Well we ended 2009 with a bang, my oldest daughter Shaina was in a pretty bad car wreck and broke her arm on the afternoon of the 23rd. We are still fighting with getting her a rental car and having the adjuster look at hers. Sheesh what a mess. The other driver claimed 100% of the liability but that doesnt make it any easier. Thankfully Shaina's arm turned out to be ok a week later and didnt have to be recast. It was a very tiny stress fracture. Hopefully we can get her a rental today (tired of her using my car lol) and start looking for a new car for her. As you can see hers is totalled. Hopefully 2010 will be a lot better!!!

Rest in peace Jack

So today while I was on a trip I got a bit of sad news. My buddy and coworker Jack passed away last night in his sleep. He was 79. We were both hired on at the bus shop the same day and have worked for the last 13 years together. Everything from our daily routes to trips to firecamp. I will truelly miss him. He was complaining at the end of July while we did summer school of being dizzy alot. I suggested he go have it checked out. He did and was diagnosed with a tumor on his brain. After over a month in San Francisco he went to Medford for some rehibilitation and chemo/radiation. He finally got to come home about 2 weeks ago. All was good. But he didnt wake up this morning. At least he is in peace. My prayers to his family in this really tough time. I love you Jack!

It's turning into fall

I can't believe our summer is turning into fall so quickly. It is already into the 30's at night. I havent posted in a couple weeks, with school starting back up I have been busy trying to get my route in order. I think I finally have it where it will work best for now at least. Hope everyone got their kids off for their first day of school without a hitch. It was a little wierd to me this year only having Tanisha. So used to shopping for two etc. But was much nicer on the budget :). I applied for another DT so we will see what happens. They announce the new team tomorrow. Wish me good luck. Well off to hop in the shower hope everyone has a great day!!! Keep smilin'

Back from vacation

So my vacation was amazing. I got to spend the best two weeks of my life with my babydoll Jeff. We had an amazing time. Spent 5 of those days with my girls and alot of it with his kids as well. We went to Frontier City and all the kids got along great! Then we took the girls back to Kansas and all they could say is its so flat lol. It was sad when they had to fly back home. Then we went to Altus, OK where I got to meet his mom and dad. They are great people. I love them! Then off to Oklahoma City to spend some time with his best friend Scott and his wife Jackie. We spend the day at the Elk's pool, what a blast!! Then the last night was spent alone just us two. It was the hardest thing I have ever done was to leave that day. It still chokes me up to think about it. But with any luck he will be here in less than 90 days!!! Then we can spend our lives together!

Some Changes

Just wanted to add a post about some changes that I am doing. I have stepped down from the DT of Pages in Time. There were alot of things I wasn't happy with. Things that should have been handled alot differently. Your welcome to message me privately if you need to know more, otherwise, I am still a member of the site and still love the chat. I will still frequent it and post layouts and such.

Wednesday, August 12, 2009


So I am still on vacation and still having an amazing time! My girls left yesterday and it was definately bittersweet. As much fun as we had with them here with us, we still want some much needed alone time. We did have a great time with them, went to the Oklahoma City Memorial and museum (how sad that was), took the all the kids to Frontier City, had a great time there. Went back to the hotel for some swimming and some awesome conversations. Leaving tomorrow for the City again to meet parents and hang with some friends before heading back home. (I know I am not going to want to leave) :(

Breaking Free!

Here are a couple layouts I made using the new Breaking Free line from MY Mind's Eye! I have to admit I am smitten by their paper and embellishments. I only wish my lss would carry it. I drive 80 miles to the nearest store that carries My Mind's Eye. Needless to say I stock up lol.

I love how this layout turned out. I tried some of the pleated folding on the side, some handmade flowers, border punches, added some bling, lace and a great butterfly transperancy.

On this layout I took full advantage of the double sided paper. I hand cut the scalloped circle, flipped the inside circle to the other side of the paper, added some faux stitching, some bling, some more hand made flowers using the embellishments for the insides of the flowers. I love the cute tag for journaling.

Thank you for looking!

Happy Father's Day

This is my father. He passed away June 14th, 2007. He fought a long and hard battle with lung cancer. He was an amazing man. He was in the Navy, married a beautiful wife, had 3 great kids, was the life of the party, everyone's friend. He was talented with wood, loved working on cars, and spending time with his grandkids. I just wanted to take time to honor him and let him know I am always thinking of him! I love you dad.

Pins and Needles

SO I applied for the design team and I am anxiously waiting to hear from them to see if I made it. It's a huge chance but hey I can't win if I don't enter. They are calling people this week. I am hoping tomorrow my phone rings. If not they also chose some for honorable mention I at least hope I am in those ones. It is a huge prize of $500 plus an 8 month contract. It would be so amazing. So keep your fingers crossed for me. Here are a couple of my pages.
