And my news is…

I wanted to wait until the news had been released at Digital Candy before I posted the news here.

Due to Heidi’s stepping down at Digital Candy, Rick and I have purchased Digital Candy and will be taking over as the owners. Heidi will of course be staying on in the community, but Rick and I will be running the day to day opperations.

I am soo excited to be taking on the new venture and can’t wait to get started.

Be on the look out for a designer call in the next week or so and all of the other goodies that are going to be happening!

If you have no clue what website I’m talking about, check us out www.digitalcandy.ca

I have some big news..

And no.. I’m not pregnant.

In the next couple of days be looking for a big announcement from me about new business venture. Moms’ cove didn’t turn out so well for me, but this new venture is going to be a big move for Rick & I and I hope we can have a lot of sucess with it. This will become my new baby and I can’t wait to share the news with you all!

Been a while.. opps!

I have been busy the last few days, zoo trip, new dog, running errands, new dog, scrapping, working on Moms’ Cove, new dog. *laughing* did you get that not so subtle hint? we got a new dog, he’s a 7 month old boxer mix we call Buddy. He’s a really good dog, except he’s petrified of our cats. I know.. pretty funny huh? He sits and whines when they look at him and runs away from Pumpkin if he walks too close to him. Both Oreo & Pumpkin are ganging up on him – one will drink out of his water dish, and hiss when he gets close, or when you feed him his dinner, they run to his food bowl first and of course he won’t do anything about it, so they have been eating puppy food too. Pumpkin seems to think he rules the roost I guess and is trying to “break in” the puppy. I can’t wait until they all get over it and finally become “friends” it’t not like either one of the cats has never been around a dog before, but Buddy won’t stick up for himself and bark at them and “put them in their place”.  He’s a 27lb dog, who obviously towers over them, but yet runs away yelping if they turn around and hiss. The joys of having animals! I will try and get some good pictures of our new “addition” to share with you.

Monday we headed to the zoo with Tat & her son. We had a good time.. it was nice to spend a whole day with my best friend, as we haven’t managed to do that in a long time. We went and visited the dinosaur exhibit and the whole time we were walking thru it Missy was saying “they are just pretend.. they are just pretend”. The last time Rick & I took her she was 2 1/2 and they scared her.  Poor thing, I have pictures of her sobbing in front of the T-Rex. She did much better this time, but wouldn’t stand near the T-Rex again, she just ran past him. lol.

I’m hoping to add a new “category” to my blog, which will consist of the book’s I’ve read/reading. I have joined a book club as well as trying to get one started on Moms’ Cove and so my library card is getting a good work out at the moment. I am also trying to cross some books off of my “to be read” list. So I may blog every now and then about the book I’m reading. I just finished a really good book (if anyone wants to read it.. it’s here collecting dust) called “The Pact” – by Jodi Picolt. I read it for a book club on another message board that I’m a member of and really enjoyed it. It was a little slow going, but a good read none the less. I’m now working on a “new” book called “First Impressions” by Jude Deveraux. It’s set in North Carolina (yay my favorite place) I’m only up to chapter 3, but so far soo good. I’ll let you know how it goes from here.

I applied for a digital scrapbooking “Creative Team” (A CT as it’s refered to) and I’m REALLY hoping I made it. This would be my first one, but would be something I would completely enjoy doing, I love doing the cross stitch stuff I do for Dimensions – I test cross stitch kits for them before they release them to check the pattern, thread counts etc and LOVE IT (I’ll post some pics of the stuff I’ve done for them too in the near future). I will probably find out in the next couple of days when she posts the results on her blog. so fingers crossed. WOW.. so another new category for the blog.. my craft capers. lol.. I like really like that name, so I might just keep it!

As you can see, that will keep me pretty busy. Reading, cross stitching, scrapping, PLUS Moms’ Cove & the kids. I don’t know if I have enough hours in my day! lol. Adam is now starting to nap on a schedule (Horray for that one!) and of course that is making life a little easier.  So I’m hoping to have time to accomplish the other things I want to get done during those nap times. I’ve been working on Moms’ Cove & scrapping in the afternoons & after both kiddo’s are in bed. I’ve also been making myself go to bed before midnight – which is hard cuz I always think of other things I “should” be doing. So I’m now heading to bed around 10ish so I can read for an hour and then of course lights out.

Well, I should probably take advantage of Adam napping and get a few things done around the house like *ew* folding laundry. I will later post my latest scrap creations I’ll probably do that tonight.

Who knew?!?

Who knew I could start a new website – which isnt’ completed yet, and still manage to have 39 users, 1069 posts and seem to be taking off? I have to thank my friend J, for all of her help getting this project off the ground running. Now if I can just get my “store front” concept to take off I’ll be as happy as a pig in dirt! Not so much for the making $$ factor, to be able to provide Mom’s with a place to sell their crafts etc. and not have to worry about outrageous fee’s like with E-bay. I’ll check back in a month or so once I have the store-front’s “live” and let you know if my projected idea is working out!

I honestly don’t see the site making much $$ for the first year, but you never know, the site might take off once the store is up and running and J & I really start working on making the site keyterm friendly to draw in google and other search engines. Fingers crossed it goes off with out a hitch.

On another note, why is it bad stuff happens to good people? My BFF and her hubby came over last night for dinner and to hang out because they found out Wednesday that her hubby has some kind of blood disorder. He’s hoping it’s a mis-diganosis and not what they are predicting it is, but you just never know. If he does have the disorder (we should know for definite tomorrow – hopefully) he’ll have to go for weekly blood draws and go on blood thinners and I’m sure a big round of testing. I feel so bad for him, as he has an anxiety about medical stuff – he turns green just mentioning shots, let alone having to go thru all of this on top of it. I wish there was more I could do to help them besides make them come over and stuff them full of pizza 🙂 I know just being there and helping with their son as well as supporting them both will be the best “help” I can be, but I wish I could do more for them. I hate needles and being poked and prodded myself, but I’d even take one or two of his needle pokings for him if I could, just to help. Fingers crossed it’s not what they are thinking it is and his doctor got this all wrong. The worst part of it all is his doctor told him what this was and that he had it and then instead of being a doctor (something you’d think they’d do) told him to go home and look it up on the internet. Umm.. hello.. how much information can you seriously get from the net. Who knows if half of it’s even true. When I looked it up this yesterday, the first thing that pops up is Wikapedia, which we all know is user based info. Who knows if it’s actually factual with everything.

Well it’s almost 5am, and I should probably go and see if I can get an extra hour or two’s worth of sleep before my kiddo’s are up and demanding me to be completely awake! I miss the days when sleeping in was until noon, now I’m lucky if we get to 8:30!
