Diwali Add-On

So After I finished the Diwali Kit I thought that maybe I'd add some Mendhi patterns to the here is the add-on.

Here is a link to download individual png files.
and here is one for a PSP file with all of them on different layers.


Diwali Kit

So I did a kit for Diwali, which was, I know, in November. But I am a little behind and anyway it's now is a good time to scrap any pictures from Diwali. So anyway here is the preview and link.


Free Gingerbread Kit and New Years kit

Here is a preview of my gingerbread kit (part of the Scrapbook Flair mega kit). And a preview of my Colorful New Year Kit - which will be available soon.

Christmas Mega Kit Freebie

I joined a Scrapbook Flair challenge this month and together we digital scrapbookers created a fabulous mega kit for Christmas. Here are the links:
Togs & Corners
Trees & Wreaths
Word Art

Christamas Kit

So, My husband still hasn't put PSP back on our computer, so I am using my brothers laptop today.
This was a kit that I made for a challenge. It is available for download here.

My first Kit

Well, I thought that since I was doing more and more digital scrapbooking that I would try to make my own elements and things, and this is a fall kit that I came up with. It is my first try. I know that I will get better the more I do it, so, please be kind. I realize that it is not a totally professional job yet. But, it was fun to make and I am happy with the results. Hopefully my kids will let me get enough time in the future to learn more things and perfect my creations. Anyway, here it is; it's called Fall Colors.


Birthday Time

So my kids both had their birthdays recently. I enjoy baking and decorating cakes, so I did just that for each of their birthdays. Here are the pictures:

This is for my 1 year-old. His nursery is all in a frog theme, so was the baby shower he got when I was pregnant.

My now 5 year-old wanted a Halloween birthday party. We did a spider theme with the colors purple and black. This is the haunted house cake she wanted (for some reason she refused to have a spider cake).


Car Fixed, Computer Broken

So my husband managed to download a virus last month. After a week or so, he got things fairly working again, only to download another one. Now the computer wont start up properly. I wish he would just stop downloading things, and just get the computer working. ARGH!


My Week

So this week has been kinda long. Last Wednesday my car broke down. Me and the kids had to wait 1.5 hours for my husband to finally get around to getting us. We were late for Cub Scouts too. Anyway, On Sunday my husband and I stayed up finishing his homework, or rather he did homework and I checked it. He likes me to read his papers before he submits them. Then on Monday My husband became a Naturalized Citizen of the US. The ceremony itself takes less than an hour, but we had to drive 2 hours to get there, wait in line 1/2 an hour to get into the building, and another 2 hours drive home. On Wednesday my daughter started preschool (she would have started on Monday, but we were gone y'know). She found out that one of her best friends is in her class. Meanwhile, my car is still not fixed and I've had to bum rides off my mom. And then after all my work for the cub scouts, they cancelled it without telling me. So I show up with all my stuff and my plan and am ready to go, and no boys were there. Thanks alot, I had the whole year's schedule planned out, now its all screwed up, and on the 2nd week too. I don't have a make-up day until december. Geez, just because some of the other classes and older kids won't be around doesn't mean you have to cancel everything going on in the entire building! I am seriously irked. And it might not have been so bad if they had at least told me about it! It was just me and 2 boys that they hadn't told, one was a webelos and one was a wolf. ARGH!
On Thursday a friend took my daughter to school and picked her up, and let her play over at her house for a few hours. I actually had some time to myself (when the baby took his naps). Oh, I also forgot to mention, Last Saturday our computer got a virus. And this was no 24-hour flu, the whole thing is now infected and we are trying to save what information we can before having to re-format and reinstall all the programs. So, my digital scrapbooking has been put on hold, and my blogging. We have borrowed my brothers laptop so that my husband can still do his homework, which is what I now have to use to check e-mail and do this blog. Anywho, Today is gonna be lots of chores and things, so I'd better go.
Congratulations to all the immigrants who were naturalized on Monday (National Immigration Day), You did things the right way, and not the illegal way! Yeah! It's worth the wait and the money!


