BTW, The Mallan's were the origional owners of our house and there was even an owner in between us. The cop said that he ran all of our liscence plates and none of them came up with this address. Dena's car was out there so her's wouldn't have this address, but I"m not sure why the other 2 didn't. It's all a little bazzar and there are still questions unanswered. I think I will just leave it that way!
Here he is again looking so cute... *mumbles under breath "stinker!"*.

Let me tell you why this IS da bomb.... I love dimension! And I use the foam pop dots often and I double up the pop dots even more often since they squish. I can't stand that they squish! Scrap Dots does not squish!!!! I let this set overnight and I can push down and they still have dimension! Isn't that what pop dots are suppose to do??? Anyways, you can always add another dab if you need more dimension and build it up. but for my LO here, it has served it's purpose and it has served it well :) PS I snapped the pic when the glue was still wet, but it dries clear where as the pop dots aren't really clear...
Corey is still remodeling the bathroom. ARGH! He has been working so hard and so far it looks great! I can't wait til it's done.
I'll leave you all with a sneek peek to my next workshop, My Boy. It's an add-on to the Beauty Build-A-Frame Workshop. This is a must have if you have a boy! Let me know if you have any questions about this one!

I have so much exciting news that I almost forgot about the Peppermint Swirl Kit - YUMMY!!! Robyn Weatherspoon designed this kit and it has been so much fun to play with!
And a follow up on my last entry... no more bottles and no more baby car seat - yea!!! Cullen is doing so well with sleeping in his big boy bed... MUCH better than his 2 older sisters!!
Thanksgiving was nice, but Corey was sick and slept through the entire thing. Caytlynn had streep and 2 ear infections. Thanks to my MIL she was on her meds a day before and could somewhat enjoy Thanksgiving :)
Corey is in the midst of remodeling our bathroom on the main floor and it has been such a pain in the rear. The kids want to see everything that is going on and wants to play with Corey's helpers! Jay is doing the plumbing work. He even did lunch with us. Later in the day Cassidy asked if we could invite him over for a playdate - how cute! Anyways, I can't wait until it's done, I know it'll look stellar!!! Seeing as he put in new insulation I hope the shower won't freeze up this winter - lol!!!

Cullen was the first of all my kids to swallow a penny - yikes! Corey took apart the crib yesterday and he is now sleeping in a big boy bed. So far so good :) :) :) What prompted this is the other night, oh, it was the night that he swallowed the penny, he climbed out of his crib and we think he was climbing on his dresser and fell off, smashing his nose into a doll house. back up. Cullen took the doll house out of his closet that morning and I just didn't think to put it away. I certainly didn't think that he would be dresser diving/doll house smashing later that night!
I will teaching my first on-line workshop at my site - Scrap-Tastic starting at the end of the month. I am SO excited!!! Here is a teaser to wet your pallet along with a snippet of the product you will receive. This is a Build-A-Frame class and you will learn how to use Prima's Build-A-Frame Stamps. I love these stamps for so many reasons! You can find out why in the workshop ;) I will be creating 2 more add-on classes that will use the same stamps, My Boy and a Love theme.

I have been so busy lately my head is just spinning! New product is coming in almost every day and I just can't keep up... in a few weeks I will be receiving, literally, tons of product! And I do mean tons! I believe last realease there was about 3 tons of product. So, that will be fun to move down into my basement ;)
funny story... I was talking to my Grandma yesterday when I smelled something funky. I looked down at my baby girl to see her poop coming OUT OF HER DIAPER! WTH! I saw it! Her diaper was overflowing! It's not bad enough that she poops EVERY morning between 6 and 7 and the poop is overflows and all over the place... NO! She has to do it during the day too! good times.
I almost forgot to brag a bit :) :) :) I was asked to be on a Design team for Creative Charms. They have really cute embellies and I can't wait to start! I did order a few items for my store that I already have, you can check them out here.
Check out my cuties playing so nicely together.... it didn't last for long - lol
I am off to spend a few hours with my friend Lisa and her twins at Stone Fire Pizza. I haven't seen them in almost 2 years! Where does the time go?? I will be taking lots of pics :)
OH! I almost forgot.... Happy Birthday to me :) :) :) I am celebrating my 14th anniversary of my 21st birthday today *BIG grin*

Caytlynn got off the bus at 11:45 yesterday and with in the first hour of her summer vacation there were several time outs and at one point all 4 kids were crying!! Luckily things turned around!
On the very bright side, Caytlynn received a fabulous report from her teacher! She will be entering first grade next year, and right now she is at a begining second grade reading level! She got the award for most improved :) It seems as though every time her teacher sent a note or I talked to her she was amazed at Caytlynn's progress! I am so pround of her!!! We will be working hard this summer to excel her reading and writing skills. The best part about this is that she LOVES to read and write! In the past 24 hours she has written in her journal several times and has read at least 10 books! This is a pic from her graduation.
Anyone live in Southern WI or Northern IL??? I will be having a 12 hour crop in Mukwonago Wi on August 23. Let me know if you want the deets!

Everybody left with a completed book :)
I am selling these kits with detailed instructions, so if you are interested, please let me know!
Other Random things going on in my life...
Caytlynn and Cassidy had their dance recital a few weeks ago. Can you tell how much they love each other by the way they are in this pic? I wish they would act like this all of the time - haha!!!
Caytlynn will graduate from Kindergarten on Friday - YEA! I am so proud of her! She had early release today and read most of the afternoon. She reads ALL the time! Even when she was outside yesterday, she was reading most of the time. She loves to read!
Cullen turned 2 in April and has offically hit the terrible twos just recently. Any suggestions on dealing with the tantrums is greatly appreciated!!! ;) Most of the time he is sweetest little guy, but watch out if he doesn't get his way!
Cali Bear just turned 7 months and is cute as ever! She really knows how to get around without even crawling. She will be crawling very soon!
Last, but not least, here is one of my recent LOs... I used Glimmer Mist to "paint" the paintables!
Thanks for visiting me!
