Customized WordArt

I've gotten quite a few requests in the past little bit for Customized WordArt. You know, those quotes that wouldn't be good all the blog readers. Or that had specific names in the Quote. Well, rather than just turn you away (because I so HATE to do that), I decided to give you another choice! This new "WordArt" is in my Scraporchard store. All you need to do is purchase this "WordArt" (really, it's just a Word Document that gives you further instructions on how to get me the quote) to get started. Within a day or so, you'll have your own, personalized, customized WordArt that you can't get anywhere else! (I'm so smart - lol!)

Click here to go to my Scraporchard store and get started! Aren't you so excited! COST: $2.50 each

Tee Ball

Just had to say, Happy Anniversary to Me and My Hubby, 12 years today!!!! Woohoo!

We went to Cub Scout camp yesterday for a few hours, and it was just enough to make me sick from the heat. Well, not totally sick. But i started to feel yucky on the way home, and I didn't really recover from it. I'm definitely taking the day easy today, in my nice cold AC.

OH YEAH! I forgot to tell you all that it's FINALLY FIXED! Cold air once again :) We had to call different repair men, since the one from last time messed it up. When the new guy went into the attic, he found that the...um...unit? was not level, so the run off water wasn't going through the pipe. And , the drain pan wasn't level, so it was overflowing, right onto my bed. Nice. But, the new guy fixed it all, and we've had cold air since Thursday. THANK YOU REPAIR MAN! You're my hero!!!!

This WordArt request is from Darci - She wanted something to do with Tee Ball. Hope you like it, girl! My kids aren't in Tee Ball. We put my oldest in Tee-Ball when he was in Kindergarten, and it wasn't a good time. He just sat in the outfield and picked dandelions the whole time. Shame, too, because he has a naturally big body that would be PERFECT for sports, but doesn't seem interested. Oh well. What do ya do?

Sibling Relationships

We get to go out to Scout Camp for the morning today! Should be fun. Since my hubby is the District Director, he can show up at events and bring us with, and we can just walk around and have fun without having to be there all day long. Sometimes that's just the right amount for my gang! Ha! We're a little camped out right now. Our pack is there for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, but Friday morning works perfect for me!

Oh yeah, it's Friday the 13th! Almost forgot. So, are any of you superstitious? Isn't it supposed to be a bad day? (I only knock on wood, no other superstitions - although hubby WON'T cross a black cat - lol!)

This WordArt is for Katie, who wanted something for siblings, but something more formal. Hope you like it, girl! When you're not specific, you get whatever my crazy brain comes up with! Ha! I like it :) Maybe you will too :)

AND, in case you didn't see, the EXTRA World's Greatest ______ are finished! I decided to put them all into a giant download together, and YOU can sort out which ones you want. I know. I'm not nice, but individually linking and uploading 35 different wordarts last night didn't sound like a good way to spend the evening. lol!


Sibling, closeness, warmth, loyalty - Al Sandra (I know, I've used it a lot, but it SO COOL!)
here, you should have it too!

WordArt by um, er, i forget - oh yeah , by ME!!!!!

I actually made a layout! Can you believe it? Those of you who were here in the early days of the blog will remember that I always tried to make a layout to go with the new WordArt, but then I just got WAY too busy. So, I rely on you all to send me in layouts :) But, here's one that I made, of my mom (on the right) and my aunt (on the left).

Girls WordArt Mini Pack

Hi! I'm so excited about my new WordArt mini pack! It's all for girls (see, I didn't forget!). It's on sale at Scraporchard officially on Friday, but you can grab it EARLY in my "secret" orchard store by clicking here or at Designing-Moments here.


We filled up our pool (just a wal-mart one, nothing too fancy) on Sunday (yeah, keeping the kids out of that was fun!), and got to go and play in it yesterday. The kids played from 9am till 2pm. I had to go to Wal-mart, so I made 'em get out :) We hung out in the nice air conditioned room (our one window unit is upstairs in the kids room) for the afternoon, and read books. Then, after dinner, the pool was "open" again, and they played till 7pm. We all went back into the "cool" room and watched a family movie together, until the kids all drifted off to sleep, one by one. All in all, it was a very relaxing day :) I even got time to design a new WordArt mini pack (it's not ready for the store yet) and rework my Mom and my Aunts blog headers. Awesome day!

This WordArt request is for Laura, who's husband just bought his dream motorcycle (a Harley
Davison!!). I thought it would be cute for motorcycle pics, bike pics, horseback riding, piggy back riding - any riding, really. Hope you enjoy!

This layout was sent in by Laura - isn't it awesome! Love it!!! And the one below is what she made for her hubby as a poster for the garage - So cool!!!

Sorry, no credits were included - but they're sure cool!!!

Mother Who Read To Me

So today was H-O-T! I'm not loving life right now, girls. We even went to church 45 minutes early, just so we could sit in the nice AC, and stayed an hour past, chatting. Yeah, it's that hot. I'm miserable! And it's affecting the quality of my WordArt, and we don't want that! All I have to say is, those repairmen had better be here on Wed/Thurs, and they'd better fix it fast, or....or....well, it's just not gonna be good! Miss passive aggressive here will DEFINITELY have words with them in my head! So they'd better watch out!

This WordArt request come from Lara - She really just wanted the last 2 lines of the poem, but sorry girl, you get the whole thing! lol! Click on the image below to go to my 4shared account to download the png file, and leave some love if you like my work.

Wednesday WordArt at ScrapOrchard

Hey all, just wanted to let you know that I'm going to be offering a weekly freebie over at the orchard, on Wednesdays. So, on those days, you'll need to go there to get it. I'll post a pic of it here with a link. We'll be doing a challenge with it there, so it should be a lot of fun! Thanks :)


We had a ton of fun at our campout this weekend. I know, I know, we camp A LOT! Hehehe. This time is was through Scouts - a baseball game and campout on the field. My kids had a BLAST! My oldest told me that it was the most fun he'd had ALL MONTH! heheheh, you know, that's a LONG time for a little kid - lol! The kids all found a new friend to hang out with after the game (11pm), and had fun running amok all round the field. They watched movies, and the ball field lights didn't go out till 1am! Talk about fun times for kids! We were up at the crack of dawn (literally), and everyone was out of the ball field by 7:30 am. I did get a nice nap this afternoon though! Gotta love naps :) Of course the kids trashed the house while I slept, but it sure felt GOOD!

Now mind you, this wasn't a lake or pond we went to - it was the park! We've had such bad rain the last few days, that the low areas are all filled up! It was stinky and nasty, but Jimmy was in HEAVEN!!!

Awe, aren't my kids sweet! (note to self - don't take 5 kids to a baseball game if your hubby is running the event - you'll have to corral them all by yourself :) lol

Ah Ha! He came to see us! He got to sit with us from the 5th inning on! Look how hot and sweaty we all are! Crazy heat!

Here I am! I'm liking my new big sunglasses :)

Joe is crazy! I told him to have a big smile, cause the last one was a little weak. Well, I guess this one is "stronger"!!!

This WordArt request comes from Carrie - Isn't it funny? It sure made me laugh! Click on the image below to download, and leave some love if you like my work.
