where have I been

Ohh, lets see doctor's appt. for the diva, hospital, on-call at 2am for a 17 yr old runaway from phoenix! lol And last night we had the Christmas program. The boys did so great and we all were really proud of T, this is his 2nd year being in the program and he did so well:) I think he was more excited to see all of us and his grandparents. I've been making candied pretzels, thanks to Gina lol and started back working out. I'm feel a little better, but still have'nt gotten the results back from my sonagram, so I hope everything is cool. But this morning I woke up with a cold, so I'm sneezing like crazy & have a running nose. Man, I can't win! I have done a couple Lo's last week I need to upload & The upcoming challenge for Dreamgirls. I cant' wait till the challenge is up and all the new DT members can show off their work, I'm lucky to be working with such a talented group of ladies.
Ok, so maybe the kids will chill out today and let me rest a little and I can get some things finished up.

Happy Girl

So Sunday night I found out that I made the Design Team over at DREAMGIRLS! Its a awesome site and i've loved the older challenges they've had. Me and and the rest of the new DT will be starting with challeng #18. So I'm supa excited about doing my LO. So thanks bunches Debbie and Delores. I'll add the blinkie and link to my blog, as soon as I figure out how to put my address bar back on the toolbar, so that I can copy and paste. Yes, the lil' Diva has been messing on the computer again lol.
Hopefully I can get my Suvior LO down, for over at Tallyscrapper. I'm behind on alot of stuff, mostly at home. No fun being sick with a household and 5 children of the corn. But I love em. So here's my Dec. Daily mini book. I made using the transparent card and some embeliies from my Dec. Freehand scraps kit:)

Have a Great Evening!!!!







Ok, so I'm back to being a lil' sick again. Ugh! Tracy said she start feeling better the day after Thanksgiving which is the day I got sick lol Hmmm..maybe she gave it too me via tx messages lol. So today I've been busy. I actually slept in late since I was tired from staying up yesterday. So I had to do dishes, wash,dry and fold more clothes and I still have too put them away (which I hate doing) Hopefully Tali will go to bed early, like when the boys go.

For Real tho'

I spent too much money yesterday! I got up and left like 4 45am to my hair appt. at 6. I went to the African braiding place & got micros. They came out cute, but my head is still sore. Then I went shopping and got the kids a ton of clothes. I'm not even go say how much I spent, but lets just say when I went to check out the lady at the register asked me if it was a lay away lol. And other employees kept coming up and looking at my pile and going wow, or is that for Christmas? One lady told me she hopes Tali finds a rich husband when she grows up cause she's spoled lol. They needed new clothes thought and I'm a sucker for cute lil' girls stuff. And of course really didnt buy myself anything. Ran in HL and got some canvas' and some page protecters they were 50% off. I got 3 packs , can't beat that.
So tomorrow I'm excited , going to crop with Gina and her wonderful mom Carol! I met them on a couple MB's and so far they are the clothes people in Il. to me lol I hope we get something done lol

Praise the Lord!

I finally got some money today. Have to do some running, like pay my truck payment (which I had to make two payments).But since I had the $ I went ahead & paid nexts months too. And gotta pay some other things and pay em off! It'll feel so much better when I pay off all my stuff and just have the household items and kids to take care of. I'm tired of being stressed out,yuk! I wanna try to get something creative done today, had a few house chores to do yesterday and then I got tired.I also have to upload my pics for Michelle's 30 day photo challenge on Tallyscrapper. I need energy;)

Geesh!




I'm like so blog ilit lol, or blogger just doesn't like me. Maybe that's the problem with having 2 email accounts lol. Well alot have happened between my last nov. post. I've done tons of LO's but Its too many to post ,so I'll just share some of the latest ones. But I am however, closer to my goal of 100 LO's I have like 14 more too do! Thats, awesome to me, considering I didn't scrap for a few months after Germanes death:( I still miss my big cousin esp. since it's almost Christmas. And I've been getting some great scrappy news! I'm guest DT for 2 different kit clubs, for the months of Dec. & Jan! And both of these two clubs are awesome, let me tell ya:)
It's so dang cold here,Kyle said it isn't that cold and its just me. I'm always cold & the oil co has been drilling 24/7 behind the house. My neighbor was complaing about the noise, but I think It's kinda cool. Plus I don't go too sleep till later anyway. Holla

Randomness....


Yep, that's all I got today. Still tired from my call last night. I wanna try to do a layout, but I think after "Without a Trace" I'm off to bed, oh..thats after I iron school clothes. I was def. a Pajamma day today, I went to the bank in my jammies, took the kids for a walk in my jammies lol It was fun. Kylon wanted to look for willy worms and her found 4 and a big ole' praying mantis! Although he's scared to touch any of them lol So big brother Tradjan had to do that;) It was cute watching them take turns carring the bucket. And of course the Diva rode in the wagon. After we got home I took a shower and its back in jammies lol So here's what I made for my sweet friend Carol ,for her b-day. Nitey-nite.

