Totally Simple!!

Tonight we are having a teacher appreciation party/workshop for our teachers in Primary.  I made 26 of these simple cards to give to the teachers so they can send them to children who are absent on a Sunday.  They were really simple & I just used my scraps with white cardstock.

P-A-D #4 & I'm HUNGRY!!!

Hi everyone!!

Today my 2 little boys are at Mother's Day Out so I have been busy trying to get things done. You wouldn't believe how fast laundry piles up with a family of 7, especially when the mom has a cold and doesn't feel like doing it!! Well, today I am trying to redeem myself with my family by helping them to have clean clothes. LOL. I am actually feeling a lot better and am not needing the meds as much.

On another note, I started doing Weight Watchers again yesterday. I am doing really well except that I am STARVING right now!! My DH & I went to Applebees today for lunch and they had a nice WW meal on the menu. It was very tasty but I guess I am just used to eating more. I am going to need a lot of luck with this again. I just love to eat!!! Probably as much as I like to stamp & scrap!!

Here is the page I made yesterday for my Page A Day challenge. 4 days in a row is not too shabby!! I used Pooh Font & Pooh & Friends. Enjoy!

DS's Scrapbook Page

I just finished this SB page of one of my boys. I didn't realize until I was finished that I put "but" instead of "put" in the journaling. Oh well, I'm just going to leave it. It will show him later on how I am not perfect. :)

I used Cricut cartridge Locker Talk for the die cuts and Stampin' Up! cardstock and paper for everything else. :)

Time for Fall!

September 21st is my favorite day of the year. It is the official first day of Fall which is my favorite season. I love it when the leaves turn pretty colors on the trees, the wind smells brisk, and scented candles burn in my house. I love to pull out my sweaters and wear fuzzy socks around my house. I just love pretty much everything about it.

What is your favorite season?? Why??

Here are two cards I made today that were going to be in a video but I realized that after I was halfway through I had not hit "record". Ooops!! I thought I would just share them together anyway. They are both using the same color theme & sketch just a different stamp set. I hope you enjoy!!

Hi everyone! This video took me longer than any other video I've made. There was A LOT of editing involved. Maybe some day I'll make a bloopers video with my out takes. That would be a hoot!!

I just thought I would share what my daughters and their friends do to my baby boy when I'm not looking. He is really cute in a mullet, though. :)

Coming along....

I'm not as overwhelmed as I was before, which is a really good thing.  I am just unpacking one box at a time.  I just need to run to Hobby Lobby to get a few more paper racks and I should be set.  Here is what I have accomplished so far...

Wednesday, September 03, 2008


Okay, I am officially finished unpacking in our new house besides my Pink Loft.  I tried to tackle it a bit today and was just a little overwhelmed.  It will have to wait for another day or days.  Here are some pics I took a few minutes ago.  I think as soon as I get everything out of boxes it won't be such a big deal but for now all I see are those big brown things sitting in the middle of the room!!!
