I am stopping by quickly to wish you all a very safe and Happy New Year! This time of year always gets you thinking about the past year and things you would like to change,choices you wish you would have made differently.
I am so thankful for so many things.
My husband
My faith
my kids
my work
my creativeness
so many more things i could go on and on.
With the way this world is going right now, economically, wars, sickness it would be so easy to focus on the negative and roll up in a corner and put a cover over my head and rock back and forth. But, I am going to focus on what we have and it is so much! I am also going to make some changes both physically and mentally. Oh, i say that every year...this YEAR will be DIFFERENT!
Okay I am off be safe and I will sign off with what I tell my kids almost everyday
"make wise choices"
See you in 09!
with pics! :)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I wanted post real fast and let you all know that I am so grateful for my blog friends. I promise to be better at posting this next year!
Still finishing up last minute wrapping and a little gift purchasing as well. Not sure why i am so late this year. Might it have something to do with being on a BUDGET...Yes!
I pray for all of you out there to have a wonderful Christmas season with your friends and family. Blessings to all of you for 2009!
If you are local and want to hear a great Christmas message head to Saddleback Church. Or if you aren't there will be a service on Fox News channel tomorrow.
I am done with the office and celebrations and off to Old Navy and then home to get that family and head on over to the in laws.
Merry Christmas
and a
Happy New Year!

Dec. 4th and lots to say

I can't believe it is December 4th! I am slinging through the Christmas shopping list little by little. We have knocked off a few this year only getting the kids (which i don't really enjoy to be quite honest) so I should be done with my shopping pretty quick!

I wanted to post this before Turkey Day but totally forgot and to top it off forgot to take pictures of everyone on thanksgiving in order to put in my mini book..Yes I am a dork! I wanted to take a picture of everyone that day and then each page would be journaling on why I am grateful for them.

I love the cover. I made the flowers with this little diddy that my awesome friend Jodi sent me!
If you don't have one of these I suggest you run to your nearest Michaels or LSS and get yourself one or give it to your scrapbooker sister, friend, wife for Christmas. It is awesome! (what is it about that word that I love so much)
Back to the mini book. Did a little doodle for inside and then I will embellish and take those pictures and finish it up.
I made all the pages and cover in about an hour and a half. Super easy!

Here is another present I just received a few minutes ago. Terri just returned from Hawaii and in her travels once again goes to an unbelievable beach and it is nothing but sea glass. In fact, she tells us that the sand wasn't really sand in reality it was all sea glass. It was once a dumping station back in the day. I want to say WW2 but I might be wrong about that. Needless to say I was quite envious and pretty much not happy for her finds. Was in her office with Stephanie and was letting Terri know how much I was envious I might have even called her a rhyming word with witch. :)
I am happy for her but she has bottles of sea glass and I can count my sea glass on two hands. some of you may be thinking this is just weird why so into this sea glass thing. Well I didn't really get it until I found my very own sea glass. It is rare and some of it is just the hunt itself.
Anyhoo, back to my story. Are you tired of reading yet?
Terri walks into my office with this

She filled up a little box with some of her treasures. How flippin sweet is that!!!! This definitely made my day. It is not even Christmas yet and this might just be my favorite gift thus far!

One more thing...
If you have not visited this blog The Pioneer Woman I suggest that you do. She is a great writer, very witty.She calls her husband the Marlboro Man and if you remember him he just may well be the Marlboro man.She lives on a cattle farm and all that they do in their everyday life is so foreign to me. I love reading her blog. Her blog is a daily read for me. She is a farmers wife that was once a big city girl. She also has great gardening tips and wonderful recipes. I made these yesterday and then were pure goodness!

