About Me

My photo
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.

Historic Storm? That's Understatement!!

This is the view from my bedroom window this morning..Imagine my surprise when I raised the shades to look out!

My poor dog...this is all he had to go!

This is a picture of the memorial garden I had planted for my kids. What you can see is the tippy top of a japanese maple dwarf tree and the hearts...that is about 4 ft tall so that will give you an idea of the depth.

Here is a picture of my car...it is a SUV..remember it was plowed out once!

Here is my husbands Dodge Ram truck!

This is my back patio. First in the black in my BBQ and the blue...well that is a tarp that is covering my patio table~!

I thought I would share these pics with you all! This is a picture of my first view this morning. I opened the blinds to see how much snow we got overnight and my mouth fell open! I said outloud..."OH boy this can't be good!" and my hubby was like what? and opened his eyes..at first he thought he was still sleeping!

We have atleast 2ft right now and have a full day of snow to look forward to. I am going to spend literally the whole day in my craft room so I wonder how many things I will be able to crank out! I just hope we don't lose power. I have central heat so without electric I am up a creek without a paddle. I don't care about me but I got to little ones to worry about. My poor dog couldn't even go outside this morning. He peed on the Welcome mat because he couldn't go anywhere else!

We had a neighbor come last night on his tractor to plow for us...thank goodness because my hubby is out there right now and can't even get thru with his snowblower. It is up to his knees right now!


  1. wow! I see a card in that first picture of yours! the glow around the house, looks great!

  2. oh my goodness, I send prayers that your power holds and wishes that you have many warm productive moments. Hugs

  3. OMG hun!! Look after yourselves over there!! And we thought 14 inches was bad!
    Stay safe and warm. . .

  4. LOL, poor doggie!
    We're lovin' it! Snowed inside for the weekend sounds wonderful! But, yes, we better not lose electricity! We have woodstoves, so heat isnt an issue...but I use digis for crafting and they all would be stuck in my computer! lol how gastly would that be!

    I'm glad someone came to help out with the plowing!
    take care & stay cozy!
    Hugs & Blessings, Maria

  5. Looks you got more depth then we did this time. Ours wasn't all that deep but slick due to the freezing rain. I would much rather be buried in snow than deal with the sleet. Stay warm - good day to stay in your pj's all day and scrapbook!! LOL
