About Me

Carlisle, Pennsylvania
I am a stay at home mom..now that is! February 19th, 2007 I was involved in a car accident while on vacation in Florida. I awoke in ICU to find out that my only two children Annemarie age 3 and Michael age 5 did not make it. Scrapbooking became such a big part of my life. It helped fill a void that I desperately needed to fill. Our therapist suggested that I take up scrapbooking as a way to memorialize my children, little did she know! So I took that and ran with it.I became obsessed with scrapping and took over the second largest room in my house. Because of my injuries I couldn't go out and get a job, I just scrapped!I printed out 2,000 photos and my journey began. I have made albums for family members and layouts to decorate my craft room. We thought we were done having kids but who expected this tragedy??? I just gave birth in June 2009 to two beautiful baby girls Mia Anne and Gianna Marie named after their brother and sister.I swore that I would keep up with their albums so I won't become overwhelmed so we will see how that works out! My profile picture is the last family picture that was taken of all of us.

Wishing my Baby Boy a happy 8th Birthday in heaven

Fall time used to be my FAVORITE time of the year. I just love the colors and the changing of the leaves. But now when fall comes I start to fill with dread and heartache. My daughter's birthday is in September and then my son's shortly follows which is today. Not to mention the holidays that follow. This was one of the last pictures that I had done of him for his 5th birthday..sadly he didn't make anymore after that.

I just miss his baby blue eyes and snuggling with him in bed. I know he would say (he never liked to see me upset) "Don't cry Mommy, I will be okay" but it is just hard not to..but I always try to smile thru my tears. I am thankful that I had these two beautiful people in my life, even though it was for a short period of time.

Happy Birthday Mikey!
