Join me - Become a Consultant

In March, I know - there is only about a week left, join my team and you will receive the Cricuit Art Philosophy cartridge bundle absolutely free!!!  Or you can choose $100 in select product credit.  This cartridge is wildly popular.  Remember the crop I had an invite to be a vendor at last month?   Well, a really nice lady bought the cartridge bundle from me - right off my Cricuit machine!!!  I was just going to start playing with it and create a display board of the cuts it creates, and she came up and wham, it was gone!   Now I get to order it again!  
This is a great deal!   Click on my website link and check it out for yourself!  

Happy Scrapping!

I'm BACK!!

It's been a wild and crazy year.   All sorts of things going on.   Just wanted to touch base and let you know that I am still here, and fully intend to keep this going.   I received a nice surprise the other day, an invitation to be a vendor at a crop this Saturday!  Short notice, but I jumped on it.   So I hope to gain new customers or at least new contacts to expand my business and my creativity!   I have a very busy couple of weeks ahead of me, starting with a Home Gathering on Friday evening, then Saturday from 9am to 9pm to Jonesburg MO to the crop!   Next Tuesday, I also have a Thirty-One home party (another business venture I am dabbling with, because I love the bags and the message).  The following Saturday, I get to go to an all day crop, hosted by my good friends Maureen and Mary Jo of First Class Scraps, as an actual scrapper!! I'm so excited I'm almost giddy!!  Normally I am a Close to My Heart vendor for them, but this is just a day crop.. and so I am just scrapping!   I have begun the arduous task of creating pages from when my kids were little, not current stuff.  And I have to say, I am enjoying it tremendously.  I was afraid to tackle all of those pictures, but now I am looking forward to it!   I just wish I had more time to do it on my own and not at a crop.   But work has been extremely busy (imagine payroll at year end with bonuses and W2's and then multiply that by hundreds of clients).   On top of that we have been doing some painting and redecorating - so my scrap room is a bit cluttered.   We are going to tackle that room next.   New base and wall cabinets, a nice long counter top.  I'm looking forward to having everything have it's place.  I will post pictures when I'm done!   It will be a while, but it will be worth the wait I hope!!  :)  The following week, Thursday evening, I am on a flight to Florida to see my parents.  My oldest brother is joining me.   He is staying longer, which isn't fair - lol - but it will be nice to see him and them.   He lives in Michigan and we don't get to see each other often enough.  I come back on Sunday - and then who knows what is in store for me then!!  Hopefully more business!  I have other things in mind around my scrapping... more details to follow if it looks like it might pan out.. I promise!  Have a great weekend and I hope to update with some more info, and the March Close to My Heart special soon!
Speaking of that, the February special revolves around our Studio J digital scrapbooking.  Buy a 5 pack (5 2 page layouts) and get 5 additional 2 page layouts FREE!!  Sweet deal actually! 
Happy Scrapping!!!

OMG - Has it really been that long???

Sorry all... I've had quite the time getting back out here to update!  Been working on getting recertification hours for my Certified Payroll Professional  designation, and summer, summer vacation and kids birthdays have gotten in the way! 

I have to get ready for the crop at the Drury Inn in Chesterfield July 30- August 1.  Figuring out what to do for the make and take etc.  Haven't had a whole lot of time for scrapping, much to my chagrin... hopefully will get some time to get some artwork back out here! 

We have a wonderful campaign coming up soon!  More details to follow soon!  :)  Don't forget we have Studio J, the wonderful on-line scrapbooking tool!  No software to download!  Check it out at my site:

Keep scrapping!

Our Easter Bunnies!

When we let our dog Winston out this morning - he headed to the little tree by the house and was sniffing around something.  When Chris and Courtney went out to see what he was sniffing around they saw four baby bunnies!!!!  The are so darn cute!  We put a sled up to hopefully help block the wind.  We have had a group of rabbits in and out of our back yard all winter, they eat my bushes.. I don't like that, but love animals too much to do anything about it.  Now they had some babies....  and they are so darn cute... If I can just keep Sierra from picking them up and adopting them all, I will be lucky.  But we keep telling her that if they get our scent on them, then the mommy won't come back.  They are the cutest little things.  I hope momma comes back and keeps them warm and safe.  The challenges now are to keep Winston away from them... and from chasing momma away.  Harry is blind - so he won't see them to be able to chase them. 
We feel very fortunate to have our own Easter Bunnies right in our back yard!  I can feel the scrapbook pages forming!
