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.

A gift for the "grinch" in your life.

Hey everyone!  I came up with this gift for someone who is on Santa's Naughty list....lol 

I made the chimney gift box from SVG Cut's December Gifts SVG set with papers from Graphic 45. To fill the chimney I made some homemade "coal" my crushing oreos in my food processor and then adding melted marshmallows (similar to how you would make marshmallow treats).  And to top it all off I made an adorable "Grinch" tag by using Grumpy Christmas and Naughty or Nice files from Too Cute by Jessica. 

Happy Crafting!!
Merry Christmas!


  1. I love this! I just finished a Grinch glass block as a gift. I have to get more comfortable with SVG's as the results are great! Thanks for sharing :)


  2. Such an adorable tag! And the treats do look like brownies. The oreo with melted marshmallow sounds so yummy! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas :)