I believe that they are called French Breakfast Muffins. They are rolled in melted butter and then cinnamon sugar right out of the oven. To Die For! They would make a great neighbor gift in a basket with some coffee beans and mugs.
I am off to start designing some things for work. But before I go, for you local girls.
Saddleback Church is hosting for the first time a craft night. It is called

We are setting up the whole Refinery for just us crafters. We will have room for scrapbookers, knitters, quilters, etc. If you want to bring your Christmas cards and get them done do that. If you just want to come and socialize with all your friends and meet new friends you can do that too! Come in your jammies, come how you want. There is going to be yummy food too! Can't beat that. The cost is 10 dollars and you can pay that at the door. No need to sign up just come! We are also offering classes. ( that is an extra fee of 10 dollars) Moi will be teaching a Christmas frame. If you haven't had a chance to check out the Refinery this is your perfect chance.
There is more info at Stephanie Ackerman's blog. go check it out. If you read my blog and you make it there tomorrow night please stop by and say hello! Make sure you bring a friend!
That is all I have for right now. Oh no it isn't. go check this out too. Freckle Friends is having Merry Days all month long. I will be doing a prompt for them this month as well.
I better go lots going on and it is already 11:00 am. Oy Vay!

First Day of December

Wow! December 1st! Shall I say let the "Games Begin" or "Ready, Set, Go!"
I hope that all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day or if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving, just a great Thursday!

As planned ate until I was very and I mean very uncomfortable! 2 helpings of yams and pumpkin pie! Pretty much rolled home and woke up still full! A very successful Turkey Day. This year we did something different. We went bowling. I am tired of sitting around after we eat and watching football. I am not a real big fan of Pro football. I prefer college ball. So we went and had a great time.

This is my nephew Cameron with Ed. Cam wanted to beat Ed so badly. He missed by just a few pins. The winner was my brother in law Dan and guess who came in second...Yeap that would be Me and (my mother in law). This is one sport that Ed can't seem to beat me at. He beats me at everything else but not bowling And guess what I don't let him forget it! Not just by one pin either... 132 to 118! LOVE IT!
We decided that we will make this bowling thing a tradition. Gets the food moving down. If you get my drift!
Since Ed and Jaxon went motorcycle riding for the weekend,Makenna and I got up early and hit the stores. We also went to Laguna Beach and Fashion Island for the day.
It was a glorious day down at the beach. We certainly are blessed where we live. Here are a few pics.
Mak and I had a great weekend together. Hard to find something to do with a 15 year old girl without spending a ton of money. We did stop here and had some of these.
This picture is so stinkin funny because I was asked to not take anymore pictures after this shot. Why I asked myself?? I don't get that. Whatever. At least their cupcakes are delicious! Worth the $3.25 for each cupcake!

I am putting on the finishing touches of my Christmas organizer. I used an accordion file, covered it with paper and then added chipboard inserts covered with paper for each file. I am going to try and be very organized this year with my shopping receipts, thank you cards etc. Hopefully this will help.

My hope for this year is that I can take some time to enjoy this beautiful time of year and soak in as many memories and blessings as I can!

Ready, Set, Go!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday...hands down! I love the smells, decorations, the colors, and of course the delectable food! I also love the anticipation of the season right around the corner. Christmas. I love Christmas but I really love the the weeks before Christmas. So needless to say I am very excited for tomorrow.
I am praying for all of you out there in blog land that you have a beautiful and wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends. That you are able to sneak a moment to yourself and ponder on what you are thankful for and really appreciate what a wonderful world we live in!

I found this picture on this blog. I love the simplicity of it. Not to mention a great blog!

Here are a few things that I am thankful for:
*Fall like weather here in So Cal.
*supportive friends
*My family
*yummy vanilla coffee and creamer
*The Slice from my sweet friend Jodi
*pumpkin pie, latte and ooey gooey pumpkin cake
*inspiration from Blog land from people that don't even realize that they are inspiring!

What are you thankful for? Leave me a comment and you just may find yourself thankful for a little prize.
One more thing before I go.

Have you purchased this yet?

Lain's book came out this last week. A great little read. Link to her blog and go get a little snippet of her book. She is so stinkin funny! You will not be disappointed!
Also, this came out this week as well.
Not only a great read but a great not so expensive gift. Great for teachers, mailman, milkman, your barista, neighbors. If you live in Orange County give one to your non church friends with an invitation to join you for the service at Saddleback.
I have tons to and not a lot of time to do it all in.

