Stop and smell the roses


I bought these two stamps for less than a $1 each. Can you believe it? The chick and the flowers are from the For Peep's Sake Collection by Imaginisce. I had no idea what I would make with them, but once I stamped the chick, I knew I had to design something. Alas, we have a stop and smell the roses card. Do you like it? Let me know what you think.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I can not believe it has been well over a month since my last Blog entry. I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and I hope that you are abundantly blessed in 2009. This holiday season was not as exciting as my previous holidays. Don't know why, but I was uninspired. Just plain ole uninspired. That's it. No other excuse! Then at the last minute, I found some inspiration. Thank goodness gifts were purchased right after Thanksgiving.

Christmas day was wonderful. It started out with me making breakfast for the family and baking cakes for my brothers and my mom. Chris got an IPhone and Bri received several big ticket items, one of which was diamond ring (in lieu of a class ring). The day was spent at my mom's house with my brothers, their significant others, and my niece and nephews. The children were a joy to watch, but did I have a serious headache by the time the night was over. Jaden, Amaya, and Nolan are in the 18-22 month range, and DJ is 5 months old. I didn't realize what busy bodies they are. Here are a couple pics of the babies. The first pic is of Nolan (18 mos.), Amaya (19 mos.), Jaden(22 mos.), and my daughter Brianna (17 yrs). She is having a hard time keeping them together for this picture. Amaya and her baby brother DJ (5 mos) are in the second picture. They are so adorable!



I have been home from work since December 23rd and I am seriously dreading the return tomorrow. I told myself that while I was home, I would do x, y, and z. None of which was done. Not even stamping -- shame on me! I would come into my Webb and pull out some cardstock and DSP, and just sit there looking at it. Don't know what is wrong, but I can't seem to find inspiration anywhere. Today, I was on a quest to find some inspiration, but instead, I uploaded music and synched to my IPod and phone. So much for finding inspiration. Hope to find it soon!
