Strep Throat

Confirmed with doctor today! I so didn't feel like getting out to go to the doctor. Then to top it off it took Walgreens 2 hours to fill my prescriptions. I was not a happy being. So I came home and took my Robitussin with Codeine hoping I would sleep as I haven't slept well in 3 days. I slept 2 hours. Yes you read right 2 hours. So I leave you with a couple more calendar pages before I take more drugs to find respite.

Feeling rotten

Well my dd turned 8 yesterday. This past weekend she had a sleepover. One of the girls was sick. So guess what..............I have been in the bed for 2 days. I am missing work tomorrow. My throat feels like "road rash". My head is congested. I just feel horrible. I am going to the doctor in the morning. I have not had my throat hurt this bad since I was in middle school and got Strep all the time. So I am leaving to go back to bed but I will leave you with a couple more calendar pages. Enjoy!

I was tagged by Amy to share some facts about me, based on my MIDDLE NAME!!! Here are the rules:
1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name).
3. After you are tagged, you need to update your blog with your middle name and your answers.
4. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and that they need to read your blog for details).

Long time no see...

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile! I have this guilt thing of not wanting to post if I don't have any creative things to share. I need to get over that. But it is hard when I see my fellow scrappers posting pages every day! I am envious of them! I have been attempting to keep the house clean. Well I did get it fairly clean but it just doesn't last. We finally got some snow here. A scant dusting at best. I love this picture I took of Emma and Ansel. Emma took Ansel out one morning. She threw on my robe and shoes. I think she looks so funny and cute. I wish we would get about 12 inches of snow. But it doesn't look like it is going to happen this winter.

Well I have finished my first projects for DT with Faith Based Pages. I will post them in a few days. Here is a picture from my calendars I created for 2008 for my in-laws. I used Karen Foster 2007 calendar papers and forced myself to use scraps. I lifted the pages from a Ck magazine. I am pleased with the results.

Well I must go tuck in my babies! Best wishes!

A little toot!

No not that kind silly........LOL I had two of my creations picked up by Scrapstreet and it is in their January ezine. Here is the link If you click that link then go to magazine I have a card and another altered project in there. So exciting. I am still working on organizing my digital photos. Been uploading to Walgreens today. Got January-May 2007 uploaded. It is so time consuming. Well I thought I would share a picture of the aircraft I work in as I have been working this past weekend. Enjoy!

Before I close I thought I would share some recent finds. is a Christian scrapbooking site that I have been lurking on the blog for about a month or so. I am really enjoying their posts. Combining my love of the Lord with my passion for scrapbooking is great. They are doing a scripture challenge that I am going to attempt to do. The first week we have to find scripture about the word "faith" and do a page or card. Whatever we feel led to do. I am really excited. Also I signed up for a book club on The book for January is A Thousand Splendid Suns. I have ordered it from so I hope to start reading it very soon. Hope you can join in!!!

WOW another year gone by!

I know this is cliche to say but I have a hard time believing another year has gone by! I have been working on backing up my photos from 2007 for several days now. I want to make an order from Walgreens before their special ends for 10 cent prints. I love looking through my old photographs. Apparently blogspot is having some issues because I can't upload any photos now. I will try again to share with you! Have a blessed night!
