2010 was a year of adventure for me! It was the first full year that I lived on my own (ha, for the first time in my life, I was single.. but not for long :) I juggled work, family, friends and scrapping.. and although it was hard at times.. especially from March - July.. my manager was let go, and I ran the department for those 4 months.. I couldn't have done it with out my bestfriends, Kathy and Beth! They kept me sane .. well mostly.. for that time... they are also the best coworkers anyone could ever ask for! Because of them, I was able to take 2 long weekend trips.. one to the Minneapolis area to meet up with Andre, and the 2nd to go down to his place in Charlotte.
This picture is actually Christmas 2009, but I posted it as my first post in 2010.. Uncle Eric, playing with Lilly and her barbies :)
On a sad note.. next week will be the one year anniversary since my friend, Beth, lost her doggie, Mr. Willie. Shortly after Mr Willie's passing, Beth adopted another doggie from the shelter, Solar, who she says has the same characteristics as Mr Willie, and does a lot of the same things that he used to do, and enjoys the same things.
And here are Miss Lilly's Valentines for the year.. can you believe that she wanted these AGAIN this year?! I told her that maybe she should go with something else since the Vikings had a bad year.. so we decided on Littlest Pet Shop and Batman/Superman. Looks like I got a project to do!
And no valentines day is complete with out handmade cards from your child! Scrapbooker in the making I tell ya!
And here is Lilly and her older Sister Joslyn, with wooden spoons and swords. There is a cute video on this post, you can see it here!
This train makes a cute card for kids all ages! Get the Gypsy file on this post! and see other variations on this post!
I was asked by a coworker to make a baby banner for her daughter who was having a girl. She wanted the baby's name and something pink/purple and poofy! Read all about the making of thisbaby banner with my cricut and fabric on this post!
And I was busy making cards for the Bulbs to Blossoms sale again, so here's a post with a bunch of different cards!
Here is a display board that I made for work! Aren't they adorable?! Sadly, I was told earlier this week that the sheep need to be "relocated" :( as Serta and Menards have finally figured out something to put there that shows the different types of Mattresses that we carry. I've seen pictures of the poster, and maybe I'm just bias, but my Sheep are MUCH cuter! Here's the postwith the full board!
And Cricut Lites were spotted at Walmart! This is pretty much the only scrapbooking stuff that my store now carries :( so sad the selection is limited to a 4 foot section.
I was part of a back to school blog hop, and you can click on this post and see my project!
Another silly picture of Miss Lilly!
You can check out the Spooky Town Village display that I did for work on this post, with Franken-Ray and Dra-Ray-Cula!

And with the Ghost that followed us home!
In September, Andre and I got engaged! Here we are at my parents house.
And here are the invites...over half of them are made (just the fronts so far) there is no date set yet. But I'll be going down there in a month and hopefully we can get that finally figured out, along with engagement pictures taken.
And a Gas Grill Cut File! View the post here to download!
I had made the grill card for my dad, since I wasn't sure if the cover that I ordered would be there in time for christmas. Well, it arrived at their house yesterday, so Dad cleared the grill off, and put his new cover on :)
And this was just 2 weeks ago :) Christmas Day will Miss Lilly!
