Congrats darlin I will get your package to you asap!!!! Hope everyone has an amazing day!!!

Here are a few more Layouts I did on Saturday with my fabulous friend Kari, the mojo was flowing freely that evening, and even her kids got involved! Good times! I di all five of these layouts in about 5 hours which is really good considering how much talking there was and inhaling of salt and vinegar chips and mini peanut butter cups ;)

And here is a paperweight I made for Ray, he came home to it yesterday on his desk, I think he kinda loves it!

So to celebrate all these amazing girls, not mentioning any names, Kari, Koren, Annette, Dawn, Daryth, Rachel (even though you shouldn't be included cause you for some ridiculous reason have retired from scrapbooking), and the list goes on.....I am doing a GIVEAWAY!!!

Happy thoughts

Well I have been the worst blogger so far this year, so much going on in my world. Dawn, one of the girls I scrapbook with has taken a HUGE leap and done what so many of us wish we could do, she is opening up her own scrapbooking store!! This is so fantastic and we are all super thrilled for her and ready to break down the doors to buy it all up ;)

Dawn has also made a dream come true for me as well! She has asked me to teach classes at her store!! This is super exciting as it is right up my alley and I already have a ton of ideas going through my head. Thank you so much for thinking of me Dawn. I am so pumped! You can visit Dawns blog here the store opens in June!!

Check out what I did to Taylas hair for Crazy hair day! She said she loved it and wants to do her hair like this all the time. Ha ha!

On another note, if you have read the book Water for Elephants, go see the movie they did a fantastic job, and I loved every minute! Not to mention Robert Pattison looks quite dreamy with color in his cheeks! Two thumbs up from this avid reader and movie buff ;)

Right now I am reading a handful of books and have them throughout my house....The Happiness Project, Shit my Dad says, Memory Keepers Daughter, A wolf at the table, and I think I am forgetting one. I heart books.

Today and always I am sending out happy positive thoughts to my best friend, She is going for her 3rd try at In-Vitro tomorrow. It has been a long emotional roller coaster ride for her and her hubby, and I am looking forward to crying tears of joy when she tells me the news. Please dear God if you are reading my blog or listening to my heart, give those two a baby. You know they would be amazing parents and deserve this gift of love and life. I also vow to throw her the best baby shower anyone has ever seen, and to lavish love and attention on this new little person. Amen.

Please whoever reads this send her happy thoughts of healthy babies, and a growing belly! Who knows she could even have more than one!!

I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday! Treat each day like it's your birthday!

PS. If you have not checked out Pinterest yet, what are you waiting for? It is my new addiction, inspiration 24/7, love it! Go here now

the happiest place on earth isn't Disneyland!!!

it's right here in my happy little art studio....This has always been a huge dream for me to have an art room with walls and windows. I was so happy with my paint choice the name of the paint is Echo lake.....makes me happy ;)

The curtain rods are from Jysk and were a steal at only 7.00 a piece! I love that I can display all my latest pages and some old favorites, like the one of my great Grandpa.

All the furniture in the room is from IKEA, another very happy place that I could spend forever in. I got all my baskets off Kjiji for only 2.00 each!! Awesom deal! and I have a ton of spares. I really purged when putting stuff back in here, so I actually have empty drawers and boxes which I am sure will take no time at all to fill.

I cannot wait to find the time to actually scrap in this space, I think this weekend we have an appointment ;) Happy creating!!!

hello. its me again.

Wow, I have been a very neglectful blogger. Man life is busy, developing out basement, this includes my new art studio! Holidays, being the owner of a booming company, dealine after deadline. Trip to Hawaii, Sasakatoon. It just never ends. And I am grateful for it all.

Just a little re-cap of some of the best and worst moments of 2010

Best gift of Christmas 2010: Shiatsu foot massager (underneath my desk, and working my little piggies right now as I type this)

Best achievment of 2010: Selling our house, and buying the new one,only 1200 square feet more ;)

Most appreciative moment: Having over 15 people that love us, help us move. Thank you everyone!!!

Greatest moment of 2010: FRONT ROW CENTER at Jack Johnson in Vancouver with some super cool chicks!

Greatest lesson learned in 2010: DO NOT GOSSIP! It is very bad for your health especially when you ass dial someone as you are gossiping about someone they love. not good.

Saddest moment of 2010: Accepting that my babies are growing at warp speed and I have to just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Greatest scrapbook product of 2010: Dear lizzy line by American Crafts. The bomb.

Best girls to scrapbook with in 2010: Annette, Koren , Kari, Natalie, Giselle, Courtenay, Brianne, Rachel, Daryth. You girls kick a$$.

Can't wait to see what unravels in 2011 ;) Its going to be epic!
