Hardest job ever...

Being a mom is the hardest job I have ever had! I wouldn't trade it for anything but WOW it can really wear you down in a day. Madi, my youngest has had a fever on and off since Monday... go to the dr today to hear "Look's like you are getting over strep throat" BLECH! Poor thing is to small to tell me something is wrong and has been such a sweet loving sick child. I really feel for her. I was able to get caught up on all the laundry around here along with straightening up the house overall. I even got some scrapping done last night and finished my entry for the sketch challenge over at LPS. I will post it here as soon as the voting is done as it is a blind vote. I am REALLY pleased with the way it turned out! (to use so many "girly" papers for boy pics was a challenge for me) ... Getting ready to go play poker... have to head back to work in the morning cause Jason will be off to stay home with Madi. UGH...

Jan LPS pink ticket entry

A wedding layout entered using my "pink" ticket (which is actually a Tim Holtz ticket with no pink LOL) received in my Jan kit.

My submission for the LPS January sketch contest

Even though it didn't get any votes I am still very happy with the lo of my son. *go blue are sacred words heard around my house with my husband being a die-hard Michigan fan! This does feature the Jan LPS kit and I hand cut the football and added brown flock for texture.

A Fresh Start

Starting out in 2009 I was determined to get loads of scrappin done and not just collect the supplies. I love supplies... I really do. Sometimes I just want to go and sit in my room and look at them. Yeah weird I know but it makes me happy! I cannot believe what I have actually gotten accomplished so far. Being a busy working mom I used to not take the time for my passion but have realized it is so worth it! My husband and I bought a house in September (it was a nightmare process with all the changes that were going on but that is a completely different story!) so I have a whole room that I can devote to my scrappy things and peace and quiet (except for the jammin on my ipod). Will post some pics of my space soon!
