I Could Not Ask For More

I haven't done a challenge in a LONG time, but when I saw this was the song over at Scrap the Music, I had just the picture in mind. I hope you like it. Here are the lyrics to this song.

I Could Not Ask For More Lyrics

by Sara Evans
Written by Diane Warren

Lying here with you
listenin' to the rain
smilin just to see
the smile upon your face

These are the moments
I thank god that I'm alive
These are the moments I remember all my life
I've found all I've waited for
And I could not ask for more

Looking in your eyes
seeing all I need
Everything you are
Is everything to me

These are the moments
I know heaven must exist
These are the moments
I know all I need is this
I've found all I've waited for
And I could not ask for more

I could not ask for more than this time together
Could not ask for more than this time with you
And Every prayer has been answered,
Every dream I've had's come true
I've found all I've waited for,
And I could not ask for more.

Happy HEART Day!

I enjoyed the day in my pj's with my husband watching the Daytona 500 and cooking a yummy steak dinner out on the grill. Yep, he shoveled what was left of the 16 inches on the deck so we could get to the grill. This is what I made for him with Stampin' Up!'s little tins that have been on clearance. I saw this idea on Stampin' Connection (group for demonstrators only) I apologize I forgot who it was, but I loved this idea and so did my husband. He is putting it on his desk at work
Here is the roses that he had for me on the table when I came downstairs this morning. I am so lucky to be married to my sweetheart. We sure have been through a lot, but it has paid off to fight through all of the troubles to be where we are today.  
I hope you enjoyed your Valentine's Day!

Back to Work :(

I knew it was going to be slow today so I brought some things with me to work on. What do yuo think? i started these at my Scrapbook getaway last weekend. I finished at total of 15 of the darling little pins. There are 2 ways you can get one. 1. Buy one for $15.00 and $10.00 of the proceeds goes to my groups Relay for Life team. 2. If you don't have one booked yet, book a workshop with me from now until the end of March and you can get one for FREE!!!!
This one my upline Kim had already cut out and asked me to assemble it to sell for our Relay team. I just love these colors. They look great pinned to your jacket or dress up a plain sweater.

I think this one is so cute and bright for Easter.

I did a few of these in different colors. My daughter's College Cheerleading team uses the Zebra print as an accent to her school colors of Black and Yellow. So I made one for her coach. I also made them in Red for a local All-Star Cheerleading team that I am doing a Scrapbook Workshop for next weekend. I'm sure they are going to love them!
this is an Extra Special one! This is my Love At First Stamp pin. My upline made this to match my purse below. All of these projects were made with the Stampin' Up! Big Shot and dies. The purse below is made with a Stampin' Up! exclusive die. (that means you can only get it from me :) ) Aren't these just the cutest things? If you are interested and would like to learn more contact me today.

Sorry this picture has a bad glare. I don't have my camera with me at work so I took them with me cell phone and sent them to myself. Not bad for a camera phone? Ok I have to get back to work. I hope you enjoyed my projects today.

Happy Valentine's Day! These are some cookies I made for Kayla to send out to her for Valentine's Day. She has over 40 inches of snow and I am not going to make it out to see her this weekend, so I'm sending her some goodies! Enjoy.....

Got Snow?

We did. It has been so long since I've seen snow like this. I am home for the second day in a row. The highways were actually shut down. I don't have anyone to go out and play with in it. Jonathan and Tyler are at a friends house and John had to go to work. I guess I will just have to go out to my stamp room and get creative. Here are some pictures of us out shoveling yesterday.
I asked him he wanted help and he said no.
This is the park across the street from my house. I think I will have to recruit someone to go sledding with today. It looks like it would be so much fun.
This was at like 3:00 in the afternoon and I think we got like 5 more inches before the snow stopped around 10PM
My BFF walked over to see me. I did bundle up and went out to help John shovel.
I'll have to go take some pictures of what it looks like today.

Love at First Stamp Swap

Ok, I figured it out. Gees, why couldn't I get this picture uploaded yesterday? hahaha. If you'd like to learn more about our swaps and group meeting contact me today. We have such a blast!

Snow Day and I'm loving it!

