In Loving Memory of Molly May Hajnal....

On Wednesday night Molly left us to go play in Heaven's backyard. David got Molly when he was at a gas station and a guy pulled up to him and asked if he wanted a dog. If not, he would just take her to the pound. So David took her home...this was about 1998-1999. I moved here in 2000 from California and she bacame part of my life too. When I was pregnant with Goose, she layed with me while I was on bed rest. When I...yes, I decided to propose to David I put the ring on her collar and asked David to marry me. Below is a picture of Molly Mae with a friend at our wedding. She was in it.

She has become Blakey's puppy recently. I am almost glad he doesn't understand. Before Blakey, she was Goose's sidekick. Here she is locked up in timeout....
Rest in peace little mama may may, life will never be the same without you. I hope you have all of the hotdogs and tennis balls that you could ever want up in Heaven. We will think of you every single day. We will miss your love and our days will be empty without being able to see your little wiggle.
Probably the saddest thing of all is how much Carrots will miss his mama...thats what we call her. People can understand the loss of a pet and most likely get over it. What happens to the furry bestfriend who has lost the love of his life? How do you explain to him that no matter how long he waits, she wont come back to him.

Our hearts are filled with loss and sadness right now.....Molly we will miss you!!!!

A little weekend mojo...

Lately it seems that I can only get stuff done on the weekends. This weekend was no different. The weather was nicer that it sure has been so I was able to open the garage and play while the boys ran off some energy. Since I..uhhh emmm...WE are on a severe money restriction I am using more stuff that I already had. So I FINALLY pulled out this stencil that I just HAD to have after last years Scrapbook Convention in Arlington. I would NEVER pay $10 for a stencil, but I saw this one demonstrated and it was just gorgeous. I am really happy with the way my cards turned out, although they are not as beautiful as the demonstration I saw. I also used buttons. I love buttons, but it seems that I always forget to use them. So today I pulled them out. I am in LOVE with the DCWV Recycled Stack. I used it with SU! kraft cardstock and the SU! In Colors Inks and cardstock...they match this stack perfectly!!! Here is the group all together with the silver stencil in the middle.
**Edited to add*** I forgot to mention I used Old Olive Ink for the tree and all of the sentiments are from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

I made the top two without embellishments so that they could be mailed a little easier. Here is a closer view...
The next two are may favs with the buttons and a spiral clip. I have bought tons of these kinds of embellishments and never use them. Shame on me!!!

This tree fits so many occasions. I used it for Sympathy, Thank You, Thinking of You, and for a Masculine Birthday. The buttons were embellished with some basic twine.

Back to laundry and chores.

I hope you all are having a great weekend!!

Taaa Daaa!!!

I got something finished!! I am sooo excited. There is a long standing joke between my boys, my nephews and my two older brothers (their uncles), they say "Hey pink panty head", or "Are you wearing your pink panties?" and then call each other sissy laa laa. It's hilarious!!! So one of my brothers has a birthday next weekend and my other brother has one next month, so they are getting the same birthday it is. I AM SOOOOO GIDDY!! IT'S PERFECT!!!

Above is the inside of the card. I am so excited!!! I can't wait until they get their cards. I hope you like them.

Just a Note.....

While cracking myself up in my last posting, I totally forgot to post Tess. Haaa Haaa!! My BFF Ami made me a notebook using her new Bind It All (BIA). She has made tons of cute things with this handy little machine that she got from Hobby Lobby.

She made this notebook by stamping Totally Tess and snipping her out. Ami placed Tess on top of a cut that she made with her Cricut using the Sweehearts cartridge. Layering everything on top of Melon Mambo card stock and topping it off with Melon Mamo ribbon. Tess totally matches my scraproom!!! Ami also used Crystal Effects to make the little stampin wheel seem more real.

Remember, Sale - A - Bration and the new Mini Occasion Catalog are both going on right now!!! Now is the time to rake in the free items. Go to my website to place your order directly and get the special offers available. Don't forget that the new Occasion Mini Catalog shows our new line of clear mounted stamps...just like Totally Tess!! Keep your peepers open, I will have a post that shows what the clear mounted stamps are all about. If you can't wait until then, just jump on over to my website at Stampin' Up!

Please contact me anytime with questions. My email is



You did WHAT?!!!!

Okay, it has taken me all day to post this story. I will probably wished I hadn't once I do.

