"Haul" pictures

Hello my faithful readers,
I just needed some time off...to think...be grateful for my family...
just get lost in my own head.

(Just so you all know, I am still trying to clean the crafty room!)

BUT, I went shopping and my order from PTI came in so
here are my haul pictures. ( I made a haul video, but do not know
how to get it here on the blog yet) It is a work in progress...

I bought: cardstock and matching ribbons!! Notice the colors! MY FAVES!!
Isn't is funny how we are so
attracted to our favorites.

And I bought some metal dies that I use with my Cuttlebug

And last but not least are the stamps!

Enjoy hump day!

Happy Birthday "Big J"

I can't believe it has been 22 years!
My sugar bear is twenty-two.
Yep, that is what I called him...sorry Justin.
So, to honor "J"
and his special day,
I thought I would show you one of my scrapbooks
about one of his bday parties.

He was a Senior in High School, President of Honor Society,
Captain of the Cross Country and Track Team and turning 18!
Could life be any better at that time??

Here is my album on our Casino Royal party:
First the invitation!

I just want to let everyone know-We
are totally against underage drinking!!
I don't encourage it and I wouldn't accept it either...
We have taught our boys they have choices,
make the wrong choices and you LOSE
your license, your vehicle, playing sports,
freedom, etc...

With that being said-We do encourage gambling!

Let the gambling begin...

All said it was a fantastic time...Justin felt special that day,
surrounded by family and friends who
loved him!

Sorry for the LLLOONNNGGG Post today!

A tragic loss...

I have been away this week because of a death in the family. My cousin committed suicide...we are left with many questions and broken hearts. He was a brother, son, husband, father and grandfather. He will surely be missed!

Happy Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday my blogger friends,

I am still cleaning, and sorting, and purging( crafts that is..!)

I feel I am having the after holiday season blues...
Or maybe, the cleaning is sucking out all my creative juices!!

Oops! Forgot the holiday pics!

The serious poker game! No chicks allowed...
The hubby and my youngest..both so handsome!
Don't even ask about the next picture!!
The video is even worse!

Cleaning the craft room!!

UGH! I dread the "after the season" craft room clean-up...Nothing is in it's place and each year it is the same thing. I can't seem to put stuff away as I go...must be a quirk of mine!

I have gotten some emails about the new header and divider! Thank you, those ARE my favorite colors too! LOVE red, green and yellow.
Most rooms in my house are those colors.

(Sorry Aunt Patty, you know I just love my colored, cluttered walls!)
I am convinced my BRAIN is also multi-colored with cute collections
filling every corner!!!

Since I am finding long lost goodies that I will never use- up on ETSY they go...
So if you need some cheap supplies....Go there! Or email me!

P.S. Have I mentioned my nickname is "Chatty Kathy"??

Happy New Year!

Is it 2011 already?? Where did this past year go???
I hope everyone had a great holiday season, I know I did...
I am not one to make resolutions BUT I do like to set some goals for myself and my family...
See, goals are something you can work towards on a regular basis.
Resolutions seem to be so black and white-You make them and then break them!
(Goals are more user friendly)

So spice your life up by trying new things, eating at different restaurants,
reading more books, follow more blogs...etc.
