Wow, a little better....

Well I know I haven't been posting to much that I've been doing, but like I said before, trying out for a few design teams so I cant post thing that I'm using for the design team try outs. So when its over I'll have a bunch to post!! lol

Anyways..... Well my little ones have been sick and we haven't had the best luck with doctors. Whole other story there, but we went to another doctor today because my youngest spiked a high fever last night. Well I really like this doctors office, they really seemed great and they took there time, they didnt rush in and rush out. We were new patients and they took there time to get to know us some, so that was nice. And his ears and eyes look great, the infections are going away great, but the fever came from an infection on his throat, is what there thinking. They swabbed him and it wasn't strep so will know in a few 2 days what it is, but they said it could just be drainage from allergies, but there note sure. So were hoping just allergies. I'm just happy they didnt leave it as that it wasnt strep, I think its great that there making sure its not something else. And I'm so glad my baby is getting better!!

I also went by our local scrapbook store and got to pick up some new papers!! I got Max and whiskers, by Basic Grey and I cant wait to play with it!! I love it, its too cute!! I also got some other cute stuff to do a layout of my brother and his wife from there wedding. Well off to watch an online class that Donna Downey is teaching on live with prima. So good night.

Being sick stinks

I've been sick for, well I guess 2 days now. And I wish I could still be curled up in bed sleeping through it!! It started out with my oldest at the beginning of the week, then he was finw, or so we thought. They my youngest got pink eye, and then my oldest showed the same sings!! I really don't like pink eye! Took then to the doctor and everything was fine except the pink eye. Well we get home and my youngest takes a nap and wakes up screaming! Scares up to death, well when we get him and calm him down we notice theres something dripping out of his poor little ear. Anyways, some how his pink eye had turned into an ear infection and then on top of all of that both of them got the stomach virus. And of course since they got it, it meant mommy was going to get it too.

So the last few days have not been so nice and I haven't got to scrapbook like I wanted to. I was honestly trying to get some stuff done to try out for a design team, but I think it may have to wait another year. We will just have to see.....

Will see what happens. But I'm going to go for now and try and eat a little something, its been 2 days since I've ate, so I'm kinda hungry..... And then maybe take a nap while the little ones are down.

2 days....

Wow it's only been 2 days since I blogged last and it seems like so much longer!

I've done a little scrapping, I've almost finished two different minis and they've been fun, but I haven't had a lot of time to scrap. When we went for "taco night" at my sisters the other night, we got a HUGE surprise! My oldest brother, that I havent seen since I got married over 5 years ago, was there!! He only live one state over, but we hadn't been able to work it out to go back and forth, and we actually just moved this close 2 years ago, anyways.... My sister and her friend had took off the day before and drove all night to get him and bring him back, so that was a nice surprise!! So we have him here for a few weeks and its great!!

Well then that night I'm sitting here trying to scrapbook and I hear one of my little ones fussing, so I go back there and its my youngest and he says he doesn't feel good. I sat with him and tried to get him back to sleep and when I thought I had I tried to sneak out of the room, but he wasn't having any of that. So i took just enough time to do a quick clean up of my desk and headed to bead way early! I cuddled him till he went to sleep and for a while after and then I tried to put him back in his bed. That worked for a short time and then he was back in bed with me, we did that twice before he stayed in his own bed,lol. Well I thought things were ok yesterday morning, the kids were acting fine. And me and my hubby were suppose to go on a date, so we headed out. Well when we got back last night both boys were sick! I wont go into details but it was a night that we ran back and forth to the bathroom. So we had little sleep last night and both kids at home today. So its been a long day and I'm hoping that tonight is a little better, but it looks like its going to be an early one! Hopefully I'll finish the two book tonight or tomorrow, Ill post them when I do! Night

Such a long day!

Today was so long!! We had doctors appointments and where we go is about 45 min. away. Well we had one appointment at 8am and the other at 1:30 this afternoon.So it was ALL day!! I had 2 kids that weren't to happy with being stuck out for so long. One had to get shots and the other had to go see an ear, nose and throat doctor. So yeah it was great. There both good though.

I do have to say they did extremely well for feeling bad. We even went to a few scrapbooking stores and they helped pick out some papers and embellishments. They like to scrap with mommy too! lol. They did great on the ride home and once we got here my oldest wanted to nap, that never happens, hes past that stage. Hes only 5 but he never naps and he never chooses to nap on his own! But he laid down and napped for over an hour. But now both of the boys are up and getting into it already,lol. And now we need to go get ready for dinner at my sisters, taco night!! lol :)

Always on the run!

Forgot something and some pics of another project

I forgot something yesterday when I blogged. I watch some online videos on you tube and stuff, and I love it. The scrapbooking company Prima Marketing also has live classes a few times a week. Well I actually got to sit threw a whole class on Thursday!! I was so excited! Well when they do these classes they also have a chat that runs with it, its so great!! If you have questions you can ask and actually get them answered! Not only that, but you can get to know other scrappers around the world. Its nice, Anyways.... that also do giveaways when they have these chats, well I WON!!! I couldn't believe it! I won a giveaway from Tattered angels! Love them! Anyways I guess I just kinda wanted to brag!lol. But I cant wait to get my prize! I'll post a pick when I get it!!

