PostHeaderIcon Goals for 2010

Well 2009 has not been kind to our family and 2010 is staring us down pretty hard.
I make that statement but I can count the blessings God has given us..they are so obvious they almost smack me in the back of my head. But it is ending with my husband not working in the industry that has provided for us. A member of our church family is letting him work (BIG BLESSING) with him until he can get a job making the money we have based our bills around again. I sit here and ask why...but then I think of Job from the Old Testament. God let the Devil test his faith by taking all of material belongs, disfiguring him and he lost his family. By no means do I want to be tested like Job, but sometimes I think it's a test in Faith. That to just keep our Faith will keep our Hope that we will pull through these hard times. So I am hoping the New Year will bring us some good news about a job and much better luck.
I never try to make resolutions but this year I am sorta...but calling them GOALS. I have joined the Art Journal Caravan with Tangie Baxter from Scrapbookgraphics. It's a 52 week journey if you start at the beginning that I am excited to start. I am also going to attempt to do a version of Project 365. Not sure how that will evolve but I am positive that it will turn out just FABULOUS. And the other goal is to go to the gym. Yes, I am joining the masses with that goal. I have actually had a gym membership all year but with all the time I have needed to care for my Papaw I have put myself on the backburner. So I am putting ME first again. Because if I don't start taking care of myself again, I won't be around for my kids or grandbabies for that matter. And I want to do more digiscrapping. I ventured into this area from tag making this year. So I am leaving the tagging world and entering the digiscrapping world whole-heartedly.
What else am I doing in 2010, oh yeah, I am taking a class over at Jessica Sprague's on better ways to use a Wacom Tablet. My Mom gifted me with that class when it was first announced since I already had a tablet. That should be fun.
Today I am just piddling about the house. I gotta dust and wash some laundry. I really need to head to WalMart for a few things....my hubby would appreciate some groceries I am sure..lol.
So let me jet outta here for now.

PostHeaderIcon Happy Day After Christmas

We made it through the holiday season with no major catastrophes. Getting here though was a different story. I had been sick for what seemed like most of the month with NyQuil being my very best friend. Then it seemed like one thing after another would pop up and I did not do any Christmas shopping until the 24th. I don't ever wanna do that again!
I did get to bring my Papaw (from the Nurshing Home) for the better part of the day and to go get my baby brother's kiddos to at least snap a picture of them with their Great Grandpa. They are too young to ever probably remember it but I am hoping the photo will be something they might treasure in the future.
Even though I was ever so exhausted at the end of the day and planted myself on the sofa it was a wonderful time of love and laughter and eating until we were all stuffed.
Today I am relaxing in the PJ's and flipping through all the photos and sorting which ones I will scrap. The best thing about your photos is that they can take you right back to the very moment those smiles were created.
So...I am off of here for now and getting back to my pics.

PostHeaderIcon A different train of thought Hi-jacked my blog

I finally slowed down long enough to pop in and blog a bit. I have had no mojo for signature tags so it's back to my other love. Digiscrap. Nothing like the smiling faces of your babies to make your heart sing. It also helps that Sweet Shop Designs is giving away a template a day until the 15th. Check out their blog for the details. Here's a couple of LO's I did this last week using a couple of them and kits from SSD.
*I am not on any of their Creative Teams..I just like their goodies.*

This was created using Dec 1st's freebie and the kit Stand by Misty Cato. This was created using using the Dec 2nd freebie and the kit Santa Season Kit by Melissa Bennett.

Scrapping has really put me in the holiday mood and refocused me on how much I really am blessed with my family and faith. We are working on creating some new holiday traditions this year. We tried to bring our family(brothers and children) together over Thanksgiving but unfortunately it seemed that every negative thing that could happen...well DID! So with a slight parting of family values, we are refocusing on our immediate family in an effort to convey the true meaning of the holdiay season. To celebrate the birth of Jesus, to be kind and compassionate to those less fortunate (and to bring that thru to the rest of year) and to be thankful that we have one another.
So for this year my big new tradition will be to bake a birthday cake with my daughter. Everyone likes to have a birthday cake, right? Well since this is Jesus's..we will do one in his honor. For gifts, I will get each of my family member a new Christmas ornament of a faith based nature that will be given to each of them to be added to the tree for next year.
So I challenge you. Are you stuck in a rut? Do you feel pulled in 40 different directions during the holiday season. Well why don't ya step back, refocus and savor the small moments that God has given you. Create a new tradition or throw some of the old ones out that just drive ya insane.
Peace, Love and Joy to All!

PostHeaderIcon Hah---She's Alive and Kickin'!

It's been over a month since I have blogged. Well, real life happens and you just get side-tracked. On October 30th, my Papaw fell for the 3rd time in a week here at home with me. I knew then that he could not continue to live with me. This is on top of his progressing dementia and alzheimer's. He was very active at night and I could not stay up with him 24/7 as what it turned out that was needed for him. With a heavy heart he is now living in the Retirement Home here in our town. One day he understands that he is there to stay and other days he doesn't and cries to come home. Or I should say to go back to live with Ricky's parents (my hubby). The sad part of that is that he was living with me and my hubby....and the people he is referring to are deceased. =( It's definitely and adventure and not a boring visit when I go see him. I am seriously contemplating keeping a journal of all his stories and my adventures during our visits. On the up side..he does have his good days and does know who the family is when they come. On the 12th, the Retirement home had a Thanksgiving dinner for the residents and their families. We both ate until we were as full as ticks.

