Class pictures and random stuff

This is the project that i will be teaching at Timeless Treasures in RSM.The pictures don't give it justice. There are some cute tags that go along with it as well and lots of embellishments. Their phone number is 949-888-7151. Consider this a shameless plug!! I would love it if you all would come to my class. I love love teaching and it would be oodles of fun with all my friends and their friends!! So don't collect 200 bucks when you pass go, go sign up and get a fantastic evening with MOI!

On to other exciting stuff...
Our weekend was packed with basketball and some baseball. Jaxon's team won their first playoff game. The looked great. so now we are in the winner's bracket. Kinda sounds impressive..really isn't but sure makes the boys feel good about themselves.
Makenna was pretty much non existent this weekend. She was here long enough to help me with my blog and then she was off. We really miss her sometimes and then again sometimes not!!
Here she is being a goofball at her birthday party this past summer. She is not hurting for personality. not really sure where she gets that from...heehee!!
I can't believe that i have been her mom for 14 plus years. it is amazing how time flies by soooooo very fast! Most of my friends have kids around the same age give or take a year. We just marvel that we were just in MOPS together changing diapers and getting no sleep and now we are worrying about them driving and being in a car with a young driver and not to mention school dances which brings up the whole dating issue. ugh!!! Ed and I just try to encourage and steer her in the right directions and hope that she makes wise choices. One of my very favorite lines in a movie comes from Freaky Friday.
Jamie Lee Curtis yells out to Lyndsey Lohan,"make wise choices". Love it! I usually tell her and Jaxon for that matter alot. it makes them laugh but also gets my point across.
i guess we just love them, pray for them and know that God has His hands on their path and He will steer them straight. I rest in that...ALWAYS!
Wow, didn't mean to get so deep but I guess that is where I am at right now. Seems to be what my blog is about RIGHT NOW...RIGHT NOW! haHa. Little did Stephanie know what she had started with me.
Ciao my friends!!!

A couple of days ago Stephanie my fine friend tagged me to post what are you doing RIGHT NOW!
I hadn't blogged for a few weeks so I posted something fast.
So now I am posting what I have been doing most of the day.
I have some sneak peeks of some projects that I have created from our new line at mambi. I have to say that the 3 new lines are probably the BEST we have ever come out with. The colors are gorgeous and the embellishments are incredible. I made this cute clock with our coastal culture line. Looking at it i think i should change the clock hands to black...hmm...
I love all the large alphabets that are out there. So i altered a few of them. This again is using the coastal culture.

I hope you are able to bring it up and see the details. If you are at CHA swing by to say of course and to see the new stuff. I promise you will not be disappointed!!!!! I want to show you everything but you know what they say i would have to ---- you!
As you can see i changed up the blog a bit. I had to have Makenna help me with the computer details. So not only did i put a banner which is of Park City last year. I took this when we went on a sleigh ride with my parents and the Cowboy Poet!
I also added a song playlist. I feel so official. I really want a snazzy banner. So if you out there no how let me know. I get a little jealous when i stalk other blogs and they have these awesome banners. Also, if you wouldn't mind telling me how to link in my paragraph other blogs without typing the whole blog name I would be so indebted. I may even throw in some goodies!!

We are off the UCI men's basketball game. have I mentioned that I like basketball?? I was telling someone at work this and it got me thinking. I just like anything that involves competition. Little league has invaded our household and I just can't wait to get out there and start cheering my boy on. Ed was telling the parents last night at our team meeting that he wants to make sure first and foremost that the boys (10-12 year olds) have fun. I was thinking fun nothing they can have fun later...we want to WIN! That is probably a really good reason I am not a coach. I even have that attitude for Makenna's color guard team. Like I said a good competition is what I enjoy!!

I better jam. Just rambling is all i am doing. Don't forget to sign up for my class at Timeless Treasures in RSM if you live in that area. I will post a picture as soon as I find where it is in the computer. I am telling you computer issues will throw me over the edge!
What you doing right now? Let us know. I am tagging
Cheryl and
Annie and everyone else that reads my blog!
Happy Saturday!

Mak :D

P.S.- It's Full Of Secrets!!! (you can't say that)

Loser Blogger!!!

Well I guess you can say that I can get the "Loser Blogger" award. The holidays have come and gone and we are pretty much done with the first month of 2008!! I wanted so much to post during the holidays about all the going ons at mambi, home etc. show you my tree and baked cookies but it just didn't happen. I just don't know how you all find the time when it gets that hectic. Part of my excuse is uploading picutres. I never seem to have my camera handy when I want to post.
So this post will have no picutures. I was starting to feel real quilty when i read Stephanie's blog and she tagged me.
she wants to know what I am doing right now. so I thought this is the perfect time to get back into the swing of things in the blogging world.
What I am doing right now is sitting at my desk and blogging. Catching up with tons of emails here at work and getting ready to kit my class for CHA which is in a few weeks. For those of your non craty friends this is where the craft industry releases new product lines etc. A huge event and something we all look forward to. A time to connect with friends in the industry that live all over and to connect with blogger friends that you only know thru blogging. you feel like you know everything about them but yet maybe have not met them face to face. Kinda weird but really cool! mambi is releasing some great stuff so make sure to stop by and check it out and of course say hi!
I am excited because i love teaching. It is the BEST part of my job!! Getting ready for it not so much but the end results are always FABULOUS!
I have an announcement in the teaching arena.. I am teaching a class at Timeless Treasures in Rancho Santa Margarita on Thursday January 31st. I am sure that there are still spots left call and check it out. 888-7151. I will post a picture of the project when i get home. It is called an exploding box and it is with mambi's chester paper and soft spoken line. A really fun project. Great teacher's gift and Mother's Day gift. There are little pockets to fill with gift cards, tags, etc. Should be fun and of course there will be lots of goodies to be given away. Maybe even some yummy treats to be had.

I also want to post some sneak peeks of mambi's new lines we are releasing for CHA! To say that they are by far some of the best stuff we have released in awhile is not even enough! I have been creating a few projects with all 3 lines and just love everything that has been created. I will find out if I can post a little looky loo. Have to wait for the boss to give the okay.

Well that is what I am doing right now! I promise to be a better blogger. I promise to post some pictures as well. I better get going. Lots of work to be done and not alot of time to get 'er done!
