Updates, rain, anniversary

I thought it was about time I gave this old blog a makeover. One can't really revive unless they put in a little effort.  I followed the trend, and went with a clean and simple design using colors I love. A beautiful Aqua shade paired with pink and gray.!  This nearly breath taking, well at least in my eyes, shade of green/blue has always been one of my favorites and I love seeing it in style, season, fashion now.  Now thats over with.
March 29, 2013 was my 10th wedding anniversary. Oddly enough, we were married exactly a year after we first meet. Some said that was crazy, others said it would never last, but for us it worked. A military career including deployments & injuries, 6 cars, 5 homes,  2 kids, and a dog later were still hanging in there. Marriage is not easy but you make it work if you want too.

March 29, 2003. 

Georgia has been nasty, windy, cold and wet so I'm still waiting to take some shots to show you some new scrappy work.  If the lovely crazy Georgia weather clears up soon, I will get on that.   I finally got around to using Cosmo's Mr Campy line.  I've only had it since like 2008 or something close to that. I loved the line in the store, but once I made it home, I didn't have any clue how to use it.  Does that ever happen to you? So it sat around only to be pulled out looked at and stuck  back in the drawer.  Fast forward to an almost two year long scrappy break, and two little adventurous boys playing in the leaves in our backyard.  Suddenly the papers and the photos were perfect and the pages fell together without effort.  I literally used 99% of the all papers that I had purchased from this collection.  I was a scrappy happy gal that night.

Now that the Easter Bunny has came and left his goodies I am heading back to bed.  Happy Easter Bloggy friends!

Fresh Start

Its truly been forever since I last posted anything here.  In fact, my last update was over a year ago.  What have I been doing you may ask?  Everything! Everyday life, work and all the fun times little boys bring to ones life. Along with painting, decorating and souring the Internet and online shops for arm chairs, drapery medallions,  peacocks, and other odds and ins.  By the way, arm chairs are a real bitch to locate. Ok, well at least decent ones, at a somewhat affordable prices are impossible.  I'm still looking.

I finally painted the art/tech room a lovely light blue green shade. I wanted to paint the walls pink, but my 5 year old insisted that if I painted pink then that would mean no boys allowed and he and Bry would miss me.  He would miss me, because he could never come in the pink room.  Gotta love little minds!  I made a trip to the famous Ikea and bought the Cameo.  After about 2 years away from the hobby, I finally made a layout.  Plus it was made using new at that time, but stored away for two years products.  Yay.   Then I went on to make about 20 more. hehe.

I will leave you with a photo of my little guys.

Big B and Little B.
