Hi Everyone!

At Detta, Joy and Cheryl's request, here is an update.

Eric and I have been going through hard times in our marriage. Please pray for us.

On to happier news...

Here are a few cards I made for Papercrafts Magazine Gallery Idol contest. I'm proud to say that I made the Gallery top 20!!


Ryan came home for two weeks. For two weeks we had a plethora of smelly teenage boys in and out of the house. It was nice to have the house noisy again, even for just a little while.

Yes, I did go to CHA. Here is a pic of me and a good friend, the ultra talented Basic Grey girl, Kelly Goree. Isn't she just so dang cute!!

Here I am with two of my roomies, the ultra talented Margie and Becky Chabot.

Here I am working the Piggy Tales booth with owner, Debbie Juden. I love Piggy Tales so much. They really make me feel like I'm a family member and not just a designer!!

Ok, Detta, there's about 4 pictures of me smiling. Yes, I do have teeth. But I look horrible when I smile, so now you know why I don't. LOL!


We were supposed to go to Cancun for a week, but dummy me thought you could still board an airplane overseas with just a driver's license and a birth certificate. Needless to say, we didn't have our passports so we had to reschedule our trip for a later date. So instead we went to Texas to visit with my mom for her yearly visit to the states. I was going anyway, but since we cancelled the Cancun trip, I was able to spend more time in Texas.

We took Connor to San Antonio so we could see Shamu the killer whale at Sea World.

We also visited the Alamo while in San Antonio.

It was also perfect timing for me to catch Ryan on his first day of school. I haven't missed taking his picture on the first day of school. I was worried I wouldn't get it this year since he lives in Texas now with his dad, but it worked out that I could be there. We also took Connor to Surfside beach. It's not the prettiest beach, but hey, it's a beach complete with waves, sand and sea shells!! So he was in heaven. I'll post some beach pics soon. For some reason, my camera card is giving me an error message when I try to download them to my computer.

Here is a picture of me with two of my bestest girlfriends, Gracie (middle) and Maria (right). We worked together at the environmental analytical lab for Dow Chemical company. We had such great times working together that we're now friends for life. Although we've all gone our separate ways, we're still close and keep in touch and get together when we can.

Here is a picture of me with my oldest, Joshua taken at El Toro- my favorite Mexican Restaurant in Clute, Texas.

Thanks for visiting, y'all!! I haven't forgotten about the RAK I promised way back when. In fact, I have several tubs of swaps that I've never used and probably never will use. I hope to get a list of them together to RAK. So check back. When I post the list, let me know which ones you want and I'll send them to ya.
