Pictures Of My Grandmother

My grandmother just passed away two days ago at 89 years old. I'm uploading these pictures here for my sister because she is making a slide show for the funeral home.

Our Love Story

Tomorrow will mark one year from the day we said "I do". But when I think about it, I said "I do" to you long before that. I'll admit that I didn't expect anything to come from that Halloween night when we met almost 8 years ago. I spent the next few hours in your company and you made me laugh. By the end of the night when we parted ways, I knew that I wanted to persue you and see where things might lead. The next few months moved very fast. Our relationship was a whirlwind to say the least. Within a month, you were staying at my apartment, three months after that we were getting our own place together, and three months after that we were expecting Mikey. Fast forward about 7 years and here we are....husband and wife. I never thought that day would, but I see now that everything happened just as it God's time and not mine. I think that in this last year, our marriage has slowly grown into what God has intended for us. Things are not always perfect, but we are learning every day how to deal with our differences and how to communicate better with one another...I feel closer to you every day. I pray that God continues to work in our marriage and that He provides us with the tools we need to grow stronger, closer to Him and closer to each other until we are so close that we don't know where one of us ends and the other begins. I love you so much, baby. After all these years, you are still the person I'd rather spend my time with. You are my rock, my best friend, and my happy place :) And I pray that we have many, many more years together and that God grants us the blessing of growing old with each other. Happy First Anniversary, Shmoopy.

the shopping continues.....

I couldn't help myself! I am admittedly a patterned paper junkie! It's just SOOOO pretty!! And at half can I not indulge myself? I know, I know....I've purged my paper stash at least 3 times in the last year. And all three times has been anywhere between 1'-3' of paper. Which is good and bad I guess. Good because I'm getting rid of it and passing it along to someone who will use it...hopefully! And bad because well, it's money wasted. But in my defense, I am totally becoming pickier about what I buy and do NOT buy papers solely on the basis of it being "cute" or because it's a "really good deal". I know what I like, what I will use and that's what I buy. In saying hung out with my sister on Saturday and we stopped in at the Crossroads Hobby Lobby and we were lucky enough to find the October Afternoon 5 & Dime! We could NOT believe it! They only had it in the 8x8 pad. And they only had TWO pads left so both my sis and I were able to snag one...YAY! If you can believe it, that was all I bought there. Over by her house, we hit up the Hobby Lobby on Bandera and I was lucky enough to find the Crate Emma's Shoppe collection pack!! WOOHOO!! It was hiding under a bunch of other paper pads waiting just for me :) I also picked up the Echo Park Be Mine collection pack. I really love the colors...not necessarily Valentine "theme". I think I can incorporate it into any kind of "love" layout or maybe other stuff too. I had debated getting the Fancy Pants "It's The Little Things" paper pad. I really wanted it, but seeing as how I've spent a little more than I'd like to spend on scrapbook stuff in a week, I put it back. Hopefully the next time paper goes half off, it will still be there. Or who knows...maybe there will be even MORE new stuff?? :) :)

What else? Oh, Lij had auditioned for this Glee Club group at NYA which is where we take him for his guitar and vocals lessons and he made it! YAY!! We got an email last week and his practices started yesterday. Because they will be performing now, they were advised to begin attending the Advanced Vocals at NYA and Glee Club practices follow that. So on Mondays, he is at NYA from 6:30-8:45. I'm really hoping this doesn't interfere too much with his school work or his bedtime schedule. We will see how it goes. I know this is something that is very important to him (his music), so we want to be supportive so I hope everything goes well. He was really excited about it when he came home last night and Miguel said the parents who happened to be there last night were invited to watch them do a bit of the song they practiced, Proud Mary, and he said it was really neat! Wish I had gone!

So, school starts next Monday. Good thing: the kids are back to school, I have more free time, ect. Bad thing: waking up so darn early! I HATE waking up early! lol But it's a good thing because I'm going to get back into my gym routine. I have been feeling super clothes are fitting tighter...not good. So back to the gym for me!

