New Stuff

Yes....I've been busy...and lax at posting much. It IS the holiday season & I AM a mom lol
Have to bake Santa cookies tonight and he has to drop off the rest of the presents.
Zamera's teacher told her that she feeds the reindeer carrots every took me
a couple hours to convince her that she can't stay up for Santa & his reindeer.
It was really sweet though. Okay - on to the advertisements, yay!

Zamera picked every durn thing that went in this kit - colors included.
I'm still not sure how I survived. So basically this kit was made by a 6 year old.
You can check it out HERE

Designer In Need

I don't know how many of you know Princess LaLa - but I do.
I'm a big fan of her work, even though I often can't afford to show it.
27 is a bit steep for my blood, but I was VERY happy to find a grabbag
that was created by another designer, Wetfish Designs, to also help out.
Her grab bag is 6 dollars - and that is really more in my price range. So yes,
I picked that up. I just wanted to take a minute and show you this, and maybe
you can afford to do this - to help give that family a Christmas, no matter how big
or how small. Happy Holidays everyone - Be Safe.

You can find this store HERE

he last 3 months have been EXTREMELY hard on my family, financially.
Between losing the job I had held for 3.5 years, welcoming Merrick to our family, finding out my husband's raise has been frozen indefinitely, finally seeing John enroll in HVAC school (so we have some hope of this situation getting better), numerous repairs to the family truck so John can get to and from work & school, and let's not forget DHS losing 3 applications for medicaid & food stamps (which means no insurance for the 2 older boys, and paying out of pocket for infant Dr. appointments)... We don't have enough money to pay our rent, let alone buy a few little presents for our boys to open on Christmas morning.

Pay a little... Get a lot... Help me give my kids a warm home and a few presents for Christmas.

I made time to get some layouts done! YAY!!!

This is my daughter Zamera & her friend Alex. I used a kit called Embrace Simplicity.

I can't remember what kit I used for this one, but I do remember I absolutely LOVE it.

My little Serenity =] Doesn't she look like Boo from Monsters Inc????

My wonderful girls. They grow up way to fast. Parts from many kits.

This is my amazing husband. I don't even know HOW to say how much I love him. He simply is the only man for me, the greatest man I've ever known. I love you my Ricky!

Thanks for looking,
..:: Loyal ::..


Hello!!! Yes, I am having a BLAH day for sure. It snowed alllll
night long and then it turns out the schools have a 2 hour delay
today. It was so bad outside, until just a lil while ago, I almost
didn't let my daughter go to school. I did have a friend come pick
her up though. My tires aren't good and I sure do not want to chance
my children on these roads right now. I have to get a new set. YUK!
We're talking 400 - 600 dollars. Grrrr...evil 17" tires. Great SUV though!

I've been hunting and pecking through freebies today, just to see
what is out there. I SHOULD be working on this new kit I'm doing.
Zamera, my oldest daughter, picked the color chart. Eesh...child
does nothing quietly, it's all out loud for sure! I don't mind though,
she's perfect just the way she is. To me she is anyway, and that's enough.

Hey, if you look in my chat box, you'll see a post from a woman named
Amber, click on her name and go check out her blog. She has a HUGE kit
that you can buy for 5.00$ - and I mean HUGE. Soon as payday comes
around for me, I'm all over it. There's a reason for this kit, a story behind why don't you go take a peek? Just for kicks =]

I need to get some new freebies out myself. Just don't seem to have time
anymore. Though apparently I have time to pester all of you!
You don't mind do you? Course not! Yeah that's what I thought LOL

OH! News! Jan 1st 2009 I will be opening a store. Yup, ME!
There will be Commercial Use & S4H/S4O products only. No Personal Use
stuff will be sold in the store. If you're interested & want to know more
then just scream at me, I'm sure I'll hear you! I'm scared to tell you
the truth, but I have two wonderful ladies with me on this. One is helping
me fix my mistakes [oops lol, thank you Lippy!] and the other is bound
to grab me by the shoulders and shake me into my sense [ I Heart You Moonie!]
...maybe I'll make it after all!

