About Me

My photo
I am a person who loves life and loves capturing it in pictures and recording it in many ways. I have been happily married for over 40 years to my wonderful husband Mike. We have raised 4 daughters, were foster parents for 11 years and are now raising 2 of our grandchildren. They are the love of our lives and the light in our eyes. At this time in our lives, we would expect to be planning for retirement, but instead we are planning for the future of these children. Starting over so to speak. At the ripe old age of 50, I found myself as a mom of a pre-schooler again so it's the second time around for us, thus my title. We attend church and teach Sunday School. Life is never dull, as you can imagine. Enjoy the pieces of our lives and allow this grandmother some bragging rights occasionally, ok very often.

Why I Scrapbook

Here is one of my precious students from my scrapbook class. Totally forgot to get pics before they left.  She was so proud. I am excited to share this hobby with others. So without further ado, my list for today.


1. It allows me be to be creative.
2. There is no right or wrong in scrapbooking, I am sort of a perfectionist so this is a good thing.
3. When I am old and senile, it will help me remember who everyone is.
4. It allows EVERYONE featured on a page feel extra special.
5. I can share my talent with others with pictures, layouts, gifts, cards, etc.
6. It has made me many new friends from the scrapbooking and blog community.
7. I get to have my very own scrap studio to create in. (thanks Mike)
8. My grand kids teachers love me to bring in supplies and create with the kids.
9. I love watching the kids looking thru their albums.
10. AND I get to play with my new camera a BUNCH!!!

Ok, one other thing I did today was make a Thanksgiving banner. I spent so much time on this today and it totally does NOT SHOW UP. Need to use bigger letters. But is says, "BE YE THANKFUL", and Kayleigh asked me what that meant. The "ye" threw her off. I just thought this was cute. And then for Christmas you turn it over and it can say "BE YE BLESSED". Cool huh? So, instead of housework, this is what I did today. I have to get ready to go on our ladies retreat with my friends from West Metro. I can't wait! Haven't been away alone in ages. Looking forward to going. Until tomorrow, farewell.