Um, can't think of anything else to write for now, so here's a pic of my new papers. Oh, I've been doing alot of scrapping too...lifting of this woman who's blog I visit. Her link is in my sidebar "mugsyboo". I just love her pages! And speaking of inspiration, I love to watch scrappy vids on You Tube and one particular woman whose vids I like to watch is kraftinkate. She does alot of haul vids, but she also shows alot of her pages and she makes the cutest cards! She recently started up a blog, so go on over and check her out I think my new pages are uploaded to my gallery...not too sure. I'm a bit lazy about uploading them here, then there, then sometimes I just don't want to do it! lol Okay, that's all for now...bye!!

Women be shopping....

lol...I remember the comedian on the first Nutty Professor movie where Eddie Murphy and Jada Pinkett go to that comedy club and Dave Chapelle is doing his act and he's talking about how "women be shopping..." lol Anywho! lol I had seen at one of our Hobby Lobbys last week that they were putting out new paper pads. TONS of new stuff...lots of new Paper Studio pads, new MME 180 sheet pads, Crate collections, Basic Grey 6x6 pads, 7 Gypsies 8x8 pads, Glitz 8x8 pads, Jenni Bowlin pads, lots of Graphic 45 pads. I was in awe of all the new stuff. And I lucked out today because they had already put up the signs for next week's ad so I was able to get the pads at half off today when the sale doesn't really start until tomorrow...bonus! I picked up one of those 180 sheet paper pads of MME Lost and Found! O-M-G! They papers are BEAUTIFUL! And I especially love it because it's the flat paper as opposed to the glittery ones they have in the open stock. I'm not too crazy about glitter on my paper. I also got the Glitz Afternoon Muse 8x8 paper pad which is also LOVERLY (BTW, I say loveRly with an R on, and a 7 Gysies 8x8 paper pad from the Lille collection. I cannot wait to do some scrapping with my new papers! And I know the LAST thing I should be buying is paper especially after all the times I've purged FEET and FEET of paper. I can't help's my weakness!! I think I want to get the Crate Portrait collection which they also had, but I think that is all. Even though everything new they have put out is just YUMMY...I think I've learned what I will use and what I won't and I'm just wiser about my paper choices. I think stamps were on sale too...including acrylic and I did notice alot of new cute stamp sets, but nothing that I wanted or "needed" buy.
I've also been doing alot of scrapping lately. I actually did a page today and I can't remember which day this past week my sis came over, but I managed to make 3 pages that day. I'm too lazy to upload them here, but if anyone wants to check them out, they are posted up in my gallery. Anyway, that's pretty much it for now. Oh, last night after I had gotten out of the shower, I heard Max barking up a storm so I went outside to check on him because I saw him pawing at something on the ground. It was a baby possum! And I think he injured it because when I was coming up on him to see what he was doing, he grabbed it with his mouth and ran. I'm pretty sure he punctured some part of it. It was kind of sad seeing the poor thing struggling to breathe. So, now we are thinking of having Max leashed up overnight to keep him from going into the darker parts of the yard where who knows what can be lurking there!
Well, it's late and we have church in the good night :)

When it rains, it pours....

