This is my personal blog that hopefully others will enjoy finding information on projects, ideas, etc. that I have created, scraplifted or borrowed :)

New Years...What will I do different next year?

I am not always good about sticking to my resolutions but this year I figure I will focus on three. 
  1. Take a picture (at least one) every day and Scrapbook them.  My mom bought me an Easy Scrapbooking 2010 Calendar.  You save each page and you can (if you want) cut the date off and then use it for a photo mount, I think I will keep the date on and see what comes of taking one picture each day and at the end of 2010 Scrapbooking the year.
  2. Drink more water.  I drink WAY too much soda so I am thinking of ways to drink more water.
  3. Be a better Wife and Mother.  You know I pray for this every week at Church and sometimes in between but I think I will make a resolution to do at least one thing a week that helps me feel like I am being a better Wife and Mother.
Best wishes on a fun and exciting (if you can make it up to Midnight) New Years Eve!

Play dates???

Both of my boys had play dates today.  One went to a friends house and one had someone come over.  It is so funny to me to think about "scheduling" play dates.  I mean, my goodness do kids need date calendars and blackberry's? Actually yes, mine could use some if I could count on them to keep them up, but since I know it is my responsibility I just try to keep track of it.  I have everything I can remember to put down in my blackberry but like most things then it is only there for me to see and not my husband or the kids so I become the sole person responsible for it and the items schedule on it.  I think for 2010 I will try to find some creative way to keep a calendar for everyone to see and use...maybe with the Cricut Calendar Cartridge...if I can manage to sneak and buy one before the new year :)

Why is there never enough?

So I am on "leave" (I have a blackberry which is attached to me so I am never ever really on leave) this week from work and of course that does not mean just sitting around eating Christmas candy all I had my boys (the girls were at the sitter) because my son had 2 doctors appointments and I have taken all 4 before and it was not a good idea.  We left the house at 8am and between the appointments, lunch and running errands to get some items for my daughter's 2nd birthday we ended up back at home at 4pm.  Then I used my Cricut to make a sign for my 12 year old cousins baskbetball game, fed the kids, got them ready and headed out to the basketball game at 6pm.  Then when I got home I gave the baby a bath, asnwered some emails, ate a bowl of cereal, put the kids to bed and now am logging on the computer and my husband starts to complain because we switched sides of the bed a few weeks ago and he decided now he does not like it...all I can do it is think why is there never enough?  Never enough time in the day, never enough energy to get it all done, never enough money so we could afford a bigger house where my husband could have his own room and have whatever side of the bed he wants (LOL), never enough to give as much to everyone else I want to.  Why is there never enough?  Maybe that is not the way to look at it.  Maybe there is more than enough and I just don't use it or value it or cherish it like I should...I guess some days it is just easier to be run down and look at it from the glass half empty perspective and some days it is half full.  Tonight was a half empty night...I am praying for a lot before I go to thing will be for it to be a half full morning :)  May all of your days be half full days!

3rd Grade Teacher Survival Kit

I made this 3rd Grade Survival Kit and Christmas gift for my 8 year olds 3rd grade teacher (from the class because I am the room mom).

New to Blogging

Hello. This is my 2nd time blogging but really my first because I am not sure what I did the first time. I enjoy looking at other blogs that I see links for mostly from the Cricut website so I thought I would try my own. I hope I am able to keep it up and add some items that may be useful to others!
