I am the wife to a wonderful and dedicated man. He has taken on the biggest role a man could step into and became a wonderful father to my children. We have survived a very long deployment, which I feel has made our family stronger and able to communicate better. I have 4 children ages 21, 18,16 and 13. With only 2 boys left at home, we spend most of our time watching football, karate, hiking and exploring. I have recently learned how to crochet and have been busily making photo props and fun items for friends' newborn babies.
I love taking pictures and started out taking fun photos of the kids, playing with some editing and this has now expanded to taking pictures for others.
I am a Scentsy consultant and love to bless others with my business. I look forward to sharing our life with you and hope that you enjoy sharing it with us. We may have a crazy life sometimes, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I was surfing different sites and found the idea for the toilet paper on there. I obviously have not mastered this technique but it was fun to make.

This week I will focus on getting ready for Thanksgiving and enjoying the time with family. This is something that I never have enough of and I am really beginning to sit and re-focus on what I need to do at the house to make this happen. Last week I got to have date night with my youngest and we went and painted pottery. I truly believe that we loose focus on the important things in life and to soon our littles are no longer little and will be leaving us to hang with friends, going to work and starting their own little families. All the more reason that I need to redirect my focus on family and make sacrifices where necessary.

My husband has left for 6 weeks to start his medical discharge from the military. I am not sure how I am feeling about this, as it is a hard thing for him to deal with right now. I pray every day that they will get it done quickly and he will find peace in our future. One part of me is happy that he will not have to worry about deploying and will be able to stay home safe, but the other part of me feels so sad for him because he is feeing like he is losing out on so much. God does what he sees fit for us and this is the path that he is wanting our lives to go, so that is what I will accept.
I started decluttering the house this week and really want to get into my office so I can start crafting. I really need a professional organizer. I am missing my crafting and card making. I have baby, thank you and thinking of you cards to get done.

This week has been box after box after box of freight (over 90 in 3 days to be exact) at the store, getting ready for back to school and winter. We opened one box and found this skirt that we just had to take a break and have some fun with. What better way to unwind then to have the assistant manager put on the kids XL (14) skirt and to a little curtsey, then back to unpacking boxes we went.
Today while cleaning the store and refolding for the 1000th time we came across a little present from one of our little shoppers. She was tired of her sucker and didn't want the shirt so she stuck it all together and left us a "present" Another great job the assistant and our favorite associate. The funniest part of the gift was.....
It was left on this shirt that says "I love candy" HAHAHAHA!!!! Yep funny stuff happens all the time at work, or maybe it really isn't that funny and we are just so tired of cleaning, unpacking, folding, hanging up clothes and messes that we have lost our sane minds and think this is the funny part of the day. We in all honesty love our jobs and most of the time our customers are great to work with, but like any job there is stress and we have to find the best in every situation.

I was contacted by a networking group in my area that wants me to join them for monthly meetings, I think I am going to finally get my business going in the right direction which I am super excited about. I have been doing trainings online and praying that opportunities would come my way to help my family out. This just may be the answer I have been waiting for.
Tomorrow as I head out the door for work I am going to remember to grab any business materials that will help me on the spot, when anyone asks about Scentsy. I will have books, light bulbs (everyone always needs these) and my join/host brochures. I have been told many times that I need to have these things in the car at all times, but I have never done it, so now is the best time to start and become 100% focused.
As I go to bed tonight I am sending tons of prayers to god, I am praying for friends in Montana that are threatened by the fire, I am praying for a friends father that had a heart attack this morning and for a friend, which I am not sure what is going on with her, but from the sounds of things today, whatever it is, is not good. Hug your family tonight and say a prayer for those suffering.
God bless you all.

I have been trying to get some webinar training in tonight, but am finding it hard to focus and just want to be lazy, maybe tomorrow will be the time to do it and let my mind just relax tonight. I just know that all the training I am getting for myself is going to benefit my team and my business, which in turn benefits my family. I will be able to stay at home with my kids and be involved in all their activities.
On my way home, I glance at the beautiful sky and had to pull over to take a picture, it was so breath taking and amazing. God is so amazing in his creations.
With all that being sad I am going to go hang with my youngest while his siblings are out with friends. May be a good time for a board game.

I finally went down today and created a card, practicing using copic markers, this has proved to be quite interesting for sure, but I think I am getting the hang of it. I also experimented with Flower soft today for a grassy look around the mushroom stem.
My boys are planning a fishing trip and thought this card fit them perfectly :) Glad I could make their day.
Thank you for stopping by today and hope you like the card

The boys have been outside trying to build forts, but that was short lived as they said it is toooo cold out and their gloves are freezing. maybe some hot cocoa and then back out they will go.

The snow just keeps on falling and I am thinking I will be stuck at home tomorrow too, but is it really that bad? I may get some things done around here :)