Oh gosh...what a week! Mikey and I had our dentist appointments on Wednesday and when I had called ahead of time to get an estimate on how much it was going to be for both of our visits, it was well over $250....YIKES!! But what are we going to needs to get done. Anyway, on Sunday Miguel had been outside cleaning up the backyard for Max and when he came in, he told me that he thought Max was trying to get out of the yard by trying to crawl under the fence because he noticed two "scratches" on his cheek. I asked him if he was okay and he said "yes", so I didn't think any more of it since Sunday mornings are always hectic trying to get out the door in time for church so I didn't even see him until later that evening when we came home after running errands and such. I went out to give him water and food and when I saw his cheek, I FREAKED! My poor baby had a circular patch about the size of a silver dollar if not a tad bigger on his left cheek and it was bloody and his hair was all gone in that one spot. I immediately called Miguel who had left to buy some bags of ice he had forgotten to get. I'm a big time worrier and "mother hen", so what I really wanted to do was call the vet and take him in right then and there. But I decided to bathe him so clean it up and get a better look at it. It looked alot better after I washed it off and I put a whole bunch of Neosporin on it, but no sooner had I left him, he was scratching at it again and got it all messy and bloody again. I cleaned it up again and decided to leash him up on the back porch to keep him from getting it dirty and possibly infected. I did a Google search and from what I read and what it looked like, we came to the conclusion that it was "hot spots". We remembered from the last time he had the skin infection on his leg (can't remember if I blogged about that) that we had seen "hot spot" treatment stuff at the grocery strore so Miguel picked some up. But we had to apply it with a cotton swab and anyone who knows Max knows that we cannot do anything to this dog! He does NOT like being "restrained", so we had a heck of a time trying to get the stuff on him. Somehow we managed to get it on him 2x a day, but Tuesday, it wasn't looking any better. I suggested to Miguel that while Mikey and I were at the dentist, he should take Max in to the vet. So I made Max an appointment for Wednesday at 2:00. So, Miguel dropped Mikey and me off at the dentist at 1:00 and took Max in. And by the way, my root canal ended up being a tiny bit painful. I shudder just thinking of it. There was a couple of times he was "poking around" and I actually felt it so he had to give me some more anesthetic....thank you. I still felt a tiny bit of pain on a couple of other occasions, but I just tried to suck it up and be a trooper. I really, really hope I never have to do that again! Oh, so Mikey and I were done before Miguel so we waited for him to come back for us. Turned out we were right about the "hot spots". The vet said it must have started out as some kind of bite or scratch and Max probably scratched it alot and irritated it and it ended up getting infected. Miguel had to leave him there because they had to sedate him (there's that thing with Max again) to be able to shave and clean the area. He came home with antibiotics and we have an e-collar on him so he can't scratch the area. It looks like it's drying up nicely because it was gross and "wet looking" is the only way I can describe it. Oh, but getting back to the "raining/pouring" thing.....this unexpected vet visit cost us over $1oo, so we easily spend close to $400 in ONE day! OMGosh! I get a headache just thinking about it! But thankfully, no matter what...we always have enough....and a little bit more...thank you God for that! :)
On a lighter note, I did a bit more scrapping two days ago I think. I finished up two of the other pages I had packed that day I went to my sister's house. I just need to take some pics and upload. I have a stack of about ten LOs or more that are sitting on my easel and need to be put in albums. Sometimes I'm so lazy about doing it! I went by Hobby Lobby today just to pick up some grey colored cardstock. I saw the super talented Sasha Farina use grey as her background on a page and LOVED it! It might be my new Kraft substitute! I also picked up like 14 sheets of this Girl's Paperie Ledger paper that I just LOVE and use alot, so I wanted to have enough on hand! lol Only because I know at some point HL will stop carrying it and I won't be able to get it at half off anymore. This happened to me already with this awesome Paper Studio grid paper they had a while back. I even bought what I thought was a good amount to last me a while, but I do use grid ALOT and now I'm down to maybe 6 sheets. And unfortunately, they don't carry that pattern anymore :( And speaking of paper, I looked at the paper pads there and found that they have a few new Paper Studio pads which were very pretty, but just not my style. AND....the MME Lost and Found papers in one of those awesome 180 sheet pads! I could NOT believe it! I SOOOO want it, but I'm waiting until the packaged papers go half off so I can get it for ten bucks!! I filed through it and the papers are LOVELY! I know paper is the LAST thing I need to be buying, but I can't was SO pretty!!
Hmmm...I think that pretty much covers it. Just really trying to keep this up. Even if no one else reads this, it's nice to look back later and see what was going on in our lives :)

It is 100 degrees right now! O-M-G! Thank you God for blessing us with a/c because we are inside and nice and cool :)

