New Release…Happy Halloween

I am releasing a new – actually old kit – in my store tomorrow and it is one that you have seen before if you have followed this blog for any period of time.  I had to redo the preview because I realized that my style has changed a lot over the last year.

You can find Happy Haunting and the Happy Haunting Cardstock in my store HERE.  It is on sale for 30% off until Monday.

Things have been abnormally busy around here and I can’t believe all of the tasks that keep piling up on my calendar.  One of my newest things is a cake decorating class that my bff Terry and I are taking and I have actually had a lot of fun.  She knows a lot about me if  she takes me to classes where I can be both creative and messy!!  We are working on flowers and I am finally going to learn how to do the basket weave.  I know, it is crazy but I am actually kind of excited.

Terry, Cherry and I are also working on a really RELEVANT bible study that while it was taped around 10 years ago, God is showing his perfect timing in all of our lives.  We are working on Beth Moore’s Living Beyond Yourself, which is about living in the Spirit and man is the Lord letting me know that I haven’t been doing what I am supposed to be doing.  I love it when He shows me that He loves me.

Oh, if I didn’t tell you…THE CONTRACTORS ARE GONE…FOR GOOD!!!  They finished up last Friday, got their final payment and I don’t have to worry about them waking me up early anymore.  Also the house looks remarkably nice and I am really enjoying spending my time in it. 

We picked up the kitten from the vet’s on Friday.  We finally got him clipped, snipped and shot and it is amazing how much his behavior has changed.  He has settled down so much, doesn’t go out of his way to pick on the other cats and stopped climbing on the curtains.  We also got Nala taken to the vet and her ear mites are now gone.  She is also a much happier cat.

The rest of last weekend was spent painting, sorting through the mess the painter left for us, cleaning up all the laundry in the bedroom and running errands.  So much for a nice relaxing weekend.

Another thing that happened was that Tammy and I released quite a few new items in the Life’s Everyday Moments collection.  Look:

You can find it…and all of the other LEM kits HERE.  Tomorrow is also new release day at Enchanted Studio Scraps and there will be more LEM items added.

Exciting News and a new kit

I have news that I haven’t shared with you yet, and primarily because while my head knows this, there are issues keeping it from hitting my heart…Yet.

Wayne and I are grandparents!! 

One of Wayne’s twins let us know several weeks ago that he was notified that he was a father.  Ummmmm, ok.  It seems as though he was playing around with someone who was in a live in relationship and she got pregnant.  The baby was born May 5, 2010 and James was told of her existence right around his birthday at the end of July.  Wayne and I found out about it during dinner one night in the middle of August.  

This is the reason it isn’t quite hitting my heart yet…she isn’t quite real to us yet.  This little girl is almost 4 months old and we have never met her.  I have gotten a couple of pictures forwarded to me on my phone but that just doesn’t make her “real”.

  Jaliyah.Jaliyah_3_months  Seriously ADORABLE.

So now we are all waiting for the baby’s mom to move down closer to James, and while they are not going to be romantically involved, they are going to raise this little girl together, and the rest of us are supposed to be able to do the same. 

I didn’t realize just how much I wanted to be a grandma until the opportunity arose…now I just want to hold her, cuddle her and be “that grandma”.

Since I have not been able to do that yet, I decided to design a digi-kit to celebrate her and capture her introduction to our family.