Happy Thanksgiving dear sweet blog friends!

Now I will go home today after work and wonder why my house is a disaster. No time to pick up. That means a new week to regroup and start all over again! Gotta Love It! This crazy thing we call life!

Please keep southern California in your prayers as we are in Firestorm 2008. Seems to be an every year occurrence. My heart just breaks for those families that have lost their homes to the fires. And again the fires are under investigation. some lunatic just may well be responsible for all of it! I just really don't get that.

Happy Monday to all of you today!

much needed attention

Today is my bible study day and lunch with the girls. This day I look forward to every week. It is my time to refuel and regroup. Mid week. So much going on right now. It has been hard to catch my breath at times.

So i am going to come home and attend to what I have been ignoring or at least doing the bare minimum. You know like not running out of underwear. Although i have been known to tell the kids to turn their undergarments inside out...not really but it has been a thought. Or maybe go commando.
so here is what I will be doing after lunch today

is this plant hideous or what. i am done trying to nurse it back. It ain't comin back. will be putting that in the trash today and finding a new pretty plant for that spot.

Lots and lots of laundry. I not only have every day laundry but the rugs need to be cleaned, curtains need to be tended to. Oh my so much laundry!

Last but not least...

Yard work. I love Fall. Love it. I hate leaves. I used to make fun of my MIL in regards to leaves. She never and i mean NEVER has a loose leaf on her yard. I now get it! Plus weeding needs to be done and there are some dead plants as well that need to be replaced.
I am going to put myself out there and probably not really going to get to the yard work but at least I know it needs to be done.

Here is a little sneak peek of a project I did a couple of weeks ago. Again with our cornucopia line. I just really love this line, The colors are FABuLouS!

A little hint a fake pumpkin, mambi cornucopia paper and embellishments and a little tacky glue and you might just be able to figure it out. :)

For you local gals there just might be a little news that I hopefully will be bale to tell you about after Friday. Her and I have something up our sleeves!

One more thing:

Let's all try to be thankful this month. After all, it is the month of Thanksgiving. No other time to be thankful for where we live, what we have, who is in our life and all the little things that add up to this great life.

Happy Veteran's Day and a little of that and this

so today the kids are off...for the second day in a row! AAAAHHHHH!!! Today though I get why...yesterday not so much!
These days off are really a nuisance for the working Mom. Why is it they always plan their days off when I am working. I really have no room to complain because I do only work part time but since it is my blog and I can say what I want I will complain!

Don't forget to let your veteran's in your life know how thankful you are for going our there and fighting for our FREEDOM! Thank you sometimes just doesn't seem to be BIG enough!

Yesterday at Mambi we had a somewhat of a little Red Alert. Michaels needed stuff and it needed to be there ASAP! Those mock up girls needed some serious help so I was in the mock up room cutting and glittering, and whatever else that needed to get done so they could ship off what needed to be shipped off by 5:00 p.m. yesterday. We got it done and so today they can relax a little. Here are Jen and Mona working not so feverishly today.

Not the best pics of those two but they were being uncooperative! A little camera shy you might say. These girls work very hard and usually at a very fast pace because something always needed to be done yesterday. Hats off to the mock up gals!

A very dear friend Lain has a her first book being released this month. Lain is a contributing editor/writer for Simple Scrapbooks. I am sure if you have read that magazine you have read her work or seen her work!
Here is a link to get a sneak peek and preorder if you find you must have it! Which I know you will want to do. :)

Here is a little picture of the book.
From what I have already read from the actual book it is a must read! Lain is one of the funniest gals I know. This book will make a fabulous Christmas gift for that person who loves scrapbooking. All the little scenarios that take place because of the love of this hobby scrapbooking. You will seriously relate to all her stories! Go out and get yourself one and then pick one up for your friend! Plus who doesn't need a good laugh every once in awhile!
Alright I am off to get to work. Have yourselves a beautiful Veteran's Day!