Saying that I LOVE my Gypsy has been taken to an UNBELIEVABLE higher level now. Okay so I was about to take a lengthy potty break (WARNING!! Sorry, if you get offended of stuff like this turn away now, It does not get any prettier!!) Since I new it would be a few minutes and my SU! Success has not arrived yet, I decided to take my Gypsy with me. So I am sitting there ticking way when the stylus fell out of my hand!!! GASP!!! WTF?!!! Did I just....YEP. I DID!!! It dropped onto my lap. My dumb butt (severly sensored) looked down and instead of just looking to see it there and picking it up decided to move my legs to pray to god that it fell onto the floor. It was just then that I heard the noise....OH CRAP!!!! (sensored once again). It had fallen into the toilet!!!!! So what the heck is a girl to do? Flush the sucker!!! It's like a nightmare that has haunted me all day long. Maybe this has happened before?? Is this why Cricut sells them in a set of 3?? I just keep replaying the whole thing in my head. I just can't believe that happened.

For those who own Gypsy's, you are pretty aware of the message boards. They have a topic that says "Tell us where you take your Gypsy, and about the reactions you get with it" Could you just imagine if I put it there? Haaaa Haaaa! I am sorry to say that I usually love humor like this, and have to admit that it is pretty stinking funny!! Ooooh poor choice of words.....sorry but funny!!!

I told my sister Pam who said OMG, you have to post this as she died laughing. Then I spoke to my friend Ann, she said I should too. Then I called Sherrie, in typical Sherrie style with a bunch of friends while I was telling her the story, she just kept saying that is sooo funny!!! Are you kidding me? S*Up!!! I am dying!!! I totally have to pee now!!! Ahhhh Haaaa Haaaa!!! I could hear her friends in the back ground saying "What?" "What is it?" So she said...wait, I will tell you in a minute. OMG!!!! Now, I am usually one who LOVES this kind of stuff, it's different when it actually happens to you. I am a little embarrassed....a little...but I still think it is pretty funny. I can't wait to tell Ami....she is going to die!!!

I hope the New Year is treating you all well. I am starting my New Year on Monday as I just practiced pretending this week. I will hit the gym full blast on Monday along with a new class, I only have 5 to go before graduation!!!!! Woo Hooo!!!

Sherrie's album is all done!!

I just wanted to post that the album is posted in my SCS Gallery found HERE. I won't bore you all with a long post but if you have any questions, just email me at and I will be happy to answer them.

Please let me know what you think of it. I do have to tell you something that our other sister Pam pointed out. My sister does not have the boo-boo's you see in the pics. She totally SWEARS by the Victoria Secrets Water Bra!!!

I just got back from seeing the album off with Kaily at the airport. It took her all of 5 seconds to admire my countless hours of back breaking work that I did on that album. This is one reason I don't do a lot of albums for gifts, unless they are requested. No one really understands how much work is put into these things. I know that my sister Sherrie will, only because she knows how much work I put into them.

I hope you all are having a wonderful New wonderful vacation is almost over. But I got a lot of things marked off of my "To Do" list.

Big Hugs,

All Finished!!!

I am all done!!!! Tomorrow night I will put all of the pics on a slide viewer or something...maybe a link to my SCS so that you all can see the full pics. For now, only pieces of the final pages.

Some stamping and embossing, although it's hard to see in this pic. Also, to the left you will notice a Cuttlebug Embossing folder. I call it a tool box pattern, but Ami has said Billet...and I would trust her knowledge over mine.

Some green, bling, and patterned paper...

Dont't forget the journaling. I also used my Cricut, I'll explain more tomorrow on this one.

More cutting on the Cricut. I also got into my long loved but never touched stash of Thickers. My favorite summer embellishment of last seasons Mini Occasions "Just Beachy" stamped in Craft Whisper White. I love Craft Whisper White, it gives a nice white, thick painted look.

Okay all that is it for now. I just wanted to post a little more for everyone to see.



Posting some progress....

I am almost done with the album. Tomorrow morning I will take the album to the airport to meet Kaily on her layover. I have had a hard time deciding to let her see it first, but I think I will. I will do a post later when it is done with pages, for now I just wanted to let you in on the little mess I have going on..heee heee
We'll call this one "To the left of the Cricut"'''

And this one we'll call "To the right of the Cricut"....

I know the pictures aren't the clearest, kinda good. I don't want Sherrie to try and scope it out too much.

Chow for now, off to finish.
