What a wonderful life.

HERE Is my final entry for the THAT DESIGN TEAM competition. I have mixed feelings on this. Im sad it is over cuz I had so much fun. ALot of rockin talented ladies over there. BUT Im kinda glad it is over cuz it will be that much closer to finding out who will get the 2 positions. I know whomever gets picked will have earned it because EVERYONE has been so awesome!

I wanna shout out today to my mom HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!!!! I won't say how old she is but she looks amazing for her age (of course) she is a wonderful beautiful talented lady. She is a true artist she does oil painting and makes jewelry and whatever artsy thing that comes along she likes, she instilled my crafty self with lots of artsy humor.
Hope you have a great day and wish I was there mom.

Also one of my friends over at the safe.. ELISE Hope you are havin a happy birthday today. I sang to you in teh thread over there lolol hope your ears recover. Hope you ahve a happy day my friend. (hugs)

I still feel horrible. I look like a pirate.. with jack o lantern teeth. Im up cuz the phone rang and woke me up. That is ok I need to get up anyway I have a dr appt soon.. some people I tell you. I dunno why they have to be so pathetic and petty. I pity them and feel really sorry for them. Their life must be a miserable pit of hell is all I can figure. I need to pray for them more. Dog layin on a nail? ....yeah pretty pathetic.

I wanna say thank you to all of those who have been frequenting my blog. You guys offer me such encouragement and I love your sweet comments. Thank you so much. I started this with help from my dear good freind Jeanne. HI JEANNE. Who I have lovingly called blog natzi haha! But also as a way for my family and friends to get to see Bella's newest photos. It is alot easier than sending out 500 emails. Saves alot of time too. It can also serve as a cool resume. I have gotten alot of wonderful opportunities from companies from this here little blog. Thanks for helping me make my dreams come true.

I sure hope all of you will stick around even after the dt competition is over at STM. We have alot of fun especially at the chats. I have had alot of people ask me about scrapping and what to do to improve. It is hard to say but I will tell you what I did. I found me someone and surrounded myself with talented positive awesome CHRISTIAN people who would help me and give me constructive criticism OUT OF LOVE to help me better my skills. I have a group that If I want my stuff critiqued and what can I do to improve myself I contact them each time. NOT just with scrapping with every day things too. Especially parenting. So that is my best advice. ask for tips and dont be to hasty to judge. Listen and dont take it personally. BUT MOST OF ALL
HAVE FUN. dont let the devil rain on your parade. You can be sick but still be happy, you can be mad but still have joy, you can have a rotten day but still see sunshine... dont look at yesterdays mistakes as failures Look at them as steps to help improve yourself for tomorrow.

with that Im gonna go crawl back to bed and I hope you have a wonderful day today. keep smiling and scrapping

Since I feel so yucky my hubby is being sweet and bringing me my favorite thing ... Tijuana Flats.. I just love him so much HE is such a good husband.

Good luck with the DT over at STM! I know you will be getting one of those positions. They would be nuts not to grab you.

Hey for the people that call her on the phone and give her stuff... go find a new number to dial.. Leave dear sweet Nancy ALONE! Dont you have something better to do like try to run your business? Here is a good saying "Don't call us we'll call you."

I am always here for you Nancy! Glad I could help you with your blog way back when.

Hey, my dear friend!!! I agree with Jeanne. Those that make nasty comments must be a very miserable lot! And need to pick up a bible or check out a good pastor's sermon and need to start looking in their own life for what makes them such a miserable, bitter person. Nancy, I admire you so much because you can laugh at yourself, even when you are so ill, and you have only good things to say to encourage people! You rock girlfriend!!!

Nancy, Good Luck with the DT position. They would be crazy not to have you on their team. You are hard working, have a great attitude and your work is amazing.
YOu have so much good happening.
