Little Update

All is well, just a few hiccups :)

Our basement flooded 2 weeks ago...I'm talking big time.
6 inches of water everywhere.
Everything that was on the floor or affected by water had to go.
So right now my scrapbooking is on hiatus...(all of my stuff is ok..Don't worry:)) I just have it all put away so that we can work on fixing our basement again. Its amazing how much stuff you can accumulate in 12 years....yikes....stuff we didn't need!!
So ya, that is my life now....a life full of water, damaged walls, Rubbermaid tubs full of stuff everywhere LOL

Mission 0015 is here!!!!

Head on over to MC for a fab new challenge!! I quite enjoyed this one :)

This is what I came up with....

On a sadder note, Jeff's Auntie passed away on Tuesday. Marion was a wonderful lady, with a kind heart and lots of love! I am quite sadden by this, she was young and has 3 kids and 4 grandkids...its just so awful. Jeff is in Kelowna right now for the and the kiddies stayed home. Cant quite afford 5 people jumping on an airplane for the weekend :(

Anyways, as Julie would say: peace out!!!

MC 0013

Getting crafty..feeling is looking up :)
Need some inspiration...head on over to Mission to Create, the new Challenge is great!

This is what I came up with for it :

Tuesday, March 09, 2010


is really hard for me right now....Im not sure why? Im not depressed but I have very low self esteem and motivation to do anything! Anyways, its 8 weeks since I quit smoking and no doubt it has something to do with my life issues right now. Im happy to have quit, and do feel like Im doing really well (no real desires to go back to it) but Im not happy with the weight gain and emotional probs that go with it. I just need to get past this and then I will be golden :)

On a happier note: Mission to Create has post challenge #0012....whooot!! I'd love for you to play along!!!

Here is what I did for the challenge:

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

It was seriously hard for me to do mostly black(even though that was my chosen concept.. tee hee) but I love how it turned out! I love the way the DT rocked this favorite so far!!
Here is my take on the challenge, I used all concepts.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Birthday!!!

Well, it certainly was a hectic holiday season, I have to say Im glad its over! We didnt have a great one even though it was Jadie's 1st Christmas. We had some unfortunate things happen on Christmas Eve and that seemed to set the tone for the Holidays. Anyways, everyone is fine now and we move on......

My Little Jadie just had her 1st Birthday!!!....I can believe that my little angel baby is one! How did that happen??? It's been a hard year for us but without our beautiful girls, it would have been much worse!

HAppy Birthday Princess!!!
