Well, here I am and it's only been 9 months since I've been on here. Good grief!! Out with the old and in with the new. I'm starting the Project Life thing this year. I bought the entire kit last year..turquoise edition! But never did it. In fact, I just opened the box. CRAZY! But, this year is going to be different. And! I'm going to blog my progress.

2012 is a big year for me. I will turn the big 4-0 this year! So, I've got some things on my "before I'm 40" bucket list. We'll see if they happen! One of those is to blog about my crafts. I LOvE to craft! Recently, I've gotten more into mixed media art, etc. which has been really fun! So, I hope to document that I here as well. I really want this to be my "display wall" it will be able to share it with others along the way as well.

So, I'm off to my craft room while the boys are out for a bit and will be back SOON with my PL updates! Is anyone doing PL too? Share with me!

Class today...

Today I'm teaching a class at SHEA.  It's ONLY $8 and we'll take a white 12x12 piece of cardstock and do this...  I may add a few embellishments to mine, but loved creating my own background paper.  I used Tattered Angels glimmer mist: Jingle Bells, Trunk Bay, Marmalade, Strawberry Shortcake Chalkboard and Mint Chocolate Chip Chalkboard.  Some TA masks.  It was fun!!!  I'll post the pics of my class for April soon.  A 12x12 layout + 2 cards.  Super fun!

Back at it...

Welcome back to the blog world!!!  I look at blogs almost every day, but yet I never update my own.  Why is that?  Well, I'm hopefully going to change that.  It's time to post more.

There are only a few days left for the February special with Thirty-One....for EVERY $31, get ANY item for 31% off.  It's an AWESOME special!  If you're interested, check out my website. March has a great special too: for every $31 spent, purchase a purse 50% off.  It's incredible!  Want to host a party: catalog, home or's up to you.  $200 is all you need for a "party."

So, I've been creating some lately.  Finally...  It's been so long since I've scrapped or crafted.  And, I just taught a class.  I'm teaching again at Scrappin' Happily Ever After.  It's a cool store located in Summerville, SC.  Ivy has it going on with the latest and greatest in scrapbook supplies.  I'll be teaching again in March.  I will post my layouts and cards when I complete them.  It's gonna be cool!!!  This past Saturday I went to a crop there and Ivy had a recipe challenge.  I'm not normally a challenge or an 8.5 x 11 layout type of person, but I challenged myself to complete this.  This is my layout...

Super fun, the crop was.  But, the not so good part, I came home not feeling well: sore throat.  Woke up Sunday with the flu.  So, it's been a long week.  The flu really wipes you out!!!  My husband has really stepped up, taking the kids to and from school, practices, etc. I'm just ready to get my energy back and feel better.  I don't wish this on anyone, and I even got a flu shot.  UUGH!!!

Well, good grief, it's been a LONG a** time since I've been on here.  So much going on, summer is over, school starts tomorrow, my business is taking off and it's just been busy.  Or has it?  I always say I'm so busy, but I look back and what have I really been doing?  This summer has been a roller coaster for me: of both emotions and things going on.  July FLEW by...I traveled through 9 different states in less than a week.  It was busy, but it was fun.  I went to National Conference for Thirty-One Gifts and met some new people, got to know my team better, got to see new products, it was a GREAT trip and I came back EXTREMELY pumped up to sell some Thirty-One, let me tell you.  I was home for 2 days before the boys and I and my mom hopped in the car again to road trip it to Illinois to see friends and family.   It was a great trip, but I was ready to get home and have the boys have some daddy time. 

This past weekend my mom and I along with 2 of my best girlfriends headed to Charlotte, NC for the CKC Scrapbook Convention.  It was a MUCH needed break!  I had a BLAST, spent too much money and laughed SO HARD, I cried more than once.  It was AWESOME!!!

I've been slowly creating and trying to get things worked on, so I hope to be blogging and sharing a LOT more!  Hope to see you here again VERY SOON!!  What's your summer been like?

Where have I been???

Sometimes I'm not sure where I've been.  It's been a LONG time since I've updated this thing.  One of my resolutions was to update this on a regular basis, like once a week, but that hasn't happened, so hmmmm.... what to do?? 

Well, I've started my own business (so to speak).  I have become a consultant for Thirty-One Gifts.  It's a wonderful company!  They have purses, totes, etc. and the age range for the consumer is from baby to adult.  It's great!  What I love is you don't have to have a party to enjoy they're products, you can order through my website anytime.  And, if you want to have a party, you surely home, through the catalog or virtually through the internet!!!  Check it out!!

I've been to the beach with my girlfriends to scrapbook over Valentine's Day weekend.  And, it SNOWED!!!  Yes, we got anywhere from 1"-5" in the Lowcountry, depending on where you were.  It even snowed at the beach.  There was snow on top of the sand.  It was beautiful!  But, it only lasted a few hours and then it was gone.  The boys enjoyed it with daddy!  They built a great snowman...
