I almost forgot ….

that I even had a blog. I’ve been busy with quite a few different projects, but they are all moving ahead. Life keeps improving in many ways. I can’t mention most of them right now due to potentially peeping eyes, but I will share one day.

I am excited that I finally found the photos I needed for my dear friend Diane’s 6yo dd’s birthday present that was due like 2 months ago. bad .. bad! But it’s going to be so cool, a Bratz shadow box to match her room. She is actually a sophisticated little one (hard to believe at that age, but true) so she will truly appreciate it. I can’t wait to get it done. I’m thinking that will be one project for this weekend.

Another one is the challenges at Digital Scrapbook Pages. I’m starting to get smoother at creating pages so I signed up for a bunch of them this month. If you create 12 of the 19 or so challenges, you earn a huge mega kit. There’s a different kit each month and they are all really well made. Quality control at Digitals is really sharp. (I didn’t know such a thing existed in scrapbooking until I learned about how much is done at Digitals.) Here’s the link in case you want to check out the challenges. Digitals Forums Scroll down to the challenges category and check them out! They have been a great way for me to practice and learn digi. And it’s encouraging because you get a prize of a mini kit or something like it for posting the challenge.

And check out the new blog roll down the sidebar. It’s all the Digitals Designers blogs. Most are updated frequently, many daily, and many have freebies. So go surfing, dudettes!

Ayiana starts 4th grade on Monday. Hard to believe. She is growing up, and I finally know what that really means, maturing. Not only is she taller, she thinks differently, has different needs and interests. But she is still a barrell of fun! Nothing better than a good tickle fight between us. LOL Okay, well maybe a good hug is a bit better. Anyway, dinner time. I’ll try and check in more often. Maybe I’ll have some layouts to post this weekend.


Okay – I’m getting addicted to these things!

They are too fun, and I like what they say about me so far! LOL

You Are Low Maintenance

Otherwise known as “too good to be true”

You’re one laid back chica – and men love that!

Just remember that no good guy likes a doormat.

So if you find your self going along to get along…

Stop yourself and put up a little bit of a fight.

Whew, where has the time gone!!

June 16, we are half way through the month and I haven’t accomplished what I thought I’d have done yet. I have plenty of encouragement though, from my adopted aunt Glyn. I’ll have to get her picture into the slide show. She is my friend through the commonality of arthritis and fibrmyalgia, and she lead me to Jesus and the Church of Christ, which has saved me. I was so lonely with no direction before Glyn. And, to add one more thank you, I met Glyn thanks to the Reverend Dale who was head of the Ministerial Alliance in our town a few years ago. He introduced us to each other and we have been supportive to each other ever since. I also gained a good friend in Glyn’s daughter, Diane. She also has fibromyalgia along with other illnesses including a serious back injury. So we don’t go out and play tennis or hike the mountains, but we certainly gain strength from each other.

On another note, I am now a 1st Responder for Digitalscrapbookpages! I am very excited about it. I love their products, the people are great, they have designers that are very professional in their products and a great forum. Let’s see, what else, they have chats regularly, and challenges with great prizes. You get prizes during the chats as well. So come join us at Digitals.

Windy Wednesday

I’m glad I don’t have anywhere to go today. It is so windy, sustained between 25-35 mph with gusts up to 60 mph. I had to go out and make sure everything around the yard is weighted down. I’m spending some time on my favorite board today DigiShopTalk. They are the nicest people and very creative and fun. Stop by sometime and you’ll see what I mean.

Someday I’m going to get serious and instead of running all over the internet picking up gorgeous freebies I’m going to start learning to make digi pages with PSE 5. I get torn between wanting to get the house moved around and playing on the computer. I try to leave it off in the morning, but it’s always calling my name by the time I’m done with breakfast.

My dear friend Sharon from church has a cancerous tumor so please pray for her. My other dear friend Bill is in the hospital in a lot of pain. He is like my grandfather, so please pray for him as well.

If nothing else, we can be thankful for our health, even if it’s not perfect.
