One of the good things of this is scraps of paper were used for the calendar dates.
We purchased some Maya Road tins to put the extra dates, birthday photos, and months in. You can see one of them here in front of the calendar. I think they turned out great! :)
Also the Life Preservers Kit Club is having an online crop January 2-4th. Although it is my weekend to work I plan on getting my scrap on Saturday for sure! I hope you can join us for some wonderful challenges and creations!

I decided this year that the Christmas stockings we had needed to be replaced. So i looked and looked for some that I liked and finally found some at Sears. But they needed a little altering, I added some ribbon and embellishments along with some iron on letters and I must say that they aren't bad at all!
And some final news. I applied for the Life Preservers Design Team. Since November I have been participating much more on their message board and have really enjoyed getting to know the ladies. It is weird how you can really feel a bond with others via the computer. Well I did not make the Design Team. Albeit I am upset but the ladies who made the DT are wonderful designers and are well deserving. And there is always next time right? But I did make Guest Design Team artist for January by getting second place in the sketch challenge. The winner made the design team so I was runner up! LOL Story of my life....2nd place. But I will take it. The Lord puts me where he wants me and it is his will not my own. Here is the page that I did using November kit from Life Preservers with the sketch that was provided.
Thanks for visiting. I am doing a 25 days of Christmas but I ran out of patterned paper. I am using November 12 Fridays patterned paper so am waiting to receive some more. I wish I could discipline myself to write on the blog more often but I just can't sweat it right now. It will happen when it happens. Merry Christmas my loved ones!

I think the most exciting thing for me is that these were from some sketches that I drew myself! I just need to figure out how to draw my sketches on the computer so I can share them. I haven't found my Adobe PSE disc so I convert it from PC to Mac. There must be an easier way! Well thanks for looking friends!

This is from my own sketch! The verse is on a transparency provided in the kit. There were no alphabet in the kit other than the transparency sheet so I made my own by doodling on the patterned paper! The pictures are from Emmas Sparks Hike in 2006.
The below video is from Emma's Veterans Day program at school. A public school! Who says God is not in our schools? He is alive and well!

The newest addition to the Jamerson household! One of the two hermit crabs that Emma had to get!!! I think she named this one Julia! LOL
I completed 6 pages while away using my Summer Survival Homegrown Kit! All are scraplifts from the PDF's provided with the kit program!!! This first image is photos of the helicopter service for which I work.
Another Homegrown lift. Pictures are of Emma at Fun Day at her school!
One of my favorite photos of me!!! Journaling describes my Perfect Day!
This is the house that Nights in Rodanthe was taped at!!! This was less than half a mile from where we stayed. Thanks Christy for pointing it out to me!
Start em when they are young! Emma with her new pink pole. Needless to say she was done after two casts!
Then I let her reel in my line just to show her how difficult it could be with the weights and lures we use and low and behold look what was on the end. A flounder! :)
When we left the Bridge Friday evening after fishing this is the view of the bridge! Pictures can't give this view justice!
This is the house that we stayed in in Rodanthe, NC. It is called Pappys Place and Midgett Realty was very impressive in their service.
Thanks for looking!!

The Fishin Hole is where a lot of our time and $ are spent buying tackle, fishing poles, and bait!
And my beautiful baby sporting her Hannah Montana sunglasses that Daddy Jr bought her!
I am not sure exactly what this is called but I assume it is to redistribute the sand under the bridge on Hatteras Island!
Thanks for looking at my pictures. Will share some scrappy stuff later on this week!

6 QUIRKY THINGS ABOUT ME
I was tagged quite awhile back by Heather and am just getting around to doing it here. Sorry Heather.
Here are some rules that Heather posted on her blog that go with this:
Link back to the person who tagged you
List the rules on your blog
Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of your own
Pretty simple,eh? Until you get to the 6 unspectacular quirks of your own. That's tough!
So I need to list 6 Quirky Things About Me....
1. I have to have butter on my spaghetti!
2. I have this morbid fascination about picking my toes! The cuticles and dry skin! Weird I know!! But the rules are quirky!
3. When I am driving and I have to stop or turn I have to turn the radio all the way down to "think" about it!
4. I sleep with 2 noise makers at home. My circadian rhythm is off due to my job so this helps somewhat.
5. I wanted to be a Marine Biologist my middle school and early high school years and work with Humpback Whales in their natural environment. Didn't pursue this because I was too much of a family girl to be that far from home for studies or work!
6. I can not study in a messy space. Everything has to be clean and in its place before I can think!
Okay so there you have it...that was harder than I expected. So I randomly picked 6 people from my google reader and here they are...
1. Jules at her blog!
