More Projects

Just busy, busy, busy with projects and deadlines! It is all fun stuff though!
I am trying to pacify myself until Marches Scarlet Lime kit gets here.
Hopefully it will get here tomorrow PLEASE! LOL!
Hubby will be getting off of work early due to working at the branch here in
Pahrump so that means more family time. We have started a new business
venture that you all may want to check out. I will be giving more details on
about it later. We are SUPER excited and it gives us the opportunity to do
something that I have been dreaming about my whole life!!!
God is just working out so many things for us right now in ways that we
couldn't have imagined. Sometime next year we will be out of the country
for two weeks. We were invited to do our first missionary trip!!! It will probably
invovle our music ofcourse and just being able to connect with others around
the globe and share the love of Christ. We are very excited about that as
Be Blessed all!!!

Zee Haircut....

Hiya everyone! It was a blah Monday today but isn't every
Monday. Just stop by to share Jadons very FIRST haircut!!!
As you can see in the before photo this little one had LOTS
of hair. We finally decided to let him get it cut. He was so
not for it at first but after a balloon and a girl scout cookie he
was good to go. Now he REALLY looks like daddy!
I am working on PCI's tutorial to go out on the 15th along
with the winner of the RAK for Februarys project. There
is also going to be some new fun things that I am adding as
well. This is just a reminder. My life is FULL of projects
from DT goodies to working on getting published finally. I
am SO bad with submitting but all that is about to change
NOW. I would also like to thank all who stop by to visit my
little corner of the world. It is so good to know that I have
creative friends around the world who share more than just
the love of but also the love of Christ. What a blessing you
all are!
Be Blessed!

Been thinking a lot about time since my stepfather passed and since
OLW has a time challenge I thought it only right to create a time page.
I know that there is a time for everything. Sometimes it just hurts.

Hello, I've Got Somethin to Tell You....

ok, maybe several things but all positive. I will be joining the Mojo Holder
lovlies here,, next week or so!
I get to have some scraplifting fun as I join their team of SUPER
talented ladies. Hey, it's not all about what you get but what you give
so I am giving inspiration. That is enough motivation for me. The
next bit of news is actually secret news so I really can't say anything
right now about it. I am REALLY excited about though! It is coming up
real soon so you all won't have to wait very long to find out.
Next we have an AWESOME sponsor for this month of March Around The
Block! YAAAY Scrap Shanty!!! They were SUPER generous!!! I created a card using some of their
products and sketch # 54 from CPS and the Happy page you see up top.
There is TONS more to come so keep a look out.
I think that is it for now all.
Be BLessed!!!

This past Thursday, as some of you might know, my Stepfather
passed away. For the last couple of days it all seems so sureal and
I can't seem to wrap my mind completely around the whole
passing just yet. He had been quite ill for many years and the doctors
said that it was a miracle how his body held on for so long. My Stepfather
Michael, had been battling many serious health problems and was in
so much pain that it would be selfish of us to want him to stay in living
in this world like that. Everyone has been asking how am I and all I
can say is that it is a happy sad time. I rejoice because he surrendered
in the latter part of his life to God and that he is no longer in pain and suffering.
I mourn simply because he is not here anymore. What I remember most
about my Stepfather is his love for math, cooking, and art. We spent a great
deal of time in art talk when his health wasn't so poor and he would always
tell me if I wanted him to teach me his recipes he would love to do so. My
heart breaks knowing that it will never come to pass now. I think that I would
have been a top notch chef after he was through with me.
The Word says that there is a time for everything. May God be with my
Mother, Jonathan (Michael's son), Stephanie(Michael's daughter), my sisters,
and other family members and friends in this great time of mourning.
May God be our great comforter.

Mid last week one of my lovely fellow designers at ScrapShanty
told me about this REALLY COOL picture editing site!
I was whining over the fact that I didn't have photoshop. It is
just WAY out of our range right now but picnik is FREE. I played
around with it a little bit and it is AMAZING! I just may do the
premium membership which is only like $24.00 a year! That is WAY
within our range and you get WAY more features. Thanks Mikki!
This cheered me up a little bit.
I have not forgotten about PCI's drawing for FEB. It may be some
time today or tomorrow before I get to it but I will get to it.
There is also going to be some great new things being added to PCI!
I want it to be more interactive so stay tuned for that and this months
Be Blessed!
