So...my goal with this blog is to not only share my scrapbooking passion and projects with you but to also share little snippets of my crazy life. Raising 4 kids, ages 16, 13, 12 and 10, is not easy. There are days, a lot of days, when I am pulling my hair out, wondering if I am a good parent, wondering if I am too hard on them, wondering if I am too inconsistent with discipline, etc. Then, there are days when something sweet happens in our home, and I think to myself, "they really are good kids!" Today was one of those mornings when I was content when I left home because there was very little fussing, very little attitude and hormones floating through the air, and Candace actually packed her siblings' lunches for them...with a note for each of them.

I love being a Mom!


  1. sigh.... I know how tough it can be some times, and I know how proud you are feeling now. Such a sweet thing to do of Candace.

  2. Awww, that is awesome! It's always the little moments that really mean the most. Congrats on getting a blog!
