I made this page for Azland's first day of his new school. He really loves it there. He was super excited to get back into his routine. AND Boy did he do just that.

This page is made with DCWV glitter stack, the smaller papers are from DCWV "The Grade School" stack, and "thicker" letters.

I am realizing that it is hard to have a full time job, be a single mom, and scrap all the time. least I got this one done right!

The layout includes "Imaginisce" paper, "Bobunny" stickers, and "Stampin Up, Animal Stories" stamps. I also used a "Martha Steward" branch punch and added some detail under the animals.

Trust me Yall...He really is an animal! ;)

I made this page from "October Afternoon" paper. I used their cut outs, "Martha Steward" butterfly punch, in the bottom right hand corner are rubber bands, in the top left is a sizzix die, and I used felt letters. I have not put pictures on it yet but I will in time. This page is about our travel from England to the US. I really like how this one came out.

I started my new job today. Super excited and so ready for a new start. Everything is going great and I have to say I have 2 very wonderful bosses. They are both relaxed, down to earth and beilive in me....couldn't ask for anyone better! Everything seems to FINALLY be failing into place. I hope to still be able to work on some craft stuff as much as I can but we will see exactly how much. ;)

Now Yall know I had to scrap that shit! LOL I put a note card over the private things but you get the point of what I am trying to say.

This is a card I made for a special friend. I really love craft paper and these craft cards I found are great. I love the white against the brown on the papers. The white really seems to POP.

I will be the only cook....head cook of "Gulf Shores Adult Daycare". (it is a place for elderly to stay the day and we will be sending meals to the homes of senior citizens) I will be making more money than I have ever made...EVER!!! This is an amazing opportunity for me and a great chance to make it even higher. I am SUPER scared, nervous, happy, eager....and just don't want to mess up. Fingers crossed everyone that Azland and I will be sitting pretty for a long time.

I wanted to give everyone a little in site on the conversations I have with my son, Azland. Some times I just give up. However, he is doing great with talking. Now he is using a few really good FULL sentences. Yes, he still babbles, screeches, and makes high pitch noises ALLLLLL the time but this past year he has gone far....and is doing GREAT.

Azland - "Mommy Mommy Mommy"
Mom - "Yes, Azland"
Azland - "I don't know!"
(This is all day long)

A - "Mommy Mommy Mommy"
M - "Yes, Azland"
A - "Is that you!"
( I can be right beside him or in the same room)

A - "Mommy are you hungry?"
M - "No Azland are you?"
A - "Yeah hungry"
M - "OK What do you want yo eat?"
A - "I don't know!"
(Yes, he does know what he wants it just take a little while to come out)

A - "Mommy do you need diaper change?"
M - "No Azland do you?"
A - "Yeah diaper change!"
(This is not all the time only oncce in a while)

Azland did not even start calling me anything till last year at the age of 3. He also did not start to tell me or his care givers he needed a diaper change till 3.....and sometimes he still does not care either way. BUT over all he is doing great and growing super fast.

Well my stuff FINALLY is unpacked...well most of it....and ready to go! It is super nice to not sit in a empty house anymore. Here are some pictures of it all.

NOW..............the question is "WHAT DO I MAKE FIRST!!!"

Thursday, January 6, 2011

Well today is the day I get my house hold stuff. I feeling like I am going to peepee my pants waiting for it all. I just can not wait to scrapbook again. And not to mention this will close the deal on my divorce. Got my papers and now all our stuff. My hands are washed....that feels good to say.

Yesterday, my BFF in England, Jennifer, had her baby boy, Anthony Michael McClure, after 43 hours of labor at 12:15AM. Everyone is super proud of her and her hubby for not passing out. LOL I love you Mike and Jen...and now Anthony!

Stay tuned for pics of all the boxes.

Well I finally got the email about my house hold stuff and it is here! It will be delivered to my house on Thursday. HOLLY CRAP I am excited. I will finally be able to start crafting and making videos AGAIN! Man, this is great news.

Also, my very best friend in England, Jennifer, just went to the hospital early have her baby boy. I just hope her hubby does not pass out on her. (sorry Mike) Stay strong Jen and I am thinking about you 3.

When there are good things there are bad as well. OR At least that is the way my life has been lately. I am still fighting to get unemployment since October now and NOTHING yet. AND The car I was using has broken down. GGGGRRRRRRRR

BUT I am still looking at the positive side of things even if I have to make one up. LOL I mean after all who can be upset when there is a baby coming into this world to great people. AND Both parents are going to ROCK!!!!
Love you Mike and Jen and CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I spoke with my ex-hubby and he said my date for getting my house hold stuff was the 27th of December. HOLLY CRAP!!!!!!!!!!! I am super excited and very hopeful I will get my stuff this week. On one hand it will be sad but on the other it will be very exciting and just like Christmas. I can not wait to get crafting and continue making videos again. Man, I really miss all my stuff. Keep your fingers crossed for me yall.

Well it is now here, 2011. Happy New Year Yall! So far I am starting this new year with a positive attitude and a killer headache. (Good times) I plan on moving forward with out 2010 and nothing but goodness this year. (perhaps even with chocolate sprinkles) I plan on continuing my work out and eating healthy. (even though I eat healthy now) In honor of this new year I though I would make 11 new amazing things happen in my life this year. No matter how big or small. After all the shit that happened to me this year....I deserve it!
