Happy New Year!!!

Wow - So sorry about not posting for soooooooo long! It's been crazy. With my hubby working out of state & 4 kids in school with homework every day & 2 kids in school sports (which means practice every day) - I just couldn't keep up. Heck, I couldn't even keep up with the housecleaning! But now Dave has a job back home, so I hope things lighten up a bit. But I have a feeling not, because now we just bought a Subway restaurant! Because I had no time, I did scale back on my CT duties & Praise teams I was on. Now, I'm on the store CT for Brownie Scraps - a template only store. And some exciting news they have:
You can get more info HERE: AND for all you 365/52 Project doers, Brownie Scraps is having a 15% sale on those style templates: So why not go shopping while's there's a sale???? Hugs to all!

Manic Monday

For some odd reason, I'm having a hard time adjusting to the new year. I'm afraid a part of it may have to do with the fact that it's my youngest's last year of preschool. I can't imagine him not being at home with me. I've even been thinking about homeschooling him. *sigh*

Some good news, Sugar Moon Designs has a new kit out called "Christmas Pageant." It is soooo cute & can be used for layouts other than Christmas themes.

See??? and of course, those holiday themes, as well as school activies:

And it's on sale right now!!! You can get it half off at Divine Digital HERE or at With Love Studio HERE.

I don't know how long the sale will last, so get it now for 50% off while you can!!!

Happy Martin Luther King day!!!

I can't believe it's half-way through January already.  And I can't believe that I didn't post at all in December.  But December was a hard month for me.  My dh came down with pneumonia.  He was so sick.  So everything fell on my shoulders,  all the Christmas shopping, wrapping, cooking, going to all the kids' Christmas programs & parties.    I was feeling worn down.

Then the day after Christmas, I was admitted to the hospital due to a kidney stone.  It was too  large to pass & I had to have surgery to remove it.  It was horribly painful; although not as painful as childbirth. ;)
Though I did learn at the hospital, they've implanted a new protocol - healing oils.  They gave me peppermint oil for my nausea & lavender oil at night.  It did help - I was pleasantly surprised.  The nurse told me it had to be the pure oils - not the watered down ones at the local stores.  They just put a couple of drops on a gauze pad & had me smell it when I felt like I needed it.  The nurse said they noticed that when people use this - they don't need as much pain medication.  I'm starting to believe that now.

Well, I do have some great scrapbooking news:  ScrapMatters is not closing, as some rumors were suggesting.  They just did some changes - a whole new way of doing challenges!   It's now a bingo style system.  Check it out here:

And their Stack Exchange is back!!!   It's so much fun!  You buy the selected kit (it's discounted for the month), unless you already own it,  make either a stacked page, cluster, border, etc.; submit it to Lisa by the end of the month, and next month, you'll receive all the goodies that everyone else made.

Here's Lisa's contribution:

And here's mine:

this is the kit you'll be working with:

So, get scrapping & share your creations!!!
