HI! How was your weekend? Mine was great! We started the de-weeding and that went well. We only have about another day or so and it should be finished. Then we have to spray the yard and hopefully next week it will be all ready to lay the sod, then the fence goes up too. Yay! I had a little time on Saturday and Sunday to work on my new kit. It's gonna be a nice one. Soft creams, beiges, with just a splash or two of red/fuschia/burgundy. I think it's gonna turn out nice. Hopefully it'll be finished for next week.

I also got a chance to get some wordart done! I've been going through some of my requests so you may see yours here this week. LOL. With that being said... here is todays freebie. This one was a request from Emmelline. Hope you like it. Enjoy!

TGIF!!! Do you have any special plans for the weekend? We're hoping to get the back yard fully de-weeded and raked up on Saturday so we can order our grass sods next week. Yay! I can't wait to get the yard finished so the kids can get out there and play. They play on our patio now. It's only 12x12 so it's not much room to run around and be silly. They love it though, but i'm sure they'll love the grass soooooo much more. Before we start tomorrow, i'll take a before pick so you can see just how bad the weeds out there are. It's like a jungle! lol.

I just wanted to let you know that I have 2 new wordart packs in the store this weekend. Check out the previews below. Also don't forget that my new kit CHERISH is on sale for 25% OFF as well as the matching Brag Book Album.

So... here is todays wordart freebie! This one is a request from Kathy. Hope you like this Kathy! Enjoy!

Hi All! I am soooo tired today! The past few nights the kids haven't been sleeping very well. Emma has been waking up screaming, she must be having nightmares. And Aiden is teething again so he's up every 20 minutes or so. If they don't sleep... I don't sleep. It was also so hot last night. We had the windows open and the fans on but it didn't help much. I feel like my head weighs a hundred pounds today. lol.

Hi Everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! And a belated HAPPY FATHERS DAY to all the Dads out there and also to the Moms who act as both. We had a very quiet Fathers Day. The hubby was actually doing some landscaping. He's gotten the front yard deweeded and raked up. It looks pretty good too. The next step is to till the soil and get the grass seed planted. I have a few flowers in mind to plant in a little plot out front too. I'm gonna get those today at the garden center. The front definately needs a few splashes of color. I'm looking for a bench to put on the front steps too. Can't find one the right size though. I may have to get one custom built. Oh well.

I have 2 new releases for today in my store. The first is a brag book album created from my kit SPRING IS IN THE AIR. The second is a set of Brag Book Templates. It's a new CU item! Yay! I had a few emails last week asking if I created my own templates for my brag book albums or if I used someone elses. I created my own. Yay for me! LOL. This set includes 6 templates. They can be used for personal, commercial or scrap 4 hire.

So... here is today wordart freebie! If you remember when I went on vacation last month, I had a little contest. Well... this week i'm going to be giving you those wordart quotes that were submitted for the contest! Yay! Todays wordart was a quote from Scrapmtastic. I just loved this quote. So funny, but so true. Enjoy!

Hi All! Hope everyone had a great weekend! On Saturday I decided that it was time for me to do some organizing! I have been in this house now since mid-December and I still haven't unpacked most of my things. The Hubby took care of the kids and I went to work upstairs. By the time lunchtime rolled around, I had unpacked a dozen boxes, thrown away 3 full garbage bags full of junk, cleaned my master suite, including the closets and bathroom, organized the kids rooms and their bathroom, plus I re-folded all of my blankets, linens, towels, facecloths in my linen closet too. Once I had eaten lunch, I went back up and vaccumed everything. It looks awesome up there now. This week i'm going to try and get down to my basement and start going through bags and boxes down there.

Sunday we went took it easy and went for a relaxing drive. It was sooooo hot it was nice to get in the truck and have some air conditioning! It really sucks that my house doesn't have central air! Yesterday I went back to the Dr and got my test results. So far I have low blood pressure, low Vitamin D, low Iron, and a possibility of Celiac Disease! I have to go back to the lab today and have more bloodwork done so they can test for the Celiac Disease. WOW! The low blood pressure, iron , and Vitamin D explains alot of my symptoms. I have to start taking meds for all of those and hopefully that'll clear things up.

