Why can’t Friday be tomorrow?! I’m so happy and thrilled for such exciting news, but on the other hand, it’s also pretty nerve wrecking to think about it. Here’s a hint to keep everyone guessing: It comes in different sizes. Any ideas? Some people have emailed me with guesses, but I’m not going to say “yes” or “no” until this weekend — that is if time permits. I’m totally going to have my hands full.
I did not get a chance to post yesterday and wish all mothers a joyous day, so although one day late, Happy Mother’s Day to all women (or any other women who have helped foster and love somebody special). I once heard from somebody, that a mother’s love determines how we love ourselves and others. I whole heartedly believe this.
Thank you, Mom, for giving me the life that I have – I now know that I love mine. I love you unconditionally forever and for always. You rock my world to the 92930809843029840293128763812th power.
I’ve been so swamped with so many different things that I have not really scrapped that much. On the other hand, my scrap room is about 80% clean! I can now see the floor, and my desk is finally cleared. My desk is a glass tabletop with space right below it for storage, so I decided to put trays filled with random scrap supplies. I’ve got a tray for random letters, buttons, chipboard, jewel/pearl adhesives, diecuts, etc. I find that it’s convenient because you’re able to see a handful of supplies to use on projects as opposed to having it sit around never being utilized.
As for finished layouts, I created two more layouts recently. Both of them are for the clever and creative Deana. I asked her to swap photos with me, again… and she graciously accepted! She recently created a layout of Maui, and it is so ADORABLE! It’s totally going to go on my wall of inspiration along with the other layout she created with a picture of me in Hawaii. She sent me a couple of photos to choose from, and I decided to just make two different layouts for her! Hope you enjoy these, Deana! Be on the look out for some “happy mail” some time soon!
1. “You Are One Blessed and Lucky Mom”: The journaling is what she wrote on her blog about the experience of being a mother to her beautiful daughter, Bryn. Find it here (Sorry about the blurry part on the top – the scanner was giving me problems!). Lastly, this was inspired by the current challenge over at DreamGirls.
2. “My Favorite Scrapper”: I totally love Deana’s scrap style. I can’t get enough of her ability to create something brand new every single time. She inspires me in all ways possible!