Okay, I'm off to go hunt down more freebies. Whew...tough job!

Be safe & stay warm!

A Full Day!

Man oh Man oh Man!
When I say a FULL day I mean a FULL day. My oldest, Zamera [6] has
been nagging me to find a church since March. I finally did.
Now me, I'm not a church person - nothing against them, they're just
not for me ya know? Well, Zamera LOVES it. We were up & moving
by 7:30. Wooohoo, I got to sleep in a hour! YAY! .. Grabbed a quick shower,
think somethings up with my water heater :: cries ::,
I made them breakfest, the whole nice clothes thing [ even though
we didn't have to], did their hair all nice like and was ready 45 minutes
before we had to leave -.- Go figure.
Anyway, 8:45 rolls around and I am parked infront of my friends driveway
ready to pull my stearing wheel out of my SUV. NOT a church person. Or crowds..
I don't like crowds.
Right well, she and her family are ready to go so off we drive....naturally within about 2 or 3 miles I am so lost Im not sure which way is up and which way is down. I swear she does
that to me on purpose lol. We get there and her son, Alex, and my Zamera rush off to
Sunday school with dare I say? Glee!! I actually put Serenity [14mos] into the nursery.
The longest Serenity has been away from me is the time it takes me to go from home
to the 7/11 and back. [Lil gas station about 1 minute down the road driving ]. She did rather well
except the for the fact that she refused to be put down. Works for me!
After Sunday school I had to do my best not to fall asleep. The preaching is the worst
part for me. This guy though, wonderfully, did NOT say God this God that God here God there.
I'm sorry but that drives me NUTS!!!!! Okay - no religious talk on the net. :: zips lips ::
Well after that we head off to my friends house for lunch. Happy everyone! They have dogs & cats so Serenity was very happy...and very clean by the time we left. Zam & Alex played
education games, little did they know, till lunch..and then after. Now in the middle of all that,
my friends phone craps out. Her husband has to go to work, I need air in my tires
he watches the kid while we run on post [ onto a military base ], stop to check out their
prepay phone, they have NONE. Though the lady would not shut her mouth...and I did
NOT need to know the location of EVERY one of her piercings. TMI!!!!!
We rush to the gas station, I fill my tires, fly back to her place, pick up the kids,
and take off to wal-mart. Pick up things I do need...and don't need...she gets a new phone..
we take the kids to the park for a short bit..and then head home. Now WHY did you need
to know all of this? Well, honestly, you didn't. Nice to know that I can do more
then advertise though huh?
I'm outta here though, tons of mail to go through, kids to put to bed
and so on and so forth....I want my bed....
Have a great Day/Night!

..:: Loyal ::..


I was going to keep going with this but I was just having such a hard time
with the elements I decided to finish it as a mini kit. After that, I decided what the heck
I'm just going to give it away =] Random Acts of Kindness are a wonderful thing.

Welp, Belle comes in Full Size & Tagger Size.
I would go with the full size since the tagger size is a bit rough around the edges
due to resizing. I'm telling you, this kit hates me or something lol.
8 Papers & 17 Elements. 300 DPI of course!

Here's the preview [ made with the tagger size kit, you can see what I mean ]

The Sick House

I have it! Yes I do, the whole durn sheeeebang.
My 6 year old is sick, isn't phased at all let me tell ya!
My 1 year old is sick, WHINEY! She has an appointment today at 11.
I'm sick, which is just irritating. I don't have TIME to be sick.
I don't think the eckiness is listening though.
Both my brothers are sick.

Hopefully soon, I will be able to smell again! Course
it will only really take an atomic diaper from Serenity to clear that right up.
You think I'm joking?! Omg .. Sick Kid = WHOW DIAPERS!!! Twice
I nearly got physically ill, three times I choked & EVERY time I stick
my face in my shirt. It's like I've been feeding that kid high voltage beans
and extra green broccoli or something.

Anyway, I might be down for a few days, hopefully not but maybe.
Going to work on my new kit "Belle" as well.

Keep Warm & Drive Safe!
