How long has it been?

Wow, everyday life sure has gotten in the way of my blogging!  Seems like i never have a minute to myself anymore. 

There has been so much going on!  I’ve enjoyed a great three months on TallyScrapper’s design team.  I really hate to see it come to an end, but there are some really talented ladies trying out, so I can’t wait to see who the next team will be.  Thank you TallyScrapper for making my first DT experience a great one!

I have plenty still to keep me busy though.  Check THIS out:  GutterGirlz!  I’m a design team member for GutterGirlz and you have to check us out!  Here’s what the site is all about:

“Ever wish that you could BE who you wanted to, to SAY what you felt like saying? To USE what you want to use when you create? Are you already free? Do you say what you want to, and fly the finger at anyone who tells you that you CAN’T use something because it’s not acid free? IF you answered yes to any of those questions, then we’d like to welcome you to the gutter!! A place where you are free to BE. Free to DO.”

You simply must check us out!  Come on and get real with us!  The new challenge is up June 30 so show us your art!

Personally, I have started a new job and so far so good.  Very happy with it and the way it’s headed.  And I think paychecks every two weeks is a huge plus!  I hated getting paid once a month with my old job.

Jake!  Man, is he growing up!  I look at my baby at times and I don’t see a baby anymore.  His baby face has turned into this boy child’s face, slim and angled with no baby fat anymore.  He’s getting taller by the minute it seems and the feet!  I’m not sure how I’ll keep him in shoes!  And now he cares about things I’d never thought he’d care about.  Like his hair!  Check it out!  He came home from Snip-its the other day with this new “style.” 

Can you tell it’s spiked in the front?  Same cut I think, but the lady “styled” it for him.  Good grief!  He’s just not supposed to care about this kind of thing yet!  I know I keep saying that, but dang!

Oh!  Big news is Scrapping from the Heart is having it’s 3rd charity crop on July 12, 2008 at Scrapbook Creations in Spartanburg, SC.  The proceeds will benefit SOAR Academy here in Spartanburg, a facility for children with special needs.  If you are in our area, please consider joining us.  Check out our website for more details and for more information about SOAR Academy!

Okay, so I promise not to stay away so long if I can possibly help it.  I’ll leave you with some of my most recent layouts.  Some of these were done with the awesome kits from TallyScrapper, who by the way, is having a cyber crop this weekend and will be ringing in the new design team Monday at midnight! PST, I believe.  And the new kit coming out July 15 was designed by Tally’s own Leah Crow…and let me just say…freaking awesome!!! 

One more thing!  Since I’ve not been good about keeping up with things, how about a peace offering?  Leave a comment and tell me your summer vacation plans and I’ll draw for a scrappy prize! 

PS: Not sure why Jake’s pic is showing up again, and I can’t figure it out so sorry about that!  I’m off to bed!  Thanks for reading!

My Poems for 06/02 and 06/03 – I am {I}nspired Blog

If you haven’t checked out thismonth’s challenge on I am {I}inspired, then please do.  We’re challenging you to write poetry this week, one poem a day for a total of five.

Here are my attempts for Monday:

I’d lost a friend over silliness for sure,
and afterwards I simply could not get over her.
Fourteen years went by like the wind.

I thought I was over everything,
had moved on in my life, but I couldn’t let it go.
I wrote that e-mail and clicked “send.”

That empty space I had is no longer empty.
She’d felt the same way all this time, and missed me, too.
I have my sister again; I have my friend.


And my poem written today:

Sparkling blue eyes
Your smile is a treat
Popsicle on his face
Dirty boy feet
Cars and bikes
Riding scooters on the street
Soccer and tennis
No matter the heat
Bath time and giggles
There’s dinner to eat
Bedtime hugs and kisses
My heart skips a beat
I love you my son
My baby so sweet

How’d I do?
