Long time no see.... my bad

Hey Everyone,

I know it's been a long time since I last posted and I am terribly sorry. It is very hectic as a single mother of two young boys. My youngest son, Damien-Cael, has just celebrated his 4th birthday. I am so proud of him. My oldest son, Tyler-Dean, has been making huge strides in his Intervention. He wasn't suppose to be going to The Autism Project (TAP) the rest of this year because his funding had run out, but there was a very special person who has donated enough money for Tyler-Dean to attend TAP twice a week until his funding is reinstated again. I would like to thank that nameless person from the bottom of my heart. It has meant so much to me.

I know most of my zips probably don't work anymore due to the fact that I have let the account relapse. That was my fault for not keeping on top of that. So what I am doing now is uploading all the free kits and bits that I have made so that you all can download them again more easily.

I have been in a creative slump so to speak and I'm hoping to get my groove back. I'm going to finish up a couple of kits that I have start.... hopefully soon and get those posted.

Compton's Garden
CU ok Overlays
Dusty Rose
Father's Day
Grunge After Midnight
Other Side
Snips and Snails
CU ok Charms
CU ok Color Schemes

There that should be all of them that I can see in my folder. I hope you all enjoy. If any of the links do not work, please let me know and don't forget to leave a little love. XoXo

Yet Another Beginning

Well Peeps,

It definitely has been a while since I have last posted much of anything. I am finally slowly regainning control of things and they are slowly starting to look up. Ummm gosh, where do I start.... well I am in the process of getting a divorce.... let me tell ya I'm relieved at that. I have also met someone new. He happens to be the most amazing and wonderful person that I have the honor of knowing. He's sweet and caring and funny and can make me smile no matter how down on my luck I feel. He's going to school for BioTech which is a very admirable profession. Okay well before I get carried away on'll let y'all know I have something in the works for ya and hope to have it up soon.

New Kit and an Announcement

Hey Peeps,

I know it has been a while since I have posted a kit, but guess what I have one for y'all now YAY!!!!.

But before I post it I just wanna tell you all that we had a blast for Halloween. Tyler-Dean went out as a Pirate and Damien-Cael went out as Spiderman. We were only out for about 45 minutes but they got a good haul lol.

Oh and a bit of pride here, my lil boy Tyler-Dean has made it into the newspaper. He was in it for the upcoming Autism Telethon to be held in our town.

Now for updates on Tyler-Dean's Autism. Well Tyler-Dean had a visit from P.O.P.A.R.D (Provincial Outreach Program for Autism and Related Disorders). They are there to help fine tune Tyler's intervention and his integration into school. They said that Tyler was a wonderful delight to observe and that they had a hard time not interferring with what the Educational Assistant was doing. Tyler-Dean is a very stressed out little boy and has an overwhelmingly high level of Anxiety. So now we have to try and keep an eye out for symptoms of a meltdown and try to prevent them before they happen. That will be interesting.

Now for my Announcement!!!! Well, I have thought long and hard about this and well, Tyler-Dean's funding is going to be cut back from $20,000 a year to $6,000 a year and that doesnt' cover barely anything. Right now he gets treatment 4 days a week for about an hour and a half. When it gets cut back they can maybe get him once a week for an hour which is not nearly enough for him to progress....sooo..... From now on anything I sell in my store at Scrapping Whispers will be donated to Tyler's autism intervention. I will even keep updating you all on how much funds have been raised in his honor. I will also be adding a donation button on my side bar. Please DO NOT feel that you have to do it. It is only there if you feel you want to.

So now onto the Freebie!!!!

This is called Autumn Dreams and Tyler-Dean helped me pick the colors, I hope you like.

Life never stops

Hey Everyone,

Sorry it has been so long since I have last posted. A lot has happened since I last posted. My wonderful boy, Tyler, has started school. He seems to be doing quite well. they now have him in the classroom full time and he is also spending the full morning now with the children. It seems that he actually has made a couple of friends also. I am so excited for him. He even got invited to his first birthday party. Unfortunately he couldn't go because he was having a "bad" day and it wouldn't have been good for the other children if he went. Tyler even had his school pictures taken and they are beautiful. I will have to scan one for you all to see. I'm just so proud of him. He even asks for school on the weekends.

Right now I am making a plan with the aide, the life skills teacher and his classroom teacher to make a presentation to the classroom about Tyler and his Autism. The children know something isn't "right" with Tyler, but they still treat him as an equal which is wonderful. We are going to be there to explain that Tyler is just like them; he loves cars, coloring and movies and he loves to play and sing and loves to play on the computer just like they do, but the difference with Tyler is that he has moments where not everything seems the same for him and he has a "meltdown" and we will be explaining what a meltdown is. We will also warn them about him being impulsive. But we will probably describe it as stubborness because that's how it shows most of the time. It should be great.

Also since then I have celebrated my 6th Anniversary with my wonderful husband, Grae. We also celebrated my youngest son, Damien turning 3 years old. It was fun and I have never seen a child so excited to get clothes for his birthday LoL.

Finally, I have also had a major surgery. I had a hysterectomy. I was in the hospital for 2 days and am still recovering. I am off work now until the middle of November. I am going stir crazy as I have been off work since the 24th of September.

I have been working on a freebie for you all and should have it up soon.

Take care everyone and thank you for the compliments.

Pop Ups Galore

Hey Everyone,

I need to ask everyone a favor who visits my blog. I have been given a hint that my music player may be the problem with the pop ups on my blog. I have now removed the music because of this. Now the favor is if you could let me know if you get a pop up still. You can either leave a comment on my blog post or leave me a message in my cBox.

Thanks in advance to those who reply.

My Music

Hey Everyone,

I wasn't going to let this bother me, but today is my birthday and I sure and heck don't feel very happy birthday-ish after a comment that was left on my blog about my music. I feel today I have had a sign on my forehead that says "SNAP AT ME!!! I won't mind" from everyone today especially customers in my store.

Patti - I know it says you won't be back to my blog, but I feel I need to reply. I have the music on my blog because I don't have cd's and I listen to that music when I am scrapping and such. If it gave you such an ear ache, there is the pause button on the player or you can simply turn down your speakers. It's not that hard or complicated and if you were that offended and you aren't coming back you didn't need to leave a comment with capital letters (which means you are yelling at me). I am not offended that you won't be back to my blog.


I'm sorry that seemed harsh or rude to anyone, but that was the straw that broke the camels back today. I don't mean to offend anyone else at all by it.