Long Weekend

I can't believe it's been so long since I've written. I've been busy trying to get my daughter into kindergarten. The school district won't let her in because her birthday is in October and their cut-off for entrance is Sept. 1st. So, even though all her friends are in school now, and she is as smart and well-adjusted as they, she cannot go. All because of the age. How rude. So we are officially home-schooling her for kindergarten and will e putting her into public school starting 1st grade next year. So, she'll be where she should be, and with her friends. Take that stupid school district. If we were in a different state, she would be allowed in automatically because the cut-off dates are after her birthday. Stupid Washington state law!

Anyway, my kindergartener is very into Halloween this year. She already has her costume all picked out (I'm making it myself). and wants a Halloween birthday party. And wants to start decorating for Halloween right now. I'm OK with starting work on her costume, but I am NOT decorating the house right now.

In other news, I did my first Sharing time in Primary last week, and my second one this week. I get the next 2 weeks off (for Stake Conference and a class presentation) then I get 1 ST more for this month. I am still going to play the piano for the program, which will be Oct. 28.

Also, in 1 week my husband will take the Oath of Allegiance and become a US Citizen. That only took 5 1/2 years and well over a thousand dollars!

Well, that's it for now.



Hi! I just got back from Fiji. What an interesting trip. I enjoyed the scenery a lot, But I wish we'd seen more places (and beaches). I spent most of my time watching the kids while my husband caught up with friends and family (mostly talking in Hindi and Fijian, so I have no idea what went on). I'll post some pics and things later. gotta go!


Just for Fun

Some fun quizzes I took. How will you do?

You Passed 8th Grade Math

Congratulations, you got 8/10 correct!

You Are a Smiley Face Cookie

You're happy go lucky. So happy, in fact, it's a little past the point of normal sanity.
You usually make those around you smile ... when you're not creeping them out!


Scrap and Travel

Here are some other of my digital scrapbooking pages.

Also, I will be in the beautiful FIJI ISLANDS (yeah!) for the next few weeks. I'll probably post some pictures later. Have a great weekend!


Digital Scrapbooks

So, I've decided to cut some of the clutter in my house (and keep the baby out of my stuff) by doing some more digital scrapbooking, and less traditional scrapbooking. I have found some great sites that have free kits and galleries and forums and all kinds of information. Here are a few:
and you can get a whole list of others by going to
Anywho, I've joined some of these sites, they look pretty cool so far, and I love the freebies!


Air Force

So, my husband serves in the Air Force reserves. He participated this weekend in the transportation Rodeo 2007 at McChord AFB. He got to work with teams from all over the world. I took our kids down to see the closing ceremonies on Friday, what a fun time. We had dinner with some airmen from Pakistan and South Korea. A few men from Saudi Arabia gave our kids hats from their team. The observers from India also stopped and talked with us. My husband is Indian, so they spoke in Hindi and Urdu, and I had no idea what was being said. I have been struggling to get my husband to teach me Hindi for 5-6 years now; I can still barely understand when he talks on the phone to his mom, and with her he uses English every 5th word! Oh well, maybe as our kids grow older and he spends more time teaching them Hindi I'll pick up more.



I thought I'd post some of the things I've knit. I enjoy crafts and things, so here are some of my projects - mostly given as gifts.

-White sweater, my first attempt at sweaters, for my DD
-Blue capelet with matching hat and scarf
-Purple capelet with matching hat and scarf
-Fun Fur scarf
-Orange Shawl for Mother-in-law
-A Poncho win ColorWaves



I decided to try my hand at digital scrapbooking. I already do a lot of regular scrapping, so this is fun to try. I downloaded the free July kit from Creative Keepsakes magazine site. Here is the layout I came up with. Tell me what you think.

Free Stuff

So here is some free stuff on the Internet I thought was interesting: -Free Language lessons -Trade your stuff for free-locally, or get stuff for free, no shipping-just pick it up yourself. -Give away your used paperback books (you pay shipping), and earn credit to get ones sent to you (free).

I also thought I'd add a few pictures to this blog. Here is one of my daughter as Princess Jasmine for Halloween a few years back. I made the costume myself.

And here is a picture of my son playing a while ago. He loves to eat Mr. Potato Head.


My Debut

So this is it. I am starting a blog. What is the world coming to? I figure that I can put up on the internet all the random and interesting things I find. And maybe in the process I will even learn something. Anywho, it's getting kinda late, and my son is teething, so sleep won't be peaceful tonight. Oh the joys of Motherhood.
