be used as part of your digi-scrapping layouts, or, they can be printed on paper or cardstock and used to decorate your Christmas presents. That's what I will be doing.

ALL GOOD THINGS ARE WILD AND FREE: new wordart freebie

I hope that everyone had a great nights sleep last night. I DID!!!! Aiden slept from 9:15 until almost 3:00 without waking up! He was up then for about 20 minutes to have his bottle until about 3:15. He didn't wake up anymore until 7:05 AM!!! I can honestly say that it was the first time he slept like that since he was born. He usually only sleeps for 2-3 hours and is up for an hour. I feel so refreshed and ready to take on the world!!! LOL. So... what do you think of the new blog header and my "blinkie"? I thought it was cute. If you want to... grab my blinkie (is it still considered a blinkie if it doesn't blink?) I also have a link on my sidebar that will take you to my new CT Blog. Check it out to see the amazing layouts by my new CT. Enough rambling... Here is your wordart freebie for today. Enjoy.

I am in the process of redecorating my blog. The wordart preview is my first "decoration". I hope that you like it. Over the next few days I'm hopeing to have a new blog header and some new stuff on the side as well. I have also changed my file sharing provider to Media Fire. I have heard so many horror stories lately about file stealing through 4 shared. We all work so hard to create our products, we should try and protect them the best we can too.

Cherish Family

It's another early rise in my house today. Aiden woke up at 5 AM and hasn't been back to sleep since. I AM TIRED!!! Then of course, he makes so much noise, Emma gets up to. So, at 5:30 i'm sitting on the couch, a girl in one arm, a boy in the other, and we're watching Toopy and Binoo on Treehouse TV. Ah.... the joys of parenthood. LOL. They are grabbing a bit of breakfast right now so it's a good time for me to post my freebie for today. Enjoy.

Sugar and Spice

I'm running a little late getting my post out today! Yesterday, Aiden climbed out of his crib!!! He is only 14 months old but he climbs like a monkey. So... last night we had to take apart his crib and put a toddler bed in his bedroom. Can you believe it, A TODDLER BED!!! He's still such a little baby though. I'm so sad. I remember when we put Emma in the toddler bed. I was so happy and excited because it meant that she was growing up, now i'm so sad because it means that he's growing up. Make sense?

Any of us that create and design "stuff" for digi-scrapping all know that sometimes we hit a creative wall. No matter what we do, our designs just don't turn out like we wanted or we run out of ideas. Well it happened to me. I have been the past few days trying to get out of this creative rutt that i'm in, then it occured to me. Why not seek inspiration from the very subject. I started browsing the many layout galleries out there and found so much INSPIRATION I don't know what to do with it all. LOL. I have seen so many beautiful layouts, wordarts, and embellishments. It finally got my creative juices flowing again. YAYYYY! So, you should start to see lots of new wordart from me now and if any of it looks familiar, some are my version of what I have found in the many galleries online. So... onto todays freebie. I have also created a little layout to go with this one. Enjoy.

I am so proud to present to you my new Creative Team! Yay.... I have a CT. It's a small one but I think you are definately going to enjoy seeing their beautiful layouts. I know that I have enjoyed them so far.

SHELLEY: Scrap-n-Nan
You know it is true what people say, it really is a small world! I met Shelly online and found out that she is a fellow Newfoundlander. I also found out that she is from the same town my Mom grew up in. Then, I found out that she is very good friends with my Mom's first cousins. WOW.
Here is a little bio from Shelley.
I live in Newfoundland, Canada, been married 30 years to my wonderful hubby, Mom to 3 grown sons and Grandma to two little Grand-daughters, who are my biggest inspiration for Scrapping. I have been using Paintshop for about 5 years and started using Photoshop CS2 this past year, still learning to use that program. I started Paper Scrapping about 6 years ago but eventually started digital Scrapping about 2 years and love it! I still have many albums to do, Heritage for my Mom, 3 childhood ones for my sons, 2 baby albums for my Grand-daughters, etc. So I am going to be a busy busy Scrapper, lol. I find going digital scrap layouts is a great source of relaxation :0)

Here are some of Shelley's beautiful layouts using my wordart.

The next member of my new CT is:
CRYSTAL: Family Comes First
Some of you will know Crystal from her blog Family Comes First and for her active participation in several forums and galleries throughout digi-scrapping land.
Here is a little bio from Crystal.
My family is my life! I am a proud parent(step-mother)to a wonderful boy who is 10. I work full-time for a Accounting/Financial Planning Firm and Part-time at a local School. I love spending time with my family. Photography and Scrapbooking are what I love to do. I have been a paper scrapper for years and started Digital Scrapbooking January 2008 and Love it!
Here are some of Crystal's beautiful layouts using my wordart.

I am so excited to have both Crystal and Shelley as part of my team and I look forward to seeing more of their beautiful layouts in the future.
