Sale starting tomorrow, Freebie today and Vacation photos!!!

Hello blog followers!! I pray that you all are enjoying the fall weather that has begun to settle in. Every year I tell myself that I want to make it up to Gatlinburg to take in Fall up there in the mountains and this yr I was blessed to be able to do that with my daughter. Ofcourse the leaves had not changed yet but the scenery was beautiful and there was plenty of fun to be had.
Well, this is the best picture I could take of both of us!! LOL, as you could see I look like I am trying to get away from the camera. It felt like I was about to kiss it.

One of the neat things we were able to experience was Ripleys Believe it or not Museum. That was fun and farely cheap especially for Homeschool families. Malia really enjoyed it,seeing all of the unique items and reading the interesting facts. There was one section that was creepy we try to avoid those types of areas but you had to go through it to get to the rest.
Well, even though the leaves had not changed yet the mountains were still abs…

Rainy Day Monday!!!

It has been raining here all day in Eastern Tn. It has made me some what want to just read and nap but it is much needed here in this area. Feels like Fall!! Today has been an interesting day, my daughter who is twelve blessed me today with just sitting and sharing her heart with me. She expressed to me that she is realizing that as you grow and get older life gets harder and responsibility comes into play. She really is not fond of this and would like to go back to being about 8 yrs old. She is struggling with a few things and so this was weighing on her heavily. Praise God though because she came to me and talked with me about it and then cried in my arms. I am so blessed that she felt comfortable enough to talk with me. I believe that this is how God wants us to be with our children and how he wants them to be with us. There are so many teenage girls out there lost and looking for directions, we have to pray that they " will turn their hearts to their fathers and mothers &qu…

A Day Late!!!

Good Morning!!!! So I was out yesterday doing some much needed shopping with my great coupons!!! I was able to score muellers whole wheat pasta for .25 cents!! Woo Hoo. I picked up 45 boxes of it and only paid like $7.50. I love couponing!!! Anyway since I was gone all day I did not get to post anything on my blog especially the freebie. So I am putting it up this morning along with two new files that are for sale. This morning in Eastern Tn is is only about 57 degrees out and only going to about 82 today so it truly does feel like it is time start scrapping again!! So get those cutters out and make some great projects. Enjoy them and happy scrapping!!!!

I created this file for pictures that I took of a homeschooling project. It was so much fun. My children were learning about the Ancient Egyptians and one of the projects was for Matthew to be wrapped up like a mummy. It was so much fun. Malia was very eager to be his "Mortician" Here are a few pics that show the inspirati…

3 Fun Files and 1 Freebie File!!!!

After alot of thought and organization of my day. Which includes devotions, housework, homeschooling a 7th and 1st grader and preparing meals. I have decided to go on my own with my designs and die cuts. I was with Visual Designs by Chris which by the way is an awesome site and I recommend everyone going to the site and checking out all of the cool stuff that Chris has over there. I was just not able to put the time into the forums and challenges and such so I felt like it was not fair to others. Therefore all that I can offer at this time is just my files here on my blog and actual die cuts also. I will offer my files in the following formats: KNK, AI, SVG, GSD, and WPC. All of the files you see will have been precut to know that cutting will be smooth. If you see a file that you would like to purchase just slip me an email and I will contact you for the transaction. My preferred payment is Paypal but I can also take payment through the mail. After each file you will see the file num…

May Grab bag!!!!!!!!!

It is time for another Grab bag!!! Let me tell you that if you have not purchased one of these yet, then this is the one to get. Not only does it have three great topics for scrapbooking but the files are outstanding this month. Plus VDBC's very own Sharon Mobley was kind enough to add in a bonus file that is too cute. Here is a peek at that.

I absolutely love this file!!!!! Sharon did an awesome job. The footprints are so cute and the title is beautiful. So hurry and snatch this bag up. Early birds get the whole thing for only $7.00. That is a steal. So have fun and get ready to cut!!!!

Friends, Fun, and lots of Laughter!!!

God has so blessed us in our lives. No matter where he lands us whether it be for a short season or for a long time he always blesses us with wonderful people. I truly believe that God created us to be in relationship with others continually and I love to be able to watch that happen in my children. What a fun weekend!! Matthew (the one in the middle) was blessed this weekend by having some of his friends over to play and sleepover. This is Nicodemus and Barouk. They are two very sweet little boys. As you can see all three of them went through costumes, constantly switching roles and laughing all the way. I do not even think yoda could keep up with all three of these boys. They all enjoyed playing star wars, and they had lightsaber battles and then at one point I saw the dinosaurs out and then of course their was the clammer of little feet all over the house. Up and then down and then repeat!!! One of the cutiest moments was when Nicodemus had bumped his head on our little table in t…

A Fresh Start

I am finally back on my blog. It has been hard for me to come here. You see the last entry I made was on October 1, 2009 and on the next day was when I found out that my 12 week pregnancy had ended, that the baby had died. It was a terrible day and many times when I would come back to the blog I would see that date and just cry!!! I have conquered that now with the help of my heavenly Father!! He so graciously showed me one morning that I just needed to give it all to him. So I did and here I am back on the blog.

So much to catch up on! My husband and I have decided to put our home up for sale and when it sells move on back to sunny Florida. This in my opinion has been the hand of the Lord also because I have never in my life been able to call anywhere home before and just recently I found myself longing for home. For the first time that name actually had a place with it. It is Florida. For anyone that knows me they know that I would have never called Florida home but God has shown me …
