I'm Scrappy!

Amazingly, I have been scrapping!! Here are a few of my favorite LOs from using the Fun & Festive Kit that I designed. If you are a scrapper, the extravaganza kit is a must have! I had so much fun creating the kit AND scrapping with it! Actually, after this post, I'll be off to do another using the kit! Hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving, we did! Oops, this first one isn't made with the kit, just a few parts of the kit were used.

What's a girl to do?

I just got an e-mail from someone telling me some very exciting news! I can't tell anyone, yet. What do I do? I guess you all have to wait until tomorrow afternoon! Then I can spill. Do you think I am actually going to be able to sleep tonight? Nope. What's a girl to do? maybe a beer will help! Maybe posting some LOs will help... I used the Flavorful kit to make these. I really loved working with this kit. all the colors are beautiful!!!!

ok, I'm still pretty anxious to spill, but I will just go instead!

Who has time to breathe??

I certainly don't! I feel as though I don't even sit anymore unless it's to feed the baby! I do have to say that I love my little baby girl! We, meaning the 3 older kids and I, gave Cali a bath today! Caytlynn was the photographer, Cass was the big helper and Cullen was the biggest helper (in not letting me do my job - lol!) it all boiled down to a great time and fun for all the kiddos. I wanted to get a pic of all of their feet, but it just ended up being a laugh fest with all the kiddos stomping their feet on the floor:

And here is my baby girl, she is perfect! Look at that hair, what a DIVA! Most people pay big bucks for fabulous hair like that and here she is, only 9 days old and she doesn't even TRY to have good hair, it's just naturally perfect! She is so model-esque in this photo, I love it! This photo is much better than some of those ANTM pictures. I'm telling you all right now, she is going to grow up and be a model with fabulous hair! And did you check out those legs in the last photo??? That really just seals the deal!

I'm so excited about this!!!!! I have 2 LOs in here. I try to forget about publications until I actually GET the publication, but I happened to see this on-line and hyped myself up about it and can't wait to get it!!!

That's it for now! All I need to remember is to just breathe!

Cali is here!

Yea! I am so blessed to have a healthy AND beautiful 4th child! Seriously, I could not ask for anything more! She is the tiniest of the bunch weighing in at 8 pounds 2 oz. You can visit her web page here - and leave a message if you wish. I will be including all the messages in a scrapbook page, go figure ;) Here are a few of my fav pics from the BIG event!

The Final Countdown!!!

7 days until my due date - yipee!!! Hopefully it'll be sooner! Although, every night I think to myself "well, at least I can get this and that done before I have this baby!" - lol. Seriously, I have been so busy!!! The UPS and Fedex guy are now my friends!

I have been tagged by 3 of my peeps! I will get to it, I promise, but probably not before the baby is here - sorry!!! Yikes, I haven't had any time to visit those blogs either!!! Too bad they didn't have internet access at the hospital... or do they??? hmmmm, looks like I'll be checking into that tomorrow! I could get caught up on so much stuff!

Well, I have been to 2 crops in the past 2 weeks. which is more than I've been to in the past 30-some years of my life ;) I can't wait to share what I did with the November kit, which BTW, is a MUST have kit!!!

The girls tri-bunk bed should be here this week! Yea! They are so excited! Here's a pic, just imagine pink walls, princess comforters and barbie and tinkerbell sheets! - lol
Corey just painted the room a really pretty pink. I have been waiting for the beds to decorate the walls with flowers, butterflies and flourishes! I may even use some of the huge prima say it in crystals swirls... just hoping it won't look stupid and then i ruined the paint job and the swirls!

Here's a few of the LOs I have done in the past few weeks:

Thanks to all of you that visit me here :)
Becbeck out!

?????? pounds of chipboard! and finally, a name!


Yes, 2200 pounds of Urban Lily secret Keepers and board books invaded my home yesterday! One by one I brought a box to the door where my mom helped and stacked them in the appropriate spot. My mom, what an angel! One more shipment of journals, I wonder how much those bad boys are going to weigh???? Any estimates?

We have chosen Cali Kenzi for our daughter's name. 6 weeks and 2 days until the due date! I can't wait to meet her :) oooooooh, I can't wait until she's out of my belly too!!!

