There is a light at the end of my tunnel!

and hopefully it is not an oncoming train LOL I had my first appointment today for my ADHD and whatever lunacies they find swimming around in my brain ;) FINALLY. I feel some sort of relief to at least know I am on my way to getting back to being me.

Anyway onto other things. I have some new items in my boutique:

OK gotta go for now ;) Have a great afternoon!

Oh my LOL

I know why it doesn't seem that long since I posted...... I started 3 different posts and never got to finish any of them lol. I have been so busy getting my products together and doing everything else that I just can't seem to get organized. Here is a brief list of things happening.

1. My CT Call fell to the wayside so I am re-running the ad. If you would like to be on my CT let me know ;)

2. I am STILL removing my old products from the store BUT should be done within the next day so you only have a few more hours to grab my old designs at ridiculous prices PLUS 50% off of that!!I have several new kits in my boutique and more are on their way! Here is a peek at some of my newest:

3. My good friend Melody - AKA Pebbles - has joined my CT Team! She has already posted her announcement and has a Freebie QP made from my "Boys will be Boys" kit to give you all on her blog! She also made a layout using the QP:

Isn't it awesome!? Find it HERE

OK Gotta run for now but I will be back with some more news soon! Don't forget to leave Melody some LOVE when you visit her blog!

Just a quick hello

then I will have to be off. I hope you are all enjoying our Blog train at Divine Digital and that you had a wonderful time helping us celebrate our 3rd Birthday! Many of our links for the blog train will stay up for a week but some may not be so I hope you managed to get them all.

Yesterday I found out that the Library would be closed today and tomorrow so I had to make a quick change to get a little internet service today. I left Alex at home sleeping - poor man will be working until midnight tonight so I didn't want to make him get up early. Also he had stayed up last night until 2 in the morning watching Charles play Silent Hill 4 lol. I got Charles up this morning and asked if he wanted to come with me this morning. So we ran a couple of errands and grabbed a card and gift for Alex for Easter and now are sitting at Subway. I hate subway but this tuna sandwich is ok. What can I say? I am from NY and worked in a deli through High School - I know what cold cuts are supposed to taste like and Subway is just not it. I mean heck this tuna sandwich they mae me? They asked if I wanted the bread toasted so I said yes - they put the tuna on and THEN toasted it!! Sigh, just not what I am used to. It's Good Friday so no meat today. Tonight I will be making my Pasta for dinner. Pasta, mozzarella, fresh basil and tomatoes. Yummy. I was able to get a leg of Lamb for Easter Dinner YAY! I haven't had Lamb in I don't know how long. That really stinks because I usually use it to make my sauce as well. Well Baby steps I guess lol.

OK onto business - have you seen my new designs? I will have more in the boutique next week too!

And don't forget:

OK Well I need to go for now I hope all of you have a wonderful Easter and weekend!

So a little rant..................

Johnathan did a Fundraiser at school. I saw a few things I liked and this is the first time he wanted to do one in a while so I say what the heck. I ordered 5 items. I am not - or at least had THOUGHT I was not - ignorant as to the usual quality of Fundraiser items. Sometimes you get lucky and the items you are purchasing are well known brands and you know exactly what you are getting - not this time.

I had gotten a Strawberry plant several years ago complete with the wonderful little pot for about $8 I loved the little pot but alas it was one of the things we ended up leaving behind in Florida from the move. So on his fundraiser sheet there were two plant starter kits, one for cherry tomatoes and one for strawberries ;) Oooohhhh ahhhhhh ok cool $11 but hey ya know it's a fundraiser. Sigh, well we got the items yesterday - the pot is small. I mean really small as in you could make a "C" with your pointer finger and thumb and it fits right in there. OK and to boot it came with some dirt tablet smaller than the Clorox toilet drop ins - maybe an inch and a half wide. No real directions either, it came in a generic box with generic directions and said nothing as to whether or not the mesh around the tablet should be removed or not and that it had to be soaked. Sorry if I sound stupid but I am old school, you take the dirt and your seeds and boom you're ready to rock and roll.

Well so I made the best of an iffy situation and planted the seeds. We will see what happens.

But here as you can see is our Cilantro - it's doing wonderfully!

As are our Romaine lettuce and our two tomato plants ;)

In the house our little seedlings are doing well too. This first one is actually a clove of garlic which started sprouting all on it's own so we decided to plant it in a little pot I had painted last year and see what happens.

Lastly our Tulips are growing again this year which I was amazed by since they had gotten left outside during all of the freeze and snowstorms and what not:

And our Iris are now starting to bloom as well. They are all around the side of our house and a few line the garden we are making out front.

Well that is all of our garden photos for now. I will be back later with some scrapping news ;)

Designer Resource List

I have decided to put my resource list here on my blog and only include a link to it in my designs. The reason for this decision is that many times resource creators will change their TOU and it can be difficult to keep up with all of the changes. This way as I acquire a new resource I can post it here (hopefully immediately) and not have to worry about updating all of my designs individually. I hope this is acceptable to everyone involved. This list will be updated regularly.

The following people/companies may or may not have been used as a resource in making my designs. They are mentioned here in alphabetical order:
