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.

Tis' the season for Holiday gift boxes!

Many people who don't normally bake year round even bake at the holidays.  I am a baker myself and enjoy combining my two passions, Baking and crafting! 

I made this set of milk carton (gift boxes which I purchased from the Silhouette store) and used Too Cute By Jessica's Cute Cocoa Cups to decorate the front as well as stamps from Craftin' Desert Divas.  I used two stamps from the newly released Baked with Love stamp set.  I colored the rolling pin in with my markers and popped it up with some pop dots, then added the sentiment which is from the same set as well.  These boxes were super easy and quick to put together!
