Twice in a Week!

Whoa! Twice in one week! I think I peed a little! Just kidding. I got to play a little recently and I made a cute album for a coworker who is having a baby. The baby is a girl and her name will be Jolie. I used the Jolie Chocolat paper from SEI. So cute! As it turns out, the baby's room is pink and chocolate too. I'll post a picture soon.

Got a big birthday celebration this weekend. Jake turns eighteen tomorrow. Saturday we will have a BBQ here and celebrate with family and friends. Hard to believe I was going into labor in a couple hours 18 years ago. Time flies.

I'll try to catch up again on Monday.

Peace out, Dogs.

Remember me? I'm the retard who keeps promising to post... Well, here I am! Better late than never!

Ok, so here's what's new. I left my teaching job at GT. It was time. It just wasn't a good fit for me and the way I work. I wish Kelly and Paula their best in the business.

My grand-nephew was born in January! Sweet and perfect little Jovani Luke! I've already scrapped 2 pages for him!

My boys are happy and healthy right now. Jake is gearing up for graduation. We just received senior pictures, bought senior ball tickets, and are planning his eighteenth birthday party. (sniff, sniff) Nick has a girlfriend, and has been to a dance or two himself, and working hard at weights after school, and gearing up for football season. (I can't wait!) Dave is the wonderful and loyal husband as always. He's my rock.

Recently, I was extremely flattered to be asked to join the fabulous teachers at The Stamp Art Shoppe in Roseville. I will be teaching a card class over the summer there. I'm so excited! Wish me luck! Come and see me!
The picture above is a "heart quilt" that I made with the "Hey Sugar" paper collection from Cosmo Cricket, and some Grunge Board from Ranger, as well as some bits and pieces from other companies. I got the idea from the Jan/Feb issue of Scrapbooks Etc. It was fun to make and I learned that it works better if you keep the squares simple because it gets busy when they are all together.
I am wishing for some free time to play. It's just been busy, busy, busy. Work, kids, chores. No time to play! I can keep wishing...
Talk to you soon! (I promise!)