SOOOO, always, we are in a rush to get ready for church. It never really matters what time I get up, we always seem to be Miguel had been up since around 6 a.m. or so. I later found out he didn't sleep well and had been up all night because he had drank THREE Red Bulls. He asked me to remind him to never do it again. Anyway, he had been out back cleaning up the yard and when he came in, he told me that he thought Max had been trying to squeeze under the fence because he had two scratches on his cheeks. I asked him if he was okay and he said "yes", so I didn't think anything else of it. When we came home later in the afternoon after church and shopping and whatnot, I went out to give him some fresh water and I "freaked" when I saw his cheek. It was not scratches at all. I don't know what it is to be exact, but there is a spot on his left cheek about the size of a silver dollar...maybe a tad bigger. And his hair is gone in that spot. And he has two small flat "dots" about the size of peas in the middle of that area. And it feels like "thick" when I touch that spot. They don't look like punctures in his skin so I don't think anything bit him. I bathed him immediately because I wanted to get a good look at it w/out the dirty face. And then I put a ton of Neosporin on it. But I think he keeps scratching it which makes me think it might be itching him and he had made it bleed and that just looked REALLY bad. I really wanted to cry just looking at him. We leashed him up on the back porch because I don't want him getting it dirty and possibly infected. I really, really want to just take him in to the vet, but unfortunately money doesn't permit it right at this moment. I have another dentist appointment on Wednesday and so does Mikey. Mikey's alone is over $100. Miguel is buying him an E-collar so he can stop messing with it and we are just going to keep putting Neosporin on it and watch him and take him into the vet on the weekend. I washed his face again this afternoon and found another small "patch" under his chin that looks almost like it, so we are definitely taking him in. The "mother" instinct in me is thinking that I don't want to wait and I'm probably going to ask Miguel to take him in on Wedensday while Mikey are I are the dentist. I just do not want to take any chances. We will just have to figure the money part out later. I know that God will take care of us. He always does, so I'm not too worried about it.
So, yesterday after church, Yo and I didn't go to the movies after all :( I was kind of bummed because I was really looking forward to some girl time. Instead we went to drop off a payment and walked around a Big Lots that just happened to be right next door. I had noticed a couple of those carry baskets on top of a shelf in the scrapbooking section so I had asked Miguel to take one down for me. I'm glad he did because I found some COOL American Crafts alpha stickers and some Hampton Arts stamps! I took the other basket down myself, but didn't find anything different in there. In the scrapbook aisle itself, I found a cool American Crafts wood mounted rubber stamp (they had several different ones) and a clear acrylic set that I had actually been eyeing at Hobby Lobby, but I got it there for TWO bucks! I picked up an extra for my sis because I don't think she has it and I think she'll like it :) I only spent $18 :) I also got some happy mail today...some ETSY orders I had made last week...some Jenni Bowlin ink pads and an American Crafts minimarks rubon book. I still have 3 layouts that I took to Chon's that I didn't get to work on so maybe this week. Today was cleaning day and I haven't had much "fun time". I still have blankets washing/drying and colors to wash, fold, iron then put away. Ugh, tired just talking about it! lol But I got alot done today...everything on my list, so I'm happy about that. My mind is just not at rest right now worrying about Max, so for anyone who reads this, prayers for my furry baby would be GREATLY appreciated. AND if there aren't enough things wrong with me/bothering yesterday and Saturday, I wore these shoes that I bought a while back, but just never wear because they aren't as comfy as my "OLD" ones and oh, are they OLD! The last time I wore them, I pointed out to Miguel how the tops were literally "cracked"! So I decided to wear my newer looking shoes, but OMG, all day long my feet were hurting...BADLY. I forgot from the last time I wore those very shoes that they KILL my ankle....the one I hurt..what was it...three years back? To this day, it STILL hurts and especially if I wear those shoes I found out! So, last night...aside from being worried about Max, suffering a bit from my allergies (BAD headache and sinus pressure AND nausea), my ankle was THROBBING all night long. It literally felt like someone was squeezing my ankle really tightly! It still hurts a bit today, but I swear I will never, EVER wear those shoes again. Lesson learned!

Okay, I think that's all for now. Here's a pic to share of my new goodies and a silly pic the hubs and I took yesterday :)

