Excitement in the air...

Well, I'm on my way to displaying some of my decorated frames in a local scrapbook store. I'm SO excited! I went to A Scrapbook Store this evening in Mt. Pleasant and showed her some of my wares. She thought they were very cute. So, I just have to put my "logo" in them and take them back to her to display. She'll be back in the store on Thursday, so I'm hoping to go over then. I CAN'T WAIT!!! And, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will sell some, so keep your fingers crossed for me too. I know, I know....I need to put some pictures out here so y'all can see them, well if you want to see them. :)

I'm also excited because my oldest son is doing MUCH better with potty training. He's not telling us when he has to go, but knock on wood the last 2 days we've had NO accidents in the pull-up. I know we should be using "big boy" undies, but I just haven't yet, maybe this weekend. We had a BIG mishap earlier this week that was just SO embarrassing to me, but I've gotten over it, SLOWLY!!! It didn't even phase him, which really frustrates me. He's almost 3 1/2 and I feel he should be trained already. But, they say boys are slower (I believe that!) and each child is different. The only thing that keeps going through my head is my younger child (who just turned 1) is going to be trained before the older one. My cousin laughed as she said last night that the 3 1/2 year old would be asking for the car keys while still in a diaper. HAHAHA, NOT even funny I told her!!!!!

Another reason for excitement...all day/all night crop tomorrow. I CAN'T WAIT!!!!! It's going to be GREAT! I have to get my stuff together, but I'm SO looking forward to it! Lots of exclamation points in this paragraph, can you tell how excited I am!? :):) I just wish my 2 best friends from home and my cousin were here, so we could crop and gab together, but I will be thinking of them while I'm there. I'm hoping I can get LOTS done! It's 14 hours, so I'm hoping more than 5 pages will get done.

And, one more reason for excitement, my husband's sister, her husband and their son are on their way down here. They are stopping in Atlanta to see his brother, and they should be here on Monday evening. It's going to be fun to hang out with them and let the kids play! We haven't hung out with them in a LONG time, just the 4 of us anyway! So, we're planning on letting the kids play and the parents will watch them and reminisce (that's my husband's take on it), while sipping on some COLD brewskis. :):)

Enjoy the weekend! I know I will!!!!!!!!

Late and all is quiet

Lately, my creative juices start flowing after the boys go to bed, and it's a little quieter. The bad thing is I want to stay up and just keep working on whatever it is I'm doing: scrapbooking, making frames, etc. I do that and then suddenly realize is 12:30am and I NEED to go to bed, so I can be awake with both eyes open the next morning, when the 2 rugrats rise and shine. Lucky for me they aren't super early risers. I'm extremely thankful for that!

It's nice to have the quiet. Don't get me wrong, I love the noise that happens in this house, I don't think I would trade it for anything. (people that know me and are reading this are thinking that I probably need some sleep after that comment) :) I complain about it, probably too much if you ask my hubby and parents. :):) But, someday those noises won't be there, and I'll be wishing they were. I try (REALLY hard some days) to remember that I should enjoy the noisy times; the giggling, laughing, yelling, screaming, crying (okay, but how do you enjoy crying, unless it's not your child). However, when they're sleeping, be it a nap or they're down for the night, the peace and quiet is a nice sound!

With the peace and quiet today/tonight, I was able to work on some picture frames and magnets. Pictures will come soon, in case you would like to see them. Well, I guess it's time for me to enjoy my own peace and quiet, and try to get some sleep, and prepare for another adventurous day!

My first post

Well, I officially have a blog now. Not sure what I'm going to do with it, but I'll just go with it. And, I guess if you're checking this blog, you're taking the ride with me. I'm a crafter and wanted to be able to share my creations and ideas with friends across the country. And, I also wanted to be able to share thoughts and stories too. Who knows what will end up here, but I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
