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 have been very busy this week designing. I have gotten some of my mojo back. It seems to go in waves. So I take advantage when it is around so to speak!! lol

We took my son to the airport yesterday and he is on his way back to Kansas City. On the 5th of January he will be off to Iraq for one year. He is in the Navy but is on Collatoral Duty. He will be an advisor to the Iraq Military and will be well protected. The most dangerous part will be in the travel to and from the airport or any other assignments he might have. It also will depend on if he is at assigned to an Iraqi Base or an American Base. Please keep him in your prayers.

Here is a layout I completed this morning. My New Year's Resolution is to complete at least one layout a day if at all possible. I need to get so much scrapping done. When you are a designer it is hard to have the time to scrap too. So here you have made all of these awesome things and have nothing to show for it. I mean in ways of your own scrapping!! I also am trying to be more involoved in my home site. The Scrapping Garden. There are so many new things planned for this new year and there is a new excitement among all of the designers and Admin. It has been fun. Go check out what is going on and sign up for the Yahoo Group so you can keep well informed. http://www.scrappinggarden.com/ You will find a family of fellow scrappers and friends. I have been there for a year and a half and have not felt the need to go anywhere else. Of course there is a core group there that is really tight and those are the ones who keep everything running and come up with some great ideas.

Okay, I got off on a tangent again, what else is new huh? Okay here is the layout.

Happy New Year!!

I have made a few resolutions for 2009!! Nothing too big just a few goals. I want to be more involoved with The Scrapping Garden and get some more layouts finished. I have been paying a little more attention to my photography and have had a great time in the process. This month I am starting Cake Decorating Classes which I hope will prove to be fun. I am excited for the prospects of the new year! I am praying for improved health this year as last year was not too good of a year. I am now on a medication that I really pray will help me and not cause problems like the Lyrica did.

Anyways, enough of that. I am sure you are more interested in what I have planned for you my clients this year. I am starting a newsletter. If you are interested please leave me a comment with your email and I will be glad to add you. I can easily edit your information before I publish your comment or if you prefer not publish it at all. You let me know. I am glad to comply to your wishes.

I also want to start a free dialouge with you in reference to my kits and freebies. Is there something you like or do not like. Is there something you would like to see. Let me know by a comment or above in my little message box. I want to make my kits something that you will love and use over, over, and over again. Do you like kits that have been seperated into paper packs, element packs and add-ons, Or do you prefer it all together in one kit. This is where you get to tell me what you prefer.

I do have a new kit out. It is called Christmas Time. It has something for everyone. some plain patterned paper and some paper that has been hard distressed. Vintage and modern pieces. Enough for a mini album or a whole album.


You can find it here:http://www.scrappinggarden.com/shop/product.php?productid=17903&cat=0&page=1 It is $3.75 I know you will get a lot of use out of it.

I made a QP for you using my Christmas Time kit and a few pieces from my Victorian Christmas Add-on. I hope you enjoy it. And lets have an awesome new year! There is so much new thing coming up in the new year at the Scrapping Garden. make sure you come by and check out the challenge fourm and find out. I will be blogging more about them and posting about them as they go along.
Well, I am sure you want your freebie now. lol
