May I wish you a Beannachtái Lá Fhéile Pádraig (pronounced: ban-ach-tee la fay-le Paw-drig) Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Have you heard the News? There's a new kid in town and it's name is Creative Cottage!!!!!!!! Whooooooo!!! Can I get a what! Can I get a What, what!!!!!!!!! We are all so excited. Maybe the "OTHER" store need not be visited by me ever again.

Check out for all the new classes for March! We have some new DT members so I think the fresh blood will make it fun and exciting. All us veterans will continue to deliver great classes but a bunch of the girls have switched it up too!!!!! We are also hosting a contest with some great prizes from Club Scrap AND Hot off the Press! They have some incredible product!!!

What's new with us?? Kelly will start soccer, we are in the midst of selling Girl Scout cookies and I am happy to report I haven't eaten a one!!! It's been hard but I am standing firm!!! They keep talking to me from the corner but I am NOT listening, lol.
Jillian got the Terrific Kid award at Cimino for her advanced reading!!! We were so happy and proud of her! She also joined Daisy's and is sooooo excited to get to be like big sister Kelly. They actually got to go to an event together last Friday night!
Billy continues to crack us up with his Billyisms. "Absolutely not", and "I'm gonna tell my dad that you're so pretty" whenever he want something. When he tells a story he says I did that tomorrow instead of saying yesterday. It is so cute to listen to him!!!!I both love and cherish the days I get to spend with him. All too soon he will be starting school and I will no longer have my babies, sniffle! It goes by too darn fast!

Anyone from SOS who actually took the time to read my ramblings get 50 Extra credit points in Design Class just for enduring it, lol!!!! Just post here that you read it and if you can't seem to post then IM me. I am a sneaky one!

Your Brain is Blue

Of all the brain types, yours is the most mellow.
You tend to be in a meditative state most of the time. You don't try to think away your troubles.
Your thoughts are realistic, fresh, and honest. You truly see things as how they are.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about your friends, your surroundings, and your life.

Confessions of a Scrapbooker seems to be the proper title for the newest event sponsored by the local Scrapbook Stores in the Tampa Bay area! We are going on a Treasure Hunt. Check out the link here:

The goal is to hit up 14 local stores in a week (including the weekends). They really are all over the place. Zephyrhills, Clearwater, Sarasota, Lakeland, just to name a few. The biggest kicker is I am sooooooooo excited about doing it. You know you love scrapbooking when. . . . You agree to use up more gas than you could ever possibly dream just to complete the treasure hunt. . . . Spend days galavanting all over the place just to get your passport stamped. All for supplies you could get over the internet and have delivered right to your door. However, that wouldn't be as much fun now would it? I thought maybe I was crazy but when I went to get the passport bag I learned that just about all 500 bags sold out in approx. 3 days. So. . . . I guess I can find comfort in knowing I am not the only one crazy enough to do this, lol.

The true confession: I told my DH thats what I wanted for Valentines Day! No I don't want jewelery, or chocolates, I WANT SCRAP SUPPLIES AND I WANT TO DRIVE MYSELF CRAZY DOING IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hey, I never denied I was OBSESSED!!!!!!!!!

It Feb. already! I've been busy working on making altered mailboxes for the kids. I made a heart shaped book for my DH for a Design class I teach at
It was so much fun and so easy to do!
My mother and I went to a charity crop for her birthday and had a really good time. This was our 2nd year in a row.
My confession: I didn't even complete one layout. I find I prefer scrapping at home with all my toys right at hand!
Kelly got braces! Wow the kids are growing up too fast! She was excited and picked blue and green elastics. One side is bothering her now though.
The first picture cracks me up. Billy cannot seem to keep his eyes open for the pictures I take. I've started having him close his eyes and then telling him to open just before it flashes. Almost all the pics I have of him are either with his eyes closed or of him straining to keep his eyes open and he looks so funny. Hopefully he will grow out of this soon.
Billyism's: Lately Billy has been talking into his Buzz Lightyear watch. So the other day he kept telling me his watch said we needed to go and pick up Dubba-D. That's all I heard all day. Later on when Dubba-D was here he got mad at her because she made him clean up his toys. So he came running to me and told me that his watch says Dubba-D has to go home now!
Happy Valentines day!
