Is anyone else out there totally going crazy the last week??? I can't believe I haven't published to my blog for 5 days!!! We've had family parties (in town and out of town), our own Christmas stuff to take care of, and church stuff to do! I've been busy with the Photoshop classes at GDS too, not to mention that the supreme team contest at GDS is starting and my kit is up first!!! When I went in to see my doctor last time, he said to make the next appointment for today and I gave him a look've got to be kidding! There's no way I can fit that in! But hey, at least my kids aren't sick right now!

I have to tell you about the Supreme team contest at GDS! It starts again on January 3rd. If you are good at creating layouts and you want free GDS products, then sign up and see if you can make it! At least you will get the free kits for trying out...the first of which is one of mine!!! You can find out more and sign up here.

And, there is a huge 50% off sale going on right now at GDS on all of the seasonal items, which includes a lot of my stuff!
Here is a free template for you (finally...LOL):

I can understand how you were unable to blog since first things had to be first. I look at you in amazement because of the tremendous responsibilities you have. Your dedication to your family at home and church is an intricate part of your life, and I wouldn't want it to be any other way.

Love the use of the vertical mat's and its placement on the left border. To include a smaller mat under the larger mat, yet not touching the top or bottom edge, speaks highly of your professional use of such ingenuity within your template designs. So thanks for the great surprise template of today. I really thought you would be attempting to get some rest as we enter the weekend. LEAVIN LUV! XOXOXO

My Little Ironies

  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
