I’m switching back to blogger. I plan on switching all old links that bring you here to the new blog. Blogger just seems easier to customize to reflect my products. Here is the link to the new blog:

This was actually about 10 days ago, but I just saw it. A designer who’s work I greatly admire and love, JenLin has gotten a spot at ScrapMatters! Jen has wonderful kits, but I especially love her boy related ones because they are always so spectacular and so much fun. Here is a link to her blog, where she often posts add ons to her kits: 

And here is a link to her store: 

And here are some pages I have done with her two of her older kits.
 (made with her Baby Rex kit which unfortunately has been retired)
(this one was done with the add-on to her gorgeous Melon Ball kit, which is available in her store!)

Yay Jen!

I started actually throwing up Friday. Yay. (not.)

I’m uploading a new freebie for you later. I don’t have the preview done yet, but here is an element with the name of the kit:

I actually made it a month ago, but, um, kinda forgot to upload it.

A little updating and a freebie.

How horrible is it that I am so utterly sick of school already? I’ve been back less than a month and I hate it. I hate my new advisor, I hate not getting to see the boys, I hate having to lay them down for bed as soon as I do see them, I hate carrying my stupid backpack, and I hate being tired, hot, and miserable from walking around campus pregnant. (Okay, so I don’t HATE these things, but I do strongly dislike them.) 

And being pregnant! Goodness! I’ve popped most definitely and its hard to not let people know about it. I’m dressing down everyday. I don’t want people to know because I am so nervous since I had the miscarriage back in March, actually I’m down-right paranoid. So, I’d like to go to the doctors and have him tell me all’s well before I let family and friends know the good news. I don’t have a new pic yet, but here’s one I do have:

But gah, I’m in a mood today. Actually, I’ve been in a mood several days. Parts of my days will be good and happy and parts blow. Its these stupid hormones! I don’t remember being so emotional when I was pregnant with the boys. (maybe this means I’ll have a girl…)

I got accepted onto two new CTs. I’m now on Amanda Dykan’s and Designs by Krista’s. So look for pages and previews of their stuff. Starting now…

(made using Amanda Dykan’s kit “Pemberly.”)

I love that picture of John and Zach! I have so few of the two of them, mainly because neither will take one with the other. And that kit is great! Its really girly, so of course I had trouble with it, but I think I pulled the girly off. (though I won’t show them that page…)

Now for a new picture of my adorable Mr. Ryan Jacob:

(made using Lori Davison’s kit “Rough to the Touch”)

And lastly, a free 12 x 12 page template for you! Here’s the preview:
