When one door closes, another opens

The last day of January, can you believe it? I can't, where did the days go? Though tomorrow brings a new month full of fun and excitement! When I think of what all that has transpired over that past years, where my life was..and where I thought I would be, I am truly Blessed.
I have been stalking the CHA releases! You should check out my Scrappinnchattin fb page. . There are alot of great products that were released this past weekend at CHA, I just wish I could have gone ..but then I would have been the one standing there "drooling". LOL. Second thing, I am so stoked, I won something on another blog and FB'd it..meaning, I shared their link on my facebook and they picked the winners, I won on My Minds Eye release Stella & Rose Collection and Gertie & Hattie Collection! wow now that was fun, I cannot wait to get those collections in my pocession. Here is the link to see those and more !! I am really loving both lines, as I have two granddaughters and one Grandson on the way, so this is perfecto'...yay.

Well in other news; Redoing this scrapbook room has taken a sudden stop, I got a new laptop, new external hard drive and new Printer...wooohoo. Needless to say I am trying out tables in the scrapbook room to help with this, changing it up! But had to get the new laptop out and get it going so I can at least get the printer hooked up. So I have created once again, ANOTHER MESS! but isn't that what you do, make a mess to clean up the mess and rearrange the mess? Look for pictures soon as well as the next blog update, as I get the pictures in, I will be posting about our Friday night goodbye to next blog will probably involve tissues!!

Today I am working on prayers, prayer for my Sister in law who has had a rough time of it, her health has been really bad and right now..prayers for her to get Stronger, to get better, to live without hospitals and doctors, and for her to be with her two sons and her husband. If you could for a moment sometime today, say a small prayer for her.  I will be heading to the hospital and making the visits. Another prayer I need you all to say, for Susie, she is such a sweet lady I am blessed to know this woman for she is such a super person with the biggest heart, she has been in the hospital.  So for these two that are dear to me, I am really doing alot of praying and thinking positive thoughts.

Stay tuned on my return to the blog, because things are changing! Please comment on your favorite new CHA releases, its fun to see what others like, what others come up with share..I will share mine if you share yours..Have a Great Monday..the last day of January

Lots of Changes...

Well its January 2011 and already facing new changes in my life. After working for All About Scrapbooks for four and a half years, sadly our favorite local scrapbook store is closing down! 12 years in business is awesome for a store and with this economy. Therefore, I will be making a new way for me, I am teaching classes from home! We will see how that goes and hopefully be able to keep in contact with a lot of friends from AAS. Which leads me to the first class..Schedule Saturday February 5, 2011.  "A Day in the Snow" This two page layout will inspire you to get those snow pictures out that you just took and put them on this fun layout.  Cost of class $18. If you cannot make the class, don't worry, I will do up a kit for you. Everything with a picture of the layout will be in the kit, exception of the Stickles used on the snowman. I used Ice Stickles, you can use any of the clear sparkley stickles. I am working on a video for the techniques I used...stay tuned for that to come. 

This is the complete layout. Crate Paper line Snowday, Lifestyle die (QK) Snowman. 

Another project going is my Inspired All About Me album is in the works. Wow..I am using a combination of different lines from Webster's..and I am loving it!! Here is a sneak peak..

I can definately create a class out of this, however, You may have these products at home, if you are interested, let me know and we can sit down and def go over it!! I love creating and I am told that I why not just put it out there and inspire you to get creative..everyone has that creativity in their blood!! 

I am going to miss my outlet at co-workers/friends. I am going to work hard here and get my classes here set so that everyone still has a place to learn and be creative..

Pages in progress...

Update on the family life:
Savanna is still keeping me busy, with her preschool and dance, AWANAS..she is getting back into the groove of it all after a long Christmas Break..I am happy that break is over! LOL. My daughter is 18 weeks pregnant and in Washington State. I miss her so much!! My son is doing well and growing into a responsible man at the age of 21 he has been working for MHI for a few years now. I am very proud of him. Gabbi and Sammy are quite the characters, and Minnie and Charlie, they have not met yet, I hope it stays that way for awhile. So that is the happening in my life. Thank you to all of you who have shared your time with me. I will miss you at AAS and hopefully see you here on line or on my FB ScrappinNChattin page, which linked to my regular Facebook account. So you will be seeing alot there as well.

Happy New Year and God Bless You All
