So I opened my own Etsy Shop

Hopefully a good start for me. I just really wanted to do this for myself for a while now and I finally just sucked it up and opened shop. I have some notebooks and floral embellishments up for sale right now. but i have some other projects in the works. some paintings and card sets. I'm working on it and hoping its going to be a good thing.

i {heart} monkeys ; )

Justin had taken me to the zoo earlier this month and we ran into Tim. We spent most of the day with him getting some camera lessons and I got to use his sweet zoom lens. I got some awesome shots of some of the animals with it.

Then a few days later I went with my Mom, Jackie, and Gage and got some really great shots of my little man and somemore of the animals. I just love taking picture at the zoo.
here is the little dude feeding the giraffe . I was so proud of him there was a time that this would have totally freaked him out, but he was all gung hoe about it. Not even scared a little bit. Way to go buddy you are rocking the whole brave little boy thing. Mom, Jackie, and Gage. Cute picture. It's different spending the day with Moms not being one myself. they just always have that MOM air about them because ....well because they are Moms. I wish I could be there with them. All in due time, I guess. We both have to be ready, right?
Anyway, Gage has been cracking me up. He has left the baby stage of his wee little life and entered into that of a little boy, with all the dirt, energy, and toughness that goes with that title. Although he does still break into the spontaneous crying thing when he really does not want to do something. I found this out when I took him to the new jungle playground they put in at the Jacksonville Zoo, he really did not want to go down the slide and even ran away from me and Jackie, the wrong way I might add! I totally had to run to get him. I laughed so hard and felt a little bad about it because he was so upset. But it was so damn funny with Jackie going down the slide and getting her butt all wet and Gage running away screaming in the other direction. There was just no convincing him to go down the slide not even if mommy went too. Anyway he redeemed him self later he just prefers apparatuses of the monkeying kind. That boy is quite
the climber!

Well hello stranger............

OK OK I know long time no see. I've just had so much going on. Well first I'm no long working at Scrapbook Heaven. . . . long story, no need to dwell. I have on the other hand, been working with Marla and Dwight on the landscaping business and has been really great. We are trying to grown as much as possible in the next year so Justin can join us. oh, i painted the living room a lovely color named "Parrot Green".

and i found this really cool "crafts" at the thrift store for $12 which has been making me so happy for the past few weeks to see it in my living room. Livie turned 17. You know this is a big thing for me. Justin and i started dating when she was 11 and now she's almost grown. this freaks me out in two major ways....... 1. well the obvious SHE'S ALMOST GROWN!!!!!!!!!!!.....I feel like she's my baby sister and that's just crazy to me that she's 17 and doing all the things 17 year old do, poor Justin I think he's more freaked out than me but it's not something he likes to talk about. and 2. it just makes me feel old that she'll be a grown up next year. i really liked the barbie doll playing Lizzie Maguire watching Livie. and I'm sad to think that Livie is gone for good and replaced with a grown up, even if i do really like the grown up she's become. oh well they all grow up some time. it's just weird to feel this way martin and i are so close in age it was not noticeable with him. in fact he was out of the house before me so.......yeah I've never experienced this feeling. it makes me sad and happy and confused but wiser all at the same time. oh gosh life has had my mind in a bind lately, trying to figure out what I want for the future, for Justin and me together. I think he forgets there's no I in us. but then I'm not perfect either so I'll just keep reminding him. he loves me and that's something I'm sure of and for than he gets everything i am no questions asked. OK I'm getting a little heavy and probably not making sense anymore so I'm gonna end here. I'll be back soon with some more exciting posts. ta for now.
