A Personal Post.....and a winner...and some fun give-aways to tell you about...

An update on my life......
Before I start......I wanted to let you know that Robyn (My Pink Stamper) has some great give-a-ways today on her Blog. Go HERE to check them out :)

Missing crafting.....trying when I can....mostly stress shopping late into the night :)

Two sick parents....praying, stressful, making the days blend together...worrying about the future....

Thankful for a husband and two children that pitched in and allowed me to spend a week away the house for CHA....they are the BEST! I am now Copic Intermediate Certified...that was a fun day :)

Welcoming the new My Pink Stamper Designer's to the team and welcoming back the one's that are returning......excited to get back to work....

Thankful for all the friends in my life that are always there for me.....

Sad that summer is coming to and end and I didn't even realize it was summer yet....feeling bad that I didn't do anything with my kids....but then again they are at the age that they don't need so much except to know I am there for them and of course food :)

Alexandria started driving now too.....frightening having two teenagers driving, not having very much patience this time around.....but also thankful that Casey has his license, couldn't do my life right now without his help driving and Alexandria's help doing anything I ask of her......

Hoping I will be able to pull off leaving for Creative Escape in a few weeks....Heck, Traci and I made spa appointments yesterday--we HAVE to go!!! Wishing Patty could come with us...... 

That just about sums it up....sadly, I don't even know what day it is lately most of the time. Crafting and posts will come....when I don't know, but they will come.....

I will leave you with two things--a winner and Alexandria's new (shocked me) hair color as of two days ago.....brown, RED!!! To think I never even highlighted my hair until I was over 40, oh boy!

 And....the winner of the BBTB2 Blog Hop give-a-away I had on Monday is.........

Congratulations Pat N. you are the WINNER!
Please email me at with your information so that I can send your prize!


  1. I love the color of Alexandria's hair! I know they can come in with some doozies, but it is very conservative to those I have seen come in to my library at school. Be thankful that piercing and tats were not on the agenda! Not looking forward to my own reaching the age of exploration though! Smile...she is still a beautiful girl.

  2. Congrats to Pat N.
    Maria Your daughter is adorable. Hair color looks great on her I will keep you in my prays for your parents.
