New Day...Fun News! :)
My big news - I've been invited to join the design team for We R Memory Keepers! I can't tell you what a blessing this is. They are a big company with really incredible products. I've seen them for a while at Hobby Lobby and always loved them, so to get invited to be on their design team is a big honor. I had to wait to share the news until we all got final confirmation, which happened yesterday. :) Can't wait to get started with them!
The layout above is one of the projects I completed for my guest designer spot at A2Z Essentials. You can see my two layouts, a card, and one project here, on the A2Z website. :) I also posted the layouts on 2peas if you want to see more detail. Here are the links:
* Silly Kids * * Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Playscape * * Birthday Card *
My friend Hanni and I are both pretty big Napoleon Dynamite fans. We've emailed back and forth a few times about it and had some good laughs playing on the ND theme. :) Well, she made a LAYOUT about one of our email conversations. I laughed so hard when I saw this layout! Speaking of ND, I got Noah this shirt at Target yesterday....so funny. :)
I've been a little stressed lately about all of the things I need to do in the next few weeks. We are hosting Easter, and we also have Noah's birthday party and a trip to Disneyworld coming up soon. I have so much to do it's hard to keep up. So, I sat down the other night with a big spiral notebook and made a "to do" list for the next month or so. Each day of each week, I've written down several "must do" items. It helped me so much to know that everything was assigned to a day and that it's all manageable. Having it all floating around in my head makes it seem like a lot more work than to have it down on paper. That spiral notebook will be following me around everywhere this Summer. :) I'm also using it to make shopping lists, write little notes to myself, etc. so I'll have them all in one place. Sort of a cheapskate daily planner, huh?
American Idol last night....QUEEN songs. I'm just not getting their themes this year. I wish they'd stick to genres instead of individual artists/groups. I thought Taylor was great and was HIMSELF! I'm not "getting" Paris anymore. I think she's so talented, but she changes too much each week. I know she's trying to show versatality, but it's too much. Again, what is Bucky doing in the top 12? He can't carry a tune with a wheelbarrow. I think he's so sweet and love that he's a country boy, but I think Gideon should have been in the top 12 over him. Ah well... Chris was great and I think Queen LOVED him. Ace was good, too...and I know a lot of people didn't like it. I thought it was entertaining. :)
NEW SCRAPBOOK STORE ALERT! :) If you live in or near Arkansas, you need to visit a new scrapbook store! My friend Teresa just opened a new scrapbook store, and knowing Teresa, it is going to be a HUGE success. She is such a talent and inspiration as both a scrapbooker and a friend. They had their grand opening last night and had over 60 people there in 2 hours. Yay! Here is the store info: (website not up yet)

Russellville, AR 72801

Go shop! :)
I'm feeling very blessed today and know that the Lord is in charge. Only thru Him will I get everything done that I need to with a loving atittude. :)
