I applied to sell at Faith Sisters - need your help!

* if you are looking for the QP freebie - scroll down one post *

Hey everyone!! I'm so excited about a site where I have applied to be a designer. It is and it is a faith based digital scrapbooking site. It is sooo cool and they have all sorts of things that are different from other sites such as a prayer forum, a gallery for kids to post layouts and much more. All potential designers had to design a mini kit for their birthday celebration and mine is up! I would love for you to go leave a comment for me and download my kit - it's free!!! You will have to register in their gallery to leave a comment and download, but it would help my chances, so I would be so grateful if you all could help me out!! I sooo want to be a designer at their site! Also on August 29th everyone registered at their site can cast their vote for who they think should win the position - PLEASE vote for me ;)

Anyway - other than that, I have just been getting ready for Kaylee to start school. She got the teacher that she wanted so badly, so that was a blessing. This year she will even switch classes 3 times for different subjects and all her teachers seemed wonderful! I'm really looking forward to a great year for her! Zachary's meet the teacher night is Thursday and I can't wait. I'm just so thankful that we actually got him potty trained so that he can attend. Thanks for all your prayers about that one!!!!!

If any of you have checked out the store at CLD, you will notice it is down. They are upgrading and we have a lot planned for the re-grand opening - so be on the lookout! I'm working on some things for that as we speak. Also GDWI grand opening is in a couple of weeks - it's all just so exciting! One more thing to be watching for is a blog train that my CT and I are working on. Right now it is scheduled for Sept 5th and a few days after that. You will be able to get some great quick pages from my Dino-Roar kit - and best of all - they will all be FREE!! If you are wondering - we will have pages with no dinos as well as ones with - I love to have flexible kits and I'm looking forward to showing that with this event.

Also - Aug 30th is my Christmas Card Workshop from 1PM to 5PM. If you haven't signed up and still want to, please e-mail me asap so I can get everything ordered for you!!!

Ok - I'll be done now - now that I've written a book- hehe. I'm just so excited about everything going on right now and I feel so blessed. I hope you all have a great start to the new week and I'll write again soon!

From Sad to Glad

What a difference a day makes! I found out that I was accepted as a designer at and I am sooo excited! Thanks for the support and kind words from everyone.

Rachel - it is so good to hear from you!!! I hope everything is going great for you! I enjoy seeing you on the forums and hearing from you here.

Not much else going on. I'm looking forward to a fun time at Joni's crop on Friday night, then I'm going to her open house on Saturday (I even get to go early since I hosted a class for her in the last year - hehe - yippee!!!).

I'll keep this one short and sweet - odd for me, I know, but I just had to share my excitement!

A Sad, Sad Day

It's true - is closing it's shoppe! I am sooooooo sad! It was my first digital shoppe and it felt like home - all comfy and cozy and a safe place to be - and now it is going away. I totally understand why Amanda is having to do this, and I support her 100%, but it is still sad. I'm still selling at and am working on finding a second store to sell at, but another site will have a lot to live up to to fill PPF's shoes. Ok - enough of my sob story.

On a brighter note, I have really made myself determined to make this designing thing work, and have shared that with my CT, and they have responded wonderfully! They are all so supportive and ready to help any way they can. It has been just the uplifting that I need!

Kaylee and I got to have another Mom-Daughter day with Miss Joni! We had a blast and enjoyed our new fav pizza - the natural with roasted red peppers and tomatoes - YUMMY! We also watched the olympics while we made some very cute projects that Joni brought back with her from the Stampin' Up convention. Thanks Joni for opening your home to us and providing Kaylee and I with some wonderful bonding time - although, I do have to say that this last time Kaylee may have done more bonding with Bobbie's dog, Favre, then she did with me - hehe - but seriously - it was a wonderful day!

That's about all for now - so . . .

New Kit and Upcoming Workshop

Hey all! I have finished a new digital kit called "Dino-Roar". I have put the preview up on the right side and I'd love to hear your comments or requests for future kits. This was a fun one and I was happy with it and hope it will be a popular kit.

Since my last post, I have redone my scrapbook room. I have a shelving system on the entire back wall and have moved everything except my stamp caddy off the table, which means I was able to put the 2nd table away and just have the one table - yeah! Now you can see the skirt I made for the table - hehe! Now if I can just get the matching curtains done and put up - lots of luck there - rofl! Someday when I get it looking like I want - I will take a pic and put it up so you can see.

Monday night, I got to have a spur of the moment evening with Amanda and we had such a good time. After Robby got home, we went and had dinner at Outback Steakhouse (one of my fav restaurants!), then we went to the mall to walk around. You know, for the longest time, I had not gone to the mall, mainly because it is a nightmare keeping up with a 3 year old boy and keeping him from touching everything or knocking everything down. But lately, I have been able to go walk around a mall several times with each of my best friends, Lori, Cindy, and Amanda - and it has been a blast. I almost forgot how nice it was to just walk, talk, and window shop (and yes - I did actually buy something even though I shouldn't have - hehe). It almost made me feel like I did in high school - well . . . . . almost! ;)

Kaylee and I have been making good use of the new craft room workspace. We made a "care package" for our new neighbors, and she has been making cards like crazy. It has been nice because even when I'm working on the laptop - she still has space to do her cards with me at the table.

Speaking of cards, I am hosting a Christmas Card Making Workshop on August 30th from 1PM to 5Pm. Right now we are planning on having it at Joni's house in Bedford, but if we have enough people, we will move it to a church in the same area. Joni and Sharon are making some great cards for us and you will be able to choose which cards and how many of each you would like to make. There will be a price per card that will be determined after they make the samples. If you think you can attend, please let me know and I will forward you more information. You can e-mail me at .

That's about all that's going on for now. I hope you are all well and having a great summer!
