karen_ okay we really need to get together sometime and whine. Im a mom who doesnt even work(haha)but we all feel like we arent able to give100%. by the way live in gp too and my 13 month old is continually hitting these buttons so im rewiting and deleting half it!!. God Bless, ill sendup a prayer for your work issue, mandy

mandy friend

well - is there a light at the end of the tunnel? how did your meeting go/


I've been there! It's a popular place and unfortunately, we all get to visit from time to time. Here's what I know for sure:

1. Just breathing is a good move.
2. Your worst day is so much better than many other peoples' best day (women are very hard on themselves).
3. Annie won't remember your stress, she will remember your arms - holding her, laughing with her, teaching her.
4. The fact that you care about balance and your family means you're doing ok.

I can be kind of morbid, but I like to go with the 'if I found out I was going to die within the year, what would I change?', it helps me focus and get the clutter in my life under control.

Good luck!

Hope your day went well. And was pivotal in the good kind of way.

I am certain that the folks you met with are going to love your ideas (we always do!!). Either way, feel blessed that God has placed in you a position to inspire and encourage others to capture their life and loved ones for all to remember. That is so cool!


I hope the light is getting brighter for you. I love your work and think it is amazing! ~heather


love the minibook! looks awesome. can't wait to see the kit list (i think i own most of the items - lol!) i LUV your stuff. maryjo


Absolutely too cute. I don't know how you manage to get it all done.


Been a lurker of your blog for sometime now, just love your pics and your work! Ordered a kit for the Snapshots class, can't wait!!



Love your blog and how you tell the truth about everyday life and that it's not all easy. It's so refreshing to see someone else with the same feelings about work and kids.

Have a great day!!

greetings, karen ... big fan here in hot springs, arkansas ... using tons of your stuff as i work on wedding album {sigh} for my darling niece and her new hub ... married at sand key beach,clearwater florida at sunset ... if i had your photog skills TOO ... but ... did catch some sweet moments! i promise to share a few of the pages w/ you~ hope you are catching some breaks now & then and having that chance to live more by priorities than demands ... when feeling overwhelmed, i always remember that to start counting my blessings and lift my voice in a song of total praise. nice circle to return some thanks to God from whom all blessings flow ... hugs!! marilyn

I can so relate to where you are. I work full time away from home and then try to run by scrapbooking business from home...and try to take care of my kids, my husband, my house...and I can guarantee you, I'm not doing any of them well. There just isn't enough time nor energy to to it all. What seems to lose out is my kids....I'm just too worn out to do anything. It really stinks. I then beat myself up telling myself that I'm a bad mom for not spending more quality time with my kids, a bad wife because I can't keep up with my house...I truly know where you are...Guilt, Guilt, Guilt....I believe that is my middle name! LOL

Anyway, love your kit! Hope I'm the lucky one! Love your products...

Greetings from your self-proclaimed groupie (stalker?) I can't wait for Snapshots of a Good Life! See you next Friday in Salem!

he Tunnel at the End of the Light is the 2nd in the series of Time Hunter novellas and features the characters Honoré Lechasseur and Emily Blandish from Daniel O'Mahony's Doctor Who novella The Cabinet of Light. It is written by Stefan Petrucha.

The novella is also available in a limited edition hardback, signed by the author (ISBN 1-903889-44-8)

(The series is not formally connected to the Whoniverse.)
In September 2008, Telos announced that a fan production company, Fantom Films, had been licensed to produce audiobook readings of the Time Hunter novellas for release on CD and as online downloads. The Tunnel at the End of the Light, read by former Doctor Who actor Mary Tamm, is the third in the series and was released in February 2009.

That is so weird, I married my wife in Clearwater, FL as well Marylin! It was a wedding/honeymoon combination. Our wedding was very low-key and only involved our immediate families. We booked the rest of the week through iTrip because they offered great vacation rental vails. The trip was magical and so relaxing. I'm sure you had a great time while you were there as well.
