Just Random

Last weekend hubby said that if people clean like I do they’ll never get anything done. After I thought about it I guess he’s right. It’s day three and the house isn’t any better than it was Sunday when I started. I kept stopping – stopping just cause – and taking craft breaks. The other night hubby was here in my craft room watching Netflix and he looked at my box of cards and said: “You are obsessed with making cards. After you’re done you just toss them in that box.” You know all the cards that I’ve made the

Hello and Goodbyes

Goodbyes are rarely easy, doesn’t matter if they’re with friends, families, co-workers, or jobs (it was even tough parting with my work’s Mac Tower and 30″ monitor!). I’ve had a few goodbyes in this life, especially lately because of hubby’s job, but we all know that if we really want to one day we’ll meet again. Although starting something new is exciting it can be tough at times to quit what you have so that you can start that new thing. Today I sent in two emails. Both were resignation emails. One to Sweet Shoppe and another to the DigiChick.

The Almost Perfect Bag

I think this week will roll by pretty quick for us. It’s already Tuesday and I thought it was just Saturday yesterday! Today’s post I want to share a little simple card above using Mojo Monday’s sketch and digital paper from the DigiChick by Nikki Epperson: Remember These Days, and I want to show you something that the hubby got for me… a yellow camera-handbag! I’ve been wanting a new bag for a while. When I was still working, one of my friends and I talked about handbag shopping but we never did. Yellow’s my most favorite color and last

The Perfect Pair

After a long blog break it takes me a while to get back into it and into project making. But, being a part of a few teams (they make me feel like I’m not totally unemployed, ha!) have been useful in terms of motivation. So today I am participating in the Perfect Pair Blog Hop and on this post I will be showcasing Creative Cuts and More‘s fun die-cuts, the Apron Pocket and Self Closing Box, and Clear and Simple Stamps‘ Christmas set called Cookie Bake. There are two prizes to be won and IF you came to this post via

Sept 11th

Today I have a card using the new Waltzingmouse sketch. It’s a simple one and this is my interpretation of it. As for the title… even though my spiritual believes don’t put a lot of weight on the body and what happens to it after the soul has left it I respect what an individual has done in his/her lifetime. Granted that we weren’t in NY it was still something we thought about when we were visiting the largest European American cemetery: Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery on Sept. 11th. Here are some pictures from that day. Since hubby was at school

Busy Busy…

Just a few days before the trip and I have a list of last minute stuff. Since it’s just the girls and I there’s nobody else to rely on but me, myself, and I in terms of what to bring… or what makes it to the car. I have to remember to bring the important stuff and not be like our California trip where I left my camera on the kitchen counter. AURGH!!! That was the worst photographic trip ever!! Also, even though a drive to hubby’s family in Mississippi is a lot longer than our we’ll be passing through