Humm...



So I'm on call today and I hope I don't have to go out. The weather is nice, so I guess it would be cool for kids to run away in. I feel the start of a migraine and I've been tired and not feeling great these past days. Plus Tali is sick and has a fever:( So I really don't wanna leave my baby. I know I'm a babies mommy & hate leaving my kids, esp. when they don't feel well. I did get a really cute layout done of Tali's shoes and its one of my faves now. And over the weekend got my challenge for Ally scraps done. I think it came out ok, but I'm just glad I got those Halloween pics scrapped! I think I tried to scrap them earlier this year or late last year. Plus, I still need to get alot of pics developed. I have some running around to do tomorrow so maybe I can get that done. Plus I got my really cute kit from Sweet Spuds! So I'm really wanting to tear into it! Ok, off to fold some laundry and watch Maury:)

What Housework?





Ok, so Morag has a link to this site on her blog. But the housework is here lol. I have tons of laundry to do, mop my floors and try to change bed lines. I did get Tali's clothes put away while talking to Tracy. So maybe I can get in some scrapping,when the boys leave for the derby. That is if Tali behaves!So was on a roll yesterday, man! So I slept in a lil' today. Guess I'll share a couple of my LO's from the ANTS game I've been playing over at Ally Scraps. Have a great day:)

It's Fall?





Ok, so its really been nice this past couple of weeks. We've been outside playing on the swings, trampoline and just being free. Still have some flowers blooming and a couple of tomatoes still left:)Its cloudy today and we've been invited to childrens church by my friend Melissa. If it doesn't rain too hard, I guess we'll go. So I told the ladies at Allyscraps, I'd show my scrap space. It doesn't look to fancy on camera lol. Eventually I'll have to re-do my inspo. line since we'll be gettting new windows and I'll have to replace that one. I didn't show all the cubbies on both sides on my desk. There's 9 on each side. And I have lots more storaged under the wall with some of Kylon's lovely are he like me to display. Have a great one!

Prayer




Yep, thats the answer for everything I guess. I just had a hard morning. When I went to pick up Tradjan, his father started a aruguement with me, about school pictures. He's so inmature and really needs to grow da F*ck up! I'm no bodies Bitch, and will not be talked to like one. I just hate stupid people, so I guess I'll have to get another lawyer and take it back to court. Which would probably be better for Tradjan, since he's always upset and moody when he comes home;(
On a good note, the rest of my day is cool. Having fun meeting all the ladies at Allyscraps.com and playing the ANTS (America's next top scrapper) I'll link later, so you can play if you want. Lots of fun. So hopefully I can get some scrap goodness done and posted tonight. I also wanna get some reading in. I was looking through my pics from Val's shoot and these made me happy:)

Friday, October 10, 2008

UGH!!

Ok, so I didn't think I would miss my internet that much. But being without it for over a week really sucked! But I did get a few LO's done & thanks TP for sending messages for me lol:) You would think I would get back online to some good news, but Not! lol Tried out for a couple DT's and as usual didn't make any:( I know I suck. But basically I scrap for myself and sanity;)
So are you ready for fall? Yep, for our. Just picked up the mums today and the cornstalks and other decorations are up. I've been baking (yep homemade stuff) hmm... maybe I'm getting old, but I really need to stop eating the yummies I bake. Well off to check my Italian beef, place the mums and chill for a lil'. And tomorrow I'm outte! Yep I'm finally going out!!!

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

Oh...


...and here is this lil' pretty I just finished up today. The Mojo challenge, loved this one and was glad I got it done, since I haven't done one for while. Plus, didn't wanna get the beat down from my girl Marie, since I told her I'd do it lol

It's Feeling like Fall



Yep, finally! I <3 the fall weather, Jeans, sweater& cute boots! And also getting new clothes for the kids. I told the kids we would start putting the fall decoration up tomorrow. Still need to get some hay & pumpkins, both to use for decorations and to make jackO'lanterns with. I wish I could make all those awesome jack O' laterns with the faces and witches and junk. But I'm not that talented, just a typical house mommy. But at times I feel like supermom;) Did get a lil' scrapping done this wkend. Enjoy your "cool" fall day (well if you are having one) Hugs:)

Back to the Basics

...that was just a comment a friend who I hadn't seen in awhile made to me, when I told her I was divorced & the type of dudes I prefer now;) I guess by now I'm use to it & I'm starting to enjoy my wkends alone a little more:) One wkend I actually cryed because I missed my babies, so much. Actually the Diva more than my boys lol its just because she's always around me and it pretty much my best friend now. But my Godparents and sister came to town, so I went and hung with them most of the day. We had fun. Me and Cristy went thriting & I got a few things, then we took 2 of her nieces to DQ got ice cream, we back to Nika's and washed our cars just cause Godfather was washing his lol rode around a minute till I went home. I guess it was good for us, since we haven't talked to much, since she kinda did me dirty. But I'm learning to forgive people more and "let go & let God" I did get a few LO's done, my home cleaned. Might scrap a lil' today, but I woke up with a lil cold, so running nose and sore throat for me, Yuk!

