circle journal

i F-I-nally finished the cover for my circle journal! beginning june 1st, i will be participating in a circle journal group with some of the amazing ladies over on the soml message board. i can not wait to see what everyone comes up with... so much incredible talent. i know this journal will definitely become something i will cherish and treasure.

i had decided on my topic, simple pleasures, right from the start. but since my hubby became unexpectedly unemployed recently, it really fits my life right now. there are so many little things that can bring a smile to my face, make me laugh out loud, or cause me to just sit back and say, wow... and none of them cost a dime!!

dreams really DO come true

today was my first official mother's day. (last year i was pregnant, so that didn't really count.) i just want to encourage anyone out there that may be longing to become a mother. maybe you're still waiting for mr. right to come along to start your family, or maybe you are married and have had difficulty conceiving... whatever your situation might be, i just want you to know that i'm praying for you. i had pretty much given up on ever getting married, let alone, become a mother. but, miracles still happen today and dreams really do come true. my family is proof. ecclesiastes 3 says, there is a time for everything... be patient my friends, your time is yet to come.

little scrappy project

i finally sat down and worked on this little book... i'm semi-pleased with how it turned out. the book is from creative imaginations, covered with misc. pp scraps and a few embellies. the wording reads:

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139:13-16

it's because of her...

my mom, that i am who i am today. this woman is amazing... this woman inspires me... this woman is my hero. if i can be half the mother to virginia claire that she has been to me over the years, i will be happy. we almost lost her a year ago, but thank you Lord that she is still here. still here to celebrate another birthday... another year to share life, to enjoy life, to laugh and to cry... to cherish each other, to love one another. happy birthday mom, you have blessed me in ways i will never be able to express. i love you so very much.

i have to admit it...

i've become a reality tv junkie. it was bound to happen... i've been hooked on baby story, wedding story, what not to wear, and the whole tlc gamut for years. but, i finally realized the extent of my addiction tonight as i was watching coyote ugly. that being said, i'm disappointed that lil sent kat and stephanie home. i really don't have a clue who will win, but i'm rooting for bri and sandra... someone's gotta root for the underdogs!
vi didn't take a nap today, which means i didn't take a nap today, so i'm about to call it a night. have to get up early tomorrow for the ladie's brunch. i volunteered to help set-up, so i have to be there extra early. (i'm really excited about the food... they always have such yummy foods at the ladies socials!! is it wrong to be excited about the food?)
