Hitting a brick wall!

Well, just when we thought it was all over...SURPRISE!!

The doctor for Rockland Coaches (Steve's employer) won't clear him to return to work. Says he can't clear him while he's on Topamax since it's a medication also used to treat seizures. He has to be on something that's strictly for migraines. (the doctor has to follow the DOT regulations since Steve drives a bus for a living)

So here we are, back to square one. I would cry...but I think I'm too numb.....

First hurdle has been jumped....

Finally got the OK from one of three doctors for Steve to go back to work. Hopefully Doctors #2 and #3 will give their quick OK and the middle of next week Steve will be working again! WHOOOOO HOOOO!!!! Keep your fingers crossed cause we DESPERATELY need the income!!

Take a look at this! My son is now officially a published poet!!




Last year as part of an english project, they had to submit a poem to a contest run by The American Library of Poetry. This year he got a letter stating his poem was gonig to be published (ok..so it was a total "come-on" to make the parents spend $24.00 for the book) He was so thrilled when he got the letter that of course we sent in our form. The book arrived last week. Here he is showing of his Poem "If I Were a Bear"



Doesn't he look PROUD!! I know we are proud of him!! CONGRATS Michael!!

RUN, Don't walk....

to Treasures to Scrap! OMG!! What a month. There's a digi contest hosetd by Rina Kroes. Check it out!



There's also a contest being sponsored by Cosmo Cricket for all paper scrappers as well. Have you seen the Cosmo cricket papers?? Can you say YUMMMMMMMY?? The contest rules for that is easy.

Make any layout or project using Cosmo Cricket products, post them in the TTS gallery and link that layout or project to this thread.

All layouts of projects need to be new to the web, and TTS. You may share them elsewhere on the web but, they need to be done new this month!!!

We will judge at the end for our favorite project on the 31st of January and the winner will recieve the Winter Wonderland Collection from Cosmo Cricket!!!!

And if that wasn't enough, there's also the Guest Design Team contest, and the Resolutions Game going on. It's a busy month at TTS with lots of great specials (oh did I mention there's a sale on pattern paper as well??). Just head over to Treasures to Scrap and play! You won't be sorry!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

It's with mixed emotions that I say goodbye to 2006. As with any year, it had it's shares of ups and downs. I'm hoping 2007 has more ups than 2006, but I'm sure I"ll deal with whatever is thrown my way!

It's been a few weeks since I posted. Hmm....what's new. My biggest news is that I got picked to be on Alma Townsend's Creative team!! Can you believe it?? Me?? Alma?? The Scrap Habit?? I still pinch myself once in awhile to make sure I'm awake! LOL. If you haven't seen Alma's Designs, she sells exclusively at Scrapbook Elements. Her stuff is AWESOME! I'm having so much fun working with it. Here's a couple layouts with some of her newest kits.





I'm also still on the creative team for Mirranda Reinhardt and Gotta Pixel. I am in heaven. Between the three creative teams I'm on, plus being on the DT at Treasures to Scrap, I have so much inspiration and material to keep me going for a long time!!

On a personal note, Steve should be returning to work within the next couple of weeks. Can you say YAHOOOOOOOO? It will be great to get him back to work, get regular paychecks and get back into a routine! I'll still be working on the weekends..but at least it's extra money until we can catch up!

Well, enough of my blabbering! HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!
