Taking it one day at a time

Well here is my latest update.....they seem far and few between these days, but if I am to be honest, I have been just plain LAZY, and to be honest I am kinda enjoying it. In my belly grows the last addition to my family and I am doing my best to let my body do what it needs to do, without wearing it out. I have always been a go getter and i've never really slowed down for either of my other pregnancy's I was to busy renovating, working and trying to keep up with the day to day. This time though my body is having none of it. There is not a day that goes by that I don't need a nap, I am giving in to my cravings of coconut smoothies, fruit and sour gummies. My house is a disaster, my living room is an office,  play room, craft room and my front entrance, it is crazy!!

However........this to shall pass! I am finding with each day I have a bit more energy, my morning sickness is gone and although things are a bit messy, my kids don't care as long as their bellies are full and mommy makes time to play lego.

I had my first appointment with the midwife and it was so wonderful to hear the heart beat (165 a minute ) and be reassured that everything is doing well.

Tonight I am headed off to my girlfriends birthday so I whipped up a little card with some  Jillibean soup stash and Core'dinations, here it is!!

I am also getting excited about teaching down in Parksville at Scrapbookin Adventures. Here are a couple more sneaky peaky's!

If you are anywhere in the area, this is gonna be a great class with the most product I have ever gotten to work with. It is also loaded with great techniques. As a bonus after the class there will be more examples here on the blog with what you can do with the left overs.
Hope to see some of you there!!

Soooooo long

Hello friends, well that was a far long sabbatical that I intended!! I have literally been recovering my energies after one of the nastiest flu's I have ever had, plus this pregnancy has knocked me clean off my feet at night. It has been a double whammy!! I am starting to get my energy back now, and have finally headed back to my scrappy space. To get my mojo going I decided to participate in the Canadian Scrapbooker, Sketchy Challenge. This is the sketch that we have to work with.

and here is the layout I put together

I used 2 photos instead of 3 and tried to use as many elements from the blanket as I could, I used pattern papers from Echo park and Jillibean soup that are similar to what is in the blanket, the adorable little duck is actually scanned from the fabric that I used and then I printed him onto Core'dinations Cardstock

The textured buttons are from My little bit of whimsy.
I love this little blanket and I can't wait to have someone to put to bed with it!!

Bumpy Start

Well Happy New Year everyone, Sorry that I am so late with my start, but New Years day my family was struck with one of the worst flu's I can remember ever having. If that was not excuse enough, when I woke of from my fever stupor, my computer simply would not turn on, uh oh..........for the cherry on top my tech guy is out of town for another two days :0  So seeing as today is the first day that I am feeling human, I am attempting to blog from my husbands old lap top, this thing is really busted up so please forgive me, I will be having technical difficulties for the next week or so while I get things up and running again.

In the mean time I wanted to share my latest with you, I will be teaching a class down in Parksville this Febuary at Scrapbookin Adventures. This class features Jillibean soups brand new hearty barley collection and some gorgeous new Core'dinations colors too!!