Party Time!

Caytlynn turned 5 last week and I decided to let her have 4 friends over for a party. All went well! I had all the girls dress up in a princess outfit, I sprinkled fairy dust over their heads and asked them to make a wish, we played pin the lips on the frog, ate pizza(you know princess do eat pizza!) and made some paper purses and decorated with paper flowers. Here's Caytlynn, she had such a blast! A "as good as it's going to get" pic of all the girlies!! Cass was the hardest to get still!

Caytlynn had 2 days of school this week. When I asked what happened she said "we went out for recess!" and I said "what else?" she said "i forgot" nothing has changed from K4!!! Although, her and Cassidy sure do make up for lost time when she gets home... constant bickering, fights, toy stealing! Before they could spread all that love throughout the day, now they only have a few hours to do it and it drives me bonkers!!

Christine (check out her blog: tagged me, so I must keep this going! It's been a looong time since she tagged me, but I am still going to do this. The Rules: So this is how it works. I must post the rules, 7 random things about me and then tag others to do the same. Sound fair enough, right? These are the rules…. each player starts with 7 random facts about themselves on their Blog. People who are tagged need to blog 7 facts about themselves and post the rules as well. At the end of their blog list 7 people you are tagging. Let them know that they are tagged by leaving them a comment.
1. I have a tattoo of a kitty just under the waist line.
2. I played violin, flute cello and alto sax in HS.
3. I am one of the BIGGEST reality TV junkies!
4. I love 80s music and plan to listen to it until the day I die.
5. I am terrified of going over high rises and big, long bridges. Although I do because it's so darn convenient :?
6. I cannot get enough Miracle Whip on any sandwich/burger!I love it so much! Also, I used to eat Miracle Whip sandwiches... just the bread and mayo - eeek!
7. I am secretly married to Wentworth Miller... shhhhh, don't tell my hubby ;)
And now I will tag:

2500 Pounds!!!

Yep, 2500 pounds of Urban Lily paper invaded my house on Thursday! The only day I teach kickbox! So, I had double the workout!!! Totally worth it, did you see the papers??? WOW!

Well, tomorrow Caytlynn kinda starts school. We have orientation tomorrow morning, so it's not a full day. Her first official full day is Thursday. It should be interesting! I'm looking forward to a little less chaos here. Although it will be sad not having her around :(

8 weeks left! lil baby Teichmiller will hopefully be here within 8 weeks! These last 8 weeks are always the worst - blech!!! Luckily the hot, hot sticky days should be over with, at least for the most part!

Here's a LO I did using Kelly's French Kiss kit! I also used the add-on and cardstock add-on ! There are a few kits left at Scrap-Tastic! Also, only a few paintables left as well!!!

dazed and confused!

Well, sorta! I've been so tired lately, my head is spinning! It doesn't help that Caytlynn wakes me up at 5am almost every morning for something! I just can't go back to sleep right away either - GRRRRR!

BTW, I'm PINK!!! Yeppers, it's a girl! I just noticed that I haven't updated my blog since I found out. There's no name that we can agree on yet, she may not have a name right away *shock*!!

CHA was fabulous!!! That's a whole nother entry! Products have been invading the house and I love it! Now, I just need more time to scrap!
Urban Lily will be taking over my house, litterally!!!! The stamps are here and most of the other products will be here this week. We're talking over 200 boxes of just paper!!! Wowie! I was lucky enough to score some paper from Renata at CHA and here's a LO I did with it :)

Robyn's kit, "Urban Passion" is phenomenal! I love it!! Here it is and a LO I did with it :)

Here is the September kit "French Kiss" designed by Kelly! Another awesome kit! I started a mini book with this one and will post later.

Tomorrow's the day!

We find out if I'm blue or pink! So, them we know if we can use Cain for the new baby OR fight over a girl's name! I know it's totally out there, but I love the name Cain Blaze. How cool would that kid be? Just as cool as Cullen Cole, I would imagine ;) lol

Now, I'm 22 weeks along! If the Dr. gave me an exact time, I would count down the seconds! I'm trying so hard to be patient, but the weather is getting warmer and I'm getting bigger *shock* I'll see how much bigger tomorrow :) Today it was 90 some degrees - yuck! I left in the morning to workout and stayed in the air conditioning for the rest of the day!

