Blogger Challenge #20

This challenge was to write about one of three things:) I chose to write about the best thing going for me right now.

I would have to say my family is the best thing going for me right now. I love them dearly. I have the most wonderful little boys. Although they have spent thier summer fighting and stressing
But I couldnt imagine life with out them.
I have a wonderful husband who at this time last year I almost left. But through a lot of work we have come to a much happier and healthier place in our relationship:)

Well that is it. I am so not a writer. But I hope to change that as I do more of the challenges:)

Also dont forget about the contest:)

Dont forget

about Chatter Scene Blogger Challenges:)
I am gonna start doing them more too. So that I am not always boring people with just my paper crafts:)

Win Preserves Cricut Cartridge

I decided to do a give away. My husband purchsed me a cartridge I already have. It is the Preserves Cartridge. I can not return it because he took off the plastic seal the box comes in. So I decided to use it as a give away instead:) The cartridge is brand new never used. It has the reward points inside. Never linked to gypsy because I already have this one. It just isnt in the plastic anymore.

So to win this cart sign up to follow my blog and sign up over at Chatter Scene is an online community for woman. When you sign up there post your into in the welcome center. Then hop on over the the Scrapbooking and Paper Crafting section. Post over there at least two times in that section somewhere. Then come here and comment on my blog that you did and tell me the username on chatterscene so I can check. At the end of the contest I will gather all entries and give them each a number and use random number generator to pick a winner.
I will then send you a private message over at Chatter Scene if you won as well as post a comment here on my blog:)

Also if you like Chatterscene please stay and chat with us on a regular basis:)
I also do fun contests there periodically.
I am trying to grow the community and would love more people to come. We have a section for just about anything! What better way to get Chatter Scene out there than to give away a free prize:)

Good Luck everyone. I will end contest 8/14/2010.

On another note sorry about not posting more. Summer and kids keeping me busy. But I do have some things I will try and post up soon:)

New Contest for expecting moms!

New Contest for expecting moms!
We are going to have a contest for current members and new expecting moms. All members are welcome to join in for a chance to win a $30 Babies R Us gift card. All you have to do is get expecting moms to join the site! The member who get the most expecting moms to become members by the deadline will win! Also there will be a gift for the new expecting members. The most active new member will get a $50 Babies R Us gift card! How will we decide who is the most active new expecting mom? We will take an average of the number of days they have been a member and the number of posts the make up to the deadline.

The deadline is May 15th. We will start at midnight eastern time tonight. That gives you over a month!
The new members must be expecting moms, not new moms or TTC, because this is a contest specifically geared toward the pregnancy forum!

Current members:
Let the expecting moms know they have a chance to win th $50 gift card to Babies R Us, and dont forget the easiest way to invite them and get credit for it is to use your referral link, go to settings at the top right of your screen, and copy the URL with your referrer id in it! Also you may want to let someone know the rules and how they can win when you invite them. Any questions just ask.
New expecting moms:
To win you must be currently expecting, posts cannot be nonsense posts, like "ok" or "whatever", in order to count towards your post count, posts all over the board will count, before May 15th check into the General Pregnancy section and give us your name and due date to be eligable to win. We will be doing an average of your posts and the days since you joined the site. So if you have been a member 3 days and have 15 posts your average will be 5, and if you are a member 15 days and have 40 posts your average is 2.6, so the member for 3 days would win! This way no matter when you were invited you still have a chance to win as long as it is before the deadline! So get to posting and we cant wait to get to know you better!

Go sign up over at Chatter Scene to have your chance to win a babies r us card:)

Last years shorts

So the other day I decided to pull out my shorts and summer clothes to get ready for the summer season. While getting them all out I decided to try on a pair of shorts I dont know why I just did. I go to pull them up and they would not go past my thighs! MY Thighs! Have I really put on that much weight over the winter? Nah they must have shrunk right? I get out another pair. Same thing! Wont get past my thighs. I wanted to ball my eyes out.
So I have decided that I am going to work much harder at my diet and excercise program. My goal is to at least be able to pull up last years
I am gonna watch better what I eat and I am gonna try and add ten more minutes to my time on the treadmill. As well as look for other ways to stay active.
Anyways Rant over

Thursday, April 1, 2010


It always seems like there is so little time to get anything done:( I have been trying to make time to get to scrapping. But it just never seems to happen. I just keep saying I will in an hour or I will in the morning. Or I will do it every Monday. And yet I never do.
I just recently really decided I wanted to scrap and since my oldest is 14, I have 14yrs worth of pictures to go through and scrap. I think that is why I keep putting it off. That is a lot of pictures to go through and organize for scrap
That is just one thing I want to do but yet never get to.

I also use time as an excuse not to excercise. When I really need to get motivated and excercise. Same thing. Next week I will start. And Next week comes and I just dont have the "time".

What do you do to motivate yourself to get things done? Or are you like me

This weeks blog challenge is to write about someone who inspires you.
Want to join in on the the challenges? Get ideas for blog posts? Check out the bloggers r us section at Chatter Scene.

This was really hard to narrow down as so many people inspire me for many different reasons. So to choose one was very hard for me.

In the end I am choosing my mother. She never lets lifes issues get her down. No matter what she has been through. She has survived being married to an abusive alcholic. Making it through something like that and still having a positive outlook on life:)
She works very hard for everything she has.
She is always supportive of me and never in any way discourages me from things I want to do or need to do.
And she is one of my biggest fans.

In The Closet

I am a bit behind on the blog challenges So I am gonna try to catch up lol.
Want to join in on the the challenges? Get ideas for blog posts? Check out the bloggers r us section at Chatter Scene.

We recently converted a closet into my own personal scrap area:) I am very excited to have my own space but not sure how I feel about having to be in the closet
Hopefully having a place away from the kids will encourage me to scrap more.

So I wanted to share pics with you all of my closet scrap area.
