I've been busy these last few days since my hubby is up at deer camp. Between hanging with my kids, laundry, dishes, school stuff, laundry, running, visiting with my sister-in-law who's staying with me from Cinci, and laundry it's been a fun but busy week! I haven't had time to work on any pages, however, I have been designing some more digital Christmas elements and papers. I've had so many wonderful comments about my Christmas Trees, that I thought I would try some more things! Drop me a comment and let me know what you think!

Friday the 13th

I've been absolutely horrible about bloggin and scrapping this weekend! I apologize! :0) Although I still do not have a new layout to show you (LOL!), I do have a crazy story. As you well know Friday was Friday the 13th. I didn't really think about this being the date until yesterday, but on Friday evening I was about a 1/4 of a mile from my house (we live in the country), heading into town to play in my weekly walleyball league. All of a sudden a deer jumps out in front of me and even though I slammed on the brakes, I hit it with the front passenger side of my car! I was totally fine, just a little scared, but my hood is bent up, the bumper is all cracked up and my radiator is leaking. This is the first time in my life I have ever hit anything (minus the raccoon who forgot to look both way before crossing the street) or have gotten in an accident so I guess my record is officially broken. My mom pointed out that Friday was Friday the 13th! And even though I'm not the least bit superstitious, I thought it was funny and had to share! Oh well! Life goes on!

Here is a layout I did a while ago, but I absolutely love it and with ski season just around the corner for us, I thought I would post it! Hope you like it!

Not Enough Time in the Day

I was going to finish my layout and planned on posting it this evening. Well obviously that didn't happen! LOL! However, I was able to fit in several other things that I wanted to do today!

This morning I attended the Coffee Pauses for Causes which is a local event in my town that happens every Tuesday morning and in which I'm on the Stirring Committee (Stirring is intentional!). It's a event which highlights a different local charity every week in which you can come and find out more about their cause and how to help. We also have coffee donated by different vendors every week and a Domestic Tip provided by community members highlighting special skills, recipes or crafts. Coffee is by donation and all proceeds go towards the charity of the week and an another local organization called Guardian Gals. Even though this was only the second week for Coffee Pauses the turnout has been wonderful! I'm excited to see what the future holds for this event!

I was also able to get to the gym. About 2 weeks ago I joined again after 2 years of being away and it's wonderful to be back! I'm a runner so I'm use to putting in long miles, however, it's nice to do some weightlifting and build the strength up in my old creaky knees.

I've also been working on some digital Christmas Elements to go along with my Christmas Trees. I don't know if it's anything that will interest people, but my mom likes them. And in the end that's all that really matters, right? - if mom likes them. :0) As soon as I finish my element kit I will post them. I haven't figured out how to put them up on my blog so you'll able to download them. I'll keep working on that.

Hope everyone had a great day today and was able to enjoy some nice weather.

New layout using my new Christmas Trees

I couldn't wait to try a layout using my new Christmas Trees that I designed! Just thought I'd share!

A couple of new layouts!

Here's some new layouts that I designed using Gina Marie Huff's fantasic NEW Sweet and Simple Page Kit "My Best Friend and My Best Friend Girly Add -On". You can pick up these fab kits at www.weedsandwildflowersdesign.com .

Christmas Trees

I'm so not good at this blog thing. *sigh* I like the whole idea of it, but when it comes down to it, months go by and I realize that I haven't written in a while! :0) Oh well! Let's try this again! Things have been crazy this last month. My hubby was deployed to Egypt - this time for only 3 weeks, which was LOTS better than a year like the last time. He just got back 4 days ago and it's been SO nice to have him back! I also ran my 2nd Half Marathon! It was fantastic and I beat my last time by a minute! What a great time! My little ones are both going to school now. My oldest is in 1st grade and my little one is in preschool. They both love school and their teachers. :0)

I have been doing some digi scrapping and designing when time allows. I was recently asked to join Gina Marie Huff's Creative Team at Weeds and Wildflowers Design which is absolutely a dream come true since I LOVE her designs! If you haven't had a chance to check out Weeds and Wildflowers, you'll have to check them out - they are fantastic!

I've just completed some Christmas trees that I designed tonight while watching the Detroit Lions lose (again)! I really love them and can't wait to do some pages with them. Let me know what you think!
