Loving my life!!!

Hello scrappers,

Did I mention yet that I love my life??? I am so happy to be home for my family and spend all the extra time with my son. I didn't waist time with voluntering. I was elected Secretary for the St George Elementary School PSSC last night. I think it's going to be good being involved!!! I am also a member of the SGES Home & School. I realized I had made the right decision to close my store when my son told me last week: "Maman, I am glad you are not working in your store anymore". Now how cute is that!!! It brought tears to my eyes. I love my life & my family!!!

So can you believe that I actually went to an All Day Crop Saturday to scrapbook. WOW!!! Did that ever feel good!!! I got lots done...7 layouts!!! Can't get any better than that...lots of laughter & lots of yummy food!!! I am looking foward to the next one. Here are the layouts I got done. Hope you enjoy!!!

That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by.

Scrapbooking Again!!!!

Hello scrappers,

Wow!!! Does it ever feel good to have my scrapbook room to myself again. The past few weeks, I have been working at re-organizing my scrapbook area. I bought a few new pieces of furniture that I just love for my punches and die cut machines. I went through all my supplies and organized it better...if that's even possible in my space...lol For those who know me very well, you know that I am a bit fanatic about organizing my stuff...lol I am also getting my walls painted since their were lots of holes from the slatwalls and pegboards that came off. It's pretty exciting. As soon as it's all done, I will post pictures of my new and improved scrapbook/photography room.

It's been fun to scrapbook with friends again. It seems that I was always teaching and never scrapbooking for myself anymore...does it ever feel good. I finaly got a couple of layouts done this week and I will have lots more to show you after this weekend since I am going to an All Day Crop Saturday. The last crop I have been too as a scrapbooker and not a vendor is October 2008 with Paws On Scrapbooking. Yes...that is too long!!! I will tell you all about it next week. In the mean time, hope you enjoy these 2 layouts!!!

I truly did enjoy having a scrapbook store. It's every scrapbookers dream!!!! Well it was mine anyways!!! I did it for almost 2 years and now it's time to move on to new adventures...my son going to Kindergarten. It was such a difficult decision for me to let go of my store...it has been my baby and I truly loved giving classes & inspiring people. BUT now that my son has started school, I do realize how important it is to be home for him when he comes off that bus. We have so much time to spend together now, it's great...and I don't get every morning: "Maman, do you have to go to work today". That just broke my heart everytime. He is growing up too fast and I want to make sure I don't miss out on anything!!! I am getting ready to go decorate cupcakes with his class this morning...I love my life & my family!!!

That is it for now. Thanks for stopping by.

In August, I announced that my scrapbook store was closing. It took me a few months to actually make the decision to close. I must say, it was the best decision for our family. I am very happy to be home with my son everyday when he comes home from school. He has started kindergarten this year and he just loves it. The first week was a little tuff to get used to but we are doing great now. Ethan would say the first week that he didn't like school because he was shy of the kids he didn't know. How cute is that!!!! He is now very happy to go to school. Here are a few pictures of the 1st day of school.

That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by.
