so along with being Halloween... today has been HELL.
the only good thing was Madi's costume... and I GOT TXTING BACK!!!
otherwise. found out a friend was a flake...
found out that im not really needed anymore when i thought i was...

im tired of being nice to people that dont deserve my time and effort.

Bday n Bookmark

So since i JUST posted pics of 'life' here are pics of cards... well... a card and a bookmark, cuz i dont wanna make this post forever long cuz otherwise ya wont see the other one!! :)
I am in the process of trying to figure out pricing and such for cards i make... and im going to start trying to sell altered notebooks and such on Facebook cuz i have had a few people tell me that they would buy em!! :) so i will be taking custom orders for those... and my goal for next summer is to get into a craft show either by myself or with my mom and sell some stuff!! :)
As soon as our money sitch is better i wanna get business cards ordered so i can hand em out and send em along w.RAKS and such :)
(plus this way if i do things online then whenever we move outta Iowa, i dont have to worry about closing a store... it will travel wherever i go!!!)
This is just another 'Happy Birthday' card that i made... this one took me like (literally) 3 min to put together cuz it was also a previously colored image!! (i color images while the hubby plays xbox!! keeps me entertained so i dont 'bitch' LOL!) i found the pink mulberry paper in my stash and busted it out for this one... i forgot how much i like that stuff!! :)

'RELAX' Bookmark... this one kinda happened on accident... i colored the image in ahead of time and had the papers just laying out on the table... so i decided to make something outta it! :)
Welp, on that note i should get the lil one in bed... she's been a busy busy girl outside w.her Great Gma lately!! :)
Thanks all for everything...
Luv n Hugs


Been awhile since i posted some pics of things other than cards...

isnt it funny how one minute you can be smiling and the next its all you can do to force one?

life is totally depressing on my end. its like whatever i do to try and cheer up is a completely wasted effort.

i just feel like the world is going to crap and that nobody really cares about anyone else anymore. i've always been nice to other people to try and make them happy first, and now it's like the older i get/more crap i put up with, the more i realize how stupid it is. i mean, im the one who is/has been depressed for 3 years (literally... just about every smile is an act) and i sit there and try and make everyone else happy first. all that does is make me even more sad cuz i give in to them and i get to feel unappreciated. its like one thing after another. depression is not easy... esp when its not JUST you that deals with it...

Code has been putting up with my random outbursts and freak-outs right along with me. he just doesnt know what to do to cheer me up anymore and neither do i.

i know exactly what i want out of life but its so far away it doesnt seem possible.

PLUS, i feel like i have a tiny lil support system, when i need everyone i know to notice that im trying.
its almost exhausting trying to make others happy. is it worth it in the long run? are you supposed to spend your life trying to make others happy instead of yourself?

i've been thru all sorts of things in life but being depressed is by far the most painful. its literally "smile one minute, frown the next". one LOOK can destroy my entire attitude.

i just feel like Code & i have hit rock bottom... neither one of us is working (well Code is KINDA) so we cant pay our bills...

so having fun is almost pointless also. i just cant justify going and having a good time when we have no money and i think life sucks so bad.

most of my days start with me not wanting to get out of bed. once im up, i sit around and be depressed... feed Madi, (not myself) put M down for a nap, sit around and be depressed... she gets up... cycle repeats itself. i flat out dont care about myself when im depressed. i dont eat when im upset/depressed... so i end up losing weight and energy. not the best diet!!

what sucks the worst is i have no friends to call and vent to. the handful of 'friends' i have are always busy doing something else and i dont get invited. sooo, it makes me not want to call them cuz they're out enjoying life while im stuck at home.

idk what to do anymore. :(

anyways thanks for listening... i really needed to vent :(

Hope all is well with everyone else!

(i will be posting some pics tomorrow... so be lookin for em!!)