This Friday he has day surgery. I am still trying to sort out how I am going to meet him at the hospitol at 6:30 and then get my daughter to school all at the same time. It's looking like my daughter will just have to get up a bit earlier...well a lot earlier than normal. She doesn't want to go to her fathers the night before =. It will work out I am sure, I have put it in God's hands to make sure everything works out where I am where I need to be when I need to be there.
On the up side...I am getting back in gear with my psp and digiscrapping. I am excited for the holiday season..it will give me lots of scrapbook photo opportunities and tons of reasons to bake all kinds of sweet goodies.
And on that note...I am off of here and will be back soon with a goodie and definitely with a new tag tutorial.

PostHeaderIcon Freebie Photo Masks

I finally decided to "find some ME time" today and blow the dust off of my PSP and the trusty old Photoshop. I got the majority of a tag made I will finish and write a tut for. An awesome new class started today over at the Jessica Sprague forum. I will definitely make time for it. My Mom purchased the Beautiful Evidence class for me and I have done ZERO of it. Thank goodness the classes are available forever for ya's. I was also going to work on a scrap layout but instead ended up making a couple of photo masks...my first ones I might add. I think they are pretty, maybe you will too. I also made some smaller jpeg versions of them for PSP'rs.
I hope you find some use for them and enjoy!

PostHeaderIcon Updating-Been MIA

I have been majorly MIA on everything internet related....you don't realize how much of your life you put into a bit of technology until you don't have time for it. I moved my Papaw in with us and to say it's been a bit of an adjustment would be an understatement. It's actually not him that I am adjusting to ..it's his little dog..a bouncy bit of fluff from the terrier family..I so need some Xanex or something. I have 3 indoor cats and we just don't bounce around like silly putty with fur. And let's top it off that I can't stand a dog inside the house...uggghhh...sorry all you dog luvers out there...So to combat the nerves my hubby is building a fence around the front of the house. It's all definitely worth it though..I wouldn't have my Papaw anywhere's else. I feel that God has given me and my family this opportunity to help him and we do it with a joy in our hearts.
So until things get more sorted and scheduled with home health, dr.'s appts...etc..I will just put my hobbies on the back burner.

PostHeaderIcon New CT Position - New Tag Tutorial - Update on my Grandpa

It's been an exhausting week with my Grandpa. Not that he has been hard to take care of but just that I am a bit paranoid with him being at the rehab/retirement center. I just want to make sure everyone is being good to him. I must say..I am very impressed with the care he has been given. It's not the Ritz but everyone has been more than helpful, kind and compassionate. Today me and my Mom met him at his dr's appt. It all went well and then we took him to lunch. He really enjoyed that and so did I actually. I love him to pieces! I will go back before he goes to bed to see how the rest of his day went.
More good news for me...
I was accepted to be on the Creative Team for AMI....I think I am still in shock! not to mention how excited I am! So if you get a chance..go give them a peek.
So naturally my new tut showcases AMI goodies. =)
It's called Coy and can be found Here.
It uses a fantastic scrapkit by KatNKDA called Tropical Obsession and the art of Angela Newman. Both may be purchased at AMI.

PostHeaderIcon My Grandpa

To say that things have been busy would be an understatement.
My Brother had some troubles with the mother to his children and as a family we all came together to support him as needed. My Grandfather had surgery to remove some cancer spots on his nose last Friday. He was supposed to stay in the hospitol after the surgery but some idiot decided he should be sent home. That left my Mom trying to get him to rest...easier to move a mountain. Anyhow..they put NO type of bandage on his wounds and my Mom left him alone for 30 mins and came back to a mess. The wound was bleeding and she could not get it to stop. So back the ER and she got him admitted for some 24 hour around the clock care and fixed it up where he would go to rehab until he recovers. Me and her have been splitting the staying with him. Monday she had to go back to work and I took him to rehab yesterday. So far so good. My day yesterday was spent getting him all that he needed. I have been to see him today and will go back about 7ish to take him another blanket and pillow. I hate him being there but he won't stay with anyone and the staff is super nice and you are allowed to visit 24 hours a day.
My kitchen is calling my name to come do some dishes..so maybe with things settle in a day or so I will back with some goodies for ya.
Have a fantastic day!

PostHeaderIcon Merging my blogs

It's been a whole week since I posted..Oh MY!!!! I have not meant to neglect ya's. But ya know how real life can be and how it can throw ya some curve balls. I have dealt with school starting up (way too freakin early IMO) for my daughter, back to school nights and a family emergency with my baby brother. It has been INSANE!!!! I am standing in line for my straight jacket as we speak..lol!
What all else...oh yeah..I am taking this wicked cool photography class taught by Candice Stringham over at the Jessica Sprague forum. I am also enrolled and taking another class called Brush Abilities..way way awesomeness. I love my PSP and taggin' but my other digital passions include digiscrappin and photoshop.
I have also come to the conclusion that I don't want to keep up with 2 blogs so I will be combining my digiscrappin/gossip one with my taggin one...which is here...so I warn ya's now...you will get more chit-chat from me. =D
That's all about me today..I will be adding more of my fave links to the sidebars..be sure to check them out..ya might find something ya like.

