I am a mother. I am a wife. I am a sister, a daughter, an aunt, a cousin.
I am a scrapbooker.
I have always been artistic, it just took me a while to find my outlet. I sew, needlepoint, and draw. I also enjoy cooking and baking. I have dabbled in scrapbooking since high school by adding memorabilia to my pictures, but something was still missing.
I found modern scrapbooking after our first daughter was born and I have not looked back. I really do hope that someday, my children look at my scrapbooks and really get who I am and how much I love them. Within the last few years, I've been introduced to mixed media and well, the world will never be the same.
My husband of 12 years and I have two sweet little girls, aged 9 and 3. They are funny, sassy, sometimes naughty, silly, gorgeous, loving, bright, often cheerful, diva-esque little princesses, and they are the lights of my life. I am lucky to be married to my best friend; I swear, I love him more every day. In real life, I am a portrait and wedding photographer, but my true loves are all at home. :)

back to work?

Monday was back to work after 2 weeks off and it was ROUGH. Busy, busy, busy! The boss decided to merge the Howell office with ours and so we've been sorting, organizing and just trying to make it all work. I've tried to help the Corunna office get caught up from some things that should have been done before Christmas. In the meantime, I'm getting waaaay behind in the wedding department; I really should buckle down and pump out some albums this week. Le sigh.
I plan to have some scrap time this weekend; I need to finish up my DT requirements for the ever so wonderful Commit2Paper kit and I'd like to work on a challenge or two that I've signed up for.
I go back and forth on the craft space issue. I use our "dining room"--trying to put all my stuff in a little cabinet and get it off the table in time for dinner. I can have the basement if I want it but then I'll be lonely. Boo. But but but! Then I'll have practically unlimited space, a larger area to scrap with and I should be able to leave the Cricut and sewing machine set up all the time. Hmm. I think I need to move downstairs. So I guess tomorrow I need to start cleaning, organizing and throwing away. ;)
That is, of course, assuming that my nose stops running long enough. Let me tell you, I look HAWT with Kleenex shoved up my nostrils, my mouth hanging open so I can breath and nice big black circles under my swollen and puffy eyes. Gotta love a good cold. :D
And so, my dear friends, I leave you with this:
