Here’s a little hint!

I have a beautiful layout to show you that my friend Benita sent me..thanks for sending it..


I know I am a complainer at times about unimportant things as well as others…I found this on the internet and wanted to share it with you…it really hit home with me.

I Am So Thankful
For the teenager who is not doing dishes but is watching TV,
Because that means he is at home and not on the streets.
For the taxes that I pay,
Because it means that I am employed.
For the mess to clean after a party,
Because it means that I have been surrounded by friends.
For the clothes that fit a little too snug,
Because it means I have enough to eat.
For my shadow that watches me work,
Because it means I am out in the sunshine.
For a lawn that needs mowing, windows that
need cleaning, and gutters that need fixing,
Because it means I have a home.
For all the complaining I hear about the government,
Because it means that we have freedom of speech.
For the parking spot I find at the far end
of the parking lot,
Because it means I am capable of walking
and that I have been blessed with transportation.
For my huge heating bill,
Because it means I am warm.
For the lady behind me in church that sings off key,
Because it means that I can hear.
For the pile of laundry and ironing,
Because it means I have clothes to wear.
For weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day,
Because it means I have been capable of working hard.
For the alarm that goes of in the early morning hours,
Because it means that I am alive and have a reason to get up.
And finally...
For too much e-mail,
Because it means I have friends who are thinking of me.

I haven’t made you a freebie in a long time so I made this for you today…it’s a Christmas Cluster with 5 Christmas Tags.

Christmas Cluster

I hope you enjoy these…you can get them HERE

I am off to pack, take a shower and get ready to go to Angie’s.. Mother, Cathy,  Chase and I are going..but Chase and I are staying until Sunday.  I hope all of you have a great Thanksgiving and if you don’t celebrate the holiday, I hope you have a happy Thursday.

Good Morning !!

Hope you all had a good weekend…I did…didn’t do much but I finally got to have Jaxon at my house…got to keep them both Friday afternoon..Jaxon is the best baby, he never cried or fussed a time..but Kaylen has a cold and a runny nose and she was not her usual happy self…now I’m thinking that part of it might have been because Jaxon was here, she is a bit jealous of me with him.I still had a great time keeping them..

I made some pictures to record the day…here’s one of Jaxon, just tell me this baby’s grown..LOL

Jason's 1st visit

 Kaylen  glamour shot

Kaylen came running to see her picture but I managed to snap this one before she got to the camera LOL I used a glamour shot filter on it as I was going to make SB pages of them but didn’t get it done.

I went to my mom’s Saturday night and had a wonderful supper cooked by my sister…she’s the best cook..she LOVES trying new recipes and I’ve ever seen anyone who loves cookbooks like she mom and I are lucky to reap the rewards of trying out all the new dishes!!

Sunday night I went was invited to Josh and Kendra’s for supper..I had a good time there.  I played with the kids and had a good visit.

Thanks everyone for the prayers for my mother…her Doctor’s report was much better than we had thought, she is not in kidney failure..there was an explanation of her blood work but heaven only knows I can’t begin to tell you what it was, I’m not good at remembering medical terminology LOL

I have a new CT member, her nick is MumaSue..I have known her for a long time thru SBM and had asked her to be on the team but she had other obligations at that time, Sue is married and has 1 beautiful little girl, (I know you will see her a lot)..and lives in Illinois….like the rest of the team, she is an awesome scrapper as you will see in a bit.

Just to remind you,

A BIG THANK YOU to my CT for all these BEAUTIFUL pages, ya’ll are the best.

I know this is a big week for those in the USA…I am going to Angie’s for Thanksgiving and Chase and I are staying with them until Sunday…I’m looking forward to it so much, and will be there to watch the BIG GAME..The annual Iron Bowl Game between Auburn and be honest I think we are going to get a licking…but you never know when those two teams play…strange things have happened thru the years! Chase, Dave and Zane are for Alabama, as is Kendra and Jaxon..Me,Josh Kaylen Angie and Gage are for Auburn. I would say “Our House Divided” works out even on both sides LOL

Thanks for stopping by today, leave some love if you enjoyed the blog…and give my CT Members some love also.

Good Friday Morning one and all..have you got a big one planned?

The new Twilight Move started this morning at 12:00 am to sold out theaters and people standing in LONG LONG lines to see the movie..Andrea, (DSO Designer) got her tickets over a month ago and waited in line for 6 hrs in order to get a good seat…WOW those books must be something else, I am going to read them when I go to my daughters..

Friends, please say a prayer for my mom…she is not doing well, she had lab work done and it showed kidney failure in her blood work..she goes to her regular doctor this afternoon and I’m hoping he puts her in the hospital to find out what is going on..she stays in bed most of the time now.

Also say a prayer for my GS Josh, he got layed off on Wednesday and so needs to find a job Now..they just got moved into their house and things were starting to look up for them..and for my GS Chase he has been out of work for a long time and is also trying to find a job.  I know there are thousands out there in the same situation we need to say a prayer for…and we should all be Thankful for what we have, we are blessed.

Today I want to show you my new word art in the store now..


It's A Boy was inspired by my new GGS. I wanted word art to express my feelings for him in my own pages. I'm sharing these with you..there are 20 black expression and 5 done in white shadowed vellum. There are lullabies, love poems, phrases that come from the heart..and show your love for the baby boy in your life. These can be re-colored and resized and are done in 300 dpi. As always, each done in individual ping format. Can be used for cards and other craft projects. IT'S A BOY is a must have for your word art collection. you can find it HERE

Here’s a page I made with it..

Dear Baby Boy2

I used a kit by Chaos Lounge called Forever Young, paper is one of KimB’s texture overlays.

I am feeling much better today..the Dr.gave me 2 shots and 2 prescriptions and told me if I wasn’t better by the following Monday I was going to the I didn’t get to close to the computer and just layed on the couch and watched TV..I have a kitchen full of dirty dishes, a laundry basket running over and dust bunnies everywhere..the dishes are my project for today, and some laundry if I want clean clothes and towels to take a shower LOL..

Did any of you see the remake of The Secret Garden?  I haven’t seen it either but I was on a blog several weeks ago and they were playing the music from it..I fell in love with it and had to get it…I listen to it all the time when I am working at the computer..some of you might like can sample it at
