jan kit sneak peek

hi all, just stopping by to give ya a sneak peek at january's kit artic is so cool!(no pun intended!) and there are still some december kits left--get them while they last at click on shop our products then on memory works express.
my christmas prayer: God of compassion, there is such a hole in my heart! Today should be a day of joy, but I feel only emptiness and loss. While the world celebrates around me, I remember Christmas celebrations of the past and I long to have my loved one with me. I bring my sorrows to you, Lord, like some odd gift of the magi and dump them at your feet. In my blind tears I wonder if anyone can possibly understand the depth of my sadness. I know, you can. You sent your son to be with us in our deepest sorrows and I know that even though I might not feel it now, you are here with me, grieving with me, caring for me in my sadness. Dearest lord, help me to turn to the one I miss so much today and speak. Help me heal the loss of our parting and help me not to regret the things I didn't say. Sorrow tears at my heart, but today I ask that my loss soften my heart and make me more compassionate with everyone I meet, so that my loss may become a gift to others. merry christmas mom! we miss ya!

yup your on the right blog!lol!

hi all, yup you are on the right blog! lol----i felt like giving my blog a old fashion christmas make-over. i think the change is refreshing. i was getting bored with the old template! well, since i spent most of the day messing around with christmas lights and shopping - i guess you can say i am in the holiday spirit.hope this day also finds you in the holiday spirit!just stopping on to share 2 lo's i made this week and a little giveaway i have for ya's....oh! and if you love twilight---go to to download free twilight fonts for your hybrid scrapping :)----so cool! this is my dd a couple of years ago in my mom and dads pool ok, let me explain this lo to ya..cause you are probably like what are they doing!....first of all men--- why do they do such silly things!lol!---we were at a party at my bil's house(in the summer) and their living room tv. broke and football was on. so instead of all the men going inside the teenagers room and watching it there....because it was a nice day ,they put the t.v. to the window and pulled up the patio chairs and watched it from!!!still don't see the logic in that but i had a blast scrapping it! and now back to the holiday spirit about a little giveaway?!'ll like it if ya like to stamp :) about(top picture) 4 packs of studio g clear stamps(for scrapbook pages,cards,altereds) and a flocked cover mini journal(great for altering)?...if it sounds good to you...all you have to do is post about my giveaway on your blog and come here and post your link then i will pick a winner next week. well, i have to go catch some zzz's now. so ttys! jen t.
