Check Out All Moments Remembered

Put in for the DT for these guys some time ago, but my email never made it. Weird, it didn't get kicked back either. It's a great place. They chose their DT already (pubcalls had the wrong closing date!), so I didn't get to tryout :-(! But that's okay, I've still got plenty to keep me busy anyway. Check out their site under my favs!!

After the Storm

Well, I know it's late, but Merry Christmas!!!! It's a crazy time. Everyone around our house is still sick. I think we're just reinfecting each other now. Luckily the weather has warmed up enough to open up the house and air it out. Broke out the disinfectant cleaners and sprays today too. Gotta get everyone well!!!

Still working on my daily calendar. No pictures yet. Finished making my Christams album. Just have to put in pictures and journaling. I've got the crud too. Gonna go to bed now. See ya soon . . . . .

Busy, Busy, Busy!!!!

The kids are finally getting well, it seems. We had the Brownie Christmas party on Saturday. It was great! Everyone brought games and we all learned to play some new ones and replay some old ones. It's hilarious to watch a bunch of nine year olds play twister.

Just finishing up Christmas presents. I did 4x4 mini books for the kids teachers. Did a Texas star with the kids pictures for auntie.

I did this Advent calendar for the kids to help them "see" how many days left to Christmas. I'm going to modify that theme and do a generic calendar where we can post the day, month and day of the week to help my little ones keep track of the days!! More on that when it's done!

Busy Time of Year

This is such a wonderful, busy time of year! Cookies and other goodies to bake, presents to make or purchase and wrap, decorating, Christmas cards, Community Service Projects, School plays and parties (not to mention my princess' Birthday 12/06). This has always been my favorite time of year. I have sooooo many wonderful family memories of cooking and decorating with my Mom and Sister (my BBF).

Just added Say It With Letters link here. Love their site, just missed it the other day when I was updating and changing things. You've gotta see their products - AWESOME!!!

May this be an especially blessed time of year for you and yours. Please take the time to slow down, listen to Christmas carols; maybe sing a few, if you are so inclined - I know my Mom was :-), enjoy the company of those you love and who love you and reflect upon the true meaning of the season. God Bless and Happy Holidays.

The Results

Well, I didn't make the cut in the Heart in Hand Scraps DT call. There were a lot of wonderful entries, I'm glad I didn't have to make that decision!

Everything happens for a reason, though, so I don't sweat it. Besides, I'm happy to announce I am on the Design Team for ScrapBooks 'N Stickers! You can view their store at

My term with ScrapBook Fever has officially ended, though my submissions are still on display and the website. Unsure if that gig will continue next year or not.
