Welcome to the First GIU Blog Hop!!

HI PEEPS!!!  I am so excited!  I love a good blog hop!  I am first on the hop, but you might want to see what Unity posted on their blog.  What I really love is anything having to do with Unity!  I have been the Growing in Unity girl several times and it is always so much fun!  I am honored to be asked to join this hop with these amazing GIU Girls!
Are you a member of SOTW??  Look at this darling stamp!
The benefits for being in one of Unity's club memberships are really the icing on the cake!  Do you know you get to purchase ANY of the past SOTW for only $4.00!!  Non club members only get to purchase them a whole year later after they are released and I don't think they are ever included in any sale!

Please excuse this rotten picture.  It took 3 hours to get it on this blog and finally my awesome sister got it on there for me, with about 20 minutes to spare.  Blogger and I rarely get along.  :)  The camera is really picking up the Wink of Stella shimmer and not the card.  In real life it is just beautiful not solid shine so you can't read the sentiment LOL  If I could get more than one picture on here I could show you a close up of the sequins on the boots.  I just cut them where they needed to be cut and they look so cute!  I have never cut a sequin before but I didn't like them hanging off and I didn't like them not on the flowers near the edge.  We cut everything else right?  LOL
OK, now it is time to hop on over to An'Jenic's Blog!  I can't wait to see what everyone else did!
The whole line up is below!
Before I go, this amazing sale ends at midnight!  Did you know the KOM and SMAK kits are on sale for 50% off?  OH EMM GEE that makes me so happy.  I LOVE them so much.  They are all my favorites!
Thank you so much for hopping with us today!
I am off to get my hair done!  I have a P!nk concert to go to!  YIPPEE!!!

See ya' 2013

No, hard feelings but you were awfully hard to get along with at the end.  I'm still winning for the record.

On November 30th my Dad passed away.
Alzheimer's is the worst.

: to be afraid and worried
On December 9th I was working out and got an emergency call from Bryan.  He told me Morgan had been in a car accident.
She was not driving and luckily it was VERY cold out.  So she didn't want to get out of the front seat and jump in the back with the 3rd kid they were picking up got in so she was in the back seat and the air bag didn't even open.  Both girls were fine, just incredibly scared.  Morgan accidently slammed her finger in the car door getting out.  So she just had to have a tetanus shot and she still has not lost that nail.
 
On December 11th I lost a dear friend, MoLo due to pneumonia, advanced to sepsis.  See grief above.

  ter·ror noun \ˈter-ər, ˈte-rər\
 
: a very strong feeling of fear
: something that causes very strong feelings of fear : something that is terrifying
: violence that is committed by a person, group, or government in order to frighten people and achieve a political goal
 
On December 13th I was going to have a good day.  It was my Dad's birthday and I was bound and determined to not cry the day away.  Then I got a text from Morgan.
Telling me how much she loves us and that they were in lock down and there were loud banging noises.
Then all hell broke loose.
A kid is shooting people in her school.  GOD help us all.
It took almost 4 hours to get my arms around Morgan.
That was the longest wait of my life.  I was one of the lucky ones.  I knew Morgan was safe.  She texted me the entire time until her class got to run from the school to the church.  Then she started calling, even though she was crying, hearing her beautiful voice was the best ever. 

sick adjective \ˈsik\      

: affected with a disease or illness
: of or relating to people who are ill
: very annoyed or bored by something because you have had too much of it
 
 December 15th some virus tried it hardest to take out Carlee and I.
Once I was able to leave the bathroom mine turned into a bronchial cold type thing and I am still coughing...
December 17th it tried to take out Bryan and Morgan.
 
See ya' 2013
 
BRING ON 2014
I'm excited.
I know this year is going to be awesome!
I might even blog more than once every few months LOL
I have been busy making cards though!  I have enough pictures already to do a post a day for the entire year I bet!
 
The best news is , my nephew is coming to live with us for a while.  He needs a bedroom so I have to give up a scrapbook room.  I have 2 right now right across the hall from each other.  Now I get the basement family room again WHOOP WHOOP!!
I will take lots of pictures to show you the new set up.  I am so excited to scrap again.  The desk I am working on is so small there isn't really room for a 12 x 12 piece of paper.
Bring on the scrapping!  And Project Life and lots of cards for the chocolate shop!
Happy New Year Peeps!!