Tooth Update

Well, I had my dentist appointment on Wednesday. Miguel went in earlier to work that morning so he'd be able to leave and make my appointment at 11:00 a.m. I kind of wasn't even nervous about it anymore...just wanted to get it done and over with. He did some of the root canal that day and it didn't take long at all. And, it wasn't bad at all. I had charged up my Ipod so I was listening to that the whole time and trying not to focus on the fact that there is a small power tool in my mouth! lol I still have a few more visits to go before the crown is actually in place. My next appointment is next Wednesday, same day as Mikey. He's getting a couple of small fillings and he will be good to go. So after his last visit, I am going to slowly (as money permits) take care of whatever needs to be taken care of with my teeth. Sadly, we just don't always have the extra money, but slowly but will get done.
What else? On Friday, Miguel got off work early (early for him...6 p.m.) and we went and caught a showing of "Soul Surfer" at the dollar movies. LOOOOOVED that movie! It was so awesome, amazing, inspiring! It is a MUST SEE movie! How people can see someone like Bethany Hamilton and what happened to her and how she overcame it and NOT believe there is a God is beyond me! Her life has God written all over it! It was such a moving film...I cried on several occassions. Not so much because it was sad, but because of how beautiful it was....really good movie! And speaking of movies, I think Yo (bestie) and I are going to go watch the new film with Justin Timberlake and..gosh, I forget that girls name who came out on That 70s Show. It kind of reminds me of "No Strings Attached" which we also saw together, but it still looks like a cute and funny movie and we both want to see it. I think we are going tomorrow afternoon/evening..God willing. Haven't really gotten to spend alot of time with her this Summer so I'm really looking forward to it! :)
Yesterday, I met up with Chon at Crossroads Mall and we took the kids to see that "Judy Moody and The Not Bummer Summer" movie. ( I think that's what it's called) Also showing at the dollar movies. It was a cute and funny movie! Hey, we've been watching alot of movies! Afterwards, we went by Alamo Craft Co. and picked up a prize...some Bo Bunny new release papers I had won from Jane at The Scrapbooking Factory...thanks, Jane :) Then we hit up Michael's where I think I only spent like $10. I picked up a few things from the $1 bins, got a DITTO stamp set that was on clearance and got a pink Sharpie marker because I don't have a light pink. Afterwards, we picked up some food then headed over to my sis's for some lunch and scrappy time. The kids played and I was able to finish two pages. I had packed 5, but I guess I was being a little amibitious in thining I'd get that many done! lol I'm going to leave my stuff packed in my bag though so I can get them done during the week sometime while everything is still together as far as papers and embellies. That's pretty much everything that's going on around here. We have a quincenera to go to tonight as well as a birthday party for one of Miguel's church ACTS brothers. Really don't feel like "getting dressed up" and going out in this horrible heat, but he really wants to go, soo......I wish I had something cute to wear....maybe I should stop buying paper and buy more clothes?? NAH! lol :)

Gettin' Crafty

I think my scrappy mojo comes in spurts. I'm sure it's like that for everyone. And some days I'm just "itching" to create, but I have no scrapiness in me AT. ALL. I felt like that last night, and while I didn't crank out any pages, I did alter this half sized binder and I think it turned out SUPER cute! I used a calender I had just ordered off Ebay. There are a few ppl who I follow on You Tube (watch their scrappy vids) and this one particular woman had THE CUTEST images on the wall behind her! Turned out she just tore out sheets from a calender she got (Gorjuss girls), so I searched for it and bought it from the same seller...$4 and free shipping! The images are just TOO cute! I love all the different little girls! I am definitely going to cut out alot of those images and use them in different ways. I want to frame at least a couple for my scrappy area too. Anyway, so I used a cute little image of a girl with an umbrella and then I remembered that I had downloaded a free digital scrapbooking kit from...can't remember where, but I remembered it had the cutest quote about rain and rainbows, so it all came together perfectly! Oh, and I just happened to have a couple of sheets of the Crate Seasons collection which just happened to have...yep, rainbows! I just LOVE the way it turned out! I don't know what I'm going to put in it, but for now, it's just sitting on top of my scrap table where I can admire it! :D

Also got a couple of 7 Gypsies stamp sets off of ETSY for CHEAP and CHEAP shipping too! I am loving me some ETSY these days. Alot of these sellers have awesome scrapbooking product and I love that they don't have the same insane shipping charges as some of the scrapbooking sites. I have two different 7 Gyspsies sets coming to me from a different seller in a couple of days. I plan on making some embellishment tags w/them. I'll post pics when I get some done :)

Tomorrow, I have a dentist appointment....eeek. About a week and a half back, my bestie and I went to the movies to see "Something Borrowed" which btw, is an awesome movie. Read the book first, loved it, then saw the movie. Loved that too. Anyway, we got popcorn and I kid you was my FIRST had JUST started and I CRACK A TOOTH on a darned popcorn kernel! At first, I thought I just had a piece of popcorn stuck in there somewhere, but the more I messed with it and felt it with my tongue, I knew something wasn't right! Thank you, God that it did not hurt...still does not hurt, but I'm going to need a root canal and a crown put on it which is going to take a couple of visits AND be pricey! :( :( SO sad about that! But...what are you gonna do? It needs to be done. I'm not crazy about the dentist as I'm sure alot of people aren't so please send some good vibes my way tomorrow please :)

