About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

Gabby Scrappers Weekend

I’m in Weatherford this weekend at Covered Bridge Inn for my biannual scrapbook retreat, a weekend full of wonderful food, creativity, laughter and fellowship with friends.  Pat, the owner of Covered Bridge, is an excellent cook and I’m certain that I’ve gained a couple of pounds.

I’m working on my second digital scrapbook, a compilation of my blog and scrapbook pages from 2009.  My goal is to make it through April 2009 before the end of the weekend.

Dede and I are learning about custom designing blogs using Photoshop from Cari, the digital scrapbook expert in the group.

Dede, Cari, Shannon and I shared a room and we were some of the last people to go to sleep last night.  I went to bed around 2:00 a.m. and Dede, Cari and Connie were up until 3:30 a.m.

We had a Chinese gift exchange and I pulled #1 so I got to make the last pick of the night.  I walked away with an adorable bag, note cards and a Michaels gift card. 

I’m already looking forward to the retreat in October.
