Taking a small break

I am taking a small break from designing templates & kits for awhile so I can catch up with some of my Lay Outs I need to get done for my daughter's scrapbooks. I will post some of my layouts here when I get a chance. I just want to say thank you to all those of you who downloaded and used my templates from my hearts series. I hope you are enjoying them.

Happy Valentine's Day

I am so pleased with all the comments I got from my Hearts Template Series. It makes me feel really good that there are some of you out there that like my ideas and work.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day. I surprised my husband this morning by putting his Valentine's gifts in his truck last night so he'd find them first thing this morning. I made him a picture frame that says Daddy's Princess on it and put a picture of Allison in it for him. We also made a card from Allison. I found a really touching card at the store that had everything I wanted to say to him in the words I'd use if I could get them out as elegantly as the card was writen. I bought him a Reese's Peanut Butter cup heart and we made white chocolate covered pretzels at MOPS yesterday so I added those in with my gift. I think he was surprised.
Here is a picture of the frame I made:

Ok now for today's template. This is the last template in the Hearts Series.

We have been battling this stuff for too long I'm going to really press her doctor for checking other things to be sure everything is ok with her. I have been an emotional wreck this morning after her waking up at 5 a.m. running 103.7 fever. Oh the joys of motherhood.

My Personality...or what the test results show anyway

I took this test a friend of mine did on MySpace on her Blog and well it pretty much is the truth about my personality. Pretty cool anyway so I thought I'd share for all my blogger friends out there.

My Personality

Openness to Experience
You often resist any cravings or urges that you have, but sometimes you give in, however you feel enraged when things do not go your way. You are sensitive about being treated fairly and feel resentful and bitter if you think you are being cheated. You tend to feel overwhelmed by, and therefore actively avoid, large crowds. You often need privacy and time for yourself. You prefer dealing with either people or things rather than ideas. You regard intellectual exercises as a waste of your time. You do not like to claim that you are better than other people, and generally shy from talking yourself up, however you believe that a certain amount of deception in social relationships is necessary. You are guarded in new relationships and less willing to openly reveal the whole truth about yourself. You take your time when making decisions and will deliberate on all the possible consequences and alternatives.

Take a Personality Test now or view the full Personality Report.

A range of Jewelry.

More Hearts

I'm feeling a little under the weather today. Everyone has been sick around here and I've been battling a sore throat for 2 days and woke up this morning with a stuffy nose. Allison has had a runny nose all week and seems to feel bad this morning. We've been working on potty training and she doesn't want much to do with it this morning. My husband has to work all weekend so I'm stuck at home sick and with a sick kid. Blah!

Here is today's Heart Series template

Did I tell you??

My daughter is fixing to turn 30 months old (2.5 yrs old) on the 4th of February and she has shocked us by learning to spell her name!! I'm such a proud mom. She is just too smart. So to remember this moment I made a new Layout tonight check it out.

I haven't fallen off of the face of the Earth!!

I am so sorry. I have really let my blog go this past 2 weeks. I have just been having a lot of things coming up and trying to do too many things at once. I have worked on more templates for my Hearts Series, but have decided to wait until February 1st to reveal anymore templates. I hope to have a template each day in February for you guys up til Valentine's Day so that means I have about 10 more templates to make to catch up, but I'll get it done I promise. So be looking out for 14 new templates between February 1st & the 14th. I also have a new kit finished that I will get up sometime between then. I just wanted everyone to know I've not disappeared and will be back in a couple days with an exciting new series for everyone to enjoy and use.
