Today's Mood

Take this test!
Your color is red, the color of racy sportscars, blushing cheeks, and luscious roses. Red symbolizes passion, romance, and love. So, since you're ruled by red, you probably trust your feelings more than your brain and tend to act spontaneously. If you see something you want, you go for it without thinking twice — impulsive is your middle name. You don't wait around for people to make decisions, either; you dive right in. Quite the romantic, you pay close attention to your emotions. In fact, if your heart isn't in what you're doing, you won't be satisfied. Of course, even when you do pour all your energy into the projects you tackle, your impetuous nature means your passions can shift as frequently as the wind. That's why some reds have trouble with commitment. Our advice? Next time you're feeling fickle, think before you act, if possible. You might be surprised at the results. Overall, though, it's great to be red. No one lives life more completely than you do.

An artist in the making

So this is our new artist. She decided on Valentine's Day to wear her new Tutu. Here she is drawing circles and squares. At least for once she is only drawing on the board and not on her clothes!

My Japan Scrapbook Pages 1 & 2

This is the first page of my Japan Scrapbook!

This took me a long time to get it finished!

I have over 72 pages to get scanned.

I can't
wait to get them in a slide show.

A Future Diva in the making!

My inspiration for scrapbooking....

This is Kate. She will be 2 in April. She comes to our house every Thursday. She opens all my makeup cases and decides on the one lipstick that will leave your skin a bit red. She put it all over her face and had 'some' on her lips!

This is my payback for her using my makeup - I get to make her look like she comes from the movie "The Grinch who stole Christmas" the kids all have hair that's funny like this. She is going to me a handful when she is a teenager but we don't want to rush that! She is always singing, dancing, laughing and just plain happy. She certainly puts a smile on your face!

February Update!

Ok, so I finally joined a kit by the month club and it's not as bad as I thought it would be. This month's kit pictured above is from Simply Obsessed. The entire package seems to be colors and coordinates that I would have picked to do a project with. My next decision - which took some searching on the web - was to come up with what I was going to do with it. I really need to start publishing my work and get it out there.

I must recommend becoming a member of this kit club - Here is the website:

I went to a crop this past weekend at Fordham University and just loved the group of women that get together! They could not be a nicer group of people. They share their ideas, laughs and I really had a great time. Some crops that I have been to doesn't seem to be as much fun to go to, the people don't really allow you to 'join-in' since they already have their 'groups/cliques' members already selected, I find that hard to handle so I kept searching for the right group to join and I think I finally found it. Once I use this month's kit I will post the final pics!

Happy Scrappin'