This past weekend I was invited to a Scrapbooking Getaway in the Poconos. While it was snowing here at my house we didn't see one single snowflake up there. I was looking forward to the snow covered view we had. It was still beautiful without the snow. I had an awesome time! I met some new people and I got to know some people that I have met in the past. Diane was an absolutely wonderful hostess! I don't want to go into too many details, because the 6 of us that were there want to kind of keep this our little secret. hahaha just kidding. I got so much scrapbooking done. I did my swaps for my uplines Monthly meeting on the 21st. What do you think of them? I used the Totally Tess Stamp Set and things I Love Stamp Set. I love these 2 sets. I'm having trouble posting a picture. Hopefully I can upload on a new post.

So today I am snowed in and I plan to get some more scrapping done and I am low on cards myself so I am going to have my own mini Stamp A Stack. I have some emails I have to send out to customers, then I think I'm going to go out and play in the snow with my boys! Gosh.. it's been a long time since I have done that, but it's been a long time since we've seen snow like this. I hope you have a great day!

I have a Challenge

I now have 5 Demonstrators in my first level and 1 in my second level. Once you become a Supervisor in Stampin' Up! you can choose your own Group name. Well, I am now a Senior Supervisor and I still don't have a Group Name. Soooo.... my challenge is for you to give me some ideas. The name has to have something to do with stamping or anything affiliated with it.
I am a Happie Stamper and I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
Reply to this entry with your idea by Saturday, February 13th and I will release the winning name on HEART Day, February 14th. So what's in it for you? I will give the person with the winning name a package of Stampin' Up! Assorted Card Stock. Good Luck! Feel free to offer this challenge to your friends!

Happy February! long post

I can not believe it is February already. Where is the rewind button? Sometimes I feel like life is going too fast to even enjoy it. I certainly have enjoyed this past month though.
It started with News Years Eve (my birthday)All the kids were (for the most part) home. Then made dinner and had my bestest friend Karen and her family over for dinner New Year's Day. What an awesome way to start the new year! Off to Leadership the 1st week which you can read about in my previous posts. The 2nd week brought me to a meeting with my retirement community Stamp Club. I love getting together with these ladies. I was also a vendor at the Local Community Center All Day Crop where I booked 2 workshops. YEAH!!! 3rd week started with our Love At First Stamp Group Meeting at my uplines where we told all of the others how much fun it was and they should focus on trying to get there next year! Kim, Susan and I did a Mock Workshop which was a lot of fun. I am so glad to be a part of this Awesome Group of ladies! The end of Jan. brought me to a great ending of an eventful month. Jenn was the hostess for this month's marker club and since it was Sale-A-Bration she decided to do it as a Workshop and she invited all of her friends. We had such a great time making some cute Valentine Treats. I talked to her a little after the Workshop about the oppurtunity to be a SU! Demonstrator and invited her over to my upline's the next night to make a Rag Bag with the Big Shot with some others from our group and so she was hooked. By Wednesday I was at her house and she was signing up to be a Demonstrator! WOOHOO!!! Welcome Jenn! I'm so inspired by your creativity and passion for attaining your goals. You are going to do awesome and awesome you did! With her first order she bumped up a level to Senior Associate already. My upline, Kim and I hosted our first class together on Friday night. We focused on Valentine's Day and made some REALLY cute projects. We will be holding a class together the last Friday of every month from 6:30PM-9:30PM. So mark your calendars. I will post info every month as soon as we get our projects together. On Saturday my son had his last High School Varsity Wrestling Team Match. He has been struggling this year with coming up with a win, well this match came down to him. I was sick to my stomach. Remind me again why I love this sport so much? :) He has been pinned all of his prior matches and all he needed was to not get pinned and the team would win. He wrestled with all of his heart, like I've never seen him wrestle, he didn't win, but he didn't get pinned and won the match for the team! I am such a proud mom I just had to put that out there! That was the ending to my month. whewwww.... I hope I didn't bore anyone. It actually was an exciting month for me and thanks for reading. Maybe you will be inspired to make the positive out of every situation. I look forward to February.

My goal is to post as the month goes on and not these SUPER long posts. Enjoy your day! brrr.... it's cold outside!
