About Me

I am a 51 year old woman who in the past few years have been through one thing after another. Even though I see God's hand in it all it has and continues to be a difficult road. I feel I cannot be the only person thinking and feeling the way that I do. Maybe not all of you and its not my intention to offend yet to help. So if you disagree then lets agree to disagree. This is the truth as it applies to my life and we could differ. This is my journey and I pray that in some way it may be helpful for you or someone you know. God Bless you all on your journey whatever it may be.

Not much going on today. I worked most of the day getting my add-on kit ready to submit to get into the store. I was home alone with JP today too. So I felt like I was split in two trying to take care of him and also get work done.

I did get my mini kit finished for the TSG Blog. That took me a few hours. I used the kit that I made for the Color Challenge. It will make a great freebie Mini Kit. I really want to let people know how I design and what my style is turning out to be. It looks like my style is going to be a Bohemien style, grungy, flourishy, vintage. I may surprise you all once in a while with a out of the box kit. That is the whole joy of designing. You have the POWER!!! lol

Here is a picture of the mini kit and make sure you come by and visit me at The Scrapping Garden Blog. Go to http://www.scrappinggarden.com/ and then press the TSG Blog link. Now remember I am on the West Coast so I will be posting a little later.

Crazy time again. I have a feeling this will be my life for awhile. I have been really busy designing the rest of my Chocolate Silk Kit so I can get it all in my store for you. It will end up being a huge kit by the time I am finished. I will be listing the Kit that I made for the Color Challenge as a Lil Bud Kit and then I have a Paper Add-on that will have many more papers including some that look as though they have Chocolate Swirls on them. Yum. Then the element add-on. This will be one kit Im telling you!

Monday is our debut chat where our mentor Michelle Rodriquez will introduce us as new designers. Our debut Mega Kit - Great Beginnings will be unveiled and there will be fun and prizes. Come and join the fun at The Scrapping Garden/www.scrappinggarden.com in the chat room at 9PM Eastern time.

Well here is the Friday Freebie hope you enjoy and look for my Chocolate Silk Kits coming to The Scrapping Garden Site Soon! http://www.scrappinggarden.com/ .

Boy, things have been crazy the past few days. Not just with getting contracts signed and reading the handbook and designing, designing, designing but the weather! It is so unusual for Western Washington to be this cold. No school on Monday and Tuesday and more snow on the way. Crazy!

I finally got everything approved for my class and got my contributions in to the Mentoring leader. Wow, like I said crazy time. Getting everything ready to send to her. The hardest part was to get my links to work! Then finding out it was something stupid like forgetting to put .zip at the end of my link!!! Ugh!!!

Everything seems to be going good around the house. The only difficult thing is having John Paul home and trying to take care of him and design too. I am working on Getting my Chocolate Silk kit ready to put into the store. That way after our debut I will be able to get it right in the store so at least I have something in there. I will be disabling the link here for my mini kit and that will be going in the store. I also have a paper add-on and an element add-on that I am working on. I then will be getting a StiKit Kit ready to put in the store also. I am also working on a kit called Bearly Valentines Day. That will hopefully be coming out soon after the Chocolate Silk Set. I also am working on a Spring Kit called Bette's Butterflies in memory of my Sisters Mother in Law. It is coming along beautifully and is going to have tons of butterflies all over. I am hoping to put at least one butterfly in every kit I do as a rememberance to her. She was one of the most patient, Compassionate women I know.

I do have a layout share for today.

Here is a layout of me opening presents on Christmas Day 2007

PhotobucketI had a great time this past Christmas. I got so many goodies for my computer. It was amazing. I also got a new Lumapix Camera which takes the most awesome pictures. This picture was taken with that camera.

Here is a layout of my son John Paul. This is when he was 7 years old. He is now 1 going on 19.

Both of these layout are done with kits from Linda Cumberland. The top on is Whimsical Christmas Paper Pack and Element Pack and the bottom one is a stickit from Lindas Back to School kit. You can find them both at The Scrapping Garden, http://www.scrappinggarden.com/

Well, I have bent your ears long enough today. I plan on having a Friday Freebie this Friday. One from my new Valentines Kit. Hopefully it will wet your appetite for more.

See you on Friday!!
