I am here!!

I am so sorry to be MIA for so long! I really have no excuse, except for life has a way of taking hold and changing things around! My husband got laid off a couple of weeks ago, which is a way of life in the construction/carpentry business this time of year, but knowing it is coming every year doesn't make it any better! So having him home has been a real adjustment, to say the least. He is keeping busy, though...It has also been VERY cold..a few mornings this week I have gotten up to -20 degree F temperatures. Given the location of my computer on the enclosed porch, I haven't wanted to do much online ANYTHING due to the freezing of my feet! Our porch can handle cold temps, but not quite that cold! So those are my "excuses" if you will...life took over...I will try to do better in the future! If I could get my husband started on some kind of project, maybe then I could sneak away and do some creating of my own! Glad to be back, keri

Okay, two for two. This layout is one of my all time favorites. The photo is my older brother, my son, and my niece, who is now 18 months old. I keep this photo by my computer!

Page of the Day...

I got to thinking yesterday, my scrapbook albums sit there looking all pretty, and It has been so long since I looked at many of them. I spent over an hour just sitting and looking at all my creations after that. It kinda makes me feel sick in the stomach, cause A.) I am SO BEHIND and B.) My baby is not a baby anymore! Seeing his innocent little face from 5 years ago, still a little tow head with chubby little baby cheeks made me so sad! Where did the time go? So I am going to try to make a point to share more layouts. I would like so say there would be one a day, but that is pushing it, so I will just leave it at a few a week. Chances are I will not remember where any of the products came from that I used, but maybe someone would like to see them!!
Further proof of my DS's non-baby status! It was all downhill from here! Now he is hunting, getting guns at Christmas presents, and thinks his mom is a pain in his rear half the time. TFL!
