Hi All, Hope everyone is having a good morning. I woke up to SNOW today! I am so excited. Aiden got a new snowsuit from his Nanny and Poppa for Christmas and I haven't had a chance to get him outside to wear it. When we had the last snowfall, he was sick and couldn't go outso, today when the Hubby gets home from work, we're gonna bundle up the kids and hit the snow. It should be "snow" much fun. HaHaHa! SNOW much fun! Silly me! Last night I was playing around with my kit THE ANGEL'sGARDEN and created a cute set of quick pages to sell in my store. I really like how they turned out. The dark colors give the pages a masculine feel but the pretty flowers soften the pages and make it more feminine. These pages can be used for so many different types of layouts. Head on over to my store and pick them up for only $2.00 until the end of the week! Click HERE to go to my store. Check out the preview.

Here is a new wordart freebie for you all to enjoy. I just loved this quote when I read it yesterday. I hope that you can use it too.

BIG SALE ON MY STORE AT PRETTY SCRAPPY: Plus, the last Freebie QP from Sweet Baby Of Mine!

Happy Monday Morning!!! I haope that evryone had an awesome weekend... I know I did. On Saturday, we took the kids for a drive to a nearby town called Cochrane. As you leave Airdrie, and head west, you get closer and closer to the Rocky Mountains. The closer you get the more awesome the views are. The mountains looked so beautiful all covered in snow. It was the perfect picture opportunity, and guess what, I forgot the camera! We're going out there again on Saturday morning so i'll be sure to take the camera and get you some pics. We went to Tim Horton's for a coffee and a breakfast sandwich. YUMMY! For those of you not familiar with Tim Horton's, they have the best coffee and donuts, not to mentin the breakfast sandwich! It has a crumbly, soft, biscuity, bready type bun, an egg, and a sausage round with a slice of Canadian cheddar! All this is served toasted and warm. YUM. If you had one, you'd understand my culinary excitement. LOL. Anyhoo... we did a little shopping and I have to go back next weekend to get the cutest baby doll for Emma's Birthday! She''ll be 3 in May and i'm starting to pick up her presents early this year. Last year we went a little overboard with the presents but this year she's only getting a few presents, with the economic downturn the way it is, who can afford such extravagant birthdays? Not me. She'll just be happy to have a party and have her friends here. I'm sure she won't notice if she's gotten less than last year.

On Sunday, I had some quiet time to design while the kids were napping. I created another BLOGWEAR pack. This one was created using my kit THE ANGEL's GARDEN. I really like how this set turned out. Especially the photo banner. It's so cute. Check out the preview below. And it's on sale now for only $2.50!

I have decided that until the 28th at midnight, all of my products will remain on sale. All my kits are 50% off or $2.00 each! All wordart is 40% off or $1.50 each!

Good Morning All. Hope you are having a great day so far. Mine isn't so good.... just when we thought we were getting better, we're all sick again! It must be a stomach bug because food poisoning doesn't last that long! Poor babies are so miserable. Aiden just wants to cuddle and everything makes him cry. Emma isn't as bad though. She is staying pretty quiet and watching her "shows". Good girl she is.

When both of my kids were born, I was the first one to put a suckie, pacifier, binkie, or whatever you call it, in their little mouths. It stopped the crying and helped them sleep. BIG MISTAKE!!! Emma will be 3 years old in May and she still uses her suckie. She is definately too big for one now because she keeps biting holes in them and then when she bites a hole in hers, she moves onto Aiden's. I have spent about $25 in the past month on suckies. Finally last night I said to the Hubby that the madness had to stop! Very dramatic I know LOL. I told Emma that the next time she bit her suckie I was taking it from her. She laughed because i've made this threat before and never followed through. Well as I was putting her to bed, she bit the suckie! I took it out of her mouth and tried to explain to a screaming almost 3 year old that she was gooing to have to go to sleep without it. She cried herself asleep. Gosh did I ever feel like the horrible Mother. But the good news is, SHE SLEPT ALL NIGHT WITHOUT HER SUCKIE!!!!!! The first time since she was born that she didn't sleep with it. I was so proud and told her so this morning. She is still sick so I let her have it when she asked for it this morning but she's just playing with it mostly. Every now and then she puts it in her mouth for a suck and then she spits it out again. When she goes down for her nap today, no suckie either! I'll keep you posted as to OPERATION SUCKIE REMOVAL! LOL.

Anyhoo... enough of my ramblings. I still have a few more quick pages from my baby kit SWEET BABY OF MINE for you. Here is todays freebie. Tell you what.... if you use this or any of the SWEET BABY OF MINE quick pages, send me a message with a copy of your layout and i'll send you a coupon for $1.00 off the kit. Sound good? Be sure to send your layouts to: Don't forget to post your layouts in my Inspiration Gallery at Pretty Scrappy. Click HERE to go to my gallery.

Hi All. Hope you are all having a great morning. Mine is better today than yesterday. We are still all sick but at least today i'm up and about and not confined to the couch! LOL. I had an email today asking me how Aiden was doing sleeping in his new bed... WONDERFUL!!! Thanks for asking! He only woke up once last night and once the night before. He loves the big bed because he can move around and not hit his little arms and legs off the walls. He looks sooooooo small in that great big bed though. But so cute too.