just had to post another

i have been doing some blog surfing. wanting to see what everyone else out there is thinking and feeling since the big election.

i found this here I just happen to stumble across Elizabeth's blog from some other blog. You know how that goes. Great blog. Very thought provoking and she encourages comments. Read her comment rules though. She will kick you off the comment section if you are not nice. Although I know we are all nice. :) Great back and forth in regards to the family the Duggars. That family with 18 kids. Go read it. Good stuff!

this made me laugh out loud!!!! Seriously out loud belly laugh!
I wonder how long they would last before being voted off? What would their scores be? Oh the comments that Bruno and Carrie Ann would have for them! That just brings a smile to my face and little chuckles aloud.
Enjoy the rest of your day!

A Bit Depressed and Movin On!

I know that a lot of you are ecstatic about this

I am not. I am happy that we have crossed racial lines. That is wonderful. I am happy for all of you that finally can tell your kids that they can be anything they aspire and dream to be, even President of the United States! I get all of that. But this man SCARES me! Change is scary. Needed...Yes! His changes, just really not sure about those kind of changes. In his speech Tuesday night, not sure if anyone realized that he said we will have to make sacrifices. All I have to say is...OH Dear! I am giving myself one more day to be sad and then I will move on. I will be a respectful citizen. I will not throw hateful words at him. I will just PRAY. Pray for his family, his kids specifically, this country, and I will sit back and see what God has in store for this beautiful country!
Enough said!
This is a LO i made on Tuesday. Black and white paper is from our black and white specialty paper pad. Orange paper from Cornucopia paper pad. Halloween soft spoken. A little sewing, specialty scissors, ink and voila a Halloween LO!
Some of you are probably wondering has she forgotten, is she losing it. Pick a Winner dog-gone-it!
the winner of the Christmas line is....
Summer, Andy and Audrey has left a new comment on your post "Back to regular scheduled programming": You're back!! So glad you are!! And it looks like I'm the first to notice :) Love the recipe book.... great gift! Fave Halloween Costume memory: My college girlfriends and I really wanted some free candy, so at the last minute we put on old bridesmaid/prom dresses and really REALLY bad make-up and hair and went trick-or-treating in a wealthy neighborhood. We had no idea that the 3rd house we went to belonged to our college's dean. It's a small college, so he knew us!! We were shocked when he and his wife invited us in for dessert!!
Summer, send me your snail mail address and I will get it out to you ASAP!
patsy, are you wondering when you will get your stuff. I will get it to you tomorrow! sorry for the delay.
I also want to highlight a new blog from a really dear sweet person in my life. I cherish her friendship immensely! She is not so crafty in fact not crafty at all. What she is, is a fabulous writer and was an awesome speaker! Her family is hysterical! Love every one of them. Go check it out. I promise she will make you laugh. At least her pics will for sure!
gotta jet~
things to do,people to see, crafts to be made!

Go VOTE Today! Right Now!


It is our right.

VOTE because it is one of the most important elections of our lifetime

VOTE because women before us paid a high price to give us the right to VOTE

VOTE to counteract your friend, husband, family member, goofy neighbor

VOTE to get a longer lunch today

VOTE because your VOTE does matter

VOTE because I told you so

VOTE because there are a million other reasons and too long to list

Go out there and VOTE and take a friend!

So Tired...Thank God it is almost OVER!

We just came off one of the most hectic weekends we have had in a long time. PHEW!
First off we have Halloween. We celebrated at our friends the Acosta's. Good Times! We have just recently started hanging with this group of friends. We have met most of them through school. I will say this about them they are stinkin hysterical. I laugh so much when we are around them.
Here are a few pics from the night.

This is our friend Dave. He loves Halloween and scarying kids and ME! He would follow me around and it was FREAKING me out! Another reason why I really don't care for Halloween!

Group photo of the kids. Poor Alyssa was the only girl. She doesn't realize how lucky she will be when she is older and has all these boys at her back and call. The boys don't realize that she is going to be a knockout one day!
Which leads me to the best costume of the night...

