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.

I feel so bad that I didnt get a Friday Freebie posted. If you came by to pick one up and it wasnt here again I am sorry. On Thursday I had a flu and pnemonia shot and I am having a hec of a reaction. I have been sweating profusely for three days and have had horrible body aches. I am having a difficult time keeping myself hydrated because of sweating so much. I have never had so much problems with shots before. Usually all I get is a sore arm. I feel sick and tired of being sick and tired!! It seems that I just get feeling better and then something else happens! Wow, cant believe it.

Make sure to check out the TSG blog at www.thescrappinggarden.blogspot.com. It is the 12 days of Christmas giveaway and you will get a piece of Kakedesigns kit each day and they will also be giving away the alphabet that I made to go along with it. It is a beautiful kit. I love Karen's work.

Have a nice weekend and I will try to get a freebie posted on Monday if I am feeling better. I am hoping I will.

This is the newest kit that I have been working on. It is the promtional kit for The Scrapping Garden(http://www.scrappinggarden.com/). In January if you purchase $10.00 of merchandise from the site store you will receive this fun Vintage January Kit. I love this kit and it will have many, many uses for you to do. In the next few days I will make a QP for you using this cute kit. It is exclusive to TSG.

In fact if you check out TSG's Blog you will find many surprises there. Lots of fun stuff!! Our 12 days until Christmas starts tommorrow I believe where there will be many fun events for you to participate in. I know you all will have loads of fun there. I found TSG in May of 2007. I have never left and probably never will.

Lately I am getting the itch to do some paper scrapping and will probably pick up some of my paper goods and make some pages for my mom for Christmas. I most likely will not get in time for Christmas but I will still have a great time making them and passing them on to her. She has tons of pictures for all of us growing up etc and has not done anything with them so this will help her to just stick those pics down and that is that!! I also am working on a mini album for them. It will be of our Christmas together this year since my son will be here for about a week before going to Iraq.

I have finally found some peace in turning my son over to the care of God. It is the only thing that is keeping me sane. When I start to worry or freak out I stop turn it over to God and then get busy doing something!! It always helps. At first it was sooo hard but now it is getting so easy and I dont take the worry back as often.

Well, I guess that is all today! Make sure to check back tomorrow as it is sure to be a Friday Freebie day!!

I had so much problems posting on my blog yesterday that I gave up!! I dont know what the problem was but things kept deleting themseleves and I couldnt believe it. I wanted to through my puter against the wall. When I get to that point I have to stop, take a deep breath and stop what I am trying to do. It is not the end of the world. So you will receive the freebie that you would have gotten yesterday.

Here is a wonderful QP that I made with a collab kit that I did with Marsha for our monthly chat challenge we have. It was sad because no one ended up posting any layouts so these QP's went to waste. So I decided to go ahead and give them away on my blog. Here is the preview of that QP.

Here is the link to pick it up at. This is a personal use only QP and not shareable. If you think a friend will like it then send them here to get it. Thank you in advance to adhering to this request. www.scrappinggarden.com/april/als_fallflourish_postingbonus02.zipPlease leave me some love if you like the QP I miss getting messages and comments on my blog. :( Dont you feel sorry for me hehehe.

Whew!! I think I have finally gotten my Christmas shopping finished!! My DH's birthday is on Jan 1st so I have his b-day present all ready too!! I got him an 8gb Nano and a stero system for it also. It is a Sony and has a CD player with it also. I am sure it will end up being mostly for the whole family. At least the stero part as we no longer have anyway to play music except in our vehicles. I was hoping to have another freebie for you today but for some reason I am having problems with my hotmail account and photobucket. It is taking so long for it to load up that it is kicking me off of them. GRRRR!!!...

I appreciate all of the comments I got on my pictures of Mira. I was very surprised when I popped them up on the computer and they came out so well. With just a little photo shopping mostly with the levels they were amazing!!! I still have tons of presents to wrap and cards to get out which I dont know if that will happen yet. If I am able to get my programs to work properly I will get a freebie posted later.

Take care all and have a great day!!

Sorry it's been so long!!

Sorry it has been so long since I last posted anything. My life has turned topsy turvie and I have not had any time at all to post anything!! I have gotten more involved with taking pictures and recently have taken so awesome photos of my Great-Niece. I will share them with you now!





I am learning to take my camera off of program and use Manual which means f-stops and the whole shi-bang!!

Anyways, enough of that I have a small freebie for you from my First Frost Kit extras that did not make it into the kit. So without further ado here it is:


Here is the link: www.scrappinggarden.com/april/als_firstfrost_paper34.zip

I am going to try real hard to keep up with my blog now and have more freebies for you in the coming weeks. I definitely know that after Jan. 1, I will be freed up with more time to work on my blog. I hope that everyone's Thanksgiving was great and you got enough turkey to last you until next year. I know I did!! LOL Have a wonderful day and enjoy the freebie!