Also, i wanted to upload a card i JUST made for the Color Challenge i'm hosting over on Any Stamp Will Do... Code gave me the inspiration (2 colors) for this one so i was happy to do it :) i love when he helps... its kinda nice knowing that he's supportive of me! :)

OH YEAH! i just remembered that i never posted the cards that i received from the KETTO swap over on SCS!! :) i was very happy w.all of em!! i'm gonna keep em too! (i just wish everyone would've written their names on them somewhere cuz some are completely blank) but yeah! im sooo glad i did two entries!! i got more cards that way!! 5 wouldnt have been enough to get all excited about :) sooo i took a pic and thought i would share it w.ya :)

ALRIGHTY THEN thats about it for now... i will be back tomorrow w.BDAY PICS!! :)

Thanks for lookin and have a great week!!

Just a quick update...

Just wanted to quick update some pics :) First off... we have my lil peanut outside playing ;) I love this pic!!
Next, we have the front of the gatefold card i made for Code for Father's Day :) (got a chance to use my new Magnolias!! and my BG Wisteria papers again!!)
Next, we have the inside of Code's card... pics are from last year, but its still cute and it works!
This is the card that i made for Madi to give to Code :) i about freaked when i saw the stamp and sentiment!! HAD TO HAVE EM! :) reminds me of Code and Madi :) used my new BG paper and some SU! ribbon
And finally... this is the color challenge for Any Stamp Will Do this week. :) i made this card for Gma Dar cuz i thought the stamp looks like Madi and her BFF Hop Hop!

Welp, that's about it for now... i have a few projects in the works and i will get those pics posted as i finish them!!

(Mom's bday present will not be published till after July 8 because she would see it!!)

Hope all is well w.everyone!!

Take care and God Bless!!!

What's new in my lil world...

As you know, Father's Day is coming up, so i decided to make a card for my dad using my new stuff!! :) i used the Lime Rickey paper from Basic Grey, Stampin Up! Ribbon, my new robot stamp and sentiment and a coolie metal flower i got in a RAK from Samantha! :) I still have to make one for Layne (Cody's dad) and then i'm done making Father's Day cards!! I made Code a cool gatefold card and gave it to him already (i just need to take a pic and post it) and then i also made Code a card for Madi to give him.. she just needs to write on the inside :)

This is a card i made for a Color Challenge on Any Stamp Will Do. I got to make up the colors for this one... so i got a chance to use my new Wisteria papers by Basic Grey. :) i used a Gorjuss Girl image i got from Samantha on this one cuz i thought she was really cute and went with the colors well. (i tend to color images in advance so it's more difficult for me to make a card)
Along with the Color Challenges (which i am helping Sam with while she's away), i am in charge of the group called 'Are ya up for a Challenge?' where every Monday i post a new challenge and a card i have made for the challenge. it's a good way for me to stay on top of making things and not allowing me to slack off! i'm not a big fan of being hot- so staying inside where it's kinda air conditioned is gonna help me have time to make some stuff too!!
On another note, Mom and I are starting to get more ideas for a business! I have come up with some good names (which will be announced later since i have yet to tell Mom lol) and different marketing ideas and such for it! Earlier i sat down and wrote out some things we could sell and pricing ideas... so once we start making things we have a better idea of what to make and how much to sell it for :) I'm EXCITED! i cant wait to get things going!!
Code and i were talking the other day about our goals for the future, and i told him that i really would just rather stay at home w.Madi and make stuff and sell it. it's not that i dont think i can do it.. its just that im scared of failing that keeps me from jumping in head first. i think it's about time for me to just JUMP and see where it takes me!! i mean after all, life is about taking risks right? if i dont take a risk doing what i love then i wont ever be truly happy!! Code wants to go back to school for car stuff and eventually open his own shop :) anything is possible!!! he's very smart when it comes to cars and fixing them... he just sells himself short!!
Welp, off to hang out with my lil one and get some more cards made!!
Hope all is well with everyone!
Have a great day!

