New kit at SBB store!!

HUGE kit! This vibrant kit comes jammed packed with tons of elements!! You will get 7 papers, and TWO BONUS QUICK PAGES!!! WOW!!!

You will also get a staple, itty bitty gems, ribbons, cloud journal labels, name label, glitter accents, embroidered dragonfly, small flowers, rainbow rub on, polka dotted felt heart, stick pin, birdie journal tag, photo turn, buttons, arrow, frame, and overlay!!!

Winner of the most disturbing/disgusting thing.....



This one gets the award. ARE.YOU.KIDDING.ME. I totally mean no offense to the lovely lady that made these. Seriously, I am just in shock that something like this exists. AND, read the description. Classic. Here is an excerpt...

Love bleeding? Hang this pad up on the clothesline with pride! This pad has a red flannel bloodstain applique with a heart cutout.

Wait, wait....that's not all girls....

Why use cloth pads? There are SO many reasons. Cloth pads are re-usable, so they are both economical (you don't have to keep spending money on cloth pads/tampons) and good for the environment (less stuff going in the landfills!). They're also good for YOU - these pads are made from cotton, a natural fiber, so your skin can 'breathe'. It's thought that having synthetic fibers next to your skin 'down there' can contribute to things like yeast infections & toxic shock syndrome. These pads are also really comfortable - I would say they're luxurious, compared to paper pads! I like to use the blood-water created when soaking my pads to water my garden. It's a great fertilizer!

AND.... they would go perfect with these...

Now we are all sick..

Yup. I spent half the day yesterday at the doctor's office (after I spent hours dealing with my internet provider because my internet was whack).
Anyway, Talon has been up most of the night for 3 nights in a row with fever. Brett hasn't been running a high fever, but he has been warm, and has a sore throat. Anyway, when Talon gets sick he gets all lovey with me and Danny. So, we have had about 100 germy kisses since he has been sick. Now we are sick. Poor Danny went to sleep around 6:30 last night (I fought every urge in my body to not be overwhelmed after the day I had--plus, I was starting to feel yucky myself). I sprayed lysol all over EVERYTHING in the house, and I washed all the bedding yesterday so that everyone could have a fresh, clean bed to sleep in. ( Danny had to sleep on the couch until I got the bed washed and made, then I helped him to the bed and tucked him in. Poor I only broke down once yesterday. lol. Yay me.

Hey, I rock

I changed my MYSPACE blog to kinda match this blog! lol! I am so proud of myself. ;) I am thinking about updating there, too, for people who don't visit my blog. I don't know, might be overkill. lol..but I can't think of anything new to put on that blog, and I kind of hate not updating. You know? Oh the pressure.

Yup, he is sick..and I am a moron.

Poor baby. Brian prob. has strep throat. Well, the doctor didn't do a swab, but he says that the antibiotics he gave him will cover strep throat, as well as a bunch of other, it was senseless to swab him.
He woke up this morning burning, he gets to stay at home. He is pitiful. He never gets sick, so he is really taking this personally. lol.

Now on to why I am a moron. **confession time- When I get stressed, or nervous I act like a moron. I forget simple things. I shut down.**

Okay, I get to the window to sign Brian in. I forget his birthday. She asks me, I go blank. Finally, I get it together and I come up with an answer (could've been wrong, though). Then she asked his middle initial....again, she is met with a blank stare.' I really shouldn't be able to leave the house, much less take care of small children. Brian (8 years old) shakes his head, and holds his hand out and says to the lady, " Just give me the papers, I will fill them out."

I almost went into a hyena laugh. (My hyena laugh is my nervous laugh. I can hyena laugh at funerals, churches, or anywhere that is completely inappropriate.---FYI- When Talon threw up all over Danny in Wal mart...I hyena laughed)

Anyway, Thank God that I pulled it together enough for her not to call the police on me. I swear, I kept thinking she would hit a panic button or something under the desk (not that a doctor's office would have a panic ...because everyone started looking at me like I had kidnapped this kid. I explained to her that when I get nervous I can't remember anything important. She just looked at me. Mmmmkay. Ugh.

