Cards Magazine Blog Challenge

Hello folks! Hope your day is better than mine. I’ve had a stiff neck and upper right shoulder since Monday and I am not a very happy camper (it’s just a bit of an inconvenience since I have a lot to do which requires my right arm). BUT, as long as I don’t do sudden moves or reach up high or down low, I can still create {::SMILES}. This month WPlus9 is sponsoring Card’s Magazine blog challenge and based on the lovely sketch by Dawn, I came up with the above card. Do join us because there is a set

Christmas Day 3 + 10 Min Craft Dash

I can’t remember the last time I did a color challenge. Back in the days (feels like ages ago), I used to do 2-3 of them a week and it was during those times that I met most of my current blog friends. Always great fun and I am hoping to get back into it again… or at least participate in the ones that my (old) blog friends are hosting on a more regular basis. The other day, Dawn from WPlus9, emailed us a challenge that WPlus9 is sponsoring and while I know Paulina, I have no idea about this

Not Sure Which Is Worse

Being the mom of a good gymnast and hoping that her daughter sticks all her moves so that she can get one of the medals or the mom of the girl who just learned her moves and wishing that her daughter can just complete the competition without tears. I was that later mom today and I think I quit breathing each time M did her routine. Even though we knew that Emma had a minuscule chance of winning a medal (note: she’s not a lazy gymnast, she’s new to “real” gymnastics and still playing catch up still with girls her

Poo

Back in the days, mostly before Jovie was born, I used to talk about poo every so often. I think somebody even said (jokingly) that I probably had one of the most poo blog posts {::SMILES}. So today, just for old time sakes, I want to share this older but still happy news: Jovie is completely potty trained. She did her first toilet poo on July 24th. She cried each time she wanted to go after that, for about a week and a half (or maybe more… it’s been about two weeks now since she’s been ok with the whole

Hello

Lookie, lookie, a card! I’ve been neglecting my craft room. Mostly because I need to do some major purging and I have not been motivated to do it. I should though. It’s feeling a bit crowded and I think it’s about time I part with my 2008 paper. I’ve been feeling guilty about not scrapbooking as often as I used to. So many Jovie pictures I need to do and of course there’s still always something new with Emma to scrapbook about. I can’t clean this coming week but after the 5th I should not have any lame excuse.

And She’s Off

To school… First day of (intro to) pre-school today. She was so excited to go. We’ve been pumping her up for it you see. And one of her best friend was there and the moment she saw him, she was hooked on school! I was worried that she might freak out when I left but she didn’t. I said goodbye, she didn’t even acknowledge me, and off I went. I stayed for tea in the next building and left 30 minutes later. So here I am, blogging in peace (when I should probably be cleaning). Ahhh… the girls are growing