Anyhoo... here is today wordart freebie! Enjoy!

When the Hubby got home from work yesterday, Emma ran to the door to meet him. The first thing she said was "Can we go to Walmart Daddy?" She doesn't forget a thing. We all went in a had a little look around. We spent alot of our trip in the garden center looking at stuff to do our lawn. It's full of weeds and rocks and is in desperate need of some grass. This weekend the Hubby is going to kill the weeds and rake up the rocks and weeds. In 3 weeks we can plant the grass seed, then a few weeks after that, we should have a nice green lawn. Or the starts of one anyway. LOL.

I saw some really cute sandals for Emma but there was none in her size. I'll have to check back next week. I was also looking at some scrapbooking supplies to see if I could get some ideas for a new kit. I found the cutest pack of nameplates that got me thinking....the colors were very bright and summery.I think i'll have to go back and have another look today. Maybe inspiration will strike again. LOL.

Here is todays wordart. Enjoy!

Good Morning All! How is your day so far? Mine has been very uneventful. The kids woke up, we had breakfast, and now they're watching Handy Manny on the tv. Nothing exciting... yet. lol. You never know what can happen when you have 2 kids. lol. I don't know if I have ever mentioned this, but, Emma loves Walmart! Everytime we even drive on the same road it's on, she assumes we are going there. Last night we went to the bank and it's on the same street as the Walmart. Emma started singing "We're going to Walmart, We're going to Walmart". When she realized that we weren't, she pitched a major fit! Screamed, cried, kicked the seats, etc... for almost 20 minutes! So, today after Hubby gets home form work, i'm taking her to Walmart to buy some new summer shoes. She needs pretty sandals and so does Aiden. I had also promised her Dora sandals a few weeks ago and she reminds me everyday. You wouldn't say that she was only 3 years old if you heard some of the things she says. It's hilarious!

So... onto todays wordart. Hope you like this one. Enjoy.

Tuesday, June 9, 2009


Hi All! Hope you're having a great morning. I just got up about 20 minutes ago! I can't believe that the kids slept until 7 AM! They have been getting up lately by 5:30. This was a very welcomed change. Emma woke up last night at 12:30 with a bad dream and gotten into bed with the Hubby and I. She's only a little tiny thing but she takes up more room in my big Queen size bed than I do. Aiden came over at around 4 and snuggled down for a few hours too. I was so cozy and I had such sweet dreams.

So... that brings us to todays wordart. Enjoy!

Hi All. Hope you had a great weekend! Mine was pretty quiet. Stayed home and rested most of the weekend. I still feel pretty yucky. I have to go get some bloodwork and tests done tomorrow. SUCKS! But hopefully we'll soon know whats going on. I was feeling a little better yesterday so I decided that I would get a few wordart done for you all. It seems like forever ago that I gave you some. I got 8 new wordart for this week and part of next. They are all love/wedding/soul mate related. I have a kit in the works to correspond with the wordart but I just can't get around to it yet. I still haven't forgotten all of you wonderful ladies who posted your quotes for my contest... I'll get to thoses as soon as I can and let you know who won too.

Here is the first wordart. Hope you like it.

Hi! So sorry I haven't been around lately. I got back from vacation and have not been feeling very well. Actually, I haven't been well for a while now. I am still feeling yucky but hopefully after I see the Dr again, i'll know what's going on. In the meanwhile, i've been trying to catch up on some scrapping. I haven't scrapped in months now. I decided to take a little break from designing and try to catch up on a few things. I have created all of these really cute kits and thought it would be nice to make some layouts with them. I usually create my layouts 8x10 so when I print them, I can put them in my matted 10x13 frames. I also print them in 5x7 for the kids rooms. These new layouts are all using pictures from our vacation. I hope you like them.
