So, lately I've been thinking about my friends and how much they effect me. There are different people in my life who make me feel different things, who I learn from, and those I just really enjoy being around.The past week and a few days, I was recovering from having my wisdom teeth out, yeah, I know, why did I wait so long? Anyways...I had a lot of time to think and ponder. That could be good or never know with me. I also had time to make a few cards to send a few special people the cards I made. The first card I made for my best friend, Liz. She is great. She has always been there for me and I try to return the favor. I feel she deserves great things and sometimes I feel bad because I don't feel she feels this way about herself. When I came up with this card, I thought of her. Letting her know to "emrace life" I used groovy guava and purely pomegranate card stock. I also embossed the "embrace life" and added ribbon I got at Michaels.
For the next card, I was inspired by my friend, Angie. Every time I see Tinker Bell, I think of her. So when I saw this paper and stickers at Michaels, I had to get it and come up with something to make for her. Hopefully she has already received the card! I met Angie at Nicole's and thought she was great from the get go. As I got to know her, I realized we had a lot in common and she was easy to talk to. I miss hanging out with her, sipping wine and just talking about anything and everything!
The 3rd card I made for my friend, Nicole. I just got this "Friendship Blooms" stamp set from Stampin' Up! I used some card stock I had in my stash and some of the Tinker Bell paper.
The last card I made for my friend, Tina. This was a gradual friendship:o) When we started hanging around each other more, we had a lot of fun! Then we shared stories and experiences and it blossomed into a beautiful friendship. I used the same stamp set as Nicole's, but just changed everything.
I've met a lot of other people that have touched me in some way, good and bad. And I've learned a little something from each experience. I'm thankful to each and everyone of them. That's all for today.

I started making a baby scrapbook for my friend, Wendy Duazo. I hope she likes it. I'm using paper I got at Michael's and Stampin' Up cardstock. Is it too plain? I wanted to just start it out for her...hmmmm. I did a few more pages that I actually stamped on too. But I liked these simple pages. Hopefully I'll be able to finish tonight. I ran out of snail and stampin' mist, but I have an order coming in, so it should be fine. I'm still learning how to use my blog page, so if the layout looks funny...well...I'll get it eventually!
Anyways...I hope to be a more active blogger, but finding the moms know what I'm talking about. I'm only on right now because the kids are playing and don't need my attention at the moment:o) I also need to get more pictures posted, etc. etc. etc. I guess that's it for my ramblings.

Wednesday, wednesday

We're halfway through the week and I don't know what I've done. Am I wasting my days? Am I being productive? It seems a lot of my friends are or have moved far sad. These days I stay home a lot. Bella has ABA 3 mornings a week, so I usually scrapbook or make cards while she's doing that. While the kids are in school in the afternoon, I'm at the gym. Then I shower and pick them up. When they're home, it's snack, homework and then I make dinner. After dinner, it's showers and bathes, reading then lights out. Then I wake up and start over. On the days when we don't have ABA, we don't do much. I'm hoping to change that. Any ideas?
I know, I lead a pretty redundant life...but I love it for the most part. I just wish I had more adult interactions. I need to get hold of Angie so she can help me figure out this blogging know, add pictures and what not. It took forever to figure out how to add links! I'm not computer savvy. That's all for now.

Here I Am

So I decided to start blogging like my pals Angie and Vivian. I like looking at the new ideas Angie comes up with and can't wait to see the things Viv blogs about:o) So my thought for the day is this: How will I make my blogs interesting? Hmmm...I need more time to think about that one. More to come later:o)