Other than that- THANKS for all who have participated in my blog candy so far!! as of right now I am going to have Cody and Madi draw names from a hat to determine a winner... that is unless i get a lot of hits between now and June 8!! :)
Just wanted to update w.some pics... i made some cards the other day also... will post em later tho! Have a good night and rest of the weekend!

i heart music.

isnt this pic amazing?! found it while browsing thru yahoo images :) i love music so i thought it was appropriate :)

sooo its been a few days and im still without my camera... so no blog candy pics yet!

good news is that im adding to it everyday :) im thinkin since im getting close to the 1000 hit marker that i will just do it pretty good sized cuz then i dont hafta come up with stuff to do two candies!!! ya'll are gonna LOVE me lemme tell ya! i dropped $9 on a bag of random candy the other day at Target so i can send out CANDY in my blog candy haha :) totally couldnt help myself! i was gonna go all out n send my FAVES- Ghirradeli Milk Chocolate w.Caramel :) but i know they would all break before they got where they were goin!
other than that life has been stressful as usual... found out my grandparents are extremely rude and selfish... (they were never really my grandparents anyways... just complete strangers) and they shared their unwelcome opinions with the wrong people and well.. its gonna hit the fan in a week! :) i recently got told my my 'grandmother' that my "PROBLEM" is my "BIG MOUTH". PSH she's never heard it and shes just about to. (p.s. this was brought to my attention during regular conversation about how im not going to my cousin's grad party cuz i dont like her... AT my other cousin's babyshower. ARG! n lemme clarify for those who dont know me personally... i am very respectful and sweet- and then people cross me and i get to express how i feel.. and i dont like to sugar coat (which i do on here for other peoples' benefits) so it ends up in some lil blow out deal. sooo when i was 'informed' of my 'problem' (which i was in complete shock to hear by the way) i just had to stand there and laugh it off. as soon as she left tho i told everyone what she had said. my family is knucking futz. seriously. (if u dont get knucking futz... look a lil harder lol). its times like these that i would be completely happy moving outta state and away from those kinda people. its not like i would lose much! and FRIENDS- psh what friends?! im down to 1! i most deff dont feel sad either cuz i dint do anything to lose friends! they are just all consumed w.being a drunk idiot to realize they are forgetting about people... which is fine! i went thru a drinking phase also but i grew up and realized theres more to life than bar hopping and shopping for new clothes to go get drunk in. (VENTING SRY GUYS)
neways i am sposta be goin over to see Meg tonite (the cousin bout to have a baby) and i will get my camera back then... so TOMORROW i will be taking pics of my newbie creations and of course the BLOG CANDY!!! :) btw i made a funny card to put on Any Stamp Will Do and i havent gotten a chance to get a pic of it yet... but its a hoot :) cant wait to post it! it'll show everyone my humor for sure! :)
Code and I are going to a hip hop show tonite where our friend Q is performing :) "Q Hefna" LMAO haha if u knew Q you would get it... otherwise use your imagination! lol! should be fun!! :) we have a couple other friends in it too and when we went last month we ended up stayin out til like 5am! yeah idk how jazzed i am about that so we're proly not stayin out for the 'after party' haha! went to bed lastnite at 12! it was weeeeeeeird! im usually not in bed til 1 or 130ish :) i needed some beauty sleep!
welp i spose i should go get some cards and things done... i still have a RAK to get together and send out! (kinda forgot about it but i dont have her addy neways so its not like i could mail it!)
have a good weekend everyone! hope its nice out!

Thursday, May 14, 2009


so i thought i would bring it to everyone's attention again that i will be doing a BLOG CANDY giveaway soon! i have officially hit my 50 comment marker and now i just need to take a pic of my goodies and make my list and then post away!! :) i have been adding things to it everyday and having the hubby suggest lil things to add... hopefully ya'll will like what u see!
mine is gonna be a lil different than other people's... i'm doing a smaller candy now... and a bigger one later... im thinkin around 1,000 hits or something cuz im at 750 right now! :) i figure it will take a lil while to get 250 more views on here unless ppl go nuts and start comin here all the time!
neways just wanted to update about that...
ALSO- i want to do Christmas RAKS w.anyone who may be interested... just throwing the idea out there for now but we would send them around the 15th of December and that way we all get them for Christmas :) i know i would be happy to get anything from anyone of my 'scrappy friends' for Christmas so whatd'ya say?! LETS DO IT!!
welp off to research some stamps online! im bound n determined to get my hands on some copics, Sugar Nellies and Gorjuss Girls!!! :)

Thanks for stopping by!!

I WANT THIS SOOO BAD! literally its really freakin cute and i would spaz if i won this!!! if i dont, however... i am always willing to take one from anyone who can sew!! lol... MOM, DAR... any takers?! :)

all for now,
back later!!



