Icebergs or Blue Water?

My mom the amazing woman that she is has a goal. Her goal is to travel to all the 50 states. This something she has been working on for years....since dad has passed away...I am her new travel buddy. This year we were going to go to Mexico, the flight cost was out of this world for the time we wanted to go, so we didn't go. Then we decided we would go to Hawaii next Christmas. Well then while I was looking at the Scrap Map, I saw an Alaskan Cruise with Scrapbook Designer Teresa Collins (whom I love). I emailed that to my mom. I get a phone call from her and I all she says to me is ICE BERGS or BLUE WATER? I was confused. Then it hit me, she was asking me what I wanted to do and I had to decide by Monday! I know this is a dream of her to go to Alaska and she has already been to Hawaii. I decided today to go on the Cruise. I know we will have an awesome time together. I am so thankful to be able to spend time with my mom on an amazing trip and to share our passion for scrappin'! I am blessed!

Wall Art

So I have never been really good at getting a level and a ruler and making sure my pictures on the wall are straight...never been my thing... However, I love this work of art I did. I used 12x12 wood pieces and painted the edges. I cut pattern scrapbook paper down 1/4 in on all sides and with a strong glue, glued the paper on the wood. I did not put any protection over the paper because I change the colors in my living room a lot. This is such a fun and creative way to decorate, and super easy too!

The Squeaker

I love when my dog gets his squeaker going in his toy! It just makes me laugh how fast he can squeak it. I know he is having a ball with it! Once the squeaker is out, the toy is done...He won't touch it anymore. I love my dog!

Wow, it's been so long since I have been to this site to even blog about anything. I am not sure if I even know how to really be a good blogger. My goal for this year is to create a better blog, to put my creations on my blog, to build a website and to be a lot less stressed! Looking forward to 2010!
