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.

Missing in action but for a good reason!!!

I haven't been on here for awhile because my darling hubby is making me a custom craftroom remodel! One of my biggest faults is that I am so NOT organized. I have a huge kitchen table as a work space but most of it gets wasted. My hubby is rebuilding a hot rod and spending money like its water so I decided to do that same..LOL! Actually I cashed in my points on my credit card and got some Gift cards to Lowe's so we can get most of the supplies.

My hubby and I have been working on the desk together and I am actually really enjoying it! The desk system is almost done. The way it will be is the desk will wrap all the way around the room so I can have separate stations for my Cricut, sewing machine, Cuttlebug, and of course room to scrapbook!! I just look at the desk and smile from ear to ear because I am so excited! Once the parts are in that we have done he will build all of the shelves and the right side of the room. He wants to wait so I can see what I need once I start piling stuff in the drawers/spaces etc.

The downside of this all is that I have not been able to craft. The other bad thing is that I have to clean my craftroom so I can get the new stuff in!! ARRGGHHH I will actually take the embarrasing before picture of my craftroom.

Here are some pics of the project so far!


  1. such a sweetheart! enjoy your new room!

  2. Your space sounds like it's going to be awesome. What is your husband rebuilding? Mine is rebuilding a 71 Chevelle, but he's not moving too quickly on it. HA Shari (cricutrookie)

  3. WOW this is going to be SO AWESOME when completed!! I remember how excited I was when my DH built my shelves/cabinets and gave me my own little "corner of the world"! Can't wait to see the finished product ... AWESOME!!!
