Clipboard Projects...

These are a few clipboards I have made. I am making them as gifts for Christmas. One clipboard holds a post it pad on it and the other hods a calendar. The calendar and post it pad can both be changed out. I added a pocket on the back for the other calendar pages. I used small clipboards from Staples. They were $1.38 each. I bought a four pack of post it pads for $1.99 and a four pack of RSVP pens for $1.99. The RSVP pen has matching paper in it. Just decorate with your paper of choice and embellishments. Very quick and very easy.

Baby gift

Here is a baby gift I put together for my friend. I used a clear bucket that I emptied a bunch of chipboard out of. I used coasters to make the little picture frame. I used inspiration from Dawn to make the little book. Thanks

Family Pets

Meet our extended family...Scout and Tanker (Tank for short). Our cats.

Arrival Mum for my friend...

I made this mum for the arrival of my friends baby. I pieced it all together. I am so proud of it. My friends baby had to stay in the NICU for two weeks. They proudly hung it next to her incubator in the NICU!!!!

Entry for Layout Contest

This is the layout I entered for the Scrap A Fair Friends Layout Contest. My son was around nine months in these pictures. We were at my parents house in Palestine. He was so mesmerized by the plants and flowers. He kept trying to touch everything.

Latest Project.

I made a book to keep my household information in. The book has a tab for each month and additional tabs for other sections. Each month has a calendar, along with a bill page, expenses page, grocery list page and notes page. Other sections include important numbers, bulk shopping sheets, menu sheets, special events sheets to make any necessary lists for events such as birthdays or other parties. I thought that with moving into a new house it would be helpful to have an organized way to keep up with everything. Hopefully it will be a real help.

So much is going on.....

So much is going on right now. January was a big month of reflection and decision making for both my husband and I.
1) A big career decision was made on my part. I will be hopefully teaching in the fall. I enrolled in an alternative certification program that will enable me to get my teaching certificate. When I started college I was going for education and made a change to healthcare. However I have a longing to teach and will be fulfilling that dream. With that said PLEASE PRAY FOR ME!!! I am taking my Life Sciences Certification Test Feb 23, 2008 at 2:oopm. All prayers are welcome.
2) DJ and I are buying a house. We will be closing the week of the 25th. WE will be moving the end of the week. It was a major decision but one we were definitely ready to make. WE will be moving to a new city so I will be keeping in touch with everyone via email as I attempt to meet new people in my neighborhood.
3) Finally I will be having surgery the monday after we move into our new house. March 3, 2008. It has been a long time coming. I am ready to have this surgery and looking forward to the relief it will bring.
4) My final event coming up is to say I will be completing my Bachelors Degree on March 3, 2008 (yes the day of my surgery). That is a long awaited event. I will have my ceremony in which I will walk in June, which by then I will be working towards my Masters Program.

Okay well how is that for a run down. Busy first of the New Year. This is definitely the first year that has seen so many changes and goals that will be followed through with. I will be posting pictures of the new house soon.

Hope all is well in your lives and goals. Have a good day.
