Where does the time go???

Wow - I just can't seem to grasp where the time goes... Today is my 20 High School reunion along with my hubby's oldest daughter's graduation from High School! Man oh man - where does the time go...

It seems like it was just yesterday (but it was actually 20 years ago) that I was at my parents 20th High School reunion picnic and I remember thinking - wow! They have been out of high school for 20 years!! Holly Cow!!! And now - look - it is me!!!

It is very different and can be very difficult to have a split family. So there are some occasions that I just let hubby take the lead and plow ahead on. It is a long story and I don't want to bore you with it...... but Hubby has made a whirl wind tour to CO to see his daughter graduate and I have decided to stay here and keep the home fires burning... oh and the puppy from peeing on the floor! Bahahaha!!!

But sometimes I have to say it is kind of nice to have the whole house to myself - it gives me plenty of time to work on my "Land of Enchantment" Files..... Thanks to all of you that have sent me suggestions for titles... I am having such a GREAT time with this collection.... (Stay tuned for more on that coming soon!!!)

Anyway - Hope you all have a GREAT weekend! Have lots of fun and enjoy the awesome weather!

Until Next Time!

Hi Ho....

Wow - I just looked down at the clock and noticed it is after 4 PM!!!! Holly cow!!! Where does the time go??? Well I do know where the time went today - I am actually test cutting some new files!!!!

Here is a sneak peek at a file I did for the KNK Swap on Paperthreads!!! Ileana (one of our new designers at Paperthreads) is hosting the swap this month so I decided to join in on the fun!!!

In addition to that file - I am also test cutting my "Land of Enchantment" files (aka that place where you can find the big black mouse and his goofy friend!!!!) You know how copyright is - so I am trying to be VERY careful!! I don't want some quack to throw me in jail!!!! Or even worse - take my cutter away!! Oh My! Bahahaha!!!

I have to tell you I am VERY excited about this set of files!! They have been sooooo much fun to design - and then add to the fact I am going to use them in my own scrapbook from my girls weekend getaway! Well lets just say it is EXCITING!!!

Hmmm - speaking of "The Land of Enchantment" do you have any titles for there that you would like to see?? If so - drop me a comment and I will see what I can do to come up with something!!! Remember it can't use the name of the place - nor any of its "copyrighted" character's names!!!

So far I have these completed:

It's All about the Ears (this file is already in the store)

and then I have:

"The World of Dreams"

"Let the Magic Begin"

"My other car is a Monorail"

"What Characters!"

"Spectacular Show"

I just can't wait to get these completed and up in the store.... Hmmmm maybe I will give you a sneak peek soon!

Until Next Time!

Until Next Time!

I'm Back!

Yep - here I am! I am back! After another horrible few days of dealing with my uncle's estate - I am happy to report - I think we might be done! I have to tell you all - if you do not have a will - GET ONE!! Please!! If something was to, Lord forbid, happen to you - don't let your family have to deal with the mess that is left behind!! Especially if - like in our case - your surviving family members are not really up to dealing with it... (for example - my dad is not in the best of health, he is a heart patient and it has been a huge emotion and physical struggle to deal with everything that was left behind. From cleaning up the huge, nasty and moldy mess, to making decisions and driving all over the state - it really has taken a toll - on all of us really!)

On the up side of all of this - it looks like I am going to get to meet my 1st cousin who I haven't seen since I was like - hmmmm three - I think!!! So you might as well say - I haven't really ever seen him!! So that is pretty exciting! To know that there is someone out there that is your flesh and blood and you finally are going to see them face to face! I am really interested in seeing if we look anything alike! I did find a photo while we were packing up and cleaning out my uncle's stuff and it looks like he might have the same dimple that I have on my right cheek! (If that is the case - we got that from my granny! LOL)

Anyway - I am back for a while and I am itching to start designing - I have a ton of file ideas in my head and just can't wait to get them on the computer screen!

Hope you all had a GREAT Mother's Day! Now we have to move on to Father's day!!! Speaking of Father's Day - have you seen the cute cute cute file I have in the store for Father's Day??? It would make a really cute card!!!

Check it out ~

Well - thanks for looking - and I have you all have a GREAT day!

Until Next Time!

Dress Saga...

I am happy - no ecstatic to report that the dress saga has come to an end!!! Whooo Hoooo!!! Yes, yes, yes my dear blog readers no long will you have to listen to me bitch and whine about trying to find a dress for the Ball next month!!! With less than 30 days until the bog event - I FINALLY found a dress!

I have to give huge thanks to my dear hubby who decided to pull into David's Bridal yesterday and convinced me to less just go take a look! Now while they didn't have the dress I wanted in stock in the color I wanted - they did have it in my size!!! So I was able to actually try the dress on and see what it would look like - and then the wonderful girls there - ordered it up in the color of my choice and it is guaranteed to be here on the 27th of this month!!!

Whoo Hooo....

So here you go - here is the long awaited glimpse of "The Dress"!!!

That is about all to report here! I want to say Happy Mother's day to all you mother's out there! I hope it is a GREAT day!

Until Next Time!


PS - -for those of you in GA - please please be careful - it looks like we have some MAJOR nasty weather heading our way!!! We have actually postponed our trip for a few hours because of it! Tornado watches are abound - so BE CAREFUL!!!
