world of emotions

i've been MIA for quite some time. today i remembered i had a blog and ive decided to write my ups and downs and my ride on the wave of emotions. It's been 22 days since losing our precious little angel Gabriella yet the pain stills feels the same as the day she passed from my arms and into the Lord's. I began to read blogs from women who have endured this same unimaginable pain and through reading i have heard the precious Lord speaking to me and comforting me along the way. I've returned back to work and this is the beginning to my second week and keeping busy has not been a problem but the yo-yo emotions definitely have been. please forgive my rambling' missing punctuation and maybe run-on sentences. i just wanna write and not have to worry about being graded or critiqued. I hear a woman's body after giving birth takes some time to get back to the time before carrying another lil life inside of you. I have yet to experience a full nine months of pregnancy but i can say im still feeling some aches and pains which somedays lead to a stream of tears. Thank you Jesus for granting me another day to breath and experience life.

baby shower

I've been working on invitations for a upcoming baby shower and well my friend isn't into pastels so she chose brights. Wow! I had hard time functioning to this idea. I always like to look at my cards and say "I really like this" and I just couldn't do it with this card. Here a few shots of what I have and I haven't really made a final decision on the actual invite yet but well again I'm trying to grasp this whole bright color baby shower concept. I believe we're going to go with the one on the right I may tweak it a little and add some embellishment so that my mind can tell my heart that I like it.

another year

Well Feb 17 has come and gone and I'm now a year older. I've had so much happen and it saddens me that now my mom resides in Oregon. I still get teary when I write or talk about it.

Here is a pic of me, my mom and my younger sister. So needless to say I had to spend this birthday without her and it was hard cuz i can't remember the last time I had a birthday without her by my side. I had a great birthday and my wonderful sister gave me a dillards gift card, to spend at Mac cosmetics of course. Here is a pic of the cake I made for myself and only because i wanted a certain flavor and a certain filling. hmm! strawberry cake with vanilla pudding topped with strawberries as the filling. oh yeah did mention I took the first bite, and literally!!!

oh my how time has flown by

Well here we are in March already! and well I didn't even get to post all the things that went on in February such a bad blogger I promise Michelle I'll try to get better at this. I was doing so well and then time, tv got the best of me. hee hee
here are a few pics of things I worked on in Feb. We made some of those wonderful mailboxes (added some michael's $1 spot bling) for our girlfriends and then made sugar cookies dipped in chocolate and put them inside the mailboxes for a wonderful valentine's treat. Sorry again this is so late but I'll try to stay caught up.


okay i've been M I A for awhile but i was reading blogs as I always do and found this on a blog. I'm not really that good yet at this whole blog thing so i don't know how to give a link to her blog but her blog name is "listen to this" let me give credit where credit is due. I liked the way she added her signature to her posts so I thought i would try it. Oh wow! this does work thanks Katie

well I haven't learned all the blogging or texting shortcuts but I do know DH.

So on that note looks like my DH got off to a good start for 2008. He showed up with these today.

Well I'm off to make labels to mail off cards. See ya soon

New Year's card

I had a vision in my head as I sometimes do and go searching all over Austin to find what i'm looking for to make that vision onto paper. It has to be just right or I'm not happy and well this time it was a new year's day card that looked like it had bubbles in the background. I started out with this
It was a brainstorming session to make sure my card was going to turn out right and then I decided this was what I was going to go with . And so was born my New Year's day card that hasn't been mailed out yet because My family got an ugly stomach virus that somehow attacked me too!

It's still new years right so again "better late than never"so here is the final product.

I couldn't find anything that said "celebrate, 2008, or cheers" in the font or size I was looking for so I left the front of the card blank and embossed "happy new Year" on the inside with silver tinsel and I'm happy with the card. What do you think?
