My mojo has finally returned

March 25/08

My brother Kenny turned 33 today....Happy Birthday bro...We Love you!!!!!

**I finally got back to work with my scrapping...Of course Teresa Collins' yummy new line of paper sure helped with the inspiration..That paper rocks..I had so much fun using it.

My easter treat

I had such a good Easter with my son. Even though most of my family was not around for it, Si's dad came to spend the day with us, and my Grandma came over for Easter dinner. I made holubschi and mashed potatoes.


March 16/08
How cute is this? I was soooo proud of Si while watching him perform at his dance recital..his performance knocked my socks off. He missed the previous 2 practices, but he stole my heart...This kid is born to perform!!

Spoiled rotten

I participated in a secret swap through Rhubarb Roots, and this is what I come home to....
Char(who had my name) spoiled me rotten... Spoiled isnt even the word, I am still in awe of everything she sent me. She went way above what was required and put in such a huge effort(even made a gorgeous gratitude journal)
It is moments like this where I am reminded how lucky I am. Lucky to have such sweet and genuine scrapbooking friends, lucky to have met Char through Rhubarb Roots, lucky to have scrapbooking in my life.


This makes me happy!!!

I LOVE seeing the unconditional love between my son, and my brother and his wife....They are absolutely amazing with him, and I am so thankful to have the 2 of them in our lives!!!!


Sea World,
Here I am with my sister in law and my step sister(No, I am NOT, but i was trying out that weird style of shirt from Aeropostale)


Sea world,
Seriously, how cute is Shamu? Out of all of the shows we caught there, this was by far my favourite!!!

Sea World

We had the best weather in Florida!
I was really excited to go to Sea World, because i hadnt been there since I was 7.

Welcome to the neighbourhood

I created this for the design call over at Kits 2 remember.
I took the package from a set of Heidi Swapp stamps and put a package of hot chocolate inside.
I decorated the outside of the package with buttons, ribbon, cardstock stickers, transparencies, rubons, and beads.


It has been WAYYYYYYYY too long since I have blogged, that I hardly know where to begin.
I was in Florida for 2 weeks and have had a tough time getting back into the swing of things.
My blog will be jumbled up for the first while until I receive my other Florida pictures, so nothing will be in order for the time being...
Did You notice a new addition in this picture?
I removed my labret piercing and went with a monroe piercing(above my upper lip) Once it heals, I plan on replacing the earring with something MUCH smaller.
**Other exciting news******
1)Contract was renewed with the Rhubarb Roots design team...YAY!!!! I love that place!!!! For any local gals, they have relocated to the Altona Mall, and they have made their space look gorgeous!!!
2)I made the design team over at You have got to check out the blog/store. I am going to have a blast with this because Jessica is the owner(she is so cool!!) and she manufactures her own acrylic panels and brag tags, as well as selling Clear scraps acrylic albums. I will be responsible for creating a mini album every month,a nd I am excited for this!!!
3)I will finally have my work in print...Somerset Memories magazine(formerly known as legacy) has requested one of my creations for a future issue.
4)It has been a slow and unstable process, but I have been working to build and maintain a stable friendship with Si's Dad..I want Si to grow up thinking that just because we couldnt stay married didnt mean that we couldnt get along.
