On the right is...
Baby Bridget...6lb 15oz 20 inches. What a joy to hold her and what a miracle she is already doing so much better. How fragile yet resilient a baby is. If only life would be kind and warm all of her days. On the left Emma looks at her new baby sister with her dad. I am gonna try and get a family shot before the week is out to put on here.

Hello everyone…Merry Christmas! I want to say thank you again for being so understanding about me having to leave town early because of weather and family. Just want to give you an update on all that has happened in such a short time. I got here at 12:15am Wednesday morning, got up and hit the ground running …From taking care of Emma to Christmas programs to baby Bridget’s birth to trying to spend time with the grandchildren leaving for Christmas before they left to helping with the one’s left here…it has been a busy time. Bridget and Janice have had a rough go of it so far and I am praying things will go smoother soon. I am so grateful to have been here to help my children and grandchildren (Kensie had surgery 12/16) in their time of need. I have been practicing with my new camera and hope to upload some pictures for you soon.

"Everyday life is laced with special occasions, not just here and there, or now and then--but everywhere and all the time. Grabbing hold of this simple idea is like winning a front-row ticket to the grandest adventure of all. So come along and savor the journey. Feel the sun on your face and the wind in your hair. Be thrilled when you make a new friend. Be swept away if you've found a new love. Laugh and cry at weddings. Dance the night away at every anniversary. Cherish your family and your work. Roll around on the floor with the kids. Look forward to all your birthday mornings. And with every sunrise, start your life anew." lovelife Kobi Yamada

Happy Hour Scrapbook Retreat 2008 Recap!

Oh, my, did we have a lot of fun at the MOMS Fall Retreat! :)On Friday we were Welcomed by Amy K's family helping all of us in with our "crop gear". When we got to our spots at the tables we were welcomed by a Martini glass with chocolate, a drink (and refill)ticket, a Pebbles Inc. Chalk Kit, and a We R Memory Keepers 6x6 leather album with a calendar kit inside. Food was soon brought out and Jeanie gave some gifts to those who have helped her and a Gift of Gratitude to MOMS previous/founding Owner, Jenn Wasserman.

Then it was time for games with Dan, the Quickutz Guy! He had all Retreaters play a game of Deal or No Deal for Quickutz Product. The big winner of that was Melissa Hoenisch! She won the $300 Quickutz Shopping Spree and decided to get the Quickutz Silouette. Congrats, Melissa! :)

Saturday, Retreaters were greeted with a Scrapbooker's Survival Kit! It was a mini paint can stuffed with candy, mini tape and staplers, and a Live Inspired Book. We also had a Make and Take from My Mind's Eye at our spots. Jeanie demoed some product and whatever she demoed she gave away as part of a drawing. She gave away the New Bind-It-All Corner Rounder, Fiskars Stamp Factory, some Live Inspired books and much more! :) Lunch and Dinner were served and enjoyed! We also worked on our Tag Book that was part of another make and take we were able to do! :)

Sunday, was the BIG Prize Day! :) When the ladies came in, they were greeted and got to draw a tin out of the basket and open it and see what they won. Everyone was a winner, but the BIG winner was Kathy Floen, who got the $100 MOMS Shopping Spree Grand Prize! Other Prizes were Free Admissions to the next Retreat, a class, or the Card Retreat, a half off admission to the next retreat, $25 and $50 Gift Certificates to the store, and much, much more!

From all the smiles and laughter it seems as though EVERYONE who attended was HAPPY! :) Thanks to all who helped and all who attended!:)

Classes & Crops

DON'T miss out on the upcoming events at MOMS!

This Friday night we have a 6 hour crop at MOMS from 6pm-12am. Sign up with a frind and you both will get 20% off your purchse the night of the crop.

Monday is our Motivational Monday class from 7-9pm. This month it is a set of TWO 2-page heritage layouts. Stop into MOMS to see the sample.

Also we have a NEW guest teacher, her name is Lindsey MacDonald, and she comes to use from Pheonix, AZ. Here is a little of what she will be doing....

Are you ready to take rubber and ink for a test drive? I have been obsessed with stamping for 16 years and addicting others for 4. Art has no rules and that is my approach to teaching. Rubber stamping brings so many amazing things to my life…stamps, friends, laughs, challenges, achievements, and relief. I simply want to share it with others. Feel free to make changes, mistakes, and a mess. We will break the rules and have fun with it! Bring some adhesive, a paper trimmer and be ready to laugh.

Join me for a card buffet!

April 26th at Mountains of Memories from 2pm-4pm

First of all, what is it?
I have created 10 samples and you have the chance to make each one for a total of $10. (Envelopes will not be provided.)
What if you don’t like a card or two?
That’s just fine. You can substitute a card for another (make 2 of 5 cards or any combination of 10 you can think of.)
What if I want to make more than 10?
You can do it. There will be 10 samples, if you don’t like one make two of another and so on. Each additional card will by only $1.00. Any leftovers will be brought out for the next month-if they don’t grow too much mold!
What if I don’t have time to make all 10 cards?
This is where a card buffet differs from your local Golden Corral. You can make up a TO-GO box for yourself (although the sample can not be ordered as take out, only the direction sheet.) Bringing a digital camera may be helpful.
What do I need to bring?
Adhesive of your choice and a paper trimmer.
How do I sign up?

Reserve your seat for only $10.00 at Mountains Of Memories. Seating is limited to 10 so sign up today.
