What a weekend

What a weekend! I haven't done anything but, worry about my job and how will I pay my bills or where will I find another job. I've updated my Facebook and played Phase 10 (hand held electronic game). I need to make a birthday card for my father's 80th birthday but can't get in the mood. I have no mojo :( I guess I'll see what tomorrow brings. All I know is that something in my life has got to change. I don't do good when I have time on my hands and to much time to think about all this crap with my job and wondering if I should just give up and put my house on the market and try to sell it. However, then I wonder where will I move to, what will I do with my four dogs. I try to take one day at a time but, it's just so hard not to worry when your by yourself and have no one to fall back on or to help support me. Sorry, this is so depressing but, the truth is the truth.

My Scrapbook Studio









The first picture is where I do my creative thing :) I know it's messy but when you're being creative you can't worry about cleanliness. The project that is on my cutting mat is an butterfly album that was Courtney's Valentine's Gift.

The second picture is of my desk and table. Courtney had my desk and did her creative thing with it, I am going to someday paint it white or maybe another color depending wherever I end up at.

The third picture is of my bookcases and glass top table. If you look close on top of my bookcases are some of my altered art items.


LeAnn, if you look even closer to the right on top of the bookcase is my name spelled out with letters that you made me several years ago.

The first picture was suppose to be the last picture that I upload but, I don't still understand all this stuff. Oh, well atleast you can see my scrapbook room. I have several other pictures but it takes to long to upload more than three.

My scrapbook space use to be in the basement but, I decided to move it up stairs into one of my extra bedrooms. Mainly because my dogs stay in the basement most of the time and the puppies where getting into some of my cardstock and chewing on the corners of the paper. Since, I've moved it upstairs I think I have scrapbook about 3 or 4 times in their. I moved it upstairs just before Christmas I think.

Let me know what you think of my scrapbook room.

I plan on working in their this afternoon after I decided what kind of card I want to make for my father's 80th birthday.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

My favorite picture of Courtney and her grandfather (my daddy)

This picture is my favorite picture of my daughter and my daddy which if you notice the date is March 26, 2005 actually four years ago today. Courtney and I went to my daddy's to see my new nephew Riley (Wendy's only boy and my daddy's second grandson). One of the reasons why this is my favorite picture of the two of them is that my daddy is actually smiling.
Daddy if you see this don't get mad. :)

Scrapbook layout of Zoe


This is a scrapbook page of Zoe when I first got her almost three years ago on April 30. She's my baby girl since I don't have any grandchildren. I know I'm to old to talk about a pet like this but, growing up I never had a pet of my own. (P.S. I forgot to mention Zoe has her own scrapbook. album. :) This is one of three pages that I have done for her.)

Picture of Bailey and Zoe




This is Bailey and Bentley is in the background to the right. These are Zoe's and Little Man Dan's puppies. This is actually their one year old picture :). They are full blooded Yorkies. I just didn't have their ears and tails trimmed or cut due due to not knowing if they would going to make it or not. Bailey is so sweet. He looks alot like Zoe when she was younger. Sorry, I'm still learning how to put pictures on my blog. Zoe is the one with the red bow in her hair.

Here I am with two of my scrapbooking friends/co-workers (LeAnn & Mindy). This picture was taken last year while we were at a conference in Mobile,AL. This is just a thought maybe if we hadn't had that conference and spent all that money they would not have to lay off about 70% of the employees. But, that just my thought :)


I'm sitting here with all four of my dogs laying all over me. Well, the days are counting down, just little over a month I will be unemployed.
I wish I could get this off my mind. I can't even scrapbook for thinking about this.
Last Monday my students in my group started a scrapbook of themselves. I told them this was my goodbye gift to them. They will still be working on them this week. They are really enjoying doing this. I will miss my students.
I've been looking for Phase 10 card game online to play but, could not find one. I like to play Phase 10 so long as I'm winning :).
Well, I don't guess I have much to say. Hope everyone has a good and BLESSED week.

Hello, Everyone

It's been awhile since I've added to my blog. I've had a lot of stuff going on in my life. I found out on March 4, that I and everyone I work with will be laid off as of April 30. I am going to miss most of the people I work with. I am trying to not worry about it but, it's hard since I have to work to pay my mortage and all my other bills.
