I have already made a double LO and a single LO for our vacation scrapbook. I will post pics after I take some with my (new to me) camera. My Mom and I switched cameras because she doesn't like hers anymore. Fine with me - hers is newer and it is a Nikon CoolPix.

I haven't had a chance to do much blog stalking or crafting but maybe I will get a chance today??

The sentiment is hard to see in this pic but it says 'You're a Hoot!'
I'm going to enter this card into Momo's Tuesday Challenge.

I'm the type of gal that likes to explore different aspects of a hobby and that is the same with papercrafting. Right now I'm a little obsessed with Digi Stamps and coloring images. I don't have any Copics but I do have some SU! markers and a set of Bic Markers that I'm using.
I have a card in mind that I want to make with a pirate theme so I began my search for a crazy pirate chick. After much stalking and searching (and a little help from my friends) I found a great stamp that I ordered from All That Scraps - The Kraftin Kimmie Alicia the Strawberry Pirate which you can see HERE. Now this is not a Digi but that's OK - this stamp is an unmounted grey rubber stamp and I can hardly wait to use it! Now I just have to get some EZ mount foam...
When I was in search of my crazy lil pirate chick I enlisted the help of two amazing bloggers that I love - Nicole and Marlene. Go right now and check out their blogs which are fantastic!!!
Nicole is the Canadian Nickel and super talented! I've fallen in love with the Digi's she uses from Tiddly Inks. You can visit her HERE
Marlene is 'Disguised as a Grownup' and pee your pants funny, especially if you like snarky and sarcastic (which I do). Visit her HERE
OK go off - be inspired and creative and I will have some pictures and hopefully a video for you shortly!!

I'm pretty bummed about the way L&O is ending. I just keep telling myself it will be going out the same way it started, unassuming and 'real' with no closure, alot like life, really. If there is one thing I've learned in the last decade it is this...Life goes on. No matter if your grieving, ecstatic, loyal or in my case, melancholy. So, that will be the way L&O goes out.
Now, I'm left wondering, what will temper my summer TV addictions. I watch all of the Real Housewives and plan on watching Bethenny's new series. I'm going to need something gritty and procedural to temper these reality shows that are my 'guilty pleasure'. I just thought of a show that will help with that this summer...The Closer.
Right now I'm obsessed with the song Home by Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros.The more I listen to it the more I like it. It makes me feel happy so I think I will play it continuously to help with my TV sadness.
**For those of you that don't watch Real Housewives of NY, the title of this post refers to a quote from the latest episode of that show. It's completely out of the blue and hilarious. **
Please leave me a comment, I love to read them! Especially if you are bummed by the farewell of two of television's iconic series'.

My Mother's Day gift was.....drumroll....the Create A Critter cart!! Woohoo!!! I'm so excited. I got it in the mail on Saturday but I've been so sick I haven't worked with it at all but that is about to CHANGE. I'm gonna wear it out this weekend. Lol.
I also joined the swap that Momo is hosting and I'm excited about that. The swap is for Cricut cuts so I thought that would be really cute and fun to participate in.
I've gotta go so I can get caught up on all my friends YouTube videos. I've missed all of them this week...I'll probably be up late into the night...Oh well at least it's Friday!

My youngest daughter is nine months old today too! I told you it was a big day at my house LOL. I've been home with her since she was born and I think the last nine months have FLOWN by. It didn't seem to go so quickly with my 3 1/2 yo. That seems funny to me because I went back to work when she was three months old. You would think it would have gone by faster...
I'm very excited because last night I got to order my Mother's Day gift! Guess what I ordered....drumroll....Create A Critter cart. I ordered from MemoryMiser.com and the cart was 39.99 with free shipping!! I'm so excited!! You should check out the website if you are interested in ordering any Cricut carts. They are VERY reasonable and offer free shipping with any order over $34.99 (Cont US).
OK it is off to bake cupcakes for our birthday celebration!!

I'm being very brave and posting a video on my messy scrap room. Just so you know, my daughter says "Mama!" I can't lay down!" I asked her to lay on the couch and watch Tinkerbell in lieu of going upstairs to her bed and taking a nap. Enjoy and let me know what you think of my first video.

I have only been a SAHM since August when my second daughter was born. After my oldest daughter was born I was off work for three months, then went back to my job as a banker. My pregnancy with my second daughter was very challenging for me physically. I started having pain and contractions around 32 weeks then was put on bedrest the first day of July '09. Bedrest is one of the most difficult things I've lived through (physically). It is so stinkin' boring, you can only read so much, watch so much tv, etc. I hadn't found Robyn (my pink stamper) or anything like that yet. If I had, boy, the time would have passed much quicker. My daughter was born Aug 6th when I was 38wks along. She is a wonderful baby and I would definitely go through it all again to have her and let me tell ya, that's saying something. Haha.
Anyway, since being home with my girls, I've had a hard time adjusting to a more domestic life. I can't fathom how I got anything done when I was working full time and being a mommy. There is always something to do. A great friend did warn me that the second child changes things. Totally true! Change is good though, right.
So, this is a long, long post, huh!! I might have to give a prize to anyone that gets all the way through it...LOL. The blogosphere gives me some socialization which I totally need and miss from the work place.
Please continue to comment, it really does mean alot to me!! :)
I can be pretty tech savvy but I do need some assistance and he's a computer geek so that's helpful. I'm very blessed with my family and friends!

Last week was our Spring Break and we had great weather. The girls and I played outside and did some Easter activities. We colored eggs, well, I colored eggs and the girls kinda watched. We colored with sidewalk chalk and enjoyed each other.
I've been having problems with my Meniere's (an inner ear disease that causes extreme vertigo) and have been bedridden about three times in the last seven days. I am scheduled to get a shot in my eardrum on Thursday. Hopefully that will help. I'm anxious to get that over with and on the road to recovery. I loathe being bedridden and completely dependent on others to take care of my family.

One of the most exhausting things about parenting a Pre K child is getting them to bed and to sleep. It seems lately it is such a struggle for Mae and I'm not sure why. I don't think she is to the point of no longer needing a nap because she is so grouchy and whiney if she doesn't get it. It's very frustrating at times.
Going downstairs, hopefully the kids will nap...ttfn
