Congrats on the revelation! I had the same internal struggle a few years back and actually took some time off from scrapbooking just so I could live my life again and be with my husband and two kids. There really is more to life than scrapbooking and as much as we all love this hobby we sometimes lose sight of the important things in life and most of all- ourselves! Enjoy life and your family. Scrapbooking isn't going anywhere. Hugs.

Hello again! Still MIA over here, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel! I hired my right hand person today to help alleviate the workload I have right now. Phew! Now I can stop doing 2 jobs half arsed and do my job exceedingly well. This seriously will mean more energy and more time with Photoshop. I am one happy person today. :D It's going to take some effort to get back into the blogging sphere; composing and reading them. Do not fret, Mango Islanders. I have a few things up my sleeve. ;-) This week... Continue reading

I am feeling good. Quite good actually because I was crafty this weekend! Now granted I didn't get to spend all weekend being crafty the mojo definitely got some time while still hanging out with the family. With Valentine's right around the corner I decided to get on the ball and make some love cards! Completed a Valentine's card that I will be duplicating so I can sell on my crafty store on Etsy along with a few other designs I did a few years back, but never got around to selling them. This picture was taken with my iPhone... Continue reading

Hey folks! It's me, the stranger. It's been awhile, yes I know. Life is still pretty crazy now with work consuming pretty much all my time. Like I said before that makes for no motivation in my craft room. But motivation struck me last night! I want to do a few Valentine's cards so I actually rummaged through some supplies and are now ready to work on them. Yay! I was planning on staying up late last night to finish a digi LO I started two weeks ago but by the time I got Joey to bed it was already... Continue reading

I thought that it was finally time to get a new banner designed now that the holidays are done and it's the 16th of January and all. The supplies are mainly from one of my fave designers, Lauren Reid. This kit is probably one of my all time faves that I consistently use all the time. Just checking in. I've been super busy with work- this last 2 weeks working really long hours- but since I've been doing a few design things I think i actually want to do an all nighter tonight to work on a LO. Designing is... Continue reading

It's 5 days after the New Years and I am proud to say that I am sticking to my resolutions. Are you? Remember to take it one day at a time. What have I been up to since New Years? One word: Work. Typically the beginning of the year is such a busy time for me so I will try my very best to keep in touch here and there and hopefully be able to keep up with the many blogs I follow on my Google reader, but bare with me. :) On another note, I have restarted Project 365...

I've decided on 2 changes so that I don't overwhelm myself: 1. Become more patient with life and those around me. 2. Become more organized with my daily life- make daily goals and stick to them. If I can work through these two throughout the year this will make for huge positive changes in my life.

Happy New Years! I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe New Years Eve. The hubby and I stayed home, as usual, and rang in the New Year with a movie. Actually, the hubby was fast asleep before midnight while I was reading up on some Twilight fan fiction, my newest addition. We don't dare go out to any overpriced parties or get caught in a checkpoint. Back in the younger years the hubby and I used to throw house parties for New Years, but now that we have Joey we're pretty much homebodies. If you made it to my... Continue reading

This is awesome! Love the color combo.
You did an awesome job on the sketch. That's the great thing about the sketches; the idea is to be unscripted.

It's been awhile since I've last posted and honestly, I've been avoiding my blog. Not really on purpose but the reality is my life is super busy right now with work being mad crazy. December is traditionally a slow month, work wise, but this year I am finding that anything and everything is falling on my lap while I am struggling to complete several major projects by year end. I'm overwhelmed at the moment, which means I have no motivation to scrap or blog. Just wanted to check in to let you know I'm still here. Hopefully by taking the... Continue reading

You've eating more food than you care to admit this Thanksgiving. You want to get to the gym but you feel like Homer Simpson and are struggling. I'm here to tell you that you can do it! Don't get Homer Simpson on me. If you need some incentive to go I'll tie the donut to the treadmill if you need me to. :D Continue reading

What a week! I feel like I was a SAHM this week because I got so much stuff done. Ok, having 4 days off helped immensely. With it being the holidays I really kicked it into gear and Yulized the house. The holidays are my favorite time of year and not because of the gift giving or receiving, but it puts me in a cheerful mood decorating the house and putting up the tree. BTW- We call it Yule in our house instead of Christmas. Yule is more traditional from the ancient days and actually pre-dates the Christian holiday of... Continue reading

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and you're able to roll out of bed. I know I'm going to be hitting the gym next week to burn off all this ham and bread I've been eating. Our Thanksgiving was good. We spent the morning with my dad and his wife and mother-in-law and then quickly came back to spend time with my mom. Luckily eating wasn't involved in that visit. To top off the night we went to my father-in-law's house to eat with him and my 2 brother-in-laws. I tried not to eat too much at each place but... Continue reading

Supplies: Heart of Thankfulness, Sugarplum Paperie, The Digi Chick Today is Thanksgiving Day and what's more appropriate than doing a post on what I am grateful and thankful for. I am thankful for: having the most wonderful husband. He's an awesome father and puts up with my wackiness. my kids, though they sometimes drive me crazy they are the joy of my life. my parents who raised me through some tough times and provided for me to the best of their abilities. having a job so that I can provide for my family. the friends I have who are the...

I've been MIA. Have you noticed? I didn't do last week's Weekly Rewind. Last week was such a blur and honestly I'm sure you didn't want ANOTHER post on my New Moon ramblings because that would pretty much be what Weekly Rewind was going to be about. Now that the New Moon high has somewhat dwindled down I can return to the normal programming schedule called life. What have I been up to you ask? Well, because I love lists here's a list of what has been preoccupying my time: Finalizing the last few bios for the DT bio page... Continue reading
