Hello? Is it me your looking for?



  1. Yes, I was singing Lionel Richie when I typed that title.
  2.  New year....new weightloss goals
  3. My friend Sam posted #3 on facebook the other day and I told her I was stealing it. (No worries, she said it was fine).
  4.  Operation Lose 52 in 52.
  5.  Maybe I will change it to "52 in 52 weeks." I don't want to be a complete copy cat, do I?
  6.  I really want to lose 60 lbs, but will be happy with 52 by this time next year.
  7. I never remember if the period goes inside or outside of quotations marks at the end of the sentence (see #5).
Edited to add:

      8. I just noticed that the "#3" in #3 should be "#4."
      9. And there's that period and quotation marks issue again!

2nd Home



  1. This messy place has become my second home. 
  2. It's never just the way I want it.
  3. I am always on my feet.
  4. It is usually filled with loud kids and people asking tons of questions.
  5. The books are always a mess.
  6. I am usually  doing one of the following: checking in and out books, answering emails, working on the webpage, creating documents, answering phone calls, creating lessons/materials etc, etc, etc.
  7. I wouldn't have it any other way!!

Sneak Peek




My camera is still out of commission, but I went ahead and snapped some pictures of my latest project with my phone. The pictures aren't the best, but I wanted to go ahead and post some pictures because I think this turned out so cute!!


"Happy 1st birthday"
"McGuyer"

There is no way to get the whole thing in one picture. I also made another banner for McGuyer's high chair. It says "I am 1" I forgot to get a picture of that. No worries, though. McGuyer's Mom said she would send me some pictures.





I just love those Mickey hands!! I also made a bigger "1st" Mickey head. I think it might look better, but we will see.


Cupcake toppers

I also cut out a bunch of Micky ears of different sizes and colors, but again....no picture. (That seems to be the theme of this post.)

What do you think?

Something That Bugs Me

I have the most amazing husband in the world. I very rarely complain about him (publicly, anyway) because I think it is my job as his wife to support him. Same goes for him. He supports me. I have never heard him complain about me to others, but then again I am not around him all day every day. I choose to think he doesn't.

However! (You knew that was coming, right?)
There is one little thing that has been on my mind. Nothing major, but in every instance this happens.

When I buy milk, I buy the red top (full fat!!!). I like it better for cooking and for The Boy. He needs all the fat he can get. Skinny little booger. 

Sometimes The Husband does the grocery shopping for us. I will make a list and he will get the items while adding what he wants too. Everytime I put milk on the list, he buys the blue top! I even write "milk (red top)" and he will buy the blue top.

Everytime.

Always.

To infinity and beyond.

Now I know I shouldn't complain. I realize there are people out there with more serious husband issues. This is nothing and actually I am not complaining. I'm just sharing. :)

Big News!!

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind for me. To make a long story short.....

So, in summary...
* I got a job.
* I have projects to post.
* You should check this blog again in the next few days.

Crafts for Mamaw

My Mom, aka Mamaw, was out of town last week so The Boy and The Nephew made posters for her.  I was told what to write and they did sticker choice and placement all on their own. 

The Boy stuck with a simple I love you message, but The Nephew had to remind her of a little joke they played in her.  He's a prankster!

Since this picture, more stickers have been added.  The are still learning about.....okay, I have been sitting here and can't think of the word I am trying to say.....censoring?....I think that it is, but for some reason it doesn't seem right....

While The Boys Are Away....





....I will get 6 pages done!! Yes, I know it has been awhile. Okay, okay.....FOREVER!!! (Did you hear the little boy from Sandlot when you read that?) I was home alone and had just finished cleaning some on my Scrappin' Space and decided to make get some item finished on my long, long list.  
And here's the epiphany I had while scrapping booking tonight.....Ready?!!? 

Wait for it......




...and enjoy some pages while you wait.....



Getting ready for our ride!!
My style is simple. I never scrapbook anymore because everything I see online and in blogs is so detailed. While that is fine, I tend to get overwhelmed when I see that kind of stuff so I do nothing. I collect things. And collect and collect and collect.
Waiting for Thomas
I love all these different shots of Shane as he was seeing Thomas for the first time. The top left one is just too precious!!

I decided tonight that I am no longer a collector, but a scrapbooker.

BLERG!!! I uploaded these pictures with  my phone and deleted one. Now I can't get it back on here. There is one more adorable page and I can't show it to you. Eh, I'll try again tomorrow....maybe.

More Thomas pages coming soon......

Watermelon, Watermelon on the vine....

Ok, admit it. Who was singing the jump rope rhyme when you read the title?


I made this watermelon for a friend that needed it for a poster she was creating. It took me all of 10 minutes to complete and that was because the paper kept tearing. It should have taken me less. 

Anywho!

I love how it turned out. I put a penny in the picture for scale. You can't tell in the picture, but the paper is sparkly and make the watermelon adorable. So cute!!

Productive Day

Not even 3:00 pm and I have already finished two loads of laundry (folded and put away!) and am working on #3 and cleaned out the 'fridge, freezer and pantry! Not sure where this burst of energy has came from, but I am going to take advantage of it.

Now, let's discuss me being fat. Yea, I still am, but I have lost weight recently and that's progress. I also had a friend invite me to begin WW again. She is getting a group at work started. So no more driving 30 minutes for a 30 minute meeting. We start this Wednesday.


Now, let's discuss me losing my mind. Last week, I posted on my personal blog and evidently changed my password for my account with that blog. I cannot get back in because I don't remember changing my password at all. It said I changed it 8 days ago which would be when I probably posted. I can't even view the stinkin' blog because I set it to private. I'm sure I changed the password, but I cannot remember what it is. When I go to password recovery, it sends an email to the other account I have linked to help. Here's the kicker. I lost the password to that account months ago and now I can't get into it either!

See? I've lost my mind!

Donation Station Labels

I'm sure you have heard of pinterest. Love it! One day last week, I came across this pin and decided to give it a go. I'm an not a very organized person. Well, if you call making-piles-of-things-in random-spots-around-the-house organizing, then yes. I am an organized person. I like to call my house organized chaos.

When I saw that day one was this (which I already do, just not as organizely <-----new word), I couldn't wait to make my area more eye pleasing and better.

Before I just had one big box in my closet where I would throw stuff that needed to be donated/returned to someone/somewhere or things I had bought as gifts when I found a good deal. Now, I have these!


 Close up of the "Gifts" box.


 I found the black crates in my garage. I went out there to look for something else and found these instead.

I used Elegant edges to cut the oval layers and Cricut Keystone and my markers to write the words. Love those markers and the center point button!!

Now, everyone knows that you take ideas you find on the internet and make them your own. Who says you have to follow the idea exactly? If I don't make it work for me, it WON'T WORK!

You may have noticed that I have one less box than what the link suggest. That's because we keep our library books in this bag so we didn't need the library bag. 

So, what do you think? What new projects have you completed?
