My breath fogged up the glass, and so I drew a new face and laughed

Man life keeps trying to get me down with little things here and there but I aint gonna let it lol! Here is an example...Last night I put my hubby's unemployment form in the mail slot to go out today and my work form for his aunt also. Well about 4 am my husband hears a car pull up. He looks out the window and sees someone run from our porch to the car that is parked outside. He goes to the front door and his aunt says she heard someone messing with the mail slot. Of course they are long gone by now and he realizes just what they have stole (the forms). So now we are delayed in our checks but like I said I refuse to let this bring me down.

On to more important things... Got my pmp projects completed and uploaded. My cousin and I went to crop with the girls Friday. Didn't get a lick of scrappin done but cousin did teach me how to crotchet. Pretty cool.

Here are the things I made for the store.

The new sassafras lass...

Note cards with magnets and pins.


Magnets on the fridge.

A page from american crafts rubon's, paper, and brads.My little hippie boy before we cut his hair short.

Last page with my daughter Aria and myself. Used the maya road chipboard and of course new sass. Love that stuff.

I'm making a spring banner for my front door. Guess what I am using? Yep new sass lol! Did I tell you I am in love with that stuff. It is almost done and I have a summer one started as well! Looks like I am on a roll.

My daughter Aria's birthday was the 26Th and we had family and friends over for a BBQ on Saturday. Good times. She looked extra sweet in her little orange dress and wings.

I have been working hard out in the yard. Got my veggie garden all planted up. We have some pumpkins and tomatoes, squash, peppers, green beans, cucumbers and a few melons thrown in for good measure lol!

I planted some rosemary and lavender along the side of the house and some daises at the end of the lawn. My hostas, ferns, and bleeding hearts are all coming up. I think it is so exciting when you plant something from seed or bulb and it actually grows lol! Sometimes I am amazed it actually lived.

The new Mojo girls have been announced today! I am so excited to welcome these girls to the team. Make sure to check it out.

Happy Spring!

Busy busy busy! Unfortunately not much of it was scrapping or anything "creative". Never the less it was very very fun. My birthday was March 16Th and the sat before my hubs threw together a little bbq. We had my mom and sister and grandmother over along with his aunt and the the adopted daughter (ravens friend). I made ribs and hubby grilled some carnitas and hot dogs. My mommy made me her delish potato salad and sugar free carrot cake. YUMMY!

Hubby bought me the most beautiful flowers and some garden stuffs. Oh and we went on a little shopping spree. LOL! I bought some plants for the outside and lights, window boxes, a fire pit, dirt and clothes lol! Yeah he spoiled me.

I painted my door and planted my plants and am slowly making my house look better after years of neglect. When you have 4 kids and are a big girl you just don't want to do anything other then take care of them and that's it. My house was neglected. But no more! Since I have lost 124 pounds I surprisingly (sarcasm) have found the energy to do the things that i love...Gardening being one them.

My cousin surprised me with a cute little jar filled with the most scrumptious fabric and a awesome punch. LOVE IT!

I did find some time to make some scrappyness. But I am on the laptop right now and the pics are on the other computer lol! We are getting ready to watch tv sooo they will have to wait. I really love the next mojo challenge. I cant wait to post that one. Oh and I managed to pick some new mojo girls and send out emails! I m getting good at multi tasking again lol! Let's pray I can keep it up.

I actually made a to do list and crossed things off! WTF?? I never do that! I would write them and then lose the paper or not really ever have much to put on it. Yes life is beginning to look up lol!

Ok as I just typed that last line I realized I hadn't told you all that I got in a car accident on St Pattys day. I and hubs are fine. A teen tried to come into my lane and well hit me. He only had a permit and no adult in the car! AGH! Thank god the mother said she will pay the damages! She gave us 1000 already and owes 800 more which she will pay on the 1st. Whew! At least it wasn't worse! I feel really bad for the mother I know how mad she must be lol!

Watched a few movies...
Night in Roadanthe- good movie
Yes man- funny
Ps I love you- freakin sad!!! Loved it.
Bled-Uhhhh dumb!
Cadillac Records-Wicked great!

Oh and hubby took me to see last house on the left. I LOVED IT! Awesome awesome movie. If you don't like thrillers you wont like this movie.

Ok so I believe that's it for now. Hope you are having a wonderful week!

I am not gonna mention that it has been a month since I last blogged...Nope not gonna do it. I am just going to move on and share away. LOL!

So I have been busy it seems. Not really doing much but just seems like I have ha! I went to PMP 3 times last month. Once for Nikki's rockin class. Love that lady. I will show the pages soon.

Took my daughter last Friday and we cropped together. She had a good time and loved to hear Suzy's snort. We both had a good giggle. Got to talk with the lovely Daniela. Great to catch up.

Fun fun come play along. The girls did an amazing job! Oh and we are still looking for a few Mojo girls to add to the team.

Hubby graduated from school with honors! YAY hubby! I knew he would. Now hopefully he finds a good job. Keep us in your prayers and thoughts.

Hmmm I have some other things in the works but wont share them yet. I hope you all had a wonderful Feb and that March is starting off on the right foot! *eeek only 11 more days till my Birthday!*