First off... HAPPY LATE MOTHER'S DAY TO EVERYONE!!! Code n Madi picked some Lilacs for me!! (MY FAVE!) so naturally i was pretty jazzed and thought a photo was necessary :)

This was a random card... i was thinking to myself... "Self, Asian people have bright colored hair sometimes so i should make my Ivy Ketto look like it!" and well here ya have it... totally random! i've been coloring in images while bored watching Code play Call of Duty on Xbox... so its a lil more of a challenge when i go to make the card! instead of coloring to coordinate paper, its backwards! :)

Made this card for a color challenge on Any Stamp Will Do... i LOVE this image... i was only sent one in a RAK so if anyone has her PLZ will u send me some more?! and i finally figured out how to 'destroy' my paper like they do in the SU cattys :) lol

This lil sweet is another random idea... i decided to stamp her right onto the DP to see what it would look like... i still colored her in as normal, and i colored the guitar and used liquid glass over it to make it look all shiny :) i embossed her crown and kiss stamp embossing powder to match the gold brad and rock n roll theme :)

Miss Margarita Ketto was fun to play with too... i wanted to use purple n orange for her and the green just kinda happened... i like her tho she's cute :)

isnt she the cutest lil thing? i had to do something out of the ordinary for her, so i braided 3 lil roses together and attached em staples :)

Made this for my mom :) i wanted to steer in the complete opposite direction of the 'traditional pink and such' MD cards. plus, i had colored this Kenya Ketto in prior to making the card and so i thought i would just use it since theres pink n purple on it... and i can still spin off in a diff direction! (she will see it for the first time on here but hope she likes it!)

Otherwise i have been keeping busy! i only work 3 days this week so its quite the change from the chaos of last week! MAN i never realized how 'traditional' it was to buy ur mom flowers on MD until i worked at Flowerama AGAIN! (it was my very first job EVER... how funny is that?!) but yeah when i havent been busy working, ive been trying to get caught up on sleep! i hafta admit i have one of the best hubbies ever... today he let me sleep in til oohh 10:45am when Madi got up w.him at 7:30! i havent been sleeping well lately so he decided to be nice and let me have some time to myself :) gotta love it! (plus im not at all a morning person so its kinda lovely to lay in bed all day... and its cloudy so naturally i wanna sleep all day anyways haha)

NEWAYS just wanted to let ya'll know that i havent forgotten about my BLOG CANDY!!! i have been adding to it for the last few days and its gettin pretty big ;) lol...

AH speaking of Blog Candy... CHECK THESE OUT!


Thats all for now... i will update soon w.a pic of my FABULOUS BLOG CANDY!!!! :)
Til then... Happy Scrappin, Stampin or whatever it is that u do!
Hugs n Slugs

Friday, May 8, 2009


MAN am i tired! Flowerama has really piled on the hours this week! im workin like 45-50! very drastic change from what i was doin... stayin at home w.Madi! the next 2 days are gonna suck... i won't even be able to see Madi cuz Cody is doing deliveries for Flowerama today (from 8am-?) and tomorrow (8am-?) so Madi is staying with Dar overnight so Code can just get up and go. it sucks tho cuz i work til close tonite which is like 10ish and M will already be asleep at Dar's house. then tomorrow i work at noon, which means i wont get to see her in the morning. :(
annnnd of course i work on Mother's Day since it's the busiest day of the year... (i work 10am-6pm) so i wont get to see her really til i get off work on Sunday. :(
its kickin my ass! i barely get a chance to eat at work... im running around all day long and when i get home, i barely sleep at night. and not cuz i stay up late... just cuz i cant seem to STAY asleep. on top of that, everyone at work is all stressed about 'production' and getting it done as fast as humanly possible.. and some of these girls have worked there for a long time- its my first week and they want me to do everything as fast as they do! AHHH! lol! its like all my limbs are being pulled in different directions and im about to break lol.
neways just wanted to update... more later!