Good Morning Everyone! It's the last official day of summer vacation for my daughter. I don't know who is dreading the first day of school more..Me or her. It's still only 9 am here. I think I will let her sleep for another hour and then go get her up, otherwise she will sleep till the crack of noon. =o We need to go pick up a few packages of loose leaf paper. I looked into getting some yesterday at our local Walmart but at $1.50 a package..I passed. I want paper that is priced at 50 cents or there abouts..So it's off to Shreveport today.

PostHeaderIcon Recommending UnzipThemAll->Freeware

I got a new laptop about 3 months or so ago and have had the hardest time making the transition to not only from desktop to laptop but from Windows XP to Vistsa 64. First off I was very disappointed it would not run Eye Candy 3 >BIG SAD FACE<>
My other big heartbreak and aggravation has been unzipping files. On my XP I could unzip multiple files at once and even on my hubby's Vista desktoop I could get the fly out menu to unzip my multiple files into their own folders. NOT so on here. So I have been downloading stuff to my external drive and taking it to my desktop and unzipping there. Just a pain in the rear. Well NOT ANYMORE!!! I have found this handy little FREEWARE program that unzips multiple files for ya lickety split if you download alot. I say found..it was recommended by someone else to unzip files in another forum but did not impart any info on it. So I just took a chance and tried. I am glad I did.
All ya do is locate the folder that you have your zips/rars in. It automatically detects them and pops them into a list for unzipping. NO work your your part at all. Click start and it it goes to work for ya. Easy Peasy!
I went the the VIEW>Options button and set mine up to delete the zip for me. That is just my preference.
I LUV IT! I LUV IT! I LUV IT!
Did I say I Luved It! LOL!
It's called UnzipThemAll and will unzip zips and rar files...even the pw protected ones.
You can find it here.
Have a Fantastic Hump Day!

PostHeaderIcon A Mask for your tagging pleasure

Well for the life of me it seems I can't find the mojo to tag. So I am just gonna wait it out and when inspiration returns I will pop out some pretties..hopefully anyhow. On top of that, we got adopted by a stray kitten a few months back. I have worked very hard to get him to trust me enough to let me pet him. Well I did it and can even put him in my lap for a few seconds. He loves his head and belly rubbed tremendously. Well that little bugger did a number on me Wednesday night. While on the phone to my hubby, I decided to sit out on the porch and pet the cat. Apparently he didn't think I was petting him enough and bit the fire out of me on my right hand.
All four of his longest teeth right into the meat of the top of my hand right where it's really meaty below the thumb. And on top of that...the little bugger didn't let go right away. But when he did..the blood was gushing a bit (sorry if that grossed ya out) Now it's infected. I took all the precautions and added antibiotic ointments to it. It's some better but if does not continue to get better, I suppose I will go to the quick care office and see if they can look at it. Goodness knows I don't wanna get some weird ailment from it. I watch too much Mystery Diagnosis on the TV...LOL..my imagination can get quite wild if I let it.
Anyhow...I dunno what prompted that story. I don't usually ramble. I have a stash of masks on my desktop and I was too lazy to go get them and upload them from there..so I fiddled around in psp and made this to share. Memorial Day is coming soon, so maybe you will find a good use for it.
So Enjoy! And Download Here.

PostHeaderIcon Tag Templates #9 and #10

It's been a loooonnngggg week. I had in my plans to have a computer free weekend last Friday, Sat, and Sunday. Well I got my wish..plus a few days. Tornados and straight line 70 mph winds did the trick and I was without power until last night.
It wasn't being without power that really bothered me...I just wanted to take a bath. I could have went to my Mom's as she got power back before I did but I could not go off and leave my cats here shut in nor could I leave my house open. So we stuck it out and I read an entire book in that time...flipped thru numerous scrapbook magazines and took a few naps.
I have a Mother's Day Freebie kit that I will get all finished up in the morning and posted..but tonite I have a couple tag templates for ya I piddled about and made. I was trying to make a tag and the mojo was not there for that..so I did this instead.
I hope ya like and as always would dearly love to show off anything ya create with them here on the ole blog. =)

About Me

My Photo
Balinda (RebelChick)
Just an everyday girl trying to find my way in the world to live life fiercely and passionately. I was a signature tagger for several years but art journaling has replaced that passion and it feeds my soul creativiely and spiritually. I also homeschool my DD, scrapbook, play around in photography, spoil my cats and drive my hubby insane on a daily basis. My faith in the Lord helps me juggle all these blessings. I keep this blog because it makes me happy. Sometimes I blog a lot and other times it collects a little dust. Thanks for visiting and being my friend.♥
