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. :)

my weekend's work

had some good mojo this weekend and kept up with the scrapping! i was working with the soon to be release commit2paper january kit, which was bo bunny beau jardin. very pretty paper, i had lots of fun cutting it up and otherwise distressing it!

in other news, this sinus infection again is kicking my ass. i could barely function sunday and today wasn't much better. andy was sweet and took me to the doctor's office. the doc put me on a heavy duty antibiotic and told me that if it didn't take care of it this time, he would refer me to a specialist. the congestion isn't so bad in my nose and chest but i am having blinding heachaches and very sharp, severe pain around my left eye when i cough, sneeze... it'll get better.
we made pot roast for dinner tonight and got to enjoy dinner and a show. i'm very proud of myself though, i actually didn't lose my temper this time. i think i finally may have a punishment that might work for her. i told her that if she doesn't want to eat her dinner, that's fine but 1) that's it for tonight, there is nothing else to be served and 2) she can put her plate in the kitchen and very nicely and calmly go upstairs, put her jammies on and spend the rest of the evening in her room. she hates playing by herself. actually, she hates the IDEA of playing by herself. once she's up there and finds one of her gazillion toys to play with, she's fine. so we'll give it a try.
here's a good one--evie had a sleepover this last weekend and what did mom and dad do? yeah, that's right--we went grocery shopping. oh, how sad. dinner and a movie? nope. hot monkey love? nope. almost 3 hours and over $350 in grocery shopping, baby. yeah.
