Creative Juices Flowing

Back from a wonderful weekend in Jamaica with my family. The purpose of the trip was a memorial for my Grandmother who died 2 years ago. We added her head stone to her grave and added flowers. It was a small and beautiful ceremony that I know she would have loved. I will posted picture soon.

GOOD NEWS:  I came home to such wonderful news. I have been selected as one of the newest design team member of Dirty Scraps . I'm so excited I can't even contain myself. I feel so blessed to be apart of such a talent group of women.

Before I leave here are a couple Pages I did before I left for challenges currently up at TallyScrapper ... Head on over there. There are some great challenges up right now. Great for getting those creative juices flowing. I also have a photography challenge up over there as well. Click here to post your photo.

Lesson Learned ....

The other day I was in deed thought about a friend of mine. We're not really close but when we see each other we talk and laugh and crack jokes. We are connected through facebook so I occasionally see what's going on based on status updates. Every time I see him he's smiling and joking and really enjoying life. He's had some medical problems for a while now but most of the time when you see him you would never know. He never lets it get him down. I love his spirit and his character and wish I could be more like that. Cause honestly there is no reason complaining and crying over things we can't change. Or complaining about something that we make no attempt to change. Anyways I saw him the other day and commented on a depressing status update he had on his wall (which was very out of character for him). He explained that things were more serious than first thought but that he had taken a step back to recharge and go at it again. And as usual he was cracking jokes, laughing and radiating with that beautiful spirit I'm always so envious of.

We could all learn something from his view on life. Enjoy life to the fullest and when you feel like you can't take anymore:  step back, recharge and go at it again.

I'm not preaching or anything just wanted to share.

Saturday Afternoon Movie And Niah's New Dress


OK I went and saw Eclipse...Loved it. I am very happy with the new director. He did a wonderful job of staying as true to the book as possible. Now that I was able to see the story on the big screen it makes my heart hurt for Jacob even more. I love his spunk and his drive but I feel bad that he has to be in love with someone that is obviously in love with someone else. Currently slowly reading Breaking Dawn. Heard that they will be splitting this one into 2 movies. Good more to look forward to.


Finished a cute little dress for Niah that she wore to the movie. She made me feel so good because she was so proud of it. I let her pick the fabric which made her even more excited about the dress. She wanted it down to her ankles but I decide it would be better mid-calf. I'm just so happy she likes it enough to brag that her Mommy made it for her. LOL
