Wow nice crooked picture there I see. This is actually a card I sent in with my application for a design team, but once again I didn't get accepted. That's ok........I'm use to it. I have the new attitude of what's suppose to happen, happens! That attitude goes towards everything in my life right now. I know that you are in control of your destiny, but for the moment, I'm just sort of going along with the flow. I haven't had anytime to go downstairs and sad! I have to tell you being on my feet on the go all the time at work is just kickin' my butt. It's not like I didn't work before my job at Starbucks, and it was a physical job, so either I'm gettin' old or I'm just lazy........LOL I don't really care for either one.
I have to call the dreaded dentist today I have a tooth that is killing me, Oh how I hate the dentist, I'm thinking I need to find a new one and hopefully they will be a little gentler. I'm afraid they are going to say that I need a root canal........grrrrrr those suckers hurt! No time for that sort of thing let me tell you. Oh well it has to be better then me actually having to take a vicoden last night to sleep.........I'm just hoping I can get it done with my work schedule. We'll see. Well I hope you all have a great day, and if you get a chance could you stamp some for me, pretty please........LOL At least I'll know someone is stamping!

Whats my name mean??

This is actually pretty accurate I was rather surprised. I wanted to post here so I would be able to come back to it at a later time. I promise I will be back with some stamping things shortly......It's been a rough couple of days, I have to work the rest of the week and John will be moving out Saturday, so things are a bit shaky around here with the back soon.

What Jennifer Means

You are fair, honest, and logical. You are a natural leader, and people respect you.
You never give up, and you will succeed... even if it takes you a hundred tries.
You are rational enough to see every part of a problem. You are great at giving other people advice.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are loving, compassionate, and ruled by your feelings.
You are able to be a foundation for other people... but you still know how to have fun.
Sometimes your emotions weigh you down, but you generally feel free from them.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

Word of the Year

Well I suppose this card would have been appropriate for New Year's but I just didn't get it up here..........Oh well! LOL I love the Bella's but I have had to totally stay away from the site, because I have seen so many new ones since I was last there on everyone else's blogs. You know blurfing (blog surfing) really is rough on the ol' wallett. If only I could stop! I have tried but it really is an addiction. Sorry I haven't been around lately, Starbucks is kickin' my butt, actually not my butt really, more like my brain. LOL I need some more memory skills. There is so much to remember, I'm off today and who would have thought between cleaning house, and stamping I would be saying I'm going to be studying for my Starbucks job............:) Oh well the most important thing is I love it, and I think my management is happy with me!! Yippeee

Now on to something I saw on a couple of blogs I have already been to today!

What's your Word??
This is something I remember seeing on Ali Edwards blog last year and she's doing it again this year!
You choose a word to represent the New year for yourself. I think I have come up with the perfect word for me and my KIDS!

Now this word has many meanings, and I'm not going to list them all, I'm only going to list the most important one that pertains to myself and the kids, and it's the definition that is on the stamp from Define your Life (Stampin' UP!)

{Jur-nee} n. An experience or process that leaves you changed, trail of experience. From here to there.

Now if any of you have read my blog you no that the kids and I are on a major journey of sorts through this next year. The divorce, my new job, a whole new living experience, and everything that goes along with a divorce. All the good and the bad. Am I prepared, yes I believe so. But then again never having gone through this before I'm not sure of what might come my way. Am I strong enough to handle everything, YES I believe so. I have become a more confident, stronger and capable person in the last 6 months. Most of all I feel I have become a more Emotionally stronger person. Is this all my doing? No it definitely isn't but it is partly my doing. Is it partly due to my soon to be ex? Yes in a big way, but yet it is also due to myself, and the few friends and family that no me the best (you all know exactly who you are!) One person has shown me and given me my self esteem back, and taught me that I am a good and beautiful person on the inside which is where it counts the most, but also on the outside. Another person has taught me that Yes I can stand up for myself, and stay true to my feelings, and that they aren't wrong. I could go on forever about all of this but just know if I can do it, anyone can do it! My journey will definitely leave myself and the kids changed, hopefully all for the good, but I am prepared for whatever comes my way. I am confident that WE will all be better people in the end for having gone through this JOURNEY!
Thanks for reading through this whole Philosophical moment with me if you have read this far, and I hope that you take a minute of your time to ponder this thought, and one of my goals is to make a frame or something similar to hang in my living room somewhere, where I will see my word everyday, and be reminded that no matter how hard it gets this journey will be not only a year long process but a life long process also, and that we can do it!

Such nice shadows in this picture, I'm not quite sure what happened, and of course looking at it, I didn't get up close enough so you could see any detail. Oh well such is my luck, I'm not even sure when I took the picture. I just realized that I hadn't posted it yet. The image is actually a sticker, I only watercolored in the box around the flower. I needed a quick card for a friend, so this is what I came up with. I can't believe I'm a stamper and here I was making a card with a sticker. What's up with that?
I wanted to take a quick minute and let anyone who read's my blog that I got my job at starbucks and I start training on Wed. I'm excited, I think I will be able to move up in the company fairly quick. So with that said hopefully the kids and I will be able to live on my little income alone for a bit. I still have to figure a way to get soon to be x-hubby out of the house, or find him someplace to live rather that he can affford to pay his rent and my child support. It would make my life so much easier I swear, and the kids I think, because then we could get on a schecule that works for us, and everyone will know what is expected of each of them. With me working now, unfortunately the boys are going to have to be a bit more responsible, they are going to be 11 in Feb. so I don't think I will be asking too much of them. What do you all think is acceptable to ask of 11 and 14 year old children, the 11 yr olds being boys and the 14 yr old is my daughter? Just looking for ideas. I'm going to try my best to make sure that Payton is left with the boys too much, because that is NOT her responsibility. It was mine when I was younger and I hated that so much, so I will do my best not to do that to her.
Well hopefully today at sometime I get my rear end down stairs and whip up some spectacular card designs to submit to a design team call, I had a card all figured out in my head but then of course we all know how that goes sometimes, it just never works out on paper..........LOL Hope you all have a wonderful 2008!
