My Very Own Blinkie...

Woo Hoo. My cyber friend, Calia, totally rocks. She is so talented on so many levels. Calia, scraps, makes cards, does awesome altered items and now she does blinkies. I met Calia through a scrapping forum, our love for scrapbooking connected us as cyber scrappy friends, she's innovative and an out of the box thinker. She has the most adorable little ones which she displays proudly on her she just loves her hubby to pieces. Calia is an awesome person!

Optimism meets Serendipity!

Optimism....Optimism is an outlook on life such that one maintains a view of the world as a positive place. A general disposition to expect the best in all things.
Serendipity...Serendipity is the effect by which one accidentally discovers something fortunate, especially while looking for something else entirely.

I'm the optimistic one and serendipity is one of my all time favorite words. This is definitely one of those moments when my outlook on life, Optimism collided with my perfect word..Serendipity. I looked at my bundle of joy and knew instantly that I had unexpectedly fallen into an abyss of perfect moments of happiness, laughter, hope, and pure joy! This moment, this baby, was and is my optimistic-serendipity. A lifetime of hopeful dreams whisked in my mind. Before the baby had even taken shape in my belly, I remember the elation of the news. I am a Mommy. I knew life was going to be great, that optimistic inner eye envisioned a perfect family adventure with this little guy.
The first thing I did when I got home was look up my favorite quote by Erma Bombeck, I printed it out and kept in posted on my desk at home and work. I tweaked her quote to be in the present tense, but here is the jist of it...Erma Bombeck says, "Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I will cherish every moment and realize that the wonderment growing inside me is the only chance in life I have to assist God in a miracle." If that isn't optimism swirling around with serendipity, than I don't know what it is.

Check out Baby Makin(g) Machine for some funny post and a cool Couture Baby Bag Giveaway!

Happy St. Patricks Day!

Top o' the morning to you all! Hope you are having a wonderfully GREEN day today. The lucky ones are those that remember to hug their kids, kiss their hubbies off to work, and call their Mom & Dad at least once a week. Don't forget that you make your own luck and luck is more than a financial windfall.
Enjoy your St. Patty's Day...drink green beer!

As some of you know, I ventured into creating KITS and sponsored a particular site for the months of January, February and March. It has been quite the venture indeed. The ladies over at this scrapping forum have completly ROCKED OUT their creations using my kits.

If you are interested in purchasing a KIT, please send me an email and I will send you the information.
I am also holding a raffle for the March Kit, Leprechaun Loot.
Here is what you must do...
