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.

Some of my Crafty Christmas Gifts

Hello Everyone!  I wanted to share with you some projects I made over my break.  This first one I made using the Miss Baker's file from SVG Cuts.  I made this for my girls teacher to hang in her classroom.  I decided to finally part with my Cosmo Cricket paper that I have been hoarding, I mean saving for some years now.  It is hard to tell from the picture but there is a lot of dimension and textures to this.  I love how it came out, and I hope she will too.  

This next project I made as a gift box for my neighbor during Christmas.  Sadly I forgot to take some good pictures of it before I gave it to her, so these are all I have.  I took the Christmas tree box from Santa's Helpful Elves kit (also from SVG CUTS) and made it as big as I could on my mat which I believe was 55 DPI.  I was making the Elf box from that kit at the same time so I decided to turn the Christmas tree into an elf!  The banner on the box is from Miss Baker's set. The sentiment is from my Peachy Keen December SOTM kit.  

My New Years resolution is to get back to crafting so you will be seeing more of me, whether you like it or not! LOL  Happy new Year!
