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.

What are you Thankful for?

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I just love the colors the "light" (and I stress light) chill in the air. It is also the season of "Thanks". Many of you may not celebrate Thanksgiving but you of course are Thankful for something. The challenge over at the challenge over at the The Sisterhood of Crafters this week is about being thankful. Even with the hard times I have gone thru I know I am blessed and very thankful for many things.
Why don't you stop on by The Sisterhood of Crafters this week and share your "Thankful" or Thanksgiving inspired project. Maybe even share your thoughts on what you are most thankful for.

Here is a quick card that I came up with that I will give to my neighbors attached to some baked goods. I had to keep it simple since I was making so many of them but I will dress it up when I attach it.

Hope to see you over at the Sisterhood!