I called Danny on the way home. All I could do is laugh at this point. I told him what happened. He just sighed and told me that I need to calm down. Yes, calm down. He is absolutely right. I have no idea what on earth is wrong with me.

I can break down like this on the phone too. I called a furniture place one time and had to leave two messages, the first one was incoherent. lol. I called and I totally locked up, couldn't remember what in the heck I was calling about. Then, I couldn't remember my call back number. lol.! Also, the more nervous I get, the higher pitched my voice is. If I am really nervous.. it is like I am just dog whistling. The human ear can't hear it, I am just calling the dogs.

I am off to the doctor..

Well, I have to take Brian to the doctor. Wish me luck, I friggen hate it! He has a super bad sore throat, and he is in a lot of pain (he never really complains of being sick- so, I know he is sick when he starts telling me he is sick) Anyway, I am hoping that I won't be at the doctor's office forever. {{Lord grant me the serenity to get through a visit to the doctor's office with out having to kill one of my kids. }}

You know, there is a fine line of knowing when to take your child to the doctor. I really wait until the last minute. My mother use to take us to the doctor weekly (which is prob. why I hate going now)...and the doctors would groan when they saw her coming. I am always worried that a) they will act like I am a nut for taking him in just for a sore throat...or b) they will chastise me for waiting so long to take him in, and he has some sort of crazy bad illness.

UGH. I will bet you money that it will be a simple sore throat that requires nothing but TLC and some over the counter cold meds. (but you never can be too sure). I am a little freaky about it right now with Chandler just getting out of the hospital.

I will let you guys know what happens.

It's done! New kit at SBB!

Love ya bunches!!
Perfect for Valentine's or for just scrapping those that you love bunches!! 8 lovely papers and a layered Quick page in 12x12. You will also get a torn heart, felt heart, painted heart with wings, address journaling page, label, staple, hinge, ribbons, buttons, felt photo corners, rub ons (ring and pointer), gems, and stick pins.

Crap, man... that was not as easy as I thought. I wasted most of my day doing this! lol! I think that it will be so much easier to navigate now.

FYI- The header is a sneak preview of a new kit that I will be putting out tomorrow ( I hope..unless I get side tracked!)

Chandler is home!

He got home yesterday, and I went to visit. He was totally in a bad mood, and has the habit now of hitting himself in the head. So, every time I tried to talk to him or hold him, he started beating himself up! lol! Poor baby. He is just so emotional right now! ;) He is still running a fever, but it has been in check. He had a check up today and the doctor thinks he is doing just fine. He is getting over the yucky stuff. Now they just have to be careful because whenever he gets sick now, he will be prone to have more seizures if he runs a fever. (They say he will out grow this, thank goodness.)

Thanks for the prayers. ;)

Valentine's Day is coming up--

Remember this kit? It's perfect!

And of course my new kit- With love

Pray for little Chan man

Chandler (my twin's little boy) is in the hospital. The doctor thinks he has Roseola.
He started running a fever, then he had a seizure. The doctors think the seizure is because his fever spiked so suddenly. You can read about Febrile seizures here
Anyway, he was admitted yesterday because he had a seizure, and they want to monitor him. He had another one last, Chan man has to stay another night.

I know he is fine, I am just so worried about the little stinker. Here is a picture that Leah sent me (she snapped it with her cell phone- that is why the quality is sooo bad).. He is in his little hospital gown (sniff sniff). (I had to try and fix the picture a little in photoshop-it was so dark, you could hardly see it.)

So, just say a little prayer that Chandler will get better asap and come home tomorrow. (and pray that Leah (my twin) makes it through another night in the hospital.) It has been scary for her, and Nathan..and I am sure that Chandler would rather be home than in this hospital. sigh.

Here is a layout that I did of Chandler (one of my favorite of him) This was June of last year, but just shows you what a cutie he is! lol! ;) I love my Chan man!
