There's nothing like a Dove Milk Chocolate Promise...

If you have never had one, get one! I was introduced to them a little over a year ago by my friend Charli, and they bring me such happiness! Truly, it always seems that the little message inside is just what I needed; to pick me up , to make me laugh, or to give me a reality check. Serious!

For example, I have found two wrappers today left behind from Brett. One says, "Think without limits", and the other "Bring your life to life: stop planning, start doing." How appropriate and cool is that !

It's been a busy two weeks...

There has been something EVERY night for the last two weeks! That's just CRAZY! LOL! It's been a whirlwind on top of the everyday stuff but it's been an exciting and fun kinda crazy!

Some of the craziness includes: birthdays, MonaVie tasting parties, going to Chuck E. Cheese (I'm officially on protest! Not to return anytime soon! Because of the patrons not the restaurant), and making time with friends. 

This weeks craziness (sister off to sunny vacation - I'm jealous, brother having surgery - not jealous, MonaVie special event, etc.) will conclude with a nice family vacation! We are ALL looking forward to it! 

More to come to tend to the house for now! :) Have a great weekend!

It is also on my blog list!

Let me know your thoughts! Enjoy!

Heavy in my thoughts...

I want to keep this simple and not really go into any detail but I want to share with those that are in job jeopardy that they are heavy in my thoughts and prayers.

In these economic times many companies/employers are having to make hard decisions. For most employees, a layoff decision is not a matter of an employee doing a poor job it is that there is not enough funds to afford that employee. That being said, remember that you are of worth, you are of talent, and you are strong.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Needing Some Adjustment...

I think that I will not write on the same post as a slideshow. I am noticing that the words are cut off, yet when I went to preview it all looked fine.

I hope that as the posts shift down you will be able to read without guessing/improvising what the words are!

Sorry. Too tired to figure it out. It's only midnight! :)

Mini Me

It's DONE!

I created an interview for myself (and students) to answer; think of them more as prompts...

Not all papers and embellishments are in the kits; most are but, for example: the purple paper and flowers - it's MY favorite color, it may not be yours, therefore it's not in the kit. :)

I hope you like it as much as I do! I'm pretty happy with it's turnout!

BBCC Classes

Wondering why I haven't posted lately? Beyond the busyness of life, I committed to teaching some scrapbook classes at our community college. 

The first project is an 8.5 x 11 Day Planner geared for scrapbookers; its so big that it's going to take two classes to complete. The rest are mini albums:
a 6x6 acrylic album titled "mini me" - yet to be completed
a 6x6 chipboard album titled "time in a bottle" - yet to be completed
an explosion album that we'll create from scratch titled "bustin' at the seams" - the explosion album pictured
and "all shook up" which is designed to utilize your leftovers and scrap pieces- yet to be completed

Not only am I creating the project, ordering the product but I am also creating kits for 15 people. The minimum class attendance is set for 9 and the max is 15... I'll find out 3-5 days before each class if class minimum has been met and if class is really being held. I'm not too worried; I can teach at my local scrapbook store and sell the rest of the kits to my friends that scrap - there's been much anticipation and interest. :) (Thanks guys for your support)

I just finished getting the product in on Friday and had some color issues from the planner I already made to the one that the students will be creating so I re-did the title pages to match what the students kits contain. ('Cause I'm just loaded with time and nothing else to do! LOL!) I just finished packaging the planner kits last night at 11pm. I am proud of the project, excited to share it, but pressed for time as I teach the planner class NEXT Thursday.

I have a bit much on my plate but I'm handling it well. Enjoy the projects that are completed. Hope to keep you better posted!