I also have some pictures of a project I'm in the proses of for Mothers day. I think its kinda funny, cause I'm fallowing another blog that is starting a Blog Hop tomorrow, and there theme is from Shabby to Chic. Here's the blog, A piece of craft, But there taking things that were old and making them new. Well the reason I think its funny was because I wrote earlier this week that me, my mom, sister, our kids and a friend went yard selling, well I found a pretty little wooden box that I'm pretty sure use to be a music box, but all the stuff was pulled out of the inside. Well I liked the box, and so did my mom. Well I bought it and I wish I would have took a before picture, but it was pretty scuffed up, well I used some beautiful papers by Prima, and flowers, glimmer mist, modge podge, pretty bling, some lace and some butterflies. Well I dont think I'm dont with it yet, Theres still a few things I'd like to do but I'm posting some pictures anyways. But once I'm done with it, I'm going to load it with Prima flowers and bling for my mom for mothers day. I know she'll like the box and she'll love whats in it too!! lol

Well here it is so far, sorry the pictures aren't the More later

New layout and tons of other projects started.....

Well I got to go scrapbooking last night for the first time in FOREVER!!! I mean I scrap here at home by myself, but actually getting to go out and scrap around other people, its been about 3 months. So needless to say it was nice. Its like every time I go scrapbooking, I get re-energized. lol. Either way I had fun. My mom went with me and that was great! We really enjoy scrapbooking together. My sister actually just moved back around us and were getting her back in to scrapbooking, so its nice to to with them!

But I actually finished a 12x12 layout last night, and I haven't been really doing those, I've been more into the mini But I have 2 little ones, like I've said before and with my youngest I haven't even scrapbooked his first hospital picture, so I did it last night. But I think it took me so long because I couldn't find the right paper and I finally did! The papers by Websters pages, I saw it and loved it!! But here's what it turned out like!

I love the way it turned out. I love this little picture of him. I also got to use metal charms for the first time and I love those now! And I've used glimmer mist before, but I really like the way it turned out on these flowers, it worked perfectly. I just really loved the paper and thought it went great with the picture,lol.

I also started a mini album last night. I havent taken any pictures of it yet, but I should be done in a day or so. I have more than one project going right now,lol. I always do! I'm also working on a mothers day gift for my mom, witch I can post pictures of because my mom never gets on the net, so when I'm finished with it I'll post those too. But another thing I've started is a quilt! lol
I have to get some pictures up of the beautiful fabric. To be honest, me, my mom, my boys, my sister, niece and one of my sisters friends all loaded up in two cars this morning and went out yard sailing and that's where I found the fabric.

These people use to own a fabric store here in town and they closed it down, well they had all there fabric in there garage for a few months now, so they decided to have a garage sale. They had great material too! I got Basic Grey material and Amy Butler material!! I love it all!! lol. I might go back and get more!! I bought a ton of it! I bought some by the yard, by fat quarters, and buy jelly rolls! The colors are so great though!lol But I have a quilt top made out of Basic Grey already so now I need to get the boarder on it and the backing and I can start another one!! lol, just a side hobby!!lol Any ways..... I'll get more pictures soon! Keep tuned!lol

Family stuff and New things to play with

I've been away for a while, there's been non stop stuff going on here! One of my sons had to have allergy test and now has to get shots twice a week, but there already helping, bad allergies. We've been sick again! Glad that's over! My hubby started a new job, and then my dad had a heart attack.

It's been crazy!! Everythings ok now though, well its alright. My dad is doing ok, but hes being a man! He cant stand to sit around like the doctors told him to, stubborn!! lol, but hes doing better and my son can play out side like a normal kid now, so that's great!!! And my hubby is enjoying his new job.

So now back to scrapbooking!!!!lol. I've been watching different thing online, and I've gotten, I guess you can say kinda obsessed with a few things,lol. I'm totally loving tattered angels glimmer mist!!! Its great on all sorts of things, you can add just a light sheen to something or go all out and paint with it. And it all looks great!!! I've got a few things started, I'll have to finish them up and get them posted here so you can see.

I've also adventured into the world of Tim Holtz....... I'm loving the metals and grunge boards!! And I'm starting to dabble a little with alcohol inks.

And then I've always love Prima, but now I am totally digging the white flowers, all of them!! The innocent collection, the little white cameo roses, marshmallow lilliput roses, the snow tea roses, the e line flowers....... and so many more!!! Don't get me wrong I still love the already colored ones, but I like the fact that I can add whatever I want to theses flowers and make them match whatever I'm doing. And the fun thing is you can add glimmer mist to them, you can use the alcohol ink on them and everything, you can add glitter, its like the possibility's are endless!!
ooooh and that goes for butterflies too!!! lol. Anyways.....

Like I said I have a few projects started and my goal is to get them up by the end of this week, so here's me keeping my fingers crossed that I can get this stuff done and that not a ton of things come up!! lol but that's life hu?
So hopefully I'll be posting more later this week!!!!
