Happy as can be

I havn't been blogging often as i had said that i would i just can't find what to blog about. But i do today. I have been real busy lately. I'm a proud Grandma of 3 recently born Bebe's (babies) 3 wks ago my son had a baby boy. And Friday Oct 1 one of my older daughter had a baby boy also and then Tuesday Oct 5 my other daughter had a little girl her first i thought she would never give me a grandbaby. She's 26yrs and the oldest daughter that had the boy she's 27 and this is her 3rd. And my other son his 20yrs his first also. So now that makes 7 GB and i couldn't be more Happy 3 all at the same time. But they all know that they can not call me Grandma . All of my GB have to call me Mame which is Mommy in spanish. No calling me Granny. LOl.

Home at last

I'm home at last after a 6 wk vacation. It wasn't what i had in mind but at least i got to go see my brother's in TX. My plans where goingto MX but it didn't work out i needed a Pass port to get across. And i don't have one as of know working on it. I had to go get lots of info on my mother. She has been passed away 15yrs . So just trying to dig for info was trying. So hopefully they will accept what i got. And give it to me.

I'm glad to be back home. One thing that i did enjoy doing was being able to return to the place that i grew up in. It has been 28yrs since i have been back. I was able to get ahold of 4 of my best friends in school; and that was so awsome.

Just a note

Just a note to let all my friends taht i'm doing just fine and getting ready for the summer. I will have less time to create as kids are home and off from school. I will be spending alot of my time with them and we are going out of the country to go visit my in-laws for the summer also. I know that i have not been posting as i had promised at the being of the year i just didn't know that it would be so hard. As to not knowing what to post regularly. But i guess i can post projects that i do and show everyone my projects. I have done a few Mini Albums that i didn't take picture of our took a Video of. I do have to get more on the ball but i'm afraid that it will not be till after the summer when the kids are back in school. I hope that you all have a wonderful summer and take alot of picture's to make LO's with and Mini's.

I'm stuck on a war zone today and have been for a few days if you all MOM"S know what i mean with a couple of sick kids at home a 3yr & a almost 2yr olds and have many swaps that need my attention also that i need to get finished ASP. Being a MOM is one of the hardest job's out there and the sad thing is we don't get paid for it in $$$ but we do get paid back in HUGS & KISSES. And that in it's self is priceless to us loving MOMS. I love my children but they do drive me up the sometimes. LOL I find that doing most of projects at night when they are sleeping but some night I'm just to tried to do anything but hit the bed also when they do . But normally i don't go to bed till 11-12pm every night. They go to bed at 9pm so i try to clean up a little when they go to bed then if i have time do my fun stuff which is scrapbooking, crocthing, or relaxing with my the love of my life yes ladies DH. He works long hrs so i try to spend time with him also that's what keeps the marriage going . You all know that is another job we have is keeping our partner happy right. So ladies tell me what is the most important thing in your life and how do you deal with war zones and try to keep any if any sanity in your home and find time to enjoy your hobbies.

Here is an Accordin mini that i did for a swap i used Vintage Photo distressed ink by Tim Holtez and used paper by Webster's collection. I used a regular file and scored it at 4 inches to create the flaps that folde up to stick your tags in. Then open your file and fold each side to the center and gives you 4 panels. Then fold it as an accordin and ink up all the edges and decorate it as you like on both sides. The flower i made with the same paper.
