...what a week!!!

I can´t belive it´s Friday again!!! I have not been blogging for the whole week. Why? Just to busy!!! And what a week this has been!!!

I have been workin more than usual in the shop, because last week was a traid fair and now this week everything had to be put back in the store...that always means lots for work for me!!! But this time I got a little present for my boss ( for feeding her cats while she was away): she brought me back some Heidi Swapp gost shapes, I have been loonging to get my hands on!! Cant wait to try them out!!!

But this was not all this week .... oh no!!! Since it is the last week before Easter break for my kids there was tones of test for my son: English, French and Math!! Each day there was a different subject we both had to work for..... you wonder why I have to work for them, too??? Well I was wondering about that, too, but if I do not help him with it it´s just a desaster!!! he still is my little baby and needs his mama for sertain things, I guess. He will be 13 next month ( wohhh!! Is this really that loong ago?), but that´s not to big to need help....;-)

With my daughter I have done a lot of reading and after all the things going on with her dyslexia, we ( especially me!) needed to cool down and relaxe a bit! Stress it our worst enimy!!!

And you probably guess it: if you are under stress you make mistages and I made a very hurtfull one on Tuesday: after learning Math with Luis for hours I was in a big hurry to get Dinner prepared and took down a big glas bowl from the shelfs. Unfotunatelly this bowl had a crack for a look time already, but on that day it decided to give up and broke just in the moment I took it down. I spare you the details, but there was quite a bit if blood and I cut myself quite bad in two fingers. Luckly on the left hand, so I still can do most of the things I need to do...

Oh, and something else: I just sent off the second entry for a design team search in this week. I wount tell you to whom, I am superstitious about that, but I hope you wil wish me luck!!!!

Tomorrow I will draw the winners of my three little give aways, so if you have not done so, it´s still time to leave a comment...;-)

Okay, to get ready to go to ths shop.....!! Wish you all a nice, relaxing weekend and lots of time for your leisure....well I can do with some of that, too!!!

...back from the Weekend....

I am back from the South. I spent the weekend with my family to celebrate my Dads 60th birthday. We had a great time, but I am very tiered now, too. Spring seams to have finally come and the air is getting lovely outside. I just needed some uplift today. There seams to be so much work and I am trying so hard to get recognition, but nothing happens....;-((
So this will be the tape with the motto for me now!!! My mantra tape...;-)))
Have a good week!!!

Why do I scrap?

The Journaling reads:
...I scrap, because I can. It´s fun and a creative outlet for me. I love the journaling part of it and love to work with photos. It´s so good to have recorded memories of my kids, my family, what I do, my live. I just love it!
The German writing says: "Tracing your owm magic: to summon new energy through mental and physical flexibility."

PP: Rouge de Garance, BasicGrey, Tim Holtz for DO
Decoratice Paper: Japanese Papers scraps, found paper scraps
Tag (with houses): KI Memories
Stamps: Image Tree
Computer font: Texas Hero downloaded from the Internet

I only have one problem with that: Who are you??? I really would like to know!!!
What draws you to my blog and what would you like to see more about??? I think I need to tease you a bit so I will find out! Because most of you are to shy to leave a comment...but that´s what helps me to find out about YOU!!!!
So I will offer you something: Leave me a comment to this post, lets say until end of March, and tell me something about who you are, what you like to see on my blog and what your intrests are.
I will sent out three freebies to three of you in April. I can not say what it will be, but if you tell me what intressts you I try to find something that fits...;-)

258V ususal!There are lots of things going on again: lots of work in the shop, faily is visiting and I have a tough thing going on in my mind: my daughter was diagnosed Dyslexic!!! I know there are lots of thing that can be done to help her, but what really freaks me out about this is that I am dyslexic myself and I thought I have all sorted out for myself.... but now I realize that is not so! All the old sh.... is coming up again and I know this will be a hard time coming up for us! Who will I be able to teach my daughter something I am not very good at myself??? She does not want to do any reading and writing...but there will be no way around it.
As it always goes I have been reading a novel in which there is a very talented girl, but she is dyslexic. She is gong to a school where one of here teachers is also dyslexic, and this teacher says it is a gift not a handicap. That way to see it was completly new to me, and so I did some research an the internet. And I realy found someone who says its a gift not a handicap:
Ronald Davies. This guy is dyslexic himself and he developed this program to correct the difficulties with reading and writing for people who are dyslexic. I read his book and there are a lot of things that do sound very good to me, and I can relate to them. But I am still not sure if this is all just a rip off, or if it is a really good thing. Does anyone of you have experience with the Davis Program???
Well besides that of course we also go the usual way with lots of talks to my daughters teachers, doctors and programs...... oh my gosh...that I have to go through all this again!!!

Well....Friday again!

..... slowly I am getting back to normal. I am still not feeling at my best, but I just cant rest any longer. I have been back to work yesterday and today I was trying to get a couple of things organized, that have been sitting on my desk far too long already!
But I am still taking everything very easy, since I do not want to go back to bed again!

I finished a couple of handmade cards, that I had promised sweet Emily in Canada ages ago...she probably thinks I have completly forgotten her. But that is not the case!! Live is just trying to get a lot out of me and I am still not at my goal for this year: to get all the old comitments off my desk and just work in the now!
I am also still true to my word for this year (which is " DARE"" in case you have forgotten...;-) ) and I dare to show my work and, yes, I also dare to be rejected!!!! But I try not to let this get to close to me .... one day I know I will find the right space and get my work noticed!