I am so tired of driving!

Ok, so I am enjoying my job as a Child Advocate. It's great to work with teens & their families, since I think I have a knack for that & have always been a good listener. But come on now, this frickin driving is killin a sista! esp, when you rollin a SUV. I got a call Wed. before 5, which I was a lil' bummed since I had company. Yep, Kenea had came over & I hadn't talked to her since she lost her twins girls. It was really hard to comfort her & see the pics of the babies at 4mt. Wow! When your prego, u don't even think of them being so developed. But I think she enjoyed the hugs from the kids and the scrappy goodness I gave her;) So anyway I got a call to go to McCleansboro, which I really didnt know where it was. So after talking to the police officer (and he's the one who gave me the bad directions!) I was on my way, came to find out I had driven a hour of the to way to carbondale! Ugh! So needless to say I got there after 7:30, then had to wait another 2 hrs for the girls father to come get her! I ended up picking my babies up like 12 30, and wasn't in the house 10min before I had to go relieve Jennifer who had taken the other call I got, right after this one. I ended up getting back home at 5 30 am! I guess lol. So K's not feeling feel, & I had to miss a call last night, so I might have to get someone to cover me for 2night. Maybe I can get some LO's done tomorrow:)

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Nu-Nu




Yep, I gots that new stuff for ya azz;) Nah, not really (unless you count my new LO's) I really need to get me some new stuff. Dillards, has the new Ed Hardy bags *& I'm dying to get one. Well, not dying but they are tight and I really must have one. So I've been trying to do a LO a day. I'm kinda glad Tracy stayed on my butt to get me back scrapping. Didn't scrap Sunday though, just spending time with the fam. But during my late night on Saturday I did manage to finish up another one. I took a "sweet" pics of Kylon well chilling on the trampoline. Last night I did one of him painting in his undies, but not sure how I fell about it. And had to scrap my pic of the "sky" I took while lying on the tramp. Speaking of trampoline, I finally got the scare I was so afaid to get. Tali, flipped right off! Yea, my baby cryed but was ok, within a few minutes. She's always been so good on that thing, now I'm just a lil' scared to let her get back on. But being the fierce lil' Diva she is, I know that wont be happening anytime soon. Something I think I'm waaaayyy over protective of my kids, but they are my life,world & the air I breath & I think God everyday for em. Even if they get on my nerves sometimes;)

Sunday, September 21, 2008

I was up way to late





Yep, by the time I looked at the clock it was 3 30 a.m! I guess I was in my own world of being creative, but I did get 3 LO's done. I need to journal on the 3rd and take a pic. Although I did wake up at like 8, but opted to go back to sleep till like 12 something. You would have thought I had went out lol. Did finally get my housework done! Oh, I forgot I need to fold the load of jeans I did a few days ago, Oh well It'll get done eventually. I just really feels good to feel creative again:) Playing with my paint,ink, PP & the 3 Dozens kits I had just sitting there. Yep I'm def. starting to feel better about everything:) So I guess tonight I'll do the same thing again once the kids are in bed. I'm having so much fun doing the AMM crop, it's actually the 2st online crop I've ever done....Wow, huh, but its lots of fun. Finished up Becca's Challenge with was to do a LO with 2 pics,22 brads or buttons, 2 tech,2 types of bling & 2 rub-ons or stickers. I liked the way it came out, plus the pics of Tali are from the 4th of July, last yr. But I'm glad she took the time out of her busy 1yr old schedule to pose for me. I tell ya, that girl has some legs on her! my baby is so purtty:) The 2nd challenge I did was for Anita, to make a LO & use your scraps for a card. Ok, since I'm not a card maker I had fun doing that & I think I'll send the card to one of my friends. Hope your day is as blessed as mine;)

Saturday, September 20, 2008

So today was cool...

Yep, I had a lovely lil' day today:) Got some LO's done & still scrapping now. With my glass of wine, yep I finally had to get me a bottle after hearing Becky talking about it. For a non-drinker, I guess its ok. Earlier we just kinda chilled, ordered take out (chinese) and the kids played outside. I stepped out for a lil' bit ,but dang the mosquitoes are terrible here! Well it's back to da scrappiness and hope I don't fall asleep from the wine. Ummm, maybe I should stick to my favored water and kool-aid.

Friday, September 19, 2008

Some pretties...



Ok, so things are finally getting back to normal & I feel like Creating again! Did 2 LO's yesterday and tonight I'm joining in on the crop fun at AMM. So I need to wash dinner dishes, sweep and mop the floor, but all that can wait till in the morning, well except putting the kiddos to bed lol Okay, just the boys cause the Diva usually stays up with me.