Alyssa was a black widow. Her Mom did her hair and make up. She looked fabulous!

We then were up and off to football and then home to get ready to head to San Diego for a color guard competition and then a football tournament in Del Mar.

there she is twirling away. They won the Sweepstakes award for the second week in a row. Best band and color guard on the field that day and night! Rock On Diablos!

jaxon and his titan team. Wish I could say that they were just as good as his sister's team. At least they had fun. I've been told that is what it is all about. The kids having fun! Whatever!

We then headed back to Huntington Beach for our nephews 15th birthday. No pics of that. I was exhausted and pretty much pictured out!
Here is a cool pic of what we passed on our way down to San Diego.

They were doing some sort of training at Camp Pendleton on Saturday. I just marvel at how stinkin big those copters are. Really makes you stopped and think about our men and women overseas keeping us safe and sound. Thank you to those of you that sacrifice your husbands and family members for all of us!

Here is what a lucky winner will be getting sometime soon. Just leave me a comment on your favorite Halloween memory/costume and I will be picking a winner tomorrow!
One last thing,
Don't forget to get out there and VOTE tomorrow! If any of you are as smart as me you sent in your ballot via mail already! Hee Hee!
Get there early or go between the non busy times! I am not going to get political here, that will just open up a can of pun intended! I think they are all worms! Really though, it is our right to vote so why not take advantage of it. If you don't complaining, debating, arguing is allowed. That means you must keep your opinions to yourself. What fun is that. If you ask me who wouldn't want a good debate, argument!
I will just be glad when it is finally done...over. It is stressing me out all this mud slinging, protesting etc. I can't remember an election that has had so much contorversy and passion. I will say this. Must we be so disprespectful of our leaders? I know that it is ugly right now. Money, war what have you. But Bush is still President and if you ask me he should get our respect! What do we teach our kids by mud slinging and name calling. So not nice! Joy Behar of the View is the worst! I won't watch that show anymore because I can't stand the disprespect of our leaders. Get a grip people. Ooh I said I wouldn't get political. I am climbing off my high horse now!
Enough said!

Back to regular scheduled programming

So it has been a month and a week since I last posted. I would sit down to type and say hello to you all and it just wasn't in my energy to get anything out. I would think about all of you in blogland and know that some of you were getting frustrated with no new post. I know I get pissy when my regular blogs I visit don't post. Why? I don't know. I look forward to catching up so to speak. But did that make me post a new post...NOPE!
It has been a little stressful around the Gurzi household. I won't bore you with details but life just happens and you have to sometimes just punt and see where the ball lands.

Let's see football season is well on it's way and with that brings a very busy schedule for us. Practices, practices, and more practices! Makenna has started her competition season of Color Guard and they have already placed first TWICE! so stinkin proud of her and her whole team! They work their butts off so this is very well deserved! In fact, I will go out on a limb and say they work harder than the football team! God knows they are at that school longer than any other sport!
We are off this weekend for a flag football tournament and a color guard performance in San Diego. A jam packed weekend! Looking forward to it!
As far as work goes this for me is a catch up time here at the office. time to clean up, get organized. Who am I kidding...haven't organized nothin!What I do need to do is start thinking about my CHA winter class here pretty quick.
Here is a recipe book that I made for Michael's few months back. All out of chipboard and then covered with our Cornucopia paper and lots of cornucopia soft spoken.
I love this project. The colors are Fabulous! Each page has a pocket so that you can add recipe cards every year when you get new recipes! Yummy!
These next two projects were made for us from Adrienne and Irene. They will design things for us when we need them to. They are the best!

Are they not the most cutest things EVAH! All cornucopia soft spoken and paper from cornucopia paper pads. Wreath and glittery banner thing amajig from Michaels! I so love the banner!!!! It has been hanging in my office for months. I am going to be very sad when I have to take it down. It just makes me happy. Which is funny in itself. Why you ask?? I loathe Halloween. Never have liked it not even as a kid. I hate dressing up! HATE IT! I consider myself a pretty fun person and this is where my fun stops. I mean really dressing up?? for what? I just don't get it! I do love the little ones coming to my door. Now that is priceless. Just don't ask me to do it. I have boycotted Halloween parties for years. For my friends that want to have a Halloween party don't feel bad if you don't invite me. I won't feel bad RSVP'ing NO! hee hee! Enough of that silliness!