If you didn't notice, I added a header to my blog AND changed my title. Maybe I will blog more often now that i am happier with it? I guess we'll see!

Ok, here is the mess that I mentioned in my last post. This first picture is "the disaster" and the next picture is what it should look like. Not many people know, actually, I don't think anyone knows this... I am so anal about my kids clothes and closet! I have a
hard time keeping up with the dishes and keeping the house clean... heck, I am so disorganized that it is riduculous!!!!! BUT, there are a few things that I am completely anal about... first is my business, which I really HAVE to be organized about... and clothes for the kids. The clothes have to be stain and wrinkle free for my kids to wear them. I may keep a few old tattered and stained items for painting and playing, but for the most part, I always have to have them looking good. Most of the time they are dressed better than me! Oh, who am I kiding... they always look better than me!!! So, I hang 95% of their clothes and it's all organized by warmer stuff (just a few warm outfits for cold summer nights), dress up clothes, pants, shirts, outfits and good dresses. So now you know why I was so upset about this closet ordeal... still kinda sour about it!

My Great Aunt Catherine passed away today. She was always a little pistol! So, if you can imagine, someone close always dies when I'm pregnant. I didn't want to say it to anyone, but I knew it would happen. Hope there's not 2 funerals with this one!

On a much different note, Scrap-Tastic started selling kits!!! The DT Girlies are the designers and these kits are hot! This first kit was designed by Barb I can't stop playing with this first kit! Here are 2 LOs that I've made with it so far. There's a LO in the previous post too. I have included a larger image here and if you are interested in the kit you can purchase the kit here. That'll also give you a complete list of items you will receive. There's an add-on to the kit here. good stuff.

I'm about to pull my hair out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My 2 girlies have managed to make me cry first thing this morning. Let's start from the begining... I was so happy to sleep in! I actually woke up to my alarm clock - *shock*! Went to the girls bedroom and found over half of their clothes were in piles out of their closets! WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!! Today was going to be folding the girls clothes day. since it's so time consuming I spend a GOOD portion of the day organizing and hanging clothes. Well, now I am not motivated to do any laundry. none. zip. zilch! and everytime i think about it I feel ill and my heart starts going a little faster. what to do? i dunno! I don't even know what to do with them, they have been so naughty lately. grrrr. definately a sb page in the works, but i'd rather work on something else. Thanks for letting me vent :) :) :)
So, I decided to submit to pencil lines for their DT call and this is what I sent. since I have so much extra time on my hands ;) haha!!! Check out their blog, it rocks!

Nothing too exciting going on here. I've been subbing alot at the gym. I taught and took 7 classes this week. I'm really trying to hit it hard and stay in some type of shape while I'm preggo. my belly is getting big but my legs are toning up and i feel good! 11 more days and I will find out what we are having - yea!!!!! also, I hit the halfway mark on Monday! 20 weeks to go :) I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

becbeck out!

Catylynn's recital went off w/o a hitch...

uh, almost! At least I didn't forget anything! Uncle Terry, Aunt Jenny and Jess didn't make it in time - bummer! They missed her dance by about 5 minutes, stupid Sunday drivers! GRRRR! On a brighter note :) here are a few pics of my darling and my darling copy cat (Cass was imitating Caytlynn in most of the zillion pics I took!).
And the LO that got me booted from the designing like a star contest - boo hoo.

Excitment is in the air!

Right now I am loving every job that I currently do... mom, store owner and aerobics instructor. But, I've decided to take on another... another job where I will be working with product that I am truely passionate about. I am the new US distributor for Urban Lily. Yes, THE Urban Lily!!!! Could I love product any more than theirs??? nope. So, I will be getting my first shipment in 3-4 weeks! So, if you don't see me for a while... you know why! This is their new product that I will be working with. I also have it in my store on pre-order! Besides the new Urban Lily coming Scrap-Tastic, I have been busy ordering from other great companies... Basic Grey, American Crafts, Prima, Queen & Co, and Autumn Leaves to name a few. I'm so excited to kick off the new year with all of this fun schtuff :)
