good stuff.

It’s a stunningly beautiful day here… there are even big poofy clouds, which is rare for our az sky! I am working today in my studio with the doors open and a very nice, pleasant breeze blowing in… I have a couple more hours before the kids come home, the house is quiet-making it easy for me to concentrate. Lots needing my attention today…       new ads,  big picture classes, natl’ scrapbook day promotions… working on a card kit… only thing that would be better is if this room was clean and organized! About 2 weeks ago, I spilled a bowl of sequins on the floor of the closet. I haven’t cleaned it up. I am just keeping the door closed! LOL… it’s bad. I have been thinking about attacking the closet… I think I am just really going to have to gear myself up for it.
Over the weekend, I got some old pages back from something, and was so thrilled to get them back. I had sort of forgotten about them, but then when I saw them, was amazed at how they took me back! Cory is turning 8 next month, so seeing these photos of him as a 3 year old…just melted my heart! And this page… one of my favorites… of the night quincy was born. Man, I was so tickled to get a girl! And I felt to great to have that pregnancy OVER. (I can really relate to that  right now!) I thought I would share…
This is why I scrapbook! Because without these pages… I wouldn’t remember this.  Without trying to get better photos, I wouldn’t have these precious photos of cory… he hasn’t changed much… same little firecracker.
Ok
Back to work… just thankful for the reminder of why I love my hobby… how fast time goes by… and what is really most important… good stuff.

    I remember you talking about a kit you were going to put together and I want to make sure I didn’t miss a link. It’s REALLY hard to find your products around here and I’m hoping I can get my hands on the kit!! Thanks, Heidi!

    What gorgeous layouts!!! And like you, I have the windows open in my studio right now, a light little breeze coming through, music playing, and one huge mess to clean up!!! Enjoy your day! Thanks for sharing.

    what great pages,
    My scraproom is spotless for once which is very unusual.
    Maybe you will open the cupboard and the sequins will have magically cleaned themselves up, well you can hope anyway.
    Have a great day.
    🙂 kayla

    Capturing precious moments make scrapbooking a priceless hobby. These layouts are wonderful! I can’t wait to unpack my scrapbook room and get busy scrapping again. Today I unpacked most of the pantry, so progress is being made. I guess the family has to eat before I get to play. :o) http://jolenegeorge.blogspot.com/

    Hey, Heidi,
    The Dr Beck you mention in Quincy’s birth layout wouldn’t be Dr. Russell Beck, would it?
    When I lived in Mesa from 1990-1997 he was my OB and delivered 3 of my kids. Such a good doc.
    You do look great for having just given birth btw!
    Enjoy your loverly weather. That dry heat will be there before you know it!

    Heidi, question for you…when you look at your ‘baby’ 3 year old pics of Cory and it melts your heart, how do you feel now that he is grown?
    I was looking at my Jack’s pics when he was a newborn and I burst into tears and longed for the infant days–sleeplessness and all of it. He is my only one.
    I love seeing him grown and his new terror phase is cute in retrospect.
    Looking for some advice from those mom’s out there that have experienced the longing for the baby/infant days and how they get through it.
    Thanks to all who help out. email me at ginagerbi@hotmail.com. thank you.

    Ahhh, love love love the layouts. So darn cute. My OB is Dr Tutt, but I’ve had Dr Beck do appts on me before. Though I deliver C-Section, I will never have those precious “first moments” pics. So good for you to have them and to document them. Thanks for sharing.

    glad to know your studio gets out of control too. I will come and help you straighten and clean yours if you come and help me straighten and clean mine.

    How sweet! 🙂 Both layouts are adorable, as usual! 🙂

    That layout of Quincy in the hospital – made me go to my son’s baby box and dig out all his hospital stuff – his little cap (with blood and, I’m sure, other nastiness inside!), his little bracelet, the card with his footprint, and all the pictures and cards.
    It’s only been three years and I already forget a lot of it. I love how you did a timeline on your page. I’d like to do that for Jack, too. I’m sure he’ll want to know ALL the details someday soon!

    I remember that layout hanging up in Memory Lane, and thinking “I wonder who SHE is.” A lifetime ago. It’s good to see it.

    Heidi, your blog is so sweet! And your LO’s ROCK! I’ve always been impressed by your work…and I think I’ve said that before in other comments.
    However, I have an issue…lol. I am hardpressed to find ANY of your products here in Georgia! Of course I haven’t checked every SB store in the state, you and I both know gas is too expensive for all that..hee hee. But in the area where I live, there’s VERY little of the cute black & white packaging with the sweet little logo on it. That makes me sad!!!
    Please, Please, PLEASE…send some of your stuff to little ole Cobb County Georgia! More specifically, Powder Springs, Ga…and even more specific…MY house :-).

    I love your layouts. The one of Quincy’s birth really moves me. I love the clean lines and your handwriting. I am taking your AYTR class and I am so grateful for God putting it in my path and helping me make it a reality. You are awesome and I am grateful for you sharing your talents, ideas, thoughts, feelings and being such a down to earth woman.

    These two pages are fantastic.
    There are a good gift for your daughter: 0) I like a lot your way to make scrap. Here in Italy still the scrapbooking is not very diffused unfortunately… I would like if I “made a jump” in my blog. I adore this hobby but I am still at the begin!!! Last week have ordered your book “Love your handwriting” and I hope to can read it soon for improving my journaling!
    Regards.