I am off to Jaxon's class party. I am the official class photographer. I have to tell you I feel a lot of pressure with this job. Not sure why?? Give me room mom duties anytime over this. hmmm... i do have issues, don't I? Maybe this is why I haven't blogged lately all my issues!
Anyway, here are the goodie bags I made for his class.
I got the idea from here.
I love this website. Great teacher gift ideas, party ideas, etc. Bookmark it and refer back to it. You will not be disappointed!
I am going to run a contest so that I can get some regular viewers back. I am sure some of you have given up on me. Always check back because you just may miss a great giveaway!
In honor of Halloween, post your favorite Halloween costume adventure. Be it your child or your self I will pick a winner on Tuesday. How does some beautiful new Christmas paper and embellishments sound??
That is all I have and I gotta jet! Have a great weekend with the families. make wise choices out there if you do go to a Halloween party and go through the candy lots of weird emails going around about stuff in the candy this year! Weird!

Back to regular scheduled programming

This week was babealicious' birthday. Who is that you ask??? Babealcious is Ed, husband extraordinaire! I've always called him that. don't really know why. It fits him perfect!

The bummer about babealicious is, he really doesn't care too much about celebrating his birthday. He never wants or gives me hints on gifts. We still take him to dinner and get him something though. Even if it is against his wanting. If you ask me who doesn't want to open presents every once in awhile. I say bring it on! This year we had to break the celebrating up. We just have too many practices and such going on during the week. So this past weekend we had his family over for dinner,his actual birthday we went to Ruby's for dessert and then yesterday we had our birthday dinner at Islands. Our family's favorite!

Here he is with the kids. Just can't get those two boys to be serious for nothing!
Happy Birthday Babe! We love you tons!

I have gotten some stuff done here at the office. I was finally able to use one of my very favorite soft spoken...the zoo one.

Love Love the zoo embellishments. The little girl in this layout is our very own Cindy our HR gal at mambi! We just love Alyssa. She has been coming to the office since she was i don't know 12 weeks old. So fun to watch her grow! This might just be one of my favorite layouts i have done in awhile. Even if it is simple!
Here are a couple of projects I did for Michaels. Love the Cornucopia line.

What i did for this was covered a tin vase with our cornucopia paper using modge podge. inked all the edges. Using the cricut is cut our tons of different flowers at different sizes inked all their edges glued them together back to back and added buttons, ribbons etc. Glued a dowel in the middle of the flower wrapped different colored pipe cleaners around the dowel and then stuck them in some flower foam and placed it all in the vase when I was done placing the flowers where I wanted them. I then covered the flower foam with moss, gluing down here and there. I added some of our pretty soft spoke cornucopia flowers and Voila and pretty centerpiece or fall accent for your home!
I wanted to post the recipe book that I made as well but I don't have the pictures. I will post later. It is pretty cool if I say so myself!
Looking back I never did post the mini hanging album i created out of our "sunshine" line.
die cut a large flower out of chipboard and cover it with paper. I then accordion folded some yellow cardstock adhered to both chipboard pieces. Added some mats of different sizes and varieties. Embellished with some soft spoken, then added ribbon to add texture and color. You can use this as a mini album or hang it up.
Stephanie has started the countdown. 90 days until Christmas. That is right 90 days or 3 months if that makes it seem longer away! where has this year gone. I say it every year. It seems to go faster and faster as I get older! so as crafty as most of you readers are. Get your supplies together. Start thinking about your Christmas cards. Buy or order your ribbon for presents and crafts. I am going to try and make this year a crafty year. simple little bags, frames, etc. Let's see how I pull this off. Should be a fun adventure! 90 days my friends.
Gotta jet. Lots to do!
