Putting things Back Together Again

It took a few months to get things all situated with the house after the flood. But we did get back in before the Holidays, and finally had furniture to sit on etc. by Christmas so that was a bonus.

That time of year is so busy and dealing with the house and working just made things extra crazy.

But of course there is always a bright side. We have beautiful new floors that I am totally in love with. I didn't think we would find anything I loved as much as the floors we put in originally.

Crafting on the go!

So a few days ago, I came home to a flood in our house. Apparently the water district had been out and when they turned the water back on it caused my neighbors pipe to burst. So now my townhouse is loaded with dehumidifiers. We just could not take the heat and the odor so we had to pack up and move to a hotel for at least a few days as they test and come up with the repair plan.
Last year I purchased this little art tray from H-Mart and I used it a few times. Well it really came in handy when packing a few things so I can get some creative time in at the hotel room.

Creative Memories is BACK

If you have been a long time scrapbooker or crafter like I have. I am sure you have a Creative Memory tool or two in your stash of goodies. When they decided to close up shot. Scrappers across the nation and world were sadden with grief. While preparing for my weekend crop last week, I discovered something. Something Amazing! CREATIVE MEMORIES is back! That's right! They have opened up shop and are slowly bringing back some of our favorite items. I just signed up to be an Adviser (Consultants are a thing of the past) and I am so excited! (link to my page here)

Placing my first order for a new paper trimmer and corner rounder and I can't wait to receive my items. 

Hugs and Happy Scrapping to You!

Son's Homemade Smashbook

As much as I love to Smash I think I enjoy creating my own Smashbooks out of Notebooks or Books even more. It adds a unquieness to the book that I love and little more creative freedom.

I thought is was important that in a book dedicated to my son that his name get its own page.
Nasser has one of the most special names. His Dad and I want to really make it strong and reprisent his  Heritage.

URIAS is his Hebrew Name his family are descendants from Ethiopian (black) Jews.
Nasser is Arabic to represent the union between his Grandparents as his Grandfather is Muslim.
The love of his grandparents goes beyond religion and they found a way to find peace in there love, something Muslims and Jews have been working on for thousands of years.

Recollection Alpha Stickers, Washi Tape, Brad
Magic Scraps Bits
Ranker Tim Holtz for the black dots.

There is a page before this I made of his Dad (now deceased) holding him. It was at the hospital when he was born. 

This is me and his big sister holding him when he came home. He was such a love bug!

His first professional photo! They set an appointment for these before you leave those hospital. I always thought they did them there, but nope they come to your house. It was kind of trick to get this shot.
