No internet, no electricity and NO MONEY

I am gonna have to take an even LONGER break from designing as I currently have no internet at home. Not only that, we need the circuit boxes rewired in our house as well as two rooms...YUCHHHY...needless to say I do not believe that I will be able to design for at least a month or so. Any fans I have look for my new items in time for Thanksgiving or Christmas

DSP Tues 3/27 Blog Prompt

Is the name you have now the same name that's on your birth certificate? If not, what's changed?


If you could change your name (first or middle, no last names for safety please!), what would it be?
I actually like my first and my middle. When I was a kid there were so many Tiffany's that I hated it but now I dont

Why were you named what you were? (Is there a story behind it? Who specifically was responsible for naming you?)
My mother named me something girly because she wanted a girly girl...and I am so not that
Are there any names you really hate or love? What are they and why?

I love my youngest daughter's name. An online friend of mine had a child about a year older than mine and named her Zaniyah. When I saw it I thought it was the prettiest name. However my friend, Ava, pronounces her daughter's Za NIY ah with a long I and I pronounce my daughter's Za NEE yah so it looks the same but sounds different

More Faithbooking

I created my B faithbooking layout. I really love the way it turned out. This song reminds me of the altar call. Every time I hear it reminds me of the day I was made whole.
From My layouts
Broken Hearted
Kit: My Sunshine
Song Font: Adorable
Title Font: The King & Queen font
Journaling Font: Spirit

Journaling reads: Brokenhearted is exactly what I was before KNEW Jesus Christ. I mean I knew who He was but I did not know him in a personal way until November of 1994. During a revival held at Bethlehem Temple Apostolic Church, I prayed the sinners prayer and accepted Him into my heart.
Baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost I began a new life. My broken parts are being mended by His grace and mercy. Every day I thank Him for all the blessings He has bestowed on me.

Come ye broken hearted
Come ye weary soul
There is healing water
That can make you whole
That can make you whole

Come bring tears of sorrow
Come bring years of Pain
There is healing water
That can make you whole
That can make you whole

And it flows from the veins
Of Jesus my Savior
My healer and redeemer
A lover so true
It has power to heal
All our sin sick diseases
So come to the throne
Your healing is here
That can, That can
That can make you whole

Your healing is here
Forgiveness is here
Salvation is here
Acceptance is here
Deliverance is here
His presence is here
His Mercy is here
His power is here
Joy is here
Grace is here
Love is here
That can make you whole
That can make you whole

Faithbooking Challenge #2

I am always so behind but here is the second sketch in the Faithbooking Challenge. I am going to scrap this one soon. I haven't done any scrapping in so long. My eldest daughter left yesterday for Orlando, FL. Her high school cheer squad is competing in the UCA Cheer Nationals. I am a bit sad I was unable to go with her but give her and the other Tigers GRROWWL for luck! If you are following our faithbooking challenge you can grab the template from here.

Where is the sunshine?

If you have taken a look at my weather pixie at top of my blog, you will see that there has been very little sunshine in my neck of the woods. So I decided to create my own!

kit can be purchased here or here

I can't believe my eldest daughter is turning SIXTEEN! My prissy princess is quite the young lady! And in honor of her upcoming birthday, I am working on a new kit called Pretty Princess. In lovely shades of pink (what else color would a princess kit be??) and elements of gold...a gold charm bracelet with delicate charms including a high heel shoe, crown, and more!

Also watch out for my upcoming Valentine Brag Book Templates and my Valentine Splendor kit...

Tues 1/9 Blog Prompt

Two for Tuesday:

Do you usually arrive on time or late?
Do you get annoyed when other people arrive late or you really don’t care?

I admit I am usually running late. I try to adjust for that by setting my clocks ahead 15 minutes but dh & kiddos go around resetting them so I can never tell if the time is right. I am always forgetting something and having to go back in the house at least twice. I am usually patient for people who are late simply because I know that in my case it is never intentional.

Faithbooking Challenge

I am sponsoring a faithbooking challenge at the Digital Simple Scrapbooks Yahoo Groups.

One option is the Alphabet faithbook. I'll have an Alphabet sketch/template that you can use, and the goal is to hit you with a new one about every two weeks so that we can get through all the letters of the alphabet in a year. IF you'd rather not use the template, but have your own interpretation of the letter (or a different word beginning with the letter...) again...this is YOUR book. Don't worry about whether you are doing what or how I want you to do or not. I am just giving you suggestions and ideas...YOU run with it!

Here is the link to template for the letter A.

There is a PSD format as well as a PSP format. They are exactly the same so only download one.

Mon 1/8 Blog Prompt

Mon 1/8 Blog Prompt

Describe a time when you have benefitted from the kindness of a stranger.

Christmas 97
I took my cousin to Cincinnati from Youngstown to pick up her two kids the day before Christmas Eve. It was her, me and my 4 kids and then her two kids. The oldest child was 6. On our way back to Youngstown, the alternator died and the car stalled. We had very little money, no cell, no triple AAA. We sat on side of road for about an hour in light snowfall all teh while it was getting dark. We weren't near enough to any exit to walk to. Finally a state trooper stopped and saw we needed help. He drove about thirty miles up the road to Truck Stop and got some truckers to tow the car (FREE) , give us all a ride, they fed us, and let us make all calls we needed to get home. They even took a collection and gave us money to buy the kids Christmas gifts. I said I would never say a bad word about truckers since that day!

I'm a day behind

But my resolutions is to be more organized. I have a new planner that I sync with my google calender to keep me from forgetting important dates and appointments.

All of my other resolutions hinge off of this main one. To continue my weekly aquaerobics classes 3x a week. To give up Pepsi....oh the horror...ok maybe to cut down on my pepsi......

spend more FUN time with my family. I want to enjoy them not constantly be nagging and yelling...I am tired of being the contentious wife mentioned in Proverbs......

Pray that the Lord continues to bless and keep my family and friends but online and irl.
