Hi ladies, as promised I am going to put a teaser on my blog for you all to sign up for my card class. I hopefully will be able to post these pictures. The first one is my favorite, it's a pocket card. You could include a gift card or a wallet sized photo in this one.

The second one with the snowman is so cute and would be a great thank you as well as a simple holiday card. All the cards this time are simple yet really eyecatching. I hope you will all join me on December 8th, 2007 to make these cards and 4 more designs. Please email me by Nov. 26th to register for this great party.

Thanks for checking out my blog. I hope you like it. I am really trying to get better at posting.
Have a great Thanksgiving. I can't wait for Friday to go shopping. Forget the Turkey I want the newspaper ads! Yes I am one of those CRAZY women who get up at the crack of dawn ( or before) to get all the really great deals. Happily this year I will have my shopping partner Jana (my wonderful sister in law) with me. So think of me on Friday morning, or maybe I will see you out there. Craft warehouse is always a favorite stop, so is Michael's. Oh it's the most wonderful time of the year.

One Sheet Wonder

Ok I don't know what I did wrong but I am going to try again to post some pictures of cards I made. I sort of CASED them from someone on check out the website, it's great.
Yeah me I did it! Not being very computer skilled I still managed to upload some of the cards. I will load some more later. The Direct TV guy just called and he is on his way to install our DVR. I was totally shamed into getting this thing when a friends 3 year old looked at me like I was an idiot when I couldn't "rewind " clifford the other day. She couldn't understand why my TV didn't have a rewind button. So here I am a week later getting a rewind button. My husband is very excited because now he can catch all the NBA season even though he's at work.
Catch you later.
Happy Halloween

I am still here

Hi I just thought I should check in and say I really do want to do this blog thing, life has just been crazy. Soccer is finally (almost) over. One more Saturday and then we get a break. Then basketball starts. We have been busy with lots of other things too. Colton and Katie just celebrated birthdays. I plan on posting my invite pics soon. It's hard to believe the big guy is already 11! WOW it sure flys by. Like the Kenny Chesney song "Don't blink". It is so true.

So now I feel I have atleast said something on my blog. I will try to post again soon. Thanks for checking it out.

Yeah Me!

I just wanted to write about the wonderful deal I got for our school yesterday. I don't know if any of you are familiar with Box tops but they are a wonderful and easy source of money for your childrens school. You get ten cents for everyone you collect. I know that that doesn't sound like much but let me tell you about my shopping trip yesterday. It was just the usual trip to the super Wal-Mart for groceries. I didn't buy anything unusual, just the normal stuff. So when I got home I started counting the Box Tops as I put everything away. At this time of year (back to school) they often put bonus Box Tops on items, so I was on the lookout for products with extras. When I was all done I had 60 Box Tops! That's $6.00 of free money for our school. It would have just been recycling. Then K-mart was running a promo for additional 70 Box Tops if you purchased 10 products with Box Tops. So that was an additional $7.00. I collected $13.00 for our school just grocery shopping yesterday. I know it might not sound like a lot but if you multipy it by all the kids in our school it could add up to close to $5000.00. If you would like more information check out the website The site has lots of great recipes, coupons and lists all the products you can find Box Tops on. Check it out. It's like throwing away money if you don't save them. You probably know someone who collects them to give them too, if not email me and send them to our school. Thanks! Have a great afternoon.

Hi I am new to this whole blogging thing. I don't really know what to do with this or what to write. I am a stay at home mom of three. One boy who is growing up too fast and two girls. My oldest daughter started first grade today. It was strange not to have her around today. My son is in the 5 th grade. Our youngest was very lost without them today. I was canning peaches and pears so she had no one to play with. She took her nap with out any fuss. It was like she knew that when she got up she would have her playmates back. I guess I will write more about this later. Right now I have to get dinner ready because they have soccer practice in an hour. Thanks for looking.
