It has been FOREVER!

since I've written anything on this blog.  I've been so busy with my job, my grandchildren, and just the everyday things that Life throws at us on a daily basis.

Plus, I've gone back to another passion of mine besides scrapbooking and that is. . .writing.  I took a long hiatus and did nothing by concentrate on the hobby of scrapbooking.  So, last August of 2016, I decided that I was going to become a member of RWA National and join the New England Chapter Romance Writers.  It was the right decision and I'm happy to say that I met with an agent last April who requested a partial--first 3 chapters, a synopsis, and a query letter.  I've been working hard on getting this together so I can finally mail it out to Courtney at Handspun Literary Agency.

Oh, I also couldn't get into eBlogger for days now!  It wasn't recognizing me as the admin of my blogs. Finally, tonight, it worked and I breathed a huge sigh of relief.

So, I just wanted to catch up a little bit and will do my best to share any of the creations I may make in the future.  My daughter Jackie and I will be attending a scrapbook event in October for an entire weekend in Saco.  Can't wait for that one!  We also attended a one day scrapbooking event back in March with Cindy Paradis--the same lady who is doing the one in October called Croptoberfest.

Well, it's late and I want to get back to working on my writing blog.  

Thanks for understanding and visiting.

Gender Reveal. . . and It's A . . .

We had the Gender Reveal party on September 11th at Anna and Ron's house.   So, without further adieu, I'm happy to announce that Valerie and James will be the proud parents of a

                     Baby GIRL!!
We are so excited!!!   It's been 28 years since a girl has been born into our family.  Jackie was the last one.  My mom came up with Sherri and Kayla met us there as well with her two boys.   So exciting!  I'm already looking at little girl outfits.   Val is due on January 24th.

The Last Two Months. . .

have been very busy!  I take care of my grandson, Cameron, every Wednesday.  He's such a joy and I love my day with him.  We've been celebrating birthdays, attending CKC, gardening, going to Cameron's swim lessons, working (of course!), trying to spend some quality family time together and enjoying what little bit of summer we get here in Maine.  I'll try to write another post soon, but feel free to go through my photos---they pretty tell the story of what I've been doing for the last two months. . .
