HAPPY 2010!!

Hello All!! Wow... I can't believe I haven't updated in a month!! There has been a LOT going on in our family, but things to finally seem to be turning around!

Long story short... we had to leave the house we were staying in with friends on VERY short notice. It was not a good situation, and happened really fast!! We had 48 hours to pack up all of our things and get them into storage.

After that, we stayed with DH's mom for a week, but that got expensive having to drive the girls back and forth to school. So, working with a local, federally funded angency, we ended up in a local hotel a little closer to the girls' schools. Well, we've been here now almost 3 weeks!!

The agency we have been dealing with also helps families get back on their feet and into homes/apartments and during the past month, we have been searching for housing. So, after much prayer and turning it over to God, we are finally scheduled to move into our new home this coming weekend!!

It's a great little double-wide modular home in a great neighborhood! It's close to friends and in a great school district! For now, we'll be renting, but this particular home also has an option to assume the mortgage, so we hope to work toward that goal!

I'll take some pics when we are there later this week!!

And now, I actually have a few crafty things to share!! Before we had to pack everything up, I had finished a couple of layouts for the Reminsce Design Team Call. I didn't make the team, but I'm happy with both layouts!

Both of these layouts use almost all Reminsce products and I added Prima flowers and some bling, and of course used my Cricut!! :)

This is a card I created for a sketch challenge contest at Let's Capture Our Memories... and it won! I used MME holiday papers & Kaiser pearls.

Well, I guess that's it for this post. I'm sorry for not posting sooner, but I hope to be back to regular scrapping & posting soon!!!
Have A Great Day!!!

Robin, I am happy that things are starting to look up for you and your family. I know last year has been rough for a lot of families. I hope this one brings you all that you wish for.

On a brighter note, your projects are amazing. I like the flowers and things that you use.

God Bless~
