Well, I thought I was going to have the pictures of my recipe book on here by now but I had to work late so.... will try to have them up by tomorrow! I did get started on my 25 Days of Christmas book! Actually I have been getting it together for the last couple of weeks now and only have a few more days to go! Its nice having it done and just being able to record daily activities and such. I got the idea for this, of course, from Ali Edwards. She has been doing this for the last few years and it is really a cool idea! I like it because for some reason I have never scrapped a whole lot of Christmas pictures. Dont know why, just never have. Maybe I'm intimidated because it's such a special time and I dont want to "mess it up"....thats dumb, I know! Anyway, with this "journal" of sorts, I will have a day to day account of everything our family did during the month. And I will also add smaller size pictures whenever I can! I think this will work out better for me in the end. I'm gonna try it out anyway! Are any of you doing this? Let me know if you are and if you have any cool tips. I will post the first few days of my Christmas journal tomorrow! Thanks for dropping by and have a good one.

Cyber Monday Blues

Hi all. Boy have I got the blues! I spent my allowance over the weekend and now there are some really great deals via the web today and I'm broke!! Man was it hard to resist those Vera Bradley deals they sent me! I mean, come on, the exact purse I have been wanting was on sale 1/2 price! It was hard, but I resisted. I'll live..... On another note, I am very excited to be teaching a class tomorrow night at Charleston Scrapbooking in North Charleston. It's a really cute "favorite recipes" book made with the milk chocolate chipboard book by Basic Grey and decorated with the Nook and Pantry line of paper! Instead of using traditional index cards to write the recipes on, I substituted shipping tags with the little strings attatched! When you need it, just take the tag out of the pocket and throw it in your purse to take to the store if needed! I am in the process of taking pictures so I will post them tomorrow! Hope you like!

Autumn Blessings card

I know that I haven't posted in a while and I am going to try and get better at this one day, ha! Anyway, I made a card the other day using the gorgeous paper line Indian Summer by Basic Grey. The colors are so pretty that I have a hard time actually cutting in to them! They really remind me of Fall, and with this blast of cold air we are having it just seems right to be making something Fall like! So... I wanted to make some cards to send out to a few friends and family letting them know I am thankful for them! This is my first one and hopefully tonight or tomorrow I will get to a few more! I will post them as soon as I get them done! Thanks for looking,

A day at the beach!

What a beautiful day at the beach we had! The whole family (well almost whole) came out to Folly Beach to celebrate the end of the rain that has plagued us for the past couple of weeks...ugh!! My nieces Ashlynne and Katie, Cianna, Ashlynne's friend, Brianna and her best friend Brooke, Colin, Brianna's boyfriend, my beautiful sister Amy, my husband Henry and my mom were all there! All in all it was a great day! We hope to go back next weekend too. It's pretty cool that we live so close to the beaches. We really don't have to go on vacation to enjoy such a beautiful place! Well, thats all for now..... more later!

I'm posting some pictures of my daughter's 17th birthday party that was on the 30th of March! hey, better late than never, huh? I hope everyone has a beautiful and blessed Easter tomorrow and I will be spending mine with my family. We are having dinner at my mother's house and afterwards an egg hunt for my nieces Ashlynne and Katie! to me, that's really the best part of the day. Nothing like watching the little ones look for those eggs! See ya' :)

I'm sure I gained at least 5 pounds! thank you Robin for a weekend I wont soon forget! and remember......i'll pop a cap in your *** if you act all whackkk! hahaha
