This is what we woke up to on our Winter Storm of December 2010

 Savanna had such a good time out in the winter wonderland! Nothing like wrapping up warm and playing in the snow, only to be wet, she was trying to get the snow off her gloves!
 Taking a drive over to my Brother in laws house..down a back road, how awesome the scenery was, and how lucky to be able to see it for myself!
 We made a trip to the local Food Lion grocery store, here in Moyock, and what a site it was! Very busy as well, and they were out of Everything!!
 On our way home, down our street, a snowman not made of snow, but still so pretty in the snow! Our neighbor puts him out every year...isn't he a delight?..
 Our beautiful home, Home Sweet Home, covered in snow, such a beautiful site, getting inside this nice warm home was all I thought about..my venture out was nice..but home where its cozy warm, Better!!
Had to capture the sky, the snow on the ground, the beauty...at last we got snow, and we can actually say..we had a snowy 2010, lets not forget at the beginning of 2010 when we had all the snow...

December is about to close out the 2010 year! We will be heading into a New Year in just a few days, wow, do you remember all your goals for the year? Have you journaled your year? Scrapped all the pictures you took?...I know for me, this has been the toughest year, one I will never forget! I will be working hard to record the happenings, the events, the sad, the happy, the days that you have to just say..."it is what it is". I am happy we are closing another year, I am Praying for a Fresh New Year to bring Joy & Happiness to us all.

With that said, I am working on many projects, I sent gifts out..some I made, some I bought, I have tons of fun things in store for my hobby! Classes coming soon, layouts you just don't want to miss out on, and playing with the silhouette and the big shot are just a few of the things I can't wait to get my hands on upstairs! The Glue gun has made its appearance at the desk! 

Getting organized, in January, there will be pictures coming! Lots of changes in my room is in store. I can't wait. I am putting out a challenge, get organized, share pictures and ideas, first five will win a prize. Just send me the link to your pictures, share your ideas by leaving comments on here, and the most important part, describe your work area, give us some input on your space to go with your picture. Hows that for bringing in the new year?...

Leave your comments, share your ideas...this blog is for just that. I will be posting pictures of my creations I have just done and will be doing..soon..so look out...2011, Bring it on..

Be Safe out there in this Snow..God Bless

Holiday Excitement

Having a cup of coffee/hot cocoa w/marshmellows, got your mittens out, scarf, hat and coat! Trimming your tree, wrapping presents, singing Christmas carols and watching those wonderful past Christmas movies. That is what we all are doing,..forget the chaotic rush of buying gifts, start making them! Make time for YOU, I like to call those days "MEE TIME" !! 

Enjoy the snow as it comes and becareful. Pray for Peace and well being for everyone. Take lots of pictures and get ready to start the new year with new goals in mind, mark them off as you accomplish them, if you miss a few, don't worry you will def get to add it to next year !!!! 

Working at a Scrapbook store has its perks..seeing the new products come in, creating awesome pages for the store, trying and or hearing about products that are just released...working with fantabulous women who create and inspire. So when I go to work these days, I have the motivation to go in with fresh thoughts..I have missed all our customers and so fortunate that I get to see them again..yay me! God has blessed me with alot, and knowing I make a difference in the world of scrapbooking..is very satisfying to me! Working at home is a goal to of mine. Teaching from home and having traditional workshops of fun for us women is my next adventure. Girls night, parties for everyone..and most of all inspiring you to be you...Scrapbooking is what you want or make of it..it don't have to be all glimmer, embellished..it can be whatever you want it to be..so remember, pictures are the reason we put it in the book..those MEMORIES..we want to keep..and thats why I am here to help you all...In the coming weeks you will see a newer and improved blog..and updates on what I am doing. Please leave comments and let me know what you think. What I put on my blog are the things I love..so watch out...learning how to maneuver this blog and adding more..is gonna be fun fun fun...now..to go get the lil one from school and come home and get creating before I head to work tonight...Stay Warm out there...

It's beginning to look like Christmas....

Frosty was built early 2010, we actually had SNOW...isnt he adorable...Thanks to Savanna, Papa and Tina...

Oh my...The Christmas Tree is up, the stockings are hung, the outside is lit up, we had our first snow! Presents are being bought and wrapped! I love Christmas..birth of Jesus Christ. I love to share all the good things he brings to us.

Update: I have been really down..sick! Gone alot from traveling this year to getting sick..not a good year for us! Alabama saw alot of me...with my Uncle Austin and the cousins, Uncle Austin is now resting and up there with grandma and granddaddy and other families. Savanna got sick after a trip camping which put her in the hospital...a virus that took alot out of her! She is healthy and full of energy now though. Then I got back problems and go to dr, ended up with Diabetes as a diagnosis ..a week in the hospital and out of work for a few months to recoup ...well I am going back tomorrow, Monday for my first day back..at work. I miss all my customers and friends..it will be good to get out of the house again! My dad is in the hospital and has the same thing as my uncle had..he will be going home today though. Prayers are always welcome.

Now onto more creative news, I have a layout to be put up soon. I will be teaching on the concept of the layout next month! It will be awesome....and its DONE...haha. I love it when I am ahead of the game..hehehehe. I will post a pic soon!!! I am working on a baby album for my friend show just now had her baby yesterday..Haylee Michelle..ADORABLE...yes, I went to the hospital to see her and the baby..held the baby and I just melt..OMGOSH..she is precious..Congratulations, and I can't wait to add these pictures to the album and get that rolling, being I have a stack of baby embellies and paper to get it going...yay!!

Life is amazing, challenging, and most of all precious...please take time out to recognize those in need and the Children..This time of year is scary for me to think about with Children being Abused and Neglected...Reflect on your childhood and Pray for those who are growing up without a childhood. Merry Christmas..More pictures and fun Creative projects to be posted soon....
