Blog Hiatus

I've decided I'm going to take a little blog hiatus. I feel like I'm spending too much time on the computer and not enough time taking care of my house. I'll post photos occasionally but that's all for awhile. Not sure when I'll be back.
I'll leave you with this little cutie:

I have 3 blog readers. Or, my give-away goodness is not enticing enough. Or, you like a good give-away but you don't want to share the love.


Heather and Emily, you guys are gonna get something AMAZING. I don't know what it is yet, but it will be AMAZING.

My first ever Give Away!

I just came across this fun give-away game on 2 of my friends' blogs so I thought I'd share the love!
Here is the deal: The first five people to comment on this post will get something made by me.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It'll be done this year.
4- You have no clue what it's going to be. It's my choice. It could be scrapbook related. Could be some kind of home decor. Who knows? I might go crazy and bake or sew or something.
5- I reserve the right to do something extremely creative.

The catch? You must re-post this on your own blog and offer the same deal to 5 of your own lucky blog readers. So, the first 5 people to leave a comment telling me they are in will win a homemade gift by me! When you get your gift, be sure to post a picture on your blog! Oh, if you don't have a blog, just do it on Facebook.

Let the games begin!

Birthday Girl

Yesterday I turned 37...holy cow, how did I get that old? I remember when I was a teenager, even newly married thinking that 37 was SO OLD. Some of my Young Women's leaders were this age (and younger) and they were so mature. I do not feel this way. I still view myself as 28. Maybe because that was when I had my first baby and started to feel like a mature, responsible adult. But, I now find myself 9 years older than my internal age! Time goes by seems the older I am, the faster it goes.
So, in light of time going by so quickly, I intend to make the most of it! I chose a word to live by for 2009. That word is "CLARIFY". I love the synonyms for clarify: analyze, break down, clear up, define, delineate, draw a picture, formulate, illuminate, illustrate, make perfectly clear, make plain, resolve, settle, shed light on, simplify, straighten out, throw light on. Can you see where I'm going here? I really want to simplify my life, throw light on the best things, straighten out my home and my muddled brain. I intend to make perfectly clear what my goals and my plans are and actually follow through with them. And, since my children's lives are also passing in front of my eyes at warp speed, LIVE IN THE MOMENT.

That's my plan and I'm stickin' to it!

I did have a really great birthday shared with my family and great friends. Thanks for making my day special!