What else?? Not much else going on here....will try to keep this blog up better, but no promises :)

I worked on some pages last week, but hadn't gotten around to uploading them here yet. So, here ya go :)

The one with the tags is a lift off Wendy (blog linked in the sidebar) and the 2gether one is also a lift off of Keandra...LOVE her stuff! Oh, also had a teeny shopping spree at Hobby Lobby this past Saturday. Paper, stickers and some other stuff was half off. I picked up a pack of Kraft paper because you can never have enough of that! And a few random sheets from their open stock. As well as some AC alpha stickers I didn't have and some striped paper clips! I had been searching for these EVERYWHERE! I'd gotten some black and white striped ones weeks back at Office Max or Depot...not sure, but that was the only color they had. These are an assortment of red, black, green and blue I think. Thanks for taking a peek :)

Just keep scrappin'

I was able to do one more page yesterday and another today. I hadn't worked on any wedding pages in quite a while, but I really love the way this one turned out. That is one of my favorite pictures from our wedding day! :D
I also uploaded a picture I took of Mikey today. The kids have gotten to taking the 3D glasses and popping the lenses out and wearing the glasses like that! No joke! It's kind of like a "trend" or something w/the middle school aged funny! Anyway, that's all for today!

Me + scrapbooking

= one happy girl!! I was kind of dragging on getting some scrapping done today. Even though I had kind of planned to spend the day scrapping since I had done all my house cleaning and chores yesterday and had decided I would try to get some pages done. I guess I should say I was feeling LAZY! Yes, that is more like it! lol But even so, I sat down at my table and just started playing with some paper and I was able to crank out THREE pages that I just LOOOOOVE!! Two were very loosely based on other people's pages...and the one of Mikey asleep in his walker, was ALL ME :D I just LOVE that hot air balloon which I just bought in a pdf file from an ETSY shop! I got THE most awesome pdf files from a seller on there. Gosh, I can't remember the name at the moment, but trust me...they were some awesome looking images and CHEAP too! For being able to print these things over and over FOREVER...the price was awesome! Each sheet had 4 images and each file was no more than $2.50. I also uploaded a picture of some library cards I altered which I also got a while back on ETSY. I think they turned out really cute and I could use them for cards or something. Anyway, that's about it...just wanted to share my scrappy yummies with you guys!

Stamps for Trade

These are some acrylic stamps I have for sale or trade. Both the Autumn Leaves flourishes sets have been used. A few are stained from the ink, but they are still in working condition. The Autumn Leaves scrolly type frames and borders is new and never been used, but I threw the packaging away. The hearts and stars might be Lil' Davis...I can't remember the brand and only a couple of the stamps were used from there...also is very good condition. The scrolly journaling frames are Kaiser Kraft and were never used, but taken out of the original packaging. The Sassafras Lass Edgy Egdes is also new, never been used and still in package. The other Sassafras Lass are the doodled borders and corners. Here is a link because it is a little hard to see without the packaging. Those were used too, but in good condition.

I really want to sell them all in a lot so that I don't have to pay seperate shipping. I will price them at $25 plus cheapest shipping (will ship in a big enough bubble envelope), maybe $3 at the most....not too sure how much it would cost, but it shouldn't be much. Please post here or send me a private message either here or on Scrapbook Mentor...thanks :)

Matchbook Mini

Sorry about the pics...they are out of order and I am too lazy to fix it! lol :)

Rahel over at posted a tutorial vid on how to make these cute little matchbooks and I thought it would be an awesome idea to make a mini book out of, so that's what I did today! Since I spent the WHOLE day cleaning, doing laundry, washing fans, bathing dogs...or dog I should I gave myself permission to do nothing but scrap today and I did! I still have a few pages to fill...about 3 or so, but this is what I have so far. I even made one for Mikey and he filled it with pics too! If you haven't checked out Rahel's You Tube vids, you totally should! I found her on there a few months back and fell in love with her scrapbooking videos and style! Her name on You Tube is swissgirl90. She also started up a scrapbooking website called Scrapbook Mentor. If you haven't checked it out, go on over and's FREE!! She also has an ESTY shop where she sells some of her OWN designed acrylic stamps and her blog is Swissgirl Designs....go...NOW! lol :)
