Two totally different things! LOL!

Both explaining my feelings of  last week or two.

Thanks for the comments and prayers for Noah’s surgery. Also want to tell you Alexa enjoyed the comments about her card for her friend.

STILL no video. I have been to busy with the kids home from school. Trying to get in some quality time doing projects and stuff while they are home. I want to keep them happy so I don’t go INSANE! LOL!

I really hope to do one today. I guess I’m not even sure what to show you this week. My mojo is FLAT! All the cleaning sucked the life out of me maybe 😀

Anyway-feeling like that-I decided to play with some digital images from SquiggleFly. I’m actually their Featured Artist this month! Sadly I hadn’t had more time to play :C February seems to always be a busy month for me.

They do have a FREE download for you to try so you get an idea HOW digi images work. Check it out if you have time.

My dear friend Holly‘s daughter designs all the images 😀 She totally ROCKS!! She has a video on her blog sharing how the downloads work! Check it out–> HERE!

This is SOOOO me

(minus the apron, and me COOKING! LOL! Pretend I’m cleaning or something else! LOL!)

Re-edited photo after posting! Sorry! It was WAY too big


I used my Copis to color her. I don’t know WHY, but I print my digital images on MATTE Photo paper! It takes my Copic ink like a dream when I color! Granted, not as THICK as PTI cardstock, but I adore the look I get for digi images. So white and bright.

I also used my NEW! SU! paper, felt flowers and brads. Im in LOVE!! I added some adhesive rhinestones to the flower centers. I love this layout.

My sentiment isHandwritten Notes by PTI

I think as a woman so many of us can relate to this woman. We have SO many hats to wear. When we need something done, we do it ourselves. When everyone is sick or needs something we are there. When we get sick we STILL have to do everything for everyone. We don’t ge to “punch out” of our job at 5pm, take a lunch break, get weekends off, and FORGET the vacation. Won’t happen!

Thats why its important we TRY our very best to make a LITTLE guilt free time for us! No matter what your fancy! For me- stamping and exercising, maybe your guilty pleasure is reading a chapter in a book (locked in the bathroom so no one bothers you! LOL!) maybe taking a bath or watching your favorite show.

Whatever it is, try to take a few moments for you-without feeling bad. I have several friends-all new moms going through MAJOR guilt because they are burnt out and do want time for them. They haven’t had 5 minutes to shower, let alone anything else. Having the “men” take the kids so they can have a few moments of “me” time, and they feel bad about it.

Why are we programmed this way? If we don’t de-stress we will break down. We can’t get broken! The world will fall off its axis! LOL!

One of my friends husband goes out 2 nights a week! She doesn’t get 5 minutes of time for her. She wants to get back in shape or do “Something” but when she hears the baby cry she stops. tends to her, and doesn’t finish what she started. She says she feels bad the baby needs HER. Well yes the baby does need her, but daddy can deal for a few moments.

We have to stop the guilt!

You will actually feel a little better if you get a “mini break” Granted thinking this will happen daily isn’t realistic, but its not impossible.

So try to make time to do something for YOU. Even if its go for a haircut-without kids in tow.

OK now onto happiness!

Happiness Is


OK see what I mean?! This one is PERFECT size. Good grief. I’m so technically challenged its ridiculous.

I used the UBER cute Flower Mice<—- image for this one. (OMGosh! Upon linking this I saw –>THIS ONE!!! I NEED that one ASAP!) I think they are beyond cute.

So NOT my usual colors. When do you see  ME use pumpkin, blue and avocado together?! NEVER! But I saw a cute TV ad (yes inspiration is truly everywhere!) using these colors and said “Self, you need to try that!”. So I did.

I was quite happy with it.

The sentiment is from JustRite Stampers-$1 section Friends Pre-Inked set! Where can you get SO many sentiments (8 in each) for a BUCK?! I bought all of them! LOL!

Anyway, used MORE SU! Stuff since I just got in a order. I hadn’t ordered anything from them in YEARS!!! But there were lots of paper/accessories I fell in LOVE with. They also had a GORGEOUS hostess set God’s Beauty (I think its called) that was a must have, so I got that too. OH and the Butterfly Die! HAD to get that as well. You know me and my butterflies 😀

OK so thats it. If Im going to get a video done (crossing fingers AGAIN) I better get going.

Again-keep me posted on what you want to see from me 😀 I keep a list for future reference 😀

Thanks for taking time out of YOUR busy day to visit me here. I feel so special knowing you do. I know how busy life is, as I barely get “online” time, I’m so busy doing everything else.
