About Me

My photo

I am a mother, a wife, a sister, a best friend a daughter, and artist.

If there was a way I could spend as much time in my studio creating as I do working my regular 40 hour job I would do it in a heartbeat. I am loving discovering myself through art and I can't wait to see where the journey takes me.



Happy New Year everyone...



My new job

So I started my new job on Monday. Everyone is so nice. My boss is really cool and such a very busy woman but she always is so nice and positive...I LOVE THIS as I had nothing even close to that at my previous position.

Christmas was very quiet around here because of the move and the unpacking. My daughter had a rough time not being able to see her friends or really celebrate Christmas. We got a little something for her but I know it still bothered her. All will be fine soon. We are going to have Christmas in January so it's going to be exciting.

I am going to ask hubby for the zutter bind it all and also the diztresser. I won the Donna Salazar papers and just cannot wait to get them. Her blog is so full of amazing projects from her 12 days of Christmas and beyond that as well. I love her style and I really want to make some cool journals and maybe open a lil Etsy shop...I am excited at what the New Year has in store for all of us.

Next week training kicks into high gear for me at work because the girl who will be training me returns from vacation on Monday.

My goal this weekend is to get the rest of the boxes out of here and in storage and hubby and daughter are going to get a bunch of things taken over to storage and goodwill for me in the next couple of days which will help a lot.

I really want to get projects started and done so I can get more pictures up here on my blog and hopefully get some followers. I might even try out for a design team once things calm down some more. THAT would be awesome.




Merry Christmas. Hope the holiday's are awesome for everyone.

Be Safe!!! Surround yourselves with love...be thankful for family and those you love around you.



Home in Arkansas

Wow it has been a crazy week. Hubby got to Virginia last Wednesday. We packed up the house and hit the road and we are at our new home in Arkansas. A lot of work still to be done but this already feels more like home than Virginia ever did.

Start my new job on Monday and I cannot wait. Very excited.

So we downsized big time and I no longer have a scrap room. Nothing but my counter top bar in the kitchen so I plan to utilize that. I kept all of my scrappy and art stuff right at the opening to the storage unit so I can get my goodies when I need them.

I left out my Teresa Collins welcome home kit so I can work on that. I got it over at scrappin deals and steals. Definitely check out the deals there they are awesome. I love everything I have gotten. here is the link. http://www.scrappindealsnsteals.com/
I need to take some more pictures for my welcome home mini but I am still going to try to at least get it put together.
Have a fabulous day!!!

Wednesday 12/8

A busy day today at work and home. Trying to stay motivated and keep moving forward.
I cannot wait to see my hubby next week..!!!!!!!!!!..
I can't wait until I can have my most awesome stuff unpacked and I can start creating again.

I am seriously thinking about asking hubby for a zutter binder for Christmas...I love mini's and I think considering my upcoming space issues that mini albums and journals are what I am going to concentrate on. So I'm pretty sure I would put a zutter binder to excellent use...

I will definitely send him the link.

It's late here and Im real tired.

Have a fabulous evening.



I WON!!!!

Ok so you see that Donna Salazar Blinkie...yah...well...I won her new collection...actually both of them...the other one is not even going to be revealed until December 13th.

I am so excited and I feel so so lucky. I have had to pack my entire studio and there is a good chance most of it will be in storage for a year or more. THIS IS NOT GETTING PACKED. I have been able to keep my favorite supplies in one bin to have access to and these collections are going at THE TOP!!!!

I am so inspired by these papers and I am looking so forward to creating some beautiful projects and posting them here as soon as I get them completed. 2011 is the year of art for me.

There are so many changes happening in my life and I feel more inspired than I have in such a long time. I feel the possibilities are endless and winning these gorgeous papers is just one more indication to me that I AM RIGHT!!!!

DONNA THANK YOU SO SO MUCH...What a fabulous way to end the year...

Merry Christmas to everyone. I hope your holidays are filled with joy and love.