Thursday, April 30, 2009


I GOT A JOB! at Flowerama on 1st ave :)
(there was a much longer post here but i chose to delete it cuz i felt like it)

Tuesday, April 28, 2009


it's about that time...
im at 45 comments so far...
ya know what that means?
i cant wait! i totally didnt realize that it was this close already! guess that means i will hafta bust out my stash of goodies for someone! :)
im thinkin bout doing one when my 'hit meter' hits 1000... im at like 620 right now! ;) so this candy is gonna be smaller than that one!
i will get a pic uploaded soon so ya'll can see what ur going up against!
(i havent decided when to start the candy but im going to let it run for about a week to see how many ppl i can get in on it... and then my hubby and daughter will draw names from a bucket to see who wins)
neways... im off to finish up online and then off to try and put some more goodies in my candy :)
hope everyone has a good day!

Whats new...

Whats new? Not too much really! i have kepy busy working on cards and stamping images for RAKS and Swaps galore! :) i just finished up my 12 KETTO cards for the KETTO Swap over at Split Coast Stampers... i used the Miss Match and Sake stamps for my cards and they turned out really cute :) But of course... i wouldnt send cards that look like crap and expect people to like them or me to maybe win anything?! lol!
AHH I WON BLOG CANDY!!! SO EXCITED! cant believe i didnt write on here about it sooner! Neways my girlie Sarah in Florida had her hubby and S-I-L draw names and they drew mine twice!!! it was meant to be! lol! Naturally i am excited- its the first blog candy i have ever won and i know i had made a post about how im never gonna win... welp just goes to show ya NEVER SAY NEVER!
So Code and i went on a 2 hour walk earlier! it was sooo nice outside and the perfect day to go on a walk.. or boating.. lol (yeah i dont have a boat but i wish i did!) but yeah it was nice to spend time with him... just the two of us! we also got some cleaning done lastnite and did some laundry and dishes today. Gma Dar took M lastnight when she got off work (around like 6pm) and Madi still isnt home! lol! she's sooo in love w.her Great Grandma! I LOVE IT! personally... i never got the chance to hang out with my Great Grandma... or even really my Grandparents... anyone who knows me knows that i have adopted Gma Dar as mine :) i mean... she's been more of a Grandma to me than my own! kinda sad... but not really.. it's their loss! PLUS- how could i turn down some of the BEST food ive ever had?! lol... Gma Dar is where its at! :) LOVE YA DAR! :)
Tomorrow is my cousin Meg's babyshower!! (see photo) i hafta admit its weird going to it- let alone HELPING! :) it's all good tho... she's the cousin i used to babysit when we were littler... and it makes me feel OLD now that she's gonna be a mom! i mean i ALREADY have a 3 year old- and i cant figure out where all the time went from the time she was a baby in my arms to now when shes goin potty like a big girl and telling me allll sorts of things! TIME FLIES! i guess ya never realize just how fast it goes by until its gone..
The shower should be fun tho... we're doin the baby food in a diaper game- leavin it open so u hafta smell it to see what it is... then we have a bottle of M&M's and everyone hasta guess how many are in it and whoever is closest wins a $5 Blockbuster Giftcard and bag of popcorn... then we are doing the one where we measure her waist... and then we made 30 lil cards to people to write something nice or advice in for Meg. :) (Cards and giftcard were my ideas!!!) We bought a lil basket to put things in and we are going to walk it around the room and have everyone look at it and then they have to wait until we are all the way around the room and then they have to try and write down as many items as they can remember from the basket and whoever gets the most right wins a prize. it should be easy :) We also bought a lil photo album to slide all her cards into when she's done reading them. Hope she likes everything! Below is a photo of the mini book i made for Meg when i found out she was pregnant w.Cedric Owin Hamilton :)
May is my month for being RAK PERSON #3!!! i am really excited to see what im gonna get! us girls over on Paper Craft Planet like to spoil each other w.all sortsa goodies! i have done a lot of swaps and met some awesome people that i could call friends from ALL over the world! it's awesome :) anyone involved w.RAKS knows what im talking about! for those who dont know what a RAK is... it's a Random Act of Kindness :) i mean who DOESNT like to get something cool in the mail?! i freakin love it! its like Christmas all the time! lol! with that said... ya'll should go check out Karin's blog... she's the one who got me started on the RAKS! she's a VERY creative woman and makes adorable cards and little gifts for ppl :)
