Times are not always sunshine

but they will get better. Most of the people that know me already know that my husband told me recently that he never loved me and that he wants a divorce. We have been married for almost 21 years. I gave him my whole heart and he broke mine. He continues to hurt me, but I will overcome this and I will survive. I deserve more than this and if this is all he has to give then I'm much better off without him...his loses not me. I will not put him down. I will just walk away and make something new and better of my life. If you would please say prayers for me that I continue to stand strong, hold my head up high, and to know that there is something better waiting for me out there. I will overcome this and I will be stronger from this!!! I have a wonderful family and awesome friends that are helping me get though this and I thank each one of you for being there and listening to me. You're whats helping get through this.

From this I have decided to take that leap and become a professional photographer. I plan to enroll in college when I move back to Tulsa in photography and then open my own business after I finish school. I know this will be hard, but I'm strong and I will do this for myself. I'm hoping to move this summer after my daughter Jessie graduates from high school. She is finishing up a year early and I'm very proud of her. I'm very sad to say that my youngest daughter Kimi has decided to say with her father. I will miss her very much, but will honor her wishes. It's so hard for a mother (when I did not want this) to say good bye and it will probably be the hardest thing I've had to do in my life yet. I love her very much and have told her that she is always welcome to come see me.

It time for snow...

We are in the months of snow, snow, snow. Hayleigh loves the snow this year! Last year she did not want anything to do with it! I just loved her recent snow pictures, so I had to do a LO with the photos from the clear album I just finished. I rarely use purple on my LOs...but her snowsuit this year is purple. I really like the way it turned out using purple as a snow page. The photo under "snow" is a black & white printed on photo transparency paper.

Happy New Years!!!

I hope everyone had a Happy New Years. We sat at home and watched the grand baby this year. We did manage to stay awake though for the new year to come in.

I've got mail...DT projects that is! I've been busy getting project finished and loaded.
My first projects are for Memories From The Attic. I had a great kit to work with, pattern paper from Dream Street and Making Memories (Noteworthy). The embellishments are from Making Memories (Noteworth) stickers, Fancy Pants (flower and heart pins), stamp from Autumn Leaves, and a cute clear album from Moonlight Oil.

The pictures in the album are from our first good snowfall here in December. I hope to fill it up with plenty of snow pictures this season. The LO is of Hayleigh this summer in the town square here in Medina. It's hard to believe she is already 2.

The next DT projects are for Freckle Friends. I loved this kit. All the goodies are from KI. The kit came with Pop Culture pattern paper, softies, ribbons, taglines, and many more neat supplies. Here's what I came up with...

That's not it. I also got my kit from Scrap-Tastic, where I'm Guest Designer for January. Becky sent me some cute product from Fancy Pants. I got pattern paper, matching cardstock, botanical tags and title from Fancy Pants, overlay from hambly, and ric rac ribbon. Here's what I created...

I day dream of Cancun!
