Plus all my other obligations you know housework and cooking LOL there just isn't enough time in one day or week to do everything that needs to be done.
My daughter is now a 1st grader. I tell you this, her kindergarten teach Ms. Sestach, was such a great teacher. She sent home a letter to Kimberly telling her what a pleasure it was to have her in her class. She also sent home a DVD with pictures of all the kids thur the year. She put the pictures to music, the first song is the new song by Mylie Cyrus - The Climb and the second song was My Wish by Rascal Flatts, talk about the water works flowing. I cried thur the whole thing. But what a nice memory she will have when she gets older. High School graduation and showing this to her. LOL

I am having a sale in my store this weekend. So come take a look.
Just click on the flyer and it will take you to my store. Plus I have a new kit too, to celebrate The Red, White and Blue.and you don't even have to buy this kit you could get it for FREE, yuppers I said it FREE. All you have to do is come join my over in the forum at K-Joi Studios for the July Color Challenge. Create a mini kit or quick page that you can share with everyone or make a layout using the color pallet that I provided. That's it that simple and you get this kit just for participating in the challenge. I hope you all come over and play along with me.

Autism Awareness

I have a good friend that I work with over at K-Joi Studios whose son was just diagnosed with Aspergers, which is a form of Autism, she found this kit that the proceeded from the kit are going to Autism Speaks, two wonderful women (Jessica Sprague and Ali Edwards) are matching every sale of this kit with $2 for Autism Speaks. So, for every purchase Autism Speaks gets $12...and you only spend $8. Here is the link to the blog where you can read more about this.
And then our very own Angel, from Designs by Angel also has a kit to bring awareness to Autism.

If your interested in Angel's kit, just click on the preview and it will take you to K-Joi Studios.

An Interesting Day

I had such an interesting day on Monday. And yes this is the first chance I have had to write about it. I have done nothing but think about it all week.
I am on Facebook, yes I am . Thou I don't get on it much. But most of all of my husband's family is on facebook. One of his brothers Alan, and his family are missionaries in Russia. They are home right now for a year and his oldest girls are on Facebook, so it will be a great way to stay better in touch with them when they leave in Aug to go back to Russia. I had gotten a email that someone wanted to add me as a friend. You know how names look familiar but you just can't place that name. I sat there for the longest time just staring at the name, cause I know I knew it, I just couldn't remember from where. So I went to Facebook, click on his photo and don't you know, all those memories came flooding back from my college days at CCBI, in Syracuse NY. It was one of my classmates from CCBI contacting me. It's been well over 20 years since we have spoken. It was just so amazing, I actually felt giddy again, haven't felt that way in a long long time. Bob, is his name, we called him little Bobby. He was such a sweet heart and the partying we use to do. We had some really good times together. It was so nice to hear from him after all these years. After Easter when I get a chance I want to find my yearbook from there and just go back thur some more great memories I had from College.

I have two new kits going in the stores. One is in the store now over at K-Joi Studios, hopefully I will have time tonight to get it in the store over at Michelle's Angels and Studio Style Designs, cause this morning I have kind of a busy morning. I am making my husband spaghetti and meatballs (but don't tell him OK) and then I have to get all the eggs stuffed for Easter Morning Egg hunt with our daughter. She starts Spring Break here tomorrow, Saturday we have a Easter party at church to go too, then 2 of my husbands nieces have birthdays this month, so we are getting together with his family Saturday night to celebrate those, plus his mom just had hip reconstruction surgery last Friday. Just busy busy weekend, so not sure what time Saturday night we will be home. So I am taking the kid upstairs to bed Saturday night and daddy is playing the Easter Bunny so I need to have it all done by then. OMG Things you have to do.

Here is my new kit Dino Land.
Then I have another new kit but it doesn't have a name, I just couldn't think of anything that sounded good, so I thought I would give you all the chance to name my new kit and if your name is chosen you get the kit for free.
BUT you need to go over to K-Joi Studios' message boards to leave your suggests. then all the suggestions that I get, I am going to make a poll of them and you guys get to choose the name. The name that is chosen will win the kit for free and all the names that didn't get chosen will be put into a hat and my daughter will pick out a name and that person will also win the kit. So you have two chances to win. I hope you all come over cause this kit is really awesome. It looks better than the previews, I hate the previews, everything has to be so small to fit everything in there. LOLSo if you want to come join the Name my Kit Challenge, click the preview and it will take you to the message boards, but you have to registered to post.

Just a little thank you for all your nice comments on the Easter Blog train and ADSD Blog train. I would love to see your layouts that you make from the kits that I do. If you have any that you would like me to post on my blog, pass them on to me. I would be more than happy to put them on the blog. BIG HUGS to everyone.

And one final note if I don't get a chance before Sunday, I want to wish everyone a very Happy Easter. Have fun with all your friends and family celebrating this Easter.
