Under Construction

I am trying out a new look for my blog, unfortunately I've ended up feeling like a moron because I can NOT figure out how to get the main background image to show up to finish off the look. As far as I can see I have all the right code in the right places, but apparently, blogger hates me lol.

Other than that I've been working on smoothing out all the details for our annual Fall-O-Ween Festival at TSG, and setting up our Passionately Pink for the Cure Party on the 18th of October. It really is a great cause so stop on by if you get the chance.

As part of our Fall-O-Ween Festival we will be sponsoring a blog stroll and I will post the blog addys here for those that are participating sometime next week.

Hope you all are having a better weekend than me :)

Creative Team Call!

If you would like to see my designs please browse through my store HERE.

OK, so I thought I'd give the whole creative team thing another try :) I really need to be more dilligent in my advertising and a creative team seems to be a good way to get your name out there. Although I'm not a brand new designer, I've always just kind of designed for me, as a creative outlet rather than as a business. I need to change that! Even though creativity certainly plays a huge part in the digi-scrapping world, it is absolutely a business and should be treated as such. I'm really going to work on that.

I went to see 27 Dresses today with my Mom & sister. It was really funny and I thoroughly enjoyed myself, I just wish I wasn't such a crier! It's sooo embarassing to cry in public over something stupid like a movie lol. Even my Mom made fun of me. Then we met up with my Dad and went over across town to a little Mexican restaurant and had a pitcher of margaritas :) I love after being divorced for so long now, parents can get along so well with each other. My mom even stays at my Dad's house when she comes to town to visit. It was great for us to all go out and be together.

Bad Bad Blogger!

OK so yes, I am a bad blogger! I just can never think of anything exciting to share! Well I have exciting things to share now!

As of last month I am now a Co-Owner of The Scrapping Garden and I am so excited about it!! I love this site so much, and it is truly an honor to be asked. I can't wait for all the new and exciting things that TSG has in store for it's members!

Also, Ragan has been cancer free (sort of lol) for over ONE YEAR!! I say sort of because she still has tumor in her lower spine but it is encased in scar tissue and not currently growing. As long as it isn't growing they consider her to be in remission.

She has been swiched to every 4 month checkups and no more MRI's and CT's. She has been having some residual effects from the chemo, but at this point we can deal with a few potty accidents as long as we don't have to go through that whole ordeal again! She had a checkup on Tuesday and they did a few extra tests to check to make sure that her kidney function is good and we're waiting on the results, but we did get back her AFP (AFP is the chemical that tumors secrete) results. It is a little elevated from her last checkup, but still in the normal range. Her last checkup it was 2.3, this time it was 4.8 and under 6 is normal. If it goes over 6 we have to start chemo again, and possibly go through with the Bone Marrow Transplant that they were going to do before. We go back in June to have it checked again.

My mom is here visiting this week and the kids have loved having her around. She and my sister watched the kids last night so that Joe & I could go out for his birthday dinner. We went to a neat little fondue restaurant called the Melting Pot. It was a little pricey, but it was a fun experience and I'm glad we spent the money to do it.

Ok, so I promise I will try to stay more on top of this blogging thing! The key word is try :)

This week ...

I have 2 new kits available in the store this week. The Touch of Vintage kit (pictured below) and also a brag book mini album of 6 4x6 stickits from my Bella kit.

This album coordinates with my Bella kit also sold at the TSG store:

Ragan has an appointment today for bloodwork. I always hate these appointments. I get so anxious and nervous. I guess it's because so often we get bad news at them lol, but i'm going to have to start thinking positive! She will remain in remission! She WILL!

Tomorrow is what they call "showoff" day at ballet where they let the parents watch through the window so I'm hoping I'll be able to get some more pictures I can scrap of her in her adorable little leotard! :)
