I LooooVe Electricity!!

Never knew just how much you would miss something till it was gone......FOR THREE DAYS IT WAS GONE.....ice, rain, snow.....just miserable.....but then again this is Iowa we are talking about! We got just too much ice for those poor utility poles to handle and they just snapped off.....Yes I am talking the HUGE utility poles.....broke like toothpicks.....over 5000 of em......all I can say is I LOVE POWER!!! 3 days and three kids and 5 family members in one house huddled around a tv and a corn burner and one light.....and no hot water.....makes for a very very long event!! But we did survive, the power is back and we are bearing down for yet another bout of rain, ice, and snow! when will this end?? I WANT SPRING!! Including justa couple of pics I took from inside the porch....did not want my baby Rebel to get wet!!!
So creating was on the back burner for a few days but since then I have been going full speed ahead and havin a blast! I will be posting some new creatings starting tomorrow!!! I am soo excited to share!

I NeeD more hours in the day.....

to do daily housework....

to play with my children....

to have to myself.....

Ever get that feeling that you are sinking down into the hole of housework? Maybe it's cuz it is just soo darn cold outside that I wanna scrap and snuggle and watch movies and NOT do anything remotely close to cleaning. Maybe the warm temps next week will spark a cleaning frenzy in me.....oooh yeah.....and if any of you have the cell phone number to the cleaning fairy, let me know and I will give her a ring!

Lots and lots going on in the scrappy world tho that make me oooh sooo happy!! New stuff arriving at stores from CHA, being able to create wonderful layouts with all the goodies from my DT spots at The Scrapbook Site, Imagine, Create, Scrap, and ScrapnCircle! I am just having waaay too much fun right now with all this! Will post some layouts for you to peruse...and go check out the above sites for some more FANTASTIC INSPIRATIONS!!

Making a Creative Manifesto

I was soo incrediblely inspired by Ali's newsletter for making a creative manifesto for youself, that I just dove in head first and looooved every inspiring moment of it. Who woulda thunk I could find such relevance in definitons???? I decided to call my manifesto a TesTaMent instead of the traditional manifesto.....I know not why but it fits!! Here is my Testament!!!

My TesTaMeNT


I have found my calling in LIFE.......Creating in hopes of INSPIRING!

I want to help others realize their true POTENTIAL for creative success.

Creativity for me is a NATURAL PROCESS...going with what works for me DOES work for me!

Embrace yourself and your creative blessings.

enjoy the process...revel in the results.

Share enthusiasm for your passion and you will SHINE!!
