Saying goodbye to 2012

Well, here we are again at the end of another year.  2012 was both good and bad, happy and sad.... I am thrilled to see it go, and so excited to see what 2013 will bring for not only us, but our friends and extended family as well.  

Scrapwise, I have a few 'resolutions' shall we say.... more like, CHELSEA YOU NEED TO SCRAP MORE.  I need to make my crafty side of me a priority, and schedule in time for it like I do for everything else.  Life is busy, but I miss it.  I miss being creative, I miss seeing my pictures come to life on the paper.... I just miss the way it makes me feel.

I will still be with Love is in the Details, like I have been very proudly since 2007.  Hopefully we can come up with some fun stuff for everyone this year!  Lori had a big year in moving the store AND her own home, to Winkler... it's a beautiful store!!!

Happy New Year to everyone, and I hope that 2013 is a fantastic year for you all!!

My apologies!!!

I'm surprised that Lori hasn't slapped my fingers yet for not posting since OCTOBER.  Ack!!  Sorry about that!!  Things around here have been busy, sad, happy, and everything in between.

First off, 2 of my kiddos had birthdays the first week of November!  Jackson hit the double digits and Makenna is now 7!  Time flies when you are having fun!!

Secondly, we lost a friend tragically on November 18th in a plane crash just outside of our little town... he was a wonderful pilot, brother, son, and father, had a great personality and sense of humor, and he treated his friends and family like gold.  Rest in paradise, Mark.... your pilot wings that you earned so well have now taken you even higher....

And then, we spent a weekend in Winnipeg for How to Train Your Dragon at the MTS Centre, and it was absolutely AMAZING!!!!  


I have decided to do a fun little photo challenge from and I hope that you'll have some fun with it too!!!

Here is Day 1 - me

I am a mother, a girlfriend, a friend, a sister, a daughter, a granddaughter, a maid, a chauffeur, a chef, a nurse, and about a million other things.... and I also work part time at our local bank.  I love life, I am strong and determined, stubborn perhaps.... but always try to find the positive in any situation.  That is me.

I promise to attempt to post more often.  Promise.  LOL
