wrists, ribbons, and beds oh my!

Okay so what do you do when you find your daughter tied up to her bed? Well in normal circumstances you'd be afraid but in this situation you have to LAUGH!!!!

Last night we tried to get Sierra to go to bed and stay there for about two hours.
We would put her in bed. She would come out later and want something to drink.
We put her back into bed. She would come out and say she was hungry.
We put her back into bed. She would come out again.

Finally, I told her to get to bed and stay there or she's be in trouble. She looks at me and says, "mommy, my body says it can't stay in bed. Maybe I should tie myself to it." I laughed and left.

About an hour later, I go to check on her and what do I see? Her little wrist has a green and black ribbon tied around it. So I go to take it off and it's stuck to something. What??? It was tied to the bed!! She really truly tied herself to the bed to keep herself there. I had to cover up my mouth and run out of the room because I was bursting inside with laughter.

This morning I asked her why she did that, and her reply was, "I didn't want my body to run away from the bed so I tied myself to it!" arlighty then. I was speechless.

Nichole, you hot thing you!!!

So today Nichole came by so I could take her head shot for our fourth book. I'm so excited she's a part of it!! She did such a great job!!!
Her head shots came out so good! I didn't post them but everyone will be able to see them when the book comes out.

She was fooling around against the wall (being silly while I was trying to take her pics) so I decided to snap away. That's how I got the first picture. I love how it came out. She then grabbed Sassy, Angel's dog and I took these. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these pictures!! Sassy looks so adorable. She loves to have her picture taken. These are by far my favorite of her.

If you haven't met Nichole, she is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet!! My kids love her! Especially Angel. She always has terrific things to say about everyone! Oh and she looks *mavulous* in rollers!LOL
I am so blessed to have her as my friend! Love ya girl!

scrapping because I want too...not because I have to.

It's sad when I can't remember the last time I scrapped for myself. I've been working on so many assignments and traveling that I haven't been able to get any scrapping done. So last night I was working on the store and decided to do some remodeling. I needed a sample of the new ki memories and just sitting there was a favorite photo of mine. So it's 11:30 pm and I decide to scrap it!! I was so thrilled at the outcome. I love this page. It's one that I did for myself. It belongs to me and that makes me happy. So today, after I send off some projects to different stores that I'm teaching at, clean the front room, and spend time with my girls, I plan to scrap some more. Why, because I want to, not because I have to!!!

Suzy.....You've got some explaining to do....

Let's do I start this thread...Oh I know!!! I'm SORRY!!!!" I have totally neglected my blog. I swear I have excuses and their good!LOL Why have I not updated my blog?
1. I have been traveling. Since I last posted I've been back East TWICE!! I taught at two wonderful stores. In Auburn, Maine and in Cape Cod I had a blast at both stores!!!
In Maine I taught three fun classes. I then spent some wonderful time with my friend Jenn who took me around Maine. We had such a great time!!! In Cape Cod I taught two classes. They just opened a new store there and it's freaking awesome!! I also taught at a rep show. That was a blast!!! I got to teach two classes in Framingham, MA. A bunch of other manufactures were also there teaching classes. It was wonderful to meet so many wonderful people!!
2. I've been working on my FOURTH book!!! Michelle Tornay, Krista Fernandez, and Nichole Periera and I have been working non-stop. We finally finished on Sunday and the projects were sent out yesterday. I'm so THRILLED about this book. It's are first NON CANVAS book. (don't worry we are doing another canvas book) We were on a serious deadline (the word "dead"....that's how I feel after creating so many projects!LOL) because this book will be out THIS JULY!!!
3. My family...yes, I needed to spend sometime with my dh who has been very supportive of me and the three kiddo's of mine that I swear I would go nuts over if I didn't get to spend time with them.

Okay so am I forgiven? I promise I will try to update more often! I've got so many great stories to tell you about things going on with me. I'll save them for some of my next blog entries.

Ps. if you are in the east coast. I will be teaching at two stores at the end of this month. and at
