Change of Plans

July 30, 2008

I was so relieved yesterday to get a call from my sister saying they are not moving in to their apartment until Friday.  Phew!  That clears up my day a lot and Arthur and I plan to have some fun today. We are hanging out with dear old MOMS club pals at the park and doing a little swimming on the lake.  Arthur is a little daredevil so we are bringing his life jacket for sure! He thinks he’s invincible.

I just uploaded some photos from last week on the computer so I decided I want to post some of my favorites.  My little man is a charmer- he likes the ladies, LOL.  Anyways he is always telling me how cute a girl is or how pretty their hair is and he likes their pink clothes.  Stuff like that.  Well a friend of mine (a friend for almost 4 years now) has a 2 year old and Arthur is smitten by her.  he held her hand and they were inseparable at the park the other day.  In this photo you can see why she likes her so much.  She has the cutest pigtails too.

Here is another photo photo from church at Sunday.  He was outside enjoying the flowers (he loves flowers!)

OK well peace, love, happiness and all that other stuff.

I am just sitting around enjoying my coffee this morning. Ah,  sweet nectar of life.  I love my coffee- I feel it is near impossible to live without.  When the day is almost over I know the next morning will start out wonderfully because I will have my coffee in hand.

I have so much to do to get ready for the 1st.  It is always the busiest time of month and this month is no exception.  Even busier. In addition to all of my design stuff and site stuff I need to get ready- I am helping my siblings (3 of them) move into an apartment starting Wednesday.  My sister just had a baby in March and she is currently in my ex-step mom’s house, but Wednesday she is moving in with two of my brothers and her baby.  This should be fun right?

Today should be my most restful day.  Early this morning I am taking my son out to the movie theatre to watch a free kids movie.  We have a choice of Happy Feet or Veggie Tales- The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything.  Arthur is set on Veggie Tales so that’s what we should see,  provided we can get shoes on both feet before we rush out of the door.

After that- I need to start a crock pot roast being I will not be home this evening with the hubby and son. Yes, lucky lucky me- I get to spend the evening with the girls for a mom’s night out at a small Mexican restaurant here. If I get there before 7, I can make happy hour, hee hee.

In the digi world- I am working on getting together our Featured Designer kit for Live Out Loud Scraps.  Our FD this month is a great designer and she is so sweet.  She has a fun and playful side to her designs.  Bet you can’t wait to see who she is, but alas you must wait.

This Friday I am also releasing the cutest baby kit- and a little sunny mini kit too at Shabby Pickle Designs. Plus I should have a little freebie on Friday too, so you should definitely check back 😉 

Here is a tiny sneak peek at my newest kit:

Blog Revival!

July 25, 2008

Ok so I have not blogged in almost a year and blog was in desperate need of attention.  I didn’t even remember my blog addy!  How sad is that?  One of my CT actually linked me up and I discovered I did know my login name and password.  Cool huh?

Well lots has happened since I last blogged- I opened up shop with Victoria Feemster at Live Out Loud Scraps and I am now a proud designer at Shabby Pickle Designs!  I feel like God has truly blessed me in being able to get my name and my designs out there and although I have been design 2 and a half years now and still not as popular as some newer names I know that it takes time.

I am featured designer for Bella Scraps Magazine this month!  Wahoo!  I created a full sized kit exclusive to the magazine called S.S. Paradise.  I feel like it was perfect for the time of year, being that many enjoy cruises and summer vacations. 

I also just released two new kits just this morning! the fun thing about new releases at Shabby pickle is that on release days you can pick up the kits that day at 20% off!
