On a Roll...

Wow, I can barely believe it myself, but I have really enjoyed scrapbooking again. The reason I say it like that is because aside from my recent Imaginisce assignment, I just haven't been feeling it lately. I think that is why I have been stretching my wings into mixed media art and sketching. Yet, here I am, 2 1/2 months later and I find myself drawn towards all my scrap goodies once again. Take a look at these....

I hope you are inspired to pull out your scrap stash....come on and scrap with me!!!! I think my next challenge to myself will be to stamp and make more cards! That may be a breeze for you but it is actually a little bit of a stretch for me...not in my comfort bubble. Before all is said and done, I intend to have had a hand in many crafty projects!!!!!

Well, off to watch American Idol!!!!!

Did you Know????

Hi Friends!!!! Did you know that I was published in the November issue of Scrapbook Trends? Needless to say I was thrilled to see my work in print!!!!

Did you know that I once studied for Nursing???? I currently have 70 hrs. towards an associate's nursing degree. But, my disc herniated and things kept getting worse with my back that I decided to just put that dream on the back burner. Now I don't see me ever finishing, but I will always have a love for medicine and the nursing profession.

Did you know that after living in Texas for almost 8 years now, I finally took pictures of one of my children in the Bluebonnets???? I knew my boys would never want to sit and pose in the flowers so I grabbed Abigail after school the other day and drove over to a patch of Bluebonnets.

Did you know that I am a closet smoker??? I feel like those women from long ago who would only smoke in the privacy of their own homes and "Lord forbid if anyone found out". Yes, I am a closet smoker and am in the process of trying to quit. It is a tough battle but I am making great strides.

So, I think in an effort to try and purge myself of my thoughts, dreams, habits (good or bad), and desires, I am going to have "Did you Know" Mondays. I think as women, we  need each other for support and kindness...truth and love. We need to let each other know that in this journey we call life, that we are not alone.

I hope you have a wonderful start to a fabulous week ahead!!!! Get creative, get inspired, or go to a quiet place and find your inner artist that allows you to craft, scrap, paint, or whatever your heart desires!!!!!

Happy Easter!!!!!

Good Sunday Morning Friends and welcome to my blog post!!!! I am so thrilled to be celebrating this day, the day my Saviour was Raised from the tome, the stone was rolled away and He Lives!!!! I hope that all of you are enjoying this day with those who are special to you.

Today, I just wanted to share a few things I have been up to this weekend. I have kind of been taking a hiatus from scrapping...recharging my batteries and learning something new. But, I felt the tug to my table and was ready to tackle a few pages. Here is what I did....

I had so much fun playing with all of my scrappy stash....mostly unused kits that I have not been able to play with yet except for my Studio Calico stuff.

Well, that is all for now...Have a fantastic Easter Sunday!!!!
Hugs, xoxoxox