So I guess you're wondering what this Wednesday Wordart thing is all about? Well... every Wednesday I will be posting a new wordart on the Pretty Scrappy Blog. I'll post a preview here on my blog but to get the download, you have to go to the Pretty Scrappy Blog. Make sure that you check the blog everyday too because there are going to some awesome "things" for you by all of our designers. Well... Onto the wordart.

So... to get this awesome new wordart, click to go to the blog! If you download the wordart, create a layout and post it in my Inspired Mommie Designs Inspirational Gallery at Pretty Scrappy. As a little bonus, if you also use one of my kits to create your layout, send me a copy to and i'll send you a coupon for $2.00 off any single order in my store! Yay!

Today post is going to be a quick one... I'm sick, Emma is sick, Aiden is sick and now, so is the DOG!!! I don't know if it's a bad stomach bug or it may be a case of food poisoning!!! All I know is that we are all really yucky today. I'm going to cuddle with my babies on the couch under a big comfy blanket and watch cartoons!

I created a few QP's to coordinate with my kit SWEET BABY OF MINE. Here is a cutie for you all. Enjoy.

LOVE: Another new kit-AIDEN

I hope that you all had a great Valentine's Day and that you were all spoiled rotten! I know I was. I was awoken to breakfast in bed, which the kids spilled all over my new comforter! LOL. Never try to eat breakfast in bed with a hyper 18 month old! We then went into Calgary and bought Aiden a new double bed! He is tooooooo big for his toddler bed so we had to get him a big bed. I also stopped to Walmart and got him a new bed-in-a-bag. I didn't want to get him anything childish that he would grow out of too soon so I got him blue, red, and cream stripes. I have some adorable pictures that I created out of my new kit called AIDEN, which i'll be showing you later that I am going to put on his walls. I figured that the accents would make up for the "older" comforter set. After we assembled the bed and got everything washed, dried and placed on the bed, we let the kids come up and jump on the bed. They had alot of fun. By this time it was supper and the Hubby had made me a wonderful pizza with caesar salad. It was YUMMY! After the kids were put to bed, we sat down and had some us time. We had a few glasses of wine and talked for hours. It was wonderful. We don't get much alone time so it was very much enjoyed. Oh yeah... I didn't tell you what I got for Valentine's Day. I got a new Bed-In-A-Bag for my bedroom. It is beautiful. I'll try and take some pics for you later. I got 2 bottles of wine and chocolates, bath stuff (bubble bath, soap, salts, scrubbies and loofas, towel set) and I also got a new breadmaker, toaster oven and a deep fryer! The kitchen appliances were badly needed, not romantic, but the wine, chocolate and bath stuff made for a wonderful night!

I also had some time this week to create a new kit called AIDEN! Knowing that I wanted to used Red and Blue in his bedroom, I had a great idea for accessories to use in his room. Hence, the creation of AIDEN. Check out the preview.
I just love the way this kit turned out! I created some really cute wall blocks in this kit. They are 8x8 inches so they are the perfect print at home size. They can also be resized with ease. Click HERE to go to my store at Pretty Scrappy to buy this great kit. It's on sale now for $3.00!

Well... it's only 2 more days until Valentines Day! Do you have all you goodies yet? I'm going out today and buying some for the kids and a little something special for the Hubby too. We usually don't buy much for ourselves for Valentines Day but this year we decided to do something romantic for each other. It's always so hard to find something for the Hubby. Not that he's hard to buy for, it's just that he's a man and all men are hard to buy romantic things for. Any suggestions? I told the Hubby that I wanted bath stuff. I have a new BIG soaker tub so bath stuff would be great for those late night bubble baths.

Here is todays love themed wordart. Enjoy!

Good Morning! I hope that everyone had a great weekend! Mine was very lazy. We didn't do anything, just stayed home and had some family time. We watched a few movies. The first was THE OMEN... great movie!!! I love these horror type flicks and this was a good one. We then watched YOU, ME, & DUPREE... hilarious! I love Owen Wilson. Then after the kids went to bed Saturday night, the Hubby and I sat down on the couch, snuggled and watched THE STEPFORD WIVES... good movie, not great, but good. The best part of the whole thing was that we actually got to watch the whole movie without any interruption from the kids! That was a first. So... if all goes well next Saturday night, we're gonna try it again. This time we are going to have a few snacks and maybe a glass of wine. We are always sooo busy with the kids that we never have any US time. It should be nice and definately well deserved.

So... onto todays wordart freebie. I think this one is a perfect match to my Hubby and I. Enjoy.

I had a horrible night last night! Aiden wouldn't sleep AGAIN!!! This boy is 18 months old today and is still not sleeping through the night. He has a few good nights when i'm only up with him a few times, and then there's nights like last night. TORTURE! I'm going on about 2 hours sleep for the whole night so i'm pretty tired and cranky today. LOL. I'm afraid that if I sit down and get comfy i'll fall asleep. I'm about to have a strong cup of coffee to see if that'll perk me up a bit.

Make sure you go over to Pretty Scrappy tomorrow for SUPER SATURDAY!!! Lots of goodies for a great price. I may even have a few surprises, hint, hint!
