About Me

My photo

I am married to a Great Guy - Charlie.  We have a beautiful daughter, Charese, who is a JOY to have.  We love the outdoors, watching movies, reading and I love scrapbooking and cardmaking.  There are other hobbies as well.  I love to meet new people and share my love of scrapbooking and cardmaking with people.

A New Toy

Hello everyone - I went shopping today to Crafts Direct - one of my favorite stores.  Although my checkbook doesn't really like it.  Anyway, they are celebrating Craft Month and have a ton of items on sale.  I just love March, first day of Spring, Craft Month, St. Patty's Day, and my Birthday.  Okay back to the subject at hand.  They are having a huge sale on items so I bought a new toy today.  One of the things I love most about scrapbooking is the toys, and well the paper.  I bought the Cuddle Bug today.  I am very excited.  Although I have the Cricut Expressions, I bought the Cuddle Bug for the embossing it does.  I have not had an opportunity to play with it yet but I am very anxious to.  I don't think I will get to play with it tomorrow for I am off to celebrate a birthday.  I will post some of my projects I make with it once I get some done.  If one of you has the Cuddle Bug let me know what you have done with it and if you like it.  Would love to hear from you.  Have a great day everyone!!

Could We Ask

Could we ask for a more beautiful day.  It was so gorgeous today.  I hope we get a full week like today.  Charese is off to two field trips this week at school - so I hope they have nice weather.  I did not get out to much to enjoy the day but rather enjoyed it from the inside.  Charese was out for a little while playing with the neighbors today.  It is so nice to see the kids again in the neighborhood out and about.  In our development we certainly hibernate in the Winter.  So with the nice weather coming also comes seeing the neighbors again, which is always nice.

We also went bowling today - I do have to say I won not by much but I had a pretty good game.  Charese did very well and Charlie did really good considering he was still probably half asleep.  It was nice to be out and about having a fun family game.

What did you gals do today to enjoy the nice Spring weather?  Happy Spring everyone!!

March Is Here

March is here and so is the beginning of Spring which also means allergy season.  So I had these big plans to get a bunch of work done this week and guess what - my whole family is ill.  Yeap all of us, Charese, Charlie, and me.  Sick with sinus infections.  Saw the doctor today and got some medicine so we all should be better soon.  Which means I should be able to get back to working on my pages soon. 

I did get an opportunity to go to a crafters retreat in Loretto Friday through Sunday - only I had to leave on Saturday.  It was a lot of fun.  Thanks Wendy and Terri for inviting me it was wonderful to get away and get some pages done.  I will post my pages a little later.  I somewhat finished 22 pages.  It was a great feeling.

Well hope you all are healthy and enjoying the Spring that is heading are way.  Hope the Spring is inspiring all of you to do some cards or some scrapbooking. 

Happy Scrappin'
