Chicken leg

Molly went back for her final suregry, to remove the pins, on Monday. Poor thing had to get her leg shaved, and now it looks like a giant drumstick with hot pink stiches. Funny, but while I was waiting for the nurse to bring her out, I felt like crying. Maybe it's because I could hear her whining. Or because I had been waiting there for over an hour. Perhaps it's just sleep deprivation. Or maybe it was the $750 bucks I had just shelled out...

Hooray!!! I'm Queen Bee Today!

I got the call this afternoon - I made the design team! I was speechless! I'm still in shock. I'm very greatful that the kids were quiet and the dog wasn't barking when I got the call, but I ran and hid myself in the laundry room, just in case. I'll be at the new store next weekend for the Grand Opening and hosting a Make n' Take. I'll post more details later, and maybe I'll even figure out how to add a live link (hint, hint, Charlotte!)

Queen for a Day

Here are the pieces I created for a template challenge for Stampers' Sampler. Originally, I wasn't even going to enter this challenge. The crown template didn't scream my style, but a few days later the idea for "Queen of the Road" came to me, and a theme was born. I created a book to house them, with envelopes that sort of pop up and fan out when it's opened, but I haven't finished the cover yet and I just wanted to get these sent off, so maybe I'll fill the book with something else. Funny, I always think I'll get so much more done then I do. Thanks to all those who visited MDW while the voting was going on. The new location opens tomorrow, and I can't wait to see the (larger!) store.

mini album at MDW

I took Madeline with me today to see my entry at My Daughter's Wish. I thought she;d be excited to see her picture in a store. She was more excited to see pictures of Molly and Phoebe! Go figure...

They only have the mini albums on display for voting. You can see pictures of mine below. It's the Day in the Life of My Heart piece (#11). They will only be on display until Sept. 8. There are some pretty fabulous books there! So many talented scrappers! They are having a big 20% off everything in the store sale, so it's a great time to stop by!
