I have been we go

Sorry I have been away so long got really busy...

1)If you could have 100.00 pounds worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments,which would you choose?I would choose PAPER. In fact I already have hehh hhhe.

2)If you had to choose between using only stamps or rub ons which would you choose? I would use stamps. It's more versatile

3) If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts, but could only do one for a year which would you do?I would do cards, it's like mini scrapbooking with out the pictures of course

4) Would you rather own a scrap booking store or have your own scrapping room at ...i can do my projects there...

5) And the last but not least, what is your current cardmaking or scrapping style?I am trying to do more water coloring...tried gamsol... makes me wheeze.... ( I have really bad Asthma)and try using a new variety of colors.

If can, can... if no can, no can..heehee get it?

Here it is.... I altered my first can...with the help of Jen Young.... yup she gave me the can.... and she even went as far as giving me the lid on the can too.... she could have conveniently use the pull tab on the can... but no...she got out her handy dandy Pampered Chef can opener and cranked away.... viola! she gave me the can... and stuck some pretty paper, by I don't know who and some ribbon and here we are......all cute and pretty....a big Mahalo, for Jen and her soup can... she left the pull tab ring so that i could add ribbon too it... all I did was cover the can.... still have to add stuff, but I thought it was purddy as is..
Here is the whole enchilada!... Thanks to Jen for the can and the " can do attitude" ... cause now I know I can!

Twin Happiness.....

A lot of people ask me "How do you do it?" Referring to my 2 year old Boy/Girl twins. So I decided to post some of twin happenings

1.When do you find time? When they are asleep...When my Mom and Dad comes to help me....

2.What do you do when they go in two different directions? Split my self in two.....nah.... I usually run after one, grab em' and run after another one.. the easiest way.... keep them together.

3.Who do you carry when two of them wants to be picked up and snuggled at the same time? You carry both because although you will break your back, that is nothing compared to breaking your heart.

4. Do you have to buy two of the same thing? No, you can buy one or a different one, and encounter endless, fighting, whining, crying and screaming. ( I suggest you get air conditioning , so you can close your windows, so no one will call the cops or CPS)

5. Do you get enough rest? Do you thing I look this tired on purpose? Normally I look like Cindy Crawford. But then again who does?

6. Don't they get into everything? Yes they do... so it is important to anticipate the worst. Did I get upset when they glued my card stock together...naw.... not those two angels.

and the number one question that I get all the time...... Are they identical and are they natural? I tell them identical ,,you know, means same-same. One has boy parts and the other one has girl parts. to be identical they must be the same.... (stop laughing, an educated person has asked me this). And what the heck is an unnatural twin anyway...

But all in all I am very lucky to say the least, they are very good, and so much fun. I could never ask for better kids... It's a lot of work.... but double the rewards... Which, brings me to this card. The reason why I can handle....because my girlfriend has triplets... all girls... okay if she can handle three... two should be a piece of cake. So I decided to send her this card just because... Okay thank you for reading my long Corny story...Have a good one and keep stamping...

Just Bee-cuze I like you!

I love this stamp set, the impression of the bee is great.... this card is so simple but yet so cute. I used TAC stamps ( of course) paper from Sam's
Club ( thanks, Mo) and black gel ink pen from sakura. Stamp ink by none other than TAC.
I made this card today bee-cuze, it reminds me never to take things for granted. I remember this day 6 years ago. My husband woke me and turned on the news and I sat up in bed in total shock. Many of my friends and and spouses of friends left to Iraq. Some came back and some are still there. I keep them in my prayers and hope that they will come back home safely. I am grateful for the sacrifices they made and are making for my freedom...To say " thank you" just seems so inadequate.

My scrap buddy and one of my best friends Mo, had her cds is a plain envelope...and being the bling person that I am I decided to alter it. I actually made my own CD holder with TAC Cardstock, PP by basic grey, flower by prima,rick track by walmart, seed beads from Ben Franklin, words by computer and cutesy stamps by none other than The Angel Company then I added some velcro on the back for closure. Hopefully she likes it..... I did it without asking her...oooops...well that's all for now...

Hello everyone out there in blogland...I set up this blog to share our lives with our family and friends. This way we can all keep up with each other and I hope to post often, even though my schedule is hectic.... I find if anything that is important enough, it is worth time being spent on...I find peace and relaxation when I am being creative...I recently just "got my Wings" are right I just became a demonstrator for "The Angel Company" check out my website...which is still under construction. I love their products, they still use "Real Rubber"on their stamps but, without all the extra space that conventional stamps takes up...This way my customers and I won't end up with a space problem on where to store these. If you have any questions...please email me at I welcome your comments and ideas too.

Toodle Loo,
